QUOTABLE QUOTES

  • --
  • CASTLE: My pony, you can't pet it.
  • BECKETT: I hear you got parkoured by a 60-year-old blind priest.
    CASTLE: Did you call me just to bust my chops?
    BECKETT: Yeah, pretty much.

JUST THE FACTS

  • Beckett learns that there's a chemical "signature" to every batch of narcotics. She ascertains that the NYPD have a sample of heroin from the Vulcan Simmons case; she apparently asks Vikram to test it, because at the end of the episode, when talking to Vikram, she asks about the results and then says that now they can get to work.

OOPS
  • Why was Dave's wife's last name Johnson? As far as she knew, she had married famous author PJ Moffett, not Dave Johnson. Unless he got lucky and her maiden name was Johnson and he convinced her not to change it to his.
