LITERARY AND OTHER REFERENCES
  • The song Castle and Slaughter sing to distract the bad guys is "Cool" from the musical West Side Story.
  • It's probably not a coincidence that one of the minor characters in this episode is named "Trucco"; that's also the surname of the actor who played Det. Demming.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS

QUOTABLE QUOTES

  • Breaking into song.
  • Castle insisting that Slaughter run the investigation HIS way.
  • CASTLE: I pictured your décor less Architectural Digest, more Guns and Ammo.
  • CASTLE: You know what, Slaughter? For all your bluster and bravado, you are actually a wise, and dare I say sensitive –
    SLAUGHTER: Whoa! Hey! Stop right there. Only you could take two guys talking about a chick and make it weird.
JUST THE FACTS

  • In the scene where Slaughter hides in the panic room closet, Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin comment (on the DVD commentary) that the other door in the panic room remained a mystery, and that they hoped there was a wine cellar or a pile of mummies behind it. (We discover the contents in 8x21, "Hell to Pay".)
