Beckett: Murdered Medina just to boost ticket sales? No, that would make this Scooby-Doo... And I'm not Velma.
Castle: Velma, you kidding? You're Daphne... You're hot, smart, not aggressively brainy, but long legs, short skirt...
Castle: Got it.
Ryan: You know what I don't get?
Ryan: Why go to so much trouble to create such an elaborate scam? Fletcher must have spent weeks going through all the prep work.
Beckett: I can give you 50,000 reasons why.
Castle: Yeah, but for con men, it's not just about the money. I mean, for them, it's about the game. The... The thrill they get from pulling a con, it's like a drug high.
Montgomery: [approaching] Con man was on drugs?
Beckett: No, sir. Castle is just giving us psychological insight based on his extensive experience as a fraud.
Castle: It's because you're afraid, isn't it? You're afraid that if you look into your mother's death, that you will go back down that rabbit hole and lose yourself again. But it's different this time. We have good leads. We have strong leads. And you won't have to do it alone. We can do it together.
Beckett: What if I don't want to know? Did you ever think of that? What if I'm not ready? What if the idea of catching my mom's murderer, and then having to sit there and watch as he cuts some deal that puts him back out on the street in ten years, makes me nauseous? You dredged up my past for you, Castle. Not for me, and you're too selfish to even see it. The case is closed, Castle. We made a deal, and I expect you to honor it.
Esposito: Come on Castle, take pity on your model-deprived brothers. Give us the stats, was she the sexy, curvy, lingerie type...
Ryan: Or the toned and tanned bikini-wearing type...
Beckett: She's more like the 'I'm totally psyched I just got my driver's license' type...
Castle: OK, you know what, you two so need to evolve, because that little girl you're talking about, like a piece of meat? That's somebody's daughter, all right, she's somebody's...babysitter.
[Jealous of Beckett's relationship with Demming, Castle has created a Nikki Heat character based on the robbery detective.]
Alexis: I do have one note, though. This new character... The, uh, robbery detective?
Castle: Schlemming? What about him?
Alexis: Well, it seems like he kinda... Came up out of nowhere.
Castle: Yeah, well, I can't argue with that.
Alexis: He's coming off a bit like a doofus.
Castle: [Happy] You think?
Alexis: I think you should lose him.
Castle: [Striking the passages out] If only it was this easy.
Castle: Oh, man, I love this place! When Alexis was little, we used to come here every Sunday. We would run around for hours pretending like we were on safari in Africa, or looking for dinosaurs in China!
Beckett: You know Castle, sometimes I forget that you have such a capacity for pure innocence in your life.
Castle: Yeah, plus it was a great place to pick up chicks.
Beckett: And then you open your mouth and you ruin it.
