Alexis Castle Quotes

07x23 - Hollander’s Woods Season 7 / Episode 23: - Hollander’s Woods

Alexis Castle: Dad, how old were you when you knew?
Richard Castle: Knew what?
Alexis Castle: That you wanted to be a writer.
Richard Castle: Since I was a kid, I guess. Why?
Alexis Castle: I'm finishing my junior year, and I have no idea what I want to do. By the time you were my age, you'd already published your first book, and now you're winning this amazing award because you followed your passion. How can I be amazing if I can't find mine?
Richard Castle: Trust me. You will. Or... or it'll find you. And one day, you will look back, and you will realize that... every experience you ever had, every seeming mistake or blind alley, was actually a straight line to who you were meant to be. And whatever you become, there is no question in my mind you are going to be amazing. And you know how I know?
Alexis Castle: How?
Richard Castle: 'Cause you already are.
07x21 - In Plane Sight Season 7 / Episode 21: - In Plane Sight

Alexis Castle: What are you going to do?
Richard Castle: Something very stupid.
07x02 - Montreal Season 7 / Episode 2: - Montreal

Alexis Castle: [Castle has discovered lead regarding his disappearance] So, according to the JPEG's geotag, the photo was taken here, and this is the building you were coming out of.
Kate Beckett: Montreal Global Bank.
Richard Castle: What was I doing at a bank?
Alexis Castle: Dad, the key! The one sewn into your pants when the found you. What if... the bank is where it came from?
Richard Castle: A safe deposit box.
Alexis Castle: It's the right size.
Richard Castle: We need to get up there. This is the break we've been waiting for.
Kate Beckett: Okay, fine. We'll go this weekend.
Richard Castle: We can't wait for the weekend. We gotta go now.
Kate Beckett: I'm in the middle of a case.
Richard Castle: Fine. I'll go. Montreal's a short flight, I'll be there and back in a couple of hours.
Kate Beckett: No! Not after everything we've been through. You're not going alone.
Alexis Castle: She's right, dad. You can't go by yourself. I'll go with you.
Richard Castle: Yes. Yes, she'll go with me.
Kate Beckett: We have no idea what's out there. No idea who's out there. That's too risky.
Richard Castle: It's Canada. How risky could it be? And need I remind you, I'm a grown man. I don't need to ask your permission. That being said, please, please, please can I... can I... can I go?
Kate Beckett: [giving in] Okay, fine. But only because I know you're not gonna do anything stupid if she's with you. Don't let him do anything stupid.
Alexis Castle: Promise.
07x01 - Driven Season 7 / Episode 1: - Driven

Kate Beckett: Was he going through anything that I didn't know about?
Martha Rodgers: Like what?
Kate Beckett: Pressure that he was under that he kept to himself.
Alexis Castle: Of course not. Right, Gram?
Martha Rodgers: No, no, no, no. I would've noticed.
Kate Beckett: And what about the wedding? Did he have any misgivings?
Martha Rodgers: Misgivings? Katherine. That was the farthest thing from his mind. He couldn't wait to be married to you.
Alexis Castle: You don't think he'd just walk away, do you?
Kate Beckett: No.
Martha Rodgers: Then what's going on here?
Kate Beckett: I don't know. But there's got to be another explanation.
06x23 - For Better Or Worse Season 6 / Episode 23: - For Better Or Worse

Martha Rodgers: 297 wedding guests. It's a minor miracle, our final total is below 300.
Richard Castle: There. I am done. Five hundred autographed copies of "Wild Storm". My pre-wedding signing obligations are finished.
Alexis Castle: Good. Now sign this.
Richard Castle: What's this one?
Alexis Castle: Final payment for the rooftop venue.
Richard Castle: You mean the perfect venue. A 360-degree view of Manhattan. The stars above us, the world at our feet. It's too bad Beckett didn't want to bungee jump off the side of the building for our big exit. Now, that would have been cool.
Alexis Castle: The tuxes will be in tomorrow evening. Did you tell Esposito and Ryan?
Richard Castle: I did. They will be here to try them on and to collect them. You are the most adorable best man a groom could hope for.
Martha Rodgers: [the front door buzzes] Ah, probably the concierge with more gifts. Ah, hi, Gerard. Put them over there with the others. Thank you.
Richard Castle: [picking up his jacket] All right. I'm out.
Martha Rodgers: Bye.
Alexis Castle: Dad! Don't forget the forms for the marriage license.

06x23 - For Better Or Worse Season 6 / Episode 23: - For Better Or Worse

Martha Rodgers: Who is Rogan O'Leary?
Richard Castle: A guy she met freshman year at Stanford.
Kate Beckett: Oh, I think I'm gonna be sick.
Alexis Castle: And you married him?
Kate Beckett: Not really.
Richard Castle: Except she did. The two of them drove to Vegas, had too much to drink, and thought it would be a riot to take a cab to a drive-thru wedding chapel.
Martha Rodgers: You didn't.
Richard Castle: She did.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, I did. But I never thought that it was for real. And I broke up with the guy a couple of weeks later, after I found out he was a compulsive liar, degenerate, and a thief.
Richard Castle: Yes, but not before you tied the knot. And here I thought you were a one-and-done kind of girl.
Martha Rodgers: Does your father know about this?
Kate Beckett: I really am gonna be sick.
Richard Castle: [the doorbell buzzes] And that'll be my lawyer.
06x23 - For Better Or Worse Season 6 / Episode 23: - For Better Or Worse

Kevin Ryan: [getting fitted for their tuxedos, Ryan enters in a suit about three sizes too small] Um, Alexis? I haven't gained this much daddy weight.
Alexis Castle: That can't be right. I double checked the size ten times.
Javier Esposito: Hey, maybe you finally hit that growth spurt you've been waiting on, bro.
06x23 - For Better Or Worse Season 6 / Episode 23: - For Better Or Worse

Alexis Castle: We lost our venue? How is that even possible?
Richard Castle: They had a circus party there tonight, with some first-time fire breathers. Now our rooftop venue does not have a floor.
Alexis Castle: This is a disaster.
Richard Castle: I have no place to get married and no one to get married to. I think "disaster" is an understatement.
Martha Rodgers: So-called disaster is merely opportunity in disguise. We'll just find another place to hold the wedding.
Richard Castle: Are you kidding? Where are we gonna find a venue in Manhattan that holds 300 people, in less than two days?
Alexis Castle: [getting an idea] Ooh! We already have one. Not in Manhattan. We can move the whole party to our house in the Hamptons.
Richard Castle: [liking the idea] Yes. Yes! We've held larger parties than this out there.
Alexis Castle: We rent luxury buses to shuttle our guests and pay the vendors' transportation costs.
Martha Rodgers: Brilliant! I will call the housekeeper first thing in the morning and have them start getting the place ready.
Richard Castle: Do you really think we can pull this off?
Martha Rodgers: Oh, please! I once staged "A Chorus Line" on a subway platform when our company lost its space. I think I can move a wedding. Alexis will help with everything. You just make sure Katherine finds that deadbeat husband of hers.
06x21 - Law & Boarder Season 6 / Episode 21: - Law & Boarder

Richard Castle: H-O-I-V-L. "Hoilv". "Vlohi". Hovil! No, that's not a word, either.
Kate Beckett: Did you seriously stay up staring at this Scrabble board all night instead of going to bed?
Richard Castle: With these five remaining tiles, I have to craft a word scoring nine points. Then I turn defeat into victory.
Alexis Castle: [coming downstairs] Oh, my gosh. Did you really beat dad at Scrabble?
Richard Castle: I concede nothing. Except that I need more coffee.
Martha Rodgers: That is quite an accomplishment, young lady. Nobody beats him, ever.
Kate Beckett: Oh, yeah, he's mentioned that. Repeatedly.
Martha Rodgers: Ah, how the mighty have fallen.
Richard Castle: "Richard Castle, one word short." I cannot allow this to be my epitaph.

Richard Castle: I saw that.
06x16 - Room 147 Season 6 / Episode 16: - Room 147

Richard Castle: [in bed with Beckett] Do I smell coffee?
Kate Beckett: [sleepily] If you do, it was made by elves.

Richard Castle: [starting] OOH!
Alexis Castle: AHH!
Richard Castle: Geez!
Alexis Castle: You scared me.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, I think we all just kick-started our day.
06x16 - Room 147 Season 6 / Episode 16: - Room 147

Kate Beckett: Thanks for meeting with me.
Alexis Castle: Yeah. What's so important?
Kate Beckett: Um... you know that I don't take sides on anything between you and your dad, right?
Alexis Castle: Yeah, I appreciate that.
Kate Beckett: Okay, well, your dad wants you to move back home. And I know that you said you have a lease, but you also said that there were other reasons why you didn't want to move back, and I just... I wanna make sure that one of those reasons isn't me.
Alexis Castle: Oh, no. No, no, it's... it's not you at all.
Kate Beckett: Are you sure? 'Cause the last thing I wanna do is make you feel unwelcome in your own home.
Alexis Castle: No, it's not you. It's me. All those things my dad said when I was moving out, about me making a mistake moving in with my boyfriend, he was right. I can see it so clearly now. Why didn't I then?
Kate Beckett: You were in the love haze.
Alexis Castle: The love haze?
Kate Beckett: It's like a drug. It makes intelligent people do... stupid things. And then it clears and you look around and you wonder "What was I thinking?". Your dad just wants to help. It's okay to let him.
Alexis Castle: Yes, but this was my mistake. He shouldn't have to pay for it, so I will tutor and do whatever I have to until the lease is up.
Kate Beckett: Okay, I get it. Look, I know what you're doing seems noble, but it's not. I mean, the long hours, the exhaustion. What you're actually doing is punishing yourself. Trust me. I've been there. This... this isn't necessary. Your dad loves you. He worries about you. I think your penance is paid.
06x16 - Room 147 Season 6 / Episode 16: - Room 147

Richard Castle: [relaxing with Beckett, he hears someone knock on the door] Excuse me.

Richard Castle: Alexis! What's going on?
Alexis Castle: Dad... can I come home?
Richard Castle: Come here.

Alexis Castle: [mouthing to Beckett] Thanks.
06x10 - The Good, The Bad & The Baby Season 6 / Episode 10: - The Good, The Bad & The Baby

Kate Beckett: You know, I think I'm actually gonna miss little Benny.
Richard Castle: Well, who knows? Maybe in a few Thanksgivings from now, we'll have a couple of Bennies or our own running around.
Alexis Castle: Hey, if you guys have kids in a few years, and I have kids in a few years, they can grow up together.
Richard Castle: And it's ruined.
06x07 - Like Father, Like Daughter   Season 6 / Episode 7: - Like Father, Like Daughter

Alexis Castle: [Ryan has provided a lead] Bike tracks. There were bike tracks outside Kim's house. Dad, do you realize what this means?
Richard Castle: That maybe the party Kim went to was at that farmhouse, and she saw kids doing meth.
Alexis Castle: Well, not just doing meth. Cooking meth.
Richard Castle: That's why she had to get out of there. That's why she told Lyle she had some decisions to make.
Alexis Castle: She was thinking about turning them in. So maybe when she left the party...
Richard Castle: One of our teenage meth cookers got worried she'd go to the cops.
Alexis Castle: And he went after her.
Richard Castle: On his bike. The tire tracks at her house? He knew where she lived 'cause he'd been there before.
Alexis Castle: He was one of the other guys Kim was seeing.
Richard Castle, Alexis Castle: We need to talk to Kim's mother.
Richard Castle: Now, that was weird. Usually I do that with Beckett.
05x24 - Watershed Season 5 / Episode 24: - Watershed

Alexis Castle: Professor Rankowski still hasn't received the check for my Costa Rica trip
Richard Castle: [Evasive] He didn't? That's so weird.
Alexis Castle: You didn't send it, did you?
Richard Castle: Why - why do you want to go study the rainforest for six weeks anyway?
Alexis Castle: Dad, we talked about this.
Richard Castle: I know. But you're going to be staying in the middle of a jungle, miles away from the nearest phone, hours from the nearest hospital. You could be bitten by a poisonous spider, or a poisonous snake. I looked it up. Toucans are extremely aggressive this time of year.
05x24 - Watershed Season 5 / Episode 24: - Watershed

Alexis Castle: Dad, we need to talk.
Richard Castle: Which of these do you like better? [He holds up two different Nikki Heat covers]
Alexis Castle: Dad, I'm serious.
Richard Castle: I like the green one, but it kind of looks like a giant green lizard's attacking the city. Which is cool, but it's not what the book's about, so I either rewrite the book to make it about a giant lizard, or...
Alexis Castle: Dad?
Richard Castle: Magenta. You're right. It's classic. It's cool. It tells the story...
05x20 - The Fast and the Furriest Season 5 / Episode 20: - The Fast and the Furriest

Richard Castle: [Opens the fridge] Where'd it go?
Martha Rodgers: Where'd what go, darling?
Richard Castle: My leftovers from Le Cirque. They were right here in this hole in the fridge is. I was going to use that Chateaubriand for my morning scramble.
Martha Rodgers: Well I certainly didn't eat them. I wouldn't look this good if I was pigging out on leftovers.
Richard Castle: Yes, well, this isn't the first time this has happened. Food has been going missing for the past month. It's not just leftovers, either. It was the peanut butter, uh... artichokes, a whole quart of Mulligatawny soup, gone.
Martha Rodgers: Well, maybe you've been sleep eating... again.
Richard Castle: Again? I've never sleep ated - sleep ate - eaten. [Gets a look] Have I?
Alexis Castle: [Coming downstairs] Hey, I'm off to class.
Richard Castle: Hey. How did you like that Chateaubriand? Wasn't that a wonderful white wine reduction?
Alexis Castle: What Chateaubriand?
Richard Castle: All right. It's the housekeeper. I knew it. She has been putting on weight.
Martha Rodgers: Sorry, darling. She hasn't been here for three days.
Alexis Castle: Maybe there are tiny borrowers living under the floorboards who come out at night to steal your food.
Richard Castle: Not realistic. They're too small to get the fridge door open.
05x19 - The Lives of Others Season 5 / Episode 19: - The Lives of Others

Alexis Castle: Did you ever stop to think that maybe there's an innocent explanation for everything?
Richard Castle: All right, what is the innocent explanation for rolling up a rug and taking it out of your apartment at 3AM?
Alexis Castle: Yeah. That is pretty weird.
05x19 - The Lives of Others Season 5 / Episode 19: - The Lives of Others

Richard Castle: All the evidence we need is in that shredder. It'll tell us who the victim is and we can prove she's missing.
Alexis Castle: And what if he catches you?
Richard Castle: He won't. Not if I have your help. Next time he leaves, I'll slip over there. You keep watch... [holds up a walkie talkie] and make sure he's not coming back. I go inside. I get whatever's in the shredder, and I get out. Two minutes, tops.
Alexis Castle: On crutches.
Richard Castle: The doctor did say I need more exercise.
Alexis Castle: What if I go? I'm smaller, faster and younger.
Richard Castle: Oh. No. No, no. If you get caught, you get a B&E on your record, and you'll never become President.
05x10 - Significant Others Season 5 / Episode 10: - Significant Others

Richard Castle: Your throat feel any better?
Alexis Castle: Why'd I have to get mono?
Richard Castle: Well, it's called the kissing disease for a reason. I assume you and Max were... I'm going to stop right there.
Alexis Castle: I think that's best.
05x09 - Secret Santa Season 5 / Episode 9: - Secret Santa

Richard Castle: [sitting down for Christmas dinner] Mother, the glogg is excellent. And everything looks excellent.
Martha Rodgers: Thank you.
Richard Castle: Just like always.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, Richard. Richard, darling, you don't have to look so miserable.
Richard Castle: Oh, no...
Alexis Castle: She's right, dad. We know how much this tradition means to you, so we both decided to cancel our plans. We're here all night, like always.
Richard Castle: I love you both so much that you would do that for me. But I was wrong about tonight. There's someplace I need to be.
Alexis Castle: Dad, I...
Martha Rodgers: Go. Go, go, go.

Richard Castle: Uh... Uh... I was just coming to see you.
Kate Beckett: I was coming to see you.
Richard Castle: What about your shift?
Kate Beckett: I got Karpowski to cover. What about your family tradition?
Richard Castle: Um... I was just thinking it's time for a new tradition.
Kate Beckett: Me, too.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, for god sakes, Richard. Invite the girl in.
05x05 - Probable Cause Season 5 / Episode 5: - Probable Cause

Richard Castle: [surprised to see Alexis at the loft] What are you doing here? I thought you weren't coming 'till next weekend.
Alexis Castle: I had to do laundry. I ran out of clothes.
Richard Castle: [he kisses her on the cheek] Already? It's only been two weeks. Not that I'm not thrilled to see you. But don't they have washing machines on campus?
Alexis Castle: [shrugs] They're not as nice.
Richard Castle: And by "nice", you mean "free".
Alexis Castle: Pretty much.
05x04 - Murder, He Wrote Season 5 / Episode 4: - Murder, He Wrote

Martha Rodgers: Isn't this exciting?
Richard Castle: It's just a weekend, mother.
Alexis Castle: Dad, it's your first romantic weekend away with Beckett. It's a big deal.
Richard Castle: Okay, well, no pressure, and let's just hope it happens. It's 4:30 now. If she doesn't catch a murder by 5:00, we are in the clear.
Martha Rodgers: So, what do you have planned?
Richard Castle: I... what do you mean?
Alexis Castle: You don't have a plan?
Richard Castle: The plan is to do nothing. To relax.
Martha Rodgers: Richard!
Alexis Castle: That's not a plan. Women don't like it when men don't have a plan. Hey, I'm in college now. I'm living in the world. Plus, I read a lot of magazines. Not planning is really bad.
Richard Castle: Okay...
Martha Rodgers: She's right. A man says "So what are we gonna do for dinner?", pfft, he's dead to me.
Richard Castle: Okay. I will make reservations.
Alexis Castle: Somewhere romantic.
Richard Castle: Right.
Martha Rodgers: And classy, because Kate Beckett is a classy kind of gal, you know?
Richard Castle: Right.
Alexis Castle: Under the stars would be nice.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, and you know what else you can do under the stars?

Richard Castle: Okay! La la la la la la la!
05x03 - Secret's Safe With Me Season 5 / Episode 3: - Secret's Safe With Me

Alexis Castle: How can you be so smart and so clueless at the same time?
Richard Castle: Practice.
05x03 - Secret's Safe With Me Season 5 / Episode 3: - Secret's Safe With Me

Alexis Castle: Hey, dad? I... I know it's been a while, but, um... could you do it? One last time?

Richard Castle: No monsters.
Alexis Castle: You sure?
Richard Castle: Yeah. And if there are, I'll come running.
05x01 - After The Storm Season 5 / Episode 1: - After The Storm

Richard Castle: Alexis, are you hung over?
Martha Rodgers: Well, the graduation festivities got a tad out of hand, and Alexis called me from the party, I drove into town, I picked her up. So please don't get angry, darling.
Richard Castle: Well, why didn't you call me?
Alexis Castle: I tried. You didn't pick up.
Richard Castle: [remembering the night before] Oh. Right. Then that's on me. That's my bad.

Richard Castle: Well, Alexis, as your father, I have to say that I am deeply disappointed in you, and yet oddly proud.
Alexis Castle: [groaning] My head is pounding.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, honey, I'll get you a couple of aspirin.

Richard Castle: [grabbing Martha's arm] No, no, no! Don't.
Martha Rodgers: AHH! Ooh.
Richard Castle: No aspirin.
Martha Rodgers: What do you mean? Why not?
Richard Castle: It's her first hangover. I mean, this is a milestone. It's a rite of passage. Don't you want to experience this in its fullness? Untrammeled by the relief of over the counter pain medications?

Alexis Castle: No.
Richard Castle: No, okay. Aspirin it is, sweetheart. I'm sorry.
04x23 - Always Season 4 / Episode 23: - Always

Richard Castle: Either this is the most boring dream I've ever had or you can't sleep either.
Alexis Castle: It's not a dream. More like a nightmare.
Richard Castle: Is this about your valedictorian speech?
Alexis Castle: It's my change to say something important. Something worthy. I don't want to blow it but I feel like I have nothing to say.
Richard Castle: You mean nothing compared to the great scared texts of mankind, or... [Reads her paper] Winston Churchill's speech to Harrow's or Steve Job's address to Stanford. You know, maybe you pick some speeches a little less daunting to compare yours to. Like um... Say Anything. Or Twilight!
Alexis Castle: It's not supposed to be this hard.
Richard Castle: You know, the most worthwhile things in life are often the most difficult. For example - [His phone starts ringing; it's Beckett] Wow. That really is a smart phone.
04x23 - Always Season 4 / Episode 23: - Always

Alexis Castle: There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not. Everything eventually ends. As much as I've looked forward to this day, I've always disliked endings. The last day of summer, the final chapter of a great book, parting ways with a close friend. But endings are inevitable. Leaves fall, you close the book, you say goodbye. Today is one of those days for us. Today we say goodbye to everything that was familiar, everything that was comfortable. We're moving on. But just because we're leaving, and that hurts, there are some people who are so much a part of us, they'll be with us no matter what. They are our solid ground, our north star, and the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us, always.
04x19 - 47 Seconds Season 4 / Episode 19: - 47 Seconds

Richard Castle: You're a pretty smart kid, you know that?
Alexis Castle: Well, they say that genius skips a generation.
Richard Castle: Apparently so does funny.
04x13 - An Embarrassment of Bitches Season 4 / Episode 13: - An Embarrassment of Bitches

Richard Castle: You have a friend named Buttons? A human friend?
Alexis Castle: Her mom called her that when she was little, and it stuck.
Richard Castle: [snorting with laughter] And now so is she.
Alexis Castle: Buttons and I bonded over being rejected from Stanford. In fact, we applied to a lot of the same schools, so we were planning to visit a few campuses together this weekend. Make a road trip out of it.
Martha Rodgers: Ah!
Richard Castle: Whoa. Okay, whoa. Where are you staying? Who's driving? And who is chaperoning?
Alexis Castle: [innocently] We were going to take your Ferrari and hook up with some boys we met on Craigslist.

Richard Castle: Not cool.
Martha Rodgers: Honey, don't be such a killjoy. I'm sure Buttons' mother is going along.
Alexis Castle: She is. And she's very responsible.
Richard Castle: Yeah, except for when it comes to picking nicknames.
Alexis Castle: Look, if you want, I could have Mrs. Dutton stop by to meet you when she picks me up.
Richard Castle: Yeah, I think that'd be o... her last name is Dutton? Your friend's name is Buttons Dutton?
Martha Rodgers: That is unfortunate.
Alexis Castle: What's so wrong with that?
Richard Castle: Oh, come on. It'd be like calling me Rassle, or Tassel, or No Hassle Castle.

Richard Castle: Hey. No, I was just making a point.

Richard Castle: Please don't call me that.
