Alexis Castle Quotes

08x06 - Cool Boys Season 8 / Episode 6: - Cool Boys

Alexis Castle: DEFCON 1. Slaughter is here.
Richard Castle: Here? Like right behind the door here?
Alexis Castle: Yeah.
Richard Castle: What does he want?
Alexis Castle: I don't know. He just said he was an old friend.
Richard Castle: That can't be good.
Martha Rodgers: Is that the old friend who almost got you killed a few years ago?
Richard Castle: Yeah, like six times.
08x03 - PhDead Season 8 / Episode 3: - PhDead

Richard Castle: Good morning, my lovelies. Isn't it great to be alive?
Martha Rodgers: Richard, are you feeling okay?
Richard Castle: Never better. Because I know how to win Beckett back.
Alexis Castle: Is she wanting to be won back?
Richard Castle: When we first met, it was my roguish charm that caused Beckett to drop her guard, but it was my Sherlockian skills that made her fall in love with me. I just have to solve a few cases with her to show her that together, we are still magic.
08x03 - PhDead Season 8 / Episode 3: - PhDead

Javier Esposito: [entering an apartment the victim was leasing] I thought Peter was majoring in marketing, not medieval torture.
Alexis Castle: This stuff isn't for torture. It's a BDSM dungeon.

Alexis Castle: What? I read "Fifty Shades". And clearly so had Peter.
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.
07x23 - Hollander’s Woods Season 7 / Episode 23: - Hollander’s Woods

Richard Castle: [putting a large portrait of himself on the counter] Boom! "Hello. I'm serious and brooding Richard Castle."

Richard Castle: "And I am friendly, accessible, ruggedly handsome Richard Castle."
Alexis Castle: Wow, dad, could your head get any bigger?
Richard Castle: Can you blame me? I'm accepting the Poe's Pen career achievement award. It is the biggest honor a mystery writer can get. I am joining the pantheon of greats to whose heights I have always aspired, so... which big head?
Kate Beckett: Uh... I like the ruggedly handsome, smiling giant you.
Alexis Castle: Hmm... I like the serious, brooding giant you.
Richard Castle: Oh. All right, mother, you are the tie breaker. Which of these should be hanging behind me at the ceremony next week?
Martha Rodgers: Darling, you know I refuse to play favorites. I love both of my son's big heads equally.
07x21 - In Plane Sight Season 7 / Episode 21: - In Plane Sight

Alexis Castle: What are you going to do?
Richard Castle: Something very stupid.
07x21 - In Plane Sight Season 7 / Episode 21: - In Plane Sight

Alexis Castle: I made plans for tonight.
Richard Castle: What... what plans? With who?
Alexis Castle: Oh, some friends who are doing their semester abroad in London. We're meeting at a pub in South Kent.
Richard Castle: Yeah, but the, uh... Sherlock Holmes Society is convening at 221B Baker Street. You don't want to miss the actual home of Sherlock Holmes.
Alexis Castle: You do know he's fictional, right?
Richard Castle: Yes, but his address is real. And I will be speaking, and if you're not there, who will be proud of me?
Alexis Castle: I'm always proud of you, dad. But I've heard you speak a million times. I know what you're gonna say.
Richard Castle: That is improbable.
Alexis Castle: You'll say you don't believe in writer's block. That you wrote your first novel to impress a girl, that reading great writers inspires you, and drinking with them inspires you to beat them on the bestseller list.
Richard Castle: [awkward pause] Okay, clearly I need to develop some new material.
07x20 - Sleeper Season 7 / Episode 20: - Sleeper

Alexis Castle: What really went on in Thailand, dad? I know you must have a theory.
Richard Castle: Uh... believe me, I have dozens.
Alexis Castle: Which one scares you the most?

Alexis Castle: I don't need you to protect me. I'm not a kid anymore. I'm not afraid to hear the truth.
Richard Castle: That's right, you aren't, are you?
Alexis Castle: Why not let me in?
Richard Castle: I wanted to forget everything, so in my darkest moments, I wonder if I... did something terrible.
Alexis Castle: I know you. You would never do anything bad.
Richard Castle: I could never leave the love of my life, desert her, and you, for two months. And somehow I did.
07x14 - Resurrection Season 7 / Episode 14: - Resurrection

Richard Castle: Where are you off to?
Alexis Castle: Oh, I signed up for an escort service. I have to meet a client.
Richard Castle: What? On a what?
Alexis Castle: [snickers] I just wanted to see if you were listening. I am going to the library to study.
Richard Castle: Not cool.

Alexis Castle: Bye, Kate.

Kate Beckett: Oh, bye, bud.
Richard Castle: [Alexis leaves] A goodbye kiss? When did that start?
Kate Beckett: Just now. Hey, no, I'm as surprised as you are.
Richard Castle: Well, I don't know that I'm surprised. I mean, you are pretty lovable.
Kate Beckett: Well, you raised a great person, so...
Richard Castle: Hmm. You say that now. You weren't here for the beginning.
07x11 - Castle, P.I. Season 7 / Episode 11: - Castle, P.I.

Richard Castle: I know our victim took a trip to Radnor University; I just have no idea why. I hacked into her social media accounts...
Alexis Castle: Wait, you know how to hack into social media accounts?
Richard Castle: "Hacking" might be overstating it. Her password for everything is "Sparkles", her dog's name. Point is without police resources, the best I can do is go through her friend's online posts and look for some connections to Radnor University.
Alexis Castle: Are there any?
Richard Castle: There's one thing, but it happened fifteen years ago. I have no idea if it's even relevant. I just wish I knew what Beckett had.

Richard Castle: Richard Castle Investigations.
Kate Beckett: Hey, babe, just checking in. Whatcha doing?
Richard Castle: Oh, just hanging out at the office. How about you?
Kevin Ryan: [with Beckett and Espo at the precinct] He has an office?

Kate Beckett: Uh, just wondering how your day's going.
Richard Castle: Good. Really good, actually. How about yours?
Kate Beckett: Yeah, mine's good, too. Uh, really, really good.
Richard Castle: That's good. Great. I should have said great. Mine's great.

Kate Beckett: Great. That's...
Richard Castle: Okay. So... I'll see you tonight.
Kate Beckett: Uh... see you tonight.

Kate Beckett: He knows something.
Alexis Castle: She has something.
Javier Esposito: And you have to find out what.
Richard Castle: And I'm gonna find out what.
07x11 - Castle, P.I. Season 7 / Episode 11: - Castle, P.I.

Alexis Castle: I thought you became a P.I. to work with Beckett. When did it become a competition?
Richard Castle: When she took something beautiful that we built together and shared it with another man.
Alexis Castle: [thinking he means Beckett is cheating on him] What?
Richard Castle: Investigatively speaking.
07x10 - Bad Santa Season 7 / Episode 10: - Bad Santa

Richard Castle: All right, ladies of the Castle household, just a reminder that your portion for the holiday poem is due in less than... seventy-two hours.

Alexis Castle: I just have to do a polish.
Richard Castle: I can't wait to see it.

Richard Castle: How's yours coming along? Are you ready for your big debut in the Castle family Christmas card?
Kate Beckett: [covering] Yeah! Absolutely.
07x10 - Bad Santa Season 7 / Episode 10: - Bad Santa

Kate Beckett: You guys, I completely forgot. He said that it wasn't a big deal, but I think it actually kind of is.
Alexis Castle: It's a very big deal. We even get a little competitive.
Martha Rodgers: I started working on mine in July.

Alexis Castle: Welcome to the family.
Martha Rodgers: [snickering] Yeah.
Kate Beckett: So, what do I have to do again?
Alexis Castle: Write six funny, poignant, and eloquent lines describing highlights of the past year, for you.
Kate Beckett: [slightly relieved] Oh, yeah.
Alexis Castle: And they must rhyme.
Martha Rodgers: Yeah.
Kate Beckett: [worried again] What word rhymes with "I'm screwed"?
07x04 - Child's Play Season 7 / Episode 4: - Child's Play

Richard Castle: Oh, my god. Ice cream? Are you trying to kill me?
Alexis Castle: At least you'll die happy.

Alexis Castle: Kate?
Kate Beckett: [swallowing the bite of food in her mouth] Mmm. Oh, no, thanks. I couldn't. Not after this amazing meal that you guys just stuffed us with.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, darling, dessert is not optional. Not after I traipsed all over town to find Richard his favorite flavor of ice cream.
Richard Castle: Potato chip fudge?
07x04 - Child's Play Season 7 / Episode 4: - Child's Play

Alexis Castle: Dad, what took you so long? School ended hours ago.
Richard Castle: Alexis, sweetheart...
Alexis Castle: I've been really worried.
Richard Castle: Yes, I know. And I think I know why. Because I disappeared. But... I'm back now, and I'm not going anywhere. I'm here to stay.
Alexis Castle: I just keep thinking I'll lose you again, or something terrible will happen. I know it sounds crazy...
Richard Castle: No. No, it does not sound crazy. I would feel the same way. Matter of fact, I did.
Alexis Castle: [remembering] After Paris.
Richard Castle: After Paris. I... I couldn't let you out of my sight.

Richard Castle: And I know that you consider yourself the adult of the family.
Alexis Castle: For good reason.
Richard Castle: For very good reason. But... but part of being an adult is realizing you can't always protect the people you love.
07x04 - Child's Play Season 7 / Episode 4: - Child's Play

Alexis Castle: Where do you think you're going?
Richard Castle: Um... second grade.
Alexis Castle: Not without finishing your breakfast.
Richard Castle: I ate most of it, and I'm just... I'm late.
Alexis Castle: Come on, dad, just one more bite.
Richard Castle: Alexis, I'm not a...

Alexis Castle: [handing him a paper bag] Now don't forget your lunch.
Richard Castle: [leading Beckett to the front door] Okay, you're right. It's weird. I'll talk to her.
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 they 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 of 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.
06x07 - Like Father, Like Daughter   Season 6 / Episode 7: - Like Father, Like Daughter

Alexis Castle: [Castle is trying to earn Alexis' forgiveness] I just thought you were here for the case.
Richard Castle: I am.
Alexis Castle: Then how come you haven't asked a single question about it since we left?
Richard Castle: Okay. Um... So, what do I need to know?
Alexis Castle: Frank Henson. The accused. We're meeting him at the prison. He's Pennsylvania blue collar. Struggled through high school, but he's smart. He earned his automotive mechanic degree in '95. He's a little rough around the edges, but he's got a good heart.
Richard Castle: Okay.
Alexis Castle: Oh, and then there's Maggie.
Richard Castle: Who's Maggie?
Alexis Castle: Maggie Ingram. The love of his life. She'll be at the prison, too.
Richard Castle: The love of his life? Is it one of those prison pen pal romance things?
Alexis Castle: Dad, no. She's his high school sweetheart. He proposed to her two weeks before his arrest.
Richard Castle: And she stayed with him?
Alexis Castle: She's been by his side the whole time. Every hearing, every appeal. She's the one who wrote to the innocence review every week for three years to get us involved.
06x07 - Like Father, Like Daughter   Season 6 / Episode 7: - Like Father, Like Daughter

Richard Castle: You know, Alexis, um... this is a long shot. You know that, right? I mean, it may not work out the way you hope. I... I just don't want to... I just don't want to see you hurt.
Alexis Castle: Dad, I know these people. I care about them. It already hurts.
