Richard Castle Quotes

08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Kate Beckett: [investigating a murder on a cruise liner] Are we moving?
Richard Castle: Beckett, I think your crime scene's making a run for it.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Vikram Singh: [on the phone with Beckett, having discovered a direct link between the current case and LokSat] Good thing Castle's nowhere near this one.
Richard Castle: [standing on a rail on the deck above Beckett] Ahoy! I'm the king of the world!
Vikram Singh: [Beckett lowers her phone, unnerved that Castle is there] Hello? Beckett?
Kate Beckett: This isn't happening.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Richard Castle: [to Alexis and Martha] Ah, my two favorite redheads. And what are you doing here?
Alexis Castle: We wanted to know how your anniversary went.
Martha Rodgers: And we came prepared either way.


Martha Rodgers: Tears, or...


Martha Rodgers: ...cheers. Which one is it, kiddo?


Richard Castle: Guys, it was great. And when I say "great", I mean after the last few weeks, it was *great*.
Alexis Castle: Does this mean you and Beckett are back together?
Richard Castle: Uh... well, no, this means, uh... we're making progress. And I'm gonna, you know, keep the mojo going by wriggling my way into her homicide cases.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Martha Rodgers: I am so pleased about you and Katherine.
Richard Castle: Thank you.
Martha Rodgers: Try not to blow it.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Hayley Vargas: [after bumping into Martha and Alexis at Castle's office] Why are you lying to them?
Richard Castle: I'm no... I'm not lying to them.
Hayley Vargas: Oh, good. So you did tell them that your anniversary was cut short when Beckett received a mystery text.
Richard Castle: I might have left that part out.
Hayley Vargas: Oh. Did you also maybe leave out the part where you asked me to come in this morning in order to hack Beckett's cell phone to tell you who sent her that text?
Richard Castle: Okay, I know how that looks, but something is going with Beckett, and I-I'm... I'm worried about her.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Kate Beckett: Hey. Get anything?
Richard Castle: [pretending to be a professional dancer] A pulled groin and a potential clue.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Richard Castle: You know, we really should take a little cruise. Imagine all the secret interludes we could have.
Kate Beckett: You mean like that scene in "Titanic", the one in the old car?
Richard Castle: Yeah, Jack and Rose and the steamy window. We could just jump into one of these life boats.


Richard Castle, Kate Beckett: The life boats.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Martha Rodgers: I told you, if you can't tell your mother what you're doing, you should not be doing it.
Richard Castle: Yes, when I was eight.
Martha Rodgers: Well, exactly. And you should know better by now.
Richard Castle: My wife is in trouble. I have to know what's going on. I have to help her. I have to protect her.
Martha Rodgers: No, you have to trust her.
Richard Castle: But it's finally starting to make sense. Don't you see, mother? Beckett broke up with me right after Allison Hyde's death.


Richard Castle: That's also when she partnered with Vikram.
Hayley Vargas: So we have to ask ourselves what if Allison Hyde didn't kill herself? What if she was murdered?
Richard Castle: Yes. By the same people who murdered Senator Bracken and Beckett's former team at the A.G.
Hayley Vargas: And of course, Vikram used to work at the A.G.'s office. What if Kate brought him in to secretly help her investigate those murders?
Richard Castle: Can you hack Vikram's firewall?
Hayley Vargas: Sure. It'll take a while.
Martha Rodgers: Richard... Look, regardless of what Katherine is doing and why, are you sure that you want to do this? Because if she finds out that you are spying, you may just have crossed a line you cannot uncross.
Richard Castle: She may just get herself killed. She's left me no other choice.
Martha Rodgers: There's always another choice.
Hayley Vargas: So, what's it gonna be, Rick?
Richard Castle: I have to know. No matter the consequence. Do it.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Vikram Singh: [discovering Castle and Hayley are trying to hack them] She's almost in. I could launch a cyber nuke, but it'll completely fry his system.
Kate Beckett: He's got a backup system at home.
Vikram Singh: Is that a go for launch?
Kate Beckett: Yes.
Hayley Vargas: [Castle's system is fried] No, no, no, no! Oh!
Richard Castle: What... just happened?
Hayley Vargas: Armageddon, I'm afraid. Vikram just nuked the whole system. We've lost everything.
Richard Castle: We've lo...? I never liked that guy.
Kate Beckett: Did they get in?
Vikram Singh: No. Another second and they would have. Thankfully, our location and all our files are still safe.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, for now. I just hope I didn't nuke my marriage.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Richard Castle: You know, when I hung up my shingle as a P.I., I knew I'd have to follow some wives. I just never thought it'd be my own.
Kate Beckett: Castle, why couldn't you just trust me?
Richard Castle: How can you ask me that? I saw the text Vikram sent you last night. I thought you were in trouble. Instead, I find out you've been lying to me.
Kate Beckett: I was trying to protect you.
Richard Castle: From Allison Hyde's killer? Yeah, it was easy to figure out once I realized you weren't just looking for "me" time.
Kate Beckett: LokSat thinks that his cover-up worked. That's why he let us live. And if he finds out that I am still pursuing this, he will kill me and anyone that I am close to. That's why I had to push you away.
Richard Castle: The fact that you even think that breaks my heart. I'd walk into a tornado for you, Kate.
Kate Beckett: And I would die if I lost you.
Richard Castle: You want to know what hurts the most? You could have come to me with everything, broken us up just like you did, only it would have been a cover. And together, in secret, we could have taken this guy down. Only that thought never even occurred to you, because deep down inside, you like being broken, and you need this obsession. And no matter what I do, I can't change that. Only you can, Kate.
08x08 - Mr. & Mrs. Castle Season 8 / Episode 8: - Mr. & Mrs. Castle

Kate Beckett: You were right.
Richard Castle: Okay.
Kate Beckett: Everything that you said, you were absolutely right.
Richard Castle: Could you be more specific?
Kate Beckett: That our breakup could have just been a cover so that we could bring down LokSat together.
Richard Castle: Yeah. I wish you would have come to me.
Kate Beckett: Well, I'm here now. So let's do it.
Richard Castle: It's not that easy.
Kate Beckett: I thought that you would...
Richard Castle: Just take you back, in spite of what you put me through?
Kate Beckett: Look, Castle, I am sorry. I hate that I hurt you. That was never what I wanted.
Richard Castle: But you did hurt me, Kate. And what's worse, you lost faith in me.
Kate Beckett: No, I never... I need you, Rick. I didn't realize even how much I needed you until this happened. Please, just don't make me do this without you.
Richard Castle: Okay.


Richard Castle: Though you do realize I'm gonna have to punish you a little first.
Kate Beckett: Naked punishing?
Richard Castle: *Very* naked punishing.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kate Beckett: [seeing Castle's anniversary invitation] Castle, this is very sweet. This is... very you. But... I don't think that it would be a good idea.
Richard Castle: Look, I... I know we're on a time-out right now, a-and... but tomorrow's our anniversary, and I just can't bear the thought of spending it without you.
Kate Beckett: I would love to. I really would. You have... no idea how much. But I, um... I'm worried that it would be unfair. Because no matter how great dinner would be, I would still need our time-out.
Richard Castle: No. No, I know. I'm not trying to put an end to the time-out. I'm just saying what if we could...
Kate Beckett: Have a time-out from our time-out?
Richard Castle: Exactly. So what do you think?
Kate Beckett: I would love to have dinner with you tomorrow.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Lindsey Trent: [ending a phone call] That was a friend of mine from the D.A.'s office. And it, uh, it turns out someone is trying to get a warrant for my client log. And, oh yeah, it's your wife.
Richard Castle: [fake laugh, feigning ignorance] Really? That is a crazy coincidence.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kate Beckett: When you were in that divorce lawyer's office, I was watching.
Richard Castle: Why, Captain Beckett, I had no idea. I feel so violated.
Kate Beckett: [laughs] Look, I know you were just playing a role, but... when she asked you if there was any hope for us and you didn't say anything, it was...
Richard Castle: Kate. I have never given up hope. Not since the day we met. And that'll never change until you tell me it should.
Kate Beckett: Then don't change. Ever.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Richard Castle: Tomorrow is the first wedding anniversary for Beckett and me, and I was just hoping that you could distract her while I set up a surprise in her office.
Kevin Ryan: I don't know, Castle. Beckett doesn't want you hanging around the precinct.
Richard Castle: It's just a little surprise.
Javier Esposito: Castle, nothing you do is little.
Kevin Ryan: Yeah. Probably come riding in on an elephant.
Javier Esposito: And then he takes her and the elephant up in a hot air balloon.
Richard Castle: [they all share a laugh] Well, the first anniversary's paper, but otherwise, that's not a bad idea.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Richard Castle: Hello, Lanie. You are looking lovely today.
Lanie Parish: I look lovely every day, Castle. And no, you cannot see the body.
Richard Castle: Why does everyone assume I'm here about the case?
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kevin Ryan: These drawers are all empty. Strange. It's like he only wanted to make it look like he lived here.
Javier Esposito: Maybe this is where he was knocking boots with the married ladies.
Kevin Ryan: [under his breath] Sherlock Homeboy's got a theory.
Javier Esposito: I'm sorry, what did you just say?
Kevin Ryan: I said "This place is really eerie."
Javier Esposito: That is not what you said.
Richard Castle: Okay, time out. Guys, in my official capacity as buffer, I'd like to recommend that we try something.
Javier Esposito: No more role-playing.
Richard Castle: No, this is something my second wife, Gina, and I used to do to avoid arguments. Instead of blurting out whatever was on our minds, we would write it down to revisit it later.
Kevin Ryan: So nothing's said in the heat of the moment.
Richard Castle: Exactly. See, we found with a little perspective, what seemed so important to us at first was often quite trivial. Sort of like our marriage.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Lanie Parish: Nine separate entry wounds. Lividity puts the stabbing between midnight and 2:00 a.m.
Kevin Ryan: Nine entry wounds? That sounds like a crime of passion.
Richard Castle: Yeah. Either that or someone wanted to be really, really sure.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kate Beckett: Hi, Castle.
Richard Castle: Hey. Hey, oh, I'm not here about the case. I'm just, uh...


Kate Beckett: A buffer?
Richard Castle: Yeah.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, they told me. Sort of.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Javier Esposito: Annika has been posting about she's gonna be flying to Paris tonight.
Kevin Ryan: And we need to get some hard evidence tying our vic to one of these women.
Kate Beckett: Castle, you said that they were gonna spend the day at the spa?
Richard Castle: Yes. Where all body art will be on full display. If one of them has that tattoo...
Kate Beckett: Then we can bring them in. I just need a partner to go with me into the women's locker room.


Kate Beckett: A female partner, guys.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Richard Castle: So, let me get this straight: you want me to see a divorce attorney tomorrow, on my wedding anniversary.
Kevin Ryan: To pose as a client.
Martha Rodgers: No, no, no. I don't think so, Richard. Does Katherine know about this?
Kevin Ryan: Uh, no. No. And, um, she's not going to. Best to give her, uh, plausible deniability in case this thing goes sideways.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Javier Esposito: George Keller.
Alexis Castle: According to Lindsey's log book, he is the last person billed for Scott's services.
Kevin Ryan: Is he connected to Keller Toys?
Richard Castle: He's the president of the entire Keller empire. Toys, video games, books, educational videos, you name it. It's a multi-billion dollar company.
Alexis Castle: And a brand synonymous with family values, which is ironic since he's a renowned playboy, already on wife number three.
Richard Castle: You say that like it's a bad thing.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Richard Castle: How are things between the boys?
Kate Beckett: Not good, actually. I'm kind of worried about them.
Richard Castle: Oh, they'll work it out. They've been through way too much together to give up on what they have.
Kate Beckett: [sensing the implication of their own relationship] You're a wise man, Castle. With a big heart. And you're rather good-looking, too.
Richard Castle: You might want to pace yourself on the flattery. You've got a whole dinner to get through.
Kevin Ryan: [loudly] Come on, Javi. Just say it.
Javier Esposito: Trust me, you don't want to hear what I really think.
Kevin Ryan: Oh, bring it on.
Javier Esposito: All right. You're a whiny, insecure, jealous little baby who shot me in the ass on purpose!
Kevin Ryan: And you are an arrogant, manscaped Neanderthal. And it wasn't on purpose. Next time, it's gonna be.
Javier Esposito: That's it. I want a new partner!
Kevin Ryan: Me, too!
Richard Castle: Oh, we can't leave them like this, can we?
Kate Beckett: [sigh] I'll talk to Javi.
Richard Castle: I'll see if I can calm Ryan down. Rain check on dinner?
Kate Beckett: Yeah.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kevin Ryan: How'd it all go so wrong? I mean, one day we're a team. Simpatico, finishing each other's sentences. And then...
Richard Castle: You shot him in the ass.
Kate Beckett: It was an accident, Jav.
Javier Esposito: Oh, was it? You sure about that?
Kate Beckett: Yeah. And deep down in your heart, you are, too.
Javier Esposito: It doesn't matter. Once the trust is gone, it's really hard to get it back.
Kate Beckett: No, that's not true. A strong relationship can survive anything.
Richard Castle: No relationship can survive secrets, or lies. Now, you need to tell Esposito the truth; that you were hurt and jealous that he passed the test and you didn't.
Kevin Ryan: Forget that. He... he rubbed it in my face, remember? "Sergeant Esposito."
Richard Castle: You need to apologize.
Javier Esposito: Hell, no. I am not apologizing to him.
Kate Beckett: Why not?
Javier Esposito: Even before he shot me, he couldn't believe that I passed and he didn't.
Kate Beckett: You have to let it go.
Richard Castle: You have to let it go.
Kevin Ryan: I can't.
Javier Esposito: I can't.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kate Beckett: Happy anniversary? A day late?
Richard Castle: Yeah. Or, um, 364 days early.
08x07 - The Last Seduction Season 8 / Episode 7: - The Last Seduction

Kate Beckett: Um, Rick, I just wanted...


Kate Beckett: Mm. Wait. Look, this doesn't mean that we're...
Richard Castle: No. No, I know. No, this is just a... time-out from the time-out.
Kate Beckett: Yeah.
Richard Castle: Yeah. So... time in?
Kate Beckett: Yeah.
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.
08x06 - Cool Boys Season 8 / Episode 6: - Cool Boys

Martha Rodgers: How you holding up, kiddo?
Richard Castle: [wearily] Ohh... this separation thing is getting really old.
Martha Rodgers: I know. But Katherine is at a crossroads. The loss she suffered when she was young has just changed her in ways that she's just now beginning to realize. Can your mother give you a little unsolicited advice?
Richard Castle: No.
Martha Rodgers: Too bad. I need to work on my material.
Richard Castle: Your material?
Martha Rodgers: Didn't I tell you? I'm writing a book. "Unsolicited Advice" by Martha Rodgers.
Richard Castle: That's... that's actually a great idea.
Martha Rodgers: I know, isn't it? Oh, and your agent loved it, too.
Richard Castle: My agent?
Martha Rodgers: Never you mind that. Just listen: have faith. Things between you and Katherine have a tendency to just work themselves out. I think it's probably good that she's out of town for a couple of days, because a little time apart is just what you need.
08x06 - Cool Boys Season 8 / Episode 6: - Cool Boys

Det. Ethan Slaughter: Hey, Sherlock. Long time, no see.
Richard Castle: [awkwardly laughing off the scare] Hey, Slaughter. Buddy. How you been?
Det. Ethan Slaughter: Not enough shootouts, but otherwise, stellar.
08x06 - Cool Boys Season 8 / Episode 6: - Cool Boys

Det. Ethan Slaughter: We got some business to discuss.
Martha Rodgers: What kind of business?
Det. Ethan Slaughter: Ma'am, I don't believe we've had the pleasure.
Martha Rodgers: Don't "ma'am" me, darling. I'm Martha Rodgers. Richard Castle is my son, and the last time you two did business together, he was on anti-anxiety medication for a month.
Richard Castle: [seeing Slaughter's expression, trying to laugh it off] She's kidding. Kidder.


Richard Castle: It's just... It was just a few weeks.

  Next: Det. Kate Beckett
