Richard Castle Quotes

08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: I love you.
Richard Castle: I love you, too.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: I hope I got the right dosage - because forgetting to breathe can be such a drag.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: You thinking what I'm thinking?
Richard Castle: Mm-hmm. You want a Fudgesicle, too?


Richard Castle: I know. Could be a trap.
Kate Beckett: Just because Caleb switched sides doesn't mean that LokSat doesn't have him under surveillance. Any one of these people could be a LokSat agent or even LokSat himself.
Richard Castle: Do you care to put a wager on it?
Kate Beckett: Wager on what?
Richard Castle: On which one's LokSat. I got twenty bucks says it's the handsy yogi over there.
Kate Beckett: I'm going for the Carrot Top Cruella De Vil. Wait, wait. Does she look a bit like your first ex-wife?
Richard Castle: She kind of does. Oh, my god. Could my ex-wife be LokSat? 'Cause in a lot of ways, that would make perfect sense.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: We all heard Caleb's instructions.
Kate Beckett: LokSat's accountant is going to expose himself at that dead drop.
Richard Castle: Talk about high on the food chain. We get LokSat's accountant...
Kate Beckett: It could bring us one step closer to LokSat himself. Vikram, send an encrypted e-mail to Caleb. He's gonna have to show up at that dead drop.


Kate Beckett: And you have to get ahold of Hayley. We need all the help we can get.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Hayley Shipton: [Castle hands her a pair of binoculars] And what do I need these for?
Richard Castle: Like I said, you're the lookout.


Richard Castle: When we do our surveillance of LokSat's accountant, we're gonna need you to find a high vantage point, be our eye in the sky.


Richard Castle: There's not a guitar in there, is there?
Hayley Shipton: Not the kind that plays music.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: [staking out LokSat's dead drop] Castle, you see anything?
Richard Castle: No. Just two sewer rats fighting over a piece of pizza.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: What F-stop are you using?
Kate Beckett: Excuse me?
Richard Castle: F-stop. It's a function on the camera. It tells it how much light to permit...
Kate Beckett: Yeah, no, I know what an F-stop is. This isn't a shoot for "National Geographic". It's on auto.
Richard Castle: [sarcastic snort of laughter] Auto. No, no, no. Never use auto. Here, let me get that for you.
Kate Beckett: [Castle reaches for the camera] Castle, stop messing with my stuff.
Richard Castle: [she slaps his hand away] Ow. I thought you liked it when I messed with your stuff.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: [her phone rings] Espo, I'm kind of busy here.
Javier Esposito: I know, I know, but listen. I traced the serial number on that briefcase from the crime scene. It belongs to Caleb Brown. So I had the lab run his DNA. It's a match. Caleb's dead. He's our victim.
Kate Beckett: [hearing static on the call] Espo? Are you there?
Richard Castle: [as she hangs up] What is it?
Kate Beckett: [looking through her camera lens] That's not Caleb. Castle, this is a trap.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: [after a dramatic rescue] That was amazing! Mason, you, sir, are quite literally a lifesaver. And talk about a getaway vehicle. A Korean barbecue taco truck? Are you serious? Is anyone hungry right now? Because I could totally whip up some kimchi tostadas.
Kate Beckett: [approaching Mason with her gun drawn] Who are you?
Mason Wood: Whoa. Easy now.
Richard Castle: Whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, no, no. Kate, Kate, Kate. This is Mason Wood. He's the head of the Greatest Detective Society. I told you about meeting him in L.A.
Kate Beckett: That doesn't mean that we can trust him.
Mason Wood: Fine, don't trust me, but would you mind pointing that thing away from me? It makes me just a bit nervous.
Richard Castle: Don't worry. She's out of bullets.
Kate Beckett: [lowering her gun, exasperated] Why would you tell him that?
Richard Castle: Because he saved our lives, and he's a friend!
Kate Beckett: Who just happened to be at the right place at the right time with the right Korean barbecue taco truck? I don't think so.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: How did that happen? We were careful.
Richard Castle: LokSat must've discovered that Caleb betrayed him and then got wind of us.
Kate Beckett: So LokSat killed Caleb, and then all he had to do was hack into Caleb's account and send a fake e-mail to Vikram agreeing to make that drop.
Richard Castle: LokSat is going to keep coming for us. Or worse, he's gonna come after our families.
Kate Beckett: Okay, well, my dad's away on business, so he's okay for now, but you got to get Hayley to pick up Alexis and Martha and take them to the P.I. office safe room.
Richard Castle: What about Vikram? He's in danger, too.
Kate Beckett: I'll track him down. Then we'll meet up and we'll make a plan.


Kate Beckett: No, no, no. Come on. Don't give me that face. Just say "We'll meet up at the P.I. office".
Richard Castle: We'll meet at the P.I. office.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: That's not what we agreed to. You were supposed to grab Vikram and then come straight here.
Kate Beckett: I... I know, but that was before the guys were brought in on this and before we got actionable evidence on LokSat. I can't leave now.
Richard Castle: Well, then I'm coming down there.
Kate Beckett: I... No. No. Absolutely not. You can't risk coming out in the open.
Richard Castle: And you can't risk staying in the open.
Kate Beckett: Castle, I am in one of the safest buildings in the city, a police station. A... and better yet, my police station with my cops. Nothing's gonna happen to me while I'm here.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: [making up his mind to go to the precinct, Hayley moves to follow him] What are you doing?
Hayley Shipton: You can't go out there alone. Someone has to watch your back.
Richard Castle: [nodding to Martha and Alexis] And someone has to watch theirs.


Richard Castle: I don't know those guys out front. I know you. Stay with them. Please.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: You're LokSat?
Mason Wood: Yes, although technically that's the code name for my... extralegal operations.
Richard Castle: So everything that happened in L.A., the G.D.S., that was all a lie?
Mason Wood: Oh, no, no, no, no. The Greatest Detective Society is very real, connected in no way to my work with the CIA. Think of it as a... fun hobby.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Mason Wood: All right, truth time. Who knows about me? Beckett, obviously, and Vikram. What about Hayley Shipton?
Richard Castle: [trying to fight the truth serum] Yes.
Mason Wood: Detectives Ryan and Esposito?
Richard Castle: Yes.
Mason Wood: What about your mother?
Richard Castle: [tears welling in his eyes] Yes.
Mason Wood: Ah. Your daughter?
Richard Castle: [a tear rolls down his cheek] Yes
Mason Wood: Yes. Aww. Anyone else?
Richard Castle: No.
Mason Wood: Good. That will be a weight off my shoulders once everyone has been neutralized.
Richard Castle: [Mason turns to leave] Don't do this, please.
Mason Wood: There is no shame in losing, Mr. Castle. Only in the hubris that made you think that this could end any other way.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Javier Esposito: [Castle improvises an escape route from a room with one door] What are you doing? That's the street side. You can't get out.
Richard Castle: We don't have to get out. We can get in. We can escape down there.
Javier Esposito: If we stop shooting, they're coming in.
Kevin Ryan: Don't worry about us. Go get Beckett.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Kate Beckett: Feel like I could sleep for a week.
Richard Castle: How about some breakfast first? Best way to start off a hibernation.
Kate Beckett: Uh, you know what? Uh, why don't we just order in? You don't have to cook.
Richard Castle: I love cooking for you.
Kate Beckett: And I love when you cook for me. I'm gonna go change.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: [voiceover] Every writer needs inspiration. And I found mine.
Kate Beckett: [voiceover] Always.
Richard Castle: [voiceover] Always.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Mr. Flynn: Ah. Good. Awake and alert, I see.
Richard Castle: Who are you?
Mr. Flynn: Does it matter? I understand that, as a writer, the naming of a thing would seem to be of paramount importance, but trust me, my name is the least consequential thing for you to know right now.
Richard Castle: It's an embarassing name, isn't it? Like "A Boy Named Sue"? Maybe your mother called you doofus.
Mr. Flynn: I was named by the state. But for operational purposes, I'm known as Mr. Flynn, and I've been entrusted with your interrogation. By the time we're done, you will have revealed the names of everyone who knows about LokSat.
Richard Castle: So you can kill them? Forget it. I'm not telling you anything. I'm not betraying anyone. I don't care how many thumbscrews you put to me.
Mr. Flynn: Oh, no. I don't believe in torture. Science is much more effective, and the company has made great leaps in the field of chemical truth agents. Within the hour, you will tell me everything I want to know. And then you will die. Now, tell me honestly, was knowing my name really that important?
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Mr. Flynn: Can I ask you a personal question?
Richard Castle: No.
Mr. Flynn: As I said, I was raised by the state. I never had a family growing up. I never knew love the way that you so clearly do.
Richard Castle: [sarcastic] Well, why don't you unstrap me? I'll come give you a big hug.
Mr. Flynn: I've read your files. You were an incorrigible playboy before you met Katherine Beckett. What changed?
Richard Castle: I fell in love with her.
Mr. Flynn: Why?
Richard Castle: Because I'd never met anyone like her.
Mr. Flynn: Well, you've never met anyone like me.
Richard Castle: Yeah, but you don't have the legs or the eyes, or the brains or the heart. Beckett makes me laugh. She challenges me. I became a better man.


Richard Castle: Why am I telling you this?


Richard Castle: Right.
Mr. Flynn: But these feelings make you vulnerable. Surely you must see that.
Richard Castle: Yeah, well, what's the alternative? To be like you, a man alone without empathy?
Mr. Flynn: She's the reason you are on this table. If you never met her, you'd most likely have a very long life ahead of you. Surely you would take a do-over if offered.
Richard Castle: No, I wouldn't.
Mr. Flynn: Hmm. Interesting.
Richard Castle: She's gonna find you. You and LokSat. And she's gonna bury you both. And I can't tell a lie, right?
Mr. Flynn: Yes, but the fact that you believe it does not make it the truth. Kate Beckett is going to be dead by the end of the night, and there is nothing you can do about it.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Mr. Flynn: Thank you for sharing your personal feelings. They've given me some real insight.
Richard Castle: You know, you... you don't have to do this. Clearly you're looking for something more.
Mr. Flynn: Oh, no. You misunderstood me. I'm not yearning for a happy family; simply insight into how best to dissect one. Now, time to get down to business.
Richard Castle: Look, um, maybe I could make a quick trip to the little boys' room before we get started with any more questions?
Mr. Flynn: Oh, I won't be asking the hard questions.
Richard Castle: Who will?
Mr. Flynn: My boss. The man you call LokSat.


Mason Wood: Surprise.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: What, no alcohol swab this time?
Mr. Flynn: No need. This stuff will kill you in about twelve seconds.
Richard Castle: Or, and just roll with me on this, we could skip it. There's no reason this has to end in tragedy.
Mr. Flynn: Everything ends in tragedy. Even an epic love story like yours.
08x22 - Crossfire Season 8 / Episode 22: - Crossfire

Richard Castle: Hey, Beckett!
Kate Beckett: [in the bedroom] Yeah?
Richard Castle: If Mason had an incinerator in the basement, why wouldn't he dispose of Caleb's body there?


Caleb Brown: [entering] I told Mason that you would figure it out.
Kate Beckett: Castle?
Caleb Brown: But the old man wouldn't listen to me.
Richard Castle: Caleb, don't...
Caleb Brown: Sorry, Rick, but how am I gonna enjoy my retirement with you and the missus hunting me?
Kate Beckett: [entering] Castle!

08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: [Referring to the hidden safe in his office] If I opened it, I was bound to be disappointed with whatever it was inside. If I never opened it, literally anything I imagined could be in there.
Hayley Shipton: So, you chose fantasy over reality.
Richard Castle: Well, duh.
Alexis Castle: But, we're going to open in now, right?
Richard Castle: Well, duh.
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: [while waiting in the building owned by the wealthy suspect that Castle thinks is the antichrist] C'mon. Half the city is blacked out, and this place is lit up like a Christmas tree?
Javier Esposito: The lights probably run on generators.
Richard Castle: Sure. Thermoelectric generators. Fueled by the flames of hell.
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: Beckett, listen to me. I looked into the cold, soulless eyes of Victor Crowne, and let me tell you what I saw. Evil.
Kate Beckett: Well, I looked into the surveillance tapes from Victor Crowne's building, and let me tell you what I saw. Victor Crowne, working. All night. He never left the building, Castle. He's not our killer.
Richard Castle: He's not gonna be bound by earthly laws, Beckett. That's demon 101!
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: I saw his eyes. It was a demon.
Kate Beckett: Or, someone with night vision goggles.
Richard Castle: Beckett. How much proof do you need before you finally accept the fact that YOUR HUSBAND HAS BEEN MARKED FOR DEATH?
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Kevin Ryan: Hey, Castle. How ya doin', buddy?
Richard Castle: Well, boys. I looked into the eyes of the devil. So, there's that!
Javier Esposito: Did they check him for concussion?
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: That sneaky little devil. It was Victor Crowne that did this.
Alexis Castle: How do you figure?
Richard Castle: Well, clearly he's trying to take possession of any weapon that could be used against him, And erase any and all evidence of his true identity as the spawn of satan!
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Javier Esposito: You okay?
Richard Castle: Yeah. You?
Javier Esposito: Yeah.
Richard Castle: Good.
Kevin Ryan: You okay?
Richard Castle: Yeah, I'm still good. You?
Kevin Ryan: Yeah, I'm okay.
Richard Castle: 'Kay.
Victor Crowne: Now that we know *you're* all good, can someone untie me?
08x21 - Hell to pay Season 8 / Episode 21: - Hell to pay

Richard Castle: Just to be clear, you really *aren't* the antichrist, right?
Victor Crowne: [Smiling wide] I love your sense of humor. [Serious now] You saved my life. That means I owe you. So, [he extends his hand] whatever you want, just ask. It's yours. Okay?
Richard Castle: [He shakes Crowne's hand] Okay. [Crowne winks then smiles before he walks away. Castle then looks at his hand as realization dawns] Did I just *literally* make a deal with the devil?
