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

Mr. Walters: I tried to stop. I did, but she just came out of nowhere.
Richard Castle: Mr. Walters, the trooper said you saw something in the woods.
Mr. Walters: Yeah. It almost didn't seem real. Like it was some kind of ghost. Freaky as all hell.
Kate Beckett: Can you describe it?
Mr. Walters: It wore a dark, ragged coat, with a mask like a doll's face.
Richard Castle: Like porcelain?
Mr. Walters: Yeah. It was white, with black where the eyes should have been.
Richard Castle: Were there markings on it?
Mr. Walters: Yeah.
Richard Castle: Like what?
Mr. Walters: Like streaked teardrops coming from the eyes. Uh, and the... the face, it was, uh...
Richard Castle: Bisected with two black lines, like a cross.
Mr. Walters: Yeah. How'd you know that?
Kate Beckett: Castle, what's going on?
Richard Castle: [more to himself] It was real.
Kate Beckett: What was real?
Richard Castle: Beckett, I've seen that mask before.
07x23 - Hollander’s Woods Season 7 / Episode 23: - Hollander’s Woods

Richard Castle: [telling Beckett about Hollander's Woods] That day in the woods, Kate... that's why I do what I do. I'm driven to figure out the story because I could never figure out that one.
Kate Beckett: Why didn't you ever tell me this before?
Richard Castle: I think I didn't want it to be real. But it is real. He's real. He killed before, and he just tried to kill again.
07x23 - Hollander’s Woods Season 7 / Episode 23: - Hollander’s Woods

Richard Castle: [accepting his Poe's Pen award] Most people think that writing is a solitary profession, that we spend our days in our imaginary worlds... fighting, loving, dying. But we don't do it alone... because anything that's good in our writing comes from truth. And the truth is I'm here because of the people in my life. Mother. You will always be a star in my eyes. And Alexis, you amaze me every day. You two are my redheaded pillars of unconditional love. To my friends at the 12th precinct... you let me in. Especially you two, Javier, Kevin. You made me your brother-in-arms, and I thank you for that. And Kate. Seven years ago, I thought I would never write again. And then you walked through the door, and my whole world changed. You were right - you said I had no idea. But now I do. This is because of you. Because of us. Always.

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.

07x18 - At Close Range Season 7 / Episode 18: - At Close Range

Richard Castle: [after failing to get Ryan to reveal who he is guarding on a security gig that night] That means this goes beyond the pro athlete or reality star. This is someone important. Someone revered. Perhaps... the Pope? The Dalai Lama? Uncle and Merkle?

Richard Castle: [His voice suddenly high in breathless anticipation] Huh, Ryan! Is it One Direction? You would tell me, right? [to Esposito as Ryan walks away] Are they in town?

07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Kate Beckett: He steals her car and she kills him? Why doesn't she just put in an insurance claim and call it a day?
Richard Castle: Ah. Because it wasn't about the car. See, when Henry stole the vehicle, he took something of value from the inside. That's what the assassin was trying to retrieve from his body.
Kate Beckett: And said stolen item was...?
Richard Castle: Cold fusion technology. Genetically engineered super virus. Some secret... [His voice suddenly lowers in awe] unpublished Harry Potter manuscript.
Kate Beckett: Actually, one thing that you said does make sense.
Richard Castle: *One*?
07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Richard Castle: [He's just introduced him self to Chief Inspector Zhang] This is gonna be fun! This little threesome, here. [Realizing how that sounded, he tries to back peddle] Investigatively speaking. I don't wanna... Didn't mean to... I'm not trying to imply...
Kate Beckett: Quit while you're behind.
Richard Castle: Yeah.
07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Kate Beckett: If Henry left work at 2pm, showed up dead at midnight, he's unaccounted for for ten hours, so where was he during that time?
Javier Esposito: Well, he didn't own a car, so I'll check the activity on his metro and credit cards, see if he went anywhere.
Kevin Ryan: I'll circle back with his neighbors, see if they saw anything.
Kate Beckett: Okay. Call me if you guys find anything.
Richard Castle: [as Esposito and Ryan walk away] Whew! For a second there, I thought I was gonna get stuck doing thankless grunt work tonight.
Javier Esposito: [He and Ryan stop and turn around] Castle. We're standing right here.
07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Kevin Ryan: Lemme tell you a little something about life. You see what you did there, Castle. Rookie mistake.
Richard Castle: What'd I do?
Kevin Ryan: You tried to stop her. I mean, Jenny. She's got her girls nights. I'm totally fine with that. You see, in a marriage, you have to give your partner some space.
Richard Castle: [Totally serious and completely unaware of the irony] Okay. Ryan. Uh, this is my third marriage. I think I know what I'm doing.
07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Richard Castle: [Trying to reason with Beckett, who is jealous of Zhang] Look, you're idealizing Zhang. You're comparing yourself to a version of her that doesn't even exist. She is a human, like the rest of us. Flaws and all. Not some infallible super cop who swoops in every time to save the day.
Kevin Ryan: Hey. Zhang just got a lead that could crack this case.
07x17 - Hong Kong Hustle Season 7 / Episode 17: - Hong Kong Hustle

Richard Castle: You cannot leave behind what is always at your side.
Kate Beckett: Did you just make that up?
Richard Castle: Yeah. Why?
Kate Beckett: You are *so* much better than Patterson.

07x16 - The Wrong Stuff Season 7 / Episode 16: - The Wrong Stuff

Ed Redley: A couple of stories below us. And that's easier said than done.
Kevin Ryan: In order to mimic conditions on Mars as well as discourage any cheating, the simulation's filled with noxious gas.
Ed Redley: It won't kill you. But, it will induce severe nausea and a rash. It will take several days to vent the sim to make the air breathable. So, if you wanna to go in, you're gonna need to wear space suits.
Richard Castle: [Unable to contain his excitement] *Best* case ever! [Pastes a serious look on his face] This way?
07x16 - The Wrong Stuff Season 7 / Episode 16: - The Wrong Stuff

Kate Beckett: Castle, boost me up.
Richard Castle: Why am I always on the bottom? [She gives him a hard look] Yes, dear.
