Episode Quotes

Kate Beckett: [McCord shows up at the loft] Hey, I thought our flight was at eight in the morning.
Special Agent Rachel McCord: It is. They know it was you that tipped off the press. A part of me really admires you for the choice that you made, maybe because I'd like to think there was a time that I would have done it. But the people we answer to don't feel that way.
Kate Beckett: Rachel, I...
Special Agent Rachel McCord: Kate, you're one of the best agents I've ever worked with. But I'm here to tell you you're fired.
Martha Rodgers: [Castle is, once again, irked at Pi] Darling, couldn't you just pretend to appreciate Pi's efforts?
Richard Castle: What efforts? Half the time, I don't know if I'm smelling our new compost bin or my daughter's rotting ambition.
Kevin Ryan: I can't believe Charlie was spying on Anton Renkov and his organization. Any of them look familiar?
Javier Esposito: Yeah. I saw about three of those Russians on the movie set.
Kevin Ryan: Mm-hmm.
Grant 'Sully' Sullivan: And according to Interpol, all of them got criminal records back in the motherland. Assault, murder, all kinds of bad stuff.
Kevin Ryan: I bet one of them found out that Charlie was a spy and they killed him.
Kate Beckett: [approaching] Especially since we know that Carlie was followed to the warehouse.
Kevin Ryan: Based on what?
Kate Beckett: We tracked Charlie's movements by triangulating the cell towers that his phone pinged off. And then we used that time stamp to pull satellite footage of the warehouse. How'd you guys get there?
Javier Esposito: [brightly] Chicken poop.
Kate Beckett: Oh. Well, whatever works.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Beckett and McCord find Esposito, Ryan, and Castle in the warehouse, Beckett doesn't recognize the trio until they turn around. Surely she would be able to recognize her fiancé, if not her longtime partners, from behind.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Most of the six people in the warehouse put their prints on the cases or the contents thereof, compromising evidence.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Castle, Ryan, and Esposito are in the break room watching Beckett and McCord, Ryan comments about Beckett "Her and her partner just hijacked our case". The more grammatically correct structure is "she and her partner", because if the phrase "and her partner" is taken out of the sentence, the resulting "Her just hijacked our case" doesn't make sense.

Trivia

  • The TV show and reunion movie that this episode is about are based off of the 1990s TV hit Saved By The Bell. When the CIA agent tosses his badge to Esposito, he calls Esposito Mario Lopez. Mario Lopez was one of the stars of Saved By The Bell.
  • SPOILER: Final appearance of Rachel McCord, Beckett's partner at the A.G.'s office. Two years later, in ""Castle" (2009) {XX (#8.2)}", Beckett learns that an inquiry into criminality connected to Senator Bracken she made shortly after starting her job in D.C. has led to McCord's murder.
  • A special feature included on the season six DVD set is an audio commentary for this episode by Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas in character as Ryan and Esposito.
