Richard Castle: Thanks. Style section. Anything I need to know?
Alexis Castle: The '70s are back.
Richard Castle: Hmm. They're like the Highlander, they just won't die.
Richard Castle: Morning, Mother. You're dressed early.
Martha Rodgers: Ah! I have class.
Richard Castle: I believe that's a matter of some debate.
Martha Rodgers: At the New School, funny man. Look, it's-it's not that I don't appreciate everything you've done, but a girl has to stand on her own two feet.
Richard Castle: What's the class?
Alexis Castle: "Introduction To Life Coaching". It's-It's always been my desire to make a difference, whether on stage or off. And, I'... have had cards made.
Richard Castle: That's my I... you've... It says here, I'm your client.
Martha Rodgers: Well, of course you are. Haven't I been telling you what to do your whole life?
Alexis Castle: Oh, uh, Dad, Julie Schmidt's father's back in rehab, so a spot opened to chaperone the D.C. trip.
Richard Castle: Where is the... How did you know Julie's dad was back in rehab?
Alexis Castle: Must be a wired-teen-hyper-nano thing. So what do you say?
Richard Castle: Sorry, kiddo, but, uh, with you away, my chaperoning needs reside here. Or are you forgetting what happened the last time we left her alone?
Alexis Castle: So she... had a little party.
Richard Castle: There were lime shards embedded in the walls.
Martha Rodgers: It was Cinco de Mayo.
Alexis Castle: Exactly.
Richard Castle: I hear dead people.
Richard Castle: Who was murdered, and was it gruesome?
Martha Rodgers: And you know, nothing you can say will change how we feel. What men don't understand is, the right clothes, the right shoes, the right makeup, just... It hides the flaws we think we have. They make us look beautiful to ourselves. That's what makes us look beautiful to others.
Richard Castle: Used to be... all she needed to feel beautiful was a pink tutu and a plastic tiara.
Martha Rodgers: We spend our whole lives trying to feel that way again.
Richard Castle: What happened?
Martha Rodgers: Alexis decided to crash Lauren's party, against our better judgment.
Richard Castle: And I take it that the, uh, party crashing didn't go so well?
Alexis Castle: None of this would have happened if Lauren wasn't the most conniving bitch in the entire world.
Richard Castle: Whoa!
Martha Rodgers: [waving it off] It's warranted.
Alexis Castle: When the band was performing, Lauren brought Ashley up on stage with her, and she kissed him. In front of everyone!
Richard Castle: Bitch!
Richard Castle: My little girl is going to college.
Martha Rodgers: It seems like just yesterday you were checking under the bed every night, promising her that monsters aren't real.
Richard Castle: Well, I lied. Monsters are real. They're the boys in her freshman dorm.
Martha Rodgers: Oh, speaking of which, before Alexis leaves, don't you think you should have the, uh, "talk" with her?
Richard Castle: You mean the sex talk? Mother, I covered that ages ago. I learned so much.
Martha Rodgers: Jim... I don't know how you do this. You know, I thought I would get used to this... new part of Richard's life, that constant danger, and the never knowing, and I, but I really thought there would come a moment, just a moment, when the worry would stop.
Jim Beckett: Katie's been doing this for more than a decade now... and I've had this clench in my gut since the day they handed her the shield... She does say she always feels safest when your son's watching her back.
Martha Rodgers: He says the same thing about her. Well... at least, wherever they are, they have each other to lean on.
Martha Rodgers: Richard... you're dressed.
Richard Castle: Well, it is morning, isn't it?
Martha Rodgers: Well, it's just that ever since you were banned from working cases with Katherine, you and your pajamas have seen an awful lot of each other.
Richard Castle: I think you're exaggerating. I admit, I've taken the occasional day off to recharge, but hardly think it's fair...
Kate Beckett: Wow. Castle, you're dressed?
Richard Castle: Yes, I'm dressed! I did not think it would be such an event.
Kate Beckett: Martha, what do you think of Rick's P.I. venture?
Martha Rodgers: Well... it's always been a big fantasy of his to be a private investigator. And he says that things are picking up, he's getting more calls at the office every day.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, from fans wanting to meet him. Or people with crazy theories about where he disappeared to for two months. Or cases that aren't even worth looking into, like missing cats. Yeah, from fans wanting to meet him. Or people with crazy theories about where he disappeared to for two months. Or cases that aren't even worth looking into, like missing cats.
Martha Rodgers: Oh... Well, that does seem a bit beneath him.
Kate Beckett: You know, he did this because he was hoping that we would be able to work together again, and he thought he might have some interesting cases to solve. But right now, it doesn't seem like he's getting much of either.
Martha Rodgers: Well, and if I know my son, then, uh...
Martha Rodgers: ... he may be sticking with it because he's too proud to walk away.
Alexis Castle: What is all that?
Martha Rodgers: Oh, my lord.
Richard Castle: Somewhere in one of these bags is the perfect baby shower gift for Jen and Ryan. I just need your help picking which one. Ready? Ta-da!
Alexis Castle: No.
Martha Rodgers: Is that a bulletproof baby vest?
Alexis Castle: It's completely inappropriate.
Richard Castle: Really?
Martha Rodgers: Oh, my... so wrong.
Richard Castle: Okay. Well, then you're gonna hate the onesies that say, "I'm with Officer Stupid."
Martha Rodgers: Okay, ladies, I have decided that I should change my autograph. So... what do you think?
Alexis Castle: Gram, that looks exactly like your usual autograph.
Martha Rodgers: No. No, no, no, no. My usual autograph when I am merely an actress is like this. Sort of carefree and- and whimsical...
Martha Rodgers: ...Whereas the other conveys insight, wisdom. They're completely different. Can't you see that?
Hayley Shipton: Insight.
Alexis Castle: Wisdom.
Alexis Castle: Absolutely. Good job.
Hayley Shipton: Sure. Look at that.
Hayley Shipton: Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a business to run. Especially since you-know-who is completely useless.
Richard Castle: I heard that. And if I'm so useless, why would Beckett ask me to consult on a murder? Oh, Mother, new autograph.
Martha Rodgers: Yeah.
Richard Castle: Nice. Conveys wisdom, insight. I like it.
