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: Well, the first anniversary's paper, but otherwise that's not a bad idea.
Kevin Ryan: When I started in Narcotics, I was so green. I-I didn't know how things got done. One day, there's this major bust; street gang cooking meth. They're stacking up guys in the bullpen, taking their statements one by one. The place is a zoo. I'm answering phones in the squad. Girl on the line, name of Alisha, asking for my lieutenant. So I call out across the bullpen, "Hey, lieu, Alisha's on the phone for you."
Kevin Ryan: It was her tip that got these guys nailed, and all of them just heard me call out her name. Searched all day and all night, looking for her before the gang could get word back to the street that she was a narc.
Kate Beckett: Well, did you find her?
Kevin Ryan: I did. Got her into witness protection, but... that was the stupidest thing I'd ever done as a cop. Until the day Jerry Tyson got the drop on me and stole my weapon.
Richard Castle: So, he ate the wrong entrée and avoided being poisoned, and then he stumbled... at just the right moment to avoid being shot by an assassin through a window... Nobody's that lucky... What's going on here, Kate?
Kate Beckett: He kissed me, okay, Castle?
Richard Castle: He what?
Kevin Ryan: I think I have all I need here.
