Kate Beckett: I'm telling you, something happened, something changed. It's been weird between us lately.
Lanie Parish: Lately? Kate, it's been weird for four years.
Kate Beckett: No. This is different. He's different. It's like he's pulling away.
Lanie Parish: Well, can you blame him? He's probably tired of waiting.
Kate Beckett: Waiting for what?
Lanie Parish: What do you think? The guy is crazy about you, snd despite your little act, you're crazy about him.
Lanie Parish: Oh, what? Was that supposed to be some big secret?
Kate Beckett: [with mixed indignation and defensiveness] Yes!
Kate Beckett: [deflating, being honest with herself] No. Do you think he knows?
Lanie Parish: You remember how he used to be? Girl on either arm? You really don't see that guy too much anymore. Why do you think that is? He's waiting for you.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, but, Lanie...
Lanie Parish: I know. You're dealing with stuff. But you cannot ask him to wait forever... Unless, of course, you're okay with him pulling away.
Kate Beckett: What if it doesn't work? What if it ends up like you and Javi?
Lanie Parish: Well, at least we gave it a shot. And so it didn't work out. So what? Now we can move on. Give or take the occasional booty call.
Kate Beckett: I just, I don't wanna lose what we have, you know?
Lanie Parish: Girl, please. What exactly do you have? Really?
Kate Beckett: A friendship?
Lanie Parish: No. What you and I have, is a friendship. What you and Castle have is a holding pattern. How long can you circle before the fuel runs out?
Kate Beckett: What just happened?
Richard Castle: Well, I've integrated Lucy into all the loft's infrastructure. Climate, lights, music. You name it, she controls it. Just got to work out a few... kinks.
Kate Beckett: Well, I still like a few things the old-fashioned way. So, do you want me to make you a cup of coffee?
Lucy: Uh, no need, Kate. I've programmed Rick's coffee exactly to his liking. Cuban blend, steamed milk, two sugars, pinch of nutmeg.
Richard Castle: Amazing, huh?
Kate Beckett: Hmm.
Lucy: No, Rick, you're amazing.
Richard Castle: No, you are.
Lucy: No, you are.
Richard Castle: No, Lucy. You are.
Lucy: Rick, you're amazing and you know it.
Kate Beckett: Beckett.
Richard Castle: Stop it! I'm not doing this with you again.
