Richard Castle: When Alexis was four, we went Christmas shopping at some mall in White Plains. I was trying on some... charcoal fedora. I turn around, she is gone. Vanished. I looked... everywhere. So did mall security, so did the police. We searched for an hour... You don't have to be a... novelist to think of all the worst-case scenarios.
Kate Beckett: Where'd you find her?
Richard Castle: Behind a... rack of winter coats. She got bored. She crawled underneath there and went to sleep.
Richard Castle: To this day, I still dream about that.
Kate Beckett: Who put you up to this, Bobby? Who gave you that backpack?
Bobby Lopez: I don't... I don't know. I don't remember.
Kate Beckett: You don't remember? How do you not remember?
Bobby Lopez: I was in shock. A bomb went off, everyone was running and screaming...
Kate Beckett: Oh, oh. Okay, okay. So you remember what happened after the bomb went off but not before?
Bobby Lopez: It must have been one of those traumatic amnesia things.
Kate Beckett: Bobby!... Don't lie to me.
Bobby Lopez: I'm telling you, it was all a big blank. It was the trauma.
Kate Beckett: It was not the trauma. You don't get to use that excuse.
Bobby Lopez: I swear! I don't remember.
Kate Beckett: The *hell* you don't remember! Do you want to know trauma? I was shot in the chest. And I remember every *second* of it... And so do you.
Richard Castle: [watching in the observation room] All this time... You remembered?
Kate Beckett: Oh, my... God! Oh, my God! You're proposing!
Richard Castle: Okay. You're surprised.
Kate Beckett: Of course I'm surprised! I thought you were breaking up with me!
Richard Castle: By offering you a ring?
Kate Beckett: Well, you just- You seemed so serious!
Richard Castle: Yeah, of course I'm serious. This is the most serious thing I've ever done.
