Richard Castle: I am so sorry for everything I put you through.
Kate Beckett: It's not your fault, you know. You went through stuff, too, so...
Richard Castle: Well, it's not the same. I can't remember. Though I do know I missed you terribly, because there's no way I wouldn't. We can't just, um... pick up where we left off, can we? As if nothing happened?
Kate Beckett: No.
Richard Castle: We'll get there. We'll find our way home.
Richard Castle: Everything all right?
Kate Beckett: We have to talk.
Richard Castle: Wow. That's something people say before they deliver bad news.
Kate Beckett: Um... You know, when you called last night about the venue... I was with Matilda. She wanted me to model a dress... And... it was a wedding dress... And when I saw myself in it, I just, I started to think about my mom. She would have loved to have been part of all of this. To help pick out the flowers, and try on the dresses, and... When I looked at myself in the mirror, I just, I-I halfway expected to see her right behind me. And she wasn't there. And just for a moment, I thought to myself, "I don't know if I can do all this without her." And that's why I said no when you asked about the venue... I'm so sorry. It was *so* stupid...
Richard Castle: No... No, not stupid. Human.
Kate Beckett: Do you know what else I wish she could experience?... You.
Richard Castle: Really?
Kate Beckett: Yeah. She would've *loved* you.
Richard Castle: You know, Kate... if you need more time...
Kate Beckett: No. No, I don't- I don't need any more time. I don't even want us to wait until the fall. I think we can find a new venue in the spring.
Richard Castle: You think we can pull it off?
Kate Beckett: Yeah... I mean, I already have the dress.
Kate Beckett: Hey, Lanie, we got a jumper?
Lanie Parish: Judging by the impact, I'd say he came from one of those windows above the 7th floor. Ryan and Esposito are already into find the room with the hotel staff.
Richard Castle: So... He's naked.
Lanie Parish: Perceptive.
Richard Castle: Well, it is pretty cold out. If this was a suicide, wouldn't you rather be warm and toasty on your way down to your certain, yet citrusy death?
Lanie Parish: If it were suicide, would you really have these?
Lanie Parish: Fingernail marks. Only an hour old?
Kate Beckett: Well, looks like he did the deed before taking the dive.
Richard Castle: Last item on your bucket list?
