Richard Castle: The only reason I went on the date in the first place was because you made a big deal about being single in public.
Kate Beckett: Castle, I have twelve missed phone calls from Chip the sportscaster because he thinks that I'm single, but that doesn't mean I'm gonna let him mount me in a Speedo just to prove it.
Richard Castle: You didn't tell me he called.
Kate Beckett: Really? You're gonna play the jealousy card now?
Senator William Bracken: No. No no no no, forget it! I've got nothing to say to you!
Richard Castle: Oh, tough! I know Beckett was here and I know why! So you're gonna call off your dogs right now.
Senator William Bracken: Or what? Are you gonna write something mean about me?
Richard Castle: Or I'm gonna start a scholarship in your name and offer it to the children of the first inmate who shanks you in the prison laundry.
Senator William Bracken: You'll be wasting your money.
Richard Castle: Oh, forgive me if I don't take your word for it.
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.
