Richard Castle: What happened?
Martha Rodgers: Alexis decided to crash Lauren's party, against our better judgment.
Richard Castle: And I take it that the, uh, party crashing didn't go so well?
Alexis Castle: None of this would have happened if Lauren wasn't the most conniving bitch in the entire world.
Richard Castle: Whoa!
Martha Rodgers: [waving it off] It's warranted.
Alexis Castle: When the band was performing, Lauren brought Ashley up on stage with her, and she kissed him. In front of everyone!
Richard Castle: Bitch!
Richard Castle: Paul is the writer. Lone Vengeance is the subject. That's their relationship. It's you and me, all over again. But I'm Paul, and you're Lone Vengeance.
Kate Beckett: Really, Castle? Is that how you see me, like a sword-wielding killer?
Richard Castle: Depends. Will you be scantily clad?
Kate Beckett: In your dreams.
