Alexis Castle: What's all the excitement about?
Richard Castle: Only 'The New York Ledger's annual 10 Most Eligible Bachelors list, and guess who's on it?
Alexis Castle: Who?
Richard Castle: I don't know, but he must be the president of the Really-Good-Looking club.
Martha Rodgers: [picking up the paper] Huh! Ranked number nine. Weren't you number seven last year?
Richard Castle: Yes, and thank you for pointing out my shortcomings once again, Mother.
Javier Esposito: So, neighbors heard a hellacious fight and then our victim here sailed out of that fourth-floor window.
Kate Beckett: Was that his apartment?
Javier Esposito: We're checking, but it doesn't look like it. Tenants don't recognize him and he doesn't have any ID.
Lanie Parish: No ID, but lots of causes of death.
Richard Castle: You mean, other than gravity?
Lanie Parish: Oh yeah. See that bullet wound?
Kate Beckett: So he was shot before he fell?
Lanie Parish: And stabbed.
Kate Beckett: Shot and stabbed?
Lanie Parish: And choked and has a pencil jammed in the side of his neck.
Richard Castle: Wha. Gives new meaning to the term 'overkill.'
Alexis Castle: Hey.
Richard Castle: Hey.
Richard Castle: I was... I was just... trying on my... Halloween costume.
Alexis Castle: What exactly are you supposed to be?
Richard Castle: Space cowboy.
Alexis Castle: Okay. A, there are no cows in space. B, didn't you wear that, like, five years ago?
Richard Castle: So?
Alexis Castle: So, don't you think you should move on?
Richard Castle: I like it.
