Richard Castle: Hey, do you know what Lanie and Esposito were fighting about?
Kate Beckett: Everything. They both want to be together, but neither of them wants to admit to it.
Richard Castle: Ugh! Why do people do that to themselves?
Kate Beckett: Maybe they just don't see it.
Richard Castle: How could they not? It's so obvious.
Richard Castle: Wh- What happened to you?
Javier Esposito: Injured in the line of duty.
Richard Castle: Really? How?
Kevin Ryan: I... accidentally shot him in the gluteus maximus.
Richard Castle: In the ass?
Richard Castle: Or maybe I should give this to you. I'm sorry. This is so not funny.
Mia Laszlo: You're right. It's hilarious.
Richard Castle: It's hilarious. Come on, Mia, let's make way for, uh, Crackshot Ryan and Assposito.
Kate Beckett: You know, she's got an amazing brain. I mean, if she wanted to, she'd make an incredible lawyer.
Richard Castle: Yeah, like I don't lose enough arguments to her already. What about you? You ever regret it? Not getting your law degree?
Kate Beckett: Um, I'd rather take criminals down than send them up.
Richard Castle: Really?
Kate Beckett: Mm-hmm.
Richard Castle: Because with your mind, I bet you could've made Chief Justice. You have all the qualifications. You're smart, you are intimidating, and you look very, very good in a robe.
Kate Beckett: Wow. Really?
Richard Castle: Mmm.
Kate Beckett: Care to take a ten minute recess in my chambers?
Richard Castle: If it please the court, I would.
Kate Beckett: Oh. I think we're gonna need a continuance.
Richard Castle: Uh, objection.
Kate Beckett: Overruled.
Kate Beckett: Beckett.
