Richard Castle: Man, these people need to get a life. Most of these guys, it seems their only companionship is the space alien that talks to them through their microwave.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, well, there's a lot of lonely and confused people out there, but so far none of the letters match the handwriting in our the suspect's notebook.
Richard Castle: Considering what he's capable of, you would think Bracken would have more... formidable enemies.
Kate Beckett: Oh, obviously you never saw the letter that I sent him.
Richard Castle: No, I did actually. I liked the way you uh, dotted the 'I' on "kill" with a little heart. It was a nice touch.
Kate Beckett: Well, I was trying to give it a personal feel.
Kate Beckett: Martha, what do you think of Rick's P.I. venture?
Martha Rodgers: Well... it's always been a big fantasy of his to be a private investigator. And he says that things are picking up, he's getting more calls at the office every day.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, from fans wanting to meet him. Or people with crazy theories about where he disappeared to for two months. Or cases that aren't even worth looking into, like missing cats.

Martha Rodgers: Oh... Well, that does seem a bit beneath him.
Kate Beckett: You know, he did this because he was hoping that we would be able to work together again, and he thought he might have some interesting cases to solve. But right now, it doesn't seem like he's getting much of either.
Martha Rodgers: Well, and if I know my son, then, uh...
Martha Rodgers: ... he may be sticking with it because he's too proud to walk away.
Lanie Parish: Sorry, Castle, but this time, he really is dead.
Richard Castle: What a waste.
Lanie Parish: To be given a second chance and have it taken away like this.
Richard Castle: He was just gonna go back to work like nothing happened.
Lanie Parish: What?
Richard Castle: If I hadn't been so focused on his rebirth, I might have noticed that wire. I... I could have saved him.
Lanie Parish: Oh, you can't beat yourself up, Castle. I was starting to think he was some kind of medical miracle. Turns out he was just lucky. And in the end, his luck ran out.
Richard Castle: Forget lucky.
Alan Masters: Somebody cooking barbecue?
Richard Castle: He's immortal!
