Kevin Ryan: When I started in Narcotics, I was so green. I-I didn't know how things got done. One day, there's this major bust; street gang cooking meth. They're stacking up guys in the bullpen, taking their statements one by one. The place is a zoo. I'm answering phones in the squad. Girl on the line, name of Alisha, asking for my lieutenant. So I call out across the bullpen, "Hey, lieu, Alisha's on the phone for you."
Kevin Ryan: It was her tip that got these guys nailed, and all of them just heard me call out her name. Searched all day and all night, looking for her before the gang could get word back to the street that she was a narc.
Kate Beckett: Well, did you find her?
Kevin Ryan: I did. Got her into witness protection, but... that was the stupidest thing I'd ever done as a cop. Until the day Jerry Tyson got the drop on me and stole my weapon.
Kevin Ryan: She was like the dog whisperer for CEO's.
Javier Esposito: You really buy that.
Kevin Ryan: Oh, yeah, skimmed through her book. I think there might be something to her theory. For instance, she said that in every relationship, there needs to be a masculine energy and a feminine energy. Even in ours.
Javier Esposito: Oh. Well, we know which one you are.
Kevin Ryan: I don't know about you, but I'm very comfortable in my masculinity.
Javier Esposito: You do realize you're wearing a sweater vest, right?
Richard Castle: Twin girls are born and put up for adoption. Odette goes to a wealthy, loving family, Barbra, not so lucky. She gets bounced around from one foster home to the next, always knowing, deep inside, that she was meant for something better. Then, one day, the two of them meet on a train bound for Miami. The connection is instantaneous. In two days they learn everything there is to know about each other. And Barbra can't help but think, "If only I had landed in the lap of luxury like Odette, I could have been anything I wanted to be."
Kate Beckett: Are you suggesting that Barbra purposefully caused the derailment to take over Odette's life? With what? Her crazy Wiccan powers?
Richard Castle: [excited] Oh... Wow! That would be an incredible twist! But no. No. The accident happens, Odette is killed, Barbra survives. And in the midst of all the chaos and rubble, she sees her chance. She switches identification with Odette, and she changes her destiny. In one move, Barbra builds herself a better future. A perfect life.
Kate Beckett: Until she was murdered a year later.
Richard Castle: Yeah, well, separated twin stories never end happily.
Richard Castle: Except 'The Parent Trap'.
