Kate Beckett: Hey, Lanie, we got a jumper?
Lanie Parish: Judging by the impact, I'd say he came from one of those windows above the 7th floor. Ryan and Esposito are already into find the room with the hotel staff.
Richard Castle: So... He's naked.
Lanie Parish: Perceptive.
Richard Castle: Well, it is pretty cold out. If this was a suicide, wouldn't you rather be warm and toasty on your way down to your certain, yet citrusy death?
Lanie Parish: If it were suicide, would you really have these?
Lanie Parish: Fingernail marks. Only an hour old?
Kate Beckett: Well, looks like he did the deed before taking the dive.
Richard Castle: Last item on your bucket list?
Kevin Ryan: We're putting up the tree the other day, Jenny says to me, "It just doesn't feel like Christmas without kids." She wants to try. But I come to work, I watch the news, every day... it seems like the world's falling apart. How am I supposed to bring a kid into that?
Javier Esposito: The world's always falling apart, bro. Since the beginning of time. But having kids, making a family, that's what keeps it together.
Kate Beckett: So, you here to apologize for hiding me in your closet?
Richard Castle: Look, let me explain. When I heard her voice, I reacted by instinct.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, like the instinct of a sophomore in high school.
Richard Castle: Right.
Richard Castle: No. Look. I...
Kate Beckett: Wait a minute. You're embarrassed about being seen with me.
Richard Castle: Now that is not true. Look, I, This, I, Okay. This is all just still very new to me, and call me selfish, but I wanna keep what we have together... to ourselves a bit longer.
Kate Beckett: Still, it wasn't your finest hour.
Richard Castle: No.
Richard Castle: But maybe I could... make it up to you... Somehow.
Kate Beckett: I suppose since we know your mom's not gonna be barging in, we could go for round two.
Richard Castle: Well, technically it would be round four, but...
Richard Castle: She's stalking us. She knows.
