Guest Stars


Beckett: So, two lovers reunite after three years. Where would you go?
Castle: Motel.
Beckett: Really? That’s what you call special?
Castle: Well, I’m assuming they’re on a budget.
Esposito: That was a nice thing you did in there.
Castle: Nah, I just thought that after everything Greg did for her they deserved a chance. Besides, if it were you and I in Amy’s shoes, we’d still be rotting in prison.
Esposito: Speak for yourself, bro. I’d escape.
Castle: What, you’d just leave me in there?
Esposito: It’s law of the jungle. I gotta look out for numero uno.
Castle: Wow. Nothing like a hypothetical prison term to let you know who your friends really are.
Beckett: Don’t worry, Castle. I’d get you out.

Featured Music

  • "You Know It's True" - Jules Larson


  • Montgomery claims he liked Martha Stewart, but only before she went to prison for insider trading. However, Stewart was never convicted of insider trading, and a judge threw out the charge of securities fraud, calling it "unprovable". Instead, she was convicted of charges relating to the investigation itself: obstruction of justice, making false statements and conspiracy.
  • Castle continuously calls McClintock "McDreamy" or "McSteamy" which is a clear reference to the show Grey's Anatomy.
