: [Walking into the apartment with Meredith after going out to dinner
] My God, Meredith. Castle did that? I can't believe that you married him. Richard Castle
: What can't you believe? What- no. What? Uh, no. C'mon. Beckett, there's two sides to that story. That... What did you... What story- What did you tell her? Meredith
: The truth, Richard. Kate Beckett
: Castle, you're not the man that I thought I knew. Richard Castle
: I'm the man you thought you knew. I'm the man you know. I thought you- I'm that- You think- I know you- I'm him.
[When the ladies start laughing, he turns to his mother
] Richard Castle
: This is so not cool.
: Are you sure it's okay that I'm going to Paree without you? Alexis Castle
: Just because I'm sick, you shouldn't miss it. I want you to go. Martha Rodgers
: We all do. Richard Castle
: What's going on? Alexis Castle
: I just feel so guilty that mom's missing her vacation because I'm sick, so I told her to enjoy Paris for the both of us. Richard Castle
: Are you sure, Alexis? I mean, your mother...
[behind Alexis and Meredith, Martha gestures for him to play along
] Richard Castle
: ...should... enjoy her vacation. Have a safe trip, Meredith.
: Why didn't it work out between you and Rick? I'm sorry, is that too personal? Meredith
: Oh, no. No, no, no. It's fine. You know, being married to Richard was... great. Full of romance and excitement, like a deliciously sweet soufflé. And then one day, I realized he knew everything about me. My deepest secrets, my worst pain; enough to fill a million novels. But I didn't know enough about him to even write a pamphlet. Kate Beckett
: I don't understand. Meredith
: For instance, whenever I asked him about how he felt about never knowing his father, he would smirk; you know the way he smirks, and then he would throw out a quip and change the subject. Our marriage went one way, and that wasn't enough for me. I mean, soufflés are wonderful, but sooner or later, they always fall.
[Meredith's comment strikes a chord with Beckett
: Oh, but that was a long, long time ago. What, fifteen years in fact. He's a totally different man now.
: What are you doing here? Meredith
] Alexis, oh, my poor baby. Alexis Castle
: Aren't you supposed to be in Paris? Meredith
: Not without my daughter. And since you can't go to Paree, I'm bringing Paree to you. French pastries and "Funny Face". We can enjoy them as I nurse you back to health. Richard Castle
: Meredith, how... why... why so much luggage?
[Meredith gives him a coy smile and realization dawns on him
] Richard Castle
: [teasing Castle with Meredith
] Oh, you're right. He does lean to the left. Meredith
: Told you. Only when he's stressed. Kate Beckett
: I've never even noticed that before.
: [after Castle and his ex-wife have sex
] We have had fun, haven't we? Richard Castle
: Oh, yeah. Meredith
: Makes you wonder why we ever got divorced. Richard Castle
: I know, right? I mean, except for you having an affair with your director and moving to Malibu and serving me with divorce papers, I think we really had a chance. Meredith
: I'm moving back. Richard Castle
: [Castle drops the fun and looks stunned
] Back to New York? Meredith
: [She's bouncing with happiness
] I miss it. I miss it, I miss Alexis, I miss you. Richard Castle
: [Unsuccessfully trying to hide an unhappy expression
] Um. What about your career? Meredith
: Oh, L.A.'s changed. The juicy roles just aren't there for an actress of my caliber. I need a change. Like Broadway, maybe. The legitimate stage! Richard Castle
: Yeah, well, oh-oh-oh, wow, time out, hey. Wait a minute. For what? Have you really thought this through? Meredith
: [Grinning lasciviously
] What's to think about? You, me, Alexis, all living in the same city? It's gonna be just like old times.
[She moves in to kiss him and, over her shoulder, the camera captures his look of horror
