Quotes

Kate Beckett: So, it's meet the parents time, huh, Castle? This is a pretty critical moment for you.
Richard Castle: Me? Why me?
Kate Beckett: Well, I mean Ashley is Alexis' first love, right?
Richard Castle: Mm-hmm.
Kate Beckett: What do you think'll happen if you don't get on with his parents?
Richard Castle: [hopefully] She'll lose interest in him?
Kate Beckett: Oh, no. The exact opposite. I mean, it'll make their romance feel forbidden, and they'll be off doing... god knows what. Trust me. I know.
Richard Castle: I never thought of it that way.
Kate Beckett: My advice is keep the boyfriend close, but the parents closer.
