Welcome to the debut of Castle-Caps. Here you’ll find highlights, quotes, insights and more. Feel free to add your own observations in the comments section below. Warning, there may be spoilers here, so flee the scene now if you haven’t watched the episode yet. For those who have, let’s dive into the Castle-Cap for the “Number One Fan” episode of Castle.
Good Morning, Sweety Pi: Not exactly sure how long Alexis’s taste for New-Guy-Pi will last, but Castle must be longing for the days when only his mother lurked the loft. Pi was channeling his inner-Fonzie when he referred to Castle and Beckett as Mr. and Mrs. C. (technically, she was the future Mrs. C.). Still not sure why he needed to borrow a razor when he’s sporting a mustache and beard. Nevertheless, it was an amusing bedroom scene at the start of the episode. Check it out:
Richard Castle Trivia: Loved the way hostage taker Emma verified she was talking to her favorite mystery man by quizzing him on his stories. If anyone knows Richard Castle trivia, it’s Richard Castle. Below are the three questions Emma posed. Did you know all the answers?
In the Nikki Heat series, what’s Rook and Nikki’s wine of choice? Answer: Sancerre
In Deadly Heat, what’s Douglas Sandmann’s nickname? Answer: Bedbug Doug
In Storm Rising, what are Pierre Dubois’ last words? Answer: Well, there is no answer. It was a trick question. Pierre was a monk who took a vow of silence. He never spoke. Slick.
Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger: When asked about a code word Castle can use if he needs an assist from the cops if he needs backup, Beckett suggests “cheeseburgers.” Why? Well, Castle loves a good cheeseburger. Wonder if he ever has one with a fine French wine. Sancerre, perhaps.
Dotting the “I”: When hostage-taker Emma let her guard down, a John McClane-wannabe lunged for her gun. BANG! Castle was hit! Fortunately, he was wearing his bulletproof “Writer” vest. The bullet nailed him right in the “I.” Did you see look on Beckett’s face when he screamed “cheeseburger” after regaining consciousness? Classic.
Mystery Lines: Here is a rundown of memorable quotes from the “Number One Fan” episode of Castle. Let us know in the comments below which were your favorites and, by all means, pop in any we forgot.
Beckett: I might as well just apply to become a mall cop.
Castle: Oh, you would look great on a segue.
Beckett: Well, if there’s one thing you excel at, Castle, it’s talking.
Beckett: Listen, I’m kinda looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you, so don’t do anything stupid in there, okay?
Castle: Don’t worry. I think I already hit my stupid quota for the day.
Captain Gates: So, she’s your number one fan and this is some sort of Hail Mary.
Castle: Scotch girl. Me, too. Boy.
Esposito: Bro, your wife’s hormonal because she’s having a baby. What’s your excuse?
Castle: She got the “I!”
Beckett: Yeah, well, getting hit with a projectile traveling at a thousand feet per second is gonna sting a bit.
Castle: Oh, I’m better than okay, Beckett. I know who the killer is.
Esposito: You are aware that you don’t actually work here anymore, right?
Castle: Looks like Mr. Stokes is gonna be trading in his big house for the… big house.
Ryan: Hey, what does it say about your writing when your number one fan tries to kill you?
They’re Baaack!: Yes, Castle and Beckett are back where they belong. They’re back in New York fulltime, back on the job and back in each other’s arms. Witness how all this came about in the clip below.
