[having watched a run-through of a "Saturday Night Tonight" skit based on her and Castle]
Kate Beckett : Okay, well, I don't know whether we should be flattered or offended.
Liz Bell : [to Castle] Hi. I'm Liz Bell. I'm the head writer for SNT, and I absolutely adore you.
Liz Bell : And you. Especially you.
Kate Beckett : What? Me? Really? I...
Liz Bell : Oh, of course. I mean, I followed your career. I wanted to be a cop, but ended up a writer. I know, it's pathetic.
Richard Castle : Excuse me?
[an actress is imitating Beckett, tossing her hair, crossing her arms and moving behind her]
Kate Beckett : Castle, please tell me I don't move like that. I mean... do I?
Richard Castle : Is this a trick question? What answer is not gonna have me sleeping on the couch tonight?
[as Beckett walks away, Castle gives the actress the A-OK sign]
Richard Castle : We can stay at a hotel. That way, you don't have to listen to her say that line over and over again.
Kate Beckett : No, it's okay. I mean, we're gonna manage, it's just your mom's kind of...
Richard Castle : Annoying? Yeah, I know. Trust me, we're getting off easy. One time, her opening line was "Come on, baby, I'll make it worth your while."
Kate Beckett : [chuckles] Ooh, I see what you mean.
Richard Castle : Yeah. Most awkward parent-teacher conference ever.
Kevin Ryan : I figured out what Sid was doing in his office with those spreadsheets. He was going over his corporate bank accounts.
Kate Beckett : Sid went from paying a kidnapper at gunpoint to checking his corporate financials? That's... weird.
Kevin Ryan : That's not the only thing that's weird. Check out those expenses he highlighted.
[Ryan hands over two sheets of paper, one of which Beckett gives to Castle]
Richard Castle : Oh, these are weird. Because...?
Kevin Ryan : Because I called the bank in the Cayman Islands. All of those expenses are bogus.
Kate Beckett : So, someone with access at Sid's company was embezzling money.
Kevin Ryan : Almost $4 million, the exact amount of the ransom.
Richard Castle : Wait, that's it! The embezzler was trying to replace the money he'd stolen from Sid.
Richard Castle : Nice. In fairness, though, I walked you right through that.
Richard Castle : Carly, quick question. That one song, uh, Call Me Maybe, what did you mean by the lyric...
Stage Manager : Carly? Two minutes.
Carly Rae Jepsen : Oh. I'm so sorry. I have to go perform this song.
Richard Castle : Oh, that- that's cool. We gotta go solve a murder, so...
[Beckett pulls him away]
Richard Castle : Nice to meet you.
Kate Beckett : Okay, let's go.
Richard Castle : Bye.
