- Castle: Seriously, you've never heard of Matilda King?
- Esposito: I'm betting that most real men haven't.
- Castle: Ooh! I just came up with a new title. "Murder Is the New Black."
- Beckett: Does that even make sense?
- Ryan: No, it doesn't.
- Ryan: I always thought the fashion industry seemed glamorous. Turns out mobsters are more ethical.
- Beckett: Oh my gosh, why do you think I quit? I'll take murderers over models any day!
- During the episode, Beckett does a favor for Matilda King, a fashion mogul, and models a wedding dress for her when her original model can't do it. Matilda is impressed by Beckett in the dress, telling her she'll make a beautiful bride someday and if she had a daughter she'd like for her to look like Beckett did in the dress. Rather than putting the dress in her magazine, Matilda later sends it to Beckett with a note saying it looks better on Beckett than it ever could on the pages of a magazine.
- Beckett reveals that she worked as a fashion model for a while before becoming a police officer. She had worked for Modern Fashion, which states her brief summer modeling job in Inventing the Girl.
- Castle and Beckett decided to have their spring wedding instead.
- When Beckett starts modeling in a wedding dress, she starts thinking about her mother and wishes she was there.
