- Beckett: That must have been kind of embarrassing.
- Castle: It was a minor blow to my ego. After that I had to channel my inner Castle, but once I did…nailed it.
- Beckett: Wow. You nailed playing yourself. That’s impressive.
- Beckett: This is why I hate social media. Once something is out there you have control. People can take a private moment and create their own context. I mean, we weren't even investigating the murder yet and they made us look like we were bad cops. Or worse. Like we didn't care.
- Castle: Come on, Beckett, it’s the internet. No one’s going to take that picture seriously.
- Beckett: 1PP did.
- Castle: Look. It’s going to blow over, okay? With millions of items being posted every minute this is but a blip on the net continuum.
- Beckett: You know the problem with anonymity? There’s no accountability. It empowers cowards to become bullies, just like this guy.
- Castle:Welcome to the sharing economy.
- Esposito: More like oversharing.
- Beckett: Really? And you’re opposed to all photos of oversharing women?
- Esposito: That’s... different.
