Castle: Great. So guess what happened?
Beckett: You were kicked out of the hotel for throwing a crazy party?
Castle: Those were the days. No…
Beckett: We've been tracking Vulcan’s network. Maybe we can help.
Mr. Smith: Detective, you are radioactive. You can’t even help yourself. Don’t try to contact me again.
Castle: Smith! There must be something we can do.
Mr. Smith: Run. Disappear. Because if you don’t, he will kill you.
Beckett: Yes, sir. Tons of times. But I haven’t found anything that seems relevant.
Montgomery: Well keep looking. You never know when something might turn up.
Beckett: You know, Castle, my mom had a saying. Vincit Omnia Veritas.
Castle: Truth conquers all.
Beckett: We’ll never find the truth if we run away.
Castle: Kate, we’re never going to find the truth if we’re dead. We’re not running away. We’re surviving, okay? We’re living to fight another day. We will take down Bracken.
Beckett: Castle –
Castle: Shh. It’s not your fault.
Beckett: I really thought we were gonna make it.
Castle: Hey. Whatever happens...
Beckett: I found the tape. I found it. It’s over. Senator Bracken, you are under arrest for conspiracy, fraud, and the murder of my mother, Johanna Beckett.
Caste: She’s proud of you. Wherever she is, she’s proud.
Beckett: I never could have done this without you.
