|Directed by||Bill Roe|
When an associate museum curator is found dead due to having a stone gargoyle dropped on him, Beckett, Castle, and the team must answer the question of whether the killer is a jealous colleague, a jilted lover, the publicity-hungry museum director, or the curse of an ancient mummy whose tomb promises death for anyone who looks upon its face, as Castle couldn't resist doing.

- Castle: Do you believe that people get what they deserve?
- Beckett: If they do then I must have done something pretty terrible to be punished with you.
- Castle: Funny.
- Castle: You guys, there is no curse. Ow. Paper cut.
- Esposito: Mm-hmm.
- Castle: Yes, the curse gave me a paper cut.
- Ryan: These things start small. Then they snowball.
- Castle: Well, I'd love to stand around and tell scary stories all day 'cause I'm really good at it...But I have a date with a murder investigation.
- Martha: It's lucky your father doesn't believe in the curse.
- Alexis: Why?
- Martha: Because he's going into a building... Full of guns.
- Castle: I heard that.
- Montgomery: Had to messed with the curse, didn't you? Trying to be funny. You know what kind of hell I catch if Castle got eaten in the line of duty?
- Ryan: Don't tell me you believe in that stuff, sir?
- Montgomery: You know what i believe in, detective?
- Ryan and Esposito: Because there's no uptight in screwing with things you cant explain?
- Castle: This is the part where you say, "and I would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids."
