Main Characters in this Episode
Richard Castle: There are... three.
Richard Castle: Make that four.
Trapper John: So you're the hero I'm gonna make an example of.
Trapper John: Sorry, your friend can't talk right now.
Kate Beckett: I wouldn't worry about him. I'd worry about yourself. I've got squad cars on their way.
Trapper John: You a cop? You called the cops?
Richard Castle: No, I... we were already on the line when you guys came in.
Kate Beckett: Listen to me. So far, nobody has been hurt and nothing has been stolen. So if you just leave the same way that you came in, you can just disappear.
Trapper John: You gonna promise not to coming look for me?
Kate Beckett: I don't look. I hunt. And trust me, you don't want that. So leave now, and this will just be a quirky little article in the Metro section.
Trapper John: Sorry, sweetheart. I'd rather make the front page.
Kevin Ryan: 10-30? Since when are we handling bank robbery calls?
Kate Beckett: Castle's there.
- Goof (continuity error): When Beckett enters the bank dressed as a paramedic, she is not wearing gloves. When she and Castle move "Sal Martino" onto the gurney, she has a glove on her right hand but her left hand is bare. When she exits the bank and meets Alexis, she is wearing gloves on both hands.
- Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): On the funeral card that revealed the name of the presiding priest, there is a spelling mistake: Priest is spelled "Preist".
- The word "Priest" is spelled incorrectly on the funeral program - it reads "Preist".
- Castle comments that the bank robber Dr. Howser could have picked a better name as an alias. Nathan Fillion was in "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" (2008) with Neil Patrick Harris, the actor who played Doogie Howser.
