Added DiffLines:

* PocketDial: Castle goes on a date with a woman and he's trying to get information from her. She starts to get a little frisky with him, and he accidentally calls Beckett on his phone. Becket hears things that make her think Castle is in trouble and rushes over to his place, where she finds him with his date in her underwear on top of him.

* OneOfUs: In-Universe, Castle's geek flag is flown loud and proud. However, more and more layers of the Beckett onion have shown she's quite a geek as well. She's a fan of comic books, could barely contain her glee at meeting Joe Torre, and used to cosplay as a character from the fictional show ''Nebula-9'' (which was clearly named after ''Babylon 5,'' but seemed to have elements of ''Series/{{Firefly}},'' a couple of different ''Star Treks'', and even ''Series/SpaceCases,'' of all things.)
--->"Yes, I was a sci-fi loving, costume-wearing geek. And you know what -- not ashamed of it or ''Nebula 9''!"
** Gates had a brief shining moment when she completely '''flips''' over a rare doll (part of a twin set) she'd been searching for that was found in a storage unit Castle bought for a case. Through the course of the episode, she admits to finally reading Castle's book, ordering the whole "Nikki Heat" series, and downright gushing to Castle about them when getting an autograph. Alas, it was all for naught as Castle ended up smashing the doll (and her original companion doll) during the investigation.

Added DiffLines:

* NarrativeCausality: A lot of Castle's theories, especially early on, are based on his [[GenreSavvy assumptions]] about what would happen if the case they're working was a mystery novel -- it's NeverTheObviousSuspect, reject the OrgyOfEvidence, and so forth. The hell of it is, he's right; the universe he inhabits really does work like a mystery story. He's just mistaking a TV show for a novel.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerfulPeopleAreSubs: ZigZagged in "[[Recap/CastleS2E16TheMistressAlwaysSpanksTwice The Mistress Always Spanks Twice]]". The BDSM club where the BodyOfTheWeek worked is patronized by various powerful men, but on the other hand the domme who runs it is herself a retired attorney. And then there's the various CasualKink moments this episode where Beckett, the homicide detective, acts domineering over Castle, the millionaire crime novelist, as well as a male suspect who was a sub client of the aforementioned BDSM club.
-->'''Castle:''' My safe word is "apples".

Added DiffLines:

** It helps that being 6' 2" and fairly well built, Castle isn't the easiest person to tackle, even for a strong man. Any time he's in a hostage situation, he is usually able to free himself from the criminal's grasp.


* PunnyName: TheOtherWiki states that Castle's name is a play on "Rich Asshole."

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: In "The Limey", the title character spends some time talking about [[IAmVeryBritish how amazingly English he is]], raised in the East End of London and educated at Eton -- unfortunately he does so in the broadest Australian accent this side of ''{{Neighbours}}''.
