Last night’s all-new Castle — the ending to the explosive two-parter — was chock-full of conspiracy, jealousy, and just about every weird twist you could possibly think of, all of which provided perfect fodder for some awesome wisecracks.

Let’s be real: After all they’ve been through, the 12th precinct knows that the best way to handle the chaos is with a dollop of good humor.

Check out the top quotable moments from Castle Season 4, Episode 16, “Linchpin":

10. Gage: You can have answers or you can live. Your choice.

Is that supposed to be a tough one?

9. Esposito: I was Special Forces. I used to eat classified for breakfast, and writer boy can know?

Life can be so unfair.

8. Beckett: There is no big deal. Sleep with whomever you want, the more the merrier.

Is that sarcasm we detect?

7. Beckett: So you slept with her?
Castle: Yeah, yeah I slept with her.
Beckett: Have there been others? Muses?
Castle: No.
Beckett: Just wanted to see how big the club was.

The buck (better) stop here.

6. Castle: That whole sinking car thing is much cooler in movies than in real life.

It always is.

5. Sophia: This is real life, Rick, not one of your damn books. And when things go wrong, you can’t rewrite the ending like you did with us.

Castle = Busted!

4. Beckett: What kind of an outcome was this linchpin supposed to created?
Castle: The end of our country as we know it.

But no pressure or anything.

3. Sophia: You are the same reckless, immature, self-centered jackass you always were!

Tell us how you really feel

2. Castle: I guess the good thing about having your daughter at crime scenes is she can bring you clean clothes.

Always lookin’ on the bright side.

1.  Beckett: We’re off their case. I still have a murder to solve.

Beckett teaches us all a lesson in perseverance.
