Who said it?: Richard Castle
The story behind the quote: This quote comes from the ABC crime drama Castle. The show features prominent crime novelist Richard Castle who managed to rope in Detective Kate Beckett to investigate crimes and murders for inspiration for his new books. The two do form a cohesive unit, with Castle using his imagination to help solve the crimes Beckett is investigating.
The quote comes from the episode entitled Last Call. Richard Castle (played by Nathan Fillion) and Detective Kate Beckett (played by Stana Katic) learn of a secret basement that was used during the prohibition. Castle fantasizes how the murder could have taken place there but Beckett quickly shoots holes in his theory. This is when Castle delivers the quote.
Geek wisdom: When we have a good and imaginative story in our heads, we sometimes do not see the flaws in them.
