Castle: Ghosts

A woman was found murdered inside a transient hotel in a bathtub full of motor oil as Castle and Beckett investigate. After uncovering the dark past of the woman, they decide they'll need to seek the help of a crime journalist who may know more about this woman than he is telling. Meanwhile, Beckett uses her best poker face as she squares off against Castle, with both money and pride at stake.

Look Who's Talking
was a popular run of three movies released 1989-1993 which presented the world from the point of view of those unable to talk. The central characters were an unwed mother (played by Kirstie Alley), a cabbie who helps her and falls in love(John Travolta), and the child she has, voiced from sperm to toddlerhood with aplomb and sharp wit by Bruce Willis. In the first sequel, a younger sister was added, voiced by Rosanne Barr. The third sequel devolved to pets, and lacked either Willis or Barr's voice talents.
