I think there were several that were right on the verge of being Firefly references. I’m thinking that since “Castle” has such a large and devoted browncoat following at times dialogue in the show might seem to be related to Firefly when maybe it was not intended.
That being said I’ll list three that I thought were pretty obvious.
1) Castle playing with a dinosaur at the very beginning ( had me laughing out loud right out of the gate)
2) Richard Castle & Detective Slaughter share a browncoat ( another reference that couldn’t be denied)
3) Detective Slaughter = Jayne Cobb (Jayne Slauobb)
Also Slaughter seems to speak many lines that are near, or pretty darn close to Firefly quotes that had my ears perking. Castle does the same.
Nathan & Adam are the browniest browncoats there ever were.
At the end, when the episode is over, Nathan and Martin Downey Jr. tout Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” super cool!

Some possible additional nods: (1) Castle is tricked into thinking someone died, only to have it revealed that he's the butt of a joke ("That's not funny!"), even calling into question the sanity of the joke's perpetrator. Got dished back what Mal served to Simon.
(2) At 24:03 and beyond. Slaughter offers something to Castle to drink, "That'll get you flyin' right." Castle replies with a wistful look, "Nope, it's not gonna do anything to turn back time." (sniff... still flyin' cap'n?)
(3) 13:20, witness says, "He screwed up another job last week. Abandoned a truck full of stolen medical equipment on the F.D.R. after he ran out of gas." XD

All of those would have been really obvious (and awesome) to Firefly fans without disrupting the normal view at all.

Maybe I'm reaching but when Slaughter had the Jamacian kid in the back of the garbage truck and was slowly cycling it I was reminded of the episode where Mal trapped Jayne in the airlock with it cracked open.

I caught the one about Slaughter wanting to keep his options open (Jayne with the grenades).

Well, I enjoyed that Castle episode more than I have enjoyed any for a while, and it was mostly to do with Adam and Nathan working together and dominating the screen. The folks above have already pointed out a lot of the references. Here are the ones I caught. Some of them...maybe it's just me seeing Firefly references in ordinary dialog, but still... :-)
Dinosaur play (Castle doing voices in Wash's style)
"Unless that’s a problem" ...like Book and Kaylee in Serenity Pilot
Slaughter is wearing a sorta military-ish olive drab coat -- in the style of Jayne in several episodes
Castle wearing a brown coat. (!!!)
Castle holds out hand for shaking and Slaughter ignores it (Mal with the Councilor’s body guard, War Stories)
"Any friend of the mayor is a friend of mine" (like Mal and Inara in Heart of Gold, although I wouldn't have minded a "business-like relationship")
Brian (the Westie) barges through Castle like Jayne does with Simon in …I forgot which episode. Maybe it's more than once.
Slaughter drinks from flask, passes it on (like Jayne does with Simon in BDM)
“Let’s do this” outside the Irish bar (like Mal and Zoe in Train Job)
Bar fight (was I just seeing things? but it reminded me of the bar fight in the beginning of Shindig...they used a stool in both scenes)
Handkerchief/bloody nose (like in Trash)
Truck of medical supplies…out of gas (Ariel and Out of Gas)
"Go caveman on that partner" (Jayne didn't say this, but Slaughter's line is so characteristically Jayne-like that it had me laughing)
"Pack a little punch there for a writer" (of *course* he packs a punch...he's *Mal*!)
Pretending that he killed the guy in the Jamaican shop (Mal's joke that Kaylee's dead, in Serenity Pilot)
"That guy’s insane. He’s insane." said by Castle (turnabout's fair play, Mal) (Wash's line from War Stories; also Wash's "You are psychotic" from Serenity Pilot)
"Nothin’. Well obviously not nothin’. We’re talkin’…. (reminded me of Mal and Zoe dialog)
"You shoulda seen the look on your face (laughing)" (Mal in Serenity Pilot, dished back to Castle by Slaughter)
Guy in the garbage truck...Jayne in the airlock (Ariel)
"Make sure I could trust you. That you had my back" said by Slaughter. (Shades of Ariel, Mal unable to trust Jayne)
"But nothin’" (Castle) (Used in the same way Mal says it to Inara in Trash)
"Let’s do this!" (Castle) (Mal to Zoe and Jayne in Train job)
"I like to keep my options open" (Slaughter) (Jayne in BDM re: grenades)
"Whoa whoa whoa" (Castle) (exactly like Mal backed up to a cliff in Train Job)
I had about 5 others that I wasn't sure of, so I left them off the list.
