(voice over) "Darling Rita, once you were a dream and a prayer. Now our future is as bright as the sun glinting off the morning dew. And I vow that I will..." Sounds like I'm marrying a unicorn.

Dexter: Dexter: (voice over) What do I have to offer a child? Just... me. Demented daddy Dexter.

Dexter: He lost two brothers, he doesn't know who to blame.
Rita: Certainly not you.
Dexter: (voice over) No, certainly not me.

(voice over) If home is where the heart is, where do you go when you don't have a heart?

Maria: I don't want you getting into any trouble over this. Use my authorization codes, and make it happen. Procedure above board, results under the table. You good with that?
Dexter: Absolutely. You need something under the table, I'm your guy. (Pause) That didn't come out right.

Miguel: They deserved it. I'm not like them.
Dexter: You are. Admit it.
Miguel: I'm like you.

Dexter: What did you say in your bachelor party speech? Friends are always honest.
Miguel: Friends forgive.
Dexter: But, I don't forgive you. And I don't get to have friends.

Miguel: I accept you, Dexter. I accept you like a brother.
Dexter: I killed my brother. I killed yours, too.

(voice over) It's not Freebo's blood. It's not even human. It's bovine, cow's blood. He's been using me the whole time. I didn't create a monster, I was used by one. He... used... me.

Miguel: Dex, this is the nature of a real friendship. We're gonna disagree, and when we do, we just go our own ways.
Dexter: No, no more individual projects.
Miguel: Individuality is what makes America great, man.
Dexter: I don't think that's what our forefathers had in mind.

Deb: (About King) Looks harmless, doesn't he?
Dexter: They usually do.

Dexter Quotes

I've lived in darkness a long time. Over the years, my eyes adjusted until the dark became my world and I could see. But then Rudy turned on the light. He flooded my memory and now I'm blind.
