Dexter

Option two - get him the hell out of my life. But it's not that simple, He taught me how to golf; I taught him how to kill.

Dexter: Wow, I didn't get it before, Miguel, but you can't be reasoned with, guilted, controlled. This whole back and forth game for leverage is pointless.
Miguel: That's right. I'll do what I want, when I want, to whomever I want. Count on it!
Dexter: I will.

Miguel: You think this is funny?
Dexter: Not at all. They said that stain would come out.

Freebo: Stupid cunt's gonna redefine "short-term relationship." Catch my drift?
Dexter: Yeah, I catch your drift. (voice over) And I'm entirely confident you've earned the privilege of being re-purposed as fish food.

Dexter: (voice-over) There were so many lessons in the vaunted Code of Harry. Twisted commandments handed down from the only God I've ever worshiped. 1 through 10: Don't get caught. That I got covered. But, killing someone without knowing if he's guilty, I'd love some help on this one, but my God is dead now.

Dexter: God, you're on fire lately.
Rita: Are you complaining?
Dexter: Complying.

You seem uncertain. It's uncomfortable, isn't it? Just when you think you've answered all the questions, another one smacks you in the face. Life, life, life. Life is just like that. Which is why I prefer death.

(voice over) We're supposed to see hope in children, but right now all I see are little bundles of uncertainty. And germs, but that's another matter. I love kids; I can play with them, enjoy them, and leave. I don't have to worry about what they'll become. A Nobel Prize laureate, a drunk, president of the United States, or someone like me. Why do parents take the chance? I've never felt compelled. But why would I; I'm not in the business of giving life.

(voice over) What kind of father would I be? After all, I kill people.

In the land of predators, a lion never fears the jackal.

(voice over) It seems ironic that I, an expert on human dismemberment, have to pay $800 to have myself virtually dissected.

(voice-over) Role playing; such an important part of growing up. When we were kids whatever role Deb assigned me, evil monster, treacherous Nazi, horrible alien, I played them to perfection.

Dexter Quotes

Deb: (excitedly) A baby? a motherfucking rolly-poly, chubby cheeked shit machine? Are you kidding me?
Dexter: I've never heard it described in quite those words before, but yeah.

Tonight's the night. And it's going to happen again, and again. It has to happen. Nice night.
