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

Being a father and being a husband are two very different things.

Rita: (referring to the Bay Harbor Butcher) You know, I hope they catch him today, and I'm not a violent person, but I hope they hurt him. (turns to kiss Dexter) Have a good day.
Dexter: (voice over) Make up your mind.

Rita: (about her mother) You'll like her, Dexter. She's great. She's a very strong woman.
Dexter: I'll keep that in mind in case I have any heavy lifting to do.

Rita Bennett: I got your message. How's Debra?
Dexter Morgan: Hmm, she has all her limbs.
Rita Bennett: Thank God she is alive. That poor thing must be a mess, falling for a serial killer.
Dexter Morgan: What are the odds?

Paul: If they see me here, like this, I'm gonna lose them forever.
Rita: Paul, the one good thing that came out of our marriage are those kids. And I know you love them. But if you want to have any kind of real relationship with them, it has to be with the father they have, not the father they wish they had.

I can't help it, I kill things.

Dexter Quotes

I love Halloween. The one time of year when everyone wears a mask... not just me. People think it's fun to pretend you're a monster. Me, I spend my life pretending I'm not. Brother, friend, boyfriend - All part of my costume collection. Some people might call me a fraud. Let's see if it will fit. I prefer to think of myself as a master of disguise.

Dexter Morgan

[narrated, in reference to Doakes] My devil danced with his demon and the fiddler's tune is far from over.
