Don't be sorry your darkness is gone. I'll carry if for you - always. I'll keep it with mine,

Dexter [to Lumen]

Two serial killers go for a ride. Why do I get the feeling this joke ends with only one of them coming back?

Masuka: I have two words: autoerotic mummification

I got a reputation to live up to. I mean if my show does not make me people vomit and have an erection at the same time then I've let my audience down.


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.

All you can do is play along at life, and hope that sometimes you get it right.

I dream. I dream I'm floating on the surface of my own life. Watching it unfold. Observing it. I'm the outsider looking in.

Dexter Morgan

I just know there's something dark in me. I hide it. I certainly don't talk about it. But it's there. Always. This dark passenger. And when he's driving, I feel...alive. Half sick with the thrill, complete wrongness. I don't fight him. I don't want to. He's all I've got. Nothing else could love me, not even, especially not me. Or is that just the lie the dark passenger tells me? Because lately, there are these moments when I feel...connected to something else, someone. And it's like the mask is slipping...and things...people...who never mattered before, are suddenly starting to matter. It scares the hell out of me.

He doesn't need Saint Brigid; he has father Dexter.

It's said that everything is connected to everything. The butterfly effect. You drop a pebble into a pond and the ripples radiate outwards touching and effecting everything. Until finally a fish grows arms and legs and crawls out of the water...and picks up a rock and smashes the next two fish over the head...and we have the first serial killer.

We create our own destiny every day we live.

Turns out Cole and him are buddies. They f---ing poke each other on Facebook


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

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