Dexter

Dexter Morgan: There's something strange and disarming about looking at a homicide scene in the daylight of Miami. It makes the most grotesque killings look staged, like you're in a new and daring section of Disney World: Dahmerland!

People fake a lot of human interactions, but I feel like I fake them all, and I fake them very well, that's my burden, I guess.

Dexter Morgan

Harry was a great cop here in Miami. He taught me how to think like one; he taught me how to cover my tracks. I'm a very neat monster.

Dexter Morgan

Needless to say I have some unusual habits, yet all these socially acceptable people can't wait to pick up hammers and smash their food to bits. Normal people are so hostile.

Dexter Morgan

No blood. No sticky, hot, messy, awful blood; no blood at all. Why hadn't I thought of that? No blood. What a beautiful idea!

Dexter Morgan

Records Supervisor: You have a morbid sense of fun.
Dexter Morgan: That's probably true...

Sergeant Doakes: You give me the fucking creeps, you know that Dexter?
Dexter Morgan: Yeah, I know, sorry about that.

Harry and Dorris Morgan did a wonderful job raising me. But they're both dead now. I didn't kill them. Honest.

Dexter Morgan

Blood. Sometimes it sets my teeth on edge, other times it helps me control the chaos

Dexter Morgan

Lt. Maria Laguerta: So then he must have already had the head with him in the front seat. Huh, that's weird. Why would he keep it there?
Dexter Morgan: I don't know. So he could use a carpool lane

The only real question I have is why in a building full of cops, all supposedly with a keen insight to the human soul, is Doakes the only one who gets the creep from me.

Dexter Morgan

I think this is a friendly message like, "Hey! wanna play?" and yes I wanna play. I really really do.

Dexter Season 1 Quotes

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

Dexter Morgan

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.
