  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (19)

    • Dexter: The full force of the FBI, that's the last thing I need. I got to make sure Lundy gets his man, after I figure out a way to erase the marina files and make up with my girlfriend. And then maybe I tackle world hunger, because things can not get much worse.

    • Masuka: (While fire alarm is on) All clear, everybody out! Respect the vest. Don’t make me take out my hose.

    • Lundy: Too much background noise over there. Hearing's the first thing to go. Or is it memory? I always forget.

    • Dexter: (pulls fire alarm) (voice over) Apparently the new Dexter is stuck in high school. Maybe I am a late bloomer.

    • Angel: No job, no relationship. You got guns and a minor assault record. Olson: And I voted for George Bush. Both times. What's your point?

    Trivia (3)

    • Music: "More Love" by Jon Licht.

    • When Masuka and Deb are smoking outside the building, he asks Deb for a light, and we can see Deb's cigarette is almost finished. However, in the next shot, when Deb hands over her cigarette, it becomes considerably longer.

    • Dexter pulls a wall mounted fire alarm pull station as a diversion and then calmly pushes the actuator back in to cover it up. This is not possible with modern pull stations because once the lever is pulled out, the actuator on the station must be reset with a key to allow the fireman to determine which precise alarm was pulled. This also happens with the smoke detectors but in that case a LED remains on to signify which alarm triggered the fire panel.
