  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Dexter is playing Halo in Miguel's office, Miguel 'minimizes' the program - but the only open programs are the two open videos used to display the recorded footage of Halo and to display the fake desktop - a laptop desktop, evidenced by the battery life. Also likely to belong to a graphic's designer - the desktop is cluttered with icons for graphic editing programs that Miguel would be unlikely to have.

      After the camera moves away from the desktop image, the computer screen can be seen again - still displaying the Halo image.

    • While Dexter is waiting for Miguel in his office he is playing a multiplayer game of Halo 3 on his computer, which is actually only available for the Xbox 360 console.

  • Quotes

    • (Dexter and Rita are arguing when they get to Deb's home.)
      Dexter: Deb! Glad to see ya.
      Deb: (to Rita) Fight?
      Rita: Eh. His best friend is cheating on my best friend, and he won't tell me with who.
      Deb: (to Dexter) You have a best friend?

    • Dexter: (voice over) It's becoming more and more clear that I'm going to have to deal with Miguel. Option one: I kill him. But he's too high profile. A popular ADA disappears, the manhunt would be endless. Everyone he knew would be scrutinized, and that includes me. He's also my best man. I'd be expected to grieve.

    • (Miguel shows Dexter the shirt with cow's blood on it)
      Miguel: You think this is funny?
      Dexter: Not at all. They said that stain would come out!

    • 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.

    • Dexter: (voice over) 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.

    • Miguel: I am the last person you wanna fuck with because I will fuck you back in ways you never even imagine!

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

  • Notes

    • Jeff Lindsay, who plays the role of "Jeffries", is the author of the Dexter novels.

    • When Dexter and Rita come to check on Astor after their dinner with Miguel, Debra makes a joke about how she let Astor watch the horror movies SAW and SAW 2. Actress Julie Benz, who plays Rita, actually starred in SAW 5.
