  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Masuka: I imagined her naked plenty of times, but never like this.

    • Dexter: (to Rita's body) I hope you don't mind I chose that dress, you were wearing it when we first met. So, I thought since I won't be at your funeral, I don't deserve to be, the kids will be fine with Deb, way better off without me, I think that we agree about that. I was never really honest with you. I'm a serial killer, that's what I am. I know I lead you to believe that I'm a human being, but I'm not. It's a lie.

    • Dexter: She had a big heart, big enough for both of us. Had to be, I wasn't even human when we first met. I never expected that to change, she reached down and found something I didn't even know was there. She never hurt anybody. She was innocent. And she died a brutal death, and I can't fix it. But, I know I have to try here in Miami with the people who knew her, who cared about her, who loved her. (voice over) Like I did.

    • (After Dexter kills someone out of anger)
      Harry: That's the first human thing I've seen you do since you died, Dexter.
      Dexter: I thought you left me.
      Harry: I'm here. It's okay, son, to show what you're feeling.

    • Funeral Director: I'm sorry for your loss.
      Dexter: (voice over) How does he do that?
      Funeral Director: My sincere condolences.
      Dexter: (voice over) He sounds like he actually means it.

    • Debra: Dex, what are you doing?
      Dexter: I was just thinking about Rita and how much...
      Debra: miss her?
      Dexter: (voice over) much I lied to her from the very beginning.

    • Dexter: (voice over) When it's my wife in the body bag, everybody's looking and it's the neighbor crying, not me.

    • Dexter: (voice over) I watched 67 people die, and at the moment of truth I looked into their eyes, and they knew, and I knew they got what they deserved. But, what if that's not what happens, if you don't get what you deserve? If what you deserve is a white, picket fence, and your kids all around, and a husband who loves you. What if the least you deserve is a real human being, and what you get instead is me?
