  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Dexter: (voice-over) How about Fred Bowman, AKA, Freebo? Kills two college girls and skates on a State Police Screw-up. Otherwise known as Florida's catch-and-release program. Then he falls off the radar. Everyone's radar but mine.

    • (Quinn gives Deb a number to call, she walks away)
      Quinn: What, not even a thank you?
      Deb: Thank you. (turns around) Stop looking at my ass.

    • Deb: That's Miguel Prado, he's an ADA. He's been on a mission to put away as many bad guys as he can. You know, "A Safe Miami is the Only Miami."
      Masuka: A "Safe Miami" and we're all unemployed.

    • Dexter: (voice over) What the fuck happened back there? I went to kill Freebo and ended up killing a total stranger. I've never killed anyone I didn't completely vet before, whose guilt I wasn't absolutely certain of. I did something wholly inside the moment and wholly outside the code… something spontaneous. Who did I just kill?

    • (While having sex)
      Dexter: God, you're on fire lately.
      Rita: Are you complaining?
      Dexter: Complying.

    • Masuka: (about his article) No biggie, I've been published before.
      Deb: "Dear Penthouse" doesn't count.
      Masuka: Hey, that letter was famous.

    • Dexter: (voice-over) There were so many lessons in the vaunted Code of Harry. Twisted commandments handed down from the only God I've ever worshiped. 1 through 10: Don't get caught. That I got covered. But, killing someone without knowing if he's guilty, I'd love some help on this one, but my God is dead now.

    • Freebo: Stupid cunt's gonna redefine "short-term relationship." Catch my drift?
      Dexter: Yeah, I catch your drift. (voice over) And I'm entirely confident you've earned the privilege of being re-purposed as fish food.
