  • Trivia

    • Continuity Error: The second time Dexter collects a sample of Little Chino's blood, he only collects enough to fill the tip of the pipet. But, in the next shot when Dexter is putting the blood on the slide, the pipet is filled much more.

    • As Dexter is leaving the office for the night, there is a visible reflection of a production crew member and a light stand in the glass door just as Dexter sees Lundy walking in the hall.

    • When Lt. Esme Pasquale is in her car talking on the phone, Lt. Maria Laguerta knocks on the window. She rolls the window all the way down, but in the next shot it's a couple of inches up again.

  • Quotes

    • Dexter: (to Rudy) Rest in peace. I am.

    • Gabriel: I've been boxing since I was ten.
      Deb: Tough neighborhood?
      Gabriel: Tough family. And those are just my sisters.

    • Mack: (hands Dexter two tranquilizer guns) So which will it be?
      Dexter: Both.
      Mack: Excellent.

    • Mack: So gators giving you trouble, Dex?
      Dexter: They, uh, ate my puppy.

    • (showing images of Dexter's kills)
      Lundy: First report from the field had these parts as coming from one body.
      Dexter: (voice over) Actually it's two.
      Lundy: Actually it's two.

    • Lundy: So let's get a jumpstart on the Bay Harbor Butcher. A moniker which, by the way, repulses me.
      Dexter: (voice over) Well, we have something in common.

    • Dexter: (voice over) Little Chino. Shit. This guy is officially the highest point in all of Florida.

    • Angel: Hey, just visualize that door of opportunity just opening up wide for you, bro. And just walk right through it.
      Doakes: Angel, you keep up with this woo-woo shit, and I'm gonna walk right through you.

    • Dexter: (voice over) I will not kill my sister. I will not kill my sister. I will not kill my sister.

    • (at Dexter's apartment)
      Deb: Bathroom's all yours.
      Dexter: Yeah, kinda always was.

    • Deb: (about a murder victim) Shit, she had a little girl.
      Dexter: I know.
      Deb: This stuff never gets to you?
      Dexter: I'm more of a crying on the inside kind of guy.

    • Joey Nuñez: She's saying you fuckin' cops don't do nothin'.
      Deb: Grandma really talks like that?
      Joey Nuñez: Not exactly, but you get the point, right, bitch?

    • Dexter: The Bay Harbor Butcher?
      Masuka: That's what the press is calling whoever dumped those bodies offshore. Has a nice ring to it, no?
      Dexter: It's a little... lurid.

    • Dexter: (voice over) Where is the orderly, controlled, effective Dexter? How did I lose him? How do I find him again? I'm drifting... but not to sleep.

    • Dexter: You're still here...
      Rudy: I never left.
      Dexter: Yeah, you did. I killed you.
      Rudy: No. You just took my life.

    • Rita: Are you an addict?
      Dexter: Yes, I have an addiction.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Masuka:...hell, even meat pies.

      In the Stephen Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street the title character disposes of bodies by baking them into meat pies.

    • Rita: That's where you disappear to at all hours of the night, like Clark fucking Kent.

      Clark Kent is the alter ego of Superman, who disappears frequently to assume his superhero persona.
