  • Quotes

    • (Dexter sprays luminol around to look for blood in the warehouse where Lumen shot her victim)
      Lumen: What are you doing?
      Dexter: It's Luminol.
      Lumen: Luminol?
      Dexter: No relation.

    • Dexter: You killed somebody.
      Lumen: Because you wouldn't do it for me!
      Dexter: But you call me to clean up after you.
      Lumen: I didn't know what to do with the body!

    • Batista: Stay single as long as you can.
      Deb: Says the newlywed.
      Batista: Don't remind me.
      Deb: You've been married for five minutes. What happened to the honeymoon phase?
      Batista: I blinked.

    • Dexter: (voice over) Compartmentalization began as an architectural theory, divide buildings into sections which can be closed off to prevent a fire from spreading. Life can also be divided into closed-off sections. Makes everything much simpler.

    • Dexter: (voice over) I've always tried to keep the different parts of my life separate. Becoming a father made that much more difficult. And as a husband, I failed. But I'm a very neat monster who won't make the same mistake again.
