Dexter Morgan: The full force of the FBI, that's the last thing I need. I've got to make sure Lundy gets his man. After I figure out a way to erase the marina files. And make up with my girlfriend. And then maybe I'll tackle world hunger because things can't really get much worse.
Vince Masuka: Agent Lundy.
Special Agent Frank Lundy: [nodes]
Vince Masuka: So I hear a rumor you're tracking all our internet activity. So is it true? 'Cause I can explain all that she-male stuff.
Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] The show has already started, but have they seen the feature presentation? Bane of the Bay Harbor Butcher starring Dexter Morgan as himself?
Angel Batista: [laying a hand on Dexter's shoulder; referring to the Bay Harbor Butcher] We've never been this close to this pendejo.
Dexter Morgan: [thoughts] Closer than you think, amigo.
Special Agent Frank Lundy: Is this a lion or a hippo?
Vince Masuka: I think it's a lion.
Special Agent Frank Lundy: Tastes like a hippo.
Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] It seems that my foster father and my biological mother were having an affair. It's bad enough I can't shake the visual, but the question's did he blame himself for her death? Is that why he took me in? Did he love her? Or was he just using her? Was he using me? I always thought Harry's code was on-the-spot creative problem-solving but maybe he planned for me to settle the score all along. It's times like this I wish I really were a drug addict.
[Dexter is talking to a copycat killer who was strapped to a table after he told Dexter that he actually had killed people before]
Ken Olson: I'm not the bay harbor butcher. I'm certainly not anybody's role model.
Ken Olson: What are you talking about then? Who are you?
Dexter Morgan: I'll let you know when I figure that out. Though, I got to tell you, I am well on my way because, as sure as I'm standing here, I don't need to kill you.
Ken Olson: That's a relief.
Dexter Morgan: I mean that need that comes from within that always drives me to this table - I don't feel it. I'm in recovery.
Ken Olson: Well, I mean, I knew you weren't gonna kill me.
Dexter Morgan: No, I'm gonna kill you I have to. I just don't kneed to. It's very empowering.
