Rita Bennett: I married Paul because it was pregnant. And I won't marry again unless it's because someone loves me.
Dexter Morgan: I understand why you feel that way.
Rita Bennett: Being a father and being a husband are two very different things. You don't have to be both. I don't what both... unless it's real.
Dexter Morgan: [thinking to himself] Real. How do you show someone real love when you don't even know what it feels like?
Dexter Morgan: [to Rita] My life has always felt like an unanswered question. A string of days and nights, waiting for something to happen - I didn't know what. Rita, we're connected. Where ever I am, I feel you. And the kids. With me. They're what make me real. I want us to always go out for banana splits. And replant the lemon tree that keeps dying. And I never ever want to miss a pizza night. And that's how I know I want to marry you. Because something as simple as pizza night is the highlight of my week. But not without the kids.
Dexter Morgan: [taking a knee] Cody, Astor, you guys are my family. I'm gonna hang on to you for dear life.
Dexter Morgan: [to Rita] Please, say yes.
Cody Bennett: [nods head yes]
Astor Bennett: [nods head yes]
Rita Bennett: [laughs through her crying] Yes! Yes, we will marry you.
Dexter Morgan: [thinking while watching kids play] Role playing. Such an important part of growing up. When we were kids, whatever role Deb assigned me - evil monster, treacherous Nazi, horrible alien - I played them to perfection.
