Dexter Morgan: [narrating] It's said that everything is connected to everything. The Butterfly Effect. You drop a pebble into a pond, and the ripples radiate outwards, touching and affecting everything. Until finally a fish grows arms and legs and crawls out of the water. And picks up a rock and smashes the next two fish over the head. And we have the first serial killer.
Miguel Prado: So what are we looking for?
Dexter Morgan: Proof - that he's guilty. We know he bludgeons people to death, so, look for something... bludgeony.
Dexter Morgan: Did you ever drop a quart of milk and watch it spill out all over the floor?
Miguel Prado: Yeah.
Dexter Morgan: There's six quarts of blood in the human body. This isn't going to be pretty. This isn't gonna be pretty. There's no shame in backing out.
Miguel Prado: Dex, after 14 years of filing briefs, trying cases, and dealing with bullshit, this is all gonna look nice and neat in comparison.
Dexter Morgan: [while shopping for murder supplies with Miguel] I'll put together a starter kit for you.
Rita Bennett: It's the hormones. I go crazy when I'm pregnant.
Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] Tell me about it.
Dexter Morgan: [saying out loud] That's not true.
