Quotes

[last lines]

Dexter Morgan: [voice-over] Born in blood, both of us, Harry was right. I thought I could change what I am, keep my family safe. But it doesn't matter what I do, what I choose. I'm what's wrong. This is fate.

Dexter Morgan: It's okay. Life doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to be lived.

Arthur Mitchell: [after being captured by Dexter] Look at you. I never took pride in what I did.

Dexter Morgan: No, you're a very special kind of monster. You destroyed your own family.

Arthur Mitchell: I gave them everything!

Dexter Morgan: No, you took everything. Their future, their dignity, their hope. Christina... even killed herself.

Arthur Mitchell: [shocked] No!

Dexter Morgan: Because of you.

Arthur Mitchell: S-she was weak!

Dexter Morgan: I can't believe there was a time when I actually thought I could learn something from you.

Arthur Mitchell: You think you're better than I am?

Dexter Morgan: No... but I want to be.

Arthur Mitchell: You can't control the demon inside of you any more than I can control mine.

Dexter Morgan: Did you ever actually try?

Arthur Mitchell: Oh, my God, yes. I prayed to be changed, to be made different.

Dexter Morgan: That's not trying. That's waiting to be stopped.

Arthur Mitchell: It worked, didn't it? Case in point.

Dexter Morgan: So what's the alternative, Arthur? Leave? Disappear? Fake my own death and start over again?

Arthur Mitchell: No. You'll still be you.

Dexter Morgan: I have a family, too, Arthur. I'm good for them.

Arthur Mitchell: [chuckles] You're like a child.

Dexter Morgan: A child with a big knife.

Arthur Mitchell: You dream of a heaven you'll never see.

Dexter Morgan: I don't believe in heaven.

Arthur Mitchell: Oh, but you do. This isn't your doing. This is God's plan. I accept that now. You have to do the same.

Dexter Morgan: I accept nothing. Nothing is inevitable.

Arthur Mitchell: It's already over.

[Dexter looks quizzically at him]

Arthur Mitchell: It's already over.

Dexter Morgan: [narrating] How is it I can kill people and feel no regret, but disappointing Rita makes me feel like the scum of the earth?

Dexter Morgan: I wonder if Rita is looking at this same moon at this same moment. I like that - connected by light. The dark passenger has been fighting against it, trying to keep me all to himself. But it's my turn now, to get what I want. To embrace my family. And maybe one day not so long from now, I'll be rid of the dark passenger.

Dexter Morgan: [to Dexter] If you hadn't been in my life, I wouldn't be who I am. You've given me confidence. And support. You've been the one constant - the one constantly good thing in my life.
