Trivia

Looking at Tucci's blood on the gurney, Masuka suggests that they photograph it. In response, Dexter jokingly calls him Jackson Pollock. Jackson Pollock was an American abstract expressionist artist who used drips and dashes to paint his canvases - and a site where a bloody murder has been committed will also feature drips and dashes, as Dexter knows.

Goofs

If Masuka is a hypochondriac and so afraid of catching leptospirosis from rats, why didn't he bother to wear a medical mask while rummaging through a rat's nest? See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [narrating] I don't understand America's obsession with cars. I can just imagine squeezing Rita and the kids into this thing. Hitting the open road, cramped quarters, public bathrooms, hours of nothing but conversation. Someone's American dream, my nightmare.

Another Great, Chilling Episode!
26 December 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The fifth episode of Dexter continues the thrilling story of the Ice Truck Killer and the hunt to catch him. As the season progresses, the story gets a little darker and darker. I like how they incorporated even flashbacks of Dexter's childhood here and we get to see what his ideas of love is past and present. I loved how one of the major themes here is love and how Dexter tries to find love to seem normal.

This episode, "Love American Style" is about how Rita's friend fiancée goes missing and Dexter inquires about him and finds out that there is this guy named Jorge Castillo who murders Cuban immigrants if they don't pay him. Meanwhile, Debra gets new leads on the Ice Truck Killer after talking to the victim to have survived this killer's brutality.

Overall, this is a really good episode and is really tense but very engaging. Even though these episodes are nearly an hour long, we don't want them to end. I must say Dexter is a really interesting guy and I liked the way how he went about his victims especially in this episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
