Lundy: How about some sesame crackers to go with that?

Dexter (Voice Over): A**hole.

|Michael C. Hall|
| ~ I like olives.|
~ (About the character of Dexter) I think Dexter is a man who…a part of himself is very much frozen, or arrested in a place that is pre-memory, pre-conscious, pre-verbal. Something very traumatic happened to him, he doesn't know what that is. And I think on some level he wants to know. He denies his humanity, he describes himself as someone who is without feeling, and yet I think that he maybe suspects - in a way that maybe isn't even conscious yet when we first meet him - that he is in fact a human being. Dexter's a unique killer in that his father saw his dark impulses, shined a light on them, and told Dexter that he saw them, he accepted them, that Dexter is good and that he is worthy of love. And I think that's what enables him to focus his energies in this unique way.
~ (About his Golden Globe nomination for "Dexter"). The show has momentum, it's captured people's imagination.... I won't deny that it's a thrill to be recognized in this way. I'll bring as many people [to the Jan. 15, 2007, Globes ceremony] as I can, based on how many tickets they give me.
~ It's interesting to play a role where you don't really have to preoccupy yourself with any need to convince yourself that you're not acting.
~ People feel like they know me from the work I have done, but it's not me.

| Camilla: "You don't bring me donuts."|
Dexter: "And you don't sing me love songs."
Harry Morgan: "Son, there are people out there who do really bad things. Terrible people. And the police can't catch them all. Do you understand what I'm saying? "
Teenage Dex: "You're saying... they deserve it. "
Masuka: "Hey, better bundle up."
Dexter: "I like the cold."
-from Born Free-
Lt. LaGuerta: "Tell me Dexter, how do you get to be so smart?"
Dexter: "Hmm... Lots of sleep."
Doakes: "********, what the hell were you really doin' in here?"
Dexter: "The **** are right there."
Doakes: "Yeah, but in ten years you've never rented a single porn title."
Dexter: "Huh, how would you know? Call me an 'office crazy' but, your humbling interest in my personal life could be misinterpreted as harassment in some circles."
Doakes: "So report me."
Dexter(in head): "I could think of easier solutions..."
Doakes(as he leaves):"Nice ****."
Doakes: "Just make sure we check the dock slips for criminal records, it's possible the victim was killed by one of these boat owners out here."
Dexter: "Yeah or maybe it was just an easy-access spot to dump a corpse at night. There are no light poles, the freeway exit ramp's just a block away."

Donovan: "No, no."
Dexter: "It's horrible, isn't it, isn't it? Open your eyes and look at what you did!! Look or I'll cut your eyelids right off your face. It took me a long time to get these little boys clean. One of them had been in the ground so long he was falling apart, I pulled him out in bits and pieces."
Donovan: "Hail Mary, full of grace-"
Dexter(slaps him): "Stop, that never helped anybody!"
Donovan: "Please, you can have anything."
Dexter: "That's good, beg. Did these little boys beg?"
Donovan: "I couldn't help myself, please, you have to understand!"
Dexter: "Trust me, I definitely understand. See, I can't help myself either. But children, I couldn't do that, not like you. Never, ever, kids."
Dexter: "I've got standards."
| Doakes(to Dexter): "Shut the f*** up and write your report already. I don't even know why I need you. Grab a crayon psycho and scribble this down."|
Doakes: "What's your thing psycho?"
Doakes:"Lab geek, my a**!"
| Doakes:You give me the f***ing creeps.|
Dexter: Yeah, I know. Sorry about that.
Deb: "I knew her, now she's dead..."
Dexter: "Do you want a hug?"
Deb: "F*** off."
Gay man: "Are you finding Dr. Meridian helpful?"
Dexter: "Nah, I'm a sociopath....there's not much he can do for me."
Gay man: "Cute AND funny!" (what's funny here is that Dexter wasn't even joking)
Rita: "Oh Dexter, hows Deborah?"
Dexter: "Well, she has all her limbs."
Rita: "Imagine, falling for a serial killer."
Dexter: "Yeah, what are the odds."
Doakes: "You're supposed to be preserving the crime scene, a**hole."
Doakes: "Angel, you keep up with this woo-woo ****, I'm gonna walk right through you."
Rita: "I can't help it. I kill things."
Dexter: "That must be awful."
Masuka: "Say it."
Dexter: "You're my Daddy."
Masuka: "Sounds weird when you say it."
Lundy: "Hearing's the first thing to go. Or is it memory? I can't remember."
Angel: "You know, Pascal is just caught up in a cycle of reaction. She's not co-creating her own reality."
Dexter: "You know those words don't actually mean anything, right?"
Masuka: Hair pulling may not be manly, but it's very effective (advice given to Dexter to protect himself from Debra) ~There's Something About Harry, Season 2
Masuka: Hey Morgan, do you want to sit on my lap and tell me what you want for Christmas?
Debra: No thanks, the last thing on my list is a burning sensation when I pee.
Masuka: Your victim was smothered. That's not opinion, that's science. And science is a cold-hearted ***** with a 14 inch strap-on.
| Lila: This isn’t art. This is cottage porn.|
Lila: pardon my T**ts
(Upon discovering that Dexter is the Bay Harbor Butcher)
Lila: "No wonder he is so shut down!"
Doakes: "What are you? His accomplice?"
Lila: "... I'm his soulmate"
| Angel (To Dexter): You musta' been a ************ at cats-cradle|
Angel: (Refering To Sgt. Doakes) What crawled up his ass?
Deb: He hates lab rats.
Angel: Well here’s a headline, it's lab rats that make us cops look good.
Angel and Deb Examining Neil Perry's Stash
Deb: This is a record of everything he's ever done.
Angel: I got photos.
Deb: Those are his crime scenes. Did we release those photos to the press?
Deb: Did he take them himself?
Angel: He had to.
Deb: Did we just hit the motherload?
Angel: No. We hit the ************' motherload.
Angel: According to the DMV, this is where Perry lives.
Deb: Ew, with his seven inbred cousins by the look of it. Something has gotta be wrong with somebody that can live in a steel box.
Angel: Aluminum, actually. Nina and I had a deluxe multi-sectional.
Deb: For real?
Angel: It was our starter home.
Psych patient: (Repeating) She knows. She knows.
Angel: If she knows, you yapping about it ain't gonna change it.
Masuka: How come you got a hug and I get a pat on the nose?
Angel: Cause you're like a retarded puppy.
Deb: The Bay Harbor Butcher is one of our own.
Lundy: We keep this to ourselves for now. Just the three of us.
Angel: Well I'm gonna go tell it to a bottle of scotch.
Dexter: (about Lila) She's not really a decorator.
Angel: It's not really my apartment that I want decorated.
Angel: I heard that Doakes walked off in the middle of Lundy's questioning, and uh, Lundy didn't stop him. (Deb glares at him) I might've heard that wrong.
Dexter: Angel, if I got to choose a person, a real person, to be like, out of anyone, it'd be you.
Angel: Not really sure what that means, but thanks Dex.
| "I'm sorry Dex but she is gross. And pale. And nobody's pale in Miami. She is obviously a vampire. A gross english ti**y vampire."|
"Put those away or I will shove them up your ass." Deb sees handcuffs come out for Batista.
"Pale like a fcking corpse." Deb giving a desciption of Lila.
When Lila asks Dexter if he's coming with her. " Oh, my god. What did you do to make her so pathetically crazy for you? Does your dick dance?"
