Dexter (TV Series 2006–2021) Poster


Michael C. Hall: Dexter Morgan



  • Dexter Morgan : I've lived in darkness a long time. Over the years my eyes adjusted, until the dark became my world and I could see.

  • Dexter Morgan : [voiceover]  People fake a lot of human interactions, but I feel like I fake them all, and I fake them very well. That's my burden, I guess.

  • Debra Morgan : Bathroom's all yours.

    Dexter Morgan : Eh, kind of always was.

  • [repeated line] 

    Dexter Morgan : [thinking]  Tonight's the night.

  • Dexter Morgan : Harry and Dorris Morgan did a wonderful job raising me. But they're both dead now. I didn't kill them, honest.

  • Vince Masuka : The fucking Bay Harbor Butcher is butchering up my online social life!

    [Masuka leaves the room] 

    Dexter Morgan : Sorry.

  • Dexter Morgan : [voiceover]  Harry was a great cop here in Miami. He taught me how to think like one; he taught me how to cover my tracks. I'm a very neat monster.

  • Debra Morgan : Why is it we never talk brother/sister stuff?

    Dexter Morgan : Our dad was a cop, you're a cop, I work for the cops... for us, this *is* brother/sister stuff.

  • Dexter Morgan : [as victim averts his eyes from dead bodies]  Look! Or I will cut your eyelids right off your face.

  • Dexter Morgan : Tonight's the night, and it's gonna happen again and again and again. Has to happen...

  • Vince Masuka : Say it.

    Dexter Morgan : ...You're my daddy?

    Vince Masuka : Sounds weird when you say it.

  • Dexter Morgan : How many more bodies would there have been had I not gotten to those killers? I didn't want to save lives, but save lives I did. Motivation aside, I think Harry and Lundy would agree on this one.

  • Dexter Morgan : We have an elephant in the room, and its name is Sex.

    Rita Bennett : [laughs weakly]  Tell me about it.

    Dexter Morgan : Hey, as far as I'm concerned, it can just stay in the corner and mind its own damn business.

    Rita Bennett : [softly]  Easier said than done.

    Dexter Morgan : Yeah,

    [gently brushes her hair back] 

    Dexter Morgan : but it needs to be right, for both of us, or it won't be right for either of us. I don't want that. Do you?

    Rita Bennett : No. You know, I can't believe I found the one good truly decent man left on the planet.

  • Sergeant James Doakes : [Dexter is about to hit Doakes with a flashlight]  Go ahead. Try it. I've been waiting.

    Dexter Morgan : This neighborhood?

    [shines the flashlight on himself] 

    Dexter Morgan : It's full of crazies. I'd lock my doors.

  • Dexter Morgan : [Dexter throws Roger into the back of the mini-van]  You were right about the ample cargo space.

  • Dexter Morgan : Doakes thinks he knows my secrets. But he only needs to look at this - my body of work - to know the real me.

  • Special Agent Frank Lundy : Suit up if you're gonna touch it.

    Dexter Morgan : Oh! No, I'm just dropping off some x-rays. I'm Dexter Morgan...

    Special Agent Frank Lundy : I know who you are.

  • Dexter Morgan : It's strange to have a creation out there. A deeply-mutated version of yourself, running loose and screwing everything up. I wonder if this is how parents feel?

  • Dexter Morgan : So what's up, hot shot?

    Debra Morgan : Alright, get this. Lieutenant's looking for that refrigerated truck in every swamp, glade and chop shop from here to the Keys. The way I see it, that whack-job truck driver threw a severed head at your car. It's not as if he's shy.

    Dexter Morgan : You think he's hiding the truck in plain sight, wanting it to be found?
