Show generally

Corrected entry: In the season finale of Season 4, when Arthur Mitchell threatens to steal his son's fillings from his teeth, his wife screams at him by his real-life name, "Jonathan" instead of "Arthur". (00:20:45)


Correction: There is no mistake. The woman cries out "Jonah" to her son, that's is name. In any case, Mr. Lithgow's first name is John, not Jonathan. TRIVIA: His middle name is actually Arthur.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In episode 7 of season 1, Doakes tells Debra she's just caught the worst serial killer in Florida history. At the time, the killer in question, the Ice Truck Killer, was blamed for four slayings. Ted Bundy confessed to 30 murders (albeit not all in Florida), while the "Gainesville Ripper" was convicted for five murders.

Correction: "Worst" is relative. Doakes may have been referring to the brutality of the murders than the actual body count. Jeffrey Dahmer may be deemed as a worse serial killer than Ted Bundy, even though he had fewer victims.

Corrected entry: In episode 3 of season 1, Rita's husband's friend takes her relatively new Toyota Rav4 in exchange for a drug debt of "two ounces of blow." Two ounces of cocaine equal about $1,400-$2,000.

Correction: Oh, yes, because drug dealers are going to be so concerned about making sure that they get precisely the right compensation for their wares. She owes him a debt, he's punishing her by taking her car. Precise value doesn't matter in the slightest.

Isaak Sirko: You didn't kill Victor out of vengeance. I have a feeling you're a different kind of animal. The question is...what kind are you, Dexter Morgan?
Dexter: The kind who hunted your friend down and strapped him to a board and put a plastic bag on his head and crushed his skull with a fire extinguisher. The kind who's gonna do the same thing to you, give or take the fire extinguisher.



When they are at the crime scene, you can plainly see the camera and camera man reflected in Special Agent Lundy's sunglasses several times. When it is a close up shot, it is even more obvious.



(POSSIBLE SPOILER) When Masuka brings up the list of doctors authorized to get the M99, Dexter removes his alias note that Dexter's fake alias (used to get the M99 tranquilizer) is Dr. Patrick Bateman. Patrick Bateman is the lead character of "American Psycho". This was most likely an intentional "easter egg" of sorts within the show.
