Daredevil

Episode 1.01: Into the Ring

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Your boy, he pushed me out of the way. He saved my life."
Elderly Man to Jack Murdock[src]
"He took out your men. How?"
"Caught them by surprise. Beat them... with his bare hands."
"Four men with his bare hands?"
"That is what we were told"
James Wesley, Vladimir Ranskahov, and Anatoly Ranskahov[src]

Dialogue

"Dad. Uh, it burns.”
“Jesus. Close your eyes. Matty.”
“Dad.”
“Close your eyes.”
“Dad.”
“Close your eyes.”
“Dad. I-I-I can’t see. I can’t see. I can’t see. I can’t see! I can’t see! I can’t see!"
―Matt Murdock and Jack Murdock[src]
"Perhaps this would be easier if you told me what you've done."
"I'm not seeking penance for what I've done, Father. I'm asking forgiveness, for what I'm about to do."
"That's not how this works. What exactly are you going to do?"
Paul Lantom and Matt Murdock[src]
"This office was barley touched by the incident, which is why it's on the market already. The neighbors weren't so lucky."
"The incident, is that what were calling it now?"
"Well, it sounds so much better than death and destruction raining from the sky, nearly wiping Hell's Kitchen of the map."
Susan Harris and Matt Murdock[src]
"So how long have you been practicing law?"
"What time is it?"
"It's 12:22AM."
"About seven hours."
Karen Page, Matt Murdock, and Foggy Nelson[src]
"All right, I'm just gonna say this once, and we can move on. You don't necessarily have the best judgment when beautiful women are involved, Matt."
"How would I even know if she's a beautiful woman?"
"I don't know. It's kinda spooky, actually. But if there's a stunning woman with questionable character in the room, Matt Murdock's gonna find her and Foggy Nelson is gonna suffer."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"Can I ask a personal question?"
"I haven't always been blind."
"I guess that's what everyone wants to know."
"That or, 'How do you comb your hair?'"
"How do you comb your hair?"
"Honestly, you just-- You hope for the best."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]
"How did it happen?"
"Car accident. When I was nine."
"Must have been rough."
"No. I made it through."
"Do you remember what it was like... To... to see?"
"I, um... Yes, I remember."
"I can't imagine what that must be like."
"You know, I'm supposed to say I don't miss it. That's what they teach you in trauma recovery. Define yourself by what you have, value the differences, make no apologies for what you lack. And that's all true for the most part... but it doesn't change the fact that I... I'd give anything to see the sky one more time."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 1.02: Cut Man

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"Thing about red, they can't tell how much you're bleeding."

"I'm a nurse. Work the ER at Metro-General. A few weeks ago, cops bring in three men. Said they were robbing tourists, beating them up pretty bad. Apparently a man in a black mask took issue with their activities and decided to step in. I counted nine broken bones between them. A few days after that, EMT's bring in a nineteen-year-old waitress, said... some guy she knew waited for her after work in the parking lot, attacked her, tried to drag her in the ally. She said she screamed and screamed, and a man in a black mask... heard her, and he saved her life."

Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]

"Everything's so loud."
―Matt Murdock and Jack Murdock[src]
"So they took this kid just to get to you?"
"Yeah, I've been making their lives... difficult lately."
"But you're blind."
"There are other ways to see."
Claire Temple and Daredevil[src]
"Claire, go upstairs and get him. We're gonna need help carrying detective Foster to the roof."
"The hell are we going to the roof for?"
"Less chance of someone in the building hearing him scream."
Daredevil and Claire Temple[src]
"Okay I find a guy in a dumpster who turns out to be some kind of blind vigilante who can do all this really weird shit, like smell cologne through walls and sense whether someone unconscious or faking it. Slap on-top of that he can take an unbelievable amount of punishment without one damn complaint."
"The last part's just Catholicism."
Claire Temple and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 1.03: Rabbit in a Snowstorm

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, forgive me if I seem distracted. I've been occupied of late with... questions of morality, of right and wrong, good and evil. Sometimes the delineation between the two is a sharp line, sometimes it's a blur. And often it's like pornography; you just know when you see it. A man is dead. I don't mean to make light of that, but these questions, these questions are vital ones, because they tether us to each other, to humanity. Not everyone feels this way. Not everyone sees the sharp line, only the blur. A man is dead. A man is dead. And my client, John Healy, took his life. This is not a dispute. It is a matter of record. A fact. And facts have no moral judgment; they merely state what is. Not what we think of them, not what we feel, they just are. What was in my clients heart when he took Mr. Prohaszka's life, whether he is a good man or something else entirely, is irrelevant. These questions of good and evil, as important as they are, have no place in a court of law. Only the facts matter. My client claims he acted in self-defense. Mr. Prohaszka's associates have refused to make a statement regarding the incident. The only other witness, a frightened young woman, has stated that my client was pleasent and friendly. And she only saw the struggle with Mr. Prohaszka after it had started. Those are the facts. Based on these, and these alone, the prosecution has failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that my client was not acting solely in self-defense, and those, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, are the facts. My client, based purely on the sanctity of the law, which we've all sworn an oath to uphold, must be acquitted of these charges. Now, beyond that, beyond these walls, he may well face a judgment of his own making. But here, in this courtroom the judgment is yours, and yours alone."
―Matt Murdock to the jury[src]

Dialogue

"Was that a knock?"
"Someone's at the door."
"Our door?"
"Uh, Karen."
"Right... okay."
Foggy Nelson, Matt Murdock, and Karen Page[src]
"What is your problem?"
"He wouldn't even give us his name, Foggy."
"You wouldn't care if you could see the zeros on this check."
"Yeah, maybe you would if you couldn't."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 1.04: In the Blood

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Maybe if he had an iron suit or a magic hammer that would explain why you keep getting your asses handed to you."
James Wesley[src]

Dialogue

"You really need to get some kind of body armor of something."
"It would slow me down too much."
"So will a bullet."
Claire Temple and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 1.05: World on Fire

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Lawyer by day, vigilante by night. How does that work?"
Claire Temple[src]

Episode 1.06: Condemned

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"That sounds bad but I don't speak asshole."
―Daredevil to Vladimir Ranskahov[src]

Dialogue

"Who is this?"
"I think you know. You've been asking about me. I thought it was time we spoke."
"Say your name."
"You first... That's what I thought. You and I have a lot in common."
"We're nothing alike."
"That's what you'll tell yourself."
"You're feeding off this city like a cancer."
"I want to save this city, like you only on a scale that matters."
"Now tell that to the people you've hurt."
"Young man life is not a fairy tale. Not everyone deserves a happy ending."
"I'm gonna find you and I'm gonna make you pay for what you've done."
"No, you are not. Not that I don't admire what you're trying to do to change the world with nothing but desire and your own two hands secure in the knowledge that you're doing the right thing, the only thing. That's something that I do understand. But we both can't have what we want. So your part in this drama, by necessity, comes to an end."
"It's gonna take a lot more than a voice on a radio to stop me."
"It's not me you need to worry about. It's the city you just blew the hell out of."
"You You think anyone's gonna believe that?"
"You're running around in a mask, holing up with a known felon in the wake of a series of bombings. There's that police officer you're holding hostage, so yes. Actually, I do."
―Daredevil and Wilson Fisk[src]
"The Russian is he alive?"
"I'm still here, you fat shit!"
"Does that answer your question?"
Wilson Fisk, Vladimir Ranskahov, and Daredevil[src]
"You're a child playing at being a hero."
"No, no, I'm not trying to be a hero. I'm just a guy that got fed up with men like you and I decided to do something about it."
"That's what makes you dangerous. It's not the mask. It's not the skills. It's your ideology. The lone man who thinks he can make a difference. I'm glad we could talk. I- I respect your conviction even if it runs counter with with my own."
"Yeah, keep telling yourself you've won. It'll make what I'm gonna do to you so much more satisfying."
"Your part ends tonight."
"And if that's true, others will take my place. They'll see what I was trying to do and they'll make sure--"
"No, they won't. The city will burn you in effigy. Your name, your very existence will be met with abhorrence and disgust."
Wilson Fisk and Daredevil[src]
"What did you do?"
"What you forced me to do. Goodbye. I'm afraid we won't speak again."
"Fisk Fisk! Fisk, answer me!"
―Daredevil and Wilson Fisk[src]

"I'm in agony, dude."
"What, did you go back to the gym?"
"Hell, no. Do I look capable of making healthy life choices?"
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"That's the tragedy of you being blind, you've never seen me dance."
"Yeah, but I can cite the legends I heard in law school."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"You know, Karen's been asking questions. The cuts, the scrapes, the bruises."
"What do you tell her?"
"You have a drinking problem."
"That's horrible."
"Well, it's more plausible than you put on a devil suit and beat the shit out of strangers."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"What have we got?"
"All right. Well, uh, Mr. Marino's dog was viciously beaten by his neighbour after the dog, um defiled the neighbour's statue of Saint Francis."
""Defiled"?"
"Um, humped repeatedly until completion."
"That's a dog I want to defend."
"Oh, he's all yours, cowboy. And, uh,[Mr. Maxwell here was attacked in a bar fight last night."
"He started it."
"Oh, I called Metro-General and the other guy will recover, but if you are looking at trial, you probably wanna wait until his jaw is unwired."
"Your girl's a badass."
"You've no idea."
Matt Murdock, Karen Page, Foggy Nelson and Mr. Maxwell[src]
"I would say it's good to see you, but under the circumstances..."

"If you're here to chase ambulances, you might notice: there are none."

"Did you just say "my man"?"
Foggy Nelson, Brett Mahoney and Matt Murdock[src]

"Brett, you can trust us."
"We're lawyers."
Brett Mahoney, Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson[src]
"DA's going bat shit trying to figure it out. This isn't the first hit that matches this MO. Call it massive gang-on-gang overkill. Downtown office thinks we got new players in Hell's Kitchen, and whoever they are, we're talking some kind of paramilitary-type organization with the training, knowledge and hardware to take out half the city."
"What do they want?"
"That's what's driving the DA nuts. We don't know who they are. We just know who they're not."
"I'd say they're definitely not fond of the Irish."
"You think?"
Brett Mahoney, Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson[src]
" What are we stepping into?"
"I don't know. I think I can rattle some cages, see who talks but, uh..."
"Did you even listen to Brett? We're talking about a squad of trained killers loose on the streets. Not the kind of guys you challenge to a fist fight in your underwear."
"Hey! It's not underwear, Foggy. Underwear is comfortable."
"You're a lot of things. Bulletproof is not one of them."
Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock[src]
"I gave you what you wanted. My hand's busted, I got all this glass I gotta replace now. Maybe, just let a brother go, huh? Come on, D. I'm out on parole, man. I can't go back to jail. Please. I missed Hell's Kitchen."
"Yeah. It didn't miss you."
"Fine. Know what? Be like that. 'Cause we both know I'll be back out by the end of the month..."
"I'll see you then."
Turk Barrett and Daredevil[src]

―Matt Murdock to Melvin Potter[src]

Dialogue

"Blood is being shed, Foggy."
"And you've donated more than your fair share to the cause."
―Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson[src]
"You think, uh you think he's crazy?"
"Uh, the Punisher? No. I think he was inevitable."
"Inevitable? How so?"
"Maybe... maybe we created him. All of us. The moment that we let Daredevil, or the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, or whatever it is-"
"There's... there's no connection."
"Well, actually, I think it's a pretty straight line, Matt. Daredevil practiced vigilante justice in our backyard and we applauded him for it. I know that I did. And we never stopped to think that maybe... his actions could open the door for men like this. Men men with guns. Men who think that the law belongs to them."
―Matt Murdock and Karen Page[src]

Episode 2.03: New York's Finest

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"They say you don't hear the bullet that gets you. Always thought that sounded like a bunch of bullshit to me. How about you, Red? When I cracked off your forehead the other night did you hear that?"
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"You know what I think of you, hero? I think you're a half-measure. I think you're a man who can't finish the job. I think that you're a coward."
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"You know, you're one bad day away from being me."
Punisher to Daredevil[src]
"Look, I care about our friend. I believe in what he's doing, I believe the city needs him."
Claire Temple to Foggy Nelson[src]

Dialogue

"Why didn't you take my mask off?"
"Don't give a shit about who you are."
"You killed everyone else. Why am I still alive? Huh? I got in your way twice now... and you don't strike me as someone who just lets that happen."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"Military grade hardware. You seem to know your way around it. And you sure carry yourself like a soldier. What are you gonna do with all this?"
"I'll do what's required."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"I'm guessing you've done this, what ten, maybe 20 times? How long's it been? Six months, a year or your whole life? Something tells me you don't take breaks. You know, no one else has to die. You could stop now. Walk away."
"Walk away? Could you do that? Could you walk away?"
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"Where'd they send you?"
"You a shrink, Red? Now, come on, you must be something when you're not wearing the long johns, right?"
"I'm just a guy."
"Yeah? You ever been to war?"
"No."
"Yeah then don't talk about it."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"You know it can be hard? You run around this city in a pair of little boy's pajamas and a mask. You go home at night, right? Take that mask off, maybe you think it wasn't you who did those things, maybe it was somebody else. Well, see, soldiers we don't wear masks, yeah? We don't get that privilege."
"You know what I think?"
"What's that?"
"You're still at war."
"Oh, for crying out loud."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Why am I here?"
"Everything you do out there in the streets, Red, it doesn't work. Did you know that?"
"Oh, and what you're doing is better?"
"What I do, I just do. It's out of necessity."
"Come on. You know you're not the only one, right? Who did you lose? Huh? Was it someone you loved? Well, boo-hoo. Let me tell you something, buddy. Everybody's lost someone. Doesn't mean you have to do this."
"Well, loss doesn't work the same for everybody, Red."
"Yeah, that's right. It's clearly not working for you."
"Maybe not. We don't get to pick the things that fix us, Red. Make us whole. Make us feel purpose. My moment of clarity? It came from the strangest of places. What kind of name is The Devil of Hell's Kitchen, anyway? I mean, really?"
"I didn't ask for that name."
"I'm sorry, I don't see you running from it."
"I don't do this to hurt people."
"Yeah, so what is that, just a job perk?"
"I don't kill anyone."
"Is that why you think you're better than me?"
"No."
"Is that why you think you're a big hero?"
"It doesn't matter what I think or what I am. People don't have to die."
"Come on, Red. You believe that?"
"I believe it's not my call, and it ain't yours either."
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"I'm not a bad guy, Red."
"You wanna explain that to the orphans and the widows of the men you killed?"
"For Christ's sake, that's what you think? I'm just some crazy asshole going around unloading on whoever I want to?"
"Yeah, that's exactly what I think."
"That it?"
"You think you're anything else?"
"I think that the people I kill need killing, that's what I think."
"You left men hanging from meat hooks!"
"They got off easy, in my opinion."
"You shot up a hospital."
"Yeah, and nobody got hurt who didn't deserve it."
"Oh, yeah. What about you, Frank? What happens the day someone decides you deserve it?"
"I'll tell you what, they better not miss."
"Come on, you run around this city like it's your damn shooting gallery."
"Yeah, what do you do? What do you do? You act like it's a playground. You beat up the bullies with your fists. You throw 'em in jail, everybody calls you a hero, right? And then a month, a week, a day later, they're back on the streets doing the same goddamn thing!"
"Yeah, so you just put 'em in the morgue."
"You're goddamn right, I do."
"You ever doubt yourself, Frank?"
"Not even for a second."
"Really? Really? You never think for one second, "Shit, I just killed a human being"."
"That's being pretty generous."
"A human being who did a lot of stupid shit, maybe even evil, but had one small piece of goodness in him. Maybe just a scrap, Frank, but something. And then you come along, and that one tiny flicker of light gets snuffed out forever."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Look around, Red. This city, it stinks. It's a sewer. It stinks and it smells like shit and I can't get the stink out of my nose. I think that this world, it needs men who are willing to make the hard call. I think you and me are the same!"
"That's bullshit, Frank, and you know it!"
"Only I do the one thing you can't. You hit'em and they get back up. I hit'em and they stay down!"
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]
"You still think this piece of shit is worth saving."
"I'm not gonna shoot him."
"Yeah, okay, I will, if you don't kill me first."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"Take the shot, Red, take the shot."
"No."
"You don't do it, his death's on you. Either way, you're a killer."
"What kind of choice is that?"
"The kind I make every time I pull the trigger. The kind I'm gonna make right now."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]

Episode 2.04: Penny and Dime

Dialogue

"Sometimes I think you just might really be the devil."
"Sometimes I think I might be, too."
Punisher and Daredevil[src]
"There's a new man in town, he's, uh killing people in cold blood."
"Yeah, I read about what happened with the Irish. Must have been a busy couple nights."
"Yeah, I did everything I could to uh, protect my client."
"That work is done, Matthew."
"Because I failed."
"At least you tried."
"Well, like you said, his life had value."
"A whole world's been lost and others are dying one after the other Matthew, what are you looking for?"
"Forgiveness."
"For what?"
"Uh not doing more?"
"You just said you did everything you could. If you're the man I understand you to be, I'm sure that's true."
"Then why do I still feel guilty?"
"Guilt can be a good thing. It's the soul's call to action. The indication that something is wrong. The only way to rid your heart of it is to correct your mistakes and keep going until amends are made. I don't know what you didn't do or what you should have done but the guilt the guilt means your work is not yet finished."
―Matt Murdock and Paul Lantom[src]
"Gotta hand it to Brett."
"I'm glad people like him are looking out for Hell's Kitchen."
"Yeah. And I'm glad someone was looking out for him."
"Press are calling Castle a "cold-blooded psychopath." The D.A.'s going to have a helluva time using his prosecution to turn herself into a hero. It's all working out perfectly. "
"Wow. Way to bring us down..."
"I'm...!"
"Hey Josie, would you mind turning the TV off? It's upsetting some of the regulars. I think we've had enough Punisher for one evening."
"Okay."
"All right?"
"I'll drink to that."
"To Brett. And to a safe Hell's Kitchen."
"Here-here. I'm gonna get us another round. I hope you two saved room for shots."
"Oh, no-no..."
"Thanks, Fog. Hey. You okay?"
"Yeah. Okay, that wasn't convincing, was it? Umm... I don't know. I just, uh... Days like today remind me how precious life can be, you know?"
"What's your brother like?"
"Um... he's sweet. He's a... good brother."

One letter to the right office and I get her visa pulled. I can prove she was an accomplice to every one of your crimes. And now you're thinking you can serve your sentence, hop on a jet, go to her whenever you like. Live somewhere like Monaco, or I don't know, wherever the hell you fat cats go to sun yourselves. But you can't. You can visit her, but you'll never live with her. Because this is New York, Wilson. You live here. This is your jungle. This is your blood, like it is mine."
Matt Murdock to Wilson Fisk[src]

Dialogue

"I know you're regaining power in here."
"Yes, ask my lawyer. He'll deny it. Ask the guards! They'll deny it. Ask the inmates here. They'll cut their tongues out before they talk. But I have something to say to you. When I finally get out of this cage I will dismantle the lives of the two amateurs that put me in here! You, Mr. Murdock, and Franklin Percy Nelson!"
"No, I put you here, not Nelson."
"The two of you took the laurels, you'll both take the blame! I'll chop both the heads off of that snake and I'll spend more than six dollars on postage to bring you down! You see, I've had a lot of time to reflect on my journey here Mr. Murdock, my mistakes, everything I took for granted, and while I try and sleep in this bleak place, the one thing that keeps me warm is the thought that I will look down upon this city, the city that birthed me, with the woman that I love, whom, whom I love with everything that I am. You're worried that Frank Castle will reek havoc on Hell's Kitchen? Just wait... Let's do this again some time..."
―Wilson Fisk and Matt Murdock[src]
"On paper, we're still Frank Castle's attorneys."
"And I am so proud of that."
"Frank's out, but instead of going after him herself, Reyes is dragging us into the lion's den. What could we possibly know about his escape?"
"Precisely dick."
Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson[src]

Episode 2.11: .380

Dialogue

"So, there's this... organization. Its members believe in some pretty... strange shit. And they have deep pockets, even deeper connections all over Hell's Kitchen."
"Like a cult?"
"It's kinda hard to explain. They call themselves the Hand. Nobu's one of them. Those killers that attacked us, I think they work for him."
"Why did they want those patients back?"
"Honestly, I don't know."
"That candle that you're burning at both ends? Sooner or later, it's gonna fizzle out."
"I'm fine. Really."
"You know the problem with martyrs? The good ones end up dead. You know, it's... it's one thing to try to take on the mob, or to block some shady real estate deal. But this stuff?"
"Those people just killed your friend."
"I know!"
"I can't just let that happen, Claire. Not in my city."
"It's not your city anymore. Matt, admit... you're in over your head. There's no shame in that."
―Matt Murdock and Claire Temple[src]
"Help me, work with me to find the man who gave the order."
"And then what, Red, we gonna bring them in for justice, is that what we're gonna do? Your way's bullshit, Red, it doesn't work, I need them dead, I need them gone! It's gotta be permanent, it's gotta be finished!"
―Daredevil and Punisher[src]

Episode 2.12: The Dark at the End of the Tunnel

This section requires expansion


Episode 2.13: A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"See you around, Red."
Punisher[src]

Dialogue

"I wanted to say a few words, but... I don't have any."
"God rest her soul. That should be enough."
"You know, once in college, I brought her roses. She hates roses. You wanted her dead."
"Was it worth it?"
"What?"
"Loving her."
"You taught me to cut all my ties to humanity... to other people. I had only a few moments with her... amidst all the... noise, chaos, and the violence. We were together only for moments. That was all. Orchids. She likes orchids. And, yeah, Stick... it was worth it."
―Matt Murdock and Stick[src]
"So, what if... What if... from now on, if... if we make it... wherever you run, I... I run with you?"
"You're not serious."
"I've never been more serious. This... Elektra, this is a part of me that I need. And you're the only one who gets it. Without this, I'm not alive. I'm not. Not really. And I know that now, thanks to you. I don't know what we are together, and if we have any chance in the future... I don't... But I... I do know that I'm free with you. Like with no one else."
"You hide from yourself. You don't let anyone in."
"You. I let you in. Think about it. What if this isn't the end? What if it's just the beginning?"
"No... They'll find us."
"No, we'll keep moving. We'll change identities. We'll... we'll hide. They'll never catch us. What do you say?"
"Uh, I say... let's go to London. Yeah? Madrid. Tunisia. There are sexy places to hide."
"Hey, I've never been further north than 116th Street, so..."
"Because you love this city."
"And I'd give my life for it, but... there's one thing in this world that makes me feel more alive. And that's you."
"I'm the Black Sky, Matthew."
"Yeah, and I'm the Devil of Hell's Kitchen."
Daredevil and Elektra[src]

Episode 3.01: Resurrection

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"Yeah, the accident blinded me. It just also uh, sharpened my other senses."
―Matt Murdock[src]
"You see, that was me, Sister. I suffered willingly. I gave my, uh... sweat and blood and skin without complaint. Because I too believed I was God's soldier. Well, not anymore. I am what I do in the dark now. I bleed only for myself."
―Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"You know... you and Foggy had me almost convinced it was alcohol. It makes a lot of sense. You know, the secrecy, abandoning social and professional commitments. It... it certainly sounds like an addict."
Karen Page[src]
"Angry, sarcastic... and stubborn. Maybe you don't have any friends."
Maggie Grace[src]

Dialogue

"Damn! What happened to you?"
"Life."
―Orphan and Matt Murdock[src]
"I don't need him to be a part of me anymore. And I don't want him to be."
"I want to believe you. I'm not so sure Daredevil is the problem."
"Ouch."
―Matt Murdock and Karen Page[src]
"Somebody once told me that warriors were meant to be alone. That caring for people would make me weak."
"Sounds like he needed to get laid."
"Ha! That actually explains a lot. I mean, he was right, of course. I let people in, I paid a price. I won't make that mistake again."
―Matt Murdock and Maggie Grace[src]
"And I get the sense things are complicated with you and the guy upstairs."
"No. Not at all. If anything, I'd say we finally know where we stand with each other."
Maggie Grace and Matt Murdock[src]
"You weren't listening."
"I heard every spiteful word. You might hate God right now, but the feeling is not mutual."
"No, I don't hate him. I've just seen his true face, is all. And, for the record, I had friends. I had a life. I care about people, and I'm choosing to let them believe that I'm gone because I am. I'm not Job. And I know my truth now."
"What truth?"
"Well, that in front of this God... I'd rather die as the Devil than live as Matt Murdock."
―Matt Murdock and Maggie Grace[src]

Episode 3.02: Please

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"Well, there you go. That is the difference between us. I no longer care what God wants."
―Matt Murdock to Maggie Grace[src]
"See, I got this real sensitive nose."
―Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"You're good... at arguing and deflecting and denying you're angry to other people. But you're gonna have to deal with your anger, Matthew. Find a way to... harness it. Or it will destroy you."
Paul Lantom[src]

Dialogue

"I used to listen to people's prayers. In here and out on the street. You know, people asking for God's help or justice or... vengeance sometimes. See, it's always the same. "Please, God." I thought that God let me hear the prayers... so that I could answer. So that's what I did. That's what I was trying to do, was trying to help people. But I am not what I was. Can't do what I used to do."
"Give it time. Whatever your new reality is, you'll adjust."
"When I heard all those prayers, all those... suffering people, I thought it was God's voice. But I was wrong. All I ever heard was people in pain. And all he ever gave any of us was... silence."
"So now you believe your calling to do what you do was a mistake?"
"I was deluding myself."
"Maybe that's a good thing to realize, Matthew. Maybe... it's time for you to stop."
"Oh... no, Father, uh... my delusion was thinking God had anything to do with it. I'm not as capable as I was, but... I don't get to choose who I am. I'm Daredevil. Not even God can stop that now."
―Matt Murdock and Paul Lantom[src]
"Thank God for you."
"He didn't help you. I did."
Neda Kazemi and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 3.03: No Good Deed

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"That's it. Let the Devil out. Felt good, didn't it? Too bad you still can't get at me. Not with the FBI protecting me. I'm going to kill everyone you love, and there's nothing you can do about it."
―Kingpin Illusion[src]
"So the Devil is back."
Kingpin[src]

Dialogue

"Doesn't make any sense."
"Of course it does. God is angry with you."
"What are you talking about?"
"You don't think God knows you tried to kill yourself?"
"No. That has nothing to do with this."
"God restored your hearing... just in time to hear my name chanted by the crowds. Just in time to learn, in the long run, I won, you lost. Does that sound like God's forgiveness?"
"No. It sounds like... hell."
"You'll never keep Karen safe. In the end, you'll kill her, too."
"Stop it."
"Just like your father. And Stick."
"I said stop."
"And Elektra. They all died because of you, Matthew."
―Matt Murdock and Kingpin Illusion[src]
"So, you're inside. Now what?"
"Why would they let you out?"
"Does it matter? The real question is, when you find me, what are you prepared to do?"
"See, if the FBI are protecting you, that means you cut a deal."
"With everything I know about crime in this city... the FBI will be eating out of my hand."
"You'll manipulate them."
"You don't know that."
"I know you."
"Maybe prison has changed me. Maybe right this moment I'm giving the FBI information that will save lives. While you're here doing what? Whatever this is. Wouldn't that be something? If I became more valuable to this city than you ever were."
―Kingpin Illusion and Matt Murdock[src]
"It's got the best view."
"You should be rotting in a cell."
"So you're gonna bring me back to prison? But you know that won't work. There's only one way to stop me, but you're not gonna do it."
"Are you sure about that?"
"In a way, you're my accomplice. Everything that's happened since you refused to kill me is on you. The bodies that I've stacked up. The ones to come. I wonder who's next. You can follow him right to me. You know you want to. You can take him. Grab his gun. Come for me. I'm caged up. Unarmed. But you won't. You can't kill me. You can't even kill yourself."
―Kingpin Illusion and Matt Murdock[src]
"Do you believe people can change?"
"I'm still holding out hope."
"I don't think we can. Not really. I think we come into this world who we are. And maybe we get a little nicer. Or a little angrier. But we can't change our fundamental nature."
"Well, you'd actually have to try to know."
―Matt Murdock and Maggie Grace[src]
"So, what are you gonna do?"
"I don't know. Maybe I'll stop him. For good this time."
"Well, just be careful that you don't become the monster."
Maggie Grace and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 3.04: Blindsided

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Why? Why would he let us think that he was dead?"
"It wasn't Matt that I saw, Karen. I mean, not really. It was Matt. All five feet, ten inches of him, but... the way that he spoke to me... something was missing."
"Well, that's nothing new. There's always something missing with Matt. I used to think that it was... it was busy lawyer, distracted Matt. Then I thought it was weight-of-the-world-on-his-shoulders Matt. But you know what? It's just Matt."
"But it wasn't any of those. I think a part of him was buried under Midland Circle. I don't know if he's coming back."
"So much for him promising he'd stop lying to us. Letting us think he was dead."
"A whopper."
"I think Matt's made his choice. It doesn't really leave any room for either of us."
"No. I guess it doesn't."
"Well, I am not going to sit here and wait for Matt to come to his senses. Fisk is out, and he has to be stopped."
Karen Page and Foggy Nelson[src]
"It's quite something to see. For a blind man, you have very impressive reflexes, Mr. Murdock."
Kingpin[src]

Episode 3.06: The Devil You Know

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Has Matt been a shitty friend lately? Without a doubt. But, deep down, I think it's hurting him as much as it's hurting us."
"How do you figure?"
"Because he could've gone to any reporter, Karen, but he came to you. Maybe Matt's finally coming to his senses. But even if he isn't, the way he's been treating us lately is on him. Us turning our backs would be on us. People have bailed on Matt his whole life, and I'm not gonna be one of 'em. You do what you want, but... that's not the kind of friend I wanna be."
Foggy Nelson and Karen Page[src]
""And some bloody their fists trying to keep the Kitchen safe.""
"I wrote that."
"It was in your piece about Daredevil. He's a complicated man."
"Yes. Yes, he is."
"I've read several of your articles the past few days. I've been trying to find some insight."
"Mmm. Did you find any? 'Cause I sure as hell didn't. Oh, I'm... sorry."
"Wears you out, doesn't it? Saving him from himself."
"Yeah. I don't think I can do it anymore. I think I'm done."
"Matt was a tough one when he was a kid. He held the record for the most Hail Marys, five years running."
"Hmm. I wonder how many he'd have to say these days."
"He came to us right after he lost his father. His only family. He was alone in the world. In his private darkness. Surrounded by strangers. Yet he seemed fine during the day. He'd eat with the others... attend his classes, go to mass. But he was plagued by awful nightmares. He'd wake in a sweat, screaming. He didn't say what they were about. He'd just call out for help. So I'd go, and I'd hold his hand till he fell back asleep. But I have so many children under my care. Matthew wasn't the only one. His nightmares went on for months. One night, Matthew called for help and I didn't answer. I didn't go to him. He never asked us for anything again. He shut us out. Shut everyone out. Everyone in Matthew's life abandoned him. Including me. When someone in need tries to push you away... you have to find the strength to hold on tighter."
Maggie Grace and Karen Page[src]

Episode 3.07: Aftermath

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"He doesn't kill people, ever."
Karen Page[src]

Dialogue

""The Hero of Hell's Kitchen Feeds a Simpleton to the Feds." Won't that make a hell of a headline for tomorrow's Bulletin?"
"Melvin made his choice."
"Yet you did hesitate before you left. Were you waiting for a messenger from the Lord to stop you, like he stopped Abraham from killing his son? Were you disappointed no messenger arrived... or relieved that you didn't have to risk your life for a weak-minded criminal? You're not strong enough to beat the man I sent for you. You're not smart enough to beat me. You couldn't do it alone. You couldn't do it with your friends. Your father never knew when to lay down. He was too proud. You will die the same way."
―Kingpin Illusion and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 3.08: Upstairs/Downstairs

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"If there's one thing we agree on, Nadeem, it's the greater good. Like house incarceration in exchange for good intel. Sometimes you and I have to hurt one person to save another."
―Matt Murdock to Ray Nadeem[src]

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"I don't know if I have the strength to get through this. He's so stubborn. Full of fury and foolish pride. Please... watch over him. Keep him from making the same damned mistake that took you from us. Our son is too much like you, Jack."
Maggie Grace[src]

Dialogue

"You have a history of hurting people. I'm not handing you a federal agent if you're gonna kill him."
"I don't do that."
Ray Nadeem and Matt Murdock[src]
"Spent a lot of time fighting. Angry. Go ahead and say it."
"I promised to keep my mouth shut."
"But you want to say it sounds familiar."
"Does it?"
"I didn't have anyone either, but I'm nothing like him. The tapes make it sound like he was a killer at a young age. The guy's a psychopath. And I had a chance today. A shot to catch him off guard, and I blew it."
"You did what you thought was right. You kept your word to Agent Nadeem."
"Yeah. And how many people will die because of it?"
―Matt Murdock and Maggie Grace on Benjamin Poindexter[src]

Episode 3.09: Revelations

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Growing up without your parents, Matthew, you don't grow to see them as people. You need to understand that... to understand her."
Paul Lantom[src]

Dialogue

"You... of all people... all those times I looked to you for guidance. You saw me struggling... and you chose to hide the one thing that could have changed everything for me. Please, Father, help me understand why you would do that."
"I prayed for Maggie to find it in herself to tell you years ago."
"She couldn't find it in herself to walk nine blocks to visit me as a kid. Or to comfort me when my father was murdered and I thought that... I knew that I was alone in this world."
"You were never alone--"
"Yes, I was! And you let me believe it."
"Yes. Yes, we did."
"Why?""
―Matt Murdock and Paul Lantom[src]
"I guess you know everything now, Matty."
"Everything I need to. Meh. Doesn't change a goddamn thing."
―Illusion Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]
"It's a shitty way for you to find out, Matty, about your mother."
"Yeah. You should have told me."
"Maybe I promised her that I wouldn't."
"That is no excuse"
"Yeah, I know, kid. But after I took that bullet, Maggie had years to tell you the truth and she didn't. That wasn't my choice, it was hers."
"You both lied. You both left."
"I never left you."
"You didn't go down in that fight like you were supposed to. Knowing they'd kill you for it."
"I did that for you.So you'd know what your old man is made of."
"My old man chose his ego over a lifetime with his son. That's what I know."
"It wasn't ego. It was living up to a code. Being a man. It means lovin' the feel of my fist in someone else's face. It means waiting for them to hit the ground and knowing that I put them there. And, yeah, okay... maybe I put that at the top of my list and maybe it cost me everything, including you. But you do the same thing."
"No, I don't."
"You have a code, too. You beat the shit out of people. You tell yourself it's okay because you didn't kill anyone. There is something wrong with us, Matty. It's just who we are."
"That's who you were, Dad. I'm not like you. I don't throw fights. And I don't let everyone else suffer 'cause of some bullshit code. Not anymore. When I get to Fisk... I'm gonna kill him. "
―Illusion Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]
"You're not fallin' for that, are you? That guy, he ain't in your corner. Not anymore."
"That doesn't matter."
"It's been a long time since you used Muay Thai ropes, Matty."
"That guy in my suit kicked my ass. I can't beat him from a distance. I gotta draw him in close and do more damage."
"You're too mad to think straight. And it's gonna get you killed. Matty, come on. Your mother didn't only leave you. She left me, too."
"You looking for sympathy? 'Cause that's not happening."
"She left us because we're cursed. Because she knew we got the devil inside."
"So it's my fault?"
"Would you be honest with yourself? You put on that mask because it lets you feel all right with who you really are. It lets you hurt people and makes you feel like it's for something important..."
"...something good, maybe even for God. But that ain't the truth, and we both know it. You and your father are cut from the same cloth. A corrupt boxer who takes as much satisfaction in inflicting pain as he does money for taking dives. And his son, who's trying to convince himself he's any better than his criminal father. You were born from nothing. You remain nothing."
―Illusion Jack Murdock, Matt Murdock and Illusion Kingpin[src]

Episode 3.11: Reunion

Dialogue

"No matter what I do... there is no atoning for that. Okay? There is no way to come back from it."
"What if... it is the way back? For me? I can't let Fisk go."
"Killing anyone... even Fisk... it will change everything that you... that you feel about yourself."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]
"You know, something just kinda hit me. Watching you... wall yourself off from her."
"You know?"
"Uh, yeah. She told me. Said she felt ashamed about what she did. And that... everyone you ever cared about left you."
"Can we not do this now?"
"Is that why you insist on doing everything alone?"
"I don't insist--"
"Pushing Foggy and me away."
"I'm not. I told you, I'm tryin' to protect you--"
"I think you're trying to protect yourself."
"You wanna talk about this right now? There are people tryin' to kill us, and you wanna--"
"Just shut up for a second, Matt, okay? Look, I was never gonna leave you up there, and I'm not leaving you now. Neither will Foggy. Despite the fact that you've been a complete asshole to him, he'd still follow you over a cliff."
Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 3.12: One Last Shot

Dialogue

"I need to ask you something."
"You want to know about Daredevil."
"I stepped off the path for a few weeks, and it destroyed my life... but your life, you step on and off all the time."
"It complicates my life, too. Trying to have it both ways."
"Does it? I mean, your friends know who you are, what you do."
"My life almost got them killed. And not for the first time. I don't see how I can have it both ways."
"But you already do. I messed up, and no matter what happens today... I don't know if my wife's ever coming back. But your friends keep coming back. I mean, how do you hold onto them?"
"It's not me. It's them."
Ray Nadeem and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 3.13: A New Napkin

Spoken by Matt Murdock

"I'm coming for you, Dex. And my suit."
―Matt Murdock to Benjamin Poindexter[src]
"It's over."
―Matt Murdock to Kingpin[src]
"He told me something, years ago, when this happened, that I never forgot. See, I was pretty angry at God and bitter towards his world. How could a loving God blind me? Why? Anyway, he told me... God's plan is like a beautiful tapestry. And the tragedy of being human is that we only get to see it from the back. With all the ragged threads and the muddy colors. And we only get a hint at the true beauty that would be revealed if we could see the whole pattern on the other side... as God does."
―Matt Murdock to Maggie Grace[src]
"Feels like half of Hell's Kitchen is here today to say goodbye to Father Paul Lantom. Seems fair. He certainly welcomed everyone here, Catholic or not. And he expected those of us who were to, uh, look for ways to do good in our community. Not even the kids got out of that requirement. I'm sure I'm not the only one who remembers his "suggestion" that we give some of our First Communion money to the poor box. And that was his way. To think of the community, and the, uh... and the individuals in it. To think in terms of, "What can I give?" He gave his life, right here in this church, protecting others. Standing up to a man who used fear as a tool to set neighbors against one another. If Father Lantom had an enemy, I would say it was fear. For me, personally, he spent many years trying to get me to face my own fears. To understand how they enslaved me, how they divided me from the people that I love. He counseled me to transcend my fears, to be brave enough to forgive... and see the possibilities of being a man without fear. That was his legacy. And now it's up to all of us to, uh, live up to it."
―Matt Murdock's eulogy[src]
"You helped me see the truth about myself."
―Matt Murdock to Karen Page[src]
"We're all just trying to do more good than harm."
―Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken about Matt Murdock

"Listen. Something's been brought to my attention. As an officer of the court, I'm compelled to report it. I have reason to believe that someone's gonna try to murder Wilson Fisk today."
"Someone, huh? About what time is this going down? I wanna have some popcorn ready."
"Need I remind you of your obligation to protect and serve?"
"Stick your obligation up your ass, Nelson. If Fisk disappears, all his bullshit goes with him."
"And the FBI agents on his payroll just fold back into the mix. Including the one who shot Ray. Don't think of it as protecting Fisk. Think of it as protecting the case we can build against the shitbags who helped him. Once we get them, they'll turn faster than old milk."
"Still, with Fisk gone, we'll get 'em eventually."
"Brett, please. This certain someone we're talking about... he's angry. But I know he'll do the right thing if I can just slow him down. Give him time to think."
Foggy Nelson and Brett Mahoney[src]
"Well, unless Matt figures out some way to stop him, he's going to get away with it. With all of it."
"You mean unless Matt kills him."
"Shouldn't have warned Mahoney."
"If the police have Fisk surrounded, maybe Matt won't be able to go through with it."
"Or maybe he'll get arrested. Or worse."
"Karen--"
"Look, I'm not saying that I want him to kill Fisk. I don't want that. What if it's the only way? It's uh,... it's not murder if it's self-defense, right?"
"Technically, plotting to kill someone is the exact legal opposite of self-defense."
"You know what I mean."
"I get it. Our best shot at taking down Fisk died with Nadeem. But yesterday was also a good day... because Matt came back to us. The real Matt."
"Yeah, for, like, a minute maybe."
"Eventually, he'll come to his senses. Matt's Matt because he believes that everyone deserves a shot at redemption."
"Except Fisk."
"Everyone. It's a Catholic thing. That's why he doesn't kill people. If he crosses that line... Matt will never be able to forgive himself. And being around us will just remind him of who he was and what he's done."
"Yeah, we'd really lose him, wouldn't we?"
"Forever, this time."
Karen Page and Foggy Nelson[src]
"You should stick to beating on people in alleys, because you're not going to get in my head."
Benjamin Poindexter[src]
"He isn't the real Daredevil."
"How do you know?"
"Because he is."
Brett Mahoney and Officer[src]
"Matt should be here."
"Well, I'm pretty sure he is."
Foggy Nelson and Karen Page[src]
"You have a generous heart, Matthew. To see the good in so much pain."
Maggie Grace[src]

Dialogue

"Why are you telling me this?"
"'Cause Fisk wants to get married tonight. And I don't think he deserves a life of happily ever after."
Benjamin Poindexter and Matt Murdock[src]
"You… you want me to kill you."
No prison can keep me. You know that. Come on, kill me!"
"No! God knows I want to, but you don't get to destroy who I am. You will go back to prison, and you will live the rest of your miserable life in a cage, knowing you'll never have Vanessa, that this city rejected you. It beat you. I beat you! You'll keep my secret, and you won't harm Karen Page or Foggy Nelson or anyone else. Because if you do, I will go after your wife. And I will prove Vanessa ordered the murder of Agent Ray Nadeem, and like her husband, she'll spend the rest of her life in a cell."
―Matt Murdock and Kingpin[src]
"Anyway, I've been thinking a lot about it recently, 'cause... I realize I've made some bad choices and hurt people that I love without meaning to."
"You don't always know when you start down a false path."
"No, you don't. And that's my point. I realize that if my life had turned out any differently, that I would never have become Daredevil. And although people have died on my watch, people who shouldn't have, there are countless others that have lived. So, maybe it is all part of God's plan. Maybe my life has been exactly as it had to be."
―Matt Murdock and Maggie Grace[src]

Jessica Jones

Episode 1.13: AKA Smile

Spoken about Matt Murdock
