Episode 1.01: Into the Ring

Spoken by Jack Murdock

"I don't want you to end up like your old man. I never studied. Look where it got me."
―Jack Murdock to Matt Murdock[src]

Spoken about Jack Murdock

"My dad, he used to come to this church back when I was a kid. He was a fighter. Old school. Boxer. Lost more than he won. Had a 24-31 record before he, uh... But he could take a punch. Jesus, he could take a punch."
"Language."
"Sorry, Father. Yeah, guys he went up against used to say it was like hitting oak. And nights when he was outmatched, my dad's strategy was to let 'em hit him till they broke their hands. Never got knocked out, my dad. Knocked down, sure, but he, uh, always got back up. He was always on his feet when he lost. Every now and then, though, uh... Every now and then he'd get hit and... something inside him would snap. My grandmother, she was the real Catholic. Fear of God ran deep. You'd have liked her. She used to say, 'Be careful of the Murdock boys. They got the devil in 'em.' And you'd see it sometimes, in the ring. His eyes would go dead... and he'd start walking forward real slow, hands at his sides like he wasn't afraid of anything. And the other guy, he'd see that look, and he'd try to get away from him. Nah. My dad, he'd catch him and trap him in the corner. Let the Devil out. Yeah. Now, I didn't understand it, you know? What he was feeling deep inside, I didn't understand it. Not back then."
Matt Murdock and Paul Lantom[src]

Dialogue

"Matty… Matty, Matty… Matty, Matty. Don-Don’t move. Okay? N-N-No, just don’t move. Somebody get us some help! Okay, okay, it’s gonna be alright. Just don’t move, don’t move. Okay?”
“What happened?"
―Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]
"Your boy, he pushed me out of the way. He saved my life."
"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!"
Old Man, Matt Murdock and Jack Murdock[src]

Episode 1.02: Cut Man

Spoken by Jack Murdock

"Hey, anybody who's got the guts to step into that ring deserves respect. Don't you ever forget that."
―Jack Murdock to Matt Murdock[src]
"Sometimes even when you get knocked down, you can still win."
―Jack Murdock[src]
"Hey, it's, uh, it's me. I'm about to go do something... Well I'm about to go be me. You know better than anybody that doesn't always go so well. I don't know how this is gonna go, but if I were a betting man, Matty's gonna need you. More than ever. Look after him, okay? And I know what I'm asking here, but he's a good kid. He sure as hell didn't get that from me. So it's better this way. Just once I want Matty to hear people cheer for his old man. Just once."
―Jack Murdock to Maggie Grace[src]

Spoken about Jack Murdock

"You haven't told me anything about you. All I know is you're very good at taking a beating."
"That part I got from my dad."
Claire Temple and Daredevil[src]
"In the red corner, weighing in at 164lbs, from Hell's Kitchen, New York, please welcome... Battlin'... Jack Murdock!"
―Announcer[src]

Dialogue

"Stitches?"
"Oh yeah."
"Better get the scotch. No, it's for you."
"Really"
"You think I want your hands shakin' like last time? This is my face we're talkin' about. Go ahead. Take a... just a little sip."
"Uh! Ah, it burns!"
―Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]
"It ain't how you hit the mat."
"It's how you get up."
Matt Murdock and Jack Murdock[src]
"I'm working on it. Each grid is six possible dots, so each letter is a combination of those dots. You have to feel for what's not there as much as what is."
"That doesn't make any damn sense at all."
"Well, you know where a punch is going before it's thrown sometimes, right?"
"Clearly I don't."
Matt Murdock and Jack Murdock[src]
"Who says I'm even gonna get hit?"
"We're Murdocks, we get hit a lot."
"Yeah, guess we do."
"But we get up, right, Dad? We always get up."
―Jack Murdock and Matt Murdock[src]
"Hey, it's Jack"
"Hey Jack."
"Too late to change it?"
"You can change it."
"Good, all on me. Win by knockout."
"You sure?"
"Yeah. Yeah, I'm sure. Listen, you gotta do this quick. Cash out the second Creel hits the mat. Don't wait."
―Jack Murdock and Ed[src]

Episode 1.06: Ashes, Ashes

"You know, Lexi, you remind me of a friend of mine. His dad was a boxer who got in way over his head and got himself killed. And for a long time, my friend thought his dad abandoned him, too. Until one day, he learned the truth, that his dad was actually killed because he wanted to stop being a criminal. Because he wanted his son to be proud of him."
Jessica Jones[src]
