Krista Dumont: Do you know anyone who is really happy?
Dinah Madani: Isn't that what keeps you in business?
Krista Dumont: It's not in our natures. Take the prettiest girl, and she'll say she's too short. Or... the best-looking guy, and he'll say he's too skinny. A genius worries about his physique. A priest questions his faith. A soldier doubts his courage. I think if there is a hell, that's what it would be... an eternity spent facing our own failings. "We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell." And so you force yourself to do a job that is incompatible with your feelings. Billy Russo chases power because he fears that he is worthless and unlovable. Frank Castle, he does terrible things, but he still wants to believe he is good.
Dinah Madani: So what's yours? What's your hell?
Krista Dumont: I believe, despite all evidence to the contrary, that... one day I will free one of you from yours.
Dinah Madani: Castle is the reason that... that Billy can't remember.
Krista Dumont: Castle sounds even worse than Russo.
Dinah Madani: No. No, Castle's a whole other thing. You know what? The truth is I'm jealous of them both. Neither of them give a sh*t. Absolute purity of purpose.
Krista Dumont: You know them both well.
Dinah Madani: Oh, yeah, I've got a real insight. Maybe if you did, you'd be drinking, too.
Dinah Madani: You sold out everything you ever stood for, anyone you ever cared about, and you did it for money and status. Left Frank for dead, covered in the blood of his wife and children. That's who you are.
Billy Russo: No. No...
Dinah Madani: Yeah. And when he found out, he came after you and he made you pay. Now, look me in the eye and tell me something. Am I lying? Frank wanted you to live with it on your face every day. He put all that ugly on the outside where it belongs. And maybe you should just do us all a favor and shoot yourself. Get it over with. Because Frank will come after you, and... he will finish the job.
Dinah Madani: You decide someone deserves to be gone, and, bang, they're gone. No second thoughts, no qualms, no conscience. And then on you go, happy and safe on your... I guess at least borderline psychopathic, merry way.
Frank Castle: Listen, Madani, you're right. I can do it. I could kill him and just walk away. But that doesn't mean it's easy. I can live with it, yeah. I can live with anything. There's no peace up here. (points to his head) There's no happy medium that I'm looking for.
Krista Dumont: My patient's alleged crimes are not my concern. I'm only interested in his health.
Billy Russo: Gotta build the jigsaw. Isn't that right?
Krista Dumont: That's right.
Dinah Madani: What's he talking about?
Krista Dumont: We've been using the metaphor that Billy's injuries turned his memories and identity into a jigsaw puzzle. I'm here to help him solve it.
Frank Castle: What about Russo? What happened?
Rafael Hernandez: Kept him under the knife for 11 hours. He should live, but they have no idea if he'll ever regain significant brain function, or to what degree. He could wake up tomorrow or never. Remember everything, or not even his own name.
Dinah Madani: I hope he does. I hope he remembers everything. So that when I stand in front of him... he knows I played my part.
