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.
Marion James: The country owes you a debt it can never repay. And for that, I am sorry.
Frank Castle: What are you sorry for? Is it the debt or is it the pass? What is this, a payoff? You want me to keep my mouth shut?
Marion James: Pretty much. We've redirected the narrative for recent events. Lewis Wilson and Russo are the only suspects anyone needs right now.
Rafael Hernandez: You're officially still at large... but we wiped your prints and DNA from the criminal justice system and replaced them with those of a dead man. We've done what we can to give you your life back. Pete Castiglione is a free man.
Marion James: You were betrayed. Some kind of justice was done, and we hope that's enough for you.
Billy Russo: Kill me. Do it!
Frank Castle: I'm not gonna let you die today.
Billy Russo: Please.
Frank Castle: Dying's easy. You're gonna learn about pain. You're gonna learn about loss. Every morning... I look for 'em, Bill. I look for 'em... but then I remember. It's gonna be the same for you. When you look at your ugly, mangled face, you're gonna remember what you did. You'll remember, Bill. You're gonna remember me!
David Lieberman: Hey! Hey! Look at me. Hey, Frank! Hey! I betrayed you, okay? Listen to me, I betrayed you. I brought them here. I brought them here, okay? Call me a piece of sh*t. Come on. Call me an a**hole. Come on. Call me a son of a b*tch. Come on. Come on! Call me a piece of sh*t! Let's go! My friend is dying... Come on, please, please. Please, please. (Frank opens his eyes) There you go. Yes! Yeah, that's right, you scary, beautiful man! That's right! Yeah. I got you. I got you.
Frank Castle: Home.
Frank Castle: I wish... I wish I could see your face...
Billy Russo: What are you talking about?
Frank Castle: When you realize...
Billy Russo: Realize what, Frankie?
Frank Castle: That you're done. You lost everything. Everything you give a sh*t about is gone. Gone.
Billy Russo: This isn't my gun, Frank. I was never here. (Police gets there)
Maria Castle: This is the hardest part. You're back but you're not really here. More and more of you stays there. Where's home, Frank?
Frank Castle: Stop it. I'm just...
Maria Castle: Is it here or is it there? I wanna hear you say it.
Frank Castle: It's here. It's with you, always. You know that.
Maria Castle: I don't know that.
Frank Castle: It was always just the clothes and cars and women with you. It's the only thing that ever mattered.
Billy Russo: It's what those things represent, Frank.
Frank Castle: What's that?
Billy Russo: How far I've come. It's about... who I see when I look in the mirror. I know who you see. You see a man who lost. Lost his family, lost his faith. About to lose his life. That ain't never gonna be me.
Frank Castle: No? You're wrong, Bill. You already lost. You lost your honor. The second you took that money from Rawlins... you became everything you hate.
Frank Castle: I'm gonna kill you, Bill. I'm gonna watch you die.
Billy Russo: Oh, man. You are a... trip. You know that? You really think that, huh? You still think that you get to kill us? That you get to win? You don't get to win, Frank. It's over. You have one choice left, and that's how to die. That's all I can give you, man.
David Lieberman: That skull? That's a memento mori. It's Latin for, "Remember, you will die." In Rome, victorious generals would return from war, and so they didn't get blinded by glory, they'd have a slave who would say, "Remember, you're only human. You are gonna die."
Frank Castle: Well, that sounds good to me.
David Lieberman: Well, it's meant as an admonition to value your life, to live it well.
(David and Frank are listening to a radio interview of Karen and a senator about gun control)
Senator: Guns are a toxin in our society. In the wrong hands, they wreak terrible results. It's barely a year since this city was terrorized by the Punisher.
Karen Page: You know, uh, that's hardly the same thing. Frank Castle killed murderers and drug dealers.
Senator: But where's the line, Karen? Frank Castle decided he knew better than the law and was tried for killing 37 people.
Karen Page: Frank Castle's not a terrorist.
David Lieberman: Thirty-seven?
Frank Castle: That they know about.
Radio host: Castle was a hero to many who felt that he was doing what cops failed to do.
Frank Castle: You're probably gonna wanna punch me in the mouth for saying this, but... things are gonna get better for you.
Sarah Lieberman: Have they gotten better for you?
Frank Castle: For me? Yeah. Yeah, look, I'm alone. I've been alone so long, I... I like it. You know, I hide in it. One thing I know is that the only way out... is to find something that you care about. Those kids, they might drive you crazy. They might... They might make you completely batsh*t, but... they're the reason you're gonna get through this.
Sarah Lieberman: Have you found something to do that for you?
Frank Castle: Uh... maybe. Maybe.
