Frank Castle (about his wife): We were, uh... we were far from perfect, but... when I remember her, it's like all the shitty stuff, it fades away, you know, it just... When I think about her, she's always got that smile...
Frank Castle: I need to find these bastards that took 'em from me. I gotta kill 'em.
Karen Page: So where does that end, Frank? Because I look at you and... my heart breaks because all I can see is just this endless, echoing loneliness.
Frank Castle: I'm not lonely, Karen.
Karen Page: Bullshit. We are all lonely. I sometimes think that that is all that life is, we're just... We're just fighting not to be alone.
Frank Castle: So what do you want? What should I do? Should I let it go?
Karen Page: No, but I want there to be an after. For you.
David Lieberman: Your Operation Cerberus... doesn't exist. There's no official record. There's no congressional approval. It's totally off the books. You know what that means? They turned you into a hit man, Frank. Now, I don't care if we trust each other or not. I don't wanna be blood brothers. That stuff is for kids in tree houses. But you and me, we want the same thing right now. So work with me.
Frank Castle: One condition.
David Lieberman: Yeah, name it.
Frank Castle: They die. Yeah? Every single one of 'em. No trials. No bullshit. They die.
David Lieberman: Yeah, I can live with that.
Frank Castle (to David): Pain. You can get used to pain, Lieberman. You can adjust to it. You can adjust to pretty much anything. Just as long as there's routine, right? Routine. Human mind, it craves it. Needs it. But if you take that away, that... That's when you start to lose your shit. When you take away day and night and food. No water, no patterns. You know what's crazy, Lieberman? Even though you know what's happening... I'm telling you that it's happening... Even though you know it... rationalizing it won't do shit. People think that torture is pain. It's not pain. It's time. It's time to slowly realize that your life, it's over. It's over, Lieberman. Now all you got is the nightmare.
Karen Page: Hey, when am I gonna see you?
Frank Castle: You want to?
Karen Page: It'd mean you're still alive. Believe it or not, I actually care what happens to you... which makes precisely one of us. Just, uh... be careful.
Frank Castle (to Curt): There was a group of us. We got sheep dipped to CIA. It was... interrogation and assassination. It was... It wasn't war. Not like we knew it. Truth is, Curt... I was past caring. That shit follows you home no matter how hard you try, it follows you home, and Maria, she knew it. She knew it. The kids knew it, the... Sometimes I'd catch 'em, they... They'd be looking at me and they'd have this look. Look at me like they didn't even know who I was.
Curtis Hoyle: Do me a favor, Frank. Don't be a wallowing asshole. Before I have to take this fake leg off and beat you to death with it. Just imagine your tombstone. "Frank Castle lost an ass-kicking contest to a one-legged man." I'd do it.
Frank Castle: Yeah. I'd actually kinda like to see that.
Curtis Hoyle: Anybody that had anything to do with what happened to Maria and the kids are dead. Mission accomplished. And I don't have a problem with that. Hell, if you would've asked me, I woulda helped you do it.
Frank Castle: I know that. I know you would have.
Curtis Hoyle: But that was months ago. Now the only person you're punishing is yourself.
