Frank Castle: I need to find these b*stards 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: Bullsh*t. 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 bullsh*t. 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 sh*t. 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 sh*t. 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.
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 sh*t 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: 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.
