Miguel and Dexter shopping

West Marine is a location in Season Three of the Showtime series DEXTER.

It’s a sporting goods store where Dexter Morgan and Miguel Prado buy items in preparation for Miguel’s first kill.


After vetting Billy Fleeter, Dexter agrees to teach Miguel how to murder him and get away with it. While shopping for the supplies they need, Dexter puts two life vests into the cart and Miguel asks why they are needed.

Dexter: “We can't exactly load up the cart with axes and machetes, now can we?”
Miguel: “Exactly right."
Dexter: “So, um, have you given any thought as to how you want to do this?”
Miguel: “Mm-hmm. Small caliber gun to the head. Then I walk away. That happens all the time.”
Dexter: “Guns make noise. And they leave evidence behind -- bullets, casings, powder residue. Not to mention the body.”
Miguel: “Okay.”
Dexter: “You don't want to create a crime scene. It's where experts like me gather evidence against you.”
Miguel: “Okay, okay, I get it, I get it. What do you suggest?”

Dexter selects a large knife from a shelf.

Miguel: “Up close and personal.”
Miguel: [as he grabs a coil of rope] “Hey, in case we have to tie anybody up.”

Dexter shakes his head and says, “I'm gonna put together a starter kit for you.”
