Vince and Angel join Quinn, while Dexter looks to the dock. Oh, look who is driving up. It's Miguel, driven by Ramon. Dexter wonders if Ramon is his designated driver (that's like asking John Goodman to be your calorie counter) or bodyguard. He says that he will find out later. I wonder how he'll find that out? Right now, he VO's that it's time for him to put on his party face, which he does. He sits in the middle of a room while the guys around him are getting lap dances and he drinks champagne in slow motion. He VO's that he's heard that bachelor parties aren't really about the groom, rather it's about all of the other guys. As he and Miguel look at each other with awkwardness, Dex VO's that he is planning for his own big day, the day he kills Miguel. One of the things I found interesting was that, when Dexter decides that he's killing Miguel, he looked like he was driven by a sense of duty. Now, I know he's got his Code and all that, but the Code is there to control his natural impulses to just kill lots of people, right? So, don't you think he would have been a little more like "I get to kill Miguel!" rather than "Miguel needs to die?" Just a thought there.
Miguel calls for the music to be turned down. He's going to give a toast and he tells the partygoers to "put those packages away." That's possibly simultaneously the dorkiest and grossest way you could express that wish. Maybe he means boobs. Miguel says that he's going to say a few words about Dexter, but will keep them G-rated, as he is running for office. Dexter suggests via VO that Miguel "run fast." Miguel says that Dex is a tough guy to get to know and, while smart, sometimes doesn't have the "good sense God gave little chickens." Dexter laughs affably with the rest of the crowd. He makes fun of the fact that Dexter brings donuts to work to make friends. He says he's actually giving them diabetes and clogged arteries and might as well "stab a pal in the ventricle." He makes a taunting stabbing motion into his chest when he says that last part. Then, he says a few words about friendship. He says friends are always honest with each other. They can look past the differences that they have. When they have a conflict, friends forgive each other -- a true friend knows when to bury the hatchet. Friendship is a sacred bond built on trust. All the while he's saying this, he's moving closer to Dexter. There seems to be a lot of tension in the room. Then, he tells Dexter that he has learned so much from him...about trust. Heh, he keeps doing that! It's cheers to Dexter and everybody goes back to partying. Dexter raises his bottle of champagne to Miguel with a smile on his face that, were Miguel a little more self-aware, should have scared the shit out of him.
