* HeyItsThatGuy:
** [[Film/TheWarriors Ajax]] became a cop after he got busted. Whoda thunk it?
** Look, Dexter's new nanny (on season 5) is [[TheTudors Queen Catherine of Aragon]].
** Not to mention [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Tasha Yar]] as Harry's nurse.
** Sci-Fi nerds will recognize [[StarWars Senator Bail Organa]] as Dexter's new best friend.
** And [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 Crashdown]] as creepy taxidermist Neil Perry.
** Miguel Prado really should consider running for president. He played Matthew Santos in ''Series/TheWestWing''.
** Wait a second... Is that [[Series/SixFeetUnder David Fisher]]? [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything And he's dealing with dead people and having conversations with his dead father!]]
** When did [[Film/WhiteChicks Lisa]] become a cop?
** Dexter's dating (and later marries) [[Series/{{Angel}} Darla]].
** Also in Season 1, one of Dexter's targets is Sam Merlotte from Series/TrueBlood.
** Look, Rita's wife-beating coke-addled ex-husband is [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Lucifer]]! Huh, who knew? He really turned nasty once he left [[Series/{{Lost}} that island]].
** [[Series/StargateSG1 Bra'tac]] killed [[spoiler: Dexter's mother]]... no! it was [[TheTerminator Enrique!]]
** And [[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun Dick Solomon]] [[spoiler: killed his wife]].
** The FBI-Agent Lundy is [[Series/CriminalMinds Frank]] and in the German dub is voiced by the same voice-actor as [[Series/CriminalMinds Gideon]]. Quite confusing when watched side by side.
** Dexter is related to [[Film/NationalTreasure John Wilkes Booth]] and [[Film/TheExorcismOfEmilyRose Emily Rose]].
** Franchise/RoboCop plays a DirtyCop who is investigating Dexter. [[Film/RoboCop1987 Dick Jones]] is a serial killer.
** [[Series/BandOfBrothers Malarkey]] is [[spoiler:one of Lumen's rapists]].
** [[Series/EliStone A lawyer with an aneurysm]] is the BigBad of season 5.
** [[Series/{{Everwood}} Colin Hart]] causes a lot of trouble as a drug dealer in season three.
** Film/{{May}} is [[spoiler:the first victim of the ring of rapists organized by Jordan Chase]], and is still in some sort of [[MoreThanMindControl really messed-up]] relationship with him.
** Poor [[Series/{{Popular}} Mary Cherry]]; she married a rapist who was murdered by Dexter as shown in the penultimate episode of season five.
** Hey, it's the bad guy from ''Film/TheAdventuresOfBuckarooBanzaiAcrossThe8thDimension''! And that's Buckaroo Banzai!
** Nicky seems to have stopped hanging out with [[Film/TheBourneSeries Jason Bourne]] and changed her name to Lumen.
** [[Series/{{Elementary}} Sherlock]] is now SerialKiller Jordan Chase.
** Vince's intern is [[Series/{{Heroes}} Daphne Millbrook]].
** [[Series/GossipGirl Evil Uncle Jack]] is a dirty cop who loves Deb! Well that explains how he can afford the Cadillac...
** Season 7 Mafiya Don baddie is [[Series/{{Rome}} Titus Pullo]]! Kicking latin asses while outnumbered since 52 BC!
** Holy shit, [[ThePunisher Frank Castle]] in a story about a vigilante who tracks down and murders bad guys. And HE's one of the bad guys!
** [[Series/{{Heroes}} Isaac Mendez]]? What are you doing in Miami?
** Schizoid [[Series/UnhappilyEverAfter Jack Malloy]] left behind his talking puppet and is now a police chief.
** [[Series/{{Dollhouse}} Victor]]'s in this show? His name is Viktor?
** [[Franchise/MassEffect Miranda Lawson]] is Dexter's new girlfriend.
*** [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Bobby Singer]] is her father.
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the Japanese dub, Dexter is, ironically, [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure J.Geil in the TV series]], another SerialKiller, except J.Geil is the '''opposite''' of Dexter in every aspect.

** Michael C. Hall previously played a funeral home director on ''Series/SixFeetUnder.'' So when Dexter goes to a funeral home in the season 5 premiere, and the roles are reversed, the show makes the most of it, from a set that looks like the Fisher funeral home to the director offering tissues.

Added DiffLines:

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome : Season 5's nanny, who was part of a minor subplot of Dexter trying to balance work, his obsession, and being father to a toddler. She's last seen at Harrison's birthday party. In Season 6, Batista's sister has taken the job.
