* After Daredevil's [[spoiler: AccidentalMurder]] leaves him acting reckless and putting himself at risk, the Defenders attempt to calm him down by revealing they've all been in that situation and that it's understandable. When that fails to get through to him, Spider-Man approaches him in his apartment. He first reveals that he deliberately didn't read any street signs or look for any landmarks, meaning Matt's identity is safe, then explains that the rest of the superhero community has agreed to put Matt on a temporary retirement until he can get his head on straight. They aren't going to turn him in, they aren't going to challenge him. They just want him to take a break.

-->'''Foggy''': '''I'm not finished.''' I want to live. '''But'''. You're not perfect. Sometimes, you can be a real jerk. Not on purpose. Just sometimes. But no matter what, you are a man of integrity. That is your defining characteristic. You can't see this, but it comes off you so strong that I have watched Avengers be intimidated by it. Be ''inspired'' by it. Your integrity carries a wait you can't ''imagine''. It has ''meaning''.

-->'''Foggy''': Shut up. All I can think about... When I lie here. When I lie here. All that keeps rolling around in my head is a question. '''The''' question. What did ''my'' life mean, Matty? Because I'll tell you this. If Matt Murdock ever ''compromises'' his integrity thanks to ''me''... then the answer is, "my life meant nothing."

-->'''Foggy''': Wow. Matt, that's--
-->'''Matt''': It doesn't have to be that, Foggy. I can bide my time instead. I can make the serpents think I'm their puppet while we strategize long-term.
-->'''Foggy''': No. I like this. It'll work?
-->'''Matt''': I'd bet my life on it.
