Episode 1.01: Into the Ring

Spoken by Karen Page

"I didn't do this! I didn't do this!"
―Karen Page[src]

Dialogue

"Union Allied Construction. I was secretary. Daniel worked downstairs in legal. I didn't know him... very well, but he was always nice, you know. But it's hard to meet people in this city so I asked him if he would have a drink with me."
"You asked him?"
"Like I said he was a nice guy. We met at the Three Roads Bar on 49th street. We had a few drinks. And the next thing that I remember is waking up on the floor of my apartment covered in blood. His blood. Now, I'm not stupid; I know how that sounds. But I am telling you we met at the bar. We had a few drinks. And I don't know what happened after that. It wasn't me. Please..."
―Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]
"I work— worked in the financial department at Union Allied. They're overseeing the bulk of the government contracts for the west-side reconstruction."
"I've seen their signs all over Hell's Kitchen."
"The last two years have transformed the business. There's new owners, new grants, new contracts."
"Yeah, the world watched half of New York get destroyed. That's a lot of sympathy."
"And Union Allied benefited from every dollar of it."
―Karen Page, Foggy Nelson, and Matt Murdock[src]
"Can I ask a personal question?"
"I haven't always been blind."
"I guess that's what everyone wants to know."
"That or, 'How do you comb your hair?'"
"How do you comb your hair?"
"Honestly, you just— You hope for the best."
―Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]

Episode 1.02: Cut Man

Spoken by Karen Page

"I don't see the city anymore. All that I see are it's... dark corners. I look around this room and all that I see are threats."
―Karen Page[src]

Dialogue

"So you wanna talk about it?"
"Let's leave it alone."
"Yeah, no problem. Okay, technically leaving alone is not my strong suit, but—"
"I can't, um... I can't get Danny's blood... outta the carpet. It's like somebody spilled a wine bottle and it just won't... And a man broke into my apartment and tried to kill me. He dented the wall where he bashed my head into it. If that guy in the mask hadn't— hadn't of been there..."
Foggy Nelson and Karen Page[src]

―Karen Page[src]

Episode 1.09: Speak of the Devil

Dialogue

"Mrs. Urich I, I think it's my fault what happened to Ben, I pushed him into a story that he didn't want..."

―Karen Page and Doris Urich[src]
"Now everybody knows what kind of asshole Fisk really is."
"And we are the ones who made it happen."

"Maybe we created him. All of us. The moment that we let Daredevil, or the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, or whatever it is-"
"There's... There's no connection."
"Well, actually, I think it's a pretty straight line, Matt. Daredevil practiced vigilante justice in our backyard and we applauded him for it. I know that I did. And we never stopped to think that maybe his actions could open the door for men like this. Men with guns. Men who think that the law belongs to them."
―Karen Page and Matt Murdock[src]
"And all of these people were were killed by the same man?"
"He's tracking gangs to their home turf and taking them out with military precision. But it doesn't stop there."

Dialogue

"Gotta hand it to Brett."
"I'm glad people like him are looking out for Hell's Kitchen."
"Yeah. And I'm glad someone was looking out for him."
"Press are calling Castle a "cold-blooded psychopath." The D.A.'s going to have a helluva time using his prosecution to turn herself into a hero. It's all working out perfectly. "
"Wow. Way to bring us down..."
"I'm...!"
"Hey Josie, would you mind turning the TV off? It's upsetting some of the regulars. I think we've had enough Punisher for one evening."
"Okay."
"All right?"
"I'll drink to that."
"To Brett. And to a safe Hell's Kitchen."

"I don't know what you're talking about."
"Godspeed, Matt Murdock."
"Hey! Where next?"
"Home. I'm gonna sleep for a week. Someone had the awful idea of doing shots! I think I've had enough excitement for one evening."

Episode 2.11: .380

Spoken about Karen Page

"You call the police, get protective custody, get away from this thing, away from me. Just stay away from me."
Punisher to Karen Page[src]

Dialogue

"Okay, so walk away, go."
"Blacksmith already tried to get me once, I really don't want to give him a second chance."
"He's not gonna get it."
Frank Castle and Karen Page[src]
"You pick it out yourself?"
"Why?"
"People who don't know shit about guns usually go for something shiny. You know, something with a with a fancy grip. There's always the asshole who gets the big hand cannon that kicks like a mule and they're too afraid to use it. But a 380 shows thought."
Frank Castle and Karen Page[src]
"Murdock."
"Umm... Yeah. He's got issues. It's complicated, like most people. Hard person to get to know. I just think that inside he's..."
"You love him, right?"
"You can't know that."
"I'm sorry, can't know what?"
"You can't..."
"Come on. We're in court, all that shit going on it's all over your face. You can't hide that. You love him."
"I might have... feelings for Matt Murdock, but it's just a swirl, it's a lot of things. Like... ingredients. It's not love. He's the kind of man that hurts people. Not like you, but... he damages them. Breaks them."
"Sorry, is that supposed to mean something?"
"So those are the people that you get out of your life."
"Is that right? Look, I might be generally considered out of my skull, so this might not mean much, but this could be the craziest, most batshit thing I've ever heard in my life. People that can hurt you, the ones that can really hurt you, are the ones that are close enough to do it. People that get inside you and... and... and tear you apart, and make you feel like you're never gonna recover. Shit, I'd... I... I would chop my arm off right here, in this restaurant, just to feel that one more time for my wife. My old lady, she didn't just break my heart. She... she'd rip it out, she'd tear it apart, she'd step on that shit, feed it to a dog. I mean she was ruthless. She brought the pain. But she'll never hurt me again. You see, I'll never feel that. You sit here and you're all confused about this thing, but you have it. You have everything. So, hold on to it. Use two hands and never let go. You got it?"
Frank Castle and Karen Page[src]

Episode 2.13: A Cold Day in Hell's Kitchen

Spoken by Karen Page

"What is it, to be a hero? Look in the mirror and you'll know. Look into your own eyes and tell me you are not heroic, that you have not endured, or suffered... or lost the things you care about most. And yet, here you are... a survivor of Hell's Kitchen... the hottest place anyone's ever known. A place where cowards don't last long. So... you must be a hero. We all are. Some more than others, but none of us alone. Some bloody their fists trying to keep the Kitchen safe. Others bloody the streets in the hope they can stop the tide, the crime, the cruelty... the disregard for human life all around them. But this is Hell's Kitchen. Angel or devil, rich or poor, young or old, you live here. You didn't choose this town. It chose you. Because a hero isn't someone who lives above us, keeping us safe. A hero is not a god or an idea. A hero lives here... on the street, among us, with us. Always here but rarely recognized. Look in the mirror and see yourself for what you truly are. You're a New Yorker. You're a hero. This is your Hell's Kitchen. Welcome home."
Karen Page[src]

The Defenders

Episode 1.05: Take Shelter

Dialogue

"Hi."
"Hey. It's after midnight."
"Yeah. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't important."
"You could give me a little more than that."
"It's the Hand. They came for you before, Karen. I won't let that happen to you again."
"I don't believe this..."
"I know. They're back in New York..."
"No, no, it's not them. This - This is how you tell me that you're doing it again? Because that's what you're saying. You're going out as him."
"Uh, no, actually. Uh, well... not yet."
"All right, but you told me you didn't miss it. What am I..."
"I know what I said. We don't have to have this conversation."
"Of course we don't. Just talk to me! Please, Matt! Just... just tell me."
"...I'm doing it again. Because if I don't, people will die. Whatever the Hand is up to, New York is in its crosshairs. I have to do this."
"I know. I don't... Look I don't need your protection, Matt. Whatever it is you're doing - or Daredevil is doing - I'm not a part of it anymore, so..."
"That may be the case. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter if you're part of Daredevil's world or not, because they may be coming after Matt Murdock's too."
"I'm sorry, does that mean they know who you are?"
"I just can't take any chances..."
"Matt, that isn't your call!"
"Can you please just come with me? Just lay low a couple of days. That's all I'm asking. I'm sorry. Thank you."
"Yeah, well don't... I'm not doing this for you. It's just... self-preservation at this point."
"You deserve better, Karen..."
"So do you... "
Matt Murdock and Karen Page[src]
