A blind lawyer by day, vigilante by night. Matt Murdock fights the crime of New York as Daredevil.
Leland Owlsley: Heroes and their consequences are why we have our current opportunities.
[debating whether to take Karen Page as their first client]
Foggy: All right, I'm just gonna say this once and we can move on. You don't necessarily show the best judgment when beautiful women are involved.
Matt: How would I even know if she's a beautiful woman?
Foggy: I don't know. It's kinda spooky, actually. But if there's a stunning woman with questionable character in the room, Matt Murdock's gonna find her and Foggy Nelson is gonna suffer.
[Matt and Foggy show up at an interrogation room where Karen is being held for questioning]
Karen Page: Who the hell are you guys?
Matt: I'm Matt. He's Foggy. [Foggy smiles and nods]
Karen: Who sent you?
Matt: No one sent us.
Karen: So…what? You're a couple of good Samaritans? Today's just my lucky day?
Foggy: [shrugs] I…bribed the desk sergeant with a box of cigars. For his mom.
Matt: Our practice is relatively young, Ms. Page, and we are aggressively pursuing new clientele. [to Foggy] Stop giving Bess cigars.
Foggy: She likes to smoke, man. It's a free country.
Karen: How long have you been practicing law?
Matt: What time is it?
Foggy: It's 12:22 AM.
Matt: About seven hours.
Foggy: Well, if you go from when we passed the bar…
Matt: I was going from when we got our own desks.
Foggy: Oh, then, yeah. Seven hours.
[first scene of the series: Matt Murdock goes to confession]
Matt Murdock: Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It's been, uh…it's been too long since my last confession. My dad, he used to come to this church back when I was a kid. He was a fighter. Old school. Boxer. Lost more than he won. Had a 24-31 record before he, uh… But he could take a punch. Jesus, he could take a punch.
Father Lantom: Language.
Matt: Sorry, Father. Yeah… Guys he went up against used to say it was like hitting oak. And nights when he was outmatched, my dad's strategy was to let 'em hit him 'til they broke their hands. Never got knocked out, my dad. Knocked down, sure, but he, uh, always got back up. He was always on his feet when he lost. Every now and then, though, uh… Every now and then, he'd get hit and something inside him would snap. My grandmother…She was the real Catholic. Fear of God ran deep. You'd have liked her. She used to say, "Be careful of the Murdock boys. They got the devil in 'em." And you'd see it sometimes in the ring. His eyes would go dead… and he'd start walking forward real slow, hands at his sides like he wasn't afraid of anything. And the other guy, he'd see that look, and he'd try to get away from him. Nah. My dad, he'd catch him and trap him in a corner. Let the devil out. Yeah. Now, I didn't understand it, you know? What he was feeling deep inside, I didn't understand it. Not back then.
Lantom: But you understand it now? Perhaps this would be easier if you tell me what you've done.
Matt: I'm not seeking penance for what I've done, Father. I'm asking forgiveness…for what I'm about to do.
Lantom: That's not how this works. What exactly are you about to do?
[Matt doesn't respond]
Susan Harris: [telling Foggy about the future offices Nelson and Murdock] You've got a reception area, a conference room and two offices. [Matt enters behind them] Corner suite has a view of the Hudson, you can flip a coin with your partner for it.
Matt: Uh, he can have the view.
Susan: [turns, realizes Matt is blind] I'm so sorry. I didn't…
Matt: [smiles] Of course not.
Susan: Susan Harris, Midtown Property Solution. [sticks her hand out]
Matt: Matt Murdock. [Susan remembers he can't see her hand and pulls it back, curtsying awkwardly]
Foggy Nelson: She just curtsied. It was adorable.
