"Poetic Injustice" is the second part of the thirteenth episode in the fourth season of Dexter's Laboratory.


Dexter falls in love with a new girl at his school, but he can't win her heart until Dee Dee helps him with poetry.

Why It's A Romantic Love (until it Breaks Up)

  1. The start was very nice, with Dexter falling in love with a girl behind him when noticing that she has a book, too and very long hair and him, Dee Dee and the other students coming in and out of school.
  2. That "in love" look Dexter does at the start and when getting kissed by Mary Weather is very affectionate.
  3. The title card music is serene and beautiful.
  4. Dee Dee is actually helpful here, as she gives Dexter some advice on how to win the love of a woman by writing a poem that expresses his love.
  5. Speaking of which, Dexter reading out the poem about how much he loves Mary Weather is great to watch, along with the montage of Dexter winning his true love.
  6. Watching a bus fly to space when Dexter falls in love is very impressive.
  7. While Dexter insulted Dee Dee when sitting with Mary Weather, it's actually understandable when comparing her actions to the previous & next episodes.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. Mediocre ending: When Dexter "insulted" Dee Dee, she got back at him by writing mean things about Mary Weather - resulting with the bus crashing to the ground, and Mary slapping Dexter to the window.


  • The episode title is a reference to the 1993 film, "Poetic Justice". On top of that, it's also a definition in the dictionary.
