You've got the wrong one! It's me you should be hitting! It was me, Matt! I killed Dad!"
~ Carl confesses to murdering his father on Christmas Day; revealing himself as the culprit behind the events of the "Who Killed Tom King" storyline in the process
"I am. Shall I tell you why? A few years ago, I sat down with our Jimmy after Matthew died and I told him I thought I was cursed. But I'm not. I'm charmed. Bad things happen to people around me and I walk away untouched and get away with it! I've done it before. And I'm goanna do it again to you, this time, and there is nothing you can do to stop me! And I'll tell you why that is, as well, shall I?! Because I'm indestructible!"
