HBO's True Blood took the cable networks by storm with its first season, far surpassing the network and audiences' expectations for the show.
During the first season we saw Bill and Sookie fall in love as they attempted to solve the mystery of the serial killings of women around Bon Temps, while trying to clear Sookie's brother, Jason's name.
Along the way, we were treated to some great True Blood quotes that poked fun at a lot of the Vampire conventions we come to know and expect.
Here's just some of our favorite quotes from the incredible first season.
Tara [tending bar]: Uh-oh do... do not snap at me. I have a name. And that name is Tara. Isn't that funny a black girl being named after a plantation. No I don't think it's funny at all. In fact it really pisses me off that my momma was either stupid or just plain mean. Which is why you better be nice if you plan on getting a drink tonight.

Bill: Can I ask you a personal question?
Sookie: Bill, you were just licking blood outta my head. I don't think it gets much more personal than that | permalink
Sam: Sookie, you have no future with a vampire!
Sookie: They don't die. I've got nothing but a future with one | permalink
Sookie: Wait a minute. I thought you're supposed to be invisible in the mirror.
Bill: We started many of the mysteries about ourselves centuries ago.
Sookie: What about holy water?
Bill: It's just water.
Bill: It's irritating. That's pretty much it. | permalink
Sookie: I've been admiring your necklace all day.
Amy: Oh, thanks. It's a lariat. I made it.
Sookie: You make jewelry?
Amy: Easy way to earn extra money. I can make you one if you want.
Sookie: Thanks, but I don't think my boyfriend much likes silver | permalink
Sam [about Bill]: Can't you see what he's like? How can you even think about being with him?
Sookie: Sam, my living room is wrecked! I've got a killer, a vampire and a shapeshifter on my plate. Right about now I'm not thinkin' about being with anybody! | permalink
