Vanessa: You did that to his face?
Ethan: Yes.
Vanessa: What are you?

Mr. Lyle: I don't for a moment deny my complicity with that evil woman, but you must believe me when I say that's done. And I am willing to suffer the consequences of my disloyalty to her, which are ruinous.
Victor: And now we're to trust you?
Mr. Lyle: I hope I've demonstrated my allegiance to the people in this room. My shame is my own to live with and I shall.
Vanessa: No one here is above guilt Mr. Lyle. We need every ally for the night ahead.

I'm sorry you feel so unloved. You are a beautiful monster, and there are those who could love you and shall. Life awaits you.


Inspector Rusk: The quarry has been run to his hole. He has lost his anonymity and his freedom of movement. He should know when he is captured.
Ethan: Cornered animals are the most dangerous.
Inspector Rusk: But they are cornered, nonetheless.

Now, let me see your power. Go heal yourself my beloved immortal.


Sembene: I have been much feared and hated in my life. By my people, by yours. These marks, mean I was a slave trader. It is my sin to live with, but in this house I have found kindness among the unkind. So have you.
Ethan: I've not had many friends in my time, but I'm proud to count you among them.

Hecate: You have been given a great power. One day you will use it, and take your foretold place over these mortal animals. You know in your heart I'm speaking the truth, admit it.
Ethan: Yes.
Hecate: You are what you are. And when you're ready, I will serve you best of all.

And now the rest of the tale. So we were cleaved apart; two brothers cast out to two realms. One brother to Earth and the other brother to Hell. And thus will be set in eternal enmity, my brother on Earth to feed on the blood of the living by night and myself in Hell to feed on the souls of the dead. Both in an eternal quest for the mother of evil.

Mr. Lyle

Evelyn: Memory, such a potent force in our lives. All of these Memento Mori for one sobering message; remember that you will die.
Sir Malcolm: What do you want of me?
Evelyn: You see darling, I understand hunting as well. Though I've never been to your beloved Africa, sometimes you tie a lamb to lure a lion don't you? So all I require of you is that you... Baaaa.
Sir Malcolm: Why Ms. Ives?
Evelyn: Because the master desires her.

Inspector Rusk: What did you talk about?
Sir Malcolm: I barely remember.
Inspector Rusk: I spoke to him an hour ago. You asked him about the Spitalfields murders. You were quite insistent that he stop hunting for a man, and start hunting for a beast. Why would you say that?
Sir Malcolm: I don't recall.

Is it a sickness? Or is it something else? Is it a blessing, the purpose of which we can not yet see? I say, this is what it is. For I know you my friend, Ethan Chandler, I see inside you.


She called me her little scorpion and only said my name aloud once... before she was murdered; tied to that tree outside.

Caliban: Is it not this, Ms. Ives? The glory of life surmounts the fear of death. Good Christian's fear Hellfire, so to avoid it they are kind to their fellow man. Good pagans do not have this fear, so they can be who they are. Good or ill, as their nature dictates. We have no fear of God, so we are accountable to no one but each other.
Vanessa: That's a profound responsibility.
