You'll understand I find it difficult to accept, I'm the object of an eternal satanic quest that so far's only demonstrated in something that's half poetry half gibberish. I'm sorry, no.

Vanessa: So your second cousin Lily is coming to visit you?
Victor: Yes, that's it entirely yes.
Vanessa: And what are we doing here?
Victor: Yes of course, being a country girl I thought I might buy her a dress or two so she'll fit in.
Vanessa: And you've never shopped for women's clothing before?
Victor: In a nutshell, yes.
Vanessa: Then I shall be delighted to assist you.

Sir Malcolm: Is it the story of Lucifer then? The angel cast out by God?
Mr. Lyle: Time will tell.
Ethan: How could this one monk know all these languages?
Vanessa: He didn't, the demon did.

The Cut-Wife: Monsters all, are we not?
Vanessa: Some perhaps more than others.
The Cut-Wife: Is that what you feel?
Vanessa: Yes.
The Cut-Wife: Then it will be true, as long as you feel it so.

We must prepare for battle. When it comes, it comes fully and to the end.

The Cut-Wife

When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone. They will hunt you until the end of days. Be true.

The Cut-Wife

I felt you every step across the moor. They felt you too. They'll be here soon. I felt you walking to my door. Felt you standing there. By the pricking of my thumbs something wicked this way comes.

The Cut-Wife

I am like no others. That's why I'm here.

Vanessa

You thought me a fraud at first; albeit a terribly good one. A theatrical spiritualist beyond compare, n'est-ce pas. But then the occultist dabbler found himself amongst the real thing.

Victor: And this? Creating another sin?
Caliban: Atoning for your first. All the love and companionship you denied me, visit upon her. She is our future, creator; tread carefully.

Now, I needn't remind you of the consequences of disloyalty.. Need I? All those photographs, so indiscreet.

Evelyn Poole

In the eleventh century, a carthusian monk known to us only as Brother Gregory, began to lose his mind. He said he was possessed by a demon. Perhaps the father of all demons, the fallen angel himself. In any event, this demon spoke to him in the Verbis Diablo.

When Lucifer fell, he did not fall alone. They will hunt you until the end of days. Be true.

The Cut-Wife

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.
