The Strain Quotes
Quinlan: There are no myth's professor, only exaggerations.
Setrakian: Or hidden truths, such as the Ancients. What did they tell you?
Quinlan: They told me about a mortal who'd succeeded in hunting down and wounding the Master. The dark lord has taken on various forms over the centuries, but always by choice. No one has ever forced him to transform, until now.
Setrakian: He has taken on a new form?
Quinlan: And yet your first victory is a minor one compared to this.
Setrakian: What's that?
Quinlan: You led me to his nesting place.
Quinlan: The Ancients gave me your name, professor Setrakian. I followed you here.
Setrakian: But who are you?
Quinlan: My name is Quinlan. And you and I have something very much in common.
Setrakian: What's that?
Quinlan: We are both hunting the Master.
Setrakian: You know the Ancients?
Fet: Who or what are the Ancients? What the hell is this guy?
Nora: Kelly got close Eph. Setrakian thinks the Master has made her one of the more sentient strigoi.
Eph: Jesus Christ.
Nora: Pretty sure Zack saw her. You need to talk to him.
Eph: Maybe he didn't?
Nora: Don't downplay this Eph. They nearly got us. She's not gonna stop.
Eph: I'm so sorry. I should have been there for Zack. It just seemed so good, like it was all coming together. Then it was all taken away. It was Eldritch Palmer.
The Master: I have been expecting you. Welcome to the new world.
Quinlan: I see you had little time to prepare your new vessel.
The Master: I chose this host for its loyalty. Something you know nothing about.
Quinlan: It lacks... intimidation.
Senator Sertorius: You bleed white yet you tolerate exposure to the sun. You are the half-breed. Birthed of human flesh and demon blood. Possessed of Godlike strength and agility. Why do you not escape?
Quinlan: I'm a student of human instinct and behavior. I find I learn best as their instrument.
Setrakian: What's driving him?
Setrakian: He has all the money and power he ever needs. Why is he doing this? What does he want?
Fitzwilliam: Palmer's been on the precipice of death for 50 years. Some people might make peace with that, but Palmer... he made a bargain instead.
Setrakian: He wants to be one of them.
Fet: Wait, are you saying that he started an apocalypse to become a muncher?
Fitzwilliam: Not just any muncher, an elevated one. He believes he's going to be the Master's partner.
Setrakian: Thank you for your help.
Fitzwilliam: I did what I could. Tell my brother I tried.
Setrakian: I will convey your message.
Fitzwilliam: Please just make this... [swish]
Leigh: He went for it.
Leigh: Long way to go, Chemoral needs to duplicate the science but the door's open. If your product can withstand the scrutiny.
Eph: It can.
Leigh: Then we could have a firm up or down answer in 72 hours.
Robert: Holy shit, what is that?
Eph: See those cysts? I did that. I found a way to kill these things. It's a bio-weapon. It's crude, it needs to be refined but it works.
Robert: What do you need?
Eph: I need to scale it up and I need your access. We need to play politics here. Run it through the labyrinth, except we don't have months we have hours.
Gus: You could quit with the silent treatment bro. I know it's you. Admit it. A'ight, okay, fine. It's just some crazy coincidence. I mean, your name is Angel and you limp on the same knee that he got hurt on.
Angel: Coincidences happen.
Gus: I agree, but you gotta love those Silver Angel movies, right?
Angel: Garbage. Worthless garbage.
Gus: Hey don't insult the man, he's not here to defend himself.
Eph: Shut up. I'm not letting you get in my way again.
Barnes: You think I like the position they put me in? They nearly threw me over a balcony Eph. I can't even sleep. I barely eat.
Eph: Then just let me go. I've got a plan to wipe out all the infected and clean all this up.
Barnes: Well that's great news. I'll let you go.
Nora: I got the morphine.
Feraldo: I've been thinking, maybe I'd rather wait until he turns. It might make it easier to do it.
Nora: I don't know him, but I think he would rather go out as himself.
Feraldo: I used to read to him Goodnight Moon and sing him to sleep.
Nora: When you're ready, just push the plunger in.
Feraldo: I've been asking my people to be okay with this, but I can't even do it.
