  • Trivia

    • Goof: Mick tells Beth that he gets most of his blood from the blood bank. In the first episode Mick says he gets his blood from his contact in the coroner's office.

  • Quotes

    • Mick: (voice over) What's it like to turn into a vampire? As if there were some way to describe it. What do you do when your whole world changes in the blink of an eye? When suddenly, all the rules change.

    • Mick: A newly turned vampire is like a feral kitten, if you don't socialize it within the first few days, it will never be able to interact with humans.

    • Mick: That goes against every rule we have. A sire has to be responsible for whoever they turn, to help them through the transition.

    • (After Mick captures the vampire)
      Beth: Should we call the police?
      Mick: Suggestions like that are why you shouldn't be here.

    • The Cleaner: Mr. Sloppy and Mr. Stupid over there got a little carried away - offed their midnight snack.
      (gestures to two vampires and the clean-up who are carrying a headless body)
      Mick: These two?
      The Cleaner: Accidents happen. Everyone feels bad, but at least they called for clean up.

    • Josef: (talking about the rogue vampire) Well, the blood lust can be pretty heavy when you're first turned. You can really lose it. I know I did. Damn, those were good times!

    • (Talking to Mick about Coraline)
      Josef: You can't change the past, and you can't let it stop you from going forward.

    • Mick: You wanna know how I became a vampire?
      Beth: Yes.
      Mick: Okay. I told you I was married, right? Well, she was a vampire. I didn't know. And on our wedding night she turned me. I went to bed a happily married man and I woke up a monster.

    • Beth: Were you married?
      Mick: Once.
      Beth: What happened?
      Mick: She died.
      Beth: Did you try and turn her into a ...
      Mick: She's dead. Period.
      Beth: Okay. Sorry.
      Mick: You're not. Trust me.

    • Josef: The incinerator?! Damn. Remind me to never piss you off.
      Mick: I didn't have a choice.
      Josef: Well, like I'm judging you. I would have done the same thing. Except, I would have enjoyed it more.

    • Beth: Can you fly?
      Mick: Just like Superman.
      Beth: Really?
      Mick: No.

    • Mick: I need you to use your police contacts to see if anybody has filed any kind of reports in the last couple of days.
      Beth: You're a private investigator. You don't have any contacts in the department?
      Mick: It takes time to develop a contact. Years. People age. I don't. Cops especially tend to pick up on those kind of details.

    • Beth: I'll go through the Wire reports. See if the cause of death matches any other recent murder victims.
      Mick: Beth ...
      Beth: And will you ask the other vampires if they know anything?
      Mick: There's not like a big club house where we all hang out.

    • Beth: Word is something slashed him open and drained all his blood out.
      Mick: Something? What, as in something like me?
      Beth: I didn't say that.
      Mick: Whatever did this is nothing like me.

    • Mick: What have you done to me?
      Coraline: Don't be scared. It's my wedding gift. I freed you, I freed you from death.
      Mick: Tell me what you did to me?
      Coraline: I joined us, forever.

    • Mick: Where were you coming from?
      Gerald Stovsky: The Empress Pavilion, I love their pork buns.
      Mick: But we don't eat.
      Gerald Stovsky: I know, but I sure used to love those buns.
      Mick: Anyway, last night, after your pork bun, what did you eat, and by what I mean who?

    • (Mick and Beth whispering)
      Mick: And wait in the car means?
      Beth: Yeah, cause that worked out so well last time.
