Mick: Some couples just aren't meant to be together. Take me and Beth. She has a very real boyfriend and, well, after Coraline, I have understandable trust issues. Still, when I see it's Beth calling, I always pick up.
Mick: (voice over) When I was still human, I survived the Battle of the Bulge. Six weeks in a trench in the Ardennes. Coldest winter I ever felt. My buddy lost a foot to frostbite. I thought that was hell. I was wrong.
Beth: So how long can you stay outside? Like how much sun is too much?
Mick: Any is too much.
Beth: You're a delicate flower Mick St. John.
Leni: We have to get you a hospital, this is not just regular dehydration. Something is seriously wrong!
Mick: No hospitals. Just keep trying to get a signal. Call the number I gave you. Ask for Beth. Just talk to her, only Beth.
Leni: Who is she?
Mick: I trust her.
Leni: Hey, is she your girlfriend?
Mick: No. (pause) It's complicated.
Mick: (in reference to Beth) Maybe it was her blood in my veins that made me feel her, the beating of her very-living heart. Or maybe, we've always been connected. Either way, being near me puts her in danger. So it has to stop.
Mick: You're probably wondering how someone like me ends up near death in no star motel hell.
Mick: Blood is life for vamps and humans alike. It warms us and thrills us; helps us heal. But vampires will always be jealous of the living-- like renters versus owners— You can make your own blood. We've got to beg, borrow and work it into the budget.
Mick: (voice over) Vampire survival instincts are simple. If you're dying, you need blood.
Mick: (voice over) When I get thirsty, I start to see blood everywhere. Even the damn tomato juice made me think that maybe I'd found a vamp-friendly vending machine.
Mick: Okay, tell me about your witness.
Josh: This means, you'll do it?
Mick: No, it means, I'll listen.
Josh: Your confidence in me is overwhelming.
Beth: I think I was overcompensating with the dry and factual. I was afraid I'd start babbling about how hot you are.
Beth: So what do you have cooked up for Monday?
Josh: What are you talking about?
Beth: Please. All the late night calls, the cat-that-ate-the-canary smile.
Josh: Maybe, I'm cheating on you.
Beth: Who would cheat ... on this?
(Beth points to her body)
Josh: Good point. (they smile and kiss)
Mick: (seeing a helicopter with missiles following them) You had to piss off an arms dealer, didn't you?
Beth: (offering herself to Mick) You need blood.
Mick: No, not yours! Not like this!
Beth: I want to do this.
Mick: What do you do when the one thing you need to save your life is the one thing that would make life unbearable?
Beth: Being on the hunt with you is kinda fun.
Mick: Yeah, it's a giant thrill ride that never ends. You know, sometimes it does end. With terrible screams and bloodshed.
Beth: Still, we make a good team.
