  • Quotes

    • Magister: Trouble abounds in your fair state.
      Eric: Tell me.
      : It would seem your idyllic little home is competing to become the V capital of the world.
      : Can you believe it? I am so embarrassed. Naturally I told the Magister that you were the only vampire in my kingdom that I could trust with this.
      : Any thing I can do to be of service.
      Magister: Our blood is sacred. Wasting it on any thing but procreation is blasphemy. Sophie-Anne: Madness!
      : Blasphemy.
      : Have you noticed an uptick is users in your neck of the woods? Maybe even here in your club?
      Eric: I haven't, no.
      : See that surprises me. Because every other sheriff to whom I have spoken to has. The amounts are so great in fact, we can only assume a vampire is responsible.
      Sophie-Anne: An act of self loathing. So shameful that who ever is responsible should fall on his own stake.
      Eric: Respectfully, Magister. I'm not sure I follow your logic.
      Magister: If your average run-of-the-mill drainers were behind this, it would stand to reason that said drainers would need vampires to drain, which means there would be missing vampires and plenty of them... How many vampires have gone missing in your area?
      Eric: None, Magister.
      : So now do you follow my logic?
      Eric: I do and I will look into the matter.
      : Good and I will expect results.

    • Andy: So conscience off. Dick on. And everything's gonna be alright.
      Say it with me. Conscience off!
      Jason: (sigh) Conscience off.
      Dick what?
      Dick on.
      And everything...
      ...'s gonna be alright.

    • Jason: God, I killed a man!
      Andy: No, Stackhouse. I killed him! That's what I just told Bud and that's what both of us have to stick to, 'cause there's holes in our stories. Big gaping ones!
      Jason: Like?
      Andy: Like if he was really all up in my face threatening me with a knife, how come the gun that killed him was fired from over twenty feet away!?
      Jason: Well shit, then. Why'd you tell a story with holes in it? We gotta go back and tell him the truth.
      Andy: You tell anybody anything, we're both gonna spend the rest of our lives in jail!

    • Bill: (to his captors) If you have any kind of orders to keep me alive, you are about to fail. At the rate you're drainin' me, I will die!

    • Sookie: I'm in no mood for lesbian weirdness tonight Pam.

    • Pam: Now, why'd you have to go kill that maenad? She was a terrific decorator.

    • Pam: I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago.
