- It's not what you are, it's who you are.
- Oh, I'm not a vampire. I'm not a Vampeneze. I'm... an aficionado.
- [As Crepsley approaches the theater] Let him in, gentlemen! I want to see this play out.
- [Interrupting Darren and Steve as they fight] That's enough, boys.
- If you kill your family, I'll let the freak go! Wait... my bad, it's backwards. If you kill the freak, I'll let your family live!
- [Introducing himself at the show] Thank you ladies and gentlemen. I am so excited to be here in an anonymous small town that used to have character but is now just a bland suburb filled with chain stores and surrounded by slum. [Awkward silence in the audience] It really is a pleasure to be here. And I am SO honoured that bla bla bla and so on and so forth and excetera adnosium.
- Now boys, vampires don't exist, but if one did, and he thought someone knew, he might smother them in their sleep.
- [After Darren enters his room and turns on the light] Nice room. Some excellent reading material you have here. Thought this was on the internet now.
- [When Crepsley asks why the Vampeneze would go after him before Purl] Well, because I'm the toughest and they'll save me for last.
- Mr. Tall: [Whisper kind of voice] Are you boys 21? Are you 21?... Say yes!
- Darren Shan: Yeah.
- Steve: Yes.
- Mr. Tall: [Same whisper voice] Good, you don't have a tendency towards panic, sudden cardiac arrest, or crippling anxiety do you?... Say no!
- Darren Shan: No.
- Steve: Nope. [shakes head]
- Mr. Tall: Good, go right in, the show is about to start.
- Larten Crepsley: Look. If you become a vampire, you have to leave your family, all your friends; it's deeply depressing. Trust me. Now get out of here!
- [Steve is silent for a few moments]
- Steve: I haven't seen my dad in years. My mom's drunk all the time. I absolutely hate my life! This is what I was meant for.
- Steve: What, you're saying I have... bad blood? I'm never gonna forget this. One day, I will hunt you down-
- Larten Crepsley: You? You're in no position to threaten me. I could kill you tonight- I could knock you out, and lay you in front of a bus, and no one would EVER know!
- Gavner Purl: Easy, save it for the enemy! He's just an idiot kid! [Quietly, looking at Steve] Who should be leaving, right now, while he still can.
[Darren has sounded an alarm in the hospital and is holding his hands up in the form of a cross, trying to force Crepsley to leave]
- Darren Shan: Stay back!
- Larten Crepsley: You have no idea how ridiculous you look right now.
[Just after Crepsley has turned Darren into a vampire]
- Darren Shan: So... do I turn into a bat?
- Larten Crepsley: No! No! That is bullshit.
- Darren Shan: Life isn't pointless.
- Larten Crepsley: Tell me that after two hundred years of it, kid.
