Season 1 Episodes[edit]

[1.01] Witchbottle[edit]

Lisa: You don't travel much, do you?
Dracula: I can travel. This entire structure is a traveling machine.
Lisa: But, you don't. Do you?

Dracula: [to Lisa] I think I might like you.

The Bishop: I should minister to the Archbishop. I fear he's not long for this world, to be honest.
Mayor: Off to heaven with him, eh? I suppose that's the ultimate goal for you priests, serving God in His true house and all that.
The Bishop: It holds little appeal for me, to be honest.
Mayor: Really?
The Bishop: There's so much left to be done on earth. Wallachia could be God's own country had I but time to burn out all the evil that hides here.

[Dracula has just given Wallachia one year to make amends for sentencing his wife Lisa to death for witchcraft.]
Dracula: One year. It will take me one year to summon an army from the guts of Hell itself!
[A set of heavy doors open and Alucard appears.]
Alucard: No.
Dracula: What do you mean, no? That woman was the only reason on earth for me to tolerate human life!
Alucard: Then find the one who did the deed. If you loose an army of the night on Wallachia, you cannot undo it, and many thousands of people just as innocent as her will suffer and die.
Dracula: There are no innocents! Not anymore! Any one of them could have stood up and said, "No, we won't behave like animals anymore."
Alucard: I won't let you do it. I grieve with you, but I won't let you commit genocide.
[Dracula growls and attacks Alucard.]

Arch-Bishop: For twenty years now have I served you and God as the Arch-Bishop to Târgoviște Cathedral. Yet never before have I felt the love of God shine so upon this great city. A little more than one year ago, many of us suffered a vision during the God-willed punishment of a witch in our midst. The Devil himself came to us and threatened us with doom in one year! And yet, here we are. The Devil lied! Why should we be surprised?
[Clouds begin to cover the sun... ]
Arch-Bishop: Do we not know the Devil for a liar? Do we not know his works to be illusions? Of course we do! Illusions and falsehoods hold no fear for us, for we are the righteous of Târgoviște, living as if cradled in the love of God!
[... and blood rains from the sky. As people scream, the cathedral's windows explode, raining huge shards that impale the Arch-Bishop and his canons, and Dracula's face appears in the sky.]
Dracula: One year. I gave you one year to make your peace with your God. And what do you do? Celebrate the day you killed my wife. One year I gave you, while I assembled my armies. And now I bring your death. You had your chance.

Dracula: Kill everything you see. Kill them all. And once Târgoviște has been made into a graveyard for my love, go forth into the country. Go now. Go to all the cities of Wallachia. Arges, Severin, Gresit, Chilia, Enisara! Go now and kill! Kill for my love. Kill for the only true love I ever knew. Kill for the endless lifetime of hate before me.

[1.02] Necropolis[edit]

[During a bar fight, Trevor gets kicked in the groin - again.]
Trevor: [groaning] Would you please leave my testicles alone?

Trevor: I'm Trevor fucking Belmont, and I've never lost a fight to man nor fucking beast! [gets knocked down by Kob, who raises a chair over his head] Oh, shit...

[Trevor stumbles out of the tavern.]
Trevor: Oh, Christ... [falls to his knees and vomits] I hope you all bleed out... through your arses! Every last rat-bastard of you...

[A priest raises a cross to strike the Elder.]
The Elder: Will killing an old man make you less afraid of the dark?
Priest: I don't know. Maybe it'll just make me feel better.
[Trevor lashes out with his whip. The cross lands in the dirt, along with the priest's index finger.]
Trevor: Oh, hell. I'm sorry, I was trying to snatch the stave out of your hand. How's your finger?
Priest: [through clenched teeth] What fucking finger?!

Priest: Kill the bastard!
Trevor: Look, I don't like priests at the best of times. I mean, I really, really don't like priests. If you leave now, we'll say no more about it.
Priest: Kill him now!
Trevor: Last warning, this'll get nasty...

The Elder: There were speakers in Targoviste last year. The Church burned Dracula's wife at the stake as a witch.
Trevor: Shit...
The Elder: That is indeed one way of putting it.

[1.03] Labyrinth[edit]

Trevor: Stone-eyed Cyclops, right out of the family bestiary... God shits in my dinner once again.

Sypha Belnades: What happened?
Trevor: You walked into a Cyclops. Turns you to stone with its eye, then feeds on your terror while you're trapped in your own body.
Sypha Belnades: Did... did you climb on me?
Trevor: Mmm, a bit.
Sypha Belnades: That was rude!

Trevor: Right, I'll come back later. See if you can find some beer. [leaves]
Sypha Belnades: I could pee in a bucket and tell him it's beer.
The Elder: Sypha, he saved your life!
Sypha Belnades: He's rude!

Trevor Belmont: You know...
Priest: Silence! Look at you. You stink, you can barely keep your eyes open. What do you hope to achieve against us?
Trevor Belmont: [smiles] Absolutely nothing.
Priest: So you're going to die for nothing? For people you don't know?
Trevor Belmont: I don't know any of you. But that doesn't matter, does it? My family - the family you demonized and excommunicated - has fought and died through generations for this country. We do this thing for Wallachia and her people. We don't have to know you all. We do it anyway. And it's not the dying that frightens us. It's never having stood up and fought for you. I am Trevor Belmont, of the House of Belmont, and dying has never frightened me.
Priest: [draws a dagger] Good.

[1.04] Monument[edit]

[Demons enter Gresit's cathedral.]
Bishop: You cannot enter the house of God.
Blue Fangs: God is not here. This is an empty box.
Bishop: God is in all His churches.
Blue Fangs: Your God's love is not unconditional. He does not love us. And He does not love you.
Bishop: I have done His bidding. My life's work is in His name.
Blue Fangs: Your life's work makes Him puke.
Bishop: I am the Bishop of Gresit!
Blue Fangs: Your God knows that we wouldn't be here without you. This is all your fault, isn't it?
Bishop: [trembling] SHE WAS A WITCH!
Blue Fangs: Lies? In your house of God? No wonder He has abandoned you. But we love you.
Bishop: What?!
Blue Fangs: We love you. We couldn't be here without you. [seizes the Bishop by the shoulders and opens its jaws] Let me... kiss you.

Trevor Belmont: Stone the fuck up.

[When Trevor locks swords with Alucard, he brings up his leg and knees Alucard in the groin.]
Alucard: [no reaction] Please. This isn't a bar fight, have some class.

Alucard: Do you have a God to put a last prayer to, Belmont?
Trevor Belmont: Yeah. "Dear God, please don't let the vampire's guts ruin my good tunic."
Alucard: What...?
[Trevor slips a knife into his chest, just short of his heart]
Alucard: I can still rip your throat out.
Trevor Belmont: You can. But it won't stop me staking you.
Alucard: But you will still die.
Trevor Belmont: But I don't care. Killing you was the point. Living through it was just a luxury.
[Alucard laughs. Behind him, Sypha ignites flame between her fingers.]
Sypha Belnades: I will incinerate you before your fangs touch that man's throat.
Alucard: I thought I was your legendary savior.
Sypha Belnades: So did I. But he saved my life.
Alucard: You're a Speaker magician.
Sypha Belnades: Yes, and his goal is mine: to stand up for the people.

Alucard: I am Adrian Tepes, known to the Wallachians as Alucard, son of Vlad, Dracula Tepes.

Alucard: I need a hunter and a scholar. I need their help to save Wallachia, perhaps the world, and defeat my father.
Trevor Belmont: Why?
Alucard: [pauses] Because it is what my mother would have wanted. And we are all, in the end, slaves to our family's wishes.

Season 2 Episodes[edit]

[2.01] War Council[edit]

[Dracula has summoned his legions, all his generals, and his two Devil Forgemasters in the throne room to discuss plans to eradicate the human race.]
Dracula: My generals, we prosecute a good war. In killing my wife, humanity has proven to me that they don't deserve Wallachia. Wallachia will now become our seat. We will scour them off the land. We will continue to use the night hordes, all the creatures of terror that humanity once drove away. Afterwards, I think I will give Wallachia to them. (more to himself) Perhaps, that will be better.
[The generals are left confused as to what Dracula meant.]
Dracula: Hector, Isaac, present me with plans for our next steps today.
[Dracula turns and starts to walk away.]
Godbrand: (outraged) The only two humans in your inner court, and they are the ones who will plan our next attack?!
[Dracula stops walking and turns to face Godbrand.]
Dracula: The only two generals in my court who are not driven by thirst. The only two who are bound by loyalty and intellect. True. They are not vampires like you and I, Godbrand. And that is why I trust them. For we are about the business of wiping humanity from the Earth. And they still stand with me.
[Dracula exits the throne room, leaving the generals alone.]
Godbrand: What the hell was that? He summons us from all over the world, tells us it's war. We're finally putting the screws to the livestock and taking over. And now this? Turning the whole thing over to a couple of humans? What is this shit?
[Hector and Isaac follow after Dracula.]
Godbrand: Hey! Where are you two going?
Hector: We're going to talk to him.
Godbrand: Why would he want to talk to you rather than me? Perhaps he wants to meet with his own kind.
Hector: Godbrand, you've never met anything you didn't immediately kill, fuck, or make a boat out of.
Isaac: I don't understand why our lord doesn't tie you up outside with the rest of the animals.
[Hector and Isaac exit.]
Godbrand: Bigot! I like boats! I'm a fucking Viking! We're supposed to make boats out of things!

[2.02] Old Homes[edit]

Trevor: If there are solutions to the problems of finding and killing Dracula, they are in the Hold.
Alucard: You're guessing, though.
Trevor: I am guessing. I can't read or understand magic. But my family stored everything they found, including books of magic and whatever weird stuff they came across. I just can't do anything with it. [He pauses.] But you two can.
Alucard: Fortunate indeed then, that I chose not to kill you and eat you, Belmont.
Trevor: And that I decided against gutting you, flaying you, and turning you into shoes, Alucard. [He lifts up his right foot and motions to his boot.]
Sypha: Such a merry band we are. [She pauses, beginning to walk away then stops.] I will find us a covered wagon and horses if you two can manage not to kill each other while I'm gone. [She looks back at Trevor and Alucard.]
Alucard: Oh, please. We're not children.
[Sypha walks away.]
Trevor: [Pointing at Alucard] Eat shit and die.
Alucard: Yes, fuck you.
[They both chuckle.]

[2.03] Shadow Battles[edit]

Trevor: Is there a point to these questions?
Alucard: I'm disturbed to find I had more of a childhood than you did.
Trevor: And your dad's fucking Dracula.
[All three of them chuckle.]

[Inside the Belmont Hold, Trevor notices a treasure chest inside an alcove and goes to investigate.]
Trevor: Bloody hell. Is that what I think it is?
Sypha: (jokingly) Careful, Trevor. You almost sounded excited about something.
[Trevor knocks aside some debris to reach the chest.]
Trevor: It couldn't be, could it?
[Trevor drags the chest from its resting place into the open, while Sypha keeps studying a tome. Trevor takes out a knife and uses it to break the lock off. He opens the chest, revealing a long metal chain with a handle on one end and spiked head on the other. Trevor picks it up, gingerly and with great joy.]
Trevor: Beautiful.
Sypha: (unamused) What on Earth is that ugly thing?
Trevor: (elated) I don't believe they hid it. It's the morning star.

[Dracula sits alone in his study in front of the fireplace as Godbrand enters.]
Godbrand: May I speak to you?
Dracula: Approach, Godbrand.
Godbrand: I have a question.
Dracula: Go on.
Godbrand: If you kill all the humans, what are we gonna eat?
Dracula: (looks up) What?
Godbrand: It's very simple, Dracula. If you kill all the humans, where does the continuing supply of human blood come from?
Dracula: (exasperated sigh) I allow you to go on feeding raids when we change location. I have blood stored in cold canisters. There are animals in the lower levels. You won't go hungry, Godbrand.
Godbrand: Not right now, no. But later. I don't want to be rationing myself on fucking pig blood.
Dracula: (glaringly) Careful.
Godbrand: Pig blood gives me the shits. I'm sorry, but there it is.
Dracula: You will be taken care of, Godbrand.
Godbrand: Yes, of course. Right. Except, what if we're not? What if you just wanna kill all the humans and you don't leave us enough to keep in camps to feed from?
[Dracula rises up from his chair and walks threateningly towards Godbrand until the latter is backed against a wall.]
Dracula: I will not be questioned by you. I have told you how it will be. The humans will die. You will be taken care of. Little Godbrand. Little vampire. Little parasite. Little boat weevil who delights in making noise and pretending he is important and dangerous. Are you going to continue questioning me? Are you going to fight me, little Godbrand?
Godbrand: (pauses) No.
[Dracula keeps his face just inches away from Godbrand.]
Dracula: Then why are you still here making your little noises? Get out before I slit you up the middle and bite out your heart.
[Godbrand scurries out of the room while Dracula sits back down in his seat, breathing heavily and tired out.

[2.04] Broken Mast[edit]

[2.05] Last Spell[edit]

[Morning comes as both Hector and Issac step outside to talk alone. Hector stops to enjoy the sight and feel the incoming breeze.]:
Hector: (sigh) You can spend so long in the castle that you forget how the sun feels. Don't you think?
Issac: I like the castle. The stone stays cool, no matter where we are.
Hector: You like the cold?
Issac: When I'm cold, I can eat meat or throw a cloak on. I spent my life in hot places. You can't escape heat. Keep walking. Vampires have sharp ears, and you said we needed to talk.
Hector: You're concerned about the vampires hearing us?
Issac: I'm not a fool, Hector. If you weren't concerned, you wouldn't want the conversation out in the daylight.
Hector: I just didn't want to be interrupted by argument.
Issac: They are good at arguing.
Hector: I used to liken them to wolves or bats. A strong sense of community, acting as one. But lately... I see the vampires as cats. Swiping, hunting or ignoring each other.
Issac: You think of vampires as animals?
Hector: In a way. They are pure creatures. They have grace. Animals don't act with malice.
Issac: Cats play with their food all the time.
Hector: True. But it's not malicious. There's joy in it.
Issac: Not for the food.
[Hector and Issac move further from the castle and into a nearby forest.]:
Issac: So?
Hector: The cats need herding, Issac.
Issac: That's a good way to get your eyes clawed out, Hector.
Hector: I mean it. Dracula gave us the task of creating a war plan. But between his generals, their fighting, and his own attitude...
Issac: And what attitude is that?
Hector: He doesn't care.
Issac: He cares very much. He wants all of the humans to die. He's quite clear on that.
Hector: That hasn't escaped me. My point is that he doesn't care how. And we're failing him.
Issac: Oh? Are we, now?
Hector: Yes. We need to assert an order to the war. We're the agents of his rage, not paintings of it. We can't just thrash around.
Issac: What do you want, Hector?
Hector: I want to present a united front. I want a plan. I want to move forward, get this over with in an orderly manner. I want you to agree to move on Braila. (sigh) I know that, strictly speaking, we're never been friends.
Issac: It seems counterproductive to cultivate human friends when we're engaged in the product of ending the human race.
Hector: But we are on the same side.
[Hector places his hand on Issac's shoulder.]:
Issac: Is this where we kiss like Benedictine monks from different monasteries?
Hector: I don't think I've heard you try to tell a joke before.
Issac: You still haven't.

[2.06] The River[edit]

[In the midst of the battle between Dracula and Carmilla's forces, his Castle shudders, then disappears entirely.]
Carmilla: ...What the fuck just happened?

[Trevor finishes off a night creature with an improvised weapon.]
Trevor: When you get back to whatever steaming underworld shithole you came from, you tell them there are still Belmonts up here.

Sypha: I did it!
Alucard: Where did you land the castle, Sypha?
Sypha: (proudly) Right on top of us!
[The roof creaks. Alucard gives her a look.]
Sypha: ...Oh, yes. I landed it on the surface, right above this underground space that's probably only held up by wood and dirt. Let's go!

[2.07] For Love[edit]

Isaac: Behind me, Dracula! They will not reach you while I live!
Dracula: (marveling) You would give your mortal life to preserve my immortal one?
Isaac: To save your genius, your knowledge, and your will? Without question. I am just a Forgemaster. Yours is the wisdom of ages.
Dracula: You are the greatest of your people, Isaac. You have a soul, I think. Perhaps that is more valuable to the world to come than a dusty collection of books and apparatus. Or perhaps you simply deserve a better fate than to die instead of me.
Isaac: I choose my death, as I chose my life.
Dracula: Then I regret only that I have taken a choice for you.
[He hurls Isaac through a magic mirror, teleporting him away from the castle.]
Isaac: No! Dracula! No!
[The portal closes, leaving him alone in the desert.]

[Alucard confronts Dracula in his father's study.]
Alucard: Father.
Dracula: Son.
Alucard: Your war is over.
Dracula: (slight grin) Because you say so?
Alucard: It ends... in the name of my mother.
Dracula: (sharply) It ENDURES in the name of your mother.
Alucard: I told you before I won't let you do it. I grieve with you, but I won't let you commit genocide.
Dracula: You couldn't stop me before.
[Trevor and Sypha enter the study beside Alucard.]
Alucard: I was alone before.
[The fight begins.]

Dracula: (wounded, but not seriously) The Morning Star whip... well played, Belmont. But I am no ordinary vampire to be killed by your human magics. I am Vlad Dracula Tepes, AND I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

Dracula: (laughs contemptuously) You mean to stake me?
Alucard: You want me to.
Dracula: What?
Alucard: You didn't kill me before. You won't kill me now. You want this to end as much as I do.
Dracula: DO I?!
Alucard: You died when my mother died, you know you did. This entire catastrophe has been nothing but history's longest suicide note!

[Dracula's fight with Alucard carries them into the latter's childhood bedroom in the castle. He freezes]
Dracula: My boy. I'm... I'm killing my boy. Lisa... I'm killing our boy. We painted this room, we... made these toys. It's our boy, Lisa. Your greatest gift to me, and I'm killing him... I must already be dead.
[He does not resist as Alucard steps up to him and stakes him through the heart.]
Dracula: Son...
Alucard: Father...

[2.08] End Times[edit]

[at an oasis in the desert]
Isaac: Keep moving. I'm not in the mood.
Bandit: Well, what do we have here? It's thirsty, whatever it is. Don't drink the entire pool.
Isaac: There is enough water for all.
Bandit: Oh, I don't care about all. I only care about us.
Isaac: There will be plenty for you after I'm gone.
Bandit: But perhaps we want it all.
Isaac: Yes, you probably do. Your kind always does.
2nd Bandit: I think the desert has left us a little gift, don't you?
Bandit: Put a rope around it. Drag it behind us. Perhaps we can sell it at the next town. Unless we get hungry between now and then, I suppose.
Isaac: Is that really the best you have? Your best response to finding a lone stranger drinking at an oasis. Call him "it," and immediately draw plans to sell him or eat him?
Bandit: You don't matter. You don't deserve my best. You're just some drifting clump of shit I discovered on the road and I'll do with you as I wish. Only I and my friends here matter. You are simply meat.
Isaac: I'm not human?
Bandit: Oh, I'm sure you're human, Sir Philosopher of the Water Hole. I simply don't care.
Isaac: (smiles) Me neither.
[He draws his dagger, leaps onto the bandit's horse and slashes a huge wound in his chest. The other four bandits attack, and he easily kills them all.]

Sypha: When I met you, you reeked of piss, blood and stale beer. You killed a monster largely by accident...
Trevor: Hey, that took serious skills!
Sypha: And then demanded alcohol before storming off like a toddler with a thistle up his back end.
Trevor: Right-right, how does that even...?
Sypha: Shh! And now, in the short time we have known each other, you have rediscovered yourself, and you've grown. Today might be the first time I felt like I was talking to an adult man. You're better than you were when I met you. Do you know why I think that is? It's because you're doing what you were born for. As insane as it sounds, this entire nightmare scenario has made you complete. I think you should see it through... with me.
Trevor: With you?
Sypha: Yes. You could be my handsome sidekick or mascot. Imagine that. If you didn't talk much, people would think you were my deformed pet bear and throw you free food.

[Alucard is alone and exploring his father's castle. He sees a ghostly image of Dracula.]
Alucard: Is this how the castle felt to you before my mother first arrived at your door?
