Dr. Gustav Niemann[edit]

  • Don't go this way. Quicksands! Quicksands! Not this way. Quicksands! Not that way. Quicksands! Quicksands!

Count Dracula[edit]

  • I drink to love. A union to last throughout eternity. A love free from all material needs.

Lawrence Talbot[edit]

  • Who are you? Why have you freed me from the ice that imprisoned the beast that lived within me? Why?
  • [speaking of Frankenstein's monster] He wanted life and strength. I wanted only death. Yet, here we are.


Gustav Niemann: Fifteen thousand Marks. A thousand for every year I spent in a stinking, slimy dungeon. You bargain poorly, Herr Ulman.
Ullman: Don't kill me!
Dr. Gustav Niemann: Kill my trusted old assistant? Why, no. I'm going to repay you for betraying me; I'm going to give that brain of yours a new home in the skull of the Frankenstein monster. As for you Strauss, I'm going to give you the brain of the wolfman so that all your waking hours will be spent in untold agony awaiting the full of the moon... which will change you into a werewolf.

Daniel: Master.
Dr. Gustav Niemann: Yes?
Daniel: Now that I have helped you with Strauss and Ullman, will you give Talbot's body to me?
Dr. Gustav Niemann: What?
Daniel: He's big. He's strong.
Dr. Gustav Niemann: Talbot's body is the perfect place for the monster's brain that I will add to and subtract from in my experiments.
Daniel: Master, you made me a promise.
Dr. Gustav Niemann: No! You think I'd wreck the work of a lifetime because you're in love with a, a Gypsy girl?
Daniel: I've killed four men for you!
Dr. Gustav Niemann: Do as I say or I'll never help you.

Daniel: Could Frankenstein have made me like other men?
Dr. Gustav Niemann: He gave life to a body that he made from parts of other bodies that had died. Yes, Daniel, he could have made you like other men.

Dr. Gustav Niemann: Do you doubt me?
Professor Bruno Lampini: It's a doubting world, kind sir!

Count Dracula: You admire my ring?
Rita: When I look at it, I see glimpses of a strange world. A world of people who are dead and yet alive.
Count Dracula: It is the place from which I've just returned.
Rita: It frightens me.
Count Dracula: Wear it. It will drive away your fears.

Daniel: Even a man who's pure in heart and says his prayers by night...
Ilonka: ...will become a werewolf when the wolf bane blooms and the moon is full and bright.

Lawrence Talbot: No earthly power can help those that are marked by the sign of the pentagram.
Dr. Gustav Niemann: You came here to ask Frankenstein for help, didn't you?
Lawrence Talbot: Yes, but I was too late. He was dead. I wanted to die too.
