Jonathan Harker: She's alive?
Van Helsing: She's Nosferatu.
Jonathan Harker: She's Italian?

Jonathan Harker: [having been told to drive a stake into Lucy] Oh, that's horrible. Is there no other way?
Van Helsing: One other. We could cut off her head, stuff her mouth with garlic and tear off her ears!
Jonathan Harker: [after a moment's thought] Give me the stake.
[pauses again]
Jonathan Harker: No. No, I can't do it... you do it!
Van Helsing: It must be done by one who loved her in life!
Jonathan Harker: I only liked her!
Van Helsing: Close enough!

[Jonathan had just impaled Lucy, and was hit by two rounds of blood]
Jonathan Harker: Oh! This is - this is ghastly!
Van Helsing: Yes, you're right. We should have put newspapers down!

[Johnathon drives a stake into Lucy's heart and is subsequently hit by many gallons of blood]
Jonathan Harker: Oh... my... GOD! There's so much blood!
Van Helsing: She just ate! Hit her again!
Jonathan Harker: Oh no... i can't...
Van Helsing: How much blood can she have left?
Van Helsing: [Jonathan hits the stake again and is hit with even more blood than last time]
Van Helsing: She's almost dead!
Jonathan Harker: She's dead enough.

[after becoming a vampire, Lucy comes on to Jonathan]
Jonathan Harker: But Lucy, I'm British!
[Lucy reveals her cleavage]
Lucy Westenra: But so are these!

Lucy Westenra: I know you've always wanted me, and I've always wanted you. Finally we can be together.
Jonathan Harker: But Lucy, I'm engaged to Mina... and you're dead.
Lucy Westenra: I'm not dead. I'm undead.
Jonathan Harker: Yes, well, I'm not unengaged.

Jonathan Harker: [watching Mina's reflection in a mirror as she's dancing with Dracula, where it looks like she's dancing alone] She's doing quite well without him, isn't she?

Mina Murray: Oh it makes me so happy to be at the Opera! I love this palace of art and beauty!
Jonathan Harker: Johnathan: Oh yes my dear, the Opera is astonishing! The music is frothed with love, hate, sensuality and unbridled passion!... All the things in my life I've managed to suppress so far.

Jonathan Harker: Are you saying that Count Dracula is our vampire?
Van Helsing: Yes!... and no...
Jonathan Harker: Then what are you saying?
Van Helsing: I'm saying no. But I'm leeeeaning towards yes.
Dr. Steward: Then you're saying yes.
Van Helsing: No.
Dr. Steward: Then you're saying no.
Van Helsing: Not necessarily.
Jonathan Harker: You sound dubious.
Van Helsing: No -I'm positive!
Jonathan Harker: Of what?
Van Helsing: Of my theory!
Jonathan Harker: And that would be?
Van Helsing: The theory of Yes- or no.

Renfield: Are you saying that Count Dracula is our vampire?
Van Helsing: Yes!... and no...
Renfield: Then what are you saying?
Van Helsing: I'm saying no. But I'm leeeeaning towards yes.
Jonathan Harker: Then you're saying yes.
Van Helsing: No.
Jonathan Harker: Then you're saying no.
Van Helsing: Not necessarily.
Renfield: You sound dubious.
Van Helsing: No -I'm positive!
Renfield: Of what?
Van Helsing: Of my theory!
Renfield: And that would be?
Van Helsing: The theory of Yes- or no.

Van Helsing: Where did her blood go? There's nothing on the pillow case, or her nightgown.
[to Dr. Steward]
Van Helsing: Can you explain zhat?
[looks at Jonathan]
Van Helsing: Can you explain zhat?
Dr. Steward: No, I can't explain zhat.
Jonathan Harker: I can't explain zhat, either.
Van Helsing: No one can explain zhat!

Mina Murray: [after Dr.Steward catches Jonathan with his hands on Mina's behind] Without any reason, he put his hands on me!
Jonathan Harker: [exasperate] But she told me to touch it!

Jonathan Harker: I can't, Mina, I'm British.
Mina Murray: But so are these!


Count Dracula (1977) (TV)
Count Dracula: Welcome to my house, Mister Harker. Come freely. Go safely.
Jonathan Harker: Count Dracula?
Count Dracula: I am Count Dracula. Will you come in?... And, please, leave here some of the happiness that you bring.

Jonathan Harker: You must know a great deal of the history of Transylvania.
Count Dracula: All there is to know, I'm afraid. Sometimes, I think, too much.

Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: I know you must fight. But it must not be a fight of hate. That poor soul whose brought about all this misery is the saddest one of all.
Jonathan Harker: Mina, how can you say such things? If I could send his soul to burning hell forever, I would do it.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: Hush, Jonathan. You must be pitiful to him, just as some day you may have to be pitiful to me.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: [pausing] Also, I believe the Count can, somehow, force me to tell him what I know, and be in league against you.
Jonathan Harker: I don't believe it.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: No?
[tearfully, her small fangs showing]
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: Do you think that I don't look at myself in the mirror?
Jonathan Harker: Dearest, don't.
Abraham Van Helsing: Yes, yes, we must face facts, however unpleasant.
[to Dr. Seward]
Abraham Van Helsing: Tell me, how many boxes did you find at Burnhamtree?
Dr. John Seward: Eight.
Abraham Van Helsing: And at the Mile End?
Dr. John Seward: Four.
Abraham Van Helsing: And sanctified them all?
Dr. John Seward: Yes.
Abraham Van Helsing: One box left. Madam Mina, you are the wisest of us all. So tell us, where do you think the last box is?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: There's only one place he'd feel *really* safe.

Count Dracula: I expect you are anxious to return to England.
Jonathan Harker: I should like to start back soon, it's true.
Count Dracula: Very well. Write a letter to your friends, saying that you have already left the Castle and arrived at Bistritz, where you are awaiting the weekly express.
Jonathan Harker: [suspiciously] May I ask with what object, sir?
Count Dracula: The posts are few, and uncertain. Writing now will ease the minds of Mister Hawkins and your fiancee.
Jonathan Harker: Count Dracula.
Count Dracula: Yes?
Jonathan Harker: I have been struck by a curious fact.
Count Dracula: Yes?
Jonathan Harker: I've not seen a single servant since I've been here. Yet my meals are served. My bed is made. Tell me, are we alone in the Castle?
Count Dracula: Alone? How could one be alone in this castle? In its most the past, the *living* past is present, surrounding us.
Jonathan Harker: That does *not* answer my question, sir. I've been here for three weeks and have not once stepped outside the Castle.
Count Dracula: I would gladly have shown you the countryside if you had expressed a wish to do so.
Jonathan Harker: When would we have gone? In the dead of night? I've never set eyes on you during the day.
Count Dracula: I have a large estate to manage.
Jonathan Harker: Nor have I seen you eat.
Count Dracula: I eat alone.
Jonathan Harker: [getting visibly upset] And who would have driven the coach?
Count Dracula: [maintains calm] My driver.
Jonathan Harker: You are lying, Count Dracula.
Count Dracula: You are losing your temper, Mister Harker.
Jonathan Harker: [calming down] Who took me back to my room last night?
Count Dracula: Back to your room? What do you mean?
Jonathan Harker: I slept by mistake in the library. I witnessed a... a nightmare, and woke up in my bed! How did I get there?
Count Dracula: Am I to be held responsible for a vivid imagination?

Jonathan Harker: [to other passengerson the coach] Excuse me. Do any of you speak English?
[looks around]
Jonathan Harker: Speak English.
Coach Passenger: I speak some... little.
Jonathan Harker: Well, when we left the inn, some of the men and women pointed at me; like this.
[demonstrates gesture]
Coach Passenger: Ah... yes.
Jonathan Harker: What does it signify?
[sees the man has failed to understand meaning of the word]
Jonathan Harker: What does it mean?
Coach Passenger: They say it is a charm against the evil eye.
Jonathan Harker: Why should I need the charm more than anyone, say yourself?
Coach Passenger: Where are you alighting?
Jonathan Harker: At the head of the Borgo Pass.
[as he says this, the man's wife crosses herself with a fearful look on her face]
Coach Passenger: It is very important we get there well before midnight and are across the border.
Jonathan Harker: Really? Why is that?
Coach Passenger: You do not know what day this is? It is the fourth of May. The Eve of Saint George. When the clock strikes midnight, all the evil things of the world shall take command.

Count Dracula: We must survive, all of us. The blood of a human for me, a cooked bird for you. Where is the difference?
Jonathan Harker: The difference between good and evil.

Abraham Van Helsing: My books tell me that he was an extraordinary man. A soldier, a cunning statesman - no branch of study was too difficult for him. And the power of his brain has survived his death.
[Says a prayer over the coffin as he drops the holy wafer in]
Abraham Van Helsing: But, he shall not escape. We shall corner him, and we shall drive the stake through his heart.
Jonathan Harker: Pray God that I may do the deed.
Abraham Van Helsing: God will act in His own way, and in His own time.

Count Dracula: I am bound to this earth, I make it my domain. You will die, in your miserable allotted span. I have centuries before me.
Jonathan Harker: Why in God's name did you ever leave your castle?
Count Dracula: We must recruit disciples - just as your leader has done.
Abraham Van Helsing: You shall not capture anymore souls.
Count Dracula: Souls?
[laughs scornfully]
Count Dracula: There is no blood to drink from souls - - if there be such things.
Abraham Van Helsing: We are pledged to rid the world of you.
Count Dracula: It will not be easy. I do not die like the bee when I string once - - I become stronger.

[first lines]
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: You'll write often?
Jonathan Harker: Every day, Mina, I promise.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: And I promise to study my shorthand so that I shall be able to do your letters when we're married.
Lucy Westenra: Jonathan! Jonathan! Time for you to go.
Jonathan Harker: Yes, of course.


Horror of Dracula (1958)
Jonathan Harker: [narrating his diary] It only remains for me now to await the daylight hours where I will with God's help forever end this man's reign of terror!.

[first lines]
Jonathan Harker: [narrating his diary] The Diary of Jonathan Harker... Third of May, 1885. At last, my long journey is drawing to its close. What the eventual end will be, I cannot foresee. But whatever may happen, I can rest secure that I will have done all in my power to achieve success.

Vampire Woman: You will help me, won't you? Say you will, please!
Jonathan Harker: How can I help you?
Vampire Woman: Get me away from here.

Jonathan Harker: You make it very difficult for me. After all, I'm a guest here. If I'm to help you, I must have a reason.
Vampire Woman: A reason! You ask for a reason? Is it not reason enough that he locks me up in this house, holds me against my will? You can have no idea what an evil man he is... or of the terrible things he does!

Vampire Woman: I could not... dare not try to leave on my own. He would find me again, I know. But with you to help me, I might have a chance. You must help me! You must! You're my only hope! You must!
Jonathan Harker: I'll help you, I promise. Please don't distress yourself.


Dracula (1992)
[Jonathan accidentally had a cut while shaving]
Jonathan Harker: I didn't hear you coming in.
Dracula: Take care how you cut yourself. It is more dangerous than you think.
[Dracula breaks the mirror]
Dracula: A foul bauble of man's vanity. Perhaps you should grow a beard.
[He licks the blood off the razor]
Dracula: The letters I requested, have you written them?
[Harker hands him the letters]
Dracula: Good. Should you leave these rooms, you will not by any chance go to sleep in any other part of the castle. It is old and has many bad memories. Be warned.

Dracula: You will, I trust, excuse me if I do not join you. But, I have already dined, and I never drink... wine.
Jonathan Harker: [looks at painting on the wall] An ancestor? I see a resemblance.
Dracula: The Order of the Dracul, the Dragon. An ancient society, pledging my forefathers to defend the church against all enemies of Christ. Their relationship was not entirely... successful.
Jonathan Harker: Oh.
[chuckles]
Jonathan Harker: Yes.
Dracula: [roars with rage as he draws a sword and points it at Harker's throat] It is no laughing matter! We Draculs have a right to be proud! What devil or witch was ever so great as Atilla, whose blood flows in these veins? Blood...
[laughs]
Dracula: Is too precious a thing in these times. The war-like days are over. The victories of my great race are but a tale to be told. I am the last of my kind.
Jonathan Harker: I have offended you with my ignorance, Count. Forgive me.

Jonathan Harker: The Count, the way he looked at Mina's picture fills me with dread. As if I have a part to play in a story that is not known to me.

[Dracula has been slashed in the throat by Jonathan and impaled by Quincey]
Mina: [to Jonathan] When my time comes, will you do the same to me? Will you?
Jonathan Harker: [pause] No.


Nosferatu (1922)
Hutter: I am going far away to the land of robbers and ghosts.

Hutter: I am plagued by mosquitoes. Two have just bitten me on the neck, quite close together, one on each side.

Hutter: My dreams are heavy in this desolate castle, but do not fear.

Hutter: Ellen ! Ellen !


Dracula (1979)
Count Dracula: You fools! Do you think with your crosses and your wafers you can destroy me? Me! You do not know how many men have come against me. I am the *king* of my kind! You have accomplished nothing, Van Helsing. Time is on my side. In a century, when you are dust, I shall wake and call Lucy, my queen, from her grave. I have in my time had many brides, Mr. Harker. But I shall set Lucy above them all.
Jonathan Harker: You won't get Lucy!
Count Dracula: She's mine already.

Jonathan Harker: COUNT DRACULA!
Count Dracula: You needn't shout, Mr. Harker. You frightened me.
Jonathan Harker: I'm sorry. I had a key.
[holds key up]
Jonathan Harker: I had to let myself in.
Count Dracula: I wonder where Renfield can be.
Jonathan Harker: I don't know. I knocked but he didn't...
Count Dracula: [interrupts] Yes, well, the man is worthless.


Dracula (1931)
Renfield, Van Helsing: Mr. Harker, I have devoted my lifetime to the study of many strange things. Little-known facts which the world is, perhaps, better off for not knowing.
John Harker: I know. But Professor, all I want is to get Mina away from all of this.
Van Helsing: That will do no good. Our only chance of saving Miss Mina's life is to find the hiding place of Dracula's living corpse and to drive a stake through its heart.
Renfield: Isn't this a strange conversation for men who aren't crazy?

John Harker: My, what a big bat!

Jonathan Harker: No!
Vampire Sister: So we meet again.
Vampire Sister: And you brought your cute friends!

Vampire Sister: Come, come to us. We'll give you things you only dreamed of.
Arthur Holmwood: Yes, I will come...
Vampire Sister: Have you ever given yourself to a woman?

Jonathan Harker: I am being put aside for a monster.
Mina Murray: [demonic voice] He is not a monster!
