The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)
Mina Harker: Not Gray. He's lived long enough.

Mina Harker: A man who worships death. Can we trust him?
Allan Quatermain: He's not the one I'm worried about.

Allan Quartermain: Well, we were the faster, but now we're the tortoise to his hare.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: So, we're done?
Tom Sawyer: No, we're alive. If M has any idea to the contrary, that gives us an edge.
Captain Nemo: The sea is vast, he could be anywhere.
Tom Sawyer: Yeah, well, I'm an optimist, now maybe that's a crime to you twisted so-and-so's but it keeps me from going crazy.
Mina Harker: Your optimism's out of place.
Tom Sawyer: You're wrong! Because we'll get out, man... at least, I will. That other agent I told you about... was my childhood friend. We were agents together until the Fantom shot him dead. Now you can be done, but I am not. I will avenge his death.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: It's not about any one of us, Tom, it's bigger than that.
Tom Sawyer: Yes, it is, Jekyll! The fate for the world is in our hands... the world! So M tricked you, he brought you all together and you walked straight into his trap. But the way that I see it, that's the part he did wrong... He brought you together.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: He has a point.
Allan Quartermain: And the boy becomes a man... perhaps a leader of men.
Mina Harker: And Women.

Dorian Gray: Mina. You're alive.
Mina Harker: It's possible I can't die. Same could be said of you. Let's put it to the test.

Dorian Gray: Ah. The bedroom, Mina. Does it give you memories? Or ideas?
Mina Harker: Ideas.
[She stabs him in the groin]
Dorian Gray: [gasping] If that had been permanent, I'd have been very upset!

Mina Harker: You broke my heart once. This time you missed.

Mina Harker: You're sweet... and you're young. Neither are traits that I hold in high regard.

Mina Harker: Do you realize what you've done? What you've let out of me?
Dorian Gray: A woman's wrath? Oh, I'm petrified.

Mina Harker: I'm not much of a drinker.

Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): So, how did M get you?
Allan Quatermain: None of your business.
Mina Harker: You're a little testy, Mr. Q.
Allan Quatermain: Mrs. Harker, I doubt if you measure danger the way I do.
Mina Harker: And I imagine you with quite the library, Mr. Quatermain. All those books you must have read merely by looking at their covers.
Allan Quatermain: I've had women along on past exploits, and found them to be, at best, a distraction.
Mina Harker: Do I distract you?
Allan Quatermain: My dear girl, I've buried two wives and many lovers... and I'm in no mood for more of either.
Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man): You can send 'em my way.
Allan Quatermain: Skinner, shut up.

Rodney Skinner (the Invisible Man): Oh, scotch anyone?
Dorian Gray: Help yourself.
Mina Harker: Don't let it ruin your makeup.
Captain Nemo: I'm impressed, Mr. Gray. You take Skinner's uniqueness in your stride.
Dorian Gray: Well, I've seen too much in my life to shock easily.

Mina Harker: [imitating Quatermain] This hunt is too dangerous for a woman, even one such as you. Leave it to me.

Mina Harker: [after seeing a painful reaction Jekyll's face] You all right?
Dr. Henry Jekyll: My ears hurt, it's nothing.

Mina Harker: And you are?
Tom Sawyer: Special Agent Sawyer, American Secret Service.

Mina Harker: [to Sawyer] I've had my fill of throats tonight!

Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. And the hunt is still on.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: What are you talking about?
Allan Quartermain: The Phantom is M. The same man who recruited us.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: [trying to examine Allan's wound] Let me see that.
[he is shrugged off]
Captain Nemo: But how?
Allan Quartermain: We'll get our answers. Where are the others?
Mina Harker: [entering] Dorian's missing in action. And Mr. Skinner must have fled when he realized we knew.
Allan Quartermain: [concerned] Sawyer?
Tom Sawyer: [entering with a bloody lip] He'll live to fight another day.
Mina Harker: [advances towards Tom, he draws back] Don't worry, I've had my fill of throats for this evening.


Dracula (1992)
Mina: I want to be what you are, see what you see, love what you love.
Dracula: Mina, to walk with me you must die to your breathing life and be reborn to mine.
Mina: You are my love... and my life, always.
Dracula: Then, I give you life eternal. Everlasting love. The power of the storm. And the beasts of the earth. Walk with me to be my loving wife, forever.

Mina Harker: How did Lucy die? Was she in great pain?
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Yeah, she was in great pain! Then we cut off her head, and drove a stake through her heart, and burned it, and then she found peace.

Mina Harker: Take me away from all this death!

[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.

Mina: I love you! Oh, God forgive me, I do!

Mina: [watching Lucy flirt with possible suitors at the party, voiceover] Lucy is a pure and virtuous girl. But, I admit that her free way of speaking shocks me sometimes. Jonathan says it is a defect of the aristocracy that they say what they please. The truth is that I admire Lucy, and I'm not surprised that men flock around her. I wish I were as pretty and as adored as she.

[last lines]
Mina: [narrating] There, in the presence of God, I understood at last how love could release us all from the power of darkness. Our love is stronger than death.
Dracula: Give me peace.
Mina: [impales him with the sword, then kisses him, then beheads him]

Lucy Westenra: Come to me, Arthur. Leave these others and come to me. My arms are hungry for you, my darling.

Lucy Westenra: Quincy... you're such a beast. Will you kiss me, Quincy?
[Pulls Quincy close]
Lucy Westenra: Kiss me. Kiss...
[snarls; growls]


Count Dracula (1977) (TV)
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: [after Mina removes Lucy's shawl and seeing the puncture wounds on Lucy's neck] Oh dear. How careless of me.
Lucy Westenra: What is it?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: Oh, when I fastened the brooch I must have pricked you.
Lucy Westenra: I didn't feel anything.

Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: [Mina has gotten a letter with information about Jonathan] It's nothing, really. Mr. Hawkins has had a letter from Jonathan.
Lucy Westenra: What does it say?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: That he's on is way home and is waiting for the express at Bistritz.
Mrs. Westenra: Well, when does he leave?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: June the 18th.
Mrs. Westenra: Then he should have been home weeks ago.

Lucy Westenra: Come to me Quincey. Come my love. Leave these others, and we can rest together for eternity.

[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.

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.

Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: But doesn't each life possess a soul? Even a fly and the sparrow? Can one take a life without being responsible for the soul?

Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: In this dream I had, dogs were barking on the heath. I thought I heard you shouting. Protesting. I couldn't understand what you were saying. I dreamt that my life was slowly being drained away and that when I had no more blood, my soul would never find peace.
Renfield: Your soul?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: Yes.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: What do you think, Mr Renfield? That in some way I, I could have been so sinful that I must spend my afterlife in purgatory?
Renfield: I pray God I may never see your sweet face again. May he bless you and keep you.

Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: Yes. Yes. You are safe here.
Abraham Van Helsing: It is for you I fear.
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: For me? None safer from them than me. I too am their sister!

Abraham Van Helsing: The hour has come, Madame Mina - are you afraid?
Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra: No, of course not. I'm in your hands.
Abraham Van Helsing: We are both of us in God's hands.

Mina Murray: [after Dr.Steward catches Jonathan with his hands on Mina's behind] Without any reason, he put his hands on me!

Mina Seward: Why, Count Dracula!
Count Dracula: There are far worse things awaiting man than death.

Mina Seward: ...I heard dogs howling. And when the dream came, it seemed the whole room was filled with mist. It was so thick, I could just see the lamp by the bed, a tiny spark in the fog.

Young Peter: I'm bloodthirsty. She's just ghoulish.


Horror of Dracula (1958)
Arthur: Dr. Van Helsing, I am not at all satisfied. You suddenly appear and tell us that Jonathan Harker is dead. And yet you will not tell us where or how he died. I find it extremely suspicious.
Mina Holmwood: Arthur!

Tania: Do you know what's wrong with her?
Doctor Seward: Of course, I do.

Gerda: Tania... Tania. How many times have I told you not to go bothering Mrs. Holmwood? I'm sorry, ma'am.
