The Wolfman (2010)
[from trailer]
Lawrence Talbot: I will kill all of you!

[from trailer]
Lawrence Talbot: [from trailer] I am what they say I am... I'm a monster.

Sir John Talbot: [from trailer] Lo and behold, the prodigal son returns. I hope you're not expecting a fatted calf.
Lawrence Talbot: [from trailer] Hello father.

[from trailer]
Lawrence Talbot: You have to leave.
Gwen Conliffe: What are you afraid of...?

Lawrence Talbot: [from trailer] What happened?
Sir John Talbot: [from trailer] Your brother's body was found in a ditch. He'd been torn to pieces.

Lawrence Talbot: I must confess, I envy my brother. The days he had with you, what joy he must have felt. I would have given anything I own to have known you in another life. I must get back to Talbot Hall and end this.

Sir John Talbot: Are those Singh's silver bullets in my gun?
Lawrence Talbot: I'm sorry.
Sir John Talbot: You have me at a disadvantage. It makes me happy.
Lawrence Talbot: What does?
Sir John Talbot: Well, seeing you here like this. My son returned. It is glorious, isn't it?
Lawrence Talbot: No, it's hell.

Lawrence Talbot: [his eyes open after being shot by a silver bullet and transforming back into a human] Gwen?
Gwen Conliffe: [crying] I'm sorry...
Lawrence Talbot: It had to be this way.
Gwen Conliffe: I'm sorry.
Lawrence Talbot: [he holds her hand] Thank you.
[Dies]

Sir John Talbot: She exerts enormous power, doesn't she?
Lawrence Talbot: I wish things were different.
Sir John Talbot: Never look back, Lawrence. Never look back. The past is a wilderness of horrors. Lawrence... I'm glad you're home.

Lawrence Talbot: I get your implication, and resent it. You're clearly aware of my personal history, as I believe I'm aware of yours. Weren't you in charge of the ripper case a couple of years back?
Det. Aberline: You're a direct man. So I'll be equally direct with you. I am not your enemy, Mr. Talbot. You've been seen as Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard III, all with that same face. A prudent man would ask who else might be living inside that head of yours?

Lawrence Talbot: You killed my mother.
Sir John Talbot: Yes, I suppose I did.

Gwen Conliffe: What's happened?
Lawrence Talbot: You have to leave. Please pack your things.
Gwen Conliffe: Did I do something?
Lawrence Talbot: It's not safe here. You must return to London tonight.

Gwen Conliffe: Lawrence, please let me help you.
Lawrence Talbot: You already have.

Gwen Conliffe: What are you afraid of?
Lawrence Talbot: If anything ever happened to you I'd never forgive myself.

Lawrence Talbot: Do you believe in curses?
Singh: This house has seen it's fair share of tragedy. Your mother. Your brother. Yes, I believe in curses.

[Sir John has just saved Lawrence from a mob of angry villagers by warning them that Singh is on top of the mansion with a reloading rifle]
Lawrence Talbot: Thank you father.
Sir John Talbot: You can thank Singh. Whenever he gets back from the village. You're not the only one in this family who can act.

Lawrence Talbot: You should kill yourself.
Sir John Talbot: Oh, I cannot tell you how often I've considered that. But life is far too glorious, Lawrence, especially to the cursed and the damned, like myself.

[Sir John begins playing the piano which startles Lawrence. Lawrence points the shotgun at his father]
Sir John Talbot: I will arise and go to my father and I will say unto him, 'Father I have sinned against heaven and before thee. I am no more worthy to be called thy son'.
[He stops playing and looks at Lawrence]
Lawrence Talbot: Lo and behold there he stands, the prodical son, for he is returned.
[Sir John stands up and begins moving toward Lawrence who raises the shotgun]
Sir John Talbot: Shall I have my own robe brought to be placed upon your shoulders? Rings for your fingers? Shoes for your feet?
Lawrence Talbot: What you should do is pray. But we both know it wouldn't do any good.
Sir John Talbot: Are those Singh's silver bullets in my gun?
Lawrence Talbot: I'm sorry.
Sir John Talbot: You have me at a disadvantage. It makes me happy.
Lawrence Talbot: What does?
Sir John Talbot: Well, seeing you here like this. My son returned. It is glorious, isn't it?
Lawrence Talbot: No, it's hell
Sir John Talbot: Hell? No. The beast is the beast. Let it run free.

[repeated line]
Lawrence Talbot: I'll kill you.

Sir John Talbot: You sure you won't stay one more night?
Gwen Conliffe: My father has lodgings at the inn, and that's more convenient for the train so...
[She turns to Lawrence]
Gwen Conliffe: When do you return to London?
Lawrence Talbot: Not till I find out what happened to my brother.
[Gwen turns and climbs into the carraige. She and Lawrence exchange a brief glance before the driver pulls away]
Sir John Talbot: Lawrence, that's all well and good, but I think your inquiry could wait until tomorrow. The moon is full tonight and I'd prefer that you stay inside in the event that your raving lunatic theory is correct. I don't want to lose you too.

Lawrence Talbot: Miss Conliffe. I am Lawrence.
Gwen Conliffe: I know who you are.
Lawrence Talbot: I'm sorry we're meeting like this. These were Ben's. He'd want you to have them.
[He hands her a bag, a ring, and a picture of her]
Lawrence Talbot: If there is anything you need, anything at all, please let me know.
Gwen Conliffe: I want to know what happened to him.
Lawrence Talbot: I'll do everything I can.
Gwen Conliffe: Thank you. Thank you for coming.

Lawrence Talbot: [Seeing the silver bullets] Singh, I didn't know you hunted monsters.
Singh: [Ominously] Sometimes monsters hunt you.


Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
Wilbur Grey: Mr. Talbot, and I thought you were such a nice man too. Look at you, you're a mess.
Larry Talbot: Last night I went through another one of my horrible experiences. Many years ago I was bitten by a werewolf. Now, whenever the full moon rises I turn into a wolf myself.
Wilbur Grey: Oh pal. That's all right; I'm sort of a wolf myself.

Larry Talbot: I know you'll think I'm crazy, but in a half an hour the moon will rise and I'll turn into a wolf.
Wilbur: You and twenty million other guys.
Larry Talbot: [slamming Wilbur into a locker with Chick going in behind him] Listen! I might tear you limb from limb!
Wilbur: [turning to Chick in the locker] Is that serious?
Chick Young: He'll murder ya!
Wilbur: [turns to Talbot] That's serious.

Larry Talbot: Soon the moon will rise. I've taken the room across the hall; here's the key, lock me in.
Wilbur Grey: Lock you in?
Larry Talbot: Yes, please. Hurry.
[to Chick]
Wilbur Grey: He's scared too.

Chick Young: Why don't you get down to the police station and tell them you know the story of Dracula and Monster they'd be very interested.
Larry Talbot: I can't do that because then I'd have to tell them who I am and how I know what I know.

Wilbur Grey: I've got a date. In fact I've got two dates.
Larry Talbot: But you and I 'have a date with destiny'.
Wilbur Grey: Let Chick go with Destiny.

Larry Talbot: I just got a line on Dracula and the Monster. A certain Dr. Lajos has been receiving a lot of electrical equipment - just the type necessary to revive the Monster.
Wilbur Grey: So what? I'm way out on an island. I got my own problems.
Larry Talbot: Yes, but listen... I believe you're in the house of Dracula right now!

Larry Talbot: So! We meet again, Count Dracula.
Dracula: Dracula?
Wilbur Grey: Yes. That's who he says you are.
Dracula: Oh. My costume perhaps?
Chick Young: [jokingly] No. Talbot here thinks you're the real thing.
Wilbur Grey: Uh-huh. Right out of McDougal's House of Horrors.
Dracula: What an odd hallucination. But, the human mind is often inflamed with strange complexes. I suggest you consult your physician, Mr. Talbot.
Chick Young: [referring to Wilbur] And take him along with you, please.

Dr. Lejos/Dracula: Miss Raymond, would you honor me with a dance?
Larry Talbot: No, I warn you, he is Count Dracula.
Joan Raymond: How interesting. Tell me more.
Dr. Lejos/Dracula: Let "me" tell you, while we dance. Pardon me, Mr. Talbot.

Larry Talbot: Have you seen Chick Young or Wilbur Grey?
Waiter: Seen 'em? I don't even know them.

Larry Talbot: [gives Wilbur a key] Lock me in, and no matter what you hear or what you might think, don't let me out!

Chick Young: What's the matter?
Larry Talbot: I know you'll think I'm crazy, but... in a half-an-hour the moon will rise and I'll turn into a wolf.
Wilbur Grey: You and 40 million other guys!

Count Vladislaus Dracula: Werewolves are such a nuisance during their first full moon, so hard to control.
[just as the Werwolf is about to lunge at him, he stops and transforms back to Velkan, writhing in pain. Dracula strides majestically past him]
Count Vladislaus Dracula: I send you on a simple errand, to find out who our new friend is, and you have to stop for a little visit with your sister.
Velkan: Leave her out of this, Count! She doesn't know your secret, and I am soon to take it to my grave.
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Don't wish for death so quickly. I intend for you to be quite useful.
Velkan: I would rather die than help you.
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Oh, don't be boring, everybody who says that dies.

[the Dwergi rip a blackened corpse out of the machine's pod and throw it down in front of Velkan]
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Look familiar?
[Velkan recognizes the crucifix around the corpse's neck]
Velkan: Father? No!
[charges at Dracula]
Count Vladislaus Dracula: [stops him easily with a finger] He proved useless. But I'm hoping with Werewolf venom running through your veins, you will be of greater benefit.
