"Moonlight: What's Left Behind (#1.15)" (2008)
Beth Turner: I know quitting Buzzwire was the right decision but I don't know ...
ADA Benjamin Talbot: Being and unemployed isn't all you dreamed it would be.

ADA Benjamin Talbot: You know when I asked you here, it *wasn't* a group invitation.
Beth Turner: Oh, I didn't call Mick.
ADA Benjamin Talbot: I mean it just seems where ever one goes, the other one's not far behind.

Beth Turner: Hey so I just saw a photo of you at Robert's. You were in the war with his father. Why didn't you tell me you wanted to help because you knew the family?
Mick St. John: Because they could *be* my family.

Beth Turner: So you think Robert...? How could you not know you had a son?
Mick St. John: When I left Layla, I had no idea she was pregnant. I checked Robert's birthdate, it's possible.
Beth Turner: Why did you leave her?
Mick St. John: Because Ray survived. He was in a coma for months, he lost his dog tags. The Army didn't know who he was. When Ray turned up, I made myself scare. What else could I do? I left my best friend for dead, and then I stole his wife... It was wrong.
Beth Turner: It wasn't wrong if it was love!... Was it love?
Mick St. John: [Mick flashes back] Yeah. Yeah, I think it was.

Mick St. John: It's been opened recently. Once he was in the kitchen, he could take the servant's stairs to the attic, and take his time.
Robert Fordham: To take my son!
Beth Turner: So Jacob was right. The monster was in the walls.
Mick St. John: And in the floors, and in the ceiling.

Mick St. John: You investigating *me* now?
ADA Benjamin Talbot: Depends, you got anything to hide?
Mick St. John: No. Not anymore. Papparrazzi exposed my deepest secrets. Shoe size: 10 1/2. Favorite color: blue.
Beth Turner: Boxers not briefs? How'd we get onto to this delightful subject?
ADA Benjamin Talbot: We digressed.

Mick St. John: You should get some rest too.
Beth Turner: [scoffs] It's hard to get sleep knowing Jacob's out there with this nut.
Mick St. John: We'll get him back... We *have* to!
Beth Turner: The D.A.'s office will narrow down the list. Ben's got a good team.
Mick St. John: "Ben?"... Wow... Should I be jealous.
Beth Turner: Of course. Even if I have no romantic interest in him, your jealousy make me feel desirable.

Mick St. John: So about what Josef said ...
Beth Turner: What? That we can't have a baby?
Mick St. John: You want to have my baby?
Beth Turner: What do you think about Elliott for a boy?... I'm kidding. Relax. But I mean children are part of most normal human relationships.
Mick St. John: Our relationship being neither normal nor human.

Mick St. John: But Josef was right. Vampires can't have kids. So I mean if it's going to be a deal breaker...
Beth Turner: Whoa. Whoa! I think we're getting ahead of ourselves. I mean we haven't even slept with each other yet. May not be any good.
[pause then both smile]
Beth Turner: Look let's just focus on getting Jacob back. And we'll worry about our children when the time comes.
Mick St. John: Yeah.

Beth Turner: [after Beth narrowly avoids an attack in the library] If you keep sneaking up on me like that, I am gonna MACE you one of these days!
Mick St. John: It's only a matter of time.

Beth Turner: [after Mick gets the DNA results] Hey. Family's not only about DNA.


"Moonlight: Sonata (#1.16)" (2008)
Beth Turner: This is great, I feel like I'm back at my High School Prom.
Josef Konstantin: You know Prom really wasn't that big in the 1700's. Or High School either. Plague. The Plague was big.

Josef Konstantin: Mick's not usually the jealous type.
Beth Turner: Speaking of jealous.
[watching Mick and Simone talking]
Josef Konstantin: Don't worry, Mick isn't suicidal enough to hit on my date.
Beth Turner: *Your* date? Let me guess. She was born to Hungarian Aristocracy in 1758. Danced Swan Lake with the Bolshoi Ballet, before you turned her.
Josef Konstantin: Actually Simone's was born in Recita. '80. And nobody turned her.
Beth Turner: Your girlfriend's *human*?
Josef Konstantin: She's not my girlfriend. She's one of my lawyers. Quite an up-and-comer. And a very willing source of refreshment.

Beth Turner: She just let's him drink her blood?
Mick St. John: Yeah, it's not that uncommon. A lot of vampires have human... donors. We call them "freshies."
Beth Turner: Is it like a paid arrangement or friends with benefits?
Mick St. John: Well depends on the circumstances.
Beth Turner: So I- I suppose you've had freshies.
Mick St. John: I've been a vampire for over 50 years now.
Beth Turner: I'll take that as a "yes." How many?
Mick St. John: Don't know off the top of my head. Not many.
Beth Turner: Rough guestimate.

Beth Turner: 150 years with one person, that seems like a long time.
Mick St. John: Well it depends on who you're with.
Beth Turner: How long were you and Coraline married?
Mick St. John: Technically 33 years. And that did feel like a long time.
Beth Turner: But here you are dipping your toe in the dating pool again. Do you realize this is our *fourth* official date?
Mick St. John: Define official.
Beth Turner: Any outing that *doesn't* involve dead bodies.
Mick St. John: You are such a romantic. You know that?

Beth Turner: But at least you were with Josef. It give you some kind of alibi.
Simone Walker: But then it would give them a reason to look at Josef more closely. I *can't* risk that.
Beth Turner: [looks over her shoulder then back to Simone] It's kind of weird talking about that with someone else.
Simone Walker: We're members of a really exclusive club, you and I.

Josef Konstantin: Hi Beth. We were just having drinks.
Beth Turner: I can see that!
Simone Walker: [to Josef] We should go.
Josef Konstantin: But this is so awkward... I love awkward.
Simone Walker: I know.
[Simone leads Josef out]

Beth Turner: You okay?
Mick St. John: Yeah. Well I got hit in the face with the Sacred Ass Paddle.
Beth Turner: Karma.

Beth Turner: [after Emma's taken into custody] That wasn't so bad.
Mick St. John: A homicidal desperate vampire is in custody. And she's going to need to feed soon. It's *very* bad.

Beth Turner: [to Simone] Mick would never turn me. He's kind of the anti-vampire vampire.

Beth Turner: Look for months now, you've been saying that things can't work between us. That we live in different worlds. And I didn't want to hear you but maybe you were right.
[starts to tear up]
Beth Turner: You can't come back to my world. And I'm not ready to join yours.
Mick St. John: Wait a minute. *That's* what you think this is about? You think I want to *turn* you?
Beth Turner: Wouldn't you? Eventually... What happens when I start to get old? Maybe then I'd want it too.
[sniffs]
Beth Turner: I don't want to have to make that decision. Emma and Jackson made me realize that you were right. I don't - think I can do this any more.
[Mick leaves]

[last lines]
Mick St. John: [Beth's crying, her back is to Mick] Want to know what Emma and Jackson made me realize? That YOU were right! You were right all along. This *isn't* about being a vampire or a human! This is about *us*!How we feel about each one another. Right here! Right now!
Beth Turner: The night that we first met... met again, whatever, what was I wearing?
Mick St. John: Blue jeans, white striped shirt, cream jacket.
Beth Turner: [Beth turns around faces Mick] What about my shoes?
Mick St. John: You were barefoot.
Beth Turner: How can you remember that?
Mick St. John: Because I love you.
[Beth goes to Mick; they kiss]


"Moonlight: Arrested Development (#1.5)" (2007)
Beth Turner: You just left.
Mick St. John: You were kind of tied up with your editor.
Beth Turner: You could have at least said goodbye.
Mick St. John: Good
[Beth kisses him]
Mick St. John: ... Bye.

Beth Turner: So, your friends... are they, um...
Mick St. John: What?
Beth Turner: You know...
Mick St. John: Vampires? Can't tell, can you? Scary!

Mick St. John: He's a kid! Maybe 16 years old...
Beth Turner: [disbelievingly] Sixteen?
Mick St. John: What, going on 200... I saw a picture.
Beth Turner: What an awkward age!
Mick St. John: You're not kidding. You know boys that age think about sex 20 times a minute, and that's a scientific fact? Times two centuries, that's gotta take a toll.
Beth Turner: Shouldn't we tell the police?
Mick St. John: Well, he's a vampire. It's probably healthier all 'round if we don't.

Mick St. John: Everybody's gone now, you can get up.
[helps Beth to her feet]
Mick St. John: What are you doing here?
Beth Turner: I was just about to ask you the same thing.
Mick St. John: No. The person hiding around the corner in the other room gets to go first.

Beth Turner: I mean - you've been avoiding me.
Mick St. John: [quietly outraged] No I haven't.
Beth Turner: Yes you have. Ever since, you know... the desert. You've been dodging my calls, avoiding me. And then we run into each other twice, first downtown and now here. Following two *completely* different paths, we end up in the same place. Don't you think that's a little strange?
Mick St. John: You know what? I'm not big on categorizing things into strange and not...
Beth Turner: [sarcastically] Wow. Vampires make really *bad* liars.

Mick St. John: I just don't think we need to make this into a big deal...
Beth Turner: It *is* a big deal.
[raises her wrist dramatically]
Beth Turner: I *fed* you. You were dying out there, and I brought you back to life with my blood. With my *blood*. Mick! And now we're here. Together...
Mick St. John: [frustrated] What do you want me to say? Huh? What do you want me to say?
Beth Turner: I want you to admit that something happened between us.
Mick St. John: OK.
[pauses]
Mick St. John: OK. Something happened.
Beth Turner: [disappointed, turns to walk away] If you're going to say it like that...

Beth Turner: So, how does it work, anyway?
Mick St. John: What?
Beth Turner: Just, you know... the sex thing.
Mick St. John: Your parents never told you?
Beth Turner: They somehow skipped the part involving vampires... vampires and humans, I mean.
Mick St. John: [taken aback, eyes on her and not the road]
Beth Turner: [grinning] Oh, I'm talking totally hypothetically, believe me!

Mick St. John: He's a kid, maybe 16 years old.
Beth Turner: Sixteen?
Mick St. John: Well, going on 200. I saw a picture.
Beth Turner: Ugh. Awkward age.
Mick St. John: You're not kidding. You know boys that age think about sex 20 times a minute? And that's a scientific fact.

Beth Turner: You just took off.
Mick St. John: Well, you were kinda tied up with your editor.
Beth Turner: You could at least have said good-bye.
Mick St. John: Good...
Beth Turner: [Beth kisses him]
Mick St. John: -bye.
Beth Turner: [Beth kisses him again then leaves]


"Moonlight: Click (#1.14)" (2008)
Mick St. John: So how do you want to do this?
Beth Turner: It's called dating.
Mick St. John: Right, we uh, go out and get to know each other.
Beth Turner: [starts giggling] You've known me since I was four.
Mick St. John: Okay, it's weird when you say it like that.

Mick St. John: It's not like you've slept with a vampire.
Beth Turner: [jokingly] Once in college, but I was drunk.
Mick St. John: Right.

Beth Turner: It had to have been an accident. Who would have had a reason to kill her?
Mick St. John: No one I know of! But since *I* was reviewing security, if she was in danger, I should have *known* about it!
Beth Turner: You can't think that this is your fault!
Mick St. John: I told her she could trust me. That I'd look out for her. Now she's dead!

Beth Turner: Someone tried to kill me last night.
ADA Benjamin Talbot: [into his bluetooth] Listen I'm going to have to call you back.
[to Beth]
ADA Benjamin Talbot: Seems to happen a lot.
Beth Turner: I wouldn't say "a lot."

Beth Turner: What happens when a vampire thinks he's about to be exposed?
Mick St. John: He moves on, changes cities, names. Starts all over.
Beth Turner: Have you ever done that?
Mick St. John: No. But I've been careful and lucky. I suppose one day my luck will run out. But until then...

Josef Konstantin: [after Beth shows Josef pictures of Mick getting hit by a car] So what do you want me to do about this Foster character?
Beth Turner: I thought you could handle it. You know pay him off.
Josef Konstantin: You think that'll work?
Beth Turner: No.
Josef Konstantin: [pause] Well then, you know how I'm going to handle it.
Beth Turner: Mick has protected me. Saved me more times than I can count.
Josef Konstantin: And you're returning the favor.
Beth Turner: Just don't tell him we're doing this.
Josef Konstantin: I can keep a secret.
[starts to leave then stops and turns around]
Josef Konstantin: But as long as you're involved with Mick and you work at Buzzwire, his secret will always be in danger.

Beth Turner: I quit Buzzwire.
Mick St. John: Why?
Beth Turner: Well with Maureen gone, there's not even a vineer of respectability and I'm not going to make a living feeding off people like some sort of
[Mick looks at her]
Mick St. John: Yes, well uh, I suppose we're all vampires in some form or another.
Beth Turner: [raising her glass] To vampires.
Mick St. John: [raising his glass] To us.

Beth Turner: From dating to speed dating... hmm.
Mick St. John: No, I didn't mean with me, just with me.


"Moonlight: Fever (#1.4)" (2007)
Beth: [Beth is offering Mick blood] I want to do this!
Mick St. John: [thinking] What do you do when the one thing you need to save your life... is the *one* thing... that would make life unbearable?

Beth: It's just that being on the hunt with you is kinda fun.
Mick St. John: Yeah, it's just a giant thrill ride that never ends. You know some times it does end, with terrible screams and blood shed.
Beth: Still we make a good team.

Beth Turner: You're a delicate flower Mick St. John.

Beth Turner: How long can you stay outside? How much is too much?
Mick St. John: Any is too much.
Beth Turner: You're a delicate flower Mick St. John.
[Mick smiles and turns away]

Mick St. John: I guess I am a delicate flower.
Beth Turner: I guess you are.

Beth Turner: [Mick has fled to the desert in a bid to protect Lenny, a witness in a court case, and is lying in a bathtub, the life slowly sapping away from him. Beth arrives to see him dying. She bares her neck] . I don't know how to do this but I know you need it, so...
Mick St. John: No. No! Get out!
Beth Turner: You need blood
Mick St. John: No, not yours. Not like this.
Beth Turner: I want to do this.
Mick St. John: [voiceover] What do you do when the one thing you need to save your life is the one thing that would make life unbearable?
Beth Turner: I know you won't kill me and I know you won't try to turn me either. I've got this vampire friend who has been explaining this stuff.
Mick St. John: [takes her forearm] . At some point you're going to have to stop me.
[sinks his teeth into her arm]

Beth Turner: I like being on the hunt with you.
Mick St. John: It's a giant thrill ride that never ends.


"Moonlight: B.C. (#1.6)" (2007)
Beth Turner: [earnestly] I need this microchip inserted in my hand.
Mick St. John: [incredulously sarcastic] Of *course* you do.

Beth Turner: [high on Black Crystal] Do you feel like this all the time?
Mick St. John: [dubious] I dunno... I doubt it.

Beth Turner: I can't believe this double standard. I had to spend two hours getting myself up to club admissionability, and you're just wearing the same thing you always wear.
Mick St. John: Yes well, perpetual coolness is the vampire's curse.

Beth Turner: You're gonna do that vampire jumping thing, aren't you?
Mick St. John: I don't have a chip!
Beth Turner: Just being human is so lame.

Beth Turner: Can you feel me Mick? Do you feel like this all the time?
Mick St. John: I doubt it.

Beth Turner: [Mick is holding a thrashing Beth in his arms tightly so she won't hurt herself as they stand in his shower with ice cold water pouring down. Beth high on Black Crystal pleads to Mick as she tries to seduce him] Turn me.
Beth Turner: [Mick is floored by her request. And is fighting his growing attraction to her] It's the drug. It's the drug.


"Moonlight: Fated to Pretend (#1.13)" (2008)
Beth Turner: How long will it last? Until you turn back?
Mick St. John: I don't know. Six months, maybe. Maybe less. But I'm making every day count. I don't want to have any regrets.

Mick St. John: At the funeral, you were wearing his ring.
Beth Turner: Yes. Yes, I was. But um, I realized even if he had proposed to me, I wouldn't have said yes.
Mick St. John: Why not?
Beth Turner: There's someone else. Has been for a while. I care about him a lot. And I think it's time he figured out what he's going to do about it.

Mick St. John: Donuts.
[takes a donut and takes a bite]
Mick St. John: Not bad.
Beth Turner: How long has it been since you've had a donut?
Mick St. John: 1952.
Beth Turner: Two words: Krispy Kreme.

Beth Turner: Are you asking me out on a date?
Mick St. John: Isn't that what humans do?

Mick St. John: Your name came up in connection with a story that Maureen was working on.
Josef Konstantin: Was her body found in the La Brea Tar pits?
Beth Turner: No.
Josef Konstantin: That was the only person I killed this week.

Beth Turner: You're a delicate flower, Mick St. John.


"Moonlight: No Such Thing as Vampires (#1.1)" (2007)
Beth Turner: Right. Blood cult. So, we're talking vampires?
[laughs]
Beth Turner: I know... they don't exist. But something has to explain all the killing and the Gotharama around here, I mean, obviously she had a thing for vampires.
Mick St. John: Yeah, I guess they're back in style.
[pauses]
Mick St. John: You know, some people actually find them attractive?
Beth Turner: [disbelievingly] Really?
Mick St. John: [chastened and deadpan] Yeah.

Beth Turner: [looks around for Mick, who's disappeared... again] Stop doing that!

[Steve is pinning a mic onto Beth's bra]
Beth Turner: You're taking a long time putting that mic on.
Steve Balfour: Just trying to get it exactly right here.
Beth Turner: Does that include feeling me up?

Beth Turner: [first meeting] Do I know you?
Mick St. John: You tell me.
Beth Turner: You're a cop. Right?
Mick St. John: No.
Beth Turner: Reporter?
Mick St. John: Nope.
Beth Turner: We've met before. You look very familiar.
Mick St. John: Well maybe I've just got one of those faces.

Beth Turner: Do I know you?
Mick St. John: You tell me.
Beth Turner: You're a cop, right?
Mick St. John: No.
Beth Turner: Reporter.
Mick St. John: Nope.
Beth Turner: We've met before, you look very familiar.
Mick St. John: Well, maybe I've just got one of those faces.
Beth Turner: Ok. Question: what do you like better? "Vampire Slaying Rocks L.A-"
Mick St. John: There's no such thing as vampires.
Beth Turner: I don't think the girl in the fountain would agree. I mean-
[turns back and he's gone]


"Moonlight: Fleur De Lis (#1.9)" (2007)
Josef Konstantin: You have to understand, Mick and Coraline's relationship was one of those terrifying, completely self-destructive freakshows that you spend your whole life searching for knowing it can only end in one or both of you dead.
Beth Turner: That's your idea of love?
Josef Konstantin: What can I tell you, I'm a romantic.

Beth Turner: [Beth is busy breaking into Morgan's apartment while Mick serves as a decoy -having Morgan help him with a case involving infidelity-as Beth picks the lock we hear in a voiceover] I had an old boyfriend in college who taught me how to chug a beer in one sitting and as a party trick how to pick a lock. Funny how things come in handy.

Beth Turner: [Beth is snooping around Morgan's apartment which is a mess. Beth is thinking in a voice over] I read that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they leave their house. So far all I knew about Morgan was she had great taste in shoes.

Coraline: [Coraline who is going under the name Morgan Vincent is working with Mick as a photographer and is getting impatient as she watches their subject because Mick is on the phone] Hurry up! The clothes are about to hit the floor!
Mick St. John: I'll be right there!
Beth Turner: [Beth over hears this and says jealously over the phone at Mick] Whose clothes are about to hit the floor?


"Moonlight: Love Lasts Forever (#1.11)" (2008)
Beth Turner: Save him. Please, for me. Save him!
Mick St. John: He's human, Beth. Okay.
[holds up his bloodied hands]
Mick St. John: THIS is what happens!

Beth Turner: Because it's such a curse. I *know* you tell me all the time.
Mick St. John: You don't know! Beth, how could you know?
Beth Turner: If you hate what you are so much, then why do you go on living?
Mick St. John: [thinking] You make me want to.
[speaking]
Mick St. John: I'm not really sure. I'm not really sure.

Beth Turner: What if that were me lying there instead of Josh, seconds away from death, would you have saved me? Would you have saved me?
Mick St. John: I would've done the same thing.
[thinking]
Mick St. John: She asked me something I asked myself over and over again. The truth is I don't know what I'd do. What do know is at the end of the day, not a lot separates life and death, only one thing: eternity.

Beth Turner: You really hate being a vampire don't you?
Mick St. John: Well, hate's a strong word. So yeah, that works.


"Moonlight: Dr. Feelgood (#1.3)" (2007)
Beth Turner: [timidly] So, do you... bite people's necks and... suck the blood out?
Mick St. John: Actually, I get most of my blood from the blood bank.
Beth Turner: [stunned] Oh.
[primly]
Beth Turner: The Red Cross does not mention that in their literature.
Mick St. John: I don't think they know.

Mick St. John: And "wait in the car" means...?
Beth Turner: Yeah, 'cause that worked out so well last time!

Mick St. John: [referring to the stake protruding from his chest] The stake. Take it... out.
Beth Turner: Uhn. OK.
[grapples with the stake]
Beth Turner: Maybe it's like a piece of glass, you're supposed to wait until we...
Mick St. John: [emphatically] Take it... OUT!

Beth Turner: So how long can you stay outside? How much sun is too much?
Mick St. John: Any is too much.
Beth Turner: You're a delicate flower Mick St.John.
[Mick smiles]


"Moonlight: 12:04 AM (#1.8)" (2007)
Mick St. John: I would recommend not going into the office.
Beth Turner: Okay...
Mick St. John: Or upstairs... or through the grey door.
Beth Turner: Wow! This all sounds so Alice in Wonderland.
Mick St. John: Beware of the bottles that say "drink me"

Beth Turner: This is really nice of you.
Mick St. John: Well, mi casa es su casa.
Mick St. John: That's Spanish, by the way, for keep her out of my stuff.


"Moonlight: Out of the Past (#1.2)" (2007)
Beth Turner: I keep dreaming about you. Why?
[she walks over to Mick]
Mick St. John: [vamped out] Please, don't look at me.
Beth Turner: [looks at the state that Mick's in] Oh my god.
[Mick turns to look at her; his eyes silver and blood drips down his chin; she gasps]
Beth Turner: What are you?
Mick St. John: I'm a vampire.

Beth Turner: Oh my God. What are you?
Mick St. John: I'm a vampire.


"Moonlight: Unaired Pilot" (2007)
Beth Turner: You were at the other crime scene.
Mick St. John: Yeah.
Beth Turner: Do you have some connection with the case or are you just a crime scene junkie?

Mick St. John: I'm working the case on my own.
Beth Turner: How come?
Mick St. John: Because I don't like seeing people get away with this kind of thing.
Beth Turner: You don't think the police will catch whoever's behind this?
Mick St. John: They might. In time. But they're hamstrung by rules and regulations. I'm not.
Beth Turner: So, you work outside of the law. Is that what you're saying?
Mick St. John: Let's just say I work parallel to it.
