"Gargoyles: The Reckoning (#2.48)" (1996)
Brooklyn: This tin can won't save you!
Demona: Oh, but it's a very clever tin can.
[shocks Brooklyn]

Angela: Stop this fighting.
Demona: YOU! I saw you in Paris. Who are you? I know *every* remaining gargoyle.
Goliath: She is not your concern!
[Attacks Demona]

Demona: You again! Who are you?
Angela: Angela. Your daughter.
Demona: My daughter? How *dare* you mock me! I have no daughter!
Angela: Yes you do. The clan's eggs survived. You and Goliath are my biological parents. I'm told there's a resemblence.
Demona: My daughter... After so long, can it really be?

Demona: Know this young one, humans have no place in a gargoyle clan. Goliath has lost sight of this simple truth. If you are truly my daughter, we must always be there for one another, that is what it means to belong to a clan.

Thailog: It is time to get rid of all of you. Starting with her!
[Aims his weapon at Angela]
Demona: [Demona steps in front of Thailog] NO! She belongs to me!
Thailog: My dear, you've known she was your daughter. Since before we staged your capture. And you *still* have not been able to turn her.
Angela: You knew the whole time?
Demona: I had to make you understand.
Angela: I understand perfectly. All this was a charade. Staged to turn me against my father! To trap to destroy my clan! You *are* capable of anything. I hate you!

Demona: [Freeing the clan] Goliath! Save our daughter!

Thailog: Do you wish to perish?
Demona: My vengeance is all you've left me!

[after Thailog breaks Demona out, she takes aim at Fang]
Fang: Hey, Demona... you know, I've always respected you as a fellow inmate... some of my best friends are half-gargoyle, half-human babes with bad attitudes!
[Demona blasts open his cell]
Demona: He's a fool, but he may be of some use.
Fang: I can work with that!


"Gargoyles: The Mirror (#2.5)" (1995)
Demona: That's it! That's what I want! If you cannot get rid of all the humans, then at least rid me of that human: Elisa Maza!
Puck: Did you say *that* human or that *human*?
[Demona glares at him]
Puck: Oh, never mind, I'll figure it out. This just might be fun after all.

Puck: Is this how you welcome all your guests?
Demona: Any who would turn on me. And you're not a guest. You serve the human, now you can serve me.
Puck: Serving humans is fun, they have a sense of humor. You have none.
Demona: Perhaps not, Puck, but I have you.

Demona: I want you to get rid of the humans. ALL of them.
Puck: Does this look like Aladdin's lamp? I have limits, after all.

Demona: I would know you no matter what your form, Goliath! Take care of them Puck.
Puck: As you wish... Humans love a battle hearty/So does Puck, come on, let's party!

[last lines; after Puck has cast a spell that will let Demona walk in sunlight, without turning to stone]
Demona: The sun... it's glorious! I never thought that it could feel so good.
[She walks past a mirror in her house, and sees that Puck has transformed her into a human woman]
Demona: Nooooo!
[glass shatters]

Demona: [mulling over her wish] I'm too vulnerable during the day. I don't want to turn to stone anymore.
Puck: Of course! You want to stroll down Fifth Avenue in the sunshine. I'm sure you'll fit right in.

Demona: You're no match for me as a pitiful human.
Goliath: My strength has never depended on brute force.
[Elisa knocks Demona down]
Goliath: But on true friends.


"Gargoyles: High Noon (#2.13)" (1995)
MacBeth: We don't need to wait for sunset. You're still thinking like a Gargoyle.
Demona: I *am* a Gargoyle! Although this form does prove useful at times.

MacBeth: Is it supposed to hurt that much? I thought you said the changeling, Puck, turns you into a human during the day as a gift.
Demona: Puck's gifts always come with a price. My consolation is that our magical link allows you to suffer as well.
MacBeth: Just get on with it.

Elisa Maza: [Demona lands at the Clock Tower just before Sun rise] Spending the day here, Demona? The sun's about to come up.
Demona: Is it really?
[changes to her human form]
Elisa Maza: If you're human, then you're subject to human laws.
[draws her weapon]
Elisa Maza: You're under arrest! You have the right to remain silent!
Demona: If I remain silent, you'll never see your precious Goliath again!

Demona: I'll bring Goliath and the others to Belveder Castle in Central Park at high noon. If you show up, you still won't save them, and it will certainly cost you your life. But if you don't show up, Goliath will see what human loyalty is *really* worth. Either way I win!

Coldstone: I never dreamt I'd see the sun. Why haven't I changed to stone?
Demona: Because you are no longer a Gargoyle. Day or night, you are Coldstone!

MacBeth: [Demona's aiming a weapon at Elisa] Surely you're not afraid to face her, hand-to-hand?
Demona: I fear no human!
[drops the weapon]
Demona: Come, Detective! Goliath cannot save you now.
Elisa Maza: I'm here to save *him*!


"Gargoyles: City of Stone: Part 4 (#2.12)" (1995)
Demona: You're too late. You can't save them. No one can!
Macbeth: I'm not here for them. I'm here for *you*. I want it over between us!

Macbeth: Canmore, your father was an evil man who deserved his fate. But you were just a boy then, so I offer you one last opportunity for forgiveness and mercy.
Demona: He will not require it. But *you* will!
Macbeth: [Gasps] Demona? First desertion, and now betrayal! WHY?
Demona: I merely offer a sample of what you planned for me.
Macbeth: I planned for you to govern by my side. And now because of YOU, my kingdom is in flames!

Macbeth: I have hunted you through the centuries for my vengeance.
Demona: Take off that mask. You're not fooling anyone, MacBeth.

Demona: Let's not start that again. You blame me, I blame you. Aren't you tired of talking about it?
Macbeth: I'm not here to talk!
Demona: Then what? You know the rules. Killing me will get you nothing but your own death.
Macbeth: After this long a life time. I have no fear of that. I have no desire to live in the world you're creating. Revenge is a dish best served cold. And I've waited for this meal for 900 years, Demona!

Goliath: You have learned nothing.
Demona: Nothing but your lies. I will still have my revenge!

Demona: The access code is... "alone."


"Gargoyles: Temptation (#1.7)" (1994)
Demona: You don't know the depths to which humanity can sink, my young friend. But I do. Over the centuries I've seen horrors that would blast your soul! Come let me show you what mankind is really like.

Demona: [as she's fighting Goliath who's still under a spell] Even with no will of your own, you're a force to be reckoned with.

Demona: Goliath, destroy him! I hold the book, you *must* obey me!
Brooklyn: You hold the book, Demona. But *I* hold the spell! Goliath take her!

Demona: Don't be afraid. I just want to talk.
Brooklyn: Yeah. Last time we met you just wanted to blow me away with a bazooka.
Demona: That was then.
Brooklyn: This is goodbye.
[Prepares to glide off]
Demona: Wait, please! I'm sorry Brooklyn. I know I shouldn't have shot at you. I was crazy with grief and rage. If you only knew what I've gone through for hundreds of years dealing with the humans.
Brooklyn: Hundreds of years. I thought you were under the sleep spell like we were.
Demona: It's a long story. Centuries long. I'd like to tell you about it. If you'll let me.
Brooklyn: I don't trust you, Demona.

Brooklyn: But not all humans are like that. Elisa is our friend.
Demona: Perhaps the policewoman is the exception that proves the rule. But can she keep you safe from the rest of humanity? Only we can protect each other, Brooklyn. We must be united and strong. And willing to deal with the humans as they would deal with us! Goliath thinks we can hide amidst the humans and hope for their understanding. This is not possible.

Goliath: Demona! So you did survive.
Demona: I *always* survive!


"Gargoyles: Long Way to Morning (#1.11)" (1995)
Hudson: Give it up, girl. You can't win.
Demona: I'm smarter, stronger and I'm younger than you! Your pride will cost you your *life*!
Hudson: But I know something you don't. Something that only comes with age. I know how to wait.
[the sun rises and they turn to stone]

Demona: [as she's fighting Hudson] I would have ended this quickly! But now you'll *suffer*!

Demona: [after shooting Elisa] You've just been poisoned. In 24 hours, you'll be dead. I have the antidote. Tell Goliath I'll be at the Old Opera House in the Village. Ciao.
[Flies off]

Hudson: [Watching the sun rise] Yes! But I know about something that you don't. Something that only comes with age.
Demona: Yeah? What's that?
Hudson: Patience.
[Hudson, Demona, and Goliath all turn into stone]

Demona: [angrily] I don't know who the bigger fool is? Him for leading, you for following, or me for not leaving you both.

Demona: I don't know who the bigger fool is? Him for leading, you for following, or me for not leaving you both.


"Gargoyles: Vows (#2.8)" (1995)
Demona: [after giving Goliath half the Phoenix Gate] Take this as token of my love. Cherish it always, as I cherish my half. Upon this I pledge my heart to you forever.
Goliath: I accept your token my... Angel of the Night. And vow that you and I are one... now and forever.

Goliath: Demona...
Demona: I'm only attending this farce because Xanatos insisted. And I need to keep him as an ally. I neither know nor care why you're here.
Goliath: This is not the first wedding ritual we've attended together. Don't you remember?
Demona: I'm not interested in reminscing!

Demona: What am I to do?
Goliath: Do nothing.
Demona: Nothing?
Goliath: Do not worry. Do not wait or look for this catastrophe. Live in the moment. Attend the petty angers and jealousies that fill your heart. Fortify yourself with love and trust. And you need not fear this future. But most of all fulfill the vows of love you make for they can surely save you.
Demona: I shall! You have my oath.
Goliath: [picking up the older version of Demona] I had hers once too.

Demona: Get away from me, you sentimental fool. You may have prevented me from altering the past, but you failed too. You see I have clear memories of your little inspirational about keeping my vows of love. I *never* forgot it. Obviously history is immutable.
Goliath: More is the pity.

Demona: [Referring to Young Goliath who's wounded] Believe me I know exactly how you feel. But you cannot trust him. He's weak. He cares more for the humans than for our clan. The greatest favor you can do him would be to put him out of our misery forever! You must know I'm right. Can't you see I'm right? I am what you will become!
Young Demona: I will never be like you!
Demona: I do not wish to hurt you.
Young Demona: And I do not wish to *be* you!


"Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles: Generations (#1.9)" (????)
Demona: [fighting Quarrymen] I'll have your heads for this treachery!

Goliath: Angela. Demona. We lost him. It was as if he vanished.
Brooklyn: [to Demona] What were you doing here anyway?
Angela: Aren't you going to thank her for saving us?
Demona: He *won't*! Farewell, my daughter.

Angela: Mother so much has happened. But I think you can change with my help. If you want it badly enough.
Demona: What makes you think *I'm* the one that needs changing?
Angela: [disappointed] Maybe Goliath was right.
Demona: I'm sorry, Angela. I've been fighting so long I guess I'm a little quick to attack. I'd like you to understand my life a little better. If we can't be family, can't we at least be friends?
Angela: I'd like that very much.

Demona: This changes nothing! Goliath will be the death of us all!
Angela: You used me.
Demona: It started that way, but now I wouldn't hurt you for the world.
Angela: Save it for your next performance, Demona!
[leaves crying]

Lexington: What about her?
Goliath: You will not go free to attack us again.
Demona: Oh, Goliath, you ought to know me better than that.


"Gargoyles: Sanctuary (#2.29)" (1995)
Demona: [Noticing a figure flying past] In here my love.
[Goliath lands]
Demona: Goliath! New York is your protectorate! Paris is mine!

Demona: It was love at first flight.
Goliath: Love, Demona? You no longer know the meaning of the word. Hate is what you live for now. No doubt you're turning Thailog against the human race, just as you tried to turn me.

Thailog: "Nightstone Unlimited." I like the sound of it.
Demona: The millions you stole from Xanatos and the treasure I've hoarded over the millenia are now incorporated. The partners are: Madmoiselle Dominique Destine, the mystery woman who is nowhere to be seen after dark, and Mr. Alexander Thailog, the reclusive financial wizard no one ever sees.

MacBeth: Dominque there are things about me that you do not know. Where to begin?
Demona: Well if we are going to bare our souls, why don't I go first?
[Sunsets, she starts turning into a gargoyle]
MacBeth: [in a pained voice] What's happening to you? The pain!
Demona: When we're this close together, Mon Cheri. We feel each other's pain. It's part of a magical pact we avowed long ago!

MacBeth: The only way for me to die is for one of us to slay the other. In which case *both* perish.
Demona: Sad but true. I guess I'll just have to keep you locked away and hidden until the end of time.


"Gargoyles: City of Stone: Part 3 (#2.11)" (1995)
Demona: We must find another lair!
Demona's Second: The hunting there was good.
Demona: Yes. But we are still the prey!

Young Canmore: You are are the cause of all this
[Charges at Demona with a knife]
Young Canmore: You- you monster!
Demona: [Demona grabs his wrist and throws away the knife] MacBeth has spared your life, boy. Don't throw it away!

Macbeth: Humans will learn to respect you.
Demona: I would rather they fear me.
Macbeth: They'll do that too, Demona.
Demona: "Demona," I like the sound of that.

Demona: But first, I'll take care of some unfinished business.
[Approaches Elisa with a mace]
Demona: I thought I'd rid myself of you long ago, human. Fortunately, that mistake is easily rectified.


"Gargoyles: Awakening: Part 4 (#1.4)" (1994)
David Xanatos: Goliath, there's someone I'd like you to meet. An old acquaintance I believe.
Goliath: Who?...
[Goliath gasps]
Goliath: You're alive!
Demona: Goliath, my love.

Goliath: With you alive, I can start to live again as well.
Demona: As you said, you and I are one now and forever.

Demona: We've dreamed for a thousand years Goliath. It's time for our dreams to come true.

Goliath: My angel, it really is you.
Demona: Oh, Goliath. All the days I've dreamed of you and this moment.
[Xanatos clears his throat]
David Xanatos: I'm very happy for you both.
Demona: This man has brought us together my love. We owe our reunion to David Xanatos.
Goliath: But how - You were shattered by the vikings.
Demona: No. I feared for your safety so I left the castle to find you but I lost my way and the sun rose before I could return.
Goliath: How did you survive all these centuries?
Demona: When I returned to the castle the Magus had already turned you to stone. I begged him to cast his spell on me so that we might awaken together.
David Xanatos: I saw her a year ago and was so impressed I acquired her for my private collection. Then after I woke *you* up it seemed plausible that a trip to castle might have the same effect on her.
Goliath: With you alive, I can start to live again as well.
Demona: As you said, you and I are one. Now and forever.


"Gargoyles: Reawakening (#1.13)" (1995)
Coldstone: You said that destroying my brother is the only way to survive. Is that all there is for us, mere survival?
Demona: Isn't that enough?
Goliath: No. Gargoyles protect. It is our nature. Our purpose. To lose that is to be corrupt. Empty. Lifeless.

Coldstone: What am I?
Demona: You are cold stone brought to life.
Coldstone: Coldstone?

Goliath: *You* told him these lies! I LIVED FOR MY CLAN!
Demona: And they *died* for you! Smashed to dust by the humans you trusted!

Demona: We have each created our own clans now, Goliath. You have yours. And I have mine.
Goliath: You have no clan. You don't know the *meaning* of the word!


"Gargoyles: Hunter's Moon: Part 2 (#2.51)" (1996)
Demona: They hunted me for ten centuries. It's time to put an end to it!
Lexington: Those three are immortal like you?
Demona: No. The vendetta passes from generation to generation. They wiped out the last gargoyles in Scotland. And for a thousand years they have hunted me. Why, I have no idea.
Goliath: They nearly killed our daughter.
Demona: They will pay!

Goliath: I do not want to escape. I want vengeance!
Demona: Perhaps you can have a little of both.
Goliath: There's no such thing as a "little vengeance."
Demona: At last you're thinking like a true gargoyle. But you're letting your anger cloud your judgement. We're on their turf, and we've lost the element of surprise. Escape is the priority now.


"Gargoyles: Future Tense (#2.43)" (1996)
Demona: Once we're inside, you must rescue Angela, and escape with her?
Goliath: Escape? To where?
Demona: As far away as you can. You must protect our daughter. Give her the Phoenix Gate so she can hide in the past.
Goliath: Hiding is never a solution.

David Xanatos: Well, Demona. I see Puck's spell of transformation even works in cyberspace. You didn't turn to stone. Which means... you'll suffer!
[Blasts Angela and Brooklyn]
Demona: NO! My daughter! My love!


"Gargoyles: Awakening: Part 5 (#1.5)" (1994)
Demona: I have a name, too, Goliath. The humans gave it to me long ago. You should know it before you die. I am... Demona.

Goliath: I have promised to meet a friend. I'll be back soon.
Demona: A friend? Who? Not one of us.
Goliath: No. A human. Elisa Maza.
Demona: Aside from Xanatos, we have no human friends, nor should we. Humanity is our enemy, Goliath. I thought you learned that a millennium ago.
Goliath: I cannot make war upon an entire world. Doesn't Xanatos prove that there are good humans as well as bad?
Demona: Can you forgive the humans for what they did to our kind?
Goliath: The ones responsible for that have been dead for a thousand years.
Demona: Then their descendants shall pay! I will have blood for blood!
Goliath: You said the centuries have changed me. They've changed you, too. You've become hard, unforgiving. You're not as I remember you. I'm going to see my friend now.
Demona: So be it.


"Gargoyles: Avalon: Part 3 (#2.23)" (1995)
Goliath: [after Demona fires on Gabriel and Angela] No! They are our clan's children! Demona, I know you hate humans, but these are innocent gargoyles.
Demona: No.
[breaks the spell]
Demona: It cannot be.
Goliath: And you MacBeth, does you much vaunted sense of honor include the slaughter of innocents?
[MacBeth breaks free]
Goliath: The Archmage is *using* you!
Archmage: [Appears and chuckles] Oh, you're very good Goliath. But appealing to their better natures won't help you. They are *my* creatures now!

Demona: How cozy. Now you can all die together.
[a shot goes off close to Demona]
Elisa Maza: Wouldn't you rather have me?
Demona: Always!


"Gargoyles: Awakening: Part 1 (#1.1)" (1994)
Captain of the Guard: Their leader swore they'd be back. It's best to harry them far away and not take that chance!
Goliath: ...Very well. But *I* shall do it! I can scare those *cowards* away without any help.
Demona: That's too dangerous for you! Let me come along at least!
Goliath: You and the others will stay with the castle. You are my best warrior. I leave you in command.
Demona: No! I cannot let you!
Goliath: I won't go alone. Remember you and I are one, now and forever.

Demona: Are you blind? They were not at fault. The humans were!
Goliath: No matter who was at fault. I cannot condone fighting between their people and ours. I will make it up to them... later. I have business to attend to.


"Gargoyles: Shadows of the Past (#2.24)" (1995)
Demona: [disembodied voice] Goliath join me in the dark.
Goliath: No. Leave me alone!
Demona: Goliath, don't abandon us.


"Gargoyles: Hunter's Moon: Part One (#2.50)" (1996)
Henchman: We, uh, we didn't get it Ms. Destine. The cops...
Ms. Destine: WHAT? You incompotent fool!
[Grabs him]
Henchman: Wait, please.
[Destine notices it's almost sunset and release him]
Ms. Destine: You're lucky I treat my employees with compassion. Now get out!


"Gargoyles: City of Stone: Part 2 (#2.10)" (1995)
Gillecomgain: [after Demona unmasks him] Look closely creature. This was *your* handiwork. Done when I was just a boy. Remember?
Demona: No.
