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: Don't worry, Dad, I'll be careful.
Josef Konstantin: Don't call me that.
Mick St. John: Well you did turn me.
Josef Konstantin: Return, okay. Return. And you were going to become a vampire again anyway. I'm not your sire.
Mick St. John: Kind of my step-sire.
Josef Konstantin: No.
Guillermo: [sniffing the air as Mick enters autopsy] Mick! Welcome back to the land of the unliving.
Mick St. John: [to a pair of vampire paparazzi] You should be ashamed of yourselves! Talk about blood suckers!
Mick St. John: [speaking of Beth] Yes. She uh - I think we're dating.
Tierney Tate: You *think*?
Mick St. John: Well it's complicated.
Tierney Tate: Can you be yourself with her?
Mick St. John: Mostly, yeah.
Tierney Tate: Then uncomplicate it!
Mick St. John: It's a one way street.
Tierney Tate: Yeah. I'm going one way.
Mick St. John: The wrong way!
Mick St. John: Being human again, however briefly, put me back in the world. And it made me realize, I'm tired of hiding. Beth was right when she said being a vampire doesn't have to define me. Maybe I can use my job to live in both worlds. But jumping into *this*... makes me feel like I've gone from the Minor Leagues straight to the World Series. Welcome to Hollywood.
Tierney Tate: I get it! I'm a celebrity. I chose to live my life in the public eye, but I *at least* have to have a couple people I can *trust*.
Mick St. John: That's why you hired me. To make sure you trust the right people.
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!
Mick St. John: Can you keep your colleagues off of me?
Marshall: In the name of vampire solidarity, we'd love to help but...
Clint: You're celebrity PI now. You're the story, dude.
Scott Walsh: I found out she was hiding something from me, okay? I was upset. The two of us, we didn't have secrets.
Mick St. John: Everybody has secrets.
Scott Walsh: Not me and Tierany.
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.
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.
Mick St. John: [under his breath as they're being chased by Papparrazzi] I can't die. I can't die. I can't die.
Tierney Tate: What?
Mick St. John: Nothing. I'm fine.
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.
