Rene Lenier: [talking to Jason in jail] Ain't like you went and killed a bunch of *innocent* women.
Rene Lenier: They were fangbangers! If you hadn't done it, just a matter of time...
Rene Lenier: [in his thoughts, about the killer] She knows all this, how come she hasn't gone to the cops and gotten her brother out of that cell?
Sookie Stackhouse: [snapping] 'Cause I tried that and so far the cops have done didly squat to protect me and my family.
Tara Thornton: [seeing her breakfast] This isn't food. This is sculpture.
Tara Thornton: I didn't just wreck my car. I totaled my whole life. All of it.
Maryann: Well, I suppose that's one way of looking at it. Personally I see your situation as an opportunity.
Maryann: [to Tara] Maybe life has just cleared out all the things that weren't working for you. Now you've got room to rebuild. Decide exactly what you want your life to look like and make that happen.
Orry Dawson: [to Jason in jail] Officially the church can't condone what you did. You took the lives of four women. Women who had tainted themselves and their race. But still human women. Hey.
[motions for him to come closer]
Orry Dawson: But we do recognize that even though your methods may have been flawed, your intentions were pure.
Jason: [utterly confused] I got no idea what you're talking about.
Orry Dawson: That's smart. Don't admit to anything.
Tara Thornton: [about Maryann] So, collecting stray black people, that some kind of hobby of hers?
Eggs: [laughing] She's right about you. You are funny.
Tara Thornton: Oh, yeah? What else she tell you about me?
Eggs: Oh, she said, um, you crashed your car with a gallon of whiskey in your lap.
Tara Thornton: Yeah. It was vodka. Really cheap vodka.
Eggs: Hey, I'm-I'm not judging you... Believe me. I- When Maryann found me, I was, uh, well, let's just say I was a hell of alot worse off than you. She's a miracle worker. You'll see.
Tara Thornton: Yeah, well. I won't be stickin' around that long.
Eggs: That's too bad.
Tara Thornton: My mama, when she thought somethin' was too good to be true, sh-she'd say, "Satan in a Sunday hat." That's exactly what this is.
Eggs: You know it took me a long time to stop looking over my shoulder, too. But there are good people in this world. Sometimes, good shit happens.
Rosie: Can I buy you a beer? Show my appreciation.
Andy Bellefluer: That's alright, Rosie. I was just doin' my job.
Terry Bellefleur: I've known killers and Jason ain't one.
Sookie Stackhouse: Thank you, Terry.
Terry Bellefleur: Nobody ever listens to me, but they should.
Rene Lenier: [after she drops the tea] Sookie, you alright?
Sookie Stackhouse: [nervous] I'm so jumpy these days.
Rene Lenier: Let me help you with that.
Sookie Stackhouse: No. I'm gonna go get a mop.
Lafayette Reynolds: [seeing the half eaten food] These fucker's palettes are as backwoods as they brains.
Sookie Stackhouse: You know what's kinda funny is that your thoughts don't have an accent.
Rene Lenier: That must be hard on you, living with that.
Sookie Stackhouse: It is hard, sometimes. You have no idea how sick and twisted some people are.
Rene Lenier: Oh, lord. I can believe that. Yes, ma'am.
Tara Thornton: Sookie?
Sookie Stackhouse: [wakes up, medicated] Tara. You look so pretty. Like someone turned a light on under your skin.
Sam Merlotte: [smiling] Hospital gave her pain meds. She's-she's a little loopy.
Tara Thornton: [in tears] Didn't you listen when I said I'd lose my shit if anything ever happened to you?
Sookie Stackhouse: Don't lose your shit. I'm fine. Did Sam tell you that he saved my life? He turned into a dog and bit Rene.
Lafayette Reynolds: [laughs] Well, shit. I'm gonna need some of them drugs they gave you.
Sam Merlotte: Okay, you guys. We should let her rest.
Sookie Stackhouse: Sam, you need to let people see the real you. 'Cause you're kind and brave. There's nothin there not to love.
Sam Merlotte: [smiles and winks] Right back at you.
Sheriff Bud Dearborne: [to Andy about Jason] You brought him in, you let him go.
Arlene Fowler: [pacing, anxious] Oh, sweet Jesus! Please forgive me. I had no idea, Sookie. I swear!
Sookie Stackhouse: [still medicated] Of course you didn't.
Arlene Fowler: I brought him around my kids. I slept in the bed with him every night and all that time, it was nothing but lies. I mean his name, his accent. God! You think you know someone. How could I not know?
Sookie Stackhouse: None of us did. Don't blame yourself, honey.
Arlene Fowler: Can't help it. I told you to stay out of my thoughts. Isn't that why you didn't listen in on Rene?
Sookie Stackhouse: It was like he kept that part of himself locked away in some dark corner of his mind.
Arlene Fowler: [going to her] Sookie, I am so sorry. I want you to promise me somethin', okay?
Sookie Stackhouse: Okay.
Arlene Fowler: Someday, if I ever find another man, I want you to look inside his head and tell me everything that's in there.
Sookie Stackhouse: Uh... Arlene, it-it doesn't really work that way.
Arlene Fowler: Just promise me, okay? 'Cause I have the worst taste in men. Is-is Bill goin' to be okay?
Sookie Stackhouse: [her faces crumbles as she cries] I don't think so... no.
Arlene Fowler: [hugging her and crying] Oh, honey. Oh, sweet baby.
Lafayette Reynolds: [to Sam] Well, I'm goin' to head on over to the bar. Make sure Terry's not PTSD'ing all over my clam chowder.
Sam Merlotte: [recognizing her] What the hell are you doing here?
Maryann: [almost laughing] Did you think I wasn't gonna find you? You silly, silly dog.
Jason: I do know that I'm meant to do somethin' important with my life and as soon as I find out what that is, I ain't gonna fuck it up.
Sookie Stackhouse: [happy] That's good.
Sookie Stackhouse: [opening the door and seeing Bill, all better] You're alive?
Bill Compton: Well, technically no. But I am healed. I fed.
Sookie Stackhouse: Would you like to come in?
Bill Compton: Yes.
[enters as she closes the door behind him. seeing her bruised face, he tries to bite his wrist]
Sookie Stackhouse: No.
Sookie Stackhouse: Without my blood, it'll take weeks for you to heal.
Sookie Stackhouse: I don't care. After everything I just need to feel human right now.
Bill Compton: I failed you.
Sookie Stackhouse: [smiling] You were willing to sacrifice yourself to save me.
Bill Compton: But if I'd just been...
Sookie Stackhouse: My life is too short for all that.
[they kiss passionately]
Tara Thornton: You know you're about as subtle as a flying brick. Maryann says if you want some thing, you don't wait for it to come to you. You demand it.
Sam Merlotte: [annoyed] Do me a favor. Don't quote Maryann to me.
Tara Thornton: Well excuse me for givin' a damn.
Tara Thornton: This one time Lafayette went to Marthaville for the night, he ended up go-go dancin' in Palm Beach for like eight months.
Sam Merlotte: [rolling his eyes] Fantastic!
Terry Bellefleur: People disappear all the time, but they're never really gone. The good parts of them always stay put.
Arlene Fowler: I hope you're right about that, Terry.
Terry Bellefleur: Your hair's like a sunset after a bomb went off... Pretty.
Jessica: [enters with Eric and Pam] Hi, daddy.
Bill Compton: [furious] What is this?
Eric Northman: There are favors and there are... favors.
Pam: She is extremely annoying.
Bill Compton: You can't do this! We had a deal!
Eric Northman: Yeah, well now the terms have changed. She's yours, unless you wanna give me Sookie?
[laughs as he draws his fangs]
Eric Northman: It's just a suggestion. Though a few nights with this one may change your mind.
Pam: Good luck.
Eric Northman: [in Swedish, as they leave] O du ljuva frihet.
[translation: Oh sweet freedom]
Jessica: [as Bill turns to her] So, who's good to eat around here?
[Sookie grabs the shotgun by the fireplace. She turns and points it at Rene]
Rene Lenier: [Without his accent] What do you think you're doing?
[She cocks the shotgun]
Rene Lenier: You're not gonna shoot me.
[She pulls the trigger. The gun clicks. Rene holds up the two shells]
Rene Lenier: Whoops. Told ya.
Rene Lenier: [thinking as he looks around for Sookie] I'm gonna rip your throat out and fuck your dead face.
