Frank Langella: Count Dracula
Count Dracula : [to Lucy] Now it is you, my best beloved one. You will be flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood. You will cross land and sea to do my bidding. I need your blood. I need...
Count Dracula : Jonathan Harker tells me you speak some Romanian.
Lucy Seward : Well, hardly, I know...
[Dracula says a sentence in Romanian and Lucy smiles]
Count Dracula : There, you do understand.
Lucy Seward : [still smiling] Not really. I have no idea what you said.
Count Dracula : I said it would be nice to see you smile.
Lucy Seward : [pause] Then you should be pleased.
Count Dracula : Oh, I am.
Lucy Seward : Before you arrived we were looking at the ship's log.
Count Dracula : It wasn't lost at sea?
Lucy Seward : No. The very last entry was a strange word. A word that Mina thought meant "undead".
Count Dracula : Undead?
Mina Van Helsing : Yes. "Nosferatu".
Count Dracula : Ah! It means "not dead".
Count Dracula : In the past 500 years, Professor, those who have crossed my path have all died, and some not pleasantly.
Jonathan Harker : COUNT DRACULA!
Count Dracula : You needn't shout, Mr. Harker. You frightened me.
Jonathan Harker : I'm sorry. I had a key.
[holds key up]
Jonathan Harker : I had to let myself in.
Count Dracula : I wonder where Renfield can be.
Jonathan Harker : I don't know. I knocked but he didn't...
Count Dracula : [interrupts] Yes, well, the man is worthless.
Count Dracula : I am the *king* of my kind!
Count Dracula : Listen to them - the children of the night. What sad music they make!
Count Dracula : You are a wise man, Professor, for someone who has not lived even a single lifetime.
Prof. Abraham Van Helsing : You flatter me, Count.
Count Dracula : But not wise enough to return to Holland at once,now that you have learned what you have learned.
Prof. Abraham Van Helsing : I prefer to remain.
Count Dracula : Lucy, come! Come to me!
[Lucy runs into Dracula's arms, and he embraces her]
Count Dracula : No, you must go on a bit longer as a creature of the sun. Only until we have left behind those who would destroy us.
Lucy Seward : And then?
Count Dracula : Then you will join me on a higher plane... feeding on them. We will create more of our kind, Lucy.
Count Dracula : You fools! Do you think with your crosses and your wafers you can destroy me? Me! You do not know how many men have come against me. I am the *king* of my kind! You have accomplished nothing, Van Helsing. Time is on my side. In a century, when you are dust, I shall wake and call Lucy, my queen, from her grave. I have in my time had many brides, Mr. Harker. But I shall set Lucy above them all.
Jonathan Harker : You won't get Lucy!
Count Dracula : She's mine already.
Count Dracula : I have buried many friends, and I too am weary.
