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: 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.
Milo Renfield: Please master. Hurt me, torture me, I deserve it. But please... don't kill me.
Count Dracula: Ah, Renfield... you disappoint me so.
[talking about Dracula]
Lucy Seward: You dare try to confuse me! Tormenting him who is the saddest, the kindest of all!"
Prof. Abraham Van Helsing: Kind? If I could send his soul to everlasting, burning hell I would!
[Dracula, Lucy,and Mina are discussing "Nosferatu"]
Mina Van Helsing: Dead! Undead! I don't care, they all frighten me!
Lucy Seward: Oh, I love to be frightened!
Count Dracula: [glances at her, then, after a pause] *Do* you?
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.
Prof. Abraham Van Helsing: [looking at himself in a mirror] Ach, the devil.
Count Dracula: I'm not as bad as that.
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.
