Van Helsing (2004)
Kate Beckinsale: Anna Valerious
Aleera : Anna, my love. It is your blood that shall keep me beautiful. What do you think of that?
[laughs triumphantly, then screams as Anna catches a silver stake and impales her through the chest]
Anna Valerious : I think if you're going to kill somebody, kill them! Don't stand around talking about it!
Van Helsing : There's something down here, it's carnivorous. Whatever it is it appears to be... human. I'd say it's a size 17, about 360 pounds, 8 and a half to 9 feet tall and he has a bad gimp in his right leg and, ah, 3 copper teeth.
Anna Valerious : How do you know he has copper teeth?
Van Helsing : 'Cause he's standing right behind you.
Van Helsing : Move!
[after Van Helsing's first, failed attempt to kill Dracula]
Anna Valerious : A silver stake? A crucifix? What, did you think we haven't tried everything before? We've shot him, stabbed him, clubbed him, sprayed him with holy water, staked him through the heart, and STILL he lives! Do you understand? No-one knows how to kill Dracula!
Van Helsing : Well, I could have used that information a little earlier.
Anna Valerious : He's the first one to kill a vampire in over a hundred years. I'd say that's earned him a drink.
[Dracula's minions have taken all of Frankenstein's equipment to castle Dracula]
Anna Valerious : Then we've lost.
Carl : Dracula can't bring them to life until the sun sets. We still have time.
Anna Valerious : "Time"? The sun sets in two hours, and we've been searching for his lair for over 400 years!
Carl : I wasn't around for those 400 years, was I?
Aleera : Don't play coy with me, Princess, you're just like all the other pretty little ancestors in your family. Saying you want to destroy my master, but I know what lurks in your lusting heart.
Anna Valerious : I hope you have a heart, Aleera, because someday I'm going to drive a stake through it.
Van Helsing : He's not your brother anymore, Anna!
Anna Valerious : You knew?
Van Helsing : Yes.
Anna Valerious : Before or after I stopped you from shooting him?
Van Helsing : Before.
Anna Valerious : And still you tried to kill him!
Van Helsing : He's a werewolf. He's going to kill people!
Anna Valerious : It's not his fault! He can't help it!
Van Helsing : I know, but he's going to do it anyway!
[approaching the entrance to Castle Dracula]
Carl : Do we have a plan? I mean, it doesn't have to be Wellington's at Waterloo, but some kind of plan would be nice.
Van Helsing : We're going to go in there and stop Dracula.
Anna Valerious : And kill anyone who gets in our way.
Carl : [quickly turns around] Well, you let me know how that goes...
Count Vladislaus Dracula : Don't we make a lovely couple?
[Anna looks at the mirror. Dracula is not in the reflection]
Count Vladislaus Dracula : I'm looking for a new bride, Anna, someone strong and beautiful. All it takes is one bite from me.
Anna Valerious : [Dracula hugs her tighter] You have no heartbeat.
Count Vladislaus Dracula : Perhaps it just needs to be rekindled.
Anna Valerious : No! Find Velkan's gun! It has to be the silver bullets!
Van Helsing : [Bangs on the canal gate feverishly while staying afloat; he looks on as the Frankenstein monster drifts away with the enemy] I must save him!
Carl : [Holding his head down] No, you can't.
Van Helsing : [Surprised] Why?
Carl : [Lamentingly] I cabled Rome earlier to apprise them of our situation.
Van Helsing : And what did they say?
Carl : [Speaks with sadness in his voice] Even if you somehow kill Dracula, Rome orders you to destroy Frankenstein as well.
Van Helsing : But he isn't evil!
Carl : Yes, but they say he isn't human either.
Van Helsing : Do they know him? Have they talked with him? Who are they to judge?
Carl : They want you to destroy him so he can never be used to harm humanity.
Van Helsing : And what of *me?* Did you tell them what *I'm* to become?
[Swiftly grabs hold of Carl's throat]
Van Helsing : Did they tell you how to *kill* me?
[He lifts him up with one arm, pinning him to the gate; the more he speaks, the tighter his grip gets around Carl's throat, while he struggles vainly to free himself]
Van Helsing : The correct *angle* of the stake as it enters my heart?
Anna Valerious : [Anna, terrified of his outburst tries to grab hold of Van Helsing to get him to release Carl] No! Stop!
Van Helsing : [His hand still tightening, his iris dilate and begin to glow an eerie, pale yellow as he yells] The exact measure of *silver* in each *bullet*? Huh?
Carl : [Croaks pitifully in Van Helsing's grip, and speaks pleadingly] No, I-I left you out!
Van Helsing : [Van Helsing's eyes look more and more savage. He grimaces and doubles over, releasing Carl from his grasp. Then he clutches himself, as a vicious roar bellows though his lips; he snarls and sneers while clenching his fists trying to fight away the curse. Anna and Carl look at him with both fear of and for him; as his eyes return to that of human, he realizes he has little time left and that he has hurt his best friend. He looks at Carl with regret] I'm sorry... It is starting...
