Larten Crepsley: Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I am so excited to be here in an anonymous small town which used to have character but is now just a bland suburb filled with chain stores and surrounded by slums.

[awkward silence in audience]

Larten Crepsley: It really is a pleasure to be here. And I am SO honored that bla, bla, bla and so on and so forth, et cetera, ad nauseam.

Larten Crepsley: Nice night, actually.

[pointing up, causing Darren to look away]

Larten Crepsley: Is that the Little Dipper or the big one? I can never remember it.

[breaks Darren's neck]

Larten Crepsley: Sorry about that. I had to do that or they would never believe you were dead. Don't worry. There's no damage to your spinal cord. And I'll sneak into the funeral home and fix your broken neck. Oh, and... sorry about this next part.

Evra the Snake Boy: [embarrassed after shaking Darren's hand and leaving some skin behind] Yeah. Shedding, huh. Itches like crazy. Uh, you should actually go wash your hand off before you get pinkeye.

Larten Crepsley: What did Mr. Tiny want?

Darren Shan: Mr. Tiny?

Larten Crepsley: The fat man in the limousine!

Darren Shan: I don't know. Something about, uh, souls and, uh, and destiny. And he knew where I lived.

Larten Crepsley: Looks like you're in deep shit, my larcenous friend. Mr. Tiny doesn't just take a random interest in people - and the people he does take an interest in wind up dead... or worse.

Darren Shan: What's worse than dead?

Larten Crepsley: Oh... lots of things.

Darren Shan: Yes, I have.

Larten Crepsley: And you'll never do anything wrong again as long as you live.

Darren Shan: No, I won't.

Larten Crepsley: You see? Now you're a thief and a liar!

Darren Shan: [leaving his family for the second time] Will it work, hypnotizing them?

Larten Crepsley: It works on the memories but not on the emotions. Not really. They'll always feel that you're still alive somehow.

Larten Crepsley: Is it?
