Quotes[edit | edit source]


  • Mark: Jewish people pray, I've seen Yentl.
  • George Sands: You're very sarcastic for a vicar.
  • Mark: Yeah, so people tell me and I feel really bad about it and then I forgive myself.


  • William Herrick: So, a werewolf, a ghost and a vampire decide to live like humans do. They get jobs, a house and a TV licence. They make friends they will lie to, take lovers they will infect. In fact, the only part of humanity they successfully adopt is it's ability to deceive and destroy. All in all, I'd say your little scheme has been something of a failure.
  • John Mitchell: And what about your plans? Right now, how would you say they're working out?
  • William Herrick: Well, the fat lady ain't singing yet.
