Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Marcus Van Sciver: Hey, don't wait! You don't listen to him, you get up and you get dressed now or I will kill you before you take another breath! You were here to close a deal not to whore yourself out to a degenerate pure-blood!


  • Chase: I think he wants me to fail.
  • Alex: Why?
  • Chase: I almost died in Berlin - Blade. I got burnt. I think Marcus lost faith in me. All he needs is an excuse to replace me.


  • Alex: You look good, Chase.
  • Chase: That's the best you can do. After what? Sixty years.
  • Alex: sixty-three, but who's counting?
  • Chase: Apparently you are.


  • Alex: You're beautiful.
  • Chase: You already have me in bed, you can stop.
  • Marcus Van Sciver: (walking in) No, please continue. It's a hell of a show.


  • Alex: What are you doing?
  • Chase: Giving you the chance to prove that Purebloods aren't immortal. Purebloods can die, and we the infected ones will be the ones to take you all down.
