Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Eric Northman: I care about very few people in this world. A small handful of vampires... and you.



  • Pam De Beaufort: Mary came to me when she was younger than you; I don't know, about sixteen or seventeen. She was much prettier than I'm sure you ever were, but here's where you're the same. She thought she was too good to be a whore. She couldn't see that she was born a hooker, and a hooker was all she was ever going to be. Now, don't that sound like you?


  • Eric Northman: Death is scary. I've been avoiding it for a thousand years.


  • Bill Compton: Ask her if I can call on her tonight. She needs to understand this decision. She deserves to know. But I can't explain it to her if she doesn't give me the chance. Please.
  • Eric Northman: I'm over a thousand years old, Bill. If I had an aptitude for marriage counseling, don't you think I would have figured that out by now?
