Blade: You can go.
Russian General: You're kidding, yes?
Blade: Yes. (chops his head off)
Blade: It's a disaster.
Shen: Just the way you like it. Barred windows, plenty of space and, if we get bored, there's a ping pong table in the back. I know how much you love ping pong. Come on, I've taken you to half a dozen sites that could be sealed up tighter than a frog's ass - you pissed on every one of 'em. You said we had to move fast.
Blade: We do.
Shen: Well, then pick a place to throw down your damned sleeping bag!
Marcus: The House of Chthon has a lot of locked doors. Doors meant to hold my secrets. You've been peeking through a lot of keyholes, Zack. Too many.
Krista: Where's Zack?
Uncle Pat McCallum: He was arrested last week. Listen, I'm thinking we should all sit down, have a nice long talk before he winds up in prison.
Lisa Starr: Waste of time.
Krista: Mom, he's not a bad guy. He's just a little lost.
Lisa Starr: Why do you always defend him?
Krista: Because nobody else will!
Blade: Sun's down. Time to make some new friends.
Graft: (after Blade throws him onto the floor) What the hell?! I told you I'd talk!
Blade: Sorry, I didn't hear you.
Krista: I was just at his apartment and there was this man there going through his stuff.
Detective Brian Boone: Oh, yeah? What'd he look like?
Krista: Black, dressed in black...
Detective Brian Boone: Oh, black? That narrows it down.
Krista: Can I see my brother's file?
Detective Brian Boone: No.
Krista: Maybe I could help. I was a sergeant in the army.
Detective Brian Boone: Yeah, well, this ain't the army.
Blade: Figure it out! You're supposed to be the smart one!
Shen: And, I'm the good-looking one, too.
Blade: He'll be hard to get close to.
Shen: And, you don't exactly blend in.
Krista: Holy shit! Those... are...
Krista: ...vampires. What does that make you?
Blade: Something else.
Krista: What does that mean?! God, what is that smell?
Blade: Garlic. They don't like it, either.
Krista: This is impossible.
Blade: There's a whole other world beneath this one, Krista.
Krista: Why does everybody know my name?
Krista: (on Blade wearing shades in the dark) How can you see with those things?
Krista: I'm going after them with or without you. Silver bullet.
Blade: Doesn't work on me.
Krista: But, I bet it hurts like a son of a bitch.
Blade: Go ahead.
Krista: Go ahead?
Blade: I'm not talking to you.
Krista: (picking up one of Shen's guns) Finally, something I recognise... kind of. Customised PDW?
Shen: We call it a shotgun. One taste of liquid garlic chambers from that monster sends any vampire into anaphylactic shock. Their skin ruptures, their blood evaporates.
Krista: So, trying to recapture the past?
Marcus: Just trying not to forget it.
Marcus: I'm impressed, Krista.
Krista: I hope you still are when I'm shoving a stake up your ass!
Marcus: You, on the other hand, might just work.
Krista: What are you gonna do? Bite me?
Marcus: Bite you? That's for savages.
Marcus: Hello, Krista. Welcome to the family.
Krista: What did you do to me? What did you do?
Marcus: I saved you.
Krista: Did Marcus change you?
Chase: No. My husband did... and lived to regret it. He still does.
Detective Brian Boone: Don't pull that Dracula shit sneaking up on people, I almost crapped myself.
Marcus: You've been overfeeding them again. And, for what? A few dirty twenties?
Shen: (to Blade) Next time I offer you backup, you take it!
Blade: Look, you wanted in and you're in. You're in as far as you can go. You're one of them.
Krista: So, are you.
Blade: You can learn so much. I can work with you... just like I worked with your brother.
Krista: My brother? Zack worked for you?
Blade: Yes. He was my contact here.
Krista: Oh, my God, you got him killed!
Blade: No. Marcus did. But, Marcus was wrong about him, he was a good man.
Shen: What do you think?
Blade: Could go either way.
