Episode Quotes
Vicious: A serpent's venom poisons slowly after the bite.

Vicious: And you will shed tears of scarlet.

Julia: Tell him I'll be waiting for him there. That's all. He'll know what it means.

Jet: So what's she like?
Faye: Ordianry. A dangerous, beautiful ordianry. Like a devil from paradise, or an angel from the underworld.

Van: A snake cannot eat a dragon.

Jet: Find what you lost and get it back!

(Flashback during Jet's operation)
Spike: When this is over, I'm leaving the syndicate.
Julia: They'll kill you. You know how they work.
Spike: Huh. Let them say I'm dead... I'll be waiting at the graveyard. By the graves, not in them.
Julia: Spike... I can't come with you.
Spike: Yes you can. We'll leave, get out of this.
Julia: And go where? Do what?
Spike: Live...and be free. It'll be like watching a dream.

Vicious: So, you were going to betray me?
(Julia shrugs)
Vicious: Did you really think you could just leave?
Julia: Vicious...
Vicious: Keep dreaming, Julia. It's never going to happen.
Julia: Are you going to kill him?
Vicious: I'm not. You're going to do it for me.
(He lays a gun on the table in front of her)
Vicious: Either you kill him, or else both of you die. Those are your only options.

Vicious: The Syndicate doesn't need corpses that can't fight.
