Main Characters in this Episode
Sookie Stackhouse: [about vampires] They're comin' for us, you know.
Rev. Steve Newlin: Yeah, well that's what I thought. Figured a pretty girl like you had a vamp runnin' off to her rescue. Actually we're kinda hopin' for it, weren't we, Gabe?
Gabe: Yes, sir. Bring it on.
Rev. Steve Newlin: We're waiting for him. We've been waiting a long time.
Sookie Stackhouse: You're gonna get yourself killed. That't not a threat. That's a fact.
Rev. Steve Newlin: They've got you all twisted up, haven't that? With their glamoring and their empty promises and their evil blood.
Sookie Stackhouse: [disgusted] You're the ones who are twisted! You call yourself Christians? Jesus would be ashamed of you!
Rev. Steve Newlin: [laughing] I guess we're gonna have to agree to disagree on that one. Now things got a little outta hand last night and I apologize for that. I'm not the monster that the vampire lovin' media makes me out to be.
Sookie Stackhouse: Yeah right!
Rev. Steve Newlin: All I want from you is a couple of answers and than I'll be happy to feed you a nice hot breakfast and send you on your way.
Hugo: What do you want to know?
Sookie Stackhouse: Shut up!
Hugo: Sookie, we need to get out of here. Just tell them what they want to know. [to Steve] He name is Sookie Stackhouse and I'm Hugo Aries.
Sookie Stackhouse: Hugo, no!
Hugo: We were sent here by the vampires of Area 9 to find their sheriff!
Isabel: Don't underestimate them. Support for their movement is growing. Their leadership camps are over flowing with self righteous extremists, all willing and ready to die for their cause.
Eric Northman: That can be arranged quite easily.
Isabel: Not until we know for sure the Fellowship has Godric.
Eric Northman: What about your boy Hugo? And Sookie? They've been in there too long.
Isabel: There's no sign of alarm and if Hugo were in serious danger, I would know it. I felt something earlier but it passed. He's OK now.
Eric Northman: Tell me, what is it you find so fulfilling about human campanionship?
Isabel: They feel much more strongly than we do. Everything is urgent, exciting. Maybe because their lives are so temporary.
Eric Northman: Yes, they certainly don't keep well. Do you find the prospect of him growing old, sickly and crippled somewhat repulsive?
Isabel: No, I find it curious. Like a science experiment. How does Bill Compton feel about your interest in Sookie?
Eric Northman: I'm not interested in Sookie and even less in how Bill Compton feels. My only interest is finding Godric.
