Jonathan Harker begets the ire of Count Dracula after he accepts a job at the vampire's castle under false pretenses.

Dracula: I have crossed oceans of time to find you.
Dracula: Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose? That the luckiest man who walks on this earth is the one who finds... true love?
Mina: I want to be what you are, see what you see, love what you love.
Dracula: Mina, to walk with me you must die to your breathing life and be reborn to mine.
Mina: You are my love... and my life, always.
Dracula: Then, I give you life eternal. Everlasting love. The power of the storm. And the beasts of the earth. Walk with me to be my loving wife, forever.
Count Dracula: Listen to them. Children of the night. What music *they* make.
Dracula: I... love you too much to condemn you.
Dracula: [about the wolves that are howling] Listen to them: the children of the night. What sweet music they make.
Dracula: There is much to be learned from beasts.
Count Dracula: I am Dracula.
Renfield: Oh, it's really good to see you. I don't know what happened to the driver and my luggage and... Well, and with all this, I thought I was in the wrong place.
Count Dracula: I bid you welcome.
[Dracula goes up the stairs. Renfield starts to follow him. Suddenly, Dracula hears wolves howling]
Count Dracula: Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.
[Dracula goes up the steps and waits for Renfield, who, without difficulty, cuts open a hole in a huge spider's web using his walking stick]
Count Dracula: The spider spinning his web for the unwary fly. The blood is the life, Mr. Renfield.
Renfield: Why, er... yes.
Van Helsing: We've all become God's madmen, all of us.
Dracula: Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self. The green fairy who lives in the absinthe wants your soul. But you are safe with me.
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: We are dealing with forces beyond all human experience, and enormous power. So guard her well. Otherwise, your precious Lucy will become a bitch of the Devil! A whore of darkness!
Quincey P. Morris: Well, you're a sick old buzzard!
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Hear me out, young man. Lucy is not a random victim, attacked by mere accident, you understand? No. She is a willing recruit, a breathless follower, a wanton follower. I dare say, a devoted disciple. She is the Devil's concubine!
Mina: I love you! Oh, God forgive me, I do!
Dracula: I, who served the Cross. I, who commanded nations, hundreds of years before you were born.
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Your armies were defeated. You tortured and impaled thousands of people.
Dracula: I was betrayed. Look what your God has done to me!
Quincey P. Morris: And may I say that Miss Lucy is hotter than a June bride riding bareback buck naked in the middle of the Sahara!
Lord Arthur Holmwood: I would watch my colonial tongue if I were you.
Dracula: I am the monster that breathing men would kill. I am Dracula.
[Dracula has been slashed in the throat by Jonathan and impaled by Quincey]
Mina: [to Jonathan] When my time comes, will you do the same to me? Will you?
Jonathan Harker: [pause] No.
Van Helsing: Mr. Morris, your bullets will not harm him. He must be beheaded. I suggest you use your big Bowie knife.
Quincey P. Morris: Well, I wasn't plannin' on getting that close, Doc.
Count Dracula: To die, to be *really* dead, that must be glorious!
Mina Seward: Why, Count Dracula!
Count Dracula: There are far worse things awaiting man than death.
Van Helsing: The strength of the vampire is that people will not believe in him.
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Civilization, and syphilization, have advanced together.
Mina Harker: Take me away from all this death!
Count Dracula: For one who has not lived even a single lifetime, you're a wise man, Van Helsing.
Doctor Seward: But, Professor Van Helsing, modern medical science does not admit of such a creature! The vampire is a pure myth, superstition.
Van Helsing: I may be able to bring you proof that the superstition of yesterday can become the scientific reality of today.
Lucy Westenra: Come to me, Arthur. Leave these others and come to me. My arms are hungry for you, my darling.
Dracula: The blood is the life... and it shall be mine.
Renfield: I'm no lunatic man. I'm a sane man fighting for his soul.
Dracula: [to Harker] Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways. And to you there shall be many strange things.
Renfield, Van Helsing: Mr. Harker, I have devoted my lifetime to the study of many strange things. Little-known facts which the world is, perhaps, better off for not knowing.
John Harker: I know. But Professor, all I want is to get Mina away from all of this.
Van Helsing: That will do no good. Our only chance of saving Miss Mina's life is to find the hiding place of Dracula's living corpse and to drive a stake through its heart.
Renfield: Isn't this a strange conversation for men who aren't crazy?
Van Helsing: Jack. Come here. I know how deeply you loved her. That is why you must trust me and believe.
Doctor Jack Seward: Believe? How can I believe?
Van Helsing: I want you to bring me, before nightfall, a set of postmortem knives.
Doctor Jack Seward: An autopsy? On Lucy?
Van Helsing: No, no, no. Not exactly. I just want to cut off her head and take out her heart.
Van Helsing: [Holding a box] A moment ago, I stumbled upon a most amazing phenomena. Something so incredible, I mistrust my own judgement. Look.
[Van Helsing opens the box to reveal a mirror. Dracula smacks it out of his hand]
Jonathan Harker: The Count, the way he looked at Mina's picture fills me with dread. As if I have a part to play in a story that is not known to me.
Younger Woman: For the dead travel fast.
Dracula: [having just spotted Mina in the streets of London] See me. See me now.
Dracula: I condemn you to living death. To eternal hunger for living blood.
Dracula: [to Jonathan Harker] They say you are a man of good... taste.
Lord Arthur Holmwood: Last week he wanted to marry her. Now he wants to have her committed.
Mina Harker: How did Lucy die? Was she in great pain?
Professor Abraham Van Helsing: Yeah, she was in great pain! Then we cut off her head, and drove a stake through her heart, and burned it, and then she found peace.
Dracula: I shall rise from my own death, to avenge hers with all the powers of darkness.
Innkeeper: Castle Dracula?
Renfield: Yes. That's where I'm going.
Innkeeper: To the castle?
Renfield: Yes.
Innkeeper: No. You musn't go there. We people of the mountains believe in the castle there are vampires. Dracula and his wives - they take the form of wolves and bats. They leave their coffins at night and they feed on the blood of the living.
Lord Arthur Holmwood: Forgive me, sir. My life is hers - I would give my last drop of blood to save her.
Van Helsing: The last drop? Thank you, you're very welcome here.
Van Helsing: She lives beyond the grace of God, a wanderer in the outer darkness. She is "vampyr", "nosferatu". These creatures do not die like the bee after the first sting, but instead grow strong and become immortal once infected by another nosferatu. So, my friends we fight not one beast but legions that go on age after age after age, feeding on the blood of the living.
Dracula: You will, I trust, excuse me if I do not join you. But, I have already dined, and I never drink... wine.
Jonathan Harker: [looks at painting on the wall] An ancestor? I see a resemblance.
Dracula: The Order of the Dracul, the Dragon. An ancient society, pledging my forefathers to defend the church against all enemies of Christ. Their relationship was not entirely... successful.
Jonathan Harker: Oh.
[chuckles]
Jonathan Harker: Yes.
Dracula: [roars with rage as he draws a sword and points it at Harker's throat] It is no laughing matter! We Draculs have a right to be proud! What devil or witch was ever so great as Atilla, whose blood flows in these veins? Blood...
[laughs]
Dracula: Is too precious a thing in these times. The war-like days are over. The victories of my great race are but a tale to be told. I am the last of my kind.
Jonathan Harker: I have offended you with my ignorance, Count. Forgive me.
Renfield: No, no, master. I wasn't going to say anything, I told them nothing. I am loyal to you master.
Count Dracula: I am Dracula. I bid you welcome.
Renfield: Rats. Rats. Rats! Thousands! Millions of them! All red blood! All these will I give you if you will obey me.
Count Dracula: The spider spinning his web for the unwary fly... The blood is the life, Mr. Renfield.
Count Dracula: Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make.
Count Dracula: Van Helsing.
[Van Helsing turns to face Count Dracula]
Count Dracula: Now that you have learned what you have learned, it would be well for you to return to your own country.
Van Helsing: I prefer to remain and protect those whom you would destroy.
Count Dracula: You are too late. My blood now flows through her veins. She will live through the centuries to come, as I have lived.
Van Helsing: Should you escape us, Dracula. We know how to save Miss Mina's soul if not her life.
Count Dracula: If she dies by day. But I shall see that she dies by night.
Van Helsing: And I will have Carfax Abbey torn down, stone by stone, excavated a mile around. I will find your earth-box and drive that stake through your heart.
Count Dracula: Come here.
[Dracula raises his hand to hypnotise Van Helsing]
Count Dracula: Come here.
[Van Helsing takes three hypnotised steps towards Dracula but soon steps back, resisting Dracula's hypnotic power over him]
Count Dracula: Your will is strong, Van Helsing.
[Van Helsing reaches out for his crucifix as Dracula looms toward him]
Count Dracula: More wolfbane?
Van Helsing: More effective than wolfbane, Count.
Count Dracula: Indeed.
[Dracula lunges towards Van Helsing. Van Helsing holds up the crucifix. Dracula snarls and turns away. Van Helsing, in triumph, puts away the crucifix]
Van Helsing: You'll die in torment if you die with innocent blood on your soul.
Renfield: God will not damn a poor lunatic's soul. He knows that the powers of evil are too great for those with weak minds.
[Jonathan accidentally had a cut while shaving]
Jonathan Harker: I didn't hear you coming in.
Dracula: Take care how you cut yourself. It is more dangerous than you think.
[Dracula breaks the mirror]
Dracula: A foul bauble of man's vanity. Perhaps you should grow a beard.
[He licks the blood off the razor]
Dracula: The letters I requested, have you written them?
[Harker hands him the letters]
Dracula: Good. Should you leave these rooms, you will not by any chance go to sleep in any other part of the castle. It is old and has many bad memories. Be warned.
Count Dracula: This is very old wine. I hope you will like it.
Renfield: Aren't you drinking?
Count Dracula: I never drink... wine.
Maid: He's crazy!
Martin: They're all crazy. They're all crazy except you and me. Sometimes I have my doubts about you.
Maid: Yes.
Martin: Aren't you ashamed now? Aren't you? Spiders now, is it? Flies ain't good enough!
Renfield: Flies? Flies? Poor puny things! Who wants to eat flies?
Martin: You do, you loony!
Renfield: Not when I can get nice fat spiders!
Martin: All right, have it your own way.
Mina Seward: ...I heard dogs howling. And when the dream came, it seemed the whole room was filled with mist. It was so thick, I could just see the lamp by the bed, a tiny spark in the fog. And then I saw two red eyes glaring at me. And a white livid face came down out of the mist. It came closer and closer. I felt its breath on my face and then its lips... oh!
Renfield: You know too much to live, Van Helsing!
Arthur: [Chasing Dracula] even if he gets away.
Doctor Van Helsing: [shouts loudly] He would hide in the castle vaults for years! We would lose him there!
Arthur: And Mina.
Renfield: I'm loyal to you, Master, I am your slave, I didn't betray you! Oh, no, don't! Don't kill me! Let me live, please! Punish me, torture me, but let me live! I can't die with all those lives on my conscience! All that blood on my hands!
[Dracula picks up Renfield with his bony hands and in a few seconds, Renfield dies]
John Harker: My, what a big bat!
Count Dracula: Sleep well, Mr. Harker.
[first lines]
Young Girl Passenger: [reading from a Transylvanian tourist brochure] "Among the rugged peaks that crown down upon the Borgo Pass are found crumbling castles of a bygone age."
Lucy Westenra: Quincy... you're such a beast. Will you kiss me, Quincy?
[Pulls Quincy close]
Lucy Westenra: Kiss me. Kiss...
[snarls; growls]
Van Helsing: What have you to do with Dracula?
Renfield: DRACULA?... I never even heard the name before
Renfield: I'm loyal to you Master, I 'm your slave, I didn't betray you! Oh no, don't! Don't kill me! Let me live, please! Punish me - torture me - but let me live! I can't die with all those lives on my conscience, all that blood on my hands!
Van Helsing: Do not let your eyes see or your ears hear that which you cannot account for.
Van Helsing: Yet, we may still save her precious soul. But, not on an empty stomach! Jack!
Doctor Jack Seward: Yes, sir?
Van Helsing: Ah! I starve! Feed me!
Tania: Do you know what's wrong with her?
Doctor Seward: Of course, I do.
Tania: Then why don't you make her better?
Gerda: Tania... Tania. How many times have I told you not to go bothering Mrs. Holmwood? I'm sorry, ma'am.
Mina Holmwood: That's alright, Gerda.
Doctor Seward: A child's logic can be most disconcerting.
Mina Holmwood: Yes.
Mina: [watching Lucy flirt with possible suitors at the party, voiceover] Lucy is a pure and virtuous girl. But, I admit that her free way of speaking shocks me sometimes. Jonathan says it is a defect of the aristocracy that they say what they please. The truth is that I admire Lucy, and I'm not surprised that men flock around her. I wish I were as pretty and as adored as she.
Martin: [Referring to Renfield] I've heard to wolves howling at night he thinks that are talking to him. He's CRAZY!
Count Dracula: [tries to hypnotize Van Helsing and fails] Your will is strong.
[tries to attack]
Van Helsing: [takes out a crucifix without fear] Indeed.
Van Helsing: Gentlemen, we are dealing with the undead.
Scholar: Nosferatu
Van Helsing: Yes, Nosferatu.
Lucy Weston: [doing an impression of Dracula] It reminds me of the broken battlements of my own castle in Transylvania.
[chuckles]
Mina Seward: Oh, Lucy, you're so romantic!
Lucy Weston: Laugh all you like. I think he's fascinating.
Mina Seward: Oh, I suppose he's all right. But give me someone a little more normal.
Lucy Weston: Like John?
Mina Seward: Yes, dear, like John.
Lucy Weston: [dreamily] Castle... Dracula... Transylvania!
Mina Seward: Well, Countess! I'll leave you to your count and his ruined abbey!
[both giggle]
Mina Seward: Good night, Lucy.
Lucy Weston: Good night, dear.
Lucy Weston: Lofty timbers, the walls around are bare, echoing to our laughter as though the dead were there... Quaff a cup to the dead already, hooray for the next to die!
[Renfield holds a plate of bugs]
Renfield: Would you care for a hors d'oeuvre, Dr. Seward or a canape?
Doctor Jack Seward: No, thank you, Mr. Renfield. How are you feeling tonight?
Renfield: Far better than you, my lovesick doctor.
Doctor Jack Seward: Is my personal life of interest to you?
Renfield: Of course it is. All life interests me.
Doctor Jack Seward: Your diet, Mr. Renfield, is disgusting.
Renfield: Actually, they're perfectly nutritious. You see, each life that I ingest gives back life to me.
Doctor Jack Seward: The fly gives you life?
Renfield: Certainly. But you might as well ask a man to eat molecules with a pair of chopsticks than to interest me in lesser carnivore.
Doctor Jack Seward: I shall have to invent a new classification of a lunatic for you. What about spiders? Spiders eat the flies.
Renfield: Yes, spiders eat them.
Doctor Jack Seward: What about sparrows?
Renfield: Oh, yes. Did you say sparrows?
Doctor Jack Seward: Something larger perhaps?
Renfield: Oh, yes. A kitten. I beg you. A little, sleek - a playful kitten. Something I can teach. Something I can feed. No one would refuse me a kitten.
Doctor Jack Seward: Wouldn't you prefer a cat?
Renfield: Oh, yes, a big cat! My salvation depends upon it!
Doctor Jack Seward: Your salvation?
Renfield: Yes! I need lives. I need lives for the master!
Doctor Jack Seward: What? What master?
Renfield: The master will come, and he has promised to make me immortal!
Doctor Jack Seward: How?
[Renfield suddenly attacks Seward and the guards rushed in to subdue him]
Renfield: The blood is the life! The blood is the life!
Dracula: Renfield, you have betrayed me!
Renfield: He came and stood below my window in the moonlight. And he promised me things, not in words, but by doing them.
Van Helsing: Doing them?
Renfield: By making them happen. A red mist spread over the lawn, coming on like a flame of fire! And then he parted it, and I could see that there were thousands of rats, with their eyes blazing red,l ike his, only smaller. Then he held up his hand, and they all stopped, and I thought he seemed to be saying: "Rats! Rats! Rats! Thousands! Millions of them! All red-blood! All these will I give you! If you will obey me!"
Van Helsing: What did he want you to do?
Renfield: That which has already been done!
[giggles sinisterly]
Doctor Van Helsing: Since the death of Jonathan Harker Count Dracula the propagator of this unspeakable evil has disappeared. He must be found and destroyed!
Count Dracula: I am Dracula and I welcome you to my house. I must apologize for not being here to greet you personally, but I trust you've found everything you needed.
Vampire Woman: You will help me, won't you? Say you will, please!
Jonathan Harker: How can I help you?
Vampire Woman: Get me away from here.
[first lines]
Jonathan Harker: [narrating his diary] The Diary of Jonathan Harker... Third of May, 1885. At last, my long journey is drawing to its close. What the eventual end will be, I cannot foresee. But whatever may happen, I can rest secure that I will have done all in my power to achieve success.
[last lines]
Mina: [narrating] There, in the presence of God, I understood at last how love could release us all from the power of darkness. Our love is stronger than death.
Dracula: Give me peace.
Mina: [impales him with the sword, then kisses him, then beheads him]
Doctor Van Helsing: What are you afraid of?
Landlord: I don't understand you.
Doctor Van Helsing: Why all these garlic flowers? And over the window? And up here? They're not for decoration, are they?
Arthur: [talking to to Van Helsing] Rest, have yourself some wine, I'm sure you could use both. Gerda, would you fetch another bottle.
Gerda: I don't like to. You know what happened last time I disobeyed Mrs. Holmwood's orders.
Arthur: What do you mean?
Gerda: Madam told the other day that on no account I was to go into the cellar.
Doctor Van Helsing: [Van Helsing realizes that's where Dracula was hiding he goes to the cellar finds his coffin and Dracula who locks him in] Holmwood! Holmwood!
Arthur: [Van Helsing prepares to stake Lucy] Is there no other way? It's horrible.
Doctor Van Helsing: Please try and understand this is not Lucy the sister you loved. It's only a shell possessed and corrupted by the evil of Dracula. To liberate her soul and give her peace we must destroy that shell for all time. Believe me there is no other way.
Doctor Van Helsing: [puts his coat on Tania] There, you look like a teddy bear. You won't run away will you?
Tania: No, I promise.
Doctor Van Helsing: [points east] If you look over there you can see the sun coming up.
Doctor Van Helsing: If the investigation that Mr. Harker and I are engaged upon is successful, not only you, but the only whole will benefit. Castle Dracula is somewhere here in Klausenberg. Will you tell me how I get there?
Landlord: You ordered a meal, sir. As an innkeeper, it is my duty to serve you. When you've eaten, I ask you to go and leave us in peace.
[last lines]
[Arthur points to Dracula who is in the process of attempting to bury Mina]
Arthur: Look!
Van Helsing: We have learned much. Dracula fears us. He fears time. For if he does not, why does he hurry so.
Doctor Van Helsing: I'm sorry, Mr. Holmwood, but I really cannot tell you anything more about how he died.
Arthur: Cannot or will not?
Doctor Van Helsing: Whichever you wish.
Arthur: Dr. Van Helsing, I am not at all satisfied. You suddenly appear and tell us that Jonathan Harker is dead. And yet you will not tell us where or how he died. I find it extremely suspicious.
Mina Holmwood: Arthur!
Jonathan Harker: You make it very difficult for me. After all, I'm a guest here. If I'm to help you, I must have a reason.
Vampire Woman: A reason! You ask for a reason? Is it not reason enough that he locks me up in this house, holds me against my will? You can have no idea what an evil man he is... or of the terrible things he does!
[to Mina about the wolf]
Dracula: He likes you.
Jonathan Harker: [narrating his diary] It only remains for me now to await the daylight hours where I will with God's help forever end this man's reign of terror!.
Vampire Woman: I could not... dare not try to leave on my own. He would find me again, I know. But with you to help me, I might have a chance. You must help me! You must! You're my only hope! You must!
Jonathan Harker: I'll help you, I promise. Please don't distress yourself.
