Lestat: But why must we hide, Marius? We are the powerful, we are the immortal. We should walk fearless in the open!
Lestat: Well, that makes you a very clever librarian, Talamascan. I knew I left that journal somewhere. So, was it a good read?
Jessie: It touched me.
Lestat: Did it now? Don't worry, Jessie. Your kind never satisfied my thirst.
Lestat: Many times since then I've called for Marius, but there was no answer. Just the endless precession of days, months, years... My teacher left me to my darkest lesson, that in the end, we are alone, and there is nothing but the cold, dark wasteland of eternity.
Lestat: The question provoked an irresistible urge...I am the vampire Lestat. It just rolled out of my mouth. With one simple sentence I had betrayed everything about my kind. Betrayed our code of secrecy.
Lifestyle Journalist: Do you have anything you want to say to the other vampires listening out there?
Lestat: Yes, as a matter of fact, I do.
Lifestyle Journalist: What is that?
Lestat: Come out, come out, wherever you are.
Marius: You are the damnedest creature! You make me think of the old story about Alexander The Great. He wept when there where no more worlds to conquer. Will you weep when there are no more rules to break?
Lestat:Ah, but there are always rules to break.
Akasha: They have learned more efficient ways to slaughter. Nothing more. (venomous) You think you can change my will? I'm tired of this... discussion. Join me, or die.
Akasha: I have come to give you the world.
Akasha: Yes, In the shadows. In silence. In shame. All for what? For respect of mortals? They are nothing to us. They are only... food.
Akasha: We live everywhere and anywhere we choose. The world is our garden.
Akasha: You have yearned for a companion to share eternity. You have cried out to the world. I have answered your call.
Marius: She takes pleasure in only one thing: destroying life.
Marius: Appreciate your prey.
David Talbot: Can I ask...?
Jessie: What's it like?
David Talbot: Yes.
Jessie: Do you want to find out?
David Talbot: Me? No, no - I'm too old to live forever.
