Interview with the Vampire

Interview with the Vampire

Louis: "Most of all I longed for death. I know that now. I invited it. A release from the pain of living. My invitation was open to anyone. To the whore at my side, to the pimp that followed. But it was a vampire that accepted."

Louis: "Her blood coursed through my veins sweeter than life itself. And as it did, Lestat's words made sense to me. I knew peace only when I killed and when I heard her heart in that terrible rhythm, I knew again what peace could be."

Louis: "For 30 years I had avoided that place. Yet I found my way back there with hardly an upward glance."

Louis: "You lack the courage of your convictions, sir. Do it."

Lestat: "No one could resist me, not even you, Louis."
Louis: "I tried."
Lestat: (smiling) "And the more you tried, the more I wanted you."

Claudia: "Danger holds you to me!"
Louis: "Love holds you to me."

Claudia: "You... fed on me."
Louis: "I took your life. He gave you a new one."

Louis: "You see that old woman? That will never happen to you. You will never grow old, and you will never die."
Claudia: "And it means something else too, doesn't it? I shall never ever grow up."

Lestat: "Your body's dying. Pay no attention."

Lestat: "You are a vampire who never knew what life was until it ran out in a big gush over your lips."

Louis: "Lestat killed two, sometimes three a night. A fresh young girl, that was his favorite for the first of the evening. For seconds, he preferred a gilded beautiful youth. But the snob in him loved to hunt in society, and the blood of the aristocrat thrilled him best of all."

Louis: "Where are we?"
Lestat: "Where do you think, my idiot friend? We're in a nice, filthy cemetery. Does this make you happy? Is this fitting, proper enough?"
Louis: "We belong in hell."
Lestat: "And what if there is no hell, or they don't want us there? Ever think of that?"
Louis: "But there was a hell, and no matter where we moved to, I was in it."

Louis: "I'm flesh and blood, but not human. I haven't been human for two hundred years."

Armand: "The world changes, we do not, there lies the irony that finaly kills us."

Lestat: "God, I swear you grow more like Louis each day. Then you'll be eating rats!"
Claudia: "Rats? When did you eat rats Louis?"
Louis: "It was a long, long time ago. Before you were born, and I don't recomend them."

Louis: "How do we seem to you? Do you find us beautiful, magical? Our white skin, our fierce eyes? "Drink" you ask me, do you have any idea of the thing you will become?"

Lestat: "Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminately and so shall we. For no creatures under God are as we are, none so like him as ourselves."

Louis: "That morning I was not yet a vampire, and I saw my last sunrise. I remember it completely, and yet I can't recall any sunrise before it. I watched its whole magnificence for the last time as if it were the first. And then I said farewell to sun light, and set out to become what I became."

Louis: "We reached the Mediterranean. I wanted those waters to be blue, but they were black, nighttime waters, and how I suffered then, straining to recall the color that in my youth I had taken for granted."

Lestat: "Merciful death, how you love your precious guilt."

Claudia: "Goodnight sweet prince and may flights of devils sing you to your rest."

Claudia: "I'll put you in your coffin."

Claudia: "Who will take care of me my love, my dark angel, when you are gone?"

Louis: "Vampires pretending to be humans, pretending to be vampires."
Claudia: "How avant-garde!"

Lestat: "Evildoers are easier, and they taste better."

Armand: "You are beautiful my friend. Lestat must have wept when he made you."
Louis: "You knew Lestat?"
Armand: "Knew him well enough not to mourn his passing"

Armand: "They had fogotten the first lesson, that we are to be powerful, beautiful, and without regret."
Louis: "And you can teach me this?"
Armand: "Yes."
Louis: "To be without regret?"
Armand: "Yes."
Louis: "Then what a pair we could make, but what if it's a lesson I don't care to learn."
Armand: "What do you mean?"
Louis: "What if all I have is my suffering, my regret?"
Armand: "Don't you want to lose it?"
Louis: "Why? So you can have that too?! The heart that mourns her, her that you burnt to a cinder."
Armand: "Louis, I swear that I..."
Louis: "Ah, but I know you did. I know. You who regrets nothing, you who feels nothing, if that's all I have left to learn, I can do that on my own.....and as much as your invitation may appeal to me, I *regretfully* decline."
