  • We have come for the body of Count Voivoida Armenios Ceauşescu Dracula. I believe there is a wooden stake in the heart. You will take us to him.
    • At the morgue. And possibly a reference to Nicolae Ceauşescu the leader of communist Romania overthrown a few years earlier.

  • He was like Elvis in the end. Drugged, confused, surrounded by zombies.
  • He tried to change, tried to resist the usual pattern. He managed to show some restraint. But she, she died in childbirth. [...] And after that he didn't care about anything. It was back to basics.

Nadja (holding Lucy's pet tarantula Bela): What does he eat?
Lucy: Potatoes. Potato salad. Deer[?]. I tried to teach him French but he wasn't interested.
Nadja: Maybe he has a learning disability.
  • "Deer" is hard to hear, maybe "Beer".
