Count Dracula edit

  • Igor, you did it again! How many times do I have to tell you? Keep my tomb door open at night and closed in the day. Open at night and closed in the day!
  • It's one of those days I wish I was dead. And stayed dead.

Igor edit

  • From Bulgaria. The incredible man who Doctor Frankenstein created in his spare time... from a lot of spare parts. The Frankenstein creature.
  • I believe I hear the Master coming now! [he looks out the window] Yes! I can see him clearly through the fog! [Dracula crashes and slams into the window]

Dialogue edit

Count Dracula: Hiya, Baby, it's me, Count Dracula.
Witch: I didn't think it was a hummingbird.

Frankenstein's Monster: My feet hurt!
Count Dracula: Don't give me that! I happen to know those aren't your feet!
Frankenstein's Monster: What did you have to bring that up for?

Frankenstein's Monster: Are they gone yet?
Count Dracula: Yes, it's safe for you to come out now and protect my life!

Count Dracula: What do I do now?
Igor: Master, believe me, they're just illusions. They cannot harm you.
Count Dracula: Can't do any me harm, huh? Who did that? Termites?

Igor: [announcing the witch's arrival] The flying Queen of Hallowe'en!
Witch: Outta my way, shorty!

Witch: Well, for heavens sake! You look just like me.
Girl dressed as witch: This is my favorite costume, because of you.
Witch: It is? Why?
Girl dressed as witch: Because you're one of my favorite people.
Boy dressed as Scarecrow: We love you just the way you are! All the kids feel that way.
Witch: You really love me? All right, I'll do it! Knowing you love me means more to me than any of his promises.
Count Dracula: Oh, then we can forget those silly conditions that you asked for?
Witch: Not on your life! You're going to keep every one of those promises just the same! Starting with the disco party right after I ride over the moon. So long, kids! This ride is just for you!
