Quotes Edit

Vasily Fet: You look like a bunch of looters to me.
Ephraim Goodweather: We're from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Who are you?
Vasily Fet: I'm a looter.

Vasily Fet: Any reward for turning you in?
Ephraim Goodweather: No, sorry.
Vasily Fet: Too bad for me. Very good for you.

Vasily Fet: I need the rules. What kills these things, aside from direct sunlight?
Abraham Setrakian: The brainstem must be destroyed or severed from the spinal cord.
Vasily Fet: So, beheading or rebar bashing.

Jim Kent: Once I turn, I'm gonna go after them, right?
Abraham Setrakian: The ones you love, yes. The cruelest feature of this dark curse is that the bond that joins you in life, human love, is corrupted into the need to consume those closest to you.

Tunnels are the perfect ecology for them, aren't they? Dank, dark, devoid of sunlight. We already know vampires don't like sunlight. Not vampires, viruses. The die-off rate for any genome-based pathogen when exposed to direct ultraviolet light is over 90%. That's why sun desiccates them. And at nighttime, they have free reign. It's nighttime now. New York City is an open buffet.

I grew up with food shortages. People fighting over goods, medicine. There's gonna be looting, and panic, and vigilantes.

Not through glass, there's a natural UV barrier. Filters out 80 to 90% of UV radiation.

Extension cords, and food, and hydrogen peroxide. - I make list of everything you steal! - We're not stealing anything. All right, listen everybody. We need your help. We're doctors from the Center for Disease Control. There's a plague that's spreading through New York City. Is it a plague or is it vampires? Because he said vampires. It's a transformative disease that makes people predatory and extremely dangerous, but we have an idea about how to get us all out of here tonight. Sorry, man.

This is what they thrive on: Fear, panic, divisiveness. There's strength in numbers. We must make a plan and act together.

This is what they thrive on: Fear, panic, divisiveness. There's strength in numbers. We must make a plan and act together. It's called beat 'em to the truck! Just you and me then. You're ready? Oh, come on! Go on! Oh, my God! This can't be happening. Nobody leaves until we all leave! Are we stuck till morning? We won't make it till morning. We won't even last another hour. - We won't? - Many more will be coming. Soon, they'll swarm and overrun us. They can communicate with each other now? They're connected to the Master who sees through every strigoi eye.

Maybe in a tight cordon with the UVC lamps and the weapons, we can make a break for it.

I think you got nicked. It's just a scrape. - Jim - It's a worm. I need, uh, tweezers, a lighter. And where's that hydrogen peroxide? - Doctor, a word please. - I need, uh paper towels, gloves, and, uh, a knife. - What?! - I'm gonna cut it out of you. What are you gonna do with that box cutter? Here. Drink this. The stinger must have grazed you.

They're looking for multiple points of ingress, just like any other vermin. Can you can you see it? I think I can feel it around my eye now. - I'm not gonna lie to you - Get it out! Skin on face is very thin and it's full of nerve endings.

Trying to rip off the HVAC unit and get into the venting. They're getting more lucid, aren't they? In one month, they will be fully mature. Like Eichhorst? No, not like him. There are a few to whom the Master grants greater power. They retain parts of their former selves. Eichhorst is one of the chosen. Even among the strigoi, there is a caste system.

Cruelest feature of this dark curse is that the bond that joins you in life, human love, is corrupted into the need to consume those closest to you.

Maybe that's all it takes to transmit the parasite. Do you feel it anywhere? Anywhere? I can feel it everywhere now.
