    • Countess Marya Zaleska: I'm glad you're not your friend, Professor Van Helsing.
    • Dr. Garth: Why?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: He'd probably attach some occult significance to my lack of mirrors.
    • Dr. Garth: Occult?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Well, I seem to remember an old Hungarian legend that a vampire casts no reflection in a mirror.
    • [on the phone]
    • [hangs up]

    • Hawkins: You know anything about this?
    • Prof. Von Helsing: Yes, I did it.
    • Hawkins: Who is he in there?
    • Prof. Von Helsing: His name's Count Dracula.
    • Hawkins: How long has he been dead?
    • Prof. Von Helsing: About 500 years.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Be thou exorcised oh Dracula, and thy body long undead find destruction throughout eternity in the name of thy dark unholy Master. In the name of the oh holiest and through this cross be the evil spirit cast out until the end of time

    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Yes, you'll do very well indeed. Do you like jewels, Lili? This is very old and very beautiful, I'll show it to you.
    • Lili: I don't think I'll pose tonight. I think I'll go, if you don't mind... Please don't come any closer!
    • [She screams]
    • Dr. Garth: Where's Janet?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Safe... so far.
    • Dr. Garth: If you've harmed her...
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: You're not in London now, Dr. Garth, with your police. You're in Transylvania, in my castle.
    • Dr. Garth: Hypnosis, eh?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Something older, and more powerful.
    • Dr. Garth: Whatever it is, I'll bring her out of it.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Like the other one, who died? Her pulse is weak, Dr. Garth, growing weaker. All your skill cannot help her now. She's under a spell that can be broken only by me... or death.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Possibly there are more things in heaven and Earth than are dreamed of in your psychiatry, Mr. Garth.
    • [She gives Sandor her cloak]
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: There's blood on it again.
    • Dr. Garth: Well, at any rate a good tramp over the moors and the smell of the heather may help me forgot London, and case histories of neurotic ladies.
    • Mr. Graham - Host: Aye, but remember, you're not here to doctor the birds but to shoot them.
    • Dr. Garth: There's a few "birds" in London I'd like to shoot, and they haven't feathers, either.
    • Dr. Garth: I'm a psychiatrist, Professor, not a lawyer. I'd do anything in the world to help you, but what?
    • Prof. Von Helsing: Do you, as an intelligent scientist, dare to dismiss as superstition the principles underlying Tibetan magic, voodooism, thought transference?
    • Dr. Garth: No.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: Well, there you are.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: You must convince them of my sanity.
    • Dr. Garth: If I do that they'll hang you for murder.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: You can't murder a man who's been dead for five centuries.
    • Dr. Garth: Talking like that won't help.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: When you were a student under me in Vienna, Jeffrey, you had a far more open mind.
    • Dr. Garth: My mind is just as open as it ever was, Professor, but it's a scientific mind, and there's no place in it for superstition.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: Superstition? Who can define the boundary line between the superstition of yesterday and the scientific fact of tomorrow? In the history of your own profession, psychiatry, a century ago, hypnosis was looked upon as black magic. Today it is accepted as commonplace, even used in anesthesia. What would have happened to a man a hundred years ago who advanced the present-day theories of the subconscious?
    • Dr. Garth: Oh, I know, I know.
    • Lady Esme Hammond: My dear, how sweet of you to come.
    • Janet Blake: Don't you know it's very rude to stare at strangers?
    • Dr. Garth: Thought I'd gotten rid of you for a while.
    • Janet Blake: Not while there's a dangerous looking brunette like that around.
    • Lady Esme Hammond: You know, my guests are dying to meet you.
    • Dr. Garth: Well, strangely enough, Van Helsing takes his vampires quite seriously.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Why not? Possibly there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your psychiatry, Mr. Garth.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Why are you looking at me that way?
    • Sandor: Barking because there are wolves about.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Silence! I forbid you!
    • Sandor: Forbid? Why are you afraid?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: I'm not. I'm not. I found release!
    • Sandor: That music doesn't speak of release.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: No. No! You're right!
    • Sandor: That music tells of the dark, evil things, shadowy places.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Stop. Stop! STOP!
    • Sandor: I'm remembering last night... and waiting.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: You think this night will be like all the others, don't you? Well, you're wrong. Dracula's destroyed. His body's in ashes. The spell is broken. I can live a normal life now, think normal things. Even play normal music again. Listen. A cradle song. A song my mother once sang to me long, long ago, rocking me to sleep as she sang in the twilight.
    • Sandor: Twilight.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Quiet. Quiet. You disturb me. Twilight. Long shadows on the hillsides.
    • Sandor: Evil shadows.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: No. No, peaceful shadows, the flutter of wings in the treetops.
    • Sandor: The wings of bats.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: No. No, the wings of birds. From far off, the barking of a dog.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Dr. Garth, I asked you here tonight because I need your help.
    • Dr. Garth: As a psychiatrist?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: As a man of strength and courage.
    • Dr. Garth: Well, I'm afraid that places me at a disadvantage.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Do you believe that the dead can influence the living?
    • Dr. Garth: Your mind has the power to do that.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: No.
    • Dr. Garth: Well, in what way?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Could you conceive of a superhuman mentality influencing someone from the other side of death?
    • Dr. Garth: No.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: There is such a one.
    • Dr. Garth: Mm-hmm. Well, go on.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Someone... something that reaches out from beyond the grave and fills me with horrible impulses.
    • Dr. Garth: Well, how can I help you?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Use my brain, my will, for an instrument as he has used them, but for release.
    • Dr. Garth: Now look here. I'm tired of being annoyed after office hours. If you don't stop calling me, I'll come over there and, regardless of your sex, I'll smack you in the nose!
    • Dr. Beemish - Chief of Staff: I would like you to go and see her immediately. That is, if you're in condition to do so.
    • Dr. Beemish - Chief of Staff: But... This is Dr. Beemish!
    • Dr. Garth: Oh, yes. It's Dr. Beemish now, is it? Well, Doctor, how would you like to go back to the zoo and find a nice, empty cage?
    • Dr. Beemish - Chief of Staff: I beg your pardon!
    • [pounding his fist]
    • Dr. Beemish - Chief of Staff: This is Dr. Beemish of St. Mary's Hospital!
    • Dr. Garth: Oh... oh, I say, Doctor. I'm profoundly sorry. I... You see, I... what?
    • Dr. Beemish - Chief of Staff: I've called about Lady Anstruther.
    • Dr. Garth: Oh.
    • Sandor: Wait.
    • Lili: Leave me alone! I haven't done anything to anybody.
    • Sandor: The river is cold and dark. I know where there is warmth, and food, and money.
    • Lili: I don't want your kind of money.
    • Sandor: My mistress is an artist. She will pay you if you will pose for her tonight. There's nothing to fear. Come.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: The loss of blood. The marks on the neck. Hmm. I don't understand, gentlemen. I don't see how it can be, but those are the marks of the vampire.
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: Well, it becomes increasingly evident, owing to the disappearance of Dracula's body and the subsequent evidence, that he isn't dead at all.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: No vampire can survive the stake.
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: Well, he may have given the appearance of death. During the day the body lay at Whitby and come to life at night. Oh, dash it all! You've got me talking this gibberish now.
    • Janet Blake: Well! You might say, "Good evening."
    • Dr. Garth: Good evening. What are you doing here? I thought you'd severed all connections with the hospital.
    • Janet Blake: I changed my mind.
    • Dr. Garth: I detest vacillating women.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Oh, good evening, Miss Blake. Is Dr. Garth here?
    • Janet Blake: I'm sorry. He's just left.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Oh.
    • Miss Peabody - Nurse: May I go to supper now, Dr. Garth?
    • Dr. Garth: Yes, yes, by all means. Go ahead.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: Why was it necessary to lie?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: You're a great doctor. A doctor of minds, of souls. I need you, Dr. Garth. I need you to save my soul.
    • Dr. Garth: How can you expect me even to listen to you, when you're concealing the truth about yourself?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: But I have told you all I can now.
    • Dr. Garth: You mean, you've told me all you dare.
    • Janet Blake: Where's Dr. Garth?
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: He'll be back presently. Won't you sit down? I'd like to talk to you.
    • Janet Blake: Well, I'm sure we've nothing to discuss, Countess Zaleska.
    • Countess Marya Zaleska: We might talk of Dr, Garth. He's interested in both of us.
    • Janet Blake: I'm quite aware of his interest in you, Countess, as a psychiatrist.
    • Hobbs: Will you take your barley water now, sir?
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: Barley water, barley water. Get me my heavy topcoat and revolver. I'm going out after vampires!
    • Hobbs: Vampires?
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: Vampires! Ha, ha, ha!
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: But I always understood you went after them with checkbooks, sir.
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: Hobbs, don't be facetious.
    • Hobbs: No, sir.
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: I knew I should have turned off my telephone last night.
    • [last lines]
    • Sir Basil Humphrey: The woman is beautiful.
    • Prof. Von Helsing: She was beautiful when she died, a hundred years ago.
