Christopher Lee Quotes:
Marie Eaton: [rushes into the room with husband Richard carrying Peggy] She's alright!
[Sees Tanith standing there]
Marie Eaton: Tanith!
Duc de Richleau: Time itself has been reversed for us. Tanith's death; Peggy's abduction; the ride to Chilbury; the ritual in the cellar... all these things happened. But now, they have not happened. We're back. We are all safe again.
Simon Aron: And is Mocata also safe?
Duc de Richleau: You will also remember, Simon, what I said to you about the Angel of Death once being summoned...
Simon Aron: ...cannot return empty handed!
Duc de Richleau: Exactly. Tanith has been restored to us. But the age old law demands a life for a life, a soul for a soul. And there is only one man in all this world who could replace her life, her soul. The man who invoked the Angel of Death. Mocata *is* dead.
Simon Aron: Thank God!
Duc de Richleau: Yes Simon. He is the one we must thank.
Paul Allen: [as the scantily clad Maria walks by their table going to her dressing room] Ah, Maria! The unattainable Eve with her apples and snakes.
Maria: [Politely] It's a pleasure to see you again, Mr. Allen.
Paul Allen: You have a new admirer, my dear, Mr. Edward Hyde.
Dr. Henry Jekyll: [Obviously attracted to her] Enchanted! My sincere compliments.
Maria: You are most kind, Mr. Hyde.
Paul Allen: That's natural manners. She only uses Christian names in bed.
[Insulted, Maria throws a drink from the table in his face]
Prof. Karl Meister: [Contemptuously to Inspector Kanof] Don't use long words, Inspector; they don't suit you.
