Bristol 1665

Inquisitor: Your teeth will be smashed from your skull, as a warning to other devils. And your head will be removed from your body… {checks the back of the scroll.} No, that’s it actually. Proceed!

Lucy (Lyndsey Marshal): Gotta say, I’ve never seen the condition in a hospital porter before. I suppose the bad working conditions have driven you to believe in a monotheist deity.
Mitchell: That’s what happens when you haven’t got a strong trade union.

George: Why hasn’t anyone gone shopping?
Annie: Well I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been struggling with the whole “ghost” thing the last few days. Strangely, being invisible makes purchasing Pyramid tea bags a touch awkward.

George: You can’t go interfering with people’s lives like that.
Annie: It’s not interfering, it’s more like regime change.
George: Oh, ’cause that’s never gone wrong.

Mitchell: You know why I’m here, Chief Constable.
Chief Constable Wilson (Ian Puleston-Davies): I assume you’re the new Herrick.
Mitchell: Okay, so firstly, no. I’m not the new Herrick. This… I’m not even standing here. This is just… I’m a representative.
Wilson: So. Represent.

Wilson: You boys have access to money, don’t you?
Mitchell: Well. We made a couple of good investments in the eighteen hundreds.

Mitchell: Listen to me. The killing has to stop. Things have changed. The old system that allowed you to kill, that doesn’t exist anymore. The world we knew—the world you came into—that’s gone. And you have to accept that.
Cara (Rebecca Cooper): So what are we supposed to do?
Mitchell: Go clean. Renounce blood.

Mitchell: Do you people have any fucking idea who I am? My name is John Mitchell. And I’ve killed more people than you’ve met. If I can do it, so can you.

Daisy (Amy Manson): Some of us chose this life, but for most of us it was forced on them. And now here you are putting restrictions on a lifestyle they didn’t even want. “Stop drinking!” “Stay in the shadows!”
Mitchell: I did it.
Daisy: Except, from what I hear, there were a few false starts.

Mitchell: You will not feed. And if anyone—anyone—steps out of line, I’ll kill ’em myself.

Annie: I think that we’ve all just lost sight of each other a bit. We need to team build. We need to bond.
George: I’m not going to paintball, not again. Not after last time.

Annie: Did you know that gypsies are born with six toes and that’s why they never wear flip flops?
George: I don’t think that’s actually true.

Hugh (Nathan Wright): About a year ago she just turns around and tells me that I’m just too conventional for her. That I lack imagination and passion.
George: Women. They just don’t appreciate solid, stable, reliable men.
Hugh: She even hated the way I wash up. You know, just because I like to dry, all right? And put everything away, and not leave it dripping on the rack.
George: Oh, oh! So she’d prefer lime scale on the draining board?
Hugh: Oh, I guess it could go with the coffee rings on the table.
George: Coasters! You just put one under the mug. It’s not rocket science.

Annie: She’s so not natural blonde. Bet you anything, cuffs and collar don’t match.
George: Oh. I’m not even going to ask what that means.

Mitchell: If we’re exposed there will be huge suffering on both sides. History has shown that.
Quinn (John Stahl): No, history has shown us that the end never justifies the means. That’s always the road to hell.

Mitchell: You think we targeted them?
Wilson: All I’m saying is, stick with repeat offenders and it’s win-win. What happened with Balfour was unfortunate. He was collateral damage. But the main thing is, the system is in place. This is how it works. What? You expect it to be pretty?

Annie: Your mission is to become her boyfriend but to be absolutely crap at it.
George: Well, I can’t do that.
Annie: Well of course you can! Look what a fuck up you made of your last relationship.

Kirsty (Lauren O’Neil): That was just amazing!
George: Clowns. So many clowns.

George: You’ve put the system back in place, haven’t you?
Mitchell: It’s the only way to control them.
George: Right. So killing’s okay again now, is it?
Mitchell: This is just the short term.
George: And the long term?
Mitchell: I’m gonna help them get off blood. It’s the only way, George! I can do this. I can persuade them.
George: Oh, so this is before or after you walk on water?

Mitchell: This isn’t a fucking show!
Daisy: Justice has to be seen to be done, Mitchell. Or what’s the point? Do it properly, you’ll never have to do it again.

Mitchell: Cara’s been executed.
All: The king is dead, long live the king!

Nina: I can’t talk for very long, I’m just… I’m ringing to say goodbye properly.
George: Are you all right? Where are you?
Nina: I’m fine. Listen, there are some things I need to say to you. You
need to stop using the curse as an excuse not to live your life. You’re a wonderful man. You can make a go of things. Get a better job, get out in the world, even… find love again one day. I want you to promise me you’ll start to live your life now.

George: I love you, Nina.
Nina: I love you too. I always will.
George: What are you going to do?
Nina: Something wonderful. Goodbye George.

Kemp (Donald Sumpter): You know God loves you very much. Isn’t that right, Professor Jaggat?
Professor Lucy Jaggat: Yes Nina. He loves you so much.
