Memorable Quotes
 
Frankenstein's Monster: Let me go!
Carl: Where are you going to go? I don't know if you've looked in the mirror lately, but you kind of stick out in a crowd.
 
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Igor... Do unto others...
Igor: Before they do it unto me!
 
Top Hat: I see the Wolfman hasn't killed you yet.
Van Helsing: Don't worry. He's getting to it.
 
Carl: Why does it smell like wet dog in here?
Van Helsing: Werewolf.
Carl: Oh, yes. You'll be needing silver bullets.
[throws canister of bullets to Van Helsing rather deftly]
 
Anna Valerious: He's the first one to kill a vampire in over a hundred years. I'd say that's earned him a drink.
 
Van Helsing: Whatever you do, don't stare at him.
Carl: [nudge inside the coach with Frankenstein] I'm staring at him.
[Quickly turns away]
Carl: Is that a man?
Van Helsing: Actually, it's seven men, parts of them anyway.
 
Count Vladislaus Dracula: [as Igor is poking a werewolf with a cattle prod] Why do you torment him so?
Igor: That's what I do.
 
Van Helsing: That's why you're coming with me.
Carl: The hell be damned that I am.
Van Helsing: You cursed. Not very well, mind you, but you're a monk. You shouldn't curse at all.
Carl: Actually, I'm still just a friar. I can curse all I want. Dammit.
 
Van Helsing: You're a genius!
Carl: A genius with access to unstable chemicals!
 
Van Helsing: There's something down here, it's carnivorous. Whatever it is it appears to be... human. I'd say it's a size 17, about 360 pounds, 8 and a half to 9 feet tall and he has a bad gimp in his right leg and, ah, 3 copper teeth.
Anna Valerious: How do you know he has copper teeth?
Van Helsing: 'Cause he's standing right behind you.
 
Mr. Hyde: So, you're the great Van Helsing.
Van Helsing: And you're a deranged psychopath.
Mr. Hyde: We all have our little problems.
 
Van Helsing: Now, my superiors would like for me to take you alive, so that they might extricate your better half.
Mr. Hyde: [laughing] I'll bet they bloody would.
Van Helsing: Personally, I'd rather just kill you and call it a day. But let's make it your decision, shall we?
Mr. Hyde: [pretends to think] Hmm, do let's.
[attacks him]
 
Van Helsing: Carl, I need you to do something
Carl: I'm not gonna like this am I?
 
Count Vladislaus Dracula: You can't kill me, Victor.
[Dracula pushes himself onto the sword Dr. Frankenstein is wielding]
Count Vladislaus Dracula: I'm already dead
 
Van Helsing: I missed you in London.
Mr. Hyde: No, you bloody did not. You got me good.
[shows Van Helsing a bullet wound]
 
Dr. Victor Frankenstein: Before I would allow him to be used for such evil, I would destroy him.
Count Vladislaus Dracula: I cannot allow that to happen. My brides would be very put out.
 
Dr. Victor Frankenstein: Good God... I would kill myself before helping in such a task.
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Feel free. I don't actually need you anymore, Victor. I just need him... he is the key.
 
Velkan: I would rather die than help you.
Count Vladislaus Dracula: Don't be boring, everyone who says that dies.
 
Aleera: Don't play coy with me, Princess, you're just like all the other pretty little ancestors in your family. Saying you want to destroy my master, but I know what lurks in your lusting heart.
Anna Valerious: I hope you have a heart, Aleera, because someday I'm going to drive a stake through it.
