Episode Quotes

Alix: Dean, look at me. He's controlling you; you've gotta come back and - fight this guy.
Dean Berkham: ...You're my best friend, Alix.
Alix: I *am*!... Come back.
Dean Berkham: That's why I'm gonna let you go. Don't get in my way.

Dean Berkham: It doesn't matter anyway. You'll be one of us soon enough.
Alix: I get the feeling your luck's about to change.
Dean Berkham: Great. Just as long as it doesn't get any *worse*.
Eric: [she announces she's the night's storyteller, holding the skull from the "corpse" dummy Frank and Kiki scared the others with] Ah, another gore-fest?
Betty Ann: *My* story's about the head of a different sort - an ancient wizard's good-luck charm. Pick it up, and the world can be your oyster. But let the holder beware: this charm may be more than you bargained for.
