[At start and voice over] There comes a time for every vampire when the idea of eternity becomes momentarily unbearable. Living in the shadows, feeding in the darkness with only your own company to keep, rots into a solitary, hollow existence. Immortality seems like a good idea, until you realize you're going to spend it alone. So I went to sleep, hoping that the sounds of the passing eras would fade out, and a sort of death might happen. But as I lay there, the world didn't sound like the place I had left, but something different. [rock music starts] Better. It became worthwhile to rise again as new gods were born and worshipped. Night and day, they were never alone. I would become one of them. [feeds on pimp] Whether it was that first meal, or a hundred years of rest, I'm not sure. But suddenly I was feeling better than ever. My senses so high they led me straight to the instrument of my resurrection, playing in my old house.


[in a TV interview cast worldwide, talking to all the vampires listening] Come out, come out, wherever you are.

(To Jessie) Well, I can change that.

Join me or die!

I have come to give you the world.

See my children, remember your real family, or join hers.

Just the same, I'd like you to kill her. For me

You've just earned your crown.

Oh, I've been listening for a long, long time. And all I can hear is ignorance and stupidity.

You have yearned for a companion to share eternity. You have cried out to the world. I have answered your call

Lestat: But I never understood until I met you.
Jessie: What do you mean?
Lestat: You're beautiful to me because you're human. Your frailty, your short years, your heart; even as you think it's breaking. All that seems suddenly more precious than anything I've ever known.
Jessie: I'm not as precious as you think.

Jesse: Boo.
Lestat: Boo back.

Jessie: Thanks.
Lestat: For what?
Jessie: You saved me.
Lestat: How presumptuous.

Lestat: A London goth. It's funny. I would have pegged you for a Talamascan.
Jessie: Maybe in another lifetime.
LA Groupie: I'm an a Episcopalian!
Roger: And I'm a friggin Buddhist. Uh, Lestat...
Lestat: Roger, would you take our little Episcopalian back to church?

Lestat: Boo. That was quite a preformance. You should learn to be more careful. So, you know Marius?
Jessie: I know a lot of things.
Lestat: Not how to stay alive, apparently.
Jessie: O, I guess we have that in common, though I think I'm a little ahead of the race, here.
Lestat: Well, I can fix that.
Jessie: Your song "Redeemer" is about the girl with the violin?
Lestat: Yes. And what else do you think you know?
Jessie: You want...
Lestat: What do I want?
Jessie: You yearn...
Lestat: What do I yearn... what do I yearn...
Jessie: To walk with the living... out of the cold dark waste land of eternity.
Lestat: Very good, Talamascan. I knew I left that journal somewhere.
