ETHAN: Got any idea about who else would want you dead, last night?
ELLIE:A lot of people want me dead! But right now I can't figure out who'd throw a stake at me! Unless...
ETHAN: Unless what?
ELLIE: Nothing, just some crap...
ETHAN: Can I trust that what happened last night stays between the two of us?
ELLIE: I won't talk!
ETHAN: So are you coming to the party?

MILES: I know dad...
MICHAEL: If you knew then why did you move my hand?
MILES: Because dad, don't you think it's a little to soon to be making enemies with these people?
MICHAEL: Miles what have I told you...they are vampires and what do vampires do?
MILES: They take away lives of innocent people and don't think twice about it.
MICHAEL: Exactly...now take this stake.
MILES: What do you want me to do?
MICHAEL: When you go to Kristin's party tonight you will stake the first vampire you get a chance to be alone with, do I make myself clear?

EMMA: That night in the library?
EMMA: Come on Symone, ever since Kristin met Ethan Proudmore and you've been hanging with him to...it's like you guys don't even have time for me anymore.
SYMONE: Emma, you know that's not true
EMMA: Look it is true, okay so how bout you guys just stay away from me!
SYMONE: No, because Kristin's party is tonight, and she needs her friends. Emma we care about you, we're not shunning you, remember you and Aron used to be inseparable.

ETHAN: All I want is you!
ELLIE: Oh, please! I'm going to start feeling sick if you go on with this soap opera!
KRISTIN: Whatever! (LEAVES)
ELLIE: Alright so now what do we do?
ETHAN: We have fun! Just for once! What could happen?
ELLIE: Well um...the person that tried to stake us...could wander in here.
ETHAN: Like he'd risk staking us in public?
ELLIE: Whatever...I have to go to the bathroom.

(PROUDMORE HOUSE: ETHAN, SYMONE, ELLIE, AND KRISTIN TALK)
ETHAN: I've already told you! He is transitioning, which means that he may not make it!
ELLIE: You got that right because I'm going to stake him.
ETHAN: No you are not! It's not your decision to make!
KRISTIN: I'm not letting you kill him!
ETHAN: I say we deal with him in the morning, as right now he is adapting to his new senses... Are you ok with that?
ELLIE: Yea fine.
SYMONE: The only thing we can do is help him
KRISTIN: What about Aron?
ETHAN: I'll deal with him and Emma later!
KRISTIN: Well I better be getting home (KISSES ETHAN)
