AMELIA: I'm just protecting you from...
SYMONE: From what?

SYMONE: I'll see you tonight (LEAVES)
(KRISTIN AND ETHAN AT THE CAFE BAR)
ETHAN: So... suppose I want to tell you something that's very important to me, but I need to be shure that you won't try to change the way I feel about you after I tell you this..
KRISTIN: Ethan I told you whatever you do...as long as your honest I will always be there for you.
ETHAN: Kristin, do you belive in myths?
KRISTIN: Depends on what they are
ETHAN: Supernatural beings, like ghosts... Do you belive in them? Have you ever seen a ghost?
KRISTIN: Well I believe in ghosts...but no I've never seen one.
ETHAN: Never dreamt of your father, before he passed away?
KRISTIN: Well there was this dream after he died...but that was a year after he died.
ETHAN: What I didn't tell you is that I had a sister, and she died a few yers ago... She was the most kind and trusting person I've ever met... But she was too good for this world...
KRISTIN: I'm sorry...I'm going on and on about my dad, but I didn't realize that you have family too. Your sister souded pretty cool.
ETHAN: I had a family, once, a long time ago...
KRISTIN: What do you mean you had a family a long time ago...they shun you out of their lives?
ETHAN: They've all died...
KRISTIN: I'm so sorry (HUGS HIM).
ETHAN: I don't know how to put this into words, so I'll just say it now: I'm not human!
KRISTIN: (LETS HIM GO) What?
ETHAN: I know how strange this sounds, but I just want you to hear me out, and then, at the end of the day, I want you to decide if you think our relationship can go on from where it's standing right now...
KRISTIN: If you're not human than what are you?
ETHAN: I'm a vampire!
KRISTIN: A vampire? (BACKS UP A LITTLE)
ETHAN: I won't do you any harm, I swear... I don't want you to fear me...
KRISTIN: It's a little late for that...come on tell me the truth what are you?
ETHAN: I've already told you: I'm a vampire! And yes, I feed on human blood...
KRISTIN: I can't do this right now
ETHAN: It's too late to back out now... You wanted to hear it, and now you will...
KRISTIN: All this long...(CALMS DOWN) Just tell me how it happened
ETHAN: Trust me... There are a lot of secrets out there, and It's as hard for me to tell you this as it is for you to listen!
ETHAN: It all began in 1823, when I was 17...

ALEXANDRA: Who are you?
CHASE: I think the better question would be who are you?
ALEXANDRA: Are you seriousley asking me that! You came into this house and are snooping around...
CHASE: That's because Ethan Proudmore told me to get something
ALEXANDRA: What would that be?
CHASE: This necklace (HOLDS IT UP)
ALEXANDRA: If he told you to get it, then you know where he is.
CHASE: Yeah he's in school!
ALEXANDRA: Wrong answer, thief! Now tell me who you are before I call the police!

(ALEXANDRA POINTS OUT HER FANGS)
(HENRY DOES THE SAME)
ALEXANDRA: Now are you going to torture me until I tell you something I don't know?

ETHAN: Me and Arielle, we've searched for that vampire for centuries and we couldn't find him! We had to learn to addapt!
KRISTIN: So...should I take all the garlic out of my pantry when you come over for dinner?
ETHAN: No need to do that! I love garlic!
KRISTIN: So you're the only vampire in town?
ETHAN: Actualy there are a few more. Out of which one is Alexandra, who you met at the Town's Party... She is older than she looks, trust me!
KRISTIN: So...it's just you and her?
ETHAN: You will find out the rest later! I see you are not afraid...
KRISTIN: Oh trust me i'm afraid, but as long as your older than these vampires I'm safe.
ETHAN: So what are you going to do, about us?
KRISTIN: I haven't decided yet tell me more of the story
