True Blood

True Blood

True Blood is an American dark fantasy horror television series produced and created by Alan Ball and based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries, a series of novels by Charlaine Harris. The series revolves around Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress living in the rural town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. Two years after the invention of a synthetic blood branded “Tru Blood,” vampires are able to "come out of the coffin" and allow their presence to be known to mankind. Now they are struggling for equal rights and assimilation, while anti-vampire organizations begin to gain power. Sookie's world is turned upside down when she falls in love with 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and for the first time must navigate the trials, tribulations, and terrors of intimacy and relationships. The show was broadcast on the premium cable network HBO, in the United States, and was produced by HBO in association with Ball's production company, Your Face Goes Here Entertainment. The series premiered on September 7, 2008 and concluded on August 24, 2014, comprising seven seasons and 80 episodes. The first five seasons received highly positive reviews, and both nominations and wins for several awards, including a Golden Globe and an Emmy.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[finishing her dessert] It's a good thing you don't eat, 'cause I wouldn't share it with anyone. I think of a better way to top off the best meal of my life.

Bill Compton:
I do have one last thing.

[hands her an envelope]

Sookie Stackhouse:
[opening it] Plane tickets?... Where's Burlington?

Bill Compton:
It's in Vermont.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Why would we...

Bill Compton:
Here's the other part.

[takes out a jewel box and pushes it to her hands. She opens it to find a diamond ring]

Bill Compton:
Ms. Stackhouse, will you do me the honor of becoming my wife? That is assuming last night did not scare you off weddings for good.

[as she says nothing]

Bill Compton:
Sookie, say something.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[tearing up] I've dreamed of this since I was a little girl... In my dreams I always say 'yes'.

Bill Compton:
Than it ought to be easy.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Then why can't I say it? My heart's flying around in my chest. I can't even think straight. My life's inside out. With all that's happened I'm not sure about anything. I don't even know if I'm human!

Bill Compton:
What?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Maybe I am some kind of freak. I've only met one other person in the world like me and who even knows where he is? And what happens when I grow old and weak and you're still the same, what then?

Bill Compton:
Sookie, I don't care about any of that. I want you just as you are.

Sookie Stackhouse:
But I'm not even sure what I am!

Bill Compton:
Are you saying no?

Sookie Stackhouse:
No, I'm saying... I don't know what I'm saying. I need a minute to clean myself up. I'm sorry.

[leaves the table]

Sookie Stackhouse:
[after pulling him outside of Merlottes] You know my friend who works here, Dawn? Some one killed her last night.

Bill Compton:
How?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Say you're sorry.

Bill Compton:
Excuse me?

Sookie Stackhouse:
You wanna learn to fit in with people, you gotta say you're sorry. You don't even have to mean it. Lord knows they don't most the time.

Bill Compton:
[trying] I am sorry.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Thank you. Anyway, I'm the one who found her. Strangled. Cops think it was my brother.

Bill Compton:
Was it?

Sookie Stackhouse:
No, he's not capable of it.

Bill Compton:
I've been around long enough to know just about anyone is capable of just about anything.

Sookie Stackhouse:
He didn't do it. So I've been listenin' in on peoples' thoughts, hopin' I might hear somethin' to clear him and apparently there's this vampire bar where Maudette and Dawn use to hang out at in Shreeveport. You know it?

Bill Compton:
Fangtasia.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Fang-tasia?

Bill Compton:
You have to remember that most vampires are very old. Puns used to be the highest form of humor.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Well I was thinkin' if I went there, I could do some sniffin' around. You think maybe you could take me?

Bill Compton:
[smiling slightly] How 'bout tonight?

Sookie Stackhouse:
The sooner the better. I just gotta tell Sam I'm leaving and run home and change.

Bill Compton:
Meet you there.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Thank you. Bill, I'm asking you this as a friend, okay? This is not a date.

Bill Compton:
Fine.

Sookie Stackhouse:
It's not a date. I'm serious.

Bill Compton:
[still smiling] As am I.

Jerry McCafferty:
Oregon has rallied in anticipation of the state's upcoming ratification vote on the Vampire Rights Ammendment. Polls show the measure gaining support in recent months although nearly twenty percent of the country remains undecided.

[Suddenly Russell appears behind Jerry. His fist comes through Jerry's chest and then rips out Jerry's spine. People in the studio are heard screaming]

Russell Edgington:
Does that help you decide America? Do not turn off the camera! You've seen how quickly I can kill. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Russell Edgington, and I have been a vampire for nearly three-thousand years! Now, the American Vampire League wishes to perpetrate the notion that we are just like you, and, I suppose, in a few small ways we are. We're narcissists. We care only about getting what we want no matter what the cost, just like you. Global warming, perpetual war, toxic waste, child labor, torture, genocide... That's a small price to pay for your SUVs and your flat screen TVs, your blood diamonds, your... designer jeans, your absurd garish McMansions! Futile symbols of permanence to quell your... your quivering, spineless souls. But no, in the end, we... are... nothing... like you! We are... immortal! Because we drink the true blood! Blood that is living, organic, and human. Mmm! And that is the truth the AVL wishes to conceal from you, because let's face it, eating people is a tough sell these days, so they put on their friendly faces to pass their beloved VRA, but make no mistake: mine is the true face of vampires! Why... would we... seek... equal... rights? You... are not... our equals! We will eat you! After we eat your children! Now time for the weather. Tiffany?

Franklin Mott:
Don't, don't. It's an ugly, ugly sound.

Tara Thornton:
I-I killed you.

Franklin Mott:
That's what everyone said. That you did it. I thought why would anyone spread such vicious lies? Why would you kill someone that you loved?

Tara Thornton:
I do not love you.

Franklin Mott:
They said that too. That, I refused to believe. I had to see for myself. You wanna know what hurts the most? That you didn't mourn. If you had a shred of love in your heart for me... you would have mourned me! I love you so much.

Tara Thornton:
You don't love anything. You can't. Because you are a psychopath. You violated me and terrorized me, because that's what vampires do. And you're calling that love.

Franklin Mott:
I'll mourn you, Tara. I'll mourn you to my very marrow. The only pity is that you will never know how much I will grieve.

[Franklin extends his fangs]

Tara Thornton:
Come on! If you're gonna f***ing kill me, kill me! What's taking you so long? You want to hear me beg for my life? Is that it? It's the only thing y'all can feel. The destruction of life, because you ain't got none in you. You sick motherf***er, I won't give you the satisfaction!

Franklin Mott:
Why do you want to die so much? Why do you want to make me kill you?

Tara Thornton:
Because the second I'm gone, I'll be rid of you forever. I'll be free and you'll have nothing!

[He chokes her]

Franklin Mott:
Shut up! Shut up! Oh, your heart is beating so fast. I want to feel it stop.

[Jason appears holding his shotgun]

Jason Stackhouse:
Take your hands off her.

Franklin Mott:
This is a private conversation. It's none of your concern. Run along.

Jason Stackhouse:
Move the f*** away.

Franklin Mott:
What, you gonna shoot me now? You do realize I'm a vampire. You could empty every round in me and I'll heal.

[Jason fires and hits Franklin in the chest. Franklin explodes into a puddle of blood]

Jason Stackhouse:
Not if I got wooden bullets.

Sophie-Anne:
What gives you the right to say "no" to the femoral blood of a good human woman? You know what your problem is, William? You're a snob. I hate snobs. I also hate tiny, tiny souls... or penises.

[to Hadley]

Sophie-Anne:
Get out.

[to Bill]

Sophie-Anne:
Have you eaten?

Bill Compton:
Not tonight, but...

Sophie-Anne:
I have several new members at court. A Latvian boy. Has to be tasted to be believed. Not polluted like most humans. Just exactly the way they use to taste just after I was turned. Before the Industrial Revolution f***ed everything to hell. Should I summon him?

Bill Compton:
[slightly chagrined] No, thank you. There are pressing matters at hand that I need your help with. I need to know how to kill a maenad.

Sophie-Anne:
A maenad, in Bon Temps? That's random.

Bill Compton:
Yes. She seems to have caused some sort of mass hypnosis. The whole town has devolved to a primitive state in a matter of days.

Sophie-Anne:
Oh my. She's an old one. Well, they're all old. Relics.

Bill Compton:
Ancient Greece, correct?

Sophie-Anne:
Before that even. Orgies, sacrifice?

Bill Compton:
Yes.

Sophie-Anne:
Cannibalism?

Bill Compton:
We suspect.

Sophie-Anne:
Oh, finally!

Bill Compton:
So, how do I kill it?

Sophie-Anne:
You can't. She's convinced herself she's immortal and so she is... William surly you know everything that exists imagined itself into existence.

Bill Compton:
Umm... I'm not entirely familiar with that theory, no.

Sophie-Anne:
[musing] Well, think about it. Imagine that you're a wild young girl who's married to some jerk who treats you like property and is also f***ing some 14-year-old boy. And along comes this religion which encourages you to get hammered, run naked through the woods, have sex with who ever, what ever, and it's all part of getting closer to God?

Bill Compton:
I can see how that would have it's appeal, especially to humans with their tendencies towards puritanism.

Sophie-Anne:
Exactly! So you're f***ing everybody in the dirt, why not kill something and eat it raw? Hey, you're super pious. There's nothing you can't do and each time you do, it brings you one step closer to the divine.

Bill Compton:
Isn't that delusional?

Sophie-Anne:
Never under-estimate the power of blind faith. It manifests in ways that bend the laws of physics or breaks them entirely.

Jason Stackhouse:
Why ain't you never liked me, Andy? Was it because of how much p*ssy I get?

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
No.

Jason Stackhouse:
'Cause I ain't never taken any p*ssy away from you. There is more than enough p*ssy to go around.

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
It ain't about p*ssy! I just think you've had everything to easy.

Jason Stackhouse:
What have I ever had that was easy?

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
You were all-state quarter back.

Jason Stackhouse:
You think that was easy? I'm startin' to have knee issues and I ain't even thirty yet. What else?

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
Well yeah, women do just throw themselves at you. You don't even have to do anything.

Jason Stackhouse:
Yeah well, actually I do. I work out like a mother-f***er and I watch a lotta porn to learn stuff. What else?... My best friend killed my grandma and my girlfriend. I come from no money. My momma and daddy died when I was eleven.

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
So did mine!

Jason Stackhouse:
Your daddy died in Vietnam, but your momma ran off with some yankee race car driver. You may hate me, Andy Bellefleur. You may think you're better than me and maybe you are. But you and me are the ones who have received the callin' to save this town! So obviously God wants us to bury the hatchet.

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
[understanding] It's all up to us, aint' it?

Jason Stackhouse:
It is and we can't f*** it up.

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
[certain] We won't f*** it up.

Jason Stackhouse:
This town might be full of crazy rednecks and dumb-asses, but they're still Americans.

Detective Andy Bellefleur:
That used to mean something.

Jason Stackhouse:
It still does!

Bill Compton:
Long Shadow was choking the girl and would have killed her.

Magister:
So you murdered a higher life form for the sake of your pet! You broke an acient and fundimental law. You decreased our numbers at a critical time in our history. Very bad. Very, very bad.

Bill Compton:
Magister, Long Shadow broke the law first. She was mine and he knew it. He would have killed her and fed from her!

Magister:
[displeased] Hello! Human! Irrelevant. Happens every day!

Bill Compton:
He was stealing from Eric.

Magister:
Sheriff?

Eric Northman:
Yes, Magister. It's true. Long Shadow was a thief and a liar. He was hurting my business.

Magister:
[considering] The business part, that is a serious offense.

Bill Compton:
And it was the human who exposed Long Shadow. Would you tell him, Eric?

Eric Northman:
The only reason the girl was there was because I called her.

Bill Compton:
To protect your wealth!

Eric Northman:
To protect my wealth, yes. Magister, she is... valuable.

Magister:
Humans exist to serve us. That is their only value.

Bill Compton:
There are those among us who think differently.

Magister:
[challenging] Do you question my authority? I am the magister. I was trained in the Inquisition and I am the adjudicator for every vampire territory in North America! As the humans say, the humans you love more than your own kind, back your sh*t down!

Eric Northman:
[warningly] Bill.

Magister:
Well, you haven't bored me. That works in your favor. And you seem to be obedient to your sheriff.

Eric Northman:
For the most part... When it matters, yes he is.

Magister:
The usual sentence is five years in a coffin, chained with silver. During which time your body will waste to leather and sticks. You'll probably go insane. However, I'm feeling a bit... creative.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Another first.

Bill Compton:
How do you mean?

Sookie Stackhouse:
We've never had 'make up' sex before.

Bill Compton:
How does it compare to 'you thought I was dead' sex?

Sookie Stackhouse:
That was pretty great too, but I wouldn't want to go through that again. I hated feeling like I'd lost you.

Bill Compton:
Yet, you like fightin' me.

Sookie Stackhouse:
I don't like too. I just...

Bill Compton:
Let's not get too used to it then. We don't want to be one of 'those' couples.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You're right... holy f. I am so embarrassed, I could die.

Bill Compton:
What is it?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Jessica. I completely forgot she was here. Do you think she heard us?

Bill Compton:
No! If she had, she'd had no compunction about letting us know it.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You know you might wanna try going a little easier on her. It's hard enough being a teenager without...

Bill Compton:
She is a vampire, Sookie!

Sookie Stackhouse:
So are you. Yet parts of your former self are still in there. I wouldn't be with you if they weren't.

Bill Compton:
Yes... I've had to work extremely hard at finding my way back to my humanity. When a vampire is as new as Jessica is, she has no humanity. She is in the grips of an overwhelming transformations, there will be times when she cannot control even a single impulse... and believe me she 'has' many.

Sookie Stackhouse:
How is that any different from being a teenage girl? No humanity, check. In the grips of overwhelming transformations, check. Cannot control impulses, check. Alright, uh... how is that different?

Bill Compton:
Alright. So what do you suggest I do? Just spoil the girl? Give into her every whim and desire? After all that is what every teenage girl wants, isn't it?

Sookie Stackhouse:
You don't have to be sarcastic with me, Bill Compton. And should you at least think about what I'm sayin', if no other reason that what you're doing right now isn't working out so hot.

Bill Compton:
Hmmm.

Sookie Stackhouse:
How ironic. We promised each other we weren't gonna fight anymore, yet here we are.

Bill Compton:
This isn't a fight.

Sookie Stackhouse:
...Yes it is.

Bill Compton:
Well then. Prepare to be made up to.

Bill Compton:
[after Malcolm and his gang have left] I'm sorry you had to witness that. Your visit was unexpected.

Sookie Stackhouse:
What's hep D?

Bill Compton:
Hepatitis D is the only blood born pathogen to which we are subseptible. Malcolm must be furious.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Hepatitis?

Bill Compton:
A mutation. Relatively harmless to humans, oddly enough.

Sookie Stackhouse:
I've never even heard of it?

Bill Compton:
That's because we've kept it out of the media.

Sookie Stackhouse:
And it makes you sick for a year?

Bill Compton:
No. Just makes us weak for about a month or so. The biggest danger to us from hep D is being captured and staked during that time.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Yeah. You don't want your weaknesses to be public knowledge.

Bill Compton:
Precisely.

Sookie Stackhouse:
And what the hell did you mean, "Sookie is mine"?

Bill Compton:
I was communicating to the others that you were my human and therefore I was the only one who can feed on you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[furious] You most certainly can not feed on me!

Bill Compton:
Well of course I can't, Sookie. But had they known that, they'd have considered you fair game. And I wouldn't have been able to stop them from attacking you. It would be three against one. And Malcolm is much older than I am and quite strong.

Sookie Stackhouse:
And... you and Diane dated?

Bill Compton:
We had sex once, just after she was made vampire back in the late 1930's.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[sickened] What? Gross. Bill, she so- Th-they're all so mean, so...

Bill Compton:
Evil. Yes, they are. They share a nest and when vampires live in nests, they become more cruel, more vicious. They become laws unto themselves. Whereas vampires such as I, who live alone are much more likely to hang on to some semblance of our former humanity.

Bill Compton:
[waking up as she comes back to bed] I dreamed you were gone.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You did?... That's funny, 'cause I was.

Bill Compton:
[chiding] Sookie...

Sookie Stackhouse:
It was only for a few minutes. I had to. Bill, it's the most amazin' thing. I met another telepath and he's not a vampire or very good at it. Oh, it's wonderful knowin' there's somebody besides me.

Bill Compton:
You made him aware of your gift after everything I've said?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Not on purpose. We were in each other's heads before we knew it. I thought you'd be happy for me.

Bill Compton:
The more people know what you do, the harder it is for me to protect you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[about Barry] He can't even admit what he is to himself. He's not gonna do any talkin' about it.

Bill Compton:
You can't be sure.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Yes, I can. I'm good at this. Look, if all we're supposed to do in Dallas is shut up and take orders, I might as well be slingin' beers at Merlotte's. You're the one who told me I was more than a waitress.

Bill Compton:
You are. But...

Sookie Stackhouse:
What?

Bill Compton:
Never mind.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Talk to me. Lean on me. I've leaned on you plenty.

Bill Compton:
Well, here I am responsible for you and Jessica. Yet no decisions are mine. It makes me feel...

Sookie Stackhouse:
Like a human?

Bill Compton:
Like a waitress.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You're walkin' in my shoes and it's givin' you blisters.

Bill Compton:
Eric is strangely intent about all this. It's not like him. I don't trust it.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Don't you worry about Eric. We'll do the job and go home. A deal's a deal.

Bill Compton:
Sookie, you know what he's like. It's not like him to break a contract with a girl.

Sookie Stackhouse:
A woman... he needs me. He won't wanna make me mad.

Bill Compton:
...I can't lose you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You never will.

Stan:
You should have told me Eric hired a f***in' human, Isabel.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Now wait just a minute.

Bill Compton:
[about Sookie] Respect her!

Isabel:
[to Stan] I couldn't tell you, Stan. You've been off on your own for days.

Eric Northman:
Are you certain Godric was abducted by the Fellowship of the Sun?

Isabel:
No!

Stan:
Yes! They're the only ones with the organization and man-power.

Isabel:
But they're amateurs. It doesn't make any sense. This is Godric we're talking about. Two thousand years old.

Stan:
Old don't make you smart.

Isabel:
Besides there's not proof.

Sookie Stackhouse:
If they've got him, I'll hear it. That's my job.

Stan:
There's not reason to wait. We need to take these fanatics down. Full out attack. Exterminate them like the vermin they are.

Isabel:
[angrily sarcastic] Hmm, vampire hating church annihilated. Wonder who did it? F***ing brilliant!

Bill Compton:
I doubt the king of Texas would approve of the destruction of our international political agenda.

Stan:
F*** that. The great revelation is the biggest mistake we ever made.

Isabel:
Don't use Godric to make your own little power play.

Stan:
You're completely incompetent!

Eric Northman:
[almost yelling] What's happened to Godric that he surrounds himself with clowns?

Isabel:
We invited you as a courtesy. This is not you territory. You have no voice here.

Stan:
Yeah, sheriff. Why don't you run back on down to Louisiana. We don't need you or your puppets.

Eric Northman:
I'm not going anywhere.

Sookie Stackhouse:
I'm nobody's puppet!

Stan:
I have a plan.

Isabel:
It's not a plan. It's a movie!

Bill Compton:
[about Jessica] We can't turn her out. Not yet. She a very young vampire. At her age, with her impulses, she could be quite dangerous.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Where has she been tonight?

Bill Compton:
Here with me and before that with with Eric and Pam.

Sookie Stackhouse:
So there's no way she could have anything to do with that woman at Merlotte's with her heart missing?

Bill Compton:
No!... probably not.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[baffled] Two weeks and you never said anything. We've laid in bed for hours talking about my life, your life, the weather, and rules of football. And not once did you mention that you slept with and killed...

Bill Compton:
I did not!

Sookie Stackhouse:
...a seventeen year old girl.

Bill Compton:
Sookie, for a century and a half, I never turned a human... because I couldn't bare to inflict the suffering I felt when I was turned. The pain of that is not an easy thing to share.

Sookie Stackhouse:
If I'm with you and she's with, then she's with me. And I'm sure as heck sharing in that.

Bill Compton:
If I with held anything, it was only to protect you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
And if she stayed with Eric, I still wouldn't know. Would I? That's not protecting me. That's lying to me. How am I supposed to ever trust you if you keep something like that from me? What else are you keeping from me?

Bill Compton:
...Nothing.

Sookie Stackhouse:
I can't stay... not tonight.

Bill Compton:
Sookie?

Sookie Stackhouse:
I've shared every dark, horrible corner of my life with you. What makes you think I couldn't handle every bit of yours?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Jess, I feel like we got off to a bad start and it is totally my fault. I never got to hear your side of things, find out what you're like. None of that. Can you forgive me?

Jessica Hamby:
[skeptical] You really wanna get to know me?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Of course I do. You deserve that and frankly, I'm curious about you. I've just got one huge favor to ask. Give me tonight with my boyfriend and we'll have all night tomorrow to ourselves. Just us girls.

Jessica Hamby:
Sure. I mean I guess I got nothing but time now, right?

Sookie Stackhouse:
[as Jessica leaves] Good night.

Bill Compton:
Must say I'm impressed. It's almost like you glamoured her.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Did you have anything to do with Uncle Bartlett's death?

Bill Compton:
...He hurt you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[stunned] Oh my god. Is it that easy for you to kill? Does human life mean so little, you can just kill on command? Toss someone in the water? I can't have people dyin' every time I confide in you. I never felt more inhuman than when I had to kill Rene. It still haunts me and now you're made me feel like I killed another person. I feel sick... I always thought as different as we are, some how we can still be together. And now I don't know. I don't know anything...

[almost crying]

Sookie Stackhouse:
Please says something, Bill.

[walking away]

Bill Compton:
[catching her at the door] Sookie... I cannot and I will not lose you. For all the ways I have dismayed, aggrieved or failed you, I swear I will atone. But I am not sorry. I refuse to apologize for what you have awakened in me. You, you are my miracle, Sookie. For the first time in a hundred and forty years, I felt something I thought had been lost to me forever... I love you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[crying] God damn it, Bill Compton. I love you.

Amy Burley:
[outside the bar] Hey you. Listen, you alright?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Sometimes I wish I smoked, you know, so you could sneak outside without anybody knowing something's wrong with you.

Amy Burley:
[understanding] Okay. I'm really sorry about your cat.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Maybe I shouldn't have come in today.

Amy Burley:
Yeah, I was gonna say why did you?

Sookie Stackhouse:
I don't know. Maybe 'cause lately it seems like if I called in sick everytime somebody I loved got mudered, I'd never make it in for a single day of work.

Amy Burley:
Well, don't you think Sam would understand?

Sookie Stackhouse:
I guess. But if I went home, what would you do?

Amy Burley:
Me? What's it got to do with me?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Well, with Arlene doing nothin but showin' off her ring to anybody who will look at it, you'd be the only one waiting tables.

Amy Burley:
Yeah, she's gonna be a handful, that one.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Can you imagine what she was like the first time she got married? What about you? You ever been married?

Amy Burley:
Is this the part where the sister asks what the girl's intentions are with her brother?

Sookie Stackhouse:
Hm-mm. 'Cause right now I am all about protecting Jason.

Amy Burley:
He misses you, Sookie.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Right.

Amy Burley:
No, he does. I mean, between your grandma passing and then what happened afterwords with you.

Sookie Stackhouse:
He told you about that?

Amy Burley:
He couldn't not. I mean, he's a mess about it.

Sookie Stackhouse:
Well you wouldn't know it.

Amy Burley:
Look, I know what you must think of him, and I get why you're mad at him, I do. But he loves you. You still got people around you who love you. And all I can hope is that maybe one day I can be counted in among those people.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[pauses] You are way too good for him. You know that, right?

Amy Burley:
[almost laughing] Of course, I know that. I'm not stupid.

Bill Compton:
[to Sookie] Are you still angry about our fight? Sookie, none of that matters anymore.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You're right. I'm alive and in one piece. Unlike my friend Lafayette who Eric chained up like an animal and left to bleed to death.

Bill Compton:
What?

Sookie Stackhouse:
You better not have known anything about this, Bill Compton. Because if you did, I don't think I could ever forgive you!

Bill Compton:
I have no idea what you're talking about.

Eric Northman:
[behind them] I imagine she's referring to the human in my basement... The human who traded sexual services with a vampire in order to sell his blood - which as you know is a grave offense.

Sookie Stackhouse:
[to Eric] His name is Lafayette and you ought to be ashamed of yourself for what you've done to him. [slaps him]

Bill Compton:
Sookie!

Eric Northman:
[unfazed] I'm glad you're feeling better and may I add that color suits you very well. [refering to her red shirt]

Sookie Stackhouse:
Go to hell!

Bill Compton:
[holding her back] Sookie! Enough!

Sookie Stackhouse:
Oh it's not nearly enough. They've tortured him and bitten him and shot him and kept him down there in his own filth for weeks.

Bill Compton:
[to Eric] Is this true?

Eric Northman:
There are others who would have done far worse and you know it.

Sookie Stackhouse:
You're gonna let him go right now or I swear, I'm going to the police.

Eric Northman:
[draws his fangs] I do not respond well to threats!... But perhaps we could come to some sort of arrangement.

Bill Compton:
[flashback] Is there anyone inside? I require help. I'm a soldier of the 28th Louisiana infrantry. I require food and water. Is there anyone who can help me? [cuts the door open and enters]

Lorena:
[holding a gun to his head] Do not move. I will shoot you!

[scene flash forwards to a warm dinning area]

Lorena:
I wasn't even aware we surrendered.

Bill Compton:
Word came two weeks ago. We disbanded immediately. Most of the men marched back to Monroe. But I chose to take a short cut home by-by way of these trails. I over estimated my knowledge of the land.

Lorena:
You're not far off. The lake is 10 miles southwest of here and Bon Temps is 10 miles south of that. My husband was in the 13th infantry, under Colonel Gibbson. He fought at Shiloh. He used to write to me every few weeks. But I haven't heard from him in nearly seven months.

Bill Compton:
Many of the postal routes have been disrupted. I'm sure your letter simply got lost.

Lorena:
That's kind of you. But I've considered myself a widow for sometime now. You still have quite a lot of blood on you. You're a lucky man, Lieutenant. I doubt you would've survived another day without food.

Bill Compton:
I'm in debt to you for taking pity on me.

Lorena:
I think, for your sake, you best spend the night here, with me. [tries to kiss him]

Bill Compton:
[rising suddenly] I'm sorry. I apologize if I misled you. But I have a wife and two small children waitin' for me. And if Bon Temps is as close as you say it is, then I'll see them soon and I do not wish to sully our reunion.

Lorena:
You are an honorable man. The others have not always been so.

Bill Compton:
[surprised] There's been others?

Lorena:
From time to time. Deserters mostly. I offered them a crust of bread and a place to rest, and they would help appease my loneliness. It may not be moral, Lieutenant. But these are times of war.

Bill Compton:
I do not judge you. Your choices are your own, as are mine. I wish to continue on my way home. You have my gratitude for your hospitality. I will not soon forget it.

[he turns to leave as she appears at the door, biting him]

Sorority Girl:
Hi! Ya'll have Tru Blood? For real?

Frat Boy:
You get vamps in here? I didn't even think we had any in Louisana.

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
[Cajun accent] You didn't know that New Orleans is a mecca for the vampire?

Frat Boy:
Seriously? I mean New Orleans? Even after Katrina? Didn't they all drown?

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
Vampires cannot drown. Because we do not breathe.

Frat Boy:
Dude, no harm intended. We're just a little drunk.

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
Nice. I could use a cocktail.

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
[he drops his accent and laughs] Score! I totally had you guys.

Sorority Girl:
That wasn't funny!

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
Yeah it was.

Frat Boy:
Nah, Kelly that *was* pretty funny.

Good Old Boy Vampire:
I didn't think it was funny.

Frat Boy:
[Faces Good Old Boy Vampire] Well, we don't care what you think.

Frat Boy:
[He turns back to the Clerk] Dude, you know where we could score any V-juice?

Sorority Girl:
Gross! Brad no!

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
How much you need?

Sorority Girl:
I knew this girl who knew this girl who did Vamp blood during Greek Week. She like clawed her own face off.

Frat Boy:
Seriously, I can pay good money.

Good Old Boy Vampire:
Okay, you two need to leave.

Frat Boy:
Alright, f*** you Billy Bob!

Good Old Boy Vampire:
F*** me? I'll f*** you boy. I'll f*** ya and then I'll eat ya!

Good Old Boy Vampire:
[He extends his fangs. Frat Boy and Sorority Girl run out. Good Old Boy Vampire walks up to the clerk and places money and a case of Tru Blood on the counter] You ever pretend to be one of us again and I'll kill you. Got it?

Grabbit Quick Clerk:
[nods, terrified] Yeah.

Good Old Boy Vampire:
[Pleasantly smiles] Have a nice day now.
