Marcus: I can't follow in your footsteps.
Matthew: My son, you are the only one that I trust to do the job.

Gerbert: Baldwin de Clermont, you have committed treason against the Congregation. Your punishment is death by beheading and fire.
Baldwin: That is a punishment suited for the 14th century, not the 21st!!
Gerbert: It comes from ancient testimony. There is no newer one to replace it.
Agatha: There is one Congregation rule we mustn't overlook. Each of us has one vote on every decision in this chamber.

Good, now I have items arriving from my past lives, but once we arrive there, how to do we return from the past?


What is this house trying to tell us?


You craved me ... all this time. And you resisted.


Miriam: What she did was unspeakably courageous. You might not have been able to stop drinking.
Matthew: I know.
Miriam: She certainly is full of surprises. Witch fire? It wasn't in her DNA markers.

Diana: Maiden, mother, crone, I call you. Goddess, help me! I will do anything to save him.
Goddess: If I help him, there will be a price.
Diana: I will give anything, anything that you want. Anything, just save him!
Goddess: Give him life.

Satu trespassed on my land, on my ancestral home. I want to see her suffer before the Congregation decides her fate.


Diana: My God. I know this writing. He wrote in the manuscript.
Matthew: What? Your father? In the Book of Life?

Sarah: Em, enough already. Can we please not pretend this is a social call? Vampires protecting Bishop land? It's isn't gonna work! [the house begins to shake]
Miriam: [looking around] What the hell?
Sarah: Look at you! People will talk. We might as well send a FLARE up for the Congregation!
Matthew: With respect, Sarah...
Sarah: With respect, Matthew, I've had about enough of you saying "with respect" and then doing or saying whatever you damn please.
Miriam: What is going on?
Matthew: Magic house.
Diana: The house doesn't like it when we argue.

Sarah: How on earth could anyone think that you're, that you're human?!
Miriam: Sarah, you're hardly inconspicuous yourself. The smell of henbane is coming off you in waves.
Sarah: You got a problem, Junior?!
Marcus: Oh, uh, no. It's just, you look so much like your namesake. Sarah Bishop, your ancestor. She taught me how to set a broken leg at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
Emily: That is so fascinating, Marcus. I mean, did you know her well?

Gerbert: I know that; I know. Speak to me or you will get no more of this.
Luisa: Two. Light. Dark.
