Victor Van Dort

  • I've got a ... dwarf... and I'm not afraid to use him! I want some questions, now!
  • [to the reanimated corpse of his old dog, Scraps] Play dead...oh, sorry.
  • With this hand, I will cup your...oh, goodness, no!

Emily

  • [Angry] Hopscotch.
  • He's not my boyfriend, he's my husband!
  • You may kiss the bride!
  • I've spent so long in the darkness, I'd almost forgotten how...beautiful the moonlight is.
  • You kept your promise. You set me free. Now I can do the same for you.
  • I was a bride. My dreams were taken from me. But now - now I've stolen them from someone else. I love you, Victor, but you're not mine.

Finis Everglot

  • There's an eye in me soup.
  • Fetch me musket!

Maudeline Everglot

  • Will the mortification never cease? It will be YEARS before we can show ourselves in public again!
  • What impropriety is this?!

Pastor Galswells

  • Three steps, THREE! Can you not COUNT?!
  • Let's try it AGAIN, shall we, Master Van Dort?
  • ENOUGH! This wedding cannot take place until he is properly prepared! [to Victor] Young man. Learn. Your. Vows.

Elder Gutknecht

  • Why go up there when people are dying to get down here?
  • I have it. A Ukranian Haunting Spell! Just the thing for these quick trips.
  • Dearly beloved, and departed...
  • Victor would have to give up the life he had forever. He would have to repeat his vows in the Land of the Living, and drink from the Wine of Ages. This would stop his heart forever. Only then would he be free to give it to you.

Maggot

  • If I hadn't just been sitting in it, I would see that you've lost your mind!

Elder Gutknecht: Yup, you're right. He's all yours.

Victoria: Oh, Hildegarde... what if Victor and I don't... like each other?
Maudeline: Humph! As if that has anything to do with marrige. Do you suppose your father and I like each other?
Victoria: Surely you must, a little?
Maudeline and Finis: Of course not!

Town Crier: VICTOR VAN DORT ELOPES WITH CORPSE! HEARTBROKEN BRIDE TO WED WEALTHY NEWCOMER!
