True Blood Quotes

Bill: Sookie... I cannot...and I will not lose you. For all the ways I have...dismayed, agrieved, 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 140 years, I felt something I thought had been lost in me forever... I love you. And for that, I shall never feel sorry!
Sookie: God damn you, Bill Compton... I love you!

Be brave. We'll die together.

Eric [to Russell]
