I mean, what's it doing? -The pulsing light is a signal calling out to someone. The question is who and why? -The clan leaders. -The book will lead them right to us! -Visitors, I better get this place looking good. We need more cobwebs! Come on. Get spinning. -Put away the welcome web. This is not good news! -Unless they think the signal means I've opened the book. -Except you haven't. You've got every vampire in the world waiting to hear what's inside. And you have not delivered! -I'm close. I just need more time. -There is no more time! They will want answers, not excuses! No answers, and their strongest will punish us. -Looks like someone's going to get it in the neck? -You think this is funny? If Vlad doesn't open the book, we will all be ash. Now do your job. Teach him how to open the book. Clock's ticking. Tick, tock. Tick, tock. -I'm ready. Open and reveal my destiny. I command you to open! Reveal my destiny! -Reveal my destiny! Very powerful, very compelling, and totally ineffective. -Ignore her. -You've got to dig deep into the blackest part of your soul. -What's the point? All right, I can't open it. -Yes, you can. Do you want to see your family turn to ash? You want to hear their screams as they pay for your failure! The book won't open because it sees the coward inside! -I am not a coward! -It can smell the fear on you. The boy frightened of the monster in the cupboard, too scared to look! -I'll show you who's frightened. -Let the monster out! [grunting] -Do it! [screaming] -No! -I can't! I won't let go! -Then we'll all die. I head you and Erin talking. I know the truth. I know your secret. -You're a breather. WHISPERING VOICE: I will help you. Come to me. -Did you hear that? WHISPERING VOICE: I will help you. The answer lies within. -You must have heard it that time. -What do you mean he knows our secret? What exactly did he say? -He said, I heard you and Erin talking. I know your secret. I know the truth. -He knows I'm a human. I'm out of here. -It's dangerous out there. -I'll take my chances. -I don't want you to become one of us! Sometimes it's better to hide and fight another day. [knocking] -Mr. Count? Oh, he's only had them for three weeks. The man's impossible! -Master, Miss [inaudible] would like a word. -How about massacre, or annihilation, or slaughter, or blood bath? -Ain't blood bath two words. She says it's urgent. -Urgent! Some people just don't know the meaning of the word. -All this came in the post for you. -You deal with it! -Since when did Dad become a bat collector? -Let me see that. This is a rare specimen. -Oh! Smash glass! -Wait! [gasping] -I am Ramanga! -Welcome, we are honored with your presence. [speaking foreign language] -What is it? -I found these in your office. I take it you've not read them yet? -Oh. -I really need your input on the staffing levels. -Look, I have no idea what a staffing level is-- -Staffing levels refer to the number of teachers we employ. -Very good, carry on without me. -It can't wait! Time is now critical. I have to hire new permanent staff. And I Need you to approve the candidates. -All right, all right. -I am not staying down here in the cellar! -It's only until I can work out a plan to get you safely away. -It's creepy. -And living with us isn't? I'll be back soon. I promise. -You better be. I'll be wrapped up with the rest of the spider food. WHISPERING VOICE: They have what you need. -Did you hear that? -Is someone coming? WHISPERING VOICE: Come to me. -No, it's like a whispering voice. WHISPERING VOICE: Come to me. -Are you feeling all right? -Stay put. -You're hiding in a school for breathers? -We're being cautious. -The only thing breathers need to learn is how to feed us. -We like to play with our food before we eat it. -Where's the chosen one? -I'll bring him before you. -This turned out nice again. Can I take your-- -Don't touch! -Go and tell the Count that our honored guest has arrived. -Look, I really don't have time for this minutia. -The devil's in the details, Mr. Count. -He's in a lot more than that. -We've had a delivery, a special delivery! You have to sign for it! -Can nobody do anything in this place without me? If it needs a signature, I'm sure your scrawl will suffice! -Someone's here! You know, the ah! Thing. -Hm? Right, we've got to go. Urgent business to attend. -But I really need your approval on these candidates. -We'll do this later. -Vlad, the clan leader's here. Don't tell him you can't open the book. Play for time. -What's the point? I'm never going to get it open. -You can if you can get those stupid ideas out your head. -What ideas? -You want vampires and breathers to live together in peace. You want the bloodshed to end forever. -You're spying on us. -You and Erin are vampires. You can't change that. -Yeah, we are vampires, vampires who want humans to be our friends, not food. -You want to stake your life on -If that's what it takes. -You tell that to Ramanga and it will be the last thing you do. -Be with you in a minute. Got something I need to do. -Don't keep him waiting! WHISPERING VOICE: I'm in the mirror room. -Vlad? WHISPERING VOICE: Look for the mirror. That's right. I'm over here. -Oh! WHISPERING VOICE: Down here in the dark. That's right. Turn right. I'm in here! In here! Look for the mirror. That's right. -Vlad! WHISPERING VOICE: Over here. -Stay there. -No! -Has the Praedictum Impaver been opened? -I'm really not at liberty-- -Has he opened the book? -Well, some of the bones have opened. -Yes, or no? -It's a work in progress. -No! He can't open the book. -Is this true? -Well, he's been working very hard. -You were supposed to be training him. -But we have Bertrand as an expert! -You failed! We demand to know why. -Well, I wouldn't say failed-- -Where is the chosen one? Still he keeps me waiting. -He said he'd just be a moment. -Miss McCauley's here to see you. -Not now Renfield! Get rid of her! I'm sure he'll be here soon. -This is in most disrespectful. -She's at the door! She says it's very urgent! -Tell her I'm-- tell her I'm indisposed! -You're not allowed in here! These are Mr. Count's private quarters! -Mr. Count, a word. -Ah! A breather. Good, I am thirsty after my long journey. -You can't have this one. She's mine. Look, I'll be one moment! Renfield, a drink for our guest. -I urgently need your approval for the candidates so I can start hiring. -And as you can see, I have a visitor. So I must insist we do this later.

It has to be done today. -Give me two minutes. I'll be right there! Go! Where's Vlad? -He's been chucked into the mirror. -What? Vlad got chucked into the mirror. -What! -Just go with Erin and find Vlad. -The [inaudible]. -This is not time to get snobbish! Go! I've got to deal with Miss McCauley. I need you to look after our guest while I'm gone. -This is your mess. I'm not helping you clean it up. I'd be only too glad to be [inaudible]. -For once in your pathetic little life will you toe party line and play ball!
