Blade (1998) Poster


Kris Kristofferson: Whistler



  • [Whistler hands Blade a UV flashlight] 

    Blade : Still heavy.

    Whistler : But, you're so big.

  • Whistler : Frost is trying to trigger a fuckin' vampire apocalypse. There's some kind of vampire God he's trying to resurrect.

    Blade : La Magra.

    Whistler : You're the key. He needs your blood. The blood of the day walker. You're the chosen one.

  • Quinn : Oh, lookie here.

    [he removes a silver stake from Blade's holster] 

    Quinn : Silver. Nice craftsman ship, huh? Probably cost you a pretty penny. Now this here is a man who takes his job just a little too seriously, don't you think? Come to think of it, Blade, I owe you one.

    [he stabs the stake into Blade's shoulder] 

    Quinn : Actually, if you want to get technical, Blade...

    [lifts another stake] 

    Quinn : I owe you two.

    [Blade starts laughing] 

    Quinn : Oh, what's so funny, bright eyes?

    Blade : I'm expecting company.

    [Quinn looks closer, and sees the radio piece in Blade's ear, which is chattering. The wall explodes behind them] 

    Whistler : Catch you fuckers at a bad time?

  • Whistler : Blade's mother was attacked by a vampire while she was pregnant. She died, but he lived. Unfortunately, he'd undergone certain genetic changes. He can withstand garlic, silver, even sunlight. And he's got their strength. This time tomorrow, all those wounds of his will be healed. He still ages like a human, though. You see, vampires age slower than us. Unfortunately, he also inherited their thirst.

  • Whistler : Christ! I'm too old for this! Somebody get me a goddamn wheelchair!

  • Whistler : There's a war going on out there. Blade, myself, a few others, we've tried to keep it from spilling over onto the streets. Sometimes people like yourself get caught in the cross fire.

  • Dr. Karen Jenson : Who are you people?

    Whistler : My name's Abraham Whistler. You've met Blade.

  • Dr. Karen Jenson : So what do you use then? Stakes? Crosses?

    Whistler : Crosses don't do squat.

  • Whistler : [after Dr Karen Jenson sees him inject Blade with the serum and runs away]  Wander off the beaten path, Doctor.

  • Dr. Karen Jenson : You been listening in the whole time?

    Blade : Keeping radio contact.

    Whistler : Think I'd let him run loose without a chaperon?

  • Dr. Karen Jenson : Why do you hunt them?

    Whistler : I had a family once - wife, two daughters. Then a drifter came calling one evening, a vampire. He toyed with them first. Tried to make me decide which order they'd die in.

  • Dr. Karen Jenson : So, am I a prisoner here?

    Whistler : Not at all. We just had to take certain precautions before we let you go. You got to understand, they're everwhere. Vampires. A Hominus Nocturna. We hunt them you see, moving from one city to the next, tracking their migrations. They're hard to kill. They tend to regenerate.

    Dr. Karen Jenson : And I'm supposed to believe all this?

    Blade : Well, you already met Mr. Crispy at the hospital. What do you think?

  • Whistler : We kill as many of 'em as we can find. But it's getting worse.

  • Whistler : You have to understand, they're everywhere. Chances are you seen 'em yourself, and didn't know it. On the subway or in a bar.
