Movie Quote Quiz

Blade: You better wake up. The world you live in is just a sugar coated topping. There is another world beneath it. The real world. And if you want to survive it, you better learn to pull the trigger.

Security Guard in Hospital: Freeze!
[Shoots at Wesley Snipes.]
Blade: Motherfucker, are you out of your damn mind?

Karen: Wait a minute. You used me as bait?
Blade: Get use to it.
[Blade takes Officer Kriegers' wallet and watch.]
Karen: Oh, great. Now you're robbing him. You gonna rob me too?
Blade: How do you think we fund this little organization? We're not exactly the March of Dimes.

Karen: Why do you hunt them?
Whistler: I had a family once. A wife and two daughters. Then a drifter came calling one evening. A vampire. He toyed with them at first. Tried to make me decide which order they'd die in.

Blade: There are worse things out there than vampires.
Dr. Karen Jenson: Like what?
Blade: Like me.

Dr. Karen Jenson: You have a lot of love for him, don't you?
Blade: We have a good arrangement. He makes the weapons. I use them.

Whistler: Catch you fuckers at a bad time?

Karen: You're one of them, aren't you?
Blade: No. I'm something else.

Frost: Easy! Wouldn't want our little friend here to wind up on the back of a milk carton now, would we?

Whistler: Some of the legends are true though. Vampires are severely allergic to silver. Feed them garlic, and they go into anaphylactic shock. Then, of course, there's always sunlight, ultraviolet rays.
[Whistler turns on a weapon that produces ultraviolet light and points it at Blade's face.]
Whistler: I got this sucker running. You want to give it a try tonight?
[Blade takes the weapon from Whistler.]
Blade: It's still heavy.
Whistler: Well, you're so big.

Continuity mistake: When Blade gets his serum, Whistler holds his hand, then they see the girl run. In one shot, Whistler goes right, leaving the suffering Blade. In the next shot (close up on Blade), you can see that Whistler is still holding Blade's hand. (00:26:57)

Question: At the end when the Russian vampire has his would-be victim in a choke-hold, she says something to him, and he says something in return, but neither lines are subtitled. What are they saying?

Phaneron

Chosen answer: I have taken the Russian subtitles and machine translated them, then edited for clarity. Here they are with and compared to the hard subs from the theatrical release of the movie. Russian version is in brackets. Here is the full conversation... MOSCOW Woman: (A good show. I'm glad we went.) Vampire: (It went well, I thought?) Woman: (Yes, keep up the good work.) Vampire: (I will try.) Woman: It's cold. Where are we going? (I'm so cold. Where are we going?) Vampire: It's a surprise. Woman: Surprise? (Surprise? Really?) Man: (Yes.) Woman: I like surprises. (You know, I like surprises.) Vampire: Then you'll like this - (Then you'll like it very much.) Vampire: (You have such sweet skin!) Woman: (Peter, what are you doing? You're hurting me!) Vampire: (You will live forever.) Woman: (Don't touch me!) Blade: (Hey, good evening.) Blade: Catch you at a bad time - Blade: - Comrade? Vampire then growls until blade draws his sword and it cuts to credits.
