Carola: You promised you'd never tell.

Betty: I never could do long division. Let's see, how many times does twelve go into seventy-five.
Timmy: Oh, six times, three left over. Why?
Betty: Well, at twelve minutes a pound, that means you have to be in the oven by no later than 1:30. Oh, but evisceration takes at least an hour.

Drogan: We were a dull collection of rich, old, unhappy people.

Cabbie: Hey, man, what's so fuckin' funny?

Trivia: George A. Romero wrote the screenplay for the segment "Cat From Hell," so director John Harrison put two references to Romero's work into this film as a kind of payment. In "Lot 249" when Lee is lying on the couch and the TV is on, it is playing Dawn of the Dead. Later on in the film, in "Cat from Hell," Halston is shown watching the Vampire classic, Martin, directed by Romero. (00:18:30 - 00:52:30)

Question: Why does the gargoyle in A Lover's Vow stick around Preston disguised as the lovely Rae Dawn Chong?

Rob245

Answer: The gargoyle had been watching Preston through his window for a long while and, falling in love with him, assumed a human form so she could be with him.

Awkward. I mean eww, should've just left him alone as it was a murderous creature who killed for no reason. She could've done the human form without killing anyone you know.

Well, love makes people (and gargoyles) do weird and stupid things.
