What are your favorite bit(e)s of True Blood dialogue? My fave so far:

Lafayette: "I know that all men, whether they are straight, gay or George W. Motherfuckin' Bush, are terrified of the pussy." A-freakin'-men!

Anyway, post your picks for the best True Blood dialogue here.

You know Lafayette is going to own this thread: "I got a little cocoa, a little cocoa!"

I don't know the exact quote, so someone who has DVR should get on this, but that bit when Lafayette was saying he would call that man Santa Clause was awesome.

The lady Rattray, after Sookie takes their orders: "I think she's retarded."

I loved that. I'm curious to know whether or not this was a quote from the book because it seems very Alan Ball.

Not necessarily a quote form the book, but it is the general consensus around town that Sookie must be slow. I think Ball did a good job of portraying that, I mean who wouldn't appear a little slow with everyone's thoughts being broadcast in her head, right?

And indeed, Jason is "sex on a stick." Hubba hubba.

heh. I was just comeing to mention this because there were a few bar patrons who called Sookie a retard. Also, am I going to hell for laughing every time some one called he that? ;)

I don't know why, but this made me laugh:

Sookie: Guess what happened today?!

Grandma: You got a date!

Sookie: [pause combined with 'oh lord, not again' expression] ........ Nnnooo.

Needssleep05 reminded me of this one:

"There's a very juicy artery in the groin that's a particular favorite of mine."

Bill's delivery of that line is perfect. And hot.

I liked Sam's argument to the synthetic blood and vampires : "Are you willing to pass up all your favorite foods and spend the rest of life drinking Slim Fast?"

"He ain't scared. He's too big to be scared. I like a big man. Look at that belly. You can be my Santa Claus."

I also liked when he told Tara that she should not be allowed anywhere near any job "that calls for actual interaction with people."

My favorite quote was Sookie's description of her brother.

"No he aint. He's a selfish, egotistical horndog but he aint no killer."

I'm glad you posted that, because I was just coming here to comment on it but couldn't remember exactly what he said. It's a really good illustration of the situation the vampires are in. I do think it's interesting that the synthetic blood comes in different blood types, but even then it must be like the difference between chocolate Slim Fast and vanilla. ;-)

God I loved that line. It's just so white trash and also kind of awesome how she isn't lying to her kids.

I think the line that sold me on this whole show was: "Stop that nasty talk! Vampire or not you will speak to me like the lady I am!" The tone, the body language, Anna Paquin just nailed that bit.

"Angelina Jolie adopts vampire baby". That was the headline in the tabloid magazine on Tara's coffee table.

Another favorite of mine, maybe not the exact quote. Sookie's second date: " She's the kind of girl to marry. Then I won't think about Matt Damon or Jake Gyllenhaal in Jarhead."

After Sookie notices Sam's lights are on, she turns around and Bill is nowhere to be found:

Sookie: Well, that's creepy.

Ok, I'm not sure that's the exact quote and the line itself isn't very funny, but AP's off-hand delivery was fucking awesome.

Did anyone catch Lafayette's ringtone? I know it was his voice, but I couldn't make out what he was saying.

needsleep05: when I heard LaFayette's ringtone it sounded like, "Pick up the phone! Ya sexy bitch" but I'm not 100% positive on that.

My favorite line from Jason, after the sheriff puts forward the theory that Jason came back and left the tape that made him appear guilty but cleared him.

"Oh, come on. I'm not that smart."

From episode 1:

I feel like I'm trapped in some hillbilly's OxyContin nightmare.

How brilliant is that?

I tried to freeze frame it and read the second tabloid's cover - the one next to the "Angelina" cover. By the way, anyone notice the photo of Pax had an Eddie Munster hairline photoshopped in? Hee.

Anyway, anyone catch exactly what the second tabloid cover said? The most I could glean was "Can True Love Survive..." and there was one more line of words beneath. Anyone fill in the blank?

Not exactly a clever quote or anything, but I really liked when Rene told annoying guy in the bar "Don't look at me you." Maybe it's just that I like to hear Rene talk.

The way he says "you" at the end of some of his sentences is often funny, cute, and more than a little hot. The character as a whole is probably the most awesome non-main-character so far, for me (better than Maudette, the cops, Dawn, and that other barmaid who's name I forget that Rene is apparently seeing).

I can't remember hearing a Cajun accent (or attempted Cajun) on TV for a long time (in movies once in a while, sure)...the last one was, maybe, Gambit/Remy from the `90s X-Men cartoon ? And that sure brought some recall when Sam called Sookie "cher" (Anna Paquin having played Rogue in the live-action X-Men films, a character that Gambit often called cher in the cartoon and comics).

Jason: I'm just saying there's a reason why things are the way they are.

Bill: Yeah...It's called injustice.

I love how Jason totally has a sandwich sitting on his belly during that convo.

OT: I totally think of Gambit from the X-Men cartoon whenever I hear Rene speak, Kris_AB! The difference for me is that I really liked Gambit from the X-Men series/comics, and Rene gives me an ooky vibe. I so don't get the Rene love.

I know right! He grabs two sandwiches, and puts them on his shirt in lieu of a plate. Such a grub. I love watching everything Jason does.

I don't have the episode with me, but the clip on the news of Newlin and Nan Flanagan:

NEWLIN: "I will not speak to her directly."
NEWS ANCHOR: "Well that will make it difficult to have a dialogue."

...or something like that.
