Contenders for this category included Ruby (“I’m the girl who just saved your ass.” “Does anyone have a breath mint? Some guts splattered into my mouth whilst I was killing my way in here.” “Even you have to admit I’m-I’m awesome!”) and Abaddon (“But the King is dead. Long live the Queen.” ”You give a girl all sorts of nasty ideas” “You and me, lover. We’ll have a grand old time.”)
Going along with the theme of villains and antagonists, my favourite character with the best dialogue lines would be Eve. I have always loved her quotes and statements as they just perfectly encapture her attitude towards her children and, after 5 seasons of male big bads and referring to God as “Father”, Eve crashes the party and makes the female species and the role of the mother important again.
My all time favourite quote from Eve is “After all, a mother defends her children,” but I found that every time she talked I was instantly hooked…
“We have so much to do. Let’s get started.” “You do know that Jesus was just a man.”
“God doesn’t care about you. Your father made you and then abandoned you, so you pray. You see signs where there’s nothing. But truth is, your apocalypse came and went, and you didn’t even notice. A mother would never abandon her children like he did. You’ll see.
“Now that would be rude, Sam” “You misunderstand me”
“I liked our arrangement…The natural order. My children turned a few of you, you hunted a few of them. I was happy.”
“You understand a mother’s love. I’m no different.” “You simple, little monkey.”
“Okay fine. I’ll quit playing nice. I’ll turn you all. Every soul, mine. Let’s see how hot his Hell burns when everyone comes to me. He asked for it.”
“Bonus, I won’t kill your friends.” “Don’t test me.”
