"He (Keith) can still wink. That annoying stupid, condescending wink!"
- Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)


"A Scoundrel? That was an understatement. Abe Mazur was a moroi whose nickname in Russia - Zmey, the serpent- said it all. Abe had done a number of favors for me, ones I'd had to pay back at considerable risk to myself. Part of that payback had been helping Rose escape. Well, he'd called it payback; I called it blackmail."
- Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Sydney: 'Honestly, I would've been happy if he'd simply wanted a private, fatherly goodbye.'
Jared: "I don't have to tell you how important this is for you, for all of us."
Sydney: 'So much for fatherly affection'
- Sydney Sage and Jared Sage (Bloodlines)

"Don't tell, Sydney. Whatever you do, don't tell what Keith did. Don't tell anyone."
- Carly Sage (Bloodlines)


Sydney: "I feel like a soccer mom. I'm too young for that."
Keith: "Soccer moms drive vans. And there's nothing wrong with soccer."
Sydney: "Does it have to be brown, though?"
- Sydney Sage and Keith Darnell (Bloodlines)


“They’re waiting for you. Go on in. If. You. Dare.” 
'He poked Keith’s shoulder and gave a “Muhahaha” kind of monster laugh.'
- Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)




"She's (Rose) all he (Adrian) sees when he closes his eyes. Flashing dark eyes and a body full of fire and energy. No matter how much he tries to forget her, no matter how much he drinks... she's always there. He can't escape her.
- Jill Mastrano (Bloodlines)



Sydney: "Am I interrupting your social calendar? I don't want to keep you from the mob of fans beating down your door."
Adrian: "Hey, a guy can hope. I mean, it's not impossible that a car full of scantily clad sorority girls might break down outside and need my help."
Sydney: "That's true. Maybe i can put a sign out front that says, 'ATTENTION ALL GIRLS: FREE HELP HERE.'"
Sydney: "Right. That's an important distinction."
- Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

"I decided the Alchemists needed an entire department devoted to handeling Adrian Ivashkov."
- Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)



'Keith was just bringing the glass to his lips when...'
Adrian: "Mmm. O positive, my favorite."
'Keith sprayed out the wine he'd just drunk and promptly started coughing. ... Clarence stared at his glass wonderingly.'
Clarence: "Is it? I thought it was cabernet sauvignon."
Adrian: "So it is. My mistake."
'Adrian flashed me a secret, knowing smile that seemed to say, That's payback for earlier.'
- Adrian Ivashkov and Clarence Donahue (Bloodlines)







Adrian: "That shower thing was hilarious"
Sydney: "It was irresponsible! Why can't anyone see that?"
Adrian: "But that bitch had it comming"
Syndey: "Have you guys forgotten why we're here? You of all people! You saw her die. Don't you get how important it is for her to stay save and keep a low profile?"
- Adrian was quiet for moments, and when I glanced over, his face was uncharacteristically serious. -
Adrian: "I know. But I don't want her to be miserable either. She... she doesn't deserve it. Not like the rest of us."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)










Sydney: "Adrian told me."
Eddie: "Damn him. Why can't he be as oblivious as he pretends?"
- Sydney Sage and Eddison Castile (Bloodlines)

"I want her (Jill) to be happy. It's worth sacrificing myself."
- Eddie Castile (Bloodlines)


Adrian: "Do you smell that?"
Sydney: "I smell the paint, and ... wait ... is that pine?"
Adrian: "Damn straight. Pine-scented cleaner. As in, I cleaned. With these hands, these hands that don't do manual labor."
Sydney: "What did you use it on? The cupboards?"
Adrian: "The cupboards are fine. I cleaned the floor and the counter. I even got down on my knees."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Adrian: "My God, Sage. Your eyes. How have I never noticed them?"
Sydney: "What about them?"
Adrian: "The color. When you stand in the light. They're amazing ... Like molten gold. I could paint those ... They're beautiful. You're beautiful."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

"Dimitri Belikov had arrived."
- Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)


"Being charming is my hobby"
- Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

"You (Sydney) are an exceptional, talented, and brilliant young woman. Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you’re less. Do not ever let anyone make you feel invisible. Do not let anyone—not even a teacher who constantly sends you for coffee—push 
you around."
- Mrs. Terwilliger (Bloodlines)

Micah: "I was starting to wonder if Jill was adopted, but you two kind of look like each other."
Adrian: "So does our mailman back in North Dakota."
Sydney: "South."
Adrian: "Right. There's something familiar about you Have we met?"
Micah: "I've never been to South Dakota."
Adrian: "That makes two of us."
- Micah Vallence, Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Adrian: "You should've just gotten a kids' meal. You could have saved me a lot of money. And gotten a toy."
Sydney: "A lot' is kind of an exaggeration. Besides, now you have leftovers to help get you by."
- He rolled his eyes and stole a fry off my plate -
Adrian: "You're the one who should take the leftovers home. How do you even function on so little food? One of these days, you're just going to blow away."
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Adrian: “I want the color. I want the 'bonus effects.' And I want it to look badass. You probably can't even do the design I want.”
Tattooist: “That's the least of your worries. I've been doing this for years. I can draw anything you want."
Adrian: "Yeah? Can you draw a skeleton riding a motorcycle with flames coming out of it? And I want a pirate hat on the skeleton. And a parrot on his shoulder. A skeleton parrot. Or maybe a ninja skeleton parrot? No, that would be overkill. But it'd be cool if the biker skeleton could be shooting some ninja throwing stars. That are on fire.”
- Adrian Ivashkov and a tattoo artist (Bloodlines)

“Takes a lot of tries before you hit perfection. Well, except for my parents. They got it on the first try."
- Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Adrian: “You look confused."
Sydney: "I think I'm just overthinking things." 
Adrian: "That's why I try to never do it.” 
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

“I just rely on natural talent. When you have such a wealth of it to draw from, the danger comes from having too much.” 
- Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

“So. Are you guys here to convert me or sell me siding?” 
- Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Sydney: “I don't suppose that she just gave you the job based on looks alone?" 
Adrian: "Why, Sage, you sweet talker." 
Sydney: "Thats not what I meant! What happened?" 
Adrian: "I told the truth." 
Sydney: "Adrian!" 
Adrian: "I'm serious. She asked me what my greatest strength was. I said getting along with people." 
Sydney: "Thats not bad."
Adrian: "Then she asked what my greatest weakness was. And I said, 'Where should I start?'" 
Sydney: "Adrian!" 
Adrian: "Stop saying my name like that. I told her the truth. By the time I was on the fourth one, she told me I could go.” 
- Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Sydney: “Can't you . . . I don't know. Find a hobby or something?" 
Adrian: "Being charming is my hobby."
- Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Sydney: “How? How could you have screwed this one up?" 
Adrian: "When I got in, they said the manager was on the phone and would be a few minutes. So, I sat down and ordered a drink." 
Sydney: "What did you order?" 
Adrian: "A martini." 
Sydney: "A martini. You ordered a martini before a job interview." 
Adrian: "It's a bar, Sage. I figured they'd be cool with it.
- Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Sydney: “I have to get back there. Into that door." 
Adrian: "What, like sneaking in? How very black ops of you. And oh, you know— dangerous and foolish." 
Sydney: "I know. But I have to know something, and this may be my only chance." 
Adrian: "Then I'll go with you in case that guy comes back. Never let it be said Adrian Ivashkov doesn't help damsels in distress.” 
- Sydney Sage and Adrian Ivashkov (Bloodlines)

Adrian: “It's like living in a retirement home! Clarence is taking a nap right now, and he eats at five. It's so boring." 
Sydney: "You've only been here for two days." 
Adrian: "And that's been more than enough. The only thing keeping me alive is that he keeps a hefty supply of liquor on hand. But at the rate I'm going, that'll be gone by the weekend. Jesus Christ, I'm climbing the walls. Oh. Sorry. No offense to Jesus.”
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

“I was no better at reading people than I had been ten seconds ago, but in that moment, I suddenly gained a flash of understanding into the mystery that was Adrian Ivashkov. People didn't believe in him very often. They had low expectations of him, so he did as well. Even Eddie had sort of written him off: 'He's Adrian'. As though there was nothing to be done for it. 
I also suddenly realized that, as unlikely as it seemed, Adrian and I had a lot in common. Both of us were constantly boxed in by others' expectations. It didn't matter that people expected everything of me and nothing of him. We were still the same, both of us constantly trying to break out of the lines that others had defined for us and be our own person. Adrian Ivashkov — flippant, vampire party boy — was more like me than anyone else knew.” 
- Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Adrian: “I changed my mind. I'll take you up on helping me get a job." 
- I almost swerved into oncoming traffic. -
- Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage (Bloodlines)

Adrian: “Thanks for looking out for her, Sage. You're okay. For a human." 
Syndey: "Thanks." 
Adrian: "You can say it too, you know." 
Sydney: "Say what?" 
Adrian: "That I'm okay...for a vampire."
Sydney: "You'll have a hard time getting any Alchemist to admit that. But I can say you're okay for an irreverent party boy with occasional moments of brilliance." 
Adrian: "Brilliant? You think I'm brilliant? You hear that, world? Sage says I'm brilliant.”
Sydney: “That’s not what I said!” 
Adrian: “Come on, Sage. You understand how my mind works. You said I was brilliant, remember?” 
Eddie: “You did?” 
Sydney: “No! I never said that. Stop telling people that.
- Adrian Ivashkov, Sydney Sage and Edison Castile (Bloodlines)

“If it makes you feel any better, you’re not as bad as Keith. He was here earlier today and was so nervous, he literally kept looking over his shoulder. I think it might have been because Adrian kept laughing like a mad scientist at those old black-and-white movies he was watching.” 
- Lee Donahue (Bloodlines)

- While Adrian was interviewing in the back, I got a table and some coffee. Trey came to visit me after about fifteen minutes. -
Trey: "Is that really your brother?"
Sydney: "Yes." 
Trey: "When you said he was looking for a job, I pictured a male version of you. I figured he'd want to color code the cups or something." 
Sydney: "Whats your point?"
Trey: "My point is that you'd better keep looking. I was just back there and overheard him talking with my manager. She was explaining the cleanup he would have to do each night. Then he said something about his hands and manual labor.”
