"The blood is the life."
― Count Dracula misquoting and missing the point of Genesis 9:4 in Dracula (1931)
"Xander: Why blood? Why Dawn's blood? I mean, why couldn't it be, like, a lymph ritual?
Spike: 'Cause it's always gotta be blood.
Xander: We're not actually discussing dinner right now -
Spike: Blood is life, lackbrain. Why do you think we eat it? It's what keeps you going, makes you warm, makes you hard, makes you other than dead. 'Course it's her blood."
― Buffy the Vampire Slayer
