A few of the most memorable The Vampire Diaries quotes from the episode:

Elena: Dear Diary: Today will be different. It has to be. I will smile and it will be believable. My smile will say, 'I'm fine. Thank you. Yes. Much better.' I will no longer be the girl who lost her parents. I will start fresh. Be someone new. It's the only way I'll make it through. | permalink
Elena: I made it through the day. I must have said "I'm fine" 37 times. | permalink
Damon: Is it working? Being in her world? Does it make you feel alive? | permalink
Elena: You keep a journal?
Stefan: Memories are too important. | permalink
