Alaric: I loved you when you weren't a witch, and I'm pretty sure I will still love you regardless.
Jo: Pretty sure?
Alaric: Yeah, at least 92%.

Look, my life is full of the martyrs who cave to the bad guy, trying to be heroes, and it never ends well. Somebody inevitably gets hurt--or dead--and that somebody could just as easily be you, or Bonnie, regardless of what you do.

Alaric: Granted, being a vampire hunter doesn't lend itself to a healthy social life.
Jeremy: Yeah, turns out a social life isn't as much fun as kicking vampire ass.

Jeremy: I can't leave now, no way. Not with the sheriff sick and Enzo on a rampage. It's not the right time.
Elena: No kidding because the right time was a couple of eyars ago. Enzo could have killed you today and the other day Liv threw you across a room. And let's not forget the time that you actually died.
Alaric: She's right. Time to get the hell out of here.
Elena: You deserve a normal life, Jer. You deserve the life of a kid whose only baggage is that he lost his parents.

You actually think I'd watch this sober?

[to Damon] You know, I don't know how I went so long without saying this, but you're a real dick!

Cryptic question, accusatory tone, this doesn't bode well for me.

Damon: There are no drawbacks to this woman Stefan!
Alaric: Ehh, she did sleep with you.
Damon: See? Another plus.

I am not on painkillers. In fact I feel awful. But I'm enjoying every miserable human moment of the pain.

Jo: Why don't you just compel me out of the way? Look don't you think it's about time we level with each other?
Alaric: Okay, how's this: my best friend, he just came from the dead but now i have to save him from a vampire hunter before he's driven across an anti-magic border and killed...again. So here's some friendly advice: it's probably a good idea to stay as far away from me as possible.

She loved you too much and it was killing her.

Alaric: Damon is going to kill me.
Elena: You're un-killable.
Alaric: Doesn't mean he won't try!

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
