Elijah: So this is your solution? Mend the home, mend the man?
Cami: Or we could go fishing and I could tell you about the summer I lost my virginity.
Elijah: I'll mend the home.

[to Elijah] Your mother really did a number on you boys, didn't she? Did it ever occur to you that I am less interested in fixing your problems and more interested in forgetting my own? I mean I'm basically in a supernatural witness protection program because your psychotic brother, who I might add I practically had to seduce, wants me dead. So, yeah. Booze and board games is pretty much where I am right now.
Cami: I would appeal to your morals but those seem to be all over the map.
Finn: I'm not the one who was sleeping with one vampire while half in love with another. Your morality is a moving target. Mine is not.
Finn: You are a compassionate woman, Camille. It's your fatal flaw and it will be your downfall.
Cami: Well, that got dark fast.

Kaleb: I think I'd be a bit testy too if my old ex was about to jump into my new ex. I think that'd be a bit eh...
Kaleb: I was going to say kinky, but that'll work.

You know, sometimes I ask myself why I let people like Klaus into my life. I have this destructive pattern. I'm always drawn to the bad boys. Maybe deep down, I feel like that's what I deserve.
Cami: So, how would you diagnose my friend Klaus, if I may ask?
Vincent: Well, he's clearly depressive, low self-esteem, paranoia, impulse control. Wouldn't you agree?
Mikael: Let me hazard a guess. You are one of these alienists, right?
Cami: Actually, we're called therapists, and you could do with some couch time.
Mikael: He betrayed me! He turned my entire family against me! And yet you defend him!
Cami: I have desperately tried to convince him not to kill you, that the bloodshed in your family does not have to be an endless cycle, and after centuries on this earth do you really not see that all of your fighting is pointless?
Cami: I used to try to convince Klaus that there was good in everyone, that you really did care about him. He told me I was naive, that I could never fathom how deep your hatred ran.
Mikael: I didn't always hate him.
- Permalink: I didn't always hate him.
Cami: This is crazy. The two of you going round and round trying to kill each other. You're obsessing over the death of someone who's fatal flaw is that he was fathered by another guy.
Mikael: Hush! You are an enabler of the weak. No wonder he seeks your company.

There's more to life than the pain they made you feel. A cold beer, a slow song, a good friend. There are good things, Klaus, and you need to see that, too. There's no real peace in revenge.
They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.Klaus
We were innocent once, Elijah. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in shadow. We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armor. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family.Klaus
