Donovan, that badge does not take away the fact that you are human. Please don't commit suicide by Heretic tonight.

Bonnie, you are officially the most terrifying person I know.

Stefan: Three. That's the number of people Caroline and I have saved. Barely.
Damon: So, did you call just to brag, or...?

Nora: You reek of blood.
Damon: Well...I've been binging.
Stefan: And I've been judging.

Lily: Damon, if you have harmed Oscar in any way--
Damon: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's not my first hostage swap.

Lily: I was supposed to be dead.
Damon: And I was supposed to be your son.

Aw, my besties are buds again. Let's go make a deal.

Damon: So, who's up for a little old fashioned hostage swap?
Alaric: Does agreeing to go mean you putting on pants?

[to Bonnie] So, about how long do we have before this evil engulfs the world? I'm just trying to plan my week.

Stefan: You killed him, didn't you?
Damon: Tyler? No. Jeremy once, but are we really bringing that up right now?

Bonnie: Do you have any idea how long three seconds are in a life or death situation?
Damon: In the first second, I thought how amazing it would feel to have Elena in my arms again. By second number two, I had kissed her. And by the third, I remembered you're my best friend and that if anything ever happened to you, I would lose my mind. So yes, Bonnie, I do know how long three seconds are.
Bonnie: Just checking...
Damon: I will wait for her. And you're going to help me. You're stuck with me too.

Stefan hangs up his hero hair for the girl. And here I thought my future was bleak.

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.
