Damon: I was wrong.
Elena: Are you drunk?

Elena: It's an old family recipe, okay?
Damon: I knew your old family. They made sucky chili.

Elena: Stefan could have lived anywhere in Chicago and he chose this?
Damon: There used to be an all-girls high school around the corner but it shut down for attendance issues. Weird.

Damon: It's very Katherine of you.
Elena: Not the way to make me feel better about myself.
Damon: It was a compliment. Sort of.

Elena: How does he look?
Damon: Pasty and pouty.
Elena: He'll have to get over it.

Elena: Jeremy can't live with me, Stefan wants to fix me, and Caroline flat out admitted that she doesn't like me this way. Think it's safe to say that I'm not so great at this vampire thing.
Damon: You want to know what I think? I don't think I've ever seen you more alive.

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.

Elena: My brother wants to kill me.
Damon: Welcome to the club.

Elena: You're the one who told me I can handle things on my own now.
Alaric: I meant like frozen dinners and SATs.

Alaric: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?
Elena: What? Damon. He thinks he's hilarious.

When he looks at me, all he see is a broken toy.

Elena: What happened?
Damon: Katherine happened.

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.
