We met and we talked and it was epic. But the sun came up and reality set in.

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Damon: Somewhere along the way, you decided I was worth saving. I wanted to thank you for that.
Elena: You're welcome.

Elena: What happened?
Damon: Katherine happened.

You're not a lost cause, Ric. You're just... Ric.

Caroline: Feeding on the competition, hello did you not hear what Damon told you?
Elena: I did but who cares? I'll do whatever I want.

Elena: So what do you want to do?
Damon: I want to throw you back in my bed and never let you leave.
Elena: So do it.

Elena: Is it weird that Bonnie isn't returning my calls?
Matt: Is it weird Klaus' bother is in the middle of the town square?

Elena: You scared me.
Damon: Just doing my part in the neighborhood watch.

He's my family. I have to look out for him.

Elena [to Damon]: Let's get one thing straight: I am not Katherine.

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.

Damon

Damon [to Elena]
