Elena: I know it doesn't make sense. But in the beginning, after my parents died, there was something about being with Stefan. I felt safe.
Matt: Safe? Elena he's a vampire.

Elena: Are you insane?
Rebekah: I prefer spontaneous.

Elena: If you're mad at me, Damon, you need to get over it.
Damon: Oh, I'm over it.

Damon: There's something you should know. Stefan didn't screw us over, well he screwed us over but he had a good reason. He saved Klaus to save me.
Elena: What? Why would he even do that?
Damon I don't know... I feel like such an idiot.
Elena: Why?
Damon: For thinking that for one second I wouldn't have to feel guilty anymore.
Elena: What are you talking about? Guilty for what?
Damon: For wanting what I want.

Damon: I'm mad at you because I love you.
Elena: Well maybe that's the problem.

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

Elena: You can't kiss me again... it's not right.
Damon: It's right. It's just not right now.

Stefan: Destroying Klaus is all I have left.
Elena: You had me!

Vampires, hybrids and originals? No problem. My rebellious brother? I'm worried.

Elena: He's gonna kill Jeremy.
Stefan: Not really my problem.

Rick, hey. When did you return to the living?

Damon: My brother is sort of running his own show right now.
Elena: My brother just chopped of someone's head.

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: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
