Stefan: All these words. Forgot how much I used to care.
Elena: I didn't.

Uh-oh! It’s the fun police. I thought that Ripper Stefan was supposed to be the life of the party.

Elena: I know who you really are, better than anyone, Stefan. I am not giving up.
Stefan: Elena, do you have any idea how pathetic that makes you?
Elena : No, Stefan. It makes me strong.

I don't know what he is, but he's definitely not Stefan.

New year. New life.

Bonnie: Where are you going?
Elena: To super glue Alaric's desk shut. I'm making memories.

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.

It's an antique, Damon. Like you.

You're not a lost cause, Ric. You're just...lost. But so is Jeremy. And so am I. Our family is gone. We don't have anybody. I'm sorry, but you don't have anybody either, so...we're kind of it for each other.

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

Elena: Can you just appreciate the fact that you're not dead?
Damon: I'll give you 10 seconds. 9... 8...

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: 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.
