Damon: No, I'm not done. And I will never be done. I am not a nice person. I should not have to stand in front of the entire town and pretend to be a nice person. This is Liz having a last laugh from the great beyond.
Elena: Hey, you are nice...

Jeremy: I can't leave now, no way. Not with the sheriff sick and Enzo on a rampage. It's not the right time.
Elena: No kidding because the right time was a couple of eyars ago. Enzo could have killed you today and the other day Liv threw you across a room. And let's not forget the time that you actually died.
Alaric: She's right. Time to get the hell out of here.
Elena: You deserve a normal life, Jer. You deserve the life of a kid whose only baggage is that he lost his parents.

Elena: Our lives are so weird.
Jeremy: That's the understatement of the century.

Just get out of here, don't look back.

So was Kai right about me? By turning into a vampire, I completely changed?

I don't care. Life's too short. Immortal or not, I don't wanna waste another minute.

I've never felt more alive.

[to Damon] So look, I don't know what we were, or are, or are supposed to be. All I know is I want to see you.

Elena: Everything you've been doing for Bonnie...thank you.
Damon: She'd do it for us.

Elena: I'm sorry I compelled away the memories. They were only half mine.
Damon: We'll make new ones.

Elena: What was that?
Damon: Uh it's my audition tape for Real World London. Fingers crossed, I think I'm gonna make it!

Elena: You should've brought me with you. Well first you should've told me Bonnie was alive and then you should've brought me with you.
Damon: Well Ric had more frequent flyer miles...and Ric didn't deliberately forget our entire relationship.

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.
