Elena, I shut off my humanity. I didn't turn into an idiot. The last thing I want to do is give you a reason to ruin my life.

Liam: Caroline Forbes, the girl from the swimming hole.
Caroline: Liam! The boy I forgot existed!

My mom is dead, Elena. It hurts so bad I can't breathe. I can't...I can't do worse, okay? I shouldn't have to.

You couldn't handle the pain when your brother died so you turned it off. Damon died and you erased all your memories. Stefan moved to Savannah and became an auto mechanic. Do you think that you guys are the only ones who get to escape grief?

I'm gonna be alright, Mom. I promise. Everything will be fine after today.

I'm her daughter, Stefan. I was supposed to give her peace and convince her that I would be okay. And thank her for being an amazing mom. God, I don't even remember the last thing that I said to her. I was supposed to be with her in her final moment.

Caroline: Why are you here?
Stefan: Because you're my friend. Because I know what it feels like to lose a mother. And because when you told me you hated me, it was pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time.
Caroline: I think we both know I never really hated you.

Stefan: So, I realize it doesn't matter.
Caroline: What doesn't matter?
Stefan: It doesn't matter what book your mom reads in her final precious moments. It doesn't matter if it's good or if it's terrible. It doesn't matter because life isn't about your final moments. It's about the moments that led up to them.

I'm annoyed. I'm going through a highly emotional situation right now and you're just sitting there mocking me.

Stefan: I'm not big on digging. Callouses.
Caroline: You bury corpses all the time!
Stefan: Yeah, but I don't dig them up.

I was trying to fix something that I had no business trying to fix. It's like textbook definition of a control freak from hell.

Caroline: If you can't fix a coffee machine, how are you able to fix people?
Stefan: Sure you don't need some real food? There's probably a machine around here that vends O-positive.
