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.

Caroline: Let me get you another blanket.
Damon: So you can literally smother her?

A friend? Stefan I know all of your friends. Elena. Me. That's it.

Caroline: What took you so long to answer your phone?
Enzo: My fingers were covered in blood and my touchscreen wouldn't work.

So am I your last stop on the Stefan Salvatore apology tour?

I know how that being back here reminds you of how much we need you, how much I need you.

Well that's the problem Elena. Not all of us are okay with pretending. Some of us prefer to face our problems head on.

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.
