Mayor Lockwood: Klaus, please, don't hurt him. He's my son. He's all I have.
Klaus: And you're all he has. There's a beautiful symmetry to that, don't you think?

Stefan: Well, Jeremy is the hunter, and he has to keep killing vampires to complete his mark, but we can't quite figure out how to keep him from killing us.
Klaus: Sounds like quite the chore, which is why I feel perfectly justified doing a little charity work.

Loneliness, Stefan. That's why me and you memorialize the dead.

Klaus: I was wondering what time I should pick you up tomorrow?
Caroline: How about a quarter to never?
Klaus: I was promised a date in return for one of my hybrids.
Caroline: Yes, a date like to a movie where we don't have to talk and I can put at least three seats between us.

Caroline: How did I become the bad guy?
Klaus: Let me get you a drink. And I'll tell you all about being the bad guy.

Caroline, you're beautiful. But if you don't stop talking, I will kill you.

Klaus: I was feeling benevolent.
Stefan: You're never benevolent.

Truth be told, I'm as evil as it gets.

Tyler is otherwise occupied, making big decisions about honesty and what not.

Klaus: That's impossible.
Tyler: Is it? Or maybe real love is stronger than fake loyalty.

Klaus: How did you break it?
Tyler: By breaking every bone in my body a hundred times for the girl I love.

You know once you choose a Salvatore, you'll destroy their bond.

Klaus [to Elena]

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 are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
