I guess it’s safe to say I lost my soft side.

Matt: Car, I've literally never seen you puke before.
Caroline: That is because I'm polite, not pregnant.

There's an abandoned music shop down the way. I'll let you steal a tiny fiddle.

So Damon screws up, Caroline gets grabbed, and I get to wind up dead? Doesn't it ever feel like we're fighting the wrong enemy?

Elena: That's my hope for you, Matt. In our crazy lives together, you've always stayed the same. Human, loyal, and good. My hope is that you spend the rest of your life fighting for people like you.
Matt: You know there's a good chance I'll never see you again...
Elena: Matt, look at everything we've survived. I like our odds.

Tyler: To Alaric Saltzman, who after today will have sex with only one woman for the rest of his life.
Matt: Seriously, just one. You can't even look after this.

Do you know how many times I've died, or nearly died? Most of those times were at the hands of people I thought were my friends. I'm sorry, not people. Vampires.

[to Tyler] I'm sorry about you and Liv. I know you've been going through a lot of crap. But Caroline does not deserve you bringing it here.

22 hours and 18 minutes, that's how long supernaturals have been allowed back in Mystic Falls again and I already know someone who's dead because of it.

Stefan: You're supposed to trust that I'm nothing like Enzo.
Matt: Except that you are.

Jeremy: It's not a big deal.
Matt: Not a big deal. Right. I forgot you don't care about anything.

Can we talk about the irony of killing the only place dumb enough to hire us?

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.
