[to Caroline] Yesterday you told me that you made a list of all the ways that loving me has ruined your life, and I get it. I haven't made it easy on you, but I made a list too. Of all the ways that loving you has changed mine. You were by my side when I needed a friend. You made me laugh, you made me dance. You told me that I would find love again, and I understand if you need time to heal and to live your life without me. I understand if I have to wait for you. And I will. I'll wait. And when you're ready for me, I will be ready for you.

Elena: Thank you for bumping into me that day in the hallway. I never thought I would ever be happy again and then I met you. You quite literally saved my life. I love you so much, which is why I can't wait to find out what new life you've chosen for yourself in sixty or seventy years, whenever I see you again.
Stefan: I can guarantee you it won't be high school.
Elena: Just be happy. I'll see you soon.

I don't think Elena necessarily came into my life to be soul mate. I mean, she was. We loved each other, but she was also the only person I've ever met who actually believed that my brother was worth loving. And she reminded me that I used to believe that about him too. Her faith in him, it brought Damon and me back together, and yeah, I loved her, more than I thought I could love somebody else, but I think in the end I needed him more than I needed her.

Elena: People are uncomfortable around Salvatores in tuxes. It stirs...feelings.
Stefan: Uh oh. Elena's human again. Am I sensing another brother swap?

Damon: What do you think I should do?
Stefan: That's the thing, Damon. I can't tell you. Elena can't tell you. You have to want to be human for yourself.

Damon: You get a night, Stefan. A night to beat yourself up, do your shame spiral, and then you have to go after Caroline.
Stefan: I don't need a night. I'll find her.

It must be so exhausting overthinking everything, denying your own urge to kill and just be done with them.

[to Caroline] You are an embarrassment to humanity-free vampires everywhere.

Stefan: Neat, organized Caroline staying within the lines. Good at control, terrible at revenge.
Caroline: I dismantled your bike.
Stefan: I tore your director's head off with my teeth.

Damon: So Saint Caroline keeps her halo even with no humanity.
Stefan: Yeah, until she snaps and strangles somebody with it.

Stefan: I think you were wrong about Caroline. I realize that I may not be able to explain what I feel for her, but it is something, and yeah, maybe all love isn't true love in the messed up way that you and I have experienced it, but I think this could turn into something even better.
Damon: Well then, brother, stop wasting your time sitting here with me.

Stefan: Look, something happened between Caroline and me.
Damon: Oooh, finally.

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 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.
