Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength, or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.

Elijah

Hello, Tyler. You look well. I aim to change that.

Klaus

Rebekah: What's her name?
Klaus: Hope. Her name is Hope.

[to Marcel] At first, the promise of an offspring meant little to me, and then I recalled my father and how he held me in contempt from the moment I was born, as yours did with you. I will not do to my child what was done to me. To us.

Klaus

[to Diego] Perhaps I'm not making myself clear here. This is a threat.

Elijah

Elijah: I'm not trying to impress the girl.
Rebekah: Well I should bloody hope you are. Why else are we out here? Come on, Elijah. You've fallen for her. Admit it. It may do wonders for the stick that's lodged up your enduringly stoic ass if you did.

[to Marcel] She woke in the dark, not knowing where she was or who was watching over her. It was your name she called, and if you can grant her comfort, so be it.

Klaus

Klaus: Camille, I appreciate you being here, but we cannot be friends.
Cami: What?
Klaus: You had me pegged from the start. A man damaged by his demons and those demons are not dormant, they are hell-bent on killing me and everything I find beautiful. And you, you are beautiful.

If I had a dollar for every mess my family's gotten me into...

Rebekah

Marcel: You compelled her to go out with me, didn't you? And I thought you really liked me.
Cami: So did I.
Klaus: Well, I mean, to be clear, I only compelled you to give him a chance. Anything you felt for him was quite real. And for the record the level of awkwardness we're all currently experiencing is entirely genuine.

I know what a promise means to you, Elijah, but you made it 200 years ago. I live in the now. If I feel something, I act. If I want something, I take it. I won't choose the dead over the living, so why are you? I'm sorry, Elijah.

Hayley

[to Marcel] Can I suggest you take a step back?

Elijah

The Originals Quotes

They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.

Klaus

There's a saying in my family. Kill a demon today, face the devil tomorrow. Yet even as you dance on that demon's grave, you can't help but wonder, was that demon alone? Or do you have other, deadlier ones to fight? And though you celebrate having won the battle, have you really prepared for the war? So as we dress ourselves in teh armor needed for this new fight, we must first tend to our wounds, starting with the deepest.

Rebekah
