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

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

[to Hayley] I'm beginning to think that you and I are a lot alike. We're both castoffs who've learnt to fight when we're backed into a corner.

Klaus

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] 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 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

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

Elijah

We were innocent once, Elijah. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in shadow. We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armor. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family.

Klaus

Elijah: I suppose we shall have to call this your white period.
Klaus: I'm missing a crucial color in my palette, that of my enemies' blood.

Klaus! Get out here and tell me what you've done with our brother you narcissistic, back-stabbing wanker!

Rebekah

Cami: You clean up pretty well yourself.
Klaus: Oh, don't be fooled, love. I'm the devil in disguise.

[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

My dearest Hope, I do not know how this will find you. As a child full of wonder, a teenager full of opinions, or a woman with the world at her feet. I write to tell you that I love and to explain that in our family's darkest hour I was called upon to save my siblings, so I did. Please do not mourn me. Whatever pain I endure I do so in service of those I love. My sole regret is that I will be away from you. Be good to your mother. I draw comfort knowing that she will protect you, and I know she will not rest until our family is united. Until then, my sacrifice will allow you to grow. To become a beautiful daughter I can now only imagine. Please remember that you are the legacy this family has always desired. The promise we fought to protect. You are and always will be our hope.

Klaus
