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 Hayley] Do you have any idea how rare love is?

Elijah

I'm sorry. You may think I know nothing of your grief, but you are wrong. In the days after I left this city, I thought you were dead. It was years before I could speak your name so keenly did I feel that loss. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Klaus

Davina: I'll die whether I do this or not. Right now the only option is whether I take everyone else with me. When you look at it that way, it's kind of selfish not to do it.
Marcel: There has to be another way. This is not how it ends.
Davina: And if it is, if this is all I have, I've had a lot. I had Monique, and I had Tim, and I had someone who fought for me from the moment he met me. Most people don't get that even if they live to be a hundred. Marcel, I'm ready.

Well, this is no family reunion without our mother! I'll fetch her!

Klaus

Kill the demon today, face the Devil tomorrow. Count me in.

Rebekah

Klaus: This is not a democracy!
Elijah: You're quite right. This is family.

You're a bit of a mad genius, Elijah! Count me in!

Klaus

Listen, Hayley, a word of advice when dealing with Elijah. Don't do as I do. Just apologize. He's accomplished at many things, but he is a master at forgiveness.

Klaus

[to Davina] One survivor to another, all I want to do is keep you alive, I swear.

Marcel

Elijah: [to Sabine] You ever experienced something so profoundly wonderful that when it was taken from you your life felt unbearable?
Sabine: Yes, I have felt that. And I have the scars to prove it.
Elijah: I believe that when you love someone and that person loves you in return you're uniquely vulnerable. They have a power to hurt you that's like nothing else.

[to Sophie] Fair only gets you so far, love. Clever gets you further.

Rebekah

The Italians call them Strega. The Yoruba of West Africa call them Aje, meaning mother. Where my mother was from they called them Hexa, and here, we call them witch.
