Stefan hangs up his hero hair for the girl. And here I thought my future was bleak.


Damon: Every time I look at you all I see is NOT Elena.
Bonnie: I'm so sorry this happened, but I lost Elena too, Damon. And you're one of the few reminders I have of her to hold on to so you can either resent me or love me, but you're stuck with me.

Stefan: If you think this is a crazy plan, now's the time to speak up.
Caroline: Is there any version of this plan where you're not worried about me?
Stefan: Probably not.

Stefan: New rule. You live your life, you heal, and in the meantime, we're friends.
Caroline: I like that rule.

Bonnie: Do you have any idea how long three seconds are in a life or death situation?
Damon: In the first second, I thought how amazing it would feel to have Elena in my arms again. By second number two, I had kissed her. And by the third, I remembered you're my best friend and that if anything ever happened to you, I would lose my mind. So yes, Bonnie, I do know how long three seconds are.
Bonnie: Just checking...
Damon: I will wait for her. And you're going to help me. You're stuck with me too.

Elena: I love you, Damon Salvatore.
Damon: I love you too.

[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.


Damon: Things are going to be awfully dull around here without you.
Elena: No they're not, Damon, because you're not going to sit around waiting for me.

Damon: You could've just told me what to do.
Elena: I knew what you were going to do.
Damon: You knew that the evil, selfish Damon Salvatore would give up the love of his life to save her best friend.
Elena: I knew that the love of my life would stand by his best friend even if it meant having to live without me for a little while.

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.

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.

Bonnie Bennett. You have spent your entire life making sacrifices for me. Now it's my turn to do it for you.


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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
