You are just shy of useless.

Klaus [to Stefan]

I'm the one who made him a vampire in the first place. If there's a cure, I owe it to him to find it.


Movie night is supposed to be a distraction. Tomorrow we can return to our regularly scheduled drama.


You wanna do something for me? Keep this from Elena. The last thing she needs is another grave to mourn.


Damon: Somehow you're the only one that wins. How'd that happen?
Katherine: I didn't let love get in the way.
Damon: Enjoy an eternity alone, Katherine.

(voiceover, in his letter to Elena) Elena, it's no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I'm haunted by how things might have played out differently if I'd been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it's the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It's for that child that I give you my ring. I don't ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same. As I've always loved you, and always will. John.


Tyler: You were right. I shouldn't have come home.
Caroline: No, you just...should have never left. And you shouldn't leave again.
Tyler: You're kidding, right? This is the second time I've tried to kill you.
Caroline: Well, no friendship is perfect.

Damon: So let me guess--in addition to the moonstone, the doppelganger, the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe, you need to find this witch burial ground.
Elijah: Because I feel that we've grown so close, Damon, I'll tell you "yes."

Damon: When Klaus dies, you're going to walk out of here without a scratch and Elena's aunt dies. Somehow you're the only one that wins. How'd that happen??
Katherine: I didn't let love get in the way.
Damon: Enjoy eternity alone, Katherine.

It was her or me, I chose her.


Stefan: Look, I know this isn’t the first time you have thought about it, drinking vampire blood to survive and I know I have thought about it a 100 times. Elena: and before all this with Klaus? Do you think about it then? Stefan: Of course I did. Look, if it were my choice I would want to be with you forever. Elena: Why have you never brought it up? Stefan: Because I knew if it was an option you would have. It’s selfish for me to ask you. Elena: Didn’t stop Damon. Stefan: He shouldn’t of done what he did, he did it because he loves you. Elena: But he did this to me, Stefan. Which means he doesn’t really know what love is and to be honest I don’t know if I do. I’m seventeen years old. How do I know any of this yet. I know that I love you Stefan, I know that but my future, our lives together, those were things I was supposed to do as they came along, I was supposed to grow up, decide if I wanna have kids and start a family, grow old and I was supposed to have a lifetime of it. Now, that’s all gone. Stefan: It’s ok to say it, please. Elena: I don’t want to be a vampire, Stefan. I never wanted to be one.

Elena: we are climbing all the way to the top? Stefan: Oh yeah. Elena: well can’t you do one of super power vampire jumpy things. Stefan: No, it’s your last day as a human, why cheat now?
