Damon: I see you decided to join us. I was just asking Peter what's the worst thing he's ever done.
Alaric: Well, mine was not making sure you were permanently dead.

Damon: Merry Christmas, Ric.
Alaric: I killed you.
Caroline: WHAT?
Alaric: He deserved it.

Caroline: You can't blame this on me!
Ric: Why not, Caroline? My kids should've never been involved in this.
Caroline: Our kids.
Ric: My kids. They're mine, Caroline. Mine and Jo's.

I'll tell you, I could give a damn about your plans, because they're never going to happen. I'm going to find you, and I'm going to kill you. No discussions, no last minute pleas for my sympathy. You have been in my home with me, and somehow in all your scheming you've missed just how far I'm willing to go to protect my children. I'm not coming for you. I'm coming for them. But the longer you run, the more I'm going to hurt you.

Welcome to your psychic hell.

You know, I never had a brother. Damon was the closest thing. And I have to believe that if you have gotten him back before, there has got to be a way to do it again.

Georgie: You don't think I'm crazy?
Ric: You don't even approach the threshold of the crazy I've seen.

Caroline: Is this a bad time?
Ric: No, I'm just getting used to the millennial work ethic.

Look, we can't escape this life, Care. So shouldn't we make sure we're at least living it right?

You changed my life, you know that? You completely turned it around. And for that, i will always love you even though I know you don’t love me the same way.

No matter what happens, Caroline, you, me, the kids, we’re a family. We will always, always be a family.

I love you, and I want to marry you and be your loving, honest, committed partner. And I want our little family to work. But I don't want it if you'd rather be with someone else.

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.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
