- Trivia & Quotes
Stefan: What, you think I want to be this person? I hurt you, Elena. I bit you. I hate myself for what I did to you.
Elena: Then show it. Do something. Stefan, anything is better than trying to convince me that you don't care.
Stefan: I can't.
Stefan: If I let myself care, all I feel is pain.
Elena: Do you think I like going behind your back? I don't. But if I hadn't asked Stefan to help, then you would have tried to be the hero, and you would have ruined everything.
Damon: Sorry for trying to keep you alive. Clearly Stefan doesn't give a crap anymore.
Elena: Now you're mad at me for including Stefan?
Damon: No, I'm mad at you because I love you.
Elena: Well, maybe that's the problem.
Caroline: Is that why you collect hybrids? A little servant army to take you places and bring you things?
Klaus: You're making assumptions.
Caroline: Then why do you need Tyler? Stop controlling him. Give him his life back.
Klaus: You know, this has been a fun evening, but I think it's time for you to leave.
Caroline: I get it. Your father didn't love you, so you assume that no one else will, either. And that's why you compel people or you sire them or you try to buy them off, but that's not how it works. You don't connect with people, because you don't even try to understand them.
Elena: What are you doing here? I know your mom's rules. No hurting the locals.
Rebekah: Get over yourself, Elena. It's not all about you.
Damon: Can we go back in time to the old Stefan who cared if Elena lived or died?
Stefan: What for? That's your job now.
