  • Quotes (5)

    • Connor: You two are gonna kill me anyway.
      Klaus: Well, let's not be too hasty. I feel we're just getting to know each other.
      Damon: Let's start with the basics. Where are you from? What do you know? Maybe you can cue me in on this greater evil, because I've fought this guy (points to Klaus) and there's nothing more evil than that.
      Klaus: Yeah, truth be told, I'm as evil as it gets.
      Connor: I'm not telling you anything. You think if you kill me it's gonna be over? There's another waiting to take my place.
      Damon: See, this is what I like to hear. Vague threats, ominous prophecies, disappearing tattoos.

    • Damon: So how well did you know Pastor Young?
      Meredith: He was a patient of mine. He was always a nice guy.
      Damon: A nice crazy guy. He wrote a letter about sacrifice and war brewing in Mystic Falls.
      Meredith: What does he mean, "a greater evil is coming"? Don't we have great enough evil already?
      Damon: You'd think.
      Meredith: How'd you get stuck on hunter duty?
      Damon: Stefan had a physics test.
      Meredith: You are a good brother.
      Damon: I'm the bad brother.
      Meredith: You're strung up to a bomb while Stefan plays vampire with the girl who broke your heart. But you are doing a very good job of acting like it doesn't suck.

    • Meredith: (while Damon is trapped) Tell me that is not a bomb.
      Damon: Ok. It's a kitten. It's an adorable, exploding kitten.

    • Elena: (to Stefan, referring to Rebekah) I hate her. I didn't think I was capable of hate, but I hate her and I hate that I hate her.

    • Rebekah: (seeing Matt during a hallucination) I'm surprised you came to my party.
      Matt: Well, I thought about it. You explained why you ran me off the bridge, so the least I could do is explain how I feel. The truth is, Rebekah, I think you're amazing. You've had a thousand years to learn, to grow, and to start fresh. And somehow you've managed to throw it all away. Now you're alone. You're compelling your friends. Your brother hates you. You whine about not finding love. The reason you don't find love is because you don't deserve it.

    • Elena was the fifth main character to get infected with werewolf venom, after Damon, Katherine, Stefan and Caroline. They were all healed by Klaus. Rebekah also got poisoned but she needed no healing since she is an original.

      Is neither a choice? I feel like neither should definitely be a choice. They're both astonishingly awful.
