  • Quotes (10)

    • Stefan: Damon hasn't said a word to me. Every time I try to talk to him he shuts me down. Elena: Do you think he's still trying to find Katherine? Stefan: I don't know. He waited a hundred and forty-five years, only to find out that Katherine could not care less. I mean, it's gotta hurt, right? Elena: And it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    • Stefan: This is all kind of new to me. I usually keep to myself, I don't always fit in. Matt: That's because you're that guy. Stefan: What guy? Matt: The guy who seems like he has everything so the people who don't kind of run the other way. Stefan: Is that what I seem like? Matt: Pretty much. Stefan: Hmm. What a dick.

    • Stefan: Have you thought any more about what you're gonna do? Elena: About what? Isobel, my vampire birth mother, who's related to my vampire ancestor, Katherine, who screwed over your vampire brother? Nah. Haven't thought about it at all.

    • Elena: Have you ever even been on a double date before? Stefan: Oh, absolutely. Uh, '72. Hef and the twins. Elena: What? Stefan: Yeah. Playmates. I got Miss June.

    • Jeremy: Why didn't you...kill me? Anna: I don't know. Maybe I'm a sucker for guys like you. Jeremy: Like what? Anna: Lost. But why would you confront me about it? Why would you risk it? Jeremy: Because if it was true, maybe...I don't know. Maybe it's true about Vicki. And also because...I want you to turn me.

    • (Stefan, Caroline, Matt, and Elena walk into Stefan's house) Caroline: (referring to Damon and Matt's mother) Yeah. Uh, yeah, this is much better than watching Damon visit Cougar Town. This is a reference to the television series Cougar Town, which debuted in 2009, about an older divorced woman who begins dating younger men.
