Matt: I just don't get it, your thing with them.
Elena: I know it doesn't make sense. But at the beginning, after my parents died, there was something about being with Stefan that just...felt safe.
Matt: Safe? Elena, he's a vampire.
Elena: I know, believe me, just saying it out loud sounds crazy, but...it's like I knew that he would never stop loving me, like he would never...
Elena: Die. Like he would never die.
Matt: Like your parents did. And Damon?
Elena: Damon just sort of snuck up on me. He got under my skin, and no matter what I do, I just...I can't shake him.
Matt: Once you fall in love with someone, I don't know if...I don't know if you can ever shake 'em.
