  • Quotes

    • Rebekah: What's going on with you? You' tonight.
      Stefan: I can't listen to this music without thinking of my best friend, Lexi. We spent most of the '80's together. I remember this one time she snuck us backstage and compelled half the band to do tequila shots with us before the show. She was fearless. Kinda like you.
      Rebekah: So, you slept with her, too?
      Stefan: No, it wasn't like that. I was just a better person when I was with her. I didn't think I'd ever feel that way again.
      Rebekah: Until Elena.
      Stefan: Until Elena. And now that's over.

    • Rebekah: So is everything about the '80's so...excessive?
      Stefan: It had it's charm. Say Anything, Lloyd Dobler standing outside of a bedroom window with a boombox over his head, desperately trying to get back the girl of his dreams. Princess Bride, Wesley slays giant rats for love. Breakfast Club, one detention turns a bunch of outcasts into allies.
      Rebekah: So it was a decade of sentimental drivel, as well?
      Stefan: Well, I was gonna say love, friendship, possibility of anything happening. You would've loved it.
      Rebekah: And why is that?
      Stefan: Because as much as we both hate to admit it, we care about those things.
