  • Trivia

    • Goof: Bonus material from the DVD reveals that Katherine's date of birth is June 22, 1642. However, in season 2 episode 9 it is revealed that Katherine gives birth to her daughter in 1490 and meets Klaus in England in 1492, more than 150 years before her supposed birth.

    • Bonus material from the DVD reveals that Katherine's date of birth is June 22, 1642 which Elena confirms is also her own birth date. That makes Elena's date of birth June 22, 1993 given that her 18th birthday is celebrated in the first episode of season 3, which takes place in 2011.

    • Goof: When Stefan and Caroline join the party at the Lockwood swimming hole, the makeup around Caroline's eyes varies from very dark to barely visible as the scenes change.

  • Quotes

    • Vanessa: Werewolves will attack humans, but instinct and centuries of rivalry have hardwired them to hunt their prey of choice...vampires.
      Damon: Well if werewolves are hunting vampires, I would know about it.
      Vanessa: Not if there aren't that many werewolves left alive. Hundreds of years ago vampires hunted them almost to extinction.
      Elena: Why would they do that?
      Vanessa: To protect themselves. Legend has it that a werewolf bite is fatal to vampires.

    • Damon: (to Alaric) If this wolfman thing is true, I've seen enough movies to know it's not good. It means Mason Lockwood is a real-life Lon Chaney, and that little Tyler punk may just very well be Lon Chaney, Jr. Which means Béla Lugosi, meaning me, is totally screwed.

    • Caroline: (referring to Mason) Why are you looking at him with your serious vampire look?
      Stefan: My wha- My serious vampire look?
      Caroline: Mmm hmm. I mean it's different from your worried vampire look. Neither of which stray too far from your "Hey it's Tuesday" look.
      Stefan: Oh, I get it. Okay. You think I'm, um, you think I'm too serious. Is that it?
      Caroline: I mean I wasn't going to say it like that but...
      Stefan: Hmm.

    • Caroline: So you're saying that now, I'm basically an insecure, neurotic, control freak on crack?
      Stefan: Well I wasn't going to say it like that, but...

    • Caroline: (to Stefan) I haven't been in the sun for days, and everyone's at the swimming hole having fun, and Matt is there, and he finally told me that he loved me, but I've been blowing him off, and now you want me to eat bunnies, and I'm kind of freaking out okay?!
