  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Damon rescues Elena from her car, she faints and he carries her in his arms. When Damon firsts picks her up, Elena grabs his back to support herself, but in the next shot when he is carrying her, Elena's arms are hanging freely.

    • Goof: When Damon is eating a burger at Bree's bar and talking to Elena about Katherine, his beer bottle alternates from his hand to sitting on the table as the camera angle changes.

    • The scenes at Bree's Bar were filmed at The Depot Bar & Grill. This is located at 4122 Emory Street NW in Covington, Georgia.

  • Quotes

    • (while doing shots)
      Elena: You need a bib.
      Damon: Sorry I can't unhinge my jaw like a snake to consume alcohol.

    • Stefan: The first day of school, when we met, it wasn't for the first time, Elena.
      Elena: Then when was it?
      Stefan: May 23rd, 2009.
      Elena: But that was...
      Stefan: That was the day your parents' car went off the bridge.
      Elena: You were there?

    • Elena: (referring to her resemblance to Katherine) You could have told me.
      Stefan: I wanted to tell you.
      Elena: You said no more lies, only the truth. I can handle the truth, Stefan. As crazy as it is, I can handle the fact that you are a vampire, and you have a vampire brother, and that my best friend is a witch. I can accept the fact that the world is a much more mysterious place than I ever thought possible. But this...this lie, I cannot take. What am I to you? Who am I to you?
      Stefan: You are not Katherine. You are the opposite of everything that she was.

    • Elena: My car...there was a man. I hit a man. But then he got up, and...who was that?
      Damon: That's what I would like to know.

    • Lee: My girlfriend went to visit Stefan, and Damon killed her. Got it?
      Elena: Lexi? Lexi was your girlfriend? She told me about you. She said that you were human.
      Lee: I was.
      Elena: Lexi turned you?
      Lee: If you wanna be with someone forever, you have to live forever.

    • Elena: (referring to Katherine) Why do I look like her?
      Stefan: Elena, you've been through so much...
      Elena: Why do I look like her, Stefan? What are you not telling me?
      Stefan: It didn't make any sense to me. You were a Gilbert and she was a Pierce. But the resemblance was too similar. And then I learned the truth. You were adopted, Elena.

    • Elena: Am I going to be safe with you?
      Damon: Yes.
      Elena: Will you promise not to do that mind control thing with me?
      Damon: Yes
      Elena: Can I trust you?
      Damon: Get in the car. C'mon.

    • Bree: (to Elena, referring to Damon) He is good in the sack! Isn't he?

    • Elena: I saved your life.
      Damon: I know.
      Elena: And don't you forget it.

    • Elena: Let's just say that I'm descended from Katherine, does that make me part vampire?
      Damon: Vampires can't procreate... but we love to try. No. If, if you were related, that would mean that Katherine had a child before she was turned.
      Elena: Did Stefan think that he could use me to replace her?
      Damon: It's kinda creepy if you ask me.

    • Damon: You okay?
      Elena: Don't pretend to care. I know you're gloating inside.

    • Damon: It's not like we all hang out together at the vamp bar and grill.

    • Alaric: (voiceover) I found one...after years of research and study. There it was, right in front of me. I was terrified. As I stared it in the eyes, I drove a stake through its heart. I was right about Mystic Falls. There's evil here. I can sense it, feel it. It's everywhere.

    • Elena: (On the striking resemblence she and Kathreine have) I look like her.

    • Elena: This is kidnapping.
      Damon: That's a little melodramatic, don't you think?
      Elena: You're not funny.
