  • Quotes

    • Klaus: I offer Elena's future happiness. You see, what she needs right now is to be rid of you lot and to fall in love with a human. Maybe that nice football player. You know, the blond one.
      Damon: Matt Donovan? Really?
      Klaus: Yeah, why not? They'll marry, live a long and fruitful life, and pop out a perfect family.
      Stefan: And continue the Petrova bloodline. Every few hundred years, you'll have a new doppelganger to drain and never run out of hybrids. Right, Klaus?
      Klaus: Consider it a small return on my investment in her well-being. See, after you hand me back the coffin, I'll ensure her safety for the rest of her natural life. You know it's what's best for her.

    • Caroline: How can you hate who I am so much?
      Bill: No, no, no, sweetheart, I don't hate you. I love you. You're strong. You're beautiful. You're good.
      Caroline: No, I'm not.
      Bill: And even after everything that's happened to you, you are exactly who your mother and I hoped you'd grow up to be.
      Caroline: (cries) Then please don't leave me, Daddy. Please...please don't leave me! Daddy, just don't leave me.
      Bill: Shh. Parents aren't supposed to outlive their children, Caroline. It's okay. This is life. This is what it means to be human.

    • Elijah: Stefan, where is the lovely Elena tonight?
      Stefan: I don't know, ask Damon.
      Klaus: (laughs) I'm sorry, you missed so much. Ah, trouble in paradise.

    • Elena: Did you kill the medical examiner?
      Stefan: Why would you think I did that?
      Elena: Maybe because I don't know what you're capable of anymore.
      Stefan: Well, believe what you want, Elena.
      Elena: I don't want to believe any of it, Stefan.
      Stefan: But you had to ask me anyway.

    • Stefan: (referring to Elena) I love her, Damon.
      Damon: So do I.
