  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Elena: I've been going through Stefan's old journals. Every single time that he's gone off the rails in the past, his best friend Lexi's been the one to bring him back.
      Alaric: So, where is she now that we need her?
      Jeremy: She's dead. And you want me to try to reach her, don't you?
      Elena: I thought if I knew how she did it, maybe I could help him.
      Jeremy: Look, I don't even know if she's on the other side.
      Elena: Is that what it's called?
      Jeremy: That's what Anna calls it. There's not like an official brochure or anything.
      Alaric: So, what is it? Like some sort of supernatural purgatory?
      Jeremy: Anna said it's, it's like being here with all of us, only we can't see her or hear her. And she can't interact with anyone. She's all alone.

    • Damon: How can you know so much?
      Mason: There's not much to do on the other side but sit around and watch other people screw things up.

    • Jeremy: (about Anna) I can touch her, Elena. I can kiss her again. And I know it's wrong and I, I know that I shouldn't feel this way but I do. I love her. I've always loved her.
      Elena: But it's not real. She's dead. Gone. Everything that you're holding onto is in the past, Jer. Are you gonna love a ghost for the rest of your life?

    • Grams: (to Bonnie before she leaves) You are stronger than all of this. I'm so proud of you.

    • Damon: Greetings, Blondie...Witchie. I think you got your voodoo wires all crossed when you got rid of Vicki Donovan.
      Bonnie: What do you mean? Why?
      Damon: Because I'm pretty sure I just got spit-roasted by Mason Lockwood's ghost.
      Bonnie: What?
      Caroline: And why would you think that?
      Damon: Maybe because he chained me to a chair and shoved a hot poker in my chest. Let's just say I'm having deja vu.
      Caroline: I thought you said ghosts couldn't physically interact with people.
      Bonnie: They can't.
      Damon: Yeah, well, I don't have time for a vengeful Lockwood. When I kill someone, they're supposed to stay dead. Whatever you screwed up, fix it.

    • Lexi: (kicks Stefan's chair) Wake up, sleepy head. (Stefan wakes up) How ya feeling?
      Stefan: (struggles in his restraints) What is this? Let me out of here!
      Lexi: Shhh...inside voices, please. I'm trying to get inside your head.

    • Stefan: Did I ever tell you how glad I am that you're dead?
      Lexi: Aw, I miss you too friend.

    • Lexi: (referring to Stefan) He's still in there Elena, you just have to break through.
      Elena: It's okay Lexi, I know what to do now. You can be free.

    • Mason: Meet me at the old Lockwood cellar. Bring a shovel...come alone.
      Damon: You're gonna to bury me alive?
      Mason: Don't tempt me.

    • Stefan: You know, I was wondering when you were going to give up. Lexi gave you...enough of a glimpse into your tragic future.
      Elena: I haven't given up, Stefan. I still have hope. But there's nothing that I can do until you get yours back. can break through this. Fight for it, feel something. Anything, Stefan. Because if you don't, you're going to lose me forever. I won't love a ghost for the rest of my life.

    • Damon: All right, which way?
      Mason: I don't know, flip a coin.
      Damon: Aren't you supposed to be all-knowing?
      Mason: I'm a ghost, not God.

    • Damon: Let's get to it. I killed you, you want revenge. Get in line.
      Mason: Actually, I want an apology.
      Alaric: (laughs) Good luck with that.

    • Lexi: Hi.
      Stefan: You're dead.
      Lexi: Well, technically, so are you.

    • Alaric: You don't have to be here, Stefan.
      Stefan: You know what, Alaric? You're right, I don't. But Elena's here, and I look out for Elena. Besides, there's going to be people everywhere tonight. So there's going to be lots to eat. (laughs) I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Loosen up.
