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.
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. Hey...you 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.
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.
