  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Elena: You weren't in class, I was worried.
      Stefan: Yeah, I got your messages, and...sorry I didn't get back to you. But what I want to say shouldn't be said over the phone.
      Elena: A simple "I didn't kill my brother" text would have sufficed.
      Stefan: I didn't kill my much as he deserved it.

    • Bonnie: I can't talk to you, you don't listen!
      Caroline: That's not true!
      Bonnie: I'm a witch.
      Caroline: And don't we all know it.

    • Stefan: Now what do you want with Katherine's crystal?
      Damon: She didn't tell you?
      Stefan: We had other things on our mind.
      Damon: I could rip your heart out and not think twice about it.
      Stefan: Yeah, I've heard that before.
      Damon: I have a bigger surprise, Stefan. I'm gonna bring her back.

    • Damon: I got the town off our back, it was for the greater good, but I'm sorry. And to prove it, I'm not going to feed on a human for at least a...week. I'll adopt the Stefan diet, only nothing but feathers.
      Stefan: Because I realize killing your closest and oldest friend is beyond evil and yet, somehow it's worthy of humor.
      Damon: Are you mimicking me?
      Stefan: Yes, Stefan. Now that the secret society of vampire-haters if off our back, I can go back to my routine of "how can I destroy Stefan's life this week?"
      Damon: And I can go back to sulking and Elena-longing and forehead brooding. This is fun, I like this.
      Stefan: And I will finally reveal the ulterior motive behind my evil and diabolical return to Mystic Falls.
      Damon: Yeah...I'm done.

    • Elena: I'm sorry, Stefan. I thought that I couldn't be with you, but I can. You don't have to push me away. I can do this.
      Stefan: I can't. I...I have to leave, Elena. Too many people have died, too much has happened.

    • Caroline: That's twice, that is two heys, you have any other words in your vocabulary?
      Matt: What's wrong with hey?
      Caroline: It reeks of awkward subtext. You spent the night in my bed. There was...cuddling, and then you snuck out before dawn so you wouldn't have to face me. Which I must say, is a total lame guy move that I did not appreciate. Now the heys? Seriously? I mean, I may have been some pathetic, insecure mess after the party, but do not mistake that for me being a pushover. Because I do not let guys mess with my head anymore.

    • Stefan: Are you telling me that Katherine is alive?
      Damon: Well, if that's what you want to call it. She's been trapped in a mystical holding cell for the last century and a half. But you're an expert on starving a vampire, so how do you think she's doing, Stef?

    • Saltzman: (to Jeremy) You know that your old teacher had a jackass file? No joke. It's, uh, typed on a label. It has all the troublemakers in it. But really, it's just an opus to you.

    • Bonnie: I'm gonna scream.
      Damon: Oh, no. Don't do that. Let's stay on point.

    • Stefan: You could always just leave, find another town to turn into your own Gas 'n Sip.

    • Caroline: Let's summon some spirits. This Emily chick has some serious explaining to do.

    • Damon: What are we doing here?
      Stefan: Bonding.

    • Stefan: This isn't about love. This is about revenge.

    • Stefan: You're blaming innocent people for something that happened 145 years ago.
      Damon: No one here is innocent!
