  • Quotes

    • Damon: Is Stefan here?
      Elena: No. Why? Is something wrong?
      Damon: He went out in the woods and didn't come back. I can't get him on his phone, I figured he was here with you.
      Elena: (tries calling him) It's going straight to voicemail. Where could he be?
      Damon: You're not gonna like what I'm thinking.

    • Damon: (referring to Pearl) She's gonna help me get Katherine back.
      Elena: Of course she is. Damon gets what he wants, as usual, no matter who he hurts in the process.
      Damon: You don't have to be snarky about it.
      Elena: I woke up this morning to learn that all the vampires have been released from the tomb. I've earned snarky.

    • Jeremy: Come on, you can't keep saying no to me.
      Anna: Look, I'm not gonna turn someone who learned everything he knows about vampires from Netflix.

    • (Mayor Lockwood invites Pearl and Anna to join him and Tyler at the Mystic Grill)
      Tyler: Be more creepy, Dad. Not like your son is standing right here.
      Mayor Lockwood: Grow up. Elections are coming; she's a constituent. And a rich one from the looks of it.
      Tyler: And you can tell all that by looking at her ass?

    • Pearl: Jeremy Gilbert? Is that what you've been up to?
      Anna: He's my friend. What's the big deal?
      Pearl: His family is the reason I was stuck in a tomb for over a century.
      Anna: That doesn't mean he'll make the same choices.
      Pearl: I want you to stop seeing him.
      Anna: I've been on my own for a long time, Mother. I can make my own decisions.
      Pearl: Then stop acting like a child. As soon as Jeremy finds out what you really are, he will turn on you.
      Anna: He already knows.
      Pearl: What did you just say?
      Anna: Jeremy knows. He likes it, and he likes me.

    • Damon: Teacher by day, vampire hunter by night.
      Saltzman: I have you to thank for that.

    • Jeremy: So, I have an answer.
      Anna: To what?
      Jeremy: Why you should turn me.
      Anna: We're back to that?
      Jeremy: Look. I wake up every day and I feel okay, but there's something missing. Like a hole. Some people, they fit. In life or whatever. I, I don't.
      Anna: So, you want a pity turn. I don't think so.
      Jeremy: No, you should turn me because I don't have anything else.
      Anna: Do you even know why we turn other people? It's not to give someone a one-way ticket out of loner-hood. Okay? One, we need someone to do our dirty work. Two, revenge. Three, boredom, but you know that never turns out well. And then, you know, there's the obvious one. You love someone so much that you would do anything to spend all of eternity with them. I'm sorry but you don't fit any of those categories yet.

    • Stefan: I gotta get my strength back up.
      Damon: I have two liters of soccer mom in the fridge. No?
      Stefan: We'll talk when I get back?
      Damon: All right. Give my regards to the squirrels.

    • Anna: I love storms.
      Jeremy: Is that a vampire thing? 'Cause I read vampires don't like running water.
      Anna: That's only Dracula. Yeah, he was a complete wuss. Never showered, really smelly.
      Jeremy: Seriously?
      Anna: (laughs) First rule about vampires: don't believe anything you read.
