  • Quotes

    • Klaus: (to Caroline) I never answered your question If I'd ever thought about being human. Once, I was on a track in the Andes and a hummingbird flew up to me. It just hovered there, staring at me. It's tiny heart was pattering like a machine gun. And I thought, what a thing. You know, to have to work that hard everyday just to stay alive. To be constantly on the verge of death...and how satisfying every day must be that it survived. And that was the only time I thought about being human.

    • Caroline: How did I become the bad guy?
      Klaus: Let's get you a drink. I'll tell you all about being the bad guy.

    • Klaus: (to Caroline, referring to the cure for vampirism) Now why would I want to cure myself of being the most powerful creature on the planet?

    • Klaus: I was wondering what time I should pick you up tomorrow.
      Caroline: How about a quarter to never?
      Klaus: I was promised a date in return for one of my hybrids.
      Caroline: Yes, a date. Like, to a movie, where we don't have to talk and I can put at least three seats between us.

    • Caroline: (over the phone) What do you mean, you're not coming? I don't need to remind you that your 'Miss Mystic Falls' attendance record totally sucks. Besides, you're a founding family member. By definition, you have to be here.
      Stefan: (doing push-ups in the forest) Elena and I broke up. By definition, I don't need to be anywhere.
      Caroline: Did that sound as depressing to you as it did to me?
      Stefan: Oh, I'm not depressed. I just want to rip into someone's artery and feed until I can't breathe anymore.
      Caroline: Well, you can't. As your sober sponsor, I'm not going to let that happen.
