  • Quotes

    • Caroline: (drags Tyler in the bathroom after seeing blood on his shirt) Vampire 101: don't bring your breakfast to school!

    • Matt: You can't just keep appearing like this. Freaks me out.
      Vicki: I'm a ghost, it's all I got.

    • Caroline: You're a vampire now, Tyler. Everything about your personality is heightened. So you have to be careful.
      Tyler: I will. I promise. Just...don't hate me. Everything I like about me, is you.

    • Stefan: Elena, wait. You could have let me die in that fire tonight. Why didn't you?
      Elena: Because I still have hope.
      Stefan: After everything I've done, still think I'll be able to find my humanity again.
      Elena: Yes, I do. I know who you really are better than anyone, Stefan. And I'm not giving up.
      Stefan: Elena, do you have any idea how pathetic that makes you?
      Elena: No, Stefan, it makes me strong.

    • Tyler: You're always running out on me.
      Caroline: You have to earn the over-nighter.
      Tyler: I consider that a challenge.

    • Damon: We're forgetting a key player here. Rebecca? Wherever Stefan goes, the blond ponytail tends to follow.
      Elena: Which is why it's your job to keep her away.
      Damon: How?! She's an original. Last time I checked, we're out of daggers.
      Elena: So then preoccupy her with your charm.
      Alaric: Might have better luck finding the dagger.
      Damon: So are ever not going to be mad at me, Ric?
      Alaric: Doubtful.

    • Damon: I'll do whatever it is you need me to do, Elena. No one's going to hurt you. Especially not my brother.

    • Elena: (after Stefan shoves someone who bumped into her) Who are you?!
      Stefan: I'm a guy who's been assigned to protect a human blood bag. I mean, no offense or anything.

    • Alaric: Look, I get why you're here. Stefan hurt you. You don't want it to happen again.
      Elena: But you think that I'm crazy. To believe that I can protect myself from a vampire who's flipped the switch on his humanity.
      Alaric: I think you found a way to get out of bed this morning. And that makes you the strongest person I know. I think that you can do pretty much anything.
