Matt: Uh, hey, April. We don't open til eleven.
April: Uh, sorry. I wasn't, like, trying to scare you or stalk you or whatever. I just...um, I came to ask if you've seen Rebekah.
Matt: Why would I have seen Rebekah?
April: Oh, I just assumed. I mean, aren't...aren't you guys kind of like a thing?
Matt: (laughs) Rebekah and I are not a thing.
April: Well, I, I, I mean I'm worried about her. She said she'd help me find stuff out about the fire that killed my dad and then she just disappeared.
(Connor walks out holding a knife on Jeremy)
Connor: Trust me. That's the least of your problems.
Stefan: Thanks for not saying anything to Elena.
Damon: About what? The cure we don't have, can't find, and probably doesn't exist? You're welcome.
Caroline: Uh, who are you?
Hayley: Who the hell are you?
Caroline: I'm Caroline.
Hayley: Oh! You're Tyler's girl. Told me about you. I'm Hayley.
Caroline: Well, Hayley, that's pretty crazy, 'cause I haven't heard a thing about you.
Hayley: I've been staying here a few days.
Caroline: Excuse me?
Hayley: I needed a place to crash, Ty's a buddy, he was kind enough to offer.
Caroline: I know all of Ty's buddies and I haven't heard about you, so how about we cut the crap?
Hayley: Yeah, I don't do teen drama, take it up with Ty.
Professor Shane: Right now just relax, drink your tea. I got this in Australia when I was backpacking with these Aborigine spirit guides. Trust me, it's better when you smoke it, but I'm trying to be a role model. (Bonnie laughs) Bonnie, listen the thing is, what I have in mind might come off as a little unorthodox.
Bonnie: Now I'm officially curious.
Stefan: (while they're discussing the best way to confront Connor) All right, hold on. You're not all going.
Tyler: He shot me, like, nine times. If we're killing him, I want in.
Elena: He's got Jeremy, I'm going.
Stefan: Listen, nobody is going anywhere until I figure out what we're walking into.
Damon: Until you figure it out? Is that where you've been all morning, out buying bossy pants?
Damon: We have a plan. The plan is, I'm gonna rip Connor's heart out and I'm gonna feed it to him.
Stefan: That's not a plan.
Elena: (voiceover, writing in her diary) Dear Diary, I know it's been a while. A long while. I haven't needed...I haven't wanted to write this stuff down. But I don't wanna say it out loud either. The thing is, I'm a vampire. And I hate it.
Stefan: (voiceover, writing about Elena in his journal) She's been spiraling since her transition. There are times I barely recognize her. But now, for the first time in a while, there's hope.
Elena: I feel hopeless. Depressed, angry, but most of all, I'm scared.
Stefan: Somewhere in the world there's a cure for vampires. If I can get it, Elena can be human again. I can give her back her life.
Elena: A part of me just wants to end it. But then I think of Jeremy. I'm all that he has left. So I need to find a way through this. No matter what it takes.
Stefan: So that's what I need to do. No matter what Klaus asks, no matter what lies I have to tell or secrets I have to keep, I'll do it. No matter what it takes.
