  • Quotes

    • Damon: So you'd lay it all out on the line for Elena, no matter what?
      Bonnie: No matter what.
      Damon: Good.
      Bonnie: You can't tell her.
      Damon: Your secret's safe with me, but, I mean, with all that power, is there no way to increase your odds?
      Bonnie: Careful, Damon. I might start to think you actually care.
      Damon: We wouldn't want that.

    • Damon: (to Elena) Let me be clear about something. If it comes down to you and the witch again, I will gladly let Bonnie die. I will always choose you.

    • Elena: Bonnie, you're not dying to save my life.
      Bonnie: I have the power to save you! If I don't use it and something happens, that would kill me more.
      Elena: I can't let you.
      Bonnie: Just answer one question... if the situation was reversed, would you do it for me? (Elena pauses) So you know why I have to.

    • Klaus: (to Katherine) I've searched for you for over five hundred years. Your death is going to last at least half that long.

    • Damon: (to Stefan) I don't mind being the bad guy. I'll make all the life and death decisions, while you're busy worrying about collateral damage. And I'll even let her hate me for it. But at the end of the day, I'll be the one to keep her alive.
