  • Quotes

    • Klaus: I'd like you all to meet my sister, Rebekah. A word of warning, she can be quite mean.
      Rebekah: Don't be an ass.

    • Rebekah: You two are adorable.
      Caroline: Uh, do we know you?
      Rebekah: You're Caroline, Elena's friend, which makes you Tyler, the werewolf.
      Caroline: And who are you?
      Rebekah: I'm the new girl.

    • Klaus: There's my girl.
      Elena: Klaus.
      Klaus: You are supposed to be dead. What are we gonna do about that?

    • Stefan: I listen to the words that come out of your mouth, and all I hear is the sound of your heart pumping blood through your body. And when that clock ticks down...I'm going to have to feed on you. And you want to know what's worse? I'm not going to be able to stop.
      Elena: I don't believe that. You can fight it. You just have to want it bad enough.
      Stefan: Why, because I love you?
      Elena: Yeah. That's right, Stefan. Because you love me. You'll fight because after everything that we've been through, you owe me that!
      Stefan: You know what? You're right, you're right. I owe you everything. Because through all of this, you are the one thing that has kept me from giving up, from turning it all off. But I can't help what I am, Elena. The more blood that I get, the more I want, and if I get so much as near are dead.

    • Damon: I'm going back.
      Katherine: You're gonna get yourself killed. The Damon I remember wouldn't have been that stupid.
      Damon: I wouldn't have done it for you.

    • Katherine: What if I told you there was a way to kill Klaus? And not dagger dead. Dead dead.
      Damon: I'd say you were desperate and lying. Or drunk. Or a desperate, lying drunk.

    • Matt: Do you realize that just last summer, you and I were lifeguards at the pool? (Bonnie nods) And the only two problems I had in my life were that Elena was breaking up with me and I sucked at CPR.
      Bonnie: Everything was so different.
      Matt: Yeah. Now Elena's dating a vampire, you're a witch, my sister's a ghost, and I'm...I'm just a guy who's wondering how life got so screwed up.

    • Klaus: (as he drags Elena into the room with Stefan) Now this is fascinating, I've never seen this before. The only thing stronger than your craving for blood is your love for this one girl. Why don't you turn it off?
      Stefan: NO!
      Klaus: Come on. Your humanity is killing you. All the guilt must be exhausting.

    • Elena: Where were you, Damon?
      Damon: I shouldn't have left. I promise you I will never leave you again.
