  • Quotes

    • Klaus: (before he drinks Elena's blood) Thank you, Elena.
      Elena: Go to hell.

    • John: (voiceover, in his letter to Elena) Elena, it's no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I'm haunted by how things might have played out differently if I'd been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it's the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It's for that child that I give you my ring. I don't ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same. As I've always loved you, and always will. John.

    • Tyler: You were right. I shouldn't have come home.
      Caroline: No, you just...should have never left. And you shouldn't leave again.
      Tyler: You're kidding, right? This is the second time I've tried to kill you.
      Caroline: Well, no friendship is perfect.

    • Damon: Somehow you're the only one that wins. How'd that happen?
      Katherine: I didn't let love get in the way.
      Damon: Enjoy an eternity alone, Katherine.

    • Damon: (carrying Elena, who is unconscious) You come back as a vampire, I'll stake you myself. So don't.
