Logan: (to Damon, referring to becoming a vampire) Dude, it's not like the Welcome Wagon was waiting with a bundt cake and a handbook. It's been a learn-as-you-go process.
Jeremy: (voiceover, reading from the journal of Jonathan Gilbert) I live in fear. It consumes me. In the early evening, when I see the sun begin to fade, the fear comes. Because I know that the night brings death.
Jenna: (referring to Jonathan Gilbert) Yeah, he was a writer...short stories, horror stuff.
Jeremy: Oh, he wrote fiction? I figured he was just a lunatic or a drunk.
Jenna: Well, he was a Gilbert. Probably a little bit of both.
Elena: (referring to Stefan) He knows how I feel and where I stand, and I know where he stands, but it doesn't matter. He's leaving, moving away.
Jenna: Where is he going?
Elena: I've stopped asking questions, the answers get scary.
Elena: I know you say you don't want to be in my life because you bring all the bad stuff.. But i already have the bad stuff. I was buried in it.
Elena: If you walk away, it's for you. Because I know what I want. Stefan, I love you.
Damon: I don't side with anyone. You piss me off. I want you dead.
Mayor Stratton: Do I look like a student?
Alaric: You look like a full-grown, alpha male douchebag.
Logan: You bitch! I died for you, for this town. You've known me since I was six! And you swept me under the rug like dirt.
Sheriff Forbes: You knew what you were getting into.
Logan: I was one of you.
Sheriff Forbes: And now you're one of them.
Logan: Watch your back, Sheriff.
Damon: I was ambushed. I was shot. Now, I'm vengeful.
Stefan: (to Logan) Don't. Ever. Threaten. Me. Again.
Elena: You're looking out for me.
Stefan: Hope that's okay.
Jeremy: (to Tyler) Art implies culture and culture implies... not you.
Logan: I'm conflicted.
Damon: Welcome to the club.
(On Logan not being able to go into his house)
Damon: You have to be invited in.
Logan: I live alone.
Damon: That sucks.
Stefan: How are we supposed to find this person?
Damon: Let the adults handle this stuff.
Bonnie: She needs someone nice like him, as opposed to a homicidal vampire like Damon.
Jenna: You just pointed out that I have no self-control. Clever strategy.
Elena: I don't wanna talk about my future, Stefan. Because everything you're saying makes it perfectly clear you aren't gonna be in it.
Damon: We're a team. We could travel the world together. We could try out for The Amazing Race!
Logan: (To Damon) Why am I so overly emotional? All I can think of is my ex-girlfriend. I want to be with her and bite her, and stuff.
Stefan: You don't have any friends, Damon.
Damon: You're right, Stefan. I only have you.
