  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Stefan: Damon hasn't said a word to me. Every time I try to talk to him he shuts me down.
      Elena: Do you think he's still trying to find Katherine?
      Stefan: I don't know. He waited a hundred and forty-five years, only to find out that Katherine could not care less. I mean, it's gotta hurt, right?
      Elena: And it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    • Stefan: This is all kind of new to me. I usually keep to myself, I don't always fit in.
      Matt: That's because you're that guy.
      Stefan: What guy?
      Matt: The guy who seems like he has everything so the people who don't kind of run the other way.
      Stefan: Is that what I seem like?
      Matt: Pretty much.
      Stefan: Hmm. What a dick.

    • Stefan: Have you thought any more about what you're gonna do?
      Elena: About what? Isobel, my vampire birth mother, who's related to my vampire ancestor, Katherine, who screwed over your vampire brother? Nah. Haven't thought about it at all.

    • Elena: Have you ever even been on a double date before?
      Stefan: Oh, absolutely. Uh, '72. Hef and the twins.
      Elena: What?
      Stefan: Yeah. Playmates. I got Miss June.

    • Jeremy: Why didn't you...kill me?
      Anna: I don't know. Maybe I'm a sucker for guys like you.
      Jeremy: Like what?
      Anna: Lost. But why would you confront me about it? Why would you risk it?
      Jeremy: Because if it was true, maybe...I don't know. Maybe it's true about Vicki. And also because...I want you to turn me.

    • Frederick: Katherine.
      Elena: I'm sorry. You have the wrong person.

    • Matt: Is there anything you're not good at?
      Stefan: Double dating.

    • Jeremy: I actually have to write another paper. I was thinking about squeezing in one more out on the vampires of Mystic Falls.
      Anna: Really? Haven't you exhausted the subject?
      Jeremy: No. No, I wanna go deeper, you know? I wanna understand why people were labeled as vampires back in the day. I mean, maybe there is such a thing as vampires. They're just different from the way we always thought they were.
      Anna: What do you mean?
      Jeremy: Well, uh, maybe they're normal...and good. Just outsiders, you know? Um, misunderstood.

    • Kelly: You're new around here.
      Damon: Oh, on the contrary. I'm very old.

    • Damon: What exactly are you trying to achieve?
      Pearl: Mystic Falls is our home, Damon. They took that from us. Our land, our home. It's time we rebuild.
      Damon: What, are you crazy? That was 1864. Wake up, woman. The world has moved on.

  • Allusions

    • (Stefan, Caroline, Matt, and Elena walk into Stefan's house)
      Caroline: (referring to Damon and Matt's mother) Yeah. Uh, yeah, this is much better than watching Damon visit Cougar Town.

      This is a reference to the television series Cougar Town, which debuted in 2009, about an older divorced woman who begins dating younger men.
