  • Quotes

    • Damon: You should know this, Elena...Stefan didn't screw us over. He screwed us over, but he had a good reason.
      Elena: What?
      Damon: He saved Klaus to save me. And then he stole the coffins to get even.
      Elena: Damon, if he did it to protect you, then why would he even do that...I mean...what does that even mean?
      Damon: What does it mean? It means I'm an idiot. Cause I thought for one second that I wouldn't have to feel guilty anymore.
      Elena: Wait, what are you talking about? Guilty for what?
      Damon: For wanting what I want.
      Elena: Damon...
      Damon: I know, believe me I get it, brother's girl and all. (Damon walks away, then turns around) No, you know what? If I'm going to feel guilty about something, I'm going to feel guilty about this. (walks back to Elena and kisses her)

    • Klaus: My sister seems to be missing. Need to sort that out.
      Damon: Cute, blonde bombshell? Psycho? Shouldn't be too hard to find.

    • Klaus: (to Rebekah, who is still not awake after having the dagger removed) Here we are, Rebekah. Home sweet home. Only took a thousand years. And to think I was counting on you being here with me. But that's all ruined now, isn't it? I'm so sorry...sister. We'll meet again one day. (re-daggers her)

    • Damon: (compelling Jeremy) Here's the thing, Jer. You're gonna go out of town for awhile. A long while. You're gonna stay with some nice family friends in Denver. You're gonna be at a new school and meet new girls, living girls. You're gonna drink a few beers, take an art do whatever you want.
      Alaric: Tell him he's gonna leave Mystic Falls behind and never think twice about it.
      Damon: You're gonna leave Mystic Falls behind and never think twice about it. You're gonna have a better life, Jeremy.
