Stefan: Three. That's the number of people Caroline and I have saved. Barely.
Damon: So, did you call just to brag, or...?

Nora: You reek of blood.
Damon: Well...I've been binging.
Stefan: And I've been judging.

My mother was practically ripped out of my arms and sent to a TB ward. You don't move on from that. You find distractions.

You can take my town, destroy my house, but you will not touch my car.

Stefan: You killed him, didn't you?
Damon: Tyler? No. Jeremy once, but are we really bringing that up right now?

Stefan: If you think this is a crazy plan, now's the time to speak up.
Caroline: Is there any version of this plan where you're not worried about me?
Stefan: Probably not.

Stefan: New rule. You live your life, you heal, and in the meantime, we're friends.
Caroline: I like that rule.

[to Caroline] Yesterday you told me that you made a list of all the ways that loving me has ruined your life, and I get it. I haven't made it easy on you, but I made a list too. Of all the ways that loving you has changed mine. You were by my side when I needed a friend. You made me laugh, you made me dance. You told me that I would find love again, and I understand if you need time to heal and to live your life without me. I understand if I have to wait for you. And I will. I'll wait. And when you're ready for me, I will be ready for you.

Elena: Thank you for bumping into me that day in the hallway. I never thought I would ever be happy again and then I met you. You quite literally saved my life. I love you so much, which is why I can't wait to find out what new life you've chosen for yourself in sixty or seventy years, whenever I see you again.
Stefan: I can guarantee you it won't be high school.
Elena: Just be happy. I'll see you soon.

I don't think Elena necessarily came into my life to be soul mate. I mean, she was. We loved each other, but she was also the only person I've ever met who actually believed that my brother was worth loving. And she reminded me that I used to believe that about him too. Her faith in him, it brought Damon and me back together, and yeah, I loved her, more than I thought I could love somebody else, but I think in the end I needed him more than I needed her.

Elena: People are uncomfortable around Salvatores in tuxes. It stirs...feelings.
Stefan: Uh oh. Elena's human again. Am I sensing another brother swap?

Damon: What do you think I should do?
Stefan: That's the thing, Damon. I can't tell you. Elena can't tell you. You have to want to be human for yourself.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
