Enzo: I'm not here to be one of your children, Lily.
Lily: Then why are you here, Lorenzo? Why did you choose us?
Enzo: There was no 'us' in my choice. I choose you. I'm here because of you.

So Damon screws up, Caroline gets grabbed, and I get to wind up dead? Doesn't it ever feel like we're fighting the wrong enemy?


[to Bonnie] So, about how long do we have before this evil engulfs the world? I'm just trying to plan my week.


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

Alaric: You wouldn't think it's weird that I'm trying to contact my fiance who's been dead for months?
Bonnie: Honestly, after everything we've experienced, it'd be weird if you weren't.

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

Pick a side, Enzo. Us or them.


Bonnie: Do you have any idea how long three seconds are in a life or death situation?
Damon: In the first second, I thought how amazing it would feel to have Elena in my arms again. By second number two, I had kissed her. And by the third, I remembered you're my best friend and that if anything ever happened to you, I would lose my mind. So yes, Bonnie, I do know how long three seconds are.
Bonnie: Just checking...
Damon: I will wait for her. And you're going to help me. You're stuck with me too.

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 hangs up his hero hair for the girl. And here I thought my future was bleak.


Damon: If Stefan says he's got it, he's got it.
Bonnie: Do you really believe that or is that just some excuse to continue your slow crawl towards rock bottom?
Damon: Do you know how many days need to tick by before I see Elena again? Twenty-two thousand, nine hundred and sixty one days, and that's if you get some old person's disease. I have not even begun to approach rock bottom.

Damon: Every time I look at you all I see is NOT Elena.
Bonnie: I'm so sorry this happened, but I lost Elena too, Damon. And you're one of the few reminders I have of her to hold on to so you can either resent me or love me, but you're stuck with me.

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.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
