Damon: Just between us bad guys, has anyone ever earned their way out?
Cade: I wouldn't want to give you false hope.

Bonnie, I've failed you in so many ways as a mother, but I will not let you destroy yourself.

Abby

The clock is ticking on Stefan's life, but, by all means, give Matt a physical.

Damon

I need to borrow a book. Maxwell family tell-all. Guess it's been out of print for a while.

Damon

Caroline: What is all this?
Stefan: That's me.
Caroline: No, this is Cade. He made you do this.

Matt: Everything okay?
Alaric: No, it's bad.

Damon: I'll deal with Stefan.
Bonnie: I already did.
Damon: What do you mean?
Bonnie: He's human now.

Caroline: I feel like Mystic Falls just isn't as safe as it used to be.
Matt: Tell me about it. Is that ancient tupperware?
Caroline: [laughs] Elena, Bonnie and I made our own time capsule when we were eleven. Buried it right under this tree and I cannot believe it is still here.

Stefan: Really?
Bonnie: Oh, let go of me.
Stefan: What do you care what happens to Elena, huh? In a minute you're going to be dead, anyway.
Bonnie: And you are going to be human.

Bonnie: Meet Justin Timberlake, audition for American Idol, be on MTV's Spring Break.
Enzo: High aspirations, indeed.
Bonnie: Okay, don't mock my tweener self.

Damon: Update from the outside world.
Stefan: I don't care.
Damon: I do. I care so much it hurts, but it's a good kind of hurt because my lovely humanity is back on and I'm seeing the world through rose colored glasses.

You're right, little brother. I can forgive you for destroying our hometown because I'm not going to let it happen.

Damon

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.
