Jeremy: I can't leave now, no way. Not with the sheriff sick and Enzo on a rampage. It's not the right time.
Elena: No kidding because the right time was a couple of eyars ago. Enzo could have killed you today and the other day Liv threw you across a room. And let's not forget the time that you actually died.
Alaric: She's right. Time to get the hell out of here.
Elena: You deserve a normal life, Jer. You deserve the life of a kid whose only baggage is that he lost his parents.

Caroline: Why are you here?
Stefan: Because you're my friend. Because I know what it feels like to lose a mother. And because when you told me you hated me, it was pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time.
Caroline: I think we both know I never really hated you.

Stefan: So, I realize it doesn't matter.
Caroline: What doesn't matter?
Stefan: It doesn't matter what book your mom reads in her final precious moments. It doesn't matter if it's good or if it's terrible. It doesn't matter because life isn't about your final moments. It's about the moments that led up to them.

Elena: Our lives are so weird.
Jeremy: That's the understatement of the century.

[to Liz] Not to be blunt, but I think dying gets you a ticket out of work. Just sayin'.

Damon

Damon: Look who graduated!
Jeremy: He was fine with it?
Damon: I mean, you're practicaly flunking, missed 100 days of school, and you can barely spell the word "cat," but sure. He was fine with it.

I'm not gonna calm down. I would've done anything for you. And you chose death over me.

Tyler [to Liv]

Just get out of here, don't look back.

Elena [to Tyler]

So was Kai right about me? By turning into a vampire, I completely changed?

Elena

I'm annoyed. I'm going through a highly emotional situation right now and you're just sitting there mocking me.

Caroline [to Stefan]

If I can get through to her we save Bonnie's life. If not? At least I'll be with her when she dies.

Jeremy

Stefan: I'm not big on digging. Callouses.
Caroline: You bury corpses all the time!
Stefan: Yeah, but I don't dig them up.

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.
