  • “Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you not being the dumbest brother on Earth?”
  • “Hello, Meredith.” “What are you doing here?” “I’m Elena’s guardian. I thought it was strange I didn’t get a phone call.”
  • “It’s funny, the people in this town are actually good at their jobs when you allow them to be.”
  • “Now what can I get you? Do you want some tea? Maybe some vodka? Both will help you sleep.”
  • “I’m thinking…maybe tea with vodka.”
  • “Elijah.” “Hello, again.”
  • “I give you my word, Elena. I will not revive Klaus within yours, nor even within your children’s lifetimes. Perhaps it’ll finally teach him some manners.”
  • “Elena, I leave it to you to make the decision whether to trust me or not.” “Not! Hello! Did that concussion give you brain damage? His lunatic siblings will kill you the first chance they get.”
  • “Do we have a deal?” “No! No. No. No. No. Did I mention, no?”
  • “Why do you want Klaus’ body?” “He’s my brother. We remain together.” “We have a deal.”
  • “Stefan and Damon are going to do whatever it takes to protect themselves. But this is our lives. So let me protect you.” “I will go anywhere with you. If we have to spend the rest of our lives running, I will run with you. But first…I have to help our friends.”
  • “We’ve got to travel light, so what do you need?” “Ah, just you. Maybe a curling iron.”
  • “I’m not halfway out of Virginia and Elena sells our souls to the Originals?” “It’s her call.” “You know what else is her call? Everything bad ever.”
  • “I was going to use Unit 666 but I figured that would be a little obvious.”
  • “1020. Mini fridge, a couple bird cages, box full of Playboys…one beef jerkified Original.”
  • “Whoa. Creepy.”
  • “I need a minute.” “Just jam the witch locator…bat signal…whatever and get on with it, Bonnie.” “Elena and Jeremy lost Jenna and Alaric because of him…Tyler’s a hybrid…my mother’s a vampire…could you give me a minute to just appreciate the sight of him like this?”
  • “You should burn in hell but if you die so do my friends. So does my mother. What am I supposed to do about that?”
  • “What would you have done, Damon?” “Grabbed her, gagged her, threw her in a well — I don’t know. Anything other than let her trust Elijah!” “You know she’d just hate you for it, right?” “Yeah, but she’d be alive and she’d hate me. Thus the eternal difference between you and me, brother.”
  • “Got to go. The Original Sister’s here.”
  • “It’s about time, Sexy Bex.”

  • “How did you find me?” “Well, you would be amazed at how competent law enforcement is when it’s not corrupted by vampires. Now, where is Klaus?” “Storage locker. There’s only about a thousand of ’em. Have at it.”
  • “After the accident, I kind of felt like I didn’t know how to live anymore. Like I didn’t want to. But then being with Stefan, somehow I figured it out. And that’s what love should be. You should love the person that makes you glad that you’re alive.” “So then what’s the problem?” “The problem’s Damon. When I’m with him, it just consumes me.”
  • “Damon.” “Bad news, brother.”
  • “Call me if you cough up a lung.”
  • “Damon’s not with them.” “What?” “He’s a hundred miles out of town. I can keep driving to him or I can turn around and go back to Stefan. It’s your choice.”
  • “Matt’s taking me home.” “To Stefan.” “Not just Stefan, Damon…to Tyler, to Caroline…” “No, Elena, I get it.”

  • “If it was just down to him and me and you had to make a choice — who got the goodbye — who would it be?” “I love him, Damon. He came into my life when I needed someone and I fell for him instantly and no matter what I feel for you, I never un-fell for him.” “Yeah, I get it. Stefan…it’s always going to be Stefan.” “I can’t think about ‘always.’ All I can think about is right now. And I care about you, Damon. Which is why I have to let you go. I mean, maybe if you and I had met first…” “Maybe…” “You’re going to be fine, you hear me? You’re going to be OK and I’m going to see you soon.” “Real soon. Goodbye, Elena.”
  • “You’re going to be fine, Caroline.” “It’s not me that I’m worried about.” “There’s no point. I’m a lost cause. But you’re strong. And you have a beautiful future ahead of you.”
  • “The spirits won’t be happy with you.” “Spirits don’t get to tell me what to do anymore. I’m done getting pushed around by all of you. I did it because I wanted to.”
  • “You’re kind of invincible, Ric.” “Don’t call me that. We’re not friends.” “We were.” “Well, our friendship was part of the problem. It’s what kept me weak. It’s also why it took so long for the real me to break through. And now I’m going to break you.”
  • “Katherine…” “Um…no…I…I’m Elena.” “Oh, you…you just look…I’m sorry. You just really remind me of someone. I’m Damon.”
  • “It’s Mystic Falls. Nothing bad ever happens here.”
  • “You want what everybody wants…” “What, mysterious stranger who has all the answers?”
  • “So, Damon. Tell me. What is it that I want?” “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, right now, I want you to forget that this happened. I can’t have people knowing that I’m in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.”
  • “Ric! Ric! You’re not dead. You are not dead!”
  • “I just want you to know that I will always be here to look after you, Jeremy. And you’ll never be alone, OK? I promise.” “I don’t understand. Oh, my God. You’re a ghost.”

The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 4 this fall on the CW.
