Episode: “We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street”
Writers: Charlie Charbonneau & Jose Molina

Damon: “Thought you might have left.” Elena: “I don’t have to be at school for at least…20 minutes ago.”

Elena: “What’s that face?” Damon: “What face?” Elena: “That face.” Damon: “I’m happy.”

Elena: “Listen, Damon. We need to…” Damon: “No, no, no, no. Don’t ruin it.” Elena: You don’t even know what I was gonna say.” Damon: “Well, I’m assuming it starts with ‘what are we’ and then ends with ‘going to tell Stefan.” Elena: He should know. Damon: “I know he should know. Just don’t know when he should know it.”

Elena (to Stefan in front of Damon): “Hey.” Stefan: “Hey.” Elena: “See you in history?”

Damon: ” Sired? Really, Stefan? That is the most pathetic nonsense I’ve ever heard come from your mouth. And you’ve said some crap in your day.”

Damon: “When her body rejects this blood — which it will — your apology better be epic.”

Elena (about Jeremy): “He’s OK.” Caroline: “But are you? I mean, clearly, they don’t have a flat iron at Hotel Salvatore.”

Caroline: “Oh, creepy Professor guy is just Shane now.” Bonnie: “He’s not creepy.” Elena: “We’re not judging.” Caroline: “I am.”

Stefan: “What are you doing?” Damon: “Elena is sired. You were right. I was wrong. Happy?”

Stefan: “What was in New Orleans in 1942?” Damon: “Other than bourbon and beads? Us, Stefan.”

Stefan: “Who’s Valerie La Marche?” Damon: “The witch that I found to help me break Charlotte’s little sire bond. Pack your bags, baby bro. We’re going back to Bourbon Street.”

Elena: “I know that you’re not the biggest fan. But he kind of just changed my life. Would you mind laying off on all the hate?” Bonnie: “OK. New girls’ night rule: no boy talk, yeah?”

Bonnie: “Don’t judge.” Caroline: “OK, fine. I hereby vow not to be judgmental for the rest of the evening…even if you two are potentially ruining your lives as I stand idly by. It’s your choice.” Elena: “I’ll drink to that.”

Stefan: “Well, the city is the same. Just brighter.”

Damon: “Somebody had to entertain the ladies who had been left by their menfolk.”

Damon: “Good news. Elena’s at the house with the girls where she can’t get in trouble. Bad news — I think they got into the Dom.”

Damon: “I get it, Stefan. I get that you’re pissed that Elena dumped you because she has feelings for me. Bet you blame the sire bond for that too.” Stefan: “Yeah. You know what? I absolutely do.” Damon: “Why? Because it’s impossible to think she could have feelings for me?” Stefan: “No, because it’s impossible for her to be so blind that she doesn’t see how wrong you are for her.”

1942 Damon: “You look like a guy I used to know.” 1942 Stefan: “Hello, Damon.”

1942 Damon: “I could handle some war if it meant spending some quality time with my brother.”

Stefan: “Oh I see. I see, that’s Damonspeak for ‘let’s not do the right thing. Let’s just do what’s right for me.'” Damon: “Oh what about you, O selfless one? Are you doing what’s best for Elena or what’s best for you? Because it looks to me like the only reason you want to break Elena’s sire bond is to restore her original factory Team Stefan settings. I’m gonna go get a drink. Hunt me down when you stop being a dick.”

Elena: “Check this out. Vamp speed video.” Elena: “I look like Superman.”

Elena: “Being a vampire is so weird. Oh my God, I love this bathtub. Why don’t we come out and hang here more often?”

Elena: “I know you two have issues with him [Damon] but I’m happy. And I wanted to spend tonight with my best friends so I could tell them about it.”

Nandi: “Can I help you gentlemen?” Damon: “Hi. Looking for a witch. Sorry, no time for pleasantries.”

1942 Val: “Money won’t cut it here, pretty one.”

Stefan: “Did you kill those 12 people in 1942? Damon: “Absolutely, I did. And I’d do it again in a heartbeat if it meant a clean slate with Elena. Now are you gonna help me good cop/bad cop this witch or not?”

Tyler: “The bond affects how you act. Not how you feel.”

Nandi: “The bond can’t be broken with magic. A vampire only bonds to her sire when she has feelings for him before she turns…human feelings. Vampirism only heightens those emotions. You want her free? You have to set her free. Tell her to live her life without you. And never think of you again. And to stop caring about you. And then leave her. That’s the only way around the sire bond.”

Damon: “You don’t think that I’m going to be able to do what I need to when I tell Elena to stay away from me.” Stefan: “Well, I mean selflessness isn’t exactly one of your most obvious character traits, Damon.” Damon: “Yeah, well, one of these days, you’re gonna realize you don’t know me half as well as you think.”

Stefan: “I didn’t know about that.” Damon: “Yeah, well, next time I’ll hang a billboard.”
Caroline (to Elena): “Hey, if you don’t start hugging me back this is gonna get really awkward really fast.” Elena: “You’ve got my hands pinned down.” Caroline: “Oh.”

Damon: “You know what would make me happy? To know that this entire time that I’ve been completely in love with you, that what you actually felt for me was real.” Elena: “It is real. I know that it is.”

Elena: “Damon, I know what you’re about to do. Please don’t do this to me.” Damon: “I don’t want to do this, Elena. I’m not the good guy, remember? I’m the selfish one. I take what I want. I do what I want. I lie to my brother. I fall in love with his girl. I don’t do the right thing. But I have to do the right thing by you.” Elena: “Does this feel wrong? Does this feel wrong?”

The Vampire Diaries airs on Thursdays at 8/7c on the CW.
