Season 5 Episode 1: “I’ll Remember”
Writer: Caroline Dries

This is odd. It’s an episode of The Vampire Diaries and there’s only one favorite quote from Damon. Of course, he was only in one scene. There are a few Hallucination!Damon quotes included though. What were some of your favorite quotes from the season 6 premiere?

Elena: “You know, this will never not be weird.”
Alaric: “What? That some ancient witch turned me into a vampire or that four months ago I rose from the dead?”
Elena: “That you’re my college professor.”

Elena (narration): “I will say he [Matt] has never been better. I think he can bench press more than Jeremy now which is beyond freaky. Speaking of Jeremy (kissing a girl on the couch)…actually, let’s not talk about my brother.”

Caroline: “I am home. I just signed a lease to my new apartment.”
Elena: “On the border of a town that doesn’t want you. That’s not home. That’s sad.”

Elena: “Caroline, I’m picking you up at your house at 6pm sharp tomorrow. OK? Bring your school spirit. Bye.”

Elena: “Anyways, that was my day. How was yours?”
Hallucination!Damon: “Can we go back to the part where Ric came back to life to be a college professor.”

Jeremy: “No more magic means I’m not a hunter anymore.”
Matt: “Yeah, you’re right, Jer. You’re not much of anything anymore.”

Elena (to Luke): “I need to see Damon, Luke. And I am not asking.”

Elena: “How long do you think it takes after somebody comes back to life before they can start dating again.”
Hallucination!Damon: “Well, the fact that you can say that with a straight face is one more reason that I love you.”
Elena: “So, like, three months?”
Hallucination!Damon: “Can I ask why there’s not a Bennett witch in the back? I mean, can’t Luke whip up a batch of herbs in Bonnie flavor?”
Elena: “You know, if I had to drive around with everyone that I’ve lost, I’d need a school bus.”

Elena: “Can we not talk about this?”
Hallucination!Damon: “About what? The fact that I’m dead? ‘Cause I am.”
Elena: “Technically you were dead when we met.”
Hallucination!Damon: “Good point. Now I’m just gone.”
Elena: “Damon, please don’t say that.”
Hallucination!Damon: “And this conversation is pretty much the smart level-headed you talking to the impossible drug addict you, which is clear evidence of your insanity.”

Alaric: “As the only sober person here, trust me, when I tell you this. That girl, is so not into you. Thanks for the beer.”

Elena: “I tried to grieve him, Caroline. Trust me, I know grief. I’ve got grieving down to a science at this point. And I tried. But every time…I let it sink in I’m never gonna see him again, I feel like I’m gonna die.”
Caroline: “Look, hon, I get it, okay? I do. There are better ways to get through this.”
Elena: “Like what? Like dropping out of school and having picnics with my mom near the town border? Or maybe I can pull a Stefan and just bounce from country to country chasing some false hope that we’re gonna find a way to bring Damon and Bonnie back. We’re all getting through it. This is me getting through it, okay?”
Caroline: “But you’re not getting through it, Elena. You’re just pressing pause.”

Elena: “How do you wake up in the morning? How do you go about your day without falling apart? Tell me what you’re doing to get through this because I’m clearly doing it wrong.”
Stefan: “There’s no right or wrong way, Elena.”
Elena: “No, there’s only forever. That’s why I need you to give me hope. Because I don’t think I can live forever without him.”

Sarah: “Why the hell should I trust you?”
Matt: “Because I’ve been attacked like that more times than I can count. I’ve had my throat ripped open. My neck snapped. My hand smashed. I’ve drowned. I’ve died and come back to life. And I’ve lost what little family I had. And I refuse to lose anyone else. I want to protect people like you. Like us.”
Sarah: “That’s uh…quite a story but um, thing is, I don’t trust anyone. Ever.”
Caroline: “That’s probably wise.”

Hallucination!Damon: “One call from my brother and you want to throw all of this away?”
Elena: “I never got to say thank you.”
Hallucination!Damon: “For what?”
Elena: “For saving Stefan. And…bringing back Alaric and Tyler. Thank you.”
Hallucination!Damon: “Elena…”
Elena: “No, I’m not done yet. I want to thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love that consumed me. And passion. Adventure. There’s ntohing more I could ever want other than for it to last forever. But…it can’t. This is the last time I’m gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon. I love you. I have to let you go.”

Elena: “If I’m ever gonna be able to fall in love again, and make eternity bearable, I need you to do something.”
Alaric: “What?”
Elena: “You were created by the Original vampire spell which means you can compel other vampires. And since I can’t take away my vampirism, I want you to take away Damon. I want you to compel me to forget that I ever loved him.”

Bonnie: “Every day I tell you I hate that.”
Damon: “And every day, I do it anyway. Bon appetit.”

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