Quotes[edit | edit source]
- Stefan Salvatore: During the Dark Ages, when a vampire's actions threatened to expose or bring harm upon the entire race, he would face judgment. They sought to reeducate them rather than to punish them.
- Damon Salvatore: You know what will happen if I don't feed on blood.
- Stefan Salvatore: You'll grow weaker and weaker, and eventually you won't be able to move or speak. In a week, your skin will desiccate, and you'll mummify. A living corpse, unable to hurt anyone...ever.
- Damon Salvatore: So what, you just going to just leave me in the basement...forever?
- Stefan Salvatore: I've injected you with enough vervain to keep you weak. Once your circulation stops, I'll move you to the family crypt, and in a 150 years we can reevaluate.
- Damon Salvatore: Let me out of here, please.
- Caroline Forbes: You bit me!
- Damon Salvatore: You liked it. Remember?
- Caroline Forbes: Why do I keep remembering the same things...but in different ways?
- Damon Salvatore: You remember what I want you to remember. And now that the vervain has passed out of your system, you won't remember what you're about to do.
- Caroline Forbes: What am I about to do?
- Damon Salvatore: You're gonna open the door. You're gonna open the door!
- Elena Gilbert: Dear Diary, I'm not a believer. People are born, they grow old and then they die. That's the world we live in. There's no magic, no mysticism, no immortality. There is nothing that defies rational thought. People are supposed to be who they say they are and not lie or hide their true selves. It's not possible. I'm not a believer. I can't be. But how can I deny what's right in front of me? Someone who never grows old. Never gets hurt. Someone who changes in ways that can't be explained. Girls bitten. Bodies drained of blood.
- Stefan Salvatore: If you're going to dump me, I figure you should at least know who you're dumping. Let's start with Katherine. She had this perfect olive skin. She had this perfect laugh. She was also impatient, impulsive. Enter Damon. He claims he was with her first. I don't know. I do know I did some things I'm not proud of. My biggest regret is not being able to make things right before she died. I miss her, but I'm not crippled.
