The following is a list of quotes from the first season The Vampire Diaries.

Pilot [1.01][edit]

Stefan: For over a century, I have lived in secret. Hiding in the shadows. Alone in the world. Until now. I'm a vampire, and this is my story.

Bonnie: Hold up, who's this?
Elena: All I see is back.
Bonnie: It's a hot back! I'm sensing Seattle and he plays a guitar.
Elena: You're really going to run this whole psychic thing into the ground, huh?
Bonnie: Pretty much.
Elena: (about Matt) He hates me.
Bonnie: That's not hate. That's, "You dumped me but I'm too cool to show it, but secretly I'm listening to Air Supply's greatest hits."

Elena: People are going to stop giving you breaks, Jeremy. They just don't care any more. They don't remember that our parents are dead; they have their own lives to deal with. The rest of the world has moved on. You should try, too.
Jeremy: I've seen you in the cemetery writing in your diary. Is that... is that supposed to be you moving on?

Caroline: His name is Stefan Salvatore. He lives with his uncle up at the old Salvatore boarding house. He hasn't lived here since he was a kid. Military family, so they moved around a lot. He's a Gemini and his favorite color is blue.
Bonnie: You got all that in one day?
Caroline: Please. I got all that between third and fourth period. We're planning a June wedding.

Stefan: I know it's late, but I needed to know if you're okay.
Elena: You know, for months, that's all everyone's wondered about me, if I'll be OK.
Stefan: What do you tell them?
Elena: That I'll be fine.
Stefan: Do you ever mean it?
Elena: Ask me tomorrow. (Stefan stares at her) It's warmer in the house, we can talk. Would you like to come in?
Stefan: (smiles) Yes.

Zach: You promised. (shows him the newspaper with the news of the attack)
Stefan: This was an animal attack.
Zach: Don't give me that. I know the game - you tear them up enough and they always suspect an animal attack. You said you had it under control.
Stefan: And I do.
Zach: Please, Uncle Stefan. Mystic Falls is a different place now. It's been quiet for years, but there are people who still remember. And you being here, it's just going to stir things up.
Stefan: It's not my intention.
Zach: Then what is? Why did you come back after all this time? Why now?
Stefan: I don't have to explain myself.
Zach: I know that you can't change who you are, but you don't belong here anymore.
Stefan: Where do I belong?
Zach: I can't tell you what to do. But coming back here was a mistake.

Damon: Your hair's different; I like it.
Stefan: It's been 15 years, Damon.
Damon: Thank God! Couldn't take another day of the 90's. That horrible grunge look did not suit you. Remember Stefan, it's important to stay away from fads.
Stefan: What are you doing here?
Damon: I missed my little brother.
Stefan: You hate small towns; they're boring, there's nothing for you to do.
Damon: I've been keeping myself busy.
Stefan: You left that girl alive tonight. That was very careless of you.
Damon: Yeah, that could be a problem... for you.

Damon: Is it working? Being in her world? Does it make you feel alive?

Damon: I was impressed. I'll give it a six. Missing style, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very good with the whole face thing, it was good.
Stefan: It's all fun and games, huh, Damon? But wherever you go, people die.
Damon: That's a given.
Stefan: Not here, I won't allow it.
Damon: I take that as an invitation.
Stefan: Damon, please, after all these years, can't we just give it a rest?
Damon: I promised you an eternity of misery, so I'm just keeping my word.

Stefan: Stay away from Elena.
Damon: I take that as an invitation.

Stefan's journal:
I shouldn't have come home. I know the risk. But I had no choice. I have to know her.

I lost control today. Everything I've kept buried inside came rushing to the surface. I'm simply not able to resist her.

I had a plan. I wanted to change who I was, create a life as someone new, someone without the past. Someone alive.

They follow you. You can't escape them - as much as you want to.
Elena's diary:
Dear Diary, Today will be different. It has to be. I will smile, and it will be believable. My smile will say, "I'm fine, thank you. Yes, I feel much better." I will no longer be the sad little girl that lost her parents. I will start fresh, be someone new. It's the only way I'll make it through.

Dear Diary, I made it through the day. I must have said "I'm fine, thanks" at least 37 times. And I didn't mean it once. But no one noticed. When someone asks "How are you?", they really don't want an answer.

Dear Diary, I couldn't have been more wrong. I thought that I could smile and nod my way through it, pretend like it would all be okay.

Without the pain. Someone alive. But it's not that easy. Bad things stay with you.

All you can do is be ready for the good, so when it comes, you invite it in. Because you need it. I need it.

The Night of the Comet [1.02][edit]

Bonnie: I was talking to Grams, and she said that the comet is a sign of impending doom. The last time it pasted over Mystic Falls there was lots of death, so much blood and carnage it created a bed of paranormal activity.
Caroline: Yeah, then you poured Grams another shot and she told you about the aliens.


Elena: We never got to the texting part.
Bonnie That's an important part in any relationship.

Jenna: Eat anyway. It's a ruse. I wanna talk.

Damon: Were you successful? Did the powers of persuasion work? Remember if you don’t feed properly, none of those little tricks work right.
Stefan: How long was Elena here?
Damon: Are you worried, Stefan? Scared we may be doomed to repeat the past? Isn’t that why you play your little game ‘I’m a high school human’?
Stefan: I’m not playing any game.
Damon: Of course you are. We both know the closest you’ll ever get to humanity is when you rip it open and feed on it.

Damon: You must be Elena? I'm Damon Stefan's brother.
Elena: He didn't tell me he had a brother.
Damon: Stefan's not the one to brag. Please, come. I'm sure Stefan will be along in any second.

Elena: He (Damon) told me about your ex, Katherine?
Stefan: What did he say?
Elena: She broke your heart.
Stefan: It was a long time ago.
Elena: When you lose someone, it stays with you. Always reminding you of how easy it is to get hurt.
Stefan: Elena…
Elena : It's okay, Stefan. I get it. You have no idea how much I get it. Complicated brother? Check. Complicated Ex? Check. Too complicated to even contemplate dating? Double check. It's okay. We met and we talked and it was epic, but then the sun came up and reality set in.

Vicki: I know you.
Damon: Well, that's unfortunate.

Damon: You have two choices. You can feed and make her forget. Or you can let her run screaming vampire through the town square.
Stefan: That's what this is about? You wanna expose me?
Damon: No! I want you to remember who you are!
Stefan: Why? So what, so I'll feed, so I'll kill, so I'll remember what it's like to be brothers again? You know what, let her go. Let her tell everyone that vampires have returned to Mystic Falls, let them chain me up and let them drive a stake through my heart, 'cause then at least I'll be free of you.

Damon: It's good to be home. I think I might stay awhile, this town could use a bit of a wake up call, don't you think?
Stefan: What are you up to, Damon?
Damon: That's for me to know and to you to... dot, dot, dot.

Elena: So the thing is, I got home tonight planning on doing what I always do. Write in my diary, like I have been since my mother gave me one when I was 10. It's where I get everything out and it all goes in this one little book, that I hide on the 2nd shelf behind this really hideous ceramic mermaid. But then I realized I would just be writing things I should probably be talking about.
Stefan: What would you write?
Elena: I would write, Dear Diary, Today I convinced myself it's okay to give up. Don't take risks. Stick with the status quo, no drama. Now just isn't the time. But my reasons aren't reasons they're excuses. All I'm doing is hiding from the truth and the truth is, I'm scared Stefan. I'm scared that if I let myself be happy for one moment, that the my worlds going to come crashing down and I don't know if I'll be able to survive that.
Stefan: Do you want to know what I would write? I met a girl, we talked and it was epic. Then the sun came up and reality set in. Well, this is reality... right here. <3

Friday Night Bites [1.03][edit]

Elena: That throw was insane! I didn't know you play football.
Stefan: I used to. It was a long time ago.
Elena: So why don't you try out for the team?
Stefan: Yeah, I don't think so.
Elena: So you don't like football?
Stefan: No, I love football; I think it's a great sport. But in this case I don't think football likes me. You saw Tyler over there, and we both know how Matt feels.
Elena: They don't know you. To them you're just mysterious loner guy. Wouldn't hurt to be a part of the team, make some friends.
Stefan: Says the girl who spends her alone-time writing in a cemetery.
Elena: Hey, come on, there's more to me than just gloomy graveyard girl. There's a whole other Elena you have yet to meet. She was into everything, very busy.
Stefan: Well I look forward to meeting her, and when will that be?
Elena: Soon. She's working on it.

Bonnie: Fine. Well, how about this. Today, I’m obsessed with numbers. Three numbers. I keep seeing 8, 14, and 22. How weird is that?
Elena: Maybe we should play the lottery?

Damon (about Stefan): That's what I always tell him - you have to engage. You can't just sit there and wait for life to come to you, you have to go get it.
Caroline: Yeah, Elena wasn't so lucky today. (to Elena) It's only because you missed summer camp. God, I don't know how you're ever gonna learn the routines...
Bonnie: I'll work with her. She'll get it.
Caroline (to herself): I guess we can put her in the back...
Damon: You know, you don't-- you don't seem like the 'cheerleader type', Elena.
Caroline: Oh, it's just 'cause her parents died. Yeah, I mean, she's just totally going through a 'blah' phase. (chuckling to herself) She used to be way more fun... And...I say that with complete sensitivity.
Damon: I'm sorry, Elena. I know what it's like to lose both your parents. In fact, Stefan and I have watched almost every single person we've ever cared about die.
Stefan: We don't need to get into that right now, Damon.
Damon: Ah, you know what? You're right, Stef. I'm sorry, I-- the last thing I wanted to do was bring her up...

Damon: (holds up an empty glass) One more.
Elena: Oh, thank you. (gasps when she accidentally drops the glass)
Damon: (miraculously catches the glass before it hits the floor; presents it to Elena)
Elena: (laughs) Nice save.
Damon: I like you - you know how to laugh. And you make Stefan smile, which is something I haven't seen in a very long time.
Elena: Earlier, did you mean...Katherine?
Damon: Mm-hmm.
Elena: How did she die?
Damon: In a fire - a tragic fire.
Elena: Recently?
Damon: It seems like it was yesterday.
Elena: What was she like?
Damon: She was beautiful - a lot like you in that department. She was also very complicated, and selfish, and at times not very kind, but very sexy and seductive.
Elena: So, which one of you dated her first? (passes Damon a plate)
Damon: (chuckles) Nicely deduced. Ask Stefan - I'm sure his answer differs from mine. (closes dishwasher)
Elena: (exhales)
Damon: I'd quit cheerleading if I were you.
Elena: Why do you say that?
Damon: Oh, I saw you at practice. You looked miserable.
Elena: You saw that?
Damon: Am I wrong?
Elena: (sighs) I used to love it. It was fun. Things are different this year - everything that used to matter doesn't anymore.
Damon: So don't let it. Quit, move on. Problem solved. Ta-da...
Elena: (chuckles) Some things could matter again.
Damon: Maybe. But...seems a little unrealistic to me.
(brief pause)
Elena: I'm sorry.
Damon: (looks confused)
Elena: About Katherine. You lost her, too.
(for once, Damon is speechless)

Stefan: They are people, Damon. She's not a puppet - she doesn't exist for your amusement; for you to feed on whenever you want to.
Damon: Sure she does. They all do. They're whatever I want them to be. They're mine for the taking.
Stefan: All right, you've had your fun. You used Caroline, you got to me and Elena. Good for you. Now it's time for you to go.
Damon: That's not a problem. Because...I've been invited in. And I'll come back tomorrow night, and the following night, and I'll do, with your little cheerleader, whatever I want to do. Because that is what is normal to me.

Elena:You scared me! What are you doing in here?
Damon:I'm hiding from Caroline.
Elena:And why is that?
Damon:I need a break.She talks more than I can listen.
Elena:That can be a sign.
Damon:Plus she's awfully young.
Elena:Not much younger than you are.
Damon:I can't see going anywhere in a bigger picture.I think she drives me crazy.
Elena:Caroline does have some really anoying traits but we've been friends since the first grade and that means something to me.
Damon:I'm sorry if I'm making you uncomfortable. It's just not my intention.
Elena:Yes, it is.Otherwise you wouldn't put alternative meaning behind everything you say.
Damon:You're right. I do have other intentions but so do you.
Damon:Mhm.I see them.You want me.
Elena:Excuse me?
Damon:I get to you.You find yourself drawn to me.You think about me when you don't want to think about me. I bet you even dreamed about me. And right now you want to kiss me.
Elena(slaps him):What the hell?I don't know what kind of game you're trying to play with Stefan here, but I don't want to be part of it. And I don't know what happened in the past, but let's get one thing straight - I am not Katherine!

Matt Donovan: This week at practice I was a dick.
Stefan: You had your reasons.
Matt Donovan: No excuse. Good luck, we're lucky to have you.
(Matt and Stefan shake hands and Matt walks away)
Damon: (gives Stefan a slow clap) Isn't that nice? Stefan joins the team, makes a friend. It's all so Rah-Rah, go team! Yeah!
Stefan: Not tonight. I'm done with you.
Damon: Nice trick with Elena. Let me guess, vervain in the necklace? I admit I was a bit surprised; it's been a while since anyone has been able to resist my compulsion. Where'd you get it?
Stefan: Does it matter?
Damon: Guess I could seduce her the old fashioned way. Or I could her.
Stefan: No, you're not going to hurt her, Damon.
Damon: No?
Stefan: Because deep down inside there is a part of you that feels for her. I was worried that you had no humanity left inside you, that you had actually become that monster you pretend to be.
Damon: Who's pretending?
Stefan: Then kill me.
Damon: Well, I'm tempted.
Stefan: No, you're not. You've had lifetimes to do it and yet, here I am. I'm still alive and there you are. You're still haunting me after 145 years. Katherine is dead and you hate me because you loved her and you torture me because you still do. And that, my brother, is your humanity.

Family Ties [1.04][edit]

Damon: I just wanna let you know - they caught the culprit. The animal responsible for killing coach Tanner and all those people.
Stefan: What are you talking about?
Damon: It was a mountain lion. (makes gesture) A really big one. It attacked a hunter this morning - it’s all over the news. 'Deadly beast captured. All is well in Mystic Falls.'

Damon: What's so special about this Bella girl, anyway? Edward's so whipped.
Caroline: You have to read the first book first, otherwise it won't make sense.
Damon: Ugh, I miss Ann Rice - she was so on it.
Caroline: Hey, how come you don't sparkle?
Damon: Because I live in the real world where vampires burn in the sun.
Caroline: Yeah, but you go in the sun.
Damon: I have a ring, it protects me. Long story.
Caroline: Are these bites going to turn me into a vampire?
Damon: It’s more complicated than that. You have to feed on my blood, then die, then feed on a human - it’s a whole ordeal. This book, by the way, has it all wrong.

Stefan: Can’t touch her now.
Damon: Well, the vervain keeps me out of her head. Maybe that’s not my target. Believe it or not, Stefan, some girls don’t need my persuasion. Some girls just can’t resist my good looks, my style, my charm... and my unflinching ability to listen to Taylor Swift. (stabs Stefan in the stomach)

Damon: This is John Varvatos, dude. Dick move.

Damon: I like being the eternal stud.
Stefan: Yes, being a one hundred and fifty year old teenager has been the height of my happiness.

Damon: I'm not some drunk sorority chick. You can't roofie me.

Damon: I'm going to have to go to the party upset. Who knows what I'll do?

Stefan (narrating): The real animal is still out there. Waiting for me, challenging me to fight back to stop him. But how do I stop the monster without becoming one myself?

Logan: I know you. You have a lot more insults in you, I can tell.
Jenna: Your hairline’s receding.
Logan: No, it’s not. You wanna have lunch?
Jenna: Nope.
Logan: You haven’t changed a bit.
Jenna: Oh, yes I have. I’m meaner now.

Caroline: (looks at Stefan and Elena) They look so cute together.
Damon: Don’t talk, please.

Elena: Look, you’re the mystery guy and I like that. But with mystery comes secrets...and this thing with Katherine…
Stefan: You know, let it go. I don’t wanna talk about it.
Elena: Well, then say something about yourself. Anything. Otherwise, I’m left with nothing but what other people tell me.

Stefan: Look, there are things that you don’t know, okay? Things that I want to tell you but I can’t, and I may never be able to...and I just need you to trust me.
Elena: Trust is earned - I can’t just magically hand it over.

Stefan (narrating): I did what I had to protect protect everyone. Yes, Damon, the headline reads: “Deadly beast captured. All is well in Mystic Falls.”

You're Undead To Me [1.05][edit]

Elena: Jenna, are you aware of what’s going on upstairs?
Jenna: Uh huh…
Elena: have no objection?
Jenna: He could be craftier about it. At least make an effort to sneak her in and out.

Jenna: Have you called him?
Elena: Nope, not going to either.
Jenna: And you’re okay with everything?
Elena: No, I’m not okay with any of it. I’m not gonna cry about it either. You know, I was going to write in my diary this morning and then I thought, what am I going to write? Honestly, I’m not gonna be one of those pathetic girls whose world stops spinning because of some guy.

Zach: You appear unannounced, reminding me that this isn’t my house, that you’re just permitting me to live here. Hell, that you’re permitting me to live.
Damon: Someone had to mow the lawn.

Elena: I think there’s something that he doesn’t want me to know, which...makes me wanna know all the more.
Matt: Like what? Like that he’s a serial killer and he keeps a clown suit in his trunk?

Stefan: Talk to who? I'm so sorry that I'm late.
Elena: What happened?
Stefan: I got held up.
Elena: Is everything okay?
Stefan: There’s this thing with my uncle.
Elena: And you couldn't call and tell me you’re going to be an hour late?
Stefan: I’m really sorry. It was unavoidable.
Elena: What was unavoidable? (Stefan looks down) Okay.
Stefan: No. Er. Elena, please.
Elena: No, Stefan, don't you get it? Every question gets a vague non-answer. What is so awful that you're afraid to tell me?

Stefan Hey, can I take you home? And, and we can talk about all this. Is that okay?
Elena: Wait, what was that?
Stefan: I, I dunno. Nothing.
Elena: Right. Nothing. Okay, I gotta go, Stefan.

Stefan: (to Elena) You wanna know me, right? Well, I figure if you’re gonna dump me, you should at least...uhmm...know who you’re dumping.
Stefan: I do know that I did some things that..I’m not proud of. And my biggest not being able to make it right before she died.
Stefan: You know what? I even like that one Miley song. Easy…
Elena: I didn’t say anything.
Elena: Uhmm...I think that my paranoia has turned into full blown hallucinations.
Stefan: Part of your charm.

Logan: (to Elena) Hi...Elena, right? I think I met you once when you were nine.
Jenna: Your emotional maturity level when we were together.
Logan: Ouch! And here I thought we’re making progress.
Logan: Wait. One condition. Dinner, tonight, your house.
Jenna: Fine, but you’re eating leftovers.
Logan: Oooh…

Matt: (to Stefan) Hey...I’m not saying this for you, I’m saying it for her. But she’s big on trust. So, whatever you’re holding back from her, the more you try to hide it, the more she won’t stop ’til she figures it out.

Sheriff Forbes: Honey, are you okay? Anything you wanna talk about? Is it a boy thing?
Caroline: Mom, if I wanna talk boys, I’ll call dad. At least he’s successfully dating one.

Elena: 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. 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...

Elena: (to Stefan) What are you?

Lost Girls [1.06][edit]

FLASHBACK Mystic Falls, Virginia, 1864. Stefan waiting on the doorstep. A carriage arrives. Katherine goes down. STEFAN: You must be Miss Pierce. KATHERINE: Please, call me Katherine. [Salvatore's House. Stefan and Elena.] ELENA: What are you? What are you? STEFAN: You know. ELENA: No, I don't. STEFAN: Yes, you do, or you wouldn't be here. ELENA: It's not possible. It can't be. STEFAN: Everything you know... And every believe that you have is about to change. Are you ready for that? ELENA: What are you? STEFAN: I'm a vampire. ELENA: I shouldn't have come. STEFAN: No. Please. ELENA: No. No. How did you do that? STEFAN: Please don't be afraid of me. ELENA: Let me go. STEFAN: No. Elena, there's things that you have to know and understand. ELENA: Let me go! STEFAN: Elena, please. [Elena's house.] STEFAN: Elena. I would never hurt you. You're safe with me. ELENA: All those animal attacks, those people who died-- STEFAN: No. That was damon. ELENA: Damon? STEFAN: Yes. I don't drink human blood. That's not how I choose to survive, but Damon does. I'll explain everything to you, but I beg you, Elena, do not tell anybody. ELENA: How can you ask me that? STEFAN: Because you knowing this is dangerous for so many reasons. You can hate me, but I need you to trust me. ELENA: Just go. Just go, please. Go. If you mean me no harm, then just go. STEFAN: I never wanted this. ELENA: Mmm. [At the cemetery, Damon burns the boodies.] Cell phone rings. STEFAN: Hello. DAMON: I want my ring. STEFAN: Where are you? DAMON: I'm at the sizzler. I had the buffet. Where's my ring? STEFAN: I don't have it. Where are you? What have you done? DAMON: No, what have you done? You're the one that locked me in the basement and starved me, so whatever I've done, whoever i've sucked dry is on you, buddy. STEFAN: You're being careless. How many more animal attacks is this town gonna believe, huh? DAMON: I know how to cover my tracks, stefan. Where's my ring? STEFAN: I gave it to Zach to hide. Probably shouldn't have killed him. DAMON: Ah, you almost got me. Where is it? STEFAN: I'll get it back, but I need time. DAMON: What, did you fedex it to Rome? Where is it? I want my ring, Stefan, or my next stop's Elena's. STEFAN: I already want you dead. Don't give me another reason to make it happen. DAMON: Don't give me another reason to rip you apart. STEFAN: Yeah? Is that gonna be before or after you get your ring back? DAMON: Just get it. [Coffee place. Elena joined Stefan.] ELENA: You just don't wanna die, do you? You said you would explain everything. That's why I asked you to meet me here. When you google "vampire," you get a world of fiction. What's the reality? STEFAN: I can tell you whatever you wanna know. ELENA: I know you eat garlic. STEFAN: Yes. ELENA: And somehow, sunlight's not an issue. WOMEN: Here's your drinks. ELENA: Thank you. STEFAN: We have rings that protect us. ELENA: Crucifixes? STEFAN: Decorative. ELENA: Holy water? STEFAN: Drinkable. ELENA: Mirrors? STEFAN: Myth. ELENA: You said you don't kill to survive. STEFAN: Animal blood keeps me alive, but not as strong as Damon. It can be very powerful. ELENA: And yet you let him get involved with Caroline? STEFAN: Forcing Damon not to do something is much more dangerous, believe me. ELENA: He was hurting her. STEFAN: He was feeding on her. He was able to take away her memories of being bitten using a form of mind compulsion. She never knew what was happening to her. If he wanted to kill her, he would have. ELENA: Is that supposed to make it ok? STEFAN: No. no, none of this is ok, Elena. I know that. ELENA: Are there any others, aside from you and Damon? STEFAN: Not in Mystic falls, not anymore. ELENA: Not anymore? STEFAN: There was a time when this town was... Very much aware of vampires, and it didn't end well for anybody. That's why it's important that you don'tell anyone. ELENA: I can't promise that. STEFAN: Elena... Give me today. I will answer any questions that you have, and when it's over, you can decide for yourself what you wanna do with what you know. It'll be your choice. [At the cemetery.] LOGAN: Never smelled one this bad before. SHERIFF: It tried to cover its tracks. LOGAN: Are you sure? SHERIFF: I'm positive. You only burn a corpse to try to hide cause of death, and there are no shell casings. LOGAN: We know who they are? SHERIFF: Doc'll have to check their dental records. LOGAN: What story should i run? SHEIFF: Drug deal gone bad. It's not too big a stretch. LOGAN: I got the Gilbert watch. SGERIFF: Good. POLICEMAN: Found this in the brush about 10 yards away. SHERIFF: Vicki Donovan. LOGAN: You know her? SHERIFF: I went to high school with her mother. LOGAN: Think she's one of these? SHERIFF: I hope not. [At the Salvatore's House. Vicki is on a sofa.] DAMON: Where are you, Stefan? I'm trapped at the house, and I'm getting really bored and really impatient, and I don't do bored and impatient. Bring me my ring. Damn it. Aw, don't get blood on the couch. Please. VICKI: I got you good, didn't i? DAMON: Well, you're not gonna be any fun today. I'm so gonna regret this. Drink up. Drink it up. Don't drip. There you go. Good girl. That's it. [Elena's car.] STEFAN: Stop here. ELENA: What are we doing here? STEFAN: I want to show you something. ELENA: In the middle of nowhere? STEFAN: This... Didn't used to be nowhere. Used to be my home. ELENA: It looks so... STEFAN: Old? It's because they are. ELENA: Wait. How long have you... STEFAN: I've been 17 years old since 1864. ELENA: Oh, my god. STEFAN: You said you wanted to know. I'm not gonna hold anything back. Half century beforethe boardinghouse was even built, this was my family's home. Damon and I... We were both born here. The Salvatore brothers, best of friends. FLASHBACK Mystic Falls, Virginie, 1864. STEFAN: Wait. Where did you learn this game? DAMON: Camp outside Atlanta. One of the officers picked it up at Harvard. Catch. STEFAN: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. What are the rules? What are the rules? KATHERINE: Who needs rules? Mind if I join you? STEFAN: Uh, well, you could, uh-- you could get hurt. My brother likes to play rough. KATHERINE: Somehow, I think that you play rougher. DAMON: Why are you just standing there? That is a girl who clearly wants to be chased. If you don't do it, I will. [The old Salvatore's field.] ELENA: You knew Katherine in 1864? Damon made it seem like... STEFAN: Damon was trying to make you think that... I was still heartbroken. He saw that I was happy with you, and he wanted to ruin it. ELENA: All because you loved the same girl 145 years ago? STEFAN: She wasn't just any girl. FLASHBACK Mystic Falls, Virginie, 1864. KATHERINE: Ha! I win. What's my prize? DAMON: What would you like it to be? STEFAN: They extended your leave? DAMON: I was simply having too much fun to return to battle. STEFAN: Your commitment to the confederacy is inspiring. KATHERINE: Well, this works out wonderfully for me. DAMON: How's that, miss Katherine? KATHERINE: Now i'll have both of you here to keep me entertained. First and foremost, I'll need someone to escort me to the founder's ball. DAMON/STEFAN: With pleasure. I would be honored. KATHERINE: The smart and kind Salvatore brothers both coming to my rescue. How will I ever choose? [The old Salvatore's field.] STEFAN: She chose me. I escorted her to the ball at the original Lockwood mansion. ELENA: The first founder's party... Where you signed the registry. STEFAN: I didn't care that I had gotten something that my brother wanted. I didn't even care if it hurt him. I only knew that I wanted her. DAMON: So he was upset. STEFAN: That's the thing about Damon. He doesn't get mad. He just gets even. [At the Salvatore's house.] VICKI: Oh, man. That shower was so great. Music playing. VICKI: What did you give me? DAMON: Some blood. You loved it. VICKI: I did? Wait. I'm confused. How did we get here? DAMON: We was in the woods. You were drunk. I attacked you. Then i killed all of your friends and brought you here, gave you same blood. you loved it. And now we're gonna party till the sun goes down. VICKI: Ok. Um, but first, can i have another hit? That blood was so good. DAMON: Only if I can. [The old Salvatore's field.] STEFAN: What Damon wants, Damon usually gets. I didn't know it at the time, but... Turns out that night... Katherine was with him, too. ELENA: So he stole her from you, not the other way around? STEFAN: Turns out she wasn't ours to steal. FLASHBACK Mystic Falls, Virginie, 1864. Stefan in Katherine's bedroom. STEFAN: I will love you forever. KATHERINE: Forever is a very long time, you know. STEFAN: Not long enough. She bits him. KATHERINE: Good morning. Clear the room, please. You're upset. STEFAN: Your face, it was like a demon. KATHERINE: But you're not afraid. STEFAN: Get away from me. Get away. KATHERINE: It doesn't change the way you feel about me. You will not tell anyone. STEFAN: I-- KATHERINE: shh. We will go on exactly as we have. STEFAN: Yes. We will go on. KATHERINE: You have no idea of the future I have planned for us, Stefan-- You, me, and Damon. No rules. [The old Salvatore's field.] STEFAN: She could controlmy mind and Damon's. She compelled each of us to keep the secret from the other. She wanted all of us to be together forever. Didn't work out that way, but... Damon and i, looks like we're stuck with each other... Like it or not. ELENA: Is that Damon's ring? STEFAN: I took it from him, but i have to give it back. ELENA: No. don't, Stefan. keep it hidden. STEFAN: Elena, if i don't give it to him, he'll retaliate in the only way that he knows he can hurt me. ELENA: And how is that? STEFAN: By hurting you. [Lockwood's house.] SHERIFF: We're working on the burn bodies. MR LOCKWOOD: Doc i.d. the bodies? SHERIFF: A few townies. Notorious druggies. MR LOCKWOOD: I suppose that'll make it easy for people to buy the story. And Vicki Donovan? SHERIFF: She's not one of the deceased. MR LOCKWOOD: Where the hell is she? SHERIFF: I wish I knew. LOGAN: Sorry i'm late. MR LOCKWOOD: You have the watch? It's ready. LOGAN: That's it? MR LOCKWOOD: Yes. That's it. He gives him a compass. [The Salvatore's house.] Vicki is dancing. VICKI: I am so over Tyler, so over him. I knew from the beginning that i was only a piece of ass to him, but i thought maybe if he got to know me better, he might see something more. But no. Now, Jeremy, on the other hand, that's all he's ever seen in me is something more, and i like that. DAMON: Jeremy, huh? Elena's brother? VICKI: Yeah. yeah. So, Elena used to date my brother, and they were always together, so jeremy would always be hanging around and crushing on me and-- Hey, why don't you have a girlfriend? You're, like, totally cool and so hot. DAMON: I know. VICKI: Don't you wanna be in love? DAMON: I've been in love. It's painful and pointless and overrated. Except when it isn't. No more talking. Let's dance. VICKI: My mom spends most of her time in Virginia beach with Pete. He drives trucks. I don't remember my dad, bufrom what i gather, he's not worth remembering. DAMON: Your life is so pathetic. VICKI: Yeah. I mean, I'm the screwed-up one. Matt's got it so easy. he's the golden boy. I mean, he's gonna get a football scholarship and marry Elena and have a lawn mower and some babies, and when i think of my future, i just come up blank. DAMON: You are so damaged. VICKI: Yep. DAMON: I mean, you don't have one hint of self-esteem. VICKI: Nope, none. DAMON: I think I know what can help you. VICKI: So what's that? DAMON: Death. He kill her. After few minutes, Vicki wakes up. VICKI: What happened? DAMON: We were dancing, and then-- then I killed you. VICKI: What? DAMON: You're dead. VICKI: I'm dead? DAMON: Yeah, well, let's not make a big deal out of it. Drank my blood, i killed you, and now you have to feed in order to complete the process. You're wasted. You don't wanna be out there all alone. You're about to get really freaky. VICKI: Ok, I had a really good time. I just wanna go home. DAMON: You're gonna start craving blood, and until you get it, you're gonna feel very out of it. You have to be careful. VICKI: Come on, move. DAMON: See? you're already starting to fall apart. VICKI: And i'm going home now. DAMON: Ok, fine. I'm just warning you. Actually, you know what? You should go. In fact, if i were you, I would stop by your boyfriend Jeremy's house. VICKI: Yeah, whatever. DAMON: Bye. Tell Elena I said hi. and if you see Stefan, tell him to call me. [In the wood.] SHERIFF: I got Stanley on the Moore street entrance. The rest of us'll cover other access points. Call him or call me if that thing goes off. Don't use the radio. Cellphones only. LOGAN: Got it. SHERIFF: You've got 8 rounds. Remember, wood bullets won't kill him, but it'll wound him enough for you to get close and stake him. You sure you can handle this? LOGAN: Of course I can. SHERIFF: You ever staked a vampire before? LOGAN: Have you? [Elena's House.] Doorbell ringing. JEREMY: Coming! VICKI: Hey. The sun is killing me. my eyes are on fire. JEREMY: Where have you been? VICKI: It's good. everything's good. JEREMY: Did something happen? VICKI: I'm hungry. What do you got to eat? JEREMY: You're high? Vicki, it's the middle of the day. VICKI: Could you just not talk so loud? My head, it hurts. I need quiet. [Old Salvatore's field.] ELENA: The mind control... You said Katherine used. Do you ever do that to me? STEFAN: No. That necklace, it contains an herb called vervain. It protects you from being compelled. I wanted to protect you from Damon's influence. But i also wanted to... Protect you from me. All right, n n you should never take that necklace off... Because no matter what happens after today, no matter how you feel about me... You'll know that you were free to make your own choice. [Elena's house.] MATT: Where is she? JEREMY: Come this way. MATT: What's she on? JEREMY: ---I don't know. MATT: Hey, Vic. How you doin'? VICKI: Not good, Mattie. I hurt. MATT: Ok, where's it hurt? VICKI: My gums. My jaw hurts. My gum--there's something in my gums, and it hurts. MATT: Ok, well-- VICKI: No. Just leave me alone. MATT: Come on, Vic. Don't be like that. Let's get you home. VICKI: Just turn it off! JEREMY: Turn what off? VICKI: The talking, the chatter, just turn it off. TV sound is inaudible. VOICE: ...horribly. 3 bodies were found dead in what is believed to be a drug deal gone awry. The bodies have yet to be identified. They were discovered earlier today over at the old Mystic Falls cemetery. JEREMY: That's where we were last night. MATT: What happened, Vic? VOICE: ..homicide, and are fast under way looking for suspects. They're asking anyone with information... MATT: I'm calling the cops. VICKI: No. Don't. JEREMY: What happened after I left last night, Vick? MATT: Dude, are you ok ? JEREMY: I'm fine. i'm fine. MATT: Damn, Vick. ELENA: What's going on? MATT: She's really messed up. STEFAN: Elena, back up. Vicki, look at me. Focus. You're gonna be fine. Everything's gonna be fine. Guys, take her up to bed. Shut the blinds. She's gonna be ok. Come on. Come on. ELENA: You know what's wrong with her? STEFAN: Yeah. ELENA: What is it? STEFAN: She's transitioning. ELENA: Transitioning to what? STEFAN: A vampire. ELENA: What? STEFAN: Damon must have gotten to her. She's new. She hasn't completed her transformation yet. ELENA: H-how does she do that? STEFAN: She has to feed on human blood. ELENA: And what if she doesn't? STEFAN: She'll die. She may only have a few hours. ELENA: She's upstairs with him right now. STEFAN: It's ok. She doesn't know what's happening to her yet. ELENA: So when is she gonna know? STEFAN: Right now, she doesn't remember anything. A part of her is still human, but slowly, the deeper she gets into the transition, the memories will start to come back, and then she'll know she has to make the choice. ELENA: The same choice you made? [In the bedroom.] VICKI: I'm sorry I'm so much trouble. JEREMY: Aw, you just--you need to sleep it off, ok? VICKI: No. MATT: Vick. Vick! JEREMY: She was fine, and then she just-- she just freaked out. MATT: I'm gonna go look for her. Call me if you hear anything. STEFAN: I can track her. ELENA: Go. [In the wood.] Cellphone rings. SHERIFF: Yeah. LOGAN: I think I got something. It's pointing towards the old cemetery. SHERIFF: Headed your way. [Elena's house.] JEREMY: Maybe we should check in with Matt. ELENA: He'll call when he finds her. JEREMY: Well, what are we supposed to do? ELENA: We wait. We're supposed to wait. JEREMY: I don't know what's wrong with her. ELENA: She'll be fine. It'll all be fine. Doorbell rings. It's Damon. ELENA: Jeremy, go upstairs. DAMON: You're afraid of me. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess. Stefan finally fessed up. ELENA: Stay away from me. DAMON: Hey, there's no need to be rude. I'm just looking for Stefan. May I come in? Oh, wait. Of course I can. I've been invited. We can cut to the chase if you want. I'm not gonna kill you right now. That wouldn't serve my greater agenda. So... Where's stefan? ELENA: He's out looking for Vicki. DAMON: Don't look at me with those judgey little eyes. Girl's gonna thank me for what I did to her. ELENA: Did you thank Katherine? DAMON: Mmm. Got the whole life story, huh? ELENA: I got enough. DAMON: Oh, I doubt that. Tell my brother i'm looking for him. Oh, tip for later, be careful who you invite in the house. [At the cemetery.] STEFAN: Vicki. VICKI: I'm starting to remember things, what he is, what he said. I remember you. The hospital, the--the rooftop, it's all coming back. STEFAN: I'm so sorry. Damon had no right to do this to you. VICKI: He said that I need to feed. What will happen if i don't? STEFAN: You'll fade quickly... And then it'll all just be over. VICKI: I'll be dead. STEFAN: Hey. VICKI: I don't want this. STEFAN: I know. It'll be ok. You're gonna be ok. I can help you. VICKI: Is it better? Is it better? Will I be better? I wanna go home. Will you take me home? STEFAN: Ok. Gunshots. Stefan is hurts. STEFAN: Ahh! VICKI: No! Damon bits Logan. DAMON: It's wood. They know. If anyone's gonna kill you, it's gonna be me. My ring. Vicki is drinking Logan's blood. STEFAN: No! No! Vicki! VICKI: I'm sorry. DAMON: Oops. Sheriff Forbes finds Logan. SHERIFF: My god... The watch. Find the watch. [Front of Elena's house.] ELENA: You're bleeding. STEFAN: No, it's ok. It's ok. I'm ok. STEFAN: I couldn't stop her. I tried. ELENA: What does that mean? STEFAN: She fed, and then I lost her. ELENA: Oh, my god. STEFAN: I'll take care of it. I'll find her, and i will show her that she can live like I do. I will make sure that she does not hurt anybody, Elena. I promise you. ELENA: What do i tell my brother and-- and Matt? STEFAN: We'll come up with a story. ELENA: You mean we'll come up with a lie. STEFAN: I'm so sorry. ELENA: I gave you today just like you asked. And I understand that you would never do anything to hurt me, and I promise I will keep your secret, but... I can't be with you, Stefan. I'm sorry. I- I just can't... She enters in her house. She cries.

Haunted [1.07][edit]

Tyler just get out of his sport lesson. Tyler:See you bro! Tyler get in his car. Vicky:Hi Ty! Tyler:Whoa Vicky?Everyone's looking for you. Vicky:I know. Tyler:What's wrong Vic? Vicky:I'm so cold. Tyler:Are you on drugs. Everyone thinks you're off on a bender. Vicky:I wish. Tyler:What happened in those wood ,Vicky? Those kids that were killed,What did you see? Vicky:I'm so scared. Tyler:Come here. It's okay. I'll take you home. Vicky:I can't control it. Tyler:Control what? Vicky:I am so hungry ,Ty. And it won't go away. Tyler:What are you on ? What drugs did you take? Vicky:I want it. I am so hungry,Ty. Tyler:Okay,look, I'll get you something to eat. Just sit back. Look,let just get you home, Vicky. Okay, what is wrong with you? Vicky: Aah! Let go of me! Stefan Stops Vicky Tyler:What's going on here,Stefan? What's wrong with her? Damon: You don't talk. Tyler: Screw you, dude. Damon: "Dude" really?, "dude". Stefan : Damon,don't. Damon:Oh come on. Who's gonna miss this idiot? Tyler hits Damon. Vicky:Ooh ! Don't you hurt him. Damon Takes Tyler by the neck. Damon:Forget what you saw here tonight. None of us were here. Elena wakes up in her bed room. She gets in bathroom. Elena: Sorry. Jeremy:Oh, no , it's cool, I'm done. Elena:You're up early. Where are you going? Jeremy:Police station. They're organizing the search party for Vicky , so... Elena:Wait. Shouldn't you be going to school? Jeremy: What? You're kidding me, right ? Elena:You shouldn't skip school. If they find her, we'll know. That's what cellphones are for. Jeremy:Yeah, you're lips keep movin'. I don't know why. Matt Cellphone rings. Matt:Yeah? Vicky:Matty? Matt:Vicky, where are you? Are you okay? Vicky:Yeah. I'm okay. Matt:Tell me where you are , and I'll come to get you. Vicky: No. Matty , I just need some time to figure things out. Just know that I am okay , okay ? Please don't worry about me. She just stop the conversation. Vicky:I don't understand why I have to stay cooped up here. Why can't I just go home? Stefan: Because you're changing ,Vicky, and it's not something you wanna do alone. Damon:There's nothin' about that Logan guy I killed in here. Not a word. Someone's covering it up. Vicky:What is that? Damon:This is a very special, very old compass. What was Logan Fell with it? Aren't you curious? Stefan:Well , if you're so worried that somebody's onto you, why don't you just leave town, Damon? Damon:We should be all worried. Vicky:Hey, um, I'm hungry. Do you have anything to eat? Stefan: Here. Vicky:What is it? Stefan:It's what you're craving. Damon:Heh. Don't lie to the girl. It's so not what you're craving,but it'll do in a pinch, right , Stef? Vicky:What is it? Damon:Yeah, what is it? Is it a skunk? Saint Bernard? Bambi? Stefan:Go on. Give it a try. Damon:She's new. She needs people blood. She can't sustain on that stuff. Vicky:Yeah, why can't I have people blood? Damon:Yeah. Stefan:Because it's wrong to pray on innocent people, Vicky. Damon:You don't have to kill to feed. Just find someone really tasty and then erase their memory after wards. It's so easy. Stefan:No,no ,no. There's no guarantee that you can control yourself, okay? It takes years to learn that. You could easily kill somebody, and then you have to carry that with you for the rest of your life, which, if I haven't made clear,is eternity. Damon:Don't listen to him. He walks on a moral plane way out of our eye line. I say snatch, eat, erase. Stefan:Hey, look at me. We choose our own path. Our values and our actions , they define who we are. Damon:Okay, count deepak. I am outta here. Vicky: Can I have some more? Damon goes downstairs , the door bell rings. Elena: Is Stefan here? Damon: Yep! Elena:Where is he? Damon:And good morning to you, little miss " I'm on a mission". Elena:How can you be so arrogant and glib after everything that you've done? Damon:And how can you be so brave and stupid to call a vampire glib and arrogant? Elena:If you wanted me dead, I'd be dead. Damon:Yes, you would. Elena:But I'm not. Damon:Yet. Elena:Where is Stefan? Damon:He's upstairs singing "the rain in Spain". Knock yourself out. Damon gets out ,Elena shut the door. Elena:Stefan? Stefan? Stefan:Yes. Elena:Where is Vicky? Stefan:She's upstairs. Elena:What happens now? Because my brother is out there searching for her with the rest of the town. What do I tell him? Stefan:I'm working with her, but it's gonna take time. She's a very volatile and impulsive personality. She's a drug user. I mean, all that's gonna play a part in how she respond to this. Elena:So, she's a vampire with issues? What am I supposed to do? Because I'm lying to everyone that I care about. What's gonna happen to her? Stefan:I'm gonna keep her here with me until I know that she's safe. Vicky:How long is that? Stefan:We can talk about that later. Elena:Hey, Vicky, How are you? Vicky:How am I? You're kidding ,right? Bonnie's talking with her grams. Bonnie:Was our family burned in the witch trials? Grams:No,the girls that were persecuted in Salem were entirely innocent. You have to have more than ignorance to trap a real witch. Bonnie:How did we end up in Mystic Falls? Grams:Our family fled Salem in 1692 and relocated here. Our ancestors lived in secrecy for over a hundred years. It's important that we still do. Bonnie:Well Grams, everybody knows you're a witch. Grams:They also know it's absurd, can't be true. I'm just a kooky lady that teaches occult at the university. No ones really believes. They just poke fun. And let 'em . Just don't let 'em know the truth. Bonnie:Where's the witchcraft? I mean, you've been talking history for 2 days. I wanna get to the fun part. Grams:It's not meant to be fun. It's real and it's serious, and you must understand it before you practice it. Aren't you late for school? At the mystic grill a man and a woman talks. Man:We should have never trusted that Logan...Weasel with the watch. Woman:How many are we dealing with? Man:Well , the coroner thinks one. Something about the wound radius and the jaw pattern . Woman:Are we in danger? I mean, if it found the watch, then it knows we know, and could it come after us? A-and should I even be saying "it"? Or..or is it a he or a she? Man:If it has any historical knowledge of the town, then it'll know where the watch came from, so yes, we could very much be in danger. Woman:So what do we do? Man:Just keep it quiet. We can't have the entire town aware of this. We need to find him before he finds us. At the school party. Tyler:Hey man! Matt:Hey! Tyler:I heard they're putting together a search party for Vicky. Matt:She just called. She's okay. Tyler:Ooh good. That's great. I figured you must have been goin' out of your mind. Matt:Little bit . Yeah. Tyler:I was just gonna offer. You know, if there's anything I could do. Matt:I appreciate it. Caroline:I have got your costume. It's all here. Bonnie:Seriously? Caroline:Come on. Can someone please be excited that it's Halloween? I just wanna have fun, you know , just some silly, fluffy, Damon free fun. Bonnie:Hey, isn't this the one you got from Damon? Caroline:Yep. Wear it . Toss it. I don't care. I just want it gone. Hey, have you seen Elena? Do we know what she's wearing? Bonnie:I was with Grams all week-end . I haven't talked to her. Maybe she's with Stefan. Caroline:Riding to his castle on his white horse. Bonnie: Don't be bitter . It provoke wrinkles. At Stefan's Home. Stefan:Coffee is our friend. It's the caffeine. It circulate through our veins, and it warms our body so we're not cold to the touch. Vicky: Well, what if I wanna drink human blood? Stefan:You're gonna have to learn to live with that urge and fight it on a daily basis one day at time. Vicky: Oh god! Don't start with that whole 12 steps thing. School counselor has been down that road, and it doesn't work for me. Stefan:It can work. It's your choice ,Vicky. Vicky:So you've never tasted human blood? Stefan:Not in a long time. Vicky:How long? Stefan:Years and years. I'm not proud of my past behavior. Vicky:Does this sketchy feelings ever go away? It's like I have a massive hangover. This daylight thing is a bitch. I need more blood. Where's your bathroom ? I have to pee. Why do I have to pee? I thought I was dead. Stefan:I'm going to , uh...I'm gonna get her some more. All right. I'll be quick. Vicky:False alarm. My body's feeling really funky. It's a good funk , but it's weird. Elena:Hmm, who are you calling? Vicky:Jeremy. Elena:Vicky, you can't see Jeremy anymore. Vicky:Oh come on don't you start. I'm gonna see whoever I wanna see. Elena:Even though you could hurt him? Vicky:I would never Hurt Jeremy. Elena:I know you think that but I can't take the risk. You're gonna have to let Jeremy go now. Vicky: Oh oh Really? An how long have you been preparing a "you're not good enough " speech? I'm presuming it predates the whole vampire thing. Elena:All I am saying is Jeremy is not getting involved in any of this. I mean it, Vicky. Vicky:Or what? Let's get one thing straight, you perky little bitch. You had my brother whipped for 15 years. 15 years and then you dumped him. When I look at you that is all I see, just so you know. And I'm gonna see Jeremy whenever I wanna see Jeremy, because I have some fun new toys to play with , and I won't think twice about ripping your little head off. You got it ? Elena's coughing. Elena: She threatened me. Stefan:She's on edge. Imagine every sense in your body operating at super speed. I mean, she's uncomfortable in her own skin. And then when you throw in her other issues... Elena: How long before it settles?Hours?Days?Weeks? Stefan:There's no rule book. Elena:Well, how long before you learned to control it? Stefan:A while, But I didn't have anybody helping me. I had to do it on my own. The thing is it's hard to resist certain people especially when you're new, it's difficult to separate your feelings. Love,lust,anger, can all blur into one urge, hunger. Elena:What does that mean? Stefan:It means that Jeremy can't see her, not now. She might not be able to resist him, and she could hurt him. Elena: Or worse. Stefan: I'm not gonna let anybody get hurt. Elena:I need to get going. Stefan:Elena... Elena:Please Stefan. There's only so much I can take. The music is playing. Damon:What are you doing? Vicky:Just contemplating the next hundred years. Why did you do it? Damon:I was …. bored. Vicky:You did this to me out of boredom? Damon:It's one of the pitfalls of eternity. Vicky:Now I'm bored. And all I can think about is blood. I just want some blood. I can't think about anything else. What is that about? Damon:That' ll ease up. You've been cooped up all day. Let's go. Vicky:Where? Damon:Your life was pathetic. Your afterlife doesn't have to be. Stefan:What are you doing? Damon:She's been cooped up in your room all day. She's not Anne Frank. Stefan:No no no . Hey hey...Now's not the time for this. Damon:If you're gonna teach her. Teach her. Show her what it's all about. Stefan:She could hurt someone. Damon:I'm not takin' her at Disneyland. We're going in the front yard. Come on. Stefan:Bad idea Damon. Damon:She's a vampire Stefan, she should know the perks. Vicky:Like what? Damon:Like... Vicky:Whoa. How did you do that? Ho ho ho ho. Damon: Come on Vicky ,live a little. No pun intended. Stefan:uh... Damon:My bad. Vicky get in her home. Vicky:Matt. Matt:Vicky? Is that you? Vicky:Hey. Matt:Get in here. Vicky:In a minute. I... Matt:Please come inside. I've been worried. Thank god you're okay. Where were you , vic? Vicky:It's not a big deal. Drop it already. Matt: 3 people were murdered in the woods. The cops were lookin' for you. They wanna question you. Vicky:They know where I live. Matt:Everyone was worried about you. Vicky: I'm back now . Just let it go. Matt:Are you kidding? I had a freakin' search party out lookin' for you while you were off on your crazy drug trip, and you want me to let it go? Vicky:My head hurts. Matt:You think? Doorbell rings. Matt:Stefan, what are you doing here? Stefan:Is Vicky home? Matt:Yeah. Stefan:Can I see her ,please? Vicky:Don't let him in. I don't want him in here. Matt:Did he do something to you? Vicky:No. I just don't want him in here. Stefan:Just let me come in so I can explain myself. Matt:Look, I don't know what's going on but I think you should leave now. Stefan:Matt... Matt:Please,now,Stefan. Jeremy is taking something to eat. Jeremy:You gotta call me ,vic. I don't get it. What's going on with you? Just...just call me please. Elena:Hey. So,um, do you wanna hang out tonight? We could go to the ,uh, Halloween thing at school. Could be fun Jeremy: Cool. Sure. Sounds uh... sounds fun. Can't wait. Elena:I know you're upset about Vicky. I heard she call Matt. But you can't be with her. She needs to get better. The best thing you can do for her is let her go. Jeremy:What does that even mean, "let her go"? Oh ,okay, sure. Since we're such experts on letting people go , right? Elena:I know you may not see it, but trust me Jer. It's for the best. Jeremy:Look, for month after mom and dad died, I felt like crap, like "nothing really even mattered" crap. Now all of a sudden,I get these moments and things started to feel just a little bit better, and Vicky was in every single of 'em. So you may not see it, but trust me.Keeping me away from her is not for the best. Vicky and Jeremy exchange some messages. Back to the school party. Tyler: Cider for the ladies. It's a Lockwood special. Bonnie:No way. Last year I was hung over until thanksgiving. Caroline: Lightweight. I am going to drink until someone is hot enough to make out with. Tyler:Sounds like a plan. To the grill with a man and a woman. Man:How many martinis have you had. Woman:Oh. Don't start with me. Man:Can we go now? We're late for the Halloween party. Let's go. Woman:So go ahead. I'd like to finish my drink. Damon:Let me guess. Daisy Buchanan. I love a good "gatsby" look. Woman:I've met you before. Aren't you Caroline Forbes' boyfriend? Damon:Ah, she had a schoolgirl crush on me but...It was cute but I had to let her down easy. Woman:It's Damon,right? Damon:Ah, you remember? Woman:Well, you have a face that's hard to forget. What's your last name Damon? Damon:Salvatore. Woman:Salvatore. Damon:Mm hmm. Woman:Are you any relation to Zach? Damon: Zach's my uncle. How do you know zach? Woman:are you okay? Damon:Yeah.

Stefan:I, uh...I wanted to help her. But instead, uh...How's he doin'? Elena:He's a mess. I don't want him going through this again. He's just a kid. Stefan:Elena, what can I do? I...What can I do to help? I'll do anything. Elena:Can you make him forget? Stefan:Elena... Elena:Stefan, please. I don't know how he'll ever get past this. I just want him to forget everything that happened. Stefan:If I did it, there's no guarantee that it would work...Because of who I am, Because of how I live. I don't have the ability to do it right. Damon: I can do it. If this is what you want...I'll do it. Elena:It's what I want. Damon:What do you want him to know? Elena:I want you to tell him that Vicky left town And she's not coming back,That he shouldn't look for her or worry about her. He's gonna miss her, but he knows it's for the best. Damon goes inside. Elena:Part of me wishes that I could forget, too...Forget meeting you,Finding out what you are and everything that's happened since. Stefan:If that's what you want. Elena:Yes, it is. Because I don't want it to be like this. I don't wanna feel like this. But I can't. With everything that's happened...I can't lose the way I feel about you. Damon comes. Damon:It's done.

History Repeating [1.09][edit]

Damon: Rise and shine! You’ll be late for school!
Stefan: What are you-- what are you doing?
Damon: Peace offering. (lifts a mug of coffee) C'mon, you need it for blood circulation. It does dead flesh good.
(Stefan glares in silence)
Damon: Alright, I’m sorry.
Stefan: Step aside, please.
Damon: I got the town off our back. It was for the greater good - but I’m sorry! And to prove it, I’m not going to feed on a human. For at least a...week. I’ll adopt the Stefan diet. Only nothing with feathers.
Stefan (mimicking Damon): Because I realize that killing your closest and oldest friend is beyond evil, and yet, somehow, it’s worthy of humor.
Damon: Are you mimicking me?
Stefan: Yes, Stefan. Now that the secret society of vampire haters is off our back, I can go back to my routine of how can I destroy Stefan’s life this week.
Damon (mimicking Stefan): And I can go back to sulking and Elena-longing and forehead-brooding. (in his own voice) This is fun, I like this.
Stefan (mimicking Damon): And I will finally reveal the ulterior motive behind my evil and diabolical return to Mystic Falls.
Damon: (pauses) Yeah, I’m done. (turns to leave)
Damon (mimicking Stefan): This is so like you, Damon - always have to have the last word.

Matt: Hey.
Caroline: Hey. What is that?
Matt: What is what?
Caroline: The "hey." That is twice. That is two heys. That' you have any other words in your vocabulary?
Matt: What's wrong with hey?
Caroline: It reeks of awkward subtext. You just spent the night in my bed. There was cuddling. Then you snuck out before dawn so you wouldn't have to face me. Which, I must say, is a total lame guy move. Which I did not appreciate. Now, with the heys? Seriously? I mean, I may have been some pathetic, insecure mess after the party, but do not mistake that for me being a pushover. Because I do not let guys mess with my head anymore.
Matt: I heard your mom in the morning. I didn't want to get you in trouble, so I went out the window.
Caroline: You went out the window? Well, another lame guy move.
Matt: Your mom's a sheriff. And as for the heys, I'm pretty sure it's what I've said to you every day since the first grade.
Caroline: Oh.
Matt: Trying to read something into it - lame girl move.

Elena: I'm sorry, Stefan. I thought that I couldn't be with you, but I can. You don't have to push me away. I can do this.
Stefan: I can't. I, uh, I have to leave, Elena. Too many people died. Too much has happened.
Elena: What? No, I know you think you're protecting me, but -
Stefan: Elena, I have to. Coming back was... It was a mistake. I can't be a part of your life anymore.
Elena: Don't go, Stefan. Please. You don't have to. This is your home, you just... Please don't go.
Stefan: (after kissing Elena's hand) Goodbye, Elena. (Turning his back and leaving, still in the woods)
Elena: You're just gonna walk away? Don't walk away, Stefan. Stefan!

The Turning Point [1.10][edit]

Logan: See, I know what you and your brother are. I've been watching the two of you. I knew you'd show up here. And I'm glad you did. Because I have some questions.
Damon: Me first. Who turned you?
Logan: How should I know? Last thing I remember is I'm about to stake your brother and then you grabbed me. That's it. Until I wake up in the ground behind a used car dealership on Highway 4. Somebody buried me.
Damon: It happens.
Logan: You bit me. It had to be you.
Damon: You have to have vampire blood in your system when you die. I didn't do that. Some other vampire found you. Gave you their blood.
Logan: Who?
Damon: That's what I want to know.
Logan: Dude! It's not like the welcome wagon was waiting with a bunk cake and a handbook. It's been a learn-as-you-go process. One minute, I'm a small town, on the rise news guy, and the next thing I know, I can't get inside my house because my foot won't go through the door.
Damon: You have to be invited in.
Logan: I know. I live alone.
Damon: Oh, that sucks.

Elena: I'm guessing you're not here to plan the path for your future. You're looking out for me.
Stefan: Hope that's okay. (After a little while) You know I, uh, I wanted to be a doctor before everything happened. But I couldn't, this...
Elena: The blood?
Stefan: Yeah. I've dabbled in a bunch of different things, though.
Elena: Didn't love anything enough to stick to it?
Stefan: No, I've loved it all, I just... I had to move on before anybody could notice that I wasn't...getting any older.
Elena: How long before that would happen?
Stefan: Few years, usually. Sometimes shorter.
Elena: And you always left?
Stefan: I didn't have a choice. So! What about, what about you? What are your plans for the future?
Elena: I don't want to talk about my future, Stefan. Because everything you're saying is making it perfectly clear that you're not going to be in it.
Stefan: No, Elena, it's not that I don't want to be, it's...
Elena: You can't, I get it. I heard you the first time, and the second time. And I appreciate you looking out for me, but, please, if you're gonna leave, then just go.

Elena: What I said earlier, about you leaving... It was harsh.
Stefan: No, no, you... You had every right.
Elena: You asked me what I wanted my future to be. I wanted to be a writer. My mom sort of pushed me into that direction from the time I was able to read. She supported me, encouraged me, bought me my first journal...and then she died. And I can't see myself being a writer any more. That was something that we shared. I know that you think that you brought all of this bad stuff into my life, but my life already had it. I was buried in it.
Stefan: This is different.
Elena: It doesn't make it any less painful.
Stefan: I know that it's...that it's hard to understand, but I'm doing this for you. (Gets out of the car, leaving Elena inside)
Elena: (Thinks, and gets out of the car, with a determined face) No. You don't get to make that decision for me. If you walk away, it's for you, because I know what I want. Stefan, I love you.

Bloodlines [1.11][edit]

Elena: Gah!
Damon: How you doing up there?
Elena: Damon?
Damon: You look stuck.
Elena: (sobbing) It's- it's my seatbelt.
Damon: Shh, shh, shh. (wrenches passenger door open) Let me get you out of here. I want you to put your hands on the roof. Just like that. You ready?
(Elena nods)
Damon: One, two, three... (rips out seatbelt buckle)
Damon: I gotcha. (pulls Elena from the car) Are you okay? Can you stand?
(Elena groans)
Damon: Is anything broken? (sets her down; her legs buckle) Whoa! You are fading fast, Elena. Elena? Look at me. Focus... Look at me. Hey...
Elena: I look like her.
Damon: What?
(Elena collapses)

Damon: Good morning.
Elena: Where are we?
Damon: Georgia.
Elena: Georgia?, we're not. Seriously, Damon, where are we?
Damon: Seriously, we're - we're in Georgia. (looks at her) How are you feeling?
Elena: I... I...
Damon: There were no broken bones. I checked.
Elena: My car... There was a man... I hit a man. (pause) But then he got up and...who was that?
Damon: That's what I would like to know.
Elena: Where is my phone? (Damon looks away) Okay, we really need to go back, nobody knows where I am. Pull over. I mean it, Damon, pull over.
Damon: (sighs tiredly)
Elena: Stop the car!
Damon: Oh, you were so much more fun when you were asleep. (pulls the car over)
Elena: (gets out of the car)
Damon: (helps her)
Elena: I'm fine. We have to go back.
Damon: Oh, come on. We've already come this far.
Elena: Why are you doing this? I can't be in Georgia. I...I wrecked my car. I have to go home. (pause) This is kidnapping.
Damon: That’s a little melodramatic, don’t you think?
Elena: You're not funny. You can't do this. I'm not going to Georgia.
Damon: Well, you're in Georgia. Without your magical necklace, I might add. I can very easily make you...agreeable.
Elena: What are you trying to prove?
(Elena's phone rings)
Elena: That’s my phone.
Damon: Mmm... (looks at the phone) It's your boyfriend. (holds the phone out to her; she refuses to answer) I'll take it. (answers) Elena's phone.
Stefan: Where is she? Why do you have her phone? Is she okay?
Damon: Elena? Yeah, she's right here. And, yes, she's fine.
Stefan: Where are you? Let me talk to her.
Damon: (to Elena) He wants to talk to you.
Elena: Mm-mm. (shakes her head)
Damon: (to Stefan) Yeah, I, uh, I don't think she really wants to talk to you right now.
Stefan: Damon, I swear to God if you touch her-
Damon: You have a good day. Bye now.

Elena: Look, no one knows where I am. Can we please just go back?
Damon: We’re almost there.
Elena: Where is 'there'?
Damon: It’s a little place right outside of Atlanta. Oh, come on, Elena. You don’t want to go back right now, do you? What’s the rush? Time-out. Trust me, the problem is still going to be there when you come home. Look, step away from your life for 5 minutes. (she glares) 5 minutes!
Elena: Am I going to be safe with you?
Damon: Yes.
Elena: You promise not to do that mind-control-thing with me?
Damon: Yes.
Elena: Can I trust you?
Damon: Get in the car. Come on.

Elena: What about that man in the road? Was he a...?
Damon: From what I can tell...yeah.
Elena: You didn't know him?
Damon: If I've never met him, I wouldn't know him. It's not like we all hang out at the 'vamp bar and grill'.

Damon: Vampires can't procreate. But we love to try.

Elena: Awww, do you need a bib?
Damon: Sorry I can't unhinge my jaw like a snake to consume alcohol.

Elena: So, why did you bring me with you?
Damon: Well you're not the worst company in the world, Elena. You should give yourself more credit.
Elena: Seriously?
Damon: You were there in the road, all 'damsel in distress'-like. And I knew it'd piss off Stefan.'re not the worst company in the world, Elena.
Elena: I used to be more fun.
Damon: You did okay.
Elena: I saved your life.
Damon: I know.
Elena: And don't you forget it.

Unpleasantville [1.12][edit]

Alaric: First person account of the Civil War? That's like porn for a history teacher.

Bonnie: Which is why you should ask Jenna. First of all, the Elena I know would always want the real truth. Good or bad.
Elena: And second of all?
Bonnie: You just found out that your boyfriend is a vampire. So unless your parents are aliens, how bad can it be?

Bonnie: You tried to kill me.
Damon: But I didn't. And if I wanted to, I would have. Does that not count for anything?

Jeremy: I'm stuck on punch duty at the school dance.
Anna: How'd you get stuck with that?
Jeremy: I'm failing English - I copped a plea.

Alaric: Can I get you a drink? I hear the punch is real...boss.

Damon: Elena, would you like to dance?
Elena: I would love to. (to Stefan) May I have this dance?

Elena: (to Stefan) You are so teaching me how to hand-jive.

Bonnie: Don't rain on my hot guy parade.
Caroline: It's just a drizzle.

Stefan: Now you remember that. Because it's never happening again.

Children of the Damned [1.13][edit]

(Stefan and Elena are in bed, cuddling)
Elena: (sighs) Good morning.
Stefan: I could get used to this...
Damon: Rise and shine, sleepyheads!
Stefan: What are you doing?!
Elena: Damon, please!
Damon: Oh, stop being smutty.
Stefan: Seriously, get out of here!
Damon: If I see something I haven't seen before, I'll throw a dollar at it.

Anna: Hey, it's me again. Anna. Stalker chick and fuzzball champion.

Damon: Is she hot?
Jeremy: Yeah, but she can be weird.
Damon: Hot trumps weird. Trust me.
Jenna: (about Damon) He is ridiculously hot.
Elena: Shh! He's an ass.
(from the couch, Damon rolls his eyes)

Stefan: You met Damon.
Alaric: Who do you think killed my wife?

Fool Me Once [1.14][edit]

Stefan: Anna took Elena.
Damon: Yeah, I got that from your 600 voice mails.

Stefan: What if your blood hasn't passed out of her system?
Damon: Well, I guess you will see her again.
Stefan: Please, what do you know? You were with Anna - you must know where she's living. Just tell me where I can find her.
Damon: No. You can go now.

Stefan (to Damon): All I can remember is hating you. There may have been a time when that was different, but your choices have erased anything good about you. I also know that you have just as much reason to hate me. This all began with me. Katherine got taken away from you because of me...and I'm sorry.

Damon: I mean this sincerely: I hope Elena dies.

Elena: Do you really want Katherine out that bad?
Anna: Trust me, nobody that I know wants to see that girl again; except Damon, the love-struck idiot.

Stefan: I can get it.
Anna: Which means your brother has it. And I have the witch, so one of you had better meet me in the very public town square in 30 minutes so we can safely discuss how fun it's gonna be to work together. (hangs up)
Damon (to Stefan): Go ahead - grovel again. Oh, wait, no... I don't care.

Sheila: You got some nerve knocking on a Bennett witch's door and asking her for anything.
Damon: What'd I do?
Sheila: Spirits talk, Mr. Salvatore, and so does my granddaughter. You are no friend to us. Now get off my porch.
Damon: Step outside and say that.
Sheila: (stares hard at Damon)
Damon: (suddenly groans in pain and clutches his head)
Sheila: I am not Bonnie. You don't wanna mess with me.

Damon: Stefan will come after you, you know that. For messing with Elena.
Anna: Then he won't be too happy if I kill her when I don't get what I want. (begins to walk away)
Damon: (sighs) When do you want to do this?
Anna: (laughs) God, it's like 1864 all over again. You Salvatores are truly pathetic when it comes to women.

Stefan: Now we have to make Damon agree.
Elena: He already agreed once.
Stefan: Yes, and then we double-crossed him. So now he's angry.
Elena: He's hurt. There's a difference.

Damon: Fool me once, shame on you.
Elena: Okay, when we were in Atlanta, why didn't you use your compulsion on me?
Damon: Who says I didn't?
Elena: You didn't. I know you didn't. But you could have. You and I...we have something. An understanding. And I know that my betrayal hurt you, different than when it comes from Stefan, but I'm promising you now that I will help you get Katherine back.
Damon: I wish I could believe you.
Elena: (removes her vervain necklace) Ask me if I'm lying now.
Damon: (placing her necklace back) I didn't compel you in Atlanta because we were having fun. I wanted it to be real. (pause) I'm trusting you. Don't make me regret it.

Damon: (greeting Stefan, Bonnie, and Sheila) Brother. Witches.

Stefan: I can't.
Elena: Can't? Can't what?
Bonnie (to Elena): The spell's still up; we can't get them out. Yet.
Elena (to Stefan): You went in there not knowing if you could come back out?
Stefan: (nods silently)
Elena: Oh my God...
Stefan: I heard you scream.
Elena (to Stefan, about Damon): We can't leave him in there. We promised him, both of us.
Stefan: (nods) I know.

Damon: She's not here!
Stefan: Damon-
Damon: She's not here.
Stefan: What?

Elena: Stefan, they can't hold it much longer!
Stefan: Damon, we need to get out of here.
Damon: It doesn't make sense, they locked her inside...
Stefan: If we don't leave now, we're not getting out.
Damon: How could she not be in here?
Stefan: It's not worth spending all of eternity down here! She's not worth it!
Damon: No!
Elena: Damon!
Damon: (looks at her)
Elena: Please.

Damon (to Anna): You knew Katherine wasn't in there.
Anna: You wouldn't have helped me.
Damon: (rushes at Pearl; grabs her by the throat)
Anna: No!
Damon: Why do you get a happy ending?
Anna: Damon, please! You wouldn't have helped me! You know you wouldn't!
Damon: Why do you get it and I don't?
Pearl: The guard. The one at the church - the one who locked us in. She promised to turn him. He was obsessed with her.
Damon: (tightens his grip)
Anna: No-
Pearl: (choking) She had him under her everybody else. He let her go.
Damon: (releases Pearl)
Anna: The last I saw her...was Chicago. 1983. She knew where you were, Damon. She didn't care. (whispers) Sorry.

A Few Good Men [1.15][edit]

Sorority Girl: How do I taste?
Damon: much better than your friends.

Damon: (groans) No, Buzzkill Bob...

Damon: Relax. I haven't killed anyone in...too long.

Damon: You wanna discuss the women of my past right now? Seriously?
Stefan: You killed her.
Damon: What's your point?
Stefan: (shrugs) I just-- I just wanna know if you remember anything about her.
Damon: Oh, it's like a needle in a haystack, Stefan.

Damon: Nothing is important. Not anymore.

Damon: I have to go exploit some women in the name of grief.

Kelly Donovan: Oh God. Not on my couch.

Damon: Don't you have some papers to grade?
Alaric: It's, uh, more fun with a buzz.
Damon: Well, most things are. Sober is...depressing.

Alaric: You have a good afternoon.
Damon: Not likely.

Damon: You know...a room full of women clamoring to win a date with me? Sounds...tasty.

Elena: Stefan?
Damon: Better. Me.
Elena: You look, uh...
Damon: Dashing? Gorgeous? Irresistible?
Elena: Wrecked. You look wrecked.

Elena: So I found out who my birth mother is...
Damon: Ugh, who cares? (Elena glares) She left you. She sucks.

Elena: He's fine.
Stefan: He's Damon.
Elena: You know, maybe this heartache will be good for him. It'll remind him that he has one, even if it doesn't beat.

Carol Lockwood: And last but not least: Damon Salvatore. We don't have much on you.
Damon: Well, I'm tough to fit on a card.

Stefan: Elena...
Elena: He killed her? Damon was the vampire that killed her?!
Stefan: I don't know what happened. Alaric said that they never found the body.
Elena: Oh my God. Stefan...
Stefan: I know. I'm sorry. I wanted to tell you, but I just-- I wanted to know more.
Elena: I was feeling sorry for him. Hoping that this whole Katherine thing would change him. I am so stupid...
Stefan: He doesn't know about the connection to you. I thought about confronting him, but he's already so on-edge-
Elena: Why are you protecting him?!
Stefan: Because you're not the only one hoping that he might actually change.

Damon: (as Elena collides with him) Whoa! Easy there. Buy a ticket like everyone else.
Elena: Did you enjoy that? Rubbing it in to Alaric Saltzman?
Damon: What?
Elena: Just as I was starting to think that there was something redeemable about you.
Stefan: Elena...,
Damon: Am I missing something here?
Elena: Did I forget to mention, earlier when we were talking, about my birth mother? The one that 'gave me up'?
Damon: Mm-hmm.
Elena: Her name was Isabel. Go ahead...reminisce about how you killed her.

Alaric: You turned her because you 'liked her'?
Damon: No, I slept with her because I liked her. I turned her...because she begged me to.

Damon: (drives a stake through Alaric) Ah, this is a shame. We're kindred spirits, abandoned by the women we love. Unrequited love sucks. (pulls out stake)
Alaric: (gargles and gasps)
Damon: Hm. Sounds like I got a lung.

Stefan: What happened? What did you do?
Damon: Do what? He attacked me. I only told him the truth; his wife didn't want him anymore. Isn't my fault he couldn't...handle it.
Stefan: Like you've been handling Katherine?
Damon: I'm handling it fine. You know what? Isabel came to me, she found me, and if she's related to Elena, that means she's related to Katherine. Maybe Katherine sent her to me.

There Goes the Neighborhood [1.16][edit]

Anna (to newly released vampires): There are over one hundred and fifty channels. It's called a remote control.

Stefan: Have you thought any more about what you're going to do?
Elena: About what? Isobel, my vampire birth mother, who's related to my vampire ancestor Katherine, who screwed over your vampire brother? Nah, I haven't thought about it at all.
Stefan: I'm sorry I brought it up.
Elena: It'd just be nice if we could get through one day without having to deal with any of it. No vampire mother or brother.
Stefan: No vampires at all?
Elena: No vampires but you.

Matt: We can watch a movie at my place.
Caroline: With your mom and a six pack?
Matt: You know... You don't really help the situation. You could always try to be nice.
Caroline: Oh, I'm sorry. It's hard for me to show kindness to people that hate me. I'm not that evolved.

Pearl (talking to Harper): The keypad is for texting, which is what you do when you want to avoid talking to someone.

Damon: What exactly are you trying to achieve?
Pearl: Mystic Falls is our home, Damon. They took that from us. Our land, our home. It's time we rebuild.
Damon: What, are you crazy? It was 1864. Wake up, woman. The world has moved on.

Pearl (to Damon): I have four hundred years on you, little boy. I'll rip you from limb to limb without even blinking and you know it.

Elena: Have you ever even been on a double-date before?
Stefan: Oh, absolutely. '72, Heff and the twins.
Elena: What?
Stefan: Yeah...playmates. I got Miss June.

Jenna: Don't be grumpy. It can't be that bad.
Damon: You'd be surprised. My primary reason for existence has abandoned me, and after today's events, the remains of the shaky ground that I walk on are about to go 'kaboom.' (turns to Kelly) Let's get hammered.

Jenna: Hide. We're not here.
Kelly: Why? Where'd we go?
Jenna: Children under our care, five o'clock.

Matt: Is there anything you're not good at?
Stefan: Double-dating. This is all kind of new to me. I usually keep to myself. I don't always fit in.
Matt: That's because you're that guy.
Stefan: What guy?
Matt: The guy who seems like he has everything, so the people that don't kind of run the other way.
Stefan: Is that what I seem like?
Matt: Pretty much.
Stefan: Hmm... What a dick!

Caroline: (looking around the Salvatore mansion) This is much better than watching Damon visit cougar town.

Frederick: Vervain. Making it hard to find something to eat in this town.

Stefan: I remember them from 1864. They were in the tomb.
Damon: Yeah, about that...

Matt: Do you know what I was doing tonight, Mom? I was having fun, you know, trying to forget about all the crap that I have to deal with every day. Just enjoying a night with my friends. And then, there you are, wasted at the bar - where I work, by the way, to pay the bills that you don't pay. And then you're off acting like a freakin' kid, hooking up with some guy half your age. I'm the kid, Mom. You're supposed to be responsible for me.

Elena: How was your night?
Jeremy: Ah... Same old, same old. You?
Elena: Yep.

Anna: How did you know?
Jeremy: I knew this girl. Vicki. She was attacked by an animal; a bite to the neck. She started acting crazy, weird, and it seemed like drugs, but then you showed me those articles. And then I saw your face and how it changed the night in the cemetery when I kissed you.
Anna: You know you can't tell anyone, right?
Jeremy: Who would believe me?
Anna: You'd be surprised.
Jeremy: Why didn't you kill me?
Anna: I don't know. Maybe I'm a sucker for guys like you.
Jeremy: Like what?
Anna: Lost. Why would you confront me about it? Why would you risk it?
Jeremy: Because if it was true, maybe it's true about Vicki. And also because I want you to turn me.

Let The Right One In [1.17][edit]

Anna: I love storms.
Jeremy: Is that a vampire thing? 'Cause I read vampires don't like running water.
Anna: That's only Dracula. He was a complete wuss. Never showered...very smelly.
Jeremy: Seriously?
Anna: First rule about vampires: don't believe anything you read.

Anna: I'm not gonna turn someone who learned everything he knows about vampires from Netflix.

Pearl (to Frederick): We cannot live our lives about revenge.

Frederick: We should kill every last one of them.
Pearl: We are smarter than that, Frederick. These people are not our enemies. We don't hold grudges and resentments. We'll get our town back. We just have to have patience.
Frederick: You heard her - no revenge. Patience; self-control. She seems to have it all figured out, doesn't she?

Damon: I say we go to Pearl's and bust down the door and annihilate the idiot that attacked us last night.
Stefan: And then what? We turn to the rest of the house of vampires and say, 'Oops, sorry.'?
Elena: I can't believe you made a deal with her!
Damon: It was more like a helpful exchange of information. It's not like I had a choice. She's... scary. Besides, she's gonna help me get Katherine back.
Elena: Of course she is. Damon gets what he wants, as usual, no matter who he hurts in the process.
Damon: Well, you don't have to be snarky about it.
Elena: I woke up this morning to learn that all the vampires have been released from the tomb. I've earned snarky.
Damon: Ah... How long are you going to blame me for turning your birth mother in to a vampire?
Elena: I'm not blaming you, Damon. I've accepted the fact that you're a self-serving psychopath with no redeeming qualities.
Damon: Ouch.
Stefan: This isn't being very productive. We're gonna figure out a way to deal with Pearl and the vampires, yeah?
Elena: I'm sorry. He just makes me so cranky.
Stefan: I know...he makes everybody cranky.
Elena: So... What are we gonna do?
Stefan: Damon and I are gonna handle everything. I promise.
Elena: Well...what about me? I can't just sit here and do nothing.
Stefan: That's exactly what you're gonna do because that's what's gonna keep you safe.
Elena: Which means nothing if you're not safe too.
Stefan: What do you mean? I'm perfectly safe. I have Damon, the self-serving psychopath on my side.
Elena: That's comforting.

Jeremy: Does your mom know you're a...?
Anna: The fact that you would even think it's possible to keep something like that a secret from your own family is just further proof that you're not ready.
Jeremy: 'Not ready' is a step up from 'no'.
Anna: And a million steps down from 'maybe'.

Matt: I yelled at my mom last night. You know, I feel like the parent with the screwed up kid.
Caroline: Well, maybe she needed to hear it.
Matt: Yeah, but I worry that if I push too hard then she'll take off again, 'cause that's her M.O. Just like Vicki, who I haven't heard from since she left.
Caroline: Well, you can't control your mom, Matt, any more than you can control your sister.
Matt: I wish that she would just try, a little, you know. If she would just try to try, that would be okay.
Caroline: Maybe she'll surprise you. People have a tendency to do that. I should go before the roads get even worse from the storm.
Matt: Are you sure that you should be driving right now?
Caroline: I have to - it's my dad's boyfriend's daughter's birthday. We have a nontraditional traditional ritual.
Matt: Well, buckle up.

Damon: Hunting party?
Stefan: That guy did a number on me last night when he stabbed me. I've got to get my strength back up.
Damon: I have two liters of soccer mom in the fridge. (Stefan doesn't respond) No?
Stefan: We'll talk when I get back.
Damon: Alright... Give my regards to the squirrels.

Damon: You're ignoring me.
Elena: The six missed calls? Sorry. My phone's dead.
Damon: Is Stefan here?
Elena: No. Why? Is something wrong?
Damon: He went out in to the woods and didn't come back. I can't get him on his phone. I figured he was here with you.
Elena: (calls Stefan) It's going straight to voicemail. Where could he be?
Damon: You're not gonna like what I'm thinking.

Damon: Pearl, open this door or I swear I'll bust through and rip your head off.
Frederick: Pearl's not home. Mmm... Beautiful weather. Not a ray of sun in the sky.
Damon: Where's my brother?
Frederick: Billy? (Billy and another vampire drag Stefan into the room)
Damon: You are dead.
Frederick: I'm sorry you haven't been invited in. Miss Gibbons?
Miss Gibbons: Yes, Frederick, honey?
Frederick: Never let this bad man in.
Miss Gibbons: I'll never let him in.
Frederick: One hundred forty-five years left starving in a tomb, thanks to Katherine's infatuation with you and your brother. First few weeks every single nerve in your body screams with fire... kind of pain that can drive a person mad. Well, I thought your brother might want to get a taste of that before I killed him. Billy! (Billy stakes Stefan in the abdomen; Stefan falls to his knees in pain)
Frederick (to Damon): You have a nice day.

Damon: Well, don't you look alive?
Alaric: You can't hurt me.
Damon: Oh, I can hurt you, alright.
Elena: Mr. Saltzman, we need your help. Stefan's in the house; Damon's a vampire, he can't get in. We need you. I would go, but...
Damon: But your life is valuable. Yours, on the other hand, is...
Elena: Stefan told me about your ring.
Alaric: What about it?
Damon: Let me re-cap: You tried to kill me, I defended myself, you died, and - according to my brother - your ring brought you back to life. Am I leaving anything out?
Alaric: Yeah... The part where I try and kill you again, only this time I don't miss.
Elena: Mr. Saltzman... Please. It's Stefan.
Alaric: I'm sorry, Elena. It's not my problem.
Damon: That's a shame, 'cause the woman in charge of the crowd can help you find your wife.
Alaric: You're lying.
Damon: Am I? Why don't you ask her for yourself? (Alaric doesn't respond) Coward. Come on, Elena.
Alaric: All right. Wait. I'll go.

Jeremy: I wake up everyday and I feel okay. But there's something missing, like a hole. Some people, they fit in life or whatever. I don't.
Anna: So you want a pity turn? I don't think so.
Jeremy: You should turn me 'cause I don't have anything else.
Anna: Do you even know why we turn other people? It's not just to give someone a one-way ticket out of lonerhood, okay? One, we need someone to do our dirty work. Two, revenge. Three, boredom, but you know that never turns out well. And then, you know, there's the obvious one - you love someone so much that you would do anything to spend all of eternity with them. I'm sorry but you don't fit any of those categories yet.

Tyler: Be more creepy, dad. Not like your son is standing right here.
Mayor Lockwood: Grow up. Elections are coming. She's a constituent - and a rich one, from the looks of it.
Tyler: And you can tell all that by looking at her ass. Awesome. I'm gonna go shoot some pool.

Damon: Teacher by day, vampire hunter by night.
Alaric: I have you to thank for that.

Elena: Damon, now's not the time to be the Lone Ranger.

Damon: Oh, I understand. He's the reason you live. His love 'lifts you up where you belong.' I get it.
Elena: Can you just not joke around for two seconds?

Damon: Miss Gibbons, now tell me the truth. Are you married?
Miss Gibbons: No.
Damon: Parents? Children? Anyone else who lives on this property?
Miss Gibbons: No, it's just me.
Damon: No? Good. (Damon snaps Miss Gibbon's neck)
Alaric: You were supposed to compel her!
Damon: It doesn't work that way.
Alaric: She's human.
Damon: And I'm not, so I don't care! Now get out of here... and get rid of the body.

Pearl: I'm in the process of obtaining some property. I understand that your family is the largest property-owner in town.
Mayor Lockwood: Well, yes we are - dating all the way back to the town's original charter.
Pearl: Your family came in to a lot of new property in 1864.
Mayor Lockwood: You know your history.
Pearl: It's a passion of mine.

Tyler: The guy's not even subtle about it.
Matt: Who is that?
Tyler: It's not my mother.

Frederick: Billy, Jacob, get back in here.

Stefan: Thank you... for trying to help me.
Harper: They just needed somebody to blame; someone to punish.
(Elena enters the room)
Stefan: Elena. You shouldn't be here.

Damon (to Elena): You rescue, I'll distract. Go.

Damon: How many of those vervain darts do you have left?
Alaric: One.
Damon: Not gonna be enough.

Alaric: What you said to get me to do this, about my wife, was a lie, wasn't it?
Damon: Yep.
Pearl (from outside): Stop. What's going on here? (Pearl enters the house, looks around and then at Damon) What did you do?
Damon: Me? Your merry little band of vampires spent the day torturing my brother.
Pearl: Trust me. The parties responsible for this will be dealt with.
Damon: Our little arrangement doesn't work unless you learn to control them.
Pearl: This wasn't supposed to happen.
Damon: Well, it did. If I had a good side... not a way to get on it.

Elena: How are you doing?
Stefan: Ah, I'm okay. The wounds have mostly healed.
Elena: Good.
Stefan: Elena.
Elena: Yeah.
Stefan: What you did today, coming to help me... you could have been killed.
Elena: I know.
Stefan: And what I did... I'm sorry, I'm sorry that you had to see it.
Elena: I've just never... You were like this other person, and it's my fault. I made you...
Stefan: What? No, no, no, no. You didn't make me do anything. You were saving my life. And I was saving yours. Everything's gonna be okay.

Damon (to Alaric): That was fun. Oh, don't look at me like that. I know you hate me. Guess what? Everyone hates me. But you can't deny we were bad-ass.

Under Control [1.18][edit]

Damon: (shouting to be heard above the music) Could you turn it up a little bit? It's not annoying yet.
Stefan: Sorry.
Damon: When are you going back to school?
Stefan: Soon.
Damon: Oh, come on.(offers him glass of blood) Just drink, already. Come on. This self-detox is unnatural.
Stefan: Could you get that away from me, please?
Damon: How long did it take you to wean yourself off of it after you last "indulged"? (Stefan doesn't answer) That's not good.
Stefan: I'll be fine. It just takes a little bit of time.
Damon: I don't get it. You know you don't have to kill to survive. That's what blood banks are for. I haven't hunted a human in...God, way too long.
Stefan: Oh, I'm impressed.
Damon: It's completely self-serving - trying to get the town off the trail of vampires. Which is not very easy, considering there's an entire tomb of them running around.
Stefan: What are we planning on doing about that?
Damon: You're not gonna be doing much of anything if you don't have your strength. There's nothing wrong with partaking in a healthy diet of human blood from a blood bank. You're not actually killing anyone.
Stefan: I have my reasons.
Damon: Well, what are those holier than thou reasons, because, you know, we've never actually discussed that. You know, I'd love to hear this story.
Stefan: You're really enjoying this, aren't you? Just watching me struggle.
Damon: Very much so.
Stefan: I hate to break it to you, Damon, but I actually have it under complete control.
Damon: You do? Oh, well, then you should just carry on making the rest of us vampires look bad. Have a great day, Stef. (leaves the room, leaving his glass of blood on a side table; returns a moment later.) Oh, hey, almost forgot something. Oops.

John Gilbert: What's up with Jeremy?
Jenna: He just lost a friend, so try to be sensitive.
John: I'm always sensitive.
Jenna: Right. So, really, how long are you staying?
John: Can't you at least pretend that you're happy to see me?
Jenna: (acting perky and excited) Oh my god! John, it is so good to see you! How have you been? (drops the act) No, I can't.
John: Did you really think I was just gonna sign the escrow papers and send them back?
Jenna: Actually, I did.
John: I'm not gonna let you sell my brother's office.
Jenna: It's not up to you or me - it belongs to Jeremy and Elena.
John: They're minors, so I get the final say, being that I'm the estate's trustee.

Damon: He's a Gilbert?
Sheriff Forbes: Elena's uncle. His name is John, but I call him jackass.

John: The Gilberts have been a part of this town for 150 years. One of the founding families. Along with that distinction, comes certain obligations, including going to the party. One day, when you can appreciate the significance, I'll tell you all about your heritage.
Jenna: Mmm...'Gilbert family legacy.' I forgot how sacred it was. I'm not a Gilbert, so I was never cool enough to hear it.
Jeremy: Why does she hate you?
John: We used to sleep together.
Jenna: (throws a wrapper at him) I am standing right here!

Elena: Oh good, you're here.
Damon: You ask, I come. I'm easy like that.
Elena: Shh! (nods to her brother, who is oblivious to their conversation; points to the stairs)
Damon: (dramatically and loudly) No, Elena! I will not go to your bedroom with you! (chuckles as she drags him to the stairs)

Damon: (entering Elena's bedroom) Ah... Just like I remember.
Elena: Stop messing around.

Damon: You know, did you know that your uncle's been kickin' it with the Founder's Council?
Elena: What?
Damon: Yep.
Elena: Perfect. We'll just add it to the growing list of how everything's falling apart.

Damon: It is what it is, Elena. The Stefan you know is 'good behavior' Stefan; 'reign it in' Stefan; 'fight against his nature to an annoyingly obsessive level' Stefan. But if you think there's not another part to this, then you have not been paying attention. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
Elena: He is not you. Not even close.
Damon: Well, he's doesn't wanna be me. But that doesn't mean, deep down, that he's not.

Stefan: Oh God. I shouldn't be here.
Damon: Come on, don't be a downer. It's a party for the founding families - that would be us. It would be rude to skip it.
Stefan: You know, I really liked you a whole lot better when you hated everybody.
Damon: Oh, I still do. I just love that they love me.

Damon (to Stefan): Don't embarrass me, young man!

Kelly Donovan: Well, I guess dead kid rates a special greeting from the mayor, huh?

Elena: You're totally that drunk high school guy at the party sneaking booze.
Stefan: I totally am, yeah.

Damon: Have I entered an alternate universe where Stefan is fun?

Stefan: Please dance with your alcoholic vampire boyfriend.

Elena: Have you noticed what your brother's been up to?
Damon: Nope. I've been too preoccupied with yours. Jeremy's been asking questions about Vicki Donovan's death.
Elena: He knows that her death was ruled an overdose.
Damon: Really? (imitating Jeremy's voice) Oh, but Sheriff, someone buried her! Who would do that? (points to himself) I know! I know! Me. (pauses) I mean, I could compel him, but he's wearing vervain...
Elena: No - I don't want you to compel him.
Damon: If he keeps asking questions...
Elena: Damon, no! I'm serious! I'm not gonna do that to him again. I'll handle it.
Damon: (sighs) Okay. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Kelly (to Tyler): Is that soda? (grabs his glass and drinks)
Tyler: Uh...
Kelly: Vodka. Thank God...

John: So what do you think, Damon? You know this vampire problem is real, right? It's a potential bloodbath.
Damon: Oh, I wouldn't overreact, John.

John: ...I think it's like 1864 all over again. Vampires running amuck. (pauses) Guess we're just gonna have to hunt them down, throw 'em in a church, and burn them to ash.

John: You see, it seems that there was a tomb under the church, where vampires were hidden away - waiting for someone to come along and set them free. But then you already knew that, didn't you? Being that you're the one that did it.
Damon: And you're telling me this...why?
John: I just thought we'd get the introductions out of the way...
Damon: Look, well, you know I could rip your throat out before anyone would notice.
John: (nods) Right.
Damon: Yeah, okay. But you probably ingest vervain, so...
John: Why don't you take a bite, find out?
Damon: It's not worth my time.
John: (scoffs)
Damon: (chuckles) Hm. (pauses, then snaps his neck)

Damon: Do you wanna hear the bad news, or the really bad news?
Stefan: Actually, I don't want any news, Damon.
Damon: Alright, well, let me rephrase: do wanna hear how the council's back in 'vampire mode', or... how I just killed uncle John Gilbert?
Stefan: ...What?
Damon: Great party, by the way, huh?

Damon: (sees John Gilbert alive) You've got to be kidding me...

Damon: Look at his right hand.
Alaric: Whose?
Damon: Town's favorite son. Look at his ring.
Alaric: Wow. It looks like mine.
Damon: Yeah... And that'd be a big coincidence if he didn't just come back from the dead five minutes ago. Where the hell did you get that ring?
Alaric: Isobel, my wife.
Damon: Who gave birth to Elena, under the medical care of the esteemed Dr. Grayson Gilbert - John's brother!
Alaric: You think John knew Isobel?
Damon: I think John knows a lot of things.

Tyler: Dad, I don't know what happened. I was drinking, and I just lost it-
Mayor Lockwood: (viciously slaps him) That is the last time you embarrass this family.

Damon: Going somewhere?
John: Never liked to be the last one to leave a party. It's too desperate. You gonna kill me again, or you gonna let Mr. Saltzman do your dirty work?
Alaric: Okay. You obviously know who I am.
John: I do. Alaric Saltzman, the high school history teacher with a secret.
Damon: You sure know a lot for someone who just got to town.
John: More than you can imagine, Damon. My knowledge of this town goes beyond anything that you, or you, or the council, knows. So, if you were planning on some clever, high speed, snatch-ring vamp kill-move, know that if I die, everything I know goes to the council - including the fascinating little tale of the original Salvatore brothers and their present-day return to Mystic Falls.
Alaric: How did you get that ring?
John: I inherited one. My brother, Gray, the other. This was his, although I wouldn't have given mine to Isobel had I known she'd hand it over to another guy.
Damon: So you did know her?
John: Who do you think sent her your way when she wanted to become a vampire?
Damon: You sent her?
John: Guilty. Why? Did you think someone else sent her? Maybe Katherine Pierce?
Damon: How do you know about Katherine?
John: How do I know anything, Damon?
Damon: What do you want?
John: So many questions...

Elena: Talk to me, Stefan. Tell me.
Stefan: I tried so hard to keep it together tonight, and it was working. It was working. But then Matt's mom... she got hurt and she was bleeding and I had her blood on my hands.
Elena: And then what happened?
Stefan: The guy in the parking lot... I wanted to feed on him, and it took everything inside of me not to do it.
Elena: But you didn't?
Stefan: No, but I wanted to. Elena... my head is pounding. I feel like my skin is on fire. I have this hunger inside of me that I've never... I've never felt before in my entire life and I keep thinking about how I promised that I would never keep anything from you. So I'm telling you this.
Elena: It's okay. I need you to tell me these things.
Stefan: But I don't want you to see me like this. I don't want you to know that this side of me exists.
Elena: Stefan, you're gonna get through this. I'm gonna help you pull through. It's gonna be okay. You're gonna be okay.
Stefan: No, no, no, no. I'm sorry, I-- I can't. I'm afraid of what I could do to you.
Elena: I'm not. Stefan. Stefan? I'm not. I'm not, okay?
Stefan: I love you so much.
Elena: Oh, I love you, too.

Damon: We have a problem, Stefan. And when I say 'problem,' I mean global crisis. Seems Uncle John has a... (looks up at Stefan who is swaying on his feet) You don't look so good. (pauses) It's different this time, isn't it? The need is too strong. Of course it would be after all these years. (sets his glass of blood on the table) Have a good night, brother. (leaves)

Miss Mystic Falls [1.19][edit]

Stefan: I woke up this morning and I was feeling great and I figured it was time for me to get back in to things.
Elena: Does that mean you're okay, now, with all the cravings?
Stefan: Yeah. I mean, the worst part is over. So now, all I want to do is spend as much time with you as possible.

John: Meaning the vampire who stole the blood used mind control to hide the theft.
Damon: I know what she means.

John: I think we'll make a good team. Don't you, Damon?
Damon: John, whatever I can do to help keep this town safe. Even if it means spending time with you.

Alaric: This week we're gonna set aside our regular curriculum for a lesson in local history, as we approach Founder's Day. Apparently, the community leaders feel that's more important than World War II. But, hey, what do I know?

Damon: You were playing house with half of a tomb of really pissed-off vampires. What did you think was going to happen?
Anna: My mom is devastated. They tried to overthrow her.
Damon: Why isn't she here, telling me this?
Anna: She doesn't really do apologies.
Damon: Well, that's a coincidence, 'cause I don't do forgiveness.

Stefan: You're making small talk. Why?
Damon: You seem awfully chipper, lately. Less doom and gloom - a little more pep in your step...

Damon: Stefan, let's be serious for a second. You spent the last century and a half being a poster child for Prozac, and now you expect me to believe that this "new you" has nothing to do with human blood? Nothing?
Stefan: I'm clean.
Damon: You're lying!
Stefan: Believe what you want.

Damon: Well, well...he's a liar and a thief. So, when were you gonna share?
Stefan: Go ahead. Help yourself.
Damon: No, no, I'm talking about the fact that you're a closet blood junkie.

Damon: Just remember, we're trying to keep a low profile. Why don't you just walk up to Sheriff Forbes and ask her to tap a vein?
Stefan: Have my actions negatively impacted you? Whoo... I can't imagine what that must feel like.

Damon: You've been off the human stuff for years, Stefan. If you're having trouble controlling...
Stefan: I'm not having any trouble.
Damon: Who do you think you're talking to? I know what it's like! That "Jekyll and Hyde' feeling... There's that switch - sometimes it goes off and you snap...

Caroline: I'm on the M.F. beautification committee, I volunteer at the rec center soup kitchen...
Elena: I recognize that I haven't been as involved, this year, as I used to be...
Caroline: ...I implemented this year's Go Green campaign at school...
Elena: I've been distracted, and I let a lot of things slide...
A Girl: I don't think it's wrong for me to win two years in a row...
Amber Bradley: I was surprised to have been selected, since I'm not from one of the founding families...
Elena: ...but I'm aware of what an honor this is, and I want you to know that I take it seriously...
Caroline: ...worked with the county's recycling program and was in charge of the policemen's yearly raffle...
Tina Fell: ...just because my D.U.I. made my community service mandatory doesn't mean I was any less committed...
Elena: ...this was really important to my mother. She believed in community, family, honor, and loyalty. It's the legacy she left for me.

John: Hey, partner!
Damon: What do you want?
John: You haven't returned any of my calls.
Damon: Most people would take that as a hint.

John: I'll tell the entire council what you are.
Damon: Go for it! I'll kill every last one of them. Then I'll sever your hand, pull your ring off, and I'll kill you, too. Do you understand that?

Elena: This is ridiculous.
Stefan: You're only saying that because you don't know how to do it.
Elena: Sorry only one of us was around when the dance was invented.
Stefan: Ouch! (twirls Elena and dips)
Mrs. Lockwood: Oh - no! No, no, no. There's no touching during this part. It's about the simple intimacy of the near touch.
Stefan: If you ask me, the "near touch" is over-rated.

Caroline: And Amber Bradley is only on the court so the pageant doesn't look like it's founding families only, which, of course, it is. So that leaves Elena, and she totally has the sympathy vote, since her parents died. How can I compete with that?
Bonnie: Very nice. Very sensitive.

Anna: I remember this event from 1864. I was supposed to enter...before everything happened.
Damon: Ah, nostalgia's a bitch.
Anna: If you're just gonna mock me, could you move along, please?

Elena: Hey! You...can't be back here.
Damon: We need to talk.
Elena: Does it have to be right now?
Damon: Normally I would have a completely different outlook on what I'm about to tell you, but since it could really inconvenience me, I'll...squeal.
Elena: What are you talking about?
Damon: Stefan's still drinking human blood.
Elena: ...What?
Damon: Yeah. (shrugs) A month ago, I would've rejoiced. But with the council back on the alert, it is not a good time for Stefan to fly off the handle.
Elena: I know he's been a little edgy, but, he said that was normal...
Damon: He has a fridge, full of stolen blood bank contraband, in the house.
Elena: Oh my God...
Damon: He has no idea what normal is - his entire existence isn't normal. Normal to a vampire is drinking human blood, but he's spent all this time fighting it, when he should have been learning how to control it. And now it's controlling him, instead.

Anna: You were basically using me to turn you into a vampire so you could be with someone else.
Jeremy: No, I wasn't using you.
Anna: Really? Then how would you like to define it?
Jeremy: (scoffs) I don't think it's any worse than becoming friends with me so we could give your mother my blood.
Anna: How do you know that?
Jeremy: It's not important.
Anna: Seriously, Jeremy. What do you know?
Jeremy: Everything. I know everything.

Stefan: What's going on in here?
Damon: Just filling Elena in on your extra-curricular activities.
Stefan: (scoffs) What are you talking about?
Elena: I know about the blood, Stefan.
Damon: I'm gonna... I'll be downstairs. Drinking.

Jeremy: There's a part of me that's so angry that she covered up what happened to Vicki and erased my memory, but there's also this other part of me that's glad. I don't want to remember Vicki like that.
Anna: As a monster?
Jeremy: No. As someone who wanted to hurt me.
Anna: When I met you, you were just a part of my plan to get my mother back, but then things changed... all the time we spent together. I would never do anything to hurt you... not now. You know that, right?

Stefan: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm not very good to be around, right now. I'm a little bit on edge. I've been drinking the human stuff, and it's really screwing with my head. She knows now! She wasn't supposed to find out, I didn't want her to find out, now everything's ruined.
Amber: You seem sad.
Stefan: I'm not sad! I'm FREAKING. HUNGRY.

Stefan: I don't hurt people. I don't do that. I'm the good brother.
Amber: Do you want to hurt me?
Stefan: I want to kill you. I want to rip into your skin, and then I want to feed on your blood. Under your skin...pulsating, flowing. Your carotid artery...right there. If you puncture this just right, you can control the blood flow. Takes practice, but it doesn't have to make a mess. You don't have to waste any.
Amber: What's stopping you?
Stefan: If I do this...if I give in... then there's no going back.
Amber: Then don't.

Stefan: What's your name?
Amber: Amber.
Stefan: Listen to me, Amber. I need you to be afraid of me. I need you to run like hell, do you understand me?! Run. Run! Now!
Amber: (screams and runs)
Stefan: (runs after her and catches her)
Amber: (screams) I thought you said to run!
Stefan: I changed my mind. (feeds on her)

Damon: Alright, now this is getting weird...
Anna: We're here to talk.
Damon: Not in the mood! Today's been a no-good, very-bad day.

Stefan: You shouldn't be here.
Elena: I know.
Stefan: Now you know.
Elena: That wasn't you.
Stefan: Oh, it was absolutely me. A monster...a predator. It's who I am, Elena.
Elena: That's what the blood makes you.
Stefan: The blood brings out what's inside of me, and if you think any differently then you're an idiot!
Elena: I know this isn't you, Stefan.
Stefan: I wanted to drain every ounce of blood from that girl's body.
Elena: No...
Stefan: It's who I am, Elena!
Elena: No, you can't scare me off.
Stefan: Why would you risk it? Why would you come here?
Elena: Because I did this! This is my fault! I'm the one who made you drink the blood...
Stefan: All you did was expose me to who I really am!
Elena: This isn't you.
Stefan: STOP SAYING THAT! (tries to compose himself) Don't get any closer to me...
Elena: I'm not going to let this happen to you.
Stefan: Stop.
Elena: Stefan, I'm not going to give up on you. I believe in you...
Stefan: STOP! (slams her against the wall) Stop! (hits the wall behind her)
Elena: (gasps loudly)
Stefan: (realizing what he's done) I'm so sorry.
Elena: It's okay... It's okay...
Stefan: (sobs)... I don't know what's happening to me...
Elena: It's okay, Stefan.'s okay. It's okay. (starts crying) You're gonna be okay... (stabs him with a vervain tranquilizer)

Damon: Sure you wanna do this?
Elena: I'm sure.
Damon: (closes dungeon door) There's no guarantee this is gonna work.
Elena: It has to.
Damon: (starts to leave) Coming?
Elena: I'm gonna stay here. (sits, leaning against the wall)
Damon: (sits across from her)

Blood Brothers [1.20][edit]

Stefan: We don't have long.
Damon: (opens the door to the prisoner's cart) Katherine! Katherine?
(both brothers pull her out; Damon begins untying her)
Damon (to Katherine): We're gonna get you out of here.
Stefan: Damon, hurry. Hurry!
(Damon is suddenly shot from behind)
Stefan: No! No...
Damon: (gasps weakly; dies)
Stefan: Damon-
(Stefan is shot)

Elena: (referring to Stefan) It's so hard to see him locked up like this.
Damon: You're the one who locked him up.
Elena: You helped.
Damon: I couldn't have him running around chewing on people while the town was looking for vampires, now, could I?
Elena: It had nothing to do with you actually caring about him...
Damon: Your thing, not mine.

Damon: So, you'll be here again tonight?
Elena: Is that a problem?
Damon: Yes. You're a complete nuisance.

Elena: What's his favorite type-- um...
Damon: Type of what?
Elena: Type of...animal blood that he prefers?
Damon: Ewww. Gross.
Elena: Your joking doesn't help.
Damon: It helps me.
Elena: (chuckles)
Damon: Hurry up, I can't babysit all night. I've things to do.
Elena: I would say "drop dead", but...
Damon: Ha-ha. Stefan likes...puppy blood. Little Golden Retriever puppies with cute, floppy ears. That's his favorite.

John: I know you know.
Elena: Know what?
John: It's really silly to keep pretending. What do you think your mother would say if she knew you were dating a vampire?
Elena: Which mother?

Damon: The sun hurts my eyes.
Stefan: That's part of it. The muscle aches, the sick feeling. Emily says it's our bodies pushing us to feed; to complete the transition.
Damon: That's not gonna happen.
Stefan: Is that your choice, then? To die, instead?
Damon: Isn't it yours? This was all to be with Katherine. She's gone. I want it over.

Anna: Your uncle John wants us dead.
Jeremy: Oh, you don't know that.
Anna: Yes, I do. He's a hater, Jeremy.
Jeremy: Well, I'm not.
Anna: No. You're something else entirely.
Jeremy: Oh, yeah? What would that be?
Anna: My weakness.

Elena (about Damon and Alaric): Are you two friends now?
Damon: I don't have any friends, Elena.
Elena: Right.

Damon: Give me the address.
Alaric: What, so you can go without me? No, I don't think so.
Damon: I'm not going with you. You tried to kill me.
Alaric: Well, you did kill me.

Stefan: You're taking a stupid risk. I could hurt you.
Elena: Then I'm stupid.
Stefan: I don't want to survive... after what I've done, I just want it to be over.

Giuseppe Salvatore: (stands when Stefan appears in the doorway) Dear God...
Stefan: Even in our death, you only feel shame?
Giuseppe: You're one of them now...
Stefan: No. Father, I came to say goodbye.
Giuseppe: I watched you die...
Stefan: You were there when we were shot?
Giuseppe: I pulled the trigger myself.
Stefan: ...You killed your own sons?
Giuseppe: You were both dead to me the moment you sided with the vampires. I only thank God that your mother isn't alive to see the disgrace you've become.

Alaric: This was a real dead-end.
Damon: I wouldn't beat myself up over it, man. What did you think you were gonna find? Isobel with a cigar and slippers?
Alaric: (laughs) Oh man, I-- I gotta stop this. I can't keep searching for her.
Damon: Really? After only two years? That's actually...moderately healthy.
Alaric: What are you goin' on — a hundred and forty-six?
Damon: I figured the two hundred mark is probably a good stopping point.

Damon: She charmed me, your wife, Isobel. She talked a good game, man - she was smart. She had this excitement in her eyes... I probably should've known there was something different about her; some tie to Katherine. There had to be some reason I didn't kill her...
Alaric: That's enough, Damon, I don't wanna hear anymore. I just don't want to waste anymore of my life searching for answers I really don't want.

Damon: Ugh. God. You're still here?
Elena: Were you expecting anything else?
Damon: Nope. (sighs and takes a seat)
Elena: So, how was the "errand"?
Damon: Futile. Although I think I witnessed the teacher having an existential crisis. Has Stefan eaten yet?
Elena: I thought you didn't care.
Damon: Chalk it up to morbid curiosity.
Elena: I think he's getting there. But he's got a lot of guilt that he has to deal with, and it doesn't help that you've spent the last hundred and forty-five years punishing him for Katherine getting caught.
Damon: This is my fault now?
Elena: No, it's no one's fault, Damon, I'm're not exactly innocent. You've made it your life's mission to make him miserable.
Damon: (stands up) Let me ask you a question. In all this important soul-searching and cleansing of the demons of Stefan's past, did you ever manage to get the rest of the story?
Elena: He said there was more...
Damon: Yeah. That's an understatement.

Damon: From the moment Stefan had his first taste of human blood, he was a different person. I suppose I should thank him - it's been a hell of a ride.

Emily: You've transitioned.
Stefan: You'd have rather found me dead?
Emily: Katherine saved my life once. I owed her. But that doesn't mean I'd wish her curse on anyone.
Stefan: It feels more like a gift.
Emily: That will change.
Stefan: Why is that?
Emily: Because even in death, your heart is pure, Stefan. I sense that about you. That will be your curse.

Stefan: You don't understand, Elena.
Elena: Then tell me.
Stefan: It hurts me. It hurts me, knowing what I've done. And that pain - that pain is with me all the time. And every day I think that if I just...if I just give myself over to the blood, I can make that pain stop. It would be that easy. And every day I fight that. And I am so terrified that one day...I not going to want to fight that anymore more, Elena. And the next time I hurt somebody, it could be you.

Stefan: Thank you.
Damon: No, Stefan, thank you. You're back on Bambi blood, and I'm the big, bad-ass brother again. All's right in the world.
Stefan: No, I mean it. Thank you, for helping her take care of me.
Damon: You brood too much. Everything on this planet's not your fault - my actions, what I do, it's not your fault. I own them - they belong to me. You are not allowed to feel my guilt.
Stefan: You feel guilt?
Damon: If I wanted to. It's there.

Stefan: Why didn't you tell me?
Damon: 'Cause I didn't want you to know. 'Cause I hated you, and I still do.
Stefan: I know.
Damon: ...But not because you forced me to turn.
Stefan: Then why...?
Damon: (pause) Because she turned you, too. It was just supposed to be me, Stefan. Just me.

Isobel [1.21][edit]

Alaric: I loved you. How could I not search for you?
Isobel: Because I wasn't lost, Ric.

Alaric: Screw you, you selfish bitch.

Damon: You successfully cured him of anything interesting about his personality.
Elena: Remember who helped me.
Damon: I hate myself.

Caroline: Southern Classic Elegance.
Bonnie: Gone With the Wind?
Caroline: How'd you know?
Bonnie: You channel Scarlett daily.

Alaric: Damon. Thanks for coming.
Damon: Sorry I'm late. The dog ate my, uh...nevermind.

Damon: Did you ask her about uncle John? Are they working together?
Alaric: No.
Damon: No, they're not?
Alaric: No, I didn't ask.
Damon: What about the invention?
Alaric: Didn't ask.
Damon: Does she know about the tomb vampires?
Alaric: I don't know.
Damon: Did words completely escape you?
Alaric: No, I was a little too distracted by my dead vampire wife to ask any questions!

Alaric: She threatened to go on a killing spree.
Damon: Oh. I take it that's...not...okay with you guys?

Isobel: Your new boyfriend, over there by the pool table? Stefan Salvatore. Why Stefan? Why didn't you go for Damon? Or are you enjoying them both, like Katherine did?

Damon: We should be in there...
Alaric: No, Isobel made it clear we're not to step a foot inside.
Damon: I'm not going to kill her in a crowded restaurant.
Alaric: You're not going to kill her, period!

Alaric (to Damon): Hell, you're a dick and you kill people, but I still see something human in you.

Damon: You can turn it off. Like a button you can press. I mean, Stefan's different, he-- he wants the whole "human" experience. He wants to feel every episode of "How I Met Your Mother", so he shuts his feelings out. The problem is, as a vampire, your instinct is not to feel.

Damon: No guilt and shame. I mean, come on - if you could turn it off, wouldn't you?
Alaric: You haven't.
Damon: (scoffs) Course I have, Ric. It's why I'm so fun to be around.

Damon: (slams Isobel down on the floor by her throat) Now that I have your attention, listen up. You do not come into my town, threaten people I care about. Going after Elena? Bad move. You leave her alone or I'll rip you to bits, because I do believe in killing the messenger. And you know why? Because it sends a message. (picks her head up and slams it back into the floor)
Isobel: Unh!
Damon: Katherine wants something from me, you tell that little bitch to come get it herself.

Bonnie: Are you sure this is what Isobel wants?
Elena: Yeah, I'm sure. Why?
Bonnie: This is a weapon. Against vampires.

Elena: Why are you doing this?
Isobel: I'm showing you how easy it is for me to hurt the ones you love.
Elena: And you're doing this just because of Jonathan Gilbert's invention?
Isobel: Hand it over, and it will all stop.
Elena: I told you, Damon is not going to give it to me.
Isobel: I think you underestimate how much Damon cares about you.
Elena: He'll kill you before he gives it up.
Isobel: Is that before or after I kill your brother, Jeremy?

Damon: I like being a living dead person

Damon: Are you even up for this? I mean, no offense, you're no Emily Bennett. Emily knew what she was doing.
Bonnie: I've been practicing.
Damon: It's not piano lessons, honey.

Isobel: Don't look for any redeeming qualities in me. I don't have any.
Elena: But you took a risk with Damon. How did you know that he was going to give the device to me?
Isobel: Because he's in love with you.

Elena: Thank you.
Isobel: For what?
Elena: For being such a monumental disappointment. It keeps the memory of my real mother perfectly intact.

Isobel: As long as you have a Salvatore on each arm, you're doomed.

Isobel: What did you expect? You spent all this time trying to track me down. What did you think you would find?
Alaric: The woman who gave me this. (raises his eternity ring) I mean, you act like you don't care - but you cared enough to protect me after you left.
Isobel: I was a different person back then.
Alaric: Right! And that person is "gone". The woman I married, the woman I loved, she's just...she's "gone". (throws the ring at her) You expect me to believe that? (throws his vervain on the floor)
Isobel: What are you doing?
Alaric: Well, I'm ring-free, I'm vervain-free. So either kill me or compel me, because I don't believe it. Not for a second.

Stefan: Well, I know that you and Elena have bonded, and I know that she cares about you, and...I know you care about her.
Damon: Well, this is going in an interesting direction.

Stefan: I'm just concerned about Elena being hurt. She considers you...a friend.
Damon: Same here. Elena is a very good friend. Actually, she might qualify as my only..."friend."

Stefan: So, at the risk of sounding like, a jealous boyfriend...
Damon: Oh, there's no risk. You do.

Stefan: History will not be repeating itself where Elena is concerned. Do you understand what I'm saying?
Damon: Sure, sure.

Damon: Am I the only one around here who has the ability to put two and two together? Isobel! Helloooo! She dated John when she was 15; she gets pregnant, and ends up in the doctor's office of John's brother. Now, what do you think John's role is in all this? I mean, go ahead and think about it, I'll wait. (pauses) Did you get it? You there yet?
Stefan: So you think that John is Elena's father?
Damon: Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!
Stefan: What proof do you have?
Damon: I don't need any proof - that's a DNA test for John, Elena, and Maury Povich to deal with. But I know how well you deal with these big "bombshells", so... Sleep tight.

Founders Day [1.22][edit]

Stefan: What are you doing here?
Damon: Why wouldn't I be here? It's Founder's Day! I'm here to eat cotton candy and steal your girl.
Stefan: Don't start with me, Damon.
Damon: Oh, you started it, Stefan, with the whole "I'm insecure, leave Elena alone" speech. I'm just enjoying that.
Stefan: As long as you heard it.
Damon: (pretends not to hear him) Huh? What?

Damon: I get it. I'm the better, hotter, superior choice and you're scared, now that Katherine is out of the picture, that I'm gonna turn all my attention to Elena.

Anna: It's my blood. If you die with it in your system, you'll come back.
Jeremy: Anna...
Anna: I know you, what it's like for you...being alone, always feeling empty inside, no one to understand. But when you're a vampire, you don't have to feel that way! You can shut it off. I can show you how.

Elena: I have enough problems with the family that I actually care about. Jeremy hates me - and why wouldn't he? My journal gave him every single reason to.
Stefan: He's just hurt, he's confused.
Elena: He's never going to forgive me for Vicki, for taking away his memories, for lying to him...
Stefan: He's your brother, he'll forgive you. Just give him some time.

Tyler (talking about Matt): I said I was sorry!
Caroline: You made out with his mother and then you beat him to a pulp. You're gonna have to do a little bit better than "sorry."

Damon: I wanna say something to you.
Bonnie: Just leave me alone.
Damon: Thank you. The device in Emily's spell could have killed me. I don't take what you did lightly, so... thank you.
Bonnie: (nonplussed) I did it for Elena.
Damon: I know that, but I'm still very grateful. And... I owe you.

Damon (to normally-dressed Elena): I like you better like this. The period look, it...didn't suit you.
Elena: Is that an insult?
Damon: Actually, Elena, it is a compliment of the highest order.

Elena: So, I think you should stop with the flirty little comments and that...eye thing that you do.
Damon: (quirks his eyebrows) What "eye thing"?

Elena: I lied; I was wrong. But you're my brother, Jer, and I love you, and I have to fix it. So just tell me, what can I do?
Jeremy: You can go to hell, Elena.

Damon: (mockingly) I have so many emotions, but I don't have any way to express them. Being a teenager is so hard!
Jeremy: You're a dick!
Damon: (grabs him) You do not talk to me like that. I'm not your sister. And from now on, don't talk to your sister that way, either.
Jeremy: So, you're going to kill me just because I hurt Elena's feelings?
Damon: Cut her some slack!
Jeremy: She erased my memories.
Damon: No, I did. She was protecting you.
Jeremy: It wasn't her call to make.
(Damon grabs him)
Jeremy: Let go of me before I cause a scene.
Damon: You'd be unconscious before you even got a word out.

Stefan: Elena's relationship with her brother is none of your business, so stay out of it.
Damon: Oh, there's only one do-gooder, hero role available? My bad, I'm sorry.
Stefan: Get over yourself. We both know that you're not doing this for the right reasons.
Damon: See, there you go with that little jealousy act again. It's just, what are the right reasons, Stefan? I mean, enlighten me! Please!
Stefan: See, Damon, it's only real when it comes from your desire to do the right thing for nothing in return.
Damon: Right...
Stefan: Yeah, and I know that that is an entirely foreign concept to you. I completely understand that you wouldn't get it.

Damon: You keep those nifty little vamp weapons in your car?
Alaric: Yeah, why do you ask?
Damon: Because this square is crawling with tomb vampires. I think we might need a stake or two.

Elena: What are you doing?
Damon: Saving your life, in 15 words or less. Tomb vamps are here, founding families are their target. (to Stefan) Get her out of here, now!
Stefan: Wait, where are you going?
Damon: That's more than 15 words, Stefan.

Damon: Mayor? Is that you?
Mayor Lockwood: What are you doing here?!
Damon: I'm a vampire. What's your excuse?

Stefan (about Damon): I try so hate him. I guess it's just pointless.

Bonnie: We both wanna protect the people we care about. This difference is, for you, Damon is one of them. You saw what I was able to do tonight. I know who I am now. And if Damon spills so much as one drop of innocent blood, I`ll take him down — even if I have to take you with him.

Damon: I saw her killed. I was watching and all I could think about was...I wanted to help her. But I couldn't.

Jeremy: Anna said that vampires don't have to feel pain; that they could turn it off if they shut out their humanity.
Damon: It's very true.
Jeremy: Is it easier that way?
Damon: Is what easier?
Jeremy: Life.
Damon: Life sucks either way, Jeremy. At least if you're a vampire, you don't have to feel bad about it if you don't want to.

Damon: You know, I came to this town wanting to destroy it. Tonight I found myself wanting to protect it. How does that happen? I'm not a hero, Elena. I don't do good. It's me.
Katherine (pretending to be Elena): Maybe it is.
Damon: No. No, it's reserved for my brother, and you, and Bonnie... who, even though she has every reason to hate me, still helped Stefan save me.
Katherine: Why do you sound so surprised?
Damon: Because she did it for you. Which means that somewhere along the way, you decided that I was worth saving. I wanted to...thank you, for that.

John: You know I first met Isobel when I was a teenager. I fell in love with her instantly, although I`m pretty sure she never loved me. She was special. Part of why I hate vampires so much is because of what she became. How it ruined her. And I never would`ve sent her to Damon had I known she wanted to turn. It`s my fault. I`m telling you this because I hope maybe you`d understand.

John: Katherine?!
Katherine: Hello, John. Goodbye, John. (stabs him)
