Lexi: "How could you even ask that?" (hugs him)
Stefan: "I've missed you!"
Lexi: "Happy birthday!"
Lexi: "That's it, Damon. After a century I finally realized, death means nothing without you. Do me!"
Damon: "Why are you so mean to me?"
Lexi: "Um, have you met you? You're not a nice person."
Damon: "Well, because I'm a vampire."
Lexi: "But, you're only the bad parts."
Damon: "Teach me to be good."
Lexi (starts to choke him): "I'm older, and that means stronger."
Damon (chokes): "I'm sorry."
Lexi: "Don't ruin my time with Stefan, 'cause I'll hurt you, and you know I can do it."
Damon: "Deal!"
Bonnie: "Are you up?"
Elena: "No. (covers her head/Bonnie uncovers her head).... No, no!"
Bonnie: "Why haven't you called me back?"
Elena: "I'm sorry..."
Bonnie: "Are you gonna stay there forever?"
Elena: "Yeah..."
Bonnie: "Move over! (lies next to Elena) I'm officially worried. What's going on?"
Elena: "I'm tired of thinking, of talking..."
Bonnie: "Can we make it a one line version, so I can at least pretend to be helpful?"
Elena: "Stefan and I broke up."
Jeremy: "Want to keep it down over there?"
Jenna: "Why, what are you doing?"
Jeremy: "Homework."
Elena: "Since when do you do homework?"

Elena: "You haven't given him a lot of reasons to be happy lately."
Damon: "Oh, you're right. Poor Stefan. Persecuted throughout eternity by his depraved brother. Does it get tiring, being so righteous?"
Elena: "Hmph. It flares up in the presence of psychopaths."

Stefan: "Why are you trying to save him? Elena, he's never gonna change. Don't you see that? He's never gonna change."
Elena: "I'm not trying to save him, I'm trying to save you. You have no idea what this will do to you. Please, Stefan."
Stefan: "Everywhere that I go, pain and death follow. Damon follows me. No more."
Caroline: "Do you ever feel like there's not a person in the world who loves you?"
