Behind the Scenes
- "Don't It Just Break Your Heart" is a song by Jeff Young.
- Elijah: "You were right."
- Antoinette: "About?"
- Elijah: "The feeling after sundown without the ring. It's just most transcendent joy."
- Antoinette: "I'll take credit for most of that joy, thank you very much. Behind you, in the corner, don't look. He was in the bar earlier. You think it's your family again?"
- Elijah: "I think we ought to introduce ourselves. Ladies first. Well, somebody's been busy. Busy watching you."
- Elijah: "I wouldn't argue with this fool. He's not listening to a single word you say, he's simply waiting for you to draw breath. So that he might pontificate anew."
- Klaus: "I believe you're thinking of my brother, Elijah. He's the pompous controlling one."
- Elijah: "Interesting. I'd always heard that Elijah was the enigmatic and charming one, the truly distinguished element of the family."
- Elijah: "Fifty werewolves killed in Stäbelow. I prefer the eighty in Wittenberg, a dozen massacres all within twenty miles of where we sit, Klaus."
- Vampire: "Look, I don't know anything."
- Klaus: "Well, that's a pity for you then."
