Promise me something, both of you. Write it all down, everything that you accomplish in your lives, every crush, when you fall in love, when you start a family, every time you fantasize about wanting to kill Damon. Write it down so that one day when I wake up I can read all about my best friends' lives and feel like I was there.
Elena to Caroline and Bonnie in I'm Thinking Of You All The While

This is the sister-like relationship between the cured vampire/human doppelgänger Elena Gilbert, the vampire Caroline Forbes, and the witch Bonnie Bennett.

Elena and Bonnie were originally best friends, while Caroline was closer to Bonnie, mainly due to being jealous of Elena. After Caroline's transformation into a vampire, her friendship with Bonnie deteriorated for a short time, but Elena was there for her, strengthening their friendship. Bonnie later accepted Caroline the way she was, and they quickly rekindled their close friendship. Unfortunately, on the night before graduation, Bonnie desperately attempted to bring Elena's brother Jeremy back to life using spirit magic, dark magic, and Expression magic all at the same time, and ultimately died from overuse of magic. Not wanting to hurt Caroline and Elena, Bonnie, as a ghost, forced Jeremy to keep her death a secret for the entire summer. Because the veil was down when Bonnie died, Bonnie was able to graduate with her friends with no one else the wiser. Once Caroline and Elena learned of Bonnie's death, they worked tirelessly to find a way to bring her back, eventually convincing a witch to give Bonnie the power to be the Anchor to the Other Side, allowing her to be a corporeal ghost so she could continue to live as a normal human would, though she also acted as a tollbooth to the Other Side, which brought complications.

After Markos tore his way out of The Other Side, it began falling apart, which not only threatened the residents of the supernatural purgatory with permanent extinction, but also Bonnie, as the Anchor. Once again, Bonnie attempted to keep Elena and Caroline from knowing about her imminent demise, though they eventually did find out and tried their best to stop her. In the end, they failed, as the Other Side completely collapsed and destroyed itself, taking Bonnie and Damon into 1994 Prison World.

After the events in Season Five, Elena and Caroline struggled to move on without Bonnie and Damon, however, Damon came back during Season Six, thanks to Bonnie. This motivated Elena, Caroline, and the rest of their friends to help bring Bonnie back from the Prison World Bonnie was stuck in. Eventually, Bonnie got out of the Prison World and reunited herself with Elena and Caroline shortly after reuniting herself with Damon first. Bonnie was surprised to find Caroline with her humanity off due to the death of her mother, but this barely effected their friendship and it more so effected and strained Elena and Caroline's friendship. Caroline finally turned her humanity back on after some help from Stefan, Elena, and Damon. Things were starting to look up, until Kai Parker came back with the new group of Heretics, witch-vampire hybrids that were brutal killers sent to another Prison World nearly a century ago. Due to Kai Parker wanting revenge on Bonnie for leaving him in another Prison World with the Heretics earlier in Season Six, Kai spelled Elena into a lifelong slumber and linked her life to Bonnie. When Bonnie dies a natural death, Elena would awaken. However, any spell or loophole Bonnie or the others tried to wake Elena up, it would kill both Bonnie and Elena. This forced Bonnie, Caroline, and the others to say goodbye to Elena. Caroline and Bonnie were forced to carry on without their best friend, Elena, during Season Seven.

At the end of Season Eight, Elena awakens from her sleeping curse. After Elena awakens, she is reunited with Bonnie and Caroline. Shortly after their reunion, the three are separated again being Bonnie decides to travel the world on her own.

If she drops the veil, then ALL the supernatural creatures who’ve ever died since the Other Side was created will be back, including Grams and Jeremy. Shane told Bonnie she would do this.

Elena: So then nothing.
Caroline: You and Stefan talked all night? There was no sloppy first kiss or touchy feely of any kind?

Caroline: Go away!
Elena: Unf.
(Elena lands on the floor and looks back up at Caroline, angrily. She crawls across the floor towards her phone and takes it off the dresser)
Elena: [answers phone] Hello?
(Caroline and Bonnie look over at Elena from Caroline's bed, both incredibly annoyed with being awaken)
Bonnie: Shhh.
Caroline: Elena!
(Elena drags herself out of Caroline's room and continues her conversation in the hallway)
-- Crying Wolf

(Elena, Bonnie and Caroline are in the kitchen)
Caroline: Chinese food or pizza?
Elena: Like you have to ask.
Caroline: I will get it.
(She takes her iPad and sees a picture of her with Matt)
Bonnie: I'll do it.
(She takes the iPad)
Elena: Do you believe that Jonas is being sincere?
Bonnie: I don't know what to believe. I think he's at a loss. He's not sure who to trust.
Elena: Join the club.
Caroline: Well, what are we going to do about this movie situation? What about "The Notebook"?
Elena: Caroline, how many times have you seen that movie?
Caroline: That is so not the point.
Elena: Well, yeah, I mean...
(Jenna enters the kitchen)
Elena: Hey.
Jenna: What's going on?
Elena: Girls' night.
Jenna: Oh.
Elena: How are you doing?
Jenna: You heard about my fight with Rick.
Elena: He feels terrible.
Jenna: Is this some kind of disguised attempt to cheer me up?
(Elena looks at the girls)
Elena: No. No, this is about us girls hanging out and you know, we'll be here if you happen to want to talk, or...
Caroline: Because I am a winner when it comes to successful relationships.
Jenna: You, too?
Caroline: You have no idea.
Jenna: Ok, then.
(She rejoins them and opens the fridge)
Jenna: It's this whole Isobel thing. He's hiding something from me.
Caroline: To play devil's advocate, maybe there is a great reason why he's not telling you. Maybe he is just trying to protect you.
Jenna: Well, that's not his call to make. I mean, I deserve the truth. Everybody does.
Caroline: Sometimes it's harder than that.
Jenna: Not if it's somebody you care about, it isn't.
Caroline: You know what we need? Dancing. There is a band at the grill.
Bonnie: I'm in.
Jenna: In.
Elena: In.
(Elena, Bonnie, Caroline and Jenna arrive and look at the band. Jenna sees Alaric.)
Jenna: I need a drink.
(She goes to the bar. Matt is next to them.)
Caroline: Hey, Matt.
(He doesn't answer)
Bonnie: Things just got real awkward.
(Elena; Caroline and Bonnie are listening to the band)
Bonnie: He said the ball's in your court
Caroline: Yeah, but I can't do anything about it.
Bonnie: Why not? All you do is talk about how much you care about him.
Caroline: Yeah, but I am still keeping so many secrets.
Elena: Alaric's in the same boat with Jenna and maybe that's our mistake. We're trying to protect the people that we love by keeping them out of it, but in the end, we're hurting them anyway.
(Caroline takes off her jacket and goes to the stage)
Elena: What are you doing? Where are you going?
(She goes on the stage and takes the microphone)
Caroline: Hey, everybody. Let's hear it for the band! Weren't they awesome? So there's this guy. And, uh, he told me to tell him how I feel about him. Like it's so easy. Um, you know, just 'cause I talk a lot doesn't mean I always know what I'm actually talking about. Ah, like now, I'm feeling loopy and I don't really know how to express myself. I can sing. Yeah! Yeah. You know what, I'm going to sing.
(Bonnie, Jenna, and Elena all look baffled.)
Elena: Sing?
-- The House Guest

Caroline: I come bearing gifts!
Elena: Please say that's not chili...
(Bonnie comes in)
Elena: Bonnie!
Bonnie: I'm back!
(They embrace each other)
Bonnie: I leave town for the summer and everything goes to hell for the both of you.
(Caroline and Elena look at each other. Jeremy goes down the stairs)
(Elena, Caroline and Bonnie are in the kitchen)
Bonnie: The problem with my dad's normal side of the family is normal made for a really boring summer.
Caroline: After the last few days, I would kill for a normal family.
(She helps Elena decant the Chili in a casserole)
Caroline: Since when did you learn how to cook?
Elena: Damon helped a little.
Bonnie: Damon's helping you cook now?
Elena: Both of you stop judging. He's just trying to be a good... ow!
Caroline: Ahh! Did I splash you?
Elena: No, no, my necklace.
(She takes it. Her skin has burn)
Elena: It burned me.
Caroline: Maybe it's a sign you shouldn't be wearing it.
Bonnie: Caroline...
Caroline: What, I'm just saying. If you're going to be "cooking" without Stefan.
Bonnie: Let me see it.
(Elena and Caroline are sitting apart from the party on a bench. Bonnie rejoins them with her grimoire)
Bonnie: I have an identification spell that might be able to tell me what magic affected the necklace.
(Elena gives her her necklace)
Bonnie: It's going to take a while, so tell me if anyone's coming, ok?
(Caroline looks at Elena)
Caroline: So you're not, like, switching Salvatore's, are you?
Elena: What?
Bonnie: Caroline...
Caroline: Stay focused.
(She looks back at Elena)
Caroline: As your friend who worries for you daily, what is the deal with you and Damon?
Elena: There is no deal. He's been just as focused on finding Stefan as I have.
Caroline: Yeah, but that doesn't make him any less Damon. If my own father, who I love dearly, can't change me. No one's changing Damon. Not even you.
Elena: Look, why are we even talking about this?
Bonnie: Hey guys.
(The necklace is levitating)
Caroline: What are you doing?
Bonnie: I'm not doing anything. It has its own magic.
(Caroline and Bonnie look at Elena)
-- Disturbing Behavior

Caroline: Ohh! Oh, come on! Seriously?! Do you know how long it took for us to set all this up?!
Tyler: Forgot about senior prank night, huh?
Matt: Clearly.
Caroline: How could you forget? We've only been waiting for this since like freshman year.
Elena: Yeah, Matt. If I'm doing this, you're doing this.
Matt: I'm kind of surprised any of you are doing this.
Bonnie: Caroline's making us.
Caroline: We're about to be seniors. These are the memories that will stay with us forever, and if we don't...
Elena: And if we don't create these memories now, then what's the point of it all?
Caroline: Go ahead and make fun, I don't care.
Tyler: You're all lame. And I've got ten more classrooms to prank.
(He takes his bag and leaves. Elena's about to leave too)
Bonnie: Hey! Where are you going?
Elena: To superglue Alaric's desk shut. I'm making memories.
(She smiles. Caroline smiles too)
Caroline: I love you!
(Elena goes out of the classroom and sees Tyler giving instructions to other students)
-- The Reckoning

(Elena, Caroline and Bonnie are in front of the school. Elena has a scarf around her neck)
Caroline: Here we are. Senior year.
Bonnie: Anyone else think it should feel slightly more empowering?
Caroline: Okay. So prank night was a bust. But we are accepting it, and we are moving on.
Bonnie: You're right. I mean, why should I let the fact that my boyfriend is seeing the ghost of his dead girlfriends hinder this experience?
Caroline: Yes! And why should I let the fact that my boyfriend was turned into a hybrid put a damper on an otherwise fabulous day.
Elena: Today's our anniversary. Technically, Stefan and I met on the first day of school last year.
Caroline: Yeah. You win.
Bonnie: Are you sure you want to be here?
Elena: I have to be here. I have to put it behind me. New year. New life.
(Caroline and Bonnie look at each other and follow Elena)
-- Smells Like Teen Spirit

(Caroline walks into her house and puts her stuff down. All of a sudden Elena, Matt, and Bonnie jump out with balloons, party hats, and a sign. They yell surprise.)
Matt: Happy birthday!
Caroline: What are you guys doing here?
Elena: Well you blew off school and missed our work of birthday art, so...
Bonnie: Change into warmer clothes, we are going to the Falls. S'mores, camp fire..
Elena: Cake! Like when we were little.
Matt: Except for the tequila! (sing-songs)
Caroline: Thanks, guys. Really, I'm just not feeling my birthday this year.
Bonnie: I'm sorry, what? You've already claimed your birthday as everyone's favorite day of the year.
Caroline: Yeah, and now, it's just a reminder that technically, I'm dead. [beat] Look, I didn't even like 17. And the only point to being 17 is to get to 18. It's a filler year; I'm stuck in a filler year.
Elena: You're not stuck, Caroline.
Caroline: Yeah I am, but it's okay. You know, it's all good, I'll be fine. But I just need some time to wallow in it.
Elena: Okay, well I think I have another idea.
(Caroline, Elena, Bonnie, and Matt enter the crypt.) ELENA: There it is!
Bonnie: This is creepy, even for us.
Elena: No, Caroline was right... technically, she's dead. Sorry. But you don't need a birthday, you need a funeral. You need to say goodbye to your old life, so that you can move on with your new one.
Caroline: Okay. [takes a beat] Here lies Caroline Forbes--
Elena: --Cheerleader, Miss Mystic Falls, third grade hopscotch champion...
(Elena sticks candles into Caroline's birthday cake with each word she speaks.)
Bonnie: ...friend, daughter, overachiever...
Matt: ...Mean girl, sometimes, no offense.
Caroline: Ah, none taken.
Elena: She was 17, and she had a really good life. So rest in peace, so that she can move forward. That's what you really need. What we all really need. [beat] Amen, or cheers or whatever. Bonnie?
(Bonnie lights the candles with her powers.)
Elena: Nice! Okay, make a wish.
(She holds the cake out to Caroline, who closes her eyes and makes a wish.)
(Elena, Bonnie, Matt, and Caroline are eating the cake. Matt takes the bottle of tequila from Bonnie, but Elena snatches it from his hand and drinks.)
Elena: Ah-ah. I need it more than you do, trust me. Caroline, what are you doing?
Caroline: (stops texting and tries to act natural) What? Nothing.
Elena: Okay, you're a bad sober liar; you're an even worse drunk liar.
Caroline: I might have texted Tyler.
Elena: Caroline...
Caroline: What? I'm delicate.
Bonnie: Give her a break! You can't control what everyone does all the time.
Elena: Wow.
Matt: Ouch, Bon.
Bonnie: Sorry, I know it's Caroline birthday, funeral or whatever but, I just feel it's really wrong that you compelled Jeremy to leave town.
Elena: I'm doing it to protect him, Bonnie. I want to give him a chance to have a quiet normal life.
Bonnie: He should be able to choose how he wants to live it, you're taking his choices away.
Elena: Bonnie, you can't tell him.
Bonnie: Why? Are you gonna compel me not to?
Matt: You know, you guys are ruining a perfect funeral.
Bonnie: I'm sorry. I'm just gonna go sleep it off or something. Happy birthday. :(She leaves)
-- Our Town

(Bonnie is burning sage, while Elena talks to her.)
Elena: He was gloating. Like actual gloat. Like he was proud of himself for sleeping with her. Is it working?
(Caroline enters the room.)
Caroline: It's not working. I can hear every word you’re saying about Damon, the vampire gigolo.
Bonnie: I don't know, it’s a tricky spell.
Elena: When Esther did it, she kept the sage burning. There was a lot more smoke.
Bonnie: Alright. (Bonnie relights the sage.) Try it again.
(Caroline scoffs and leaves the room again.)
Bonnie: Speaking of Esther, you should know that she came to see me and Abby this morning.
Elena: And all this time you let me vent about Damon?
Bonnie: I don't want you to worry.
Elena: Okay, well, what did she want?
Bonnie: She wanted to introduce herself. Abby and I helped bring her back. She’s channeling our entire ancestral bloodline for power. I think she thought she was being polite.
Elena: Okay, well, is there a way to stop her from channeling you?
Bonnie: Even if there was, why would I want that?
Elena: I just keep thinking…. Before the sun and the moon ritual, Elijah found a way to keep me alive. And now I’m in exactly the same position and I’m just gonna let him die? It just doesn't feel right.
(Caroline re-enters the room.)
Caroline: Okay. First of all, this privacy spell is totally not working. Second. Elena, you are not doing this, Esther is doing this.
Bonnie: There’s no time to change your mind, Elena. He’ll be dead by the end of the night.
Elena: What?
Bonnie: It’s a full moon. Esther needs to harness the energy of a celestial event. She asked me and Abby to join her.
-- All My Children

(Elena’s phone rings, she answers it.)
Elena: Caroline?
Caroline: So, Abby thinks Bonnie can reverse the damage of the spell. I guess this same thing happens to witches who get obsessed with dark magic. They lose control and start acting out their darkest impulses.
(Elena gets up and walks away from the table.)
Elena: Thank you so much.
Caroline: I’m gonna hang back here with Abby, but Bonnie’s leaving now, so….
(Bonnie walks up to Caroline and silently asks to talk to Elena on the phone.)
Caroline: Hold on.
(Caroline hands Bonnie her phone and goes to help Abby pack up some herbs. Bonnie takes a deep breath and starts to talk to Elena.)
Bonnie: I need a personal effect of Alaric’s, something he wore before he started wearing the ring.
Elena: Okay, yeah, I- I'll get it. Bonnie, I’m so sorry for everything, thank you for doing this.
Bonnie: Be ready to do the spell as soon as I get there. We have to work fast. I’ll see you soon.
(Bonnie hangs up very quickly.)
-- Break On Through

(Elena is walking down the hallway. Bonnie and Caroline are at their lockers and see Elena approaching.)
Bonnie: Elena, hey. Is everything okay?
Elena: Yeah. Why wouldn't it be?
Bonnie: Well, Caroline told me you had to move out to stay away from Jeremy.
Elena: Matt is at the house staying with him right now to make sure he keeps all of his hunter stuff in control. He's OK.
Caroline: But are you? I mean, clearly, they don't have a flat iron at hotel Salvatore.
Elena: Oh -- I was in a rush. I mean -- look, do you girls have any plans tonight? I'm in desperate need of some girl talk.
Bonnie: I'm in. Shane taught me some small spells I've been wanting to try.
Caroline: Oh, creepy Professor Guy is just Shane now.
Bonnie: He's not creepy.
Elena: We're not judging.
Caroline: I am.
Elena: Don't listen to her. So, girls' night? We can raid the Salvatore wine cellar.
Caroline: Um, are you sure that Stefan and Damon are cool with us crashing at their place?
Elena: (She catches sight of Damon walking in the school, him motioning for her to talk to him.) I can't go home because my brother is trying to kill me. So their place is mine now, too. I'll see you in a bit.
(Elena walks away to meet Damon with Caroline and Bonnie looking on.)
(Elena has brought a wooden crate into the parlor filled with wine bottles.)
Elena: One for you.
(She takes one of the bottles out and hands it to Bonnie who accepts it.)
Elena: One for you.
(She hands another bottle to Caroline who takes it as well.)
Caroline: Ooh.
Bonnie: I'm assuming this is for Caroline.
(Bonnie holds up a bloodbag. Caroline reaches out for it, but Elena grabs it before she can.)
Elena: Actually, it's for me.
(Bonnie and Caroline exchange a glance, their faces surprised.)
Caroline: I thought..
Bonnie: Oh. Are you saying that...
(Elena drinks the bloodbag and takes it out her mouth, showing her two friends that she can now keep blood from a bloodbag down.)
Elena: Thanks to Damon, I am now a functional dysfunctional vampire.
Bonnie: That's amazing.
Caroline: Uh, what do you mean "thanks to Damon?"
Elena: Well, he suggested that I try it again. So I did and it worked. No more snatch, eat, erase.
Caroline: So where is my least favorite Salvatore?
(Elena sits on the couch opposite of Caroline and Bonnie. She holds up her phone and reads the text message Damon sent her.)
Elena: "Out with Stefan for the night, don't wait up. Brother bonding."
Caroline: Hm, so you guys check-in text now? What else do you do?
Elena: I know that you're not the biggest fan, but he kind of just changed my life. Would you mind laying off on all the hate?
(Bonnie speaks up to break the tension between Elena and Caroline.)
Bonnie: OK, new girls' night rule -- no boy talk, yeah? Plus, why talk when we have this?
(She holds up a bag full of a black herb.)
Caroline: Is that stoner tea?!
Bonnie: It's spirit tea. It opens up your chi or whatever. (Caroline doesn't look convinced.) Come on, it's not drugs! Shane is helping me do natural magic without having to access the spirits.
Caroline: Mm-hmm.
Bonnie: Don't judge.
Caroline: OK, fine! I hereby vow not to be judgmental for the rest of the evening! Even if you two are potentially ruining your lives as I stand idly by, it's your choice.
Elena: I'll drink to that. (Bonnie and Caroline hold up their wine bottles while Elena touch their glasses with her bloodbag.) Cheers.
(Upstairs, the girls have made their way into Damon's bathroom. Elena is lying in the tub and Bonnie and Caroline are sitting next to her. The three of them are giggling and having a great time.)
Bonnie: Check this out: Vamp speed video.
(She hands Elena her phone and Elena plays the video.)
Elena: (laughing) I look like Superman. Watch this. (She pauses the video at the point where she is superspeeding back into the room. The capture shows a giant blur behind her due to the speed at which she is running. She shows it to Bonnie and Caroline.) This year's Christmas card. (They all laugh.) Being a vampire is so weird. Oh my God, I love this bathtub. Why don't we come and hang out here more often?
Caroline: I'll tell you why. Cooties. Think of all the germ-ridden skanks that Damon has lured into his den of enequity.
Caroline: Ok, I'm sorry. I've been good all night. I am stopping now.
Elena: (sarcastically) No, don't stop on my account. Rip away. I mean, it's only Damon, right?
Caroline: Well, say what you want about Ripper Stefan, but at least he wasn't a man slut.
Bonnie: Come on.
Elena: So, what exactly was it about him that made you jump right into bed with him as soon as you met him?
Caroline: I didn't know what a sociopathic narcissist he was.
Elena: He's always been there for me when I needed him.
Caroline: Yeah, because he's hoping you'll sleep with him.
Elena: Well, maybe I did.
Caroline: You did what?!
Bonnie: You didn't.
Elena: Yeah, I did. Look, I know you two have issues with him, but I'm happy, and I wanted to spend tonight with my best friends so that I could tell them about it.
(Elena gets up from the bathtub and walks away, leaving Caroline and Bonnie in the bathroom, still in shock.)
(Elena is cleaning up the mess from the party in the parlor. Bonnie and Caroline come downstairs to talk to her.)
Bonnie: Elena, come on.
Elena: Party is over. You guys need to leave.
Caroline: Don't be mad, okay? We're just looking out for you.
(Elena finallys turns around and looks at them.)
Elena: Do you think it makes me happy that you guys hate him? I get it. His track record has been kind of spotty but I don't hate him. I can't. He's - I think I'm falling in love with him.
Caroline: Ugh, you're not falling in love with him, Elena. You're sired to him.
(Bonnie and Elena look at her in shock. Caroline knows she shouldn't have revealed this and looks slightly ashamed.)
Bonnie: What?
Elena: What are you talking about?
(Caroline walks down the steps towards Elena.)
Caroline: I... Look, I'm sorry that it came out like that, but it's true. Damon's blood turned you. You couldn't feed from animals or blood bags because he told you so. Then he suggested that you try again with blood bags and suddenly...
Elena: No. There's no way, I...
Bonnie: (to Caroline) Are you sure?
Caroline: Yeah. Ask Stefan about it. He can explain it better than I can.
Elena: (angrily) I'm sorry, you talked to Stefan about this?
Caroline: It's not your fault, Elena. Okay, Damon took advantage of you.
Elena: (angrily) Ok, you need to leave.
(Caroline is shocked and speechless.)
Elena: Now!
(Elena strides past Caroline and Bonnie and walks to the front door.)
Bonnie: Elena!
Caroline: Come on!
Elena: I said leave.
(Elena opens the front door and looks at Caroline and Bonnie. Out on the porch are Adrian and Kim.)
Kim: Hello girls.
(Elena turns and looks at her. Kim rushes into the house and knocks Elena into the wall. She then rushes at Caroline and grabs her by the throat. Adrian rushes in and grabs Elena who fights back and pushes him against another wall. Adrian gets the upperhand eventually and slams Elena into the wall. Both of them have their hands wrapped around the others' throat. Bonnie starts to perform a spell which is so powerful it makes the lights flicker and break.)
Kim: Stop!
(Bonnie looks at Kim and stops the spell. Kim's eyes have turned yellow.)
Kim: One bite from a hybrid and she's dead, remember?
(Adrian throws Elena to the floor. Bonnie helps Elena to get up. When they turn around, they see that Kim and Adrian have gone, but that Caroline has been kidnapped as well.)
Elena: Caroline?
(Bonnie and Elena look out the front door and start to worry about Caroline's whereabouts.)
(Elena walks down the stairs towards the door as Caroline enters the house. They look at each other for a moment and then Caroline hugs Elena tightly.)
Caroline: I'm sorry.
(There is a moment of silence between them as Caroline holds on to Elena.)
Caroline: Ok, if you don't start hugging me back this is gonna get really awkward really fast.
Elena: You've got my hands pinned down.
Caroline: Oh.
(She takes her arms away from around Elena for a second, then wraps them around her again. Elena wraps her arms around Caroline as well and they embrace.)
Caroline: I'm a jerk. I promise to never again judge ever.
Elena: Just please don't tell Stefan about me and Damon.
(They stop hugging each other and look at each other.)
Elena: I promise that I'll tell him. I just - I need to figure out some stuff first.
Caroline: Of course.
(Caroline rubs Elena's arm. Bonnie walks in from behind Elena.)
Bonnie: You guys friends again? Thank God.
Caroline: Well, she saved my life. In spite of me being the nasty, bad witch.
Elena: Thankfully we had our good witch. You know, your hottie creepy Professor really knows his stuff, Bonnie.
Bonnie: It's been baby steps but he's helping with a whole new kind of magic. He calls it expression.
-- We’ll Always Have Bourbon Street

Caroline: What kind of dreams?
Bonnie: Usually I'm at his grave … all of a sudden, he appears to me.
Caroline: Oh, you never got to say goodbye, Bon. You're grieving, that is normal.
Bonnie: When I woke up, the couch was on fire.
Caroline: Oh...
Bonnie: I don't know if it’s because I was emotional in my dream, or if Shane was right. Without his help, I'll lose control of my magic.
Caroline: No, it's because you need a night off from mourning. And I'm gonna make sure that you have it.
Bonnie: You look super hot, by the way.
Caroline: You think?
Bonnie: Oh, yeah!
Caroline: Yeah!
Bonnie: Yeah!
Caroline: Yeah!
Bonnie: Matt and I are gonna have the sexiest date there.
Caroline: You know what? I love friend prom. And it’s exactly what prom should be, friends and memories. Yes, it’s sucks that my boyfriend can’t be here, but the three of us are going have the time of our lives.
Elena: Hey Bonnie, heard you got your mind wiped. That sucks. Pretty dress, Caroline.
Caroline: I know, you helped me pick it out months ago. When we were friends. Before you tried to kill me.
Elena: I thought it looked familiar.
Caroline (to store employee): Can you press this for me? I'll pick it up later. Bonnie?
-- Pictures of You

(The students, all in caps and gowns, are milling about the football field getting ready for the ceremony. Caroline is leaving a message on Klaus' voicemail.)
Caroline: Klaus, now is not the time to decide that you are over me. I'm gonna call you every 10 minutes until you get your ass here to save Damon's life.
(She hangs up as she reaches Bonnie.)
Caroline: Where is everyone?
Matt: (arriving suddenly) I'm here.
Caroline: Where have you been?
Matt: Oh, you know, making plans for the summer, dodging death by vampire hunter.
Bonnie: Where's Elena? We can't do this without her.
(Elena arrives right then with Stefan.)
Elena: I'm here. (She hugs Bonnie.) Thank you for today.
Caroline: I can't believe it. We're actually all here. We are all here together! Bonnie Bennett, are you crying?
Bonnie: It's our last hurrah before you guys go off to college.
Caroline: Before we go off to college.
Elena: I... kinda sorta missed the deadline. You know, being an emotionless bitch.
Caroline: Well, the perks of being a vampire – we can go wherever we wanna go. We can choose our own roommates. We could – we could get a triple room!
(Elena and Stefan chuckle at Caroline's enthusiasm, while Bonnie smiles with tears in her eyes.)
Bonnie: I'm happy we're all here.
Caroline: Aw – group hug!
Stefan: Ah, I don't – I don't hug...
Caroline: Oh, get over yourself!
(The five of them close in for a joint hug.)
-- Graduation

(Elena makes an 'oops' face at Caroline, and they laugh.)
Elena: We're in college, Caroline.
Caroline: We actually made it. We're here!
(They smile together as Bonnie, unseen, smiles with them.)
Bonnie: We're all here together.
-- I Know What You Did Last Summer

(By the time Bonnie resurrected, she's with Jeremy, Elena and Caroline enter behind them.)
Elena: Bonnie?
(Bonnie turns to face them.)
Caroline: Please tell me this is real.
Bonnie: You guys can see me?
Jeremy: Bonnie, it worked.
Bonnie: It worked!
(Elena and Caroline run to Bonnie and they group-hug.)
Elena: You're here!
Bonnie: Thank you.
Caroline: Oh my god, oh my god! And we can be roommates, 'cause we have that extra bed, and we can clear out half the closet...
Bonnie and Elena: (in unison) Caroline!
Caroline: I'm sorry, I just...I can't believe you're really here!
Bonnie: I'm here. I'm back.
-- Death and the Maiden

(Bonnie records a video of herself on her cellphone)
Bonnie: Hi, Mom. I know we haven't seen each other, or talked in a while... so I wanted to make you a video update. I finally finished my whirlwind summer tour, got a new 'do and, I'm in college at Whitmore, where Grams taught. And this is my dorm! It's huge, right? It even has a fireplace! I mean, what dorm has a fireplace?
(The door opens and Caroline and Elena enter.)
Bonnie: Oh, here they are. Hey, guys! Say hi to my mom! (Caroline and Elena get excited and wave to the camera.) They're planning me a welcome party. Just something, just low-key. I miss you. Please come visit when you get a chance. I'll, um, talk to you soon. Bye!
Elena (mimicking Bonnie): "By the way, Mom; I'm not a witch anymore, because I died and then came back from the Other Side."
Caroline: "Yeah, I'm this supernatural anchor that connects the two worlds together, so..."
Elena: "Technically, I'm a ghost, that people can still see, and touch, so..."
Bonnie: Okay, so I left out a detail...or two. I'll explain when she visits. How big is this party going to be?
Elena: Well, let's see. Silas and Tessa are gone, and you finally aren't.
Caroline: Which equals a massive cause for celebration!
Elena: Which equals a massive party. Hopefully. I mean, since each of us have only made one friend in college so far.
Caroline: And given that mine went radio silent after he kissed me, and yours was last seen at a tea party for a vampire-hating secret society.
Bonnie: Hmm... Augustine, right? The one who covered up your roommate's death and wants you kicked off from campus.
(Both girls give her a look.)
Bonnie: What? I've kept up! The Other Side is boring. What else am I supposed to do?
Elena: Alright. So, Augustine wants us gone. Who cares? It doesn't matter. It's not gonna happen. We're moving on with our lives, together, as functional vampires,—(pointing towards Bonnie)—a former witch, anchor-thing. I don't know. (They laugh) And we have a party.
Caroline: With Jell-O shots.
Bonnie: (Looking at her cellphone) Oh, shoot. Um, I have to go register for classes.
(Caroline and Elena share a look.)
Bonnie: What??
Caroline and Elena together: Nothing.
(Bonnie turns around smiling)
Elena: (in a low voice) Have fun registering.
(Caroline and Elena tease Bonnie, acting like they are making out.)
Bonnie: Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
(Bonnie leaves)
-- Dead Man on Campus

(Caroline and Bonnie enter the dorm room carrying a tray of food)
Caroline: Okay. Time to wake up, sleepy head.
Elena: No. I'm not leaving this bed.
Bonnie: Which is why we brought breakfast to you.
(They pull the blanket off of Elena)
Elena: What's all this?
Caroline: This is your breakup breakfast!
Elena: My what?
'(Caroline makes a mimosa for Elena)
Bonnie: So that's it? You're giving up?
Caroline: As she should! He did say, and I quote, "I'm a bad person. I am bad for you. And I'm choosing to let you go."
Elena: You memorized my break up?
Caroline: Of course I did.
'(Caroline hands Elena the glass)
Caroline: Drink this.
'(Elena takes the drink)
Elena: I just have to face reality. When Damon makes up his mind about something, it's done.
Caroline: Yeah.
'(Elena's phone begins to ring on a neighboring dresser, causing Elena to perk up. Caroline goes to pick up the phone, seeing Stefan is calling)
Caroline: It's Stefan.
Elena: Tell him I don't feel like talking.
Bonnie: (to Caroline) She doesn't feel like talking.
Caroline: (to Stefan) She doesn't feel like talking.
Stefan: Well, she's going to want to talk about this.
-- 500 Years of Solitude

'(Caroline walks into a classroom, followed by Bonnie and Katherine who is posing as Elena)
Caroline: So we all agree? No more moping about life's little failures and no more dabbling the dark arts of boyfriends past. This is a fresh start. (She turns around to face them.)
Katherine: Couldn't agree more. I happen to love fresh starts.
Bonnie: Um, I haven't been moping or dabbling. (They sit.)
Caroline: No one likes a bragger, Bonnie.
'(There's an empty seat between Bonnie and a girl in her class. The girl had her purse on the seat and Bonnie talked to her.)
Caroline: Today is the dawning of a new era. This is stage one of our metamorphosis into the land of the brave, the free, and the single.
Katherine: Bonnie's not single.
Caroline: Bonnie's best friends are single, which makes her single adjacent. So she can be our wingwoman. (She pulls out a flyer and gives it to Katherine.)
Katherine: 'Whitmore's Annual Bitter Ball, a night to celebrate broken hearts, jilted lovers, and bitter singles.' This is our fresh start?
Caroline: No. This is our purge, our cleanse. This is where we rid ourselves from the baggage better known as our tragic and mortifying first semester.
Katherine: I'll drink to that.
'(As Caroline keeps taking in the background, Bonnie notices the girl next to her playing with her pen, twirling it on the seat's desk. But then, she keeps twirling it... by hovering her hand over it without touching it. Bonnie opens her eyes and mouth in surprise.)
Caroline: Bonnie!
'(The girl looks at Bonnie and sees that Bonnie has seen her and she slams her hand on the pen, stopping it. Katherine gently hits Bonnie with her elbow to get her attention.)
Caroline: Bonnie, you in?
Bonnie: Yeah. Yeah. Sounds like fun.
-- Total Eclipse of the Heart

(Elena and Caroline are laughing and sitting on her bed as Bonnie comes in with a blanket.)
Bonnie : (incredulously) Are we seriously having a sleepover?
Caroline : Come on! Hurry up and get in here. I'm the one who gets to see her again. I mean, you should get the better goodbye.
Elena : (overwhelmed) Oh Care, come here (Elena hugs her) Take care of everyone while I'm gone, okay?
Caroline : (cries and nods) I will, I promise.
(They pull away and Caroline is still crying)
Elena : Promise me something, both of you. (She grabs her journal and hands it to them.) Write it all down, everything that you accomplish in your life, every crush, when you fall in love, when you start a family, every time you fantasize about wanting to kill Damon..
(They all laugh hysterically, which quickly turns to tears)
Elena : Write it down, so that one day when I wake up, I can read all about my best friends' lives and feel like I was there.
-- I'm Thinking Of You All The While



  • Before and after Elena's second death as a human, all three of them were different kind of supernatural creature.
  • Elena, Bonnie, and Caroline have all died at least once at some point in the series. Elena has died three times, Bonnie has died four times, and Caroline has died once.
    • Caroline died in The Return when Katherine smothered her with a pillow. She returned in Brave New World as a vampire.
    • Bonnie died in The Last Dance when Klaus seeming forced her to use too much magic trying to kill him. However, she had really cast a spell to mimic death, allowing her to appear dead to Klaus, and magically return to life later in the same episode.
    • Elena died in The Sun Also Rises when Klaus drank her blood. She returned in the same episode thanks to a spell Bonnie had cast that allowed John Gilbert's life force to resurrect her, at the cost of his own life.
    • Elena died in The Departed when Rebekah caused Matt's truck to crash into the river, leading her to drown. She returned in the same episode as a vampire.
    • Bonnie died in Growing Pains from using dark magic to temporarily stop her own heart so she could travel to the Other Side and return Elena's soul back into her body. Unfortunately, she was stopped from completing the spell by the ghost of her Grams, and she returned to life through the spell in the same episode.
    • Bonnie died in The Walking Dead when she used too much magic at once to resurrect Jeremy. She was later brought back to life, in a sense, when she was made a corporeal ghost as the Anchor to the Other Side in Death and the Maiden.
    • Elena died again in Home, when she and Damon were blown up in an explosion as part of their plan to sacrifice dozens of Travelers to bring their friends back to life from the Other Side. She returned to life as a vampire after passing through Bonnie, just as they planned.
    • Bonnie died for the fourth time in Home when the Other Side finally imploded. She was surrounded by a white light as she and Damon were presumably sucked into another dimension.
  • They used to play near the well where Mason hid the moonstone on the Lockwood property.
  • Matt told Katherine (while she was possessing Elena's body using a Passenger spell) that Elena likes both Caroline and Bonnie equally.
  • Out of the three, Bonnie has died the most and Caroline has died the least.
  • Elena and Bonnie have been victims of possession by Katherine Pierce and Emily Bennett, while Caroline hasn't
    • Ironically both girls were possessed by an ancestor from their own bloodline.
  • At Bonnie's memorial, both Elena and Caroline comfort one another.
  • As of the end of Season Eight, Elena and Caroline are sisters-in-law, due to the fact that Elena is married to Damon Salvatore and Caroline was married to his brother, Stefan Salvatore until his death.
