Quotes

Damon (as an apology to both Mason and Alaric): "I do a lot of things I don't have to."
Damon: "Greetings, Blondie, Witchie. I think you got your voodoo wires all crossed when you got rid of Vicki Donovan."
Bonnie: "What do you mean? Why?"
Damon: "Because I'm pretty sure I just got spit-roasted by Mason Lockwood's ghost."
Bonnie: "What?"
Caroline: "And why would you think that?"
Damon: "Maybe because he chained me to a chair and shoved a hot poker in my chest. Let's just say I'm having déjà vu."
Caroline: "I thought you said ghosts couldn't physically interact with people."
Bonnie: "They can't."
Damon: "Yeah, well, I don't have time for a vengeful Lockwood. When I kill someone, they're supposed to stay dead. Whatever you screwed up, fix it."
Elena: "I've been going through Stefan's old journals. Every single time that he's gone off the rails in the past, his best friend Lexi's been the one to bring him back."
Alaric: "So, where is she now that we need her?"
Jeremy: "She's dead. And you want me to try to reach her, don't you?"
Elena: "I thought if I knew how she did it, maybe I could help him."
Jeremy: "Look, I don't even know if she's on the Other Side."
Elena: "Is that what it's called?"
Jeremy: "That's what Anna calls it. There's not like an official brochure or anything."
Alaric: "So, what is it? Like some sort of supernatural purgatory?"
Jeremy: "Anna said it's, it's like being here with all of us, only we can't see her or hear her. And she can't interact with anyone. She's all alone."
Lexi (to Stefan): "You know you say that every time? I don't want your help, I don't want to get better, leave me alone."
Grams: "Witches talk. Even on the other side."
Bonnie: "What do you want me to say, Caroline? I went against the balance of nature when I brought Jeremy back to life and now I'm paying the consequences."
Caroline: "I want you to say you're not okay with it."
Bonnie: "I'm a thousand times not okay with it. I just don't know what to do about it."
Stefan (looking at his journal): "Oh, wow. All these words. I forgot how much I used to care."
Anna (to Jeremy): "I'm only here because you want to be with me as much as I want to be with you. Send me away, Jeremy. It's that easy."
Stefan: "I will rip you apart, Lexi!"
Lexi: "You can't. I'm already dead."
Damon: "All right, which way?"
Mason: "I don't know, flip a coin."
Damon: "Aren't you supposed to be all-knowing?"
Mason: "I'm a ghost, not God."
Mason: "I don't need revenge, Damon. I need redemption."
Jeremy (about Anna): "I can touch her, Elena. I can kiss her again. And I know it's wrong, and I know that I shouldn't feel this way, but I do. I love her. I've always loved her."
Bonnie (to Jeremy): "Matt let go of his sister before you let go of Anna. His sister, Jeremy! You know what you owe me? The respect of not making me listen to you explain yourself."
Alaric: "You know, I've had enough vampires today, thanks."
Damon: "Oh, come on. Have a drink with me. We got troubles."
Alaric: "No, you've got troubles. See, we're not a team. You tried to kill me. All right? We're not friends, I don't like you anymore."
Damon: "Ah! But remember back when you liked me and we conspired to kill Uncle Werewolf, Mason Lockwood?"
Alaric: "Yeah. And?"
Damon: "I think he's still a little pissed."
