Damon: "What are you doing?"
Stefan: "Negotiating peace on your behalf."
Damon (complains): "But I don't want peace!"
Stefan: "Huh. Consider it opposite day."
Damon: "Stefan, please tell me you don't seriously think a handshake just solved our problem."
Stefan: "No, actually, I think that the first chance Mason Lockwood gets, he's gonna drive a stake through your heart, and then through mine. All because you took it upon yourself to try and kill him. So thank you, 'cause we don't have enough problems."

Damon (to Elena): "Hey... Stefan didn't drink the people blood. But he needs to. And deep down, you know that."

Elena (to Stefan): "It`s you and me, Stefan. Always."

Stefan: "Okay how about this? Today, when we`re fighting, if I say 'I can`t do this anymore, Elena,' what I really mean is that I love you."
Elena: "And when I say 'Fine, Stefan. Whatever,' that'll mean that I love you, too."
