No sudden moves. No tricks, either. No Katherine-ing.

Vicki: I know you.
Damon: Well, that's unfortunate.

Damn, you're strong for a little thing.

Damon: She's strong and crafty and you'll die.
Elena: At least I'll die trying.

Elena's only goal is to end Katherine's life. That isn't gonna magically go away with Pilates and a juice cleanse.

It does dead flesh good.

Stefan: Promise me, whatever happens, you'll protect her.
Damon: Promise.

You do realize you are dating a reformed serial killer, right?

Damon: You could've just told me what to do.
Elena: I knew what you were going to do.
Damon: You knew that the evil, selfish Damon Salvatore would give up the love of his life to save her best friend.
Elena: I knew that the love of my life would stand by his best friend even if it meant having to live without me for a little while.

Guilt. Don't know it, but I've heard it can be a royal bitch.

You know what they say about teenage suicide... don't do it.

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
