Stefan: Why are you here now?
Damon: I could ask you the same question. However, I’m fairly certain your answer could be summed up all into one little word: Elena.

Stefan: Damon, please, after all these years can’t we just please give it a rest?
Damon: I promised you an eternity of misery. I’m just keeping my word.
Stefan: Just stay away from Elena.

Elena: Dear Diary: Today will be different. It has to be. I will smile and it will be believable. The smile will say ‘I’m fine, thank you. Yes, I feel much better’. I will no longer be the sad little girl who lost her parents. I will start fresh. Be someone new. It’s the only way I’ll make it through.
