Damon: You have every right to hate me. I understand. But you hated me before and we became friends. It would suck if that was gone forever. So, is it? Have I lost you forever?
Elena: Thank you for the book, Damon.

Elena: Right. I forgot I was speaking to a psychotic mind that snaps and kills people impulsively.

Elena: You touch her and I swear I’ll never speak to you again.
Damon: What makes you think that has any power over me? Cause I took an arrow in the back for you? You are severely overestimating yourself.

Damon: You know this whole pretending to hate me is getting a little silly.

Elena: I need to know the truth. When you broke Jeremy’s neck, did you know that he was wearing the ring?
Damon: No. No, I didn’t. Katherine really pissed me off and I snapped, and I… I got lucky with the ring. I don’t know what I would’ve done if he wasn’t wearing it. [pause] Elena, I’m sorry.
Elena: Thank you for being honest with me. And the answer to your question about our friendship? Is yes. You have lost me forever.
Damon: But you knew that already, didn’t you? When you used me today.
Elena: You had information about Katherine that I needed.
Damon: I thought friends didn’t manipulate friends? You and Katherine have a lot more in common than just your looks.
