Damon: I feel, Elena. Ok? And it sucks!

Rose: What do you call this whole deal with Elijah?
Elena: I call it my best option.
Rose: It’s the easiest option.

Damon: I’m lost…
Jessica: You’re laying in the middle of the road.
Damon: Not that kind of lost. (sits up) Metaphorically. Existentially.

Caroline: Everybody just needs to stop kissing me!

Damon: Jessica, I have a secret. I have a big one and I’ve never said it out loud. I mean, what’s the point? It’s not going to change anything. It’s not going to make me good. Make me adopt a puppy. I can’t be what other people want me to be. What she wants me to be. This is who I am, Jessica.
Jessica: Are you going to hurt me?
Damon: I’m not sure. Because you are my existential crisis. Do I kill you? Do I not kill you?
Jessica: Please don’t.
Damon: But I have to, Jessica. Because I’m not human and I miss it. I miss it more than anything in the world. That is my secret. But there is only so much hurt a man can take.
Jessica: Please don’t.
Damon: OK. (compelling her) You’re free to leave.
(Jessica starts to run, Damon changes his mind and kills her)
