Quotes

Damon: Somehow you’re the only one that wins. How’d that happen?
Katherine: I didn’t let love get in the way.
Damon: Enjoy an eternity alone, Katherine.

Tyler: You were right. I shouldn’t have come home.
Caroline: No, you just…should have never left. And you shouldn’t leave again.
Tyler: You’re kidding, right? This is the second time I’ve tried to kill you.
Caroline: Well, no friendship is perfect.

Damon: (to Elena) Come back as a vampire, I’ll stake you myself, so don’t. Cuz I can’t stand the idea of you hating me forever.

Damon: (to Stefan, about his werewolf bite) You wanna do something for me? Keep this from Elena. The last thing she needs is another grave to mourn.

John: (voiceover of his letter to Elena) Elena, it’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I’m haunted by how things might have played out differently if I’d been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this. Whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same. As I’ve always loved you, and always will. John.
