Quotes

(Elena walks out of Jenna’s room)
Damon: That’ll get easier…but you know that.
Elena: What do you want?
Damon: I want to apologize.
Elena: Damon…(shakes her head and starts to walk past him)
Damon: Please Elena, feeding you my blood, I was wrong.
Elena: Yes you were.
Damon: And I know I don’t deserve your forgiveness but…I need it.
Elena: And I need some time, maybe a lot of time.
Damon: (knowing he’s going to die soon from the werewolf bite) Sure, of course. Take all the time you need.

Damon: You should want me dead. I’m the reason Jenna got killed.
Alaric: I don’t blame you for Jenna.
Damon: Oh sure you do. Let’s not forget I turned your wife into a vampire. You must really hate me for that one.
Alaric: OK, give me the glass. Neither one of us is drunk enough for this conversation.

(Damon’s lying in Elena’s arms, dying)
Damon: This is even more pitiful than I thought.
Elena: There’s still hope.
Damon: I’ve made a lot of choices that have gotten me here. I deserve this. I deserve to die.
Elena: No, you don’t.
Damon: I do, Elena. It’s OK, because if I’d’ve chosen differently, I wouldn’t have met you. I’m so sorry. I’ve done so many things to hurt you.
Elena: It’s ok, I forgive you.
Damon: I know you love Stefan, I know it’ll always be Stefan. But I love you. You should know that.
Elena: (crying) I do.
Damon: You should have met me in 1864. You would have liked me.
Elena: I like you now. Just the way you are.
(She kisses him)
Damon: Thank you.
Elena: (smiles) You’re welcome.

Katherine: (to Elena) It’s ok to love them both. I did.
