(Damon lies down in bed next to Elena)
Elena: You never told me about that, what you did for Rose.
Damon: It wasn’t about you.
Elena: Why don’t you let people see the good in you?
Damon: Because when people see good they expect good. And I don’t want to have to live up to anyones expectations.
(Damon and Elena’s hands touch, Elena goes outside on the balcony and Damon follows her)
Elena: Don’t.
Damon: Why not? Elena…
(Elena runs to Damon and kisses him)

Damon: What are you doing?
Elena: What do you mean?
Damon: Well…this trip, and you kissing me. What the hell is this?
Elena: Stefan thinks that I have feelings for you.
Damon: Do you?
Elena: I don’t…I don’t know.
Damon: I guess you thought this little trip could help you figure that out, didn’t you? Or maybe you’re hoping i’ll screw it up so I can just make the decision for you. Am I wrong?
Elena: Damon…
Damon: Am I wrong?!
Elena: That’s what you do, Damon! You sabotage things. I mean think about it, every time that there’s a bump in the road you lash out.
Damon: What if I didn’t? What if there was no bump? I’m sorry Elena, but this time i’m not gonna make it so easy for you. This time you’ll have to figure it out for yourself.

Rose: (to Jeremy about Damon and Elena) I know you want to stop it, protect her from him. But you’re young, you don’t see what I see. It’s not just that she makes him a better person, and she does. But, he changes her too. Damon challenges her, surprises her, he makes her question her life, beliefs. Stefan is different, his love is pure, he’ll always be good for her. Damon is either the best thing for her, or the worst.
