Elena: I care about you Damon, which is why I have to let you go. Maybe if you and I had met first…

(Flashback of the first time Damon and Elena met)
Elena: I don’t know what I want.
Damon: Well that’s not true, you want what everybody wants.
Elena: What? A mysterious stranger who has all the answers?
Damon: Well let’s just say i’ve been around a long time, i’ve learned a few things.
Elena: So Damon, tell me, what is it that I want?
Damon: You want a love that consumes you. You want passion, and adventure, and even a little danger.
Elena: So what do you want?
(car horn beeps)
Elena: That’s my parents.
Damon: (compelling her) I want you to get everything you’re looking for, but right now I want you to forget that this happened. Can’t have people knowing i’m in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon: (as Alaric dies in his arms) Oh no…no no no. Ric?! Ric?! You are not dead, you are not dead!

Damon: Where is she?!
Meredith: No, Damon. Wait.
Damon: Where is she?!
Meredith: You need to know when Jeremy bought Elena in here earlier tonight her injuries were worse than I let on. It wasn’t a concussion it was a cerebral hemorrhage, bleeding on the brain.
Damon: What are you saying?
Meredith: (about Stefan) He was so worried I didn’t want to tell him but…I helped her. She needed my help.
Damon: You what?!
