Episode Quotes
Elijah: (opening voiceover) Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength...or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.

Marcel: I assume it's all quiet out there.
Davina: The witches know better than to use magic. They know that I can sense it when they do. What about the Old Ones? They're dangerous and I don't want them to hurt you.
Marcel: The Originals? Davina, as powerful as you are, they don't stand a chance.

Camille: So what brings you to the Big Easy?
Elijah: I used to live here.
Camille: Really? When?
Elijah: Oh, it feels like a hundred years ago.
Camille: I just moved here myself. What brought you back?
Elijah: Well, my brother's here somewhere. I'm afraid he might have gotten himself into a bit of a bind.
Camille: You say that like it's a common occurrence.
Elijah: Well, he's complicated...defiant, ill-mannered, a little temperamental.

Elijah: Right now, you're the most important person in this family. You need a good home. So, I'm curious. In all this time, has anyone asked you how you feel?
Hayley: About having a miracle baby with a psychotic one-night stand?
Elijah: About being a mother.
Hayley: I...I was abandoned when I was born and my adoptive parents kicked me out the second I turned into a wolf. So I don't really know how I feel about being a mother because I...I never really had a good one.
Elijah: I will always protect you. You have my word on that.
Klaus: And noble Elijah always keeps his word.

Episode Goofs

When Sabine gives the tour past the voodoo shop, she is walking and talking about witches. When she walks by the sign on the window, the camera angle changes and she is shown from the front. She continues to walk and talk about the store. The camera angle then changes back to the view from the side, but she has not moved at all.

Cultural References
Episode Title: Always and Forever

'Always and Forever' is the title of a song by American music artists Heatwave.

Lucky Charms: When Marcel is telling Sophie why he killed her sister, he said that it is because she "was cooking up something magically delicious."

"It's magically delicious!" is the slogan used by a magical leprechaun in the advertisements for the children's cereal 'Lucky Charms.'
