Damon: Rise and shine, sleepyheads!
Stefan: What are you doing?
Elena: Damon, please!
Damon: Oh, stop being smutty.

Anna: You just couldn't live without me, huh?
Jeremy: Well, I kinda miss my daily dose of cute stalker chick.
Damon: So you've been here the whole time, then why are we just crossing paths right now?
Anna: I like to use others to do my dirty work.
Damon: Like Logan Fell? Oh yeah, thanks for that. By the way, the little bastard shot me.
Stefan: I can't let you bring her back, I'm sorry.
Damon: So am I, for thinking for even a second that I could trust you.
Stefan: You are not capable of trust. The fact that you're here means that you read the journal and you were planning on doing this yourself.
Damon: Of course I was gonna do it by myself, because the only one I can count on is me! You made sure of that many years ago, Stefan.
Damon: Who are you dodging?
Jeremy: This girl, Anna. She can be, uh... persistent.
Damon: Is she hot?
Jeremy: Yeah...yeah, but she can be weird.
Damon: Hot trumps weird...trust me.
Stefan: Damon! Damon stop, stop! I'll help you, we'll get her back!
Damon: Help me?! Don't you think you've done enough?! You promised you wouldn't tell him!
Stefan: I didn't think this would happen!
Damon: You did this. This is your fault!
