Episode Quotes
Stefan: Damon hasn't said a word to me. Every time I try to talk to him he shuts me down.
Elena: Do you think he's still trying to find Katherine?
Stefan: I don't know. He waited a hundred and forty-five years, only to find out that Katherine could not care less. I mean, it's gotta hurt, right?
Elena: And it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Stefan: Have you thought any more about what you're gonna do?
Elena: About what? Isobel, my vampire birth mother, who's related to my vampire ancestor, Katherine, who screwed over your vampire brother? Nah. Haven't thought about it at all.

Elena: Have you ever even been on a double date before?
Stefan: Oh, absolutely. Uh, '72. Hef and the twins.
Elena: What?
Stefan: Yeah. Playmates. I got Miss June.

Jeremy: Why didn't you...kill me?
Anna: I don't know. Maybe I'm a sucker for guys like you.
Jeremy: Like what?
Anna: Lost. But why would you confront me about it? Why would you risk it?
Jeremy: Because if it was true, maybe...I don't know. Maybe it's true about Vicki. And also because...I want you to turn me.

Matt: Is there anything you're not good at?
Stefan: Double dating.

Damon: What exactly are you trying to achieve?
Pearl: Mystic Falls is our home, Damon. They took that from us. Our land, our home. It's time we rebuild.
Damon: What, are you crazy? That was 1864. Wake up, woman. The world has moved on.

Kelly: Mattie, please.
Matt: Do you know what I was doing tonight, mom? I was having fun, you know trying to forget about all the crap I have to deal with everyday..just enjoy a night with my friends. And then there you are, wasted at the bar, where I work by the way to pay the bills that you don't pay and then you're off acting like a freaking kid..hooking up with some guy half your age. I'm the kid mom, you're supposed to be responsible for me.
