Episode Quotes
Sheriff Forbes: There was a disturbance at the hospital blood bank last night. Some of the supply was compromised.
Damon: Compromised? You mean..stolen?
Sheriff Forbes: We almost missed it. The inventory records were altered, but when the night manager was questioned he had no recollection of changing it.
John: Meaning the vampire who stole the blood used mind control to hide the theft.
Damon: I know what she means.

John: I'll tell the entire council what you are.
Damon: Go for it. I'll kill every last one of them, then I'll sever your hand, pull your ring off, and I'll kill you, too. Do you understand that?

Anna: You were basically using me to turn you into a vampire so you could be with someone else.
Jeremy: No, I wasn't using you.
Anna: Really? Then, how would you like to define it?
Jeremy: I don't think it's any worse than becoming friends with me so we could give your mother my blood.
Anna: How do you know that?
Jeremy: It's not important.
Anna: Seriously, Jeremy. What do you know?
Jeremy: Everything. I know everything.

Anna: You're missing Elena's introduction.
Jeremy: I don't care.
Anna: So she has no idea you read her journal?
Jeremy: Well, she keeps things from me, I'm gonna keep things from her.

Damon: Stefan, let's be serious for a second. You've spent last century and a half being a poster child for Prozac, and now you expect me to believe that this new you has nothing to do with human blood...nothing?
Stefan: I'm clean.
Damon: You're lying!
Stefan: Believe what you want.

Damon: He has a fridge full of stolen blood-bank contraband in the house.
Elana: Oh my god!
Damon: He has no idea what normal is. His entire existence isn't normal. Normal to a vampire is drinking human blood. But he's spent all this time fighting it, when he should have been learning how to control it. And now it's controlling him instead.

Episode Goofs

When Stefan arrives at the school, he parks his car and goes around the back to open the trunk and get his things. In 1x16, "There Goes the Neighborhood," Matt and Stefan were looking at the car, and the engine was in the back, not the trunk.

Cultural References
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: Damon says to Stefan, "Who do you think you're talking to? I know what it's like, that Jekyll and Hyde feeling."

Jekyll and Hyde are characters from the Robert Louis Stevenson novel, 'Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' published in 1886.

Judith Viorst: Damon says to Anna, "Today's been a no-good, very bad day."

This is a reference to the book 'Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day' by Judith Viorst.
