Damon: You need to stop doing that.
Elena: Doing what?
Damon: Assuming that I'll play the good guy, because it's you who's asking
Jenna: So Elena is my sister's husband's brother's daughter and her mother is my boyfriend's deceased wife. You can't make that stuff up.
Bonnie: Overnight, you turned into this hot guy, who's really hot and...
Jeremy: You think I'm hot?
Stefan: No, what you’re doing is you’re being a martyr.
Elena: How is that any different when you say that you would die to keep me safe?
Stefan: Because I’ve already lived—162 years, and you’ve barely begun. Now you want to get yourself killed? That’s not heroic. It’s tragic.
Elena: Are you saying I should put my faith in you? After everything that you did to Stefan and Damon?
John: We've had our differences, and I've made mistakes, but you and I, we're family.
Elena: You don't get to use that word. That word is off limits to you.
John: Fine. But it doesn't change the facts.
Elena: You're right. Facts are facts, so listen up. You may be my father, but I am never going to be your daughter. You got that?
Damon: You brought back John Gilbert, that was your big save-Elena-move?
Stefan: I went to go look for Isobel and I got John instead. He said he could help us and we're desperate...
Damon: We're not that desperate Stefan, that guy tried to barbecue me!
