Elijah: Klaus is my brother.
Elena: I heard that. I'm...I'm still processing.
Elijah: Yes, I'm a little behind on the times, but...I believe the term you're searching for is "O.M.G."
Damon: Wow, I'd love to lend you a hand, but, you know, you wouldn't want me doing anything stupid.
Stefan: You're seriously gonna be like this?
Damon: You and your girlfriend are calling the shots. I'm just...backing off, Stefan.
Klaus: You can't kill me, Stefan.
Stefan: Watch me.
Elijah: (to Elena) Your phone wοn't stop it's incessant buzzing. Answer it.
Klaus: The full moon is tomorrow, brother. After all these centuries, it is finally time.
Elijah: I have been to see the witches. They believe they may have found a way to spare the doppelgänger.
Klaus: What does it matter if she lives or not? She's a means to an end, that is all.
Elijah: What, she should die for your gain?
Klaus: She's human. Her life means nothing.
Elijah: I beg you to consider this.
Klaus: Are you so foolish as to care for her?
Elijah: Of course not.
Klaus: Love is a vampire's greatest weakness and we are not weak, Elijah. We do not feel and we do not care.
Elijah: We did once.
Klaus: Too many lifetimes ago to matter. Tell the witches not to bother. The sacrifice will happen as planned.
Katherine: It`s not gonna undo anything.
Damon: There`s always a loophole. Did he tell you it was okay to stay in this apartment until he said it was okay to leave? You can`t say. Did he tell you to do absolutely anything he says until the end of time?
Damon: There`s your loophole.
