Alaric: So, where is she now that we need her?
Jeremy: She's dead. And you want me to try to reach her, don't you?
Elena: I thought if I knew how she did it, maybe I could help him.
Jeremy: Look, I don't even know if she's on the other side.
Elena: Is that what it's called?
Jeremy: That's what Anna calls it. There's not like an official brochure or anything.

Alaric: Good luck with that.
Alaric: You know, I've had enough vampires today, thanks.
Damon: Oh, come on. Have a drink with me. We got troubles.
Alaric: No, you've got troubles. See, we're not a team. You tried to kill me. All right? We're not friends, I don't like you anymore.
Damon: Ah! But remember back when you liked me and we conspired to kill Uncle Werewolf, Mason Lockwood?
Alaric: Yeah. And?
Damon: I think he's still a little pissed.
