Caroline: What do you mean, you're not coming? I don't need to remind you that your Miss Mystic Falls attendance record totally sucks. Besides, you're a founding family member. By definition, you have to be here.
Stefan: Elena and I broke up. By definition, I don't need to be anywhere.
Caroline: Did that sound as depressing to you as it did to me?
Stefan: Oh, I'm not depressed. I just want to rip into someone's artery and feed until I can't breathe anymore.
Caroline: Well, you can't. As your sober sponsor, I'm not going to let that happen.
Caroline: How did I become the bad guy?
Klaus: Let's get you a drink. I'll tell you all about being the bad guy.
Klaus: I was wondering what time I should pick you up tomorrow.
Caroline: How about a quarter to never?
Klaus: I was promised a date in return for one of my hybrids.
Caroline: Yes, a date. Like, to a movie, where we don't have to talk and I can put at least three seats between us.
Damon: Where've you been?
Stefan: Oh, you know. Out.
Damon: Where you going?
Damon: Okay. I see shady Stefan's back. Please don't tell me that you're still working with Klaus?
Stefan: You obviously haven't heard. Elena and I broke up.
Damon: Oh. Got it. Well, I'll be quick then. So apparently if we want to find the cure, we have to find a vampire hunter who can kill enough vampires to reveal the map on the hunters mark. Now unless we want Jeremy to go all Connor 2.0, I suggest we find a different hunter.
Elena: My brother wants to kill me.
Damon: Welcome to the club.
