Casting: This episode marks Michael Trevino's 50th episode appearance as Tyler Lockwood.
Rebekah: Do you still love Stefan?
Rebekah: Are you still in love with Stefan?
Rebekah: Did that hurt? Having someone you love drive a dagger through your heart.
Stefan: Go to hell.
Rebekah: Did that hurt?
Rebekah: Welcome to the last 900 years of my life.
Rebekah: What are you doing?
April: Oh, you asked me to take notes.
Rebekah: I wasn't being literal, darling. But now that you mention it, a flow chart would be nice. Which means index cards and pushpins. Go and fetch.
Klaus: How many vampires has he killed?
Damon: If we throw Jeremy out into the world right now, he's chum.
Klaus: Yeah, see, that's not a number. 12, that's a number. That's how many of my hybrids I slaughtered with my sword. 3, that's how many days it took to quell the urge to kill your brother after he knowingly watched as I walked into a death trap. 1, that's the number of purposes you serve. You are here to grow Jeremy's mark, so I'll ask again. How many vampires has he killed since he's been here?
Klaus: That's a pity. I'm gonna need that cure sooner rather than later. Hybrid shortage and all. How can I help?
Caroline: Hey, you just missed the mandatory all-school assembly.
Stefan: Well, that's because I'm at a mandatory all-alone drinking party.
Rebekah: Hello, Tyler. I heard my brother made a real mess of your life. Believe me, I can relate. You have my condolences. In fact, why don't you come down to the high school so you can accept them in person?
Tyler: And why would I do that?
Rebekah: Because I have your girlfriend. Maybe you have a better shot at saving her than you did your mother.
