Casting: Main cast members Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood) and Joseph Morgan (Niklaus Mikaelson) do not appear in this episode.
Elena: You wanted to kill Klaus when you got your emotions back.
Stefan: I know, and I couldn't.
Elena: You don't think I can kill Katherine?
Stefan: I don't think you really want to.
Elena: Maybe you're right. Maybe I just want to feel the warmth of her chest cavity as I rip out her heart, and watch her face as she realizes that I took it from her. Nah, I just want to kill her. It's that simple.
Katherine: You realize I'm not just some wandering child in a supermarket, right? I'm a vampire that can kill you.
Bonnie: Whatever happens to me happens to you. Do you really think I want you here?
Katherine: And what is "here"? Oh, right. Twelve dead hybrids. This should be good.
Caroline: Is it supposed to rain tonight?
Rebekah: Do I look like a meteorologist?
Damon: As self righteous as Stefan is, he has a point. Behind your rage there is a tidal wave of feelings. All of your guilt, all your grief. Every emotion you have put off, and Katherine is going to let it all in. And if you can't handle it, then we're back to square one.
Elena: And if I can? What if killing Katherine takes away all that grief and guilt? What if killing Katherine finally lets me feel all the good things that I've lost? Damon, help me.
Damon: So this is either really good, or really bad.
Alaric: It's good to see you too, Damon.
Rebekah: So, let me get this straight. You send out a notice of your impending graduation and people feel obliged to give you money?
Matt: Pretty much.
Rebekah: That sounds brilliant. Why aren't you participating?
Matt: I don't have a whole lot of family.
When Damon is drawing the expression triangle on the map, with Stefan and Liz, he begins to connect the three points by drawing the first line. The camera angle changes to Liz for less than a second, and when it switches back Damon is drawing the third line to complete the triangle. The second line has been drawn in, but there would have been no time for him to do it.
