Stefan Salvatore: Crow's a bit much, don't you think?
Damon Salvatore: Wait till you see what I can do with the fog.
Damon Salvatore: When was the last time you had something bigger than a squirrel?
Damon Salvatore: Your hairs different, I like it
Damon Salvatore: It's been 15 years, Damon
Damon Salvatore: Thank god! Couldn't take another day of the 90's. That horrible grunge look did not suit you. Remember Stefan, it's important to stay away from fads
Stefan Salvatore: What are you doing here?
Damon Salvatore: I missed my little brother
Stefan Salvatore: You hate small towns, they're boring there's nothing for you to do
Damon Salvatore: I've been keeping myself busy
Stefan Salvatore: You left that girl alive tonight. That was very careless of you
Damon Salvatore: Yeah, that could be a problem... for you
Caroline Forbes: His name is Stefan Salvatore. He lives with his uncle up at the old Salvatore boarding house. He hasn't lived here since he was a kid. Military family, so they moved around a lot. He's a Gemini and his favorite color is blue.
Bonnie Bennett: You got all of that in one day?
Caroline Forbes: Oh, please. I got all of that between third and fourth period. We're planning a June wedding.
Bonnie Bennett: So, where is he?
Elena Gilbert: I don't know, you tell me. You're the psychic one, remember?
Bonnie Bennett: Oh, right I forgot. Give me a sec, gran says I need to concentrate.
Elena Gilbert: Wait, you need a crystal ball.
[hands her a beer bottle]
Stefan Salvatore: I wanted to apologize for my disappearing act earlier, I know it was... strange.
Elena Gilbert: No worries. I get it, blood makes you squeamish.
Stefan Salvatore: Um, something like that.
Damon Salvatore: I was impressed. I'll give it a six. Missing style, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very good with the whole face thing, it was good.
Stefan Salvatore: It's all fun and games, huh Damon? But wherever you go, people die.
Damon Salvatore: That's a given.
Stefan Salvatore: Not here, I won't allow it.
Damon Salvatore: I take that as an invitation.
Stefan Salvatore: Damon, please, after all these years, can't we just give it a rest.
Damon Salvatore: I promised you an eternity of misery, so I'm just keeping my word.
Bonnie Bennett: You sober yet?
Caroline Forbes: Nope.
Bonnie Bennett: Come on, I need to get you home, I need to get me home.
Caroline Forbes: Why didn't he go for me?
Bonnie Bennett: I'm not touching that.
Caroline Forbes: Why is it that the guys I want, never go for me? I try so hard, maybe because I'm inappropriate and I always say the wrong things and Elena always says the right things. I mean, she doesn't even try and he just picks her!
Bonnie Bennett: Caroline, it isn't a competition.
Caroline Forbes: Yeah, it is.
Stefan Salvatore: I know it's late. But uh... I needed to know that you were ok.
Elena Gilbert: You know, for months, that's all anyone's wondered about me. If I'll be OK.
Stefan Salvatore: What do you tell them?
Elena Gilbert: That I'll be fine.
Stefan Salvatore: Do you ever mean it?
Elena Gilbert: Ask me tomorrow.
Elena Gilbert: It's warmer in the house. We can talk. Would you like to come in?
Stefan Salvatore: Yes.
Elena Gilbert: You know, you're kinda the talk of the town
Stefan Salvatore: Am I?
Elena Gilbert: Mysterious new guy, oh yea
Stefan Salvatore: Well you have the mysterious thing going on too, with a twinge of sadness
Elena Gilbert: What makes you think I'm sad?
Stefan Salvatore: Well we did met in a graveyard
Elena Gilbert: Right. No, technically we met in the Men's room.
Mr. Tanner: The battle of Willow Creek happened right here in our very Mystic Falls. How many casualties resulted in this battle? Miss Bennett?
Bonnie Bennett: A lot? I'm not sure, but like a whole lot
Mr. Tanner: Cute becomes dumb in an instant Miss Bennett. Mr Donovan, maybe you can take this opportunity to over come your embedded jock stereotype
Matt Donovan: That's OK Mr Tanner, I'm cool with it
Mr. Tanner: Elena? Surely you can enlighten us on one of the towns most historic events
Elena Gilbert: I'm sorry, i don't know
Mr. Tanner: I was willing to be lenient last year, for obvious reasons, but the personal reasons ended with summer break
Stefan Salvatore: There was 346 causalities, unless your counting civilians
Mr. Tanner: That's correct, Mr?
Stefan Salvatore: Salvatore
Mr. Tanner: Salvatore? Any relation to the original settlers here in Mystic Falls?
Stefan Salvatore: Distant
Mr. Tanner: Very good, except that there were no civilian casualties in this battle
Stefan Salvatore: Actually there were 27 civilian casualties. Confederate soldiers fired on the church believing it to be hiding weapons, but they were wrong. It's a night of great loss. The founders records are stored in civil hall if you want to brush up on your facts, Mr Tanner.
Stefan Salvatore: For over a century I have lived in secret, hiding in the shadows, alone in the world, until now. I am a vampire. And this is my story.
Stefan Salvatore: I shouldn't have come home, I know the risk, but I had no choice, I have to know her.
Bonnie Bennett: Hold up, who's this?
Elena Gilbert: All I see is back.
Bonnie Bennett: It's a hot back! I'm sensing Seattle and he plays a guitar.
Elena Gilbert: You're really going to run this whole psychic thing into the ground, huh?
Bonnie Bennett: Pretty much.
Caroline Forbes: Why didn't he go for me? How come the guys that I want never want me? I'm inappropriate, always say the wrong thing and Elena always says the right thing. She doesn't even try, and he just picks her. And she's always the one that everyone picks. For everything. And I try so hard and I'm never the one...
Caroline Forbes: Elena, oh my God! How are you? Oh, it's so good to see you.
Caroline Forbes: How is she, is she good?
Elena Gilbert: Caroline, I'm right here. And, I'm fine. Thank you.
Caroline Forbes: Really?
Elena Gilbert: Yes! Much better.
Caroline Forbes: You poor thing.
Caroline Forbes: See you guys later?
Elena Gilbert: [to Bonnie] No comment.
Elena Gilbert: Dear Diary, today will be different. It has to be. I will smile, and it will be believable. My smile will say, "I'm fine, thank you. Yes, I feel much better." I will no longer be the sad little girl that lost her parents. I will start fresh, be someone new. It's the only way I'll make it through.

I will no longer be the sad little girl who lost her parents, I will start fresh, be someone new. It's the only way I can make it through.
Elena Gilbert: Dear Diary, I made it through the day! I must have said "I'm fine, thanks!" at least 37 times, and I didn't mean it once. And no one noticed. When someone asks how are you, they really don't want an answer...
