Damon Salvatore: You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for.
Elena Gilbert: That's what love should be. You should love the person that makes you glad to be alive.
Elijah: All we need is to take that stake away from him. Once it's been disarmed, the weapon's in my possession, my family will scatter to the ends of the Earth and Alaric will follow us.
Stefan Salvatore: And you'll just run?
Elijah: We've done it before. Klaus and Rebekah spent the better part of a thousand years evading my father. What's another half century while Elena is able to live out the rest of her natural life?
Elena Gilbert: [about Klaus] We've finally stopped him, Elijah. After everything that he's done to us, I can't just let you bring him back.
Elijah: I give you my word, Elena. I will not revive Klaus within yours nor even within your children's lifetimes. Perhaps that will finally teach him some manners.
Matt Donovan: Why should she trust you? All you've done is screw her over.
Elijah: And for that, I am deeply ashamed. But know this, she could have been dead the instant I walked through that door tonight, so Elena, I leave it to you to make the decision whether to trust me or not.
Rebekah: [in tears, about Klaus] He's gone, Elijah. There was nothing I could do to stop it.
Elijah: [shaken] Tyler Lockwood is dead, but the rest survived. You said that Niklaus turned their bloodline.
[referring to Caroline, Damon, and Stefan]
Rebekah: I thought he did.
Elijah: It wasn't me. It wasn't Kol.
Rebekah: It wasn't me, Elijah. It was Niklaus! I'm sure of it.
Elijah: [deeply perplexed] Then how are they still alive?
Jeremy Gilbert: [over the phone] I took her to the hospital. When you find your sister unconscious, you call 911.
Damon Salvatore: Not when you have a parade of vampires at your disposal.
Stefan Salvatore: Every remaining Original is gonna want Elena dead to stop Alaric. She's a sitting duck in there.
Jeremy Gilbert: Well, Meredith wants to keep her here for observation.
Damon Salvatore: Jeremy, get Elena home. We're on our way.
Elena Gilbert: [waking up] Where is everyone?
Matt Donovan: Tyler and Caroline got a call from their moms. What were you dreaming about?
Elena Gilbert: Sophomore year.
Matt Donovan: Seems like forever ago.
