Elijah Mikaelson: You don't make it easy to love you, brother.
Klaus Mikaelson: And yet, you are obstinate in your desire to do so.
Elijah Mikaelson: [sarcastic, to Diego] Darling, we've got to stop meeting like this. This is how rumors begin.
Klaus Mikaelson: [to Marcel] At first, the promise of offspring meant little to me and I recalled my father and how he held me in contempt from the moment I was born. As yours did with you. I will not do to my child what was done to me.
Elijah Mikaelson: [about Hayley] I'm not trying to impress the girl.
Rebekah Mikaelson: Well, I should bloody hope you are. Why else are we out here? Come on, Elijah. You've fallen for her. Admit it. It may do wonders for the stick that's lodged up your enduringly stoic ass if you did.
Marcel Gerard: [Klaus, about Cami] You compelled her to go out with me, didn't you?
Marcel Gerard: And I thought you really liked me.
Camille O'Connell: So did I.
Klaus Mikaelson: [to Cami] Well, I mean to be clear. I only compelled you to give him a chance. Anything you felt for him was quite real. and for the record, the level of awkwardness we're all currently experiencing is entirely genuine.
Father Kieran: [to Klaus] How do you expect me to remake the mayor?
Hayley: [trite] You must be the all-powerful super-witch Davina. And let's not forget Josh, newbie vampire way out of his element, voted most likely to die next.
Klaus Mikaelson: [Toasting to his guests] Let us begin with a toast to our shared gift: immortality. After 1,000 years, one might expect life to be less keenly felt, for its beauties and its sorrows to diminish with time, but as vampires we feel more deeply than humans could possibly imagine. Insatiable need, exquisite pain, our victories, and our defeats. To my city, my home again. May the blood never cease to flow.
Marcel Gerard: any may the party never end.
Marcel Gerard: [to Klaus] You're the one who taught me that a man can't be defined by anyone but himself.
Klaus Mikaelson: [to Cami] A thousand years of history isn't going to write itself.
Klaus Mikaelson: When I order werewolves to be hunted to extinction, I expect you to stand to the side and let the blood flow.
Elijah Mikaelson: How delightfully democratic of you.
Klaus Mikaelson: I have had enough family to last me a lifetime. Why would I possibly want anymore?
Camille O'Connell: [to Klaus] You are such a coward. This isn't about me. You have kept me here for weeks just so someone, anyone wouldn't see who you really are. And now that I have, it scares the hell out of you. Doesn't it?
Klaus Mikaelson: [to Marcel] This community that you've built, you have their respect, their love. I can rule them, but I cannot win them. Not without you. So rule with me, side by side, as equals, friends, brothers.
Marcel Gerard: When I picked up that coin, I swore loyalty, Klaus. Not friendship. I'm holding up my end. The other has to be earned.
Hayley: Rebekah, all my life I've wanted to know who my real family was and just as I find out that they're out there in the bayou. Klaus ordered them killed. You want to help me? Help my people.
