Stefan Salvatore: Why didn't you tell me?
Damon Salvatore: I didn't want you to know. Because I hated you, and I still do.
Stefan Salvatore: I know.
Damon Salvatore: But not because you forced me to turn.
Stefan Salvatore: Then why?
Damon Salvatore: Because she turned you. It was just supposed to be me, Stefan. Just me.
Emily Bennett: You've transitioned.
Stefan Salvatore: You'd have rather found me dead?
Emily Bennett: Katherine saved my life once. I owed her. That doesn't mean I'd wish her curse on anyone.
Stefan Salvatore: It feels more like a gift.
Emily Bennett: That will change.
Stefan Salvatore: Why is that?
Emily Bennett: Because even in death, your heart is pure, Stefan. I sense that about you. That will be your curse.
Stefan Salvatore: Oh, God. I shouldn't be here.
Damon Salvatore: Come on. Don't be a downer. It's a party for founding families. That would be us. It would be rude to skip it.
Stefan Salvatore: I really liked you a whole lot better when you hated everybody.
Damon Salvatore: Oh, I still do. I just love that they love me.
Stefan Salvatore: Doing okay?
Elena Gilbert: Is it weird if I say yes?
Stefan Salvatore: Is it true?
Elena Gilbert: I should feel more upset... or scared or something, but I feel kind of exhilarated.
Stefan Salvatore: It's the adrenaline. You'll crash soon enough.
Elena Gilbert: Yeah, I guess. I fought back tonight. It felt good.
Elena Gilbert: What was it like? The '50s. Because in my mind I have this picture of somewhere between... American Bandstand, Grease. It's all varsity sweaters and milkshakes.
Stefan Salvatore: Well, that and, you know, McCarthyism and segregation, the nuclear arms race...
Elena Gilbert: Okay, but there were poodle skirts.
Stefan Salvatore: There were poodle skirts.
Elena Gilbert: You think that you brought all of this bad stuff into my life... but my life already had it. I was buried in it.
Stefan Salvatore: This is different.
Elena Gilbert: It doesn't make it any less painful.
Stefan Salvatore: I know that it's hard to understand... but I'm doing this for you.
Elena Gilbert: No. You don't get to make that decision for me. If you walk away, it's for you. Because I know what I want. Stefan, I love you.
Stefan Salvatore: Now, what do you want with Katherine's crystal?
Damon Salvatore: She didn't tell you?
Stefan Salvatore: We had other things on our mind.
Damon Salvatore: I could rip your heart out and not think twice about it.
Stefan Salvatore: Yeah. I've heard that before.
Damon Salvatore: I have a bigger surprise, Stefan. I'm gonna bring her back.
Stefan Salvatore: So, Stefan... you know, I've been thinking. I think we should start over. Give this brother thing another chance. We used to do it, oh, so well once upon a time.
Damon Salvatore: I don't, Damon. I can't trust you to be a nice guy. You kill everybody and you're so mean. You're so mean and... You're really hard to imitate and then I have to go to that lesser place.
Damon Salvatore: I got the town off our back. It was for the greater good. But I'm sorry. And to prove it, I'm not gonna feed on a human for at least a week. I'll adopt the Stefan diet. Only nothing with feathers.
Stefan Salvatore: Because I realize that killing your closest and oldest friend is beyond evil and yet somehow it's worthy of humor.
Damon Salvatore: Are you mimicking me?
Stefan Salvatore: Yes, Stefan. Now that the secret society of vampire-haters is off our back I can go back to my routine of "how can I destroy Stefan's life this week?"
Damon Salvatore: And I can go back to sulking and Elena longing and forehead brooding. This is fun. I like this.
Stefan Salvatore: And I will finally reveal the ulterior motive behind my evil and diabolical return to Mystic Falls.
Damon Salvatore: Yeah, I'm done. This is so like you, Damon. Always have to have the last word.
(After Damon kills Lexi...)
Damon Salvatore: Told you I'd take care of it. (Stefan attacks Damon) Come on, I did this for you, to get them off our trail.
Stefan Salvatore: You never do anything for anyone but yourself.
(Stefan stabs Damon in the stomach with a wooden stake)
Damon Salvatore: You missed.
Stefan Salvatore: No. You saved my life, I'm sparing yours. We're even. And now we're done.
