Damon Salvatore: You know, I came in this town wanting to destroy it. Tonight... I found myself wanting to protect it. How does that happen? I'm not a hero, Elena. I don't do good. It's not in me.
Elena Gilbert: Maybe it is.
Damon Salvatore: No. No, that's reserved for my brother and you and Bonnie. Even though she has every reason to hate me, still helped Stefan save me.
Elena Gilbert: Why do you sound so surprised?
Damon Salvatore: She did it for you. Which means somewhere along the way... you decided that I was worth saving. And I wanted to thank you... for that.
Elena Gilbert: You're welcome.
(Damon kisses her on a cheek and then they kiss)
Jeremy Gilbert: Anna said that vampires don't have to feel pain. That they could turn it off if they shut out their humanity.
Damon Salvatore: That's very true.
Jeremy Gilbert: Is it easier that way?
Damon Salvatore: Is what easier?
Jeremy Gilbert: Life.
Damon Salvatore: Life sucks either way, Jeremy. If you're a vampire, you don't have to feel bad if you don't want to.
Jeremy Gilbert: Is that what you did?
Damon Salvatore: I did it for... I did it for a very long time. And life was a lot easier.
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.

The vampire brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore, eternal adolescents, having been leading “normal” lives, hiding their bloodthirsty condition, for centuries, moving on before their non-aging is noticed. They are back in the Virginia town where they became vampires. Stefan is noble, denying himself blood to avoid killing, and tries to control his evil brother Damon, who promised to Stefan an eternity of misery. Stefan falls in love with schoolgirl Elena, who has an uncanny resemblance to the Salvatore brothers old love, Katherine; and whose best friend Bonnie is a witch. (IMDb)
