Stefan Salvatore (to Elena): That necklace... it contains an herb called vervain. It protects you from being compelled. I wanted to protect you from Damon's influence. But I also wanted... to protect you from me. Elena, you should never take that necklace off. No matter what happens after today and no matter how you feel about me... you'll know that you were free to make your own choice.
Vicki Donovan: What happened? We were dancing and then...
Damon Salvatore: Then I killed you.
Vicki Donovan: What?
Damon Salvatore: You're dead.
Vicki Donovan: I'm dead?
Damon Salvatore: Let's not make a big deal out of it. You drank my blood. I killed you. Now you have to feed in order to complete the process.
Vicki Donovan: You're wasted. Ugh.
Damon Salvatore: You don't wanna be out there all alone. You're about to get really freaky.
Stefan Salvatore: I wanna show you something.
Elena Gilbert: In the middle of nowhere?
Stefan Salvatore: This didn't used to be nowhere. Used to be my home.
Elena Gilbert: It looks so...
Stefan Salvatore: Old? It's because they are.
Elena Gilbert: Wait. How long have you?
Stefan Salvatore: I've been 17 years old... since 1864.
Elena Gilbert: Oh, my God.
Elena Gilbert: You Google "vampire," you get a world of fiction. What's reality?
Stefan Salvatore: I can tell you whatever you want.
Elena Gilbert: I know you eat garlic.
Stefan Salvatore: Yes.
Elena Gilbert: And, somehow, sunlight's not an issue?
Stefan Salvatore: We have rings that protect us.
Elena Gilbert: Crucifixes?
Stefan Salvatore: Decorative.
Elena Gilbert: Holy water?
Stefan Salvatore: Drinkable.
Elena Gilbert: Mirrors?
Stefan Salvatore: Myth.
Elena Gilbert: You said you don't kill to survive.
Stefan Salvatore: Animal blood keeps me alive. I'm not as strong as Damon.
Stefan Salvatore: Elena. I would never hurt you. You're safe with me.
Elena Gilbert: All those animal attacks, those people who died?
Stefan Salvatore: No. That was Damon.
Elena Gilbert: Damon?
Stefan Salvatore: Yes. I don't drink human blood. That's not how I choose to survive, but Damon does. I'll explain everything to you, but I beg you, Elena... do not tell anybody.
Elena Gilbert: How can you ask me that?
Stefan Salvatore: Because you knowing this is dangerous for so many reasons. You can hate me, but I need you to trust me.
Elena Gilbert (narration): Dear diary. I'm not a believer. People are born, they grow old, and then they die. That's the world we live in. There's no magic, no mysticism, no immortality. There is nothing that defies rational thought. People are supposed to be who they say they are, and not lie... or hide their true selves. It's not possible. I'm not a believer. I can't be. But how can I deny what's right in front of me? Someone who never grows old. Never gets hurt. Someone who changes in ways that can't be explained. Girls bitten. Bodies drained of blood.
Damon Salvatore: You're like your grandfather. He didn't like it when I came to visit either.
Zach Salvatore: But you don't visit, Damon. You appear, unannounced, reminding me that this isn't my house... that you're just permitting me to live here. Hell, that you're permitting me to live.
Damon Salvatore: Someone had to mow the lawn.

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)
