Main Characters in this Episode
Anna: To what?
Jeremy Gilbert: Why you should turn me.
Anna: We're back to that?
Jeremy Gilbert: Look. I wake up every day and I feel okay, but there's something missing. Like a... like a hole. Some people, they fit. In life or whatever. I, I don't.
Anna: So, you want a pity turn. I don't think so.
Jeremy Gilbert: No, you should turn me because I don't have anything else.
Anna: Do you even know why we turn other people? It's not to give someone a one-way ticket out of lonerhood. Okay? One, we need someone to do our dirty work. Two, revenge. Three, boredom, but you know that never turns out well. And then, you know, there's the obvious one. You love someone so much that you would do anything to spend all of eternity with them. I'm sorry but you don't fit any of those categories yet.
Mayor Richard Lockwood: Grow up. Elections are coming; she's a constituent. And a rich one from the looks of it.
Tyler Lockwood: And you can tell all that by looking at her ass?
Elena Gilbert: Of course she is. Damon gets what he wants, as usual, no matter who he hurts in the process.
Damon Salvatore: You don't have to be snarky about it.
Elena Gilbert: I woke up this morning to learn that all the vampires have been released from the tomb. I've earned snarky.
Damon Salvatore: How long are you going to blame me for turning your birth mother into a vampire?
Elena Gilbert: I'm not blaming you, Damon. I've accepted the fact that you're a self-serving psychopath with no redeeming qualities.
Damon Salvatore: [sarcastic] Ouch.
- Goof (continuity error): When Elena pulls the stake out of Harper's leg for Stefan, when they are rescuing Stefan, Stefan's hands are still tied and the rope is trailing over his shoulder, then Damon tells them to hurry up and they are leaving the room and Stefan's hands are untied and the rope nowhere to be seen.
- Goof (continuity error): A branch falls on Elena's car when she's waiting for the others to return. When Alaric goes back to the car, there's no branch on it.
- When Stefan and Elena are fighting Frederick and Elena feeds Stefan her blood, this is the first time Stefan has tasted Elena's blood.
