"I remember everything. One of the highlights of my transition? Remembering everything you compelled me to forget. Like how you and I met first. You were a stranger that told me you wanted me to get everything I wanted from life. Damon, why didn’t you tell me?"
"Would it have made a difference? Didn’t think so."
"You asked me to make a choice, Damon, so I did. If you’re gonna be mad then take it out on me. Not on Stefan, or Matt, or anyone else, but me."
"Are we done here?"
"If it had been you at the bridge last night, and not Stefan, and I had begged you to save Matt…"
"I would have saved you, in a heartbeat, no questions."
"That’s what I thought. And Matt would be dead because you couldn’t let go. Matt would be dead."
"But you wouldn’t be. And you would have gotten to grow up, and had the life that you wanted, the life that you deserve. And I know that I didn’t use to get that, but I do now, and I wanted that FOR YOU, Elena. And I would have gladly had given it to you and let Matt die BECAUSE I AM THAT SELFISH. But you knew that already. The first night we met’s not all that you remember."
