Elena: I like you now, just the way you are.
Buffy: Does she have amnesia?
Recapper: Little bit. It's the Evil Pixie Monster eyes. She can't help herself. Of all people, you ought to understand a woman who likes a little monster in her man.
Damon: Watch me pretend I'm not positioning my lips such that Elena will feel compelled (but not in a vampire way) to kiss me.
Recapper: Nice work, there.
Damon: I know, right? Even when I'm dying, I've still got it.
Recapper: Yes you do, EPM, but if she doesn't wipe some of that sweat off you, I'm going to lose my lunch.
Elena: Wimp. I'm kissing him just the way he is, because I like him just the way he is. Watch. *SMOOCH*
Recapper: Ew. That was both gross and too short. I mean if you're going to go there, then go there, darn it. In addition to feeling slightly queasy, I feel ripped off.
Damon: Thank you.
Katherine: Well, it's me you should be thanking. I'm the one who brought the cure. Hey, I thought Doppelganger girlie was dead.
Elena: I was.
Damon: You got free and you still came here?
Katherine: I owed you one, besides, I'm tired of all my boyfriends being in love with Mini-Me.
Elena: Don't call me that. I am just exactly as tall as you, because we're played by the same actress. And hey, how did you get in here? I'm the owner of Mossy Manse now and I never invited you in.
Recapper: Okay, this is taking too long. Back to regular format. Everyone ready? Let's go!
Giles: Wait. I was waiting for a more opportune moment, but since it appears I shall be denied one, I just want to state, on the record, that I'm really rather brassed off that the show is using the term Ripper, because, as this kids say, this is my verse, hello!
Recapper: Let's talk about that in private, honey. I've got a recap to finish.
Giles: Oh, very well.
When Elena asks where Stefan is, Katherine explains that he's traded his life with Elena, for Damon's life, because no matter how much the beautiful Brothers Salvatore might love their new girlfriend, they love each other even more. She's a little more subtle than that, but just barely. She then adds that it's a good thing Elena has Damon to keep her company. At the doorway, she pauses and turns back to address both her double, and those segments of the fandom who think this triangle is a battle ground, not a good story. "Oh. It's okay to love them both. I did." Hee. She tosses the bottle of blood to Elena, and slithers out. Damon sits up, and he and Elena try to take in what Katherine just told them about Stefan.
