Caroline: Please don't leave me.
Recapper: Can I go?
Bill: Parents aren't supposed to outlive their children, Caroline. It's okay. This is life. This is what it means...to be human.
Recapper: Oh my word. Yes. Leaving now. *Sob*
Stefan: Why don't you just kill me now, so you'll have more time to open the coffin, once Damon brings it back.
Klaus: You're such a quitter. God. Wait. Elijah, what are you doing back here?
Elijah: I brought dessert. How about a couple of daggers?
Elijah: I've learned not to trust your vulgar promises, Klaus. We're doing this on my terms now. Meet my first term. You'll remember our brother, Kol? It's only been about a century. Our brother Finn might be more of a stretch -- a 900 year stretch of your memory.
Finn: *Stabs dagger through Klaus's hand*
Rebekah: *Appears. Stabs dagger in Klaus's gut* "This is for our mother."
Kol: *Restrains Klaus*
Elijah (to Stefan and Damon): You're free to go. This is family business.
Caroline holds her father's hand as he dies. Her mother stands by, supporting her. I run out of the room.
Elena: Caroline called. Her dad died. Will you stay with me until [Ric] wakes up? I can't lose any more family.
Matt: Of course.
Elena Haters: We hate your fricking guts, Elena, because
Damon and Stefan love you you, who have lost your father, mother, aunt, creepy-ass bio-mom, and (emotionally speaking) Stefan -- you, who had to separate from her brother to save that brother from life on this Hellmouth, cannot stand to wait alone, with Ric's corpse, hoping against hope that his ring hasn't completely lost all its mojo.
Bill's Ghost: Block them out, Cindy. Mind over matter. Mind over matter. Mind over matter.
Recapper: I'm trying, Bill. I'm mostly sorry you died, until I remember what you did to Caroline, but then I see how heartbroken Caroline is, and decide if she has forgiven you, who am I not to.
Bill's Ghost: Thank you. I think.
Matt: Come here, ladies, and get a big Pudding Pop hug. Guaranteed to cure what ails you.
