Klaus: Thank you. You know, people seldom seem to appreciate how much more damned interesting I've made the younger Salvatore. Anyway, I reinsert the dagger in Kol's chest as I tease Elijah that I've more to reveal about our family (particularly Mother's passing) and remind him he's sworn to be loyal to me, "Always and Forever."
Elijah: I cannot tell you where to stick that oath, since doing so will tip my hand and reveal I am going to work behind your back, with Damon.
Klaus: Right. So, I plead with Elijah to help me destroy Stefan, so our family can once again be whole.
Elijah: I roll my eyes right into next scene, which we're not in, so I think we should hand off the baton, as it were.
Elena: Got it!
Recapper: Elena, you've been going through so much. Are you sure you have the time and energy to help with the recap?
Elena: Oh yeah. You've been really nice to me, Cindy, even when others have been hating on me. I'm glad to help. Besides, I've been training with Alaric. My stamina has doubled.
Damon: Let me put that to the test.
Alaric: Why I oughtta...
Recapper: Skedaddle, Evil Pixie Monster. You're not in this scene.
Elena: Right. At first it's just me, Alaric and Alaric's overgrown liver. He's hung over, yet again, and telling me about drunk dialing Meredith at 2:00 AM.
Alaric: Jenna had nothing on me, in the World's Worst Guardian competition.
Recapper: I hate that I love the chemistry between the two of you.
Recapper: Please to remain in character, whilst recapping, m'kay?
Doorbell: Ding Dong!
Elena: It's Sheriff Forbes. This can't be good.
Liz: I know, right? And it isn't. Anyhow, this is one of those conversations where we acknowledge this town is crawling with creatures of the night, so you've got my back, right?
Alaric: Your front's not so bad either, when they let you dress in civvies and do your hair.
Liz: I'm on duty, which means I can only flirt with Damon, and he's not here. Let's get down to business. Here's a bloody stake. It was driven into the heart of Medical Examiner Brian, the night of the Wickery Bridge fundraiser.
