Damon: Damn straight I kissed our girlfriend, and I'd do it, again.
Stefan: I am so not talking about that, Damon.
Damon: Who do you think you're fooling? Besides, it's Klaus's fault Elena and I kissed, because he's the one that turned you into a dick.
Ric: How do you expect to restore our relationship, Damon, if you're using my pet name for you, on your brother?
Damon: Um, Cindy?
Recapper: *Waggles bottle of booze* Here Ric. Come on. Come here, boy. Good boy. Sit. Drink. Pass out.
Back at the hospital...
Caroline: Daddy, lie down and relax while you transition.
Bill: I can't. I'm too wired from wanting to transition.
Elena: Mr. Forbes? Who attacked you, anyhow?
Bill: I don't know. I was sneaking out the back door. I didn't see anything.
Recapper: Um, Caroline, aren't you curious about why your father was "sneaking" out of the hospital, if Meredith truly discharged him, as she claims?
Caroline: Not in this script! Now, Daddy, we need to get you some blood.
Bill: I'm well aware I'm transitioning, because studying everything ever about vampires has been my grand passion. But? I am so not drinking that shit.
Elena: You have to, or you'll die.
Bill: Look, Caroline. I love you. And I finally love vampire you. But um...I'd rather die than be like you, even though you got 200 percent more awesome, once you turned. Now get me out of here. All I can smell is blood.
Recapper: The people in the forum are going to be upset that you're not struggling more with this transition thing.
Bill: Block them out, Cindy. Mind over matter. Mind over matter.
Recapper: Why didn't I think of that?
That evening, at Gilbert Gables...
Ric: So, I'm doing weapons inventory!
Elena: And I've had a busy day. I stole evidence from a crime scene. Here's the knife that "killed" Bill.
Ric: I know that knife. It's from a crawl-space in the foyer.
Elena: You're a little weird, Ric.
Ric: I can tell you where each weapon belongs. Like these stakes over here -- they're from a duffel bag in Damon's car.
Elena: Okay, you're a lot weird, but I can't think about that right now, because the script tells me I have to say those are identical to the stake which killed Medical Examiner Brian, and yet, didn't you previously identify the murder weapon as being from a set at the lake house? Writers?
