Matt: Sure thing, but let me get my letterman's jacket out of my truck, first. You look cold.
Rebekah. I don't get... I'm a vampire. I'm a Viking. I don't need. *Swoon* Quick, let's get you back inside, Pudding Pop.
Recapper: GOOD DAMNED THING, BECKY!!!
Elijah: Inside, I catch up with Elena and ask her what Eloise Hawking wanted with her, anyhow.
Elena: I lie that she just wanted to apologize for ordering a hit on me.
Elijah: You decide if I'm playing along, or letting myself be deluded by this pretty young thing.
Eloise Fricking Hawking: It's time for the big champagne toast. Drink up, darlings.
Fandom: Wait. I think Elijah didn't drink. He faked that drink, right? He totally faked it.
Recapper: Sorry, loves. Julie Plec has confirmed that even Elijah drank. What I'm wondering, is if everyone at the party got a little Elena Essence, or at least, if all our key players (besides the Originals) did. There's no was Esther can be on the up and up, right? I mean, she's Eloise Fricking Hawking, and I'm pretty sure blood spells are never good news.
Klaus: Come upstairs, and let me show you my etchings.
Caroline: Really? Actually, they're pretty wonderful.
Klaus: You're making me all aw-shucksy. Did I mention I have a landscape hanging at the Hermitage -- not that anyone would notice. Have you been? I'll take you anywhere. Rome. Paris. Tokyo?
Caroline: Okay, you're totally bedazzling me despite myself, so I'm going to come right back at you with a bit of truth about collecting a hybrid servant army. Stop controlling Tyler. Give him his life back.
Klaus: Time for you to leave.
Caroline: Your daddy didn't love you, so you think no one will. You compel, sire, and try to buy off people. I'm ripping off this bracelet right now, and slapping it down on the table. You don't connect with people, because you don't try to understand them. Watch me as I swan out.
Klaus: Technically, shouldn't you strip off the dress, too?
Audience: *Standing ovation*
Back at the ball, Kol is bummed he and Becky didn't kill Matt. Becky lies that she didn't want to ruin her mother's night. Kol mocks her for being predictable -- softening after five seconds of attention. Rebekah tells him not to be rude -- just to leave Matt be. Kol, in a futile attempt to win me over, says, "As you wish," but he can just talk to the hand -- preferably his own.
