Klaus (to Elijah) : "I will get Rebekah back."
Lucien : "I have been called to dine with the Mikaelsons."
Camille : "Are they gonna serve your head on a platter?"
Elijah (To The Trinity) : "I rather enjoy Thanksgiving. The lies, the deceit."
Klaus : "Freya!"
Elijah (to Klaus) : "I can feel the holiday spirit already."

Marcel (to Elijah): "We need to find Rebekah!"
Hayley : "Please tell me that we're going to kill someone."
Elijah : "Oh we will kill many someones."
Klaus : "That's a strategy that I whole heartedly endorse."
Lucien : "I have been called to dine with the Mikaelsons."
Camille : "Are they gonna serve your head on a platter?"
Elijah (To The Trinity) : "I rather enjoy Thanksgiving. The lies, the deceit, the betrayal."
Klaus : "Freya!"
Lucien : "Oh this all escalated very quickly."
Elijah (to Klaus) : "I can feel the holiday spirit already!"

Elijah (to Hayley and Freya) : "If we're to start a war that is determined where allegiances lie."
Hayley (to Aurora): "Where is Rebekah?!"
Tristan (to Klaus): "Kill an Original, wipe out an entire line of rivals."
Lucien : "One shall fall by family."
Elijah : "Niklaus will always put family first."

Camille : "Do you really think you can trick my friends into thinking I'm fine? Someone's gonna notice that I'm gone and when they do, they'll track me here."
Lucien : "Well, not within the next few hours. By which time you'll be free of vervain and I'll be able to compel you to forget everything, including all manner of tortures and punishments I might yet employ should you continue to prove disrespectful. That'll be the nanny. This is Anton. A very loyal and very dangerous friend. Tread carefully. Oh, and, uh, Anton, if should you not hear from me by nightfall, go ahead and kill her. But do it quickly. Oh, and for god's sake, don't ask if she has any final words -- you'll be here for the weekend."

Marcel : "We need to find Rebekah!"
Elijah : "Marcel, I will not rest until my sister is found."
Elijah (to Klaus) : "I can feel the holiday spirit already!"
Elijah (to Klaus) : "Systematically turn them against one another, and then devastate their pitiful alliance!"
Marcel : "The Strix want you to help them take down the Mikaelsons. Now, if you say no, they will kill you. If you say yes, Klaus will do something much worse."
Davina: "Marcel, you still see me as this little girl in the attic. I'm not that girl anymore. I don't run from anyone."
Elijah (to Klaus) : "Your sister is missing."
Aurora : "Well... She's not exactly missing."
Klaus : "I will get Rebekah back. Trust me. Keeping Aurora close garners the goodwill we need."
Elijah : "Well, it is a bold -- if somewhat lecherous-- plan. Will you employ the same tactic when it comes time to retrieve the medallion from Lucien and Tristan?"
Klaus : "They're not really my type."
