Bonnie, no one-- not Caroline, not Elena, no one-- knows how to fight longer or harder or better than you. If you give up, I won't have anything left to hold on to. Please don't give up.

The relationship between the cured vampire/human doppelgänger, Stefan Salvatore and the witch, Bonnie Bennett.

Their relationship is mostly a friendly one, even though it went through some tension after Sheila Bennett's death and especially after Stefan murdered Enzo St. John in front of Bonnie. Although they do not interact much throughout the series, they can still count on each other as allies. Whenever things go south for them or their friends, they always seem to be on the same side.

The friendship between them is referred to as "Stefonnie" by fans.

While staring at Sybil lying on the prison room's bed, Stefan and Bonnie begin to converse casually about the day's events. Bonnie asks Stefan if he had to, would he save Damon and leave Enzo for dead. Not bother to lie to her, Stefan says that he would have chosen to save Damon without hesitation. Then Bonnie gives Stefan a look and explains that Enzo has been the one fighting Sybil's control. She also tells him that Enzo's fighting would have been for nothing if Stefan let him die and saved Damon.

In The Next Time I Hurt Somebody, It Could Be You, In The Simple Intimacy of the Near Touch, In You Made a Choice to Be Good, Stefan had already figured out that Bonnie removed Elena and her coffin-bed from her hideout in Brooklyn, New York City, New York.

Stefan scoffs at her as she attempts to use a wooden coach hanger as a weapon. He grabs her arm forcefully and slowly twists it as he mocks her for trying to protect Elena, but Bonnie mentions through her teeth that she is going to turn him into a human. Bonnie then injects Stefan with a dosage of the cure and this makes Stefan fall unconscious. While doing this, Bonnie is in tears at the death of Enzo, from Stefan's hands.


Stefan: "Excuse me. Hi."
Bonnie: "Hi."
Stefan: "Um, have you guys seen Elena?"
Bonnie: "I think she went home. I'm gonna give you Elena's cell number and her email. She is big on texting, and you can tell her... "I said so"."
Stefan: "Thank you."
-- Pilot

Stefan: "Bonnie! Bonnie! Bonnie! Hey."
Bonnie: "What just happened?"
Stefan: "You were in some kind of a trance."
Bonnie: "Did I do this?"
Stefan: "I think so, yes."
-- You're Undead to Me

Bonnie: "Elena is my best friend, and because she loves you I couldn't let you or Damon die in that fire."
Stefan: "I'm very grateful Bonnie, I hope you know that."
Bonnie: "I do, but I hope you know that things have to change. Damon has to change."
Stefan: "We both want the same thing."
Bonnie: "We both want to protect the people we care about. The difference is for you, Damon is one of them. You saw what I was able to do tonight. I know who I am now. If Damon spills, so much as one drop of innocent blood, I'll take him down...even if I have to take you with him."
Stefan: "Let's hope it doesn't come to that."
Bonnie: "Let's hope it doesn't..."
-- Founder's Day

Stefan: "What's the matter? Are you okay?"
Bonnie: "When I touched him, I saw something."
Stefan: "What do you mean? Like a vision?"
-- Plan B

Bonnie: "I know you love Elena and you wanna be with her, but it's risky. Too many people can get hurt."
Stefan: "Look, I want Elena back, yes, but it's more than that. I mean, what Katherine did to Jenna, it crossed a line. She has to be stopped before it happens again."
Bonnie: "I don't know, Stefan."
Stefan: "Look, Katherine knows me, right? She knows that I'm not gonna try something in a crowd full of innocent people. So that gives me an edge. I can catch her by surprise."
Bonnie: "I could do a spell to trap her. Like the tomb spell."
Stefan: "Right. We can isolate her away from the others. Please, Bonnie."
Bonnie: "Okay."
-- Masquerade

Stefan: "Are you okay?"
Bonnie: "It didn't work. I'm not strong enough. Even with help I can't do it."
-- The Sacrifice

Bonnie: "Then we need to go. Now. Before Jenna's been sacrificed. I can kill Klaus myself."
Stefan: "Bonnie... If you use that much power, you'll be dead. We've already been through this. It's not an option."
Bonnie: "Neither is letting Jenna die."
-- The Sun Also Rises

Bonnie: "I'm not sure this is going to work."
Stefan: "You've done a séance before, right? Contacted Emily Bennett? Maybe one of the witches might know how to help Damon."
Bonnie: "Let's just hope they want to."
-- As I Lay Dying

Stefan: "Hello Bonnie."
Bonnie: "Stefan! You followed me here?"
Stefan: "Yeah. It wasn't too hard. You should probably be more careful."
Bonnie: "What do you want with me?"
Stefan: "Relax! I just need your help."
Bonnie: "Why would I help you? Elena said you saved Klaus's life.
Stefan: "Let me fill you in on a little secret about Klaus. He kept his family with him at all times, daggered, stored in coffins, and now I have them and I need you to help keep them hidden."
Bonnie: "Are you out of your mind? You're just gonna make him angrier."
Stefan: "His family is his one weakness. As long as I have that, I can ruin him."
Bonnie: "I don't have enough power to hide four originals!"
Stefan: "You're a witch, you hate Klaus, and I can figure something out."
-- The New Deal

Stefan: "Thank you, Bonnie. For everything."
Bonnie: "I did't do it for you."
-- Do Not Go Gentle

Bonnie: "This can't be happening."
Stefan: "Please tell me that you figured out a way to bring us all back."
Bonnie: "I lost it, I'm sorry."
