Stefan: Caroline. You have been my... my friend, my conscience, my sounding board. You saw light in me when all I saw was darkness. You saved me from despair. You told me once that I would fall madly in love without realizing it. And that's what happened. Day by day, bit by bit, year by year. With you.

Caroline: I remember saying that to you. We were dancing at my prom. It's funny the things we remember out of all the years that go by. I remember how you told me that when I was ready for you, you would be ready for me. I'm ready now. I think a part of me has been ready for this day since the moment I first saw you, the new mystery guy in the hallway at school. I will always remember this moment. A hundred years from now, I will remember this moment for the both of us.

Stefan and Caroline's vows to each other at their wedding in We're Planning a June Wedding

The relationship between the cured vampire doppelgänger, Stefan Salvatore and the vampire, Caroline Forbes.

Their relationship at first wasn't very strong. In Season One, Caroline felt an attraction for Stefan, but he rejected her immediately because he was interested in Elena. Later Caroline started dating Stefan's brother, Damon. Stefan saves her after Damon attempted to kill her. Shortly after, she started dating Matt, Elena's ex-boyfriend. In Season Two, their relationship changed due to Caroline's transformation into a vampire. When Damon was about to stab Caroline, Stefan stopped him, promising her that he would never let anything happen to her. He became her mentor, teaching her how to control her emotions and thirst for blood. In one conversation, he told her that she reminded him to his best friend Lexi who was killed by Damon.

Stefan comes across as quite protective of Caroline throughout the series. They became good friends in Season Three in spite of little screen time together. They became really close by Season Four. Caroline told him that every time he feels he's about to lose control she will be there for him and they have given each other pivotal emotional support on many occasions. Notably, they have always been able to help each other with the other's relationship problems. Caroline always supported his relationship with Elena up to the point where she herself developed romantic feelings for Stefan. She was the person who revealed to Stefan both that Elena was sired to Damon and that Elena had slept with Damon. Stefan, on the other hand, comforted Caroline during the emotional fallout of her sleeping with Klaus. Stefan and Caroline share their secrets and always help each other. In Season Five, when Stefan lost his memories due to a spell, Caroline was the only person that he trusted immediately and he also blatantly flirted with her on at least one occasion, telling her she was "much hotter in person". After regaining his memories, when Caroline believed that him and Elena were getting back together, she seemed quite jealous, which was a drastic departure from before, when she always supported their relationship. Upon learning of Bonnie's death, Stefan told Caroline that he would always be there for her as she has always been there for him.

In Season Six, Caroline and Stefan haven't seen and spoken in four months after the death of Bonnie and Damon. Stefan didn't answer her calls and she did her best to find out what's up with him. Enzo found Stefan and took Caroline with him. She was upset that Stefan had decided to move on with his life and try to forget all about the old, Damon's death and her. After a while Stefan became aware that Caroline's feelings for him had turned romantic and made several attempts to reconcile, but their friendship remained strained. After her mother was diagnosed with cancer, Stefan stuck by Caroline through her grief and they made up. Their friendship deepened, culminating in a kiss, but Stefan was unsure of how to move forward, given the fact that Caroline's mother had just died, and Damon had planted doubts in his mind.

During Caroline's mom's funeral ceremony, Stefan overcame the doubts in his mind and realized that he had developed deep feelings for Caroline - referring to it as being potentially "something even better" than his previous romances, even if he could not quite define them - but after the service, he arrived at her address too late to tell her since she had already flipped her humanity switch in order to cope with her mother's death and in the belief that her love was unrequited. Stefan reached out to her - realizing that he is Caroline's trigger back to humanity - but was backed into a corner and forced to turn off his own when she attempted to kill his niece, Sarah Salvatore. Afterwards, Stefan, without his humanity, terrorizes Caroline and forces her to "lose control" and give into her murderous impulses as a form of revenge for burdening him with guilt when his humanity comes back. Stefan succeeds and after feeding on a bystander victim together, the two have sex for the first time.

In Season Seven, they decide to give each other space while Caroline grieves the death of her mother and tries to move on. Stefan and Caroline team up against a new threat in Mystic Falls, The Heretics and while boarding up Caroline's house, the two share a moment. Caroline later gets kidnapped and taken by Enzo who was following orders from Stefan and Damon's mother Lily. Stefan makes an attempt to save her but fails due to the fact that Damon bailed at the last minute. Stefan then confronts Damon angrily. Valerie casts a spell on Caroline which turns her skin to vervain making it hard for vampires to harm her.

Caroline then discovers from Nora after she gives Caroline Stefan's old journal that Stefan was romantically involved with Valerie, a Heretic. Caroline gets released by Lily but still had "vervain skin". A few days later, Stefan and Caroline still cannot make physical contact and try to convince two of the heretics, Mary Louise and Nora, to siphon the spell off of Caroline. They decide to attend The "Heaven and Hell" ball where they force Nora to siphon the spell off of Caroline after threatening Mary Louise's life. Stefan and Caroline then kiss and have sex for the for the second time.

After being apart for three years however, their relationship is tested being Stefan has been on the run with Valerie Tulle for three years. After going on the run together when Bonnie Bennett turns into the next Supernatural Huntress, Caroline and Stefan bond and maintain a new friendship. After Gods and Monsters, Alaric and Caroline break up being her heart truly belongs to Stefan. Caroline and Stefan talk, sharing a kiss together. Currently, Stefan and Caroline are dating once again. Shortly after this, Stefan proposes to Caroline and she accepts his wedding proposal; they are currently engaged as of Season Eight.

During the eighth season, they struggle once again both as a couple and to save their friends from Sybil. Later on, after Damon and Enzo are free from Sybil's mind control (Damon's humanity remains off however), Cade comes into the picture after Stefan makes a deal with him. Caroline is separated from Stefan once again and he is forced to find victims (with Damon) for Cade to put into his hellish dimension. Due to the acts Stefan does against her friends and her, Caroline throws her engagement ring at Stefan, but he doesn't care being his humanity is off. However, Bonnie forced her hand, after Stefan kills Enzo and tries to kill an unconscious Elena, by forcing the cure to vampirism into Stefan. The Cure turns Stefan human and back to himself, with humanity. This renders Stefan useless to Cade, but Stefan makes efforts to apologize for his actions, which Caroline eventually accepts and their plans for marriage are back on (despite Stefan being human again).

After Cade's eventual death, the Mystic Falls Gang learns that Katherine Pierce has taken over Hell and plans revenge against them and Mystic Falls. Caroline and Stefan stage a public wedding, partly for themselves as well, to draw Katherine out. While they do marry successfully, the most Katherine does is give Caroline her old necklace for the wedding. After the wedding, Vicki Donovan starts creating trouble for them by assisting Katherine's plans. In the end, Stefan decides to sacrifice his life by making sure Katherine died in Mystic Falls' hellfire, created by Vicki by ringing the Donovan bell. Caroline tearfully says ‘goodbye' to Stefan after hearing his phone call. After Stefan's death and after Elena awakens from her magical slumber, Elena tells Caroline that Stefan heard her last words to him and Caroline tearfully smiles. In Stefan's honor (as well as Damon's even though he still lives), Caroline starts the Salvatore Boarding School for supernatural kids, which continues to keep Stefan's memory alive for herself as well as her friends. Caroline is currently widowed due to Stefan being permanently deceased.

The friendship and romantic pairing is known as "Steroline" by the fans.

Bonnie: You got all of that in one day?
Caroline: Oh, please, I got all that between third and fourth period. We're planning a June wedding.
Caroline: So, you were born in Mystic Falls?
Stefan: Mm-Hmm. And moved when I was still young.
Caroline to Stefan: So, Stefan, if you're new, then you don't know about the party tomorrow.
Caroline: Hey! You made it!
Stefan: I did.
Caroline: Well, let's get you a drink.
Stefan: Well, I'm..
Caroline: Oh, come on
Caroline: Hey! There you are. Have you been down to the falls yet? Because they are really cool at night. And I can show you. If you want.
Stefan: I think you've had too much to drink.
Caroline: Well, of course I have. So—
Stefan: Caroline, you and me is not going to happen, Sorry.

Caroline: Matt tries, but he's just having a really hard time. You have to understand that they were each other's first. You know, like, from the sandbox.
Stefan: That's a really nice scarf.
Caroline: Mm. Thank you, it's new.
Stefan: Can I see it? I mean, would you mind taking it off?
Caroline: Oh, I can't.
Stefan: Why not? You ok?
Caroline: Um... All I know is that I can't take it off.
Damon: What are you two kids talking about?
Stefan: I was just commenting on her scarf.
--Friday Night Bites

Stefan: Damon told you to ask me to dance. Didn't he?
Caroline: Now why would he do that?
Stefan: Would you like one?
(Stefan grabs a glass of champagne for himself and Caroline.)

Caroline: Ok, just tell me if you see my mom.
--Family Ties

Caroline: Stefan, where is Damon? He has some serious apologizing to do.
Stefan: He's gone, Caroline.
Caroline: When is he coming back?
Stefan: He's not coming back. I'm sorry.
Elena: This is a good thing, Caroline.
Caroline: I know that.
--You're Undead to Me

Caroline: I'm thinking nothing huge, just a dinner at the grill maybe a late movie.
Stefan: You mean like a double date?
Caroline: Two pair out on a Friday night coupled. Yeah a double date.
--There Goes the Neighborhood

Caroline: She hates me! Bonnie hates me.
Stefan: No, she's just in shock, we all are.
Caroline: And what about Matt? (She cries)
Stefan: Hush. One thing at one time, let's get this blood off, come on.
Caroline: I'm a m-m-murderer. I'm a monster!
Stefan: Look at me, your emotions are heightened right now, it's part of the transformation, it's completely normal, I promise you okay?
(Caroline sees her face changing in the mirror and starts to panic.)
Caroline: Why does this keeping happening to my face?!
Stefan: Look at me, look at me, look at me! Caroline, Caroline! Look at me! Look at my face, look at my face! (His face has changed too) You see that? When you feel the blood rushing, you tell yourself that you're going to get through it, that you're strong enough. Yes, yes, no matter how good it feels to give yourself over to it, you fight it off, you bury it. Watch me, watch me. (His face is normal again) It's the only way you're gonna survive this thing. Try.
(She takes a few breaths, her face is normal again.)

Stefan: Well, you sort of skipped the serial killer and went straight to vampire. Caroline, if you're not serious about all of this I think you should tell me.
Caroline: No I am. Look, I swear that I am okay? But it's just… I haven't been in the sun for days and everyone is at the swimming hole having fun and Matt is there! And he finally told me that he loved me but I have been blowing him off and now you want me to eat bunnies and I'm kind of freaking out okay?!
(Stefan is laughing)
Caroline: And now you're laughing at me.
Stefan: No, no, I'm not laughing. None of this is funny, trust me. It's just that..
Caroline: What?!
Stefan: When someone becomes a vampire, all of their natural behaviors get sort of amplified.
Caroline: What do you mean?
Stefan: I mean… as a human I cared deeply for people, how they felt. If they were hurting I felt their pain and I felt guilty if I was the one who caused it and as a vampire all of that got… magnified.
Caroline: So you're saying that now I'm basically an insecure, neurotic control freak... on crack?
Stefan: Well, I wasn't gonna say it like that but… hey, listen, let's hunt okay? And then after that we'll go to the swimming hole.
Caroline: Really?
Stefan: Yeah. Matt is the closest connection that you have to your humanity and I think that being around him is a good thing.
Caroline: Okay.
Caroline: Why are you looking at him with your "serious vampire" look?
Stefan: My wha- my "serious vampire" look?
Caroline: Mhmm. I mean it's different from your "worried vampire" look, neither of which stray too far from your "Hey, it's Tuesday" look.
Stefan: I get it, okay. You think I'm… you think I'm too serious. Is that it?
Caroline: I mean I was not gonna say it like that but…
Stefan: Hey, I saw that. You compelled her.
Caroline: Yeah, she deserved it.
Stefan: Caroline, nobody deserves to have their mind messed with for shallow reasons.
Caroline: You know, why is everyone sticking up for Amy freaking Bradley?
Stefan: You're letting the jealousy to get the best of you.
Caroline: Oh, so now I have magnified jealousy issues, too. That's great.
Stefan: I told you this wasn't gonna be easy.
Caroline: Yeah, well, I might as well have stayed dead. My entire personality is killing me.
(He smiles)
Caroline: Shut up.

Stefan: No, no, no, stop. Listen to me. We need to get out of these woods now. We need to leave.
Caroline: What was that?
Stefan: Matt, stay down. Do not move.

Tyler: Hey! What are you two doing?
Stefan: What are you doing?
(The werewolf rushes into Caroline. She falls on the floor, the werewolf is on her. Stefan rushes on the werewolf with his powers and pushes him.)
Caroline: What are we gonna do about Tyler?
Stefan: I took care of it and I will get Matt on vervain, it'll keep you from being able to compel him and also to keep you from drinking his blood.
Caroline: I can't believe I hurt him.
Stefan: I know.
Caroline: He is the one person on this entire planet that I never wanted to hurt.
Stefan: It's not going to get any easier. You're just gonna have to work that much harder.
Caroline: I shouldn't be with him, should I? Because if there is any danger…
Stefan: I'm the last person to make that kind of decision for you. If I had follow my own advice, I would walked away from Elena a long time ago.
Caroline: You ever think you should have?
Stefan: I know I should have, I just can't.

Stefan: What did you do?
Caroline: Told Tyler I'm a vampire.
(Caroline and Stefan are sitting at a table. Caroline is eating)
Caroline: Sorry to drag you here but if I don't eat, I get those kill innocent people urges. Tyler totally has those too by the way.
Stefan: Yeah, what else did you say to him?
Caroline: Not much. I was trying to keep the questions to a minimum. Are you mad?
Stefan: Yes Caroline. As a matter of fact, I am a little mad. I mean, you put yourself a risk. If Damon finds out…
Caroline: But you're not gonna tell him, are you?
Stefan: No, of course not. He would kill you.
Caroline: Always lookin' out for me.
Stefan: Yeah. Well, you don't exactly make it very easy on me.
Caroline: Then why do you do it? Why are you such a good friend to me?
Stefan: I don't know. I guess you, uh, remind me of someone. My, uh, my best friend, Lexi.
Caroline: You have a friend?
Stefan: You say that with such a discouraging amount of surprise, Caroline!
Caroline: No I just… sorry. I just… tell me about her.
Stefan: I will, some other time. I got to go.
Caroline: Wait! No! What do we do about Tyler? I don't want Damon to kill him ‘cause there's a full moon coming up and Tyler is totally freaking out about it.
(Stefan and Caroline are still talking)
Stefan: Okay, now I'm leaving.
Caroline: Wait…!
Stefan: No, no, no, Caroline, you have two seconds to come clean.
Caroline: What do you mean?
Stefan: I'd believe the whole innocent act a little bit better if I didn't know how good you were at providing a distraction on demand. Where is Elena?
Caroline: I can't tell you.
Stefan: You can't tell me? Are you kidding me?
Caroline: I'm sorry but I… I can't tell you.
Stefan: Caroline! Elena was kidnapped, she could have been killed and you're seriously not gonna tell me where she is?
Caroline: She's not in any danger. I would not have let her put herself in danger.
Stefan: Put herself in danger where? What do you…? She's with Damon isn't she?
Caroline: Ew, no.
Stefan: Then where… where is she? Listen, if you're my friend like you've been pretending to be all day, then you'll tell me where she is.
Caroline: Stefan, I am your friend but I'm also Elena's friend and I'm sorry but I'm not going to tell you where she is.
(He looks at her and leaves)
-- Katerina

Stefan: What's wrong?
Caroline: Tyler knows about you and Damon. He knows that Damon killed Mason. I didn't say a word.
Stefan: It's that woman, Jules. She had a run in with Damon.
Caroline: Tyler was so upset. The look on his face, he was so betrayed.
Stefan: Wow, this is bad.
Caroline: You're not gonna tell Damon, are you?
Stefan: No, he already wants to kill him. He thinks all werewolves should die and he's not wrong to think that, Caroline. I mean, what if Tyler tries to retaliate? He has every right to. He could get himself killed.
Caroline: Well, we're not gonna let that happen. We have to get to him and reason with him before he does something stupid. You have to talk to him. Just try to explain, you know? You always know the right things to say, okay? He and I… we're friends.
Stefan to Tyler Lockwood: Look about Caroline, no matter what her flaws are, when push comes to shove, you're gonna want that girl on your side. She's your friend. Stop being a dick to her.
Stefan: (about Caroline) Hurt her again and you're dead.
Jules: I hurt her again and she's dead. Bring Tyler to me, the clearing by Wickery Falls. You have 20 minutes until she dies.
Stefan: Where's Caroline?
Jules: Locked up tight.
Stefan: Let her go and I'll release Tyler. It doesn't have to get any messier than it already has. I'm not your enemy, Jules.
Jules: It's a little late to be waving the white flag, don't you think?
Stefan: You need to leave town. No one else has to get hurt.
Jules: I'm not leaving without Tyler.
Stefan: Tyler is free to make his own decisions as soon as you release Caroline.
Stefan: So, is your mom home?
Caroline: No. She's at work.
Stefan: I can come in if you want me to.
Caroline: I'm fine, Stefan.
Stefan: You don't have to pretend with me. Anybody would be upset after what you went through tonight.
Caroline: I'm okay ... I'm not girly little Caroline anymore. I can handle myself.
Stefan: You sure can.
Caroline: I just really want to go shower so…
Stefan: Okay.
Caroline: Good night.
Stefan: Good night.
Caroline: Hey.
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: What's going on?
Stefan: I was a bit worried about you. After everything you went through tonight.
Caroline: I'm fine.
Stefan: Good, but ... just in case, I, um, brought some back-up. (Bonnie and Elena arrive behind him)
Elena: We're gonna slumber it.
Bonnie: We haven't done it in ages.
Caroline: (cries) Hi…
-- Daddy Issues

(Caroline goes out of her house and goes to her car. She's on the phone with Stefan)
Caroline: I can't find him anywhere. He's not at home. He's not answering his phone.
Stefan: How could you let him go?
Caroline: My mom walked in. He took off. I didn't know what to do.
Stefan: Did your mom hear anything?
Caroline: No. She just thinks we're fighting but he knows about me, and he's freaking out about Vicki.
Stefan: All right. Listen. You have to find him. You have to calm him down. Compel him if you have to. Is he still on the vervain?
Caroline: I slip it into his soda when he's at work, but I didn't get to last night, so it's out of his system. He has a catering shift at the Lockwood's' today. I'm gonna try there.
(She hangs up)
-- Know Thy Enemy

Stefan: Hey, guys.
Matt: Hey, man, what's up?
Stefan: Hey. Do you mind if I steal your date for a moment?
Matt: No, not all. I'll get us something to drink.
Stefan: Thanks (Matt leaves. Stefan dances with Caroline)
Caroline: What's wrong?
Stefan: Klaus is here.
Caroline: What?!
Stefan: Yeah.
Caroline: Where?
Stefan: We have no idea. But keep your eye out for anything that might be weird, ok?
-- The Last Dance

Stefan: Rebekah is our target so we distract her and catch her off guard. To do that we need to keep Klaus separate and occupied. (Stefan looks at Caroline.) Caroline.
Caroline: Why do I always have to be Klaus bait?
Damon: Because he's obsessed with you.
Caroline: I miss well-adjusted Stefan.
Stefan: It's the blood. The bloodline. It has to be. Think about it: Finn turned Sage, Sage turned Troy. They're all part of the same vampire bloodline that originated with Finn.
Caroline: Wait, so when an Original dies every vampire turned from their bloodline dies along with them? Because that would mean…
Damon: If the Originals die, so do all of you. The entire vampire species would… it'd just be dead.
-- The Murder of One

Stefan:We have no idea. But keep your eye out for anything that might be weird, They're at the old cemetery. Jeremy and Matt are headed there right now.
Caroline: You let them go?! They're gonna get themselves killed!
Stefan:We have no idea. But keep your eye out for anything that might be weird, I didn't have a choice, Caroline. We're useless right now stuck in here.
Caroline: Hey, she'll be fine. Elena always manages to find her way through this stuff.
Stefan:We have no idea. But keep your eye out for anything that might be weird, Yeah, well I'm just as worried about what Esther is up to. She lead Klaus here for a reason. If she succeeds in whatever she's doing.
-- Do Not Go Gentle

(Stefan is pulling the wooden bullets out of Tyler's torso with a pair of metal tongs. Caroline is standing nearby, watching.)
Caroline: Please tell me that's the last one.
(Stefan observes one of the bullets.)
Stefan: These were specially carved; the length, the width. If you were a normal vampire, you'd be dead.
(Stefan places the wooden bullet in a glass of alcohol to clean it off.)
Tyler: This guy knew what he was doing. His gloves must have been steeped in vervain. He was looking for a vampire and he didn't hesitate for a second when he found one.
Stefan: (observing the bullet) These etchings….
(He touches the bullet, but is burned by it.)
Caroline: Are the bullets spelled?
Stefan: I don't know. They're something.

Caroline: Does she seem a little off balance to you?
Stefan: Yeah, she's channeling all her emotions into rage. It makes her feel like she has purpose. I used to do that too when I was, you know.
Caroline: Ripper you?
Stefan: Yeah. She needs to come to terms with it, confront it, let it in before she can let it go.
Caroline: (nods) You're good at this, you know that? You saved my vampire life, now you're saving hers.
(They start to walk off together.)
Caroline: You should write a book. Go on the View.
Stefan: Hm.
(Stefan is in the parlor with a drink in hand. Caroline opens the front door and enters the house.)
Caroline: Hey.
Stefan: Hey. Thanks for coming.
(Stefan sits down and Caroline walks into the room.)
Caroline: Not every day I get summoned by a Salvatore. So, what's up?
Stefan: (sighs) Do you remember what you were like before you turned?
Caroline: You mean an insecure control freak?
(Stefan laughs. Caroline sits down.)
Caroline: Yeah.
Stefan: You grew into yourself when you became a vampire. You changed. And Elena, she's changing too, and I want her to be able to enjoy it. Without all the guilt and shame that I went through; and there was a moment today when she did. And when I'm with her, every bone in my body tells me to join her. To enjoy it. But, I know that if I do, even a little, I risk becoming him. The Ripper. I love her and I don't want to hold her back.
Caroline: But you don't know how to be around her and still resist that urge.
Stefan: Damon promised he'd help me stay off the edge, but he and I, we're not in a very good place right now. Not when it comes to her. I just thought, you're so good at it, at being a vampire.
Caroline: (laughs) Because of you, Stefan. I'm good at it because of you. Come to me, whenever you want, and I won't let you lose control.
--The Rager

(Stefan is talking on the phone to Caroline)
Stefan: He's got Elena. I need Tyler to get the other hybrids away, so I can get her out. I know I'm probably asking the impossible but...
Caroline: Actually, you're not.
(Stefan looks surprised.)
(Tyler is talking to Stefan in the living room. Caroline is with them.)
Tyler: Hayley is the one that helped me break the sire bond. She showed me what to do, how to help. When she showed up here I thought it was just coincidence, but it turns out she's been helping one of them, her friend Chris. And she came to help us get the rest of them out from under Klaus.
Stefan: So... are you telling me that Chris isn't sired anymore?
Caroline: That's exactly what he's telling you.
--We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes

(Stefan is in the woods doing push-ups as well as talking to Caroline on the phone.)
Caroline: What do you mean you're not coming? I don't need to remind you that your Miss Mystic Falls attendance record totally sucks.
(Caroline is walking down the stairs with a clipboard and preparing for the pageant. Her phone is to her ear as she continues to talk to Stefan.)
Caroline: Besides, you're a founding family member, by definition you have to be here.
(She walks over to a table where Gabby is arranging some flowers. Caroline grabs the flowers from her hands and rearranges them to her satisfaction. She walks away.)
Stefan: Elena and I broke up. By definition, I don't need to be anywhere.
Caroline: Did that sound as depressing to you as it did to me?
Stefan: Oh, I'm not depressed. I just want to rip into someone's artery and feed until I can't breathe anymore.
(Stefan stops doing push-ups and lies down with his back against the ground.)
Caroline: Well, you can't. As your sober sponsor, I am not going to let that happen. Try and sublimate.
(Stefan stares up at the sky in silence for a moment.)
Stefan: She said she has feelings for Damon.
Caroline: What?! She can't have feelings for Damon! He's… Damon. And you're… you. And I'm – revolted. You know, I'm gonna talk to her. I'm going to shake some sense into her clearly diseased brain.
Stefan: Yeah, well I don't know what good that'll do. Elena's right, being a vampire really has changed her.
Caroline: All the more reason you need to cure her.
(Elena walks down the steps. Caroline sees her and Elena starts to walk over to her.)
Caroline: (to Stefan) Look, I got to go. Be careful. And remember, there is sublimating and then there is insanity.
Stefan: I'll be fine. Bye.
(He hangs up. Caroline puts down her phone and looks at Elena.)
(Stefan pours a shot for himself and Caroline. They are sitting in the living room, talking to one another.)
Stefan: Elena's right. I just...I need to let go.
Caroline: No, you're right, Stefan. It's not pretty and it's not easy, but you can't give up on her.
Stefan: Caroline, she looked me in the eye and she told me to move on.
Caroline: She's lost. Okay, you and her, epic. Her and Damon, ugh, God. There's something wrong with her. Just promise me you won't stop looking for the cure.
Stefan: Klaus won't let me even if I wanted to.
(Stefan places his shot glass down and pours himself another one.)
Caroline: Why does he care? He doesn't even want it.
Stefan: He wants to keep Elena human so that he can make more hybrids.
(Caroline sits back into her chair and relaxes.)
Caroline: He's gonna need them. Tyler's almost got all of them unsired.
(Suddenly, Caroline looks as if she just realized something.)
Caroline: Oh my God.
(Stefan looks up at her, confused.)
Caroline: Oh. My. God.
(Stefan non-verbally asks her what she's going on about.)
(Caroline stands up, still shocked by the discovery she has figured out.)
Caroline: I was trying to understand why Klaus was so intrigued by Damon and Elena. He said I would figure it out. This is what he was talking about.
Stefan: What are you talking about?
Caroline: Think about it. Every time Elena's had a problem, Damon's been the magic solution.
Caroline: Today, Elena was worried about Jeremy. Who swoops in and tells her to relax? Damon. And she listens.
(Stefan still looks confused.)
Caroline: When Elena started feeding, who said that she could only drink blood straight from the vein?
(Stefan seems to be realizing what Caroline is getting at.)
Stefan: Damon.
Caroline: And when she tried to drink from animals?
Stefan: She couldn't keep it down.
Caroline: And blood bags?
Stefan: Same thing.
Caroline: Name one vampire in the history of vampires who couldn't drink blood from a blood bag. Damon said she couldn't, so she couldn't.
Caroline: Damon likes the red dress. Elena likes the red dress.
Stefan: Damon says kill Connor and she kills Connor.
Caroline: What if it's possible? Damon's blood made her a vampire, right?
(Stefan looks up at her.)
Caroline: It's rare, but it happens. What if this is one of those times?
(Caroline sits back down.)
Caroline: What if this is really happening?
(Stefan leans forward.)
Stefan: Elena's sired to Damon.
--My Brother's Keeper

Caroline: We need to do something.
(Caroline pulls her phone out and is ready to call Elena.)
Stefan: Wait, no, hold on Caroline. (He stops her from calling her.) This isn't gossip. You can't just drop this on her before we know what's happening for sure.
Caroline: I need to talk to Tyler, okay? Maybe he'll know what to do.
Stefan: Alright talk to Tyler but please don't tell anyone else. If this is true, then it may have influence on Elena's every action and emotion since she became a vampire.
(Caroline is sitting in a chair in the living room while Stefan is talking to her.)
Caroline: You feel sorry for him?
Stefan: Look, there's no other way to break a vampire sire bond. As much as you and I both hate it, Damon does love Elena. Now he has to completely let her go. Ever imagine having to do that?
Caroline: I'm sorry I told her. Okay, I kind of didn't have a choice. All I know is he better do what he's supposed to do.
(Stefan sits down.)
Stefan: He'll do it. He's not as bad as he wants you to think. He'll do what he needs to do, he told me he would.
Caroline: Is that all he told you?
Stefan: What do you mean?
Caroline: Nothing. It's just (She sighs.) It's just - how can you trust him?
Stefan: Because I think he loves her as much as I do. He can't be selfish with her. Not anymore.
(Caroline nods understandingly.)
--We'll Always Have Bourbon Street

(Stefan is sitting on a couch in the library, reading through some old papers. His phone goes off and he answers it.)
Stefan: Hey, sorry, I know I'm late.
(Caroline is on the other end, walking across the town square through the Winter Wonderland.)
Caroline: If I'm gonna be a friend in your time of need, then you to need to work on your punctuality. I'm in a crisis. Where are you?
Stefan: I'm at my house. Why? What's wrong?
Caroline: My boyfriend is a dumbass martyr. Wait, and why are you at your house? Aren't you trying to keep your distance from Elena?
Stefan: Well, she's not here anymore. Damon took Jeremy to the Gilbert lake house with Bonnie so I guess her house is safe for her again. Hey, listen, I got Klaus to tell me a little bit more about this Hunter's sword. You know that map in Jeremy's tattoo? The sword decodes it. It's literally the key to finding the cure.
Caroline: Klaus told you this?
Stefan: Yeah, why?
Caroline: And did he happen to hand over the sword for safekeeping?
Stefan: Uh, what do you think?
(Caroline sighs.)
Stefan: What's wrong?
Caroline: We need to get our hands on that sword. Like today. Tyler and his hybrids are taking out Klaus tonight.
--O Come, All Ye Faithful
(Stefan is leaning against the wall in the alleyway. Caroline approaches him and he stands up to face her)
Caroline: Hey.
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Did you find the sword?
Stefan: Nope.
Caroline: What are we gonna do now?
Stefan: Klaus is the only shot we have at finding the cure. We need him. Tyler has to call it off.
Tyler: Well, that's not gonna happen.
(Stefan turns around and looks at Tyler who has appeared on the stairway. Tyler looks at Caroline)
Caroline to Stefan: Stefan, it's me. That little werewolf slut has lost her mind. Go to the Lockwood Cellar and make sure that Rebekah's body is still there. I'm gonna find Tyler. Hayley is trying to screw this up.
(Caroline walks into the parlor where Stefan is sitting on the sofa.)
Caroline: Matt can't find April. I can't reach Tyler. This is a disaster.
(Caroline sits down on the sofa across from Stefan. Stefan remains silent and Caroline looks at him.)
Caroline: Is this you in crisis mode? Cause it's a lot more subtle than mine.
Stefan: You know I thought I'd be happier watching Klaus get led away to his slaughter, but for some reason I can't help but feel kind of guilty.
Caroline: Yeah, you and me both. All day I've been trying to remind myself of all the horrible things he's done.
Stefan: See that's the thing, we've all done horrible things.
(Stefan gets up and stands next to the sofa, looking at Caroline.)
Stefan: And I'm sitting here, trying to figure out what makes us any better than him. And I think it's just that, we have family we can trust.
Caroline: Yeah, you're right, Stefan. Trust is everything. Have you heard from Damon?
Stefan: Yeah, he's still with Jeremy at the lake house.
Caroline: Did he happen to mention where Elena was?
(Caroline avoids his gaze until the end of the question, when she glances up at him. Stefan looks at her with a questioning gaze. He moves closer towards her.)
Stefan: Wait, why are you – why are you asking me this?
(Caroline looks up at him with a very meaningful look, but doesn't say anything. Stefan can guess as much from the look she is giving him though. He sits back down the couch.)
Stefan: They're together, aren't they?
(Stefan looks incredibly upset. Caroline also looks guilty and sad for Stefan.)
Stefan: How together are they?
(Caroline looks away and doesn't answer.)
Stefan: Caroline, tell me. How together are they?
(Caroline looks down at the ground and licks her lips nervously. She still doesn't respond, but Stefan finally realizes just how together Damon and Elena are.)
--O Come, All Ye Faithful

(All the students are coming out of the gym. Caroline is walking through the crowd talking on her phone. The shots alternate between Caroline at the school and Stefan at the Grill.)
Caroline: Hey, you just missed the mandatory school assembly.
Stefan: Well, that's because I'm at a mandatory all-day drinking party.
Caroline: Seriously? You decided to go on a ripper bender now?
Stefan: My brother slept with Elena. It kinda puts a damper on things.
Caroline: First of all, you weren't supposed to know that, and second of all, Tyler is already spiraling, and he gets top priority.
Stefan: His mother just died. What do you expect?
Caroline: I'm his girlfriend. I expect him to talk to me. Instead, he's all angry, and it doesn't help that everyone keeps referring to his mother's death as an accident, which is just a really polite way of saying she was drunk.
Stefan: You think Klaus killed her?
Caroline: Hmm, I don't think she drowned in her martini glass. Just, get it together. I can't do it alone.
(Caroline hangs up)
(Stefan calls Caroline.)
Caroline: I'm only ready to talk to you if you're ready to rejoin civilization.
Stefan: How would you like to drive the white oak stake through Rebekah's heart?
Caroline: If it means that you're not drinking your way through the Mystic Grill, sure.
--After School Special

(Elena is still sitting with Jeremy, smoothing her hand over his face and holding his hands. Downstairs in the kitchen, Caroline is dumping a bucket of water into the sink and talking to Stefan)
Caroline: How long has she been like that?
Stefan: Ever since we found his body. She hasn't said anything except that she's waiting for him to wake up.
Caroline: But he's not going to wake up. She knows that, right?
(Stefan holds a finger up to his lips to silence her. He walks over to the sink and runs the tap, using the noise to cover their conversation)
Stefan: Look. Deep down, I think she has to, but we're talking about Elena here. She feels grief more powerfully than anyone else. I think her denial is the one thing protecting her from letting it all in.
Caroline: But she can't stay like that forever.
Stefan: I know, but I don't want to be the one to break her out of it, not until we know that Bonnie is safe, not until we get Damon over here to, you know--
Caroline: Use the sire bond to convince her that everything is okay?
(Stefan nods but then Elena joins them in the kitchen)
Elena: I'm not in denial. [Stefan turns off the tap.] I know that he was supernatural, but did you see? His tattoo is gone. The tattoo had the spell that opened Silas' chamber. Maybe it being gone means that he's fulfilled his supernatural destiny. Maybe he's back to normal. It's possible, right?
Caroline: Elena...
Elena: It's possible, Caroline. There's a chance. It may be minuscule, but it's hope and I'm gonna hold on to that hope with everything that I've got because there's no way that m... There's absolutely no way that my brother is dead... I'm not in denial.
(She turns and leaves the kitchen. Caroline and Stefan share a look)
(Caroline is on the front porch, talking on her cell phone)
Caroline: Hey. I know that I'm not supposed to be calling, but something happened, and I need to talk to you, Tyler. So please call me. [she hangs up]
Stefan: [joining her] Do you know where he is?
Caroline: As far away from Klaus as he can get. Klaus said he wouldn't stop until he found him.
Stefan: Well, Katherine's been running from Klaus for 500 years. It's not easy, but it's possible. It's probably why she stole the cure. She wants to bargain for her freedom.
Caroline: I just can't believe after all that, the cure is just gone.
Stefan: Yeah. I mean, talk about denial. In my head, I was thinking there was no way Elena was gonna stay a vampire forever... And now without any family.
Caroline: Well, we can't think about that right now. We need to make plans, lists. We need a funeral or a cover story, or a funeral and a cover story. I should go tell my mom. I guess she'll know what to do.
Stefan: We should get Matt over here.
Caroline: You're right. I will do that. I will call Matt, and then I will go tell my mom, and then I will make a list or a casserole or-- I don't know-- whatever people are supposed to do or make in these situations... What's that smell?
(Stefan looks inside through the open front door. Caroline looks like she already knows the answer)
Stefan: It's his body. He's starting to decompose. Tell your mom to get Dr. Fell over here.
--Stand By Me

Stefan: Everything all right?
Elena: (calmly) Yeah, as soon as the queen backs off, everything will be fine.
(Elena walks off to warm up with the other Mystic Falls cheerleaders while Caroline and Stefan watch her carefully.)
Caroline: Remember how Damon sired her to behave? It didn't really work.
(Elena smiles impishly, shrugging her shoulders slightly. Later, it's dark outside and Caroline walks in through the open door and joins Stefan.)
Caroline: I got here as soon as I could. This is insane.
Stefan: Yeah. It won't last. They'll either drink all the booze and get bored, or, ah, Damon'll come home and kill everyone.
(They start to join the fray of partiers.)
Caroline: We can't compel them to leave. The locals are all on vervain from the town water supply.
Stefan: Yep.
Caroline: So what do we do?
Stefan: Pff, I don't know. Enjoy the party, keep Elena from butchering Grove Hills' cheerleading squad. (He takes a swig from a bottle of alcohol.)
Caroline: Great. And where is she?
Stefan: (pointing and smiling) Where do you think?
(Caroline follows his gaze to see Elena dancing on a table, bottle in hand and laughing.)
Caroline: I almost forgot what that looked like.
Stefan: What? Elena smiling?
Caroline: (smiling) No. Fun. I mean, look at her. Yes, this is all very bad, but doesn't she make you just want to let go?
Stefan: (ruefully) Well, unfortunately I have this little problem... When I, uh, party too hard, I end up killing people.
Caroline: Well, your sober coach is giving you the green light... I mean, come on. You are at a kegger full of hot girls, and you're single, and you're, well, you're you.
Stefan: (smiling) So, what am I supposed to do, just grab some girl, throw her over my shoulder, take her out onto the dance floor?
Caroline: Just take your own advice. Have fun, you know? We deserve a little bit of fun.
Stefan: (nodding for a moment) Okay.
(He leans down and hauls Caroline up and over his shoulder.)
Caroline: (laughing) I didn't mean me!
(Stefan continues walking into the crowd of partiers with Caroline over his shoulder.)
(Caroline growls and starts to go for Elena but Stefan stops her.)
Stefan: Caroline, calm down.
Caroline: (struggling against Stefan) Calm down? I'm gonna wring her skinny little neck!
(Suddenly Elena vamp-speeds out of the house, leaving a cup spinning on the patio outside.)
(Caroline and Stefan are out in the woods looking for Elena.)
Caroline: Elena! Where the hell is she?
Stefan: Right where she wants to be. This is completely calculated. She drew all those people to the house, waited for an opportunity to distract us, and now she's free.
Caroline: I can't believe she's doing this. I mean, she hurt my mom, Stefan.
Stefan: All right, listen. You search the woods, I'll check the road. If you see her, don't hesitate. Just snap her neck, got it?
Caroline: Yeah.
Stefan: Okay.
(He turns and walks away; Caroline continues searching the woods.)
(Caroline's phone starts vibrating, and she pulls it away from her ear to look at it. A text message from Matt says, "Meet me at Tyler's house". She looks a little disappointed as Stefan enters the room.)
Stefan: You all right?
Caroline: You mean besides the fact that my best friend tried to kill me?
Stefan: (sitting on the sofa across from her) Look, it's not her. You have to remember that. With her emotions off, she's the worst version of herself.
Caroline: So how do we get her back? Or what if we can't? Why would she choose to turn her emotions back on? She's an orphan. She just lost her brother. Her life sucks, Stefan. So why would she come back to us?
Stefan: Even when I was at my worst, Elena didn't give up on me. So we can't give up on her.
(Caroline nods slightly. Stefan holds out his hand.)
Stefan: (with a small smile) Deal?
(Caroline smiles back a little, then reaches out and shakes his hand)
-- Bring It On

Stefan: Caroline, why don't you come dance with me, hm?
(Caroline takes his hand and they move to the dance floor, leaving Elena looking rather smug)
Caroline: I know you said to kill her with kindness, but can't I just kill her?
Stefan: I see you found a dress?
Caroline: It's from Klaus.
Stefan: Mm?
Caroline: Don't ask.
Stefan: You know you have him wrapped around your little finger, right?
Caroline: If I had Klaus wrapped around my finger, then I would be here with Tyler right now. Are you making any progress with the dress thief?
Stefan: I don't know. I think it's affecting me a lot more than it's affecting her.
Caroline: What do you mean?
Stefan: Every time I tell myself that I'm moving on, there's this part of me that just can't seem to shake her.
Caroline: That's normal, Stefan. You guys were in love, and that doesn't go away just because you declare that you're moving on.
Stefan: Well, then how does anyone ever seem to move on?
Caroline: I don't know. I think that someday, you'll meet someone new and you'll fall madly in love, and you'll have moved on without even realizing it.
-- Pictures of You

(Caroline storms into the house, talking to Stefan while she looks around for Elena)
Caroline: Where is she? I wanna see her.
Stefan: We're not letting anyone see her, that's the whole point. Isolation leads to misery leads to emotion.
Caroline: She's been here for days. She hasn't improved at all?
Stefan: Look, she doesn't want to, Caroline, not yet. She's devastated; she lost her brother, she... she attacked her friend, she killed an innocent woman.
Caroline: You said that you knew how to help her.
Stefan: I did say that. We are.
Caroline: What, how? By torturing her?
Stefan: It's not torture, it's an intervention. The only chance we have with her is to provoke her, to trigger something. Fear, anger, self-pity, anything.
Caroline: Let me talk to her. Before any more interventioning. If she's weak, she can't hurt me. Please, just let me try.
(Stefan still looks reluctant but they go down to the cellar)
Stefan: Good luck.
Caroline to Stefan: Good luck. Do whatever you have to do.
-- She's Come Undone

(Stefan enters the cafeteria carrying a flashlight. He finds Caroline there)
Stefan: Hey, there you are. Any luck?
Caroline: I searched the whole school. She should be here.
(The noise of something falling over breaks the silence and they both turn toward it)
Caroline: What was that?
(They walk over to the kitchens cautiously. Caroline approaches the freezer and opens it to reveal a bag of ice, which starts dripping onto the floor)
Stefan: Hm. Ice is melting.
(Caroline shuts the freezer door)
Caroline: Ugh. It just doesn't make any sense. This is the center of the triangle. If she's gonna do the spell, she has to do it here. This is where they should be.
Stefan: Actually, I think we're in the right place... (He shines his flashlight onto the floor, where the water from the melting ice is flowing down a drain) ...just the wrong elevation.
(Stefan walks into the Grill and sits at a table. Caroline enters the room and sits down across from him, setting down a bottle)
Caroline: Good, you're here. We need to celebrate.
Stefan: Yeah, I'm not really in the mood to, ah, celebrate.
Caroline: What's wrong with you? Silas is dead, or whatever, and you're just sitting here like a bump on a log.
Stefan: There was someone that I thought I would see today, and, ah... I didn't. That's all.
Lexi: You better mean me.
(Stefan and Caroline look at each other)
Stefan: You've got to be kidding me.
(He turns in his seat to see Lexi standing behind him. He smiles and stands to embrace her)
Lexi: (to Caroline) Thank you for keeping an eye on this one.
(Caroline smiles)
(Lexi links her arm with Stefan's. And talk about Caroline)
Lexi: Although I see I've been replaced by another blonde?
(She looks at Stefan suggestively)
Stefan: What are you giving me that look for?
Lexi: She's cute.
Stefan: Do not start.
-- The Walking Dead

Caroline: Aww! Group hug!
Stefan: Uh, I don't... I don't hug.
Caroline: Oh! Get over yourself.
-- Graduation

(Stefan is walking around among the people. He grabs a bottle of alcohol from a basket and keeps walking as he starts drinking.)
Caroline: Stefan?
Stefan: Caroline Forbes, my best friend.
Caroline: What, you recognize me?
Stefan: Well, I've studied pictures. You're much hotter in person. (He drinks some more.) Sorry. I'm... I'm a little drunk.
Caroline: Yeah. Yeah. I can see that. Are you ok?
Stefan: Well, if by ok you mean heavily spiraling into Ripper oblivion, then yes, I'm dandy.
Jesse: Keg-stand guy passed out, so I stole these. (He appears with two cups.)
Caroline: (to Jesse) Hey. Do you mind just giving us a couple minutes?
Stefan: Yeah. It's probably a good idea because I can sense from here that you have a paper cut on the palm of your left hand, and I want to rip your entire arm off.
Caroline: Stefan! (to Jesse, compelling) Go away, hide. I'll find you.
(Jesse leaves. Caroline turns around to face Stefan.)
Caroline: Look. I know that you're hungry, but you don't do people, ok? It just-- it doesn't end well.
Stefan: What about blood bags? Do you have any blood bags?
Caroline: Yes. In the car. Come with me.
(Caroline turns around and starts walking to her car but Stefan speed-runs out of there.)
(Stefan is furiously feeding on Jesse.)
Caroline: Hey! Stefan, stop!
(She pulls Stefan away from Jesse. Jesse lies on the floor.)
Caroline: This isn't you, ok? You might not remember, but I do. You are better than this. You are not this person.
Stefan: I have to go.
Caroline: What?
Stefan: I have to leave.
Caroline: Stefan.
(Stefan leaves. Caroline turns back to look at Jesse. He's bleeding profusely.)
Stefan to Damon and Elena: Don't worry. I'm not gonna go on a Ripper binge. Besides, Caroline said she'd call me every hour to make sure I was ok and, uh... I actually do trust her.
(In the next day Stefan is in the crypt. Caroline walks in.)
Caroline: Hey. How you feeling?
Stefan: Hmm. I'm feeling better, which in my world means I haven't committed a homicide since I last saw you. I've been doing a lot of thinking today, a lot of wandering around, and this seemed like the most appropriate place to come. (He looks at Caroline.) What's wrong?
Caroline: It's Bonnie. My friend, our friend. She's dead.
Stefan: Uh... What-- what happened?
Caroline: Please don't ask because then I'm going to have to try to come up with an answer, which means I'm gonna have to actually think about it, and then I'll start crying, and I'm afraid that I might not ever be able to stop.
Stefan: Hmm.
(Caroline sits on a stone bench. Stefan sits beside her.)
Stefan: I'm sorry. I... I wish that I could remember her.
Caroline: I don't know. Part of me just wishes that I could trade places with you because without all the memories, maybe it wouldn't hurt so damn much.
Stefan: It's ok.
Caroline: It's not. I'm never gonna see her again, and I have no idea where Tyler is, and I just got so used to them being there all the time, and now what? I'm supposed to just learn to move on without them? How do I do that when all I have is this sadness and this anger and...
Stefan: Me. You have me. Look. You were there for me last night. Sounds like you're always there for me. (He places his hand on hers.) So let me be there for you, ok?
-- For Whom the Bell Tolls

Caroline to Tyler about Stefan: He's James Dean. I went easy on him. I figured, between the blood lust drama, the Damon-Elena drama, the abuser drama, he's been through enough."
Stefan to Caroline: Hey, dance with me. I'm buzzed and I'm on the verge of having a good time."
-- Monster's Ball

(Stefan opens the door to find Caroline standing outside, smiling)
Stefan: What are you doin here??
Caroline: I'm your sober sponsor. And I heard that you needed help.
Stefan: Really?
Caroline: And I got my Mom to drop off something for us to use.
(She moves aside to reveal the Pierce and Franklin safe that Stefan was locked in. Stefan stares at it.)
Caroline: Don't worry. I sanitized it.
(Caroline and Stefan stand in front of the safe, which is already inside the house on the library's floor.)
Stefan: I spent 3 months drowning in this thing. What the hell were you thinking?
Caroline: I was thinking it's time for you to deal with the source of your PTSD.
Stefan: And you're sure you're not just sublimating your feelings about what happened to Jesse last night?
Caroline: (turning away from him) Feelings? What feelings would I have about my best friend killing the guy I was crushing on?
Stefan: He was out of control, and Elena did what she had to do.
Caroline: No. Elena did what she thought she had to do just like she also thought that Damon was good boyfriend material. Now you see where I'm going with this?
Stefan: Anyways, aren't you a drama major? What do you know about PTSD?
Caroline: Well, I know that you tried to deal with it your own way and you failed, so now... (she opens the safe) ...we're gonna try it my way.
(Stefan stares at the open safe and then at Caroline.)
(Stefan is locked inside the safe, looking around nervously.)
Stefan: Caroline! Do you even know what you're doing?
Caroline: (muffled) Yes. Well, it's in my textbook.
(Caroline is standing near the safe, flipping through the pages of a book.)
Caroline: Let me find it.
(Stefan is calming down now, but Katherine still has her hands on her face. She starts to draw closer to him, getting dangerously close to kissing Stefan. He doesn't pull away, but before anything could happen between them, Caroline unlocks the safe. Katherine quickly pulls apart from Stefan and looks away.)
Caroline: It was so quiet, I got worried.
(Stefan stands up to get out of the safe and offers his hand to help pull Katherine out. She takes it, but quickly withdraws it the moment she stands up and pushes her hair back nervously. Stefan walks over towards Caroline but is still staring at Katherine with a confused expression on his face. Finally looking back to a worried Caroline, he gives her reassuring smile.)
Caroline: (smiles brightly) See? (hits Stefan's shoulder playfully, then hugs him) You made it out alive!
-- The Cell

(Stefan is in the wine room, rummaging through his collection of alcohol and talking with Caroline on the phone)
Stefan: I need a favor. You know how Damon was trying to be all noble and broke up with Elena?
Caroline: Of course! There was champagne.
Stefan: Yeah.. well, I kind of convinced him that he was an idiot.
Caroline: You what?
Stefan: And now he's in a bit of a mood.. and something tells me he's been trying to get ahold of Elena and she hasn't been returning his phone calls.
Caroline: Look. I would love to help; If I thought he was actually good for her, but I don't...
Stefan: Caroline.. how would you like to be judged solely based on what you're attracted to?
Caroline: What? Do you know something?
Stefan: Why? Should I know something?
Caroline: (clearly unnerved that Stefan is on to her about Klaus) I just mean... are you sure this is really what you want? You know.. Elena and Damon.. or Damon and Elena.. I know there's a nickname in there somewhere.
Stefan: Listen.. I actually think that Elena is good for Damon. She makes him happy and we all know that when Damon is happy.....
Caroline: (finishing Stefan's train of thought) He's not out there killing people, which I guess is a plus for mankind.
Stefan: Exactly.
Caroline: but If I wanted to help, she's not here. I thought that she was with you.
Stefan: She told me she was staying at Whitmore.
Caroline: Okay.. that's weird.. um.. Well, where the hell is she?
(Damon and Stefan are enjoying a few drinks together while Stefan tries to convince Damon to give Katherine's body to her daughter and then Caroline arrives)
Caroline: Okay. So Bonnie took Jeremy to go visit her mom and neither of them have talked to Elena.
Damon: Who invited you? Scram.
Stefan: I invited her. Caroline agreed to help you get Elena back.
(Caroline talks to Damon but he refuses to accept their help)
Stefan to Caroline: Oh. I guess we better try Elena again.
(Caroline, still reeling over what happened with Tyler, sits in front of the fireplace at the Salvatore house)
Stefan: Hey. There you are. I've been looking all over for ya.
Caroline: Yeah. Well, I couldn't find a rock big enough to crawl under.. So.
Stefan: Hmm.
Caroline: You're my friend. I need you to just give it to me straight. Am I a horrible person?
Stefan: Hmm. So that's why you came here, huh? Alright. let me ask you something. When you found out about me and Katherine, what was your first thought?
Caroline: Honestly, I thought "eww."
Stefan: See and if you held that against me, you wouldn't be sitting here right now, with me, would you?
Caroline: Or maybe, I came here because I know that you see the best in people.
Stefan: Ahh. Somebody has to say it. So here goes.. Are you ready? Caroline, you are a horrible person.You are thoughtless. You are shameless. You are shallow and completely undependable.
Caroline: (laughing) Hey! I am vulnerable. Don't be mean!
Stefan: You know what? Now that I think of it.. I have no idea what Klaus saw in you. What was he thinking?
Caroline: (now laughing hysterically) Shut up.
-- The Devil Inside

(Stefan and Katherine are dancing and Caroline arrives)
Caroline: Hey!
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Do you mind if I borrow her for a minute? She promised me that she'd join me at the shredding station.
Stefan: Sure. Yeah, no. She's all yours.
Caroline: Thanks!
Katherine: Shredding station?
(Caroline and Katherine leaves)
(Elsewhere, Caroline spots Stefan standing by himself.)
Caroline: (approaching Stefan) Hey.
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Come on. You can be bitter with me.
Stefan: Oh. No. No. No. You are the second person that I didn't come here to dance with.
Caroline: Okay. Then what are you not telling Elena?
Stefan: Way to eavesdrop, Caroline.
Caroline: You came to a dance of your own free will. Something is up.
Stefan: Okay. Fine. Damon fell off the deep end.
Caroline: Uh. What do you mean exactly by 'deep end?'
Stefan: For starters, he killed Elena's friend, Aaron.
Caroline: He-- what?
Stefan: Yeah and I came here to tell her, but we were dancing.. she seemed so happy and I just couldn't...
Caroline: You think if you tell her what he did that she'll give up on him forever?
Stefan: Yeah. I know she will. And I don't think I can pull Damon back from that. I mean, I've seen Damon at his worst, Caroline, and I actually think he enjoys the way it makes him feel. It's like the more pain he can cause, the more reasons there are for people to hate him. He wants to confirm everyone's lowest expectations of him and I just honestly don't know how to fight that side of him.
(Damon has been listening in on Caroline and Stefan's conversation and interrupting them)
-- Total Eclipse of the Heart

(At the Salvatore house, Caroline arrives and Stefan opens the door)
Caroline: You were right. He's off the rails. This is from my mom.
(Caroline hands Stefan some papers)
Stefan: Let me guess: missing persons and animal attacks?
Caroline: Check and check, but there's something else. All of the victims were found inside their homes without their head... and their skin was desiccated.
Stefan: Damon's feeding on vampires...
(Stefan flips open the folder and looks at some of the crime scene images)
Stefan: I shouldn't have let him go.
Caroline: No. Uh uh. No, You are not turning Damon's roosting chickens into a Stefan Salvatore guilt trip. No one could've stopped him from going after Wes the other night.
Stefan: I guess Wes must have injected him with whatever he was going to give Elena that makes vampires feed on vampires.
Caroline: Ah. Good news, bad news. Bad news is that when this happened to Jesse, we had to kill him, but the good news is... I'm sorry, usually there's some good news.
Stefan: I have to find him.
(Katherine arrives talking with Caroline, Caroline's phone rings, She answers and is Tyler after talking, she says that she will go to his home and she hang up the phone. When Katherine leaves them alone)
Stefan: The bad news is that Tyler hates you. The good news is..... hmmm
Caroline: (breaking into a smile) It'll be fine.. We both have weird ex-friend situations.
Stefan: We... there's nothing weird going on between me Elena and me.
Caroline: Come on, Stefan! First, she tells you she's going to fight to get Damon back and then she re-breaks up with him and now she's here, with you, her ex "studying."
Stefan: She's here with her friend studying without the implied quotes.
Caroline: Well, look, I'm just saying that Elena and Damon's break-up is messy and you are not messy. You're stable and sane and...
Stefan: I'm about to spend 12 hours in a car with her alone, so whatever she's feeling, I'm sure I'll be able to figure it out.
(At the Salvatores house, Caroline is standing in front of the fireplace)
Stefan: Hey. When'd you get here?
Caroline: Ahh.. About one and half of these ago.
(She shakes her glass a little bit, causing the ice cubes to jingle)
Stefan: Hmm...
Caroline: You were right. I brought this on myself. I knew the Klaus thing was gonna come with consequences. Guess now I just have to deal with it and learn from my mistakes.
Stefan: Glad I could help. So, did you find Matt?
Caroline: Yes, and Tyler was right. Nadia's been compelling him to forget things.
Stefan: What do you mean? What kind of things?
Caroline: Who knows? He tried to message me, but Nadia stopped him.
(Caroline shows Stefan Matt's text message)
Caroline: "Help. K" was all I got.
Stefan: Huh.
(She takes the phone back)
Caroline: So... You and Elena. What's the verdict?
Stefan: Um, well, the verdict is... she's acting strange. She kissed me.
Caroline: Excuse me?
Stefan: Yeah. My car broke down, so we got a hotel room so she could shower and...
Caroline: Woah, woah, woah, woah. You guys got a hotel room? With a shower?
Stefan: Yeah, but it wasn't like that.. I mean, I stopped it, obviously. I couldn't do it to Damon.
Caroline: Yeah, but she could?! I just.. I don't get it. She knows that this would destroy him, what does... what is she doing?
Stefan: That's what I mean, it's like she's given up on Damon; and he thinks that she was trying to get me to kill him tonight.
Caroline: No. I mean, she may be mad at him, but she would never want him dead.
Stefan: Unless... Matt texted you "help. K" before Nadia stopped him. "K", as in Katherine. And when Katherine was dying, Nadia figured out a way to put Katherine's spirit inside Nadia's body.
Caroline: Yeah, but that didn't happen because Katherine had a change of heart. No... No. You don't think that... It's impossible that she'd be... We would have noticed! It's Elena. We know her... Oh my God...
-- No Exit

Caroline to Stefan: Of course. The farther she gets, the worse our chances of ever seeing Elena again. It's bad enough that we didn't recognize Katherine, we also blew our only advantage.
-- Gone Girl

(Stefan picks up the phone and says "Hello")
Elena: Please tell me that's some good news.
Caroline: (over the phone, still in Wes' lab with Enzo) Bad news... It's not the same virus.
Stefan: What is it?
Caroline: Dr. Creepenstein was working on the next phase of the virus. When Nadia was sick, he was experimenting on her blood and he figured out a way to extract werewolf venom from her blood and put it in the virus.
Stefan: Wait.. what do you mean "werewolf venom?" That means it's fatal.
Elena: Oh my god..
Caroline: Hello! You don't think I would just drop this on you without a silver lining! There's an antidote. It just requires you to come meet me. I'll text you the address.
Stefan: Or you could just bring it over here.
Caroline: No. You have to go there. And don't ask me why, because I can't tell you.
Stefan: Caroline.. this doesn't make any sense.. Just tell me exactly..
Caroline: If I could tell you, don't you think I'd be there right now to help Elena? I'll text you the address!
Stefan: I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what is going on.
Caroline: The travelers don't want anyone to know what they're up to, and by "anyone," I mean "newbie, emo, witch" types, with bad attitudes. Just get there fast, okay?
(Caroline and Stefan hang up the phone)
(Stefan finally meets Caroline. They arrive at some abandoned train station)
Stefan: He'll tell her.
Caroline: When?
Stefan: "Hey Elena, I killed Aaron." It's not exactly casual conversation.
Caroline: Killing someone in cold blood isn't casual, but Damon managed that just fine.
(Enzo arrives)
Enzo: Or I can just tell her.. considering I was lying in the road when he stopped his car.
Stefan: So.. what's in this for you, aside from getting Damon to undo every positive decision he's ever made.
Enzo: Is it such an anomaly for Damon to have a friend? Well, if so, consider me honored.
Caroline: Okay. We're here. Where is the antidote?
(Enzo nods and a group of travelers disperse through the stockyard. One particular woman walks right over to Caroline and Stefan)
(Caroline and Stefan are talking privately as they walk to a separate section, where Sloan and the other travelers are)
Caroline: Look, I know there's a lot of them, but between you, me and Enzo, I bet we can take them.
Stefan: Did you really just say that?
Caroline: Ugh. Sorry. I'm desperate.
Stefan: It'll be fine.
Caroline: Yeah, until you lose your memory again.
Stefan: Well, if I lose my memory, then I won't remember I had anything to worry about in the first place. See? Win/win.
(Caroline gives him 'the look')
Caroline: Who volunteers themselves for witchy electric shock therapy?
Stefan: Me... and I would do it for you too. Look.. let's just say that they do fry my brain.
Caroline: I'll kill them..
Stefan: Right. And then you'll spiral out of control about killing them and then, do me a favor, remind me we were friends.
(The finally greet The Travelers)
(After Caroline reached a compromise with the travelers, she goes to make sure Stefan is okay)
Caroline: Hey.
(Stefan looks confused)
Stefan: (jokingly) Rebekah?
Caroline: Oh my god...
Stefan: kidding! Lexi, right?
Caroline: It was funnier the first time
Stefan: Did it work?
Enzo: The engine's running blondie. I appreciate the call. Let's go do this thing.
Stefan: Did I miss something?
Caroline: Sloan was going to fry your brain to kill your.. other you. I wasn't about to let that happen, so.. I may have volunteered to help Enzo deal with it.
Stefan: You mean... kill him?
(They both look to one another, not saying a word)
Stefan: Caroline.. I can't let you
Caroline: They only want one alive, remember? It's you or him.
Stefan: Alright well. I'm coming with you.
Enzo: No mate. You aren't. They need to use you to get *unknown*. Tick tock, gorgeous. Time is of the essence.
Caroline: I'll be fine, Stefan. Besides, you'd do the same for me, right?
Stefan: I don't trust him..
Caroline: Don't worry. I don't either. I'll be safe, I promise
-- While You Were Sleeping

(At The Travelers camp, Stefan finally regains consciousness after having his mind messed with by Sloan and the other travelers, he gets a call from Caroline, Sloan answers and Caroline ask for Stefan, Sloan does as she asked and gives the phone to Stefan)
Caroline: What happened? Tom's been missing from the hospital for months. Is there any other things that you noticed in your visions -- any small details that could maybe help us out?
Stefan: No. No. I can't remember anything after the spell happened, it's like I blacked out.
Sloan: The link connects us to the doppelgänger mind. If we're seeing old memories, that means we have to go deeper.
Caroline: No. No No. If he's blacking out it means the link is destroying his memories.
(Despite Caroline's concerns, Sloan goes back into Stefan's head to get more information)
Caroline: (hearing Stefan in agony) Stefan?! Stefan! Are you still with me?
(Through the link, they see a memory Tom has about a girl in the hospital parking lot)
Caroline: Hey, Listen to my voice. Can you hear me? I'm right here, okay? Just hold on.
(Caroline continues to keep Stefan calm as the link persists. He has visions about Tom)
Caroline: Can you hear me? Just say something, please!
Stefan: Caroline, I'm here.
Caroline: (obviously relieved) Okay
Stefan: 6643 Peachtree Drive. here was, uh, a redheaded woman. Her name was Hazel
Caroline: Thank you. I won't let you down.
Stefan: Caroline, he's a good person. Don't do it.
Sloan: The clock is ticking.
(Caroline finally arrives back at the traveler's camp. She finds Stefan alone in the back of a car on-site)
Caroline: Stefan? Hey.
Stefan: Hey.
(Caroline lays down with Stefan)
Stefan: Are you...
Caroline: A big fat failure? Yep. But on the bright side, I'm also exhausted and very cranky.
Stefan: It's good to see you anyway. So, do you want to tell me what happened?
Caroline: I just did. I failed. I couldn't kill him, Stefan. Not even to save you.
Stefan: You do realize you're feeling guilty for not being able to kill someone.
Caroline: No, I'm feeling guilty because you're still being held prisoner.
Stefan: Come on, Caroline. They were never going to let me out. I'm too important to them.
Caroline: Well, you're even more important now. Enzo killed Tom.
Stefan: Yet another reason to kill Enzo, I guess.
Caroline: I should've seen it coming. That whole flirty "oh, I'm so charming because I want to distract you" thing. I-I practically invented that. What do we do now?
Stefan: We go to sleep
(Caroline laughs, part genuinely, part confused)
Caroline: That's heroic.
Stefan: Well, the hero part of my brain needs to recharge for, you know, being tortured all day while you were out flirting with yet another british man.
Caroline: Shut up! Ha ha. That's very funny.
(Caroline rolls over on her side and faces Stefan)
Stefan: We gather our strength and wait for an opportunity to get the hell out of here; together.
(Caroline closes her eyes for a second and opens them again)
Caroline: You knew? That's why you let me go, because you knew the whole time, didn't you?
Stefan: Knew what?
Caroline: That I couldn't do it.
Stefan: Not that you couldn't do it, but wouldn't do it.
Caroline: How?
Stefan: Because that's what makes you you.
(They lay there for a few more minutes until Caroline snuggles up to Stefan)
(Caroline and Stefan are sleeping. Stefan has his arm draped around her stomach and Caroline's hand is placed over his. They wake up when they hear the travelers chanting)
Caroline: What the hell is that?
(They get up to investigate. From their hiding spot, they see the travelers gathered around a fire, passing around a bowl full of blood)
Stefan: Those buckets.. They're drinking my blood and Elena's.
Caroline: Oh my god.
(Sloan sticks a torch in the flames and then sets one traveler on fire. Suddenly, they all go up in flames.)
Stefan: This is it. Here, take my hand.
(They speed off)
--Rescue Me

(Caroline's cell phone rings and she picks it up.)
Caroline: Stefan, hey.
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Is everything okay?
Stefan: Well, you know how sometimes you feel crazy and you call me, and I tell you that you're not crazy?
Caroline: Even though most of the time I am.
Stefan: Well, I need you to tell me that I'm not crazy.
Caroline: Uh, no promises.
Stefan: I was walking to my car, and I nearly got plowed over in the middle of the street because I was having some vision of Elena.
Caroline: I take that back. Actually, you're not crazy at all. Something's going on.
-- Resident Evil

(Elena and Stefan talk outside the cabin while unloading the car.Caroline comes outside.)
Caroline: Good news! So we don't have to be invited in, which is actually super sad if you think about it.
Stefan: Hmm.
Caroline: Am I interrupting something?
Elena: No, no. We're just, um--
Stefan: Unpacking. We're unpacking. Uh, here you go.
(Stefan hands Caroline a couple of bags to take inside. She's suspicious but laughs it off.)
Caroline: Ok. Heh.
(Caroline takes the bags inside.Caroline walks out onto the porch and observes them, eavesdropping, Caroline sees that Elena and Stefan are fiddling .)
Caroline: (raising her voice) For a couple of doppel-targets, you two seem to be taking this all in stride.
Stefan: Yeah. Well, you know, a tribe of ancient wannabe witches want to drain of us our blood and eliminate supernatural beings? I've had worse.
(Elena and Stefan carry supplies inside.)
(They are playing "never have I ever", after many drinks)
Caroline: Never have I ever kissed a Salvatore brother... Today.
(They all are in an awkward silence)
Caroline: So are you gonna drink or--
Elena: Are you implying something?
Stefan: Well, I'm gonna get another round. Does anybody--
Damon: Never have I ever lied about where Enzo is.
Caroline: Ok. What is going on?
Stefan: Nothing obviously because nobody's drinking.
(Damon and Stefan start arguing and Elena says that she is drunk and wants to go to sleep, she leaves.)
(Stefan and Bonnie are talking on the phone about the death of Enzo and Caroline hears the conversation, she walks to Stefan.))
Caroline: Enzo's dead?
(Stefan hangs up on Bonnie.)
Stefan: Yeah. I, uh, I killed him.
Caroline: So my powers of deduction really suck. Why didn't you say anything?
Stefan: Because it's complicated.
Damon: Enter the complication. Enzo's dead. You killed him. Elena told me.
Caroline: So you didn't know either?
Damon: Nope.
Caroline: And their secret really was about Enzo.
Damon: Yep.
Stefan: You guys think we could, um, talk about this some other time?
Damon: By all means, brother. At your convenience.
Stefan: Listen. The other side is falling apart, and I think it's allowing Enzo to mess with us.
Damon: Enzo! You in here?
Enzo: Don't reckon I'd miss this.
Damon: Because knock it off!
Caroline: It doesn't make any sense. If Enzo wanted to kill Elena, drowning her wouldn't have worked.
Enzo: Smart girl. See why you like her so much.
Caroline: Maybe he's just trying to scare us.
Enzo: Getting warmer. Come on! You've almost got it. What is Enzo up to?
Damon: Drowning Elena was just a distraction. He figured out a way to kill us all in one fell swoop.
Enzo: Did I mention that I missed you?
(Damon, Stefan and Caroline walk out onto the front porch.)
(Caroline watches the shed burn. Stefan joins her.)
Stefan: Never have I ever had a ghost try to burn me alive.
Caroline: Drink.
Stefan: Come on. Car's packed. We got to get out of here.
Caroline: We're friends, right? We tell each other things, we trust each other.
Stefan: Caroline, it's not because I didn't trust you.
Caroline: No. It's just that you trust Elena more, and I get it. Of course you would. Still sucks to be left out of the loop, you know?
Stefan: Well, if it makes you feel any better, there are things that I tell you that I don't tell her.
Caroline: Like what?
Stefan: Like you have dirt on your cheek.
(he cleans her cheek and they smiles.)
Stefan: And look. Maybe I didn't want you to know that I killed Enzo.
Caroline: Why?
Stefan: Because I know you, and I know you guys had that weird little chemistry thing going on.
Caroline: Oh, please! You're delusional.
Stefan: I didn't want you to think any less of me. I'll, uh--I'll meet you over by the car when you're done.
(Stefan leaves Caroline to watch the shed burn.
-- What Lies Beneath

(Caroline and Stefan are still waiting on Bonnie near their car)
Caroline: Where's Bonnie? She was right behind me!
Stefan: I didn't want you to think any less of me. I'll, uh--I'll meet you over by the car I'm going to find out what's taking so long.
-- Promised Land

(She almost falls to the ground, but from the other side, Stefan stops her fall, which forces him back over to the living plane)
Stefan: No. No. No.
Caroline: Stefan!
Stefan: I was just trying...
Caroline: What's wrong?
Stefan: She fell.. I was just trying..
Caroline: What?
Stefan: Damon.. he's not there yet.
Elena: (with tears welling up in her eyes) This is not happening.
Bonnie: It's okay. I can do this.
(Stefan is sitting on a picnic table all alone, until Caroline comes to talk to him)
Stefan: I lost them both.. Two people I've known longest in this world.. both gone.
Caroline: Lexi?
Stefan: She never came out. Neither did Markos. I know that's not a coincidence. It was, uh, her, unfinished business. and Damon.. uh.. he finally had everything he wanted. He was happy.. He should be here.
(Stefan puts his head in between his legs and starts to cry. Caroline wraps her arms around him without saying a word)
-- Home

(Caroline calls Stefan but he doesn't respond)
Stefan: (voice recording) It's Stefan. Leave a message.
Caroline: Hey. It's me. Just leaving another message about how today was not a good day. Everyone drifted apart.
(The scene turns to Stefan staring at phone and drinking beer. )
Caroline: It's like everyone's pretending they can get through this alone. Elena's gone and I think she's so scared to accept what happened that she's become a completely different person... And if you ask me, Tyler's just hiding at Whitmore, pretending everything's fine as if he can outrun his werewolf gene or something. And Matt and Jeremy never leave Mystic Falls anymore. There's an invisible wall standing between us and them and nobody's doing anything about it.Part of me wonders if they hope we never find a way back in. And then there's me, just sitting in a diner on the border of town looking for a way to get our home back.We just lost two of our closest friends.We need each other. We need to be together, Stefan, or pretty soon we're just gonna end up pictures in a yearbook in a drawer somewhere, and so, that is why I am not going to stop calling you until you pick up the phone and I hear your voice and you tell me that you are going to help me fix it. Because I am not going to give up on us.
(Stefan still siting at the desk and the message from Caroline comes. He takes the phone and crashes it with the finger.)
-- I'll Remember

(Ivy, Stefan, Caroline and Enzo are seated at the table, Enzo is staring Stefan down, they all are talking about Stefan new life.)
Ivy: So, how do you guys know Stefan?
Caroline: He and I went to high school together. He used to date my best friend. (She cuts a glance at Stefan.)
(Caroline, Ivy and Stefan exchange awkward glances.)
Caroline: Not that he's not allowed to date, I mean they broke up. I just didn't realize that he had met someone. So how did you meet exactly?
Stefan: Uh, Ivy's car was in the shop, where I work.
Caroline: You work at an Auto-Repair shop?
Stefan: (smacks his lips) It's relaxing.
Ivy: Why? What did you used to do?
Enzo: Ah, man of all seasons, jack of all trades.
(Still in the dinner.)
Enzo: So, Stefan, tell us, this house, very charming. When'd you get it?
(Stefan is pouring wine into a glass cup.)
Stefan: About a month or so ago.
Ivy: No, more than that, remember? We met two months ago and you already had it.
Caroline: You've--lived here for more than TWO months?
Stefan: Yeah, I guess I have.
Caroline: Well, I guess that's just weird because, you know; everyone thought you were living somewhere else.
(Stefan sits.)
Caroline: And you're job was supposed to be investigative work not Auto-Repair.
Stefan: Right. Well, I've moved on from that job.
Caroline: Well, you can't move on from investigative work until you've solved the investigation, Stefan.
Stefan: How 'bout we just drop it? I'm happy doing what I'm doing now, and that's all that should really matter, right?
(Caroline leans forward to protest but Enzo stops her.)
(Stefan is back in the kitchen/diningroom, he's picking up a chair. The room is completely trashed and Enzo is still temporarily-dead, slumped by the counter, Caroline is standing my the door.)
Stefan: You should probably get him out of here. He'll be up soon and I really don't feel like another go-around.
Caroline: I'm sorry that you heard what I said.
Stefan: It's fine, Caroline. I really don't care.
Caroline: Why? Why don't you care? You're the one who always cared, it's what I liked about you. You know amidst all the crazy in our perfectly-messed-up lives, you cared more than anyone. So how could you just--stop?
Stefan: Cause I had to. I had to 'move on'. You know, the months before I moved here I was following every lead that Alaric sent my way. I spoke to every witch, every shaman, every psychic in 20 countries around the globe, and every lead was a dead end.
Caroline: But Enzo has another lead, there's this coven in Oregon--
Stefan: The Gemini Coven, yeah I looked into them too, Caroline there was nothing there. Because there's nothing we can do, Damon and Bonnie are DEAD. I had to come to terms with that. And once I did, I had to start over, I couldn't just live my life with my old friends, I couldn't just go near Mystic Falls or Elena or--
Caroline: Or me? (They look at each other, Stefan looks away guiltily.) Cause I thought we were closer than that, I mean--you could hear in all those messages that I left you, you couldn't hear that I was completely falling apart without you? (She stares at him for his response but Stefan is still looking down, guiltily, her face straightens in realization, she looks away from his face.) Cause you never listened to them.
Stefan: I had to move on I didn't have a choice. (Caroline looks extremely sad, and appalled, her eyes are filling with tears.) I had to erase everything.
(Caroline sighs, looking more angry than sad now.): Well, let me summarize them for you. You're a dick, if you want him out of your house, you'll throw him out yourself.)
(She storms out.)
-- Yellow Ledbetter

(Caroline sends Enzo to get ice and when Enzo is coming back, he is attacked by Stefan, when Stefan is about to shoot, Caroline appears and comes between them)
Caroline: Stefan.
Enzo: Good news, Caroline, I thwarted a vampire hunter. Bad news... Stefan has become a vampire hunter.
Caroline: What are you doing?
Stefan: Why don't you ask him?
(Stefan resist and leaves, Caroline turns to Enzo)
Caroline: What did you do?
(Enzo remains in silent)
(In the woods, elsewhere, Caroline calls Stefan when she sees him but Stefan tries to avoid her. She superspeeds in front of him.)
Caroline: Stop, ok? I am sorry. I did not know about Ivy, but...
Stefan: But what? What? I was fooling myself, I was using her as an escape? Yeah, I know what you think, Caroline.
Caroline: Well, actually, I was gonna say, "but killing Enzo won't bring her back."
Stefan: No, but it will stop him from reminding me of my brother. I kill him, I can leave this place, and I can start over again.
Caroline: So that's why you left all those messages on my phone, promising apologies. That's why you visited Elena, that's why you came to this party, just to kill Enzo and start over?
Stefan: Yep.
Caroline: I don't believe you. I know that a part of you misses this place and these people, your friends. I know that being back here reminds you how much we need you, how much... I need you, but if I'm wrong, then go ahead. Just go. Start over, but, God, if I'm right, if just a little part of you came back to check on Elena, who's had an unbearable 4 months, or Alaric, who just came back from the dead, or me... If even just a small, little part of you came back to check on me... Then stay.
(Stefan waits for a moment but then leaves suddenly. Caroline starts crying. She sees Elena who has been observing everything from nearby and both look at each other sadly. Elena comes ahead and hugs Caroline as she continues to cry.)
-- Welcome to Paradise

(Stefan knocks on Caroline's door, she's alone, in a towel, she opens it for him.)
Caroline: Stefan? Where have you--?
(He pushes past her, carrying a black trunk)
Stefan: I need a favor. (He drops it on the floor.)
(Caroline closes the door and holds her towel up.)
Caroline: What are you doing? And what is with this trunk?
(She leans down to open it while Stefan closes the curtains.)
Stefan: Hang on.
(Caroline is still leaning down when Ivy popped out of the chest, Caroline shrieks.)
Caroline: Oh, my god!
Ivy: Where am I? (Looking at Stefan.) What did you do?
(Stefan makes a face.)
Caroline: Ivy, how did this happen?
Stefan: Uh, Enzo turned her.
(Caroline leans her head to the side.)
Ivy: Then Stefan broke my neck and I woke up in a trunk.
Stefan: Right. So, I need a little bit of help.
Caroline: No, (she looks at Ivy.) No, no, no.
Stefan: Just watch her for a little while, while I get Luke to make her a daylight ring.
(Ivy stands and leaves the trunk.)
Stefan: Show her the ropes, teach her some control.
Caroline: No, no. This is not my mess. (She points at him.) This is your mess.
Stefan: A mess that wouldn't have happened if you had just left me alone.
Ivy: Um, I can hear you, you know? I can hear everything, like, perfectly.
Caroline: Do I need to remind you that there is a vampire hunter lurking around?
Stefan: He's not here. He's in Savannah, which is why we're not.
Ivy: (plopping on Caroline's bed) You know the real tragedy in all this? I read "he's just not that into you," and--
Stefan and Caroline: Shut up!
Stefan: Look, Tripp Cooke has somehow decided to become the eastern seaboard's self-proclaimed vampire hunter. None of us are safe, if we can't control ourselves. If anybody can teach her, it's you.
Caroline: Yeah? Well, you don't have to flatter me because I already know that.
Stefan: All right? So just a couple of hours, and then you'll never have to deal with me again.
Caroline: Is that what you think I want?
Stefan: I don't know, you tell me.
(they're standing there exchanging glances.)
Caroline: Okay.
(Stefan leaves Caroline and Ivy in the dorm room.)
(The sky is dark, Caroline is outside, walking down a street with a phone to her ear.)
Caroline: Stefan, hey. This is the third message alerting you that your psychotic little she-vamp has gone AWOL, and if you hadn't noticed, it's dark outside, so every dead sorority girl tonight is officially on you.
(Caroline is walking down the street, and she finds a car covered in blood. Caroline sighs. A light shines on her and she turns, Stefan's red car just parked onto the sidewalk and Stefan steps out.)
Caroline: THANK GOD!
Stefan: You lost her?
Caroline: Oh, so you decide to listen to your messages a million hours later? No, I didn't lose her, she snapped my neck. What the hell took you so long?
Stefan: I got caught up.
Caroline: You got caught up doing what?
Stefan: Driving halfway out of town.
Caroline: You were leaving?
Stefan: I slid Ivy's daylight right under--
Caroline: No.
Stefan:--your front door--
Caroline: No, I don't care about some stupid ring, Stefan! Were you seriously about to dump your vampire ex-girlfriend onto my lap, and then just skip town?
(Stefan slightly nods. Caroline's mouth widens, she's appalled, angry and shocked.)
Caroline: God, who are you right now?!
Stefan: I'm someone who's trying to start over, and then suddenly you and Enzo show up and now I have hunters on my trail and a brand new vampire who wants to kill me and everyone else in her path! And that's not how someone starts over, Caroline!
Caroline: You know what the worst part about all of this is? Is about a month ago, I wished that Damon would come back. Because I knew if that happened, that I'd get you back too. But right now, all I want is for you to just get back in your car, and go.
(Stefan looks hurt as he walks away from her, leaving Caroline who shuts her eyes and licks her lips as she hears Stefan's car drive away.)
-- The World Has Turned and Left Me Here

(Stefan and Caroline walk through the woods toward Tripp's Cabin; arguing, Caroline is angry with Stefan.)
Stefan: look Enzo wasn't being careful Tripp would've caught him eventually and that meant danger for all of us.
Caroline: right so you handed Enzo over so we wouldn't be targeted and now you're rescuing him so we won't be targeted. Way to go. (She says sarcastically)
Stefan: well, I thought Tripp was gonna kill him. I didnt think he was going to keep him alive for information.
Caroline: Oh, Well, in that case, sounds like you were just being practical. So did you rat out Ivy, too?
Stefan: what?
Caroline: well, you didn't want to deal with her anymore, you wanted her gone, and now she is. You know what you really should write Tripp a thank-you note.
Stefan: hold on a second Enzo turns Ivy right, a hunter kills her and yet I'm the bad guy? I'm not the one threatening to turn in other vampires to save his own skin.
Caroline: the only one who turned in other vampires is you Stefan. That's why you're helping. Guilt for getting Damon's friend captured.
Stefan: Yeah. Damon is my brother and I gave up on him first. Enzo didn't so if rescuing his idiot friend is gonna somehow make it up to him that's exactly what I'm gonna do.
Caroline: great. Good for you. Let me know when you figure out how you're gonna make everything up to me.
(They arrive at Tripp's Cabin, Stefan's eyes widen as the door opens; he grabs Caroline and vamp speeds out of sight; hiding behind a crate in the yard,Two men come out of the cabin looking around suspiciously, they lock the door and leave. Stefan and Caroline share a brief look between one another.)
Caroline: let's get in there.
(they get inside the cabin only to find it empty)
Caroline: well, where the hell is he?
(Stefan sighs and sits along at the table until he spots Caroline walks down the street. He quickly leaves the restaurant to catch up to her).
Stefan: hey
Caroline: (turning toward him) hey, so am I your last stop on the Stefan Salvatore apology tour?
Stefan: could we just get past this, please?
Caroline: I'm trying to.
Stefan: Look, Caroline. What do you want me to do huh? Stop making me guess and tell me so we can go back to being friends again.
Caroline: yeah well you know that's the thing Stefan after all of this, I--I don't want to be friends anymore.
(She walks away, leaving him alone on the street; he sighs and shoves his hands in his pockets)
-- The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get

(Caroline is looking a picture of her, Stefan and Elena, Stefan knocks on the doorframe; Caroline looks back at him, then away)
Caroline: That's weird.
Stefan: What's weird?
Caroline: None of your business. We're not friends anymore, which means you can't just show up unannounced at my door. Good-bye.
(Caroline goes to shut the door in his face, but Stefan edges in before)
Stefan: Hey, Caroline. Look. You're not safe. Tripp's men still have your name.
Caroline: So, what? You here to protect me? News flash! I don't need your protection, and more importantly, I don't want it.
(Caroline's phone rings and she answers it, is her mother)
(Caroline is in the passenger seat while Stefan drives)
Caroline: Answer your phone, Enzo! I just... I didn't call her today, you know? I always call my mom every Saturday morning, but, no, today, I said, "screw it. I want to sleep in. I'll do it tomorrow."
Stefan: Well, don't worry. We're almost there.
Caroline: We're almost there? You said, two hours and then kill him." Do you even remember how long ago you said that? I mean, what kind of person sets a ticking clock without setting his watch?
(Caroline's phone rings and she answers it)
(On the small abandoned storehouse, Enzo opens the door and Caroline and Stefan enter)
Enzo: Hello, gorgeous.
Caroline: What did you do to him?
Enzo: Oh, he's fine. Just a little blood loss. I think he may have an iron deficiency problem.
Stefan: Knock it off. Her mother's life is on the line.
Enzo: Hang on. Just so I'm clear. All Caroline had to do to get you to treat her with a modicum of respect, is to stop paying attention to you. Is that how this works?
Caroline: Shut up, Enzo. And did he really need 3 chains? I mean, who is this guy, the Hulk?
Stefan: Well, I didn't restrain him.
Caroline: No, but you let your sidekick Enzo do it because what could go wrong when you team up with your sworn enemy?
Enzo: Oh. That's brilliant. Of course that's why she hates you. That's how you worked her into such a state in Savannah. That's why she told you to go take a leap. She hates you because she doesn't hate you at all.
Stefan: I'm sorry. Are you still talking?
Enzo: She got a thing for you, mate. (to Caroline) Tell your mum I send my best.
(Enzo leaves; Caroline and Stefan share an awkward silence)
Caroline: Whatever he just said, it will never be discussed again, ok?
Stefan: Mm-hmm.
(On the hospital, Caroline and Stefan step out into the hall; Stefan closes the door behind him)
Caroline: Please don't ask my mother for her opinions.
Stefan: You heard that?
Caroline: Yeah. I've got superhearing. I hear everything.
Stefan: Only when you listen.
(Caroline glares at him then looks away, Stefan sighs)
Stefan: Why?
Caroline: Why was I listening?
Stefan: Why do you have a... Thing for me?
Caroline: I don't.
Stefan: Okay, uh, why did you have a thing for me?
Caroline: We said that we would never talk about this again so just...
Stefan: Look Caroline, please, just talk to me. Tell me how, tell my why. Please just make me understand how it is that I missed it.
Caroline: What kind of a stupid question is that? Why did have a thing for you? I don't know Stefan, maybe it's because I thought you were worth having a thing for. Because when I woke up a-a vampire, you told me that I would get through it and I did. Because when I watched Elena go for your brother, I could imagine why she would let anyone like you go. Because you were practically my best friend because I trusted you.
Stefan: I'm sorry. I'm sorry for not seeing it, I'm sorry for not -
Caroline: Feeling it back?
Stefan: No, I didn't say that I uh. I don't know what I felt, you know my head was all over the place. But, but I am incredibly sorry for the way that I treated you.
Caroline: Yeah well, I know what you felt Stefan. Because if even just a little tiny piece of you felt for me the way I was starting to feel for you, you wouldn't have walked away. And I don't hate you for that, I don't hate you for mourning your brother, I don't hate you for being the biggest jerk on the planet while doing so... And I accept your apology.
Stefan: But you do still, hate me.
Caroline: Yes. Yeah, I hate you. Because if I don't hate you for ruining our friendship, that I have to hate myself for ruining it. And I think I deserve better than that.
(Caroline walks away, leaving Stefan behind)
-- Do You Remember the First Time?

(On the college,Caroline walks out into the hallway and notices Stefan)
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Hey. You're here. That's good. That actually saves me a trip. Needless to say, there were leftovers.
(She hands him a box)
Stefan: You made me a doggie bag.
Caroline: (laughing) Just because I hate you doesn't mean I want you to starve to death. Besides, Bonnie's alive. You know, this is, like, the first Thanksgiving in forever where there's something to actually be thankful for, so...
Stefan: Caroline, um, look. When Damon was gone, I, um... I pushed you away.
Caroline: Yeah, I know, Stefan. You pushed everyone away. It's kind of what you do.
Stefan: But I pushed you away the most. I knew that you were the one person who would sit with me and let me cry, and I didn't want to cry anymore, so I had to push you away the most.
Caroline: Thank you for saying that.
(Caroline starts to smile; Stefan shifts awkwardly as they wait for each other to say something)
Stefan: Listen—
Caroline: Enjoy the leftovers.
(Caroline leaves, still smiling; Stefan stays behind, but turns in the direction she left, still slightly emotional after his confession)
-- Fade Into You

(At Whitmore College, Caroline and Liz are preparing for Christmas, Stefan arrives with two boxes of Christmas lights)
Stefan: Hey. I, uh, didn't know which ones to get, so I got both.
Caroline: What are you doing here?
Stefan: Your mom needed Christmas lights.
(Caroline turns her ire on her mom)
Liz: You have a huge dorm, and I thought we could use an extra set of hands.
(Caroline glares at her mom, who glares right back. Caroline turns back to Stefan, who holds up both boxes)
Caroline: The little ones, obviously.
(Caroline is hanging the lights up and Stefan joins her to help)
Stefan: Here. I got it.
Caroline: What are you doing here?
Stefan: Well, your mom asked for my help.
Caroline: No, Stefan. What are you doing here? Because if you think hanging a few stands of light is gonna make me forget what a crappy friend you've been, then you thought wrong.
Stefan: Caroline, I'm trying, ok?
Caroline: You're trying? No. This is the easy part, ok? We're hanging Christmas lights. Anyone can be friends when you're hanging Christmas lights.
(Liz returns carrying a tray with cups)
Liz: Who wants hot chocolate?
Stefan: I was just leaving.
(Stefan leaves.)
(On the hospital, Caroline and Stefan talk)
Caroline: That just doesn't make sense. My mom would have said something to me.
Stefan: We were worried, so... Elena compelled one of the doctors for information.
Caroline: Ok. So my mom has a brain tumor. Then we'll just give her vampire blood.
Stefan: Caroline, do you think that if our blood cured cancer we would have heard about that by now?
Caroline: Fine. Then when are they gonna operate?
Stefan: That's the problem. They can't.
Caroline: Ok. Well, if they can't operate, then they'll give her chemo, right?
Stefan: The tumor is growing so fast the doctors don't think that will work.
Caroline: Well, then they're wrong because they don't know her. They don't know how strong she is. I mean, she's gonna get through this, Stefan. Right?
(Caroline breaks down, and Stefan holds her. Elena hangs up the phone as she walks into the hall, and sees Caroline crying in Stefan's arms)
-- Christmas Through Your Eyes

(Caroline enters her living room, holding a flower)
Caroline: You kept my orchid alive. That's amazing.
Liz: I wanted everything to be just the same when you finally came home.
(Stefan enters the house)
Stefan: Hey.
Liz: What is this?
Caroline: Uhm, Stefan volunteered to move your entertainment center in here, so now you can watch TV from your favorite chair.
Stefan: Yeah, I hooked up the surround sound to your DVD player and I left a universal remote on the table, right there.
Liz: Well, thanks. Guess it never occurred to anybody to just...move my chair, but... (Stefan is watching Liz worriedly; Liz smirks) What's the matter? Never seen anyone with Stage 4 cancer before?
Stefan: Actually, no, I haven't. One of the few perks of starting over ever few decades, real life never really catches up to you.
(Caroline comes back downstairs holding a Friends boxset; she hands it to Liz)
Caroline: So if you start the Friends boxset now, I'll be back in time for Monica and Chandler's wedding. Stefan, you know how to laugh, right?
Stefan: Opinions vary. Wait, why? Are you leaving?
Caroline: Every minute counts, so I'm going to go get a second opinion from one of the world's leading experts in Grade 4 Glioblastoma. (Liz gives Caroline a look) I couldn't sleep; I Googled.
Liz: And where is the internet sending you?
Caroline: Duke.
Stefan: Duke? You know what, maybe I'll give you a ride. I was thinking of heading that way to check on a friend.
Caroline: A friend?
Stefan: Mmmhm.
Caroline: Stefan, I know all of your friends. Elena. Me. (pretends to think) And then that's it.
Liz: I think it would be better if you had some company on the road. (turns to Stefan) Thank you, Stefan. (Stefan nods and heads for the door)
Caroline: (hugs Liz) I will call you every hour on the hour.
Liz: I will set my watch by it.
Caroline: I love you.
Liz: I love you, too. Bye.
(Caroline and Stefan leave; Liz sighs and sits in her chair tiredly)
(Caroline and Stefan are walking through an art exhibit)
Caroline: (she has her cell to her ear, on hold) So your friend I've never heard of is a world-famous photographer?
Stefan: Well, it's a student exhibition.
Caroline: Oh, goody. Freshman art. Since you're so good at noticing untapped potential. How do you know this person again?
(someone talks to Caroline on the other end of the line)
Caroline: Oh! Yes, I did call earlier about a consult with Dr. Moore? Great. (to Stefan) Okay, they can see us right now.
Stefan: You know what? I'm gonna catch up.
Caroline: Okay. Uh, Oncology Center, D4. Come find me.
Stefan: Okay.
(Caroline turns and leaves the room; Stefan approaches one of the instructors)
(Stefan's phone rings; it's Caroline)
Stefan: Hi.
Caroline: I thought you were meeting me here.
Stefan: Yeah, I got into a bidding war over a piece of art. (Enzo laughs)
Caroline: Okay, that's fascinating. Can you just get here? I'm--I'm conducting an experiment.
Stefan: What kind of experiment?
Caroline: I'll show you when you get here. Just hurry.
(she hangs up)
(Collin Phelps is up and at the vending machine excitedly; Caroline and Stefan are watching him from down the hall)
Caroline: An hour ago, he was dying of brain cancer. Now, look at him. (Stefan sighs) Smile, Stefan! This is good news! My blood worked, he's totally fine.
Stefan: It seems too easy.
Caroline: As opposed to what? Vampire blood heals a stab wound like it was never there? It's always easy, Stefan. It is literally magic.
Stefan: Okay, then why have I never heard of our blood curing cancer before?
Caroline: Because vampires don't spend their lives pulling charity work at the sick ward.
Stefan: Look, I want this to work, okay? I do--
Caroline: Stefan, I just...I need you to believe it will work. Or at the very least, just believe that I believe it will work.
Stefan: (sighs) Well, I can see that you believe it.
Caroline: (smiles) Then take me home to my mom.
(Stefan turns and looks at Collin, sighing. He then turns back to Caroline and nods)
Stefan: Okay. Let's go home.
Caroline: (grinning) Okay.
Stefan: Come on. (they walk away)
(Collin is still standing by the vending machine, eating his snack happily)
(Stefan and Caroline arrive at Caroline's house, talking on her front porch)
Caroline: So, if Sarah is Zach's daughter, then does that make you Uncle Stefan?
Stefan: (jokingly) I tell you this secret I've been keeping for 18 years, and that's what you're worried about?
Caroline: No, I think it's incredibly noble that you've been keeping an eye on her all these years. And she's lucky to have you in her life, even if she has no idea.
Stefan: Hey, so, I know it goes without saying, but I would appreciate it it--
Caroline: Your secret's safe with me, Stefan.
Stefan: Thank you.
Caroline: No, thank you. Thank you for coming with me today and for rewiring my mom's speaker system and for just not treating me like a crazy person, because that's how I've felt these past few days.
(Stefan takes her hand; they both look at their hands, then into each other's eyes; Caroline takes a deep breath and exhales)
Caroline: So, thank you. Wish me luck.
(Caroline turns and goes inside; Stefan watches for a moment through the window)
-- Woke Up With a Monster

(Stefan arrive at Caroline house)
Stefan: Hey.
[[Caroline] Forbes|Caroline]]: Hey. Mom's still sleeping. Don't wake her up.
Stefan: What happened?
Caroline: I don't know. H-he was fine when we left him at Duke, remember? He was running around and pain-free and scarfing down all that disgusting vending machine food.
Stefan: Yeah? Well, clearly, he's not fine now. Wait. I thought you compelled him to forget everything after you fed him your blood. How did he find you?
Caroline: I don't know.
Stefan: What if this blood isn't even his? Is there any chance that your mom signed the house over to you?
Caroline: I don't know. Maybe. She's been running around like crazy, saying she need to get her ducks in a row or...
(Stefan opens the window; Colin's face starts to burn)
Stefan: He's a vampire, which means after you fed him your blood...
Caroline: He died.
(Caroline is at a vending machine)
Stefan: (comes over) Hi.
Caroline: Hey. The coffee machine's broken. Seriously, what kind of hospital is this? If you can't fix a coffee machine, then how are you supposed to be able to fix people?
Stefan: Sure you don't need some real food? There's probably a machine around here that vends (whispers) O-positive.
Caroline: (sighs and leans against the vending machine) I screwed up. Big time. Why did I feed her that blood?
Stefan: You were trying to help.
Caroline: No, I was trying to fix something that I had no business trying to fix. It's like textbook definition of control freak from Hell.
Stefan: Listen, you are an optimist. (Caroline sighs) You wanna believe that anything is possible and that is exactly what your mom needs to hear right now. Okay?
(Exclamations of pain from Colin's room)
Caroline: That's Colin's room.
(Colin is stabbing himself in the chest with a metal bar; Caroline and Stefan enter, closing the door behind them)
(Caroline is browsing flowers; Stefan comes in)
Caroline: Good, you're here. I actually need a second opinion. I kind of like this because sunflowers are her favorite flower, but at the same time, I was also thinking maybe they're a little too over-the-top cheerful for a memorial service. (walks over to the roses) So this was the second option, um, because roses are classic, right? I mean, especially in this shade of pink. Obviously, I would change out the vase, but--
(Caroline looks over to Stefan, who is just watching her)
Caroline: If you're thinking of saying something to make me feel better, don't. I don't deserve to feel better.
Stefan: I wasn't.
Caroline: Good.
Stefan: I was actually thinking that you have far more important things to do than plan a memorial service for your mother. Who's still alive, by the way.
Caroline: Yeah, but all of this still needs to be done, right? She's not gonna want to live out the rest of her life as a vampire in excruciating pain. So I should do something that I'm good at, instead of making everything worse. Which arrangement?
Stefan: Caroline, you took a risk. It didn't pay off, but you did it out of love. You made your mother sicker, okay? But what are you gonna do now? Are you just gonna bury your head in the sand?
Caroline: I don't--I don't know what to say to her.
Stefan: You don't have to say anything to her. Just sit with her.
Caroline: (on the verge of tears) I can't. I can't even face her.
Stefan: Look, when I was young, my mom, she got really sick. And instead of spending time with her, I did everything I could to avoid her. Like picking out her favorite flowers or walking into town to get the tea that she liked. And I pretended like I was doing it for her, but I wasn't. I was just afraid to see her like that. And then my dad, he uh, he sent her away and she died. I would give anything to have one more day with her.
Caroline: What if she can't forgive me?
Stefan: She doesn't think there's anything to forgive. She just wants you to be with her.
(Caroline sighs and takes Stefan's hand; they leave the flower shop together)
(Caroline is talking with Liz, Stefan comes in with a cup of coffee)
Caroline: Hey.
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: Where'd you get that?
Stefan: I guess someone fixed the coffee machine. (gives Caroline the coffee)
Liz: That smells amazing. I would give you a million dollars for a decaf latte. What do you say? Would you mind getting one for your poor, sick mom?
Caroline: I can do that. I'll be right back. (gets up and leaves the room)
Liz: (to Stefan) So, looks like we can cross miracle cure off the list.
Stefan: Must be some other option.
Liz: I need you promise me something.
Stefan: Okay.
Liz: When I'm gone, Caroline is gonna need you. Even if she doesn't know it. She's gonna need someone to help her move on with her life. Someone to just make her smile. (crying) Promise me that you will do that, Stefan.
Stefan: (takes Liz's hand) I promise.
(Caroline is outside the door, listening)
(Caroline is looking at Miss Cuddles on the table. Stefan walks over to her.)
Caroline: Is it just me, or do her eyes follow you around the room?
Stefan: (Looks at the bear) Hmm. It's definitely you.
Caroline: I haven't seen Miss Cuddles in 12 years.
Stefan: Well, that's the bear Bonnie sent back from 1994. I guess she lost the original.
Caroline: No. She didn't lose her. I took her. (turns the bear around) Yeah. When Bonnie and I were little, we got in this huge fight, so to get back at her, I bearnapped Miss Cuddles, and then I didn't want my mom to come home and find out, so then I buried her in the woods. I even left some M&M's to mark the spot where I left her, but something must have eaten them.
Stefan: Well, I'm pretty sure that Bonnie is over it by now.
Caroline: Miss Cuddles isn't. She's out there all alone like Bonnie. You know what? I'm gonna go find her.
Stefan: You're gonna what?
Caroline: Yeah. It's Bonnie's birthday. (takes on her jacket)
Stefan: Wait, wait. Hold on. Caroline, you've been going through a lot lately. Do you think that maybe you're just a little confused about what you're actually upset about?
Caroline: Yes, probably, but my mom's dying, and my best friend is stuck in an alternate universe, and her bear is in a hole in the woods, and there's only one of those things that I can do anything about.
Stefan: Right.
(Stefan and Caroline leaves)
(Caroline is on the woods)
Caroline: (shoves the shovel into the ground, while Stefan appears behind her) You know, if you were gonna creepily stalk me, you could have at least brought a shovel.
Stefan: Nah. I'm not big on digging. (holds up his hands) Calluses.
Caroline: You bury corpses all the time.
Stefan: Yeah, but I don't dig them up. So do you really think that finding a Teddy Bear will make everything right in the world?
Caroline: You know what? You are right. This is such a waste of time. I really should be at the dive bar, picking a fight with a stranger in order to feel pain.
Stefan: Ooh.
Caroline: Look. If you think I'm insane, I get it. I probably am, but nobody is forcing you to be here.
Stefan: I should probably stay, keep an eye on you, you know, in case you have a psychotic breakdown.
(She smiles to herself)
(Still on the woods)
Stefan: (teasing) Hey. Is that an M&M?
Caroline: (turns towards him hopeful) Where?
Stefan: (pointing) Right there. Little to the left, little to the left. Right there, right-- oh, ohh. Sorry. It was just a leaf.
Caroline: (angry) Is this funny to you?
Stefan: Well, we are in the middle of the woods, searching for a Teddy bear buried in a shallow grave by a 9-year-old version of you. I can't even say that with a straight face, so, yeah, that is funny.
Caroline: You're drunk. Give me that. (Tries to take his liquor bottle)
Stefan: (pulls it out of her reach) No, no, no. You have more ground to cover.
Caroline: (annoyed) You're a jerk.
Stefan: Jerk, huh?
Caroline: Yeah.
Stefan: Oh, you sound angry.
Caroline: I'm not angry, ok? I'm just annoyed because I am going through a highly emotional situation right now, and you're just sitting there, mocking me.
Stefan: Definitely angry.
Caroline: I'm not angry, ok?
Stefan: Well, you should be. Your mom is dying, your best friend is stuck in some netherworld, and you're sitting here trying to make it all better by finding a stuffed animal?
Caroline: (pushes him) Shut up!
Stefan: That make you feel better?
Caroline: No.
Stefan: Try again.
Caroline: (pushes him again) Screw you!
Stefan: That's good. Get it out.
(she beats his leg with the shovel, causing him to drop down on the ground. She takes his liquor bottle and he then managed to get her down on the ground as well.)
Caroline: Oof! (Both groaning) I cannot believe you just did that.
Stefan: Well, you started it. Felt good, though, didn't it?
Caroline: (smiles to him) Maybe a little.
(They still are lying on the floor)
Caroline: Well, I think I got all the catharsis out of this that I'm gonna get. Let's go home. (stands up)
Stefan: All right. Wait a minute. What is that? (stands up and points)
Caroline: Shut up.
Stefan: No, no, no. I'm serious. Is that an ear?
Caroline: Oh, my God.
(walks over and digs up miss cuddles Cuddles. looks at Stefan and laughs)
Stefan: I'm sure we can clean her up, make her as good as new.
Caroline: Yeah. Oh, wait.
(The bears head rips off. They both start laughing.)
Stefan: Hey.
Caroline: I'm sorry.
(Stefan hugs Caroline and she starts crying)
-- Prayer For the Dying

(Stefan at the Forbes cabin, standing on the porch drinking bourbon, Caroline opens the front door and joins him)
Caroline: [Sighs] They're running a little late. Apparently, my mom chose today to tackle an entire career worth of cold cases.
Stefan: Hmm, well, they're gonna have a lot of catching up to do. So, I realize it doesn't matter.
Caroline: What doesn't matter?
Stefan: It doesn't matter what book your mom reads in her final precious moments. It doesn't matter if it's good or if it's terrible. It doesn't matter because life isn't about your final moments. It's about the moments that led up to them. (Music playing)
Caroline: I know. I just wanted it to be perfect, you know? I just wanted...
Stefan: Control? Hey, look. If anyone can control death... It's you.
Caroline: I know that she asked you to look after me.
Stefan: Caroline, that's not what...
Caroline: I'm ok with it, really. I'm glad, actually, because I don't know if I would be able to get through this on my own.
Stefan: I'm not here because your mom asked me to look after you.
Caroline: Then why are you here?
Stefan: Well, because you're my friend, because I know what it feels like to lose a mother, and because when you told me you hated me, that was pretty much the worst thing I had heard in a long time.
Caroline: I think we both know I never really hated you. (They kiss)
Caroline: One of us should probably say something.
Stefan: Go for it.
Caroline: Not that.
-- Stay

(Many people are walking in for the funeral while Caroline is inside looking at Liz's dead body and Stefan walks in)
Stefan: Caroline? Doing alright?
Caroline: Yeah. Fine. All things... considered.
Stefan: (walks over) Sure you're doing okay?
Caroline: Mm-hmm. Yeah. No. I don't know. Just now, I was supposed to put you into a category so I would know what to say to you, but then I realized I didn't know what category you would want to be put in. So, uh, I was thinking, I guess there's no time like the horribly inappropriate present to get to the bottom of that. (pause) I could list the categories if you like.
Stefan: Caroline, I, um... I-I want to talk to you about all this. I do, but, maybe when we're alone and you've had a chance to get through the day.
Caroline: Yeah. God, of course. Um, this is not the time. I'm so sorry.
Stefan: Hey, hey. (hugs Caroline) Don't be sorry. (lets her go) We'll talk when all this is over. (leaves the room)
-- Let Her Go

(Caroline and Stefan continue to drink at the bar as they watch the ravers.)
Caroline.: (Judging an outfit) Well, that's certainly a look.
Stefan: Don't be jealous. (Caroline laughs and Stefan smiles)
Caroline: You know, you should smile more. You're hot!
Stefan: Oh, thank you.
Caroline: And obviously you're here to babysit me, but I've had less attractive babysitters. Granted, they were old women, and I was 8.
Stefan: I'm not here to babysit you, Caroline.
Caroline: Yes, you are. You, Elena, Bonnie. You don't think that I can live a normal, humanityless vampire existence without killing anyone and you feel guilty for being such a royal ass at my mom's funeral.
Stefan: You're right I was, and then when I came to apologize and tell you how I really felt, you were gone.
Caroline: And now I don't care.
Stefan: But I do, so let me tell you how I really feel.
Caroline: I said I don't care.
Stefan: (Ignoring her) I like you, Caroline.
Caroline: Stop.
Stefan: I don't know when it became more than friendship, but it did, and it scared me, so I-I pushed it away, but here we are.
Caroline: (Laughs, amused) Wow! See? That wasn't so hard, was it? Only took a couple of years, cancer to devour my mom, me to flip my humanity off, but you finally spit it out!
Stefan: That's good. Anger. That means you want to feel.
Caroline: No, Stefan. You know what? It just means that I'm pissed, so leave me alone. (She turns to walk away but Stefan stops her)
Stefan: Hey, hey. (He pulls her toward him) Let it in. It will hurt, and you'll want to die, but I will be here. I will help you through this. But you have to give me a chance. (He reaches out his hand and caresses her cheek) Please. (Caroline stares at him as if she's considering this for a moment) Come back. (She closes her eyes and leans her face into his hand for a second)
Caroline: (Snapping her eyes open and staring at him sadistically) You shouldn't have done that. (She pushes his hand away and leaves him alone at the bar disappearing into the crowd of ravers.)
-- The Downward Spiral

Stefan: Marry me. I don't expect you to believe that I'm sorry, or that I love you because I say it. I need to show you. Marry me.
Caroline: I thought you had to figure things out.
Stefan: I did. I figured out that I'm an idiot. I'm intellectually challenged, maybe even blind. I couldn't see that everything that I was looking for was right here in you. I have a lifetime of work to do to make things right, but I can't imagine doing it without you.
Caroline: No! No. I don't want to let go of you. But you're human now. Do you know what that means?
Stefan: It means I get to grow old with my best friend. It means I get to help my wife raise her two beautiful children, and their children after that. It means I get to fight to be the man that you deserve, until the day that I die. I love you. Will you marry me?
Caroline: Yes. Yes, of course.
