KRISTIN: So the fans are obsessed with Damon and Elena. You’re aware of this? They want them together, they want things to happen. What can you tell me?
IAN: I would like to see Elena… smile, maybe a little more. She needs a good joke. But regarding what you asked, Damon may or may not have tried to kill her brother; he may or may not have ruined her life in nine ways to Sunday. So I think there would be a serious uphill battle that Damon would have to trudge up to make that happen.
KRISTIN: …but he’s hot. That trumps everything. I know you killed her brother, but I mean… have you seen the guy.
IAN: That’s what I said.
KRISTIN: Have you seen how Damon looks?!
IAN: I have to see him everyday!
