Damon/Elena, Not the Worst Company (Season 01, Episode 11, "Bloodlines")
For me, this is the only time we've ever seen Damon and Elena completely at ease, comfortable, happy-smiley with one another (okay, without alcohol in the picture -- as it was earlier in the episode). There was just the slightest mention of Stefan (a Damon taunt that only received a smile from Elena), or Damon's wicked, wicked ways. They were just two individuals having a conversation, revealing bits about themselves, connected in the aftermath of a traumatic event in which they'd both lived through, and in Elena's case, triumphed. And the kicker was Damon's repeated "You're not the worst company, Elena," that was just filled with such a quiet happiness, as well as a tinge of realization that he really liked this girl. Just for her. Not because of Katherine, or because it would piss Stefan off, but just because he liked Elena. And Elena just kept on smiling.
Sigh. Just thinking about it, writing about it, gives me a giddy, happy smile. :)
