"I wonder if that’s really the case? Hm? Even when you say nothing, doesn’t everyone act kindly toward you? Even when you say nothing, doesn’t everyone think that you are smart? Even when you say nothing, doesn’t everyone believe that you are kind? Don’t they smile at you? Even when you stay silent, don’t things you hate go away on their own? Even when you do the exact same thing as someone else, isn’t everyone more impressed by your work? Even when you say the exact same thing as someone else, isn’t everyone moved more by your words? Even when you fail, aren’t you not reprimanded? Even when you lie, aren’t you forgiven?”- Oshino Shinobu, from Otorimonogatari “Nadeko Medusa” Chapter 14 (emphasis mine).
Looking straight into her golden eyes,- from Kabukimonogatari “Mayoi Jiangshi” Chapter 23
“You and I are one in body and soul.”
I told her.
“Anything I did, you did with me, and anything you did, I did with you.
Even if you might make me angry sometimes, I will never throw you away.
I love Senjougahara the most and respect Hanekawa more than anyone. And there’s nothing I enjoy more than shooting the breeze with Hachikuji. But if I had to choose someone to die with, I would want to die with you.”
"Hey, my servant from another route."- final lines of chapter 29 of Kabukimonogatari “Mayoi Jiangshi”
I was called by Kiss-Shot.
“This isn’t for compensation or a trade. I’m just asking you for a favor: would thou pat me on the head?”
I answered immediately and put my hand on her head.
Running my hands through her pleasant golden locks even as her body melted like clay,
With that, her pained expression finally turned to one of contentedness.
Even as her neck was bitten by Shinobu, that expression on her face didn’t change.
That is how our summer adventure came to a close.
I think it was a lot more educational than any summer homework could be.
“To turn you into spiritual energy - as in, you are asking me to drink your blood.”- from Kabukimonogatari “Mayoi Jiangshi” chapter 29
“Needless to say, yes.”
“Needless to say, you will die.”
“Needless to say, I’m pretty much dead already.”
“Is that right.”
That was all.
That was all Shinobu and Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade said to each other.
In the end, they’re different people from different worlds. Strangers.
They couldn’t be expected to know or to understand each other.
Still, even so,
They didn’t need to say needless words to each other.
“But well, if you want to time travel, I wouldn’t mind assisting you.”- Last lines of chapter 4 of Kabukimonogatari “Mayoi Jiangshi”.
“Don’t you want to return to yesterday?”
And returning her line of sight towards me.
Laughing gruesomely as always.
She said, extremely lightheartedly, with the feel of a game.
"Let’s do it."
“Oi, Heart Under Blade, let’s fight.”
Without a hint of hesitation.
Facing the vampire of legend, she had no intention of backing down.
This specialist of the immortal.
To put it simply, a demon hunter - Kagenui Yozuru.

In the anime adaptation, Shaft cut plenty of dialogue and merged a few others, but it never added any new lines. The only new content they added was the final shot after the credits in the final episode.
For the heck of it, since it was so close to the chapter end, I decided to translate the conversation that immediately follows the conversation in this post. Hope you enjoy:
“Was it Tsukihi?”- Nisemonogatari Volume 2 “Tsukihi Phoenix” Chapter 11, final lines.
“The name of your tiny little sister.”
“Wow, you remembered her name? I’m shocked to see you remembering a human’s name.”
“Hmph, even if I remember names, it’s not like I can tell you guys apart. Plus, she has a rather good name.”
“A good name? Really?”
“I like the Moon (Tsuki) in her name. The Sun is my enemy, but I’ve received a lot of help from the Moon. So it wouldn’t be bad to return the favor here.”
Well, that’s just her made up excuse.
Speaking, Shinobu stood up in the basket and looked back at me, almost making me lose my balance.
“…very well, thank you.”
“There’s no need to thank me.”
“In that case, I’ll buy you donuts again next time. I can’t buy you every single kind, but my allowance should allow a trayful for each of us.”
I’ll accept your kindness, Shinobu said, with her face twisted in a wicked smile as if asking to be seen.
It was a horrible smile.
The smile of an enemy of justice.
“But you know, I have a personal grudge to take care of as well.”
“Hm? A personal grudge?”
“That’s right. That girl who treated me - me, the legendary vampire! - like an old lady needs to be taught a lesson about what a difference in level there is between us.”
“Where are you going? In order to do what?”
“To them. In order to fight.”
“For my little sisters.”
“What do you gain from that?”
“I gain nothing. I just lose a bit of my time.”
“If your choice is to fight, I guess it can’t be helped - if you were to die, I would end up dying along with you. In order to protect myself, I can’t not fight alongside you.”
“…are you saying you’re going to help me?”
“Don’t get the wrong idea; I don’t want to do this - I really really don’t want to do this. I couldn’t care less what happens to your tiny little sister. I can’t help but help you in order to protect myself.”
“Your tsundere act is getting a bit tiresome.”
I said - and started laughing.
“Hmm- didn’t you want to die? Weren’t you a suicidal vampire?”
“Hmph, I’ve already forgotten about that early phase of my character. And I won’t be so reserved like the middle phase either. Right now, I’m just a donut-loving mascot character.”
- Nisemonogatari Volume 2 “Tsukihi Phoenix” Chapter 11
“I’ve kept it a secret until now, but during my 500 years of living, I’ve had thoughts of destroying the human race a few times. But I swear with my fangs and my voice now before you: as long as Mister Donut exists, I shall not destroy the human race!”- Oshino Shinobu and Araragi Koyomi from Nisemonogatari Volume 2 “Tsukihi Phoenix” Chapter 7
“You think big, but your mind is shallow. What a 500 years you must have lived.”
“Hey hey, don’t you think it’d be a good idea to accept my request? Do you want to be interfered with every time you have a chance to meet that twin-tailed girl?”…
“A-are you threatening to take Hachikuji hostage!? My beloved Hachikuji! That’s playing dirty!”
In this case, Shinobu isn’t taking Hachikuji hostage, she’s actually trying to protect her.
“Kuhuhuhu, if I were to use my hypnosis, I could let you touch [Hachikuji Mayoi] all you want without her stopping you.”
“Hmm… you’re trying to bribe me.”
- Oshino Shinobu and Araragi Koyomi from Nisemonogatari Volume 2 “Tsukihi Phoenix” Chapter 6
