  • Quotes

    • Damon: I should eat you.
      Sage: I'm 900 years old, Damon. You're not capable of ending me.

    • Alaric: Tell me again, why are we here?
      Damon: Ric, the world can't stop just because you're an accidental psycho killer.
      Meredith: Do you have any tact whatsoever?

    • Elena: (referring to Stefan) You stood there and let him feed on an innocent girl.
      Damon: I didn't let him do anything. If you want to get nitpicky about it, I made him.
      Elena: Why would you do that?
      Damon: Because we're vampires, Elena. We need human blood to survive. We're predators, not puppies.
      Elena: Well, Stefan found a way around it before.
      Damon: Stefan just built himself a delusional wagon which he's repeatedly fallen off of. What he needs to learn is control.
      Elena: He was able to manage when he was drinking my blood. Small amounts every single day.
      Damon: Ah, yes! Back when you two were in love and it was all rainbows and unicorns.
