Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) certainly has a way with words. The witty bloodsucker manages to drop bon mots no matter the situation. Check out the charming and churlish things that came out of his mouth in The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 22 “The Walking Dead”

1. He manages his time-table efficiently
Damon: You just missed the donuts.
Stefan: Yeah, I was with Elena, burning off a few thousand-hate-filled calories. What happened to you helping me?
Damon: Help? Yes. Prolonging the inevitable? Waste of my time.

2. Fitness is overrated
Damon, to Stefan: I'm not avoiding. Elena's only goal is to end Katherine's life, and that's not gonna just magically disappear with pilates and a juice cleanse.

3. Like a concert, but with less music and more ghosts
Damon: Where is everybody? I figured with the veil down it would be ghost-a-polooza.

4. Feels like old times
Damon: I thought you were cutting back?
Alaric: I thought you were going to take care of the children.
Damon: You heard that? Well, that’s not creepy.

5. The way to a girl’s heart is through the cure
Damon: What the hell am I supposed to do with this?
Alaric: Get the girl.

6. Sadly, there is no A awarded for effort
Damon: She’s strong and crafty, and you’ll die.
Elena: At least I’ll die trying.

7. God bless the busboy
Damon, to Matt: Got any good news for me, Donovan?
