There are many reasons why we love The Vampire Diaries. We love the characters, we love the music, and we especially love the writing. Julie Plec and her gang of awesome writers have churned out some of the most memorable lines in recent TV history in the past four season of the show, but we think Season 5 is going to really take the cake.

In Season 5, Episode 1: “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” we were treated to some epic quips by our favorite Mystic Falls residents. Needless to say, we think this season is off to a great start and we can’t wait to see (and hear) what happens next.

Check out the Top 10 quotes from the October 3 premiere and hit the comment to let us know if you agree or if you have a submission of your own.

Setting her free

Damon: “You’re leaving. You’re going to college. You’re going to drink cheap beer and protest things you don’t care about. And I am going to take care of your little brother.”

The truth hurts

Caroline: “That pit is called guilt. You feel terrible because you broke Stefan’s heart. And that nagging feeling is your brain waking up to tell you that you’ve made a horrible, yet completely reversible, mistake.”

Weird appliances

Elena: “You brought a panini press?”

A bloody good toast

Elena: “To us, and college, and being functional vampires.”

Don’t be tardy

Jeremy: “The freak who faked his own death can’t also be late for math.”

Damon: the babysitter

Damon: “Yep, showered, groomed, and I even cut the crust off his PB&J myself.”

Super judgemental

Rebekah: “5-Star restaurants in Paris to tapping kegs in a park. Tragic.”

Warlock humor

Silas: “Look who’s eating their feelings.”

Roommate 101

Caroline: “Privacy is very important to me. I have low blood sugar, my diet is finicky, so keep your paws off my stuff. And if I suddenly get up and disappear for a while, don’t follow me or look for me.”

Running in heels

Katherine: “Do you have any idea what it’s like to run in heels? I have blisters, Damon!”
