There are many reasons why we love The Vampire Diaries. We love the characters, we love the epic music moments, and we especially love the writing. Julie Plec and Co. have churned out some of the most memorable lines in recent TV history over the last four season of TVD — and Season 5 is no exception!

In Season 5, Episode 5 (“Monster’s Ball”), we were treated to a few hilarious quips by our favorite Mystic Falls residents — from Silas’s super-sized ego to Katherine’s signature. Check out the top quotes from the episode and hit the comment to let us know if you agree or if you have a submission of your own.

On defying limitations

Silas: “And even though my brain is on the fritz thanks to an ex-fiance stalker witch who can’t take a hint doesn’t mean I’m not still brilliant and crafty in the power of cell phone tracking.”

On hospitality

Katherine: “If you’re going to hold me hostage, the least you can do is feed me properly.”

On priorities

Katherine: “I go to Paris for shoes. The shoes I remember. For this, I require more details.”

On having a good time

Stefan: “I’m buzzed, and I’m on the verge of having a good time.”

On exes

Tessa: “Nothing personal — a little ex-boyfriend drama.”

On first loves

Silas: “A woman never forgets her first love, no matter how badly it ends.”

On brotherly love

Silas: "Maybe you enjoy breaking your brother's neck a bit too much."

On heartbreak

Caroline: "Love me more than you hate him!"
