It’s early days yet when it comes to Original Vampire knowledge. Where do they come from? Where are they going? Who knows. The only thing we’re sure of is that Klaus is pretty charming, considering his sadistic tendencies. Maybe it’s the accent, but even when he’s saying blood-chilling things, we’re still enchanted by his words. Check out some of Klaus’ top quotes of Season 2.

1. When killing is kindness

Katherine: Please just kill me, Klaus.
Klaus (as Alaric): And show you kindness? I’ve searched for you for over 500 years. Your death is going to last at least half that long.
(Season 2, Episode 18, “The Last Dance”)

2. Shortest dance ever

Greta: My duty is to Klaus and the new order.
Klaus: Glad to hear I still have a dance partner.
(Season 2, Episode 21, “The Sun Also Rises”)

3. Just like in 'Top Gun'

Stefan: I’m not like that anymore.
Klaus: Well that’s too bad. You would have made a hell of a wingman.
(Season 2, Episode 22, “As I Lay Dying”)

4. Alaric looks pretty good, considering he’s only human

Klaus (as Alaric): In this body? I’m a haggard history teacher. She could easily hurt me. I mean, not me, Klaus, me, but… you know what I mean.
(Season 2, Episode 18, “The Last Dance”)

5. It’s not like Alaric can afford anything but Supercuts on a teacher’s salary!

Katherine: Where’s he going?
Klaus: To retrieve me so I can get out of this bad hairdo.

(Season 2, Episode 19, “Klaus”)


6. Klaus isn’t a fan of reformed Stefan

Stefan: Just give me the cure and I’ll do whatever you want.
Klaus: Trouble is, I don’t know if you’ll be of any use to me the way you are now. You are just shy of useless.
(Season 2, Episode 22, “As I Lay Dying”)

7. You’re just mad because he wants to put an end to your murderous rampages

Klaus (as Alaric): the last thing I need to do is resurrect Elijah. Ugh, that guy’s a buzz kill.
(Season 2, Episode 18, “The Last Dance”)

8. You didn’t take out the insurance policy, so there better not be a scratch on him

Damon: Klaus, I presume.
Klaus: In the flesh. [To Alaric] Thanks for the loaner, mate.
(Season 2, Episode 20, “The Last Day”)

9. That’s what you call even? Remind us not to eat your last Girl Scout cookie

Klaus: You betrayed me and fled England before I could give you the details, Katerina. But I did find your birthplace. And I slaughtered your family. So I guess we’re cool.
(Season 2, Episode 19, “Klaus”)

10. That’s probably not exactly what Elijah had in mind

Elijah: My brother gave me his word that he would reunite me with my own [family].
Klaus (right before he stabs Elijah): And so I shall.
(Season 2, Episode 22: “As I Lay Dying”)
