For Mystic Falls’ resident blond busibody, it has been quite a journey! Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) began as the overinvolved high school student, eager to know everyone else’s business, and to always get the last word in edgewise.

 

Now, after four seasons on The Vampire Diaries, she’s also a vampire who has had to contend with the death of her father, becoming a bloodsucker, and losing a boyfriend to the machinations of Klaus (Joseph Morgan). Through it all she remains sassy, smart, loving, dedicated to her friends, and absolutely hilarious. Let’s look at 10 of Caroline’s most quotable moments:

 

1) Love ‘em and leave ‘em — in style.

"Big problem, Matt. Because you took the next step all by yourself, you played the whole thing out in your head, and you decided to bail before even give it a shot. So this really great thing that we had? Don`t worry about losing it, because it`s already gone."

To Matt (Zach Roerig) in Season 1, Episode 12, “Unpleasantville.”

 

2) It’s cool to judge — provided you give good snark.

"This is much better than watching Damon visit cougar-town."

To Matt and Stefan (Paul Wesley) in Season 1, Episode 16, “There Goes the Neighborhood”

 

3) She can’t help that she’s got the best taste.

"So, I don’t get to choose the ring I have to wear the rest of my life?"

To Bonnie (Kat Graham) in Season 2, Episode 3, “Bad Moon Rising”

 

4) Somebody’s been paying attention.

"Why are you looking at him with your Serious Vampire look? … I mean, It’s different from your Worried Vampire look. Neither of which strays too far from your Hey, It’s Tuesday look."

To Stefan in Season 2, Episode 3, “Bad Moon Rising”


5) Pardon her delicate sensibilities.

"Oh my God. You`re not... going to get naked, are you?"

To Tyler (Michael Trevino) in Season 2, Episode 11, “By the Light of the Moon”

 

6) And you thought you had parental problems.

“Do you think my mom wants to kill me?”

To Matt in Season 2, Episode 21, “The Sun Also Rises”

 

7) She did learn from the best, after all.

"Vampire 101: Don`t wear your breakfast to school."

To Tyler in Season 3, Episode 6, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”

 

8) No, but she makes a mean shortbread.

"Please tell me that is a recipe for witch cookies"

To Bonnie in Season 3, Episode 7, “Ghost World”

 

9) Tell us how you really feel.

"Quit hanging out with Rebekah, the evil blood slut."

To Tyler in Season 3, Episode 9, “Homecoming”

 

10.) Stefan does have a bit of the Hasselbeck about him.

"You are good at this, you know? You saved my vampire life, now you are saving hers [Elena]. You should write a book. Go on `The View.`"

To Stefan in Season 4, Episode 3, “The Rager”
