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 19 “Pictures of You.”

 

1. Baby steps

Damon: We lost count of the consecutive days in which Elena Gilbert hasn’t killed anyone. I’d say that’s progress, brother. 

 

2. Or lock her in the basement

Damon: Silas. Where's my brother, you psychic freak?  

 

3. Manners are everything

Damon: Don’t. Eat. The Prom Queen.

 

4. Elena gets in a zinger 

Damon: You’re underage.

Elena: Yeah well you’re overage and honestly, it’s creepy.

 

5. No love lost.

Damon, to Elena: Yeah well, hindsight is a bigger bitch than you.

 

6. True

Damon, to Bonnie: You all crazy and brainwashed is not a good look. 

 

7. Silas you scoundrel!

Damon, to Stefan: Let me guess, an extremely handsome man came up to you claiming to be me. 

 

8. A crack in the wall, perhaps?

Stefan: Fear.

Damon, to Stefan: One of those pesky human emotions.


 

9. The key is getting in their heads

Stefan: How did [Silas] get to you?

Damon: Started talking about his hair. Figured it had to be you.


 

10. A snarker with a heart

Elena: You’re nothing to me.

Damon:  Really? Then why tell me you’re in love with me? Why tell me it’s the most real thing you’ve ever felt in your life?
