One thing we’ll never say about The Vampire Diaries: “You took the words right out of our mouths.” Elena and the gang utter things we’d never dream of saying — or at least hope we never have to. Without further ado, here are the 15 notable quotables from Season 3, Episode 8, “Ordinary People.”
15. A great coping mechanism
Alaric (to Elena about Damon): “Just ignore him. That’s what I do.”
14. Location, Location, Location!
Elena: “Where are you?”
Damon: “No idea. But I’m pretty sure I’m over dressed.”
13. Wise words from a wicked lady
Rebekah [to Elena]: “Stefan? Don’t worry. I’m off him until he starts treating me better. In fact, you should probably take a page out of my book, if I’m being honest.”
12. Papa used to say
Mikael (to Klaus): “Some days it’s a miracle you’re still alive, boy.”
11. Bring it eon
Elena [about Rebekah]: “She’s a 1,000-year-old vampire who’s joined the cheerleading squad.”
10. His brother’s keeper
Damon: “You know I’m not a big champion of this whole Lexi Recovery Plan. But Elena thinks this place is going to weaken you out. Break you down and make you feel again.”
Stefan: “And we should all listen to Elena, right? I mean, her plans always work out so well don’t they. Why are you here?”
Damon: “What are you talking about? It’s family day at vampire rehab. I’m just paying a visit to my baby brother.”
9. Now that’s a gem
Bonnie: “I brought you the necklace that wouldn’t die.”
8. Isn’t it ironic?
Stefan: “It’s precision born out of tragic boredom.”
Damon: “All that effort wasted trying to tell you how boring you were and you finally agree with me?”
7. Poker face
Damon: “You really have given up."
Stefan: "Actually, this is my happy face."
6. Warped priorities
Rebekah [to Elena]: “We don’t have time to care about humans and their silly little lives.”
5. Maybe try Meet Up?
Elena: “Find someone else to play with. Maybe you can compel yourself a friend.”
4. Is this what they call, “foreshadowing”?
Rebekah [on why her mother didn’t turn]: “A witch is nature’s servant. A vampire is an abomination of nature. You can either be one or the other. Not both.”
3. The apple doesn’t fall far from the white ash tree
Rebekah [to Elena]: “Make no mistake: If you come after my brother, I will rip you apart. And I get my temper from my father.”
2. Takes one to know one
Stefan: “Aw. You better be careful, brother. Your humanity’s showing.”
1. Sisters from another mister
Elena [to Damon about Rebekah]: “She’s just a girl. She loves blindly and recklessly even if it consumes her. And when it’s all said and done, there’s nothing more important than the bond of family.”
Damon: “You should tell it to my brother.”
