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 20 notable quotables from Season 3,  Episode 11, “Our Town.”

20. Can I get a do-over?
Klaus: "I was hoping we’d pick up where we left off. But, here you are guzzling vervain like the rest of them, I’m sure. So much for friendship."
Stefan: "Friends don’t strip friends of their free will."
Klaus: "Okay, granted, yeah that was a little extreme. But I get a little moody. Just ask my siblings."

19. Amen!
Meredith: "Thank God, another day drinker."

18. Stress: the follicle killer
Damon (to Stefan): "Relax, brother. You don’t want your hair to fall out."

17. Who’s the boss?
Caroline: "Can you at least tell me what you’re planning to do about your sire-bond to Klaus?"
Tyler: "There’s nothing that I can do about it, Caroline. That’s the point."

16. There goes our property value
Damon: "These hybrids. They’re really bringing the neighborhood down."

15. Founders keepers
Klaus: "I’m surprised you’re still in town. I gave you your freedom, you could have gone anywhere."
Stefan: "I live here, Klaus."
Klaus: "Well if we’re playing this game, then I was here first."

14. Tell the truth why don’tcha
Stefan: "I don’t like your hybrid friends. They’re everywhere, kind of like fleas."

13. I spoke too soon
Mindy: “Is everything okay?"
Klaus: "Everything’s fine, Mindy. Stefan was just leaving after failing to make his point."
Stefan [grabs a saw off the table and decapitates Mindy]: "You may want to send the rest of them away before it gets messy."

12. Birthday, schmirthday
Caroline: "You know I didn’t even like 17. I mean technically the only point to 17 was to get to 18. It’s a filler year. I’m stuck in a filler year."

11. Collateral damage
Klaus (to Stefan): "Maybe I’d be willing to lose one brother if it meant killing yours."

10. Toastmaster Gilbert
Elena: "Amen or cheers or whatever."

9. Now that’s flirting
Meredith: "Alaric Saltzman, miracle patient."
Alaric: "Dr. Fell."
Meredith: "I’m glad to see you’re still alive. Half of me thought you’d drop dead in your sleep."
Alaric: "Yeah, well, I guess I have nine lives."
Meredith: "Not a bad thing to have in a town with a vampire problem."

8. Drunk dial much?
Caroline (to Elena): "What? I’m delicate."

7. Party pooper
Matt (to Bonnie): "You’re ruining a perfectly good funeral."

6. Tell it like it is
Damon: "You want to beat the villain, you’ve got to be smarter."
Stefan: "No, no. To beat the villain, Damon, you have to be the better villain."

5. You don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone
Stefan: "Destroying Klaus is all I have left."
Elena: "You had me."
Stefan: "I lost you the minute I left town with Klaus. You just haven’t let yourself admit that yet."
Elena: "Is that what you’re doing, trying to make me hate you?"
Stefan: "I don’t really care what you think about me anymore, Elena."

4. Don’t hold back
Caroline: “Are you going to kill me?”
Klaus: “On your birthday? Do you really think that low of me?”
Caroline: “Yes.”

3. Stefan’s new normal
Damon (about Stefan): “He just tried to behead someone in the middle of a council party. He’s operating on ‘crazy.’”

2. Good pep talk

Klaus: “I’ll let you in on a little secret. There’s a whole world out there waiting for you. Great cities and art and music. Genuine beauty. And you can have all of it. You can have a thousand more birthdays. All you have to do is ask.”

Caroline: “I don’t want to die.”

1. To kiss or not to kiss

Elena: We can’t. It’s not right.
Damon: It’s right. It’s just not right now.
