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 6, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

20. Like he gives a [bleep!]
Stefan (to Rebekah): “I’m sorry. Your tone implies that I’m actually supposed to care.”

19. That’s a spooky sister
Matt: “You can’t just keeping appearing like this. You’re freaking me out.”
Vicki: “I’m a ghost. It’s all I’ve got.”

18. Hear, hear!
Tyler (to Matt): “We’re seniors, man. Life is good.”

17. You say crazy, he says crazy strong
Elena: “You think that I’m crazy to believe that I can protect myself from a vampire who’s flipped the switch on his humanity.”
Alaric: “I think you found a way to get out of bed this morning and that makes you the strongest person that I know. I think that you can do pretty much anything.”

16. Hemoglobin does a body good
Katherine (to Mikael): “A little blood will grease those muscles up real quick. I’m just saying.”

15. Not gonna rain on their parade
Bonnie: “Why should I let the fact that my boyfriend is seeing the ghosts of his dead ex-girlfriends hinder this experience?”
Caroline: “Yes. And why should I let the fact that my boyfriend was turned into a hybrid put a damper on an otherwise fabulous day?”

14. Share and share alike
Damon: “The two brunettes on the staircases owe me a Persian rug.”
Stefan: “You mean they owe us a Persian rug. It’s my house too, Damon.”

13. If you say so
Stefan: “These ladies are helping me be all that I can be.”

12. Pride in one’s hybrid self
Tyler: “I’m his first successful hybrid, Caroline. Don’t you think that’s the tiniest bit awesome?”
Caroline: “Wow. I can’t believe you said that.”

11. He’s got spirit
Elena: “What are you doing here?”
Caroline: “What do you mean? I’m going back to school. Go Timberwolves.”

10. Ghost with the most
Matt (about his sister’s resurrection): “But you’ll still be a ghost, Vic.”
Vicki: “In a town full of vampires, werewolves, and witches. I’ll fit right in.”

9. Consider that debt paid
Caroline: “Why are you acting like some freaky, hybrid slave minion?”
Tyler:Klaus made me who I am, Caroline. I owe him everything.”

8. Who’s Ty’s daddy?
Damon: “He’s been sired.”
Caroline: “So how do I fix him?”
Damon: “Get a new boyfriend.”

7. Talk to the hand
Elena (to Stefan) “Really. Do you think I’m going to let a blood addict tell me how to drink?”

6. The courage to change the things she can
Bonnie (to Jeremy): “Matt’s trying to resurrect his dead sister. I think I’ll go deal with that instead.”

5. Kill her with kindness
Rebekah (to Damon): “Why are you being so nice to me? You hate me. You should be mean.”

4. Ouch!
Rebekah [after she stabs Damon]: “It was never a fair fight between us, Damon. Remember that.”

3. The sweetest taboo
Tyler (to Caroline): “Everything I like about me is you.”
(Ty says this while holding Caroline’s head. Is it wrong that we thought, for a second that he would break her neck?)

2. Party people
Elena: “Uh-oh! It’s the fun police. I thought that Ripper Stefan was supposed to be the life of the party.”

1. Look who’s avoiding the walk of shame
Tyler: “You’re always running out on me.”
Caroline: “You have to earn the overnighter.”
