Damon Salvatore is the snark king of Mystic Falls. Sure, he mumbles and has a tendency to smirk. But oh — the things that come out of his mouth! So what witticisms did primetime’s finest bloodsucker drop this week? Here are Damon’s best zingers from Season 2, Episode 17, “Know Thy Enemy.”

6.) Lies, lies, lies, yeah!
Damon (to Sheriff Forbes): “We’re going to need a cover story: Epileptic fit, alcohol binge, banana peel. Whatever works.”

5. There’s a lot you don’t know.
Damon (to Bonnie): “I didn’t know you and Father Witch were so close.”

4. We have to do what?
Damon: “Great, we’ll have to put that on our list of things to do today. ‘Harness ancient dead witch power.’”
Bonnie: “You know where the witches were burned?”
Damon: “Did I forget to mention that?”

3. Dangerous games
Damon (to Bonnie): “Whatever witchy prank you’re playing, don’t. It’s not funny.”

2. The key to my rage
Damon (to Elena): “I’ll be super pissed if you lock me out.”

1. Just so we’re clear
Damon (to Katherine): “Don’t mistake the fact that we haven’t set you on fire in your sleep for trust.”
