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 top 16 notable quotables from Season 4, Episode 5, “The Killer.”

16. Talk about a good buzz
Elena, about Stefan: No, Damon. I didn’t tell him that I got high on blood like some crackhead and then dirty danced with you.

15. Spot it, you got it: Shame
Damon: Oh, I see. Classic shame spiral.
Elena: I’m not in a shame spiral.
Damon:  Oh, you so are. Newbie vampire remorse. It’s worse than a hangover.

14. Not that he’s keeping count or anything
Connor, to Matt: Every vampire that comes for you is another vampire that I get to kill.

13. Vengeance is his
Tyler, about Connor: He shot me like nine times. If we’re killing him, I want in.

12. Umm, maybe you shouldn’t drink that…
Professor Shane, to Bonnie, about the herbal tea: Trust me; it’s better when you smoke it. But I’m trying to be a role model.

11. Actions speak louder
Damon, to Elena: For someone who doesn’t want to be like me, you sure are good at it.

10. Sibling survival
Elena: My brother is the only thing holding me together now, Damon.

9. Hunter know thyself
Connor: The mark has the answer to the why I am the way I am. The more I kill, the more it grows. And once it’s complete, I’ll know my story. And all this will have meant something.

8. You stayin’ with my man?
Caroline: I know all of Ty’s buddies and I haven’t heard about you. So why don’t we cut the crap.
Hayley: Yeah, I don’t do teen drama, so take it up with Ty.

7. The simple truth
Connor: Vampires kill humans. Hunters kill vampires.

6. Now those he’s counted
Connor, to Jeremy: You may be a potential hunter, but if you make one move I’ll break all 26 bones in your hand.

5. She’s bad!
Damon, about Connor: Elena, this guy is dangerous.
Elena: So am I, Damon.

4. Oops!
Elena, to Connor: You missed

3. Girlfriend’s about to trip
Caroline, to Tyler: I keep waiting for you to make up some dumb story so that at least I can call you a liar. Is that now?

2. That’s a good question
Matt: Are you ok?
Jeremy: Yeah, I’m just sick of all the secrets.

1. But this one is better
Damon: Do you want to cure her because she’s a vampire and she’s not cut out to be or because you can’t love her if she is one?
Stefan: I’ll always love her. But she’s not supposed to be this person. I don’t want her to be.
Damon: Well, if I’m going to ride this fairy tale to its conclusion, I’m want to be very clear about one thing.
Stefan: What’s that?
Damon: I’m fine with her either way, brother. So if I do this, I’m doing it for you.
