The Damon Humor

Probably the only TV show that had me so hooked (okay after Charmed and Prison Break) is Vampire Diaries. I have always loved vampire tales. Be it in movies (Underworld -seen them all) and books (Twilight - read them all). There's something about vampires that make their story all the more intriguing and charming.

Anyway, what makes this show so addictive? I could do a little rundown of the story in a heartbeat, the compelling twists in the plot plus the complex characters - but... it all boils into one thing - DAMON SALVATORE.

Ooppss! Team DAMON here! Sorry Stefan fans... This is my blog so I can pretty much profess my love for Damon Salvatore (Ian Sommerhalder).

He is smoldering hot. Gorgeous. His bad ass attitude is sooo sexy. His character keeps me eager to watch every single episode since Season 1.

I've never admired any bad guy in any movie - except for this eternal stud.

Damon is famous for his one liners. His funny, witty quotes are hard to match. There's something with the way he delivers his lines, the way he does the "eye" thing, his brows, his facial expression - incredibly Damon.

Whenever Damon talks I'm all ears. And I take note some of his famous lines.

Here's my list. Those in blue are my faves.

“Don’t mistake the fact that we haven’t set you on fire in your sleep for trust.”

"I’d fight me" – to Stefan (ensuing fight with Stefan)

“Aren’t you worried that one day all the forest animals are gonna band together and fight back?” –to Stefan (re stefan’s diet preference)

This is reality and there’s no such thing as werewolves or combat turtles.” – to Stefan

“Tried to kill a werewolf. Failed. Now I feel like I’m not living up to my best self.” –to Katherine

“If we start believing in some supernatural, witchy-woo legend from a picture book, we’re idiots.” – to Alaric

“I look at you and I see myself. A less dashing, less intelligent version.” – to Mason

“Can we not do the whole road trip bonding thing? The cliche of it all makes me itch.” –to Stefan

“What I’m about to say is probably the most selfish thing I’ve ever said in my life. I just have to say it once, you just have to hear it. I love you, Elena. And it’s because I love you that I can’t be selfish with you. And why you can’t know this. I don’t deserve you, but my brother does. God, I wish you didn’t have to forget this. But you do." –to Elena

“If you are setting me up in any way I will rip you heart out and shove it down your throat. It’s something I’m very good at.” –to Katherine

“I find hilarity in the lengths that I have to go to to repeatedly save your life.” –to Elena

“I have a secret, a big one. But I’ve never said it out loud. What’s the point? It’s not gonna change anything. It’s not gonna make me good, make me adopt a puppy. I can’t be what other people want me to be. What she wants me to be. This is who I am.”

“You are my existential crisis. Do I kill you or do I not kill you? But I have to Jessica, because I’m not human. And I miss it. I miss it more than anything in the world. That is my secret. But there is only so much hurt a man can take.”

“I’m changing and evolving into a man capable of greatness. Better watch your back, cuz I may just have to go get a hero hairdo of my own and steal your thunder.”

“Come back as a vampire, I’ll stake you myself, so don’t. Cuz I can’t stand the idea of you hating me forever.”

What's so special about this Bella girl? Edward's so whipped!

“There’s no such thing as a bad idea, just poorly-executed awesome ones.” (double like!)

"If I see something I haven't seen before,I'll throw a dollar at it.”

"If this Wolf Man thing is true, I’ve seen enough movies to know it’s not good. It means Mason Lockwood is a real-life Lon Chaney and that little Tyler punk may just very well be Lon Chaney, Jr. which means Bela Lugosi, meaning me, is totally screwed." – to Alaric

"You call, I come. I'm easy like that."

"Great Elena. I`m walking on sunshine. Thanks for asking." – (in a sarcastic tone haha!)

"That`s me. Your trusty bodyguard. Calm in a crisis."

"Yes Stefan, I`ve become you. How tragic for both of us. Gotta run. Have a murder to plan. Busy day"

“Katherine, there are six other bedrooms in this house, go find one.”

Dude? Really? Dude?

That's for me to know and for you to dot, dot, dot(…).

“BTW, that means by the way.”

"... My infringing ability to listen to Taylor Swift!"

"You see, that's why I didn't tell you. Cause you would have never been able to do it. Don't get me wrong, Stefan. I don't mind being a bad guy. I'll make all the life and death decisions, while you're busy worrying about collateral damage. I'll even let her hate me for it. But at the end of the day, I'll be the one to keep her alive."

"So, let me guess... in addition to the moonstone, the doppelganger, the lion, the witch and the wardrobe you need to find this witch burial ground."

Whoever wrote his lines is a freaking genius. And I salute Ian Sommerhalder for being so clever in it.

u know wat, ang maganda kasi sa mga vampire is yung personality nila. nakakahook, napakamysterious kaya everytime may story na may kaugnyan sa vampire,mas gusto natin tong sinusubaybayan.

I love Damon too!!! But I've always liked those kind of characters in movies/tv shows.

Let's see: Chris of Charmed, Lestat of Queen of the Damned, Landon of A Walk to Remember... The list goes on. I mean, I've always been into the "tough on the outside, soft in the inside" kinda guys. Oooohhh...

I never got to catch up on the episodes I missed. Is it true that Elena ended up with him? I heard they kissed.

Sweta said...

I agree with kinda guy :D And his humour ohh..You should check out True BLood if you haven't.There's one mighty Eric Northman you;re gonna fall hard and fast for :D Vampire flicks have always gripped me..beginning with Anne Rice-classy Vampire :D

janjan said...

Midnight driver - tumpak!

Gnetch - yes they kissed. i mean, elena kissed damon on his deathbed. but they're not an item yet. hopefully in season 3 i'd be seeing more of elena and damon.

Sweta - wow!so i'm not the only one who falls for baddy ass. i have a copy of true blood but i never really get to watch it.

I loved Edward from Twilight until I discovered Damon from Vampire Diaries. His sarcastic humor and devilish good looks are intoxicating and addictive!

Sey said...

And that is the reason why I prefer Edward than Jacob. I like that kind of stories too.

Whoever wrote the lines is worthy of admiration.

And you got my crush's MICHAEL so handsome!

janjan said...

mama tink - i'm 100% agreeable on that! :)

Sey - just what i thought.... I just hope there'll be season 2 so will see more of Michael. I'm a bit disappointed with the finale episode. or maybe i was expecting too much.
