30 Quotes That Every Fan Will Remember From "The Vampire Diaries"

    There is a disproportionate amount of Damon Salvatore quotes on this list.

    For those who need to spark joy, I recommend the journey that is binge-watching all eight seasons of The Vampire Dairies. This pinnacle teen drama first aired on The CW and now resides for your streaming pleasure on HBO Max.

    After leaving the Netflix roster earlier this month, the series rose from the grave one day later on HBO Max. This means there's still plenty of time to decide whether you're Team Stefan or Team Damon.
