Alaric 'Rick' Saltzman Quotes
Alaric: Neither one of us should be here right now. We spent our lives dodging fate and beating the odds. But because we did I got to meet you, the most beautiful, hilarious, and intimidatingly brilliant woman I have ever known. You inspire me. You've shown me that happiness is something I can actually have in my life. And so, I promise to be with you and love you and to dodge fate with you for the rest of our lives.
Jo: Oh, god. That's a tough act to follow. Here goes. Alaric Saltzman, you are...
Jo: You haven't seen my dad, have you?
Alaric: No, but it's big of you to invite your attempted murderer to our wedding.
Alaric: What rhymes with battlefield clamp?
Damon, if you take that cure, you can never be a vampire, ever again.
Jo: I'm marrying an idiot. You could have died today.
Alaric: As opposed to any other day?
Jo: I've thought about it and anyone named Alaric should not be allowed to name another human.
Alaric: I didn't name me!

Jo: Pretty sure?
Alaric: Yeah, at least 92%.
Look, my life is full of the martyrs who cave to the bad guy, trying to be heroes, and it never ends well. Somebody inevitably gets hurt--or dead--and that somebody could just as easily be you, or Bonnie, regardless of what you do.
Alaric: Granted, being a vampire hunter doesn't lend itself to a healthy social life.
Jeremy: Yeah, turns out a social life isn't as much fun as kicking vampire ass.
Jeremy: I can't leave now, no way. Not with the sheriff sick and Enzo on a rampage. It's not the right time.
Elena: No kidding because the right time was a couple of eyars ago. Enzo could have killed you today and the other day Liv threw you across a room. And let's not forget the time that you actually died.
Alaric: She's right. Time to get the hell out of here.
Elena: You deserve a normal life, Jer. You deserve the life of a kid whose only baggage is that he lost his parents.
You actually think I'd watch this sober?
[to Damon] You know, I don't know how I went so long without saying this, but you're a real dick!
