There are so many iconic Karamel quotes to choose from, but we’ve managed (somehow) to pick our top 10, so here goes:
10. “Today you were a little less goofus and a little more gallant”
"you noticed? I'll take it" 2X09
Not one of the deeper Karamel lines, but one that's stuck with the fandom and referenced a lot, hence it featuring on the list. Their flirting throughout this scene was adorable. Kara getting him a private joke gift in order to show him she noticed how brave he was is so extra and cute. And the fact he was shocked to get praise sums up why we love Mon-El so much. Although, we'd argue that Mon is still a goofus... but in the best possible way.
9. “you know there's one good thing about not working at Catco”
“more time with you" 2X17
In compiling this list we discovered that most of the deeper, more heartfelt lines tend to come from Mon-El; no one can argue the Daxamite has a way with words. But this just makes the occasions when Kara professes her appreciation for him even more special. This was one of them. It's important to note that Mon-El has never had anyone truly care about him before - we can't imagine what these words must have meant to him.
8. "Hi" "Hi" 2X12
Might seem like an odd one to pick, "hi" is a very common and simple word. But in the context of that scene it was so beautiful. Kara, who hates showing vulnerability, spoke for an entire 2 minutes admitting her feelings, took off her glasses and stared into Mon-El's eyes; only for him the break the silence in the most simple but wonderful way possible. And is there anything better than when Karamel whisper to one another? We don't think so.
7. “its blobbed” “way to blob babe” 2X15
Don't you just love it when Kara just goes along with his space puppyisms? And "blobbing" is probably the funniest one, and he even planted a kiss on her cheek whilst saying it.
6. ”I’m just happy… like that dopey grin, butterflies in my stomach happy… is that cheesy?”
“its like a rom com on steroids cheesy… I’m happy you’re happy” 2X16
In the words of one Melissa Benoist "i'm a fan of Kara being happy". Don't you just love how giddy she was in the entire scene? I think we all got some serious #Karamelwood vibes on this one.
5. This entire scene - 2X15
We know it's a slight cop out to put an entire scene as one "quote" but seriously, half the list would be taken up with things said here if we had to separate it all out.
1. He bought her "piping hot" potstickers 2. "you know who else does" "who" "Supergirl" OMG MARRY HIM 3. "you have so much to offer this world, so don't let Snapper or anyone else tell you differently" OMG HAVE HIS BABIES 4. "you know summin... maybe being Supergirl and having you is enough" CRYING IN THE CLUB.
4. "nothing's stopping us?"
"nope, nothing's stopping us" 2X17
This one requires no explanation, it's just iconic,
3. "As long as you’re safe” 2x17 / 2X21
Karamel have SO many parallels; from doors, to couches, to goodbyes. But this has to be one of the greatest. He chose these as the last words he said to Kara before sacrificing himself, and 4 episodes later she chose the same words in a similar circumstance. "As long as you're safe" has become Karamels way of saying goodbye, and also sums up their relationship perfectly, they'd both genuinely do anything to keep the other one out of harms way. Like Mon-El said in a quote that just missed this list "we saved each other today" - and like a Kara quote that also missed a spot, they will "every time".
2. “Who'd have thought? A boy from Daxam & a girl from Krypton, working together” 2X04
An oldie but a goldie. This really marks the start of the ship, as well as describing their dynamic perfectly. They're 2 individuals that should be enemies but have seen beyond prejudices and now "work" together. This is such a specific quote to Kara and Mon-El's relationship which is what makes it so special. Melissa even paraphrased it in an interview:
1. "your eyes were insanely blue... i mean, they always are, but they were like, like comets" 2X10
This had to be our number one. It's not only beautiful, but it's most definitely is the quote that's had the most impact with the fandom. It is referenced all the time (we're pretty sure every Karamel HD photo someone has photoshopped them surrounded by comets) it features in fan art, videos, merch, fan fic, and in so many Karamel usernames. It's even the theme for this very website.
