The CW’s The 100 may have gone off the air in 2020, but the best quotes from the show’s seven seasons will live on like any other of our favorite shows. This apocalyptic show features a group of people who come back to Earth after inhabiting a space station for almost a hundred years following a nuclear catastrophe. And while it may not be quite as light and fluffy as shows like Friends or The Office, it’s definitely one that we found ourselves tuning in for week after week to see how the story would play out — and who would inevitably be killed off next. Like we said, not light! Ahead you’ll find more than 100 of the best quotes from The 100, from the silly to the poignant, and when you get to the point where you need a break from the heavy show, flip over to our How I Met Your Mother quotes or Schitt’s Creek quotes for a palate cleanser.
