It's completely possible that there has never been a Bachelorette antihero quite so wonderful as Chad.
His unique combination of menace, deltoids, used-car salesmanship, cold cuts, and neckbeard has propelled him to become arguably the most important, most watchable thing this show has ever presented. And now he's gone.
After this week, for real. So, we felt it necessary to celebrate Chad's sparkling run (sprinted, with 300 pounds of weights attached to his waist) with the 65 Chaddiest Chad Quotes. Chad on:

"I think you're cool, man. I'm glad I met you."
Chad, on patience:

Chad, on why he didn't think he needed to tell JoJo why he likes her:

Chad, on pool parties and what men see at them:
"I don't get why they're all happy with each other, and they're gonna be all happy to see her in a bathing suit. I'd be happier having her not be in a bathing suit, so they couldn't see her in a bathing suit. I know what she probably looks like, I can tell through her dress."

Chad, on goals:
"Why can't everyone keep my name out of their mouths? Get your own lives."

Chad, on what guys like him are doing right now:
"Whatever guy like me stole your girlfriend or whatever, it wasn't me. I don't know you. I’ve barely talked to you, and honestly, you keep bringing me up."

Chad, on whether or not that's a stupid question:
"That's a stupid question."
Chad, on outdoor space:
"You wanna go outside, RIGHT NOW? Let's go outside, RIGHT NOW. Do YOU wanna go outside? Get up then. Go."
Chad, on popping into someone's house:
"You think this is a show. And you think you're safe, for now. But one day, this ends. And when this ends, you go home. When you go home you think I can't find you? You think I won't go out of my way, to come to your house? I'm dead fucking serious."
Chad, on residential real estate:
"Get the first out of the way. Nobody ever buys the first house they look at."

Chad, on the opposite of down:
"What up man. What's up. What's up."
Chad, on why JoJo probably still loves him:
"I guess she thinks I'm too intense or something."
Chad, on beauty, or the lack thereof:
"Honestly like, in the long run, if a girl doesn't understand it, like, when a guy's backed into a corner with 15 or 20 guys coming after him, a guy's gotta do things that aren't pretty. Sometimes you have to do things that aren’t -- that aren’t pretty"
Chad, on hindsight being 20/20:
"Like I said all along, I’m gonna say, what I wanna say, when I say it. Looking back, I would’ve said the same damn things.”
