Nate: Serena, just don’t say anything and let me explain.
Jenny: Oh, my god.
Nate: I’ve been trying to do the right thing, but it’s killing me. Look, I know we both care about Blair, but maybe the best thing is for me to just tell her the truth. I’m not over you, and I thought I could fight it, but I can’t. And if you don’t stop me, I’m gonna kiss you.
Serena: Nate? Nate, what are you doing? It’s almost midnight. You have to find Blair. Look, okay, whatever, just forget the clue. She’s wearing big, tall boots and a big old crown. Just go, okay? Hurry!
Blair: Serena, have you seen Nate? Hey! Jenny…
All: Five, four, three, two, one… It’s midnight, masks off!
Dan: Serena! Serena, wait! I’m so sorry. Serena!
Chuck: Little Jenny Humphrey manages to get my pants off and have me not enjoy it. Quite the accomplishment.
Blair: Good thing someone else at the party was as lecherous as you, or you’d still be up on that roof, and, no, I don’t want to know what you had to do to get that tux. This is me.
Nate: All right, Chuck, I’ll see you in the A.M.
Blair: Unh-unh. No, you didn’t find me by midnight. No happily ever after for you.
Nate: Blair, I’m… I’m sorry.
Blair: All I wanted was for us to start over, and you didn’t even try.
Chuck: Well, at least somebody’s having a good night.
Tuesday, 30 August 2011
Rufus: Lily. There you are.
Lily: Oh, I just needed a moment. That… What just happened…
Rufus: The kiss?
Lily: Yeah, it made me feel a little…
Rufus: Right, um, ouch.
Lily: No, no, I’m kidding, kind of. I’m sorry Rufus, I… Maybe I shouldn’t have asked you here.
Rufus: Right, um, and, um, I’m sorry I kissed you but I did it because that mercenary in the starched white shirt… He doesn’t appreciate everything you have over an attractive 25-year-old mannequin. ‘Cause beauty fades, though yours has done a remarkable job of holding on, and in the long run, it’s gonna be his loss. And I thought he should know how it feels to lose you. ‘Cause trust me, it’s not fun.
Lily: I think it worked.
Bart: Lily, may I speak with you for a moment? If you’ll excuse us.
Rufus: Happy to help.
Monday, 29 August 2011
Dan: Hey, Serena, wait.
Serena: What are you really doing here, Dan?
Dan: What am I doing here? I ran across the city, I rented a tuxedo, I stole this mask from some drunken kid, only to look like Robin. I conned my way in here, all to see you. I care.
Serena: Well, you didn’t seem to care this morning, when you were with another girl and lied to me.
Dan: What? Whoa, whoa, whoa. I didn’t…well… I did. But I can explain.
Serena: Go ahead. Give it your best shot.
Dan: I was with my friend Vanessa. We’re very close and she moved away to Vermont last year and now she’s back.
Serena: Okay, so why’d you lie and say it was Jenny?
Dan: Because I’m an idiot. I… I don’t know why. I… Look, Vanessa and I… Our relationship is a little complicated, or it was, before I met you. And, honestly, I didn’t want anything to get in the way of you inviting me to this… stupid party.
Serena: Well, I was gonna invite you.
Dan: Really? So not into, uh, Pompous Ass the Fourth?
Serena: You’re saying you’re not into old friend Vanessa?
Dan: That is exactly what I’m saying.
GossipGirl: Oh, yes, the other part we love about a masquerade? When the mask finally comes off and the truth is revealed to all.
Sunday, 28 August 2011
Chuck: Well, hello, angel. You must be my lucky night. And with taste to boot.
Jenny: Apparently not. I’m talking to you.
Chuck: Beautiful and mean? I’ve got chills. Care to dance with a poor devil?
Jenny: Why don’t we skip all that, and, uh, go somewhere to talk?
Chuck: I’ll get the champagne.
Jenny: Meet me in five.
Jenny: Let’s play a game.
Chuck: I’d say strip poker, but I don’t have my cards.
Jenny: How about, uh, hide-and-seek? You hide, I’ll seek.
Chuck: And how will you find me? I don’t have any bread crumbs.
Jenny: Well, you can leave me a trail… with your clothes.
Chuck: I have truly died and gone to heaven.
Chuck: Feel free to find me.
Jenny: I found your pants.
Chuck: Well, you're getting warmer, which is an achievement considering you're already hot.
Jenny: Well, you better hope it doesn't get any cold.
Chuck: What is that supposed to mean? What the hell?! Hey, my phone is in my pants, and I'm stuck up here, bitch!
Saturday, 27 August 2011
Vanessa: So this Blair girl, used you as her slave?
Jenny: No, I was her handmaiden.
Vanessa: “Handmaiden” is Jane Austen for “slave”.
Jenny: She never actually said I would get to go to the ball, even if I did all those errants.
Vanessa: Unh-unh. Don’t make excuses for her. You did all that stuff. You deserve to go.
Jenny: I thought you said that masked balls are “totally pretentious”.
Vanessa: One woman’s opinion. But if you wanna go, no Blair should keep you away.
Jenny: It’s not just Blair. I mean, I don’t have a gown.
Vanessa: My friend works in the costume department at B.A.M. We can borrow one. Next?
Jenny: I don’t have an invitation.
Vanessa: Every ballroom has a back door. What else?
Jenny: If Blair saw me, she’d be furious.
Vanessa: Then it’s a good thing you’ll be wearing a mask.
Friday, 26 August 2011
Serena: Nate, hey. What are you doing here? I thought you were, uh, shouldn’t you be getting ready?
Nate: I’m sorry to bother you. It’s, um, do you have a minute?
Serena: Yeah, of course. Come in.
Serena: Maybe it’s old. You know, leftover from the 90’s or something, from some night at limelight or the tunnel? Our parents did way worse staff than we do.
Nate: It’s not old and it makes total sense. I think he’s having some money problems.
Serena: Well, have you asked him about it?
Nate: Yeah. I just wish, you know, I wish he’d be honest with me. It’s like he and my mom… They made some secret pact to act like robots.
Serena: Yeah, well, I don’t think that pact is so secret. I think all of our parents signed it.
Nate: But I’m not a little kid anymore. He doesn’t have to shut me out.
Serena: Look, if what you think is right, he’s probably really scared. Maybe you have to tell him how you feel more than once for him to really hear you, you know? Hey, don’t give up, okay? You should probably go. You know, I’ve gotta get ready and stuff.
Nate: Yeah, me too… Um, look, thanks for just listening.
Serena: That’s fine. Yeah, don’t worry about it.
Nate: Chuck just wanted a bump and Blair’s phone was turned off, so it, um, really means a lot.
Serena: Yeah, anytime, Nate. I’ll see you tonight, okay?Nate: All right, I’ll see ya. Bye.
Thursday, 25 August 2011
Jenny: Well, that's all of it.
Blair: Thank you so much. I don't know what I would've done without you. Thank you.
Jenny: That's okay. That was fun.
Blair: I'm glad. It's all part of your education. And it looks like you're learning. It's a nice bracelet. Vintage, right? The diamonts look real.
Jenny: It's 'cause they sort of are. Uh, the man at the store lent it to me.
Blair: Why would he do that? Oh! Oh, sweetie, you didn't think you were gonna be able to come tonight, right?
Jenny: I thought, maybe, yeah.
Blair: Jenny, freshmen don't get to go to the masked ball. It's just tradition.
Jenny: No, I know. It's just that there were five dresses.
Blair: Oh, it... you always need back-up. I mean, what... what if I spilled something or a zipper broke?
Jenny: Yeah, of course. I'll... I'll remember that. Have fun tonight.
Blair: I will and don't worry. Your time will come. I promise. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get ready.
Wednesday, 24 August 2011
Chuck: So, what exactly are you looking for?
Chuck: Of what? The Captain's dislike of starchy shirts? I totally sympathize. The collars chafe. Did you, uh, ask him about your missing college money?
Nate: Yeah, he said he was moving accounts around. It was all back the next day.
Chuck: So, why worry? Mysterious financial transactions warring parents. Welcome to the Upper East Side. "Chi, chi, get the llello." Nathaniel, I'm shocked. I thought you were strictly a herbal man.
Nate: This isn't mine.
Tuesday, 23 August 2011
Vanessa: God! I love New York! There was only one theater in Woodbury and all it ever played were family movies. "The Pacifier" played for, like, a year.
Dan: And they said Vin Diesel couldn't do comedy.
Vanessa: I can't pick. Overwhelmed by choice. Whatever you want.
Dan: Yeah, sure, whatever.
Vanessa: You do wanna do something, right? I mean, you don't have plans. Big night out with overprivileged, under-parented trust fund brats from your fancy school?
Dan: Yeah, the limo's actually waiting back at the loft.
Vanessa: Good, we can egg it. Maybe slash the tires? So, is it weird, having me back?
Dan: No, why, uh, why... why would it be weird?
Vanessa: Because you said some things the night that I left...
Dan: Things that you immediately asked me to take back.
Vanessa: Because I was leaving... but now I'm here.
Dan: Yeah, and it's been over a year, you know? A lot has happened, actually.
Vanessa: And I look forward to hearing about it tonight. Late show, Angelika? Whatever's playing?
Together: Unless it's "The Pacifier"!
Dan: All right. I'll get tickets.
Vanessa: Glad to be home, Humphrey.
Dan: Glad to have you, Abrams.
Monday, 22 August 2011
Serena: I know him. A masked ball? Dan would never want to go to something that pretentious where he has to wear a mask and a tux?
Blair: He likes you. He would wear a tux and a mask and one of my mother's dresses if it meant that he could go out with you. Come on. What, are you worried that he already has a date? I mean, he is Dan Humphrey.
Serena: Shut up. I don't know. I guess a masked ball is better than a regular party because then all those kids from school that he hates... he won't even recognize them.
Blair: All right. Invite him. I insist.
Dan: Hi. Serena, hey.
Serena: Hey, hi.
Blair: Go ahead. Do it.
Serena: Uh, hey, I was just wondering, are you, uh, are you doing anything tonight?
Dan: Tonight? No, no, nothing. Why?
Serena: Good, because there's this thing, and you'd probably gonna thing it's stupid, but...
Dan: Try me.
Vanessa: Even cold, these are so good. I've missed Rufus's cooking. I have. Rufus, do you have whipped cream?
Serena: Who's that?
Dan: Uh, it's.. it's my sister, but you were saying something.
Jenny: Hi, Blair, what do you want me to do with this stuff?
Blair: Oh, just leave them over there. That's fine. I left you another list.
Dan: Hello? Is anyone there?
Serena: I'm sorry, uh... what?
Dan: Uh, you were asking me something.
Serena: No, uh... No, never mind. Thank you, have a good day.
Vanessa: So, what are we doing tonight?
Serena: I think I need a date.
Sunday, 21 August 2011
Serena: So, Kati mentioned something about a custom-made corset, and I hear there are wigs involved?
Blair: It's a masquerade. You have to conceal your identity. But I do have something special planned for Nate tonight. It's a game. It's a scavenger hunt. Nate starts the night with a clue, which leads him to a lady-in-waiting, who gives him a clue to the next lady...
Serena: Wait. Hold on, you have ladies now?
Blair: If he finds me before midnight when the masks come off, he can claim his prize.
Serena: And what's that? Oh, yeah, right, sorry.
Blair: I just figured that after everything that's happened, or hasn't happened, I should find some way to make it special.
Serena: Well, that's really romantic, Blair. Really. Look, um, if you don't want me to come tonight, I totally understand, I could just...
Blair: What? No, I want you to come. In fact, I was hoping you would be one of my ladies. Would you give Nate the last clue?
Serena: Are you sure you want me to?
Blair: Tonight is all about starting over. I trust you... and him.
Serena: Well, I will be honored to serve you, my queen.
Blair: Well, besides, you're bringing Dan, right?
Saturday, 20 August 2011
GossipGirl: Long ago, when European royals grew bored with palace balls, they took a page from the Peons and added some pageantry. Couture and canapes are just another Saturday night until you add a mask. But preparing for a ball is an event in itself, which is why queens invented handmaidens.
Jenny: So the dresses should be delivered and I'll take the small stuff with me.
Man: Which one is yours?
Jenny: Oh, no. I'm just helping Blair, but I mean you know, we'll see.
Man: Well, here's hoping. We'll put it on Blair's tab.
Jenny: Oh, no, no, no.
Man: The girls at that party are my best costumers. Why not show off my latest wares? Just return it after the ball.
Friday, 19 August 2011
Next episode: s01e06 - : The Handmaiden's Tale:
Dan is torn between two girls when his childhood friend, Vanessa, returns home and declares her feelings for him, just as he and Serena are trying to figure out what they mean to each other. At the infamous masked ball, Blair sends Nate on a scavenger hunt, but Nate is ultimately still distracted by his feelings for Serena. Although Blair makes it perfectly clear that outsiders are not welcome, a disguised Jenny and Dan sneak into the ball. Elsewhere, Lily asks Rufus to accompany her to an Eleanor Waldorf event in order to make Bart Bass jealous.
Thursday, 18 August 2011
Blair: Jenny? Well, well. Looks like you came to play after all. You know which trundle bed is yours. Sleep tight. You earned it.
Jenny: Actually, I’m going home. But, uh, thanks for inviting me, it was a blast.
Blair: What do you mean you’re going home? Nobody ever leaves a sleepover.
Jenny: Well, I guess there’s firsts for everything. Oh, and I’m keeping the jacket, if that’s okay with you. Monday? Lunch on the steps?
Blair: Done and done.
GossipGirl: Word is Jenny Humprey killed at Blair Waldorf’s sleepover. It was a debut the likes of which haven’t been seen since Blair herself. If Blair’s gotta watch her back, Serena needs to keep an eye on her heart. We hear it may have been stolen by Lonely Boy. Putting out an A.P.B., Gossip Girl.
Dan: Well, I can see why your brother would want to leave. That place is, uh, is very depressing.
Serena: And, yet, is designed to treat depression.
Dan: He is a good kid, Eric. He is.
Serena: Yeah. Jenny’s not so bad either.
Dan: Yeah. I.. I know. I know. I just worry about her sometimes.
Serena: Well, worry looks cute on you. Look, I’ve seen Jenny in action and my hunch is she doesn’t let herself get pushed in anything she doesn’t want to do.
Dan: No.. I know… I know.. It’s just that…She’s never mentioned that her idea of a great Friday night consists of painting her face full of make-up and stumbling out to a hip bar in high heels and hanging out with a bunch of drunk wall streeters who don’t even care if she has a name.
Serena: Well, maybe that wasn’t her idea for a great Friday night.
Dan: What do you mean?
Serena: It’s okay for her to want to be friends with the people she goes to school with.
Dan: Why? I’m not.
Serena: And if you made half the effort she did, maybe we would’ve met a long time ago.
Dan: That’s true.
Serena: Then so maybe you would’ve kissed me already.
Dan: No five-star restaurants. No town car.
Serena: No smoky pool hall or bad 80’s music.
Dan: Looks like we finally found common ground.
(Song: Something like that – Tim)
Wednesday, 17 August 2011
Rufus: Hey, I was just about to....
Lily: So, I made some calls. But as it turns out, none of my people know your people. Shocking, but true. Either "Dan Humprey" is an alias or your son is not very popular. Regardless, I need that number.
Rufus: I realised, when I got off the phone with you that I could've been a little bit more understanding.
Lily: You think...
Rufus: I called Dan.
Lily: Thank you.
Rufus: And your son's not with them.
Lily: He's not?
Rufus: But Serena got Eric on the phone, and he's okay, and Dan said they would phone when they were all together.
Lily: Yeah, and you didn't think to call and tell me all of this?
Rufus: I was just about to. Now, I hate to say this, but why don't you sit and wait here? We should hear from them soon.
Lily: Fine. And I'll pass on a glass of that nonpremium liquor that you're drinking. But I will take something to eat. Thank you for offering. What? You still know how to cook, don't you?
Guy: Hey, baby, you want to, uh, maybe show me to the bathroom, get lost somewhere around the coat check?
Blair: Well, my answer is usually "never say never", but for you I'll make an exception. Who let the hedge fund mafia in here? I thought Matchy-Matchy was over.
Jenny: So, Eric's here. Now, it's your turn. Truth or dare?
Blair: Do you have to ask?
Jenny: I dare you to make out with that guy.
Jenny: And mean it.
Blair: Watch and learn, little Humprey.
Guy2: I hope Amanda never finds out.
Blair: Who's Amanda?
Guy1: Just my girlfriend.
Blair: Amanda never has to know, does she?
Guy1: Well, I'm not telling her.
Blair: Look what I got. I dare you to call his girlfriend. Her name's Amanda.
Jenny: Done and done. Hello? Amanda? Hi, this is Bl... Claire.Yeah, I just had my tongue down your boyfriend's throat, and he neglected to tell me you existed until after it was over. Just thought you should know. He's a real catch. Bye.
Blair: All right. Sleepover of the year!
All together: Whooo!!!
GossipGirl: Hey, everybody's got to start somewhere. Maybe little J, isn't so little anymore.
Blair: Too Beyonce. Too Mary-Kate. Too Hannah Montanta. Wow! Even I'm impressed.
Jenny: Um, I don't know. I mean, I don't really... feel right.
Blair: Well, as my mother always says: "fashion knows not of comfort". All that matters is the face you show the world, and your face looks like it's going to a bat mitzvah. But before we continue the renovation... Martini.
Jenny: Oh, no, thanks. I don't like vodka.
Blair: Oh, that's nice, because this is gin. As it should be. It's a party, Jenny. Either swallow that or swipe your metrocard back home. It's up to you. All right people, who's ready for a game of "truth or dare"?
Jenny: Oh, I love "truth or dare". Once I had to eat an entire bag of marshmallows.
Blair: That's nice, little Humphrey, but, um, that's not how we play.
Jenny: Well, how do you play? ... I think I'll go truth.
Tuesday, 16 August 2011
Dorota: It's not bad. I will take that for you, yes?
Blair: Jenny! Oh, I'm so glad you could make it!
GossipGirl: Here's an inside tip, Little J... The faster you rise, the harder you fall. Hope that Hello Kitty sleeping bag doubles as a parachute.
Girl1: Let the games begin.
Monday, 15 August 2011
Dan: Hey, hey, uh, am I early or...
Serena: Uh, no. No, I, uh, I'm just running late. Come in. Um.. excuse me while I go to slip into something less comfortable.
Dan: Sure, sure.
Serena: Talk to me while I change?
Dan: I will.
Dan: Say, it's a nice place that you and... 800 other people have got here.
Serena: Yeah, the, uh, identical surroundings do make you crazy after a little while. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a secret government experiment.
Dan: Most government experiments don't have plasma TVs or maid services. Just something I 've noticed.
Lily: Dan. Does Serena know you're here?
Dan: Yeah, of course. Yeah, she let me in. At least, I hope that was her. She's about, uh, yea tall and very blonde?
Lily: It makes jokes. Cute.
Dan: Big shopping day?
Lily: I had a lot on my mind. So, where are you taking my daughter tonight?
Dan: I.. I don't know. I thought maybe we'd go a walking tour of New York underground, visit my friends, the mole people. They're great, except they only ever eat leftovers. I'm sorry, I don't know why I said any of that. I have this thing, this nervous tic, where I never stop speaking, like, ever. In fact, when I was a little boy, my mom used to say, there was never a word I met that I didn't like. You know what else I like? Your daughter. I really like your daughter. I...Wow..
Eric: I don't understand. He said I was ready. We talked about it in our session this morning.
Lily: What he said is that you could come home, not that you should.
Eric: But, mom, I thought...
Lily: I don't wanna argue about this. I need time to think.
Lily: Look, I told the doctor I would take it under advisement. You can't just walk out of here anyway. There's papers that have to be signed, release forms, insurance...
Eric: I can't believe you. You want to keep me here forever.
Lily: If you still think I'm "keeping you here", that just proves how not ready you are to come home. Look, we'll talk about this tomorrow.
Eric: Yeah. Yeah, you bet we will.
Sunday, 14 August 2011
Blair: What was that I heard? Eric's coming home? Perfect timing.
Serena: How so?
Blair: Well, it gives your mother and brother time to bond alone tonight while you get drunk on schnapps and moon the NYU dorms from the limo.
Serena: Blair, what are talking about?
Blair: S, it's only the most important night of the fall.
Serena: Oh, the sleepover.
Blair: I prefer "soiree". "Sleepover" is so sophomore year.
Serena: Look, you know I can't go to that. I have that plan.
Blair: Serena, when there's a Waldorf soiree, there's nothing else on the social calendar.
Serena: Blair, the plan is Dan. Remember the guy you realised is actually human being and worthy of your time and attention? No offense.
Jenny: None taken.
Serena: Look, I'm really sorry, but this break is unbreakable. Maybe we can swing by later or something..
Blair: I'm not a stop along the way. I'm a destination and if you refuse to attend, I'm gonna have to find a replacement. Girls, the waiting list.
Serena: Well, uh, I should get going. Bye.
Saturday, 13 August 2011
GossipGirl: With Blair's boyfriend, Nate, helping to close up the family yacht for the season, Blair is free to focus on the most important event of the fall - her annual sleepover. A tradition since the year 2000, each one more decadent than the last. No expense or reputation is spared. With everything from the trundle beds to truffles in place, all that's missing is sleepover star and Waldorf B.F.F. Serena Van Der Woodsen.
Friday, 12 August 2011
Next episode: s01e05 - Dare Devil
Dan makes elaborate plans to impress Serena on their first official date. That same night, Jenny is invited to the infamous Blair Waldorf sleepover and finds herself in a high stakes game of "truth or dare." Meanwhile, when Lily discovers that Eric is missing from his treatment center, she finds herself seeking help from her ex-boyfriend, Rufus.
Serena: So you were right.
Blair: I know.
Serena: When I got that call I should have known you had nothing to do with it. And I should never have pushed you to do this whole thing in the first place.
Blair: Actually, I'm glad you pushed me. It ended up being a very important day for me. I just thought it was gonna be more fun.
Serena: I know, me too. Hey, you know what? Who says it still can't be? Come on, come on.
GossipGirl: This just in, S and B committing a crime of fashion. Who doesn't love a five-finger discount? Especially if one of these fingers is the middle one. Everyone knows you can't choose your family. But you can choose your friends. And in a world ruled by bloodlines and bank accounts it pays to have a pal. As much as a B.F.F. can make you go W.T.F., there's no denying we'd all be a little less rich without them. And Serena and Blair... they do besties better than anyone. No, that's not a tear in my eye. It's just allergies. Without you, I'm nothing. GossipGirl.
(We hear "Beautiful Girls - Sean Kingston" )
Thursday, 11 August 2011
Serena: You're still here?
Dan: Yeah, well, I thought I couldn't leave without bringing you something from craft service. Um, and, uh, and telling you that I'm sorry I judged you.
Serena: Mm, well, I'm sorry I gave you reason to. Hey, how about you ask me out again?
Dan: How about you actually show up?
Serena: Okay, no drama, no disruptions. I promise.
Dan: You promise? Oh, no, that means it's never gonna happen now.
Serena: Aah! Okay, quick. I take it back. I unpromise.
Dan: Friday. 8:00.
Blair: I think we can agree to those terms. But you can't wear those shoes. Or that hair.
Serena: Blair. Okay, see you then.
Dan: All right.
Wednesday, 10 August 2011
Blair: Srena send you here to talk to me?
Dan: No, believe it or not, I actually came here myself.
Blair: Normally, I wouldn't be this close to you without a tetanus shot.
Dan: My, uh, my mom kinda left us a couple of months ago... Only my... my dad and my sister don't really see that... 'Cause she told us she had to go away for the summer to, um, to follow her dream of being an artist. But it's... it's not summer anymore and she's still up there, and that's all she seems to care about right now. Every time I go to see her, I tell myself, this time, I'm gonna tell her what I think. This time, I'm gonna look her in the eyes and say "either come home or leave for good". And so there I was, just the other day. I was sitting across the table from her, looking her straight in the eye and I didn't say anything.
Blair: Why not?
Dan: I don't know. But I wish I had, 'cause even if it didn't change anything, she'd know how I felt.
Tuesday, 9 August 2011
Blair: You've got to be kidding me.
Photographer: Fantastic! One, two, three, come on...
Serena: Oh! There she is..Blair! Come on, quick. What took you so long? Hey, Blair. Blair, Blair, wait. Where are you going? Blair, wait. Why are you so mad?
Blair: Why am I mad? You mean, why aren't I furious? I can't believe for one second I thought that it'd be different this time!
Serena: You thought what would be different?
Blair: You couldn't deal with the spotlight shining on me for once, could you?
Serena: What are you talking about? I was told we were doing this together. What, you did not get my message?
Blair: What about this morning then? When you glanced at the call sheet, did you see my name on it? When I wasn't in hair and make-up, didn't that seem strange? When the dressing room only had your name on the door, what, did you think they just forgot?
Serena: I was told you were running late and they asked me to do some test shots first. Blair, they told me you wanted me here.
Blair: And you believed them?
Serena: Look, Blair, I encouraged you to do this. Why would I try to steal something from you that I pushed you to do?
Blair: Because you take everything from me! Nate, my mom!
Blair: You can't help it! It's who you are. I just thought maybe this time it would be different. I should have known I'd be wrong... Great.
GossipGirl: Spotted: Lonely boy's rude awakening. Upper East Side queens aren't born at the top. They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it.
Eleanor: There you are. Terry wanted me to tell you how perfect you looked.. With these now...
Serena: Eleanor, I quit.
Eleanor: Wait a minute, why?
Serena: I think you know why.
Eleanor: Because of Blair? I know that she will support my decision... Once I explain it to her. You know you love the spotlight, you always have. It's part of your charm.. There's nothing wrong with that...
Dan: Hey, I.. I kinda overheard you guys in the stairwell there.
Serena: Dan, look, I really can't go here right now.
Dan: Okay, well, forget I said anything then. In fact, you know what? I'm mute. I'll just stand here and blink real quiet. Unless you want me to...
Serena: Hand my jeans? Yes, please.
Dan: It's just, uh, I thought you wanted to be on the sidelines here. I thought you wanted to be here for your friend Blair. You know, we were gonna get craft service, and I'd have your "full attention"?
Serena: Say it.
Dan: I don't think I have to.
Serena: So my best friend doesn't believe me and neither does the guy I like. Look, Dan, Blair's mom basically tricked me into coming here because she didn't want Blair. How do you tell your best friend something like that?
Dan: Oh, I.. I didn't.. I guess I didn't..
Serena: Look, you know what, Dan? Just go, okay? I need to clean up and I just need to get out of here.
Serena: How was the movie? Did I miss something amazing?
Dan: Well... well, uh, even without the movie.
Serena: Don't be cocky. I'm calling you with a make-up plan.
Dan: Oh, are you now?
Serena: I am. How would you like to see what really happens at a fashion shoot?
Dan: I'm sorry... This is Dan Humphrey. Are you sure you're not trying to reach my sister?
Serena: Look, I know it's a girlie offer, but chew on this... I'll be there.
Dan: Can I bet on that? Because law of averages says I lose my shirt.
Serena: Oh, come on. It's Blair's shoot, so I have to be there for moral support.
Dan: Blair? Well, I'm definitely not going now.
Serena: Look, she's really not as bad as you think. Besides, she's gonna be so busy with the shoot that you won't even have to see her. And since she's so boring on the sidelines, you'll have my full attention. Okay, what if I buy you anything you want from craft service?
Dan: I thought craft service was free.
Serena: I'll see you in the morning at 8:00. I'm texting you the address. I'm hanging up before thou dost protest again.
Dan: Both feet, Humphrey.

Dan: Hey, you almost here?
Serena: Hey, I'm really, really, sorry, but I'm kind of stuck at this photoshoot with Blair. It's a long story, but I don't think I'm gonna be able to make it.
Dan: Oh, a photoshoot, huh?
Serena: It sounds really superficial, I know. But it's important to her and, you know, she's important to me. But I'll make it up to you, though, I promise.
Dan: No, it's no big deal, really. Don't worry about it.
Serena: You're the best. I knew you'd understand. I'll call you later.
Dan: Yeah, yeah.
Cashier: How many?
Dan: Uh... none...
Serena: Hey! First of all you look amazing!
Blair: I know.
Serena: But look, can I give you a little tip?
Blair: How did I know this was coming?
Serena: No, no, look, all you need to do is maybe you could, uh, loosen up a little, you know? Shake it out! Um, maybe you could be goofy, like when we were 10. And we would dance around to "Genie in a bottle" in your mom's clothes.
Blair: Help me. Help me.
Serena: Um, okay. Uh... Act like a tiger, okay? Come on. Rawr!
Serena: No, no, you gotta roar. Rawr!
Serena: Yeah, yeah, yeah! Give me more tiger! Give me more tiger! You're in that jungle.
Serena: You're a savage! Now let's do a prettier one this time, okay? You're Venus in the half shell, right? So just look up..
Serena: Let's do something crazy like Britney with the umbrella. Okay, Britney with the umbrella, go!
Blair: Rawr! Aah!
Serena: At the car! At the car!
Serena: Posh spice in America. Ready? Go! That's "cyborg spice" to you. Okay, you gotta pout more and strike.Remember, I taught you the hand on the hip. Strike it and pop. Come on, give me more, give me more, you sexy beast. Oh, it looks so good! You're doing so good! You got it! Look how good you are! Pout, pout, pout.
Blair: What are you doing?
Serena: Oh, shoot. I gotta go meet Dan.
Blair: No, you're staying here. I need you. I can't let my mother down.

GossipGirl: Is that a smile we see on B's lips? The spotlight is on her face for once and actually S helped her get it. I guess miracles can happen.
Serena: It's gonna be so hot. The clothes are gorgeous.
Blair: They're all right.
Serena: Oh, shut up. They're amazing.
Blair: I'm just doing my mom a favour. The hair and make-up test is tonight.
Katie: I think this is my best pose.
Isabel: That's because you can't see what you look like. You're just a hand model and that's it. The right way is this.
Blair: Mmm.. mmm.. mmm.. mmm. Girls, no. This is how you do it. No, no, no. You gotta curve your spine forward, elongate...
Serena: Oh, no. You guys are doing it all wrong. Look you're missing the key.
Blair: Show us.
Serena: Look, look, look. You gotta put the hand on the hip and pop. That's how you gotta do it.
Blair: Pop, pop!

Blair: Oh, God, I forgot what it was like to be with you.
Serena: No, they were looking at both of us.
Blair: Don't insult me. It's been like this all morning, starting with your lovely visit with my mother. She didn't even call me to tell me she was coming home.
Serena: Well, she was busy. She was rushing to get home and everything because she wanted to see you.
Blair: She didn't even wake me up.
Serena: Well, you know how Eleanor feels about beauty rest.
Blair: She likes you more than me.
Serena: She does not. You are her daughter. She doesn't like anyone more than you. She just... I don't know, doesn't know how to show it sometimes.
Blair: Okay, I'm going inside. Wait for me. I'll be right back.

Bad News Blair - S01E04: Blair is thrilled when her mother, Eleanor, chooses her to be the new face of her clothing line.

Elsewhere, Rufus bonds with an attractive art collector, named Bex, whom is interested in his latest painting at the Bedford Avenue Art Gallery where he works...
