Quotes from Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl: Welcome back, Upper East Siders. After a long, hot summer away I see it didn't take much time for you to dirty up the clean slates I gave you. My inbox is overflowing, so let's get to the good stuff shall we? potted: Chuck Bass up to his old tricks. Poor B. I guess nothing good lasts forever.
Dan: Our bags are packed, the house is closed up, but the real question remains: now that you've spent your whole summer drinking your coffee out of Cece's china will it taste as good coming out of your Welcome Back Kotter mug at home?
Rufus: Sure it was great out here but I like the real world too.
Blair: Summer was great. We had a lot of fun. Summer's over.
Blair: I can't rule the NYU masses from the Upper East Side. I need to spend time in the dorm to establish myself as queen.
Chuck: It's not Constance, Blair. The only queens are the ones with tickets to see Liza at Carnegie Hall.
Gossip Girl: Morning in New York. Time to wake up from bad dreams, roll out of the beds we've made, and start making plans for a brighter future.
Jenny: Dad, Scott's been spending a lot of time here lately.
Rufus: Yeah he's a good kid. Good guitar player too.
Serena: If you don't trust me then what are we doing?
Carter: I'm not sure.
Chuck: I need you. You're fooling yourself if you don't think you were born to rule this school.
Jenny: People change, Chuck.
Chuck: Not you. Not about this. Jenny Humphrey who used to sit in Brooklyn and watch the lights across the water. Who went toe-to-toe with Blair Waldorf and actually won her respect. You can't tell me that girl's not still in there.
Chuck: I'm Chuck Bass. And I told you I love you. You're saying I'm easier to win over than a bunch of pseudo-intellectual homesick malcontents. You'd really insult me like this?
Chuck: So Bree, you went home last week.
Bree: Yeah. Tried to mend the "I'm dating a van der Bilt" fence. Didn’t work. We're Southern, so family loyalty’s real big down there.
Rufus: Well we can keep asking each other if we can do this. We can keep planning and talking adjusting and talking some more. Or we can just leap. So let's leap. Let's get married.
Lily: We're already getting married, Rufus.
Rufus: I mean soon. I mean tomorrow. We leap.
Olivia: So what are you gonna do this weekend to thank me?
Dan: You know, actually, about that. I was thinking I would invite you to the Parent-Freshman Dinner with me and my parents. I know you're probably exhausted—
Olivia: I would love to.
Dan: So you really think the sight of Olivia in fake fangs reciting stilted dialogue is going to be a deal breaker, don't you?
Nate: Oh the dialogue is awesome. It's the part without the talking that's the problem.
Eric: Oh c'mon. She's still the same Jenny underneath. She just has to wear the mask for school.
Jonathan: That mask is becoming her face.
Dan: Listen, as much as I enjoy my current girlfriend talking to my ex-girlfriend about her fake boyfriend who is also my current girlfriend's ex...
Chuck: Isn't it about time you and Serena made up? You love cotillion. You should be doing it together.
Blair: Jenny, you're lucky to have me. Don't push it.
Jenny: Your era's over. And so is that headband.
Nate: Oh. Dan. Girl problems. You don't even want to know.
Serena: Sounds like you’re everyone's therapist today.
Nate: Yeah well. Affairs with married people. Love triangles. Just so happens everyone's problems are well within my area of expertise.
Olivia: If you just let yourself, you'll see that your feelings for her are real. And you should stop kidding yourself.
Serena: I'm not having an affair with Trip. And since you're going to find out anyway he's leaving his wife. And it's not for me.
Blair: Then what are you exactly? An eighteen-year-old blonde coincidence?
Dorota: I'm not talking with Vanya. Now he not stop calling. And texting. Tweeting. Writing on Wall.
Blair: This whole Scrooge act? You should be at home today. Or laying flowers on your father's grave. I know today is the anniversary of his death.
Chuck: Why don't you take the car and meet me at the hotel later for lunch. We'll have our quiet time then.
Blair: Fine. Pretend like you never get sad.
Serena: You're asking me to be his mistress?
Maureen: It's a time honored political tradition. I'm Jackie. You're Marilyn.
Dan: I dated Serena for over a year. And if you want to make things work you're going to have to be able come up for air. Which is really not her favorite thing to do.
Blair: You are the one Nate has always wanted and could never have. It's like a diet. After years of starvation you can't just let him gorge on sundaes. He'll panic and decide he hates ice cream.
Blair: Chuck called?
Nate: No. I mean yeah, he called. But he was just wanting me to put his phone in his briefcase so he didn't forget it.
Blair: Oh god, I miss that.
Blair: Dating someone who's a horrible liar. It's so much easier.
Rufus: Lil, I think this morning has been a step in the right direction. But I'm not quite in the mood to celebrate any of your former husbands right now.
Chuck: If you are who you say you are, then you won't mind me doing a DNA test, right?
Elizabeth: I should have known you would never let me in. You are your father's son.
Jenny: Dad, the last time I worked for Eleanor it didn't exactly end well, remember?
Rufus: But I also remember that my daughter used to love working in fashion.
Blair: There's something about waking up the morning of a fashion show, the smell of pleats wafting through the city.
Chuck: Victor. Is everything alright?
Victor: Mr. Bass, you need to vacate the premises immediately.
Chuck: I think you've misunderstood. I may have put my mother in charge for the time being but I'm not leaving the hotel.
Victor: Actually, sir. These orders come from her.
Jack: It's an interesting feeling, holding another man's prized possession. You wonder how far he'll go to get it back. If there's anything he wouldn't do.
Chuck: I will do anything.
Jack: Well there is something that caught my eye.
Serena: Everything will be fine, Blair. No matter what, Chuck has you, and he loves you. The Empire's just a hotel.
Blair: You don't understand. The hotel is proof that Bart was wrong about Chuck. It's become who he is.
Gossip Girl: Careful B, don't forget your first rule of battle: beware of Basses bearing gifts.
Zoe: You probably don't remember us. But we met at your mom's fashion show.
Blair: Yeah, of course. Hair Band Girl. I never forget a good accessory.
Eric: Please stop acting like you and I have any kind of relationship.
Will: You're right, I have a lot to make up for.
Eric: I'm sorry. The window for that closed somewhere between my twelfth birthday and my suicide attempt. Don't worry, I'm fine now. Going through all that without a father made me realize that I don't need one.
Chuck: Lily's pills are ivermectin. They're great at battling parasites and African River Blindness. But lymphoma, not so much.
Lily: Rufus, you of all people could understand why I might have a doubt. You didn't talk to me for weeks after you found that letter from William.
Rufus: Lily, maybe you would do that, but I wouldn't. And I didn't. When you're ready to hear that and talk about it, give me a call.
Rufus: I didn't cheat on you, Lil. I would never cheat on you.
Eric: So she's not sick? I just want to be clear.
Rufus: She's not sick anymore. He's been lying since he got to New York. To all of us.
Eric: Do you think he's even coming back?
Serena: Yes, of course he is. You heard what he said. I'm sorry, Mom. I don't want you to be sick. But Dad is not lying to us.
Dorota: Blair loves the Empire State Building even though she doesn't want to and she should just admit it and make all our life easier.
Serena: I feel terrible about Nate.
Dan: Oh god. I know. I know— Which part, exactly? Was it the kissing me part or the him finding out part? Or wait, was it the part were he asked us if we had feelings for one another.
