That's like the only questionable or loopy thing GG says in the whole episode. I think being under attack makes her focus up something dreadful.
Nate: "Can someone please explain to me what's going on here? I mean, are you two working together? Have you been working together this whole time?"
Wm. & Diana: "Uh, no! This is a dream! Go back to bed!"
Nate: "That hasn't worked since I was 17!"
Diana: "Fine. I... Called Granderbilt to invest in the company after ... they threatened my job?"
William: "Yeah, yeah. And then I said maybe, but... We are good liars."
Nate: "Okay, but what about the Gossip Girl thing?"
Diana: "I have no idea who actually did that, because it's a separate boring storyline, but whatever makes my exit easier."
She abruptly packs up her shit and quits before William can even say the part about how Nate, who is literally a child without even a whiff of a college degree, is now Editor in Chief of this supposed media supergiant.
Max, verbatim: "Come on, Ivy. Tell me the truth. Why does that woman think that she is your aunt? Why does she think that you are the nice young woman who played the Queen of Hearts in our local production of Alice In Wonderland? Yeah, I found this in a box of your things!"
I don't know why that is so funny to me. "Why does that woman think that she is your aunt? Why does she think that you are the nice young woman who played the Queen of Hearts in our local production of Alice In Wonderland? Yeah, I found this in a box of your things!" It's just so amazing. I tried to pick out the most amazing parts, but it's really a gestalt of everything there. Each and every word is essential to the whole. Everything weird about the show now, in one hilarious speech.
Ivy: "Look, I told you I'd get you the fifty grand. I still can, and then we can go away together."
More Amazing Max Talk: "Ivy, everything you say is a lie. But the money is real."
She gives him the diamond ring and tells him to scamper. It's the weirdest thing, it's like she's forcing him somehow to blackmail her, with this hysterical catgut voice: "Just LEAVE ME AND MY FAMILY ALONE, my boyfriend I keep planning to run away with, AND STOP HARASSING ME AND MY FAMILY, and okay I still love you, and DON'T MAKE ME CALL THE COPS BECAUSE I TOTALLY WILL, so now come kiss me on the mouth," and then he's all, "Fine, you sketchy broad. I'll 'make myself scarce.' Now go have fun with your 'family.'"
