Serena has neat bronze nail polish, bad ideas and a canary feather sticking out of her mouth. I guess because the blast was a little bitchy so she feels like a secret bad-ass. Or maybe it's because she used a computer correctly for the first and last time in her entire life.
Lola: "Man, where is that sketchy guy who offered to be my older friend?"
She sees him escorting Ivy into the building, and ducks behind a bellhop's rack to overhear...
Ivy: "...So thank you for your shady help with Lily and the Rhodes Women..."
Wm vdW: "Just give me a check. Of money."
Ivy: "...And I will write you that check when Serena and Lily show up at my house. Not a second before."
Lola, stealing away: "That girl is just nonstop schemes all the time."
It makes me miss Juliet, because at least Juliet was actually scheming her nonstop schemes nonstop. With Ivy, it's like this slapstick thing where even just the simple act of mailing a letter, or taking a yoga class, will somehow turn into her putting a hit on a Congressman or selling babies on the black market.
Chuck looks, I'll say it, beautiful. Fantastic all episode.
Jack: "Man, are you on the phone with Nate like always? Is he telling you that he's in gay love with you?"
Chuck: "That donkey's out of the barn, if you know what I mean. Hey, while we're on the subject, remember how you 'went to Eton'?"
Jack, winking: "Yeah, it's an enduring part of the myth of American exceptionalism that only Englishmen experiment with their bodies in that way, despite the universal fact that human sexuality is a moving target. When in Rome, as they say. And uh, it was awesome, as you are yourself well aware."
Chuck: "This conversation is complex. But no, I wasn't talking about that, I was talking about the fact that you spent time in the UK during the '80s, which means you can't donate blood in the US."
Jack: "They don't screen blood donations anymore, silly!"
Chuck: "Uh, okay. Only they do, which I know because I own a hospital wing."
Jack: "You couldn't just buy me a zoo? Like in that awesome movie We Bought A Zoo?"
Lola: "This is tacky, but can I ask you a Rich People question?"
Nate: "Yes, Vanessa, but for future notice we just call them 'questions.'"
Lola: "Why would Ivy be offering William money?"
Nate: "He's the executor of an estate for which she is the beneficiary, which apparently means she's not allowed to pay him for any service or good, ever again."
Lola: "Even when I think I'm out, I'm in."
Nate: "See but what you don't know is that man, your father, is also a super sketch con-man just like Ivy. He once brainwashed a psychologist into seducing Rufus, so that she could infect Lily with fake cancer, which somehow ended up giving CeCe real cancer. He is bad news!"
Lola: "That seems unlikely."
Nate: "Well, maybe I got some deets wrong. I remember there was this scarf..."
Lola: "Look, one of us should probably tell Serena about this. And it ain't gonna be me, because then she'll want to talk to me more, and I can't be having that."
