"I thought you said it wasn't a date," Rufus notes, justifiably proud of himself for doing a parent thing that parents do, and Jenny kind of violently shakes all over because he's got in her a cage, so she screeches and runs off to slam the bedroom door behind her. And if this show was really hardcore, they would have celebrated the arrival of Georgina Sparks with a tiny scene of her throwing Dan out of her room by screaming, "GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT!" But maybe that's too on the nose or whatever, so instead there's a wonderful two-second bit where Dan and Rufus, shattered by her amazing screaming, stare blankly and then poor tired Rufus goes, "...It was nice there for a minute," and Dan smiles to himself. "Yeah, It was."
Remember that Blair has no idea about any of Serena's stuff right now: every lie and omission S hands Dan, she must have been working doubletime to fool B, who can smell fear like dogs and bees. Which, even more than the Dan stuff, strikes fear of G into my heart, because he's just Serena's boyfriend, while Blair is her sister. So the singsong mean-girl tones with which Blair graces S's voicemail tell us two things at least: "Hey, S. I'm just sipping a gingko biloba blended smoothie and wondering how your stomach-migraine is. Call me so I don't worry." She looks over at Nelly Yuki, who is facedown in a massage chair: "How you doing, Nelly Yuki?" Nelly Yuki moans that, apparently, her upper trapezius "seems to hold a lot of sadness," and Blair gives a great fake awww before assuring Nelly Yuki that she'll be better soon. Nelly Yuki tries to leave, to go home and study for the SATs, but one fierce look from B and the masseuse shoves her head back down with astounding force.
