Who are we kidding. Okay, meanwhile Rufus and Lily are making out in the middle of the living room while Jenny and Eric watch, aghast. Rufus says "The only thing that matters is I'm not losing you. To cancer, to Will, or anything else." Which is... There is something very Rufus, and very gross, about that sentence but I can't figure out what it is. Jenny throws down and points out that their relationship is totally fucked up at all times, and she was about to run off to Palm Beach and they trust each other zero. Rufus says most of that is Jenny's fault, which it is, and none of it is Jenny's business, which it is not. Another awesome line: "When we lived in Brooklyn I might have had to take the subway to school and make my own clothes, but at least our family was happy."
Rufus and Lily are just sort of bored by what a constant little shit she is, and they go upstairs to fuck, and meanwhile Eric's like, "If you don't want to be a part of this family, no one is forcing you to stay." Which I get what he is saying, which is that they all -- Lily, Serena, Eric, Rufus, Dan, Chuck -- have decided to be a family, PRADA family, and her idea of being the DUMBO family -- Rufus, Jenny, Dan, Vanessa -- is outmoded and doesn't even exist. She's running away toward something that can't ever exist, and doesn't mind stepping on toes or murdering her stepmother to do it. Which yeah, why don't you run away for like the 50th time this year? In fact, what's the most fucked-up place you could go? Not Brooklyn, where you have a home to go to and you were just whinging about that. No, acting normal wouldn't cut it. I think a better option would be your brother that always tries to rape you, you could try his house.
Chuck makes fun of Blair for still going on her Cameron date, and then I don't want to talk about it because it's so fucking stupid, but basically she said they were only hanging out, just like every episode, because of the scheme or party for that episode, but now they can go back to not being around each other because, as Holland explained, they don't feel "safe" with each other. Yeah, whoring each other out, literally, can have that effect. And then -- this is so egregious -- Chuck says these words:
"I did the most dangerous thing I could when I said I love you, and it was worth it. If I got through my fear for you, you can get through yours for me. You have until tomorrow to decide. We're never going to be safe. So are you brave enough, or aren't you? I'll be waiting at the top of the Empire State Building. If you're not there tomorrow, at 7:01 I'm closing my heart to you forever."
