Jenny stands in front of the mirror at home with Dan, all, "We are variously going to Lincoln Hawk with Serena, or getting raped at Kiss On The Lips! We are so cool now!" She doesn't look very cool when she says it, but that's nothing quite as uncool as when Rufus sliiiides on into the picture all, "Oh, my God, my daughter's a woman!" and then tells her how much she looks like her mother. I'm so done with this scene. Jenny's so cute and it's really neat to watch all these different people tell her how pretty she is, because she gets to do the lip-biting ankle-dip of awkwardness every time, and that is a thing for which I am a sucker.
So here's another one just like it where Eleanor is clawing her way up Blair's ass for no real good reason, all, "Try on this dress! Try on this other dress! Take off the dress you like and wear a dress you don't like! It is a more elegant choice! I love you! You will never be more beautiful or thin or happy than you are right now! But you are also fat and ugly! Take advantage of this time by enjoying yourself! But also put some product in your hair! The ends are dry!" Blair comes down with yet another case of wry bulimia, and then there's a big montage of people going to the dance or not going to the dance, depending on if they are Dan and Serena or other people. This equals drunken drug use and drinking and lots of gowns in the limo, and Blair and Nate looking effed over, by and large. At the Palance, Dan is wearing a Tom Baker scarf that is eighteen miles long, staring up at Serena all dewy, and being nervous.
