Chuck fills James's glass at CeCe's table, and asks if he's met Harold Waldorf -- then slips a second bonus question inside the question, which is whether he knows Roman's name. Answers: Yes and yes. "Only briefly, at the château. Although Cat didn't seem to like me nearly as much. I have the scars to prove it." CeCe laughs, because when you're old, nature attacking people is funny. Chuck notes that they've certainly crammed a lot of BS into their fake romance: "I wonder, has Blair had a chance to share her favorite movies with you yet? Tiffany's, Sitting. Roman Holiday... And of course, Charade?" James is confused, because he doesn't hear the total implicatiness of Chuck's emphasis on that last: isn't her third favorite Funny Face?
(Roman Holiday... I wonder if last year was Breakfast At Tiffany's and this year is Roman Holiday? That would be cool, but also would be sad when Blair goes blind for the suspenseful Wait Until Dark season. But then if there's a Charade year I'll finally get my hail of bullets, which will be good. I'm torn. And wait, does that make Serena's lifeguard Sabrina? Fuck it, I'm confusing myself. Wait, Dan is Sabrina! That's awesome. Serena and Sabrina.)
Blair agrees, sorry, with James -- she hates Charade -- and tells Chuck to stop harassing him. Eric notes how boring it is to watch people play How Well Do You Know Blair Waldorf? if you already know Blair Waldorf; CeCe agrees, and adds that Chuck's also being totally transparent. Nice. "Well thank you, Grandma," he says, and I love that CeCe distrusts him a little bit, even though I equally love how much Lily likes Chuck: "Why is it when you say that word it sounds like an insult?" James gets a little steely, claiming that he wants to learn everything about Blair, and what better way than learn than by taking quizzes, especially those proctored by a stalky creepy tiki-faced rapist?
"Well, it's a shame you guys took a bus and not a limo. I don't know if you know this, but Blair loves a limo..." Oh no he didn't! Blair randomly and awkwardly -- and transparently -- asks James for the salt and pepper, and when James reaches for it, he exposes his sweater sleeve, where she's pinned the little heart charm she once sewed into a shirt of Nate's. (Meaning that the thing she needed to get from Nate was her heart, which she's now wearing on James's sleeve, because this show is awesome and about to get more awesome.) Chuck's stops. She grins again, and he excuses himself. Blair follows right after, provoking awkwardness for James and sympathy/fear in CeCe and Eric.
