Blair: (Acting insane about the interviewer for the Rome program, but in a recognizably Blair way. Abusing Dorota, screaming about bone china, the usual.)
Dan: "See, I think it's just a formality to make sure neither of us are crazy?"
Blair, acting crazy: "And?"

She's distracted by a 911 text from Serena about the many ways in which things at the Empire have gotten untenable, so she runs out of there with some obvious lies -- about how she needs to get gelato because of how it's Rome -- and one very important truth: Nobody likes pistachios.
