Chuck: "First I need to talk more about the whole Blair thing."
Nate: "I am here for you, dude. Let me just get out of this tight shirt and into more of a jockstrap situation."
Chuck: "I'm not right for her. We bring out the dark side in each other. When she's with Louis, she shines. That's the Blair I love. If she needs to be with him to be it, then that's the way it should be."
Nate: "Seems like that could've been her call, though."
Chuck: "Our relationship was always about two equals trying to get control of each other, even though we were evenly matched. Take one of us out, the whole thing falls apart. It's not about telling her what to do, it's about taking down one side of the pyramid so it has no foundation."
Nate: "Wait, so there's no victim in this story?"
Chuck: "Stories about victims aren't worth telling. But either way, that's not what this is."
SHARED BATHROOM, CHEZ WALDORF
Blair, who can't wait for Monaco: "Strolling in the Jardin Exotique, catching the exhibits at Villa Paloma..."
Serena: "While I lay on the beach in Montecito, off the radar, learning to surf, strolling through the farmers' market, while CeCe with a teacup of gin in hand harasses the help... Being alone is just what I need. No boys, no bars, just a bottle of sunblock and a dozen of the best beach reads."
Serena, you see: "Needed to make a choice. And I choose me."
Serena's Choices Right Now: Include possibly her most bizarre outfit of the season.
Blair, regarding the wedding: "We're thinking November."
Serena, hilariously: "Well, that doesn't give me nearly enough time to find a dress to outshine yours. And you know I'll be wearing white, of course..."
Jill Zarin: Is awful.
Blair: "What are you talking about? I already told Louis' seamstresses to make you a Maid of Honor dress from the brightest fuchsia they could find!"
Pregnancy Test: "Somebody is pregnant! I hope it's Eleanor."
Fandom: "There are so many ways to go crazy right now I almost feel like we should just calm down and drink some tea and wait to see what happens in the fall. JUST KIDDING!"
