I miss Carter Baizen so much, you guys. He is my soul candy; I want to watch him watch the wave. I am Santorini and What Happened is: The boat he stole, it is my heart.
Nate: "For someone who seems even more oblivious than you, I gotta say last year really got to me. There was my dad, Juliet, Raina... You randomly started jerking me around for no reason again..."
Serena: "Yeah, I was on a tear."
Nate: "...So I just think maybe I should do some thinking. But I don't know what that's like."
Serena: "I am on the same page as you, usually, but this time I have discovered the key and it is this. We are in Hollywood, where everybody does it."
ibid., verbatim: "Look at me. I have gone from It Girl to Working Girl in just 3000 miles!"
Nate: "I don't even see the double entendre there."
Serena: "Frankly, I don't think I do either."
Nate: "So you're saying we should go to this party tonight at an unnamed woman's house -- who will be played by Elizabeth Hurley but is named if you can believe this Diana Payne -- and I'll pretend to be someone else?"
Serena: "What do you say?"
Eleanor: "Why are you dressed like you're going to the UN with the Grimaldis?"
Dorota: "She's fucking with Louis's brain again."
Blair: "And if I don't get to go to this boring shit, he can just marry his mother during sweeps instead of me. God knows they'd both love that."
Eleanor: "Sometimes I feel like the Lord Marcus/Lady Catherine thing permanently fucked you up."
Blair: "Ya think?"
Eleanor: "Look, this is nuts. Testing a good man who loves you never ends well. Sometimes you turn them gay. Sometimes the answer to the What Are You Gay test is Yes."
Blair: "In that spirit I shall declare myself. I am a Waldorf Woman. I need to know I still have a voice, and that that voice is heard. Peace out."
Eleanor: "I often wonder why Blair is the way she is."
Dorota: Wordless and yet still risibly over-the-top eyeroll. Slapsticky Dorota is the very worst kind. Why are all Sookie St. Jameses so much prettier and cooler than their material? Why can't I stop hating her?
