Quotes

Chuck: They say when you love something you should set it free...
Blair: They say when you hate something you should slam a door in its face!
Chuck: I love it when you talk dirty, Blair
(Blair slams door and secretly smiles)


Chuck: Let's take it slow this time. Do it right.
Blair: Chuck Bass is a romantic...! who knew?
Chuck: Now you do, and it's all what it matters.

Chuck: You don't belong to Nate. Never have, never will.
Blair: You never belong to anyone.

Georgina: I never meant to get in between you two. I swear.
Dan: Please, it's okay.
Georgina: No, it's not. Because now she's upset.
Serena: Yeah I am...! You manipulative, psycho !@#!@! You have been planning this this whole time!

Blair: Isn't there someone else you can torture?
Chuck: Yes, but I choose you

Blair: Well, I'm aware I lack some people's easy grace with strangers. I don't exactly make you feel like you've known me forever even though we just met. When I laugh, you might not smile just at the coquettish sound of it, and I may not be spontaneous or delightful or full of surprises, and my hair not sparkle when it catches the light (pause) everything worth knowing about me is in that folder! I made sure of it!

Chuck: For what it's worth, Humphrey, you had my back. Never thought I'd say this, but thanks.

Gossip Girl: Spotted: Dan Humphrey, shoeless and clueless. That's all.

Dan: wow. Someone love Chuck Bass

Blair: 3 words, 8 letters, say it and i'm yours

Dan: So he just got up and left, abruptly?
Blair: Like a Bass out of hell.

Agent: You girls have been getting a lot of press. You've got talent. Who's the designer?
Jenny: It's me.
Agnes: And I'm the face of the line, and brains of the operation.

Agent: Who do you imagine your client will be?
Agnes: Girls like us-
Jenny: Sophisticated girls with a bit of edge, and who can afford a high-end product. I know these girls and their style because I'm their peer, and that's what makes me unique as a designer.

Jenny: And yet another one bites the bust, Agnes. What is the matter with you?! This guy was our last chance!!!!
Agnes: Okay he totally overreacted! We're artists! We need to work with somebody who's not gonna be freaked out by a little bit of passion.
Jenny: Passion. You know the heat from the fashion show's not gonna last that long ...
Agnes: Jenny, I will find us another business manager tomorrow.
Jenny: Good, because without one we can't meet with any buyers.
Agnes: It's all gonna work out, okay? I'm on it.

Emma: They call him the de-virginator!
Blair: Oh my God! stop your mouth
from moving...!
Emma: But now that I finally have the night away from my mom and dad, we'll see who's first. We're saying TTFN to my you know what!
Blair: Or maybe we'll see how your mom feels about your little clearance sale, little Lohan.

Emma: But you're perfect!
Blair: True.

Dan: Seeing you the other night was very nice. I know the first leg of the Dan-Serena let's be friends tour was a disaster, but...
Serena: Well, we were young and stupid then. Now we're older and wiser....
Blair (suddenly appears - to serena): You have to help me destroy Chuck Bass!
Dan: I'll take that as my cue to leave.
Blair: Aww!... you're very understanding!

Serena: I hate that stupid headband.
(pulls Blair's headband)
Blair: Ow! My Headband!

“And how do you plan to introduce him? 'Mom, you DVR Big Love. This is Aaron, and he's just like Bill Paxton, only younger and with scruff.'” – Blair

”When I was 13, I find the most amazing surveillance photos of Gina, my hot Italian au pair. Those photos and Gina changed my life.” – Chuck

”This is the worst Thanksgiving of all time, and if we have to wander the Upper East Side like outcasts in a Jane Austen novel, so be it.” – Blair

Blair: I thought I made it clear that we need to find Chuck the perfect date. Kristen Curren is the loosest girl in our class. Don't you know that Chuck doesn't like his fruit pre-picked?


Dorota: She has long hair. In Poland, long hair symbolizes—

Blair: And Elizabeth Phillips is somewhere between Mormon and moron! How did you come up with these?

Dorota: Facebook. I joined few groups.

Blair: This has to be Chuck's dream girl. Intelligent, but not a bookworm. Strong-willed but still feminine. An equal. And he likes brunettes and deep brown eyes.

Dorota: But Miss Blair, that girl is you.

Blair: No, that girl is out there. And you better hope for your sake that I find her.

Dorota: Please, I don't want to shine Mr. Chuck's shoes for month.

Blair: Yeah, his shoes, if you're lucky.

Dorota: What?

Blair: Nothing. Now get back to work. Tick-tock, tick-tock!!!!

"I'm not maternal! I've just been spending too much time with Cyrus and I'm turning Jewish." - Blair



Eleanor: "I thought you were supportive of this union?"

Blair: "I am, as something that happens in a vague, far off future that never really lands on me because I'll be away at college. Not as what I'm doing tomorrow at seven o'clock."

Blair: Yeah, I had sex with him in the back of a limo.
Chuck: Several times.
Nate: I had sex with you at a wedding while I was her date. Once.
Chuck: I'm Chuck Bass.
Blair: You can tell us anything. We don't judge. We're the non-judging breakfast club.
