    • Blair: I wanted a Harry Winston choker for my birthday, instead I got a conscience.

    • Blair: Oh my God! You outmaneuvered me. You deliberately let me win, counting on the fact that Cyndi Lauper would prey on my emotions. Cyrus: I'm a lawyer. I do think a few moves ahead. Some of us can't rely entirely on our looks, you know. Blair: Well done. Cyrus: Not enough! Blair: Fine, you're a genius!
