    • Blair: Chuck, am I going to have to stick my finger down your throat? It'll help hold back your hair. (Nate stares at her) What? Nate: No sorry, Blair. You had me and then you lost me.

    • Blair: Maybe I underestimate his emotional bond with Kim and Kristy from room-service. God, I just think that at the time like this he should be with someone who cares about him. Eleanor: That is exactly why we are getting married to that we can always be around to care about each other. Cyrus: It's true.

    • Eleanor: How is Charles holding up? Blair: Who knows? He's not returning any of my calls or texts, but the hotel says that they keep sending up food, so there something alive in that room.

    • Eric: I mean. We know that's gin in your coffee cup. Cece: My point exactly - life must go on, as it always has.

    • Gossip Girl: More towers than Trump, more bucks than Bloomberg. Bart Bass definitely made his mark on Manhattan. The passing of a public figure can shake a whole town. But the real story is always the one happening in private, away from the headlines, at home.
