Serena van der Woodsen
Daniel "Dan" Humphrey
Lillian "Lily" Bass
When Jenny is at the ice cream shop with Eric and Nelly, her roots are really black but then when you see her later on at Chuck's party, her hair is completely blond.
Serena has a myspace profile, where the photos of her trip to Buenos Aires have been uploaded. Her user name is ServdW.
Blair:I'm not abandoning Chuck, I'm just saving myself.
Jack: Chuck, your father wouldn't want this.
Chuck: Fortunately, all I know is what he didn't want.. which is me.
Gossip Girl: (closing voiceover) Ah me. The year's scarcely turned and already the secrets have begun. Where will it end this time? The new year isn't about what happened, it's about what's to come. But the past is always with us, just waiting to mess with the present. And when it does, I'll be watching. XOXO. Gossip Girl.
Dan: What do you know about my dad and Lily?
Chuck: The cat's out of the bag.
Dan: I found some numbers. My dad was supposed to be going to Boston to look for an artist. He was apparently visiting some orphanages.
Chuck: How Dickensian.
Chuck: (to Dan) That's the problem with an open invitation. Can't keep out the hoi-polloi.
Serena: B. Is everything OK? I came as fast as I could.
Blair: Fine. False alarm.
Serena: Wait. What happened?
Blair: Chuck. He's holed up at Victrola in some Jim Morrison downward spiral. Sad in a way. Luckily it's not my concern.
Blair: Chuck. Stop. All this doesn't help. It isn't you.
Chuck: Wrong. Bart may have been a bastard but he saw me better than anyone. Simply living up to my potential. It's time to let go of your fantasies.
Serena: Hey, did Jack find Chuck?
Blair: Yeah, what was left of him. I'm surprised they made it through customs. Chuck's body odor could have given a contact-high to half of Manhattan.
Gossip Girl: (opening voiceover) Gossip Girl here, welcoming you to the new year, when Manhattenites, who flew south for the sun, return to their Park Avenue perches. Which means I have a lot of catching up to do. Word is, Serena van der Woodsen tangoed in the new year in the plazas of Buenos Aires. Guess that means Lonely Boy was all alone when the clock tolled twelve. And what of Little J? Rumor is she's trading runways for hallways. So long high fashion, hello high school.
Chuck: (shouts) I'm Chuck Bass. (Pause) No one cares.
Blair: I do. Don't you understand? I'll always be here, I don't want you going anywhere, I couldn't bear it. So whatever you wanna do to yourself, please don't do that to me. (reaches to Chuck) Please!
Jack: Chuck! (Chuck loses the balance)
Blair: No! (to Jack) You, idiot! You're not surprise him when standing on the edge of the building.
Blair: Hey, Eric, have you seen Chuck?
Eric: A while ago, he said something about wanting to take a view from above.
Jack: He probably meant upstairs.
Blair: Clearly you don't know Chuck. He has a thing for the roof tops.
Eric: Welcome back! How was Thailand?
Chuck: I honestly don't remember.
Eric: You should come home, Chuck.
Chuck: (grabs a bottle of scotch) I think I'll take in the view from above. It was nice having you as my little brother.
Chuck: Lily and her mother kept it as secret, gave the kid away. I imagine your dad just find out. (pointing at Serena) And now there is one more person to tell. Of course as soon as you do, it's over between you and S. But sharing a sibling it's a bit too much.. even for me.
Serena: (Dan hugs her) Oh, hey. This is my news. When I was in Buenos Aires.. (Blair interrupts Serena)
Blair: A postcard would've been fine. I'm really happy for you. I'm going to go vomit now.
Dan: Happy New Year!
Serena: She just needs time.
Serena: He was probably thinking about you the whole time he was gone.
Blair: Not unless I was a Thai hooker named Bo.
Penelope: The only way Nelly is leaving is in a body bag.
Blair: I have to go. That piece of work - Chuck Bass - needs me. And Serena and her mother are wonderful kind of people.
Lady from the club: Blair, do you know what you're doing?
Blair: I thought I was leaving high school behind. I guess you never do. Dorota will get your coats.
Gossip Girl: Spotted at Victrola, Lonely Boy and Chuck Bass having heart to heart. What or who do they have talk about? And will Serena will be the last to know?
Gossip Girl: One thing about being on the top of the world.. it gives you a long, long way to fall.
Isabel:Blair's leaving us behind, it's like the end of an era.
Blair: The circumstances are most extenuating. Can we forgive it this one time?
Headmistress Queller: (to Chuck) Would you promise me that nothing like this will ever happen again?
Chuck: (pulls a second joint from his pocket and lights it) For you, Headmistress, anything. Everyone, it's been a pleasure.
Gossip Girl: Pop quiz. What do you get when you cross Chuck Bass, a billion dollars and Bart cold in the ground?
Jack: What seems to be the problem?
Headmistress Queller: I found Charles smoking marijuana on school property.
Chuck: Hash actually. I find it gives a softer high.
Jack: Sounds to me like the evidence is questionable.
Chuck: Uncle Jack, what a surprise. How've you been?
Jack: Uh-huh, so I take it you don't remember our rickshaw ride down Selon Road? The fifteen hour flight?
Chuck: ... that was you?
Jack: I get Bart dying has been difficult. But the way things've been handled the last couple weeks, you shut away like Gloria Swanson, my nephew MIA in a Thai bordello, my big brother may not've won parent-of-the-year, but I doubt he'd be too happy.
Lily: Well, you needn't worry yourself anymore. Chuck is my step-son. I'll take care of him.
Jack: WAS your step-son. And as Chuck's last living relative, I have to say -- I don't feel comfortable leaving him in this situation. (Jack blissfully unconcerned) You should eat. People grieving tend to neglect their health.
Jack Bass: Blair, you came to greet us.
Blair: Not you. Chuck. You said you found him.
Jack Bass: In Bangkok. He was staying at our hotel there. You hear the term "den of iniquity", but until you really see one --
Blair: Do you have him or not?
