  • Quotes

    • 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.

    • Nate: You're really sweet with him.
      Blair: Me? Sweet? No!
      Nate: But you are. I mean worrying about him, offering him food, it's downright maternal.
      Blair: I'm not maternal. I've just been spending too much time with Cyrus and I'm turning Jewish.

    • Nate: You don't even have to stay that long. You should let people shake your hand, say hello and you're done.
      Chuck: You don't have to convince me.
      Blair: Oh, good. Well, I just thought that after what happened at the church, you may not wanna be here.
      Chuck: This is exactly where I wanna be. I have business to attend to.
      Blair: OK, that's fine. But let's just find you some quite corner and get's some food in your stomach.
      Chuck: I'm not in a mood for food.

    • Cyrus: I just hope you know how happy I am, not just to be with your mother, but to have you, family! I love you, very, very much.
      Blair (cries): I told Chuck I love him.
      Cyrus: Really? That's wonderful.
      Blair: No, it's not. It's horrible. I thought that if I could finally say it that everything would change, but he is just as selfish and solace as ever. Only a masochist could ever love such a narcissist. Help me. (hugs Cyrus)
      Cyrus: You don't need help. He just needs time.
      Blair: Wait, (hugs him again) not enough.

    • Blair: Chuck! Stop! Don't go, or if you have to leave, let me come with you.
      Chuck: I appreciate your concern.
      Blair: No, you don't. You don't appreciate anything today, but I don't care. Whatever you are going through, I want to be there for you.
      Chuck: We have talked about this. You are not my girlfriend.
      Blair: But I am me, and you are you. We're Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck. The worst thing you've ever done, the darkest thought you've ever had, I will stand by you through anything.
      Chuck: Why would you do that?
      Blair: Because I love you.
      Chuck: Well, that's too bad.
      Gossip Girl: (voiceover) Spotted: Chuck Bass leaving his father's funeral, and Blair Waldorf shedding tears for the dearly departed.

    • Cyrus: That sermon was surprisingly thought provoking. That stuff about life and death and our time on earth being so fleeting.
      Eleanor: Darling its a funeral. What was he supposed to talk about, the stock market?
