  • Quotes

    • Blair: Gossip Girl can be right about you all she wants. But I won't let her be right about me, I will not be weak any more. You can't run. You have to stay here, and hear it this time. Chuck Bass, I love you. I love you soo much, it consumes me. I love you. And I know you love me too. Tell me you love me, and everything we've done, all the gossip, and the lies, and the hurt, will have been for something. Tell me it was for something.

    • Blair: I want to talk.
      Chuck: I prefer to talk after.

    • Blair: Why aren't you in Europe?
      Chuck: I was in Paris, only to get your favorite macaroons from Pierre Hermé...

    • Chuck: I love you too
      (Blair smiles and they kiss)
      Blair: But, can you say it twice?
      (They laugh)
      Chuck: I love you, I love you, here's three, four, I love you...

    • Gossip Girl: Not so fast. You're not graduating until I give you my diplomas. Mine are labels, and labels stick. Nate Archibald: Class whore. Dan Humphrey: The ultimate insider. Chuck Bass: Coward. Blair Waldorf: Weakling. And as for Serena van der Woodsen, after today, you are officially irrelevant. Congratulations, everyone. You deserve it.

    • Rufus: What's in the bag?
      Lily: Something I found in Chuck's room
      Rufus: Well then I bet it's good.

    • Serena: Does he even know that you and Nate broke up?
      Blair: Have you not told him?
      Serena: It's not like we stay up at night, braiding each other's hair and having heart-to-hearts.

    • Blair: I wanna believe you, but I can't. You've hurt too many times.
      Chuck: Believe me this time.
      Blair: Oh, that's it?
      (both smiles)
      Chuck: I love you, too.

    • Jenny: (to Eric) This graduation is a celebration for us, too. No more mean girls! We have suffered under their dictatorship for way too long. Starting next fall, there will be peace in the kingdom.

    • Eleanor: Are you dressing for someone?
      Blair: Yes, someone I hope is finally ready to love me the way Cyrus loves you...

    • Serena: You were right, B. Nobody can take this day away from us. Gossip Girl is going down.

    • Vanessa: It's like getting a smile from the president.

    • Serena: The end of high school means the end of me on Gossip Girl.

    • Dan: I know it sounds crazy, but, actually, I kind of miss high school. I miss Blair Waldorf and her daily ego demolitions, Nelly Yuki stealing my lunch, even Chuck Bass who would get so close to talk.
