Serena van der Woodsen
Lillian "Lily" van der Woodsen
The Dapper Clerk
This is the first episode that shows a Gossip girl's post at the beginning. This one reads:
"Macking in the Meat Packing
Spotted: S. and Lonely Boy, macking in the Meat Packing. Opposites do attract, but for how long?
XOXO Gossip Girl"
First episode that does not end with a comment from Gossip Girl.
The number of the hotel room Serena is staying in is 1510.
Nate, Blair, and Dan all mistake Jenny for Serena after Serena lends her some of her clothes and her mask.
The picture of Serena for her ad on the Gossip Girl site was from the second episode 'The Wild Brunch' when Blair and Nate had come into the hotel room Serena was in.
Chuck: Mysterious financial transactions. Warring parents. Welcome to the Upper East Side.
Rufus: There you are.
Lily: I just needed a moment with what just happened.
Rufus: The kiss?
Lily: Yeah. I mean I feel a little...
Rufus: Right. Ummmm. Ouch.
Lily: No. I... I'm kidding. Kind of. I'm sorry, Rufus. I... I... Maybe I shouldn't have asked you here.
Rufus: Right, ummm... and ummm I'm sorry I kissed you, but I did it because that mercenary in the starched white shirt... he doesn't appreciate everything you have over an attractive 25 year old mannequin, because beauty fades but yours has done a remarkable job of holding on. And in the long run it's going to be his loss, and I thought he should know how it feels to lose you. Because trust me, it's not fun.
Vanessa: The Pacifier played for like a year.
Dan: And they said Vin Diesel couldn't do comedy.
Dan: Vanessa, wait! Why don't you wait... because you're not Vanessa. Sorry. Case of mistaken identity; ironically, not involving masks.
Jenny: Let's play a game.
Chuck: I'd say strip poker. But I don't have any cards.
Rufus: Since when were you the patron saint of former rock stars?
Lily: Since when were you a rock star?
Rufus: I thought he should know how it feels to lose you. 'Cause, trust me, it's not fun.
Blair: (on her answering machine) Hey, it's Blair. I'm sorry I can't come to the phone right now, but I'm getting ready for the masked ball. See you tonight, if you recognize me, which you won't.
Nate (talking to Jenny thinking she's Serena): Serena, don't say anything. Just let me explain. I'm trying to do the right thing, but it's killing me. I know we both care about Blair, but the best thing to do to is tell the truth. I'm not over you. I though I could fight it, but I can't. If you don't stop me, I'm gonna kiss you (he does and Jenny pushes him then runs away).
Serena: Hey, um, you know I hear the Ice Capades are coming to town.
Dan: Hmm...if you're there, so am I.
Dan: Let me just say. For the record. I like you. Only you.
Serena: Well, that's good because I feel the same about you.
Dan: Glad that's cleared up.
Nate: Chuck, I'll see you later.
Blair: (stops him) Uh uh. No, you didn't find me by midnight. No happily ever after for you.
Nate: Blair, I'm sorry.
Blair: (sighs) All I wanted was for us to start over...and you didn't even try.
Chuck: Little Jenny Humphrey manages to get my pants off and have me not enjoy it. Quite the accomplishment.
Blair: Good thing someone else in the party was as lecherous as you or you'll still be up on that roof...and no I don't want to know what you had to do to get that tux.
Jenny: Everything okay?
Serena: I'm not sure. Dan surprised me by showing up here.
Jenny: Well, go Dan!
Serena: Yeah, except then he threw me through a loop by chasing after some girl named Vanessa.
Jenny: No, V's Dan's best friend.
Serena: Oh, they seemed a little more than that. They kinda have a history, don't they?
Jenny: Sure. But, I mean, Dan's never liked a girl as he likes you. Really, I mean, come on! He's at a masked ball! And I think he'd go basically anywhere with you. Except for maybe in the Ice Capades because that really freaked him out when he was five.
Vanessa: You said you love me.
Dan: Loved you. In the past, in the pre-shaving sixteen-year-old kind of way. You know, things have changed.
Dan: Really? You're not into, uh, Pompous Ass IV?
Serena: You're saying you're not into your old friend, Vanessa?
Dan: (takes her mask off) That is exactly what I'm saying. (and they kiss)
Dan: Serena, hey.
Serena: What are you really doing here, Dan?
Dan: What am I doing here? I ran across the city, I rent a tuxedo, I stole this mask from some drunken kid only to look like Robin, I conned my way in here all to see you. I care.
Serena: Well, you didn't seem to care this morning when you were with another girl and lied about it.
Serena: (to her date) Yeah, um, if you would excuse me. I think I'm gonna go--
Dan: (appearing beside her) Change partners? Hey.
Serena: Dan? What are you doing here?
Dan: I'm saving you.
Serena: I don't need to be saved.
Dan: Really? 'Cause I could see you eyes roll up the back of your head from across the room.
Blair: What is Nate doing? He's supposed to go find Kati and Is. It's getting late and I'm losing heat.
Chuck: Well you look ravishing. If I were your man, I wouldn't need clues to find you.
Gossip Girl: What was it we say about appearances? Yes, they can be deceiving. But most of the time, what you see is what you get.
Gossip Girl: Why is it that friends of Serena van der Woodsen have to search for her suitor? Have fables fallen so out of fashion that Princesses have to do everything themselves? Call us old school, but sometimes the Fairy Tale ending requires the Knight to get off his ass and saddle up his steed.
Blair: Who does this Dan Humphrey think he is? Serena is putting up a strong front, but I can see how hurt she is. We have to help her heal her heart.
Kati: Blair, it is pretty late notice.
Isabel: Most of the good ones are already taken.
Blair: No more excuses! Serena must have the hottest date ever. If he's got plans, he'll change it. If he's got a girlfriend, he'll dump her. If he's out of town, he'll charter a G5 and fly home. Make it happen.
Serena: (after talking to Dan on the phone) I think I need a date.
Dan: (to Rufus) It's a masked ball. I'm sure she thinks I'd never go to something that pretentious, which shows she knows me well.
(the scene cuts to Serena and Blair)
Serena: I know him. A masked ball? Dan would never wanna go to something that pretentious. He has to wear a mask and a tux?
Blair: He likes you! He would wear a tux and a mask and one of my mother's dresses if it meant that he could go out with you. Come on! What are you worried that he already has a date? I mean, he is Dan Humphrey.
Serena: Shut up. I don't know. I guess a masked ball is better than a regular party because then all those kids from school that he hates, he wouldn't even recognize them.
Blair: Hey, invite him. I insist.
(scene cuts back to Dan and Rufus)
Dan: I'm not saying I wouldn't go. If Serena asked me I wouldn't deprive her of my company.
Rufus: No, that would be too cruel.
Dan: But she hasn't asked me, so...
Dan: A ball?
Rufus: Haven't you heard? Your sister's Cinderella.
Dan: And let me guess. Your wicked step-sister is Blair Waldorf.
Blair: Tonight is all about starting over. I trust you...and him.
Serena: (pretending to bow) Well, then I will be honored to serve you, my queen.
Blair: Is that a bong, Mother? I didn't take you for a stoner.

Perogies (pol. Pierogi) are Polish variation of Slavic stuffed dumplings. They are made of unleavened dough and can be stuffed with mashed potato, soft cheese, sauerkraut, meat, mushrooms or in the summer with seasonal fruits. In US or UK the perogies are the most common name for every Eastern European dumplings which is not accurate as they are differentiated in making technique and stuffing. In Russia they are called vareniki, in Hungary they are referred to as derelye.
Dan's ex mention going to Angelika. Angelika is an independent movie theater on Houston Street in Soho, Manhattan.
When Dan's ex mentions "perogies at Veselka" she is referring to eating perogies, an Eastern European dumpling. Veselka is a restaurant on 2nd Avenue and 9th Street in the East Village in Manhattan.
