(When Serena and Dan are about to get going, Lily shows up)
Lily: Great. Just in time for lunch.
Dan: Ms. van der Woodsen.
Lily: Dan. Still here.
Serena: Look Mom, I really don't think it's a good idea for me to go to that brunch.
Lily: You promised.
Serena: Yeah, but that was... before I knew Dan was hungry too. I can't let the boy starve.
Dan: It would be inhuman.
Lily: He is not invited.
Serena: Yeah that's why I'm going with him.
Dan: Because I can't go with her.
Serena: And we had plans to go to brunch together today.
Dan: We had those plans.
Lily: Serena, you're home, living under my roof. My rules. What is it going to take to get you dressed and through that door?
(Next scene Serena and Dan are entering the Sunday brunch at the Palace. Chuck, Blair and the others are already at their table)
Serena: You know, maybe... maybe this was a bad idea.
Blair: You've got to be kidding.
Dan: Yeah, this was... this was definitely a bad idea.
Chuck: This should be fun.
