  • Quotes

    • Nate: So when I grabbed your hand back there, you seemed to like it. Was that just a part of the act, or do I actually have a shot at a date?
      Juliet: You've been over Serena for, like, seven minutes. You're not ready for me yet.
      Nate: And when I am?
      Juliet: You know how to find me.

    • Blair: Just because you're dressed poorly doesn't mean you're not Chuck Bass.
      Chuck: Why would I wanna be him?
      Blair: You should have told me you got shot.
      Chuck: I'm surprised you didn't shoot me yourself.
      Blair: I have. Many times. In my dreams. The good ones.. But if you were really hurt, i would wanna know.
      Chuck: When I woke up, my ID was gone. Nobody knew who I was, nobody was coming to look for me. I realized that I might be alive but Chuck Bass doesn't have to be.
      Blair: Changing your name doesn't change who you are.
      Chuck: It's a good start. A chance to live simply, earn people's respect. Maybe become a person someone could love.
      Blair: Someone did love you. And you owe it to her and everyone else you are leaving behind not to run away, which is what you're doing. And I don't think that great man you're talking about wanting to be.. is a coward. I think he would face up to what he did.
      Chuck: I destroyed the only thing I ever loved.
      Blair: I don't love you anymore. But it takes more than even You to destroy Blair Waldorf.
      Chuck: Your world would be easier if i didn't come back.
      Blair: That's true. But it wouldn't be my world without you in it.

    • Dan: Here Nate, can you take him for a second?
      Nate: I don't have to sing, do I?

    • Dan: (Singing to Milo) This loft is your loft, this loft is my loft. Where's your aunt Jenny, she moved to Hudson. She wears... leggings.
      Nate: Wow, I wish I hadn't seen or heard that.

    • Eva: You got me a ticket?
      Chuck: We don't need tickets. I'm Chuck Bass.

    • Blair: I love you Nate or I love you Dan
      Serena: I love you Mum
