Memorable Quotes

Chuck( about Bart): He was born poor. I was born loaded. But if the only way to impress him is that I started with nothing, why doesn't he just take it all away?

Lily: Because he loves you. No good parent likes to see his child go without.

Chuck: I had the idea. I did the work. He tells me I can't be committed, and he's the one screwing a 25-year-old when he is supposed to be committed to you!

Bart (to Chuck): I came down here because I saw the effort you made. Do you want to impress me with your commitment on something? Try get a few A's at school ,and maybe a part time job.

Rufus: The new art piece projects up to the ceiling.

Lily: Oh, still doing anything to get a girl on her back, huh?

Eleanor: You need to look elegant for the Archibald dinner tomorrow night, so what do you think?

Blair: Yes, it would be very nice, if I was sailing up on the Mayflower.

Dan: I know it may not compare to a suite at the Ritz in Paris or a chalet in Aspen, and it might be a fire hazard, but...

Serena: It's perfect.

Blair: I saw your father get arrested. Why didn't you come to me? I would have listened.

Nate: I tried, Blair. But every time I tried, something has got your attention; a dinner party, you know, a masked ball.

Blair: Yeah, let's talk about that masked ball. Let's talk about how I was waiting for you to find me so that we can finally be together, you were confessing your feelings and kissing Serena. I thought I was doing everything right.

Nate: It's not your fault.

Blair: Do you love me? You should deal with your father. He needs you. You know what? I don't.

Blair (to Jenny): Game recognizes game, Little J. But you have to show more respect. This is the last time I've helped you. Next time you cross me, I won't be as forgiving.

Gossip Girl: Spotted -Bass drunk off his ass; at the Palace bar drinking away his woes and his investment capital.

Dan: Sex is meaningful, like art. And you don't rush art

Blair: So, I heard on Gossip Girl that you were having sex with Dan out here,in streaming video.

Serena: Oh,God. Kati and Is filmed us?

Blair: Well, it's all very high school musical scandalous. And no, they haven't streamed it yet. But, I heard it was aggressive.

Gossip Girl: Jenny Humphrey's rise to the penthouse has been short and sweet. But if she crosses Blair Waldorf, it's straight back to the basement.

Serena (to Dan): You know, you'd think that with all the money that we spend on this private school, they could at least give us a comfortable spot to make out.

Blair: You want your dad to invest in a strip joint. How midtown.

Chuck: A burlesque club. A respectable place where people can be transported to another time, feel free to let loose. No judgments, pure escape. What happens at Victrola, stays at Victrola.

Blair: Well, it does have franchise potential. Chuck Bass, I do believe that all your years of underage boozing and womanising have finally paid off. Truly, I am proud
