Episode Quotes

Chuck Bass: [speech to kick-off a weekend-long party] You've lived through Ivy Week and hopefully gained entry to the college of your choice. Now, let's ruin those chances.
Photographer: [after seing Blair's photoshoot] How's the client going to like the dress if the model doesn't even like herself?
Serena van der Woodsen: Blair, Blair wait where are you going? Blair, wait why are you so mad?
Blair Waldorf: Why am I mad? You mean why aren't I furious! I can't believe for one second I thought it would be different this time.
Serena van der Woodsen: You thought what would be different?
Blair Waldorf: You couldn't deal with the spotlight shining on me for once could you?
Serena van der Woodsen: What are you talking about? I was told we were doing this together. What did you not get my message?
Blair Waldorf: What about this morning then? When you glanced at the call sheet, did you see my name on it. When I wasn't in hair and makeup didn't that seem strange? When the dressing room only had your name on the door, what did you think they just forgot?
Serena van der Woodsen: I was told you were running late and they asked me to do some tests shots first. Blair they told me you wanted me here.
Blair Waldorf: And you believe them?
Serena van der Woodsen: Look Blair I encouraged you to do this. Why would I try to steal something from you that I pushed you to do?
Blair Waldorf: Because you take everything from me! Nate, my mom!
Serena van der Woodsen: Blair!
Blair Waldorf: You can't even help it, it's who you are. I just thought maybe this time it would be different. I should've known I'd be wrong.
