Episode Quotes

Blair Waldorf: Did you choose Serena over me? You could've picked a stranger; you didn't have to choose my best friend. What, you think I wouldn't have found out?
Eleanor Waldorf: I was going to tell you tonight at dinner. There was no right decision. There wasn't any time. I know you can understand all this. It was mishandled, the whole thing from top to bottom.
Blair Waldorf: You actually want me to agree with you.
Eleanor Waldorf: Bendel's will legitimize this company. It will take everything to the next level, you know how hard I have worked for that. You've always been my biggest supporter, my biggest fan.
Blair Waldorf: I'm your daughter.
Eleanor Waldorf: And as my daughter, I knew that you would forgive me, in time, but if my company had lost this deal because of you, I'd never forgive myself.
Blair Waldorf: I hope you never do.
Blair Waldorf: Oh God, forgot what it was like to be with you. [Serena and Blair pass two guys looking at them]
Serena van der Woodsen: No they were looking at both of us.
Blair Waldorf: Don't insult me. It's been like this all morning starting with your lovely visit with my mother. She didn't even call me to tell me I was coming home.
Serena van der Woodsen: Well she was busy, she was rushing to get home and everything, because she wanted to see you.
Blair Waldorf: She didn't even wake me up.
Serena van der Woodsen: Well you know how Eleanor feels about beauty rest.
Blair Waldorf: She likes you more than me.
Serena van der Woodsen: She does not you're her daughter. She doesn't like anyone more than you she just, I dunno doesn't know how to show it sometimes.
Blair Waldorf: Okay, I'm going inside. Wait for me I'll be right back.
Gossip Girl: [voice-over] You didn't hear it from us but in every girl's life there comes a moment when she realizes that her mother just might be more messed up than she is.
