Gossip Girl (2007-2012) is an American teen drama television series based on the popular novel series of the same name by Cecily von Ziegesar which originally aired on The CW. It stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester in the roles of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, respectively. Narrated by the omniscient yet unseen blogger "Gossip Girl", the series revolves around the lives of socialite teenagers growing up on New York City's Upper East Side who attend elite academic institutions while dealing with friends, family, jealousy, and other issues.

Belles de Jour [4.01]Edit

Blair: I really need my friend right now. I've been acting like I'm okay, but I'm not. They say it's a broken heart, but... I hurt in my whole body. I mean, what if I stay like this forever? What if I never get over Chuck?.
Serena: You will. You'll see.

Double Identity [4.02]Edit

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've 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.

Gossip Girl: Any time the rules change you don't know how they change you.

Serena: I know more than anyone what it’s like to want to reinvent yourself. But just because people are mad at you doesn’t mean you should disappear. My mom is really worried about you.
Chuck: I’m sure she’ll come to celebrate my absence. As will all the people who’ve wished me dead since the day I was born.
Serena: I know things were bad in New York, but if you don’t come home you’ll lose the Empire, you’ll lose everything you ever cared about.
Chuck: I lost the only thing I cared about. They can have everything else.

Chuck: [Through a note] I'd rather have nothing than be Chuck Bass.

Touch of Eva [4.04]Edit

Chuck: I know what you did Blair. It was despicable even for you. Do you hate me so much you can't stand to see me happy?
Blair: No!
Chuck: So why did you drive the person I care most about out of town?
Blair: Eva left? Chuck, I never meant to—
Chuck: Make her leave me? Of course you did. I need to know why. Is it possible you still love me?
Blair: How could I still love you after what you did?
Chuck: So you did it just to hurt me. Eva made me into someone I was proud to be. You just brought back my worst self. This means war Blair.
Blair: Chuck.
Chuck: Me versus you. No limits.

Easy J [4.06]Edit

Blair: [After finding Chuck at her door] If you're here to deliver any further humiliation Dorota can sign for it.
Chuck: Jenny was right. If we keep going we'll end up dead and I like myself too much to let that to happen. I assume you feel the same way.
Blair: About myself, more. What do you suggest?
Chuck: A truce.
Blair: Why don't you just sky-write the word 'double cross'? It'll be more subtle.
Chuck: Look, we can keep blaming each other for what happened that night or we can admit a harder truth. It was no one's fault. It was fate. Tragedy.
Blair: If Serena hadn't kissed Dan then Nate wouldn't have been at the hospital looking for her. And Jenny wouldn't have come looking for Nate...
Chuck: If Dorota hadn't gone into labor...
Blair: Maybe everything would be different. But it's not.
Chuck: We're holding onto the pain because it's all we have left. But we don't have to. We have a choice.
Blair: [Sighs deeply and extends her hand] Truce? [Chuck takes her hand and after a few seconds she pulls away] You can see yourself out.
Chuck: I know the way.

War at the Roses [4.07]Edit

Gossip Girl: But it's the true warrior who knows that wars don't end. They simply change. And there can never be peace as long as guns are still loaded and there's plenty of ammunition.
Blair: What are you still doing here, Chuck? I threw you out hours ago.
Chuck: I wanted to let you know the treaty is over.
Blair: Fine with me. This pretense of civility was exhausting.
Chuck: Being amicable isn't in our blood. I've realized we're not friends. Friends have to like each other and after what happened tonight, I could never like you.
Blair: I could never like you either, in fact, I hate you.
Chuck: I've never hated anyone more.
Blair: Every nerve ending in my body is electrified by hatred.
Chuck: There is a fiery pit of hate inside me, ready to explode.
Blair: So it's settled, then?
Chuck: We're settled.

[Chuck tears up the treaty. Chuck and Blair kiss and proceed to have sex on Blair's grand piano]

Juliet Doesn't Live Here Anymore [4.08]Edit

Juliet: I have proof that Serena Van der Woodsen is having an affair with her professor.
Dean Reuther: Miss Sharp, I am with friends. This is the one night of the year I can try to put everything else out of my mind and enjoy myself.
Blair: [Enters with Nate, Serena and Collin] Dean Reuther, may I please have a moment with you?
Dean Reuther: Of course you're involved with this Miss Waldorf, I told you and Miss Van der Woodsen to stay off my radar.
Juliet: Dean Reuther I am not lying.
Collin: What's going on?
Dean Reuther: Nothing that concerns you professor, or concerns anyone for the moment.
Juliet: Actually it does concern Collin, he was the one in the photos with Serena.
Dean Reuther: Is that why you resigned your position today?
Collin: While it's true that I resigned because of my involvement with a student, it's nobody's business who that student is. All that matters is that the responsibility is mine and I took it, by leaving my post.
Dean Reuther: That's somewhat admirable, Collin, and while usually it's the professor in the professor student relationship that takes propriety, if that student is under the suspicion of trading sex for grades in the past, I think we might need to examine the situation a little more closely.
Vanessa: Let me get my camera.
Juliet: [Sticks out the flashdrive] Here, look as close as you like.
Blair: [Takes the flashdrive] Let me help you with that. [Drops it in her glass of champagne] Whoops. You didn't wanna look at those photos anyway because it wasn't Serena in them. It was me.
Serena: Blair, you don't have to do this.
Blair: Why would I jeopardize my college career by lying? [To the Dean] So, go ahead, fire Collin. Oh wait, he already quit. So let's just go in and enjoy some jeté. Allegro.
Chuck: [Comes up from behind Blair] If I could say something. I for one can fully corroborate Miss Waldorf's story. She was indeed having an affair with Professor Forrester. I know this because I keep tabs on everyone Blair sees and talks to, due to my insatiable jealousy. Though she did state something to the effect that he didn't quite satisfy her like I used to.
Blair: It's true.
Juliet: Don't you see? They're all protecting each other.
Vanessa: This is what they always do.
Dean Reuther: [To Vanessa] I'm sorry. Who are you? [To Juliet] Miss Sharp, the reality is that with no proof I can't tell who is telling the truth.
Juliet: Yeah, well there was proof! Until Blair drowned it.
Dean Reuther: Juliet, I don't like tattletales much more than I like young women who use their sexuality to further their academic careers. So if you will please excuse me, I'm going to try my best to to enjoy this performance. Which, hopefully, is a little more graceful than the one I've just seen. Good evening.

[Collin has just told Juliet that he is cutting her off. Serena, Blair, Chuck and Nate are now surrounding Juliet]

Serena: Now it's our turn.
Chuck: You're obsession with Serena has grown tiresome.
Blair: Just because you have no money and delusions of grandeur, does not make it okay for you to be a single white trash female.
Juliet: Nate, this isn't me. You know that.
Nate: How would I ever believe anything you say again.
Blair: Well you can believe the part where she does her own hair.
Serena: You tried to destroy my friendship with Blair, my reputation, my academic career...
Chuck: You failed every time, and now it's time for you to go.
Juliet: I'm trying to.
Nate: He's talking about Columbia.
Blair: You don't belong there anyway.
Chuck: If we catch you hanging around there again there will be consequences.
Blair: And we're really good at payback.
Gossip Girl: Spotted: One ugly duckling exiled. Let's hope she doesn't turn into a black swan.

The Witches of Bushwick [4.09]Edit

Gossip Girl: Looks like the battle between Brooklyn and Upper East Side has finally come to a head. Word has it: Lonely Boy and Golden Boy both declared their love. They gave Cinderena up to midnight to decide. That Carolina Herrera dress makes her look like an angel but this decision is demonic... and the forces of evil are just getting started.

Chuck: [After Blair has been turned down for Anne Archibald's charity because of her relationship with Chuck] I'll give you the money to start whatever foundation you want.
Blair: It won't change anything. Anne's right. As long as I'm with you I'm Hillary in the White House. And I want to be Hillary, Secretary of State but... with better hair.
Chuck: Then you'll find another way to show the world you're a force to be reckoned with. We'll build our futures together.
Blair: I followed my heart all last year and it led me nowhere. Now I need to follow my head.
Chuck: You don't need to chose between them. Look at Brad and Angelina. They take turns on top.
Blair: Yeah, but she won an Oscar first. I'm sorry, but I have to be Blair Waldorf before I can be Chuck Bass' girlfriend.
Chuck: I love you.
Blair: I love you too. [Pause] I don't expect you to wait.
Chuck: If two people were meant to be together, eventually they'll find their way back.
Blair: Do you really believe that?
Chuck: I do.
Blair: So do I.
