Gossip Girl Notes from the Pilot

at . Comments

It was hard to miss the sex scene between Serena (Blake Lively) and Nate (Chace Crawford) in the pilot episode of Gossip Girl.

At least go in the coat room or something, guys.

Anyway, here are a couple of tidbits/inside jokes from the show many viewers may not have been aware of:

  • The Constance Billard School for Girls is based on The Nightingale-Bamford School on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Cecily von Ziegesar, the author of the Gossip Girl books, in which the series is based on, attended this private school.
  • As Dan rushes to catch his ride to school, we see the side of the bus; it has an advertisement with a logo that reads Smallville. This, of course, is another show on The CW.

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
