Gossip Girl Round Table: "Never Been Marcused"

As fans gather in our


1. What was your favorite Blair Waldorf quote?

DANdy: The Queen B's putdown of Catherine was classic Blair: she thought Catherine was "just a callow social-climbing former swimsuit model who married above her station and was enslaved by her own insecurities." Remind us never to get on Blair's bad side.

Mister Meester: Short and sweet: "Oh my effing God." You gotta love a fictional character paying tribute to her own show's OMFG ad campaign!

Gossip Guy: It was subtle and I'm sure went unnoticed by a lot of fans, but I have to give it to Blair for "Notice how my voice didn't go up at the end? Not a question." Best. Bitch. Ever.

2. Harder to believe: That Vanessa has nothing better to do than turn Rufus' art gallery into a cafe, or that Dan is the slightest bit hesitant to get with Serena?

DANdy: D was a virgin when he bedded S. Serena, to put it mildly, was not. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that Dan may wanna perfect his love-making craft before committing fully to Serena again; otherwise, he may eventually lose her to a seasoned sex kitten, such as Russell Brand.

Mister Meester: Vanessa. We know the girl mysteriously appears whenever there's trouble to cause. That's one thing. But renovating Rufus' space? What's the point? How does she even know how to do it? I give up.

Gossip Guy: I'm sorry, am I supposed to believe Vanessa has a life? Vanessa serves one purpose the Gossip Girl world: pissing me off. I believe she'd definitely have nothing better to do than work for Rufus. Anything to get closer to Dan. Whore. Now Dan not getting back with Serena? What an idiot!

3. Continuing a theme from last week's Round Table - what was the more uncomfortable place a Gossip Girl character had sex this episode: in the bus bathroom, or on the floor of the Hudson Hotel library bar?

Mister Meester: Nate looked more or less comfortable before he was busted mid-coitus. The bathroom, though, in late summer? Had to smell straight up foul.

Gossip Guy: Call me old fashioned but I'd take a bus bathroom over the floor of an unlocked library any day. You gotta also consider security part of your personal comfort. You don't want any future daughter-in-laws walking in.

DANdy: The library. All those people telling me to "shush!" would totally throw my game off.

4. Nate's relationship with Catherine her name will end in: Marriage? Heartbreak? Years of wild cougar maulings?

Gossip Guy: Well since Nate has become a high-end prostitute, I think their relationship will end when Catherine's husband begins to notice hundreds of thousands of dollars disappearing. Oh Catherine, man bangs may be the prettiest prostitute you'll ever find, but I'm sure you can find someone cheaper and more discreet.

DANdy: Marriage.

Mister Meester: Nate is familiar enough with the role of man-whore, and Catherine's essentially blackmailing him at this point, so Option C is a safe bet. This cougar will continue ransacking young Archibald for some time.

Chuck and Catherine

Chuck Bass will do anything to win Blair back... even try to ruin her.

5. What will be Chuck's next scheme to recapture Blair's heart?

Gossip Guy: Oh this is far from over! Chuck's tried using his brains and manipulation. Next up? I think our man uses his signature Chuck Bass stare and seduces Blair. How can she not fall for that intense look? My legs are shaking just thinking about it.

DANdy: I can see a giant billboard in Times Square: Believe in Bass. He doesn't Chuck and cover.

Mister Meester: I'm not a ladies man here, but in my experience, the best way into a girl's heart, and/or pants, generally has not been to sabotage her reputation and humiliate her in public. Chuck needs to employ some wholesome, old fashioned romance to win Blair Waldorf! Failing that, bribes go a long way.

DANdy: The library. All those people telling me to "shush!" would totally throw my game off. ahahah, very good one.


Chuck and Blair need to stop ruining each other.They need to make up and have a real relationship.


I love just about EVERYTHING Blair says to anything. Especially when she walked in on Catherine and Nate and she was lik "oh my effing god". Haha.


these are always funny! my favourite blair quote wasn't mentioned!!! i dont know the exact words but... 'Marcus may be the perfect post chuck palet cleanser, but he's also a very tasty dish on his own!' i dunno why i love it, i just do. its so clever! as for the hate that was shown towards Nate a few comments ago,, wat the frick you doin?!?!? IT DOESNT MATTER IF HE'S BORING(WHICH HE'S NOT ANYWAY) HE IS THE PRETTIEST MAN ALIVE, FORGET MAN, THE PRETTIEST PERSON ALIVE!!!!!!!


Vanessa the Beyotch has to go!
i just saw this clip on her during an interview on the morning news..and she was spilling some scoops abt the season..she mentioned "vanessa is going to like chuck!" OMFG! i would stop watching GG if that happenss!!! xoxo


Haha, I too sensed that kind of "thing" between Rufus and Vanessa as they talk. ROFL, I think it's so easy to sense this or notice it because 'best-girl-friend-who-used-to-like-you starts to date and screw your dad' is a Gossip Girl kind of plot line. ===
I agree that sooner or later Basshole will realize that a way to a woman's heart... especially Blair Waldorf's... is not to humiliate her in public or try to ruin her plans. lol...


Chuck needs to sweep her of her feet :) the old fashion way !!! or just tell her that he loves her.. hey! did you guys notice the sweetness in Blair when she said " Goodnight Chuck "? is it like a sign or something? she looked like she was so in love with him! xoxo


y r u hating on man bangs? i love him yea vanessa and rufus is definently going to happen, just before she gets killed of...


I thought I read on this board that Vanessa gets involved with an older man this season. I think that man might be Rufus. I sensed something during their conversations. I certainly hope this does not happen. Why the Vanessa hate? She's beautiful. The character I hate is "man bangs" AKA Nate. He's so boring!


Loved the "Notice how my voice didn't go up at the end? Not a question." quote Gossip Guy! :D When will chuck learn that ruining Blair will never endear him to her. But you do hurt the ones you love the most. Loving this season!! I agree with the Vanessa dislike.. maybe she will get killed off.
