Gossip Girl Round Table: "Chuck in Real Life"

by at . Comments

As fans sound off in our Chuck in Real Life" include sexy outfits, Chuck turning the tables on Blair, and the paradox that is Vanessa  ...

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?

DANdy: This is an easy one. Chuck to Vanessa: "Did you have a reason for coming to see me? Because if it was to insult me, there's a website you can go to." Thanks for the shout out, Chuck!

Mister Meester: This exchange: Chuck: "My, that girl has gotten under your skin." Blair: "The question is, Bass - will you?" Oh, Blair, you dirty, dirty girl.

Gossip Guy: As much as I want to give my favorite quote to Chuck like I do almost every week, this time it was from an underdog... Eric. I loved his line, "Who watches TV on a TV anymore?" Yet another awesome example of Gossip Girl poking fun of itself. (The show is mostly watched on the Internet, people! Woo, tough crowd.)

2. Less believable: Nate living alone, sleeping on the floor with the power turned off, unbeknownst to anyone else, or Dan playing soccer?

DANdy: Considering how impressed Dan seemed to be by Nate simply bouncing a ball off his knee, gotta go with the latter.

Mister Meester: Anything that involves Dan and balls is too big a stretch.

Gossip Guy: Nate. How does he get those delicious man bangs without running water and his highly lit vanity mirror. That hair doesn't just happen people! Now if they said Dan was good at soccer, I wouldn't have believed it.

3. Do you like Vanessa?

Mister Meester: Everybody, from my colleague Gossip Guy to Gossip Girl book series author Cecily von Ziegesar, hates Vanessa on the show. But I maintain there's a great character deep down, she just hasn't gotten the right story yet.

Gossip Guy: Was this question put in for just me? I think we all know my answer. I loathe, despise, abhor, detest, and "any other word for hate you can come up with" Vanessa. So no, I don't like her.

DANdy: I like how she manages to show up at the Humphreys' apartment, the school and pretty much anywhere the show needs her to be, at any time. For someone supporting herself with a job and being home-schooled, girl has a seriously flexible schedule!

4. Hotter: Blair in that lingerie, or Serena in that dress?

Gossip Guy: OMG. Why would you make a man choose between two things of such beauty? Serena may have the looks, but I'm a sucker for lingerie. Go Chuck. You have willpower beyond any mere mortal. You never cease to amaze me.

DANdy: The answer would have been Blair... until Serena told Bart she wasn't wearing ANY lingerie under that dress. Double gulp!

Mister Meester: The Blair-Chuck love scene was amazingly sexy, but even that can't compete with the hottest dress in the history of human civilization.

5. Do you prefer Chuck chasing Blair, or the reverse?

Gossip Guy: Chuck Bass already proved he can win Blair Waldorf over no matter what. Now let's see what the queen of getting what she wants does. I'm obsessed with Blair's manipulative plans. They make the show go 'round.

DANdy: Chuck can only act like a Basshole for so many episodes. I'm excited to see how Blair Wal-dork (you can use that one, Chuck) acts as the pursuer.

Mister Meester: He finally gets to bag the girl of his dreams, but then decides he wants the deeper, emotional connection he himself denied her in the season premiere? Bravo, Schwartz et al., for this latest twist - let's see how B fares!

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
-Blair: "I need you to take care of that troll Vanessa."
-Chuck: "Not what I expected." And Dan's hilarious bro phone conversation with Nate. Less believable: Nate living alone, sleeping on the floor with the power turned off, unbeknownst to anyone else, or Dan playing soccer? Nate--wouldn't his relatives freaking help him out? Grandparents? Aunts and Uncles? Do you like Vanessa?
Eh. I still have a residual pissiness towards her for effing up things for Nate/Duchess/Marcus so badly. Blair was handling it, Vanessa! Jeez. Hotter: Blair in that lingerie, or Serena in that dress?
Blair. Freaking gorgeous. Do you prefer Chuck chasing Blair, or the reverse?
Hmm...I like seeing Chuck having a soft side, but I'm looking forward to seeing Blair chasing Chuck while trying too look like she's not chasing him. :P

did you note that every person who answers in question 3* "I like Vanessa" ,, in question 4 they like better Serena than Blair.
and when in question 3 the answer is "i hate Vanessa, i don't like Vaness" in question 4 they like Blair more than Serena
Coincidence? i don't think so :P!

Blair: "Despite whatever vestigial attraction my body may feel for you, my brain knows better" (At least she's admitting she lusts for Chuck...) Oh n sorry but the English teacher in me needs to point out Lily's "Bart and me, we made the decision together" grammar mistake... should it not be "Bart & 'I'"? :P 2. Less believable: Nate living alone, sleeping on the floor with the power turned off, unbeknownst to anyone else, or Dan playing soccer?
If even Vanessa is incredulous that Dan's carrying around a soccer ball...i'll have to go with that one. I think Nate's def. too proud but would have the intelligence to get by. 3. Do you like Vanessa?
Why does everyone hate her? maybe cos i haven't read the books... but I think this episode was the best ever, and she definitely was a good part of it. I loved Blair's look when she said "Chuck didn't hit on me once", and "Maybe what's really going on here is u can't stand that he actually might be a good person when he's not around you." SPOT ON! I do actually like this episode and the one of chuck n dan, 'cos it's nice to see Chuck is actually human despite what Blair thinks. And if it takes poor people like Dan n Vanessa to bring that out in Chuck... I'm all for it! Ok, so Vanessa's not as hot as Blair, but there's only so much bitchiness someone can put up with~ I would love for Chuck to really develop feelings for Vanessa. 4. Hotter: Blair in that lingerie, or Serena in that dress?
Blair...She is way hotter than Serena. I think Serena has a jaw problem, n maybe cos I never liked blondes... but Lily last episode... WOW, HOT! 5. Do you prefer Chuck chasing Blair, or the reverse?
As I said before, Blair does make Chuck a disgusting person. So, I wasn't really into the end scene n them getting together again, so doesn't matter to me. Do they have to chase at all? I just hope it all ends. I dunno I know it'll make the show less interesting, but I did like the 'whole happy family' scene and in my mind it doesn't involve Bart... n where was Chuck?? What i would like to see is Lily n Rufus getting back 2gether, and all the kids happy... and Nate n Vanessa get adopted in or something... Or is that too Brady for the show? haha Glad Eric made it back onto the show! n for him to bring a bf! Is Jonathan going to be a big part of the show too? Funny he defends Bart so much, but it's nice to see such a sensitive side. I'm hoping that it's Bart's funeral coming up so Lily n Rufus have a chance, but still doesn't explain why Jenny would be crying her eyes out... I wanna see more!!!

1.Bart: As tomorrow's party marks our debut as a family, we've been talking about what that actually means.
Chuck: Less money for me when you die?
The way he said it was really funny. 2.Nate being a squatter is totally unbelievable. Where was he doing his laundry? Where did he shower? His hair was impeccable and clothes always clean! 3. I hate Vanessa. She is such a goody two shoes not to mention boring and annoying. I hope Chuck doesn’t befriend or hook up with her. That would be dreadful. 4. Blair. Haven't really seen her in something this revealing before. 5. In my opinion, Chuck should be the one chasing Blair (all the time) because he has treated her much worse than she’s ever treated him. Let’s see what happens with her doing the chasing though.

I think it was Serena's story about the "White Christmas" she and Eric had. Less believable: Nate living alone, sleeping on the floor with the power turned off, unbeknownst to anyone else, or Dan playing soccer?
Dan playing soccer? Uh, no. Could his character get any more annoying? Do you like Vanessa?
Yes, she's nice, sweet, down-to-earth and she means well. I'm looking forward to her friendship with Chuck. He needs someone nice and stable in his life, especially if Bart dies. Hotter: Blair in that lingerie, or Serena in that dress?
I'm going to have to go with a tie, here. Do you prefer Chuck chasing Blair, or the reverse?
I think it's time for Blair to chase Chuck for a bit. I still think that they both need to mature and get to know each other better if they want a chance at being happy together.

1."If you thought that was long, you have no idea what you're in for." time 2 change the panties 2. Nate. Really I'm suprised it wasn't on GG's home page! 3. I think Jessica has untapped potential that the GG writers aren't using. That being said...Vanessa's gotta go or give her something better! 4.I'm calling a tie! 5. I just want some "I love yous" from them both!

1. If your here to insult me, there's a website you can go to. LOL :D 2. Nate alone in the mansion..totally! Dan.. I bet he has a few secret talents up his sleeve! 3.I don't know if I like vanessa. If she was more kick ass like she is in the books I probably would like her! 4. Blair totally!! 5.I think Blair chasing chuck should be very interesting and very entertaining!
