Gossip Girl Round Table: "Carrnal Knowledge"

As fans venture to our Carrnal Knowledge" include memorable quotes, the next step for Chair, Nate and Vanessa, and when we will finally meet the mysterious Andrew ...

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

DANdy: Blair's motivating speech to her minions: "What we do here today echoes through eternity. Who's with me?" Move over, William Wallace!

Mister Meester: A tie between Blair's claim that she "befriended a family of squirrels" and Nelly Yuki immediately clamoring for a contraband phone to "check the Dow." We'd have pegged Nelly for a NASDAQ investor, but point taken.

Gossip Guy: I totally have to give to my boy Dan for when he called Jenny out on her old makeup with, "I'm glad you're not wearing that raccoon makeup anymore, because you looked like one of the Incredibles." It may be my ego, but I like to think the Gossip Girl writers are reading our site and giving us little inside jokes. We appreciate it.

2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?

DANdy: Totally useFUL... if this had been an hour-long infomercial for dental hygiene. The couple spent more time laughing over one-liners less funny than season five Entourage quotes than they did talking.

Mister Meester: A little of both. I don't hate them on principle like some people I know, but these two are trying way too hard to be this perfect, cute, funny happy-go-lucky couple. Tone it down. You're not making anyone green with NV.

Gossip Guy: Totally useless. Personally I thought Nate was being cute with the little joke of sending the mask, but I think when you send it to Vanessa all humor and cuteness instantly convert to uselessness. And from the Gossip Girl spoilers I've read, you're wasting your efforts on this little hussy. Please, Vanessa. Like you could do better than Nate.

3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?

Mister Meester: Obviously Rachel, but Blair's actions do make for an interesting discussion of two points: 1. Is posting anonymous rumors about someone online really slander? 2. If Gossip Girl has become so big that the Constance board is holding meetings about her, how is she (or he) still anonymous? And does the site post just anything?

Gossip Guy: Umm Rachel, Rachel, and Rachel. I'm glad Rufus finally confirmed what I was thinking... even if nothing happened between Dan and Rachel, her actions were way inappropriate. Meeting with students late at night and going on dates? I don't care how cute she is, it's just wrong. Blair, you just did what any Queen B should do, exact revenge.

DANdy: Rachel. Just because you're cute and from out of town doesn't mean you should be flirting with students.

4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?

Gossip Guy: I'm sorry, I'm kind of done with Derena at this point. Dan, you finally get back the supposed girl of your dreams and you're acting this way with little miss teacher? I'm sorry, but Rachel may be cute, but Serena is gorgeous. You're seriously this dumb? I'm done supporting Derena and I'm down to just my Chair that I can hope and pray for.

DANdy: I hope it's over. Serena needs to find a man more open to sex tapes.

Mister Meester: I've always been a Derena fan, but this isn't working. If it's not one thing, it's another, and neither are secure enough in what they want or who they are. Perhaps much later they can be together, but as things stand right now it's not happening.

5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?

Gossip Guy: I think Chuck is going to be fine in all this and even get invited to this uber secret cool society. Now the mystery nanny-escort? I think she's a goner.

DANdy: At the very, very least, a posting on Gossip Girl; if only so the headline can read: Bass and Random Hottie: What the Elle?!?

Mister Meester: Are we supposed to believe Elle was offed because she allowed an outsider into this club? Whether she has been or not, expect Chuck to try to unravel this mystery and possibly get in over his head.

4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try? I've always been a BIG fan of Dan and Serena...but what Dan did made me so disappointed or should I say, disgusted? Come on, with a teacher? Yuck. That Carr should be kicked in the ass--big time! It's GROSS. I'm actually not sure if I still want Dan and Serena to give their relationship another chance. Correct me if I'm wrong but Dan and Serena are the GG couple who had a hella-roller-coaster-ride. It's been a "rough" road for both of them. Too much drama. To writers: If you're planning to give Dan and Serena their *insert number* try on their relationship, then at least, cut all the dramas. Maybe kill Rufus and Lily's relationship, then kill the half-brother too. Haha! Point is, give Dan and Serena a chance to be happy--not only for two or three episodes. Give them a break from all the drama. ...but if you're not planning to give their relationship a chance, then find a real guy for Serena. Not Aaron, not even that Gabriel. Something like Nate, perhaps? Haha!

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
It had to be when Lily walked into Constance with Rufus and said, "I can't believe we're here on a Saturday." Lily is slowly climbing up my "favorite characters" list. That totally shows her casual, teenage attitude. It was exactly what a teenager would say. As a matter of fact, I do believe someone in the Breakfast Club says nearly the exact same thing when they have to go to detention. Lily pays the tuition and plans school dance, but when she has to waste her precious Saturday evenings at school, she feels like she is in detention herself. 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?
Useless, Vanessa should go back Vermont. She is a nuisance to everyone. After those pictures of her kissing Chuck and Nate kissing Blair my CB heart may very well broke into two. Obviously, Blair is probably helping out Nate and Chuck... well, Chuck is Chuck so I hope he breaks that twit's heart and go running to Blair. 3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?
Rachel. Rachel. Rachel. I know I would have done what Blair did. Yale, school, and her reputation (Nelly Yuki is going down, I'll make sure of it) were on the line she had to act out and fix it. I didn't like Rachel from the beginning. She was definitely not smart or mature to have "dates" with underage students of the brother school she teaches in and even let Dan touch her at all, let alone in public. Dan should atleast have known better they are in "Gossip Girl country," no one is safe. Plently of students have crushes on their teachers, the teachers need to control themselves and make sure they won't do anything that can get them fired. Obviously, Rachel is stupid and couldn't figure that out sooner. That ending made me want to vomit, Dan is such an ass. The only two characters I want to see making out, in a dark room, on a bed, with minimal clothes is Blair and Chuck. (I WILL NEVER LOSE HOPE IN CB!) 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?
Probably. Do I want it to happen? No. Hopefully, the Lily Rufus thing will get more serious and then it would just be too awkward to have them date. Dan needs to get out of his little fairyland and Serena needs to get a grip and find a real man. 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?
Nothing what so ever. Elle is just another temporary person they added to keep Chuck busy and also bring a few other main characters towards him so he doesn't go under the radar again. I mean really, we all know Chair is never dead. :] They are just plugged for right now, but they will erupt soon.

1. I have to give it to Blair talkign to Dorota in the bathroom; "Did anyone see you?"...only on gossip girl. 2 I think that they were kind of important but at the same time, relatively boring. LOVED HER BAG THO! 3. Completely Rachel, how can it get anymore innapropiate than that, Blair was just telling gossip gil what she saw. Sidenote: Rachel asking Serena what Gossip Girl is...? Uh, I know that your from out of town but...get with the rest of the London Sole flats. 4. It's over, which is sad but at the same time refreshing. I know that I am personally ready for the love triangle of B, N, and S to come out again! 5. I'm pretty sure it won't be long term drama, but it's a new change of pace. I enjoyed the twist.

Vanessa's "I'm going to go file this." hah. 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?
I think it's cute. Don't judge. hah. 3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?
I'm not sure. I've never really been a big Blair fan but I don't want Derena to end. 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?
I hope it's not they're GREAT together. 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?
I think that he'll realize that his dad wasn't the most holy guy in the world and maybe he'll find out some Wall Street Secrets or something that he's not supposed to know about.

1) dan's comment on jenny's makeup. nice going, humphrey :)
2) TOTALLY USELESS. i love blair and chuck together, but by the looks of it right they're not getting back together for a while now, so let's go nate and blair!
3) although i'm starting to really like this dan and rachel situation, rachel definitely acted inappropriately. that having been said, i hope rachel and dan end up secretly dating for a while!!
4) i really, REALLY dislike derena. i hope they are kept apart, and i think this is it for a very long time (thank god!)
5) i don't think that elle is good for chuck, she seems like a bad person and a liar. even though i love chuck, i thought that that storyline didn't make much sense and was also kind of boring.

do you guys think BLAKE LIVELY and PENN BADGLEY have had sex in real life?

My favorite quote was from Blair when she questioned Dan's anatomy when he show up in the girl's bathroom. I really want Dan and Serena to end. And for Nate and Vanessa to end too. They are just so pathetic they don't even deserve each other. That Elle woman has to go for good. The last thing we need is for someone who is NOT Blair to be turning him on.

I made friends with a family of squirrels, and had lots of time to think.
