Round Table: "A Southern Gentleman Prefers Blondes"

by at . Comments

Welcome to the Gossip Girl Round Table! The Gossip Girl Insider staff comes together each Tuesday to analyze the burning questions, classic quotes and memorable moments from the previous evening's episode of our favorite show.

This week's hot Gossip Girl topics include memorable lines and fashion statements, the future of Nate and Blair, Rufus proposing to Lily, Gabriel's scheme and much more.

Sound off below or in our ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

DANdy: When Gabriel asks Poppy what the hell Butter is. Ha! Like anyone well-connected in New York City would not be familiar with this popular hot spot, owned by Paula Abdul's ex-boyfriend, JT Torregiani.

Gossip Guy: It may be the Chair fan in me, but I got all giddy through the whole scene where Chuck and Blair met up while she was spying. We'll give the best quote to Chuck Bass for noticing the beret and immediately asking who she's spying on.

Mister Meester: This week was a tie for me. First, Gabriel telling Poppy, "Serena didn't steal me. She swept me away." Awful. No self-respecting dude would say that, even in the midst of an investment scam. Second, I was wondering how Blair could possibly know Gabriel's story was bogus when she said: "I know for a fact Butter was closed that night because I used their bartender for the Nelly Yuki SAT sabotage party!" Genius.

2. Best fashion moment of the night - Chuck's basketball attire, Serena's "dress" at the co-op party, or the "OMJC" shirts at Georgina's camp?

DANdy: Gotta go with Serena's "dress." I liked how it drew attention to her "giant boobs."

Mister Meester: OMJC was a hilarious touch, but you gotta go with Serena wearing lingerie to an upscale party. Also great? After trying that cleavage-baring undershirt dress on, she opted for another, but Blair made her change back.

Gossip Guy: Oh this is an easy one, definitely Chuck's basketball uniform. A close second is his purple bowtie he wore with a pink shirt.

3. Harder to believe: The distance between NYU and Columbia constituting a long-distance relationship, Lily and friends forking over cash in minutes in this economy, or any scene involving Vanessa?

Mister Meester: I can buy Lily's loose purse-strings, as it was a feel-good investment in a start-up company that was probably a drop in the bucket for her, given Bart's billions. V's drunken scene didn't bother me too much either. Even Nate worrying about his "long-distance" relationship made some sense, until he got the apartment of course. They'd both be willing to go three miles to school, but not six to see each other?

DANdy: The NYU-Columbia conundrum. It's one thing to understand your girlfriend and allow her to enjoy the occasional scheming, Nathaniel; it's another to acquiesce completely to her spoiled, non-subway riding nature and shell out such big bucks on a luxury apartment. Especially in this economy.

Gossip Guy: Phew. I thought I was going to have to think about this and then you gave me the easy out. Definitely the useless Vanessa. Did we really need her pointless "I Never" scene? Ooh, she made the big reveal about Rufus not having enough money to send Dan to school. Big whoop. He knew that, retard. Did you not hear about his catering job?

4. Should Rufus propose to Lily?

Gossip Guy: Yes! It would solve all your financial problems and score you the incredibly hot Lily. Plus, with Kelly Rutherford's pregnancy, we have a natural storyline where Serena and Dan get a half brother / sister. Can't wait!

DANdy: Is the sky blue? Are Sasha and Malia Obama the cutest kids on the planet? Should Chuck install a camera in Serena's bedroom that allows viewers watch every minute of her action between the sheets? Yes!

Mister Meester: Totally. I've always loved these two together, and weird step-sibling issues / love child aside, I have a feeling the fifth time will be the charm for Lily.

Blair and Nate Photo

Are these two bound for unexciting, domestic bliss in Murray Hill?

5. Should Blair move in with Nate?

Mister Meester: Yes. If only to see the ploys - dressing up as the pizza delivery guy, calling in a bomb threat from his limo outside, leasing the place next door, etc. - Chuck would conjure up to disrupt Nair's domestic love nest.

Gossip Guy: No way! Blair held Chuck's hand while they slept in the limo and that was way hotter than all her moments with Nate combined.

DANdy: No. Considering their age (18) and her near-actions this week (getting Chucked by her ex in the backseat of a limo... again), it's probably too soon for this couple.

BONUS QUESTION: What do you predict will happen next in the Serena-Poppy-Gabriel saga?

DANdy: Rufus will go bankrupt as a result of the scheme. The family will try to sell Vanessa on the black market to make back its money... but no one will buy her.

Mister Meester: Poppy and Gabriel have clearly devised a plan to bilk Serena's family and friends. The question is who will take them down. All I know is that it had better involve Georgina Sparks going undercover. I cannot wait for the reformed, Jesus-loving girl we witnessed last night to drop the act and revert to normal.

Gossip Guy: I get bored of this crime caper story line that feels out of place in Gossip Girl.

What's really weird is that sad excuse for a dress was designed by two girls (the creators of the line Vena Cava) who graduated from my school a few years ago. I had no idea that "cleavage baring undershirt" was actually popular enough to get on Gossip Girl.
It's almost as bad as my elementary school classmate's mom being the Gela Nash, one of the creators of Juicy Couture. Gross...

1.What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
There were some real zingers in this one, but I liked Blair’s “Having your cake and eating her’s too� also liked the wanting to know where he’s “poofing to�
2. Best fashion moment of the night - Chuck's basketball attire, Serena's "dress" at the co-op party, or the "OMJC" shirts at Georgina's camp?
All 3, Chuck Bass playing basket ball was a sight to behold and “OMJC� was a great start to bringing Georgina back.
3. Harder to believe: The distance between NYU and Columbia constituting a long-distance relationship, Lily and friends forking over cash in minutes in this economy, or any scene involving Vanessa?
I think the distance between NYU and Columbia was harder to believe. About Lily and friends forking over cash is believable especially considering how Bernie Madoff pulled it off for so many years, besides the amounts that each of these people invested were between $125,000 and $150,000 which though a big amount, is not going to wipe them out, except for poor Rufus.
4. Should Rufus propose to Lily?
Yes, he should propose to Lily, completely agree with Mister Meester, totally love those two together and this time round they should be able to make it work.
5. Should Blair move in with Nate?
I think that it might not be a bad idea and she may actually realize that she much prefers Chuck, though I think that events will move fast enough and they may actually break up before the question of moving in even arises.
BONUS QUESTION: What do you predict will happen next in the Serena-Poppy-Gabriel saga?
I think Rufus will lose his money simply because he’s the only one so far who has actually given Gabriel a check, maybe the gang and Georgina can smoke Gabriel out before the rest send in their checks. Serena will get her heart broken and may turn to Dan for some friendly comfort.

This was an okay episode I guess. There wasn’t as much Chuck and Blair or as much of them being more into their relationship then I would have loved.
Nate is getting on my nerves. He always is but by interfering with Chair, it makes him extra hateful.
I really didn’t care about Serena-Gabriel-Poppy love/business triangle. They were boring. The only good thing that came out of it was that it kind of brought Chuck and Blair closer together and Blair and Nate further apart.
I find Dan, Jenny, Vanessa, Rufus, and Lily to be useless.
Georgina is back! I don’t know if I’m excited or horrified. Chuck and her seem to have a connection. Maybe that connection will make Blair jealous because she is in love with Chuck. Then again, I am also horrified because Georgina knows what Blair did to her last year and I saw how her face reacted when she found out Chuck came with Blair. She may be back for revenge.
As long as Chuck and Blair are talking and hopefully be doing a lot more than that in the near future I am good.
I really hope next week’s episode is better than this one because there wasn’t enough Chair for everyone.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? So many good quotes this episode. I miss Dorota so I guess that’s why I enjoyed this quote so much:
Blair: Oh Nate, what are you doing here? I thought there was a Mets game. I saw Dorota wearing her hat.
But I’m not done with Blair yet:
Blair: [to Serena] He fell in love with you while you were roofied. How romantic! 2. Best fashion moment of the night - Chuck's basketball attire, Serena's "dress" at the co-op party, or the "OMJC" shirts at Georgina's camp? Gosh, I don’t know. I guess I’ll give it to Serena. I don’t know how you girls just go crazy over Chuck Bass. Then again those OMJC shirts looked pretty cool, kind of like something my cousin would wear, you know with the lettering. 3. Harder to believe: The distance between NYU and Columbia constituting a long-distance relationship, Lily and friends forking over cash in minutes in this economy, or any scene involving Vanessa? Why do you guys always diss on Vanessa? Gee. Lily and her friends forking over cash in this economy? They’re freaking rich! So I guess I’d constitute my answer to the distance thing. But then again, traffic in New York is a killer. B and N, get out there and walk like commoners. 4. Should Rufus propose to Lily? If they want to be happy. As for me, no. I want D and S to get back together. Sure they share a step sibling but R and L getting married would seal the deal. 5. Should Blair move in with Nate? Blair, move in with Nate? Ha! See, if you noticed Monday, N told B he loved her but she didn’t say it back because she’s obviously still very much in love with Chuck. BONUS QUESTION: What do you predict will happen next in the Serena-Poppy-Gabriel saga? You know what? I’m sick and tired of Gabriel. It makes for an okay side plot as long as they don’t keep him around. He’s not really that hot. And Poppy’s hair is making me sick. Oh yeah, the question: they will be taken down.

I'm so happy and excited about all Chuck and Blair scenes in this episode that I cannot comment on anything else!
These two own the show, even if they're not officially a couple - yet - but just "partners in crime"!

Paige, I loved her facial expressions there too (and elsewhere). Especially since that's kind of my opinion of most of the VdW art. That Prada piece drives me up a wall.
