Gossip Girl Round Table: "Dan de Fleurette"

by at .

As fans sound off in our Dan de Fleurette" include memorable lines, guest stars, the glory that is Chair, the reign of Jenny and next week's wedding ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

DANdy: Did Chuck really cite Dumbo at the end? That clearly wins.

Gossip Guy: Look, I live in Florida so pretty much all I wear is sandals, but I'm sorry, every line related to this by Chuck and and Blair was priceless. Chuck: "What do you expect from a place where men wear sandals?" Blair: "By the way, sandals are not shoes!" Good stuff.

Mister Meester: I loved Chuck's overdramatic, inspiring pep talk to Jenny, the girl from Brooklyn "who went toe-to-toe with Blair Waldorf and actually won her respect. You can't tell me that girl still isn't there ... Now that the dream is real, you owe it to her to live it." Barack Obama would be proud.

2. Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff: Good fun or cheap stunt?

DANdy: Good fun, for this reason: by starring opposite these dramatically-challenged stars, the acting skills of Blake Lively were actually on greater display than her cleavage. It was a welcome change. For one week at least.

Mister Meester: At least Tyra provided unintentional comedy with her overacting. I actually found much-maligned Hilary's character kind of cute with Dan.

Gossip Guy: Tyra Banks was beyond painful to watch. Now maybe it's because I've never seen Hilary Duff in her prior work, but I absolutely loved her. Maybe it's stunt casting to those Lizzie McGuire fans, but to me? It's was just an adorable girl I can't wait to see with Dan. Yeah, I said adorable.

3. Who did you miss most last night: Bree, Georgina, Carter, or Serena's cleavage?

Gossip Guy: Unfair. You can't put Serena's cleavage into that question an expect a serious answer out of Gossip Guy. If we removed that option, which we can never remove from my mind, I'd go with Carter. I really dig him and Serena together, unlike her publicity plot line.

Mister Meester: I missed all four, in the reverse order of how they are listed above. Girl was way too covered up last night thanks to her "job." On a serious note, I'm psyched to see how Bree and Carter know each other, and for more G drama.

DANdy: Bree. Unlike Lively, the less Chace Crawford has to act, the better. He - and viewers - are best served when he wears little clothing, which only happens these days when Bree is around.

4. What will Jenny's reign as Constance queen be like?

DANdy: Mostly like that of Latifah, minus the singing, body type, skin color and Oscar nomination.

Gossip Guy: Not sure if the annual Humphrey sleepover in the loft is going to have the same style as Blair's. Let's hope Rufus and Lily get married (see bonus question).

Mister Meester: It'd be wild if J, for all her talk of freedom and sunshine, became the biggest b!tch ever and ruled with an iron fist with Eric as her right-hand man.

J the Queen

Jenny tried to institute egalitarianism at Constance. For like 15 seconds.

5. Are Chuck and Blair more entertaining together than apart?

Gossip Guy: OMG are you still watching these two together? Still way entertaining. Chuck's whole motivational speech about how she's letting him down by giving up on winning over NYU? So amazingly narcissistic and something only Chuck could pull off. This couple proves they can still be themselves, entertaining, and in a relationship.

Mister Meester: It's close. Sometimes the heat of episodes like "The Dark Night," when their chemistry was still untapped but palpable, is lacking. But that's also normal. You can't deny that Chair as a couple has already provided some great moments without any will-they-or-won't-they drama.

DANdy: Yes. It's more impressive for the writers to come up with ways for the pair to face off, while still together and in love, than it is for them to be constantly fighting.

BONUS QUESTION: There's big drama coming up in next week's wedding episode. Will Lily and Rufus actually get married?

Mister Meester: I'm gonna say based on the promo that Georgia wrecks this for all involved and Rufus will not become Lily's fifth husband ... yet.

Gossip Guy: Maybe it's just the hormones from the pregnancy, but Lily's become a real #$%&. Why the hell is she blaming everything on Rufus while she's the one that disappeared on maternity leave... er, to take care of her mom? Let's hope Rufus can calm her down and lock this woman down.

DANdy: Lily and Rufus aren't married?!? Living in sin alert! Living in sin alert!

    1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
    Blair:'By the way sandals are not shoes!'

    2. Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff: Good fun or cheap stunt?
    Tyra Banks is no way an actress, its so ironic she actually played an actress whose scene got cut, i can't believe she got paid to do that. As for Hilary Duff i see a nice little episode arc forming and finally a normal girlfriend for Dan

    3. Who did you miss most last night: Bree, Georgina, Carter, or Serena's cleavage?
    Carter, i love his character he doesn't get enough air time on the show, he's like Chuck was at the beginning the bad boy everybody loves

    4. What will Jenny's reign as Constance queen be like?
    Jenny needs to get her arse in gear this series she's hardly done anything constructive.

    5. Are Chuck and Blair more entertaining together than apart?
    Chuck is as entertaining as always but Blair was really irritating this episode, she told Jenny she was her queen last series so why can't she just leave her to get on with it and concentrate on winning over the people of NYU.

    BONUS QUESTION: There's big drama coming up in next week's wedding episode. Will Lily and Rufus actually get married?
    You tell me!!

    1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
    Blair's french line. about that garden.

    2. Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff: Good fun or cheap stunt?
    Banks should stick to American's Next Top Model, now i love that, not for the acting, purely for the endless bitching. I actually like Hilary Duff, poor her, rooming with V.

    3. Who did you miss most last night: Bree, Georgina, Carter, or Serena's cleavage?
    hummm well, after the little cliffhanger last week, i was sorta anticipating Carter or Bree to clear that up. So I would have like to seem them.

    4. What will Jenny's reign as Constance queen be like?
    Jenny's not growing on me this season. And HER telling that other girl to wash her eyes?! I mean, okay, so she'd toned down the racoon this epi, it still wasn't subtle.

    5. Are Chuck and Blair more entertaining together than apart?
    Just anything Chuck and Blair is good for me. Altho, he's just a tad up his own arse, even more so this season.

    BONUS QUESTION: There's big drama coming up in next week's wedding episode. Will Lily and Rufus actually get married?
    po-ta-to, po-tah-to, who cares??

    Great episode!
    Rufly will obviously WILL get married and Im quite happy for it!
    The best (and funniest!) scene is caffee scene with Nate/Dan/Olivia. LOL! "unbeliavable"! Hehe!
    Tyra is hilarious! I don't mind she has no acting skills. Without them she's even better.))
    Strange but loved Hilary! She was her sweet self. I don't really buy her as a huge movie star but what a lovely couple with my Danny. Mmmmmm can't wait for they're future scenes together!
    Good ol' Blair is back again. Interesting when she will grow up...
    Jenny is turning to the dark side! Love that.
    Chuck's lines were ummm unnatural but lovely. Would love him to actually bring Blair to reality instead of trying to make everything the way she wants...
    V actually looked wonderful in scenes with O, maybe it's makeup but...
    CANT WAIT FOR NEXT EPISODE! Georgie is BACK!

    Why Chair never leave the scene together? they are a couple, wouldnt it be normal to leave on the same limo? guessing they are coming back home together...

    BEST QUOTE: Jenny: First of all, go wash your eyes.

    Quite the little hypocrite she is. Does anyone else wish to recall mid S2?

    I'm sure lily and rufus will get married. I also saw the pictures and to be honest why wouldn't they marry now their son is alive... I don't like Scott but normaly that would be a good thing?!?! Hope lily will be sweeter in the future, she has to take a good look at herself otherwise her fifth marriage won't work also.

    I'm glad tyra is gone. Didn't like her at all... I can act just as bad;) Don't know about Hilary we will see (if we want to or not!)

    Can't wait to see next weeks episode! The B*** is back!
