Gossip Girl Round Table: "Dan de Fleurette"

by at . Comments

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!

October 6th, 2009 2:01 PM Daniela: It is her fifth marriage. First of all, Rufus said so himself in 2x25. Second of all it is known she was married to Keith, some unknown guy, Klaus, Bart -- and know Rufus. the unknown guy is claus with a "C" remember that serena and eric in one episode start talking about the "klauses" and they say that one was klaus with a "C" and the other was Klaus with a "K".

Hi guys!
I would love that Rufus and Lily got married and I believe they will!
If you look closely at a picture, from the next episode "Enough about eve", you see Lily and Rufus together and he has a wedding ring in his left hand! So I suppose it's safe to assume they do get married! :) By the way I tought Lily's wedding dress in season 1 was so beautifull and now I was kinda disapointed that she will marry Rufus in a pink gown...it's a great dress but it´s not THE dress!
What do you think about it??

Favorite quote; Dumbo one. It made me feel how Chuck was so lonely before. Now Blair's his magical feather.

Life isn't a fairy tale, and happy endings are few and far between.

Gossip Girl

Olivia: I was just thinking, I didn't really give you a chance to know both sides of me. And I guess I was wondering if you'd still want to.
Dan: [pauses] I don't know why I'm pretending to think about it. Yes, of course.
