Gossip Girl Round Table: "Dan de Fleurette"

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!

1. Favorite quote was Chuck's "next time you forget you're Blair Waldorf remember I'm Chuck Bass... and I love you". And the other, not for the quote itself but for Blair's face when she says it: !by the way sandals are not shoes".
2. I thought Tyra was good in comedy... let's just leave it at that. And as for Hilary Duff, I liked her in the show but not really LOVED it. It was okay.
3. I have to say I missed Georgie. She always has good quotes in every episode she's in.
4. I think Little J can be a real bitch... and that's one of the most important things you need to rule Constance. But nothing compared to Blair's queendom...
5. They are totally more entertainig together. This season you get everything you can get from them: love, fight, cuteness, and so on and on...
BONUS QUESTION: I don't know if they'll get married but I'm just glad Georgina is coming back. Lots of drama ahead, and that's a good thing for me. P.S: Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought the promo for "Rufus Getting Married" was waaaaaay better than the promo for "The Lost Boy"....


Hated the CJ creepy vibes
I didn't miss S's cleavage... I'd even take Bree over that...
I did miss the main characters of this show being... well the main actors of this show.
CB are entertaining both ways but the CJ, paying the photographer, bringing it back to himself and calling B dumbo was unnecessary...


Of course Lily and Rufus get married, and this would be her third husband where is everyone getting five from. I think that Lily should stop blaiming everyone for serena's behavior and maybe look at herself, that would be a first and how does Rufus sit there and take all her BS, she abuses him. He needs to grow a pair and put her in her place. Chair is cute of course and surprisingly I loved Olivia, she was sweet, sincere and she blended in with the cast well, I like her and maybe she will stay on. I believe that Dan needs to watch out cause Georgina is not going to take him dumping her lying down ( Watch out for vodoo dolls Dan) LOL. I did not like Vanessa being so needy calling scott and looking deperssed, I mean how long did she date him, a month!!!! I did like Serena in this episode, she showed some intelligence and acted like an adult with morals, well played. Nate was kind of funny, but he stills needs a better storyline without involving a female, please give him a personality, his looks can only go so far before fans get sick of him like Vanessa. Jenny is great, she gives good orders,and I think she will be even better than Blair, she is finding out that her dad marrying into money has it's advantages, good for you Little J.


word cb awesome


My opinion!
Enjoyed hilary as olivia, tyra was a good laugh Missed Carter he has grown on me Chuck and blair just as entertaining together Think it will take jenny time 2 get use to being quenn b which means dont expect much in till damien that is Lily and rufus will not get married breaks my heart just a bit


jenny as queen was perfectly reflected when her followers showed up wearing tutus under their skirts on the first day of school. i also laughed hysterically when they showed dan's line about raccoon makeup is the "previously on Gossip Girl" segment


haha! that's funny!! chair was cute! carter needs to come back next episode!! Missed him!!

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.
