Gossip Girl Round Table: "Rufus Getting Married"

at . Comments

Welcome, Gossip Girl fans, to the Gossip Girl Insider Round Table!

As the Rufus Getting Married" include memorable lines, surprising twists, dubious plot holes, the enigma that is Carter and next week's promo ...


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

LovelyLively: Georgina nonchalantly admitting that she drugged poor Scott into telling her his life story. Michelle Trachtenberg is so awesome.

Gossip Guy: Oh man, I loved all of Blair's snide comments in front of Bree at dim sum. Like about Southerners' penchant for slavery. LOL.

Mister Meester: My inner cheeseball is going with Rufus' "we leap" speech, Lily's confession that Rufus is "the best man and father I have ever known," and Scott tearfully pleading for his parents to be together. Sorry guys. I'm lame.

2. Was this the best episode of the season so far?

LovelyLively: I'd have to say so. The four previous episodes culminated in a great one last night. It had humor, romance, deception, and Georgina being delightfully, bat$h!t insane. Talk about loving to hate someone. Also, kudos to the writers for Carter's story line being so much better than last season's.

Mister Meester: Yes. Because it was entertaining from beginning to end with little filler, people actually acted like they had brains, several important story lines were wrapped up, and next week was teased in exciting fashion.

Gossip Guy: Duh, of course. My man Rufus finally got back his pair from season one and locked that $h!t down.

3. Biggest surprise: Vanessa being one of the "good" guys, Scott actually bringing his parents together, or Dorota taking down Georgina?

LovelyLively: Scott, in a pleasant way. Rufus and Lily can be boring, secondary characters, but I loved how Scott, whose mere existence drove them apart last season, ended up bringing them together for good this time.

Gossip Guy: OMG, when I saw Dorota at the end of the episode I was laughing my ass off. And seriously? Vanessa being a best anything? Eww.

Mister Meester: Not just Dorota. Dorota and her doorman BF Vanya teaming up to take down G. Best. Plot. Twist. Ever. I wish we got to see them brainstorm this with Blair and possibly Chuck, but it worked great out of the blue, too.

4. Do you like Carter Baizen?

Gossip Guy: You know what doesn't sit right? A guy that dated a woman in the past for money is now dating Serena, daughter of Lily van der Woodsen Bass Humphrey. Two out of three of those last names smell like money to me.

Mister Meester: Amazingly I do. Chuck was right, he took a lot of risk showing up at the wedding, proving he really does care about Serena. It's funny to find yourself rooting for such a slime ball, but I sure will be next week!

LovelyLively: No way. How can you trust that guy after what we've seen and what he admits he did? There are probably even shadier things he won't cop to.

Should Serena trust Carter after all this?

5. Hardest to believe: Olivia's screen name being just Olivia, Serena hiding from her mom at Eleanor's penthouse, Rufus and Lily having no adult friends at their own wedding (not even Eleanor or CeCe)?

Gossip Guy: Yeah, seriously, where were all of Rufus and Lily's adult friends? I mean I know we haven't seen Eleanor since Season 2, but I'd like to think an episode this special could have the budget to bring back at least a few of her best friends, or at least her own mom.

Mister Meester: Olivia's screen name. Do you think Hilary Duff's is just Hilary? They could have had more fun with that one. On a side note, I like to think Blair's is "QueenB4Eva," Nate's is "ManBangs420" and Chuck's is "ImChuckBass."

LovelyLively: It is unclear why Serena was at Blair's mom's, but living arrangements have always been right behind NYC geography on the list of things Gossip Girl cannot make fully believable. Rufus and Lily having no friends, though? Hey, people are busy, and they had less than one day's notice!

BONUS QUESTION: Next week's promo looks interesting, to say the least. What do you predict will happen?

Mister Meester: Who would have guessed Chair's sexy games from the season premiere would backfire. I'm just hopeful they're able to get past this snafu.

Gossip Guy: WTH Chuck?

LovelyLively: Carter's a$$ is on the line in a high-stakes card game. My guess is Serena and/or Nate, out for revenge against Bree, save the day and Mr. Baizen.

In regard to Chuck kissing a guy ... I leave that to our readers. LOL.

I agree that this episode was a lot better then the rest, but I still don't get why there was no one that we know at the wedding, I personally was hoping Cyrus would show up. Carter annoys me, I hope Serena realizes that he is all wrong for her sometime soon.


1. Dan to Scott: "I should have guessed. no one under 40 has ever showed any interest in Lincoln Hawke"
2. This one, with the Auction being a close second.
3. How quick Georgie went with that fake prince...I would of thought she had better (you're about to get screwed) radar than that.
4. I think it's gonna come out that Chuck was right about him, just like Blair was right about Bree.
5. No adults at the wedding....I mean no Cece??


1. "You're love child! Yup not dead. Congratulations. It's a boy!" Truthfully I hate Georgina. But sometimes she really does make light of a heavy situation. 2. In the 3rd season? Yes. Everyone seemed so, TOGETHER! Before everyone was so separate. It felt like we were back to constance! 3. None of them were surprises. 4. I go back and forth. I used to. But now, no. I don't 5. Olivia's screen name. Serena being at Blair's house was NOT a surprise. Don't you guys remember in the auction episode? when blair was on the phone with serena and she said "of course S, mi casa is su casa!"? 6.


I dont like the idea of chuck bass issing a guy is not CHUCK BASS do you get what a mean he is not guy he is a womanizer, he is sexy and loves having sex with GIRLS, not guys!! :S


I thought it was funny when serena was planning lilys wedding with blair and all the other girls and she said somthing like, Come on new mean girls! I literally laughed out load!


ugh, i really dont like the new promos about chuck's gay kiss..
anyways, this episode was awesome..
definitely one of the best..


I love Chuck and Blair way too much for this to screw them up. They need to be together forever along with Serena and Nate. I have a feeling I'm going to have a lot of trouble with this whoole chuck basss kisses a guy. i don't really care what he does in the books. I didn't like it in the books and I don't like it in the show.


1. Rufus: I knew I let you kids watch the parent trap to many times. Hilarious:D
2. Definitely!
3. Dorota and Vanya are AWESOME.
4. Of course not, I'm stil on team dan/serena.
5. Olivia's screen name, was she like the first im-er??


1. I loved everything Georgina said... but my favorite was Dan talking to Vanessa, explaining "I nearly choked, she shoved the tongue right down my throat." Another one I liked was Chuck's "I'm sick of being your travel agent"
2. Yes, I think that was the best episode so far because the lack of Chair wasn't boring. And Georgina Sparks was back...
3. Dorota! That moment was about to come anytime, but I really laughed. I thought Blair called bootcamp or something, so Dorota and her boyfriend Vanya really surprised me. At the end of the episode I was already imagining them and Chuck and Blair working (scheming) together.
4. I have to say I do and I don't. It's complicated... he always seems like a liar, which he is but he is kind of good for the storyline.
5. Serena hiding at Eleanor's. Although I have to admit the "Olivia" screen name was lame. I understand no adults were at the wedding, it was postponoed and then it was at the loft. Ugh!
BONUS Q: Chuck's gay kiss! Eww. After watching the promo I can hardly concentrate on the other stuff... (I don't have anything against gays, but, hey! it's Chuck Bass we're talking about)
P.S: I loved the look Chuck gave Blair at the wedding. PURE LOVE.
I hope we get to know what happened to Georgina, and of courseto see more Dorota scheming!


Im def. going to miss Carter/Serena. And Im actually glad that Olivia is coming back cause Hilary wasn't too bad in 2x04. Bonus: I am wondering why they are letting Nate help Serena seeing as how he couldn't win a poker game in season 1...how is he going to help do it now.

Gossip Girl Season 3 Episode 5 Quotes

Chuck: Look, I love you, but just because Nate liking Bree doesn't make her a piranha. And Serena liking Carter doesn't make him a prince.
Blair: Where are you going? I have tension!

Chuck: Look ... I may loathe the guy, but he didn't have to own up to anything. I bought him a ticket out of town. He risked a lot, knowing Bree would be there. He must really care about you.
Serena: The girl he proposed to was a Buckley.
