Gossip Girl Season 1: Share Your Favorite Moments!

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl Season One. The year that started it all.

In honor of the repeats airing for the first time on the Style network, and the final season airing this fall on the CW, we're taking a look back at the show that's given us so many memories over the years.

Most of them good!

Look at Victrola

Gossip Girl Season 1 tells the story of Serena's return to the UES following her mysterious disappearance to boarding school in Connecticut, an event the Season 5 finale paid homage to this past May.

It also introduced the soon-to-be-epic courtship of Chuck and Blair, along with scandals, hookups and backstabbing truly worthy of "OMFG" posters, yet plenty of tender moments to balance it out.

Dan and Serena found romance between worlds. Rufus and Lily grew close, forever bonded by a shared past. Little J struggled to fit in. Queen B and her headlines ran the show - and her minions ragged.

  • First Date
  • All Over Each Other

Gossip Girl was designated by New York Magazine as the "Best. Show. Ever." It wasn't a stretch. Edgy yet fun, and cutting-edge with its incorporation of new media, it became a phenomenon.

The humor, drama and sexual tension of this first season made it the ultimate guilty pleasure, no matter which couple you were rooting for or against. We can all agree on that much, right?

What's your best memory of Gossip Girl Season 1? Share it with us below as we look back at the series we love and gear up for its swan song (see TVF's Gossip Girl spoilers for all the latest) October 8!

Gosh, the allure and awesomeness of Gossip Girl S1 can't really be explained in words, can it?
Personal highlights were:
Victor/Victrola strip tease and ensuing limo scene
16 candles on the terrace
The scene at the club in episode 4 with Dan, Jenny the drunk guy and 'Claire'.
The opening scene in episode 7 with the swimming pool.
All things Nelly Yuki.
The song 'Ice was getting Thinner' in the season finale.
Lastly of course, the headbands and purple scarf...

I'm rewatching season 1 and had to laugh when B said to Dan at Bart Bass's brunch " just thought you should know before you fell head over heals for your perfect girl and her perfect world only to be left alone with nothing more than your cabbage patch" Who would of thought she would have been talking about herself five years later.

there are a lot of great moments... the opening scene with S returning. Serena and Nate first look at each other when she comes back. Blair and Serena on the step of the Met. Chuck in general haha Blair in general too.. And ofc their first time together in the limo,The whole thanksgiving episode because it showed us Lily as a good mother [that kinda changed] Jenny being the good Jenny, Dan and Serena when they went out for the first time,the sleepover .. the entire cotillion and Dan and Serena's amazing kiss.. Serena and Nate's first time Serena and Blair , in their impromptu photoshoot at the end of "Bad News Blair".Georgina ,Rufus and Lily and their amazing chemistry.. God what happened to them..also Serena and Dan's first night together the friendship between S and B.. which they ruined.. completely.. Gossip girl actually narrating and being an actual part of the show.,Serena's smile and laugh....other things.. the great soundtrack...the first season was amazing sexy full of drama takedown backstabbing romance friendship... the second was good and it went downhill from there.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
