Rufus: I have a right to know my son.
Lily: And he has a right to his own life. Just like you've had yours.
Rufus: I was going to be a rock star, remember? Instead I had two kids. And I was there to take them to school every morning and talk about their days at night. And if someone came to me and said I could trade that for the life I wanted when I was nineteen, I wouldn't. Being a father's who I am. Don't take that away.
Lily: I'm sorry, I can't.
Rufus: Then I'll find him without your help.

Dan: Oh, Dad. We were just, um... we're busted.
Rufus: I don't like the two of you being alone here when I'm not.
Dan: You're kidding, right?
Rufus: This is my home and I would appreciate it if you respected that.

Cece: I gave her a chance to tell you. She didn't take it. In fact, she asked me to pay a lot of money to make the problem go away.
Rufus: But you didn't do that, did you?
Cece: The real problem is that she's in love with you.
Rufus: Why is that a problem?
Cece: Because so long as she holds on to this, the two of you don't have a chance in hell of making this work. I want you to have this chance. Don't you?

Lily: I'm sorry we haven't spoken since the Ball. I really appreciate your messages.
Rufus: All I want to say is that I'm here. If you want me to keep my distance I can do that too. I um, can't imagine what you're going through.
Lily: Actually you can better than anyone else can. Everyone's so concerned about the grieving widow. But as much as I feel shock and loss, mostly I feel guilt.

Lil, I'm waiting for you this time. Six months, six years. I'll be here.

I just have one question. Was it a boy or a girl?

Rufus: Aaron, what are you doing here.
Aaron: I live right around the corner, I'm just picking something up to take to ...
Dan: It's alright. I can hear her name.

Rufus: I miss her a lot.
Dan: You know, in all the arguments you two have had, I haven't once heard you tell her that.
Rufus: Oh my God, you're right.
Dan: That's not ... that rare is it?

Dan: You okay with it? Jenny not being with us tonight?
Rufus: If by okay you mean extraordinarily depressed, then yes.

[to Vanessa] He's not still reading one of those Dan and Serena should-be-or-shouldn't-be threads is he?

Jenny: What about you, Dad? You were the one on the great American road trip? Any good stories?
Rufus: Oh, well, there's no place like home.
Dan: That's profound.

Rufus: Does this place actually serve coffee, or what?
Vanessa: Yes, it does!

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.
