Vanessa: When are you gonna realize that you were a better person until the day you asked Serena out four years ago?

Dan: Vanessa, seriously, this is none of your business.
Vanessa: You always wanted in. Maybe more than Jenny.

Vanessa: This could be the best satire on the Upper East Side since Bonfire of the Vanities. How long have you been working on this?

Dan: I had Charlie but she slipped away.
Vanessa: She's gotta be around here somewhere.
Georgina: I'm sorry. She's a part of the gang but I'm not?

Vanessa: And who's fault is that?

Vanessa: Yeah. Because she is.

Serena: Oh you don't need any help with that.
Vanessa: She said I manipulated her to ruin Rufus' business dinner. You're telling me that innocent cousin Charlie came up with that by herself?
Serena: I'm saying you probably did whatever she said you did. If Charlie's fighting back, good for her. She's learning.

Dan: They do say that sense of smell is most associated with memory.

Serena, you should be careful. His sister made me think she was someone else too.

Dan: What are you doing here? This is Serena's brother's birthday party. It's not okay for you to just show up here.
Vanessa: All I want to do is apologize for the part I played in what happened to her. I had no idea that that was Juliet's plan. And you know me, Dan. I would never be okay with things going that far.
Dan: Yeah, that's what my sister said before she did the right thing and came clean. You, on the other hand, pointed the finger at her and left town.

Let me see, writing a paper on Hannah Arendt? Or a secret mission that might help me clear my name. Let me grab my bag.
