Gossip Girl Season 4 Episode 15: "It-Girl Happened One Night" Quotes
The Bass name has equity. I'd like the chance to prove that. All in one night. Tomorrow, to be exact. I've leased a landmark mansion outside the city. It's a destination. You travel to get there and the reservations are made before.Chuck
Blair: Because I need to do a story on Raina for the magazine tomorrow night.
Serena: Okay, well why don't you just ask her yourself. After the Chuck thing doesn't she owe you a favor?
Blair: Yes, but she's not answering her phone and I can't leave the office. Besides it's better this way. Just two It Girls talking. Explain that you'll do the profile yourself.
Serena: Right. Because this is all just a favor to me and not a convoluted way for you to keep your eye on Raina and Chuck during Valentine's Day?
Blair: Hmm. I hadn't thought of that. Thank you!
Blair: How well do you know Raina Thorpe?
Serena: Um, not at all.
Blair: Do you know where she is right now?
Serena: I'm guessing you do.
Blair: At your house.
Serena: Where my mother lives.
Editor: Our inaugural It-Girl has to be special. As should her Valentine's plans. Blair, you're friends with Serena van der Woodsen?
Blair: Yes, well, Serena definitely is "It", but what if there was someone fabulous that we could break ourselves? Someone like Raina Thorpe.
Editor: Daughter of Russell. I like it. Keep going.
Blair: Well she's typically shy of publicity, which makes her an even bigger get. So if I could come throughâ€”
Editor: I'd recommend Stefano consider your trial period over.
Ben: I don't know about the cater waiter me, but the teacher me thinks maybe you should step out from behind the computer and find out who the new Epperley is. Give her the article in person.
Dan: Hm. The new Epperley. I hadn't thought about that.
Ben: It's a good thing Serena and I decided not to do anything for Valentine's Day. I can't afford to take her out anyway.
Dan: Well you already read how awkward I feel about this, but, um, with me she was always happy to just play pool and drink beer.
Ben: Right now I couldn't even afford to do that.
Dan: Ah, well. You know when I used to work for a catering company. They could always use an extra hand around a holiday. I could make a call. It's good money. And no offense, but judging from my past co-workers I think they have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy regarding felons.
Dan: How's the job search going?
Ben: Having to check the "Have you ever committed a felony?" box kind of limits my options. But yours seem to be improving. I'm sorry if I overstepped, the article was just sitting there. Being single while living with a guy seeing your ex. You really nailed the awkwardness.
Dan: Yeah, well, it's very fresh.
Lily: Well, I hope hosting this brunch proves to you once and for all I have the company's best interests at heart.
Chuck: And also elegantly forces the enemy to come to you.
Lily: Yes. Sun-Tzu is right beside Emily Post on my bookshelf.
Raina: I'm glad you agreed to this brunch with Chuck and Lily. It shows a lot of good faith on their part. I mean we came in with guns blazing and they responded with an olive branch.
Russell: More like olive bread. I agreed to a meal, Raina. That's it. I don't trust the Basses.
Blair: And what about you and Ben? It must be very special for him spending Valentine's Day with someone other than his cellie.
Serena: We decided to sit it out too. We just started dating. It's too much pressure. Hey, why don't you and I have a Friends Valentine's Day? Manis, macaroons, massages?
Serena: I thought you reached out to Raina and told her that Chuck's feelings were real.
Blair: He needed to get back in her good graces and I knew exactly how to get him there. Chuck and I may some need time to forge our own paths before we risk a romantic rejoining, but we're still there for each other.
Serena: Are you sure you're not just burying yourself in work to avoid thinking about tomorrow?
Blair: Tomorrow? I don't even know what day today is. Last year, Chuck and I honored Valentine's Day by staging our very own Bacchanal. And no, there were no goats, if that's the look that just fluttered across your face.
