Some stories open the door for something more. And then there are fairytale endings where the girl gets her prince. And endings that turn you introspective about your own life and your place in the world. And then there's the ending that you saw coming a mile away, and yet somehow still takes you by surprise. But don't worry, my Upper East Side friends. This story isn't ening. We're just at the start of a brand new chapter. XOXO —Gossip Girl.

Gossip Girl

Look, your reputation reflects directly on me. And frankly this book leaves yours in tatters. So prove to me I made the right choice hiring you. I want this book and you're going to get it for me. So whatever you did to Dan Humphrey, undo it, okay? You have a week.

Jane

Jane: I want this book.
Serena: Well here it is.
Jane: I want the movie rights to this book.

In literature, there are thousands of endings. Some happy, some sad. Some end with a twist.

Gossip Girl

Dan: Is everything okay?
Rufus: Well last night was your big night. I didn't want to ruin it for you.
Dan: Well it kind of went down on its own. What's going on? Did you not like the book?
Rufus: Of course I did, you're a beautiful writer. It just... broke my heart.
Dan: Dad.
Rufus: I gave up my career to raise you and I never regretted it, not once. Until yesterday when I read what you really think about it. A has-been turned trophy husband who married for money.
Dan: No, that is not what I think of you. You more than anybody should understand artistic license.
Rufus: I never expected to be your hero. I just didn't think I'd end up the fool.

Dan: Hey Dad.
Rufus: Your reviews. I guess you have a lot of reading to do today.

Chuck: Seems like I'm always off on my own.
Lily: I thought you liked it that way.
Chuck: I don't want to be the unrepentant bad boy, who no one cares lives or dies.
Lily: It's just a book, Charles.
Chuck: What if it isn't?
Lily: There are people who care so deeply about you, if you would just let them.
Chuck: Blair is lost to me.
Lily: I know. I'm sorry.

Blair: Louis—
Louis: Don't. I'm ashamed enough of my behavior. I know you have a complicated past, but you've been honest about it. It's hard for me. I want to believe, but every time I turn it seems there's another secret.
Blair: That night at Constance, you gave me a choice. And now I'm giving you one. Either you find a way to trust me, or you let me go.
Louis: I could never let you go.

Blair: I wish I was telling you this at a better time, but... I'm pregnant.
Serena: What? Oh my gosh, Blair! That's amazing. Wait, that's good news, right?
Blair: Well I was happy. So happy. But now, what if I'm in this alone.
Serena: No. You're not alone. Ever.

Seems Dan Humphrey is on the fast track from Lonely Boy to Only Boy.

Gossip Girl

Dan: If you can't tell the difference between what I did to Blair and what I did to you, then maybe your portrayal in the book is more accurate than you thought.
Serena: That sounds exactly like something Dylan Hunter would say.

Dan: I'm sorry you're not hurt.
Serena: No, not hurt. Mystified. In high school, you were the only one who saw me for who I really was. Or who I wanted to be. You helped me be somebody that I was more proud of.
Dan: I didn't know.

Gossip Girl Season 5 Episode 4 Quotes

Alessandra: They're coming tonight, right?
Dan: To the book party? No. I haven't exactly mentioned it to them yet. But I'd have to tell them the book exists first.
Alessandra: They don't know? Not any of them?
Dan: No. I'm not sure they're going to like it when they find out.
Alessandra: If they're really your friends they'll be happy to see your star rise. And they should be at the soirée tonight. When everybody learns that Anonymous is actually Daniel Humphrey.

Dan: Quick question: how big can my head get before it explodes?
