Blair: Heading home to Brooklyn?
Dan: No, actually. I was gonna catch Monsieur Hulot's Holiday at the Walter Reed. Try to cheer myself up.
Blair: Oh. Well I do enjoy myself some Tati. Although I suppose if you're trying to improve your mood that my coming with you would defeat that purpose.

Dan: Works for me. It keeps your paws off my popcorn.
Serena: I don't mean to take you for granted. It's just, if we're being completely honest...

Dan: And I never will. If you really need me, ever, I am there.
Serena: I would say I'm sorry about today, but in my head that just sounds inadequate.
Dan: Ah, you don't need to apologize. It's not your fault that I seem to drop everything just to make myself available to you.
Eleanor: Well if only there was a person who did that for a living. Someone to aspire to. There is.

Blair: If only he'd been buried in it.
