Gossip Girl: We all wear different masks for different reasons.
Diana: Nate, you matter to me. A lot. I was just trying to be cool. You know that's my thing. Although I'm beginning to see I may need a new thing. From now on, equals.

Nate

Dorota

Seems the play's the thing tonight. But watch out, players. You might be the ones getting played.
