As fans sound off in our forum on their favorite couples and story lines, our staff members gather each week to analyze the burning questions, funny quotes and other memorable moments from the best show on TV.</p> <p><b>Welcome to the Gossip Girl Insider Round Table!</b></p> <p>Topics from ">

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?

DANdy: During the classic Serena-Blair cat fight, Blair screamed "ow, my headband!" after Serena dared to focus her (hot!) might on Blair's band. I laughed out loud at Blair feeling the pain of her favorite accessory.

Mister Meester: Nate's question to Dan, "Do you ever get tired of carrying around that chip on your shoulder?" This is the kind of zinger he probably thought up months ago and was just waiting for the right moment to (anticlimactically) use.

Gossip Guy: It's tough, but I'll give it to when Chuck Bass told the guys of Skull & Bones that they may be the future world leaders, but Chuck Bass now owns them. He didn't even want to go to Yale. He just showed up for more power. What a guy. And so glad he didn't sell out Nate! Makes me want to be his best friend even more!

2. Worse Humphrey idea: Jenny being home schooled by Vanessa, or Dan becoming BFFs with Nate?

DANdy: No offense to Vanessa, or to baristas around the world, but home schooling so far has resulted in Vanessa earning a living by serving coffee. Letters of recommendation to one's self never look good on a resume.

Mister Meester: Dan and Nate as friends may not be likely, but it's not unrealistic. Nate's always been a nice guy and not enamored with his own social status. As for Jenny and Vanessa, give me a break - but props to the Gossip Girl writers for making V the boss of Rufus, further laying the foundation for their inevitable hookup.

Gossip Guy: Definitely Jenny being home schooled. You know why? The idea involved Vanessa. 'Nuff said.

3. More unrealistic: The Yale dean knowing/caring about Serena's rising socialite status, or half the Yale campus knowing/caring about Nate's dad?

Mister Meester: I'll give Yale a pass here, considering what Serena wore to her interview. Standards be damned! As for Nate's dad, even if you buy that he bilked the Skulls, how did they know Nate was going to be there? They're not the CIA.

Gossip Guy: Probably Yale caring about Serena. Making the assumption there's a lot of trust fund babies that lost their fortune that attend Yale isn't unrealistic. Yale caring about celebrity gossip? What's next, they're fighting to get LiLo or Britney Spears?

DANdy: The former. John Kerry, George W. Bush, Paul Newman and Edward Norton are among the famous graduates of Yale University. I don't exactly buy that Serena appearing once on Page Six would garner the dean's attention.

4. Blair or Serena: Who won Cat Fight of the Year 2008?

Gossip Guy: Isn't it whoever's wearing less clothing at the end of the fight is declared the loser? In which case I guess the loser would be Serena. But I would say the real winners were the audience. Everyone, pat yourself on the back. You got to witness the hottest catfight ever.

DANdy: I'm gonna give Serena the nod in a split decision, but we all know the actual answer: male viewers.

Mister Meester: Blair. She's giving up a good six inches and she hung tough! Then again, she was probably plotting - and just itching for a chance - to go after Serena.

Cat Fight!!!!!

5. What's your answer to the Dean's question?

Gossip Guy: If I was trying to get into Yale, I'd go with Blair's choice of George Whatshername. But since I'd be a little creepy and old to be attending undergrad again, I'll go with Chuck Bass. A night out on the town with him seems fun! I just wouldn't wear my favorite pair of shoes.

DANdy: Serena van der Woodsen.

Mister Meester: A trendy answer like, say, Barack Obama might impress the admissions department (you know how liberal academia can be), but personally I'd go with Blair Waldorf. So witty and catty, she's a hot dinner date you'd love to hate.
