As fans sound off in our It's a Wonderful Lie" include memorable quotes and fashion statements, couples we love and others we don't, and Lily's mysterious secret ...


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

DANdy: Gotta give it to B's posse member for the dis and V for the retort: Penelope: "Oh, hello, weird documentary girl." Vanessa: "Oh, hello, sad Blair wannabe." Snap!

Mister Meester: Dorota telling Blair she was examining possible dates via Facebook. LOL. First the Britney Spears ringtone, now this! Who knew Dorota was so hip?

Gossip Guy: Sorry, Chuck. It looks like my quote goes to Dan for two round tables in a row! When Serena said that she thought sex was meaningful to Dan, he responded with "It is, especially when I haven't had it in awhile." It had me laughing out loud! Though Dorota, some of your quotes put you a close second!

2. At the ball, whose moments tugged at your heartstrings the most: Dan and Serena, Rufus and Lily, or Blair and Chuck?

DANdy: Can there be any doubt? No offense to Lufus or Derena, but watching Chair's scheming and witty, sexy courtship is the unquestioned highlight of the series.

Mister Meester: When Rufus said he was afraid to tell Lily how he felt, and she longed to hear it, their faces said more than words ever could. We all love the antics of the Upper East Side teens, but these two are the heart and soul of the series.

Gossip Guy: Oh, I definitely have to give this one to Derena. OMG it got really dusty in the room when they both talked about their first time being the greatest night in their lives. Will you two just shut up already and get back together?!? I don't know how much more I can handle of this.

3. Best Gossip Girl fashion statement: Serena's ball gown, Chuck's sparkly tuxedo, the see-through dresses, or Nate's bangs (sorry)?

Mister Meester: A sparkly tuxedo and striped bow tie? Really? That's beyond ridiculous, even for Chuck Bass. Yet somehow completely in character.

Gossip Guy: I'm sorry, I was too busy staring at Serena's boobs to notice there were other characters on the show.

DANdy: The see-through dress, because 1. Isabel probably wasted $1,000 on hers, 2. It wasn't that revealing, especially compared to anything Serena wears, yet it was a major focal point of the episode, and 3. Vanessa has a great body, who knew? No wonder Nate wanted to take her somewhere with a little backlighting, at least.

4. Did Nate make the right decision?

Gossip Guy: Really? You're asking me if Nate choosing Vanessa was the right choice? Seriously? I don't think anyone choosing Vanessa for anything short of "who should leave the show?" is the right choice. Nate, have you looked in the mirror lately? You're pretty. Why are you with Vanessa? Have you looked at her recently? 'Nuff said.

DANdy: Yes, if for no other reason than not risking a prison term as he might with Jenny Humphrey. Nate and Vanessa have little in common, but he is an attractive fellow, and you know she secretly longs to be part of the Upper East Side world.

Mister Meester: I actually think Nate has better chemistry with Vanessa than with Jenny, and that he came around for the right reasons - he saw Vanessa show maturity by owning up to stealing the card, while J, conversely, took out her frustrations with a terrible stunt. I'm curious to see where the NV relationship goes!

5. What happened with Lily in the institution that Bart's PI discovered?

Gossip Guy: The better question is, with Bart and the PI getting into a crash, will we ever find out?

DANdy: The promo for next week shows a pissed-off Chuck confronting Lily, and (I think) hints that he is going to sell information about her to the highest bidder. What could generate that kind of interest - from Chuck or from a buyer?

Mister Meester: If the man said Bart "is gonna want to hear" this, and he already knows so much, it's gotta be big. An abortion wouldn't warrant shock - Bart already has a gay stepson now. My guess is either that Rufus the father of Eric, or Rufus and Lily have another love child who will be revealed later.
