Gossip Girl Season 1 Episode 10: "Hi, Society" Quotes
Blair: Carter Baizen is on his way here, right now.
Chuck: What? What the hell are you doing with Carter Baizen?
Blair: He left his jacket here yesterday and I'd rather you be gone when he gets here. There's been enough scenes for today.
Blair: What was that?
Chuck: I should ask you the same question. Perfect gentleman? Perfect date? That broken record was a hit last year. Get with the times, he bores you.
Blair: You almost made a fool of me in front of the New York Times. Which proves my very point; you can't be trusted. Nate is a gentleman; he would never cause a scene.
Chuck: Never get your blood going, either.
Rufus: Your money was no good for me, then... and it's still no good with me now. And you can rest assured that my son, like me, can't be bought.
CeCe: And I can assure you that just like her mother, my granddaughter can be.
Rufus: What do you mean?
CeCe: All those years ago, I told Lily to choose between you and her inheritance. I'd tell the end of that story, but I think you know it by heart.
I am willing to purchase all the paintings in this gallery in exchange of you convincing your son not to accompany Serena. Before you answer, remember a grown man with children is in a very different position than a young man. Money could be useful now, not to mention how much this sale would mean to your wife's career as an artist.CeCe
CeCe: It appears that your son is taking my granddaughter to the ball, tonight.
Rufus: He is?
CeCe: I'd rather see that not happen. There's a point in being presented properly and you're Daniel is not a proper companion for a girl like Serena. He's a ... temporary distraction. I need her to focus for the future.
Rufus: Hers or yours?
CeCe: So, I see it's true what they say about the apple and the tree.
Rufus: Hello, Celia. I'd say "It's nice to see you," but, I know how you hate dishonesty.
Dan: I thought I'd get grounded when you found out, just like Jenny was. But, I gotta admit, it would be worth it.
Rufus: I don't mind, at all. Tux looks great. Shoes look great. You look so great, you're gonna make me proud. Show that Celia Rhodes what us Humphrey men are made of.
Dan: What's going on, Dad? You're doing that thing again where you act really weird for no reason. It's kinda freaking me out.
Rufus: Little over-dressed for an art show, don't you think?
Dan: Dad, listen, um, I've been meaning to tell you. I'm sorry.
Rufus: Don't worry about your mom, I'll take care of it.
Dan: You don't mind?
Serena: Where are you going with this, Dan?
Dan: She came by my dad's gallery today.
Serena: Well, she probably just wanted to see your mom's art.
Dan: No, she was trying to buy him off so I wouldn't go with you tonight.
Serena: No. She wouldn't do something like that.
Dan: That's what I'm trying to tell you. That woman is the most manipulative person that I've ever met. She makes your mother look like Gandhi.
Serena: That's my grandmother you're talking about. I love her.
Dan: I know, and I'm so sorry. But, maybe you love her so much that you can't see what she's doing. I said it. There.
Serena: Maybe we shouldn't be doing this.
Dan: Maybe we shouldn't.
Serena: You're early.
Dan: Yeah, we need to talk.
Serena: What's up?
Dan: Is your grandmother here? Where is she?
Serena: Oh, yeah. She's in the other room, getting ready with my mom. Why?
Dan: I gotta be honest about something here. I don't think you're grandmother is who you think she is.
Serena: What are you talking about?
Dan: I know she got the whole free-spirit act perfected...
Dan: But I don't think she has your best interests at heart.
Carter: Nate. Look, I was hoping to see you, I wanted to apologize, put the past behind the past.
Nate: You don't get to say what goes on here. I'm on to you.
Man, I have to find out if she's seen someone, it's killing me.Nate
