Episode Quotes
Gossip Girl: (voiceover) Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today, in the face of this company, to watch this man and this woman totally F things up. Excuse me, while I pull out a hanky and pass it to S. and D. Looks like I'm not the only one who cries at weddings.

Blair: Humphrey you are a born liar!
Dan: Thanks, I think.
Blair: All that stuff about last night was genius. Anything you wanna tell me?
Dan: Uh, no. Like you said, just born to lie.

Blair: Looks like Nate isn't a fan of the fish, or his date.
Vanessa: Blair, I'm with Nate and you're at the singles table. Deal with it.
Blair: I just feel sorry for you. Dating an Archibald is a tortured process. The endless supply of family drama, the fact that he never really got over Serena. Though, falling for someone who's in love with Serena, you already know how that feels, don't you?

Amelia: What's this?
Chuck: I was hoping we could discuss what you have planned for my room.
Amelia: And who are you?
Chuck: I'm Chuck Bass.

Gossip Girl: (voiceover) They say a leopard can't change his spots. But some things do change. The path not taken can become a road trip. Being grounded can lead to something groundbreaking. And whether they're sweating it out on the sultry sidewalks or cooling their heels in the Hamptons, no one does summer like New Yorkers. Grab your shades and your sunblock. This one looks like a scorcher. Until next time. You know you love me. XOXO Gossip Girl.

Chuck: I'd like to propose a toast. My father is someone who goes after what he wants. And Lily van der Woodsen was no exception. In typical Bass-man fashion his pursuit was direct and at times not exactly subtle. One thing I learned from my father's courtship of Lily is the importance of perseverance. That in the face of true love you don't just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you to. One thing I learned from Lily is the importance of forgiveness. She gave my father the gift of a second chance and, in kind, I watched him become someone actually worthy of that gift. And one day I hope I'll be lucky enough to find someone who will do the same for me. To the happy couple!

Georgina: I never meant to get in between you two. I swear.
Dan: Please, it's okay.
Georgina: No, it's not. Because now she's upset.
Serena: Yeah I am. You manipulative, psycho bitch! You have been planning this this whole time.

Rufus: And here we go. Are you sure about this?
Lily: Ask me again and I'll change my mind.
Rufus: I love you, Lily.
Lily: I love you too, Rufus.

Serena: He's gone you can let go now.
Dan: I know, but I don't want to.
