Gossip Girl: Couture and canapé are just another Saturday night until you add a mask. But preparing for a ball is an event in itself. Which is why queens invented handmaidens.
Serena: A masked ball? Dan would never want to go to something that pretentious. Where he has to wear a mask and a tux—
Blair: He likes you. He would wear a tux and a mask and one of my mother’s dresses if it meant that he could go out with you.
Dan: This thing happens in a matter of hours. The window for bold gestures is officially closed.
Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr): Big night out with over-privileged under-parented trust fund brats from your fancy school?
Dan: Yeah, the limo’s actually waiting back at the loft.
Vanessa: Good. We can egg it. Maybe slash the tires.
Blair: Is it a bong, mother? I didn’t take you for a stoner.
Blair: Why do you have to celebrate your Bendel’s deal by turning our penthouse into an opium den?
Eleanor (Margaret Colin): Why not?
Dan: I stole this mask from some drunken kid only to look like Robin.
Dan: Case of mistaken identity. Ironically… not involving masks.
Jenny about Dan: I think he’d go anywhere with you. Except for maybe the ice capades ’cause that really freaked him out when he was five.
Chuck: Little Jenny Humphrey manages to get my pants off and have me not enjoy it. Quite the accomplishment.
Vanessa: We can start slow. With the basics.
Dan: Like fewer lies, more Ukrainian food?
