Gossip Girl Season 5 Episode 23: "The Fugitives" Quotes
Blair: I mean the most important thing in a relationship is trust. After sex. And hygiene. And earning potential. Wait. What did you think I was going to say?
Serena: Ah... I mean, it's not important. Nowhere near as important as Dan and Italy and his trust issues. We should get coffee and you should tell me more about it.
Blair: Wait. Okay, using a very generous grading curve and rounding upâ€”because I like your outfitâ€”that lie was a C+ at best. What is going on?
Serena: Something I've been wanting to talk to you about for awhile now. I've been posting on Gossip Girl as Gossip Girl. For a couple of months now.
Blair: Guess what I found out this morning?
Serena: B, I know what you're going to say. But first I really want to tell youâ€”
Blair: Dan turned down the opportunity to spend the summer in Rome with the world's literary luminaries. And do you know why? Because he's scared of leaving me here with Chuck. Can you believe it?
Serena: Sort of.
Nate: I want you out of here. Today.
Diana: After all the fun we've had together?
Nate: What would people think if they knew about your side business?
Diana: Is that a threat? Because I am your main financial backer and we did sleep together. Sometimes right here in these very offices. So exposing me would only embarrass The Spectator. And you.
Nate: Then I'll find another way.
Blair: That was your agent. She wants you to reconsider the program in Rome. Which is odd, because you told me they went with someone else.
Dan: Ah, well, yesterday when you ended up with Chuck I was a little nervous about leaving for the whole summer. And I know you told me there were other people there and it was not romantic, but... come on. It's Chuck.
Blair: So you lied to me.
Dan: I figured you would just think I was some jealous freak if I told the truth.
Blair: Well maybe because you are. But you don't have to be. You have nothing to worry about. Take the offer. It's an amazing opportunity and I would never stand in the way of it.
Dan: It means the entire summer apart.
Blair: But it's not like I can't come visit. Rome is just two glasses of chardonnay away.
Chuck: So the car accident was real?
Bart: I was lucky to survive it. But it wasn't an accident. I'd been threatened.
Chuck: By who?
Bart: A very powerful competitor of mine. I had information on some transactions of his that could have put him away for a very long time. But his threats didn't work.
Chuck: They had someone ram your limo with a truck? Dad, You could have gone to the police. You didn't have toâ€”
Bart: Yes, I did. He'd made it quite clear that both you and Lily were fair game. Once I realized his threats weren't empty, the only way out was to make him think he'd already one. Once I got to the hospital tonight I figured that would be my best chance.
Chuck: So what, you just paid some doctors to switch off the machines? Hope Lily was crying so much that she wouldn't notice you were actually still breathing? What did we bury in that coffin?
Bart: Charles, I am here with you now, trying to explain.
