GOSSIP GIRL (Southern Gentleman Prefer Blondes)

  • Why am I always wondering how long it’s been since the last episode?  Why can’t they make it clear?
  • Q1: “You know how I feel about ironic facial hair.”–Blair
  • Wow, Nate is still into pot?  That’s just…great.
  • Blair’s subway aversion not surprising in the slightest.  Nate used to be weirded out, too, before Vanessa.
  • Q2: “I’m stimulating the economy by rewarding my kids.”–Rufus
  • The gallery will be giving Rufus tons of money?  Interesting…
  • That ring is pretty ugly.  Don’t know why Dan and Jenny are surprised, though.  They had to see this coming sooner or later.
  • Q3: “Rats go underground.  Not Waldorfs.”–Blair
  • Serena says Gabriel is perfect but he’s a flake.  Yeah, that’s real perfect…
  • And they didn’t get married, so why is she back to saying they did?
  • Can’t believe Chuck is willing to talk about Blair with Nate.  So awkward.
  • Q4: “Archibald, let’s face it.  You won, I lost.  You have nothing to worry about with me.”–Chuck
  • Can’t believe we’re actually seeing Chuck play a sport!
  • Really don’t like Gabriel’s voice.
  • Cute that Gabriel and Serena are hanging with Lily and Rufus.
  • Q5: “It’s a movie.  Most of them are only like 80 minutes these days.”–Serena
  • Guess Blair is just triyng to be a good friend.
  • Q6: “I’m gonna find out where he’s poofing to.”–Blair
  • Wow, Gabriel is stupid enough to get with Poppy right outside Serena’s apartment building?
  • Ack! What is Gabriel about to tell Serena?
  • Understand why Nate’s jealous.
  • Gabriel “confesses” about seeing Poppy.  Is this the true story or lies?
  • And he’s already “falling in love” with Serena??
  • Who is Serena referring to when she said she’s already done the “two girlfriend thing”?
  • Vanessa’s back.  Joy.
  • And what does she want to say?
  • Q7: “There’s really zero chance of Serena and I ever getting back together.”–Dan
  • Gallery deal going wrong?
  • Q8: “Gabriel is still popping Poppy and you’re okay with that?”–Blair
  • What is the “amazing connection” they have?  I don’t see it.
  • Georgina mention.
  • Not a smart move for Serena to bring up her past with Nate just to make a point.
  • Q9: “He’s having her cake and eating yours, too.”–Blair about Gabriel
  • Yup, gallery sale not happening.  Why was Rufus so sure before if there weren’t even any offers?
  • So weird when he opens up to Vanessa, of all people.
  • Interesting choice to re-incorporate his music career into the storyline.
  • Nice that Nate’s serious about his relationship with Blair.  But is it for the right reasons?
  • Really like these tense Chuck-Nate conversations.
  • Q10: “It’s no big deal.” “With you two, it’s always a big deal.”–Chuck and Nate
  • Q11: “If you need to mark your territory so badly, why don’t you just pee on her?”–Chuck
  • Q12: “I don’t want you to go near her again.”–Nate
  • Guess I can understand Nate’s concerns given the past.  And it’s not even like Chuck and Blair ever had a friendship.  Just more.
  • Why is Blair calling Chuck?  Is she really, or is he just saying that?
  • Guess she really did call!  Interesting!  I can see why she’s going to him for help.  He has connections, and obviously has an interest in Serena.
  • Q13: “Queen of hearts or queen or heartache?  Careful B.  Cut the head off one love triangle and yours might just grow back in its place.”–Gossip Girl
  • Serena’s outfit looks pretty slutty.
  • Planned Serena-Gabriel-Poppy meeting.  This will be interesting.
  • So is Poppy really upset?  Or pretending?
  • Q14: “Serena didn’t steal me.  She swept me away.”–Gabriel
  • Did Vanessa buy that beer?  She’s underage!
  • Ah, Vanessa wanted to confess to sleeping with Chuck.  Twice.
  • Georgina mention number two.
  • Why is Eric out of town?
  • Jenny’s voice sounds different.
  • Hmmm.  Wonder who Gabriel is talking to.
  • Really doesn’t make sense that Gabriel is genuinely interested in some high school girl.  Of course there’s an ulterior motive.
  • Q15: “Without you, how will all the African girls send in posts to Gossip Girl?”–Serena
  • Q16: “Our board rejected Bernie Madoff 5 times.”–Serena
  • Was Gabriel planning to rope Serena and her money in all along?
  • Georgina mention number three.
  • Q17: “I thought there was a Mets game.  I saw Dorota wearing her hat.”–Blair (Um, go Yankees!)
  • Nate wants them to live together!
  • And of course Chuck gets in the middle.
  • So Gabriel didn’t really meet Serena that night?  Maybe I should rewatch the episode to see what actually happened.
  • This won’t end well for Lily, I’m sure.
  • Guess Blair is choosing to go with Chuck.  Where’d Nate go?
  • Q18: “Just face it, you two.  You’re using this as an excuse to get back together.  I’m going back to my boyfriend right now.  If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go back to yours.”–Serena to Chuck and Blair
  • So no money/no gallery sale = no Yale?
  • Wonder if this will lead to a drunken Dan-Vanessa hookup.
  • Like the incorporation of the real-life economic situation.
  • Bush dig!  Those haven’t gotten old yet.
  • Can’t believe these people are making business deals so quickly.
  • Rufus will probably end up regretting this.  Surprised Gabriel tried to steer him away.  That says something about his character, too.
  • Nate should just go with Chuck and Blair so he can see things for himself.
  • How’d Chuck find out where Georgina is so fast?
  • Visiting hours obviously aren’t going to be late at night, so why do they need to go now?  Where is this place?
  • Ah!  Blair and Chuck are holding hands!
  • Did they really need to wait there all night?  I’m sure not…
  • Pelosi did not really necessary.  And Blair looks fine.
  • Was Chuck planning to go alone all along?
  • Aha!  He was!  Figures.
  • And he’s making good points.  But is willing to risk his friendship with Nate again.  Hmmm.
  • Q19: “We all know your weakness for limos.”–Chuck
  • What is this place??
  • Hahahaha. Chuck just asked the same thing!
  • And here’s Georgina!
  • Um, did Serena and Gabriel sleep together at Lily’s or are they somewhere else?
  • Serena’s testing him.  Interesting.
  • It’s a Jesus camp!
  • Wonder if Georgina really has changed or if it’s an act or if it just naturally won’t last.
  • Shoutout for The Hills.
  • There’s Poppy!  So it was an act!
  • Weird that she doesn’t mind Gabriel sleeping with Serena.
  • At least Serena is now realing something’s up.
  • Ha! Blair took the limo, stranding Chuck!
  • Rufus, don’t make the investment!  You’ll get screwed!
  • Blair clearly affected by Chuck.
  • Again, don’t blame Nate for being concerned.
  • Blair didn’t say ‘I love you’ back to him!
  • Gabriel took off!
  • And I assume Poppy is acting again.
  • Wow, Dan and Jenny have enough savings to buy that ring?
  • Aw, Rufus has his heart set on getting that money.  This won’t be good.
  • Georgina set on edge at the mention of Blair.  Hmmm.
  • Georgina’s just allowed to leave the camp?
  • Promo: Everyone versus Poppy, with help from Georgina.

ONE TREE HILL (A Kiss to Build a Dream On)

  • Paper airplanes are pretty random.
  • Woah!  These are pages from Luke’s book!  Totally uncalled for!
  • Peyton’s hair is pretty hilar.
  • Nice to know the B. Davis magazine still exists.  Love that it’s such an InStyle knock-off.  Guess this cover is announcing Brooke and Victoria’s partnership.
  • I like pregnant Peyton.  She’s funny.
  • Ugh, why is Sam with Victoria?
  • Really not good of Brooke to trash-talk in front of Sam.
  • Q1: “Do you have to be such a bitch?”–Brooke to Victoria
  • Didn’t know Sam’s last name before.  Samantha Walker.
  • Q2: “Baby is kicking baby-growing ass.”–Peyton
  • Selling her songs would be a good way for Haley to make money and stay in Tree Hill.
  • Why is Devon back?  So over all these basketball storylines.
  • Of course Victoria is reading mail that isn’t hers.  And it’s a letter from Sam’s real mom! And she’s shredding it!
  • Birth mom’s name: Rebecca Dennis.
  • How many times can we watch Mia record?  It’s nice to hear but it’s filler that takes away from good dialogue.
  • Can’t believe Sam and Victoria are talking about Brooke when she’s just a few feet away.
  • Q3: “I hear bonding.  Back away from the innocent, Victoria.”–Brooke
  • I wonder if the store will re-open or just be Brooke’s office.
  • Q4: “Good kissing inspires good singing.”–Mia
  • So random for Peyton to bring up kissing Chase.
  • Oops, Mia didn’t know Brooke was Chase’s first.
  • Yes!  Skills with the kids!
  • Dates? And a dance?  They’re like 5!
  • Always amazed by Jamie’s shooting skills.
  • So is Lucas pretty much unemployed right now?
  • Cure ticket leads to flashback.
  • So obvious they just filmed this–CMM has same hairstyle as now and Hilarie is wearing a terrible wig.
  • Q5: “You’re gonna get into a helluva lot more than a concert with these tickets.”–Peyton to Lucas
  • We all know Nathan won’t take the European offer in the end.
  • Q6: “How sad is my life that my only friends are a five-year-old and a foster granny?”–Sam
  • Sam should be smart enough to see that Victoria probably has ulterior motives.  But I guess she’s vulnerable, too.
  • LOL Peyton Sawyer Debacle
  • Do stores really lose millions each year from shoplifting?
  • Q7: “Theft is common.  We don’t do common.”–Victoria
  • Q8: “Well, find another way to get high.”  “Okay, your words.”–Victoria and Sam
  • Q9: “Nice day for carrot sticks.  Speaking of the dance, do you want to go with me?”–Jamie
  • Ouch!  Chuck got to Madison is first!  Only 5 and already back-stabbing!
  • Q10: “Welcome to Tree Hill.  I challenge you to find a boy that didn’t lose his virginity to Brooke Davis.”–Haley to Mia (Here’s three: Nathan, Skills, Mouth!)
  • Mia’s not the first person to have a Brooke Davis inferiority complex.
  • Like the reference to Nathan’s past with Taylor.
  • Another flashback.
  • Really can’t stand that awful wig.
  • Q11: “Maybe you would’ve studied more rather than making out with me in the backseat of this car.”  “No way.  I got an A+ in backseat.”–Lucas and Peyton
  • Woah!  Peyton was responsible for getting The Unkindness of Ravens published!  Wow.  That adds a whole new meaning to that storyline.
  • Q12: “Someone once told me your art matters.  And I wonder who that was.”–Peyton to Lucas
  • Q13: “No bagging on Brooke.  It’s my friendship-with-the-devil deal-breaker.”–Sam to Victoria
  • Saleslady’s face is very alien-like.
  • Ack!  Brooke didn’t know they were hanging out.
  • LOL Tree Hill Shopping-palooza.
  • So Brooke’s probably is actually that she’s jealous.
  • Coach Bobby really isn’t considering the family impact of going to Europe.
  • Here’s Nick Lachey!
  • Wonder how he’d sound singing Haley’s song.
  • Also wonder if the song really was written by Bethany Joy Galeotti and will really be on his record.
  • Haley really isn’t giving a reason for saying no.
  • Highly doubt that Jamie’s a fan of him.
  • Love this flashback talking about Naley and Jamie.  Really nice to see what supposedly happened after the season 4 finale.
  • Really hope Skills and Jamie are drinking root beer.
  • Q14: “My first dance, I walked in Antwon but walked out Skills.”–Skills to Jamie
  • LOL I love them in their suits.  Kind of surprised Skills is allowed at the dance.
  • The dance scenes are really too cute!
  • Oops, guess the letter didn’t make it through the shredder.
  • LOL Peyton sitting with the panda bear.
  • Am I the only one that likes just staying home?
  • Dining and dashing is really pretty silly.  And it’s weird to make it a “dare” since that was Felix and Brooke’s thing.
  • Lauren looks really pretty.
  • Q15: “He looked just like a little Lucas!”–Haley about Kamie
  • Wow.  Nathan just  came right out with it.  Didn’t bother to soften the blow at all.
  • Interesting point: is there a difference between a fantasy and a dream?
  • Chase is back on-screen.
  • LOL Figures Nick “knows” Brooke.
  • Mia is really overreacting.
  • Would love to see Nick and Brooke hookup!
  • Q16: “You really outbitched yourself this time.”–Brooke to Victoria
  • Q17: “Are you kiddng or am I being punk’d?”–Brooke to Victoria
  • Brooke is REALLY pissed.
  • Here’s the required Nick Lachey performance.
  • Did we see Haley sing this song before? I don’t remember…
  • Glad they didn’t drag out the basketball story.
  • Nice to see Nathan’s custom sneakers again.  I like when they bring stuff back.
  • Woah!  Lauren, kidding or not, was just way too forward!
  • How did Sam’s birth mom know where to send the letter? And has she been sending more than one?  And has Victoria been intercepting them?
  • How did Sam find out who her mom was and where she worked?
  • Interesting that Brooke didn’t reveal what Victoria did.
  • Brooke shouldn’t guess what her mom would say but I’m glad she’s encouraging a meeting instead of feeling threatened.
  • Really don’t get why Chase is apologizing.  Really don’t think it’s necessary.
  • I absolutely think Chase loved Brooke.  Let’s not rewrite history.
  • These little kids are soo cute.
  • Really didn’t need that Devon scene.  We all understood what was going to happen.
  • Um, is Nathan naked?
  • And how come Haley isn’t sharing about her day with Nick Lachey?
  • I thought Sam’s mom was blonde when we saw her in an earlier episode…
  • Oh, they never even went to The Cure concert?!  What happened?
  • Oh, I get it!  They lost the other ticket with the waitress.
  • Q18: “I’m gonna miss you.”  “You better.  ‘Cause I got a lot of dreams wrapped up in you.”–Lucas and Peyton
  • Interesting that they discussed marriage this far back.  Again, this adds so much more to the proposal storyline from last season.  Luke’s proposal really didn’t come out of nowhere!  Really have more sympathic for him now.
  • No Dan or Deb.  Can’t believe they’ve just dropped the Dan heart storyline.
  • Promo: Brooke wants to adopt Sam.  Peyton wants to get married.  Skills is trying to see Lauren.
