Whoa. What a difference a week makes. Last week, there was nothing funny spoken for an entire two hours. Which is strange because the show was only, like, forty-five minutes long. So, we were thrilled with the melange of real talk, accidental hilarity, and perfectly timed zingers on Season 6, Episode 5: “Monstrous Ball.”  

10. Product placements always hold up to the test of time.
Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) : “There’s no Viagra for a career that’s gone soft.”

9. We get it. You’re young. Serena’s young. Comedy.
Sage (Sophia Black-D’Elia): “So much for me being the only teenager on my father’s arm tonight.”

8. Says Lily van der Woodsen, guys.
Lily (Kelly Rutherford): “Let’s face it, Serena. You don’t have boyfriends. You have life rafts.”

7. Sometimes we can’t tell if he’s trying to be funny or not. Which is funny.
Nate (Chace Crawford): “Well, her dad doesn’t usually come up in conversations. Could it be that Steven hooked up with your mom in a dungeon in grade school?”

6. Touche, Chuck.
Chuck (Ed Westwick): “What is your interest?”
Ivy (Kaylee DeFer): “To get Lily to leave me alone.”
Chuck: “May I suggest you stop following her around in cabs?”

5. Save feminism for the olds, right guys?
Serena (Blake Lively): “I should probably go get a manicure so my hands look perfect.”

4. Yeah, because then this show might be more amusing.
Blair (Leighton Meester): “Unfortunately, kids today aren’t like us.”

3. Did we hear that right?
Chuck: “Well, I hope your third time coming out is the charm.”

2. Real talk, party of one.
Dan (Penn Badgley): “You ended up with no one. Chuck will never finish fighting with his father. And that ring around your neck will never be on your finger.”

1. We’ll accept that.
Blair: “Serena’s enthusiasm is like the bat signal for bad ideas.”

Bonus: Apparently Rufus was watching a different show than we were.
Rufus (Matthew Settle): “I’m not so sure about that. Money caused all my problems with Lily.”
