Applause to the Gossip Girl writers: Snappy lines are the main reason we tune in each week, and Season 5, Episode 23: “The Fugitives” did not disappoint. Keep the Bassness — and Blair sassiness — coming!

10. Or, in Dan’s case, two jars of kombucha away
Blair [to Dan]: “Rome is just two glasses of Chardonnay away.”

9. Guilt trips are worth more than designer shoes on the Upper East Side
Blair [to Serena]: “You think I’m cashing in your Gossip Girl guilt trip on some overpriced eye cream?”

8. Unless that babysitter’s initials are B.W.
Chuck: “I don’t need a babysitter.”

7.  Did someone call for a babysitter?...
Blair [to Serena]: “Text me what Chuck’s mood is like when they leave, that way I know if I’m needed.”

6. Blair prefers a summer vacation with which to wash the Brooklyn down
Serena: “Rome in the summer sounds like a dream.”
Blair: “Not for the Romans; [the city] will be crawling with Americans.”

5. Yes, Dorota’s hilarious forced smile face is the punchline here
Dan [to fellowship interviewer]: “What says Italy better than Gelato?”
*Insert: Dorota’s hilarious forced smile face*

4. So... does Serena consider herself the “Jennifer” in this scenario?
Serena [acting as Blair to interviewer]: “We’re meant to be. Like Brad and Angelina — once they got rid of Jennifer.”

3. The girl’s got a Cipher Slide so... what do YOU think?
Blair: “You think this is the first time I’ve entrapped someone with prostitutes?”

2. We really wish “a good haircut” was on that list, too. #Dan
Blair: “The most important thing in a relationship is trust. After sex. And hygiene. And earning potential.”

1. Last man standing: Who will it be?!
Blair [to Serena, on saying “I love you” to Dan]: “I’m not ready. I really want the next person I say it to to be the last.”
