We needed a shower after that knockdown drag-out claws-bared shitfest of a Gossip Girl episode. But even with all the screwing over and double-crossings, there were still some shining moments of hilarity ensuing. Here are some of our favorites:

10. Apple, meet tree.
Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick): “Don’t do this. My father will screw you and screw you over.”

9. She opens her “arms” to all generations.
Ivy (Kaylee DeFer): “Sorry to interrupt this Oedipal showdown, but I think I have what you’re looking for.”

8. Headbands make great slingshots.
Nelly: “And what makes you think the Katniss Everdeen generation is going to care about you?”

7. At least she’s thorough.
Ivy: “All I want is for Lily to be left with no one and nothing.”

6. RIGHT?!?!?! OUR THOUGHTS EXACTLY!
Nate (Chace Crawford): “Who would have thought — Chuck Bass turns out to be the good guy, and Dan Humphrey is the villain”

5. She makes offers they literally cannot refuse.
Sage (Sofia Black-D’Elia): “Everyone loves a crown, but when it comes to power, the mob totally trumps the monarchy.”

4. You can’t fight that logic.
One of the Dons: “Devotion to great clothes trumps five family loyalty.”

3. The Olsen twins destroyed all copies of Billboard Dad
Nelly: “She’s stuck in the middle. And what could be less cool than being a tween?”

2. Hit the showers, Humphrey Sr. Your useful days are numbered.
Rufus (Matthew Settle): “Ivy’s not who I thought she was. I know I should have been tipped off by the whole ‘pretending to be your niece’ thing”

1. Why is everything funnier in a low growl?
Bart: “Where are you going? Does Blair need you to come over to kill a spider?”
