gossip girl Season1 Episode06
Long ago, when european royals grew bored with palace balls,
they took a page from the peons and added some pageantry.
Couture and canap are just another saturday night until you add a mask,
pr but eparing for a ball is an event in itself,
which is why queens invented handmaidens.
So the dresses should be delivered, and I'll take the small stuff with me.
Which one's yours?
I'm just helping blair, but I mean, you know, we'll see.
Well, here's hoping.
We'll put it on blair's tab.
Oh, no, no, no.
The girls at that party are my best customers.
Why not show off my latest wares?
Just return it after the ball.
So kati mentioned something about a custom-made corset,
and I hear there are wigs involved?
It's a masquerade.
You have to conceal your identity,
but I do have something special planned for nate tonight.
It's a game.
It's a scavenger hunt.
Nate starts the night with a clue,
which leads him to a lady-in-waiting,
who gives him a clue to the next lady-
wait. Hold on. You have ladies now?
If he finds me before midnight when the masks come off, he can claim his prize.
And what's that?
I just figured that after everything that's happened, or hasn't happened,
I should find some way to make it special.
Well, that's really romantic, blair.
Look, um, if you don't want me to come tonight, I totally understand. I could just-
what? No, I want you to come.
In fact, I was hoping you would be one of my ladies.
Would you give nate the last clue?
Are you sure you want me to?
Tonight is all about starting over.
I trust you...
Well, then I will be honored to serve you, my queen.
well, besides, you're bringing dan, right?
Haven't you heard? Your sister's cinderella.
And let me guess.
Your wicked stepsister is blair waldorf.
Blair may have asked me to do a few things, but I'm happy to help.
And if she happens to help you out with an invite and outfit?
It'll all be worth it.
Everyone in disguise in this old ballroom- it's gonna be amazing.
You know, I'm actually surprised serena didn't mention it.
We've only been out twice.
It's not like all of a sudden, we have to do everything together.
All right, well I gotta go deliver this stuff.
Let me know if you need me to pick you up a tux.
It's a masked ball.
I'm sure she thinks I'd never go to something that pretentious,
which shows she knows me well.
I know him.
A masked ball?
Dan would never want to go to something that pretentious,
where he has to wear a mask and a tux?
He likes you.
He would wear a tux and a mask and one of my mother's dresses
if it meant that he could go out with you.
What, are you worried that he already has a date?
I mean, he is dan humphrey.
I don't know.
I guess a masked ball isbetter than a regular party
because then all those kids from school that he hates-
he won't even recognize them.
All right. Invite him. I insist.
I'm not saying I wouldn't go.
If serena asked me, I wouldn't deprive her of my company.
No, that would be too cruel.
But she hasn't asked me, so...
if you want to go with her, just make it happen.
Put yourself out there.
This thing happens in a matter of hours.
The window for bold gestures is officially closed.
is that her?
uh, no, it's vanessa.
that's been a while.
You gonna answer that?
Of course. Why wouldn't I?
Hi. Yeah, it's me.
So what's up? What's up? How's vermont?
Do you still have my copyof "the crying of lot 49"?
Um, I don't know.
Well, could you check?
I haven't talked to you in over a year,
and you called to ask me about an old book?
You know, it could be anywhere.
Try over by the window.
- Vanessa - vanessa. - Surprise!
Oh, my god.
- How are you? - So good to see you. I can't believe you're here.
What-what are you doing here?
My parents said I could live with my sister and finish high school in the city.
- So-so that means you're- - I'm back for good.
awesome, I hope?
Yes, of course. It's just...
go ahead. Answer that. I'm starving, and I smell waffles.
- Rufus - Vanessa - rufus. - vanessa.
go ahead. Do it.
Uh, hey, I was just wondering, are you, uh, are you,
uh, doing anything tonight?
Tonight? No. No, nothing. Why?
Good, because there's this thing,
and you're probably gonna think it's stupid, but...
Even cold, these are so good.
I- I've missed rufus' cooking.
rufus, do you have whipped cream?
it's my sister, but you-you were saying something.
What do you want me to do with this stuff?
Oh, just leave them over there. That's fine.
I left you another list.
Hello? is anyone there?
I'm sorry. Uh...
Uh, you-you were asking me something.
no, never mind.
Thank you. Have a good day.
so what are we doing tonight?
I think I need a date.
Damn it, anne, I told you no starch.
Howard, we've been going to the same cleaners for 19 years.
Your shirts are exactly how they always are.
We both know this isn't about laundry.
I'm sorry, but I need everything to be perfect at eleanor's party tonight.
I can't screw up.
Eleanor knows you're the best person to take her company public.
She's going to pick you.
Just show up and be yourself.
Look, I'm gonna call you from the office.
I gotta look over the proposal again.
Nate Oh, nate.
Is everything okay with dad?
Just work stuff.
Nothing for you to worry about.
God! I love new york.
There was only one theater in woodbury, and all it ever played were family movies.
"The pacifier"played for, like, a year.
And they said vin diesel couldn't do comedy.
I can't pick.
Overwhelmed by choice.
Whatever you want.
Yeah, sure, whatever.
You do wanna do something, right?
I mean, you don't have plans.
Big night out with over privileged,
under-parented trust fund brats from your fancy school?
Yeah, the limo's actually waiting back at the loft.
Good. We can egg it. Maybe slash the tires?
so is it weird, having me back?
No. Why, uh, why-why would it be weird?
Because we said some thingsthe night that I left-
things that you immediately asked me to take back.
Because I was leaving, but...
now I'm here.
Yeah, and it's been over a year, you know?
A lot has happened, actually.
And I look forward to hearing about it tonight. Night. Late show. Angelika?
- Unless it's "the pacifier. - " Unless it's "the pacifier.
" all right. I'll get tickets.
Glad to be home, humphrey.
Glad to have you, abrams.
so what exactly are you looking for?
The captain's dislike of starchy shirts?
I totally sympathize. The collars chafe.
Did you, uh, ask him about your missing college money?
