Serena, there you are.
Come, come, come.
I have to go.
And here we go.
Are you sure about this?
Ask me again, and I'll change my mind.
I love you, lily.
I love you, too, rufus.
Then have a great wedding and try not to trip or anything.
I can't believe you put that in my mind.
Well, luckily, I have done this before.
Oh! How rude!
Can you believe how late she is?
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today in the face of this company to watch this man...
And this woman...
Totally eff things up.
Excuse me while I pull out a hankie
and pass it to s. And d.
Looks like I'm not the only one who cries at weddings.
How's your food?
I was being sarcastic. You haven't eaten a bite.
Let's go somewhere quiet.
We can talk.
I need some air.
I'll be right back.
I need to talk to you.
Your father's leaving.
He just stepped out to call my mom.
- Yes. - No.
He just asked to have his car brought around.
He probably left his phone in it.
Before the ceremony, I saw him with a guy doing a deal.
It looked like drugs.
My father is clean, chuck.
I don't need you spying on him.
Look, I know you hate me.
I was in love with blair, and I'm sorry.
We do not have time to argue about this.
Dad, what the hell are you doing?
I left you a note at home.
Yeah? What's it say?
- It says I'm sorry. - For what?
Dad, if you've relapsed, it's okay.
We'll get you help.
Chuck saw you earlier.
I wasn't buying drugs.
You're skipping town?
I'm gonna be a much better father to you from dominica than I will be from jail.
I know you're scared, but we'll get through the trial.
No, we won't.
I'm guilty, nate.
I'm facing 25 years.
So all this stuff about things looking good and working out, huh?
What about mom?
Who do you think's paying for the private plane?
Why didn't you tell me any of this?
'Cause I didn't want you to know anything, be an accessory.
This is the best thing for everyone.
I need you to step up right now.
Be the man of the family for your mother.
It's been that for a while now.
That's for mom.
Looks like nate isn't a fan of the fish...
Or his date.
Blair, I'm with nate, and you're at the singles table.
Deal with it.
I just feel sorry for you is all.
Dating an archibald is a tortured process
the endless supply of family drama,
the fact that he never really got over serena.
Though, falling for someone who's in love with serena-
you already know how that feels, don't you?
Hey, have you guys seen chuck?
It's time for his speech.
I'll look for him.
Maybe he's with my date.
So thank you.
It's your dad.
It's bigger than... All the other stuff.
Look, I'm sorry...
For all of it.
So am i.
So you said you loved her.
Well, I never heard you say that before...
Ready to go back in?
I don't think I'm going back in.
Just, um, tell vanessa I-
tell vanessa what?
They're looking for you inside.
It's a long story.
I have time.
Don't-don't run away from me.
Dan, it's okay.
I kinda figured that
when I saw her coming out of your bedroom this morning,
but I-I'm willing to let it go.
I don't wanna break up with you.
Maybe I want to break up with you.
Maybe I can't just"let it go. "
you lied to me over and over,
and it was easy for you.
No, it wasn't easy.
I got seduced by a girl pretending to be someone else, and you knew.
But I couldn't say anything.
Well, because you- you were afraid I'd find out you thought you killed someone.
I was hoping you'd understand.
I am the most understanding person in the world.
And-and-and this is not about who you used to be,
your "past," or who you were when we met.
I mean, the only reason I was with georgina was
because yesterday morning, you slept with two random guys you met in a bar.
No, no, I-I didn't. I just said that.
How is that less crazy?
Because I thought it would be easier to forgive than what I really did.
So what, dan?
We're exactly where we were at the bass' brunch when we first started dating.
I'm not who you thought I was, and you can't forgive that.
I- I just think too much has happened.
I don't know how to make things go back to what they were.
So that's it then?
"have a good summer. I'll- I'll see you back at school"?
I'd like to propose a toast.
My father is someone who goes after what he wants,
and lily van der woodsen was no exception.
In typical bass man fashion, his pursuit was direct,
and at times, not exactly subtle.
One thing I learned from my father's courtship of lily
is the importance of perseverance-
that in the face of true love, you don't just give up,
even if the object of your affection is begging you to.
And one thing I learned from lily is the importance of forgiveness.
She gave my father the gift of a second chance,
and in kind, I've watched him become someone actually worthy of that gift.
And one day,
I hope I'll be lucky enough to find someone who will do the same for me.
? the happy couple.
that was quite a speech.
All your hard work must have paid off.
That wasn't what I wrote.
I was inspired in the moment.
Look, I know I said some horrible things, even for me.
