1. Summer, Kind Of Wonderful
Jenny: Look, I know I acted like a complete and total raging bitch last year, but what you don't know is how bad I felt about it all summer. You were the only person who was friends with me for me and I hurt you the worst.
Jenny: I was hoping I could show you something I've been working on.
Jenny: As nice as it is that you're encouraging me to get my designs out there, the White Party's like, super-exclusive. I mean summer interns do not get to go. Last year they even turned away Jack Johnson.
Eric: If it's apology-time you're about three months too late. And let me guess, you want something.
Jenny: Um, yeah. Does it help if the new me just answer that honestly?
2. Never Been Marcused
Jenny: What about you, Dad? You were the one on the great American road trip? Any good stories?
Rufus: Oh, well, there's no place like home.
Dan: That's profound.
3. The Dark Night
Vanessa: Calling him won't look desperate?
Jenny: It will. It will. It will. But in a cute, romantic way.
Jenny: Ahhhh! Dan! You guys are together! You're back together! It wasn't a doctored photo?
Jenny: It looks like a pilgrim at a funeral. I am so, so sorry.
Eleanor: You're absolutely right.
Jenny: I am?
Eleanor: Yes. Don't let it go to your head.
Jenny: Yeah, I know. I'll clean the atelier as soon as I'm finished here, okay?
Jenny: Why are you wearing a jacket? It's like a hundred degrees.
Jenny: The lights are on. Aren't I fired?
Rufus: You got fired?
Eleanor: Oh, don't be so dramatic.
4. The Ex - Files
Jenny: Well I guess it's better to be ignored than tortured, right?
Dan: Always look on the bright side.
Jenny: It was like I didn't even exist!
Jenny: You'd be the worst P.I. ever.
Dan: I don't wanna be caught off guard. I can't believe I haven't seen her ...
Jenny: Yeah, especially since you're in the GIRLS hallway looking for her. Just be nice. I'm sure this isn't easy for Serena either.
Jenny: Dad, how set are you on this whole "going-to-school" thing?
Rufus: Pretty set. Why?
Jenny: The first day of school is Draft Day. Blair and her merry band of psychos are going to be on a tear. They categorize girls into two groups: projects and victims. Girls who have the potential to become little mini Blair-ites become projects. And the total losers and girls who have the potential to threaten social order become victims. I was a project last year and we all know how that turned out.
5. The Serena Also Rises
Jenny: I waved the white flag at school. Why can't you just claim your throne and leave me alone?
Blair: Because I can't!
Jenny: This is about Serena. I didn't realize.
Blair: And why would you?
Jenny: You might be privileged, Blair, but you work for every single thing you've achieved. Like me. Serena just glides through.
Blair: Tell me about it.
Jenny: I wanted to be your friend last year for a reason. I wanted you to like me.
7. Chuck in Real Life
Jenny: It's so weird that you're on a team now. Pretty soon you're going to have actual guy friends.
Dan: What are you talking about? I have plenty of guy friends.
Jenny: Dan, I know that you're Mr. Soccer now, but you and I both know you prefer to hang out with girls.
Dan: Dad, will you please tell Jenny that I have guy friends.
Rufus: Of course you do. I'm his—
Jenny: No. Not including you.
Rufus: There's Cedric—
Jenny: Not including dolls.
Agnes: I love your dress.
Jenny: I made it, actually.
Eleanor: I should have known better than to give so much responsibility to a child.
Jenny: A child? I'm sorry, but this child seems to be the only one who can design anything that the buyers are remotely interested in.
Eleanor: You are lucky that I don't fire you this minute.
Jenny: You are lucky that I don't just quit!
Jenny: Agnes, I'm gonna kill you.
Agnes: Okay, seriously, you work your ass off, and for what? So Eleanor can rip off your ideas?
Jenny: No, Eleanor promised that I could be in the meetings with the buyers from Mendels and Barney's today.
Agnes: I mean, you can do whatever you want to do, but what do you think people will say when they see Jenny Humphrey has finally gone out on her own?
Jenny: I dunno... Jenny Humphrey is so young to have her own line?
10. Bonfire Of The Vanity
Agent: Who do you imagine your client will be?
Agnes: Girls like us-
Jenny: Sophisticated girls with a bit of edge, and who can afford a high-end product. I know these girls and their style because I'm their peer, and that's what makes me unique as a designer.
Jenny: And yet another one bites the bust, Agnes. What is the matter with you?! This guy was our last chance!
Agnes: Okay he totally overreacted! We're artists! We need to work with somebody who's not gonna be freaked out by a little bit of passion.
Jenny: Passion. You know the heat from the fashion show's not gonna last that long ...
Agnes: Jenny, I will find us another business manager tomorrow.
Jenny: Good, because without one we can't meet with any buyers.
Agnes: It's all gonna work out, okay? I'm on it.
11. The Magnificent Archibalds
Lily: I saw your father today.
Jenny: I had a feeling.
Lily: Jenny, he's your father and he loves you. So much. And at least for the next couple years, you belong at home with him.
Jenny: Um, thank you, Mrs. Bass, for letting me stay here and everything, but I'm pretty tired, so I'm gonna-
Lily: Well, get some rest. We can talk some more tomorrow.
Lawyer: I need to be sure you understand what "emancipation" means.
Jenny: I do. I've been researching it.
Blair: What are you doing?
Jenny: My dad and I got in a fight. I was crashing at Eric's and he finally chased me down.
Blair: You're lucky. You have a family who fights for you. Mine doesn't even care if I'm there.
Jenny: Your mom loves you in her own way, Blair.
12. It's A Wonderful Lie
Jenny: How could you? Really Vanessa? Lying and seeing Nate behind my back?
Vanessa: I'm... so sorry. I've been meaning to tell you I just wasn't sure how.
Jenny: You knew this entire time why Nate wasn't calling and it was because he was with you.
Vanessa: I understand that you're upset. But if I remember correctly you kissed Nate behind my back first.
Jenny: And I felt so horrible about it that I ran after you and you were gone. So what happened to not letting a guy get in between us? Are you really that desperate?
Vanessa: Are you really that jealous, Jenny?
Jenny: Oh my god!
Vanessa: Jenny. What are you doing here?
Jenny: I'm still mad at you.
Vanessa: So what, you're going to kill me and put me in the garment bag?
Jenny: I couldn't sleep last night. I was up half the night making this before I realized who it was for.
Vanessa: You made that for me?
Jenny: Yeah. I mean, um, I said some pretty awful things 'cause I was hurt. So I guess just consider this a peace offering. You'll look great.
Nate: Jenny. Did you do that to Vanessa?
Jenny: Yeah. You don't understand, okay? She completely—
Nate: She what? She lied? She went behind your back? So what? For that she deserved to be publicly humiliated? She's your friend, Jenny. You know, there's no reason to tell you this now, but I wrote you this letter after the fashion show. Telling you I had feelings for you.
Jenny: I never got that.
Nate: I know. Vanessa stole it. But she felt so bad about it she came and told me the truth.
Jenny: Okay, look. I know what you must think of me right now. But if I had gotten—
Nate: I'm glad you didn't Honestly? You're not who I thought you were.
13. O Brother, Where Bart Thou?
Eleanor: I was thinking something in a jacket, very YSL.
Jenny: Mick and Bianca, 1971, great reference.
14. In The Realm Of The Basses
Jenny: They treat her like their servant.
Jenny: Okay no. That's not okay.
Eric: Here we go ...
Hazel: Do you know what you're doing, Little J?
Jenny: I'm not Little J anymore.
15. Gone with the will
Jenny: Oh, did you guys know that you have matching backpacks? It's so cute.
17. Carrnal Knowledge
Dan: Hey, this day is getting weirder by the minute.
Jenny: Anything you want to tell me?
Dan: Um, besides I'm glad you're not wearing that raccoon makeup anymore? Because you looked like one of the Incredibles.
Jenny: Aw, thanks, a lot. And I thought I was the bad seed in the family.
19. The Grandfather
Jenny: Do you want me to overnight you a red tie from Bluefly?
20. Remains of the J
Jenny: Do you know how many types of jam they have there?
Jenny: Maybe Serena was just trying to be nice, but the party that she threw was totally embarrassing. You know, at least last year, it was my face on the cake. And the people at my party might have hated me, but at least they knew who I was. I know that it's hard for you guys to understand. But I like being me. And as crazy as it may seem, I choose not to be a Park Avenue princess. On my birthday, or any other day. No matter what my address might be.
Jenny: But I was the one who posted the party on Gossip Girl.
Jenny: Enjoy my party?
Eric: Yeah, I was just saying to Jonathan that this is lovely, intimate family gathering.
Jonathan: Nothing says Jenny Humphrey like a customized cocktail napkin.
Jenny: Dad, you and Lily might wanna live together, but I'm just not ready to stop being a Humphrey.
21. Seder Anything
Jenny: You know you're lucky I didn't tell my dad. Because if I did he'd make Lily choose. Us or you. And I wonder who she'd pick.
Chuck: You really think I care if Lily kicks me out.
Jenny: Yeah I do. Because you lost Blair and now she's dating your best friend. So therefore the only human contact that you have that you don't pay for is the people in this house. Knowing you, you'd screw that up too.
24. Valley Girls
Dan: I think I'm going to need a dress for prom.
Jenny: Okay, well, you're going to have to wear your own shoes.
25. The Goodbye Gossip Girl
Jenny: This graduation is a celebration for us, too. No more mean girls! We have suffered under their dictatorship for way too long. Starting next fall, there will be peace in the kingdom.
Nelly: What would high school be without hierarchy?
Jenny: Bearable? A nice place to spend time?
