“I feel nothing, when I see her and Louis, or when I jump off a building, or when I crash a motorcycle, even you don’t irritate me. Is being dead that much worse than being nothing?” — Chuck, 5.05 Beauty and the Feast
“It’s not fair. He’s alive, but I feel dead inside without him.” — Blair, 5.11 The End of the Affair?
“You were right. I was a coward running away again.”
“Someone did love you. And… you owe it to her, and everyone else you’re leaving behind not to run away. Which is what you’re doing. And I don’t think that great man you’re talking about wanting to be is a coward. I think he would face up to what he did.”
“But everywhere I went, you caught up with me.”
“Your world would be easier if I didn’t come back.” “That’s true. But it wouldn’t be my world without you in it.”
“So I had to come back.”
2.25 The Goodbye Gossip Girl & 4.02 Double Identity
Idea by thefuturemaynevercomecb. What I find interesting is that the original script for the I Love You scene in 2.25 included “I’m not Chuck Bass without you.” instead of in 3.01, and I remember how people parallel it to “It wouldn’t be my world without you in it.” Either way, it still ties in to their whole narrative of identity and loss.
