cb parallels all day everyday


Chuck Bass’s girlfriend vs. Mr. Blair Waldorf.

  • I have to be Blair Waldorf ⟷ I’m Chuck Bass
  • it led me nowhere ⟷ now I have nothing
  • I followed my heart ⟷ I always put you first
  • Anne’s right ⟷ My father was right
  • Our future.

“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?

1.10 & 4.09: Banter in bed.

Chuck: You looked pretty hot on Prince Theodore’s arm today.
Blair: Oh is that what I am to you, just an accessory?
Chuck: Next to him, yes. On me you’d be so much more.
1.10 Hi, Society

Blair: My black Balenciaga would be perfect to publicly condemn you.
Chuck: I love public.
Blair: I love condemnation.
Chuck: I love you.
4.09 The Witches of Bushwick 

The Coward.

“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.


Blair: What if we need games? What if without them we’re boring?
Chuck: We can never be boring.
Blair: You say that, but I know you. You’re Chuck Bass.
: I’m not Chuck Bass without you.

Harvey: Look, I need you.
Donna: Need?
Harvey: Need.
Donna: Well, what about Jessica?
Harvey: Already signed off.
Donna: How did you get her to do that?
Harvey: Because I told her I can’t be me without you.
Donna: No, you didn’t.
Harvey: Well, I thought it, and she knows it.
