Did You Know?


This is the third time that Blair has a dream in which she is a character that was played by Audrey Hepburn in a movie. The first time this happened was in Gossip Girl: Bad News Blair (2007) with Blair being Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), whom she also impersonated in Gossip Girl: The Blair Bitch Project (2008). This time she is Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady (1964). It would happen a fourth time in Gossip Girl: Seder Anything (2009). See more »


Serena mentions knowing that it was Pope Pius XI who canonized Sir Thomas More as a Saint by watching the TV show The Tudors. This is impossible as The Tudors is a historical drama only covering the reign of Henry VIII (1509-1547); Pope Pius XI was canonized as a saint in 1935. See more »
