Blair: Why did you just do that?
Chuck: 'Cause of what you said earlier.
Blair: About being happy? Chuck, that's not the most important thing. People don't write sonnets about being compatible or novels about shared life goals and stimulating conversation. The great loves are the crazy ones. "L'amour fou."
Chuck: Blair, we're not living in Paris in the '20s.
Blair: We both wish we were.
Chuck: There's a difference between a great love and the right love. I left the Empire State building last year after two minutes when you didn't show. Louis waited all night. This is your chance at happiness. You think you shouldn't want it 'cause you've never had it, and it scares you. But you deserve your fairy tale.
Blair: We make our own fairy tales.
Chuck: Only when we have to. You don't. How do you feel about tonight?
Blair: Awful. Just... Terrible. In fact, I've never felt like this before.
Chuck: Guilt. I feel it, too. Maybe I'm actually growing up after all.
Blair: I didn't wanna let you go just yet.
Chuck: Don't let anyone tell you you're not powerful. You're the most powerful woman I know.
Blair: It's taking all the power I have to walk away from you.
Chuck: I know. But I need to let you go. You need to let go.
Blair: I will always love you.
Chuck: I will always love you.
