This will always be one of my all time favorite Dair scenes. Besides the fact that it was so beautiful, and had one of the most appropriate song choices for the scene… I love this scene because it was a subtle, yet overwhelmingly significant turning point in their friendship. Even if Blair wasn’t quite ready for it at that particular moment, it was the point where they truly went from casual movie/museum going acquaintances to the type of friends who are there for one another, to comfort/confide in each other. I love that their relationship has been built out of subtle moments like this.
“All summer I’ve been sitting in front of my favorite Manet and reading Colette in the park. Hoping that I’ll lock eyes with somebody who’s doing the same thing as me. And feeling the same things I am.”
I ship Blair and Dan. I believe that opposites attract and they make a great couple.
