Blair Waldorf is the main character in all versions of the popular series Gossip Girl. Best friend to Serena van der Woodsen, and eventual wife to Chuck Bass, she’s the tough but tender “Queen B” of the Manhattan social scene.
And as the lead, she is given some of the best quotes and dialogue in the entire series. This was no different on the television version where Leighton Meester played her to perfection.
The series officially ended in 2012, but after binge watching some episodes on Netflix recently, we remembered how many memorable lines her character had over the shows 6 season run. For that reason, we’ve decided to compile some of Blair’s most memorable lines on life, love and everything in between.
