C: Well back to my father, the bastard, I really don't understand why your all here, He wasn't a good father, He didn't care, the last words he said to me were "You dissapoint me",

Blair gets tears in her eyes, because she is upset at Chuck's breakdown.

C: That's all I was a dissapointment, Not quite good enough. Well your dead now Dad, And your probably still dissapointed in me, but don't worry father, I'll carry on to disgrace you, and I hope your looking up from hell, So I can just prove 당신 right.
B: (Stands up) Chuck...Please stop
C: So when we get back to the appartment lets all raise our glasses to Bart!

Chuck looks around the church at the shocked faces, then rushes out.

B: Chuck!

Blair is about to run after him.
Eleanor pulls her arm to sit down and whispers to Blair.

E: Sit down Blair
B: I need to after him
E: He's beyond help, He really is a peice of work
B: Yeah well, He's my peice of work

Blair runs out of the church.

RS: Right, Shall we continue? (Looks at Lily)

Chuck is hiding behind a 벽 and listens to Blair.

B: Chuck?! Chuck...Please...You need someone, And I'm here for you. (Waits for a response) Fine! Be stubborn, (waits for another response) Ughh.

Blair goes back into the church.
Chuck walks away from the church.

C: I didn't when he was alive why should I when he's dead?
L: Don't 당신 want to prove him wrong?
C: No, I'm beyond caring, and I know 당신 don't so stop pretending
L: I'm not Charles, I'm still here for you

Chuck goes upstairs and Blair follows him.
Blair pushes Chuck into the bedroom.
Chuck walks over to the window.
Blair closes the door.

B: What was that?
C: I sudden outburst of my emotions, I thought that's what 당신 wanted?
B: I wanted 당신 to express how 당신 were feeling, Not Insult half the Upper East Side

B: I suppose there could be some pleasure in that, we have hope

Chuck and Blair kiss.

B: What are 당신 going to do?
C: I don't know, But...You get on with your life

Chuck leaves the room.

Blair looks at herself in the mirror to whipe away the tears.

B: How can I do that without you?

GG: So Blair and Chuck are over before it even got a chance to get going, So with Chuck going away to "greive", and we all know what that means, and B moving on, can she survive without C? We'll find out soon, 당신 know 당신 사랑 me. xoxo Gossip Girl.
