  • The scene in season two where Blair more or less tells Chuck flat out that she loves him, and asks him to either tell her that his feelings for her are real, or admit that they are not and leave her be. He tells her that he's just playing a game with her and has no real feelings for her at all. Blair leaves and Serena, who has watched this exchange and knows Chuck feels strongly about Blair, wonders why he just said that.
    Chuck: Because I love her. And I can't make her happy.
  • The scene at the train station in Paris, in episode 4x02. One of the most beautiful in the entire show.
    Blair: I don't love you anymore.
