If Chuck Bass had been around earlier, he would have been the reason for the description of someone you "love to hate." Chuck Bass is bitter teenage heir to his unloving millionaire father's fortune and business. Chuck is the brooding rich bad boy of the Upper East Side who wavers between a life of drugs and multiple women and finding real love. But the best part and fatal flaw of Chuck Bass? He never stops being "Chuck Bass."
Chuck: Let me remind you of the rules. There is no outside rum and the only girls you talk to are the ones I've paid for. - 1.4, Bad News Blair
Chuck: Would you consider avoiding me over breakfast? - 1.8, Seventeen Candles
Chuck: Only time will tell, I'm afraid. So unless you want dear Nathaniel to know how you lost your virginity to me in the back of a moving vehicle, I encourage patience and restraint. - 1.12, School Lies
Chuck: You know, if my dad and your mom come back from South Africa tomorrow engaged we'll be brother and sister. And you know what they say, the family that plays together stays together.
Serena: Ah. Incest, the universal taboo. One of the, uh, only ones you haven't violated.
Chuck: I'm game if you are. - 1.12, School Lies
Chuck: I'm Chuck Bass! - 1.17, Woman On the Verge
Blair: Don't worry, I can be a bitch enough for both of us.
Chuck: I still got the scars on my back to prove it. - 1.18, Much 'I Do' About Nothing
Chuck: I don't have a romantic bone in my body. Least of all that one. But you do raise an interesting idea. Clearly there's some kind of... blockage. Perhaps... one more go-around, just to clear the pipes. - 2.3, The Dark Knight
Chuck: Looks like you just hooked yourself a Bass. - 2.9, There Might Be Blood
Nate: [on Bart's letter] Aren't you curious what it says?
Chuck: I think I can guess. You're a disappointment of a son; I'd die of embarrassment if I hadn't already; why do you wear so much purple? - 2.15, Gone with the Will
If there's one thing Chuck cares more about than his sexual conquests, it's his always 'holier than thou' fashion. He wears many a boldly colored tailored jacket and is always dressed smartly, aka in extremely well-fitted, lavish clothes that are always a step away from being too tight.
Fav Love Interest
While I adore the fact that so far on the show Chuck and Blair can't work it out to be together happily, their chemistry is undeniable and one of the best parts of the show as a whole, and has brought an entirely fascinating new dimension to both characters since their steamy romance began in the back of Chuck's limo! I can only hope that they can hold off on ruining the relationship, but continuing with the attraction, until they're both ready to be together and no longer care just about the chase or others involved in their complicated love lives.
Juiciest Gossip Girl Scandal
It's hard to find an embarrassing scandal for Chuck since he will do anything, couldn't care less what anyone thought, and is often the one who sent the news to GG in the first place - most likely to ruin someone else. But with that in mind, the juiciest scandal revealed via Gossip Girl for Chuck would one he sent himself to humiliate Blair - that she had slept with 2 guys in one week, after she'd slept with him and later rejected him. This all blew up in Chuck's face as it turned into an enormous fight for Chuck and Nate, Nate signing off their friendship, and Chuck (temporarily) losing both his best friend and the girl he loved.
