    What The Hell Was With All The Waffles On "Gossip Girl"?

    The "scandalous lives of Manhattan's elite" involve nothing but constantly eating waffles. Was Big Waffle pulling the strings? Here are all the show's waffles in chronological order.

    In Episode 2, Rufus makes his thesis statement as a character.

    Warner Brothers

    His only purpose as a sad, washed-up musician dad was to make waffles.

    Even Vanessa, the worst character ever, can sense the constant presence of waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Dan and Jenny's absentee mother at least knows that these children eat waffles for every meal.

    Warner Brothers

    What are they eating? Oh, waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Here's a closeup of the Waffle King himself, about to eat a bite of delicious waffle.

    Warner Brothers

    It's Christmas morning and the siblings Humphrey are salivating over their daily allotment of waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Oooh hot waffle!

    Warner Brothers

    Poor Rufus slaving away at literally the only thing he knows how to do.

    Dan feeds his growing waffle addiction as his waffle enabler looks on in delight.

    Warner Brothers

    Sometimes waffle consumption is a tense affair.

    Warner Brothers

    What would you like for breakfast? LOL like you have a choice.

    Warner Brothers

    Nice shirt, Rufus. Look out behind you!

    Rufus spending some alone time with his many waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Oh, is it waffle o'clock again?

    Warner Brothers

    Dan stuffing his mouth hole with the only thing he knows how to put in there.

    Warner Brothers

    Waffles acting as more of a parent than Rufus ever will.

    Warner Brothers

    Dan begins to start panicking when he finds himself in a no-waffles situation.

    Warner Brothers

    Sometimes it helps to share the pain of your waffle-based diet with a friend.

    Warner Brothers

    Jenny sends out a cry for help, but the waffle madness is FAR from over.

    Warner Brothers

    Eric naively admires Rufus' waffle iron.

    Warner Brothers

    Finally, Eric will get to eat the first of millions of waffles.

    By Season 3, Dan finally fulfills his destiny.

    Warner Brothers

    Waffle eater becomes waffle maker.

    Even Chuck Bass gets in on the waffle action.

    Warner Brothers

    While Dan was making waffles in Brooklyn, his dad was ALSO making waffles on the Upper East Side, their waffle cycles fully synced.

    But then Rufus got confused and made the wrong thing.

    Warner Brothers

    RUFUS, WHAT DID YOU DO?

    Warner Brothers

    Thank god, the waffles returned!

    Warner Brothers

    Jenny is prone to revealing family secrets.

    Warner Brothers

    SPOTTED...

    Warner Brothers

    Waffles were used in emotional warfare.

    Warner Brothers

    Not even Nate Archibald was safe from the waffle epidemic.

    Warner Brothers

    The Upper East Side's appetite for waffles cannot be satisfied!

    Warner Brothers

    Jenny's rebellious stage includes rebelling against waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Eating waffles for every meal starts to take its toll.

    But Rufus starts to realize that waffle-based parenting is not super effective.

    Warner Brothers

    And he reaches a moment of clarity in his waffle-induced madness.

    Warner Brothers

    If anyone eats anything other than a waffle, it raises a red flag.

    Warner Brothers

    No one on Gossip Girl was ever more than five feet away from a waffle at any given time.

    Warner Brothers

    Jenny remains scarred for life from the constant stream of waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    But Nate will not tolerate any disrespect toward the sacred waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    He has undergone full waffle indoctrination.

    Warner Brothers

    Rufus just keeps making waffles. He cannot stop. Even if he wanted to (which he does not).

    Warner Brothers

    Because the insane demand for waffles never ends.

    Warner Brothers

    Rufus never goes anywhere without a plate of his trusty waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    Dan proves he cannot function without his precious waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    But sometimes he's forced to make the hardest decisions of his life.

    Warner Brothers

    But it's OK because there are always 10,000 more waffles around the corner.

    Warner Brothers

    Every corner.

    Warner Brothers

    And when William Van Der Woodsen tries to take Rufus' place, the first thing he takes is his waffles.

    Warner Brothers

    But Rufus only has ONE job and he does it so well.

    Warner Brothers

    Not even Blair Waldorf is free of waffle dialogue.

    Rufus starts a journey of self reflection and doesn't like what he sees.

    Warner Brothers

    Day in, day out, Rufus replenishes the waffle supply, never letting it run dry.

    Quintessential Rufus: sitting alone in Brooklyn next to a plate of waffles, sadly strumming his guitar.

    In the last season, as Ivy unpacks Rufus' things as he moves back into his loft, the waffle iron returns home.
