Memorable quote: "The first day of school's draft day. Blair and her merry band of psychos are going to be on a tear. They categorize girls into two groups: projects or victims. Girls with potential to become little mini-Blair-ites become projects and total losers, and the girls who have potential to threaten social order become victims. I was a project last year and we all know how that turned out."
