    Well, she's loyal to Miss Blair at least, and that's what counts since Blair hasn't been able to count on anybody else in her life.

    Examples: Dorota helped steal back Blair's phone after it was confiscated at school. And, despite her boss' eccentricities, Dorota follows her instructions as well as she can, such as when Serena and Chuck come by and demand to know where Blair is.

    "I'm sorry but Miss Blair very specific: No tell Miss Serena, no tell Mr. Chuck," Dorota declares, "but if Mr. Chuck come, tell him Mr. Carter is more attentive to woman's [needs]." « Less

    Dorota's incredibly mobile features and expressive eyes can elicit laughs in the face of more verbal characters -- an accomplishment on a show in which everybody has something incredibly pithy or catty to say.

    Example: Dorota's shocked expression after Mr. Chuck tells her that he likes breakfast in bed. « Less

    When she does speak, Dorota can deliver a line like no other, whether it's full of woe, intrigue or deadpan indifference. No matter what the approach (or broken English), she generally gets a laugh.

    Example exchange:

    Blair Waldorf: Dorota, are you insane?
    Dorota: I don't know. « Less

    Don't be fooled by Dorota's seemingly narrow existence. She is hip to what's going on in the world and in Manhattan's elite circles ... perhaps because she's connected online and through her circle of fellow service people.

    Example:

    Blair Waldorf: Not a word in a week. Though I can't seem to escape [Serena]. Ever since my mother's show, Manhattan has turned into Serenaville.
    Dorota: I heard Marc Jacobs named a purse after her. « Less

    Examples:

    Dorota: Facebook. I join few groups.

    Dorota: How did you find me?
    Estranged husband Stanislav: Facebook. I join New York network, search, and there you were, super easy. I see your profile and everything.

    Dorota can't be swayed from her duties and performs them to the best of her abilities despite the less-than-scrupulous folks around her.

    Example: When Chuck attempts to bribe her, asking how much she wants for information, she shrieks, "How much?!?" in outrage before launching into a furious diatribe in Polish. « Less

    Reason #9: Fashion sense:
    Dorota may be a domestic with a certain uniform and demure hairstyle required, but that doesn't stop her from rocking the headband. Where do you think Blair got it?

    Dorota may be the most loyal and reliable servant, but that doesn't mean she's blind to her employers' faults. She knows she's lucky to have her job and just finds small, sneaky ways to rebel that won't jeopardize her employment status.

    Example: The ringtone for when Mrs. Eleanor Waldorf calls her is Britney Spears' "Slave 4 U."
