Jake Ballard Quotes

Jake: Man, do I love you.
Olivia: I want Vermont with Fitz.
Jake: Oh, okay.
Olivia: I also want the sun with you.
Jake: So...
Olivia: I'm not choosing. I'm not choosing Jake. I'm not choosing Fitz. I'm choosing me. I'm choosing Olivia. And right now, Olivia is dancing. Now, you can dance with me or you can get off my dance floor. I'm fine dancing alone.

I get it. You just found out your mother isn't who you thought. You just got your happy memories of her taken from you. She's bad, and we don't know how bad, but that does not make your father the good guy. He is not a good guy, Liv. And Huck is about to go out there and look for him, try to save your father, try to save the man who manipulated him, who threw him in a hole until he was nearly driven out of his mind, and then stole everything that was important to him, and you say it's not my business, but Huck and I, we're in the same business, and your father? He is not our hero. He is our demon. And you're not the only one to lose your happy memories. So I speak from experience when I say maybe you cut Huck some slack.

Scandal Quotes

I kept my distance from him because I was terrified of what he might...be. Turns out he was yours the whole time. But he was always mine, or he should have been. But I was afraid, and now he's gone.

Mellie

[to Cyrus] It hurts until it doesn't. You think it's going to break you, but it won't. You may not sleep as well at night, but you will be fine. Numb, but numb and fine are the same.
