You're the biggest bitch I know. Don't tell me you can't do this.

Olivia: Cyrus, Fitz and I together, we have an actual relationship. This is what a couple looks like.
Cyrus: You have the Oval. This is what power looks like. He's not the President anymore, Olivia. You are.

Olivia: Whatever you say about my father, you say it in front of me.
Jake: Okay. The plan is to find your father, and when I do, I'm going to look him in the eye and put a bullet in his head.

Olivia: No wedding dress, no flowers, and no vows. And I'm keeping my name.
Fitz: Good. Because I'm only marrying you for your money.

Olivia: We're not ready.
Fitz: You're not ready. And you never will be.

Abby: If you take the stand, you could end up going to jail.
Olivia: And if I get married? What in the hell do you think this is?

[to Abby] We're not ready to get married. It'd just be a last minute, 'get out of jail free' card. I don't want that for us and pretending that I do is just another lie.

So, I wish we'd never met. But we did. And I tried. I tried and failed. And tried and failed again to hide. To stop loving him. But I couldn't. I was weak. I hated myself. I wore this ring to remind me of my weakness. And when our affair was exposed, I had to follow my own advice and stand in my truth.

Olivia: I keep asking myself 'When did it happen? When did I turn right instead of left? What choice was it that decided? When exactly did I do the thing...the one step? What flap of the butterfly's wings brought me to this moment. How did I get here?' Because I can't seem to retrace my steps.
Jake: Liv...
Olivia: I'm scared.

Jake: Look, at some point, you're going to have to leave this place, face the music. You wanted to be with him. You wanted to be with him so much that I--what's changed?
Olivia: What's changed?

I want you. I want us. But I want to slow down. I want our business handled. I want our problems fixed. I want to be ready before the world is watching because once it is, once we're in that spotlight being picked at and scrubbed and stretched in every direction we will never get the chance to make things right. If we are broken going in, we're not getting out. They will destroy us. That's reality, Fitz.

Olivia: Have you been waiting for me to come home? Am I your plan?
Huck: You always fix me.

Scandal Quotes

I am not a toy that you can play with when you're bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done.

Olivia

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
