Scandal

Can you just be, I don't know, nice for a minute, to me? Can you be a dad? Normal, kind, regular dad, for just a few seconds for me, please? I'm asking here, really asking, because I really need it. I need my dad.

Rowan: What?
Olivia: You could say hello.
Rowan: Hello, Olivia. What do you want?

Jake: It's unfortunate. Life is unfortunate. Random. Coincidental. Bad things happen to good people all the time.
Olivia: No, you make bad things happen to good people.

They're all murderers. Reston, Sally, Fitz, the presidential debate it's literally murderer's row. No matter who gets elected, they're all murderers.

Jake: Run away with me Liv, save me.
Olivia: Take advantage of me Jake.

I wanna walk into the light and feel the sun on my face Cyrus. You're on your own.

Olivia: You went too far with Quinn.
Huck: No. You went too far.
Olivia: Excuse me?
Huck: You took in a wild monster and you groomed me and petted me and trained me to sit at your feet. But that doesn't mean I'm a puppy, Liv. That just makes me a very loyal monster. So I didn't go too far. I went exactly as far as my leash allows, and you hold the leash. You ruined her life and then you made me save her and then you gave her to me to take under my wing.

Olivia: Huck, you know I don't drink coffee.
Huck: It's a gesture. It means I'm sorry about Quinn. People get people coffee when they're sorry. I can get you tea instead.

I didn't do this for you. I did not do this for you. I did this for me, so I could work on the campaign. So I could walk down the street and not be whispered about. So I could stop being known as the woman who screwed the President, so the scarlet "A" on my chest could be invisible! So I could stop being a joke. I am a person. I am not a hen! I am not a prize!

[to Fitz] One, I am not a hen. Two, I am not a prize at the state fair. You cannot win me!

Serving the Republic, I always thought it was a good thing, a great thing. True service, a calling. Now I think...I think it eats at you until you are not you anymore, until you are lost. Until you can't remember who you were. Until you forget yourself and all you can see is the greater good. All you can see is God and country and you're so busy being a patriot that you forget to be a person.

Jake: I couldn't say no! I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States--
Olivia: Don't we all.

Scandal Quotes

[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.

Mellie

We both know it's not my turn anymore. We both know we're not standing in the sun. We both know you're standing in the shade of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As long as we're back, it's his turn, despite the fact that I'm the one you like to ride. That I'm the one who makes you moan. The one who reaches you in places that he can't begin to touch. Isn't that right?
