There’s probably only two people in this world who can tell me if this really happened. One of those people is my father and I can’t ask him because he’ll probably kill both of you or maybe even all three of us to teach me some kind of sick lesson. And the other is the President.

Fitz: Liv, I feel like...ashamed. Like I don't have a right to make jokes. Like I am the joke. 'The guy can't keep it in his pants.' Like my father, you know?
Olivia: Dive in. Own it. Mock your image.

[to Fitz] You can't vet your jokes. You're not funny.

Jake: Hey, hey, don't cry.
Olivia: I'm not crying. I'm trying not to scream. I'm scared.

[to Jake] I need to go back to doing what worked. Eyes straight ahead. No looing around corners. No peeping in shadows. No asking questions. No stepping outside the lines. I need to be a good girl.

Olivia: This is not a fairy tale. This is not the happily ever after. If you're still alive, it's because he still owns you. It's because you're still useful to him. And he's going to find a way to use you against me.
Jake: Liv--
Olivia: Don't feel bad about it. He still owns me, too.

Olivia: Huck, look at me.
Huck: This should've been my day, Liv. I should've had some peace.

Olivia: Huck?
Huck: Don't worry. I'm not here to kill you. I'm all killed out today.

Fitz: Somewhere, in another life, another reality, we are married and we have four kids, and we live in Vermont, and I'm the mayor--
Olivia: And I make jam.
Fitz: And you make jam.

Fitz: Something happens and you're the one I want to talk to.
Olivia: You don't want to talk to me.
Fitz: I only want to talk to you.

Mellie, I know the situation is difficult, I do. And I'm so, so sorry. But we have a job to do here, and in order for me to do my part effectively, I'm going to need you to refrain from referring to me as a whore. At least in front of my face. Alright?

Olivia: You shouldn't be here?
David: Why? Because I'm the US Attorney for the District of Columbia and may be asked to investigate the President's affair with you? I left that hat at the door.

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?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.
