If you're trying to build a bridge between us, Emily, here's a tip--stay on your side of the river.

[to Emily] Fate can be so cruel.

It's a terrible feeling, betraying someone you love. And I'm so pleased that you finally get to experience the sensation yourself.

Victoria: Do you get off causing innocent people pain?
Nolan: I will let you know if I meet anyone innocent.

Charlotte: This family is so predictable. When threatened each Grayson has their own retreat, like a turtle's shell. Dan and his den, you and this cupola--
Victoria: Daniel and his running trail. Where's yours Charlotte? Please don't tell me it's that bar.

[to Conrad] No good ever comes from dredging up the past. Especially ours.

Emily: Daniel and I are nothing like you and Conrad.
Victoria: We're more alike than you think.

Victoria: Gather around everyone. We're going to play a little game. Conrad, Daniel, come here!
Daniel: Since when does my mother play games?

Patrick, I sacrificed personal happiness for all the wrong reasons. I hope you don't do the same.

[to Margaux] You can spend your life being controlled by powerful men, or you can learn how to control them.

Charlotte: Don't do this on his big night.
Victoria: I simply want him to understand that the people who support him are right here.
Charlotte: Nothing's ever simple with you.

[to Emily] I do hope today's wedding excursion doesn't prove to be an exercise in futility. It would be such a shame...again.

Revenge Quotes

My father once wrote, always question where your loyalty lies. The people you trust will expect it, your greatest enemies will desire it and those you treasure the most will without fail, abuse it.

Emily Thorne

Upon embarking upon a path of revenge, Confucius warns that one should dig two graves. Confucius was right. The second of the two graves was meant for me. I was only saved by my father's infinite love. I know now that revenge only brings darkness. I couldn't see the light until I considered my father's advice to try and forgive. It's not easy but my father once said that nothing worth doing ever is. Well, with one exception.
