He can talk all he wants about a regular life. Some men aren't meant to be happy. They're meant to be great.

Cyrus

Olivia: Huck, what are you going to need to take care of this?
Huck: Uh, latex gloves, a 24-inch bonesaw, a skull chisel, an industrial meat cleaver, 3 dozen heavy duty trash bags, 10 bath towels, a 30 foot roll of plastic wrap, and two black coffees, extra tall. It's gonna be a long day.
Olivia: I want you to move him, not dispose of him.
Huck: Oh.

Cyrus: Let me get this straight. Highly trained Black Ops assassins broke into your home and tried to kill you and instead of, oh, making a run toward reason, instead of the possibility of death making you decide that maybe it's better to be single, you have decided that the killers were merely firing heart-shaped bullets made out of bubbles and candy to signify that you and your boyfriend Fitzy are MFEO, made for each other?
Olivia: Cyrus, you're being dramatic.

[to Olivia] Sit with me and watch me choose you. Watch me earn you.

Fitz

You may be an animal, but I am a monster. And I am much more terrifying than you can ever imagine. And while I respect your position as First Lady, I will do whatever is necessary to make sure things go accordingly. So Mellie, do not ever speak the word defiance in my presence again.

Cyrus

What's it going to be? Because I'm about to go on live television and I need to know what to say. How Presidential are my balls now, Cy?

Fitz

You're not their father anymore. And you're not Fitz anymore. You know who you are? You know who you've become? You're Big Jerry. You're your father. Everybody in this White House, Cyrus and me included, tiptoe around trying to figure out how to get on your good side. But you don't have a good side. You've turned into your father. So, you should understand how your children feel considering how much you hated your dad. They didn't want to come and so I told them they didn't have to. Deal with it. Put another glass of scotch on top of it and just deal with it.

Mellie

Olivia: Your time as President will be over and you're worried about getting your mistress back?
Fitz: How many times do I need to tell you that you're more than that? Come back to me. Forgive me. I love you.

Harrison: [to Huck] We didn't want to bother you while you were...
Abby: Shaking off the crazy.

Olivia: Cyrus, I can't talk.
Cyrus: Why not?
Olivia: Because Hollis Doyle's daughter has been kidnapped.
Cyrus: Karma.

Quinn: We've been here all night. Don't you people ever sleep? Don't any of you have husbands? wives? kids? lives?
Harrison: No.
Quinn: Oh.
Harrison: Gladiator. In a suit.

Mellie: Tell Fitz he has 36 hours to convince me in person that he regrets the unfortunate choices he's made and truly wants to recommit himself to his wife and children. If he doesn't, he will have the pleasure of seeing the First Lady of the United States call her husband a whore-loving bastard on national television.
Cyrus: You wouldn't.
Mellie: Call my bluff, Cy. I dare you.

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.
