[to Mellie] You have so many qualities I despise, but I do admire your brilliance. So do the math, Mel. Fighting this, fighting me, will mean both of us deploy every weapon in our arsenals. Every lie, every secret, every juror on that bus. Mutually assured destruction. We'll be ruined. Now me, I'm a war hero, governor, two-time President. My bucket list is done. You? Your biggest accomplishment so far is breathing and smiling.

Fitz

People get betrayed, they betray.

Abby

Abby: Liv,
Olivia: What?
Abby: I'm...I'm going to hug you now. Don't say anything. Don't tell me not to because I'm going to hug you and you're going to stand her and take it.

You didn't want to tell me because you didn't think I'd be good enough at my job to handle it. Did you?

Abby

James: You’re a shameless monster.
Cyrus: Who loves you dearly!

[to Cyrus and Olivia] I can sign Fitz's signature in my sleep. I can do it perfectly. I've been doing it since he was governor. But I did not sign this paper lightly. I did not sign this without using my head. I'm not some man reacting out of rage and then thinking later. I am a woman. So I thought about it. And I made my decision.

Mellie

Let's just say that we did things, things that would make it hard for you to sing the National Anthem and mean in. In the name of national security, we were the bad guys.

Huck

[to Olivia] Baby Huck's choking.

Abby

[to Fitz] I could never hate you.

Olivia

Sorry to be such a bastard, Liv.

Cyrus

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.

Olivia

[to Cyrus] We got Poped, sir.

Scandal Quotes

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.

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.
