Cyrus, do your best.

Olivia

[to Fitz] I could never hate you.

Olivia

Edison: Honesty isn't a strategy, Olivia.
Olivia: Saying 'honesty isn't a strategy,' is a strategy.
Edison: This is who I am.
Olivia: I know, and it's refreshing and bracing and very Jimmy Stewart.

Cyrus: You're evil.
Mellie: You're welcome.

Ian: How much do you think you'll go for? $500 million?
Olivia: $500 million? I'm a little insulted.

[to Marcus] The mayor's wife is upstairs lying in a pool of blood while my team erases evidence of a crime scene so I'd say it takes a lot to surprise me because this is my job. This is what I do. Now you know what I'm about.

Olivia

[to Quinn] I used to live in a box outside the Metro and before that I dismembered people for a living. Right now I smell. When the rain stops I won't smell. I'm fine.

Huck

Rowan: There's something about Jake that reminds me of myself at his age. I must admit that I wasn't the best at respecting the schedule of others, especially when the others were...lady friends.
Olivia: Okay, done.
Rowan: Sometimes you have to let a young lion roam free...
Olivia: So done!

Huck: Is there artificial sweetener in that?
Abby: People and their secrets. Between this one and Olivia, it's like we're living in the Soviet Union. Hell, I'm an open book. What about you, Huck? What's your secret?
Huck: Artificial sweetener makes rats spit up blood?

[to David] No one wants to see you succeed more than I do, but you can't just talk about wearing the white hat. You can't just fight the good fight. We live in the real world. Remember that.

Pat

Rowan: Re-entry is always hard. You emerged from deep cover. I mean, it wasn't covert ops. You weren't a spy. But I know the feeling. I know it very well. You come back, you re-enter to find the world kept spinning without you. You go to the places you used to go and you see the people you used to see and it's like something is missing. But really, everything is missing. Somehow everything is different. Everything is...
Olivia: Colder. Everything is colder.

This is my office. I'm the President. They can shoot me if they want to, but I'm not going anywhere because the people of this country elected me to this office and the people deserve to see me and know that I'm in charge.

Fitz

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.
