Olivia: I'm working. I'm gladiating.
Quinn: You're getting your expensive pants dirty. What are you doing here?

Justice or your career. I can only get you one. So what do you want?

Olivia

Harrison: Jake Ballard. Dude could probably kill you with a bendy straw but at the end of the day he's just a normal guy. Put a fork in him.
Huck: Or a needle.

David: Does this mean you're in?
Jake: I was never out, Rosen. But this means war, you know that, right? We're the good guys, but you won't always be able to tell. That's what it's going to take.

Olivia: I'll wait for you, Fitz. For as long as you need.
Fitz: I changed my mind about that. Don't wait for me.

Cyrus: You could call a friend.
Olivia: Are we? Still friends?
Cyrus: I need a favor.

I'm not asking the commander-in-chief. I'm asking the married man who used to sleep with my friend, what exactly he has done with the man she is currently sleeping with.

Abby

Olivia: I keep asking myself 'When did it happen? When did I turn right instead of left? What choice was it that decided? When exactly did I do the thing...the one step? What flap of the butterfly's wings brought me to this moment. How did I get here?' Because I can't seem to retrace my steps.
Jake: Liv...
Olivia: I'm scared.

Jake: How does a guy facing a murder charge even get bail?
Quinn: By being rich and white.

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

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.
