Olivia: I hate you.
Fitz: I know.

Mellie: What do you think? What do you want? If you could have anything...
Fitz: I want a divorce.

[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

Quinn: I went home and my apartment was surrounded, cops and FBI agents taking out all my stuff. A woman standing outside told me that a girl who lived there blew up a building and killed seven people.
Harrison: If you were innocent, you could've just called a lawyer.
Abby: You did work with a bunch of them. Also, I hear they're in the phone book.

The upsetting thing about being as educated as I am and as intelligent as I am is that being the First Lady is profoundly boring.

Mellie

I'm asking you to be an adult. Stop holding your breath. Quit stomping your feet. It's time to pick up your toys like a good girl and act like the First Lady of the United States of America.

Cyrus

Fitz: Thank you for your service, Cy. It's been an honor.
Cyrus: The honor, sir, was mine.

Leo: Yahtzee!
Abby: Did you just say Yahtzee?

Abby: I cannot cry in the White House.
Olivia: You can cry if you want to.
Abby: Press secretaries can't cry! It's, like, a rule!

Fitz: Maybe I find a convent in Switzlerland and stick her in it.
Olivia: That did not work when my father tried it with me.

Therapy requires telling the truth, Cy. And you don't tell the truth.

James

Liv, I won't let you down this time. I promise.

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

[to Cyrus] It hurts until it doesn't. You think it's going to break you, but it won't. You may not sleep as well at night, but you will be fine. Numb, but numb and fine are the same.
