Quinn, this is not a blind date. On blind dates I like to buy a woman dinner because it makes her more likely to sleep with me or give me a second date. When I buy you dinner, you'll know I'm interested.

Livie, I'm running. I'm winning. We are getting married and you are moving into the White House with me.

Fitz

Everybody has secrets, Abby, most of them aren't pretty. In our line of work, I don't judge. Neither should you.

Verna: You try so hard to get that man to walk away from you. Have you ever stopped to consider how painful it's going to be if you succeed? If he actually does walk away?
O: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Verna: We worked on the general election together, and I'm not stupid. And we've been through far too much together to pretend. And you're pushing him away because you think it's the right thing to do, as if right and wrong are fixed.

Huck: You look like you're going to throw up. Don't throw up in my office.
Quinn: I was doing a thing, for Olivia, and I screwed it up.
Huck: You screw up, you fix it. You're a fixer. That's the job.
Quinn: I lost a person. I need you to help me track them, or hunt them, or whatever it is you do to find someone right this instant.
Huck: You try their house? Try their house.

Quinn: Huck, I was worried about you, okay?
Huck: Why?
Quinn: What?
Huck: Why are you worried about me? I come to work, I do my job. I go home. I have appropriate emotional responses and I'm taking social cues for behavior. I am being normal. Why are you worried?

Mellie: I married you for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, til death do us part. There will be no divorce, honey.
Fitz: Do not push me.

You just expect me to bend the law for you once again out of blind faith and admiration. You pour a good bourbon, Olivia, but so does the dive bar down the street.

David

Are we gladiators or are we bitches?

Olivia

What you want is 15 Christmases on December 25th, 15 birthdays, 15 years of sleeping next to him and waking up with him. You want anniversary dinners, you want parent-teacher conferences, and school plays. You want fights over whose turn it is to wash the dishes and walk the dog. What you want, what you've always wanted, is to be part of his life. Now he's gone you want to be part of his legacy. But you aren't and you never were. And I can get you six million dollars to try and fix how much that hurts, but that is all that I can do.

Olivia

Quinn: A woman tells you to kidnap someone and you don't ask why? Is Olivia Pope really worth that kind of loyalty?
Huck: My girlfriend is missing and I'm trying to find her. Are you gonna help me or not?

[to Huck] You're important to me.

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.
