Olivia: I'm playing the game and I'm playing it better than anyone.
Huck: And what game would that be?
Olivia: What?
Huck: What game would that be?
Olivia: The one where I win.

Cyrus: Red, you know I'd never tell you how to do your job.
Abby: Oh, yes. You would. Do it. Please.

The way this world works, the people is you and me. And Hollis and Mellie and Verna.

Cyrus

Olivia: This is not a fairy tale. This is not the happily ever after. If you're still alive, it's because he still owns you. It's because you're still useful to him. And he's going to find a way to use you against me.
Jake: Liv--
Olivia: Don't feel bad about it. He still owns me, too.

[to Cyrus] You are not going to grow old alone. You're never alone. I'm here.

Olivia

Abby: You'd never pay for sex would you? Have you?
Harrison: Everyone pays for sex, at least until they're in a relationship. That's how it works. I buy you dinner, I buy you drinks, it's not out of the goodness of my heart.
Abby: Why do men do it?
Harrison: Honestly? To never have to have a conversation like the one we're having right now.

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

Abby: Normal boyfriends do favors for their girlfriends.
David: Normal girlfriends don't dabble in aiding and abetting.

[to Huck and Quinn] We're in the White House. This is my turf. In this building you are no longer a zombie army of two under the influence of Olivia Pope.

Abby

Quinn: Is that enough? $5,000. Is that enough to kill someone?
Huck: No. But I'll do it for free if you want.
Quinn: You will?
Huck: I will.

So, I wish we'd never met. But we did. And I tried. I tried and failed. And tried and failed again to hide. To stop loving him. But I couldn't. I was weak. I hated myself. I wore this ring to remind me of my weakness. And when our affair was exposed, I had to follow my own advice and stand in my truth.

Olivia

David: I think this is your something big. I would love to forget about this whole thing. I would love to forget I ever met Wendy. I would love to forget I ever met you. But now, I need you. Because I'd be really terrible at prison. That's if I'm lucky enough to live that long.
Olivia: You're not just here for you. I know you David. This is about justice. This is about dusting off the white hat and putting it back where it belongs.

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.
