We want a red light indicating when time is up. A light and a buzzer.

Olivia

Red? Re-e-e-e-e-d. I'm not interested anymore. Say less words.

Cyrus

Abby: So that's the...
Huck: that's the gun that shot the President.

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

I could be running Harvard right now. I had the job. I turned it down.

Cyrus

I will not be responsible for an untimely heart attack...take a breath.

Olivia

George: You don't give up, do you?
Olivia: No, I don't.

Honey, I'm gonna call you honey because I can't remember your first name and I don't care. Honey, you want to be reasonable about this.

Cyrus

Fitz: Can we think about finding a way to spend time together now that there's...hope?
Olivia: Well, it depends.

Fitz: Something happens and you're the one I want to talk to.
Olivia: You don't want to talk to me.
Fitz: I only want to talk to you.

You're ticking, sir. You're ticking. You know how I know you're ticking? Up until you saw this picture, you've been happy. Lately, you've been happy, and don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed it. Not because of the happiness but because it's been weird, like seeing a grandma in a bikini or a Democrat with a Bible. You're happy, but we both know that happy people are rarely actually happy, unless they're morons. You are a brilliant man, a Rhodes scholar and a PhD, which means you're acting happy because she won't take your calls, and you won't admit that it bothers you and god knows what else that goes on in the Shakespearean drama that is the women in your life. You're ticking, sir. You're a bomb stuffed in a teddy bear waiting to explode.

Cyrus

You son of a bitch. She is my best friend. She's my best friend and she is trapped somewhere and horrible things are happening to her and you are making snide jokes because what? Because you got your feelings hurt because we broke up? Someone kidnapped my best friend. Listen to that sentence, David! Someone kidnapped my best friend. No. Someone kidnapped my only friend. She is my only friend. I don't have friends. I have Liv and something bad has happened to her and I didn't even get a chance to be her gladiator because no one bothered to let me know that she was missing, that she was in trouble, that she needed me. All the times--All the times that she saves me. All the times. I would save her, David. I would go over a cliff for her.

Abby

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.
