I know we haven't had a lot to celebrate here in the last few months. Sometimes it seems that the battles weren't winnable or at least not worth the blood spilled fighting them. But then a moment like this comes around and it makes you feel like it's all worth it. That we're finally stepping back into the light.

Olivia

Cyrus: You're worried about James cheating on me? That's...oddly sweet.
Mellie: Once you open that door, Cyrus, you cannot close it again. It changes you. Changes everything.
Cyrus: My husband's not your husband, Mellie.

Huck: Where are you going?
Marcus: With her?
Huck: No you're not. You're more of an office guy.
Quinn: Huck's right. This guy could be dangerous.
Marcus: Then I'll hide behind her.
Huck: Fine. Your funeral.

Marcus: She's a...
Huck: Total badass.
Marcus: I was gonna say trailblazer, but yeah, badass works too.

I was devastated when I found out Fitz was having an affair with you. I fell into a deep depression and the only thing that got me through was thinking that you were just a phase. Fitz and I, we could survive a phase. So I stayed.

Mellie [to Olivia]

You stood on the mountaintop. The ring of fire was around you. You played him like a fiddle. You held power in your hands. You were power. You had the Oval. My baby had the Oval. You were running the place and he was clueless! Tell me I'm wrong.

Rowan [to Olivia]

Quinn: Huck, why are you so mean to him?
Huck: He's normal.
Quinn: So?
Huck: He's a normal person, Quinn. We have to protect him. We can't let him be friends with us.

This is a Greek tragedy in the making. Winged mistresses flying too close to the sun.

Cyrus

Olivia: Huck, did Quinn hurt you on the inside?
Huck: Yes. But I hurt her too. We hurt each other.

Olivia: Mellie's let me visit him exactly once and then she revoked my privileges. I might not even get to say goodbye.
Cyrus: I'm going to say this once, and I better not ever have to say it again. Don't you ever again suggest to me that Fitzgerald Thomas Grant the Third is going to die. That is unacceptable coming from you. He calls you the love of his life. Don't you dare give up on him.

Fitz: Liv, I feel like...ashamed. Like I don't have a right to make jokes. Like I am the joke. 'The guy can't keep it in his pants.' Like my father, you know?
Olivia: Dive in. Own it. Mock your image.

Harrison: Gladiator?
Quinn: Suit. Yeah. Yeah, I know.

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.
