Scandal

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

Cyrus

[to Olivia] Let's not play innocent here. Fitz is clean. Fitz walks on water. Fitz makes the fishes and the loaves, and people like Hollis, me, and you...don't roll your eyes at me. You are one of us Olivia. We march behind him, We sing his happy tune. And then we pick up our hatchets and we chop the Judases into bloody little pieces and dance around the corpses because that;s our job. That is what we do. We take care of Fitz. And we don't do it because we are believers, which we are. We don't do it for the rush or the high or the power, which we are most certainly junkies for. We do it because Fitz can't. He cant't do it. If he could do it, we wouldn't worship at his altar. People like Fitz, they go down in history. People like us, we create the history. We run this world so he can lead it.

Cyrus

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

Fitz: Do you think I'll make a good President?
Olivia: I think you'll make a great President.

Sally: It is not easy being President.
Fitz: Thank you, Sally.
Sally: You are welcome, Mr. President.

This is my office. I'm the President. They can shoot me if they want to, but I'm not going anywhere because the people of this country elected me to this office and the people deserve to see me and know that I'm in charge.

Fitz

Olivia: You almost died.
Fitz: Yes.
Olivia: Don't do it again.
Fitz: Okay.

Olivia: Do you even want to be President?
Fitz: Obviously...
Olivia: You're running like you're being chased. You're not running like you want to cross the finish line first, and so I'm asking you, do you want it? Or are you just wasting everyone's time, and money, and energy, and faith, and hopes, and dreams?

Hollis: I may be a son of a bitch, but Fitz is clean as a whistle. Am I right, Cyrus?
Cyrus: He's the real deal. A patriot. A bleeder.
Hollis: How rare is that? How often does that come along?
Verna: Once in a generation, if you're lucky.
