Scandal Season 2 Episode 9: "Blown Away" Quotes
Becky: We're the same, you and me. Except that I shot the President. That's a big job.
Huck: You want me to go down for this.
Becky: Come on. Don't you think if I wanted you to go down for this you'd be in lockdown in the deepest, darkest hole in Gitmo by now? Sweetie, I could've paid for that hotel room with your credit card. I could've spread your DNA all over that place. I could've killed you, made it look like you shot the President and then yourself, but I didn't. I was supposed to, but I didn't.
Huck: How come?
Becky: Because I like you, Huck.
Huck: Who are you?
Becky: I'm Becky, Like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm? Nice to meet you, Huck, of Huckleberry Finn.
[to Cyrus] It's been 4 hours without a political hit in your veins. I thought you might be huddled in the corner mainlining C-Span and trying to snort shredded pieces of the Congressional record up your nose.James
Verna: Is there something I can do for you?
Sally: You can take care of yourself, for your own good, for the good of the country. You can focus on your health, concentrate your energies on getting better. Such a stressful job can't be good for you at a time like this.
Verna: I'm not stepping down from the bench.
Sally: Justice Thornton, your President is making a request of you. Wouldn't be patriotic not to acquiesce.
Verna: You're gonna be President for about the next 15 minutes, and then your time will be done. And I will still be on the bench. If I have to rule from the confines of an iron lung, I will be on the bench.
Sally: The seat your butt is filling on the Supreme Court belongs to me to fill as I see fit. It was promised to me during the campaign, and for someone other than a left wing, baby-killing, homosexual-loving, godless creature such as yourself. I want it now, and you will give it to me.
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?
Quinn: So I guess we're both Patsy's then. Me for the Cytron explosion, you for shooting the President. Makes you wonder if they're related.
Huck: What do you mean?
Quinn: I mean, whoever set me up for the Cytron explosion must have been pretty unhappy I slipped through their fingers. If they knew you were the guy who took me, first of all they'd be pissed, but more importantly, if they did their homework they'd know you were ex-CIA, and who better to pin the assassination on than someone who's been tossed aside by the government. So who were they, Huck? Who set me up?
Huck: I don't know.
Quinn: You don't know because you never asked, or you don't know because you're still pretending it wasn't you who flew me across the country in Verna Thornton's jet and dumped me in a D.C. hotel room with a brand new identity?
Huck: I never asked.
I have another office, Mary. You're standing in it and I'm not leaving here until President Grant, the only President of this great nation, leaves his hospital bed.Cyrus
Olivia: Huck, I know you love this girl, but I have to ask. Is there any chance she was involved in setting you up?
Huck: No. I'm trained to detect lying and all that aside, I know her. I know that she would never do that to me. Never. She's in trouble. Someone grabbed her to lure her to that hotel room. They knew I would come for her. Someone has her, someone professional who kills for a living. Who's good enough to do it with a remote sniper rifle.
Quinn: Someone like you? That's what you mean, right? Someone like you.
Abby: So that's the...
Huck: that's the gun that shot the President.
Olivia: What did you do?
Huck: What I'm trained to do.
I'm new to the field of remote controlled sniper rifles. Is there a trade magazine they send out to enthusiasts, psychopaths, assassins?Abby
[to Harrison] The person they're looking for, the one they think shot the President? That's me.Huck
