I want his head in the fire and I want to see him burn. I want to hand him the one piece of news that will destroy him and I want to watch his face when it happens.

Mellie

Harrison: Papa Pope. That's okay, right? I can call you Papa...
Rowan: No.

Fitz: Somebody out there wants me dead.
Mellie: [laughs] He thinks it's just out there.

Mr. President, how may I be of service?

Rowan

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: What would Olivia Pope say?
Abby: You don't get to run. You're a gladiator. Gladiators don't run. They fight. They slay dragons. The wipe off the blood. They stitch up their wounds, and they live to fight another day. You don't get to run. How was that?
Olivia: That was good.

Harrison: Jake Ballard. Dude could probably kill you with a bendy straw but at the end of the day he's just a normal guy. Put a fork in him.
Huck: Or a needle.

[to Olivia] We do what we have to do.

Huck

Do you have any idea how many times you've asked me to do things that I didn't want to do but I did them because you asked me to? B613 took away my family, Liv, my life, my name. They destroyed me.

Huck

Leo: Do you have any advice that doesn't involve insulting me?
Abby: No.

[to Olivia] I asked you to save me, and you said no.

Jake

Jake: I wish you'd just stood in the sun with me.
Olivia: Sometimes I wish that, too.

Scandal Quotes

Olivia: I have been riding and dying for you. I fixed an election for you. Sacrificed everything to keep you in office, we all did. Cyrus, James, Jerry, Harrison, Mellie. Every one of us. I was your mistress because you needed me.
Fitz: And I was willing to give it all up for you.
Olivia: Which is exactly the problem.
Fitz: I tried to give up my wife for you, my office! And you backed out every time.
Olivia: Of course I did. If you gave up the Presidency, what did I do all this for? Everything we did, I did, all of it, if you gave up the Presidency it would be a waste. Everything I've sacrificed to get you here, to keep you here, so you could be the best, so you could make history, so you could be the President you were meant to be. And you were. You were the President you were meant to be and then, when the true test came along, when I was taken because of you, you go to war? You sent thousands of innocent soldiers into harms way, some of them to their deaths, for one person.
Fitz: I had to save you.
Olivia: You didn't save me. I'm on my own.

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.
