[to Huck] You're important to me.

Olivia

[to Olivia] Don't insult me by calling me your job. Because I'm not your job. I am your family. I am your gladiator. And that is not a job to me. That's who I am. And right now you need me, so no questions asked, no matter what, whatever you need. Give me some marching orders, Liv.

Harrison

Harrison: What do you need? Whatever it is that's going on, whatever it is that you're thinking about when you're sitting in here all by yourself, tell me what you need and I will do it, no matter what.
Olivia: You don't want to get involved.

Abby: Spies listen to the radio?
Huck: Anything high-tech you can break into. With a radio, you can't trace where it comes from, you can't trace who's listening. The radio is how we talk to each other, how all spies talk to each other. All around the world. You listen every day and every day there's no message. Years go by and decades and there's no message and then one day you listen and the code word comes.
Abby: And then what happens?
Huck: It's time to come home.

Let's just say that we did things, things that would make it hard for you to sing the National Anthem and mean in. In the name of national security, we were the bad guys.

Huck

Huck: We are in my wheelhouse now...I'm supposed to be a ghost. If my name, and not my real name, but Huck, my name, the alias that goes with this life at Pope and Associates, if my name is on a list, it's time to disappear. So I can't stop.
Pope: Crosby sent the list to me, the check is in my name, too, so whatever this is, whatever I'm supposed to protect you against, that's in my wheelhouse, and we can fix this.

Abby: Huck was a trained killer spy.
Harrison: I don't think 'was' enters into it. Once a killer spy, always a killer spy, right?

Olivia: I don't like it when the bad guys get away.
Cyrus: Then you shouldn't have come to Washington.

Cyrus: James is working at the White House press corps to punish me.
Olivia: So separate your work life from your personal life.
Cyrus: Really? How's that working out for you?

Cyrus: I'm mad at my husband. And I need a drink at dinner.
Olivia: Dinner is popcorn. But lucky for you I just opened a Bordeaux that'll bring tears to your eyes.

Edison: I can stop dropping by, I can stop calling, I can stop asking. But you never tell me to stop.
Olivia: Edison, I don't want you to stop. I want you to keep asking. But I'm not ready to say yes.

I'll have my office call your office to schedule that dinner for the four of us in the residence. Sounds like fun.

Cyrus

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.
