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.


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?


[to Harrison] The person they're looking for, the one they think shot the President? That's me.


Mellie: I don't want to go.
Fitz: We can't always get what we want, can we?

Fitz: What's the problem?
Mellie: I just don't want to go. I'm sick of smiling. I'm sick of acting like we're happy. I just don't want to go.
Fitz: Is it because she's gonna be there? Olivia? She got cleared by security an hour ago which I'm sure you know. Now suddenly you forced me to have this big party and you don't want to go because you're afraid of my mistress? Let me give you a fun fact. She's not my mistress anymore. So buck up. You won.

[to Edison] There was a guy before you. I'm not gonna talk about him, but there was. And it was serious. But we're done. It's over. So, I'm all in.


Harrison: Liv, you need to get down here.
Olivia: Harrison, you can do this. You're ready. I have every faith in you.
Harrison: Liv, you don't understand...
Olivia: You can do this. See it through.

You're gonna find someone that makes you happy, Abby. Don't worry. You are gonna find a good guy.
