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.


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.

[to Edison] Five, that's sexist and insulting. You'd never suggest Scooter Libby was screwing Dick Cheney. Four, the lengths you're going to try to twist this into a conspiracy are cause for concern. You should speak to someone about that. Three, the President is awake and talking and the suggestion that he isn't is partisan political crap that I thought you had enough integrity to rise above. Two, in the past three minutes, you have called me a criminal, a whore, an idiot, and a liar, so this is pretty much the last time we'll be speaking, so one, who I am or am not screwing, what I am or am not doing, is no longer any of your damn business.


James: I just called my boss and quit. I'm not a reporter anymore.
Cyrus: I'm not chief of staff anymore. Let's go get our baby.

[to Huck] Welcome home.


Becky: By the time I reach for my gun, you'll have put four bullets in me.
Huck: Five. One for the dog.

Liv, I won't let you down this time. I promise.


Edison: I am the leader of the Senate. If my job description requires, I won't hesitate to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. And guess what? I make the law. So you talk it over with whomever you need to talk it over with and you let me know when the President is ready to see me.
Olivia: Goodbye, Edison.

Scandal Quotes

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.

There is no us! There is no this! There is no Vermont! There is no jam! There's no future. Not anymore.
