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

You may be an animal, but I am a monster. And I am much more terrifying than you can ever imagine. And while I respect your position as First Lady, I will do whatever is necessary to make sure things go accordingly. So Mellie, do not ever speak the word defiance in my presence again.

Cyrus

Mellie: He's your husband.
Cyrus: He's a journalist. Inside this building he's a journalist and you know it and you know how I know you know it? Because you're a terrifying political animal who would eat off her own foot if it meant you could get ahead. A trait I respect. But the President is at the G8 in Tokyo and what is the rule when the President is out of the country? All roads...
Mellie: All roads lead to Fitz.

Verna: The stuff we did, it never goes away, does it? Like one big, bloody hospital gown.
Olivia: I prefer to think that anything can be fixed.
Verna: Then you're a fool.

Harrison: Women like a nice restaurant, it's a universal truth.
Huck: Will I need a reservation? It's tomorrow. That's too late to make a reservation.
Harrison: You just hacked into the NSA's mainframe and you don't think you can make yourself a dinner reservation?
Huck: Good point.

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.

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.
