Huck: This is where they took you.
Quinn: Yeah.
Huck: No, I mean, this is where they took you. Lindsay Dwyer. When they do something like that you can't go back. They said seven people died in that explosion. They were wrong. It was eight. Let's go home.

You just expect me to bend the law for you once again out of blind faith and admiration. You pour a good bourbon, Olivia, but so does the dive bar down the street.

David

Fitz: Can we skip to the end?
Mellie: Excuse me?
Fitz: You come in, I hear how I'm failing you, I yell, you yell, I feel guilty for yelling at the mother of my children, I apologize, you're cold, and then you leave. Can we skip right to you leaving?

Olivia: Huck, what are you going to need to take care of this?
Huck: Uh, latex gloves, a 24-inch bonesaw, a skull chisel, an industrial meat cleaver, 3 dozen heavy duty trash bags, 10 bath towels, a 30 foot roll of plastic wrap, and two black coffees, extra tall. It's gonna be a long day.
Olivia: I want you to move him, not dispose of him.
Huck: Oh.

Being on the short list is not like winning. Winning is like winning.

Cyrus

Quinn: You saved my life, I get that, but I still don't know how, or why, and until then I might as well still be wearing that freaking orange jumpsuit.
Olivia: You want answers, fine, you'll get them. But you have to trust me when I tell you that it's in your own best interest that you don't have every piece of the puzzle right now.

Olivia: How are you?
Fitz: I'm serving out my sentence in the crown jewel of the American prison system. How are you?

Olivia: I'm saying 23 hardworking Americans are staying late at night so you can call me.
Fitz: You want me to hang up?

Abby: What do you think, Huck? Ready to work across the hall from the Molotov Mistress?
Huck: Olivia says we trust her, we trust her.
Abby: Company man.

Harrison: Gladiators in suits, remember? You know I've gotta make you say it.
Quinn: Gladiators in suits.

Olivia: You want to know what I'd do?
Fitz: No, I don't need you.
Olivia: Spin it. Get out of it. Don't let it seem like she boxed you into a corner on the war...there's only one leader of the armed forces and his name is Fitzgerald Grant. If you go to war, it's because you want to go to war.
Fitz: I hate you.
Olivia: I hate you, too.

Fitz: Liv?
Olivia: No, pretend I'm somebody else. Somebody you hate. Hang up.
Fitz: You hang up.
