Check my file. Half my clients have your pay grade or higher which means half my clients would happily intervene on my behalf and kick your ass in whatever special way their office allows. Which is why I suggest, Director Osborne, you leave my apartment immediately.

People get betrayed, they betray.

Abby

You can't change the choice you made, all you can do is not let it ruin you.

Olivia

Betrayal always has a price.

Olivia

Where your husband is dipping his singing pen these days isn't really my concern.

Cyrus [to Mellie]

Cyrus, do your best.

Olivia

Olivia: I'm apolitical you know that.
Cyrus: Is your vagina apolitical?

Quinn: You're good at this...stalking people.
Huck: You'll get there.

I will not be responsible for an untimely heart attack...take a breath.

Olivia

[to Quinn] I used to live in a box outside the Metro and before that I dismembered people for a living. Right now I smell. When the rain stops I won't smell. I'm fine.

Huck

Will: I love her. The day Pete brought her home ten years ago I wasn't even supposed to be there. I was supposed to be on a plane. Sometimes I wonder if I'd just been somewhere else. We denied it for months because that's what you do. You deny it. You pretend it's not happening. You pretend it's all above board and it's appropriate and the next thing you know you're having sex in the coat closet at your brother's engagement dinner. Pete loves her. She's his wife. And she and I, well, we have what we have. It might not be much but it's what we have.
Olivia: You have nothing. You have a pile of secrets and lies, and you're calling it love. And in the meantime you're letting your whole life pass you by while they raise children and celebrate anniversaries and grow old together. You're frozen in time. You're holding your breath. You're a statue waiting for something that's never going to happen. Living for stolen moments in hotel hallways and coat closets and you keep telling yourself they all add up to something real because in your mind they have to but they don't. They won't. They never will. Because stolen moments aren't a life. So you have nothing. You have no one. End it now.

Abby: Don't think this means anything.
David: Don't worry. I don't.

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.
