[to Olivia] I'm not sure why you came to the White House. Did you show up here to awaken my conscience? Make me see the error of my ways? Because I'm awake. I see the errors, thank you.Fitz
I could be running Harvard right now. I had the job. I turned it down.Cyrus
Cyrus: I've just left a meeting with three staffers who think Kurkistan is next to Morocco. God I miss you. Also you can't be here.
Olivia: A young girl was brutally left to die--
Cyrus: Yes, dead girl, violence, murder, people are bad, I'm feeling emotions. The only reason I let you through those gates is because he's on the Hill right now. You can't be here. He's not doing well. He's struggling. He's suffering. And seeing you will make it worse.
Cyrus: You can't be here.
Olivia: I wouldn't have come if I didn't I need a favor.
Mellie: I want a seat at the table.
Cyrus: You have a seat at the table.
Mellie: The kiddie table. I want a seat at the adult's table like I was during the election. Or have you forgotten how things worked back then?
Cyrus: We've all made sacrifices, me as much as anyone. That was the election. This is the White House and in the White House, this is the way things work.
Olivia: Huck you didn't...
Huck: I didn't hurt him. Much. Anyway, they have him now.
Olivia: Huck if I opened a door that you can't close.
Huck: Doors are closed. I'm okay. I am. You don't worry about me. I'm handling it.
Olivia: Thank you.
Huck: No, thank you.
Quinn: [to Abby] I am not a murderer and I am not a liar, and I'm not going anywhere. So the sooner you get over it, the better. And I go by one name now and it's not Lindsay.
Harrison: [laughing, mocking] I'm Quinn, bitch.
Mellie: Get over her.
Mellie: You see her again, and I'll blow you away. And I'm an excellent shot, remember?
[to Fitz] Many a man has been undone by jealousy.Cyrus
Artie Hornbacher played us. For two days he wagged our dog. I'm not proud of that. But he played you for 16 years. Who knows what secrets he stole along the way, right out from underneath your nose. What a great story! The kind of story that leads to Congressional hearings and mass firings and books and movies. Juicy stuff.Olivia
As for why this happened, you'd have to ask Olivia that, and that would be a waste of time because she's off her game. Her gut is broken, and we have no idea what she's thinking, what's going on with her.Abby
Olivia: We fight this with the network, not in court. We stiffen their backbone, freedom of the press, unconstitutional intrusion of the right to privacy.
Quinn: A man's cell phone is his castle.
