Fitz

Olivia: I made a mistake.
Fitz: We both did. It won't happen again,.
Olivia: I was talking about Defiance.
Fitz: That wasn't a mistake. That was a betrayal. We are done. I may not be able to control my erections around you but that does not mean I want you. We are done.

[to Olivia] Everything you've ever done for as long as I've known you has been tailor-made to hurt me. So I'm done. I'm done with you. I'm done with your people.

David

David: How much do I owe you?
Olivia: What?
David: For your services? Or did you take a commission when I sold my soul to the Devil?

[to Cyrus] Are we done discussing your hurt feelings? Because I'd like to get back to saving American lives.

Fitz

Olivia: Work helps. So does exercise. Stuff that numbs you, keeps you from thinking too much. Dating also helps, but, it also helps to remember that he hates you and it helps to try to hate him too.
Abby: And that works?
Olivia: I was talking about you and David.

Mellie: He can play with that baby for hours. I don't know how he does it. I don't have the patience.
Cyrus: Me either.

I think he knows. I think he knows what we did. I'm pretty sure...I haven't slept in ten months. I have our last conversation on a loop in my head. I think he knows what we did, Cyrus.

Olivia

What do you think she wanted from me? That we faked the moon landing? That a Starbucks tall is really a small? She wanted Defiance, Liv.

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.

Scandal Quotes

Mediocrity is not an option for me. I don't want that and neither should you.

Olivia

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.
