Javi's a good kid. He'll be a good man. And by staying away, I've been a good father. You failed, and the sad part is that you know it, and you're not doing anything about it. So like I said, you are nobody's father.

Huck [to Rowan]

There is no gratitude in parenting. I don't know why we do it.

Rowan

You are no one's father. And I am not your son.

Huck [to Rowan]

Marcus: Everybody loves a good holiday party, right? What'd you guys do last year?
Quinn: We passed around a bottle of vodka on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and then we went to work because that's what Gladiators do.
Marcus: Bah, humbug.

You should never apologize for being you.

David [to Susan]

Olivia: I believe him. My gut says he is telling the truth.
Jake: Of course you do, otherwise you'd just be a fool with daddy issues.

Susan: Oh! You want me to put my foot in my mouth!
Fitz: Yes, Susan. I do.
Susan: Well, why didn't you say so!?

You should know...I hope you know...I did my best for you, Olivia. I take tremendous pride in who you have become.

Rowan

We're living in a new world, Red. A world where Olivia Pope is judge, jury, and executioner.

Cyrus

Olivia: Cyrus, Fitz and I together, we have an actual relationship. This is what a couple looks like.
Cyrus: You have the Oval. This is what power looks like. He's not the President anymore, Olivia. You are.

You have pulled off a clean, bloodless coup in the United States of America and no one is the wiser. That is one for the history books.

Cyrus [to Olivia]

Here's why you are so brilliant. You didn't have to give up your career. You got to move into the White House. You are not saddled with any of the prisoner duties that come with being First Lady. You come and go as you please and, wait for it, I'm not the guy behind the girl behind the guy, I'm the guy behind the girl. Fitz isn't even in the picture.

Cyrus [to Olivia]

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.
