You really want to pretend we don't all know how this movie ends? It's not going to be a surprise, Sir. It's rather predictable, really, she's Olivia. You're Fitz. At a certain point in time, the two of you are going to find yourselves together in the same room. The ancipation relentless, isn't it? We all know what happens next. We've seen this movie a hundred times.

Cyrus

We both know it's not my turn anymore. We both know we're not standing in the sun. We both know you're standing in the shade of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. As long as we're back, it's his turn, despite the fact that I'm the one you like to ride. That I'm the one who makes you moan. The one who reaches you in places that he can't begin to touch. Isn't that right?

Jake

[to Olivia] Hoping is bad for Randy, so do not come back here unless you are back for good.

Huck

Olivia: How do I choose the box to bury my friend in?
Jake: There's no wrong choice. You just pick.

[to Rowan Pope] I can never tell if you're lying. I can never trust my gut when it comes to you.

Olivia

'We'? We're not a team, Liv. You're just Olivia Pope. There is no 'And Associates.' Not anymore.

Abby

Do you need to validate your broomstick or can you find your way out on your own?

Cyrus

Olivia: You want to stand in the sun with me.
Jake: I want us to stand in the sun together.

Jake: Take me with you. Run away with me. Save me.
Olivia: I am in love with someone else.
Jake: You're leaving everything else behind. Leave that behind too.

It's me. I'm the thing that needs to be fixed. I'm the thing that needs to be handled. I'm the scandal. And the best way to deal with a scandal is to shut it down.

Olivia

This is me doing what I do best. I'm handling this. I'm fixing this. I have been over every option. I have looked at it from every angle, and I have hoped and prayed that I was wrong. I have tried to pretend that I didn't know what the answer is, but I do, so now it's time for me to stand in my truth.

Olivia

Olivia: It's me. Everything that's happened, none of it would be happening if it weren't for me. My mother, my father, the man I love, an innocent boy dying, churches being blown up, you being thrown in the hole. The only common denominator is me. I'm at the center. I'm the eye of the storm.
Jake: So you're the devil, is that it? And this is your pity party?

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.
