You are a woman, a tactical thinker, a strategist, and a leader of the free world. So yes, this can be your call, and you will not make the same think below the waist mistakes as the 44 men who came before you because I will not allow it. That is my call. You are never alone. You have me.

Olivia: So this newfound passion for finding missing black girls is just what? An excuse to see me?
Marcus: If it means that we're able to bring even one of these girls home, then who cares?

Olivia: How's Vermont?
Marcus: Cold. White.
Olivia: No, I mean how's Fitz in Vermont.
Marcus. Cold. White.

Olivia: I need you to look into Fitz. He's back, no warning. Shows up on my doorstep saying he's got some case he needs my help with.
Jake: And you think that's strange, a man who hasn't gone for three minutes, let alone three months, without wanting to see you?

Olivia: I can still take you down.
Cyrus: And how would you do that?
Olivia: One word: Harrisburg.
Cyrus: Two words: Andrew Nichols.

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

Huck: Your guy...he's coming out.
Olivia: What? guy...
Huck: I never considered it before, but yeah, you were made.

Huck: And what game would that be?
Olivia: What?
Huck: What game would that be?
Olivia: The one where I win.

Mellie: You were a good mistress. Probably a great one.
Olivia: Well, I am an over achiever.

Olivia: This isn't happening again.
Jake: Yes it is.

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.
