Olivia Pope Quotes
Fitz: I was unavailable. You liked me unavailable.
Olivia: I don't know you available.
There is no us! There is no this! There is no Vermont! There is no jam! There's no future. Not anymore.
You're the biggest bitch I know. Don't tell me you can't do this.
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.
Olivia: Whatever you say about my father, you say it in front of me.
Jake: Okay. The plan is to find your father, and when I do, I'm going to look him in the eye and put a bullet in his head.
Olivia: No wedding dress, no flowers, and no vows. And I'm keeping my name.
Fitz: Good. Because I'm only marrying you for your money.
Olivia: We're not ready.
Fitz: You're not ready. And you never will be.
Abby: If you take the stand, you could end up going to jail.
Olivia: And if I get married? What in the hell do you think this is?
[to Abby] We're not ready to get married. It'd just be a last minute, 'get out of jail free' card. I don't want that for us and pretending that I do is just another lie.
So, I wish we'd never met. But we did. And I tried. I tried and failed. And tried and failed again to hide. To stop loving him. But I couldn't. I was weak. I hated myself. I wore this ring to remind me of my weakness. And when our affair was exposed, I had to follow my own advice and stand in my truth.
Olivia: I keep asking myself 'When did it happen? When did I turn right instead of left? What choice was it that decided? When exactly did I do the thing...the one step? What flap of the butterfly's wings brought me to this moment. How did I get here?' Because I can't seem to retrace my steps.
Olivia: I'm scared.
Jake: Look, at some point, you're going to have to leave this place, face the music. You wanted to be with him. You wanted to be with him so much that I--what's changed?
Olivia: What's changed?
