Olivia: It's all in the rear view for me. I need to move forward. I am moving forward.
Cyrus: Moving forward...towards what?

Fitz

I was in the closet for 40 years. I spent four decades having sex with women, between the thighs of women, which I for one never enjoyed or quite understood. And that whole time I only ever slept with two men. One of them was the love of my life. The other was a prostitute, which was admittedly a terrible decision on my part.

Olivia: Your time as President will be over and you're worried about getting your mistress back?

Rowan: What?
Olivia: You could say hello.
Rowan: Hello, Olivia. What do you want?

Olivia: The fish rots from the head.
Fitz: What?
Olivia: Your boys in the Secret Service, they’re taking their cues from you because you’re the head of the fish. Reckless, negligent, selfish. You’re letting things get out of hand and your boys are following. What kind of example are you setting for the people who work for you, who follow you, for the country? For your son?

This is my day. I am the bride. You get me my hero moment.

Cyrus [to Tom]

Jake: Huck! You're one creepy bastard, you know that?
Huck: Yes.

Cyrus: Red, you know I'd never tell you how to do your job.
Abby: Oh, yes. You would. Do it. Please.
