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

Cyrus

I'm disappointed in you, Quinn. You've been a bad girl and I need to know exactly what you've been up to. But before we start, I need to say I'm sorry. I'm so sorry because I'm going to enjoy this. I'm going to love it and I don't want to.

Huck

Fitz: I was unavailable. You liked me unavailable.
Olivia: I don't know you available.

[to Fitz] You're one of the good guys. She calls them White Hats. You don't think you are, but you are. It's why she loves you. I'm one too. It's why she loves me.

Jake

You just let a murderer out of prison, not for the good of the Republic, but because you wanted to. Because it personally served you and I don't see any impeachment hearings and I don't see a wedding ring on that finger. You are Rowan's greatest achievement. You have become exactly the woman he raised you to be. Power hungry, entitled, dangerous, and the beauty of it is you don't even know it.

Jake [to Olivia]

You need to grow some Presidential-sized balls.

Cyrus

[to David] No one wants to see you succeed more than I do, but you can't just talk about wearing the white hat. You can't just fight the good fight. We live in the real world. Remember that.

Pat

There isn't a person in this building who isn't willing to go to extremes for you.

First Lady

Help me. Put on your white hat and and go after Billy Chambers with whatever you think you can make stick...Get some justice for Amanda Tanner and Gideon Wallace. Please.

Olivia

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.

Huck: Who are you?
Becky: I'm Becky, Like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm? Nice to meet you, Huck, of Huckleberry Finn.

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.
