Jake: Hey, hey, don't cry.
Olivia: I'm not crying. I'm trying not to scream. I'm scared.

[to Quinn] All these questiosn you're asking, they have answers, but you don't want to know them. So stop being interested and stop asking questions. Stop. Stop while you still can.

Huck

Quinn: Where were you?
Huck: You have to stop asking questions.
Quinn: Look, I am worried about you.
Huck: [shouting] You have to stop asking questions! You're not worried about me, you're interested. You want to know what it feels like to do the things that I do. I see you. I see that look in your eye every time you ask me one of your questions about where I was and what I've been doing. You're interested. And maybe that's because you're able to see me, too--how my mouth has been dry for months, how I've been squirming and vibrating and it wouldn't stop until the other night when everything just stopped and I wasn't thirsty anymore.

[to Cyrus] I could have produced a segment on the President's heart at a time when the only organ people care about is his penis.

James

Jake: We're both wearing leashes, Huck. You and me and everyone else who has ever worked for that man. He owns us. Just like he owns Liv. But if we could get something on him, something big like murdering a guy--
Huck: No.
Jake: Why?
Huck: Because no one takes down Command.
Jake: No one's ever tried.
Huck: You stay away from Liv. Stay away from me.

Quinn: Huck, I was worried about you, okay?
Huck: Why?
Quinn: What?
Huck: Why are you worried about me? I come to work, I do my job. I go home. I have appropriate emotional responses and I'm taking social cues for behavior. I am being normal. Why are you worried?

Give any piece of trailer trash a push-up bra and a microphone and those stupid flyovers will eat it up like fried Twinkies.

Mellie

Quinn: Are we really going to--
Abby: Slut-shame a dead girl? All aboard.

We've had worse clients. I think. Haven't we?

Abby

[to Jake] I need to go back to doing what worked. Eyes straight ahead. No looing around corners. No peeping in shadows. No asking questions. No stepping outside the lines. I need to be a good girl.

Olivia

[to Olivia] You're safer if I'm here.

Jake

Olivia: This is not a fairy tale. This is not the happily ever after. If you're still alive, it's because he still owns you. It's because you're still useful to him. And he's going to find a way to use you against me.
Jake: Liv--
Olivia: Don't feel bad about it. He still owns me, too.

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.
