Fitz: Something happens and you're the one I want to talk to.
Olivia: You don't want to talk to me.
Fitz: I only want to talk to you.

The upsetting thing about being as educated as I am and as intelligent as I am is that being the First Lady is profoundly boring.

Mellie

Look, it's not too late to pull back. Couldn't we just kill another intern? It wouldn't be that hard. A bad one. The worst one.

Quinn

Mellie: They want to go public.
Cyrus: Aren't you part of 'they' now? One-third of some secret, unholy political trinity.

Mellie: That is not you cheating on me. That is you...
Fitz: That is me being in love with another woman.

Mellie, I know the situation is difficult, I do. And I'm so, so sorry. But we have a job to do here, and in order for me to do my part effectively, I'm going to need you to refrain from referring to me as a whore. At least in front of my face. Alright?

Olivia

Olivia: You shouldn't be here?
David: Why? Because I'm the US Attorney for the District of Columbia and may be asked to investigate the President's affair with you? I left that hat at the door.

[to Olivia] I am a monster, but honey, I am your monster.

Cyrus

Fitz: You are going to be my First Lady.
Olivia: I can't leave them. They need me. I'm their Gladiator.

We went too far. My people--Huck and Harrison and Abby and Quinn--I took them too far over the wrong cliff. We went so far that I don't know that we can get back, but you can get back. Run with Mellie by your side. You can win with Mellie by your side.

Olivia

[to Olivia] The love of your life is a red-handed, cold-blooded killer. That is what you're dealing with. That is who you love.

Cyrus

I've moved Heaven and Earth to save you from yourselves. I have lied for you. I have stolen for you. I have cheated for you. I have killed for you. I have almost died for you. And you, you two are so stupid and romantic and high on your own doomed love, Romeo and Juliet, Dear Diary nonsense that you won't even save your own lives, but I am being dramatic?

Cyrus

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.
