Scandal

Harrison: We're out of our depth. Liv runs with the big dogs. And you know, I'm starting to think...
Abby: What?
Harrison: Liv worked in the White House. The President was shot. Huck's in jail for doing it. One of the richest men--Hollis Doyle--might be behind it. This is next level stuff. Grassy knoll-level stuff.

[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

Pat: I just wanted to see how things were going.
David: I can't tell you because telling you would be a violation of the Patriot Act and I might end up in the basement of the Pentagon being beaten and then waterboarded to within an inch of my life. Not that that ever happens.

[to Cyrus and Olivia] We all got in bed with the Devil together and nobody wants to go to Federal prison. So I wrote a letter and I signed it. I broke the law. I broke the Constitution. And I would do it again.

Mellie

[to Cyrus and Olivia] Because we let that snake, Hollis, play in our garden for so long we can't turn him in to the Feds, or turn him over to the cops, or to the courts and wait for justice to be served. Because we have to protect Fitz. We have to protect secrets.

Mellie

[to Cyrus and Olivia] I can sign Fitz's signature in my sleep. I can do it perfectly. I've been doing it since he was governor. But I did not sign this paper lightly. I did not sign this without using my head. I'm not some man reacting out of rage and then thinking later. I am a woman. So I thought about it. And I made my decision.

Mellie

Olivia: Do you understand that we live in a democracy? With laws and rules and civil discourse? This is not Nicaragua. You can't just--
Cyrus: What, steal the White House? Yes, we can. It's been done before. Will be done again.

I'm a US Attorney, gentlemen. I represent the United States of America. The United States of America is in this room. So you need to watch how you treat the prisoner on American soil.

David
