Jake: Won't order takeout. I have no idea how she's surviving.
Fitz: Not much of a chef.
Jake: Excellent with a corkscrew.

Mellie: I'm running for Senator of Virginia.
Abby: Well, that's...history making. Good for you. Good for Virginia, ma'am.
Cyrus: You think so, Red?

Huck: Where's Jake?
David: It's just the two of us. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You can be Newman. I'm fine with Redford.

David: Jake, you gave me those files. You said 'go get the bad guys.'
Jake: Rosen, we are the bad guys.
David: Not anymore.

I fired you. I was right to fire you, and if you can't handle that, if you can't handle me doing my job, me having some power, if dating a woman who's one of the big dogs is too hard for you then I'm fine being dumped.


Quinn, don't worry. It's done. I had a choice. I made it. I chose Liv.

[to Olivia] Just because I don't work at OPA doesn't mean we don't talk. Huck says you carry a gun around inside your apartment. Jake and Quinn have barely seen you. You don't return my calls. The bad guys have been winning like crazy. You could use something good right now.


Susan's smart and good, actually good, white hat good. She's smart and she's good and she's...weird. But it's kind of a good weird. We just have to show the Senate Committee that and to do that we need you. You won't even have to step foot in the White House, I promise. And it's not for him. You're not doing this for him. You're doing this for me. And for Susan Ross. And for you.


[to Olivia] Susan Ross quit and I fired Leo which I think means I also broke up with him.


Huck: I'll take care of it.
David: You? You got us into this! I'm not saying that critically. It's just, you know, factually true. You're taking it critically aren't you?

Scandal Quotes

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.

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.
