Cyrus: You don't ask your child when their bedtime is and you don't listen to your children when they say they don't want their vegetables. You threaten them and you make them eat their vegetables.
Abby: You're a terrible father.
Red, how does leadership come? Is it given to you? No. You want to lead, be the leader. Everyone else will automatically become the followers. You want POTUS to fall in line, to behave. Be the adult. He'll become the child. That's the secret of the Oval Office, Red. You want the power? You want to be the kingmaker? You want to be the hand that rules? You are the adult. He is the child.Cyrus
[to Cyrus] Dammit, are you drunk? Are you day-drinking? Because I really need some help here!Abby
Jake: How does a guy facing a murder charge even get bail?
Quinn: By being rich and white.
[to Fitz] You placed Olivia in a dangerous position. You outed her. You thought by throwing me out of the White House and moving her in you'd be making this grand gesture. Finally she wouldn't be just a mistress anymore. But the minute she stepped foot through these doors, the minute she moved in here, she became what we all become when we live here and what is that? Yes, a statue. Inhuman. Discussed from every angle, viewed, exposed. She's not just a mistress now. She's America's mistress.Mellie
It's Liv. She's the best in the business. The President's about to get Poped.Abby [to Liz]
I want you. I want us. But I want to slow down. I want our business handled. I want our problems fixed. I want to be ready before the world is watching because once it is, once we're in that spotlight being picked at and scrubbed and stretched in every direction we will never get the chance to make things right. If we are broken going in, we're not getting out. They will destroy us. That's reality, Fitz.Olivia
Olivia: Have you been waiting for me to come home? Am I your plan?
Huck: You always fix me.
Olivia: Huck, did Quinn hurt you on the inside?
Huck: Yes. But I hurt her too. We hurt each other.
[to Mellie] You have so many qualities I despise, but I do admire your brilliance. So do the math, Mel. Fighting this, fighting me, will mean both of us deploy every weapon in our arsenals. Every lie, every secret, every juror on that bus. Mutually assured destruction. We'll be ruined. Now me, I'm a war hero, governor, two-time President. My bucket list is done. You? Your biggest accomplishment so far is breathing and smiling.Fitz
Mellie: I know without a doubt that you and I together, a team, is what's best. For us. For the country. For our beautiful children. And I'm so glad you see it too.
Fitz: I'm divorcing you.
[To Mellie] You don't matter to me. And now you also don't matter to the most powerful man on the face of the Earth.Liz
