War is good for business and polls are harder to read buried under piles of cash.

Cyrus

Rowan: I want my bones!
Olivia: Who you are … what you have become, every single thing about you makes me sad. No bones for you.

If I ever hear about B-613 again Olivia, so help me god, I will not be so forgiving. Go. Get me my war.

Mellie

Mellie: You killed Luna Vargas?
Olivia: He shouldn’t have told you. You had deniability. He took that away from you.

Olivia: What are you doing?
Fitz: Whatever’s necessary.
Olivia: Did you not get my message?
Fitz: I’m staying.

You are a woman, a tactical thinker, a strategist, and a leader of the free world. So yes, this can be your call, and you will not make the same think below the waist mistakes as the 44 men who came before you because I will not allow it. That is my call. You are never alone. You have me.

Olivia

Are you Command, or are you someone's girl? You can't be both.

Jake

You don't have to like me Olivia, but you are a fool if you don't learn from me.

Rowan

Look at you! You're asking me for boy advice, your own father. That's how alone you are.

Rowan

Mellie: It's intoxicating, everyone always doing what I say. I started to think, I can do whatever I want, whomever I want, but that is exactly what they all thought; those old dead guys with their mistresses and their child brides. The pigs! And now, it's happening to me. It's a nightmare.
Cyrus: I never thought about it like that.
Mellie: Well, now you know. You're not the only one with issues around here.

Fitz: Girls like Zoey aren't just being ignored by the justice system, they're being ignored by the press.
Curtis: So you're saying the media's to blame for these girls going missing?
Fitz: No, Curtis. I'm saying the media's to blame for them staying missing, and for the fact that the only reason Zoey's picture is on TV tonight is because a rich, white guy is sitting next to her mother right now.

Olivia: So this newfound passion for finding missing black girls is just what? An excuse to see me?
Marcus: If it means that we're able to bring even one of these girls home, then who cares?

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

I know you, because the apple does not fall far from the tree, Olivia, poison though it may be.
