That is what I do and there is no one better at it in the entire world than I am!Olivia
Olivia: I went with Jake.
Fitz: So I am a failure as a father and a husband and a man. Good to know. Heavy is the head that wears the crown they say.
Fitz: Liv, where did you go?
Fitz: Where did you go? You just...took off for two months all alone?
Olivia: I...yes. I did. I needed some time alone. After everything I just needed to be alone.
Olivia: Burying yourself in work isn't always the best thing when you lose someone.
Fitz: Running away isn't the best thing either.

[to Tom] When I say bring me the head of John the Baptist, I expect the head of John the Baptist. I do not expect excuses. Not from my golden boy.Rowan
Abby: You make it hard for me to do my job. You undermine me here with Olivia Pope at every turn. You keep secrets from me. You make me feel...small.
Cyrus: Red, there are things that happen here in this big White House with this particular President that you will never, ever know about. Some of those things, many of those things, will involve Olivia Pope. Several of those things will make it hard for you to do your job, but you are a patriot. You are a fighter. And so you will soldier on. As for feeling small, I don't do that to you. I suspect jealousy does that to you. My advice on that is this. You are not Olivia. You will never be Olivia. Hating Olivia for your own shortcomings will not change that fact.
[to Huck and Quinn] We're in the White House. This is my turf. In this building you are no longer a zombie army of two under the influence of Olivia Pope.Abby
Fitz: Maybe I find a convent in Switzlerland and stick her in it.
Olivia: That did not work when my father tried it with me.

[to Karen] This isn't a job. This is a favor.Olivia

Karen: Wait, what are we doing?
Olivia: Getting you into college!

Olivia: I thought we could talk about how our days went.
Jake: That sounds very normal.

Huck: I'll look for you. The next time you go M.I.A. I'll look for you.

Olivia: I have been riding and dying for you. I fixed an election for you. Sacrificed everything to keep you in office, we all did. Cyrus, James, Jerry, Harrison, Mellie. Every one of us. I was your mistress because you needed me.
Fitz: And I was willing to give it all up for you.
Olivia: Which is exactly the problem.
Fitz: I tried to give up my wife for you, my office! And you backed out every time.
Olivia: Of course I did. If you gave up the Presidency, what did I do all this for? Everything we did, I did, all of it, if you gave up the Presidency it would be a waste. Everything I've sacrificed to get you here, to keep you here, so you could be the best, so you could make history, so you could be the President you were meant to be. And you were. You were the President you were meant to be and then, when the true test came along, when I was taken because of you, you go to war? You sent thousands of innocent soldiers into harms way, some of them to their deaths, for one person.
Fitz: I had to save you.
Olivia: You didn't save me. I'm on my own.
- Permalink: You didn't save me. I'm on my own.
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
