- Trivia & Quotes
Olivia: (answering the phone during Fitz's press conference) Harrison, I can't really talk.
Harrison: It was a setup. I... it was all a setup. Charlie took the Cytron card.
Olivia: Which means the mole has the Cytron card.
Harrison: Which means the mole has Defiance. Liv, I'm so sorry.
Olivia: Tell me we have a name, Harrison.
Harrison: We got a name.
Olivia: Who is it? Who is Albatross?
Harrison: Billy Chambers. Billy Chambers is the mole.
Olivia: Your Statement of Candidacy papers... the official documents you should have filed months ago with the G.E.C. in order to run for reelection? They're sitting on your desk, unsigned.
Fitz: So? Those papers are practically ceremonial. I can file them at any time.
Olivia: But you weren't going to.
Fitz: I was.
Olivia: No, you weren't.
Fitz: What does it matter now?
Olivia: It matters.
Fitz: I'm going out there tonight and telling the american people that I am not running for a second term. It doesn't matter.
Olivia: It matters. Were you planning to run or not?
Fitz: Why are you so--
Olivia: Were you planning to run or not?
Olivia: Were you planning to run... or not? (Fitz keeps quiet and looks the other way) Fitz? Look at me.
Fitz: This is not a conversation we are going to have. I chose you.
Olivia: I know you want to be with me. I believe that, but--
Olivia: Listen to me. If you don't want to be President anymore, if that's why you're quitting, then that's okay. That's great. That's bold and brave. Is that what's happening? Are you being bold and brave? Because I don't think so. I think you're quitting because you don't believe you can win on your own. I think you believe you are everything your father said you were. And I think you believe you don't have what it takes to be a legitimate President. And I think you wouldn't believe any of that... You wouldn't be afraid , you wouldn't doubt yourself, if it weren't for Defiance, if it weren't for what we did to you in Defiance, what I did to you in Defiance.
Fitz: I already made my decision! I already... Why can't you just let this go?
Olivia: I did this to you! And if you give up your chance to run again, I will blame myself every day of my life. And one day, so will you. We stole that election. We stole your chance. Take it back. Run. Run and win!
Fixer: (to Mellie) I am very good at what I do. I can move mountains and work miracles. But I can't make your husband love you.
Fitz: (talking about his planned speech announcing he won't run for reelection)It's gonna be alright.
Cyrus: We'll be a lame duck administration.
Fitz: We'll leave proud of the work we did.
Cyrus: We'll be a joke.
Fitz: Hell, we're not even supposed to be here. Need I remind you? You stole this ride. At least we got some mileage out of it.
Cyrus: True. And the back seat did see some action.
Fitz: (laughing) Yeah, that was my fault (they both start laughing)
James: (at a press conference) Why not simply deny the accusation?
Cyrus: The President considers this a private matter. If the President addressed every question about his personal life, we may as well turn the Oval Office into a daytime talk show set.
