    • James: Are you insane? I'd be a fugitive. I'm not made to be a fugitive. I'm not made to break rules. I've got Asthma. I'm made for 5 star hotels and room service. Fugitives don't get room service.

    • Verna: (at her hospital bed)You are not the President.
      Fitz: What are you talking about?
      Verna: Defiance county. Hollis Doyle rigged the voting machines. We all knew. We all helped cover it up.
      Fitz: "We"?
      Verna: Don't you pretend you don't know who. You're naive. You're pampered. You sail through life clueless as a child. But you are not stupid.
      Fitz: Mellie. Cyrus. (Verna makes a gesture to keep going) Olivia?

    • Olivia: (at Verna's funeral)Hi.
      Fitz: Hello.
      Olivia: I'm sure your eulogy will be wonderful. You always find the perfect words.
      Fitz: Did you need something?
      Olivia: I just wanted to say... I gave the ring back. Told Edison I won't marry him. I'll wait for you, Fitz. For as long as you need.
      Fitz: Oh that... I changed my mind about that.
      Olivia: What?
      Fitz: Don't wait for me.
      Olivia: Fitz--
      Fitz: I don't know what I was thinking... Screwing your mistress is one thing, but marrying her? That's political suicide. Really? I mean... you believe that my presidency is more important than anything else, right? You must. You've worked so hard to get me here.

    • Edison: (knocking at Olivia's door) Uhm... I thought you'd like a ride to the funeral.
      Olivia: I have a car coming, so...
      Edison: Liv... (Olivia doesn't answer) So that's it? We are done?
      Olivia: I... I have your grandmother's ring. I kept it safe right here.
      Edison: I've given you this ring twice, and both times you gave it back.
      Olivia: Edison...
      Edison: Tell me you don't want to be married. Tell me that being a senator's wife is too much. Tell me that you don't want a family. Tell me why I've been wasting my time. Tell me something!
      Olivia: I'm sorry. Edison, I'm really sorry. I could marry you. I could be a senator's wife. I'd probably be happy. I could probably give all this up and live in a country house and have babies and be normal... I could. But I don't want to! I'm not built for it. I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want... I want--
      Edison: What? What?! What do you want, Olivia?
      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.

    • Cyrus: Fancy seeing you down here.
      Mellie: Why?
      Cyrus: You have a new baby.
      Mellie: You have a new baby and you're at work.
      Cyrus: Yes, but...
      Mellie: ... but you're a man.
      Cyrus: I was trying to find a nice way to say "Yes, but I don't like babies".
      Mellie: Nobody likes babies.
