      Fitz and Olivia crackle on screen together. The chemistry between Tony Goldwyn and Kerry Washington is amazing. I love that Fitz was so jealous in this episode. Kerry Washington is amazing as the tough superwoman who only kryptonite is the President of the United States.

      • Alyssa: I don't buy it.
        David: Which part?
        Alyssa: The part where you think a jilted girlfriend would never go on a killing spree. 'Cause let me tell ya: bitches be crazy!

      • Olivia: Quinn, buy Artie a suit. Slim fit, single-breasted, 2-button, navy. I want him to look polished, not one colander hat shy of a crazy person.

      • Fitz: You're upsetting the CIA and NSA, my guys from the State Department, and you're using old boyfriends to dig up secrets on the intelligence committee.
        Olivia: I am not--
        Fitz: Senator Davis was your boyfriend from 2002 to 2006! You lived together in Georgetown and then New York. You had an engagement ring. And you were seen with him yesterday, looking fairly cozy, from what I hear. You two screwing again? Is he everything you ever dreamed? (he turns and starts walking)
        Olivia: Stop walking. Stop walking!
        Fitz: (he stops, looks at her, leaves his gun and starts kissing her against a tree)
        Olivia: (after making up for a few seconds, she pushes him away) I am not yours! I don't show up places because you want me! I am not yours. This is over. (she walks away and leaves him standing and looking at her)

      • Olivia: (after being taken by Secret Service to some place where Fitz is hunting) Where are we going?
        Fitz: We are hunting.
        Olivia: Do I get a gun?
        Fitz: I'm not giving you a gun.
        Olivia: That doesn't seem fair.
        Fitz: Life isn't fair!
        Olivia: What is your problem?
        Fitz: What is my-- I don't have a problem.
        Olivia: Then why are Secret Service agents physically removing me from my home at 5 in the morning?
        Fitz: Because they do what I say.
        Olivia: I don't do what you say.
        Fitz: Why are you helping Artie Hornbacher?
        Olivia: And I don't discuss my clients with you.
        Fitz: You don't discuss anything with me anymore!
        Olivia: Are you angry that I haven't been taking your phone calls, or because I'm helping Artie Hornbacher?
        Fitz: I am angry because you are committing treason! I am angry that you're behaving like a traitor to your country!
        Olivia: To my country or to you?

      • Mellie: You can't cancel the hunt.
        Fitz: I could, if you were ill. My pregnant wife not feeling well.
        Mellie: Never felt better. The party loves when you hunt.
        Fitz: Every year, I have to spend a day squatting in some weeds--
        Mellie: A marsh.
        Fitz: Shooting helpless chickens--
        Mellie: Ducks.
        Fitz: So the gun crazies can feel good--
        Mellie: The good people of the NRA.
        Fitz: About some nut job--
        Mellie: Citizen.
        Fitz: Carrying a Kalashnikov assault rifle in the back of his truck.
        Mellie: Exercising the freedoms afforded to him by the United States constitution.
        Fitz: You should go shoot a duck.
        Mellie: I should. I'm an excellent shot.

      • Edison: (answering the phone) Let me guess... some third cousin died , then you went out of the country.
        Olivia: You're wearing pinstripes.
        Edison: Yeah, see, that doesn't explain the three years of not returning my calls.
        Olivia: Pinstripes on prime time?
        Edison: Oh. You joined the fashion police. That's where you've been.
        Olivia: I don't care what you wear. Just know that no one will hear a word you're saying when your suit is moving, vibrating, across their screen. Also, you are sighing every time Senator Gilbert speaks. Don't. It makes you sound condescending and elitist, which frankly, doesn't exactly matters, because I'm way too distracted by the--
        Edison: Pinstripes. Yeah.
