    • QUOTES (3)

      • Cyrus: (Arguing about Defiance) You're willing to bring down the whole Republic because you feel guilty? You know what our electoral process is? It's magical! It's like believing in Santa or the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny — magical as long as they believe. What you're doing is telling the people that the shiny presents and the bulging stockings on Christmas morning are just mom and dad staying up all night to do the work. You're telling them we're Santa! We're the Easter Bunny! We're the Tooth Fairy! You're taking the magic away. You're ruining Christmas morning and the whole Republic is gonna come crumbling down because you're not tough enough to do what need to be done!
        Olivia: Get yourself in order, Cyrus. And find yourself a lawyer. ...A GOOD ONE!

      • Fitz: (on the phone) Olivia?
        Olivia: Yes.
        Fitz: Wanted to hear your voice. And I have some news. (silence) What's wrong? Something is wrong, I know you well enough to know.
        Olivia: You don't know. You don't know who I am. You don't know me.
        Fitz: Livvie--
        Olivia: Edison asked me to marry him. He gave me a ring.
        Fitz: Livvie--
        Olivia: I could... quit... go have some babies... live in the country or something... make jam
        Fitz: Make jam?
        Olivia: Have a normal life. Get some normal.
        Fitz: I asked Mellie for a divorce. (silence) Listen to me. Whatever is wrong, we'll fix it. Don't say you'll marry Edison. Not yet, just... wait, ok? Whatever is wrong, we'll fix it. Just say you'll wait for me. Liv... say you'll wait for me.

      • Abby: It's a ring. She's staring at a ring.
        Harrison: It is not! Let me see (they move so he can see)
        Abby: You think that Edison proposed?
        Harrison: Wife of a Senator. Not to shabby.
        Abby: Please! Husband of Olivia Pope.
