22 Scandal Quotes From Season 3 Episode 7



In this week’s episode of Scandal Olivia Pope was barely a footnote to the action, but that didn’t mean there was even a single dull moment in the 60 minute television ride. The title of episode 7 was “Everything’s Coming Up Mellie,” but the subtitle should have been “Innocence lost”. I have been taken aback by many a moment in this season of Scandal but last night my head was spinning and tears were flowing for Mellie, Quinn, Fitz and Olivia. I was screaming out at the Television as though I were watching a particularly brutal football game. Shonda Rhymes proved last night that no character is safe in her grasp. As an audience member I felt battered and bruised when the show was over, but that is nothing compared to what the Scandal characters were feeling on screen and what they clearly will be experiencing in the episodes to come. It was so unbelievable that it almost felt like a dream- or really a terrifying nightmare-when I woke up this morning, however, one look at the voluminous Scandal quotes that I collected from the Season 3 episode 7 and there is no question that it all happened and it was as bad as I thought. But don’t just take my word for it. Read through 22 of the Scandal Quotes that jumped out and smacked me in the face last night. (And if I missed one, please, by all means share it in the comments below.)



1. “Please, I haven’t had time to do my hair.” ~Cyrus


2. (What is this?)  “I think it’s our first step to the White House Baby.” ~Mellie


3. “I am surrounded by murders that’s how I am. I’m surrounded by men who have a body count. I’m standing in a graveyard made by people I thought I loved. That is how I am.” ~Olivia


4. (“Rowan, how do you know Rowan?” ~Fitz)    “You don’t know everything about me either.” ~Olivia


5. “Voters can always spot a phony. You can’t be who you’re not.” ~Cyrus


6. “I’ve grown up with southern boys like Daniel Douglas my whole life. They always want someone sweet and innocent who only turns into a whore once the bedroom door closes.” ~Mellie


7. “You’re way better at picking out hookers then you are china patterns.” ~Cyrus


8. “I want to kill you and have sex with you at the same time.” ~James


9. “I’m going to hug you and you are going to stand here and take it.” ~Abby


10. “I’m a political warrior. I slash. I burn. I kill.” ~Cyrus


11. “You’re the wife.” ~Cyrus


12. “Okay I’m going to give you a tip and this is for free because I’m done. If he is going to be Governor If he’s going to be a serious politician if he is going to walk corridors of power He is your charity work He is your full time job. You’re the wife help him.”  ~Cyrus


13. “I am doing this whole Vanna White routine for him.” ~Mellie


14. “My father used to beat me. I don’t beat him. I’m a decent father.” ~Big Jerry


15. “A little exercise in CYA Cover Your Ass.” ~Big Jerry


16. “I thought, hey let’s get some estrogen on this seal and see what happens.” ~Mellie


17. “If you knew the sacrifices that I have made the things that I have given up and the pieces of myself that I have given away for you and you treat me this way. You declare war on me and you shame me and you make me beg for scraps when I have done nothing but fight for you… You don’t have to love me, but we are in this hell together and the flames are burning both of us with equal intensity baby so the least you could do is be my friend. Just a little bit. The least you could do is show up. Show up for me. Show up for me Fitz.”  ~Mellie


18. “Ask my wife anything you want she is more than capable of handling herself, but if you want to attack her, to treat her like a witness on a stand, you are going to have to go through me first.” ~President Fitzgerald


19. “I had the affair. I damaged our marriage and caused the public grief and I should be the sole carrier of the blame and outrage of this embarrassing fiasco. To place it elsewhere, to blame Mellie for speaking out is false. For Mellie to accept that blame or take responsibility for any of it would be equally false. I made the mistake and I have apologized for it. I am moving on. We are both trying to move on and all we can ask is for the American people to do the same.” ~President Fitzgerald


20. “Huck let me torture someone once. I got what he needed.” ~Quinn


21. “You belong to B613 now. Welcome to Wonderland.” ~Charlie


22. “Our daughter’s been asking about you.” Rowan


MamaPope is alive. Big Jerry raped Mellie and may have fathered her first born. Fitz just found out that Rowan is Olivia’s daddy. Quinn is up the B613 creek without a paddle. Suit up gladiators, because I believe our beloved characters are in for the fights of their TV lives. What do you think is coming on the horizon?
