Episode Quotes

Rowan Pope: When the Republic is in danger, there's no place for spite.
Cyrus Beene: If you're talking about the president's affair with Olivia...
Rowan Pope: This is bigger than that. What do you know about Operation Remington?
Cyrus Beene: Only that it was a classified mission that Fitz flew with Jake Ballard in Iran, back when they were in the Navy. Most of it's redacted.
Rowan Pope: This Is what really happened on that mission.
Cyrus Beene: [opens and begins reading] Oh, my God.
Tanner Shaw: [reporting the news] Joining us now, the reporter who broke this story, Vanessa Chandler of the "Post's" styles section. Vanessa, we have a name now. Former White House communications director Olivia Pope. How sure are you that she's the woman who had an alleged affair with President Grant?
Vanessa Chandler: It's just one source, but it's a good source. A source in a position to know the true identity of the president's mistress. And, well, you know how this works. It's just a matter of time before others come out of the woodwork and more details emerge.
Tanner Shaw: Can you give us an idea of how high up this person was in the administration?
Vanessa Chandler: No, but I will say that my source is 100% sure that Ms. Pope is the president's mistress, and if they're right, and obviously I believe they are, it's only a matter of time before more details come out.
Mellie Grant: The upsetting thing about being as educated as I am and as intelligent as I am is that being first lady is profoundly boring. What did you call me? Ornamental? Not functional? I am a rose dying on the vine here. Give me a war to run or the CIA or something, but I use the copious amounts of free time I have to think.
