Season 3 Quotes

03x14 - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Season 3 / Episode 14: - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Quinn Perkins: You come for some more teeth? A finger?
Huck: I came here to kill you. Put you down. You cracked Liv's safe, I saw you on the camera. You're broken. You're a threat. So I came here to put you down. But then I was sitting here, and I realized... I saw you on camera. I trained you, I made you. And you are good, Quinn. You're special, talented, which means I shouldn't have seen you on camera. You would have de-magged the optics, looped the visuals, cut the upload. There's no way I would have seen you on camera unless you wanted to be seen.
Quinn Perkins: I don't know what you're talking about.
Huck: You wanted me to see you. You wanted us to know what Jake was doing, what B613 was doing. You're not broken. Somewhere in there, you're still a gladiator.
03x01 - It's Handled Season 3 / Episode 1: - It's Handled

Rowan Pope: You've gotten yourself into a bit of trouble, Olivia, and I'm here to fix it.
Olivia Pope: No.
Rowan Pope: [speaking very rapidly] Now listen to me. You raised your skirt and opened your knees and gave it away to a man with too much power. You're not rare. You're not special. Your story's no different than a thousand other stories in this town, so you know how this goes.You could call this in your sleep. First they'll smile, be warm, sympathetic, on your side, letting you know that they will fight for you. They will lull you into a false sense of security. And then, once your belly is exposed, They will GUT you and everyone you know. And they will be swift about it. And by the time you realize you should be fighting back, well, you're already bleeding to death. That is the presidency versus you. Whose victory do you think they will fight for? Whose body do you think they will bury? That is the presidency versus you.
Olivia Pope: He would never [she's cut off]
Rowan Pope: [Mocking] "He would never" You and I both know that he is not in charge. He is never in charge. POWER is in charge. Power got him elected. I know more than you could possibly imagine about things of which you cannot dream. He told you that you would be first lady, and you believed him! Did I not raise you for better? How many times have I told you 'You have to be' - what? You have to be - what?
Olivia Pope: Twice...
Rowan Pope: [shouting] What?
Olivia Pope: Twice as good.
Rowan Pope: Twice as good as them to get half of what they have. Sleeping with that! For God sakes! You know to aim higher. At the very least, you could have aimed for chief of staff, secretary of state! First lady! Do you have to be so mediocre?
