Season 3 Quotes

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

Abby Whelan: David, look at me. Something's wrong. Something bad has happened to you - something terrible. You don't hide that from me, you don't lie about it to me, you give it to me. You let me share it. I love you. You are my heart. What happens to you happens to me.
David Rosen: I'm supposed to send an innocent man to jail for a carjacking he didn't commit. That's the price I have to pay for still being alive. But I can't bring myself to do it.
Abby Whelan: Oh, David.
David Rosen: He killed them right in front of me, Abby. Shelby, Vanessa, James - they're all dead and I'm alive.
03x10 - A Door Marked Exit Season 3 / Episode 10: - A Door Marked Exit

President Fitzgerald Grant: I'm screwing her, you know? Your daughter. Every chance I get. The things I could tell you, about the way she taste... She's quite a girl. Talented.
Rowan Pope: [huffs and snickers] You're funny. You're a funny, funny man
President Fitzgerald Grant: I am?
Rowan Pope: Or should I say 'boy'. You're a 'boy'. You've been coddled and cared for, pampered and hugged. For you it's always summertime and living is easy. Your daddy's rich and your mama's good looking. You're a Grant. You got money in your blood. You are a 'boy'. I'm a man. I have worked for every single thing I have ever received. I have fought and scraped and bled for every inch of ground I walk on. I was the first in my family to go to college. My daughter went to boarding school with the children of kings. I made that happen. You cried yourself to sleep because daddy hurt your feelings, because papa banged his secretary, because it hurt to have so much money. You spoiled, entitled, ungrateful little brat. You have everything handed to you on a silver platter and you squander it. You're given the world and you can't appreciate it because you haven't had to work for anything. So now you've decided that the one thing that you want is my daughter. My child! Mine! What I made! What I created! You can talk about what a great lay she is to try to get a response from me all you want, but guess what? I am actually, quite literally, above your pay grade, which means, that I know that you believe that you are in love with her, as wrong as you may be.
President Fitzgerald Grant: I do love her.
Rowan Pope: You love that she is a door marked 'Exit!' You Love that she is your way out. Because if you are with Olivia Pope, you don't have to fulfill you father's dream of being president. If you are with Olivia, you no longer have to be your father's son! An Apple never falls too far from the tree. You are always going to be Senator Grant's disappointing boy Fitz. She is always going to be the formidable Olivia Pope. Don't use the person that I made to make you into a man. You're a boy!
President Fitzgerald Grant: You don't know anything about me.
Rowan Pope: Sadly 'boy' I know everything about you. You disappoint me as a suitor for my daughter's hand.
