Posted by Sage
All the fixers who independeeeent. Throw your hands up at meeee.
Scandal winter finale….go.
“Liv, we will find him.” Liv sits silently watching Jake and Fitz plan, looking not at all confident that they will.
“Did they show it to you? The place where your father kept me? Did you see it?” Mama Pope is back! And she’s got some complaints about the accommodations at Chez B6-13.
“Murder, terrorism, treason, to start…As for my father, hunt him, find him, and kill him.” You heard the lady.
“What did you do to him?” Ugh, Huck’s kid is kind of a crybaby tbh.
“And the vice president…” “Of the United States?” Not the conspirator you were expecting.
“There’s a special place in hell for woman who spout that entire quote to support their bad behavior.” YOU BETTER LET ‘EM KNOW.
“Elizabeth is in bed with your vice president. Both literally and figuratively.”
“‘Explicit gay sex’ is how we’re describing these photos.” You’re not wrong.
“So, Cyrus would basically own me.” “As opposed to just renting.”
“A kill card is the shut down procedure for B6-13.”
“Doesn’t the fact that we could go any minute make you just want to affirm life, Robin?” We all saw this coming.
“We need a fingerprint.” “Well, we do have a finger.” Quinn uses a severed finger to trick the scanner, like it ain’t no thing.
“I don’t need a gun, why would I need a gun?” I don’t know, maybe because of all the people who want you dead?
“The sun went down a long time ago and it’s not coming back up.” Poetry.
Andrew and Lizzie Bear have sex in her office. Gross. (Show me more.)
“Most important document of his presidency – completely artless.” Everyone’s a critic.
“Today, sir, I’m a joke. A punchline. I’m of no help to you.” Dammit, Cyrus.
“Thank you for your service, Cy. It’s been an honor.” I don’t think anything that happened in that White House could be called “honorable,” but I’ll let him have this one.
“Is it true that you’ve been subpoenaed by the Attorney General?” Abby has to be deposed by her ex. That won’t be at all awkward, surely.
“Do you have an alibi for the night of March 25th?” “Yes.” “Who?” “Leo Bergen.” AW SHIT.
And now, a brief slow jam interlude. “Myyyyy endless looooooveeeee…”
CHARLIE HAS QUINN’S CARD. Duh doy.
“What are you doing here?” “Songs in the Key of Life. Remember the first time I played this for you?” Actually, trying to forget everything about you, psycho dad.
He pulls a gun on her. “SIT.” So, we can call this charade officially over then?
“You can’t disappear, become a normal person. Because dad? You’re not normal.”
“COULD YOU BE MORE UNGRATEFUL?”
“It is your life that is sad. It is you who cannot be normal. It is you who has no comprehension of love.” I don’t know, guys. Haven’t we been having this same conversation for 6 or 7 episodes?
“So what? Your stomach turns every time you look at me? Well let me be the one to break it to you, Olivia. You are simply looking in the mirror.”
“Olivia? Watch yourself.” She picks up the gun. She won’t do it, but I wish she would.
She pulls the trigger – there’s no bullet.
“Are you kidding me Are you kidding me? You just shot your own father.” MIND GAMES.
“Stevie Wonder sang. And you were out in ten minutes. No matter how hard you try to deny it. You will miss me when I’m gone.”
“Oh, crap. My tooth.” “The new one?…I can’t kill you Robin.” “You hurt me.” “You hurt me first.” Aw. Their twisted relationship actually saved her life.
“You ruined Huck’s life.” “I guess I can…unruin it.” Charlie kept some B6-13 files for himself. Not Huck can prove his story to his wife.
“You have a phD in his crazy. You must have some idea where he is. Where he’s gone. I WANT SOME ANSWERS NOW.” Olivia still thinks she can squeeze something out of Mama.
“Girl. You need to move on. All you two do is talk about each other.” I cheered when she called Olivia “boo.”
“Cry me a river, Livvie. WHATEVER.”
“I’m thinking Europe. They have a long history of accepting failure and disgrace.” I hear there are some openings in Genovia.
