Gladiators, the moment is finally here. It's time to pour out a nice big glass of merlot, because after seven wild-as-hell seasons, Scandal and our one true queen Olivia Pope are saying goodbye.
Seeing Olivia Pope brought to life on our TV screens every week was truly a gift. And not to be dramatic, but it changed 👏 peoples' 👏 lives 👏.
So as we close this chapter and tip our white hat to Livvie, here are a few of her most iconic lines to forever live by:
1."I am not a toy that you can play with when you’re bored or lonely or horny. I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy. If you want me, earn me! Until then, we are done."
2."I am very good at what I do. I am better at it than anyone else. And that is not arrogance, that is a fact."
3."If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. But you have to try, because if you try, if you leap and you try, and it doesn't work out, it's not on you."
4."I'm choosing me. I'm choosing Olivia. And right now, Olivia is dancing. Now you can dance with me, or you can get off my dance floor. I'm fine dancing alone."
5."I am many things, stupid is not one of them."
6."Speaking to me is a privilege. You do not have privileges."
7."My gut tells me everything I need to know."
8."I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love."
9."I'm never out of options."
10."Whatever happens, we do not give up. It is my name on that door, and I do not give up."
