Are we gladiators or are we bitches?

You’re funny. You’re a funny, funny man. 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 the living is easy. Daddy’s rich, your momma’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 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.
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 your 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 Grants 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…You disappoint me as a suitor for my daughter’s hand.

Scandal will be moving to a new time slot this fall!

Due to the introduction of a new (and I’m sure fabulous) show created by none other than the fabulous Shonda Rhimes herself, we Gladiators will get to join OPA an hour earlier this fall.

Scandal will now be airing at 9 PM Eastern time, following Grey’s Anatomy at eight and the new criminal drama, How to Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis.

Congratulations to Shonda for dominating Thursday nights on ABC!

What’s wrong?
You pace in circles when something’s wrong. When you’re just thinking it’s back and forth. When something’s wrong, circles.
Did you need something, Mr. President?
You know you used to sound sexy when you call me Mr. President. Now it sounds like I’m just a gym teacher.
Did you need something, Mr. President?
The Sally Hemings-Thomas Jefferson comment was below the belt.
Because it’s so untrue?
You’re playing the race card because I’m in love with you? Come on! Don’t belittle us. It’s insulting and beneath you and design to drive me away. I’m not going away.
I don’t have to drive you away. You married and you have children. You’re the leader of the Free World. You are away by definition. You are away. You’re unavailable.
So this is about Mellie?
No, no, no! This is- I smile at her and take off my clothes for you.
I wait for you. I watch for you. My whole life is you. I can’t breathe because I’m waiting for you. You own me, you control me, I belong to you…
You own me! You control me! I belong to you.
You think I don’t want to be a better man?
You think that I don’t want to dedicate myself to my marriage?
You don’t think I want to be honorable? To be the man you voted for?
I love you. I’m in love with you. You’re the love of my life.
My every feeling is controlled by the look on your face.
I can’t breathe without you. I can’t sleep without you.
I wait for you, I watch for you. I exist for you. If I could escape all of this and run away with you?
There’s no Sally and Thomas here. You’re nobody’s victim, Liv. I belong to you. We’re in this together.

My thoughts

Tonight’s Scandal definitely made me hate Mellie a little less. When you see all the shit she’s dealt with to get Fitz in office, I could see it being a slap in the face when Fitz isn’t even showing up to get reelected. She really is doing all of the heavy lifting. I’m wondering if he knows about Mellie’s rape but I’m gonna assume not.

I still am curious why her loyalty lies with a man who admittedly doesn’t love her. Why didn’t she divorce him and start her own political career? Why is she trying so hard to salvage his?

I give nothing adjacent to a fuck about Quinn 

I hope they throw her ass into the damn hole

I hope they have her ass saying “752” in a fetal position

That’s what her ass gets for trying to play Harriett the Spy


Hah! I can’t with the “752” comment!

I’m a little over Quinn too.
