If you do not watch Scandal, you are missing out on one of the most engaging, entertaining, nerve-racking, and twisted shows on television today. Starring Kerry Washington in the lead role, the political thriller is created by Shonda Rhimes, the creator of How To Get Away With Murder. Known for making shows with some of the best female leads on television, Shonda Rhimes’ shows are one of those that make you mercilessly wait in desperation for a whole week before the next episode is out. Yet, we recommend you do not watch the whole season at once, as it may lead to severe insomnia.
In Scandal, Kerry Washington’s character – Olivia Pope – owns a crisis management firm that handles every scandal in the politically influenced Washington, D.C. As today happens to be Kerry’s birthday, we would like to go back to her best moments on the show, with a list of our favorite Olivia Pope quotes. Take a look and see for yourself how badass Olivia can be.
When ‘white hat’ was just a metaphor
Nobody messes with Olivia Pope.
When she gave Fitz the ultimatum
Not arrogant, just better.
Only the best for Olivia Pope
