Olivia Pope : [sitting stunned in a hospital hallway] We're going to win the election now. They lost their child. America will rally behind them.
Cyrus Beene : We're going to win. I hadn't really thought about it.
Olivia Pope : I did. A child is dead, and that's the first thing that popped into my head.
Cyrus Beene : I was going to let that church blow up with everyone in it.
Olivia Pope : How did we get like this? When did we stop being people?
Cyrus Beene : Were we ever people? Or did serving at the pleasure of the president just help us to shed our pesky skins and unmask us as the monsters we really are?
President Fitzgerald Grant : [practicing his speech] Members of the Hightower family, distinguished guests, my fellow Americans. It is a great honor and privilege for me to be here with you today. Today we remember and say goodbye to a man who loved his country, madly. A man who worked to better his country, profoundly.
Cyrus Beene : [letting a call going to voice mail] You've reached Cyrus Beene, please leave a message.
