Awesome: SCANDAL
  • Olivia's "I could have a reporter here, asking why you are prosecuting an innocent medal-of-honor winner. That was me threatening you."
  • Olivia and her team fighting against dictators, a Corrupt Corporate Executive, a Spoiled Brat who jumped the slippery slope, and a lot of evil people, and still being brave and fighting for what's right.
  • Abby reminding Olivia of who she is, after repeating calmly : "Well, I wanted to leave Charles.", she bursts and shouts everything she has kept on her, proving how much of an Iron Woobie and The Heart she is.
  • Congresswoman Josephine Marcus delivering a scathing speech about sexism in politics.
  • Mellie gives an amazing speech in "Randy, Red, Superfreak and Julia."
    "I just want to be clear that there are some things that I'm just not going to do anymore. Things that just feel like an insulting waste of time once you have held your dead son in your arms. Monitoring you is one of those things. So I'm saying when you see her, and you come home and you're all hot and bothered and you decide to pretend that you are a good family man so you climb into my bed and on top of me. I'm saying when you see her, you will tell me because I'm going to want some warning because I donít know if I can even imagine getting turned on by you right now. Oh and FYI when you stick your hand into my panties, another thing that I just donít do anymore is wax. So it's 1976 down there so you maybe wouldn't be turned on by me anyways. So the point is, when you see her you will tell me."
