And even though I don't know you, Lori's got this annoying habit of meddling, so it seemed only decent...

"Scandal: Inside the Bubble (#4.3)" (2014)
Charlie: Being a superspy is freakin' lonely. I never used to care. It used to be fun. It used to be so good. It used to be better. Torture is a single man's game, right? Hacking up a corpse, that's something you do solo. But these days... Maybe it's the political climate. This president's all liberal and above board, There's less work. Or maybe it's I'm getting older. Maybe it was you. Being with you. But I wake up now, and I'm I'm frickin' lonely, Robin. Empty. Like there's a space in there. Hollow space. Crap I used to make fun of people for. Crap I used to shoot guys for. And I don't know what to You ever feel like that?

And I go MIA for a whole day and nobody even bats an eye? That is unacceptable. That is how Harrison died. Because we weren't vigilant. We didn't pay attention. We didn't notice when things went bad. So when one of us goes missing for 24 hours, The other ones freakin' look for them!

And I need to know exactly what you've been up to. But, before we start, I just wanna say I'm sorry. I'm so sorry because I'm gonna enjoy this.

Huck did you a favor. You still have all your fingers and toes. No drill holes anywhere. A few teeth are nothin'. So you don't eat steak anymore. Stop crying!
Quinn Perkins: Huck was the only person I had, and he hurt me. He hurt me. He hurt me. And now I don't have anybody. He hurt me.

Olivia Pope: How do you know?
Huck: That's how *I* would do it.
