"You’re a boy! You’ve been coddled and cared for and pampered and hugged. For you, it’s always summertime and living is easy and daddy’s rich and your mama’s good looking. You’re a Grant! You’ve got money in your blood. But you are a boy! I’m a man! I’ve 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’m 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 that you want is my daughter. 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. You are always going to be Senator Grant’s 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 are a boy!"
Rowan Pope to Fitz Grant, Scandal (Season 3), "A Door Marked Exit" (via heart-addictions)
