The Sweetest Revenge Quotes: Victoria's Best Bitchery, Nolan's Sassiest Snark and More

Get More: Commentary, Lists

With the biggest episode of ABC’s Revenge airing tonight at 10/9c — you know, a certain engagement party where someone sure is dead there on the beach – we thought it’d be a good time to reflect on Queen Victoria’s best bitchisms, Nolan’s choicest quips and every quote in between. (Having seen this week’s riveting hour, we can promise that you can definitely expect a few more signature one-liners, so stay tuned for that. And check TVLine after the show for a preview of the Fire & Ice Ball aftermath.)

Nolan | “Baby steps….” [Puts his arm around her on beach]
Emily | [Icily shrugging off the gesture] “Don’t do that.”

  • So, is Nolan in love with Jack? Or Emily? Or ust the dream of a happy ending for the two of them. I don’t entirely get his obsession with Jack – is it because he thinks Emily should go for happily ever after with Jack? I think it goes without saying I love, love Nolan. The actors is wonderful.

  • There was a scene between Tyler and Conrad when they were in Conrads office and he was trying to blackmail him. He said something like you people are starting to rub off on me. His delivery was perfect….

  • Great show and I love the quotes. Smart and witty writing. I’ll be very disappointed if it doesn’t get renewed.

  • The episode where Emily was getting revenge on the senator.
    Nolan:”You’ve ruined his career.”
    Emily:”I’m not trying to ruin his career, I want to ruin his life.”
    May not be word for word right but this has been my favorite line.
