Dinah "Laurel" Lance/Black Canary Quotes
I'm not so consumed with vengeance that I blame Thea for Sara's death. I blame Malcolm Merlyn.
Laurel: When Zytle hit me with Vertigo, I saw Sara. She was alive and she was calling me a fraud. I was crazy to think that I was fit to wear Sara's jacket, so much as follow in her footsteps.
Felicity: You're right. I hope I'm not out of line here. But, I think Sara wore her mask just as much to hide her demons as she did to help people. I don't see that with you. You have a light inside of you that Sara never had so maybe you should stop trying to be Sara and just be yourself.
Laurel: Thank you.
- Permalink: You have a light inside of you that Sara never had
Laurel: I know what you're gonna say, but I risked my life for this city while you were away, so that should earn me some respect.
Oliver: This isn't about respect and it's not about you risking your life. I understand that you miss Sara and I understand that when you go out there like this all of that pain goes away.
Laurel: It's the only time it ever does.
Oliver: That relief is not real. It's a drug.
Laurel: If you're implying...
Oliver: You're an addict and just like with booze and pills, that high that you're chasing every night is endangering your life.
Laurel: Go to hell, Oliver. You don't get to play that card with me. Ever! And if there is anyone who is anyone who is hiding the pain of real feelings and real life, it's you!
Arrow: What do you think you're doing?
Black Canary: Your job, apparently!

Roy: You ready? It's OK to say you're scared.
Laurel: OK. I'm scared. Is what we're doing crazy?
Roy: I've learned it's better to ask that question when I'm not wearing a mask.
Roy: Us? What, are you and Laurel a team now?
Felicity: I was wrong when I said Oliver's mission was over because it's not just Oliver's mission anymore. It's ours. It's our home that is under attack.
Laurel: For all we know, Oliver could be dead and Sara certainly is, but there are people that are still alive. People who need us.
Laurel: So you don't have to worry. I'm not going to be putting on that mask again. I'm not strong enough to fight for Sara.
Felicity: Maybe you're not supposed to. Maybe it's not about Sara, or Oliver or anyone else that we care about who we lost. Maybe what we're doing, we've been doing because there are people that we care about that are still alive. Maybe we're doing it for them.
Laurel: I thought you quit.

Roy: What the hell do you think you're doing out there?

Diggle: He's not coming back, Oliver. I know you don't want to believe it, Laurel, God knows I don't but, he's not coming back.
Laurel: Are you? Are you coming back?
Diggle: I don't know. For the first time since I met Oliver Queen I don't know what happens next. I know it's silly, but I still like to think of myself as Oliver's bodyguard. I just couldn't protect him. It's funny. He was worried something would happen to me.
This isn't the first time I've heard that Oliver is dead. He's been back before. He'll be back again.
You know Oliver, somebody once told me that secrets have weight. The more you keep, the harder it is to keep moving.Diggle
There are people in this world who deal only in extremes. It's naive to think that anything less than extreme measures will stop them.Amanda
