I told you that I couldn't be with you and save the city. Neither can Ray. He's just too new at this to know that.

Laurel: Beautiful ceremony.
Oliver: Beautiful dress.
Laurel: Thank you.
Oliver: Did it come with the cast?
Laurel: I started fighting with a new trainer. She's enthusiastic.

Felicity: So that means a pass on becoming the most handsome demon's head ever?
Oliver: That means I'm not ready to give up on what I'm doing here.
Felicity: You know you're always saying how you're just wanting me to be happy? Well, the thing is, as you're in my life, I am. [Ray calls] I should probably take this.

Lance: What? Are you waiting around for a thank you?
Arrow: That's not why I do this.

If I can't just be me, and being the Arrow isn't enough, then maybe I should be Ra's al Ghul.

Oliver: He said I can do more as the new Ra's than I could ever do as Oliver Queen or the Arrow. That I would have unlimited resources. That I could make a difference, not just a dent.
Diggle: You aren't really considering this, just because Capt. Lance is angry and Felicity is momentarily unavailable?

Arrow: You still need training.
Black Canary: When are you going to stop telling me that?
Arrow: When you don't need training.

Ra's al Ghul: You survived my sword. Your resurrection wasn't a gift from these waters, rather by force of your own will. What better heir to immortality than someone who has already claimed victory?
Oliver: I didn't defy death just to become an instrument of it.

Merlyn loves Thea. He would never just serve her up.

Ra's al Ghul: You tasted death and you wanted more, but the truth is everyone and everything must come to an end. Even for one such as me.
Oliver: Kill me, but spare John Diggle's life. Let him go. I will beg for it.
Ra's al Ghul: You have shown tremendous strength, fortitude, power. No, Mr. Queen. I don't want to kill you. I want you to take my place. I want you to become the next Ra's al Ghul.

Diggle: So, pretending for a moment that we aren't two dead men chained to the floor, how do you feel about being my best man?
Oliver: I feel pretty good about it.

Oliver: You're not a killer!
Thea: Tell that to Sara.
Oliver: What happened to Sara is not on you! What happens to him, is. All this is what Malcom wanted. He freed Slade to prove that we're killers because he wants you to be just like him. You've got to prove to him that you're not.

Arrow Quotes

Diggle: I see you brought your plus one.
Ray: Nice to meet you. Ray Palmer.
Diggle: John Diggle. [whispering into Ray's ear] You hurt her, they'll never find your body. [louder] Nice to meet you!

There is a prophecy. The man who doesn't perish at the blade of Ra'a al Ghul will become Ra's al Ghul. Ra's al Ghul doesn't offer, he orders. Oliver! Don't delude yourself into thinking you have a choice.

Malcolm
