I don't fight the street crime. That's a symptom of what's wrong with this city, I'm trying to cure the disease.

Oliver

The last time the vigilante paid your mom a visit you got shot and I got to play doctor with you. Oh - my brain thinks of the worst way to say things.

Felicity

Because of the life that I lead, I just think it’s better to not be with someone that I could really care about.

Oliver

Gimme a break. This ain't no task force. Let's call it like it is. Welcome to the suicide squad.

Deadshot

I'm thinking prison, Burning Man meets Shawshank Redemption. The invite says "come before Oliver Queen gets off."

Oliver

Oliver: Mom, I know a little something about sacrificing myself for the good of this city. It's what you need to do now.
Moira: I know.
Oliver Good.
Moira: Oliver. I know. I know. I've known since last year, I suppose. The night of the undertaking everything became so clear. It's pretty much the night I stopped sleeping.
Oliver: Before you say anything else...
Moira: There's nothing else to say. Nothing I need to say. Except I could not be more proud.

Well, I told a guy the truth and he got struck by lightening. To be fair, it probably won't happen again. Statistically.

Felicity

You know, I used to think the vigilante was a criminal, too. But, it seems to me he's willing to sacrifice an awful lot to help the people of city. That kind of makes him a hero, doesn't it?

Felicity

Maybe you should start acting like my mother so I don't have to act like yours.

Thea [to Moira]

Oliver: This guy gets more airtime on the Kardashians.
Thea: Five years on an island and you still know who they are.

Felicity: Guess what I majored in. Hint - not the secretarial arts!
Oliver: Felicity! If I'm going to be Oliver Queen, CEO, the I cannot very well travel down 18 floors every time you and I need to discuss how we spend out nights.
Felicity: And I love spending the night with you...three...two...one. I worked very hard to get where I am and it wasn't so I could fetch you coffee!
Diggle: Well, it could be worse. My secret identity is his black driver.

Oliver: John, I don't want to die down here.
Diggle: So don't, Oliver.

Arrow Quotes

Do you know why I always blame myself in situations like this? Because at least it's an answer. Sometimes we just need a reason when a situation is completely unreasonable.

Oliver

Every warrior must learn the simple truth -- that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional.

Malcolm
