I will work with you to stop Ra's because that's what my brother says we need to do. So I will be your student. I'll be your partner, even I have to, I will be your soldier. But never again will I be your daughter.


Thea: How could you make me kill a friend?
Malcolm: He should not have told you that.
Thea: I trusted you. I let you into my life. How could you have done this to me?
Malcolm: Because you are my daughter, Thea, and I care about you.

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.

Thea: What the hell was that?
Oliver: That was a booby trap.
Thea: What kind of psycho would put that thing there?
Oliver: Me.

Maseo: What were you thinking? Anyone at that party could have seen you.
Oliver: Yeah, I pulled the hoodie down over my face.
Maseo: That disguise wouldn't work even if you smeared greasepaint over your face.

Welcome home Kid.


Well of course he didn't tell you. Your brother likes his secrets.


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.

Diggle: No, you weren't gone. You were dead and all of us, including me; we were ready to hang it up.
Oliver: Why didn't you?
Diggle: Because we realized we weren't just fighting for you, we were fighting for ourselves. That includes Roy and, yes, that includes Laurel.
Oliver: She's not a soldier.
Diggle: Neither were you.
Oliver: It's not the same thing and you know that.
Diggle: What I know, Oliver, is that you started something, something strong enough to live on past you. Question is, can you live with what it's become?

Roy: You think you're the only person who can stand up for Thea?
Oliver: I'm trying to figure out why you're standing up to me!
Diggle: Alright. Maybe we just need to throttle back.
Felicity: No! We need this. Oliver, you were gone, dead, at least we thought you were, and we had to go on with our lives and doing that meant not doing things your way.
Oliver: Fine. I'm back now!
Felicity: That doesn't mean we can go back! And you do not have the right to come back here and question everyone's choices.

Roy: You tagged Laurel with a tracer?
Oliver: If she's gonna be reckless, I need to know what she's doing.
Felicity: Well she's definitely doing something. I'm just not exactly sure how reckless it is.

Thea: You know, I've been wondering. How do you decide between the red hoodie and the one with the mask?
Roy: [chuckles] I'm glad you know.
Thea: I felt pretty lame not recognizing my own brother just because he's wearing a hood.

Arrow Quotes

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


You know Oliver, somebody once told me that secrets have weight. The more you keep, the harder it is to keep moving.
