Thea: Tell me. Why now?
Oliver: Because Ra's al Ghul is coming for us. All of us. And the only chance that we have to survive is to work together. To trust each other.
Malcolm: He's right.
Thea: No. No, no he's not. I turned my back on everyone I know, including my own brother because you told me there was no one else I could trust.
Malcolm: I was only trying to protect you.
Thea: By driving a wedge between me and Ollie? You manipulated me!

Thea: Do you know how many times I've wished that I could thank The Arrow for the things he has done for this city?
Oliver: Probably as many times as I've wished we could have this conversation.

All those times I got mad at you for being a flake, or telling me something I knew that had to be a lie, you were saving someone's life. Thank you.Thea

Before you left, the last thing you said to me was that you loved me. Now you're back and the first thing you tell me is that you're working with the man who turned your sister, a woman you're supposed to love, into a killer who killed a woman you used to love! I don't want to be a woman that you love.Felicity
Felicity: Merlyn is a monster. You're in this situation, Thea is in this situation because of him.
Oliver: Felicity, it's...
Felicity: No, just a few hours ago I stood right here and I swore that there was no way that you would ever agree to work with Malcolm Merlyn. Not ever! I guess I was wrong about everything. I need some air. I'm glad you're not dead.
Malcolm: Oliver, I know I wasn't there for Tommy, but I see Thea as my chance for redemption.
Oliver: You turned my sister into a killer and then you put her into the cross hairs of one of the most dangerous men on the planet.
Malcolm: And you won't believe me, but I did so with a heavy heart and expecting a different outcome.
Oliver: Ra's is going to come for me and he will learn the truth about Sara, eventually.
Malcolm: And then he will come for Thea. And me.
Oliver: That's why I have to kill him.
Malcolm: You couldn't before.
Oliver: This time I will have you to train me.
Malcolm: Only the student will have hope of defeating the master.

Sin: That woman running around in black leather tonight; that wasn't Sara.
Lance: Of course it was, who else would it be?
Sin: I don't know. That's why I'm talking to you.
Lance: What do you mean? I've spoken to her.
Sin: Well then you should know that wasn't your daughter.
- Permalink: Well then you should know that wasn't your daughter.
I've been gone and I'm sorry, sorry for what the city has had to endure in my absence. But you did endure it and the evidence of that struggle is lying at my feet. You did not fail this city and I promise I will not fail you by leaving it again.

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