Oliver: He left behind evidence.
Diggle: Fingerprints.

Felicity Smoak. You have failed this omelette.


Cities are like puppies. You see them writhing in the street, you put them down, you don't let them suffer.

Oliver: I don't know what that means.
Diggle: Oliver, after everything we've been through, man, I couldn't fathom why you didn't trust me. Then I realized you couldn't. It's not who you are. You don't trust. You don't love. You were able to fool Ra's and join the League because inside you are every bit as dark as they are.

Lance: I'm not. Mass murder, killing innocents. I didn't sign up for this.
Damien: You signed up to do my will. I want to know everything about this Green Arrow. I want to know where he lives and who he loves, and I want him off the boards by the time my associates arrive.

Oliver: It was good. I'm getting used to running without someone chasing after me.

We trade Damien for the virus. That is remarkably ruthless and cold blooded. I approve.
