Arrow Season 8 Episode 7: "Purgatory" Quotes
The name of the island they found me on is Lian Yu. It's Mandarin for purgatory, now I understand why. The memories, the pain, I've never escaped them. They're always with me, a reminder of what I had to endure. With only one thought, one goal -- survive. To save the multiverse, I must become something else. To do that, I have to return to where my journey began. Purgatory.Oliver
Diggle: I'm gonna stick by your side, for as long as I can. But I know you have to do this alone.

Oliver: For a very long time, I have hated this place. I just think about all the people that it took from me. And it would just, it would just make me so angry.
Mia: But you're not now?
Oliver: Still a little bit angry. This island taught me to survive. It turned me into someone else, somebody better than the person I was before. So despite my feelings, there are no stories about the Green Arrow to tell if I don't make my way to Lian Yu. And I'm also not standing, in this moment, looking at my daughter.
Mia: Thank you for letting me a part of your story, even if it was only for a little while.
Oliver: Mia, something tells me you're going to create your own stories.
