Ra's al Ghul: You survived my sword. Your resurrection wasn't a gift from these waters, rather by force of your own will. What better heir to immortality than someone who has already claimed victory?
Oliver: I didn't defy death just to become an instrument of it.
Merlyn loves Thea. He would never just serve her up.Oliver
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.
Diggle: So, pretending for a moment that we aren't two dead men chained to the floor, how do you feel about being my best man?
Oliver: I feel pretty good about it.
Ray: You know what, sometimes I forget that we work together. When I'm with you, it's just you. I don't think about work or the mission or...[Felicity kisses him]
Felicity: I'm sorry.
Ray: I'm not. [more kissing]
Listen, I know what you're doin' and I know why you're doin' it, but you can't save Thea's soul at the thought of your own.Diggle
Now you're just embarrassing yourself. Your sister's teacher was my teacher. Did you really think you could dispatch me with a stick?Malcolm
I'm not so consumed with vengeance that I blame Thea for Sara's death. I blame Malcolm Merlyn.Laurel
Diggle: My friends call me Dig. You? Shouldn't even talk to me.
The reason why I want to open up this bottle and crawl inside is because of what you did to us. I loved your sister. I love your mom. So much like each other, you know, these wild spirits. But, you and I, we had something more than that, because we were the ones that were alike. And we had a trust, and we had a bond, and you broke it. And, I don't know how you could do that to us. But I'm gonna survive this. I mean, I got to. It's my baby girl. But what you've done, I don't know how I'm going to live through this.Capt. Lance
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
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.
