Episode Quotes
Oliver: The day I went missing... was the day I died. Five years in hell forged me into a weapon, which I use to honor a vow I made to my father, who sacrificed his life for mine.

Oliver: This guy gets more air-time than the Kardashians, right?
Thea: Five years on an island and you still know who they are.
Oliver: I've been catching up. It's nice to see how much our culture has improved while since I've been away.

Oliver: It's fine, Walter. I've been in a courtroom before.
Tommy: Four times, by my estimate. You know, there was the DUI, the assault on that paparazzi douche bag. Stealing that taxi which was just awesome, b the way. And who could forget peeing on the cop.
I wish everyone would.

Moira: I hired you to protect my son. Now, I'm not a professional bodyguard, but it seems to me that the first requirement would be managing to stay next to the man you're hired to protect.

Oliver: Sorry to give you so much grief.
Diggle: I served three tours in Afghanistan, Mr. Queen. You don't even come close to my definition of grief.

Laurel: I'm a lawyer. I live to argue.
Quentin: I'm your father. I live to keep you safe.

Oliver: I'm a jerk. Before the island I was a jerk. And now I'm just a... a damaged jerk.

Diggle: And I think I'm just beginning to understand the kind of man you are.
Oliver: Shouldn't take you very long. I'm shallow.

Oliver: I wanted to give Martin Somers a chance to confess and face a court's justice but he chose to go after someone I care about instead. He's still going to face justice. It'll just be a different kind.



Cultural References
Oliver: There's no place like home.

Dorothy says this famous line as she uses the ruby slippers to return to Kansas in The Wizard of Oz (1939).
