Arrow: Vendetta

Oliver takes Helena under his wing and trains her in how to be a vigilante that seeks justice rather than vengeance.

Episode Quotes
Helena Bertinelli: This is a waste of time.
Oliver: I'm trying to teach you something.
Helena Bertinelli: What, the least effective way to shoot people?
Oliver: No, control.

Felicity Smoak: How was your trip to Australia? I always wanted to go. Down under. It's just, I have this thing about kangaroos. More of a phobia. They wig me out. They look evil, and I'm sure their picture's up on like everything in that country.

Helena Bertinelli: So you two were together... and now you're dating his best friend.
Tommy: Yeah, we're just prime for a reality show, aren't we?

Diggle: Chili cheese fries with jalapenos. Hmm. That's a cry for help if I've ever seen one.

Oliver: Ahh... I don’t know what hurt worse, this or getting shot with a curare-laced bullet.
Diggle: Been there, done that. Definitely the bullet.

Oliver: It just so happens that I have a general manager position that is available. You're probably the guy for the job.
Tommy: Will I be getting dental? This smile wasn't cheap.
Oliver: I'll look into that.
Tommy: Thank you.

Episode Goofs
In the first shot of the car in the alleyway, there's no arrow in the hood. Which makes sense, since the Hood hasn't fired an arrow yet.

However, in the next shot just after the lookout says, "All clear," an arrow is visible in the hood.

Then a few seconds later, the Hood finally shoots an arrow into the car.
