Episode Quotes
Diggle: With all the guys working up top, you might want to think about a side entrance for your, uh... arrowcave.
Oliver: Just put one in. South alleyway. Something I want to show you.
Diggle: You're finally getting into online dating and you need help with your profile.
Oliver: Not exactly, but there is somebody I'd like you to meet.

Tommy: Apparently he wants to mend some fences, but thanks to him I can't afford a fence so I can only assume he's got some other agenda.

Malcolm Merlyn: At Christmas one year, Tommy wanted a puppy. He wanted to name it Arthur, as in King Arthur, because he's Merlyn.
Laurel: Well, you used to be so incredibly adorable.
Tommy: I still am.

Felicity Smoak: And here I was beginning to think my days of being Oliver Queen's personal computer geek were coming to an end.
Oliver: Is that your way of saying you miss me?
Felicity Smoak: No. But if it works for you, go with it.
