At the Starling City Museum, a security guard, Jerry stares at the Sherwood Ruby. His partner comes up and makes sure that he's okay, and Jerry says that Mrs. Hill wants them to move the gem to the vault because of the recent string of robberies. The two guards disable the security system and then Jerry knocks out his partner and takes the gem. The alarms go off and Jerry misdirects the security teams via the radio. He then meets with the man he's working for, Dodger, who is waiting in the shadows, and demands that the man take off the explosive collar he's wearing. Dodger does so and tasers Jerry unconscious...

Episode Quotes
Slade Wilson: You're not going to last an hour out there.
Oliver: Well, I guess you better hope I get back in 45 minutes, then.

Diggle: And what would you have done if you were wrong, and I decided to make a call to Detective Lance?
Oliver: I would have put an arrow in you.
Diggle: Ha! Really--really--you really would have done that, really?

Oliver: It's not how I typically get my information.
Felicity Smoak: How do you typically do it?
Oliver: I find the person. And then I put the fear of God into them until they talk. But we can try your way.

Quentin: You got something against banks?
Roy Harper: Well, it is hard to run with one under your arm.
Quentin: Well, maybe you'll learn a few new skills in prison.

Moira: If our plan works, I can't let it damn Walter to Hell.
Frank Chen: No. That's the fate that's in store for us, I'm afraid.

Felicity Smoak: Speaking which, have you given any thought to what might happen if this doesn't work and the Dodger absconds with your family jewels? (Oliver stares) I'm sorry, that came out very wrong.

Roy Harper: You know, you showed some real sack coming down here. The Glades in the middle of the night.
Thea: You must not know the value of a vintage purse.
