Episode Quotes
(to Roy)
Quentin: Thanks. It's been a while since I arrested you. I'd forgotten how good it feels.

Slade: I will not be the reason something happens to you.
Shado: Then we're in agreement. Because I make my own choices.
Slade: You are a strong woman.
Shado: When I care about someone, there's nothing I won't do for them.
Slade: Another thing... we have in common.

Isabel Rochev: Underneath that swagger, I see you pretty clearly.
Oliver: Really? And what do you see?
Isabel Rochev: You're intelligent. Driven. And lonely.
Oliver: How do you see that?
Isabel Rochev: Because it's what I see when I look in the mirror.

Oliver: I... don't have a lot of time.
Isabel Rochev: I'll be quick.

Felicity: What were you thinking?
Oliver: What?
Felicity: Over 64 million women over the age of consent in Russia, and you sleep with her.
Oliver: So we're not doing the "what happens in Russia stays in Russia"?
Felicity: We're still in Russia.

Deadshot: If I say she's in there, what's keeping you from shooting me?
Diggle: Honor. You should try it sometime.
