Episode Quotes
Oliver: I know exactly how this Brotherhood works, and right now, it works for me.

Shrapnel: "It is not only prisoners who grow course and hardened from corporal punishment, but those as well who perpetrate the act or who are present to witness it."
Bronze Tiger: Oh, please stop giving him books.

Diggle: So this is your unit, huh, Waller? What, OJ and Charles Manson weren't available?

Gholem Qadir: Mr. Diggle, who is this vision?
Lyla Michaels: His new bodyguard.
Gholem Qadir: Mmm. You will have to refer me to your security company.

Oliver: I'm not sure you're the best person to talk to about all this.
Laurel: And why is that? Is it because of the whole cheating, shipwreck, drowning, not drowning, he's back, she's back thing? Sorry, it's the brutal AA honesty talking.

Diggle: Last night, the man who killed my brother showed more character than the woman charged with protecting the world. Good and bad is not so clear to me. One thing I do know for sure, black and white... is that I can't ever lose you again.
Lyla Michaels: Finally. Something we agree on.

Oliver: Thank you. Helping me with Sara, I know that... can't be easy.
Laurel: Helping two people I care about? There's nothing easier.
