Roy: What's the worst that could happen if I just told her the truth?

Felicity: Do you remember where you put your business suit? Or do you keep it in a cool glass case, too?
Peter: And what gives any of us the right to decide one's life is more valuable than another?

Moira: I've told you that these lies were to keep our family safe; to keep us all together, but that was the biggest lie of all. And I told it to you, to Thea, to myself. Because I was too weak to face any kind of truth.
Oliver: What's happening now isn't your fault.
Moira: From the moment your children are born, you worry what the world might do to them. But you never stop to think what you might do to them. that we could be our own worst enemy.

Slade: Not enough.
Slade: Don't worry. I am not here to harm you.
Laurel: Go to hell!
Slade: All in good time, I'm sure.
Moira: Still angry that Dorothy dropped a house on her sister?
