Lana: Because this is what I wanna do.
Lex: I'm just trying to protect you.
Lana: What is it with people feeling like they have to protect me? Lex, I don't need to be watched over.
Lex: I didn't say you did. I want you to be safe.
Lana: Well, this isn't about what you want. This is about what I want.
Clark: You're looking awfully healthy.
Oliver Queen: It's called exercise, Clark. Something we mere mortals have to do from time to time.
Clark: According to the Daily Planet, the Green Arrow was shot last night.
Oliver Queen: If I was shot, don't you think I'd be laying in a hospital or a morgue? I'm not bulletproof like you are, Clark. Besides, you of all people should know better than to believe everything you read in the newspaper.
Clark: A witness saw you lying in a pool of blood.
Oliver Queen: Well, maybe it was someone else with a preference for green.
Oliver Queen: Apparently, you were too busy using your powers to bale hay than to realise that there's a crime wave in Metropolis. Let me ask you a question... are you ever gonna get off your ass and finally do something for a change?
Clark: I didn't come here to be insulted.
Oliver Queen: Well, you know what? There's the door, Clark, I don't remember you being invited.
Clark: Oliver, what's going on with you?
Oliver Queen: Clark, I don't need to take advice from someone whose only worry in life is to protect his own identity!
Clark: That's a lie, you know it.
Oliver Queen: Let me tell you something, when I'm out there, when I'm out on the streets, I'm protecting people! Alright? I got much bigger things to worry about like staying alive!
Clark: Lois, I went to talk to him at his apartment.
Lois: You didn't? What were you thinking?
Clark: I was looking out for you...
Lois: I have 20/20 vision, Smallville, I look out for myself.
Clark: Lois, I think you might want to keep your distance.
Lois: He has a substance abuse problem, not leprosy. And I am not going to abandon him when he needs me the most.
Clark: He's not himself right now and based on his behaviour, I don't think he's someone you wanna be around.
Lois: Well, you see that's the difference between you and me, Clark... I don't desert people when they need help.
Clark: Lois, don't worry. I promise I'll do everything I can to track him down.
Lois: Yeah, that'll be a big help. Look, I'll just call Chloe.
Lana: Do you ever wish that you could go back in time and... everything would be different?
Clark: All the time.
Lex: Drop it!
Green Arrow: You first.
Lex: What do you think is faster - an arrow or a bullet?
Green Arrow: There's only one way to find out.
Oliver Queen: Listen to me, you and I both know the world's a better place without Lex Luthor.
Clark: That's not for us to decide, Oliver.
Clark: Who am I dealing with, Jekyll or Hyde?
Oliver Queen: Just plain old Oliver today, Clark.
Clark: You haven't broken any glasses, that's a good sign.
Oliver Queen: This whole time I just wanted to be like Clark Kent, you know, I wanted to, uhh... I wanted to have the ability to bring justice to the world without having to worry about getting killed in the process. And then something occurred to me, I realised that, uhh... Clark Kent would never take another man's life. I came within an inch of doing just that. I'm not even in your league.
Clark: Oliver, you do a lot of good in this world. You don't need to be indestructible to be a hero.
Oliver Queen: Yeah, oh, you're right, you're right, yeah, umm... I should be thankful for who I am, right? And the abilities that I have, I know that.
Clark: Me, too.
Clark: I'm sure Lois is gonna want you there... trust me.
Oliver Queen: Whoa, trust you? What happened to all the lectures abouts guys with secret identities not being able to handle relationships?
Clark: The truth is you and I are different. And Lois isn't Lana. If you two are meant to be together then who am I to stand in the way?
Clark: I would just like to say that I'm most thankful for... my mom and dad... whose faith in me taught me to have faith in myself. Thank you.
