Episode Quotes
Board Member #2: All those in favour of making a change...
Oliver: Aye. That is I agree it's time for a change but not quite how you mean it.
Board Member #2: Oliver Queen, what are you doing in enemy camp?
Oliver: I'm actually the one who called this meeting. Tess sends her regrets but she's on her way to Dubai overseeing some of our international interests.
Board Member #2: What do you mean "our"?
Oliver: With Tess' cooperation, I've purchased controlling interest in LuthorCorp.
Board Member #2: That barracuda went behind our backs and helped you with a hostile takeover...
Oliver: You know, I-I really don't think that the LuthorCorp board should be lecturing me on ethics, ma'am. After all, you've been using the world as your own personal playground for way too long.
Board Member #2: The world is much better off because of the Luthors and no pampered playboy is going to destroy their legacy!

Clark: Lana, even with your strength and speed, it's still dangerous out there.
Lana: You've protected me for years but this is who I am now. It's the life I want. And, I want to share it with you.
Clark: All I've ever wanted was someone to share my life with. To work with me, side by side, just like my mom and dad did.

Oliver: (to Clark and Lana) Well, if it isn't Metropolis' newest power couple.
Lana: How you doing, Oliver?
Oliver: I'm alright. Nothing a dry martini can't cure.

Chloe: No, I can't lie to Clark.
Oliver: You wanna tell him the truth or you wanna protect him? Lex tried to kill me. You know he's coming after Clark next. Chloe, he knows his secret. Can you honestly live with yourself if you let something happen to Clark?

Chloe: Lex knows that the meteor rocks are poisonous to Kryptonians! He knows your weakness, he could kill you!
Clark: That doesn't mean I'm supposed to kill him first, Chloe. No matter what Oliver said to you, Lex and I are not in a battle to the death!
Chloe: Open your eyes, Clark! Lex declared war on you years ago! He's known your secret for months, why have you not done anything yet?!
Clark: I'm focused on the future. On using my abilities to help people. I don't wanna live in the past.
Chloe: But, that's exactly what you're doing. You think that Lex is still that same man you saved on the bridge eight years ago. You're not recognising the monster he's become.
Clark: So, because I'm not gonna kill someone, I'm in denial? When you were taken over by Brainiac, you could've destroyed the world, Chloe. But, I refused to kill you.

Lex: Clark Kent and Lana Lang, welcome to your destiny. You've destroyed me in every way so now, I'm going to take away what matters most to you.
Lana: Lex?
Lex: Do you know what people remember about the greatest star-crossed romances? Not how the lovers met but the way the relationship tragically ended. The skin Lana's wearing was designed to absorb enough meteor rock that you'll never be able to go near her again.
Clark: You're a coward, Lex. Come out here. Face us!
Lex: No, Clark. It's time for you to face your defining moment. You can walk away, sacrificing innocent lives to stay together or defuse the bomb and sacrifice your love forever.

Clark: (as he faces Lex's truck) You'll never hurt anyone else again.
Lana: I know how much it hurts right now, Clark, but if you go after Lex like this, you will kill him.
Clark: After what he's done to us, Lana, he needs to be stopped.
Lana: I promise you... I will help you to punish Lex. But, if you kill him, you will lose so much more than just us being together. Clark... you'll lose yourself.

Chloe: Are you seriously gonna let another man take the blame for something you did?
Oliver: Chloe, Winslow's already a killer. He blew up all those people at LuthorCorp, he was about ready to take down the entire Daily Planet. One more death's not gonna make a difference.
Chloe: Are you listening to yourself? Oliver, you've really crossed a line here.
Oliver: Lex is dead. The world is safer because of it. Clark is safe again.
Chloe: This is murder.
Oliver: This is justice. Although Clark may not be able to accept that, you know what I did was right. Please don't stand there and look so innocent. You know, I did a little video viewing of my own. Seems a certain meteor freak named Sebastian Kane died at the hospital right after he was visited by somebody who looked an awful lot like you.
Chloe: That was Brainiac... not me.
Oliver: Was it? Because it seemed like a pretty natural instinct to protect Clark. Now that Lex is gone... you can't tell me you're not relieved.
Chloe: Every fibre of my conscience wants to say that's not true. But...
Oliver: Then, you can't tell Clark what I did. Lex just ripped the man's heart out, Chloe. He's gonna need his friends around him right now more than ever.

Lana: I love you. I always will. I know what I need to do with my life now. Life is... so precious... so beautiful. And, to be able to protect that, that's an amazing gift. I know you feel the same way.
Clark: What we have is beautiful.
Lana: Clark, we made our choice on that roof. And, I know we would do it again. Because both of us are driven to do this, even if we can't do it together.
Clark: Don't leave. Don't leave again, Lana. Even if we can't be together, I want you in my life.
Lana: That's where you're stronger than me.

Lana: That night at the cemetery, when I introduced you to my mom and dad, you told me that I would never be alone... that my mom would always be watching over me. If we're in each other's hearts, Clark, I will always be with you. No matter what. I love you.
