- Oliver Queen: I wanted to give Martin Sommers the chance to confess in face of court's justice. But he chose to go after someone I care about instead. He's still going to face justice. It'll just be a different kind.
- Oliver Queen: All that time plotting my return at the island, I didn't realize how hard it would be to reconnect with Mom, Thea... Laurel... and I didn't... I didn't know how painful it would be to keep my secret. You asked me to save the city. To right your wrongs. I will. I swear. But to do that, I can't be the Oliver that everyone wants me to be, which means sometimes, to honor your wishes... I need to dishonor your memory. I'm sorry...
- Oliver Queen: I got lucky.
- John Diggle: I'm not the man you wanna take for a fool, Mister Queen. You understand me?
- Oliver Queen: Yes.
- John Diggle: I think I'm just beginning to understand what kind of man you are.
- Oliver Queen: Shouldn't take you very long. I'm shallow.
- Moira Queen: I hired you to protect my son. Now, I'm not a professional bodyguard, but it seems to me that the first requirement of the job is staying close to the person you're protecting.
- John Diggle: I've never had a client who didn't want my protection before, ma'am.
- Moira Queen: You know five years ago irresponsibility was somewhat charming. It is a lot less so now.
- Oliver Queen: Before the island I was a jerk, but now I'm a damaged jerk.
