Oliver Queen: I don't have time for a lecture, John.
John Diggle: There's no lecture here, Oliver, but you should know that Andy gave me a lead on Darhk and I've been working on it.
Oliver Queen: Good. What have you found?
John Diggle: Unfortunately, it was a dead end, but you should know...
John Diggle: But nothing. But nothing.
John Diggle: Oliver, I know you're hurting, man, but you should know that whatever your play is... I got you back.
Oliver Queen: But?
John Diggle: But you've come so far, Oliver. You've recovered a humanity that you lost when I first met you. I know you want payback for what Darhk did to Felicity, and you should. But don't lose what made her fall in love with you in the first place.
John Diggle: What is it, Oliver?
Oliver Queen: I'd like you to do something for me.
John Diggle: If it's suit up as Green Arrow, Felicity and I already talked about it, and we don't think it's enough to take the heat off of you.
Oliver Queen: That's not why I'm asking.
John Diggle: You're serious.
Oliver Queen: Every time that I'm out there as the Green Arrow, I'm a target of the FBI, of the Bratva, of the threats that are out there, and the threats that are undoubtedly coming. And on my own, I can take it. I'm not on my own anymore. I cannot be responsible for my son losing the only parent that he has left.
John Diggle: Oliver...
Oliver Queen: Star City needs the Green Arrow. It just can't be me anymore, so I'd like it to be you.
