Laurel Lance: She was my sister. I couldn't be angry because she was dead. I couldn't grieve because I was angry. That's what happens when your sister dies while screwing your boyfriend. We buried an empty coffin. because her body was at the bottom of the ocean where you left her. it should have been you.
Oliver Queen: I know it is too late to say this but I am sorry.
Laurel Lance: Yeah, I am sorry, too. I had hoped you would rot in hell a lot longer than five years.
Oliver Queen: John, you are the one who always tells me do not have a blind spot when it comes to your family.
John Diggle: And you're the one who told me to give Andy a second chance. You're the one who wanted to extract him from HIVE. You're the one who said he could come back from the darkness the same way you did.
Oliver Queen: But I didn't. I've tried. I've tried harder at this than I ever have at anything, but at the end of the day, I am who those 5 years turned me into, I'm what they turned me into.
John Diggle: So what, Oliver, just because Felicity left you, I'm supposed to believe that all men are incapable of redemption? Not all men are like you, Oliver. Some of us change, some of us grow, some of us evolve. You are stuck, man, stuck in your self-pity and your self-righteousness, and that is why Felicity left you. My brother is my business. You have no idea what he's been through, and you sure as hell had no right right to judge him.
