Laurel Lance: I got a look at the laptop before it got shot up, and there were blueprints on the screen.
Oliver Queen: So they are gonna take down another building. Felicity?
Felicity Smoak: I know. The first time we met, the first thing you asked me to do was pull data off a damaged laptop. It's kind of romantic.
Laurel Lance: You thought about telling me... the night of the undertaking.
Oliver Queen: I thought about telling you almost every night.
Laurel Lance: Why didn't you? Tommy knew. Didn't he? You were with him. You were with him at the end.
Oliver Queen: His last words were about you. He wanted to know if you were safe. Sorry I couldn't save him. And my mother. But I can save you. And Thea. I can save the city if this ends tonight.
Laurel Lance: No. No! You can't commit suicide, Ollie. You won't do that to me. Or to Sara, or to your friends. Or to Thea. Oliver... She just lost her mother. Losing you would destroy her.
Oliver Queen: But she'll be alive.
Laurel Lance: I don't know about hoods and masks or human weapons or any of this. But I know you. I know you like I know my own name. And I realize it may sound crazy in light of your secret, but I know who you are in your bones, Oliver. And that person - that person doesn't give up. That person, he always finds a way.
Oliver Queen: Not this time.
Laurel Lance: You're wrong. You want to protect the people who you love? Then the only way to do that is to stop Slade Wilson.
Oliver Queen: Laurel, I can't!
Laurel Lance: Yes, you can! By stopping Sebastian Blood, because Sebastian is working for Slade Wilson.
Laurel Lance: I have proof. Slade Wilson killed your mother so Sebastian could become mayor.
Oliver Queen: You were right about him. The man in the skull mask works for for Slade Wilson. And this entire time, it was Sebastian.
Laurel Lance: What's happening is bigger than you and Slade. The city needs the Arrow.
John Diggle: I don't know how you did it. You never hesitated to make the call. You were always sure.
Oliver Queen: I'm not. I was never sure, not one time. I'm very flattered that it... it looked that way on the outside, but on the inside it was... it was instinct. It was instinct, and it was fear.
John Diggle: Yeah, but you worked past it.
Oliver Queen: Well, you'll work past it, too. Now, I'm not gonna sit here and say that you won't make mistakes, that you won't lose people along the way. You know, most... most will be strangers, but some... well, some won't be. Because, John, you're one of the main reasons that the Green Arrow even exists.
John Diggle: What are you talking about?
Oliver Queen: The Restons.
John Diggle: The bank robbers?
Oliver Queen: The bank robbers, yeah. You were the first person who convinced me to look past just the names on my father's list. You helped me discover that the Hood - that persona - he wasn't a hero. You... you helped me find one. All of this - the Green Arrow, the idea of it - it exists because you had faith in me. Now you got to have the same kind of faith in yourself. Because if you do, you can be a better leader. You can be a better hero than I ever was.
