Kate Spencer: Look, on behalf on the entire D.A.'s office, I have to apologize. Adam Donner's employment here has been terminated. Obviously we had no idea what he was plotting.
Laurel Lance: I would hope not.
Kate Spencer: Unfortunately, Adam was not authorized to offer you your job back. I'm sorry. But nothing has changed.
Laurel Lance: Yes, it has.
Kate Spencer: Excuse me?
Laurel Lance: You are going to rehire me, Kate. Unless you feel like explaining to the press that your own assistant district attorney was the brilliant mastermind behind tonight's hostage crisis.
Kate Spencer: Welcome back. I have to say, I am impressed. I would have thought blackmail was a little dark for you.
Laurel Lance: Someone recently told me, once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.
Ra's al Ghul: Ra's is a title greater than one man. Wing Ta Leo Wo Chey.
Oliver Queen: Am I supposed to understand what that means?
Ra's al Ghul: No. It is from a dialect no longer spoken. Said to me by a man whose place I took. Contemplating the same offer. And what it means is, a tale to be told begins thus.
