Laurel Lance: You've been investigating this for two years and you haven't told anyone?
John Diggle: It's a family thing Laurel. I would think you. of all people, would understand keeping secrets when it comes to the death of a sibling.
Laurel Lance: I do. And because I do, I can tell you carrying a burden like that never ends in any way but bad.
United--that's what this city used to be. It's what it can be, it's what it must be, again. Now I know that I'm not the obvious choice for mayor, I'm not a politician. I signed away my family's company. I didn't even graduate from college, although in my defense, I did go to four of them. I certainly don't have a traditional background for leadership, but I can tell you this: After five years in hell, I returned home with only one goal--I wanted to save my city, and with your help, I can. With your help, we will restore our home to the shining beacon we know it can be. Now how we're gonna get there isn't a mystery. We will overcome our challenges with help from our friends, our family, our loved ones... Those we trust, and those we will need to trust again in order to prevail, because the only way that we are gonna return our home to greatness is to do so together... United.
