Oliver Queen: For the past year, I have stood by your side... and I have fought, because I didn't to believe that you were this... monster. And I needed to believe that still had a mother.
Moira Queen: You do, Oliver. Oliver, I only lied about Thea to protect her from Malcolm.
Oliver Queen: No, you lied because that is what you do. And that is who you are, Mom. Lies. And now you have made a liar out of me. Because Thea can never find out about Merlyn. And she can never learn the truth about us. Which is that as of right now, we have no relationship. I will keep up appearance for Thea's sake. And publicly I will support your campaign. But privately... you and I are done.
John Diggle: Oliver? What is it, man?
John Diggle: Is it Susan?
Oliver Queen: Not yet, but it's just a matter of time... And I don't know what I can do to stop it.
John Diggle: Oliver, there are always options, and you're not alone.
Oliver Queen: You trunk that's the problem? You've done a wonderful job of convincing me that I"m changing for the better, with recruits and transparency, more optimism, more... More trust.
John Diggle: You think none of this would've happened if you hadn't trusted Chase, right?
Oliver Queen: Trusted anyone, because I can't see anything past me just breaking more targets.
John Diggle: Oliver...
John Diggle: We're not targets, man. We're your teammates... We're your strength.
Oliver Queen: You give me strength until Chase turns it into a weakness. Look what happened with Susan. I let myself get close to Susan, and in so doing, I gave Chase a way to get to me. That could happen with you, with... With Felicity. With my son. All of you make me vulnerable, John.
John Diggle: Maybe. Maybe we do, but caring about people, Oliver--that makes you human.
Oliver Queen: Being human is a luxury I might not get to have.
Oliver Queen: You okay?
John Diggle: Not really. I told Lyla the truth about Andy.
Oliver Queen: What'd she say?
John Diggle: She's a soldier... She understood, but I don't, and I don't think I ever will.
Oliver Queen: What are you gonna do?
John Diggle: I'm gonna take some time, away from this team, away from the city. Figure out where I went off track, figure out how to get back on.
Oliver Queen: John, I have never done this without you. You're the one who keeps me in line.
John Diggle: Oliver, I don't know if you've been watching lately, but it's been the other way around, man.
