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.
Thea Queen: You smell like smoke. Korean barbecue?
Oliver Queen: C4. Yeah.
Thea Queen: It's nice that we can tell each other this stuff now.
Oliver Queen: It is, actually.
Thea Queen: You always had the lamest excuses.
Oliver Queen: Lame excuses are sort of an occupational hazard.
Thea Queen: What was tonight's hazard?
Oliver Queen: Roy and I were looking for the man that escaped from the courthouse earlier today. Found a bomb instead.
Thea Queen: Yeah, I don't know how you do it. Just risk your life out there for people every night.
Oliver Queen: It's my job. It is my job to keep the people of this city safe. And that includes you, too, Speedy. Listen to me. I'm always going to hate Malcolm Merlyn. But right now he's a necessary evil.
Thea Queen: But we can take care of ourselves.
Oliver Queen: Not against Ra's al Ghul. You have to trust me on this.
Thea Queen: I do. But I don't trust him. I can't. And I won't.
