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.
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.
