Kind of makes me a cyber-terrorist, which is bad because I really don't see myself fitting in well at Guantanamo Bay. About my mother, and about her involvement in the Undertaking. She's working with Malcolm Merlyn, and they're planning something, something... Do you really think that I could go on living knowing that you sacrificed thousands more in my name? I'm going to tear everything he cares about away from him. At the beginning I was going to do all of this by myself, and now with you and Diggle... Love's the most powerful emotion, and that makes it the most dangerous. [punches and breaks the pole] All I'm learning is new ways to get pissed off, and in case you haven't noticed, I'm already pretty good at that. Oliver: My Mom and my best friend's Dad are involved in a conspiracy that may have dire consequences for the city. I'm not planning on using the word "okay" again any time soon. After the "Gambit" went down, Dad and I both made it to the life raft. In the end, there wasn't enough food and water for both of us. Oliver : He sacrificed himself so that I could live. When I ask you not to confront the vigilante, you will listen. Slade: Death would be a release from this life, and his sentence has yet to be carried out. Once he has lost everyone and everything he values, I will drive an arrow through his eye. When you are there, it just makes me realize how much I need you here. And even if it was, nothing good comes from telling Slade that you think you're responsible for the death of the women he loved. When are you gonna run out of ways to make me looks STUPID?!?
William Tockman: The strongest of all warriors are these two - time and patience.
And now, all the people left that I care about, we're all in his crosshairs.
Five years ago, I could have cured Slade, and that would have prevented all of this.
It takes fortitude to stand still, just as it is a sign of weakness or cowardliness to move when you should have NOT.
Tolstoy knew that patience was the epitome of strength.
If I had accepted my life, I would be a cocktail waitress in Vegas like my mother, and I never would have gone to college, and I never would have moved a thousand miles away to work at Queen Consolidated, and I never would have believed some crazy guy in a hood when he told me I could be more than just some IT girl.
