Quote1 My brother needed me. The Green one. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Oliver, for six years, I have followed the chain of command without question, even when my heart told me there was a better way. I trusted it. I trusted you. But the inescapable truth is that people have lost faith in your leadership. Truth is, Oliver, you have become a better man. But with your focus split... a worse leader. The Green Arrow allows you to become the best version of yourself, and I respect that. I respect you. But if I'm gonna be the best version of myself... Oliver, it can't be with you. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 What I know, Oliver, is that you started something, something strong enough to live on past you. Question is, can you live with what it's become? Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 The Oliver that I met eight years ago is not the one that we say goodbye to today. Oliver always told me that in order to save his city, he had to become someone else, he had to become something else. I always thought that meant becoming the Green Arrow, but...today, I realized that meant becoming a better man, the best man he knew how to be, and he took all of us with him on that journey. He changed everything. Oliver brought heroes into the world, he inspired heroes, he inspired all of us here. I was his brother, and Oliver Queen was mine. Of course, life will go on. It always does. But how? What twists and turns it will take, I can't say. I don't know what the future holds...except to say expect the unexpected. Oliver may be gone, but his mission endures. That mission lives on, Oliver lives on, in the people he inspired. Some will take that mission to the rest of the world...maybe even beyond that. Because if the past eight years has shown us anything...it's that this universe is far bigger than any of us could have dared imagine. Even if it is a little less bright, without him in it. Quote2

Quote1 Oliver, after everything we've been through, man, I couldn't fathom why you didn't trust me. Then I realized you couldn't. It's not who you are. You don't trust. You don't love. You were able to fool Ra's and join the League because inside you are every bit as dark as they are. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 I don't know. For the first time since I met Oliver Queen I don't know what happens next. I know it's silly, but I still like to think of myself as Oliver's bodyguard. I just couldn't protect him. It's funny. He was worried something would happen to me. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Felicity Smoak is one of the smartest, most badass women on the planet. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Somewhere where I'm going to try to trust you again. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 You've been in denial, Oliver. Holding onto hope with both hands that you don't have to give into that hate, use that hate, to do what needs to be done. But Oliver, this needs to be done. You have to kill Malcolm Merlyn. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Thea is dead. And yes, Tommy's alive. But, he's trying another undertaking with Rene and Dinah helping, who, if you haven't noticed, are very bad people here. Oliver, this world isn't better. It's much, much worse. You know why? Because you weren't in it. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 So this is your unit, huh, Waller? What, OJ and Charles Manson weren't available? Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Then you have to find a way to make it work. Comprise, do whatever you have to do because if you want a new future for this baby of yours it won't come by doing the same thing we used to do. We have to... we have to be something else. Something better. Quote2

--John Diggle (Arrowverse)

Quote1 Life is a marathon, not a sprint Barry. Slow down and enjoy it. Quote2
