Quote1.png The men and women I've targeted are dangerous, corrupt, a virulent cancer. Cancers like James Holder, whose corporation put defective smoke detectors in low-income housing in The Glades. There have been many fires and too many funerals. But cancers can be fought and conquered. All it takes is a surgeon and the right instrument. Quote2.png

Quote1.png No, John, you didn't tell me because you knew I'd never let you go out there compromised and that I'd certainly never let you compromise the team. I have been mad at you before, John, this...is the first time I have ever been disappointed. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png My name is Oliver Queen. After five years in hell, I returned home with only one goal—to save my city. For eight years, I've fought alongside brave men and women striving for justice. But then, a Crisis came. And I had to become someone else. I had to become something else. I made the ultimate sacrifice, which helped birth an entirely new universe. Now my friends and family will have to go on without me. And although I have become a Spectre, there is a part of me that will always be the Green Arrow. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I think I have been so obsessed with proving to people that I am not like my father that I didn't stop and look at all the ways that I am exactly like him. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I don't believe you. Because you're a liar. You're lying to me, to manipulate me into doing what you want. Adrian, here's the thing. If you are telling the truth... If you killed my son... I am never going to be the person you want me to be. Not ever. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I didn't make all those sacrifices for a reward, Thea. I did it because it was right, and seeing it proves how much more there is to be done, and I can't do it without you. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I'm sorry that it worked out that way, and both of you can decide on your own how much you want to hate me and how much blame you want to assign. But, I made a promise to your mother to keep you safe and there is no world, there is no universe, there is no past, present, or future where I break it. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png If I abandon her now, I'm no better than my father. If I can help redeem her, selfishly I feel like I will redeem my family just a little. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I got arrested in front of my son. Dragged away in handcuffs because of something that Rene did. I don't know how to forgive him. I tried. John, more important, what's Cayden James up to? We don't know. He has known our identities for months. He hasn't outed us. Why? This started with you, with me, and with Felicity. Whatever comes our way, we can handle it. I believe that. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png People still need saving. They still need hope. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png My name is Oliver Queen. After five years in hell, I returned home with only one goal: to save my city. And I did. I became a hero who helped people. But now it's time for me to be someone else. It's time for me to be something else. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png My name is Oliver Queen. After five years of hell, I returned home with only one goal: to save my city. But I couldn't honor that commitment and honor the promise I made to the mother of my son. So I asked the best man that I know to help. His name is John Diggle and he is the Green Arrow! Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png The name of the island they found me on is Lian Yu. It's Mandarin for purgatory. Now I understand why. The memories, the pain, I've never escaped them. They're always with me, a reminder of what I had to endure. With only one thought, one goal -- survive. To save the multiverse, I must become something else. To do that, I have to return to where my journey began. Purgatory. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png Because if I'm wrong, if I'm wrong then all of this is for nothing. Do you understand Tatsu? I left Felicity, I left my children. So if, if The Monitor can't fix this and if he is not here to help then all of these things that I have sacrificed and all of the things that so many other people have already sacrificed will have been for nothing! I need my family to live. Which means that I need this to work. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I have failed this city. Yao Fei. Shado. Tommy. My father, my mother. All that I have ever wanted to do is honor those people. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I told you that I couldn't be with you and save the city. Neither can Ray. He's just too new at this to know that Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png This is not about strength. This is about heart. Ray, when the mayor was killed, you put yourself in harm's way to save Felicity. Normal people, they don't do that. Heroes do that. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png After you got shot, I realized you needed some extra protection out in the field, asked Lodai to work something up... Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png Just because I don't carry a gun, don't think for a second I don't know how to use one. Quote2.png

--Oliver Queen (Arrowverse)

Quote1.png I spent my first year back from the island atoning for my father's sins. Looks like I've got one more left. Quote2.png
