--Roy Harper (New Earth)

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 I'm sharing a very small piece of the pain I've just gone through these past few days. The kind of pain thousands of kids are going through every day because an uncaring and unthinking society turns its back on them. Drugs are a symptom... and you... like the rest of society... attack the symptom... not the disease! But this symptom is worse than most -- it maims... it pains... it dims you. It drives you to the edge of insanity and over... and one day ends your trip on a slab in the morgue... with a tag around your toe. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 They know what happens if Amazo shrinks like the Atom and comes at their foreheads with the speed of Wally and the strength of Clark. These past Leaguers...they've run this scenario before...wargamed it out. This isn't a street fight...it's a military assault. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 From the speed in Hal's voice, I can can tell he's proud. But this isn't Hal's victory. Or Ollie's. All those years ago, they're the ones who ran off. Who threw me out. No. This victory belongs to the person who took me in. The person who, at my lowest point...saved my life. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 All I know is, whenever scary superteams show up from the future, there's always an initial fistfight, followed by the obvious misunderstanding. In this case, we all started shaking hands with everyone as friends. That just means there's only one thing for us to do later. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Defending is one thing — annihilating an entire race is another. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 We went into this trying to become something different. Not another group of reactive vigilantes who chase the bad guys. We were going to cut them off at the knees -- find them before they hatched their schemes. But we've become just another collective of costumed thrill-seekers cleaning up messes afterwards. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 You don't want to lead a family. Fine, screw it -- this is work. No one says you have to be emotionally connected. Hell, you think the JLA has sunday potluck dinner? Maybe that's always been our greatest fault. We never built a team, Dick. We created a family. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 I'm scared. For the first time in a very long time... I'm scared. I hear gunshots in my sleep. I can't... I can't be thinking about... the risks. I can't be thinking about leaving Lian all alone. I can't be.... thinking about... dying. I don't think I should be out there in the field. I'm going to get someone hurt. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 I hope you don't think I'm going to pull my punches because you're a woman. I make different allowances for psychotic metahuman bald chicks. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 One of you is working against us. And no one is leaving until I find out who. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Stand down or I'm going to shoot you. This will fire a charge with a radioactive burst. Even the most impervious of you will feel it. And feel it bad. Except Starfire, who I'd have to shoot twice. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 They want to brainwash heroes? They want to assassinate and manipulate me and my friends? The Society comes here, they'll fine a note... a note that says don't screw with the Outsiders. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 And as for you -- you take another step towards me and your hooded friend gets seriously shafted. Get it? Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 If we only knew what, Mal? That were going to break up eventually? We probably did-- But none of us would admit it! But that doesn't mean the years we've spent together were wasted! We grew up together--helped each other over the rough spots-- But now it's time to fly solo... So each of us can continue growing! Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 It's like a Teen Titans reunion! Who brought the chips, dip and spiked punch? Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 I'm a pro at waking up in weird places, but this? Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Aren't you sick of being second-string? Titans began because we were all sidekicks. Just us kids trying to make a difference in our own right. We're not kids anymore. And the J.S.A. and the Justice League can't handle everything. With this, we can pull our weight. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Oh, well... We all just sort of shot out a name. Dick picked Starfire, Donna nominated that Argent girl, Wally wanted Jesse Quick in, I had some stuff to make up to Damage. And Garth picked Vic, here. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Donna, I've gotta. She's the mother of my child.. You had a son. I'd've thought you'd understand this. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 Stuff it, Grayson ! I don't want friends who cuddle me all the time and tell me I'm effin' perfect! Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 I don't know how I feel about all this, so what do you expect me to say to Donna? I know Chesh has to pay for what she did. But then I look at our daughter and the thought of Chesh spending the rest of her life in prison or worse...Makes me sick. Quote2

--Roy Harper (New Earth)

Quote1 And as for you -- you take another step towards me and your hooded friend gets seriously shafted. Get it? Quote2

Quote1 Oh, sweet Jesus. That's why I couldn't get a handle on this. Deathstroke's got me hooked on something even worse than heroin. Stupid junkie...You knew something was different this time, didn't you, Roy? But you ignored it, because it felt so damn good. Quote2
