Mia: I've seen you before. An old Green Arrow documentary. You're...
Laurel: A friend of your parents. You're lucky we got here when we did.
Mia: Dinah sent you to watch my back.
Laurel: It's what Canaries do. Give this to Felicity. You look so much like her. And you may not be a Canary, but you still have a long way to go to prove that you're a hero. Take it from someone who knows how hard it can be. And don't screw it up.
It was like Charlie's Angels without all the feathers and casual sexism.Felicity
Felicity: I have something for you.
Laurel: It's Laurel's Black Canary costume.
Felicity: Yeah, I thought you could use it here, but you know, maybe Earth-2 needs a Black Canary. You are still planning on being good, right?
Laurel: I'm planning to try.
Laurel: I just hope one day I'm actually worthy of it.
Felicity: And now that Laurel Lance upstanding citizen is back, everything can go back to normal.
Laurel: Actually, it can't.
Felicity: Say what now?
Laurel: I am so tired of running. It's time for me to go home now.
Felicity: Home? As in Earth-2 home?
Laurel: Yeah, someone told me that if I wanted to be one of the good guys that I needed to right my wrongs, and the only way to do that is to go back to where it all started.
Felicity: To ladies taking down ladies.
Dinah: And to Laurel. Thank you for the assist and I am very, very sorry that I doubted you.
Laurel: That means a lot. I just wish we could have gotten Shadow Thief.
Dinah: We'll get her next time.
Laurel: So, does this mean you aren't going to arrest me?
Dinah: I don't see why I would. This new evidence proves you didn't kill Hernandez, and you went undercover to bring down Shadow Thief, so I am as surprised as anyone.
Laurel: You came back for me.
Dinah: We're only as strong as we are together, something I didn't realize till just now.
Sara: We are pretty badass together.
Felicity: Yeah, like birds of justice.
Sara: Something like that.
Laurel: Seriously? Felicity, don't you think you are just a little bit out of your element?
Felicity: That is correct. I know that. But so are you.
Laurel: Oh for the love of God. Would you give it up already? This is who I am. Do you not see that?
Felicity: Who I see is someone that I believe in and someone that I really care about.
Dinah: Felicity, what are you doing?
Felicity: Forget trying to live up to Laurel's legacy and forget who Detective Lance wanted you to be. What do you want?
Laurel: I want you to get out of my way.
Felicity: I guess if you're OK with that device killing people, you may as well start with me.
Dinah: Me, too.
Sara: And me.
Laurel: [Turns on Shadow Thief with her cry] I changed my mind. The deal's off.
Sara: So what? You think you deserve a medal for trying to be good for five seconds? Redemption isn't a destination, it's a journey. I wasted years running away from all of the bad things I had done because I didn't want to face the pain that I had caused because I didn't want to be that person. And then I realized the only way to stop being that person was to come home and own up to the things I had done. And yeah, it was painful. And it took a really long time, but it was the only way to become someone else, someone better than who I was.
Laurel: Well, that's great for you. But even if I wanted to change, it's a little too late because this is who I am.
Sara: I thought I might find you here.
Laurel: That's pretty brave of you sneaking up on me from behind.
Sara: If you wanted to kill people, you wouldn't have given that warning time before the bomb went off. I really miss him. It looks like you do, too.
Laurel: Is this you trying to convince me that I've changed? That I'm more like your laurel?
Sara: No. Nobody's as good as the original Laurel Lance. Not even me.
Dinah: Do you know why I started the Canaries? What it represents? This is more than just some rebellion group. It's a support system. This is a way for women to know that we always have each other's backs no matter what happens. Whenever we need it most, something that I failed to do for a friend once. But ever since what happened with her, I made a promise that I would never make that mistake again. That's why we wear these, to honor that promise and the bravery and the sacrifice shared with these amazing women who somehow -- no matter how many times they get knocked down -- they always find the strength to get back up and fight again. And that is exactly what the surviving Canaries are going to do together. But when the time is right.
Mia: It's too bad I'm not a Canary.
Dinah: I'm grateful for Oliver and for the whole team, but I don't think it matters with Laurel. I don't think she ever even wanted that kind of support.
Felicity: Or maybe she wanted it more than any of us and didn't realize it until it was gone.
Fake heat signatures? That is devious and impressive!Felicity
