There is a prophecy. The man who doesn't perish at the blade of Ra'a al Ghul will become Ra's al Ghul. Ra's al Ghul doesn't offer, he orders. Oliver! Don't delude yourself into thinking you have a choice.Malcolm
If I can't just be me, and being the Arrow isn't enough, then maybe I should be Ra's al Ghul.Oliver
Oliver: He said I can do more as the new Ra's than I could ever do as Oliver Queen or the Arrow. That I would have unlimited resources. That I could make a difference, not just a dent.
Diggle: You aren't really considering this, just because Capt. Lance is angry and Felicity is momentarily unavailable?
I know a couple of fences from my less socially responsible days.Roy
My whole career, my whole life, even when I knew nothing, I at least knew right from wrong and I knew vigilantism was wrong. And the day that we take law into our own hands is the day that we become outlaws and that idea, that idea was precious to me. Almost as precious as my own daughters. I threw that all away the day I threw in with you. You know why? Cause I trusted you. But I see the man under the hood now, and he lies and he keeps secrets, all so he doesn't have to carry around the weight of his decisions. And I'm done with him.Capt. Lance
Arrow: You still need training.
Black Canary: When are you going to stop telling me that?
Arrow: When you don't need training.
Ra's al Ghul: You survived my sword. Your resurrection wasn't a gift from these waters, rather by force of your own will. What better heir to immortality than someone who has already claimed victory?
Oliver: I didn't defy death just to become an instrument of it.
Merlyn loves Thea. He would never just serve her up.Oliver
Ra's al Ghul: You tasted death and you wanted more, but the truth is everyone and everything must come to an end. Even for one such as me.
Oliver: Kill me, but spare John Diggle's life. Let him go. I will beg for it.
Ra's al Ghul: You have shown tremendous strength, fortitude, power. No, Mr. Queen. I don't want to kill you. I want you to take my place. I want you to become the next Ra's al Ghul.
Diggle: So, pretending for a moment that we aren't two dead men chained to the floor, how do you feel about being my best man?
Oliver: I feel pretty good about it.
Ray: You know what, sometimes I forget that we work together. When I'm with you, it's just you. I don't think about work or the mission or...[Felicity kisses him]
Felicity: I'm sorry.
Ray: I'm not. [more kissing]
Listen, I know what you're doin' and I know why you're doin' it, but you can't save Thea's soul at the thought of your own.Diggle
