Main Characters in this Episode
Tommy Merlyn: You're not going to die down here.
Oliver Queen: Tommy, I'm sorry. I let you die.
Tommy Merlyn: You didn't let me die, Ollie. You fought to save me. Because that's what you do. What you have always done. You fight to survive. I know I called you a murderer, but you are not. You are a hero. You beat the island. You beat my father. So fight, Oliver. Get up and fight back.
Oliver Queen: You're dead.
Slade Wilson: You are not a hero. Or a friend. Or a brother. You are nothing. Do not turn your back on me, not again.
Oliver Queen: You're gone.
Slade Wilson: Wherever I am... it's time you joined me. They say a coward dies a thousands deaths. But even that wouldn't be enough for you.
Oliver Queen: I tried to save you! And her.
Slade Wilson: But you couldn't. Just like you couldn't save this city. The island didn't make you strong kid. It revealed you to be weak.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Human weapons?
Quentin Lance: Look, his name is Cyrus Gold. He's the one who broke into Queen Consolidated last week. He's the one who robbed the blood bank. And he killed all those people.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Wait, hold on a second. Where are you getting all this intel? Oh, man, what's the matter with you? Talking with the vigilante's what got you demoted in the first place.
Quentin Lance: Look, we take a small squad. McCarthy and Evans from SWAT, Jones. We can bring this guy down.
Detective Lucas Hilton: I promised Jeannie I'd take her Christmas shopping.
Quentin Lance: Lucas. Please.
Detective Lucas Hilton: Fine. But you get to call Jeannie and tell her I'm not taking her shopping.
