Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • At the beginning when Diggle and Felicity step out of the airplane before they jump, Felicity's hair is whipped toward the front of the plane. The headwind should blow it toward the back.

    • During the last flashback, Oliver stands up and his face is covered blood. The camera cuts to Slade, and when it returns to Oliver the blood is gone.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Diggle: Felicity, if you're so scared, why did you insist on sitting up front?
      Felicity: It was the only seat with a seat belt.
      Diggle: Which will come in handy when we hit the water at 180 miles per hour.
      Felicity: What?
      Diggle: Which will not happen.

    • Shado: You've come very far in a few months. Don't beat yourself up.
      Oliver: Apparently that's his job.
      Slade: And I love my job.

    • Thea: Eavesdrop much?
      Roy: Ah, what I lack in height, I make up for in wicked good hearing.

    • Thea: Well, don't keep me in suspense, Harper. What's your take on the matter? Although keep in mind I do control your paycheck and your sex life.

    • Roy: You go see your mom yet?
      Thea: I thought about what you said.
      Roy: And?
      Thea: And... I'll go see her when you stop going out at night looking to clean up the streets.
      Roy: What does one thing have to do with the other?
      Thea: I guess they're both things that are never going to happen.

    • Felicity: You were right. Once I signed on, I stopped thinking about all the bodies you dropped. Because I knew that being the Hood meant occasionally being a killer. Maybe there's another way.
      Oliver: They have my sister. What other way is there?

    • Moira: (in prison) However long I am in this place, you have freed me.
      Thea: If I hug you, are they going to shoot us?
      Moira: I'm willing to risk it if you are.

    • Oliver: The city still needs saving. But not by the Hood. And not by some vigilante who's just crossing names off a list. It needs... something more.
      Diggle: It needs a hero, Oliver.
