  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Felicity: I'm guessing how and why are Oliver Queen's least favorite questions.
      Diggle: Yeah, well, there's also when and where he's not too fond of.

    • Diggle: Remember playing Operation when you were a kid?
      Felicity: Yeah. And it never made me want to throw up.

    • Slade: You have two choices--escape, or die. So choose.
      Oliver: Escape.
      Slade: Then let me show you how not to die.

    • Diggle: Thanks for your help. Kept your head on.
      Felicity: I always wondered how I'd react if I found my boss shot and bleeding in my car. Not that I helped because he's my boss. I'd help anyone who was shot and bleeding in my car.

    • Slade: Where are you going?
      Oliver: All my life, all that I've ever thought about is myself. I took my family for granted. I betrayed people that I loved. And I'm not going to be that person anymore.

    • Oliver: I guess I didn't die. Again. Cool.

  • Notes

    • Colin Donnell is credited but doesn't appear.

    • Injoke: Slade Wilson mentions his partner's name as Wintergreen, and says that he has a son, Joe. In the comics, Wilson's son is Joseph Wilson aka Jericho. Wintergreen is the name of Wilson's long-time butler and confidant.

    • Oliver: I'm on a deserted island and my only friend is named Wilson.
