Roulette, a professional con woman, doesn't think to remove the low-jack on Oliver's car after she stole it and cleaned out his bank account.
Roulette tosses Lois to the floor and it's clear she very gently lands. Despite that, the trained martial artist who took several punches from Roulette in the previous scene immediately falls unconscious.
Oliver's abductor picks the one night of the year when Lois would realize that Oliver was missing, despite it is later stated there was no intention to involve Lois. The abductor would either have known about the yearly meeting or could easily have found out.
Oliver: I guess I... I'd always figured it was easier for me to hurt the people I cared about than... stick around long enough knowing, eventually I'd end up disappointing them anyway.
Lois: About time you got home. Shelby's great and all, but the conversation... a little one-sided.
Clark: Shouldn't you be riding a mechanical bull somewhere? It is Friday night.
Clark: I hope I have enough detergent. How do you even have anything left to wear?
Lois: You know, most guys wouldn't complain if I suddenly found myself shirtless.
Lois: Are you like this at the movie theater, too, Clark? I mean, these concession runs are sweet, but you're up and down more often than the Cubs' batting lineup.
Lois: How does a guy with nine phone numbers not return a phone call?
Clark: Probably just celebrating with someone else.
Lois: Wow. Tall, dark, and single. Go figure.
Lois: Pants on, Birthday Boy. Party train's arrived.
Clark: Lois, I think people would prefer "knock" over "pants on."
Clark: Oliver was watching this on his laptop. It's a long story about Lois and laundry and lacy things.
Chloe: You were living like you had a death wish, Oliver. You had to face your demons if you were ever going to make it out alive. And I had to push you over the ledge in order to pull you back.
Oliver: Did you have to push with a 3-ton truck?
Chloe: I didn't think a tricycle would be a strong enough point.
Oliver: You saved my life, Chloe. Both the myth... and the man.
Lois: So... what was that about?
Oliver: Uh-oh. I've seen that look before, usually right before you sock me in the jaw.
Clark: I heard you were back.
Oliver: You do know, of course, you look absolute ridiculous in that, right? And I got a great tailor, hook you up with a little color, maybe.
Oliver: You've done a hell of a job keeping the world safe on your own, Clark. I'm here to help you now.
Clark: Good. Something tells me...soon the world will need all the help we can get.
