Oliver Queen/Green Arrow
Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
When Clark tries to fly and crashes into the barn, it's approaching sunset, but the sun is still out and it's relatively bright. He and Kara have a brief conversation and superspeed to Metropolis, and it almost instantly becomes a pitch black night.
Clark: (about Kara) Maybe someone figured out where she flew off to. I can't believe I just said that out loud.
Publicist: I don't know what's gotten into you recently. Three weeks ago you're a small-time radio show host. Now the whole city's listening.
Godfrey: I need you to take me further. I want to be on every television, in every newspaper, on every computer screen. I want to touch every soul.
Publicist: The whole world. Exactly how do you propose to do that?
Godfrey: If I can plant an idea, a seed of doubt within people... it will grow until it devours their faith in each other and in these heroes. Faithless, they'll be ready to be lead down a new path. Humans are the best architects of their own undoing. All you have to do is give them enough rope... they'll hang themselves.
Publicist: Take it easy, Gordon. You sounded a little scary there.
Clark: The more I try to clear my mind, the more I hear.
Kara: Kal-El, instead of trying to force the noise out, why don't you just focus on one thing? Like that butterfly. Live inside that one noise. Make it your whole world.
Oliver: (to a photo of his dead parents) Mom. Hey, Dad. I've been, um, really trying to live my life in a way that would make you proud of me. I, uh, sort of feel like I've let you down. You always said the most important thing was taking care of others, and I, uh, I tried. But I failed at that. The woman that I, uh, I loved... she, she sacrificed everything to protect me, and, um, sorta trying to figure out how to live with that. I can't have other people risking their lives for me. This has to stop. I'm sorry.
Lois: (undercover as a dominatrix) You look like a man who needs a little correcting.
Godfrey: I'm on the hunt... for a little distraction.
Lois: I think the hunter has become the hunted.
Lois: (undercover as a dominatrix) You've been a bad boy. So...
Godfrey: Dangerous. What's your favorite tool?
Lois: Oh, uh, I'm pretty good with a torque wrench.
Godfrey: Huh, kinky. I'm a torque wrench virgin.
The Dark Force: Are you sure you can win against me? You know what I am. You know the doubt in your heart. You so-called heroes are false gods, all of you. And when people stop believing in you, you'll shatter like glass.
Clark: Just tell me! Where is she?
The Dark Force: I can see it. Underneath all that bravado, you're afraid you'll never be the hero you want to be. You wish you could kill me. And I"m not the only one, I can see that. You've felt that way before. Your heart is racing. You're at war with yourself. The turmoil is overwhelming.
Clark: Where is she?
The Dark Force: There is darkness in you, and great power. I think we'll go far together, you and I.
Clark: I will never help you.
The Dark Force: You don't have a choice.
Lois: Who knew Mr. Family Values had such a dark side?
Kara: Godfrey's not so special. There's two sides to everyone. Even heroes.
Lois: I thought it might get a little lonely. Maybe it's easier to be a hero when you don't have somebody tying you down. I'm sure you think of people without powers as... well, differently.
Kara: It's easy for people to just see the powers and not the person behind them. I guess even heroes need someone to come home to, huh?
Lois: Your cousin needs a better handle.
Clark: Just remember that heroes like her or the Blur... put them on too high a pedestal, they might let you down.
Lois: Thanks, Clark, but I get it. The super-powered are people, too. They wrestle with their own flaws, but the Blur is different. He's my hero. No matter what he's afraid of, I know he will always be there for me.
Clark: You sound like my father, that I was destined to fail.
Kara: Failure is something we all have to live with. But it's how you overcome it that defines you.

Lois: I just don't know how his chocolate and my peanut butter are going to mix.
Referencing the 1970s-80s marketing slogan for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, "Two great tastes that that taste great together. In the TV commercials, a person with chocolate and a person with peanut butter would inevitably collide and mix up their food. One would say "You got your peanut butter in my chocolate!" and the other would say, "You got your chocolate in my peanut butter!", and they'd end up happy with the resulting mixture.
Lois: "Wow, Lois, 007's got nothing on you."
Referencing the fictional spy James Bond, code number 007, created by author Ian Fleming in 1953. Bond has gone on to be the feature character in numerous movies featuring several different actors, the the first movie being Dr. No in 1962.
