Season 8 Quotes
|Season 8 / Episode 7: - Identity|
Clark Kent: Maybe my destiny is more than just secretly saving people. Maybe it was also to give people hope, someone to believe in.
Oliver Queen: I knew you'd catch on someday.
Clark Kent: Well, I just wanted to say thank you before you went on vacation.
Oliver Queen: Vacation's over Clark. I'm headed to Europe.
Clark Kent: On business?
Oliver Queen: Uh, yeah. Kinda. Kinda. You know my friends - the ones who like to dress up and kick ass? We're having a summit.
Clark Kent: What happened to the party plane?
Oliver Queen: Want to know the truth? I don't know. It's like, when I was zipping across the street, taking that punk down... Well, I felt like myself again, you know? Because that's who I am. I'm not the party boy who runs off on these lost rum-soaked weekends. I'm not some multinational corporate titan. That's not me. Underneath it all, the person I really am is Green Arrow.
|Season 8 / Episode 14: - Requiem|
Chloe Sullivan: Oliver can trust me
Clark Kent: I thought I could to
