Arrow Season 8 Episode 5: "Prochnost" Quotes
Roy: I think I'm gonna stick around for awhile. If you're going to be taking on a space guy, I figured you might need all the help you can get.
Diggle: Glad you changed your mind.
Roy: You know when I first met Oliver, he gave me a purpose. But, he also gave me all of you. Makes sense that having a team is what helps me in the future, so why wait? Besides, you know, I kind of miss this place.
Diggle: Welcome back Roy.
Mia: Every time I try and live up to my dad, or to prove that I can do what it is you all do, I fail.
Laurel: Do you think that your father is any better? If you're trying to live up to us, don't. We are just as flawed as anyone, especially me. All you can do is live up to yourself.
Anatoly: Remember the first thing I taught you?
Oliver: Living is not for the weak.
Anatoly: Your children are not weak, Oliver. They are also not children. Whatever it is you have to say, they can handle it. If you do not, they will never learn to be heroes.
Anatoly: You are ashamed. You have truly done some terrible things.
Oliver: Thank you for the reminder.
Anatoly: But, you have also done some good things. It's important that the kids see both.
Oliver: I'm your father, alright? It is my primary job in the world to protect you.
Mia: We don't need that. In the future, we're the ones that are saving the city.
Oliver: Well this isn't the future! This is months after I was heartbroken right before I left that I couldn't get you on the phone at your grandparents. So, I walked into your room to look at you one last time and you looked back at me from your crib.
Mia: And because you made the choice to protect us I had to spend my whole life alone. I didn't have a chance to know my brother to get to know you.
Oliver: I'm sorry that it worked out that way, and both of you can decide on your own how much you want to hate me and how much blame you want to assign. But, I made a promise to your mother to keep you safe and there is no world, there is no universe, there is no past, present, or future where I break it.
