"Justice League Unlimited: Double Date (#2.6)" (2005)
[Black Canary and Green Arrow are chasing Huntress and The Question on her motorcycle]
Green Arrow: You're not supposed to drive when you're angry.
Black Canary: They're heading towards the waterfront. Hang on!
Green Arrow: It's so funny you think you have to tell me that.

[Black Canary is following The Question's car onto railway tracks]
Green Arrow: Are we dead yet.
Black Canary: No.
Green Arrow: ARE WE DEAD YET!
Black Canary: Look, if we die, I promise I'll let you know.

Steven Mandragora: I am doing my best. You can't blame me for being nervous, I have enemies everywhere. Even Justice League enemies. Besides, I'm ravaged by hunger. Feed me and I shall squeal on all manner of former associates. Speaking of squealing, Black Canary, I notice you can't take your eyes off of me. One can hardly blame you. Perhaps after Agent Faraday helps absolve me of my alleged crimes, I could put you in a cage and have you sing for me.
Green Arrow: Listen, you giant tub of...!
Agent King Faraday: Green Arrow, may I remind you that you're here strictly in a security capacity?
Steven Mandragora: Yes, why don't you go and fetch me another four platters of oysters like a good little leprechaun? I'm sure your girlfriend and I will have much to discuss while you're gone. I like my oysters sweet, by the way. Sweet and juicy.
Black Canary: Let him talk, Arrow. With all the enemies he's made, he never knows if he's eating his last meal.
[Mandragora laughs heartily]

Black Canary: [after they have been teleported out of the tunnel and land in the pier] I can't believe you! I rebuilt that bike by hand!
Green Arrow: You're absolutely right. I'm sorry I saved our lives.
[Black Canary swims away growling]
Green Arrow: And J'onn thinks Huntress is the unstable one.

Green Arrow: I strongly advise you to stay down. These impact arrows are non-lethal, but they hurt... a lot.

Green Arrow: Don't make me sic Black Canary on you. You've only seen her nice side so far.

[Huntress and Question leap over a fence and find Green Arrow and Black Canary in their path]
Black Canary: You're not going in that house, Huntress. That, I promise.
Huntress: I'm here on League business, Canary.
Green Arrow: That's not what J'onn said. We just called him.
Huntress: OK, that didn't work.
The Question: Maybe this will.
[punches Green Arrow. Huntress then attacks Black Canary]

Injustice: Gods Among Us (2013) (VG)
Green Arrow: [while fighting Nightwing] He took you in, trained you. Sure, he can be an uptight jerk, but you abandoned him for Superman?
Nightwing (II): [Knocks down Green Arrow] I'm not Dick Grayson.
Batman: [Coming in] This is Damian Wayne.
Green Arrow: Wayne?
Nightwing (II): His son.
[Batman pushes Nightwing aside]
Nightwing (II): But Superman's been more of a father than you ever were.
Batman: You stopped being my son when you killed Dick Grayson. *He* was my son.
[Defeating him in a fight]
Batman: You're dead to me.

Killer Frost: Do you ever shut up?
Green Arrow: Every other Tuesday.

Green Arrow: How's your sister, Hoar?
Killer Frost: You are SO dead!

Green Arrow: Grundy, say "Fire bad!"
Solomon Grundy: You're not funny!

Green Arrow: Grundy, say "Fire bad!"
Solomon Grundy: Fire is bad.

Green Arrow: Shit!
[He fires an arrow, but Killer Frost freezes it]
Green Arrow: Killer Frost.
Killer Frost: Playtime, Grundy.
Solomon Grundy: Arrow Man!

Green Arrow (2010) (V)
Green Arrow: Sorry I'm late. But you try changing clothes in a hybrid.

Green Arrow: That dragon almost got us.
Princess Perdita: You do realize I'm 10 and do not require fairy-tale metaphors?
Green Arrow: Sorry. It's my first time rescuing royalty.
Princess Perdita: It is quite a forgivable sin... Robin Hood.

Henchman #3: Kill you! Kill you! Kill you!
Green Arrow: Me? Weren't you after the kid?
Princess Perdita: Excuse me?
Green Arrow: Kidding, your Kidness. Kidding.

Merlyn the Magnificent: So, Arrow, once again you've stumbled onto my stage and horned in on my act.
Green Arrow: That's me. Always hogging the limelight.
Merlyn the Magnificent: I seem to recall you lost our last duel. All eight of our last duels.
Princess Perdita: You lost?
Green Arrow: Yeah, but I've been practicing. A lot.

Green Arrow: Vertigo.
Count Vertigo: Count Vertigo to you, peasant. Soon to be King Vertigo once I've dispatched you and the little bi...
Black Canary: Watch your mouth.
[Black Canary sonic screams at Vertigo]

[last lines]
[Black Canary sighs]
Black Canary: What would you do without me?
Green Arrow: Well, now that you mention it, and since I'm on my knees anyway.
[Green Arrow opens a small box to reveal an engagement ring to Black Canary]
Green Arrow: I can't live without you, babe. Literally.
[Black Canary stares in stunned silence]
Princess Perdita: Say yes. After all, every queen needs a consort.
Green Arrow: She's right... Every queen does.
Black Canary: [she giggles] Yes. The answer is yes.
[Green Arrow puts the ring on Black Canary's finger and kisses her hand. They embrace and kiss]

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (2014) (VG)
Green Arrow: I'm not super! Any talents I have I worked hard for.

Green Arrow: Seriously? What's wrong with the name "Arrow Cave"?

Green Arrow: Who needs a Bat-Signal? The a green arrow in almost every set of traffic lights.

Green Arrow: My name is Oliver Queen. I've been stranded on an island with only one goal: survive. Survive... and one day use a proper toilet again. I must fulfill my father's dying wish, to use the list of names he gave me bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become someTHING else. Something green and pointy... and arrow-y.

Green Arrow: So far, I've learned how to give a bowl of water a good slapping. But my training is by no means complete. Like, what if I'm attacked by a bowl of soup? Not watery soup... that really thick, thick pea soup. Whole different fighting style to water.
Green Arrow: Anyway, I'm not alone on this island; I've met another survivor, Slade Wilson. He's okay, he just likes to take his top off a little too much and hits me in the face a lot. But he assures me it's for my own good. He's agreed to train me to fight. And to survive.

"Justice League Unlimited: To Another Shore (#3.4)" (2005)
Sub Henchman: [to Green Arrow] What are you doing in here?
[Green Arrow knocks out the henchman]
Green Arrow: Well, for one thing, it's freezing outside.

Wonder Woman: Mr. Terrific can fill in. He's smart enough to do monitor duty and the Sunday Times crossword puzzle at the same time.
Mr. Terrific: Go ahead, J'onn - I'm already finished with the crossword.
Green Arrow: You did it in ink again, didn't you?

[GA just cut himself out of a block of ice]
Green Arrow: And Black Canary said a buzzsaw arrow was self-indulgent.

[Wonder Woman appears in a smart suit]
Green Arrow: [wolf whistle] Looking good, Diana. Hot date?
Wonder Woman: No such luck, Ollie. I'm representing Themyscira at the global warming conference.
Green Arrow: Way to go, man. Save the planet!

J'onn J'onzz: Mr. Terrific is more that capable, but I insist on remaining where I am needed.
Wonder Woman: Turn around and talk to me.
[J'onn turns to Diana]
Wonder Woman: You've been cooped up like a hermit in the Watchtower for almost two years now.
J'onn J'onzz: I can better serve the League...
Wonder Woman: We're not even gonna have that argument. You're a super-strong, near-invulnerable, telepathic shape-shifter. The reason you aren't on the ground protecting humanity is because you don't want to be. You don't actually like humanity all that much, do you?
J'onn J'onzz: ...I don't dislike them.
Wonder Woman: You're not the only newcomer to this world around here. People have strange ways and take a lot of getting used to.But it's worth the effort. They're worth it.
Green Arrow: She's got your number, J'onn. You need to mingle, maybe take a meal in the commissary every once in awhile.
J'onn J'onzz: My Martian physiology doesn't require as many meals as a human.
Wonder Woman: You know what he means. You must be terribly lonely. I've gotta go, but we're not done talking about this.

"Justice League Unlimited: Initiation (#1.1)" (2004)
Batman: We sent the Lantern for you because you never gave us an answer.
Green Arrow: Come on, I don't belong up here, fighting monsters and supervillians. I just help the little guy and a big club like this, you tend to forget all about him. So, gee whiz, I'm flattered to be asked and all, but no thanks.
Batman: Suit yourself. Those monsters you don't fight? They tend to step on little guys.

Green Arrow: Is that a containment suit?
Captain Atom: Mmm-hm. I'm not flesh and blood anymore, just living energy.
Green Arrow: That wouldn't be nuclear energy, would it?
Captain Atom: With a name like "Captain Atom," what do you think?
Green Arrow: [Disgusted] I think you're what I marched against back in college.

Green Arrow: [draws his bow] Say "ah", dirtbag!

[during the robbery, an employee trips the alarm; the robber points a gun at him]
Robber #2: Come on, that's not gonna do us any good now!
[the robber pushes him away and re-aims his gun]
Robber #1: I'll sure feel better.
[an arrow snatches the gun out of his hand]
Green Arrow: But it'll make me a little cranky.

Green Arrow: I gotta say that's not much of a plan. If you get that close, the heat will FRY you.
Captain Atom: I know.
Green Arrow: But...
Captain Atom: If this doesn't work, contact the League. They'll know what to do next.
Green Arrow: Captain.
[offers his hand. They shake hands]

"The Flash: Legends of Today (#2.8)" (2015)
Damien Darhk: Oh, you brought arrows to a gun fight.
Green Arrow: What guns?
[turns on magnetic arrow taking the A.R.G.U.S. agents' guns]
Damien Darhk: Oh, that was actually pretty clever. Kill them.

Green Arrow: We need to expose his wings.
The Flash: I'm open to suggestions.
Green Arrow: What, now you're listening to me?
The Flash: It's your city, Oliver.

Vandal Savage: You tried those arrows once before, remember? They didn't quite finish the job, now, did they?
Green Arrow: I'm not gonna make that mistake again.
The Flash: You're gonna leave Kendra alone.
Vandal Savage: I can't do that. While my destiny is to live forever, Chay-Ara's is to die, as is yours now.

[as they duck behind a church pew as Vandal Savage fires the Staff of Horus]
Green Arrow: Any ideas?
The Flash: Oh, now you'll listen to me?
Green Arrow: It's your city.

Green Arrow: Don't move!
Vandal Savage: Then how will I kill you all?

"Arrow: Unthinkable (#2.23)" (2014)
Arrow: Sara, don't!
Isabel Rochev: Kill me. Don't kill me. Doesn't matter. I beat you. I took away the one...
[Nyssa hits her on the back of the neck]
Nyssa al Ghul: [to Arrow] Your reticence to do what is necessary is why your city burns.

Quentin Lance: I thought these guys were trying to destroy the city, not escape it.
Arrow: A.R.G.U.S. is going to level the city to stop them from getting out. That's what Slade's planning on. He knows Waller's tactics.
Nyssa al Ghul: Fortunately, with Slade's men attempting to leave via the tunnel, all our targets will be grouped in a single place.
Arrow: We need to take it. Gather your men.
Quentin Lance: What about Laurel? Wilson took her for a reason.
Arrow: I know what it is. But the city comes first.
Quentin Lance: This is my daughter.
Quentin Lance: [to Sara] This is your sister!
Quentin Lance: [to Arrow] You can't just leave her like this! Look, I know you said you were trying another way, and I respect that. But Slade Wilson? His men? Their monsters! And monsters, they need to be destroyed. You've killed before. Tonight, I suggest you get back in the habit.

Arrow: It's over, Slade! Your army is broken.
Slade Wilson: And I pity them. But once again, you miss the point. I have the one you love. You're going to meet me where I say. Otherwise, I'm going to kill her.
Arrow: No, you do what you have to. I'm done playing your games.
Slade Wilson: You're done when I say you're done! I was surprised. I thought you had a thing for stronger woman, but that I have met her... I can see the appeal. She is quite lovely... your Felicity.

Slade Wilson: Yes. Countless nights of taking from you all that you took from me.
Arrow: By killing the woman I love?
Slade Wilson: Yes.
Arrow: Like you love Shado.
Slade Wilson: Yes.
Arrow: You see her. Don't you? Well, hat does she look like in your madness, Slade? What does she say to you? I remember her being beautiful. Young. Kind. She would be horrified by what you've done in her name.
Slade Wilson: What I have done? What I have done is what you lack the courage to do! To fight for her! So... when her body lies at your feet, her blood wet against your skin, then you will know how I feel!
Arrow: I already know how you feel. I know what it's like to hate. To want revenge. And now I know how it feels to see my enemy so distracted, he doesn't see the real danger is right in front of him.

Deathstroke: You must have quite a bit of faith in this cure if you've come alone.
Arrow: We didn't come alone.
[the League of Assassins arrive]

"Justice League Unlimited: Patriot Act (#3.7)" (2006)
General Wade Eiling: Where's Superman?
Green Arrow: Busy. Can I help you?
General Wade Eiling: Yeah, hold this for me!
[Eiling throws a giant piece of debris at the League members]

[even a direct hit from the Quantum Arrow doesn't stop General Eiling]
Speedy: We are so dead!
Green Arrow: Could be.

[Green Arrow and Speedy are pelting Eiling with arrows, which are having no effect]
General Wade Eiling: You spoiled, rich little twerp!
Green Arrow: I think he means me.
Speedy: Oh. For a second, I was all mad.

[the heroes are part of a parade]
Shining Knight: I'd slay the ogre Blunderbore all over again rather than put myself on display in this manner, even though that ogre turned out to be...
Vigilante, Green Arrow, Stargirl, S.T.R.I.P.E.: Morgan LeFay.
S.T.R.I.P.E.: We've all heard it.
Shining Knight: ...'tis a good story.

[during the battle with the General, Mr. Terrific finally calls to say he's scrounged up reinforcements]
Green Arrow: You wanted Superman? You got...
[two forms materialize - the Crimson Avenger, and Speedy]
Green Arrow: ...the Crimson Avenger, and my ex-sidekick.
Speedy: [turns to him] Ex-PARTNER.
Green Arrow: Speedy, we gotta do this now?

"Arrow: Schism (#4.23)" (2016)
Green Arrow: Darhk!
Damien Darhk: What does a guy have to do to end the world in peace?

Quentin Lance: [Oliver is shot with an arrow] Now you know how it feels.
Green Arrow: Wait. I thought you and Donna...
Quentin Lance: Don't worry, she's safe. But I had to come back and stand with my city, 'cause this Oliver Queen guy gives a hell of a speech.

Damien Darhk: What are you going to do now, Oliver? Stop the posturing. We both know you can't do it. You spared the life of the man who killed your own mother.
Green Arrow: And you killed a friend of mine. You killed tens of thousands of innocent people. With Slade Wilson, I had a choice. This time, I don't.
[he stabs Darhk with his arrow]

Damien Darhk: That is why I did this. Humanity is feckless, and I wanted to cleanse it or a millennia worth of rot it has been infected by, and I will do it!
Green Arrow: No, you won't.
Damien Darhk: Okay, just for fun, how are you going to stop me?
Green Arrow: Because it won't just me who's gonna stop you.

Green Arrow: It's not so easy without the magic, is it?
Damien Darhk: Oh, I don't need magic. I'm a former member of the League of Assassins, or have you forgotten that?
Green Arrow: Remind me.

"Justice League Unlimited: Far from Home (#3.10)" (2006)
Supergirl: [Watching a recording of Supergirl] Tell Ma and Pa I love them. And, I love you too, Clark. Don't take this the wrong way, but I've found a place where I can make a difference. Where I'm more than Superman's kid cousin. I... I feel I belong here. Also, I met this boy.
Green Arrow: You should had seen her. She was amazing.
Green Lantern: She's a grown woman now, capable of choosing...
Superman: Kara's headstrong, but she's always made good decisions. I trust her judgement. But you were right, Ollie. I wish I had told her.
Green Arrow: It's okay, Clark. She knows.
Superman: Now, this boy Kara likes so much, does he have a name?
[John and Ollie go silent. Both too scared to tell Clark that Kara's fallen in love with a Brainiac]

Green Arrow: Some kid, huh? Today's her 21st birthday, but she'd rather be here practicing than go out into town with me and Dinah.
Superman: Good for her.
Green Arrow: Hey, at least we want to spend some time with her. You ever think about how she must feel? She's always an outsider.
Superman: I know a little bit about that myself, Ollie.
Green Arrow: Just a little. You came to Earth as a baby, grew up here. Kara spent most of her life on a planet with technology hundreds of years ahead of ours. Se's gotta feel like she's trapped in the Stone Age.
Superman: I've tried to make her feel at home.
Green Arrow: How? Seems to me like you treat her just like another cape.
Superman: I was never happy about Kara going into the family business, but now that she's decided it's what she wants to do, I've tried to step back and let her develop into her own person. I didn't want her living in the shadow of being "Superman's cousin".
Green Arrow: This may shock you, but she's proud to be your cousin. She even changed her costume to look more like yours.
Superman: Yes... I'm very proud. But don't tell her that.
Green Arrow: No, that's a job for Superman.

Green Arrow: Admit it, genius, you're in love with her.
Brainiac 5: Ludicrous, we've just met. Moreover, as a Coluan, I'm ruled by intellect, not emotion.
Green Arrow: So in love with her.
Brainiac 5: Increased sweat gland production, shortness of breath, inability to concentrate, I thought it was guilt... but I am in love. How did you know?
Green Arrow: Just call me Cupid, junior. I never miss.

Brainiac 5: What do you pilot back home?
Supergirl: Usually just a pick-up.
Brainiac 5: A pick-up, is that a type of star cruiser?
Green Arrow: Yes. Yes, it is.

"Super Friends: Gulliver's Gigantic Goof (#1.14)" (1973)
Green Arrow: [in the jeep's dashboard] Looks like a garage sale.

Female photographer: Don't tthey ever give up?
Green Arrow: They're probably thinking the same about us.

Col. Wilcox: Green Arrow. I am glad to see you.
Green Arrow: I wish I could say the same, Colonel Wilcow. Where are you?

Green Arrow: Am I glad to see you.
Batman: [trapped] Not as glad as we are to see you, I bet.

"Arrow: The Calm (#3.1)" (2014)
[first lines]
Arrow: Vincent Steelgrave... You have failed this city!

Arrow: I gotta go. Someplace I have to be.
Quentin Lance: You got a hot date or something?

Werner Zytle: I'm Werner Zytle. But you can call me Vertigo.
Arrow: The Count's dead!
Werner Zytle: Some things never die. You, for example. It's frustrating. Just means I have to try a little bit harder.

Thug #2: [pulls out knife] Come on! What are you waiting for?
[Roys takes him down]
Arrow: My partner.

"Arrow: Lost in the Flood (#4.22)" (2016)
Damien Darhk: [incinerates incoming arrows] Cool. You know, I didn't even mean to do that.
[Spartan fires pistol at Darhk]
Damien Darhk: I turn steel arrows into dust and you thought lead would do the trick?
Spartan: He's not human anymore.
Damien Darhk: Oh, I'm still human. Just better.
Green Arrow: Doesn't give you the right to remake the world.
Damien Darhk: Why not? It's been done before. Noah and the Flood. People even worship the responsible party.
[force pushes Green Arrow and Spartan into the concrete steps]
Damien Darhk: This might smart a little. I'm pulling the oxygen out of your bodies, molecule by molecule, but here's the good news: I'm not going to kill you. Well, not right now at least. Instead, I'm going to regain control of Rubicon. That way, when the whole world goes all "Dr. Strangelove", you can feel your skin melt from Armageddon.

Green Arrow: I should have taken your head.
Malcolm Merlyn: That's always been your problem... inability to do what is necessary.
Green Arrow: Laurel is dead because of you.
Malcolm Merlyn: What are you going to do? We've already established you're not going to kill me.

Green Arrow: Now, you know the way out, so if we can't stop Machin, then you are going to lead the evacuation.
Malcolm Merlyn: I don't recall volunteering. And even if I did, where exactly would I evacuate them to? Everything about our heads is going under a mushroom cloud.
Green Arrow: I refuse to believe that.
Malcolm Merlyn: Because you're a fool.
Green Arrow: Because I have hope.

"Arrow: Guilty (#3.6)" (2014)
Arrow: Second time I found you with a body!
Ted Grant: I never killed anybody. I'm being set up.
Arrow: Why should I believe you?
Ted Grant: Because I used to be a vigilante. I used to be you.

Ted Grant: This is were I kept my supplies. A safe place separate from my day job. I'm sure you've got one just like it.
Arrow: Mine's bigger.

Isaac Stanzler: Don't you get it! He's using you! You're not a human being, man. You were just another weapon in his arsenal. And the second you do something wrong, he'll turn his back on you. He'll abandon you!
Arsenal: I'm not you. Don't abandon me.
Arrow: Never.

"Vixen: Episode #1.6" (2015)
Arrow: My point is... it was foolish of you to think we'd stay away just because you told us to. Almost as foolish as you taking on Detroit's criminal element in a brown leotard.
Mari McCabe: And what's wrong with brown?

Mari McCabe: Hey, I thought I was supposed to have a cool name or something.
The Flash: You think the "Arrow" is cool?
Arrow: Keep talking, Flash.

The Flash: [to Mari] If it helps, Cisco's been calling you Vixen. Not that Cisco is a name of any one affiliated with me. He's not. I mean, if there was a Cisco affiliated with me. Which there isn't.
Arrow: Were you and Felicity separated at birth?
The Flash: I hope not. Because if we had been, that kiss would be weird.
Arrow: You kissed her?
The Flash: You know what? I gotta run.

"Arrow: What We Leave Behind (#5.9)" (2016)
Green Arrow: Justin Claybourne, you have failed this city.
Prometheus: Not as badly as you have, Mr. Queen.

Green Arrow: You have until 11 A.M. tomorrow to make this right?
Justin Claybourne: And what happens if I don't?
[Green Arrow shoots him in the leg]
Green Arrow: I'll aim higher.

Prometheus: Did you hesitate at all when you killed him, or was he just another name you crossed off your list?
Green Arrow: If you want revenge, I'm right here.
Prometheus: This is about so much more than revenge.

"Arrow: Vigilante (#5.7)" (2016)
Green Arrow: Hey! Keep your guns down.
Vigilante: So you can just shoot me? We're on the same side.
Green Arrow: You're outta control!
Vigilante: This city is out of control. And you haven't been able to save it.
[Vigilante shoots at the ground as Green Arrow starts to take a step towards him]
Vigilante: Take one more step and one of you isn't going home tonight. If you're not with me, then you're against me.
Green Arrow: Then I'm against you.
Vigilante: Then you're a dead man.

Green Arrow: What do you want?
Vigilante: To operate without interference.
Green Arrow: So you can keep killing people?
Vigilante: Criminals.
Green Arrow: Like the people at the motel?
Vigilante: Collateral damage. You don't seem to know this is a war. Maybe that's why you're losing.

Vigilante: You're not getting the job done because you don't take it seriously enough maybe because you haven't lost anyone. Maybe because you haven't lost anyone. You don't have a full understanding of what's out there.
Green Arrow: Oh, I've lost people. Almost more than I can bear.
Vigilante: Then it hasn't been more than you can bear. Maybe you need a push.
Green Arrow: You're right. This is a war, but I'm gonna fight it the right way because I am all this city has.

"Arrow: Green Arrow (#4.1)" (2015)
Damien Darhk: Situation report. Mr. Slater.
Green Arrow: Sorry. He had to get off at an earlier stop.
Damien Darhk: You can't be the Arrow, he died. So who are you?
Green Arrow: You're about to find out.

Green Arrow: Sorry. You had to get off at an earlier stop.
Damien Darhk: You can't be the Arrow. He died. So who are you?
Green Arrow: You're about to find out.
[loads and aims his bow at Damien]
Green Arrow: Stop the train!
Damien Darhk: No, I don't want to. Even if I did, I couldn't. I destroyed the braking system 20 miles away.
Green Arrow: Willing to die to destroy a train station?
Damien Darhk: No, that would be ridiculous.
Green Arrow: Then how are you planning on getting off the train?
Damien Darhk: Oh you don't know who I am, do you? I'm Damien Darhk.

Green Arrow: [broadcasting on the emergency channel] Six months ago, the Arrow died. But what he stood for didn't. It lived on, and the heroes took up his mantle. People who believe that this city should never descend into hopelessness. Who believe that although life is full of darkness, that darkness can be defeated by light. And tonight, I am declaring my intention to stand with them, to fight for this city, to be the symbol of hope that the Arrow never was. I am the Green Arrow.

"Justice League Unlimited: Fearful Symmetry (#1.6)" (2004)
Green Arrow: This whole trip might just prove the kid shouldn't eat nachos before bed.
The Question: Peanut butter sandwiches.
Supergirl: How did... What, do you go through my trash?
The Question: Please. I go through everyone's trash.

The Question: Reaching back to Ancient Egypt, there's been a single cabal of powerful individuals directing the course of human history. But the common man prefers to believe they don't exist, which aids their success.
Supergirl: Global warming? Military upheavals in the third world? Actors elected to public office?
Green Arrow: The spread of coffee bars? Germs outpacing antibiotics? And boy bands? Come on! Who would gain from all this?
The Question: Who indeed?

Green Arrow: Don't listen to this guy. Everything's conspiracies with him.
The Question: Not conspiracies. Conspiracy, singular.

"Arrow: Second Chances (#5.11)" (2017)
Green Arrow: We'd like you to join us. We can give you a home, a team, and a place to better train the use of your power.
Dinah Drake: I can take care of myself.
[turning to leave]
Dinah Drake: Oh, and, uh, if you get in my way, I'll send the three of you back to Star City with your nuts in a sling.
Wild Dog: [Dinah leaves] I thought that went pretty good.

Green Arrow: There's no sign of Boland. Sure this is the right spot, Mr. Terrific?
Curtis Holt: Am I still Mr. Terrific if I'm on comms and not in uniform?

"Arrow: Checkmate (#5.16)" (2017)
Adrian Chase: Remember, I'm always 10 steps ahead of you.
Green Arrow: You know, if that were true, you probably would have seen this coming.
Doris Chase: Adrian?
Adrian Chase: You shouldn't be here.
Doris Chase: How else was I supposed to find out the truth? You killed all those people.
Adrian Chase: It's not that simple.
Doris Chase: You killed them. It's simple. I know, baby. This can't be you. It's not you.

Adrian Chase: [to Oliver] Remember, I'm always 10 steps ahead of you.
Green Arrow: Well, honestly... I'm gonna keep both of us here until this building comes down on top of us.
Adrian Chase: Then you'd be dead.
Green Arrow: So would you.
Adrian Chase: Really? You really think I'd let that happen, Oliver?
[deactivates bomb]
Adrian Chase: Remember, I'm always 10 steps ahead of you.
Green Arrow: You know, if that were true, you probably would have seen this coming.
[Adrian's wife Doris walks in]

Superhero Fight Club (2015) (TV)
The Flash: Come on. Not even a hint?
Arrow: Nope. Look, you're part of the club now, so I thought you deserved a proper initiation.

Elevator Girl: I just have to say I think you two put the super in superhero.
Arrow: It's something we do to blow off steam.
The Flash: Wait, "we"?
Arrow: Just remember, this club only has one rule: there are no rules.

"Arrow: The Offer (#3.16)" (2015)
Arrow: Look out!
[Arrow pulls Black Canary out of the speeding van's way]
Arrow: You still need training.
Black Canary: When are you going to stop telling me what to do?
Arrow: When you no longer need training.

Quentin Lance: What, are you waiting around for a thank you?
Arrow: That's not why I do this.
[ziplines away]

"Arrow: Uprising (#3.12)" (2015)
Malcolm Merlyn: This is for Rebecca.
Danny Brickwell: What?
Malcolm Merlyn: You don't even know here name, do you? Is this the weapon you used to murder my wife?
Danny Brickwell: Everybody I dropped was with that piece.
Malcolm Merlyn: She was a good person, decent, kind. She ran the clinic here in the Glades.
Danny Brickwell: Brunette? Ha ha ha! Yeah. Now I remember. She was my first, my initiation into the Orchid Bay Butchers. Heh heh heh.
Malcolm Merlyn: You murdered her because you wanted into a gang?
Danny Brickwell: No. Because she was weak! Because she was crying, begging me not to kill her, but you won't get that from me, so come on! Finish it!
Arrow: Don't do it!
Malcolm Merlyn: You are too late.
Arrow: Drop the gun. No more death.
Malcolm Merlyn: That's easy for you to say. You just returned from the grave.
Arrow: Killing him won't balance the scales.
Malcolm Merlyn: When you have killed 503 people including your own son, you tend not to worry about scales, and don't tell me it won't stop the pain and it won't bring her back because you don't understand! If I had taken care of him back then, it could all be different. The League, the Undertaking, Tommy... Every choice I have made since my wife died.
Arrow: Then you made a different choice now for Thea.
Malcolm Merlyn: Thea will never forgive me.
Arrow: Start giving her reasons to.

Arrow: I've been gone, and I'm sorry, sorry for what the city has had to endure in my absence, but you did endure it, and the evidence of that struggle is lying at my feet. You did not fail this city, and I promise I will not fail you by leaving it again.

Superhero Fight Club 2.0 (2016) (V)
Green Arrow: If you don't know why you're here, you're about to find out.
Supergirl: You do know I let you kidnap me, right?
Green Arrow: No, we would've taken you.
The Flash: I really doubt it.
Supergirl: Not unless you have a kryptonite arrow in that quiver.
Green Arrow: Hmm, anyway.
Supergirl: So what's with all the mysterious mystery?
Green Arrow: [to Flash] You tell her.
Supergirl: Wait a sec, is this that Fight Club thing? Cool, I've heard so much about this! I'm so excited.
The Atom: You thought the abduction was cool? You're really going to like the upgrades.
The Flash: We felt we had to up the ante for someone of your abilities.
Supergirl: This is awesome. Is this where you train?
The Atom: It's more of a team-up training facility with Team Tech pulling the strings.

Green Arrow: Okay, there's six of us and one of them. I think we need to...
The Atom: Team-up?
Green Arrow, The Flash: Stop saying team-up!

"Arrow: Crucible (#2.4)" (2013)
Arrow: I want to see how you do in a real fight.
Black Canary: Good. I was looking for a fight.

John Diggle: You know, Oliver, somebody once told me that secrets have weight. The more you keep, the harder it is to keep moving.
Arrow: You see how hard I work out.

"The Flash: Flash vs. Arrow (#1.8)" (2014)
The Flash: [the Arrow fires explosion arrows into the wall behind him] You missed!
Arrow: No.
[the arrows explode]

Arrow: [fires a rope around the Flash] You need to calm down.
The Flash: And you need to hold on.
[drags the Arrow across the street as he runs off]

"Arrow: Identity (#2.2)" (2013)
Bronze Tiger: No kill shots? I was promised a fight. I hope you haven't lost your nerve.
Arrow: Find out.

China White: They still won't see you as anything more than the enemy. You'll never be anything but a criminal to them. Which means you'll never be a hero.
Arrow: As long as this city is safe, it doesn't matter.

"Justice League Unlimited: Divided We Fall (#2.12)" (2005)
Green Arrow: You remember what we did yesterday? We saved the world - again. You don't think that has any value, well, think again, pal. The Justice League goes on, with or without you. Look, nobody can question your service or commitment to making things better. If you're quitting because you think you've already done your fair share, we'll throw you a parade. But if you're quitting because it's easier then continuing the fight, then you're not the heroes we all thought you were. The world needs the Justice League... and the Justice League needs you, Superman.

Batman: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Green Arrow: "Who guards the guardians?" We've got it covered.

"Arrow: The Brave and the Bold (#3.8)" (2014)
Arsenal: Are we gonna let this go?
Arrow: What do you think?

Arrow: The only thing that hurts worse than an arrow going in is an arrow coming out!

"Justice League Unlimited: The Cat and the Canary (#2.1)" (2005)
Green Arrow: At least now I understand why you brought me along. You didn't need Green Arrow - you just needed 'green'.

Black Canary: Most people, after they've sold a company for three billion dollars, would just kick back and relax.
Green Arrow: I'm not most people. Besides, after taxes and the lawyers are through with you, you're lucky if you see a billion and a half.
Black Canary: My heart bleeds.

"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Inside the Outsiders! (#1.24)" (2009)
Green Arrow: [as he and Batman descend toward a lion, a tiger and a panther on a huge "scratching post"] This is another fine mess you've gotten me into.
Batman: How could I know she had knockout gas in her makeup compact?
Green Arrow: Oh, I don't know, maybe because you've fought her *like two dozen times*.

"Arrow: The Scientist (#2.8)" (2013)
Arrow: Who are you?
Cyrus Gold: Merely a follower.
Arrow: Of who?
Cyrus Gold: My brother.
Arrow: Did he give you the mirakuru? Did he inject you with it?
Cyrus Gold: No. He saved me with it.

"Smallville: Rage (#6.7)" (2006)
Lex Luthor: What do you think is faster, an arrow or a bullet?
Green Arrow: There's only one way to find out.

"Arrow: Human Target (#5.5)" (2016)
Green Arrow: I thought Church would put up more of a fight.
Rene Ramirez: Probably realized he didn't have to.
Green Arrow: What do you mean?
Rene Ramirez: I was hurtin' so bad, it... it got so I couldn't even see straight. Barely even remember telling him.
Green Arrow: Telling him what?
Rene Ramirez: Who you are. He knows you're Oliver Queen.

"Smallville: Finale (#10.21)" (2011)
Granny Goodness: Your mark has been lifted.
Gordon Godfrey: That's impossible.
Green Arrow: I got this friend - cool leather jacket, blurs faster than a speeding bullet. He's pretty good at impossible.
Desaad: You were so close to experiencing the rapture, known only to those who will be serving our lord for eternity while all the others perish. Do you really think you possess the power to vanquish our lord from the souls that he saved?
Green Arrow: No. But I have friends in high places.
[fires his arrows at the trio vanquishing them]

"Arrow: Tribute (#6.2)" (2017)
Green Arrow: Why did you leak that picture of me?
Anatoly Knyazev: As kapiushon? I did not. I told you, I am honorable man.

"Arrow: Brotherhood (#4.7)" (2015)
Green Arrow: It's nice of you to show up.
John Diggle: My brother needed me. The green one.

"Smallville: Justice (#6.11)" (2007)
Lex Luthor: [over a walkie-talkie] I don't care. I want a Level One lockdown. No one gets in or out.
Green Arrow: [behind him] Little late for that.
[Lex turns]
Green Arrow: You got 10 minutes to get your people out of here before I blow this place off the map.
Lex Luthor: You.
Green Arrow: You remember. I'm touched.
Lex Luthor: Well, it's a little hard to forget. Last time we met, you put an arrow in my chest.
Green Arrow: You put a bullet in mine. Bygones?
Lex Luthor: Go to hell.
Green Arrow: You first.

"Smallville: Absolute Justice (#9.11)" (2010)
Green Arrow: Red, white, and blue. Loud and proud to be an American. Nice.
Stargirl: Well, at least I'm proud of something other than myself.
Green Arrow: What's that supposed to mean?
Stargirl: I know what kind of hero you are, Green Arrow.
Green Arrow: Is the masked cheerleader really talking down to me?

"Young Justice: Independence Day (#1.1)" (2010)
Green Arrow: Roy, you just need to be patient.
Speedy: What I need is respect. They're treating us like kids. Worse, like sidekicks! We deserve better than this.
[to the other sidekicks]
Speedy: You're kidding, right? You're playing their game? Why? Because you think they play fair? Today was supposed to be the day, step one in becoming full-fledged members of the League.
Kid Flash: Well, sure, but I thought step one was the tour of the HQ.
Speedy: Except the Hall isn't the League's real HQ. I bet they never told you it's just a false front for tourists and a pit stop for catching zeta- beam teleporter-tubes to the real thing, an orbiting satellite called the Watchtower.
[Batman gives Green Arrow a look]
Green Arrow: I know, I know, but I thought we could make an exception. Or not.
Aquaman: You're not helping your cause here, son. Stand down or...
Speedy: Or what? You'll send me to my room? And I'm not your son!
Speedy: [at Green Arrow] I'm not even his. I thought I was his partner, but not anymore.

"Arrow: Taken (#4.15)" (2016)
Damien Darhk: I wondered how long it would take for your buddy Oliver to drag you into this.
Green Arrow: Where's the boy?
Damien Darhk: Oh, he's fine. I had him moved about two minutes before you and your posse disturbed my evening in. You know what? You might want to learn to be a little bit more discreet. Have you considered black instead of green?
Green Arrow: You tell me where you've taken him.
Damien Darhk: Or what? You'll fire an arrow at me? I think we've seen that movie before. I win, you lose, rinse, repeat.
Green Arrow: This time, it's different.
Damien Darhk: Oh, really?

"Arrow: Seeing Red (#2.20)" (2014)
Doctor Lockhart: Some of this damage is chronic. The cost of jumping off rooftops, I guess.
Arrow: I need to get back on my feet.
Doctor Lockhart: I can give you a brace, but you'll still be in horrendous amounts of pain. Six months ago, this cabinet would have been empty. The Chinese Triad was stopping all our med shipments - until someone stopped them. Ever since, I've been looking for a way to thank you.

"Young Justice: Agendas (#1.22)" (2012)
J'onn J'onzz: Another expansion of the League could generate another escalation of hostilities from our enemies. No one needs or wants another Injustice League.
Superman: Point taken. But the option remains to vote no on all candidates. So, I nominate Icon for League membership.
[a hologram of Icon appears]
Green Arrow: [chuckles] Why? Because you suspect Icon might be Kryptonian like you did with Captain Marvel?
Captain Marvel: You thought I was Kryptonian? Cool!
Wonder Woman: [to Superman] Icon interests me also. As does his protegé, Rocket.
[Rocket's hologram replaces Icon's]
Wonder Woman: [to Black Canary and Hawkgirl] Athena knows the League could use more female members.
Black Canary: Agreed.
Hawkwoman: Hear, hear!

"Smallville: Arrow (#6.4)" (2006)
The Green Arrow: I saved you.
Lois Lane: Yeah. From goons who were trying to find you. They're not the only one with a V for Vendetta on your little leather ass.
The Green Arrow: Little? I've really been working on the glutes lately, too.
Lois Lane: Did the humor come with the costume?
The Green Arrow: Did the Tomb Raider routine come from wanting daddy's attention?

"Smallville: Sacrifice (#9.19)" (2010)
Zod: Why don't you join me against our common enemy?
Green Arrow: Well, I'm flattered, but if I let you go after Checkmate, you'll start World War III.
[aims his bowcast at Zod]
Green Arrow: It's not an option.
Zod: Your conviction is admirable. But you can't possibly think you're faster than me.
Green Arrow: I've always been taught to favor accuracy over speed.

"Arrow: A.W.O.L. (#4.11)" (2016)
Green Arrow: Overwatch, we're on site.
Felicity Smoak: Excuse me?
Green Arrow: Well, I thought that it was time you got a code name. What do you think?
Felicity Smoak: It's perfect.
Green Arrow: Was gonna go with Oracle, but it was taken.

"Arrow: Fallout (#6.1)" (2017)
Alex Faust: That's an MGM-140. It's fire and forget. You can't stop it. You can't disarm it.
Green Arrow: No, but I have a very smart friend who can.

"Arrow: Three Ghosts (#2.9)" (2013)
Brother Blood: Brother Cyrus told me he killed you.
Arrow: Guess he's not as strong as you'd hoped. Where did you get the mirakuru? Who gave you the formula?
Brother Blood: It was a gift. A gift I would use to save this city from itself.

"Smallville: Siren (#7.11)" (2008)
Green Arrow: I like the look. Italian?
Black Canary: Why? You thinking of trading in your tights?

"Arrow: Sara (#3.2)" (2014)
Arrow: What is it, detective?
Quentin Lance: You okay? You look like someone peed in your cornflakes.

"Smallville: Odyssey (#8.1)" (2008)
Regan Matthews: [points gun at Green Arrow] There's a reason cowboys won the West. Playing with bows and arrows can only get you so far.
[Aquaman swims up from under the icy water and tosses Regan onto a pile of crates]
Green Arrow: Nice toss... for a fish out of water.

"Arrow: Broken Dolls (#2.3)" (2013)
Quentin Lance: What the hell are you doing? I thought you were done killing people!
Arrow: He'll live.
Quentin Lance: Yeah, but he'll report me to my lieutenant!
Arrow: He won't talk to anyone.
Quentin Lance: What makes you so sure?
Arrow: Because he has another shoulder.
[digs the arrow deeper into Tony Daniel's shoulder]

"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Day of the Dark Knight! (#1.5)" (2009)
Batman: We've just been teleported.
Green Arrow: [sarcastically] Ladies and gentlemen, the world's greatest detective.

"The Flash: Invasion! (#3.8)" (2016)
[first lines]
Green Arrow: Oh, wow! You really did it this time, Barry.
The Flash: Seriously?
Green Arrow: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, seriously! You to come to Star City, ask for my help, and then, inevitably, immediately, we end up the creek!

"Young Justice: Infiltrator (#1.6)" (2011)
Green Arrow: [about Artemis] Um, she's my new protége.
Kid Flash: Wha-what happened to your old one?
Computer: Recognize. Speedy. B-06.
Red Arrow: Well for starters, he doesn't go by Speedy any more. Call me Red Arrow.
Green Arrow: Roy - you look...
Red Arrow: Replaceable.

"Young Justice: Satisfaction (#2.8)" (2012)
[Seeing smoke coming from the LexCorp building]
Green Arrow: No, we can't be too late. I cannot have failed him again!
Red Arrow: No wait, look!
[Points at Speedy emerging from the building, carrying a briefcase]
Speedy: Hey guys, what took you soo long?
Green Arrow: Roy, are you alright?
Speedy: I'm good, well... better than I've been in eight years, anyway.
Green Arrow: You didn't...
Speedy: Kill Luthor? No. Not tonight.
Red Arrow: What's in the case?
Speedy: Satisfaction.
[opens the case, revealing a robotic arm]
Speedy: It's not elegant. Won't fool anyone into thinking it's actual flesh and blood, but it's more powerful and versatile than the model he gave his own bodyguard. And it will literally make me a living weapon. No one's putting me on ice again. Ever.
Green Arrow: Speedy... you sure you're okay?
Speedy: Speedy died eight years ago. But I kinda of like the sound of... Arsenal.

"Smallville: Hex (#8.17)" (2009)
Zatanna Zatara: Bravo. You found my book *and* pull it off in style.
Green Arrow: I wish I could say I've had the pleasure.
Zatanna Zatara: Oh, please, Oliver. Ask a billionaire for help, and then a vigilante steals *exactly* what I ask for? You need to work on your sleight of hand.

Injustice 2 (2017) (VG)
Green Arrow: [Arcade ending] Taking down that green-skinned bastard got me thinking about the people of my Earth. My universe's Brainiac had never come calling. I had to warn them. By the time I got home, it was too late. My Earth was 'this' close to being gone for good. But that's when the strangest cavalry you've ever seen rode in. It was a full-on, multiverse Justice League! They'd been hopping between universes, battling Brainiac in every one. I couldn't refuse when they asked me to join. I've seen what Brainiac can do. Nobody, in any universe, should have to face that threat again.

Ash vs. Lobo and the DC Dead (2016)
Green Arrow: Impressive tech. Mind if I ask where you got it?
Ash Williams: I could tell ya, but they'd probably sue ya.
Green Arrow: Hmm, I can afford it.

"Smallville: Ambush (#10.7)" (2010)
Clark Kent: It's over, Flag. We know you blew up that building.
Green Arrow: Fancy move attacking your own country.
Rick Flag: I did it *for* my country. If you kill Lane, you kill a movement. That registration act is nothing but a weapon to profile, hunt, and destroy us.
Green Arrow: We don't need a history lesson.
Rick Flag: Well, apparently you do, Shamrock. You've become the politicians' poster boy for full disclosure. They're gonna be on your doorstep soon, holding you up as a volunteer. Get up all the other heroes to stand up and be counted and be killed.
Clark Kent: We're not gonna let that happen.
Rick Flag: If the bill passes, it already has! Don't you see? America's turning against us. We have got to fight back, show strength, make them choose us as their leaders.
Clark Kent: You'll be stirring up anti-hero hysteria. Violence isn't the answer.
Rick Flag: Violence is the *only* answer. And more and more superheroes are coming to my side.

"Arrow: The Sin-Eater (#5.14)" (2017)
Green Arrow: Thank you, captain.
Frank Pike: Happy to help. It didn't hurt that the mayor vouched for you.
Green Arrow: I'm sorry about Billy Malone. I know that it's something I'm gonna have to deal with for the rest of my life.
Frank Pike: That's funny. That's what the mayor said.

"Arrow: Nanda Parbat (#3.15)" (2015)
Nyssa al Ghul: Your sister told us Merlyn killed Sara. Are you so lost you'd deprive me of my justice?
Arrow: This isn't justice. It's vengeance.
Nyssa al Ghul: Vengeance is justice.

"Arrow: Draw Back Your Bow (#3.7)" (2014)
Dr. Avery Pressnall: If you'll permit a professional observation... you could use a little therapy yourself.
Arrow: What gives you that impression?
Dr. Avery Pressnall: You mean, apart from the mask and the Robin Hood costume?

"Arrow: The Climb (#3.9)" (2014)
Arrow: Merry Christmas.
Quentin Lance: Well, I feel bad. I didn't get you anything.
Arrow: You keep the city safe.
Quentin Lance: So do you. You know, these days, you're the closest thing to a partner I got. Happy holidays.

"Arrow: Beyond Redemption (#4.4)" (2015)
Green Arrow: Captain Lance.
Quentin Lance: What, I don't get a code name like the rest of you?

"Arrow: Spectre of the Gun (#5.13)" (2017)
Vigilante: I just did you a favor. One less criminal on the street.
Green Arrow: Cold-blooded murder. You're the criminal.
Vigilante: I'm you. And the only difference between us is that I use a more efficient weapon.

"Smallville: Checkmate (#9.16)" (2010)
Amanda Waller: Green Arrow, welcome to Checkmate.
Green Arrow: You got the wrong Green Arrow. I don't remember signing up for any chess club.
Amanda Waller: You're a guest of the U.S. government. And the time has come for you to do your patriotic duty.
Green Arrow: Yeah, well, I didn't know Uncle Sam was into drugs and bondage. Kind of gives a whole new meaning to the "I Want You" posters, doesn't it?
