Oliver: William, what you were able to do, you're a hero.
William: Well, I had a pretty good example.
Oliver: It means a lot to me that I've had a chance to to see the type of man you've become. I hope you'll forgive me for lots of things eventually.
William: Dad, I already have. I mean, I know for you I only left a year ago. For me, it's been 20 years, and back then when I was a kid, I didn't understand what it meant to fight for something bigger than yourself, but now I do, and I'm really proud of you, Dad.
Oliver: Not as proud as I am of you.
William:..I'm gonna hug you now.
Oliver: You better.
Diggle: You know, Oliver, I once told you a long time ago that a soldier never lets a brother go into battle alone. I think that's why it was so hard for me to accept the idea that you weren't gonna make it out of this. I felt like I'd be failing you.
Oliver: You could never fail me, John.
Diggle: I'm gonna stick by your side for as long as I can, but I know you have to do this alone.
Oliver: Every mission has an end.
Diggle: I wish this one didn't.
Oliver: I couldn't have done any of this, any of it without you. You've always been my rock.
Diggle: Don't mean the best man you've ever known?
Oliver: I also mean that.
Oliver: For a very long time, I have hated this place. Just I'd think about all the people that it took from me. It would just... It would just make me so angry.
Mia: But you're not now?
Oliver: I'm still a little bit angry. This island taught me to survive. It turned me into someone else, somebody better than the person I was before. So despite my feelings There are no stories about the Green Arrow to tell if I don't make my way to Lian Yu, and I'm also not standing at this moment, looking at my daughter.
Mia: Thank you for letting me be a part of your story, even if it was only for a little while. Oliver :Mia, something tells me you're gonna create your own stories.
