Oliver: What's that?

Felicity: A Fern. It thrives on the light. I thought since 당신 were living here now, the place could do with a little sprucing.

Oliver: I let 당신 buy me a bed.

Felicity: 당신 were sleeping on the floor.

Felicity: I'm going to head out, too. I have to pull an early shift at work today, which may 또는 may not be the most depressing thing I've ever said.

Oliver: But we're still on for tomorrow night?

Felicity: Absolutely. I am going to turn 당신 into corporate master of the universe. Those board members are going to be begging to sell 퀸 Consolidated back to 당신 and your backers.

Oliver: Congratulations, John. And not just on the baby. 당신 and Lyla are happy.

John: Well, 당신 know, 당신 should try it some time.

Oliver: Last girlfriend, she's in the League of Assassins. My girlfriend before that, she shot my girlfriend before that. I'm not... not exactly a catch at the moment.

John: Maybe Felicity will change all that.

Oliver: It's... It's not the right time.

John: Things are as good now as they ever will be, Oliver. And 당신 사랑 her. 당신 even told her so.

Oliver: I was trying to fool Slade.

John: Yes. Except now the only person you're fooling is yourself. Thanks again.

Oliver: Hey, hey! How was work?

Felicity: "It" is not work. It is a soul crushing exercise in misery that offers health and dental. Suffice it to say, I am highly motivated to help convince the board to sell 당신 back the company. Unfortunately, 당신 don't really have the qualifications to run 퀸 Consolidated, but what 당신 do have is passion. 당신 care about the company and the people that work there. That's what 당신 have to get across to them. 당신 got to speak from the heart.

Oliver: Felicity... Would 당신 like to go out to 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 with me?

Felicity: I'm being serious here, Oliver.

Oliver: So am I.

Felicity: I don't want read... too much into this, but are 당신 asking me out on a date? Like an actual date? Like a... date-date?

Oliver: Su-- I mean, implication being with 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 that you...

Felicity: Usually I'm the one talking in sentence fragments.

Oliver: Would like to go to 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 with me?

Felicity: Yes.

Oliver: Queen, party of two.

Felicity: Hi.

Oliver: Hi.

Felicity: Hi.

Felicity: What?

Oliver: Nothing. I'm just--

Felicity: Nervous?

Oliver: Yeah.

Felicity: Line forms behind me.

Oliver: Scotch. Neat.

Felicity: Just the water for me, thanks.

Oliver: Are you-- Are 당신 sure? The booze might sort of help with the whole--

Felicity: The alcohol is not going to mix well with the three benzos I took.

Oliver: Am I being crazy? I mean, what do we have to be nervous about?

Felicity: Well, we've already exhausted every topic that one would normally talk about on a first 날짜 and a 초 날짜 and a third date, and every date, actually, and I've already seen 당신 shirtless. Multiple times. Shirtless, all the time.

Felicity: Thank you.

Oliver: Thank you.

Oliver: There are still a few things that 당신 don't know about me.

Felicity: Please. name one.

Oliver: The five years that I was away... I wasn't always on Lian Yu.

Felicity: I thought so. Where were you?

Oliver: Hong Kong... for one. And I have been thinking a lot recently about... My time there. The choices that I had to make.

Felicity: Those years sound like they were full of a whole lot of suck.

Oliver: I'm sorry. I'm just a little out of my element. The entire time that I was gone, I could never... completely trust someone. And when that goes on for so long, 당신 stop... seeing people for people. 당신 see... threats. 또는 targets. And when I decided to come home, I... I just didn't know how to turn that part of me off. Then I walked into your office. 당신 were the first person that I could see as a... a person. There was just something about you.

Felicity: Oh, yeah, I was chewing on a pen.

Oliver: It was red. Do 당신 remember when I told 당신 that because of what we do, I didn't think that I could be with someone that I... that I could really care about?

Felicity: Yeah, I remember.

Oliver: So maybe I was wrong.

Felicity: Oliver, are you--

Oliver: We need to talk.

Felicity: I don't want to talk. Which for me, I know, is a little unprecedented. But... As soon as we talk, it's over.

Oliver: I'm so sorry. I thought that I could be me and The Arrow... But I can't. Not now. Maybe not ever.

Felicity: Then say never. Stop... Dangling maybes. Say it's never going to work out between us. Say 당신 never loved me, say you--

Oliver: Felicity... Don't ask me to say that I don't 사랑 you.

Felicity: I told 당신 as soon as we talked... It would be over.
