Roy Harper: So, "new Roy" goes by Red Arrow. Wow. That's an original name.
Oliver Queen: It's a curse, isn't it. Having me for a mentor. Speedy, Red Arrow... Artemis. The three of you all poster children of the "Stay away from Green Arrow club".
Red Arrow: I may have not always shown it over the years, but I don't feel that way. Neither did Artemis. And trust me, I know Roy doesn't feel that way either. Not really. You're a good man, Ollie. So get back in there. He needs you, whether he knows it or not.
Bart Allen: [about the fallen heroes shrine] So, why is this here? I mean, it's pretty and everything, but these people are heroes. In the line of duty and all that. They should have giant statues, big crashing memorials in the Hall of Justice or something.
Jaime Reyes: Yeah, I asked that too. Captain Atom said the League don't want or need a public shrine to it's fallen. But I dunno. Seems to me they just don't wanna advertise we're not immortal. The handful of regular people who've seen me in action think I'm this guy in a new costume
[points at a shrine of Ted Kord]
Jaime Reyes: The world will never know of Ted Kord's sacrifice.
Bart Allen: But you know. And you're carrying on the grand Blue Beetle heroic tradition, right?
Jaime Reyes: I wish. It's such a total rip. Superboy has Superman, Wonder Girl has Wonder Woman, Robin has Batman, Nightwing AND Batgirl... You've been in this era, like what? Five minutes? And already you have three Flash mentors. One who feeds you junk food. But me... I never even got the chance to meet the guy who should have been my mentor.
Bart Allen: Heh, I hear that. You know, WE have more in common than you think. Our love of Chicken Whizzies for example? Let me buy ya some to replace the bag I salvaged. We'll hang, it'll be totally crash.
Jaime Reyes: Uh, sure.
Bart Allen: Great!... Got any money?
Roy Harper: So, let me get this straight. While I was on ice you found another Roy Harper, the sidekicks formed their own team, aliens invaded the Earth, and Ollie grew that dopey goatee?
Red Arrow: We try not to call ourselves "sidekicks".
Oliver Queen: You don't like the goatee?
Red Arrow: Lex Luthor and the Light, this criminal organization he works with, abducted you. they amputated your arm.
Roy Harper: Why? To keep me from using my bow?
Red Arrow: No, they needed an endless supply of your DNA. To perfect their human cloning process...
Roy Harper: So that's what you are. A clone.
Red Arrow: Yeah... they grew me, or rather force-grew me. In a matter of months, I looked your age. They programmed me with all your memories and skills... and worse.
Oliver Queen: Then they spoon-fed me clues to your location. I thought I was doing detective's work, but in hindsight... you've been missing three months. I'd been going crazy, so when I found you- him... I didn't question the good fortune. I had no idea it wasn't the real... the original you. No idea Luthor had stored you on ice all this time.
Roy Harper: [to Red Arrow] So... what you're saying is, you took my place. You've been living my life for eight years.
Oliver Queen: And he's been tirelessly searching for you in five of those years.
Roy Harper: Huh, but not you, Ollie. You gave up on me.
Red Arrow: I don't want to be the cause of more conflict between you two. I'd understand if you'd never want to lay eyes on me again.
Roy Harper: I dunno. Seems the clone didn't do anything wrong. He didn't ask to be created, plus he found me. I can't blame him for this.
Roy Harper: BUT I CAN TOTALLY BLAME YOU!
Oliver Queen: Roy, I...
Roy Harper: We were partners! Friends! How could you not know I had been replaced? How could you leave me in Luthor's hands for eight years?... And how did I not see how useless you are. Get out. GET OUT!
[Oliver sadly leaves the room]
Roy Harper: Look, uh "Roy"... I need some time to process all this.
Red Arrow: I understand.
[Roy leaps at Lex Luthor, tossing a detonation cord that wraps itself around Luthor's arm. Roy holds up a detonation trigger]
Speedy: That's detonation cord, Luthor. The kind LexCorp sells illegally. It's the perfect revenge, I use your own tech to do you what you did to me.
Lex Luthor: Except we gave you anesthesia. Your method seems tad more... violent.
Speedy: We reap what we sow, Luthor.
Lex Luthor: Indeed, but are you prepared for the harvest?
[Roy is surrounded by LexCorp security]
Lex Luthor: Vengeance is a sucker's game, son. And yours can only be achieved at the cost of your own life.
Speedy: You think I won't pay that cost?
Lex Luthor: Honestly? I have no idea. But I might just be dying to find out.
Otis: You want we should take him out now, Mr. Luthor?
Lex Luthor: No, Otis. I'm content to wait patiently for young Mr. Harper's decision.
Speedy: Don't mock me, Luthor! To get my revenge, I'd run any risk!
Lex Luthor: I don't believe in risk. I believe in preparation.
Paula Crock: [At Artemis' grave] Thank you for coming, Wally. This has been the hardest two days of my life. Harder than prison, than... losing the use of my legs, and losing Jade to the life... I could not have survive this without you.
[Chesire and Sportsmaster view the grave from afar]
Jade Nguyen: We had our differences, but Artemis was my sister. And I loved her. I should taken better care of her. Protected her from you for starters!
Lawrence 'Crusher' Crock: Yeah well, too late for that, little girl.
Jade Nguyen: But it's not too late to get vengeance on her killer. Aqualad is mine.
Lawrence 'Crusher' Crock: As usual, Jade, you're missing the point. Artemis' death is an insult to our professional reputations. The son of Black Manta cannot kill Sportmaster's daughter. Not without running it by me first. I can't let this stand, or everyone will think I'm a punk. You can have Aqualad, I want a reckoning with Manta.
Lex Luthor: Quite the arsenal you brought tonight, Mr. Harper.
Speedy: You haven't seen the half of it, Luthor!
Lex Luthor: Oh, I wasn't talking about the weaponry. I myself never go armed. No, the greatest arsenal any man can bring to the party consists of the resources of his own mind. His intelligence, his strategins, his force of will. And you, my young friend, have all of those in spades.
[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?
[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.
