Oliver: What's that?
Felicity: A Fern. It thrives on the light. I thought since toi were living here now, the place could do with a little sprucing.
Oliver: I let toi buy me a bed.
Felicity: toi 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 ou 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 toi into corporate master of the universe. Those board members are going to be begging to sell Queen Consolidated back to toi and your backers.
Oliver: Congratulations, John. And not just on the baby. toi and Lyla are happy.
John: Well, toi know, toi 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 toi l’amour her. toi 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 toi back the company. Unfortunately, toi don't really have the qualifications to run Queen Consolidated, but what toi do have is passion. toi care about the company and the people that work there. That's what toi have to get across to them. toi got to speak from the heart.
Oliver: Felicity... Would toi like to go out to dîner 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 toi asking me out on a date? Like an actual date? Like a... date-date?
Oliver: Su-- I mean, implication being with dîner that you...
Felicity: Usually I'm the one talking in sentence fragments.
Oliver: Would like to go to dîner with me?
Oliver: Queen, party of two.
Oliver: Nothing. I'm just--
Felicity: Line forms behind me.
Oliver: Scotch. Neat.
Felicity: Just the water for me, thanks.
Oliver: Are you-- Are toi 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 rendez-vous amoureux, date and a seconde rendez-vous amoureux, date and a third date, and every date, actually, and I've already seen toi shirtless. Multiple times. Shirtless, all the time.
Felicity: Thank you.
Oliver: Thank you.
Oliver: There are still a few things that toi 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, toi stop... seeing people for people. toi see... threats. ou 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. toi 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 toi remember when I told toi 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 toi never loved me, say you--
Oliver: Felicity... Don't ask me to say that I don't l’amour you.
Felicity: I told toi as soon as we talked... It would be over.
