- For the eponymous character, see Laurel Lance (Earth-2).
- "I was being a hero. I was the D.A., I got Oliver out of prison, and I was the only one who figured out that his little sister was basically the devil, and they still turned on me."
"So, what, you think you deserve a medal for trying to be good for five seconds? Redemption isn't a destination. It's a journey. I wasted years running away from all the bad things that I had done because I didn't want to face the pain that I had caused because I didn't want to be that person. And then I realized the only way to stop being that person was to come home and own up to the things that I had done, and, yeah, it was painful, and it took a really long time. But it was the only way to become someone else, someone better than who I was."
