1x18 - “The life that I’m leading for myself right now doesn’t leave much room for an actual life…and I don’t need one.” “That’s a really bleak future to spend..with no one.”

2x06 - “Because of the life that I lead, I just think that it’s better to not be with someone that I could really care about.” “Well, I think you deserve better than her.”

2x14 - “You’ll always be my girl, Felicity.”

2x21 - “You deserve someone better, someone who can harness that light that’s still inside of you.”

2x23 - “He took the wrong woman…I love you.”

Felicity will always be his girl and THE girl. He just needs some time to realize the depths of his feelings for her.
