When Oliver's membership into an exclusive club involves an initiation prank featuring a fake newspaper revealing (all be it unintentionally) that Oliver Queen and Roy Harper are really Green Arrow and Speedy, the two heroes believe it's a real newspaper. Revealing their identities to the chief of police is met with laughter, at the chief believes it's just Oliver playing a practical joke.

When robbers make a get away, the chief calls Oliver and invites him to watch the real Green Arrow in person. Having to show up as Oliver in a Green Arrow costume, Oliver and Roy use a series of gimmicked arrows to make it appear as though Green Arrow is ambushing the crooks and leaves just as they are rounded up, protecting Oliver's secret identity by verifying to everyone that Oliver is just playing a joke.
