Several years previously, Batman and the other adult heroes assemble at their orbital headquarters to deal with an oncoming meteor. Batman, Aquaman, and Green Arrow bring their respective sidekicks Robin, Aqualad, and Speedy along, but they are left to their own devices. Robin and Aqualad are soon arguing and their mentors break up the fight. Batman decides to teach them teamwork and discipline by training them in a combat simulator that projects lifelike hardlight villains. After they defeat the first wave of villains despite their differences, Speedy suggests they team up in the future. Robin and Aqualad both disagree but jokingly agree that whoever defeats the most villains will be their leader. They finally triumph and Robin wins, and he then says that they should become a team now that he'd be the leader...

Episode Quotes
Young Robin: But if this team's going to take on real villains, we're going to need a lot more practice.
Young Aqualad: Team? I thought you said that was a dumb idea
Young Robin: That's before I became leader.

Aqualad: We're tired of being treated like second-class superheroes.
Green Arrow: I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. I've always treated Speedy well. (thinking back) Quick, retrieve my bow from that crocodile pit!

Batman: Our young wards will be investigating a completely uninhabited island... while we'll be be infiltrating Ra's al Ghul's secret headquarters.
Aquaman: Impressive ploy, old chum. Wouldn't you say, Arrow?
Green Arrow: I would, if I understood it. Seriously, my head hurts.

Robin: Hello, Talia. I see you're still as evil as your power-mad father.
Aquaman: Can we stop flirting and just fight?

Ra's al Ghul: Ubu, grind them into fertilizer.
Speedy: Did he say... fertilizer?
Aqualad: Relax, Speedy. he just said that to scare us.
Speedy: Well, by golly, it's working.

Aquaman: I think I shall call this adventure, "The Time Batman Sent Us to the Wrong Island."

Talia: Oh, Robin.
Robin: Yes, Talia?
Talia: If I ever see you again, you're a dead man.
Aqualad: Wow. That was brutal.
Speedy: Jeepers. I'll say.
Robin: Can we just get moving?

Ra's al Ghul: Behold, a Garden of Eden on Earth.
Batman: Funny. All I see is a big weed that needs to be whacked.

Aquaman: Congratulations, lad. All of Atlantis shall know of your heroics. And I shall call this adventure...
Aqualad: "The Time Aqualad Finally Got Some Well-deserved Credit"?
Aquaman: Uh... okay.
