Episode Quotes
Batman: You're looking at the next 10 to 15 years in Arkham Asylum, Hellgrammite.
Hellgrammite: I'm never going back to that roach motel, Batman.

Batman: Are you just going to watch, or could I get a little help here, Creeper?
Creeper: You got it, pal. Batman, Batman, he's our man. If that really totally disgusting freakishly deformed abomination can't beat him, no one can! Yay, Batman!
Batman: Not what I had in mind. Let's go.
Creeper: Oh, I'd love to. But I have group therapy in 15 minutes. And the other psychotics just hate it when I'm late.

Fire: Aye, time paradoxes give me a headache.
Ice: The key is to just nod and not think about them.

Booster Gold: Uh, I'm from the future. So how come I didn't know about this?
Rip Hunter: Cause you're just a time traveler, kid. I'm the Time Master.
Blue Beetle: Ohhh, no he didn't!

Guy Gardner: I'll go with Tora, cause, you know, the kid needs someone to watch her back.
Fire: Make sure that's all you are watching.

Ice: Look, cavemen! I wonder if we'll see any dinosaurs?
Guy Gardner: Where'd you go to school? Dinosaurs and men didn't exist in the same time period. (Ice looks disappointed) But, hey, anything's possible, right?

Pirate Batman: I like the cut of your jib, mateys. I'd be honored if you two would become permanent members of me crew.
Blue Beetle: Ha! Didn't even know I had a jib.

Rip Hunter: Time isn't linear. It's simultaneous. Events in the future create the present as much as events in the past do.
Fire: Ah, now I've really got a headache.
Ice: Not me.

Ice: What is this place?
Announcement: You have made a terrible mistake in coming here.
Blue Beetle: And we're walking toward the loud evil voice because?
Booster Gold: We're incredibly heroic. Or incredibly dumb.

Cultural References
Creeper: Who's on first?

Abbott & Costello's classic routine, "Who's on first?" features them discussing a baseball team where the players have confusing names such as Who, What, I Don't Know, Because, and so on. Thus, the first baseman is Who, leading to the question/statement, "Who's on first?" Abbott makes the statement, and Costello thinks he's asking a question and doesn't know the answer. Costello says "I don't know" and Abbott thinks he's referring to the third baseman, and so on.

Creeper: Neuman!

On Seinfeld, Jerry often addresses his neighbor and arch-nemesis Neuman by greeting him with an emphatic "Hello, Neuman!" whenever they meet.

Creeper: That's what she said!

The popular phrase has been around for centuries in one form or another, but the current version was first used in Wayne's World (1992). It has since become a trademark phrase of Michael Scott on the TV series The Office.

Guy Gardner: Bring it on, Flintstone!

The Flintstones is an animated series that premiered in 1960 and features the exploits of Fred Flintstone and his modern stone age family, as well as his best friend Barney and his wife Betty. The show was the most popular prime-time animated feature in television history until The Simpsons came out.

Aquaman: Friends, Romans, countrymen, I am Aquaman.

Aquaman quotes from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene 2, Page 4, Antony's eulogy to Caesar.
