Joker has captured Batman and tied him to a giant spit. He then explains that he is holding a celebrity roast and Batman is the guest of honor. Gorilla Grodd steps up first and he stumbles through his comedy routine. Mr. Freeze tries punning without success, and Solomon Grundy is unintelligible as always. Finally the Joker brings in comedian Jeffrey Ross, who apologizes to Batman for being forced to roast him. The villains are less than amused at first but finally catches on as he taunts Robin. Batman frees himself with a hidden lockpick while the villains are distracted laughing. Once he’s loose, the villains run in terror but Batman knocks most of them out. Jeffrey Ross knocks out Joker and suggests that he might fight crime, but Batman recommends that he stick to comedy...

Episode Quotes
Mr. Freeze: Mr. Freeze at a roast. Who would have "thawed" it? Of all the heroes out there, I only have "ice" for you, Batman.

Joker: You're dropping more bombs than the Batplane did on my last hideout, Grundy.

Batman: Sorry to interrupt, Mr. Ross. But I've got a few punchlines of my own I'd like to try out. Penguin, they should call you The Nail, because you're always getting pounded by the Hammers of Justice. I try not to hit your good side, Two-Face, but you don't have one. Riddler, the answer to all your riddles is this. (punches him)

Martian Manhunter: Gentlemen, I'm J'onn J'onzz. Welcome to Justice League International headquarters.
Golden Age Flash: Justice League International? You said it was the other Justice League. The good one.
Dr. Mid-Nite: I must have read the invitation wrong.
Starman: Does that mean Superman won't be here? Superman's the only reason I came.

Martian Manhunter: No one's talking to each other. Ice, why don't you try mingling?
Ice: But I don't have to go to the bathroom.

Guy Gardner: So that's the original Green Lantern? His costume designer must have been color-blind. Only thing we can learn from these geezers is how to add more fiber to our diets.
Ice: They do smell nice, though. Like mothballs and menthol rub.

Ra's al Ghul: You've had quite an exhausting night, Detective. I hope you found your little nap refreshing.
Batman: I never get tired of foiling your twisted schemes, Ra's.

Guy Gardner: Mind your own business, Gramps.
Aquaman: Hey, let's all share a story. I'll start. I'll call this tale, "Please Stop Fighting. It's Getting Awkward."

Blue Beetle: So, uh, who gets to make the big entrance quip?
Aquaman: After you, sir. Age before beauty.
Wildcat: Well, thanks, fishface. All right, punks, the party's over...
Aquaman: That's right! Your ecological incursion ends here, Ra's al Ghul! Ha-ha!

Dr. Mid-Nite: Lights out, creep!
Aquaman: That's the right prescription, Doctor.

Batman: I see I missed quite the party.
Martian Manhunter: Yes, my little soiree was just the thing they needed. It seems different generations can bond over a common desire.
Batman: Justice?
Martian Manhunter: Pie.
