Episode Quotes
Silver Age Blue Beetle: The B.B. Gun fires a...
Batman: ...high-intensity pan-chromatic disorientation strobe. Nice. But what do you do about the...?
(opponents start puking)
Silver Age Blue Beetle: Nausea? Haven't quite licked that yet.

Silver Age Blue Beetle: I used to carry knock-out pellets. They kept exploding on my belt.
Batman: Tell me about it. Cost me a fortune to improve the casings.

Silver Age Blue Beetle: People just don't appreciate the time and expense that goes into this high-tech gear. They'd rather see fisticuffs.
Batman: True. Uppercuts and bodyslams are no substitute for having the proper tools when it comes to crimefighting. But they are a whole lot more fun.

Jaime: With the life ebbing from his body, the alien orders his power ring to search the planet for a worthy successor. The ring's energy searches the globe until it finds a man without fear, and a new hero is chosen.
Paco: Wow, dude. That's amazing... ly stupid. That's the best you could come up with for the secret origin of the Green Lantern? Give me a break.
Jaime: What? What's wrong with my story?
Paco: First of all, a dude without fear is a serious mental condition. And secondly, how does a ring chose someone?
Jaime: I don't know, it just does!

Dr. Polaris: Fools! Your bullets are useless against my awesome power to repel.
Batman: You might try a new deodorant.

Jaime / Blue Beetle: Okay, smarty-armor. If there were, say, a secret lair under here, what would be the quickest way to... whoa!

Silver Age Blue Beetle: Robotics experts. A table's never just a table with you guys, is it?

Silver Age Blue Beetle: Looks like he had a contingency plan.
Batman: Then it's a good thing we have our own.
Silver Age Blue Beetle: Hit robots, make fall down?
Batman: That's the one.

Jaime / Blue Beetle: I wish Batman would've told me all this.
"Ted Kord": Batman. He's an old chum of mine. Don't take it personally. He' s not much of a talker, as I recall.
Jaime / Blue Beetle: Tell me about it. Mostly he just grunts.

Batman: Go! Don't wait for me!
Jaime / Blue Beetle: Oh, sure, let me carry the megalomaniac. My hands are free.

Batman: But being chosen doesn't make you a hero. What you choose does.
