Justice League Unlimited: This Little Piggy

The witch Circe, paroled from Tartarus (the Greek Hell) turns Wonder Woman into a pig. Batman and Zatanna join forces to save Wonder Woman from a fate worse then death, and they get help from a most unusual source to do it.

Batman and Wonder Woman are at the Iceberg Lounge in Gotham, waiting for Intergang to pick up the Rosetta Stone. Wonder Woman suggests Batman might consider dating but he points out all the reasons that's a bad idea. They hear an alarm and drop to investigate the only woman breaking in. She transforms a crowbar into a snake and reveals that she's the sorceress Circe. Wonder Woman reveals that Hippolyta condemned Circe to the pit because she turned mortals into animals. The heroes charge but Circe throws them back and then ensnares Wonder Woman in a stone hand. Circe then casts a spell on her as Batman looks on in horror...

Episode Quotes
Batman: Patience, Princess. Intergang moves in mysterious ways.
Wonder Woman: Tell me about it. What use could they possibly have for the Rosetta Stone?
Batman: We'll find out soon enough. And in the mean time...
Wonder Woman: I know. Patience.

Wonder Woman: Don't you ever wish you were down there?
Batman: I'm down there all I need to be.
Wonder Woman: Yes, but it's just a job to you. I'm talking about going down there and having some fun. Maybe... maybe with someone special. No. No dating for the Batman. Might cut into your brooding time.
Batman: One. Dating within the team always leads to disaster. Two. You're a prince from a society of immortal warriors, I'm a rich kid with issues. Lots of issues. And three, if my enemies knew I had someone special, they wouldn't rest until they'd gotten to me, through her.
(Wonder Woman crushes a stone)
Wonder Woman: Next?

Zatanna: We could call in one of the other League magicians. Dr. Fate, maybe...
Batman: No! I mean, let's keep this between us.
Zatanna: But why? If there's a chance to help Diana, shouldn't we tell everyone and that... oh, wait, wait... you and her, are you two...?
Batman: Just good friends.
Zatanna: No, you and I are just good friends. There's something more between you and Diana.
Batman: Well, maybe there was.

B'wana Beast: B'wana Beast. How ya doin'?
Zatanna: My legs are fine. As is the rest of me. Up here.
B'wana Beast: Whoah, she's got the fire of a cheetah in her. Grr.
Zatanna: (to Batman) Why are you doing this to me?

Themis: You were Circe's cell mate, weren't you?
Medusa: C-Girl and me did some time together back in the Pit of Eternal Torment. That's where they hang you by your ankles and weasels come to eat your fingers each night. They grow back the next day, but trust me--it gets old real quick.

Themis: Thank you, Medusa. And know that you've earned 300 years off your sentence.
Medusa: Freedom in 4010--ring-a-ding-ding.

Circe: Thank you, thank you. You've all been so kind to me tonight. You know, my cousins the Sirens never thought I could sing. Really! They thought they were all bad with their "Charm the Sailors" routine. But I'm showing them, aren't I? (Circe glares - everyone applauds) Oh thank you! I love you all! Are there any requests?
Zatanna: Selbat ekirts ecric!
Circe: I'm not sure I know that one...

Circe: You're both beginning to remind me of Sisphysus after a hard day pushing his boulder up a mountain. But me, I could keep this up all night.

Zatanna: Is there anything you can't do?
Batman: There's one thing I've never been very good at-–saying thank you.
