Episode Quotes
Wonder Woman: Batman, what was that?
Batman: Thermionic gas. Cools to within a few degrees of absolute zero.
Wonder Woman: Why would you have something like that on board?
Batman: I needed to freeze the Gotham River once. Long story.

The Atom: He's bigger then my car now, Katie. Personally I blame you.
Katie: How can it possibly be my fault?
The Atom: Because otherwise it would be my fault. That can't be right-–I'm a professor.

The Atom: I'm going to lay here for a while, Katie. I'm old now, and I get tired.

Batman: Batman to all points. I could use some air support. Since I can't fly. At all. (still falling) Now would be good.

Batman: Where's the Atom?
The Atom: (in Superman's ear) It's getting sweaty in here...

The Atom: Batman, can you hear me? It's a war machine.
Batman: What was your first clue?

The Atom: Amazing. Show (General Eiling) a weapon that destroyed its creators and every other thing it saw and he wants to play with it. What's to stop history from repeating itself right here on Earth?
Superman: We are.
