Episode Quotes
Batman: J'onn, we're in trouble!
J'onn: Are you asking for help?
Batman: Yes!
J'onn: You never ask for help.

Elongated Man: Don't be modest, kid. I don't even think Superman could have done a better job... (Superman arrives) ...we were just talking about you!

Captain Marvel: You're my biggest fan.
Superman: Excuse me?
Captain Marvel: I'm--I mean I'm your biggest fan. Sorry, sir - it's uh, it's a little overwhelming meeting you.

Batman: You were a little hard on the boy scout, don't you think?
Superman: I thought I was the boy scout?
Batman: I did too, 'til I met Captain Marvel.

Batman: What do these guys want, anyway?
Superman: To take over the world... or rob banks. I forget.

Superman: But back to Captain Marvel. Why are you...why is everyone defending him?
Batman: We like him. He's... sunny.

Superman: I never knew you had such a sentimental streak, Lex.
Lex Luthor: Oh, there's so much about me you don't know, Superman.

Captain Marvel: My whole life, I've looked up to the League. You were my heroes. Every one of you. (to Superman) And you, you were more than a hero. I idolized you. I wanted to be you. Whenever I was out there, facing down the bad guys, I'd think, "What would Superman do?" Now I know. I believe in fair play. I believe in taking people at their word and giving them the benefit of the doubt. Back home, I've come up against my share of pretty nasty bad guys, but I never had to act the way they did to win a fight. I always found another way. I guess I'm saying I like being a hero. A symbol. And that's why I'm... quitting the Justice League. You don't act like heroes anymore.

Episode Goofs
When Captain Marvel addresses the founding members at the end, there is a convenient gap between Flash and Superman so he can stand.

However, when he walks away, the gap closes up and Flash and Superman are instantly sitting next to each other.
