Episode Notes
This episode shows the first look at the new Justice League.

They originally intended to have Bruce Wayne over Oliver Queen but because of Batman Begins they couldn't make the plot work.

Wonder Woman was not added because a movie is being made and the producers would not give up the rights.

Kyle Gallner, Alan Ritchson and Lee Thompson Young reprise their roles as Bart Allen, Arthur Curry and Victor Stone, respectively.

Episode Quotes
Bart Allen: Still too slow, Stretch.
Clark: Bart.

Chloe: He got away from you? I thought you were the fastest man alive.
Clark: Whoever he was, he saved your life, which is more than I can say.
Chloe: Oh, come on, Clark, it wasn't your fault. I mean, even with all your powers, you can't be everywhere at once.

Bart Allen: I mean, back then, I needed a super kick in the butt and you laid it on me and ever since then, there's been no more stealing for this gringo, I swear.
Clark: Am I really supposed to just buy that?
Bart Allen: Well, I could squirt out some tears if that'll help.
Clark: No, but the truth might.

Lois: You know, what I had in mind is gonna take a little longer than five minutes.
Oliver Queen: Rain check?
Lois: Sure. I'll just put it next to the rest of the umbrellas you keep handing me.
Oliver Queen: Lois...
Lois: I mean, is it just me or is this relationship all interruptus and no coitus? You're always running off just when things start getting interesting and-and I like being interested... a lot.

Lex: Whoever's responsible has the ability to move faster than a speeding bullet. Such a unique individual would make an interesting test subject to add to 33.1. Don't you think?
Lionel: What do you plan to do?
Lex: Protect our investment.

Bart Allen: Look, I'm sorry I can't tell you all my secrets, Clark. Okay? I thought a guy like you would understand that.

Lois: I know, it's just a vacation but...
Chloe: What? Vacation? No, vacation is Palm Springs. Monte Carlo is a fairy tale.
Lois: Yeah, hopefully without Prince Charming having a disappearing act every five minutes.
Chloe: (pulling out some lingerie) Um, I think you'll be keeping his full attention, Lois.

Clark: Hey, Chloe...
Lois: God, Smallville! Learn how to knock. What if I'd been naked? Ew!

Clark: (to Chloe) Maybe all keeping secrets does sometimes is force you to lie to people you care about.

Clark: I saw his phone records, I know he's working for you.
Oliver Queen: Not for me, working with me. There's a difference.

Clark: Why didn't you tell me what you were up to?
Oliver Queen: Clark, do you check in with me every time you run off to save the world? That's right, you know, for a second there I forgot you like to just wait for trouble to show up on your doorstep.
Clark: That's not true.
Oliver Queen: Then, why haven't you done anything to stop 33.1?
Clark: I was busy with another problem.
Oliver Queen: Well, what could b more urgent than Lex Luthor developing an army of superfreaks, Clark? That's what he's doing. He's starting a war.

Lex: I know you. You've stolen from me before.
Bart Allen: I want a lawyer.
Lex: And, I want a ponytail! Disappointment abounds.

Clark: What about your girlfriend? Katherine?
Arthur Curry: Dude, don't even go there.
Victor Stone: She gave it her best shot. But, with all this hardware in me...
Clark: I'm sorry, Victor.
Victor Stone: Ollie found me, I was living on the streets. He gave me a warm meal, roof over my head... and a reason to go on living.
Oliver Queen: Did he just say something nice about me?
Arthur Curry: Maybe he's starting to rust?
Clark: AC, how'd you fall into all this?
Arthur Curry: I got into a little trouble sinking a whaler off the coast of Japan.
Victor Stone: A little trouble? That's what you gonna go with? Ollie had to save your scaly butt from getting filleted.
Arthur Curry: I would've gotten out of it.
Oliver Queen: Oh, really? Before or after they packed you into a thousand little tin cans?
Victor Stone: Well, at least he would've been dolphin safe.
Arthur Curry: Fish jokes. It's all I ever get are fish jokes.

Clark: (on Bart) And, how exactly did you get him involved in this? He's never been much of a team player.
Oliver Queen: Looks like you two have something in common, huh?

Oliver Queen: Where's Clark?
Chloe: He went to rescue Bart.
Oliver Queen: He told you about Bart?
Chloe: We trust each other, Clark tells me everything. Well... almost everything. I did have to figure out about your green leather fetish on my lonesome. Don't worry, I didn't say anything to Lois although you might wanna consider...
Oliver Queen: Let's just stick to the-the main plot there, sidekick.

Chloe: Where are Victor and AC?
Victor Stone: Guess we're not that good at the whole secret part of this yet.

Green Arrow You make one hell of a can opener.
Cyborg: You look good on a bag of green beans.

Green Arrow: Green Arrow to Watchtower, Boy Scout's outta the woods.
Clark: Boy Scout?
Green Arrow: Maybe if you hadn't run out all half-cocked, you could've picked your own codename. You don't wanna play for the team, that's fine. You be smart about it.
Clark: Point taken. Where's Bart?
Green Arrow: Impulse. He didn't get to pick his own codename, either.

Cyborg: Cyborg to Aquaman, where the hell are you, fishstick?
Aquaman: (opens the door) Dude, what took you so long?
Cyborg: Thanks but please, put-put a shirt on.
Aquaman: I swim faster when I'm naked.
Cyborg: I bet you do.
Aquaman: You're lucky I still have my pants on.

Lex: You...
Green Arrow: You remember. I'm touched.
Lex: Well, it's a little hard to forget. Last time we met, you put an arrow in my chest.
Green Arrow: You put a bullet in mine. Bygones?
Lex: Go to hell.
Green Arrow: You first.

Oliver Queen: It's not that simple.
Lois: Nothing with you ever is. You're like two completely different people. There's the charming, romantic guy that I fell in love with and then there's this other guy who can't stick around in one place long enough to see what he's missing.
Oliver Queen: Ever since my parents died, I've jumped around from city to city, from continent to continent and in all those years, not once have I regretted leaving any one. But, then, I met you.

Oliver Queen: Some day, I can explain why.
Lois: Don't expect me to be waiting around for that when you get back.
Oliver Queen: I'm not coming back, Lois. At least not anytime soon.

Oliver Queen: This is the-the moment, right? The moment that I'm gonna regret for the rest of my life, isn't it?
Lois: Yes.

Lex: If terrorists like Green Arrow are recruiting people with abilities, the only way to protect freedom and democracy is to fight fire with fire.
Lionel: Freedom and democracy? Well, well, I hadn't realised your goals were quite so lofty.
Lex: Well, there's a lot that escapes your attention in your declining years, Dad, but not mine.

Lex: However, several guards describe one of Green Arrow's men as someone that sounded remarkably like Clark Kent.
Lionel: Clark? Impossible.
Lex: A word that always seems to pop up when talking about him, doesn't it?
Lionel: Lex, it was not Clark.
Lex: How can you be so sure?!
Lionel: Because I was having dinner with him last night when all this happened. Martha made pot roast with new potatoes, tiny, little baby carrots, it was delicious. Clark... Clark had three helpings. Don't worry, Son, you still have plenty of enemies out there, plotting your downfall.

Clark: Impulse, Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Arrow, what do you guys call your team?
Bart Allen: I don't know! I've been thinking, you know, we need something cool. Something like, uh, like, uh...
Oliver Queen: I was thinking about something with the word 'justice' in it. After all, that's what Lex is gonna get a big dose of.

Oliver Queen: This isn't the end of the story, Clark. This is just the beginning. Chloe. (leaving the barn) Come on, boys. Let's go save the world.

Chloe: You know, you have some pretty amazing friends, Clark Kent.
Clark: Yeah, I do.
