Episode Quotes
Superman: Just happened to be in the neighbourhood?
Batman: Do you have any idea who they are? The Society of Shadows. I've been trailing them for weeks, hoping they'd lead me to Ra's Al Ghul.
Superman: Who?
Batman: A criminal Mastermind. More dangerous than the Joker and Luthor put together.
Superman: All I know is they were breaking the law in my town!
Batman: Leave it to you to charge in with both arms swinging.

Superman: If you were going to operate in Metropolis, you should've filled me in.
Batman: Next time I'll fax my itinerary.

Batman: You said the only thing they took was the Shaman's staff?
Superman: Yes. It's one of the least valuable items. According to Professor Blackwing, it's supposed to have mystique healing powers. Maybe your Mastermind isn't feeling well.
Batman: He's usually in pretty good shape for a guy his age.

Lois: Another day, another Pulitzer...

Ra's Al Ghul: Old age, Superman, it truly is a shipwrecked. One that I have survived more times than I can remember.

Batman: What happened here?
Lois: I'm not sure. Someone attacked me. A woman dressed in black.
Batman: Talia.
Lois: Talia? On a first name basis, are we?

Lois: What do you think she was after?
Batman: Your clothes.
Lois: Excuse me?
Batman: She needed to impersonate you to attract Superman.
Lois: Hah! She's gonna need more than that! Maybe my clothes in a nuclear disaster...

Lois: And I just had it shampooed! Do you know how depressing it is to have to clean up after your assailant?
Batman: I'm sorry.
Lois: Forget it. A little detergent and elbow grease...
Batman: I mean that we're meeting like this.
Lois: Hey I was the one who say goodbye. Though I can't say I haven't had second thoughts. Actually there's been several times when I almost picked up the phone. Maybe you felt the same-- (turns around and realizes Batman got out from the window) way. I gotta get better locks!

Ra's Al Ghul: You are foolish to have come here, detective. Give me the staff!
Batman: I think you've had your workout for today.

Superman: I'm guessing you and that woman Talia had some history.
Batman: Pretty much in line with all my other relationships.

Batman: I have to admit is it was clever using Ra's's devotion to his daughter to stop 'em.
Superman: Well, I thought as long as I couldn't charge him with my both arms swinging, I better use my head. You know, there might be something to this partnership business after all.
Batman: (smiles) Yeah, right...

Cultural References
Ra's Al Ghul: For centuries I've kept myself alive by immersing my body in Lazarus's Pits.
