Dialogue edit

Bruno: Get Mr. Mayor and his better half out of here before we get in trouble from the man upstairs.
Intergang Member: Didn't know you was a believer, boss.
Bruno: That ain't the man upstairs I'm talking about.

Cyborg: Operating budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Utilities are above what the UN cleared for funding, guys.
Batman: I'll handle it. Move on, Cyborg.
Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman merchandise did very well this year. I can step up when the Wayne Foundation falls short.
Batman: You're kidding, right?

Dan: Kidnapping with advanced weapons. Got to be Intergang. They took out half the reserve with their tech weapons last week.
Maggie: Makes you nostalgic for assault rifles.

John: It's definitely from Apokolips. But it's been bonded with Earth-based tri-formulite at an atomic level. The combination makes this stronger.
Silas: Incredible! That means it's even stronger than you, Victor.
Cyborg: Always got an encouraging word, huh, Dad?

Cat: I had a suspicion something was up when you stopped calling him "Smallville".
Lois: I did?
Cat: Sweetie, the women here notice everything about tall, handsome men. And the only competition in this place is Steve Lombard, and he makes me feel like I need to shower.
Steve: Hello ladies, did someone mention the Stevenator?
Cat: Yes, I think it was human resources.

Wonder Woman: Clark, flank me!
Superman: Seriously, Diana. We need to use code names in the field.
Wonder Woman: You just called me "Diana".
Superman: But that's what you want to be called.
Wonder Woman: You want to be called Superman? Sounds like even your ego is super strong.
Superman: I just don't need my real name public. Besides... I like Superman.
Wonder Woman: Because "Wonder Man" sounds like we're married?
Superman: No, because she [Lois] gave it to me.

Wonder Woman: [Referring to Lois] Funny how you use her actual name, but don't allow her to know yours.
Superman: It's a complicated relationship...kind of like how ours was.
Wonder Woman: It was nice for a while.
Superman: Yes, it was.
[Brief pause]
Wonder Woman: It's just as well. I wasn't very good at playing this masquerade of yours.

Batman: I have a meeting with the headmaster at Damian's boarding school.
Green Lantern: No way! Batman has a parent-teacher conference? That's great.
The Flash: Are you in the PTA too? Tell me you're in the PTA. [Puts on a gravelly voice] I'm Batman. We need more chaperones for homecoming. Who has to be convinced to sign up? Hahaha... [Batman gives him a death glare] I'm just joking. I think that's great. [Tries to hide behind a piece of paper] Is he still glaring at me?

Cyborg: We could just push the meeting back to that evening.
The Flash: Ah, can't. I've got rehearsal dinner that night.
Martian Manhunter: [Looks at Wonder Woman] Is he in a play?
Batman: He's getting married. Somehow.
The Flash: Yup, married the next day. Limos, banquet hall, DJ, the whole shebang. [Slight pause] Just the immediate family, you understand.

Ma: Well, you wouldn't be the first young lady to break his heart.
Clark: TMI, Ma!
Lois: Oh, now, we're getting to the good stuff.
Ma: Well, first there was Lana, lovely girl, lived next door. She'd come over once in a while, not... Not like Pete Ross. I mean, he was there every day.
Pa: I always wondered about that boy.

Ma: Then there was the girl on the swim team. Laurel, Laura... Um...
Pa: Lori. Lori Lemaris. I remember her. She was quite a catch.
Clark: Pa!
Ma: Clark's right. Maybe we shouldn't talk about her. I am serving halibut.
