    • Hal: Yes! (laughs) Yes! Woo!
      Carol: Let's keep the commentary to vehicle-specific, shall we, Jordan?
      Hal: I was, boss. That was me expressing my professional opinion of the prototype's acceleration.
      Carol: Someone at the FAA is going to read this transcript, Hal, so words might help.
      Hal: Of course, Carol. My apologies. Plane go fast. Very fast. Plane good.

    • Hal: And Kilowog! Hey, buddy! What's going on?
      Kilowog: You'll find out soon enough Jordan. Just keep it professional. And definitely don't go looking for me to bail you out this time.
      Hal: Did I leave the toilet seat up or something?

    • Appa Ali Apsa: Let me remind the Green Lantern of Earth that the Guardians are not on trial here. He is.
      Ganthet: Appa Ali Apsa, it has been an eventful session. Perhaps a period of refreshment is required. Or as our earthman would say... a coffee break.

    • Hal: Good call, Ganthet. Another minute and I might've said something...
      Kilowog: Incredibly stupid? Yeah, I think that ship sailed a long time ago, Jordan.

    • Kilowog: Kinda figured you'd turn up here, hotshot. Just your style. You borrow the ship. Rush into danger. Catch the killer. Save the day. Big hero.
      Hal: You forgot get the girl. There's probably a girl somewhere in this.

    • Kilowog: That must be the AI nav-computer.
      Hal: Hello... Aya. We're your new best friends, Hal and Kilowog. We want to learn how to fly you.
      Kilowog: AI does not spell Aya, it spells Ayee.
      Hal: But Aya is a pretty name. A pretty name for a pretty girl.
      Kilowog: Don't you ever stop?

    • Kilowog: Wow. Frontier space.
      Hal: I wonder what the odds are for me making my dinner with Carol.
      Kilowog: A billion light years from home and that's what you're thinkin'? You must've really lost it for this girl.
      Hal: Uh, no.

    • Hal: I'll draw their fire while you get the comedian back to the interceptor.
      Kilowog: Yeah, I had a feelin' that was comin'. What do you want written on your tombstone?
      Hal: "Spent the rest of his long life making sure his ring was charged."

    • Guy Gardner

      Guy Gardner first appeared in Green Lantern (vol. 2) #59 (March 1968), and was created by John Broome and Gil Kane. When Abin Sur, the Green Lantern of Earth's space sector, crashed on Earth, Hal Jordan was closer and thus Abin Sur chose him as his successor. Gardner was designated Earth's backup Green Lantern. After a power battery exploded, he received brain damage and became a much more macho-aggressive figure. He later used Sinestro's yellow power ring, and then he gained the power to generate physical weapons from his own body. He eventually rejoined the Green Lantern Corps and serves as an honored member.

    • Injoke: McDuffie's Bar is named after the late DC comic book writer Dwayne McDuffie.

    • The reference to a Green Lantern with a red shirt and a cape is to the Golden Age Green Lantern, Alan Scott, who wore just such a costume and wielded a magical power ring on his left hand that was vulnerable to wood.

    • Injoke: Steam Lantern's real name of Gil Broome is taken from the creators of the Silver Age Lantern, Gil Kane and John Broome.
