    • Flash: You're asking the Fastest Man Alive to slow things down? Won't be easy

    • Flash: Don't you have any lawyers here?
      Male Judge: We solved our lawyer problem a long time ago.

    • Flash: If the ring wasn't lit, you must acquit.

    • Flash: (after Kilowog floats into the court) Looks like we've got a surprise witness. Prosecutor: Surprise witness? He was nowhere near the crime, what kind of witness can he be? Flash: (in a smug voice) A big scary one.

    Allusions (1)

    • Flash: If the ring wasn't lit, you must acquit! Flash's statement is a parody of the late Johnnie Cochran's infamous quote in defending O.J. Simpson as Mr. Simpson's trial lawyer in the 1994 case of Mr. Simpson's alleged murder of Nicole Brown Simpson: "If the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit!"
