  • Quotes

    • Steam Lantern: We named it "hardtofindium" because it's really, really...
      Hal: Yeah, I get it. So, you're basically wearing a nuclear reactor you cobble together with chicken wire and string?

    • Steam Lantern: Top floor, Mr. Jordan. Topcoats, top hats, various dry sundries, and the gateway to your universe.

    • Duke Nigel: Can you forgive me in the short bit we have left?
      Steam Lantern: Of course.
      Catherine: Time for one last tea, then?
      Duke Nigel: Quite.
      Hal: Whoa whoa. There's no time for tea now.

    • Steam Lantern: For the best then. I don't think I want to live on a world without sunrise.
      Catherine: Me, neither. How would we know when it was time for tea?
      Hal: Oh, enough with the stiff-upper-lippery. No one is going to die on my watch.

  • Notes

    • 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.

    • This episode was originally scheduled to premiere in the U.S on 10/13/2012, but was preempted at the last minute by Cartoon Network and held back until 2013.
