Green Lantern/John Stewart
During the first fight scene between the Jokerz and the JLU, we see that the whips used by the DeeDees are extremely effective against GL's constructs. So why, when confronted with a labyrinth construct, do the DeeDees not slash away with their whips?
During part 1, Bruce Wayne's eyes were blue. In part 2, when we see the older Bruce's eyes, they are brown.
People and events shown here contradict what has been shown for various other WB series, but in fact are internally consistent (sort of) since it's established that what we're seeing here is an alternate timeline, rendering other time travel and crossover stories providing a glimpse of the "real future" irrelevant to what we see here.
Green Lantern: The Green Lanterns have a legend - no one can see the beginning of time. It's a universal law.
Batman: Write (Chronos) a ticket.
Chronos: How could you betray me, Enid? Everything I've done, I've done for you.
Enid: Don't blame this on me. I just wanted you to assert yourself – not destroy the universe!
Static: The miracles of modern medicine – 65 is the new 30.
Static: Wow. Batman playing "good cop."
Green Lantern: Everything's relative...
Batman: Sometimes the old ways are best.
Terry: It's not going to work. You don't know your way around here. Things have changed.
Batman: Are criminals still superstitious and cowardly?
Bruce Wayne: Yup.
Batman: Good enough for me.
Chronos: Skedaddle! Time is money! Actually, "time" is the non-spacial continuum in which events occur linearly, usually in the direction of increased entropy. But the clowns seem to relate better to the "money" thing.
Chronos: Do you know what killed the dinosaurs?
Bonk: Uhh... no, sir.
Chronos: Well, Chucko does, and unless you want to find out firsthand, you go finish off the Justice League.
War Hawk: What are you supposed to do when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders?
John Stewart: Plant your feet.
(John Stewart turns into a white guy)
Hal Jordan: Wha...?
Hal Jordan: Hal Jordan. Another time shift. I'm up to speed. Carry on.
Terry: Okay... I'm starting to get a migraine.
Chucko: (surrounded by dinosaurs) You think I'm scared? I'll be running this dump in a few years! (meteorite hits) Oh fooey...
Chucko: I'm sorry.
Chronos: "I'm sorry," what? Everybody...?
Jokerz: Sorry, Lord Chronos...
Static: Shayera was one cranky pregnant lady. Although to be fair, if I laid an egg that big...
War Hawk: He's kidding, Dad.
Terry: Batman – Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne – Batman. Or...have you met?
Both Bruces: Not now!
Terry: Great. What did they use to call it? Stereo?
Bruce Wayne: Surprised to see me?
Batman: A little. I'm more surprised I've lived so long.
Dee Dee #1: Look, Dee Dee – another Green Lantern.
Dee Dee #2: He's much cuter then the last one we killed, don't you think, Dee Dee?
Ghoul: And that's everything I know!
Bruce Wayne: Everything...?
Ghoul: I wet my bed until I was 14!
Bruce Wayne: Losing my patience...
Bruce Wayne: I can't believe I was ever that green. This is how you interrogate someone.
Ghoul: Hard to believe somebody as stupid as you ever beat the Joker.
Batman: Maybe I'm smarter than I look...
This episode wasn't completed by the ending of YTVs Season 3 airing, so they replaced both parts with "Initiation" and "For the Man who has Everything."
When the Redcoats say "Fire at will", they're looking at the future Batman Beyond Batman, who is played by Will Friedle. Presumably an in-joke - they must want to get rid of the actor as well as Batman.
Previews at the end of this episode are from the upcoming episodes "The Doomsday Sanction" and "Task Force X" - the latter show The Suicide Squad (Deadshot and Captain Boomerang) and Ares' battle robot from "Hawk and Dove".
Other heroes that appear without dialogue: Vibe, Dr. Light, Mr. Terrific, Booster Gold, Stargirl, Gypsy, Supergirl, and Shayera/Hawkgirl.
Phil LaMarr reprises his role as Static from Static Shock but is not credited. Peter Onorati reprises his role as War Hawk from the Batman Beyond episodes starting with "The Call (1)" Will Friedle reprises his role as Terry McGinnis, the future Batman from Batman Beyond. Michael Rosenbaum, Melissa Joan Hart, and Don Harvey reprise their roles as Ghoul, Dee Dee, and Chucko respectively from Return of the Joker. Adam Baldwin, Adam Baldwin, who had previously played Jonah Hex in "The Once and Future Thing: Weird Western Tales (1)", takes on the role of Bonk, previously played by Henry Rollins. Dee Bradley Baker takes on the role of Woof, previously played by Frank Welker in RotJ.
The full title is shown on a single screen this time.
For the first time the pre-credits sequence is nothing but a "Previously" of the previous episode.
The Hand of Destiny
The hand seen at the beginning of time is the Hand of Destiny. In the comics this hand was seen by those who tried to look back to the creation of the multiverse. It has been revealed that the "Hand" belongs to the omnipotent being known as "The Presence." In the comic series Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Anti-Monitor tried to replace his own hand for The Presence's as he tried to remake the multiverse. Other references to the Crisis include the white mass of energy that comes from the sky and erases everything it touches, and the confused colonial soldiers and mammoths that appear in The Colosseum. All of these appeared in the Crisis.
JLU Computer Screen:
The graphics on the JLU's computer screen (as Bruce Wayne analyzes the timeline) are the same as those seen in The Matrix when outsiders read Matrix code.
Chucko: I'll be running this dump in a few years!
This is practically the same line that Gabriel Yulaw says at the end of the movie The One when he is tossed through a portal and stranded in a barren landscape by folks with superior ability to travel through time/space.
Chucko: Laser saber
Chucko's two-bladed red-tinged laser saber is the same as the light saber Darth Maul wields in Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
