Carter: Look at Kent Nelson, Courtney. He spends most of his days wandering the streets, searching for the secrets to the universe at the bottom of trash cans.
Courtney: So, Dr. Fate is incapacitated. The Sandman and the Star-Spangled Kid are both dead. You were their leader. What's your excuse? Please don't make me ask another team for help.
Carter: Oh, the kids out there playing hero are hardly a team. They don't know how to lace up their own boots.
Courtney: Well, maybe if you had laced up your boots when Sylvester had asked you to, he might still be alive.
Carter: Don't waste your breath. I have enough guilt to last 20 lifetimes.
