Clark Kent/Kal-El of Krypton
Alexander ('Lex') Joseph Luthor
Martha Clark Kent
Oliver Queen/Green Arrow
When the team blew up the Ridge Facility didn't they think that the meteorite rocks inside could disperse in the area and create some new mutants?
At the start of the episode, we can see the red jumper figure (Bart) standing behind Clark before the super speed sound is heard; Clark super speeds to the other side of the basketball court to catch up to the red jumper figure but before he can grab him the red jumper figure runs off around the corner amazingly fast. Clark then stops knowing he won't be able to catch him and the camera angle spins around to see Clarks face, in the bottom left hand corner of the screen we can see a red jumper figure standing behind him, (we know it can't be one of the basketball players because they are all wearing dark colors and aren't standing that close behind Clark) then a couple of seconds later the super speed sound is heard but too late because we can see a glimpse of a red jumper in the bottom left corner already standing behind Clark.
When Lois comes to Oliver's, ready to travel to Monte Carlo, she is dragging a large suitcase with wheels. When she leaves, after they break up, you hear her footsteps and then the elevator opens, but you don't hear her stop to get her luggage, or the sound of the wheels rolling across the floor. Would she just leave all of her new clothes behind?
During Lois and Oliver's scene towards the end of the episode Lois leans in left to kiss him. However when the shot changes to behind her she is leaning right.
Chloe confirms that everyone is out of the building, so who carried all the unconscious people out?
On the equipment transfer requisition that Chloe hands Clark, "shielding" is misspelled as "sheilding" and "transferred" is misspelled as "transfered."

Lois: I know it's just a vacation but...
Chloe: What? Vacation? No vacation is Palm Springs, Monte Carlo is a fairytale.
Lois: Yeah, hopefully without Prince Charming having a disappearing act every five minutes.
Chloe: (pulls out stylish green lingerie) Umm I think you'll be keeping his full attention, Lois.
Lois: Yeah, I better, it's not like I go Victoria Secret for anybody. What do you think though? Should I have gone with the black lace?
Chloe: No, something tells me green is definitely his color.
Chloe: Well, at least we got Bart out before Lex ran him into an early grave.
Bart: Oh come on, no worries I had plenty of juice left.
Victor: Could've fooled me, the way you cleaned out Mama Kents' fridge.
Bart: Yeah, that's because I like to stay fueled up... (superspeeds next to Chloe) just in case I need to spring in action.
Chloe: I still have a boyfriend.
Bart: Yeah, well a man can dream can't he?
Arthur: Now you know why we call him Impulse.
Bart: (with a feast in front of him) God, Mrs. K, thank you so much this was so good.
Martha: Where do you put it all? You eat more than Clark and he's twice your size.
Bart: Yeah, well you know I burn a lot of calories.
Clark: Last time you blew through town, you stole my dad's wallet, then swiped a priceless artifact from Lex. You nearly got yourself killed.
Bart: Yeah, yeah, those were the days, huh?
Lois: I mean, is it just me, or is this relationship all interruptus and no coitus?
Lionel: I need to talk to you. You alone?
Lex: Just me and my shadow, Dad.
Clark: You can cut the act. I know about LuthorCorp, and the break-in by someone who's as fast as me.
Bart: Yeah, faster, actually.
Clark: What about call history, can you pull up a record?
Chloe: Legally? Absolutely not.
Victor: Guess we're not that good at the whole secret part of this yet.
Chloe: Yeah, but you're great at getting caught by the villain.
Victor: Nice. But please, put a shirt on.
Arthur: I swim faster when I'm naked.
Victor: I bet you do.
Arthur: You're lucky I still got my pants on.
Oliver: I never wanted to hurt you.
Lois: Well you finally got around to it anyway, didn't you?
Clark: Impulse, Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Arrow. What do you call your team?
Bart: I don't know, I've been thinking, you know, we need something cool, we need something like…
Oliver: I was thinking something with the word "Justice" in it. After all, that's what Lex is going to get a big dose of.
Oliver: You'd make one hell of a can opener.
Victor: You'd look good on a bag of green beans.
Lex: The security footage from the Ridge Facility was destroyed. However, several guards describe one of Green Arrow's men as someone that sounded remarkably like Clark Kent.
Lionel: Clark? Impossible.
Lex: A word that always seem to pop when talking about him, doesn't it?
Lionel: Lex, it was not Clark.
Lex: How can you be so sure?
Lionel: Because I was having dinner with him last night when all this happened. Martha made pot roast with new potatoes and tiny little baby carrots. It was delicious. Clark… Clark had three helpings. Don't worry, son. You still have plenty of enemies out there plotting your downfall.
Green Arrow: You remember. I'm touched.
Lex: Well, it's a little hard to forget. Last time we met, you put an arrow in my chest.
Green Arrow: You put a bullet in mine. Bygones?
Lex: Go to hell.
Green Arrow: You first.
Oliver: Green Arrow to Watchtower. "Boy Scout's" out of the woods.
Clark: Boy Scout?
Oliver: If you hadn't ran off all half-cocked, you could have picked your own code name. You don't want to play for the team, that's fine. You'd be smart about it.
Clark: Point taken. Where's Bart?
Oliver: "Impulse." He didn't get to pick his own code name, either.
Lex: Good morning, Sunshine. I know you. You've stolen from me before.
Bart: I want a lawyer.
Lex: And I want a ponytail. Disappointment abounds. Who do you work for?
Bart: What you see is what you get there, Goldilocks.
Lex: You're a low-level thief. Swiping corporate data isn't your style. Now, tell me who you're working for and this won't have to get unpleasant.
Bart: All right. All right. I work for a guy called Mr. Kiss-My-Butt. Would you like me to introduce you?
Victor: Ollie found me I was living on the streets. He gave me a warm meal, roof over my head... and a reason to go on living.
Oliver: Did he just say something nice about me?
Arthur: Maybe he's starting to rust.
Clark: A.C., how did you fall into all this?
Arthur: Got into a little trouble sinking a whaler off the coast of Japan.
Victor: A little trouble? That's what you're gonna go with? Ollie had to save your scaly butt from getting filleted.
Arthur: I would have gotten out of it.
Oliver: Oh really. Before or after they packed you into a thousand little tin cans?
Victor: Well at least he would've been dolphin-safe.
Arthur: Fish jokes. That's all I ever get are fish jokes.
Oliver: Come on, boys. Let's go save the world.

In-Joke: When Cyborg hacks into Lex's systems, his left eye glows red. In the comics, the upper-left half of Cyborg's face is metallic, and as such, only his left eye is red.
In-joke: Bart, who was not allowed to pick his codename, is called "Impulse" because of his impulsive nature. In the comics, he was originally named this (and for the same reason) before eventually taking the moniker "Kid Flash" and later "The Flash."
In-joke: Clark's codename Boy Scout is taken from one of Superman's nicknames "the big blue boy scout".
In-joke: Arthur's reference to fish jokes references the many parodies made about the Justice League and how Aquaman's superpowers aren't very good compared to others.
In-joke: Oliver says their next mission is to the island of Corto Maltese. Corto Maltese is an island country mentioned in Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, and subsequently gets another in-joke reference in Batman (1989) as the country where Vicki Vale worked as a photojournalist. Miller got the name from Corto Maltese, a sea captain created in an Italian comic book series by Hugo Pratt.
Kristin Kreuk is credited but does not appear.
Justin Hartley is billed specifically by character name (Oliver Queen).
Music: Greg Laswell - High And Low ("Through Toledo")
In-joke: Lex's line "Whoever's responsible has the ability to move faster than a speeding bullet." is a play on the opening line of The Adventures of Superman.
In-joke: Chloe's role as the woman in front of a computer, giving technical information to the "ground troops" is very similar to the role of "Oracle," who aids members of the Justice League and other heroes of the DC Comics Universe from her computer with information about building's schematics and criminal profiles among other things. Oracle was considered a member of the Justice League in a late 90's version of the League.
In-joke: The satellite Chloe uses to track Bart's calls is owned by "J.L. International." During the 80s, there was a comic series titled Justice League International as opposed to simply the Justice League of America.
In-joke: The heroes' codenames (except for Chloe's) are their comic book counterparts.
In-joke: Every time a member of the League speaks into the communicators, they refer to Oliver's office where Chloe is at as the "Watchtower." The comic book Justice League has had bases in space and on the moon, and are typically called "Watchtowers." The satellite base the League uses in the animated series is called the Watchtower through the entire series.
