  • Trivia

    • Lois Lane is the only person in the Daily Planet at night? Besides the janitor who was there a second ago, there should be a night shift. Printing presses do not typically run unsupervised during the night.

  • Quotes

    • Lois: (after finding out Bruce is Batman) So when were you gonna tell me, the honeymoon?

    • Lois: (to Batman) I'm going to get some iodine for that cut. Burning, stinging iodine. (exits)
      Superman: (entering) She's taking it well.
      Batman: It's ironic, you know. She likes Bruce Wayne, and she likes Superman. It's the other two guys she's not crazy about.
      Superman: Too bad we can't mix and match.

    • Angela Chen: And on a lighter note, the Joker's accomplice Harley Quinn is being sent back to Arkham Asylum for yet another round of rehabilitation.
      Harley Quinn: (being pushed into paddy wagon) I want a lawyer! I want a doctor! I want a cheese sandwich!

    • Mercy: (referring to Joker) He said he'd destroy everything Luthor ever built.
      Superman: (to Batman) Luthor's built half of Metropolis!

    • Lois: You lied to me!
      Batman/Bruce: (unmasked) Now, I never said I wasn't Batman. (Lois slaps his injured shoulder) Oww!!

    • Harley Quinn (about the Joker): Puddin!!
      Batman: At this point he probably is.

    • Batman: How do I contact Superman?
      Lois: He's out at sea.
      Batman: Never around when you need him...

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Superman: Couldn't have done it better myself.
      Batman: Helps if you're prepared.
      Possibly an allusion to Superman's nickname, "The Big Blue Boy Scout". The Boy Scout's motto is "Be Prepared"

    • Clark: (to Bruce)We work pretty well together. Not that I want to make it a habit or anything.
      Interesting comment...considering that, between their two series, they'd work together twice more, even before they helped form the Justice League.
