  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Robin: Batman, please. Tell me you're not sending us on this joke of a wild ape chase.
      Batman: I never joke about the mission.

    • Robin: I thought vultures only ate dead meat.
      Kid Flash: Yeah. These are some very pro-active scavengers.

    • Artemis: Okay. Nearly drowning two nights in a row is way less fun than it sounds.

    • Robin: Hey, Kaldor. KF and I were attacked by giant vultures. Of course, if I said moles, you'd probably think we attacked ourselves.

    • Kid Flash: What gets me is how nonchalant he is about not telling us.
      Robin: He should be chalant. Way chalant. Extremely chalant.

    • Captain Marvel: That won't work on me.
      The Brain: Perhaps. But it works on solid steel so I'll try my luck. I'm told you have the courage of Achilles, no? Perhaps you should have asked for his invulnerability instead.

    • Kid Flash: It's the Brain.
      Artemis: Uh. I can see it's a brain.
      Kid Flash: Not a brain. The Brain.
      The Brain: In the flesh. So to speak.

    • Artemis: What are you grinning about?
      Kid Flash: One word. (puts Mallah's beret on) Souvenir.
      Artemis: Two words. Gorilla lice.

    • Kid Flash: (about the wolf) Well, he's gonna need a name. How's about Krypto?
      Superboy: Pass.
      Miss Martian: Besides, isn't that taken?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Kid Flash: Parameters? We don't need no stinkin' parameters.
      Referencing the famous and misquoted line, "Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" from The Treasure of Sierra Madre, both the novel (1927) and movie (1947). The line from the movie is actually, "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!" The variation and subsequent popular condensation comes from Blazing Saddles (1974).

    • Kid Flash: Get your paws off her, you darn dirty ape!
      Referencing the line spoken by the astronaut Taylor (Charlton Heston) as he is captured by intelligent gorillas in the 1968 movie Planet of the Apes. The line was also used in the 2001 remake and has been referenced and parodied in a variety of media.
