Quotes Edit

  • Flash: Oh right, uh, cause it's Flash Appreciation Day. Yeah, it'll be great. I understand if everybody's too busy to come, no biggie. My mom's gonna be there. Let's see, my uncle's flying in. Be great if one of the original seven made it. I mean, okay, yeah, it's the Flash Museum, but to me, the whole League deserves the honor, all of us, like I said no biggie...
  • Batman: What time?
  • Flash: Six o'clock. Nooooo... you're really coming?... Awesome! You're a stand up guy, Bats, don't ever let them call you a crazed loner.



  • Flash: Mirror Master!
  • Mirror Master: You’re as quick as ever!
  • Flash: Yeah? Well, you're... you’re not really all there!
  • Mirror Master: Oooh! Nice try! If you had another minute, you’d probably think of a decent comeback. Sadly you don’t have the time. In another minute you’ll be dead!


  • Trickster: Me next! It’s my turn! Nothing as stupid as a giant boomerang. First, I get 400 cases of fake dog vomit. I grease the bottoms of them and when the Flash runs into them, the whole mess slides into a wall of metal spikes. The cases break open and what’s left of the Flash is buried alive in phony barf! And then… everything explodes!
  • Captain Cold: You know what? Taking turns is dumb, let's all just jump him at the museum.
  • Captain Boomerang: Brilliant!
  • Mirror Master: Good deal...
  • Trickster: But c'mon, it'll be great. Okay, you don't like the barf, I can make do with 50,000 rotten eggs and a chain saw. (everyone leaves) Okay, if that's the way you're going to be about it, forget it - I quit! Nobody gets me...


  • Captain Cold: That's it? I was all set to crack some bones!
