"Smallville: Aqua (#5.4)" (2005)
Arthur Curry: Maybe we should start up a Junior Lifeguard Association or something.
Clark: I'm not sure I'm ready for the JLA quite yet.

Arthur Curry: I don't run with an entourage.

Arthur Curry: Maybe you ought to stick to the shallow end until you know how to swim, gorgeous.
Lois Lane: Maybe you ought to try a breath mint, surfer boy.

Clark: I'll go talk to Lex.
Arthur Curry: There isn't enough time. Come on, Superboy. With you on the turf and me in the surf, we could stop this thing cold.

Lois Lane: You're not a military brat, are you?
Arthur Curry: No, just a brat.

Lois Lane: You don't even know me.
Arthur Curry: What's to know? You're abrasive, sarcastic, and you never shut up.
Lois Lane: Yeah, those are my good qualities.

Clark: Just stay out of trouble, alright, A.C.?
Arthur Curry: Try to get in some, Clark. Stay super, bro.

Arthur Curry: Please, please, please destroy that weapon.
Lex Luthor: Wow. Okay, you convinced me. I'll flush a 100 million in R&D down the toilet and put the nation's fleet at risk while I'm at it. You might be a big fish in the water but up here I'm the shark.

Clark Kent: Look, I don't think Leviathan is gonna be a threat anymore, but Lex might. He's seen your abilities. He'll turn the world upside down looking for you.
Arthur Curry: Well, the world's three-quarters water. Good luck finding me.


Aquaman (2006) (TV)
Arthur 'AC' Curry: You want to know the real reason why I freed those dolphins? It's because I felt like they were calling to me.
Eva: What are you saying, you can talk to fish now?

McCaffery: There are creatures in the deep you couldn't imagine in your worst nightmares.
Arthur 'AC' Curry: Oh, thats reassuring. Thanks a lot.

Nadia: It's amazing how cruel people can be.
Arthur Curry: Yeah. It bothers me more and more. That marlin should be in the ocean, not hanging on some moron's fireplace.
Nadia: Maybe someday the fish will get their revenge.
Arthur Curry: I don't know. I think rednecks make pretty ugly trophies.

McCaffery: Once a siren has you in her gaze, there's nothing a man can do.
Arthur Curry: A siren? Of course. You act like you see them all the time.
McCaffery: I've seen my fair share. Unfortunately, my aim is a little rusty. The only way to kill those scaly bitches is to nail them between the eyes.
Arthur Curry: Who are you?
McCaffery: An exile like you and your mother.
Arthur Curry: Exile from where?
McCaffery: It's called different names by different cultures. You probably know by its most famous: Atlantis.
Arthur Curry: Atlantis. Yeah. Next time you're in Atlantis, can you say hi to Captain Nemo and the Little Mermaid for me?

Arthur Curry: [to McCaffery] Does Atlantis has a retractable dome? Or does everyone just swim around in there like a bunch of fish?

McCaffery: You can't avoid your responsibility, Orin. It's in your bones and you know it.
Arthur Curry: This is insane. I'm a dive shop owner. I'm not the protector ot the Seven Seas!
McCaffery: Destiny is like a riptide. You never know it's pulling you until its too late.

Arthur Curry: Henry IV Parts I and II. Hmm. Didn't really know Shakespeare was into sequels.
McCaffery: I expect for you to have read them by next week.
Arthur Curry: Uh, I gave up book reports in sixth grade.
McCaffery: This is part of your training.
Arthur Curry: Right. See, when you said training. I thought you meant, you know, wielding tridents and doing cool stuff in the water.
McCaffery: All in due time. Don't worry. There's plenty sex and violence in there to keep you interested.
Arthur Curry: Can't you just hit the highlights and tell me how it ends?
McCaffery: The lesson isn't in the ending, Orin. It's in the journey.


"Smallville: Justice (#6.11)" (2007)
[Cyborg catches up to Aquaman]
Victor Stone: Nice, But please, put a shirt on.
Arthur Curry: I swim faster when I'm naked.
Victor Stone: I bet you do.
Arthur Curry: You're lucky I still got my pants on.

Victor Stone: Cyborg to Aquaman. Where the hell are you, fish stick?
[Aquaman walks in]
Arthur Curry: Dude, what took you so long?

Clark Kent: A.C., how did you fall into all this?
Arthur Curry: Got into a little trouble sinking a whaler off the coast of Japan.
Victor Stone: A little trouble? That's what you're gonna go with? Ollie had to save your scaly butt from getting filleted.
Arthur Curry: I would have gotten out of it.
Oliver Queen: Oh, really? Before or after they packed you into a thousand little tin cans?
Victor Stone: Well at least he would've been dolphin-safe.
Arthur Curry: Fish jokes. That's all I ever get are fish jokes.


"Smallville: Patriot (#10.9)" (2010)
Clark Kent: Seismic activity.
Arthur Curry: That's how Mera found the place. She's pretty amazing - smart, passionate, fiery. Even helped me understand my true origins.
Clark Kent: You really went off the high dive for her.
Arthur Curry: I'm so much more with her than I'm solo.
Clark Kent: You don't feel guilty, putting her in danger?
Arthur Curry: Mera can hold her own. If you're worried about someone a little less superpowered, Mera helped me realize that standing on the sidelines isn't the same as being in the game.

Arthur Curry: Glad you didn't find your Davy Jones down there after that explosion.
Clark Kent: I know how much you love the water, but I couldn't be happier to have my two feet on solid ground.
Arthur Curry: Oh, just as well. 'Cause let's be honest, underwater, you look like a clown fish.

Mera: I thought Orin was exaggerating, Clark, but everything about he said about you is true. Even when the tide is turning, you work hard to bring change by delivering justice. Not bombs. As a patriot to the country, not just the cause.
Arthur Curry: That's our Boy Scout.


"Smallville: Odyssey (#8.1)" (2008)
Dinah Lance: Well, unfortunately, we've still got a minor problem out there.
Arthur Curry: Yeah, you're not the only one thawing out from a little freezer burn there, Boy Scout.
Clark Kent: Lex.
Oliver Queen: Yeah. We sorted through all the Arctic tests, and there's no sign of any human remains.
Clark Kent: We need to find him. He knows my secret.
Oliver Queen: It's not gonna be as easy as you think. The new C.E.O. of Luthorcorp's even more deceptive than Lex ever was.
Dinah Lance: And now that our masks have been ripped off, we're seriously hampered.
Arthur Curry: We might as well be wearing name tags.
Clark Kent: We need to split up.
Oliver Queen: We? I'd be careful, Clark. Pretty soon, you'll be sporting a homemade costume and leading a double identity just like the rest of us.
Dinah Lance: You might want to try something a little more formfitting.
Oliver Queen: We split up and cut off contact with each other. We lay low, found out what we can about Lex.

Regan Matthews: It's a shame that Lex couldn't be here to see this. The elusive band of terrorists finally in captivity.
Dinah Lance: Lex was never able to find us. How did his Bozo zookeeper get so lucky?
Regan Matthews: Luck has nothing to do with it, Miss Lance. I have a new secret weapon. You weren't up there scouring the Arctic for Lex. You were searching for someone else. The Traveler.
Arthur Curry: Who's that, some frequent flyer?
Regan Matthews: He's an alien. He knows what happened to Lex. Who is he?
Arthur Curry: Look, the only reason we headed up to that winter wonderland was to find Lex.
Regan Matthews: You're lying through your gills, Mr. Curry.


Justice League (2017)
Bruce Wayne: There is a... stranger. He comes to this village from the sea. He comes in the winter when people are hungry and brings fish. Comes out of the King tide. That was last night.
[Arthur Curry turns around]
Arthur Curry: Talk.


"Young Justice: Downtime (#1.8)" (2011)
Orin: [to Aqualad] Batman has made me aware of your dilema. I know from personal experience it can be difficult to live there and love here.
Computer: Recognize Aquaman 06.
Orin: I am confident you will make the right choice.
