Justice League: War (2014) (V)
Green Lantern: They don't like us much.
Batman: The world's afraid of us.
Green Lantern: You say that like it's good thing.
Batman: It's necessary.

Green Lantern: As I was saying, Green Lantern can do anything.
Batman: Except shut up, apparently.
Green Lantern: Wow, someone forgot to take their True Blood tonight.
Batman: I'm not a vampire.
Green Lantern: Seriously? I thought it was the darkness and the vanishing, and the, what, super strength?
Batman: No.
Green Lantern: Can you fly?
Batman: In a plane.
Green Lantern: Wait, you're not just some guy in a bat costume, are you? Are you freaking kidding me? What, nobody asked you to prom so you now dress as a bat and prowl around your parents' basement?

[Batman removes the ring from Green Lantern, he changes back to Hal]
Batman: What's this do?
Green Lantern: Huh?
Batman: No buttons. I assume it works off concentration.
Hal Jordan: How did you do that?
Batman: You weren't concentrating.
Green Lantern: [puts ring back on and changes back] You won't do that again.
Batman: Unless I want to.

Green Lantern: Here's the plan. Green Lantern kicks Superman's ass. TMZ's got the video.

Green Lantern: Flash, my boy. Great to see you. Oh, yeah, and that's Batman.
The Flash: Batman's real?
Green Lantern: Yeah, he's over there.
The Flash: Wait, what? It is a real honor to meet you, sir, Batman. Sir, Batman, sir. Ahem.
Green Lantern: Don't bother. That guy's a total tool.
Batman: I followed your efforts in Central City, Flash. You do tight, efficient work.
Green Lantern: Hey, Barry, you, uh, got a little something on your nose.

Green Lantern: Out of my way, Batman.
Batman: Your arm is broken, you idiot.
Green Lantern: I can handle this. Get out of my way.
Batman: You're gonna die.
Green Lantern: Then I die.
Batman: What are you trying to prove?
Green Lantern: I'm not trying to prove anything, you phenomenal douche bag. Don't act like you know me. You don't.
Batman: We're just somewhat alike.
Green Lantern: We are nothing alike.
Batman: We're fighting alongside an alien, an Amazon, a human lightning bolt, a cyborg and a speedster. As far as I can tell, Hal, you and I are the only normal people here.
Green Lantern: I never told you my name.
Batman: Saw it on your flight suit.
Green Lantern: You're pretty south of normal, spooky. You know that, right?
Bruce Wayne: [removes his cowl and cape] My name is Bruce Wayne. When I was 10, my parents were murdered in front of my eyes. I've spent my life training to fight the same sort of criminals that took them from me. But this, this is different. This isn't about me.
Green Lantern: Uh, you're telling me this why?
Bruce Wayne: This is bigger than I am and it's bigger than you are. Get out of your own way. Focus on what's important here. Everyone else. Regroup with the others.
Green Lantern: And do what exactly?
Bruce Wayne: You're loud. They'll listen to you if you got something to say. Try to at least sound smart.

Cyborg: I think what Lantern is saying is that it's time for some teamwork. So let's pull it together.
Shazam: Yeah, baby, clap it up.
The Flash: What's the plan, then?
Green Lantern: Well, he blast those beams out of his eyes, right?
Wonder Woman: It's settled, then. We blind him.
Green Lantern: That's as good as a plan as any. Yeah, we follow and we stay out of sight. I'll turn on the fireworks to get his attention. Princess, you in striking distance and stab that son of a bitch in the eyes.
Wonder Woman: Like poor damned Oedipus.
Shazam: Yeah, what the hot Greek chick said.
The Flash: And the invasion of monsters raining from the sky, what about them?
Cyborg: I might be able to send them back where they came from.
Green Lantern: Good enough for me. Here we go, team. We got this.

Green Lantern: [to Wonder Woman] Get him out of there. His showboating is gonna ruin the entire plan. Oh, great, now I'm Batman.

Green Lantern: Costume? This is my uniform.
Batman: Quiet.
Green Lantern: Oh, you wanna bark orders, after I did the heavy lifting and pulled everyone together?
Batman: You're referring to when you botched simple directives and Wonder Woman led the charge?
Green Lantern: Cyborg showed you a video?
Batman: He e-mailed it to me.
Green Lantern: I really hate you, Bats.

President: These super-friends use their super-powers to protect us.
Green Lantern: And we're not friends either.
Batman: We let them think we're both.
Green Lantern: Why?
Batman: It'll keep Gothan P.D. off my back, the Air Force off yours.

Shazam: I don't know, a team? I've got a lot of responsibilities.
Wonder Woman: As do I.
Green Lantern: Well, I have a whole universe to protect, people, so there you go.
The Flash: Come on, we can do it together.
Green Lantern: Yeah? Can you fly in space?
Superman: I can.
Green Lantern: Not my point. Look, we're not friends. We're not a team.
The Flash: I don't agree, Hal. I kind of like of being a part of something.
Green Lantern: Yeah, you would. Listen, this was just a one-time deal, okay?
Batman: And what if something should happen again?
Green Lantern: Please, what could possible happen?

Green Lantern: I'm Green Lantern, dammit!

Green Lantern: This guy's gonna kill us.
Batman: No he won't. You bruise. But you don't kill. Do you... Clark?
Superman: [Superman stops] You've made your point...
[Superman uses his X-Ray vision on Batman]
Superman: Bruce Wayne.
Green Lantern: Who the Hell is "Bruce Wayne?"


"Justice League: The Once and Future Thing Part One: Weird Western Tales (#3.12)" (2005)
Green Lantern: Anyway, why are we always talking about my love life? What's going on between you and Diana?
Batman: Nothing. She's a respected colleague.
Green Lantern: [unconvinced] Uh-huh.
Batman: I don't have time to pursue a relationship. My work is too important to allow another distraction. Diana's a remarkable woman, she's a valued friend. She's... standing right behind me, isn't she?
Wonder Woman: Don't let that stop you.
[leans over him, flirtatiously]
Wonder Woman: Keep digging.

Green Lantern: Diana's carrying a grudge.
Batman: She'll get over it. How 'bout you? Carrying anything?
Green Lantern: What? Shayera? We're cool. We're giving each other our space. I'm seeing Vixen, now... I'm very happy.
Batman: [Unconvinced] Uh-huh.

Green Lantern: So what's the plan?
Jonah Hex: Plan? We put him in the ground.

Batman: [looking at a newspaper] I was afraid of this. The Elkhorn Gazette. It's either an amazing forgery, or it's less than a month old.
Wonder Woman: So?
Batman: Look at the date: June 1879.
Green Lantern: I have mentioned how much I hate time travel.

[after taking the robbers' clothes, Lantern checks their pistols]
Green Lantern: Those empty holsters aren't gonna scare anybody. You sure you don't want one of these?
Batman: Positive. Let's ride!

Sheriff Ohiyesa 'Pow Wow' Smith: We're getting close. I should warn you, there's been some downright unusual activity going on at this place. Don't let it throw you.
Green Lantern: Don't worry about it. We've had a lot of experience with unusual...
[an animal roars; they look up and see a sentry riding a pterodactyl toward them]
Green Lantern: I'm sorry, you were saying?

Green Lantern: I'll get the door.
[Diana yanks it off its hinges]
Green Lantern: Or that.

Wonder Woman: Don't hurt anyone. We could accidentally change history.
Green Lantern: Little late for that, don't you think?


"Justice League: Secret Origins: Part II (#1.2)" (2001)
Green Lantern: Who's the rookie in the tiara?
Superman: I'm not sure

The Flash: This is too weird.
Green Lantern: I've seen stranger things.

Green Lantern: Lady, this no job for amateurs.
Wonder Woman: We Amazons are warriors born. Want to test me?
Superman: Let's not fight among ourselves. John, we're gonna need all the help we can get.
Green Lantern: Fine. Sorry - Your Highness.

The Flash: You are no fun.
Green Lantern: This isn't supposed to be fun.

Green Lantern: Now listen up, here's the plan.
The Flash: What plan? We kick their butts, right; let's get this over with.

Green Lantern: Of all the idiotic, boneheaded, glory-grabbing moves. Haven't you ever heard of teamwork?
The Flash: [a laser-shot fires near where he's being freed] Um, maybe we better save the motivational speeches for *later*?


"Justice League: The Once and Future Thing Part Two: Time, Warped (#3.13)" (2005)
Green Lantern: Green Lanterns have a legend, no one can see the beginning of time. It's a universal law.
Batman: Write him a ticket!

Warhawk: If we don't beat this guy, it's the end of everything.
Future Batman: We've been there before.
Warhawk: Not like this. What are you supposed to do when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders?
Green Lantern: [puts his hand on Warhawk's shoulder] Plant your feet.

Warhawk: This is a little weird for everybody. I'm Warhawk, Rex Stewart.
Green Lantern: Your mother, who is she?
Warhawk: Kinda obvious, don't ya think?
Batman: Even if it isn't, leave it be. You don't wanna know too much of your future.
Future Batman: Trust me, you really don't.
Static: Shayera was one cranky pregnant lady. Although to be fair, if I'd laid an egg that size...
[Lantern looks shocked]
Warhawk: He's kidding, Dad.

Ghoul: [Being interrogated] ... And we've got 9,453 active Jokerz organized into about 200 smaller groups. I dunno where Chronos is, he contacts us! He spends every night in a different one of those old buildings. There's no way of knowing ahead of time where he's gonna be. And that's everything I know!
Old Bruce Wayne: Everything?
Ghoul: ...I wet my bed until I was 14.
Static: Losing my patience.
Batman: I can't control my friend here much longer. You'd better give us something we can use.
Ghoul: His wife! I know where his wife is!
Static: Wow... Batman playing "good cop."
Green Lantern: Everything's relative.

[Blasting Woof away before he attacks an injured Warhawk]
Green Lantern: Get away from my kid!


"Justice League: Eclipsed (#2.13)" (2003)
The Flash: Hey, we should take a road trip!
Green Lantern: What?
The Flash: Think about it - two hard-travelling heroes cruising the countryside looking for America.
Green Lantern: Uh, yeah, I'll let you know when my schedule frees up.

Green Lantern: [to Flash] Why do *you* need a van? Wait - don't answer that; I don't wanna know.

Green Lantern: Your commercial stinks, you're a no-talent hack and your doughnuts are stale.

Green Lantern: He torched the sewers.
The Flash: [grinning] I was wondering what that smell was.

Green Lantern: [of the antagonist with his face painted except a cresent on one side] Diana, you take Mr. Moonface.


Justice League: Doom (2012) (V)
Green Lantern: That's three you owe me.
Batman: We keeping score?
Green Lantern: Not literally.
Batman: Because if we are, it's 8 to 7, my favor.

Green Lantern: All right, now come the warning shots. Give up? Please say no.
Ten: You'll never catch me, Lantern.
Green Lantern: Lots of women say that.

Star Sapphire: [as Carol] She sort of looks like me, doesn't she?
Green Lantern: Carol?
Star Sapphire: Yes. Her name was Carol too. She's beautiful, of course, and she has dark hair like mine. And the stench of your failure hanging over her.
Green Lantern: I didn't mean...
Star Sapphire: You didn't mean to get all those people killed? You didn't mean to betray me, drive me into becoming this?
[changes into Star Sapphire]
Star Sapphire: What didn't you mean, Hal?
Green Lantern: I don't know. I'm...
Star Sapphire: Afraid? Afraid that you don't deserve to have so much power? That nobody does?
Green Lantern: Yes. I don't deserve this.
Star Sapphire: Then I hope you have the decency to do what's right and suffer for your many sins.

Green Lantern: Wake up, King. Got some questions for you.
King: I want a lawyer.
Green Lantern: You're getting ahead of yourself. First you want a doctor. Then you want a lawyer.

Superman: In light of the recent breach of trust revealed to us during the Vandal Savage matter, we have to decide whether Batman should remain in the League. All those in favor of...
Wonder Woman: Wait. Before we vote, I believe the accused should be allowed a few words in his defense.
Green Lantern: Seconded.
Superman: Okay. Batman?
Batman: My actions don't require any defense. In the same situation, I'd do it again.
The Flash: Aw, come on!
Batman: As individuals, and even more so as a group, the Justice League is far too dangerous to lack a failsafe against any possible misuse of our power.
Wonder Woman: We use our power to protect the world. We always have.
Batman: And what if we ever used it for some other purpose?
[rises from his seat]
Batman: If you people can't see the potential danger of an out-of-control Justice League, I don't need to wait for a vote. I don't belong here.
[walks out of the room]


"Justice League: Only a Dream (#2.5)" (2003)
Volcana: You think this could hold me?
Green Lantern: Knock yourself out.

Green Lantern: [speaking of Dee] Look, whatever he is, he's sure not in the same league as Grundy and the others. He's a nobody.
Batman: Ever read "The Odyssey"? After Odysseus was caught by the cyclops, he told it his name was "Nobody." So when he poked its eye out and its friends asked who did it, all the cyclops could say was, "nobody."
Green Lantern: Point taken.

Green Lantern: Good bluff.
Hawkgirl: Who was bluffing?

[after Grundy crashes after a huge fall]
Hawkgirl: He'll live. You won't.
Copperhead: I'm not scared!
[Green Lantern appears]
Green Lantern: Then maybe this'll help: you do anything to her, and you won't even make it to the ground.

Green Lantern: You don't know if Dee did this.
Batman: I don't know that he *didn't* do it.


"Justice League: Starcrossed: Part III (#2.26)" (2004)
Hro Talak: The forcefield control is over here. That is what you came for, yes? You want it? All you have to do is get by me.
Green Lantern: It'll be a pleasure.
Hro Talak: No! This won't be like the last time you took something that belonged to me.
Green Lantern: Anything I took was freely offered. Maybe you should take better care of your stuff.

Green Lantern: That all you got? My grandma hits harder than you.

Green Lantern: [of the generator] It's behind a forcefield.
Batman: A forcefield controlled from the command ship. Go shut it down. I'll take care of the generator.
The Flash: That thing's the size of a city. What are you gonna do, throw a Batarang at it?
Batman: Something like that.

Hro Talak: I've beaten you, little man. Any last words?
Green Lantern: Yeah. You can kiss my axe.


"Justice League: Kid Stuff (#3.3)" (2004)
Young Wonder Woman: I guess I'll go with Clark.
[to Batman, flirting]
Young Wonder Woman: Unless I should go with you.
Young Batman: Whatever.
Young Superman: I'm fine to go with Diana.
Young Green Lantern: So Bruce and I are good to go?
Young Wonder Woman: I changed my mind. I'll go with Bruce and John can go with Clark.
Young Batman: [Getting annoyed] What*ever*.
[They take off]
Young Superman: What's with them?
Young Green Lantern: Man, for someone with like, fifty different kinds of vision, you are so blind.
[he takes off]
Young Superman: [still confused] What?

[Etrigan, now a diaper-wearing infant, randomly attacks the League with his fire breath until Wonder Woman wisely picks him up and burps him]
Young Wonder Woman: See? That's all he needed.
Young Green Lantern: [sniffs the air] Oh, man. That ain't all he needs.
Young Batman: Now *that* is a job for Superman.

[League members have been reduced to children by Morgan LeFay. Wonder Woman, appearing more mature than her male counterparts, begins giving orders]
Young Green Lantern: Your girlfriend sure is bossy.
Young Batman: [Whines] Shut up!

Young Batman: [sees Lantern squinting] What's wrong?
Young Green Lantern: I wore glasses as a kid. Guess I need 'em again.
[a pair of big, square glasses appear over his eyes]
Young Green Lantern: Wow! I didn't even try to make these.
Young Batman: [as Superman bursts out laughing] I hope not.


"Justice League: Far from Home (#5.10)" (2006)
Supergirl: [Watching a recording of Supergirl] Tell Ma and Pa I love them. And, I love you too, Clark. Don't take this the wrong way, but I've found a place where I can make a difference. Where I'm more than Superman's kid cousin. I... I feel I belong here. Also, I met this boy.
Green Arrow: You should had seen her. She was amazing.
Green Lantern: She's a grown woman now, capable of choosing...
Superman: Kara's headstrong, but she's always made good decisions. I trust her judgement. But you were right, Ollie. I wish I had told her.
Green Arrow: It's okay, Clark. She knows.
Superman: Now, this boy Kara likes so much, does he have a name?
[John and Ollie go silent. Both too scared to tell Clark that Kara's fallen in love with a Brainiac]

Brainiac 5: Yes, I am a Brainiac, but I'm not a machine. I'm organic. The universe-conquering Brainiac you knew is my distant ancestor. Over time he learned to pass his code down biologically. I am Brainiac 5. Think of me as the black sheep of my family, dedicated to doing good to make up for my ancestor's legacy of evil.
Green Lantern: And you demonstrated that by - kidnapping us.

Bouncing Boy: It's a real thrill for me to meet you, sir. You're the famous John Stewart, father of...
Green Lantern: You wanna shut up before you create a time paradox?

Supergirl: Aren't you gonna give me notes on all the things I screwed up?
Green Lantern: No notes, Kara. There's nothing more I can teach you.


"Justice League: The Enemy Below: Part II (#1.7)" (2001)
[while Aquaman is being operated on]
Superman: His own hand... I can't believe it.
Green Lantern: I told you he was a madman.
Mera: Is it madness to sacrifice all for someone you love?

Green Lantern: I saw it but I still don't believe it.

Green Lantern: I suppose this is a bad time to say I told you so.

Batman: Your ring. Will it protect me?
Green Lantern: We'll find out.


"Justice League: The Brave and the Bold: Part II (#1.13)" (2002)
Green Lantern: Flash, don't heckle the super-villain.

The Flash: Not bad, huh? I outsmarted a super genius!
Green Lantern: Maybe you're not as dumb as you look!
[walks away]
The Flash: Yeah, and I... Hey!
[chases after Green Lantern]
The Flash: I resent that! No one's makes a monkey out of me!
[Grodd, after getting his mind wiped by the feedback of his helmet, sits idle in the cage, then suddenly makes an angry look at the heroes as they leave, showing he's not through yet]

Solivar: Perhaps the shield frightened them.
The Flash: Maybe, but when a city is this empty it usually means flesh-eating zombies are involved.
Green Lantern: You watch too many movies.
Solivar: Ssh. Listen.
The Flash: [approaching hearing an eerie noise] Maybe *you* don't watch *enough*.

Solivar: Hurry! Before Grodd finds out we're here!
[an alert sounds]
The Flash: I get the feeling he already knows!
Green Lantern: No! That's a launch alert!
[four missiles launch from the base, Green Lantern flies up after them]
Green Lantern: I'll go after the missiles! You stop Grodd!
The Flash: Right! Stop Grodd, how?


The Lego Movie (2014)
Green Lantern: Don't worry, Superman, I'll get you out of there!
Superman: [covered in gum] No, don't!
Green Lantern: Oh, my gosh, my hands are stuck. My legs are stuck as well.
Superman: I super hate you.

Superman: Can't move!
Green Lantern: Don't worry, Superman! I'll get you outta there!
Superman: No! Don't...
Green Lantern: Ahh! Oh my gosh, my hands are stuck. My legs are stuck as well.
Superman: I super hate you.

Superman: Can't get much worse than this.
Green Lantern: Uh, hello, neighbor.
Superman: Oh, no.
Green Lantern: It's Green Lantern. Oh my gosh, we're roommates. How crazy is that?
Superman: Does anyone have some kryptonite that they can give me?


"Justice League: The Savage Time: Part III (#1.26)" (2002)
Green Lantern: [after being rescued from a plane] What took you?
Hawkgirl: I had to fix my hair.

Green Lantern: Say your prayers, Savage!
Vandal Savage: A god doesn't grovel.

Vandal Savage: Now talk.
Green Lantern: Talk is cheap.


"Justice League: Hearts and Minds (#2.9)" (2003)
Green Lantern: Can't we all just get along?
[knocks Despero's henchmen into the ceiling]

Green Lantern: There's always a resistance, isn't there?
Shifflet: Wherever there's oppression, there will be, I believe the saying goes.

Green Lantern: I'll go with you.
Katma Tui: Uh-uh, John Stewart. You'll stay and coordinate with them.
[kisses him]
Katma Tui: Besides, you wouldn't look very good in a brass bikini.


"Justice League: The Return (#3.8)" (2004)
[the Green Lantern Corps want to destroy Amazo because they believe he destroyed Oa, but Dr. Fate steps in their way]
Dr. Fate: Wait. Please. The android's nature has proved benign before. I believe it will again.
Green Lantern: Benign? You call destroying Oa benign?
[the entire Green Lantern Corps aim their power rings at Dr. Fate]
Green Lantern: Not even you can stand against the Green Lantern Corps.
[Dr. Fate steps aside]

Green Lantern: He murders an entire world and it's *over*? Just like that? I don't think so!
[Lanterns raise their rings]
Amazo: I did not destroy Oa. I simply moved it to another dimension.
[Lanterns lower their rings, and look at Amazo]
Amazo: It was in my way.
Green Lantern: Then could you move it back?
Amazo: Done.

[as Amazo approaches Earth]
Superman: What do you want?
Amazo: Why do you ask questions to which you already know the answer?
Superman: Luthor.
Amazo: Of course.
Superman: We're not going to give him up.
Amazo: He is your enemy. You owe him nothing.
Superman: Turn-back-*now*.
Amazo: I have developed far beyond what I was before. You do not want to challenge me.
Green Lantern: LIGHT HIM UP!
[the entire League attacks]


"Justice League: Metamorphosis: Part II (#1.23)" (2002)
Sapphire Stagg: I see why he always looked up to you.
Green Lantern: To me? He was the one who had it made.
Sapphire Stagg: No, I've seen him watching you on the news. The way you're always helping people, I think he'd trade places with you in a second.

Metamorpho: I see you've met Stagg's synthoid.
Green Lantern: Learn anything?
Hawkgirl: Yeah, don't hit it with an energy-mace.

[last lines]
Hawkgirl: Still dreaming about the road not taken?
Green Lantern: [smiling] What do you think?


"Justice League: Legends: Part II (#1.17)" (2002)
Green Lantern: It's all over, Ray.
Ray Thompson: It's been over before. I changed that!

Hawkgirl: Are you okay?
Green Lantern: It's stupid really. Why should I feel like this? I mean, they weren't even real.
Hawkgirl: They gave their lives for us. That's real enough for me.

Green Lantern: Haven't you noticed that nothing here makes sense? Library books with blank pages. Ice cream trucks that never stop.
Hawkgirl: Dangers that spring up whenever someone gets too close to the truth.
Green Guardsman: What truth?
Green Lantern: That your world is an illusion, a living memory of a civilization that was destroyed 30 years ago. When The Justice Guild gave their lives for this Earth,
[Tosses the newspaper with the headline JGA Killed In Battle in front of them]
Green Lantern: that's why they stopped publishing the comic in our world. No more Justice Guild.
Hawkgirl: And anytime someone tries to figure things out...
The Flash: ...nuns and dynamite.
Tom Turbine: If what you say is true, who or what is creating this illusion?
J'onn J'onzz: I suggest you ask Ray.
The Streak: Ray?
Ray Thompson: Why would I know anything?
J'onn J'onzz: Because you are the source.
[puts his hands on Ray's shoulders, then his eyes glow followed by Ray's glowing as well, then Ray suddenly cringes]
Ray Thompson: NOOOOOOOOO!
[He morphs into his true self, a mutated creature with torn up clothes and different length arms and a big head, everyone else gasps in shock]
Ray Thompson: You ruined it! You ruined everything!
[fires a beam from his forehead right into J'onn J'onzz's chest, knocking him back towards The Flash, Cat Man, and Black Siren who catch him as he falls unconscious, then a giant red mechanical monster tears the roof off]
The Flash: That's it, I officially want to go home.


"Justice League: Hearts and Minds: Part II (#2.10)" (2003)
Hawkgirl: [waiting for John outside his "training" room] She's got a bit of an edge to her.
Green Lantern: You're kidding, right?
Hawkgirl: [pushes off the wall] Just an observation.
Green Lantern: It's like she thinks I'm still a raw recruit.
Hawkgirl: [starts to walk away] We tend to cling to images of people from when we knew them best,
[looks over her shoulder at him]
Hawkgirl: forgetting that they do change.
Green Lantern: [follows her] OK. So, as someone who knows John Stewart in the here and now, how would you handle me?
Hawkgirl: [stands in front of him] As a friend and equal, I'd say get in there and try again.
[waves her fist under his nose]
Hawkgirl: Or I'll knock you into next Tuesday.
Green Lantern: Somehow I fail to see the difference in your approach.
Hawkgirl: Oh there's a difference.
[puts her hands on his shoulders and leans against his chest]
Hawkgirl: You just haven't figured it out yet.
[puts her face right in front of his]
Hawkgirl: Now get back in there.
[she turns him around, then slaps his butt]

The Flash: Hey, GL, did you miss me?
Green Lantern: Like a toothache!

Green Lantern: There's more to me than just a fancy ring.
Hawkgirl: I've always known that about you, John.


"Justice League: Initiation (#3.1)" (2004)
Supergirl: So, aren't you going to give me the "You did good" speech?
Green Lantern: You're headstrong, unprofessional, and reckless. If you ever jeopardize yourself or your teammates again by running off half-cocked without a battle plan, I will personally see you're kicked out of the League. I don't care who your cousin is. And incidentally... you did good.

Green Lantern: Just look around. If you see anything, don't engage.
Captain Atom: Roger that!
Green Lantern: Uh, you can just say "okay."
Captain Atom: Okay.

Supergirl: [Green Arrow and Captain Atom are arguing] HEY! We've got a giant out of control robot out there! But if you two guys are too busy playing Alpha Males Smackdown, I guess I'll just have to deal with it myself.
[starts to leave]
Green Lantern: SHAYERA!
[everyone turns to GL]
Green Lantern: You need a plan. You need to find its weakness.


Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (2008) (VG)
Captain Marvel: I think I finally have the rage under control. It's all coming from this other universe trying to merge with ours. Its energy creates this terrible fury. You just want to hit something.
Green Lantern: That's what the Guardians said. How did you figure it out?
Captain Marvel: Their alien gods are creating interference with my powers and infecting me with their combat rage.
Green Lantern: Great. Out of control magical alien god powers. So that would make you a danger to us and to yourself.
Captain Marvel: None of us is safe from the rage until this is stopped. I have to get back to the Rock of Eternity to get closer to the gods and see how we can defeat this rage. There has to be a way.
Green Lantern: Good luck, Cap.

Lex Luthor: You lack imagination, Green Lantern. You've always had. Someone like me should have that ring.
Green Lantern: Over my dead body, Lex.

Shang Tsung: [after defeating Superman] At least *they* were more of a challenge than your masters.
Liu Kang: [Giving in to the Kombat Rage] Do not test me, Shang Tsung. I should've killed you at the acadamy!
Shang Tsung: What stopped you?
Liu Kang: Shang Tsung, your treachery ends here!
Liu Kang: [Liu Kang and Shang Tsung fight, with Shang Tsung winning] How, how can this be? You're more powerful than before.
Liu Kang: I was weakened when last we fought. But energies are in constant flux as a result of the merging. Now, I am revitalized, surging with power, I could finish you right now.
Green Lantern: [Getting up] You want a finish? You got it.
[Charges at Liu kang and punches him out]
Shang Tsung: Leave him. He is defeated. Now, you face a more dealy adversary.

"Justice League: Legends (#1.16)" (2002)
The Streak: Obviously the clue "fire" can mean only one thing. The plan to steal the fabled Flame of Rasputin. A precious ruby necklace on loan to the Seaboard City Museum!
Green Lantern: You know your stuff. It's an honor to fight aside you.
The Streak: The feeling's mutual. You're a credit to your people, son.
Green Lantern: [Awkwardly] Uh... thanks.

Green Lantern: This can't be real.
The Flash: Tell me about it. I almost busted a gut during that roll-call routine.
Green Lantern: It's not that, it's the Justice Guild. They're... comic-book characters.
The Flash: What?
Green Lantern: When I was a kid, my uncle James had the biggest comic-book collection I've ever seen. I'd go to his house everyday after school and we'd read old comics all afternoon.
The Flash: So?
Green Lantern: So... The Streak, Tom Turbine, Green Guardsman... they were the stars of my favorite comic-book: The Justice Guild of America.
The Flash: This is too weird.
Green Lantern: I know it sounds corny, but... those comics taught me what it meant to be a hero. Without them, well... maybe I wouldn't have this ring today.
The Flash: Ooo-kay.

J'onn J'onzz: [being advanced upon by a trio of unfamiliar superheroes] It seems we are not in Metropolis anymore.
Green Lantern: Yeah, I got that.

Green Lantern: No.
Superman: No, that's right. It's 'cause I do my damn job.

Guardian #1: We are grateful for your help, but there is much work for you on your home planet, Green Lantern of sector 2-8-1-4.

[indicates Superman]
Guardian #1: The ring has chosen you, Kyle Rayner.
The Green Lantern aka Kyle Rayner: But I'm just an artist. I doodle in the margins of notepads, I daydream about color and form, and monster trucks. I live half my life in a fantasy world.
Superman: You sound perfect.

Sinestro: You can't stop me, Green Lantern, I never give up!
Green Lantern: You never shut up, either.

The Green Lantern aka Kyle Rayner, Guardian #1, Guardian #2: [placing his power ring in the glowing center of the power battery, Kyle sees the faces of the Guardians who recite with him the oath of the Green Lantern Corps as he recharges his ring] In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight.

Green Lantern: All right, then let's start with the last thing you *do* remember.
The Flash: Let's see, after I caught the gorilla, he told me that...
Green Lantern: The gorilla *talked* to you?
The Flash: Yeah, right after I stopped his car.
Green Lantern: I'm supposed to believe this?
The Flash: Hey, we both got a Martian's phone number on our speed dial. I think I deserve the benefit of the doubt here.
Green Lantern: Let's check it out, *together* this time.

Solivar: [Green Lantern finds gorilla footprints in the park with his ring and follows them to Solivar in a small tunnel, who beats his chest and roars and runs right for him and The Flash, then Green Lantern fires a beam at his chest, knocking him backwards out of the tunnel and onto his back] Was that really necessary?
Green Lantern: Okay, so he can talk. Who are you?
Solivar: My name is Solivar. I'm chief of security for Gorilla City.

Green Lantern: [looking at the giant drill] We gotta find a way to take this out for good!
The Flash: Why don't you just throw it into the sun?
[GL looks at him skeptically]
The Flash: Yeah, I guess that was a pretty stupid idea.
Green Lantern: No, maybe you're on to something. But I'll need more leverage... and a trench.
The Flash: On it!
[Flash digs a trench in a few seconds]
The Flash: Now what?
[GL creates a giant catapult]
The Flash: Aw, cool!

"Static Shock: Fallen Hero (#4.5)" (2004)
Green Lantern: How could the Guardians *ever* have let you into the Lantern Corps?
Sinestro: [with his voice] Those self-righteous little twerps. They give me all this power, and expect me to satisfied fighting crime? I'd be crazy not to conquer the universe!

[Goes to Wonder Woman]
