** In an episode, having just captured the assassin Deadshot who tried to kill Aquaman, several members of the League threaten him with physical violence, which he shrugs off. Batman then takes him aside and whispers something to him, he practically ''begs'' to tell everything he knows. When Wonder Woman asks Superman what was said (Supes possesses acute hearing) ''he'' tells her that she doesn't want to know. Made even better by the expression on his face. According to Kevin Conroy, the actor who played Batman, he said "[[spoiler:I know where you live, Floyd]]".
