->''"Billy ''[Crystal]'' used to say that every time he'd tell a story, I'd insist on topping it... It used to drive him wild. I remember tuning in to ''Late Night with DavidLetterman'', and there was Billy griping about me. "I could never top Alan King," he was saying, "One time, I thought I had him. Since he comes from a whole other generation, I started telling a story about marijuana, and he listened, not saying a word. Finally, I'm through, and Alan gets out of the makeup chair, walks to the door, turns around, and says, '[[CoolOldGuy I only smoked pot once]]. It was with Lana Turner and Buddy Rich in Norfolk, Virgina.' [[TantrumThrowing I threw my makeup kit at him.]]'"''

->'''Chris:''' Not to get ahead of myself here, but this is a show '''ABOUT SUPERMAN''' where Green Arrow puts together the ComicBook/JusticeLeague to take down ComicBook/LexLuthor and doesn’t even bother to tell Clark Kent because he knows [[DesignatedHero he’s too ineffectual]] to help them accomplish anything. It’s like they did a show about RobinHood, but Little John was the one who was really good at archery and took down the Sheriff of Nottingham, and also he used to bang [[LoisLane Maid Marian]].

->But who's that stranger opening its door, clad in a bad-boy leather jacket, and introducing himself as ''“[[{{Badbutt}} Roger Rabbit, so whut?]]”'' with the kind of cocky swagger that usually precedes the threatening glint of a flick-knife? Welcome to Bayside, A.C. Slater. Zack tries to con the new kid out of it by dropping his usual patter; it's a bum locker; Kelly's got leprosy; Hell, I'll trade it for a (fake) hall pass. But Slater's not like the usual chumps Zack's been walking all over; he's a man of the world, and of 14 schools in the last three years. He's seen it all, and he's wise to Preppy's antics, producing a (real) hall pass of his own, and calling Zack ''“Kid.”'' Damn, son, you just got Slatered.
