The Flash: Without me, your group fell apart. I was the conscience of the group!
Green Lantern:(snapping) C'mon, Jiminy!
In the episode 'Fearful Symmetry', after The Question reveals that he knows exactly what Supergirl eats late at night (here):
Supergirl: What, do you go through my trash?! The Question: Please. I go through everyone's trash.
Later that episode, The Question breaking into a building while singing Bubblegum Pop out of tune.
The Question: [approaching locked glass door] Fell in love again, what am I gonna tell-my-friends? It just happened, you walked in my door, now I don't want to be. Alone. No. More. [throws a potted plant through the glass] Oops. I've done it. Told you how I feeeel. Now I just have to hope, our love is reeeeal...
In "Injustice for All":
"Duck!.... Tried to warn her."
"This program was made possible by a grant from the Ultra-Humanite and viewers like you."
The episodes have The Joker in them. Of course they're a riot. From his entrance to his final line.
In "Paradise Lost", our heroes investigate Felix Faust's home, where Flash accidentally sets off a death-beam scepter, and Batman chastises him for messing with the relics. Quick cut to Superman, Wonder Woman, and J'onn immediately putting some relics back.
Diana attempting to figure out how to explain her actions to her mother. "Gone? I wasn't gone. I was in my room. Alone... For eight months."
Flash and J'onn pick their players for a game of "Brawlin' Bots" ("The Ties That Bind"):
From the beginning of said episode, Flash and the Elongated Man are deep in discussion and bent over what looks like a chessboard, discussing how neither of them is taken seriously by the rest of the League... only for the camera to pan out and reveal that theyre actually playing Brawlin Bots.
Flash: Haha, I bopped your block off!
EM: That's not fair, the green guy's arms are longer!
"I hear she's... you know... Brazilian." (Hawkgirl, "I Am Legion")
In "The Brave and the Bold", Flash and Green Lantern are talking in front of a hot dog stand. GL admonishes Flash for wasting time. Flash's response?
"Relax, it's just a little snack." [draws out two heaping armfuls of hot dogs].
Even more hilarious is the fact that it's rather accurate, considering the ridiculous number of calories Flash would have to eat daily in order to maintain Super Speed.
AND he stuck GL with the bill!
From "This Little Piggy":
Circe trying to ham it up with a big villain rant. Zatanna isn't having any of it.
Circe: Insolent trickster! You dare to strike... [hit with a chair] You dare to strike... [hit with a table]You dare to strike...[is covered with a tablecloth, yanks it off] QUIT IT! Oh no...[slammed by a piano]
Red Tornado's one line... "Suuuh-WEEEEEE!"
Pig Diana (who is adorable) having so many people chasing her, and happening to block a bullet with her bracelets. The man who shot at her just looks vaguely confused.
Batman gives Wonder Woman the "It's Not You, It's My Enemies" speech about why they can't date and how his villains would attack her. Wonder Woman... crushes a stone gargoyle head to immediately No Sell the entire thing.
According to DVD commentary, The Joker was supposed to make a cameo in the episode. He and his minions would have been plotting something when Batman walks by cradling Pig!Wonder Woman in his arms and talking to her. The whole thing causes Joker to throw his arms up in defeat and walk out of there. It's hilarious to imagine.
Two from "Panic in the Sky". Batman tries to destroy Lex's robot with an exploding batarang. Lex catches it in midair, and deadpans "That... was uncalled for." And then hits him with a tool bench.
Later, Lex asks a defeated Amanda Waller if she really thought she could beat him all by herself.
As Batman is falling from his plane, completely deadpan. ("Dark Heart")
"Batman to all points. I could use some air support. Since I can't fly. At all." [just seconds before he hits the ground] "Now would be good."
Vandal Savage's casual reply when asked what he's doing in "Maid of Honor" Pt. 2:
Vandal Savage:[while counting off each with his fingers] Destroying the Justice League, building a rail gun, assuming total dominion over the Earth.
Batman charges Savage while brandishing a swivel chair and uttering "You're in my way" in his usual deadpan voice.
A few more, from "Hereafter":
Superman: You're insane. Vandal Savage: True, but that doesn't mean I'm not good company. Say, you wanna come over to my house? Superman:[stares at him] Vandal Savage: Like you've got something better to do.
Just after, Savage reveals exactly how the destroyed the world and personally killed theJustice League, there's a tense moment where it seems Superman will try (in vain) to kill him for what he's done. After he decides not to even bother, he asks Savage Now What? Savage's response is just gold:
Vandal Savage:(suddenly cheerful) Lunch?
Vandal Savage: Anyway, I've got issues - what with my destroying the Earth and all.
At the end of "The Savage Time" part 3:
Superman: Batman! It's really you! [bear hug] Batman:[deadpan] Am I missing something?
"Twilight" Parts 1 and 2 feature some of the best Batman one-liners around. The producers even joke about this fact during the commentary because they were just on a roll with his character during those episodes. For instance, there's a moment where Bruce and Diana first see the city where the "gods" live and this happens:
And just before that, Batman calmly tazes "the Flash" and explains, "The real Flash would have been too fast for that." He's one step ahead of Hagen the whole time.
"The Enemy Below" featured one of the best off-screen Batman intimidations ever:
Deadshot:[looks Wonder Woman up and down] ...Unless of course you can make it worth my while. Batman:[grabs him] I'll take it from here. [drags Deadshot away] Deadshot:You can't scare me, Batman. Batman: Let me give you one piece of advice... [says something to him as the camera pulls away] Deadshot:[in a panic] Ok! Ok! I'll tell! Wonder Woman: What did he say? Superman:You don't wanna know...
Deadshot: Gee, now why would a hired gun try to kill someone? Could it be that... someone paid me to do it?
Pretty much all of "Injustice for All", but there's one part that always has this troper in stitches:
Superman:[jacks Copperhead up against the wall] Copperhead... When are you gonna get some sense and tell me where Luthor is? Copperhead: Ooh. This must be the part where I get so scared, I spill my guts. Superman: I'm warning you... Copperhead: What're you gonna do, Boy Scout? Short my sheets? Give me a wedgie? [later, as Copperhead is taken back to his cell] Superman:[frustrated] How does Batman do it?
To make it even better, it then cuts directly to a captured Batman seducing one of his captors.
Copperhead, poor poor Copperhead. He seemed so confident in "Injustice for All". When we see him later? Not so much.
Copperhead: It was judgement day! And we got sent to the bad place! THE BAD PLACE!!!
"Aha! As I suspected: thirty-two flavors!" (The Question, "Grudge Match")
"Question the plan at your peril! ... Any questions?"
"Watch your step, my evil minion. You presume too much! One of these days, you'll go too far. "
Another great moment
The Flash: (actually Lex Luthor in Flash's body)" Well, if nothing else, I can find out the Flash's secret identity. ''[takes off mask]' ...I have no idea who this is."
"Just be careful with my head. It's where I keep all my one-liners."
Damnit, "The Great Brain Robbery" IS one episode-length CMOF. Especially because it cements the Super Friends-ish flavor that the final season had for most of its duration, though in a much better way than Hanna-Barbera used to do. The icing on the cake has to go to Lex Luthor, as the Flash, inadvertently discovering Green Lantern's weakness. I'm not telling this one, it must be seen to be believed. Here.
One more from the same episode, this one from Bizarro, questioning Flash in Luthor's body:
Bizarro: "Ever since you plug into monkey's head, you act perfectly sane and rational. Am you Bizarro mommy?"
At the beginning of the episode, Sinestro expresses concerns about Luthor's leadership:
Sinestro: After Grodd tried to turn the world into apes, you can imagine how seriously we take something like that. What are you going to do, make everybody bald?
Hawkgirl, after a fair bit of expository dialogue between Luthor/Brainiac and Superman: "Less talking, more hitting!" ("Divided We Fall")
Batman storming a Starbucks to order coffee. ("Only a Dream")
In an attempt to stay awake, he turns the radio on to some pop song and punches the Batmobile's window out for some air. Could he have rolled the window down to save glass? Yes, but not BATMAN!
Even better, it might be a sing-song ad playing. "-hungry? Are you thirsty? Come to Jon's. Dine at Jon's."
"Diana is a remarkable woman, she's a valued friend. She's... standing Right Behind Me, isn't she?" ("The Once and Future Thing, Part 1")
Speaking of the Flash, this line from "The Brave and the Bold":
[To Green Lantern, after describing an encounter with Solovar] "Hey, we've both got a Martian's phone number on our speed-dial. I think I deserve the benefit of the doubt here."
Imagine Batman playing good cop to his future self.
Green Lantern: Everything's relative.
Superman: "Now, this boy Kara likes so much...does he have a name?" Cue distressed looks on Green Lantern and Green Arrow's faces. Just in case you don't know, said boy is Brainiac 5. ("Far From Home")
From earlier in the episode, Supergirl and her future boyfriend are introduced to each other.
Brainiac 5: I'm sure this must be disorienting for you. My name is...
The episode "Flash and Substance" is terrific, not only does it feature the aforementioned Flash and Batman, but also Orion, who is even more Comically Serious than Batman (which is saying something). And the scene where Flash interrogates the Trickster was probably the funniest thing ever on the show. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, too.
Flash: James, you're off your meds, aren't you? Trickster: Better off without 'em. Take 'em if I start feeling down. Flash: You know that's not how the medicine works. You're not well! Trickster: I'm fine. You wanna throw some darts? Flash: No, listen, James, you're wearing the suit again. Trickster: I am? [Looks down at costume] Well what do you know? Flash: Here's the deal, buddy. Tell me where those guys went, and I'll come see you in the hospital. We'll play darts! The soft kind. Trickster:[smiles widely] Okay, they're gonna ambush you at the Flash Museum. Flash: See? That's all we needed! [to Batman and Orion] Come on, we better get over there. Orion: What about your enemy? Flash: Oh, right. Dude, as soon as you finish your drink, turn yourself in. Trickster:[raises mug] Got me again, Flash!
The Trickster is made of CMOF. Like his conversation with the other three Flash villains Rogues in that episode.
Mirror Master: Here we are, the hardest men in town and we all have something in common. Trickster:Bilateral symmetry?
The following one-sided conversation between Batman and Orion in the same episode:
Orion: I can't believe you let that buffoon manipulate you. You'd never see me at one of these museum openings.
[Batman gives him a "you just volunteered" stare]
Orion: ...It's not black tie, is it?
The continuation of the "hardest men in town" conversation above:
Waitress:What'll it be, boys? Captain Boomerang: Arnold Palmernote iced tea with lemonade. Trickster: Cherry Cola. Mirror Master: Decaf soy latte. Captain Cold: Milk. (Others stare at him] Captain Cold:[sheepishly] My ulcer's been acting up.
And he says "Milk" like he's hoping if he sounds gruff enough nobody will notice.
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!
Linda Park: When we come back, I'll try to get with him... Get to him... For an interview... Are we off? Geez. He's a total babe. Like the entire track team at once. I can't believe you're not into him, Marla. Marla:Okay... Now you're off.[Linda slaps a paper on her face in embarrassment]
The Flash, stuck on a flying, giant, spinning boomerang, to Captain Boomerang, who was watching him on it: "I swear, when I get out of this I'm gonna find you and hurl all over you!"
Most of Skeets' lines in "The Greatest Story Never Told", but especially when Booster Gold starts ragging on himself and even Skeets' constant stream of encouraging sycophancy finally gives out: "I got nothin'."
The running people's reaction to the projected red traffic light.
"Wild Cards", where we get the Joker as his own twisted version of Shipper on Deck:
Also, the Vegas casinos are emptied...except for one old woman playing the slots;
Joker: Ma'am? Ma'am? Aren't you worried?
Old woman: About what? This thing's bound to pay off sooner or later.
Joker: Man, I love this town!
That leads to a demented Brick Joke at the very end of the episode. "JACKPOT!"
The Joker's subdued "Huh" after Flash runs the last bomb into the desert while it's exploding.
Joker's reaction to seeing Harley Quinn socking Batman in the jaw after she sees Joker being close to Ace.
Joker [surprised]: Wow, didn't see that coming.
Hal Jordan is in less than half of one episode ("The Once and Future Thing, Part II"), but still manages to get a moment in:
John Stewart: Enid Clinton, we've got— [The past is altered mid-sentence, resulting in Hal Jordan being the Green Lantern] Hal Jordan: —business with your husband. [to everyone else]What? Hal Jordan. Another time shift. I'm up to speed. Carry on. Terry: O-kay, I'm starting to get a migraine.
And then when Hal Jordan changed back to John Stewart:
Static: Make up your mind!
A good chunk of the episode "The Once and Future Thing" could probably qualify. There's also another bit between Batman and Old Man Bruce where present-day Bats decides to go out and find information the more direct way.
Terry: It's not going to work, you don't know your way around here. A lot of things have changed.
Batman: Are criminals still superstitious and cowardly?
Old Bruce: Yup.
Batman: Good enough for me.
There's also when Batman meets his older self.
Terry: Batman, Bruce Wayne. Bruce Wayne, Batman. Or have you met?
Both Bruce Waynes: Not now!
Terry: Great. What was it called? Stereo?
There's an absolutely golden moment where Chronos, having discovered that Chucko was selling information to Batman, drops him back in the age of the dinosaurs. Chucko merely scoffs and declares he can easily defeat the dinosaurs with his weapons. Cue meteor bursting through the clouds.
Static: Shayera was one cranky pregnant lady. Alhough to be fair, if I had laid an egg that size...
This troper likes "Clash" not only for the awesome fight scenes but a couple of hilarious moments from Mr. Comically Serious himself, Batman:
Batman: You were a little hard on the Boy Scout, don't you think? Superman: I thought I was the Boy Scout. Batman: I did too, 'til I met Captain Marvel. Superman: Why are you—why is everyone defending him? Batman: We like him. He's... sunny.
As well as this:
Batman: What did these guys want anyway? Superman: To take over the world. Or rob banks. I forget.
At the beginning of "Double Date" you have two mooks waiting outside their boss's mansion, and this bit of dialogue comes up:
Cecil: But how come when I make the scones, they don't got that good flavor like yours, Tony? Tony:(smacks Cecil's head) Do I have to tell you again how you gotta add the orange zest, Cecil? You gonna make me give you the recipe again, huh? You're killing me here, Cecil! Killing me!
Also from "Double Date", when Black Canary and Green Arrow are riding on a motorcycle over a train track:
Green Arrow: Are we dead yet?
Black Canary: No.
Green Arrow: (voice getting shakier) Are we dead yet?
Black Canary: Look, if we die, I promise I'll let you know!
Black Canary's reaction for when she experiences this is but one word: "Whoops."
Warhawk, seeing Green Lantern at the end of the "The Once and Future Thing, Part I": "Dad?"
"Panic in the Sky": when Lex Luthor takes control of the JL's satellite and fires its main gun at the Earth, the founding Leaguers agree to turn themselves in to the US government as a show of faith. Batman, however, decides to follow a separate lead.
Soldier: Where's Batman? Flash: Running late. The Batmobile, it lost a wheel. The Joker got away. [Beat] That's what I heard.
Vigilante is ripe with Crowning Moments period (which should come to no surprise considering who voices him) but one of his funniest moments is in "Hunter's Moon" note The episode is called "Mystery in Space" if you're looking on Netflix when he nabs the Thanagarian's ship in an attempt to rescue Vixen and Shayera.
Vigilante:Consarned, dang-blasted, horse-thievin', alien control panel which can't nobody work proper![flies beneath Vixen, who is free-falling] I'M COMIN', DARLIN'! YEEEEEEE-HAW!
A little while later, while Vixen and Paran Dul's fight in the back of the ship makes things a bit rocky:
Vigilante: Y'both mind!? Student driver up here!
In "Patriot Act", several of the non-superpowered League members are fighting a supersoldier (the mutated Gen. Wade Eiling) that keeps demanding that Superman come to fight him. Green Arrow, who has been requesting backup from the Watchtower throughout the whole fight, receives word that reinforcements are on the way. This leads to the following:
Green Arrow:[to Eiling] Well you wanted Superman? Now you got- [two people teleport in] ...the Crimson Avenger and my ex-sidekick. Speedy:[having just teleported in] Ex-partner! Green Arrow: Speedy, we gotta' do this now?
After Eiling effortlessly swats the Avenger and starts advancing:
Eiling: You spoiled, rich little twerp! Green Arrow:[while pelting him with arrows, including one stolen from Speedy's quiver] I think he means me. Speedy:[likewise, deadpan] Oh. For a second, I was all mad.
Kid!Batman: (seeing the others fly off) It's not a race!
When Kid!Wondy needs to rally the kids:
Girl: You can't tell us what to do! You're not our mom!
Wondy: No, but I promise you, we will find your moms. And I'm gonna tell!
Green Lantern: (to Batman) Man, your girlfriend sure is bossy.
Batman: Shut up!
If you really want a laugh, just imagine the adult versions of Green Lantern, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman saying those really kid-ish lines.
When Green Lantern is captured and brought before Despero in "Hearts and Minds":
GL: Despero, I presume. Whole Crowd: DESPERO IS ALL! GL: With a backup group, no less.
From "The Greatest Story Never Told", apparently Booster Gold watched too much Star Trek:
Booster Gold: Energize!
Watchtower Tech: Doofus.
The scene in "The Ties That Bind" where Flash first convinces Barda and Mr. Miracle to let him help them is this an a Crowning Moment of Funny. It's especially adorable how he punctuates it all with "Friends?"
Giving Barda the flower was the icing on top.
"Robots! I love smashing robots!"
In "The Terror Beyond," after Aquaman brings him to Fate's tower, Inza presents Solomon Grundy with some treats. He looks ready to eat, but actually hesitates out of politeness.
Inza: It's okay. Take as many as you want. (Grundy starts pigging out)
Afterwards, Doctor Fate arrives:
Doctor Fate: I am Doctor Fate. Grundy:(swallowing) Girl gave Grundy the cookies!
In "Task Force X," after Flagg's team has gotten through Watchtower security.
Deadshot: I thought he was gonna wet himself when you mentioned the Martian. He couldn't let us through fast enough. Plastique: That was nothin'. I almost lost it when this bonehead set off the metal detector. Captain Boomerang: 75 cents is 75 cents. I'm supposed to throw away money?
And of course there's Deadshot trolling Green Lantern by asking him if he could get Hawkgirl's autograph for him.
Also, before all that, Col. Flagg pop-quizzing Plastique on their mission:
Rick Flagg: OK, Plastique. You're setting the charge, and Superman walks in the room... Plastique:(understandably startled) You said he wouldn't be there! Rick Flagg: Last minute change in the duty roster. Superman's got the drop on you. What do you do? Plastique: ...Before or after I change my shorts?
In "The Ties that Bind," Virman Vundabar attempts to win over Kalibak with cake. And Kalibak is actually tempted.
Amidst all the heaviness and horror of "A Better World", they sneak one in in the Arkham Asylum scene. When the Justice League pass by Wesker and his doll Mr. Scarface, the doll's the one who's been lobotomized.
Also doubles as a Fridge Horror moment if you stop and think about it...
Batman's are bigger than Amanda Waller's. Made more hilarious by Batman's dickish grin while he says it.
Superman releases his inner child in "Comfort and Joy". He still believes in Santa (which, admittedly, may be justified), wants to be the one to plug in the Christmas tree, and attempts to peek into his wrapped presents using X-ray vision, only to be foiled by Ma and Pa Kent wrapping them in lead foil. The juxtaposition with his normal, serious self is hilarious.
There is something oddly funny with Superman charging at Brainiac through his force field, only to have the field bounce him back like a stretched rubber band when he is only a couple meters from reaching the villain. Bonus Points for landing next to Darkseid.
The beginning of "The Cat and the Canary" Wild Cat is having trouble with some common thugs, and one of them is watching a fight on his laptop after WC was beaten. The commentary from the laptop fits Black Canary appearing and beating up the thugs quite well. Also counts as a CMoA.
In "Hereafter", Wonder Woman blocks Weather Wizard's lightning with her metal braces. The Flash's reaction?
The interaction between Stargirl and Warlord in "Chaos at the Earth's Core", as they both look over the ragtag group that's gathered to fight the local tyrant.
Stargirl: Geeze, you call that an army?
Warlord: Most of these folks have lost everything to Deimos. So, you know, feel free to dump on them.
The opening, set in Japan where Supergirl is beating up a giant mutant turtle, has Stargirl grumbling about the other heroine "stealing her thunder" and getting her shin kicked by a fangirl. Stargirl tries to score some points by pointing out that her stepdad, Stripe, drives a mecha, but the fangirl just scoffs: "Mecha so last year."
At the begining of the finale, we have Lex Luthor commanding the Legion of Doom to build another device. We get this gem.
Lex: Sinestro, don't forget the floor, I want radiation shielding from every direction. Rampage... [Loud shaking noise, cut to Bizarro trying to put a square box into a round plug] ...help Bizarro.
At the very end of it all, the Legion of Doom had just assisted the Justice League to defeat the forces of Apokalips. When the Legion learn they're about to be arrested, Atomic Skull insists they should be compensated for helping them. Batman reluctantly agrees...
Batman: Five minute head start. Atomic Skull: Five minutes? Are you kidding? Wonder Woman: Four minutes, fifty seconds. [The Legion starts running, though Giganta steals a kiss from Flash before leaving. As the League prepares to pursue, Bats and Supes have a final Odd Couple moment.] Superman: A head start? You're getting soft in your old age. Batman: Don't you have a tall building to go leap? Wonder Woman: And so, the adventure continues... [Final Curtain Call to end the series.]
The Doomsday Sanction had a meeting between the Founding Seven discussing Cadmus. Batman mentions that he assigned The Question to gathering information on the organization. This elicits a Collective Groan from the rest.
Flash: Not that nutjob!
The Balance, Hermes, Messenger of the Gods, you'd think he'd be experienced enough not to screw up which scroll he gives to who.
Wonder Woman (Reading from scroll) For a good time, call Podenemus?
Hermes Wrong scroll. I think I got a shot, it's her cell number.
From the same episode, when Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl are in Hades, some demons see Hawkgirl's wings, and are instantly hesitant to fight her. She plays this for all it's worth, claiming to be an angel, and scaring the demons away.
