    Trailers 

  • Martin Stein is utterly unimpressed with the team that's been assembled, culminating in:
    Stein: And a billionaire who has more tech than he clearly knows what to do with.
    Ray: I know exactly what to do with it. [arm rocket briefly goes off] Most of the time.
  • Snart's anguished reaction to Ray Tempting Fate: "Why did you say that?"
  • The sheer disbelief Sara and Stein react with to Ray telling them he discovered how to shrink.
    Sara: So...you weren't dead?
    Ray: [completely jovial] Nope!
    Stein: You were just...small?
    Ray: [mood falters] You don't believe me?
    Stein: [staring and shaking his head as if he thinks Ray is a complete lunatic]
    • Doubly hilarious when you remember that Sara herself is Back from the Dead and Stein can't really talk on being believable concerning his power set.
  • Rip Hunter shows that Arthur Darvill is going to be just as funny as he was on Doctor Who:
    Rip: Rip Hunter, I'm from East London. [beat] Oh, and the future.
  • After Captain Cold's smug attitude throughout his screentime on The Flash, it's quite satisfying to see his utterly gobsmacked expression at Rip Hunter's invisible plane.
  • Jax made a comment on 1970's fashion:
    Jax: People actually wore this crap!?
  • During a massive Bar Brawl:
    Heat Wave: I LOVE THE SEVENTIES!
  • In the 'Change History' trailer, Rip tells off Sara like an angry parent for bringing so many knives.
    Rip: I specifically said no weapons!
  • The text in the "Humanity's Last Hope" promo:
    "THEY ARE HUMANITY'S LAST HOPE"
    "YOU CAN THANK US LATER"
  • In Heatwave's trailer:
    Heatwave: (to Cold) Can I burn some stuff now?
    Cold: I wish you would.
    • Another one liner from Rip Hunter from the same trailer:
    Rip Hunter: You're not nearly as thick as people say.
    Heatwave: "Thick"? Does that mean stupid?

Season 1

    Episode 1 - Pilot Part 1 
  • While Carter and Kendra are having an argument over flying, Rip has this golden line:
    Rip: Have you two considered couples counseling? I heard it's popular in this century.
  • Snart is naturally thrown to find himself waking up on the roof with all these people.
    Snart: Stein? What are you doing here?
    Stein: I'm as ignorant as you are...for once.
  • The somewhat too "trying-to-be-cool" way Rip mentions that he's from East London "and THE FUTURE"
  • Jax refuses to meet with Rip again and take part in the mission...so Stein drugs him.
    • As they're getting onto the ship for the first time, Stein gets Mick's help to carry the (still unconscious) Jax onto the ship...and Mick actually goes through with it.
    • Mick wants some of Stein's roofie.
    Stein: I did not roofie him!
    Mick: Oh, I ain't judging.
  • Hunter says that the mission does not require the skillset of Sara, Cold, or Heatwave.
    Cold: Meaning you don't need anyone killed, maimed, or robbed.
    Rip: Exactly.
  • Rip being very nonchalant about the side-effects of time travel.
    Rip: Some of you might experience some slight discomfort. In very rare instances, there will be some...uh...bleeding from the eyeballs.
  • On the wisdom of leaving Snart and Mick on the ship:
    Ray: You sure it's a good idea to leave these two unsupervised on a time machine?
  • Stein is surprised Jax wants to stay on the ship.
    Stein: You want to stay with these three?
    Jax: They didn't drug me!
    Stein: Point taken.
  • When they're in the 70's, Sara, Jax, Mick, and Snart are watching TV on the ship.
    Mick: Why does this stupid TV only show reruns?
    Sara: [opens her mouth]
    Jax: Don't even bother trying to explain.
  • Snart keeps on giving Sara heart eyes whenever she suggests things like "drinking" or "fighting."
    • Sara, Snart and Mick being all buddy buddy so quickly alone is pretty funny.
    • Sara, Cold and Heatwave decide to go out for "drinks" basically as soon as Rip leaves. Jax tries to go with them, but Cold quickly stops him.
    Cold: You're not quite ready to run with this crew. Sorry kid.
    • When Sara gets into a fight with a man who refuses to take "No" for an answer, Snart and Mick exchange a pleased expression, complete with Mick raising his eyebrows and smiling, as if saying "I like her!"
    • Heat Wave fulfills the bar fight cliches: hitting someone with a stool and dragging someone over the length of the bar.
      Mick: I LOVE the 70s!
    • The guy Mick hits with a stool? It's not even clear if he was part of the fight.
  • Ray was a student of Martin's. Martin, however, does not remember him, something Ray is deeply upset by.
  • The, for lack of a better term, Big Damn Heroes moment when Snart, Mick and Sara arrive back at the ship, ramming Chronos in the process:
    Snart: We go out for one lousy drink and you guys somehow manage to pick a fight with Boba Fett.
    • Followed by the moment when you realize this happened only because they obviously stole the car.
  • Mick's deeply philosophical answer to the question about why he and Snart became criminals:
    Mick: Because we hate work and we love money.
  • Kendra and Sara both punching Rip in the face for lying to the team.
    Rip: Will you people stop hitting me?!
    • The team actually gets on the same page when they're all pissed at Rip for lying.
    Mick: Give me one good reason why we shouldn't kill you.
    Stein: Ditto the arsonist.
  • The reason why Mick sticks around after Rip reveals his lies?
  • It's a bit hard to see due to the lighting, but when Snart and Mick are discussing whether to join the team, it looks like Snart is reading a COMIC BOOK. (the pages are glossy, seem to be red and black, and something is in a yellow text box in the corner)

    Episode 2 - Pilot Part 2 
  • Rip quickly learns the cons of having a criminal like Cold on the team.
    Rip: Actually I'm in charge in case any of you had forgotten.
  • The revelation that Stein was a pot-smoking hippie in his youth, has both Sara and Jax grinning wildly and the current stuffy professor fuming in indignation. You can see them, especially Jax, get big grins on hearing "Marty" offer to "spark a doobie".
  • The gang realize they have to get a special dagger.
    Rip: As for the dagger...
    Ray: You need someone to steal it.
    Snart: Okay, fine, whatever, I'll do it.
  • Stein worried about tempting his past self with "a sexy assassin from the future."
    Sara: Aw, you think I'm se—
    Stein: Do not finish that sentence.
  • Mick/Heat Wave's reaction to Stein blaming him for the mission going wrong, with him expressing an amusing sadness since he thought they were friends.
    • And before that, Mick actually enjoys Stein's bluff against the guards and calls him a special kind of crazy.
    • On a meta level, him grumbling "You're welcome, Norway" under his breath becomes one when you remember Dominic Purcell is of Norwegian descent.
  • Sara beats up Savage's thugs in the lab whilst stoned. She then wishes the scientists a lovely evening.
  • Mick's very casual reaction when telling Snart that it turned out they were stealing from Vandal's mansion.
  • Stein's complete infuriation at his younger self's arrogance, not at all like he is now.
  • Sara knocking the past Stein out with his bong.
    • And then stealing a roll of his pot on the way out.
  • At their first meeting of past!Stein, Sara starts flirting with him to help with their mission, which works very well. Present!Stein looks extremely weirded out about witnessing this happen right in front of him.

    Episode 3 - Blood Ties 

  • Rip wants Jax to fix the jump ship.
    Rip: You're a mechanic!
    Jax: Automechanic. (waves hands around) Spaceship.
  • Rip's not-quite Stealth Insult.
    Rip: Thank you, Mister Rory. You're not as thick as everyone says you are. [leaves]
    Rory: Thick...that means stupid, right?
  • Stein's reaction when Ray brings up the Titanic, as if Victor Garber is thinking "When will I live that down?"
  • Sara giving Rip advice on tactics from Ra's al Ghul.
    Sara: If you can't kill your enemy, weaken him. If you can't cut off his head, take his heart.
    Rip: Mr. al Ghul was quite the poet.
  • Snart and Rory offer their services to get at the bank.
    Rory: We know how to case banks. We're practically bankers.
    Snart: Except we take the money out.
  • Jax refuses to help Snart and Rory take the jump ship out.
    Jax: So if you want to shoot me, shoot me.
    Rory: (leaping from his seat excited) Can I shoot him?
    Snart: You've got a pair on you, kid. I respect that.
    Rory: So, no shooting...
    • What sells it is how Snart holds up his hand with the air of having to do this numerous times with Rory, who looks downright bummed to not shoot anyone.
  • When the team prepares to jump to the 80's, Ray makes a comment about parachute pants, causing Jax to ask what those are. Ray and Sara just exchange looks, as if daring each other to explain that fashion travesty to him.
  • A meta one is Sara saying that she's not much of a dancer, considering that Caity Lotz got her start as a backup dancer.

    Episode 4 - White Knights 

  • When Rip announces they are going to steal from the Pentagon, Ray gets excited and wants to dress as a G-man. Cut to him and Snart dressed as janitors.
  • The team's attempt to break into the Pentagon has ended in Kendra going nuts and slashing up soldiers, Firestorm electrocuted and flying out through the ceiling and Rory nearly setting the place on fire. Back on the ship...
    Ray: Instead of dwelling on what went wrong, let's focus on the positive...
    Rory: What are you talking about? It was awesome.
    Stein: In the same way tsunamis, earthquakes and other natural disasters are "awesome."
  • Ray loves the translator device that allows him to speak in Russian.
    Snart: Now you're annoying in multiple languages.
  • Snart getting the best one-liner yet:
    Snart: I guess I'll have to bone up on the ballet. Gideon: Bone me.
  • Snart's running gag of stealing the security clearance of beautiful women...as well as their wallets.
    Ray: Really? We're trying to save the world and you're lifting wallets?
    Snart: It's called multitasking.
    • Later, he swipes Valentina's key card while flirting with her. Ray's glad he didn't also take her wallet, only for Snart to proudly pull that out too.
  • Snart unable to resist the obvious line:
    Snart: Damn, that was cold even by a Russian's standards.
  • Valentina discovering who Snart is.
    Valentina: You work for the American government?
    Snart: I'm wanted by the American government, does that count?
  • Rip gets Rory to agree to fight Chronos with him by promising that he'll likely get to kill someone. When Druce shows up instead, Rory whines when Rip doesn't give the okay to kill him.
  • Snart calls Ray a boy scout, and Ray retorts that he's actually an Eagle Scout. Later, Ray quotes the boy scout motto when trying to convince Snart to save Valentina. Snart's face has to be seen to believed.
  • During their fight, Sara hits Kendra and causes her to stagger back. Kendra's response? Go full hawk-mode, run up to Sara, and kick her square in the chest.

    Episode 5 - Fail-Safe 
  • A Bratva captain says that if Rip's friends are in The Kushmar Gulag, then they must be "insane, ruthless animals." Cut to Ray, trying to give a friendly greeting to the other prisoners.
    Bratva Captain: If your friends are there, they must be insane, ruthless, animals.
    cuts to
    Ray: Hey. Howdy. How you doing?
  • Snart talking about breaking into the gulag:

  • While Ray's getting his ass kicked, Mick steals a lighter and just stares at the flame for the rest of the day.
  • When Ray woke up after being beaten up in the prison backyard, two of the guards were making bets on whether Ray is dead or alive.
  • Jax's reaction after covering 100 yards in less than 12 seconds in spite of his damaged ACL.
  • Rory's fantastic callback to his previous Rocky reference by telling his torturer that he won't go "Rocky 4 on his ass" because "Ivan Drago lives at the end of Rocky 4." Hilarious and badass.

     Episode 6 - Star City 2046 
  • Mick Rory considers the best reason for killing a gang boss and gaining his gang? The fur coat.
  • This line by Mick and Snart:
    Snart: It's like World War III out there!

  • Ray pouting over Felicity changing the name of the company to "Smoak" despite the fact he left it to her.
  • Stein got visibly annoyed when he hears Ray and Kendra spending quality time repairing the ship. Turns out that his irritation came from Jax's emotions thanks to the Psychic Link they shared.
    • The role has been switched when Jax found out that Stein has inadvertently encouraged Ray to ask Kendra out. Only this time, Jax sense guilt and panic from Stein.
    • Stein may consider himself wise and a "ladies man", but his attempts at helping were hilarious in how painfully awkward they were.
    • Stein's response when Ray says that it's like a high school drama:
    "I wouldn't know, I skipped 10th grade. (beat) And 11th."

     Episode 7 - Marooned

    "I'm sore because I was recruited for my unique ability to light things on fire, and now I'm locked in the one place where I can't light things on fire."
  • Ray doesn't have either a favourite colour or a favourite Beatle because it would be unfair to the others.
  • Space Ranger Stein and his daring escape.
  • Kendra effortlessly ripping off the chest plate of Ray's suit and tossing it aside so she could get him breathing again.

    Episode 8 - Night of the Hawk 

  • After Ray and Kendra settle in as newlyweds, Savage shows up as a friendly new neighbor with a tuna surprise. When they're on the Waverider giving their report, Ray is eating it in the background.
    Ray: Say what you will about Savage, but the man makes a mean casserole.
    • The sheer idea of Vandal Savage, one of the most deadly men to ever walk the Earth and ever will, making casserole for his new neighbors is utterly hilarious.
  • After Rip assigns everyone in the ship a role to play, Snart asks what he gets to do. Cue in dramatic music, and the next scene shows him and Rip in full FBI smock: black hat, black suit, and dark sunglasses - he finally got to dress up and pretend to be a government suit!
  • Stein is being nostalgic, reflecting of the 'idyllic times' of the past. Sara and Jax disagree, and Jax can't resist throwing out this line:
    Jax: I used to watch all these old horror movies with my mom, they all started off with places like this!
  • Stein pushes Sara a little too far with her cover identity, She twice reminds him she can keep a tortured man alive for days:

    • And, later, when he asks her for files:
    Sara: Literally. For days.
  • Sara befriending a fellow nurse, and showing her it's ok to be gay.

  • Sara and Kendra playing Life in 1958.
    Sara: Here you go, $10,000 salary.

    Snart: The ladies will be left behind.
    Jax: What about Ray?
    Snart: Like I said.
  • When Ray is asking Kendra if she wants anything from their apartment, he mentions a "lucky water vase", much to Stein's confusion.

    Snart: No litter, no street crime, no smog. How soon can we leave?
  • Gideon mentions that she can see the dreams of people onboard, and proves it by telling Sara that the previous night she had "a rollicking fantasy involving a young nurse."

    Jax: Am I the only one who can't feel their face?
    Ray: I can't feel my...I'd better not say.
  • Rip tells the gang they have to stay on the ship but they want to experience the Old West.
    Sara: Come on, what can happen?

  • Ray attempting to understand how Ret Gone works:

    Snart: No.
  • Sara breaks up a fight between Young!Sara and Young!Rory after the former slaps the latter.
    Sara: You! Hands to yourself. And next time hit with a flat palm. And you! She's not your type!
  • Sara and Kendra, disguised as nurses, are attempting to snatch newborn Leonard Snart from the hospital nursery.
    Sara: Alright, this is just like any other mission. The mark might be a newborn, but it might as well be a diamond or a microchip.
    Kendra: You know, you're starting to sound like Snart.
    Sara: (look of disgust) Ugh.
    Kendra: Okay, which one is Snart?
    Sara: Look for the one with horns.
    Kendra: Found him.
    Sara: Great. Grab him. Let's go.
    Kendra: (High pitched cutesy voice) Hello baby Snart! Ooo, look at you! (Starts cooing at him.)
    Sara: Kendra, come on. We don't have time for this.
    Kendra: Look!
    Sara: (Also high pitched cutesy voice) Aww, look at those cheeks! You're the cutest little baby in the world!
  • Snart tries to give them a warning:
    Snart: I know I make a gorgeous baby, but I should warn you: You’ll have your hands full.
  • When Sara and Kendra go into the nursery all the babies are in pink or blue blankets...except Baby Snart, who is in a pitch black blanket.
  • A Quentin from before any of the Arrowverse's weirdness started is thrown onto a time-traveling ship by an older version of his daughter. He asks if there are Martians coming next (probably better not to tell him about a certain other Earth).
  • Rip and Rory (badly) impersonate doctors to kidnap Stein at his birth. (Like Rory forgetting no cell phones and mixing up pre and post natal check ups). It works. Stein lampshades this later by asking how his parents gave him up so easily.
    Ray: Well, the 1950's were a different time. I should know, I lived there for a while.

    Rory: A killer, a klepto and a pyro?
    Rip: Bingo.
  • Snart and Rory decide to get at Savage by "playing it like Chicago." This involves Rory tripping Rip without any warning to distract the guards. Rip berates them afterward.

    Rip: I could have been killed!
    Rory: Never said it worked perfectly.
  • Kendra tells Sara to get the bracelet off Cassandra.
    Sara: Are you seriously jewelry shopping now?

    Mick: He reincarnates!

  • When soldiers race in to arrest the team, Mick is just sitting calmly nursing an empty bottle when they tell him he's under arrest.
    Rory: If I had a nickel for every time I heard that...
  • There is something kind of funny (and heartwarming) that Sara and Snart are shown playing cards while waiting to hear back on the Savage Arrest. Sara is on a bed, Snart is kneeling next to it, and it has this casual air of "we do this a lot". Including Sara warning Snart not to distract her in a very familiar way.

    • A bit earlier, when they say they're going to give their relationship a fresh try: "I give it three months, tops."
  • Jax has trouble using the transmutating power when his life isn't threatened. Stein responds, "I never thought I'd say this, but I think we need a Nazi."

    Past Mick: I look like an idiot.
  • Sara sleeps with the Queen of France less than an hour before she's supposed to conceive Louis XIV, who will usher in a golden age for France.
    Rip: [with regards to what they did wrong] As in, seducing the Queen of France...
    Sara: She seduced me.
    • The cuts between the Legends fighting a pitched battle and Sara and Queen Anne's passionate embraces is rather funny as well.
  • When King Louis XIII asks who the Legends are, a half-dressed Sara tells him "I believe the queen is waiting for you in her bedroom."
    Jax: And I'll bet she's all warmed up for you, too. (winks at Sara)
    • Of course Jax had to be the one to talk about something being "warmed up."
  • Mick says that at least he didn't screw up this time. Rip angrily pulls out of his hat a golden necklace he obviously snatched.
    Mick: Stealing's not screwing up.
  • Albert Einstein's Insistent Terminology regarding "atomic bomb" versus the more technically accurate "nuclear bomb".
  • Stein is delighted that they're going to meet Albert Einstein. Much to his chagrin, he turns out to be a Dirty Old Man when they see him. Mick, on the other hand...
    Mick: Oh, I like him. He's a pig.
    • Later, when they're trying to save him from his would-be kidnappers, and he refuses to cooperate, Stein just goes for the easiest route:
    Stein: For every action...(punches Einstein out) there's an equal and opposite reaction.
  • Crossing over with a Moment of Awesome, Mick Rory happily joining the battle to defeat the German minions and help retrieve Mileva plus capture Darhk's nuke:
    Mick: [firing heat gun flamethrower] I love roasting Nazis!
  • Oliver's reason for not wanting to help find the other Legends? He has no time for time travel.
  • Mick piloting the Waverider and bringing Nate, a historian and first time time traveler, with him:
    Nate: I can't believe this. We're about to travel through time!
    Mick: Did I tell you about the side effects?
    [the Waverider accelerates; Nate gets pushed back into his seat]
    Nate: [slightly muffled] What side effects?!
  • Ray running away from a T-Rex. Also the brief shot of a newspaper wondering if fossil evidence of a "Jurassic Man" is a hoax.
  • Sara is stuck in Salem, about to be hanged as a witch for "corrupting" the local women.
    Sara: In my defense, they were happily corrupted. [winks at a girl]
  • Stein and Jax pass themselves off as wizards in Medieval times, partly through Jax passing off his smartphone as a "magic mirror."

    Episode 2 - The Justice Society of America 
  • A short dialogue between Stein and Jax in their Firestorm mode when they're dodging Star Girl's laser blasts.
    Stein: She's trying to kill us!
  • The JSA assume Stein is the leader as the eldest. The rest of the Legends give "oh, are you kidding me?" reactions.
  • One of the Nazis chastises Ray for not doing the "Heil Hitler" salute. Ray tries to make up an excuse, but the guy insists.
    Nazi: Heil Hitler.
    Ray: (reluctantly raising the hand) H...H...Aw, hell. (punches the guy out)
  • It just seems that the team getting into a Bar Brawl will become a Running Gag, pity that the Justice Society shows up to spoil it before it escalates.
  • The JSA are totally unfazed at the high-tech setup of the Waverider.
    Stein: What's important is that we stop arguing.
    Hourman: Does your team ever stop arguing?
    Stein: Fair point.
  • When it's pointed out that Max Lorenz is a good deal taller than Stein, Sara crouches a bit to make him look taller.
  • Nate tries to explain the plan using the Waverider's computer, then has to sheepishly ask for someone who knows how to use it.
  • The difference between an actual team and whatever the Legends are.
    Ray: They always agree. We can't even agree on whose turn it is to cook dinner.
    Sara: Not it.

    Episode 3 - Shogun 
  • This exchange:
    Stein: Where are Dr. Palmer and Dr. Heywood?
    Sara: Did you check out the window?
    Stein: What?
  • Nate's practically squeeing over his Steel form, and sparring with Ray while Jax cheers like he's watching wrestling.
    • And just as Sara is assuring Amaya that they are professionals and they know what they're doing, they hear the sounds of Ray shooting at Nate and walk in to find them acting like a couple of kids.
    Amaya: Professionals?
    Sara: Ish.
  • Mick losing patience with Gideon's detailed descriptions of the Waverider's damage, and demands that the A.I. just tell them they're screwed. Gideon complies in the most literally way.
  • Nate's dazed evaluation when he crash lands into Feudal Japan:
    Nate: Edo period. I'm in 17th century Japan. That's cool. [faints into crater he made]
  • Mick and Amaya's bantering:
    Amaya: (talking to Sara) How can you bring a thug on a rescue mission? (turns to Mick) I've known men like you. Men who take and prey on the weak.
    Mick: Listen, girly. I'm risking my neck for two morons who fell out of the ship. Why? 'Cause they'd do the same for me. Why are you on this ship?
    Amaya: 'Cause I'm a member of the Justice Society of America. It's my job to protect everyone.
    Mick: Except for me. Snuck up behind me and tried to slice my throat like a ninja.
    Mick: Tell that to Chuck Norris.
    Amaya: Who's that?
    Mick: And I'm the idiot.
  • Nate stands up to the Shogun's men on Masako's behalf, assuming his steel powers would activate. They don't.
    Nate: [wheezing from a blow] Can you just— one second? You caught me off guard. [deep breath] Okay, now come at me.
    [samurai hits him again with no trouble]
  • Sara's Call-Back to one of Felicity's moments in Arrow:
    Samurai: You are already defeated before you have even begun. I have been trained in the art of war by Shimura himself.
    Sara: League of Assassins, class of '09.
  • The attempted attack on the Shogun's palace.
    Ray: [perky] Hey, guys.
    Mick: Wrong way, haircut! [spins Ray around and pushes him forward]
    Ray: But what about my suit? [sees Tokugawa in it] We can get it later! [runs post-haste]
  • The team is understandably confused as to how Tokugawa got Ray's suit.
    Sara: How does the Shogun even know how to operate your suit?
    Ray: I designed it so that an idiot could use it.
    Mick: An idiot does.
  • When Ray is down because he knows he has to destroy his suit, Masako's father tells him a story about his son's wonderful armor, and how he would much rather have his son back than the armor.
  • Mick is "really" happy to see ninjas up close in Tokugawa-era Japan.
  • The Cold Open has Mick looking for a knife when he finds Amaya's dagger at his throat:
    Mick: Oh...there's one. Look, if this is about me taking all the mayonnaise, you might be slightly overreacting.
  • It's not given much attention, but the look on Nate's face when Masako talks about how wise Master Yoda is without realizing what she's talking about.
  • Mick's awestruck, elated reaction when Amaya gives him a shuriken for his proof that he "met" ninjas.

    Episode 4 - Abominations 
  • Mick uses his gun to torch the time ship.
    Mick: What next?
    Stein: Don't you think that's enough incineration for one day, Mr. Rory?
    Mick: No, I do not, Professor!
  • Ray misses his team's fight with Confederate zombies because he took a pee break.
  • Ultra logical and realistic Professor Stein's secret phobia of brain-eating zombies.
    Stein: [To Ray] This is a nightmare! If Mr. Rory's intention is to eat our brains, can you imagine the feast we'll provide him given our combined intellects!
    [...]
    Stein: [sees Ray knocked unconscious] No, Raymond, don't be dead. On the other hand, if you are dead...please stay dead.
    [...]
    Stein: [prepping himself to administer vaccine] Okay, Martin. Just do what they did in those zombie movies...that you never had the courage to watch.
  • Extremely brief, but Jax's expression of disbelief when Mr. Collins refuses to lend him some weapons to help him fight off the zombies. One would think he'd appreciate his life more than his pride as a slave owner.
  • Nate's choice of insults while leading the zombies away from the Union camp.
    Nate: Come and get me, you ugly freaks! That's it! Follow me, you big dummies!
    • General Grant's comment on it:
    • And the crowner, when he comes out of the pile, all covered in zombie guts.
  • When zombified Mick lunges at Stein just before Ray's vaccine takes effect.
    Mick:' [wide-eyed with shock] Professor, what's going on? Was I just trying to kiss you?

    Episode 5 - Compromised 
  • The sight of Darhk in a 1987 suit straight out of Miami Vice is just damn funny.
  • When the DEA busts the drug deal and gunfire rips around him, Darhk just gives a reaction of "ugh, this again?"
    • Then annoyed when Reverse-Flash races in to take everyone down.
  • For a man so thrilled with time travel, it's humorous that Martin doesn't know who Doc Brown is.
  • Ray's godawful attempts at being like Snart, including failure at Rebel Relaxation, stealing a handful of Ronald Reagan's jellybeans, and bringing apple slices to a stakeout with Mick.
    Mick: (watching Ray pose with the cold gun) What are you doing?
    Ray: Trying to be cool.
    Mick: Maybe this was a bad idea...
    • An Epic Fail moment when Ray accidentally crossed streams with the Cold Gun and Mick's Heat Gun.
    Mick: What did I say about crossing streams!?
    Ray: But you said that we don't follow rules!
    Mick: That's the one rule we follow!
  • When Darhk is meeting his KGB contact:
    "It is Boris, isn't it? Or is it Igor? I find it's always one or the other with you KGB agents."
  • Mick really wants to punch out Young!Martin.
    Young!Martin: Oh, God, I'm too young to die! I'm too brilliant to die!
    Stein: Could one of you shut me up?!
    Mick: Gladly (Ray restrains him punching Young!Martin)
  • Sara's priceless "ugh, this again" expression when the two Steins start arguing.
  • Nate's panicked worrying that he may have killed Todd/Obsidian.
    Amaya: Why are you whispering?
    Nate: (still whispering) In case he's not dead, he could probably use the nap!
  • To vacate the state dinner, Mick brandishes his flamethrower. When the guests only react with confusion, Ray clears them out by politely announcing that there's a bomb.
  • When Ray isn't sure he'll be able to defuse the bomb in time, Mick decides to help himself to an eclair, so that he'll die happy. When Ray does manage it, Mick merely says "Good", and goes back to eating.
  • Darhk's reaction to seeing Obsidian's powers? Merely saying "Huh."
  • During the fight against Darhk's Ghosts and the KGB mooks, they keep trying to hit Nate with things, but since he's steeled up, it doesn't work. You'd think at least one of them would realize the futility.
    • At one point during the fight, Nate pauses to admire Mary Todd's hope chest. Then a Ghost is tossed on top of it.
    Nate: Oh, now you've gone too far!

     Episode 6 - Outlaw Country 
  • Stein tries to explain how The Flash time travels.
    Stein: The energy of the Speed Force grants the speedster chronokinesis, temporal manipulation.
    Rory: English, professor.
    Sara: It means that his running really fast lets him time travel.
    Rory: I’ll be in my room.
  • Nate's first time riding a horse. The animal appears to chase its tail before he can retake control of it.
    Nate: Guys, I think my horse is broken!
  • It wouldn't be an Old West episode without another Bar Brawl.
    • And they actual fail to start one, as Mick and Turnbull bond instead of fighting. Hex is the one to actual start it.
  • Gideon assesses Nate's injuries making his chances of survival 51 percent.
    Nate: Would it kill you to say "better than average," Gideon?
  • As Nate goes to stop the train with his body:
    Jax: What do you think?
    Ray: I think I liked him.
  • Nate adorably psyching himself up as the train bears down on him.
  • Turnbull's shocked reaction when Sara loses her hat and bandanna:
  • Mick and Amaya's scene when they lit up the fuse to blow up the cave:
    Mick: You have one whole minute to get out of here.
    Amaya: You mean we have one minute.
    Mick: That's what I said. [Turnbull's henchmen appear behind them] Should we tell them about the minute?
    Amaya: No.
    Mick: Good, I was hoping you were gonna say that.
  • Nate after he SUCCEEDS in stopping the train:
    Nate: Did you see that? Did you see that? Tell me you saw that.
    Jax: Yo, that was badass, dude.
    Ray: Totally badass. You alright?
    Nate: No, but I stopped a train!
    Jax: I think he's good.
    Ray: Whoo!
    Nate: [pumps his fists in the air] I STOPPED A TRAIN!

     Episode 7 - Invasion! 
  • Felicity and Cisco geeking out so hard upon first boarding the timeship.
  • Felicity is excited beyond belief to get to travel on a genuine spaceship/timeship – then she promptly pukes after her first time jump. And then again. And then again, on the return trip.
  • Felicity also endures a "linguistics mix" by the jump, meaning she spends the first few minutes babbling incoherently. This includes slapping a hand over her mouth and trying to yell an insult but it comes out gibberish.
  • Nate's new costume.
    Mick: You look like a star-spangled idiot.
  • Cisco and Felicity reacting to Amaya, Nate, and Mick getting captured by the MIB.
    Cisco: They're gonna get dragged off to a government facility and experimented on! Have you seen Stranger Things?
    Felicity: Okay, maybe you need less television.
  • Felicity and Cisco coming to the rescue.
    Felicity: Y'all call tech support?
    Mick: Great. Rescued by geeks.
  • After Barry tags all the Dominators the heroes are facing with pain devices, Felicity points out there are still quite a few ships (and therefore aliens) left, proclaiming "This looks like a job for Supergirl!"
    Barry: Thanks, Felicity. I'm not the least bit insulted.
    Felicity: Sorry! I meant Supergirl and Flash! This is totally a job for the both of you!...[[continued stress-babbling]]
  • Mick asks Sara's opinion of the new President.
    Mick: Is it just me or is she really hot?
    Sara: (Looks at Mick in annoyance, looks at the President, thinks about it) Yeah, she's hot.
    Mick nods in satisfaction that he's right.
  • Mick's last words to Kara after Cisco gives her a device that will allow her to contact and come to their Earth:
    Mick: Hey skirt. Call me. (cue Kara's totally confused look)
  • At the afterparty, Kara is in her civilian disguise.
    Felicity: [gleeful] It's like looking in a mirror!
    Ray: You know, it's funny...she looks a lot like my cousin.
  • After The Men in Black have antagonized, detained, and generally been dicks to the heroes in two time periods, Agent Smith comes back to "mop up" the aftermath of the fight and trade vague threats with them. Kara interrupts this to say that she's been talking to the new President; apparently, she (the President) was interested in the fact that Earth-38 has a government agency dedicated to dealing with superhumans. Madam President was also responsive to Kara's suggestion that Smith be Reassigned to Antarctica. Beware the Nice Ones, indeed.
    • The smug scrunched-up smiley face she gives him, looking like a teenager who just got away with something and she knows you can't do anything about it, sells it.
  • Kara suggests a group hug with Oliver and Barry, and Barry refuses to let Oliver get out of it. And his resigned look just as Barry and Kara pincer him.
  • Kara calls her new friends "Earth's Mightiest Heroes". Uh, Kara, you must be thinking of a different team...
  • When Stein tells Jax that he now has a daughter, Jax asks how this is possible. Stein says he doesn't think he needs to explain the process.
    • Jax's take on the situation. Stay classy, Jax.
    Jax: And he [younger Stein] followed your advice all the way to Pound Town?

     Episode 8 - The Chicago Way 
  • Thawne and Darhk offer their services to Al Capone. He responds by having his goons pull out their tommy guns much to their annoyance.
    Darhk: (exasperated sigh) You or me?
    Thawne: I've got...(effortlessly cleans out Capone's men)...this.
  • The response to the above?
    Capone: What do you freaks want?
    Darhk: To help! I thought I ma— (looks at Thawne) Did I not make that perfectly clear?
  • Sara having to literally play Team Mom to Ray and Nate who are acting like teenagers in the cargo bay, again. Made funnier by Jax, youngest person on the ship, come in having to play Team Dad.
  • Granted, it really isn't meant to be funny, but just the sight of Stein standing there and doing nothing while the cops haul Ness away to drown him (even after Sara said to stop that from happening).
  • Mick's opinion of Ray and Nate's efforts in 1927 thus far.
    (After hijacking Capone's booze truck)
    Amaya: Aren't you forgetting something? Nate and Ray?
    Mick Those idiots have done nothing but get in the way.
    (Camera change to reveal Nate and Ray standing right there beside the truck)
    Ray: Uh guys we're...we're standing right here.
  • Nate is outraged at Ray blindly trusting one of the most infamously corrupt police forces in history. "Did you or did you not see The Untouchables?"
  • After Sara's brief run-through of a speakeasy's rules, Stein orders a "club soda" with a conspicuous wink, thinking it's code for alcohol. The professor gets to feel clever for all of three seconds until the bartender gives him a glass of actual club soda, much to his disgust.
  • While Gideon is fixing Ness' brain damage from drowning, Nate asks her why she hasn't fixed Mick's brain. Her response:
    Gideon: (indignant scoff) Who says I haven't?
  • As the episode ends we get to see the Legion learning why Eobard had them go for so much trouble to get the amulet.
    Malcolm: It's an amulet in two pieces.
    Eobard: I knew you were more than just a pretty face, Malcolm.
    (Eobard puts both pieces together and a projection of a star map materializes.)
    Malcolm: (voice dripping with sarcasm) Wow, it's a portable planetarium.
    Eobard: (with a look of extreme annoyance) It's a compass.
    Darhk: Compasses generally find things.
  • What does the episode end on? A look at 1967 Los Angeles and of Rip Hunter as a primadonna American sounding film director making a movie based on his own time-traveling exploits.

     Episode 9 - Raiders Of The Lost Art 
  • The premise alone is golden, but the effects of it as just as good: Without Star Wars or Indiana Jones as inspirations, Ray and Nate spend the entire episode as worthless morons without a semblance of their respective expertise.
  • Mick tells Stein about his hallucinations.
    Mick: Wait! You can fix me! You're a doctor, right?
    Stein: ...of nuclear physics.
  • Mick later talks of using a mind probe on himself.
    Mick: I've got an idea.
    Stein: So this is a new milestone for you then.
  • The absolutely shameless Star Wars and Indiana Jones references.
    • Malcolm and Darhk use lasers for absolutely no reason.
    • The team gets stuck in a trash compactor and have to brace the sides. It's even possible Malcolm and Darhk invoked it on purpose (it's unclear if their memories were affected or not).
    • The whole episode is about finding part of the Spear of Destiny.
  • When Rip tells them that he gave the piece of the Spear to his propmaster George.
    Sara: Oh great. George Lucas has the Spear of Destiny!
  • Rip, a.k.a. "Phil Gasmer" freaking out for the majority of an episode. Like when he gets arrested, when he thinks the Legends are kidnapping him, when he drops his "Rip Hunter facade," and when he is about to be tortured.
  • While Rip is freaking out on the roof with the others trying to calm him down, we cut to an extremely mundane shot of Merlyn and Darhk standing in the elevator, cheery music and all.
  • Sara insists on calling the Spear of Destiny "the Holy Lance."
  • This little exchange between Merlyn and George Lucas:
    Darhk: Mr Lucas. You have something that we have traveled a very long way to find.
    Merlyn: A piece of the Spear of Destiny...WHERE IS IT?
  • Darhk threatening George Lucas's life:
    Darhk: I have one question for you, Mr. Lucas, and your life depends on answering me honestly. (beat) Where's the city dump?
  • When Sara and Jax need Mick and Stein, they find Stein about to cut Mick's skull open.
    Sara: What the hell are you doing?
    Stein: Brain surgery, what does it look like?
    [after a {{beat}}, Sara and Jax leave]
  • Jax attempting to engage Malcolm, a high ranking member of the League of Assassins in melee combat. Brave. Yes. Stupid? VERY. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Malcolm making a Wilhelm Scream when Vixen tosses him around.
  • Phil pretending to be Rip Hunter, nailing his personality perfectly, before taking out his revolver, only to find out it's a prop.
    Phil: Oh, Crap!.
  • Amaya looks over George Lucas' movies for one to watch.
    Amaya: Well, this one sounds cute; it's called Howard the Duck.
    Nate and Ray: NO!

     Episode 10 - The Legion of Doom 
  • Thawne states they have a clear advantage over the Legends:
    Darhk: Enlighten me.
    Thawne: (beat with a "Well, duh" expression) They're idiots.
    Rory: You're all idiots.
  • The Legends react to the news of Stein's daughter.
    Mick: What's the big deal? He didn't have a daughter. Now he does. Mazel Tov.
  • Merlyn and Darhk spend most of the episode constantly snarking at each other and reminding each other of their failures. Eobard gets exasperated with them.
    Thawne: This is what I get for relying on a wash out and a dead man.
  • Malcolm's grossed out reaction to having Rip's tooth put in his hand.
  • Poor Rip not only gets tortured and belittled by his captors, two of them seem to treat him as a sounding board.
    Darhk [while preparing his knives for torture]: You know, I’ll be honest with you – which I have to admit I don’t have that much practice with – I don’t like this situation. Not one bit. For one thing, Mr. Thawne has this habit of treating me like a henchman.
    • Later:
    Merlyn [striding into a room] : Who’s to say he won’t kill us anyway even after we get him his precious spear? [cuts to Rip nervously putting on a tie and suit] Oh, forget it, why am I asking you?
  • Rip is forced to access a bank vault, but is unable to provide a pass code. Malcolm and Damien respectively demands he leaves or stays, and the bank teller could only watch as Rip seemingly goes back and forth between the door and exit.
    • By the time the bank teller says he will call security, Rip perks up and exclaims how good that would be. His optimism vanishes after Damien kills the bank staff and starts threatening him again.
  • Even in a dramatic scene of Lilly confronting Stein on her real self, we get humor as Stein tries to explain that "when two younger selves love each other..."
    • Later, Jax finds Martin comforting himself with a cup of tea, and realizes he's spiked it.
    Jax: Is that whiskey?
    Martin: Of course not. It's brandy. What do you take me for, a sailor?
  • The one thing that stops two assassins with knives literally at each other's throat from continuing the fight: calling Thawne their boss and stating they're underlings. Or worse, henchmen.
  • As if the torture and threats to his life wasn't enough, Rip as Phil gets no respect. Malcolm shushes him like a child when he tries to protest getting tied up again, Damien is giving him condescending shoulder pats, and just when Rip is able to escape his ropes Eobard speeds in and ties him back up in seconds, complete with crossed arms and menacing glare.
    Thawne: Going somewhere?
    Rip: No!
    [Thawne glares silently]
    Rip: ...Yes. What did you expect me to do? Your partners just left me here all tied up!
    Thawne: Where are they?
    Rip: They…told me…not to tell you.
    [Thawne suddenly zooms right in front of him]
    Rip: The bank, they’re at the bank.

     Episode 11 - Turncoat 
  • Mick's take on the Opening Narration:
    Mick: Seriously, you idiots haven't figured this out by now? It all started when we blew up the time pigs - The Time Masters. Now history's all screwed up and it's up to us to unscrew it up, but half the time we screw things up even worse. So don't call us heroes, we're something else. We're legends. (beat) Who writes this crap, anyway?
  • The summary of the mission.
    Stein: Save Washington.
    Jax: And Rory.
    Stein: That was implied.
    [a few minutes later]
    Nate: Cool. Saving a president, a nation, and Christmas.
    Amaya: And Rory too.
    Nate: That was implied.
  • Amaya never saw The Wizard of Oz because of World War II. When Nate finds out he comments "Hitler ruins everything".
  • Mick isn't initially a fan of Washington.
    Mick: If Washington's so cool, why is he on the one dollar bill and Franklin is on the hundred? Now he's cool.
  • Mick bonding with George Washington, who says that Mick represents the best of what the new nation will be (Nate and Amaya can only roll their eyes at that). Later, Gideon reveals that in the new Close-Enough Timeline, there's now a statue of Mick in DC.
  • Rory tries to give Washington some pointers on the criminal justice system before Nate and Amaya stop him.
  • When Jax tries to get through to Rip by reminding him that he's "Captain Rip Hunter,", he receives this gem of a snarky response.
    Rip: The man who recruited a bunch of reject superheroes to *not* save his family?
  • It's kind of dark given what he'd just done to Sara, but when Rip goes to retrieve the piece of the Spear hidden inside his telescope, he does so very hesitantly and even flinches a little as he pulls it apart, no doubt expecting Jax to have booby-trapped it the way he did the floor.
  • While Sara is trying to talk Jax out of shooting Rip, Rip is just standing there bored, and absently scratches his head with the unspeakably valuable Spear fragment.

     Episode 12: Camelot/ 3000 
  • Black Comedy, sure, but: The Teaser to the episode sees Evil!Rip stop by where Dr. Midnite is holed up for his piece of the Spear, because the Time Masters said the fragments will be safer at the Vanishing Point. After Midnite reminds him that he said the Time Masters couldn't be trusted, Evil!Rip responds thusly:
    Evil!Rip: ...did I? Bollocks. So I did. (sigh) I suppose we're going to have to do this the hard way, then. (shoots Dr. Midnite)
  • Nate, who prides himself on his knowledge of history, spends the entire episode in either bafflement or denial that Camelot actually exists.
    • Nate makes a big point to the gang that medieval times are not like the movies and insists they all dress as historical research had people then. Everyone else dresses (in Nate's words) "like you're going to a Renaissance Faire" while he is appropriate to the time. When Guinevere looks at him, she thinks he's a leper.
  • Stein's denial that he stole something from the future—he only borrowed it/found it—and Mick's amusement of the same.
  • Stein's modesty:
    Jax: So all we need to do is somehow boost the brain power of whoever's wearing this.
    Stein: Or find someone with a preternaturally powerful brain.
    [beat]
    Jax: You mean...you.
    Stein: Fine, if you insist.
    • Followed by:
      Stein: Now all we need (looks over at Mick drinking a beer) is a test subject.
      Jax: (grinning) Someone who's mind is...pliable.
      Mick: (belching) What?
  • When told that he will get to control the 'evil army', Mick responds with this gem:
    Mick: (evil eager grin) Looks like its time to fulfill my destiny!
    Stein: God help us...
  • When Sara finds out that Star Girl is in love with Arthur, she gives a massive eye-roll and sits down, giving up on the conversation entirely.
    Sara: Your fake kingdom is a real soap opera.
  • Ray puts on his knight armor over his ATOM suit and ionizes his sword to make it more powerful because of course he did.
    Knight: It's like a saber...made of light!
    Ray: Yep! Just don't call it a lightsaber, though. Trademark issues.
  • Mick: "Admit it: My brain saved the day."
  • Sara snapping at some children to be quiet.
  • When Sara realizes she's Sir Lancelot, she almost kisses Guinevere before Ray interrupts. He then encourages her to go back and finish the job.
    Ray: You know...every good legend ends with a kiss.

     Episode 13: Land of the Lost 
  • After getting locked down, nearly being blown up and violently crashing into the Cretaceous Period, a livid Stein appears with his own theory of what happened:
    Stein: How many times must I tell you people? Mick Rory is not to pilot this ship!
  • The fact that Ray named his Cretaceous Period rival, a Mama Bear tyrannosaurus rex, Gertrude.
  • Jax and Sara realize there will be doppelgängers of the rest of the team in Rip's mind after defeating Evil Sara.
    Jax: If that's right then...
    Sara: Then there's more than just Bizarro Me on this ship.
    Jax: Like Evil Ray, Evil Stein.
    Sara: Evil Mick. I guess that's just Regular Mick, but still...
  • Sara's first thoughts on meeting a physical representation of Gideon?
    Sara: But you're like...I mean, you're really...
    Gideon: Human?
    Sara: I was going to say hot, but yeah, that too.
  • At the end, Nate decides he should probably break it off with Amaya to preserve history through her granddaughter Mari..but given she just not-so-subtly invited him to her room for sex, he'll start tomorrow.
  • A minor one that verges on sad, but the look on Amaya's face when Ray admits he ate one of Gertrude's eggs is hilarious.

     Episode 14: Moonshot 
  • After Commander Steel punches out Rip, he explains to the visiting press that Rip was a reporter who didn't have the right credentials. All of the reporters quickly hold up their own credentials in response.
  • The Legends in space need a distraction so mission control doesn't catch on. Stein's distraction? An offkey rendition of Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song". AKA, the "DAY-O!" song. Poor Mick even gets roped into it. And so did a few others at mission control.
    • On the Waverider, Sara and Rip share absolutely priceless "WTF?!" faces.
    • The explanation Stein gives to the nonplussed control centre is just as hilarious: "It's a British Tradition, sir!"
    • The story of Apollo 13 will now presumably be that something happened that caused the crew to black out and the LEM to jettison, but no one knows what it was because everyone in Mission Control was busy staring at the weird singing guy.
    • And then they replay the scene during the credits!
    • And then "Professor Stein" would later show up in a musical.
  • When Ray retrieves the piece of the Spear, awesome, uplifting music (Specifically Also sprach Zarathustra) is playing as he radios back to the team.
    Ray: Waverider Crew, we are now the proud owners of the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny.
    Sara: Copy.
    [beat]
    Ray: "Copy?" That's all I get is a copy? Guys, I'm standing on the friggin' Moon!
  • When Ray is stuck on the moon, he starts recording a somber Video Will, only to be interrupted by Thawne, still tied up in the background, asking him what the hell he's doing.
    • Of course, the Video Will is made less somber by the fact that it's blatantly plagiarized from The Martian (with the video glitching to censor it when Ray says that he's going to "science the s*** out of this"), and we know it's totally intentional on Ray's part because he had just said that now he knows how Matt Damon felt.

    Episode 15: Fellowship of the Spear 

  • The constant The Lord of the Rings references—from the blatant (Nate insisting on referring to the team as a fellowship) to the subtle (the whole episode is the first LotR book, compressed into an hour).
  • Firestorm transmutes the Legion's vault into jellybeans (but not jelly babies). Rip eats one.
  • Thawne is utterly gobsmacked when the Legends invade his base.
    Thawne: This isn't possible—they're not smart enough for this.
  • Mick mentions that the last piece of the spear is handy for getting to those "hard to reach places."
    Stein: Please tell me you haven't been using the Spear of Destiny as a back scratcher.
    Mick: Who said anything about my back?
    [Sara drops the piece]
    Stein: As Mister Rory has demonstrated, in the wrong hands the Spear can be put to truly horrific uses.
  • Ray shrinks down and flies into a cannon, preventing it from firing and making it move on its own. He then gives off a highpitched giggle, making two frightened German soldiers think he's a poltergeist.

    Episode 16: Doomworld 
  • Black Comedy at its finest: the Guest Star credit for Emily Brett Rickards pops up after Felicity dies.
  • Mick is slightly bummed when, during a bank robbery with Snart, once the cops show up, they immediately let them go.
  • We first see Rip in the Wavrider, bearded and crazy-eyed, painstakingly making the perfect cake.
  • Even with his memories gone, Nate manages to realize that something is wrong with the world...so he goes to Eobard Thawne for help.
    Thawne: You know what, I think you might be onto something. [to Snart] Take him outside, get him some fresh air. And kill him.
    Nate: Wait, me? Kill me?
  • When we see Ray in his house, he's essentially playing "Ray Palmer: The Game": a FPS (with the player character seemingly in the ATOM suit) using dwarf star energy to kill the aliens from "Invasion!"
  • The Running Gag in which anyone gets their memories back, they immediately punch Mick.
    Nate: (punches Mick) You son of a bitch!
    Mick: (unfazed) It works.
    • And then Ray punches him too.
    Mick: (annoyed) I deserved that.
    • And then Sara...
    Mick: One more person hits me, I'm gonna punch back!
  • When Amaya and Sara arrive to kill them...
    Ray I don't like the way they're looking at us.
    Mick: I like the way they're looking at us.
  • Nate tries to convince Amaya and Sara that they're all superheroes by steeling up. It fails.
    Mick: Knock it off you idiot! They used the spear to take away your powers!
  • Nate is living out of his mother's basement.
  • Gideon snaps Rip out of his alcohol/cake fugue and convinces him to try to reroute communications to boost his distress call.
    Rip: You're absolutely right! First: I am going to vomit. Second: let's do this.
  • When Darhk is about to kill Sara, he starts gloating about how he got his magic back and is invincible. No one else is impressed.
    Snart: Really? Now's the time for a bad guy monologue?
    [Sara escapes with Amaya]
    Snart: Damien, what did I tell you?
    Merlyn: For what it's worth, I thought it was a very good bad guy monologue.
  • Mick, of all people, recognizes Aramaic.
    Jax: How do you even know what Aramaic sounds like?
    Mick: The Passion of the Christ. Good movie.
    • Made even better when Jax shrugs in agreement.
  • When the Legends are reassembled, Thawne is more annoyed than threatened.
    Thawne: I should have wiped you from existence when I had the chance. Do you have any idea how infuriating it is to know that Merlyn was right?
  • The Running Gag about the high quality of Nate's mother's sandwiches.
    Jax: There's just one thing I don't understand. If Thawne made this world to punish us...then how are your mom's sandwiches so good?
  • The Legends, Thawne and the rest of the Legion of Doom have a Mêlée à Trois over the Spear of Destiny. Nate gets his hands on the spear and knocks Thawne across the room with it, after which he and Damien Darhk to almost high five, before Darhk promptly remembers he's the bad guy, backhands him unconscious and takes the Spear. Then he is brained by Ray with a microscope who throws the Spear to Sara only for her to fight over it with Malcolm.
    • Just the fact that the immeasurably powerful Spear of Destiny is getting swung around like a glorified club during this fight is hilarious in itself.
  • The ending, which reveals what exactly happened to Rip and the Waverider: they've been miniaturized and the ship has been placed on display in S.T.A.R. Labs as a model of a rocket.

    Episode 17: Aruba 
  • Everything having to do with the Mini!Waverider, including the sheer disbelief the Doomworld!Legends have when they first see it, from Mick grabbing it and shaking it around with Rip still inside, to Rip firing the blasters at the still full-sized Damien Darhk. All culminating in them preparing to unminituarize it and "blow the roof off this place"...and then literally blowing the roof off S.T.A.R. Labs.
    Damien: (chuckling as the Waverider fires on him) That's adorable!
  • Past!Rip enters to see Future!Rip and they both groan in unison "oh, bollocks."
  • When Past!Ray asks what happens in the future, Future!Rory casually points it out like this:
    Rory: (points to Ray) Dead. (points to Amaya) Dead. (to Stein) Good as dead.
  • Future!Thawne runs in to tell the past versions of the Legion of the Legends of the future being there.
    Thawne: I'm from the future.
    Damien: So what else is new?
    Thawne: (putting head in hands) I'm from your future! We used the Spear but then lost it. I've come back and the Legends are here as well.
    Malcom: Wait, there are two sets of Legends now?
    Snart: When do I get to rob a bank?
    Thawne: (in a tone that just screams Surrounded by Idiots) Just deal with them!
    • Thawne runs out, causing Damien to spit out his drink and mutter "I hate when he does that."
  • When Ray finds his ATOM suit, he kisses it and starts promising it that he'll never leave it again. Jax is visibly disturbed.
  • When Rory saves Ray (after Doomworld!Rory is killed), Ray squeals with delight.
    Rory: You hug me, I'll kill you.
    Ray: Okay, later, we can do it later.
  • While it's a Tear Jerker, what's Nate's last words to himself?
    Nate: Don't be a douche.
  • The final line of the episode, with the accompanying Wham Shot:
    Sara: Guys, I think we broke time.

Season 3

    Episode 1 - Aruba-Con 
  • Sara Lance, former assassin, working retail. Not to mention her Imagine Spot of murdering her supervisor.
  • When Ray's boss boasts that "if it doesn't live in a phone, it's not the future," Ray dryly points out he's been to the future three times.
  • Nate having to look up the contact info on his phone to remember the name of the woman he's talking to, that he's also dating.
  • Turns out Rory made it to Aruba after all.
  • Rory's reaction to meeting Julius Caesar:
    Rory: Your salad sucks!
  • The first encounter with Agent Sharpe has the Legends taking the piss out of Time Bureau fashion choices.
    Ray: [to Agent Sharpe] Lady, why are you so mean?
    Sara: Maybe it's that poly-blend pantsuit that's got her so grumpy.
    Nate: I didn't know Men's Warehouse gave group discounts.
    Agent Sharpe: What's the matter with you people? Do you want to get shot?
  • While Rip is showing Sara, Ray and Nate around the offices of the Time Bureau, Sara spots a time displaced King Arthur about to be returned home. While Rip acknowledges that the Legends know King Arthur, Sara hilariously tries to hide her face and avoids making eye contact with him, because while she knows King Arthur quite well, she knows his wife Guinevere even better.
  • When the others decide to steal back the Waverider, they are tripped up when its discovered that a class is being held in it. Right as Ray is in the middle of wondering what to do, Rory just straight up walks in and forces them out with his gun.
    • Earlier, they find the crew in a simulation of stopping a meteor shower with the "captain" suggesting they put the ship in the path of the beam. Behind them, Sara smiles and gives a "there you go" wave as she did that herself...at which point, the class burst out laughing with their leader remarking "only a complete idiot would do that!" Sara's face falls.
  • So how do you distract a bunch of semi-drunk fratboys on spring break? Send them a message on a dating app that there's a hot exotic woman looking to have sex with a college stud.
    • Mick's phone has the same app. And when the message appears with Gideon supplying the image (of her human avatar), he saves it.
  • Nate and Ray hijacking Dr. Stein's quote.
    Dr. Stein: As the great conqueror himself said, "We came, we saw—"
    Nate & Ray: We kicked Caesar's ass! (high-five)
  • Mick casually pick-pocketing Rip just before he exits the Waverider.
  • After the team realise Julius Caesar walked off with a history textbook, Stein suggests simply contacting the Time Bureau and letting them handle it.
    Nate: No, no no no, we do not let those time turds have the satisfaction of knowing that we-
    Ray: That you lost the book?
    Nate: Stop blaming me, okay? Caesar must have swiped it when I wasn't looking.
    Sara: Nate's right.
    Nate: Thank you.
    Sara: Not about it not being your fault. About the Time Bureau.

    Episode 2 - Freakshow 
  • When it's revealed that there's an anachronism involving the Titanic, Stein loudly proclaims his hatred of the ship, stating that the designer should be shot.
  • Sara's attempts to inspire need work.
    Sara: Take Rory and go. I have faith in you.
    Stein: Why?
    Sara: [beat] Just go.
  • Agent Sharpe tries to arrest Sara, leading to a knock down, drag-out fight. Which leads to a Double Knockout. And then they decide to take a break and get a drink of water.
  • After Sara informs the others that there's an oncoming threat that even the Time Bureau is afraid of, there's a moment of silence...before everyone laughs their asses off.
  • Ray names the pilfered saber-toothed tiger Mr. Sneezeums.
  • Barnum trying to get Nate to activate his meta-power.
    P.T. Barnum: Become the "Man of Steel"...that is very catchy, make a note of that.
  • When Nate can't steel up (probably due to his hangover), he says "I must be dehydrated man, this never happened to me before, I swear." Amaya, without missing so much as a beat, asks "Where have I heard that one before?". Nate immediately tries to convince Jax and Ray that "Not from me, she never heard that from me".

    Episode 3 - Zari 
  • As Nate (mid-bacon eating) is trying to talk to Stein about his lingering issues with his situation with Amaya, Stein discovers that she is on the ceiling, sleepwalking as a spider. And Nate promptly ignores Stein's advice and wakes her up, causing her to fall.
  • Ray trying to blend in the Bad-Guy Bar. How? By wearing a fake goatie, a backwards cap and an eyepatch.
    Sara: Too much Ray, too much.
  • Nate brews a hallucinogenic tea to help Amaya with her totem problem. He subsequently gets high as holy Hell, and spends most of the episode that way.
    Sara: Are you high?
    Nate: Give me your face...[reaches for Sara's face]
    • Jax has to direct Nate away from Sara who looks like she's about to kill Nate.
    • When Sara tells him to bring the Waverider, he has a difficult (for him) time getting into the captain's chair, and channels a bit of Scotty as he tries getting the Waverider to go...only for Gideon to pipe in, saying the ship isn't moving.
    Nate: Then why does it feel like my face is peeling off?
    Jax: Yo, you high or somethin', man?
    Nate: Youhavenoidea!
    • "I really like this show.", followed by Stein's Aside Glance.
    • Right as Sara is about to get them killed in a game of Chicken with Agent Sharpe, Stein tries to get Nate's input. All he can (aggressively) say is that he likes broccoli. Even better, he copies Stein's cadence and hand gesture when he does so.
  • Zari is less than impressed by the team.
    Zari: You saved the world?
    Ray: Twice!
    Zari: Then why does it still suck?
  • Mick is downright bummed he didn't get to shoot anyone on this trip (at least until Sara gave him the okay in the prison).
  • After Agent Sharpe threatens to exile the Legends to the dawn of time if they don't stop interfering, Gideon comments "What a bitch."
    • Just before that, when Gideon states she thinks they've escaped the Time Bureau ship only to receive a message from Sharpe.
    Gideon: Oh, bollocks.

    Episode 4 - Phone Home 
  • Turns out the Waverider, super-advanced time-travelling ship of awesomeness...has only one bathroom.
  • Ray wants to do "Two Truths and a Lie."
    Ray: This is gonna be fun.
    Mick: Lie.
    Ray: I haven't started yet. Look, I know you guys probably think this is lame...
    Sara: Truth.
  • Zari proving the Legends aren't that complicated to figure out.
    Zari: I already have you all figured out. The old guy wants to be anywhere but on this ship, these two (Nate and Amaya) have some will-they-won't-they thing going on, Rory's been drunk since breakfast, Jax is wondering if I'm single, and your ship's still mad at me for doing a teeny hack on her subsystems. Now what's this about only one bathroom?
    • Jax face when Zari gets to him is priceless
  • Ray trying to get the team to bond. To demonstrate, he gets Mick to perform a trust fall...and vanishes from existence as he falls back.
    Nate: Wait, Ray's dead?
    Mick: (rubbing head) He better be...
    • Minor, but when the team touchdown in October 30th, 1988 (the day before Ray gets killed), Ray pops back into existence, still waiting to catch Mick.
  • Zari experiencing the fun side-effects of her first big time travel. In her case, she suddenly finds herself speaking French.
  • As the team is changing into 1988-appropriate clothing, Ray ecstatically talks about all the spots from his home town that he can't wait to show them. The reason why they are in 1988 to begin with is to prevent his younger self from getting killed the next day.
  • Zari showing off a 1988 dress with sweater tied around her neck.
    Jax: You look like you're being strangled by a Muppet.
  • Mick dressed like a cop.
  • Ray's concern over his younger self stealing a slew of chocolate bars is less the crime and more the calories.
    • Mick just talks about being "proud" of Ray as a thief.
  • Mick being amused by Little Ray stealing candy and refusing to stop him on Adult Ray's behalf.
    Mick: I'm not a rat.
  • While it is a tense reveal, there's Ray's barely constained shock upon seeing "Gumball" for the first time.
    Ray: Guys? I think I know what kills me...
  • Adult Ray setting foot in his old home again and being worried about wearing shoes on the carpet.
  • Ray seeing two older kids messing with his stuff, talking about "they're friends." Seeing them toss his bag back and forth and run off laughing, it's clearly the first time Ray realizes the duo happened to be bullying him.
  • Little Ray and his loves of musicals, specifically Singin' in the Rain. Though the kicker is Mick's input.
    Mick: Not as good as Fiddler on the Roof. I love that show.
    Mick: What?
  • Ray and the baby alien are bowing their heads back and forth to the music. Cut to adult Ray doing the same.
  • Nate calling the Dominator queen a Mommynator.
  • The intended plan of dealing with the Dominator queen (luring it into the Waverider) backfires when Sara discovers that Jax, Mick and Stein took it. How does she learn this? The apology note left behind.
  • In a rather cathartic scene, we revisit the opening of the episode (the Men in Black about to shoot 1988!Ray), only for Ray to blast the Men in Black with the ATOM suit and then kick their asses.
  • Gumball mind controls the agents into performing "Good Morning" from Singin' in the Rain after everyone was watching it earlier. Ray wants to keep watching a while.
    • The agents' priceless "what the hell are we doing?" faces are what really sell it.
  • The team and Little Ray bidding a sad farewell to Gumball.
    Nate: I'm not crying. I just have alien goo in my eye.
    Sara: Me too...
  • The gang go out in full costume with Young!Ray for Halloween. This includes Zari in her Isis costume.
    Zari: I can't believe I let you talk me into this. How do you fight in these things?
    • Mick, of course, lights up his flamethrower and demands the bullies hand over all their candy. And their allowance.
  • Zari asks if all the team's missions go this badly. Ray starts to protest then admits they do.

    Episode 5 - Return of the Mack 
  • Jax on his psychic link with Stein.
    Jax: Last time I got laid Grey said to me, "Well done, Jefferson."
  • Mick's very blunt assessment on Victorian London:
    "Syphilis, whores, and vampires."
  • Mick is excited at the prospect of hunting vampires, revealing he's got a stake ready.
    Jax: You just carry that around with you?
    Mick: All my life.
    • Mick being more concerned with finishing reading Dracula than the missiles about to hit the Waverider.
  • The Running Gag of Jax suffering short-term memory loss from Ray's experiment and Ray trying to cover for it.
  • Nate's ridiculous attempt at a British accent. Sara doesn't even bother, simply saying she's from the NYPD.
  • Seeing the body, Mick just goes ahead and stakes it to the shock of everyone.
  • Without warning, "Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison plays and Sara wants to know who brought their phone. It turns out to be a Palmer Tech watch stolen from a corpse by the corrupt medical examiner.
  • Amaya comes across Zari on his knees in her room and thinks she's praying.
    Zari: Mecca is that way. I'm just looking for my earring.
  • The Legends nicely sum up Rip needing their help instead of the Time Bereau.
    Nate: So what you're saying is...your hot new girlfriend dumped you and you're crawling back to your ex.
    Mick: And I'm no one's sidepiece.
  • When Sara, Mick, and Rip suggest using Nate as vampire bait, Nate wonders if it's because he's handsome.
    Mick: Pretty.
    Nate: Pretty handsome.
  • Nate claims vampires and Mick have a lot in common.
    Nate: You both like to sleep in. And, you know, kill people.
  • Zari, a woman who grew up in a dystopian police state, where she was always on the run and only had meager food to eat, has a...unique take on Victorian London:
    Zari: Can't believe we're in a time where women can't vote and the Internet's not a thing. Savages.
  • As they're investigating the empty grave, Mick grabs Nate's arm and scares the shit out of him. Then Rip pops out of the grave, terrifying the entire team.
  • Rip argues that they have to let the ceremony go ahead to bring in Mallus.
    Ray: If Sara wants to kill Damien Darhk or we kill Damien Darhk or we prop him up in a convertible Weekend at Bernie's style, that's what we do because she's the captain.
    • Sara asks to talk to Ray in private. Mick smirks while Nate gives him a "good luck" clasp on the shoulder.
  • Stein sees Ray putting up the formula for the Firestorm matrix. Ray tries to pass it off as him playing Hangman. Jax backs him up.
    Jax: Uh, "Q!"
  • Nate being tied down, singing Return of the Mack, and complaining when he's rescued because he wanted a sexy vampire, not a weirdo doctor.
  • What is Damien Darhk's biggest concern upon being resurrected?
    Darhk: Who stole my watch?
  • Rip is the one to find the first body of the episode and pores over it for clues. Between his mannerisms, his wardrobe and Arthur Davrill's finely chiseled features, the whole thing becomes a blatant rip-off of Sherlock Holmes.

    Episode 6 - Helen Hunt 
  • Helen walking through the Hollywood lot, oblivious to how men are running into walls, falling off ladders and more staring at her.
  • Nate is telling Sara he can't find more information. Sara wants to know what the smell is and Nate admits he hasn't showered...in seven days.
  • Jefferson and Stein having a "Freaky Friday" Flip. Leaving Stein snarking like a teenager, and Jefferson talking like a stuck-up professor; you can tell both actors were having a ball hamming it up as they mimicked each other.
    Stein: I appear to be...African-American.
    Jax: You can just say "black", Grey.
  • Nate and Sara's WTF expressions realizing what's happening are priceless.
    Sara: Must be Tuesday.
  • Jax is looking forward to meeting some classic movie stars.
    Stein: And how would you know who they are? The oldest movie you've watched is some ridiculous farce called Police Academy.
    Jax: Don't knock the Academy, Grey.
  • Stein (in Jax's body) goes on a massive rant over how Helen is ruining classic Hollywood stealing roles from real actresses, including his beloved Hedy La Marr.
    Nate: Sorry, still adjusting.
  • Jax is complaining about how tired he feels in Stein's body. He then looks at "himself" in a suit and remarks "Damn, I look hot!"
  • The ladies are mingling at a party with Zari wrestling with her own outfit and asking if they can murder the inventor of stockings.
  • Stein/Jax and Mick are posing as waiters...with Mick eating from the tray he's holding.
  • Sara's annoyance as Mick, Ray and Nate all ogle Helen.
  • Sara finding Damien at the party.
    Sara: What are you doing here?
    Damien: Besides collecting my 15 percent?
    Sara: You're her agent?
    Damien: You have to admit, I have the killer instinct needed for the job.
  • Zari asks if Sara's "Trojan Horse" plan will work.
    Sara: Have men gotten smarter in the past few thousand years?
    Zari: Nope.
  • Clarissa Stein thought that her marriage to Martin needed to be "spiced" up so she decided they each needed a freebie. She chose Jean-Claude Van Damme, Martin chose Hedy La Marr. Then he got to meet her, and got very hot under the collar when he sees her.
  • Darhk has Stein in Jax's body and Hedy at his mercy. Then he discovers the body swap. He proceeds to laugh hysterically, allowing them to escape.
    Nora: Do you need a moment?
    Darhk: No, no I'm good. (cheerfully) Let's go kill them!
    • Nate did the exact same thing when he found out.

    Episode 7 - Welcome to the Jungle 
  • Zari defends not sending Helen back to her own time.
    Zari: That's what the Time Bureau does. We do it different.
    Nate: We do it different...ly.
    Ray: Yeah, more messy.
  • Mick notes his father is somewhere in the War and Nate points out the odds of them running into him are nearly impossible. He says "we do, I'll buy you a six-pack." Less than a minute later, they're surrounded by Marines and a hard-bitten leader. Mick's reaction: "You owe me a six-pack."
  • Nate introduces Mick to the latter's dad as "Officer Schwarzenegger."
  • Jax gets mad that somebody took the pie his mom made for him and asks Gideon who the culprit is. Cut to Dr. Stein, who has taken geniuses from throughout history to help him solve the problem of separating himself from Firestorm, and Marie Curie is seen eating the pie.
  • Zari and Ray fix the anti-jamming device.
    Zari: You're a genius.
    Ray: Thanks.
    Zari: Wasn't talking to you.
  • This summary of the Vietnam War said by Damien Darhk to Grodd.
    Darhk: Crappy war. Bitchin music.
  • After Jax helps save President Johnson and gets a pecan pie recipe instead of a medal, Zari gives us this gem:
    Zari: (As she is stuffing her face) Pie is way better then a medal, because you can eat it.
  • To paraphrase certain YouTubers, the sheer insanity that is this show can be good for a laugh. One part of the episode deals with Mick Rory's intensely emotional relationship with his father...and then Sara, who is being mind-controlled by a hyper-intelligent telepathic gorilla on board a time-ship, gets knocked out by Sir Isaac Newton with a frying pan. Don't think about it, indeed.

    Episode 8 - Crisis on Earth-X, Part 4 

     Episode 9 - Beebo The God of War 
  • The Arrow theme playing dramatically over 1992!Stein firing a toy bow and arrow.
  • 1992!Stein fleeing from other customers, whom he calls "barbarians," after he gets hold of the last remaining Beebo.
    • And him getting teleported to the past, where he ends up fleeing from Vikings, nervously calling them "barbarians" as well.
  • Snart-X is trying to play counselor for the Legends dealing with Stein's loss...by having them talk to a hand puppet made up to look like Stein. Words cannot do justice to the sight.
    Amaya: I think that everyone copes in their own ways...this way? This is wrong.
    • Ray asks him extremely complicated questions only Stein himself would know the answer to.
    • Nate chastises him on not sounding right and tries to give him tips.
    Snart: This is therapy, not acting class.
    Nate: (claps hands) Yes! That’s exactly the same level of frustration from Doctor Stein. Now, just...do it with the puppet.
    • Mick repeatedly punches the puppet in the face.
    Snart: My goodness! You're really working out some rage issues with, uh, Professor Stein.
    Mick: Nah. I just hate puppets.
  • Ray suggests that the team dress up like Norse Gods, only for Sara to shoot down the idea. Later in the episode, Dahrk and Nora show up disguised as Odin and Valkyrie and sway the Vikings.
  • The very notion of Vikings worshiping a cute, cuddly blue stuffed animal is hysterical.
  • Leo trying to get Mick to go off booze for at least a couple of days.
    Mick: Couple of days? 42 hours...
    Leo: 48.
  • Mick ends up stealing a flask from Beebo's chamber and gets kicked by Leif's sister.
    Freydis: You dare steal from the Blue God?
    Mick: He's not gonna drink it!
  • The Vikings interpret one of Beebo's sayings to burn Mick alive. The "I cannot believe this" shake of the head Mick gives is priceless.
  • Nate and Amaya attempt to steal Beebo, only for the toy to speak. Turns out he was so cuddly that Amaya couldn't help but squeeze him.
  • Agent Sharpe goes undercover with the Legends. How uncomfortable she looks says it all.
  • Ray impersonates Beebo but takes the time to try and convince the Vikings that science, evolution, and global warming are real.
  • Poor Agent Sharpe is the indicator of whether or not the anachronism has been fixed. How do they know that? Her completely serious words to Sara about "Beebo Day". She gets really far into it before it clicks that that's not the name for Christmas.
    Sharpe: Never felt right...
  • Sharpe and Sara unite to outdrink Vikings to get info. When they say "two out of three," the two just sigh and go back to drinking.
  • When Sharpe's name shows up on the screen, calling Sara, Nate and Ray immediately leave the room before Sara can answer. It's particularly funny given the growing levels of underlying Belligerent Sexual Tension between Sara and Sharpe.

     Episode 10 - Daddy Darhkest 
  • Snart walks in as Sara finishes a call with Sharpe and notes all the signs that Sharpe has a crush on her and was just calling to talk to her. Sara protests it's not true and they're completely different types of people.
    Snart: I don't know...you're both strong women, you're both obsessed with repairing time. You're both super hot...
    Sara gives him a questioning look.
    Snart: Gay. Not blind.
  • Mick initially mistakes John Constantine for Rip. When he's informed that they're different people, he notes:
    Mick: Skinny Brit in a trench coat. Same thing.
  • John listing his various credentials and finishing with "I'm also a Taurus if you're taking notes" while throwing a wink at Snart. Snart actually smiles as Mick gives a baffled look at each of them.
  • Ray warns the gang inside the asylum.
    Ray: You're in an asylum with a demon. A two-fer of terror.
  • Sara tries to get Emily away from the orderlies. She starts to say, "I'm Doctor..." and we expect another lame pop culture reference...and instead she just goes "yeah, I'm not doing this" and knocks them out.
  • Finding themselves in 1969, Constantine sees some nurses lighting up cigarettes and tries to get his own going. Seeing Sara's look, he shrugs "don't want to stand out." Then he can't light it.
  • Nate and Amaya argue over Kuasa.
    Amaya: I refuse to accept my grand-daughter is pure evil.
    Nate: Fine, she's eighty-nine percent evil.
  • Pretty much everything surrounding Mick watching a football game.
    • Zari points out he can just ask Gideon who will win and proceeds to do so. He barks that it's the first live game he's seen in three years.
    • Mick finally has enough of the gang bickering in the room where he's watching tv.
    Mick: Quiet! Haircut, take the New Girl, find Blondie, Fake Snart and Trenchcoat. Amaya, the medbay. Pretty, the library. Water Bitch stays in the freezer!
    Ray: You know, Mick, you're really showing management potential...
    Mick: Get Out!.
    • Holding off the possessed Nora, Ray and Zari call Mick for backup. He only yells "push 'em back!" and "Defense!" at the game, not listening to a word they say.
    • Nate joins Mick and starts watching the game, only to almost choke on his beer when Mick casually mentions that Amaya is talking to her "granddaughtercicle" - the exact opposite of what she was told to do earlier. Mick, naturally, doesn't care as long as the team isn't annoying him.
    • Snart saying goodbye to Mick with a heartfelt hug...all while Mick is still watching the game.
  • Constantine and Sara bicker while saving Snart.
    Sara: You said I was strong enough.
    Constantine: Well, I was trying to seduce you.
    Sara: Oh, please, I was seducing you.
    Snart: I hope no one was seducing anyone when I was about to be lobotomized!
    Constantine: This is why I like to work alone!
  • When Ray and Zari, while looking for Sara, Snart and Constantine, find the Time Travel magic sigil in the asylum and inform Nate about it, Ray tries, and fails, to describe the sigil to Nate. Zari reminds them both they're in the 21th century, and promptly takes out her phone, snaps a photo, and sends it to Nate, even calling the two of them a bunch of luddites.
  • Sara thanks Constantine for his "help with Mallus" and Constantine talks about as an obvious euphemism and "any time you want to more help with a demon," to call him. As he nods, Sara smiles "thanks for the shag too."
  • The nod to the 'verse's recent subversion of the One Steve Limit, as Mick is quite surprised at Snart saying he's going to propose to "Ray."
    Snart: Not your Ray, my Ray.
  • Quite possibly a Shout-Out to the series Constantine, the Running Gag of Constantine's difficulty in getting a light may be a reference to NBC's restrictions on depicting Constantine's iconic habit.

    Episode 11 - Here I Go Again 
  • The mission the rest of the team was on while Zari hung back? Preventing Napoleon from recording Waterloo.
  • Right before the loop starts up again, Nate gives Zari one last bit of advice: find him immediately, and say "Groundhog Day". Next loop, she finds him...and because she misheard him, says Hedgehog Day.
    • Later on, when explaining to Ray about the time loop, he likens it to "Cause and Effect", much to Nate's annoyance.
  • Mick hates "Waterloo" so much that he flashes himself with the memory eraser to forget it...prompting him to unknowingly take his laundry back to the laundry room to dry them.
  • As it turns out, Nata and Amaya have been having sex and using the memory eraser to forget about it. One loop ends with Zari unintentionally hearing them and trying not to vomit, prompting her to basically say aloud to the Waverider "Kill me now." with a sarcastic tone. Cue explosion.
    • Even funnier - not only does she hear them have sex, but she hears them steeling up and using the totem during sex.
  • In Mick's room, he has set up multiple traps concerning a locked safe: including a bear trap, an electric counter-measure, and some dye packs. Why? To protect his typewriter, which he is using to pen a 1000 page sci-fi romance novel (although based on the excerpts we hear, it's clearly erotica, instead of romance).
    • And apparently it's pretty good, according to Zari.
  • One loops ends with Ray and Zari, shrunken, spying on Sara talking to Ava in the jump ship...and ultimately getting crushed when she mistakes them for a fly.
  • After Nate advises Zari to just have fun for a little as long as she is stuck in the loop, we get a montage of Zari doing various things like throwing snow balls at Mick, catching Ray when he falls down, trying on Kendra's old costume and more.
  • In a bit of Breaking the Fourth Wall, at one point during the "happy montage", Zari walks into the laundry room as Ray and Mick are doing laundry, holding up cue cards containing what they are going to say, them discovering Zari, and the ship blowing up (the start of which prompts Zari to unceremoniously drop the cards and leave).
  • The sudden appearance of Gary in the trash compactor.
    • As it turns out, Gideon intentionally put Gary there in the simulation because even she doesn't like him.
  • After Zari tries to sacrifice herself and locks herself in the captain's area, Mick immediately exclaims, "My beer's in there!" Also, instead of offering consoling words like everyone else, he just closes his eyes and sticks his fingers in his ears.
  • Upon being face to face with Gideon's human avatar, right after the bomb was supposed to explode, Zari mentions how mad she will be if it turns out she dreamed this entire episode.

    Episode 12 - The Curse of the Earth Totem 
  • Ray does a big drawing of Mallus and the Totems...which Mick compares to a hemorrhoid.
  • Mick relates Sara is going on a date.
    Ray: Did you read her phone?
    Mick: I read everyone's phone. It passes the time.
  • Ray shows a taunting note left by Darhk.
    Zari: You know, for a meglomaniac, he has very lovely penmanship.
    Ray: I know, right?
  • Wally, drunk, robs Gary of his Time Bureau gear and pantses him for some reason. Rip (also drunk) then sends Wally to retrieve a valuable item from the Time Bureau: His coat. He kisses it when Wally gives it to him.
  • Mick starts telling the pirates at the bar that a fearsome pirate queen is there as Blackbeard enters.
    Amaya: Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Ava, on a date with Sara, chokes on her drink when she sees Gary. When she runs off to deal with that (by telling Sara she's going to the bathroom), Sara sees the Waverider out the window, crashing. The You Have GOT To Be Kidding Me look on her face is fantastic.
  • Rip and Wally getting drunk off their asses in a 1992 Tokyo karaoke bar, while singing "Careless Whisper"
    Wally: Wow. You're a bit of a douche. No offense.
    Rip: None taken.
  • Mick is utterly dumbstruck when he sees the fearsome pirate Blackbeard is a coward. It's best compared to a kid suddenly learning the truth about Santa Claus.
    Mick: That's Blackbeard you're talking to and he ain't gonna sing...
    Blackbeard: I buried it on Grace Island. Would you like me to draw you a map? I can't promise to make it to scale but I can do me damndest!
  • Zari wants to take the Waverider away while Nate argues about leaving the others behind.
    Ray: I'm sure they're having a whale of a time with Blackbeard!
    (Gilligan Cut to the trio being pulled onto a platform where the axeman is waiting)
  • Sara and Ava show up and get into a huge fight on the bridge that culminates in a Big Damn Kiss.
    • And they completely fail to see Nate and Ray using Ava's device to go into the past.
    • And fail to realize Blackbeard and his crew boarding until they're right on top of them.
  • The morning after running around time and space drunk, Wally has a horrible hangover...for three minutes.
  • Sara and Ava share a drink from a bottle with a pirate captain on it. As Sara puts the bottle down, the label transforms into a likeness of Amaya as "Captain Jiwe."

     Episode 13 - No Country for Old Dads 
  • The gang find Ray's message of help and "as you've no doubt figured out by now, I have been captured by the Darhks." The first thing they agree to do? Never mention to Ray that they had no idea he wasn't even on the ship.
  • Wally's first interaction with Mick is to super-speed Jerry Garcia's glasses out of his hands, and berate him for stealing them...only for Nate to explain the Legends' "souvenir" clause of taking things, whereupon Wally sheepishly walks back to Mick to return them.
  • Darhk gets Ray to send a fake message claiming Darhk is taking him to a Grateful Dead concert.
    Darhk: Your idiot friends are going to go to every Dead concert they can find before they realize I don't even like jam bands!
  • Darhk asks Nora if she would have a problem with him dating again, after her mother died. She rolls her eyes and says it's been over twenty years from her perspective, so it's fine.
  • Wally's first interaction with Zari and Amaya...does not start off good when he calls Amaya "Nate's basic bitch that dumped him on his birthday" (unaware she was Nate's ex). Wally wisely speeds off.
  • Darhk and Ray pop up at Ray's old Upswipz place. Boss Alan snaps "there's no take-backs at Upswipz!" He then looks at a poster...that has the exact message in their logo.
  • Damien has a fun time causing Alan to slam up and down the ceiling while yawning.
  • Sara is giving the gang orders to work.
    Sara: Mick...
    Mick: Crush a six pack!
    Sara: You do what you do.
  • Darhk trying out the dating app:
    Darhk: I haven't had a single match yet. I think this thing is broken.
    Alan: If I may...
    (pan up to reveal Darhk is still telekinetically pinning him to the ceiling}
    Alan: You might have more luck if you talk about your hobbies.
    Alan: Also, your profile says you're 199 years old.
    Damien: Yeah, it wouldn't go any higher. Could you fix that?
    Alan: Well, everyone lies about their age....
    • "Hi Annoyed, I'm Dad." That is all.
    • Even better - the profile he likes on the dating app? It's Carrie C., a.k.a. Cupid.
  • When Darhk agrees to let Nora do the mission alone with Ray, he tells her to "use protection." She says "Ew" and takes her hand off Ray's shoulder. Darhk rolls his eyes and hands her a gun. Even better when you remember that Ray and Nora's actors are married.
  • Ray and Nora's beautiful banter and arguing.
    Ray: It's time you showed your father what's inside you...besides the demon.
  • Darhk spends most of the episode at odds with Nora, and he's trying to figure out the mysteries of fatherhood first with a corpse and then with Ray.
    • The scene with Ray is also funny because of Darhk berating him for not responding...before remembering that he's technically got him in a choke-hold with his magic.
    • The Hypocritical Humor of Nora calling her dad a Manchild all the while acting like a Bratty Teenage Daughter.
    • When Darhk is tying up Ray, they are still having their talk.
    Ray: That's not a strong knot.
    Damien: And how would you know?
    Ray: Because I was an Eagle Scout. Trust me!
    • Even funnier when you realize he's letting Darhk do this to him.
  • Nora belts Past!Darhk in the face and smirks "Always wanted to do that." Damien just grins back.
  • Director Bennett's wonderfully dark death scene. First he's trying to stop Alexander Hamilton from seeing Hamilton and berating Ava for not arresting Rip...completely unaware that a very angry Grodd is behind him causing chaos before making short work of him.
    Sara: I'm sorry Ava, he was a good man...I think.
    • Rip's complete apathy to Bennett's death. He casually replies to Ava's horrified "Oh my God" by saying "It's Grodd, actually". He later comments on how unfortunate the situation is in the most half-hearted way possible. He then quickly points out that Ava is now in command and asks for his job back.
    • Just before that, Ava's reaction to hearing about the Hamilton situation:
  • After getting a call from his past self wanting to exchange a captured Nora for the scientist he's trying to kill, Dhark comments "I am gonna kick my ass!" Probably the single strangest threat that one person has ever made against another.
  • While tense and somewhat emotional, the climax of the episode basically boils down to Darhk unintentionally treating Nora like a yo-yo as he gets his ass handed to him by himself.
  • Darhk shoots the scientist. Why?
    Darhk: Well, I can't have him ruining my perfect record!
  • Doubling as a CMOH, Sara convinces Wally to stay by revealing how the Legends are the masters of the bad first impression (citing "Shogun" for Nate and Amaya, and Mick's multiple betrayals).
  • Past Dahrk acting like a stone cold badass under a ridiculous wig modeled after Anton Chigurh's.

     Episode 14 - Amazing Grace 
  • Zari explains to Wally how chores are done on the ship.
    Zari: We divvy up cleaning duties by Ray's chore wheel which uses a complex system I pretend not to understand until he eventually does my chores for me.
    • We see a shot of said chore wheel which has three different circles with the team's names and no wonder they hate it.
    • And then Wally cleans the entire kitchen in a second.
  • The early signs of rock and roll being eliminated: a video game named Trombone Hero; Mick's rat now named Josh Groban; and Nate's hair is now horrible without the same hair gel Elvis made popular.
  • The team figures out it's the Darhks.
    Nate: The only people evil enough to kill rock and roll. And I bet the sick bastard likes ska.
  • After Sara states that they need to go to 1954 Memphis, the rest of the team doesn't move. Why? Because she usually makes these announcements with more pizazz.
    Sara: (exasperated) All right Legends! Put on your Sunday best because we are going to church!
    • Even better she says the last bit with Jazz Hands.
  • The sight of the Legends in a 1954 southern church; to say they don't fit in is an understatement.
    Ray: Just keep Mick away from the collection tray. And the communion wafers.
    (cut to Mick spitting out some wafers)
  • After it's decided that the team needs to get Elvis' guitar, something that would normally take up at least half of an episode, Wally speeds off and gets it in a few seconds.
    Zari: Is it just me, or is that really annoying?
  • The team wonder if this means Elvis is supposed to join the team. Nate suggests Gideon having him whip up a sequined jumpsuit and Ray that they can use the totem to "finally achieve my Broadway dreams!"
  • So, Elvis' record is playing on the radio, and Elvis' uncle is willing to let his nephew play rock and roll. Episode over, right? Cue ghosts.
  • Only this team could find themselves in battle with a haunted guitar floating around the ship.
  • Nate is explaining the situation while behind Sara, Wally is being dragged around by the guitar as Zari chases him.
  • Ray insists on throwing a funeral with Axl complete with a tiny coffin and mini-wreaths. Mick and Sara are ready to leave but Ray insists they need this.
    Sara: Fine, but when I mourn, I drink.
    Ray: Fair enough.
    • Sure enough, she and Rory mix and share drinks during Ray's entire eulogy. He asks if Sara wants to say anything but she smirks "you're doing a great job."
    Ray: And now I'd like to share a lyric of "Sweet Child of Mine."
    Sara: Okay, I'll say something.
  • The episode ends with an In Memoriam for Mick's pet rat.

     Episode 15 - Necromancing the Stone 
  • Wally finds out the hard way that Rory sleeps in the nude when Sara assembled everyone together for a briefing.
    Zari: I tried to warn you...
  • Sara doesn't end the briefing with her usual pizazz because "Momma's got a headache."
  • Turns out Leonardo da Vinci was a cross-dresser and The Mona Lisa is a self-portrait.
  • Gideon can't express the emotion, but she makes it clear that she's pissed that someone disabled her monitoring system.
  • Ava shows up in holographic form to talk to Sara and thrown by Sara's appearance.
    Ava: Wow, these holo-feeds really bleach out your skin. Did you do something with your hair?
    • Ava then shows up to talk to the others...and demand Mick move as he's half in her hologram.
  • When Ava and Gary enlist Constantine in order to get in contact with the Legends, he is chasing a chicken around his apartment with a Latina woman. No explanation of this is given, except it somehow has to do with the woman's son getting married.
    • He initially assumes Ava and Gary have come to evict him, and insists he won the apartment in a duel and that is perfectly legal.
    • He's totally nonchalant over killing Sara and mutters "ah, bollocks" when he hears she's bonded to the Totem. Gary briefly tries to explain what "bollocks" meansnote  before Ava cuts him off.
    • At one point, Constantine pulls out a severed human foot to use in a ritual, to Ava's surprise.
    Ava: So you have a foot but you don't have a phone.
    • Constantine inevitably lets it slip to Ava, who is in a relationship with Sara at the moment, that he and Sara had sex previously.
    Constantine: Seems we share a taste in damaged women.
    Ava: Sara's not damaged.
    • Gary's giggling reaction to realizing they both slept with Sara is priceless.
  • Gary realizes that the situation the Legends are in is a lot like a game of D&D he played with his friends...whereupon he basically asks Ava and Constantine to stay with him on this.
  • Essentially, Ray's solution to fixing the Fire Totem? Nuking it in a microwave.
  • When Amaya finally convinces him to at least try to use the fire totem, Mick petulantly puts it on and tells her that it didn't work. Cue the totem then bonding with him.
  • After Sara comes back to herself, she thanks Ava and Ava notes that she had help and turns to Mick and John. Mick's staring at the ball of fire he's holding in one hand, and John promptly decides to use it to light a cigarette (which makes Mick look a bit alarmed.) When the shot switches back to Sara and Ava, Sara looks amused and fond, Ava looks fond and concerned.
  • In a bit of Black Comedy near the end Constantine and Sara have a drink with Sara asking him point blank that if he knew Sara’s soul could indeed be traded for Astra's, would he have let Mallus take her. John's response:
    John: In a heartbeat.
    • Even better is Sara's “yup that's fair” facial expression.
  • There's apparently quite a bit of history between Constantine and Beebo - which inevitably leads to yet again more tension between him and Ava.
    John: What you got on your socks there squire?
    Gary: Oh! It's Beebo. My Aunt Stacy bought them for me. You like Beebo?
    Gary: Oh, like what?
    Ava: OK, Sara's soul is trapped in the realm of a demon and her ship and her entire crew are lost in time. Who cares about Beebo!
    John: Well his Aunt Stacy does! You're wound tight as a bloody drum, aren't you love? Pardon me: "Pet." You know you need to loosen up and the work just flows.
    Ava: Oh is that work you were doing? Sorry, I couldn't tell.
    John: There isn't exactly a paint-by-numbers spell for locating a spaceship floating through a temporal stream. My business card says "Master of the Dark Arts", not Dr. Ruddy Whats-His-Face.
    Ava: Who?
    Gary: Who.
    John: Exactly!

     Episode 16 - I, Ava 
  • Ray pouting over Sara making Amaya acting captain instead of him.
  • Gary, as usual, is worth plenty of laughs:
    • When he arrives on the Waverider, he's walking around with his eyes covered so that he won't accidentally see Sara and Ava in the middle of anything.
    • Stating how desperate he's gotten to cover up that Ava hasn't been in work.
    Gary: I've already forged her signature twice. What am I supposed to do, put on a wig and pantsuit and pretend to be her?
    Ray: (Squicked out face)
    Sara: ...No, Gary, don't do that.
    • He says that the future Vancouver full of clones of Ava is like a dream he's had.
    Sara: I've had that dream too, but there's less clothes in mine.
    Gary: Mine too!
    • Being absolutely useless during the fight scene.
  • When asked why they've been posing as Ava's parents, her "mother" replied "you know how hard it is to get acting jobs in Fresno?"
    • Sara then replies "sorry about the knife, gut reaction."
  • Ray has a truly spectacular Take That! moment when he's fighting the clones of Ava and calls it the "second worst Attack of the Clones" he's ever seen.
  • Damien complains about the darkness of Vixen. He sees Nora glaring through her face and replies "oh, not you, honey, it's fine on you."
  • Once again, Damien Darhk somehow gets into an impromptu therapy session with a captive Legend. This time, it's Nate.
    • His failure to carry through with the torture is played out like a failure to perform sexually.
    Darkh: Torture just doesn't bring the same joy anymore!
    Nate: This is deep stuff, Damien. Really deep. Let's just keep digging, keep digging. But...put the cattle prod away? I'm gonna die anyway.
    Darkh: Sure, safe space, safe space.
    • The two gleefully faking Nate being tortured.
  • Wally and Amaya show up to rescue Nate.
    Wally: Get your hands off that hard body. That sounded better in my head.
  • Throughout the episode, Mick blows off totem training with Zari, and keeps offering her food despite her Ramadan fast (including either ignoring or being unaware of her inability to eat pork products). When she finally has enough and snaps at her, he responds by calling her a bitch, so she uses her totem to start kicking his ass.
    • Amaya hears the sounds of this, and seemingly aware of what's happening, merely smiles.

     Episode 17 - Guest Starring John Noble 
  • For starters: That is the actual episode name.
  • Nate is freaking about a "Code 131." No one has any idea what he's talking about as they didn't read the memo. It then turns out that Ray wrote a song about it. Which he then proceeds to sing to everyone.
  • The promo made a big deal about how Gorilla Grodd was sent back in time to go after Barack Obama while he is in college. The conflict is introduced, then resolved, within the first few minutes of the episode.
  • "Time to make America Grodd again!"
  • While preparing to rescue young Obama from Grodd, Sara gets this brilliant line:
    Sara: (to Zari) Alright, do it. The rest of us, we're on Obama-care.
  • The gang are a bit thrown to see the future President as a kid.
    Obama: Barack is what it says on my birth certificate.
    Sara: Yeah, you might want to hang onto that.
  • Mick sounds hilariously petulant once Darhk comments that the ankh symbol is upside down
    Darhk: Your ankh symbol is upside down.
    Mick: No it's not.
    Darhk: Yes it is.
  • After rescuing Obama, Sara goes back to talk to him about how to deal with Damien Darhk and Mallus. Then she erases his memory again.
    Sara: I really miss you.note  (zapp)
  • After Ray suggests he shrink down into Nora's ear and impersonate Mallus to trick her:
    Darhk: Okay, new guy question — is that a joke plan or a real plan?
    • Later, when Ray is actually doing so, Nora says that Mallus is talking to her...very loudly. Cue Ray lowering the volume on his speakers.
  • "Tell Peter Jackson no more chickens. I ate four this morning."
  • Rip telling Darhk there's no way Sara will give him the Death totem no matter what. Followed immediately by Sara throwing Darhk the totem.
  • Nate's pitch for having the Earth totem is that he owns all of Planet Earth on Blu Ray, and was stoned when he watched it all.
  • Wally explaining to Amaya what he and Ray are doing in Zambezi:
    Wally: Short version, Nora's on the ship, tripping on Mallus juice. Damien Darhk gave us the Water Totem after they saved Barack Obama, and, uh, we are here to help you create the anachronism so we can release Mallus and then we can kill him.

     Episode 18 - The Good, The Bad And The Cuddly 
  • Mallus reveals that his name is actually pronounced Malice. Everyone spends the rest of the episode going back and forth on both pronunciations. Except for Mick, who calls him "Phallus."
  • The team reunite with Hex.
    Sara: Who died and made you sheriff?
  • When Nate comes across Ray sneaking Darhk off the ship as part of an emergency plan without anyone's permission:
    Nate: I'd like to know what you're doing.
    Darhk: Me too.
    Ray: (is quiet for a moment, then punches Nate out)
  • The Legends' first attempt to create a champion form...doesn't go as planned.
    Nate: (thinking to himself) Concentrate, Nate, think about Voltron, Defender of the Universe!
    • Zari wonders to herself whether it's weird to think that Jonah Hex is hot. Sara agrees with her, and then they all realize that they can hear what everyone else is thinking.
    Mick: (sounding genuinely disturbed) Are we making a baby? (gets interrupted by the others) Seriously, are we making a baby?
  • Ray interrupts the conversation between Ava and Sara by casually bursting into the saloon after taking off with Damien Dahrk. When Sara asks him where Dahrk is, Nora steps in behind Ray, and everyone immediately pulls out their weapons.
    Nate: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wrong Dahrk, WRONG DAHRK.
  • Amaya and Nate embark on a vision quest again to find out how to fight Mallus with the totems properly. In the vision, they see the original Zambesi totem bearers holding hands in a circle, and beams of light from the totems converging in the centre. Nate's assessment?
    Nate: They beat him with the Care-Bear Stare!
  • When Sara is reluctantly talked into taking up the death totem again, Mick cheerfully promises that if she goes evil from it again, he'll kill her. She honestly thanks him.
  • Sara's Rousing Speech takes an awkward left turn at the end.
    Sara: All right. We're facing an army of Romans, Vikings, and pirates. But you know what today is? Today is the day that we prove that Rip did not sacrifice his life in vain. And today is the day that we prove that we are NOT losers. And today...is the day that we earn the name "Legends."
    (hoists a shot of whiskey into the air and downs it as the group cheers)
    Sara: (squints) Now...how do we sneak out the back?
  • The Legends need an avatar to defeat Mallus. A beacon of hope and brightness. Cue the goofiest smackdown in TV history as Mallus is beat down by a building sized Beebo.
    Beebo want cuddle!
    • Everyone's "WTF?!" reactions (especially Hex) are priceless.
      Freydís: The Blue God—he has returned.
      Ray: (laughs in disbelief)
      Helen: That is your captain's plan?
      Sharpe: Where the hell are Sara and the others?
      Jax: That is Sara and the others!
      Sharpe: What?!
      Hex: (tilts his head in confused acceptance)
      Avatar: Beebo hungry! (giggles) (runs off to face Mallus)
      Jax: Man, have I missed you guys.
  • After the team separates from their combined Beebo form after defeating Mallus, Mick utters what may be possibly the greatest line in Arrowverse history:
  • During an otherwise heartwarming Group Hug, at which Mick is at the center, he loudly protests "Get off me!"
  • Amaya gets a hilarious line after they defeat Mallus.
    Amaya: I'm just glad the ancestors aren't here to see this.
  • At the end of the episode, the team returns to Aruba (to Mick's annoyance, as he wanted to go by himself) and is relaxing on the beach when Constantine shows up...except it's really Gary in cosplay.
    • Zari tells him that his wig looks presidential. He promptly takes it off.
    • At which point, the real Constantine shows up, saying "he's with me," meaning he was okay with Gary doing this weird act.
    • Just the sight of Constantine in his usual rumpled suit standing on a beach with a dragon's head at his feet.

Season 4

    Episode 1: The Virgin Gary 
  • We rejoin the team during the arrival of The Beatles. And who should ride in but Paul Revere, screaming about a British invasion.
    • Mick immediately knocks out Revere, and Nate takes his place on his mission while carrying him back to his own time. As soon as they're through the time portal, the unconscious Revere falls off the horse.
    • Revere comes out yelling "the British are coming!" Ray automatically claims "the real Paul Revere never said that" then realizes it is Revere. And then Nate yells it while riding through the portal.
  • Mick is really grumpy and would rather punch out The Beatles than protect them but then Nate explains to him that without The Beatles, Black Sabbath might never exist. Mick immediately takes his assignment very seriously.
    • His statement of "Never met an Englishman I didn't wanna punch in the face" is even funny on a meta-level when you remember Dominic Purcell is British.
  • While Sara's ecstatic they've finished rounding up the anachronisms, the others are bored and annoyed that no new monsters have shown up, as they feel that'd be more exciting.
    Zari: What ratings?
    Ray: The Time Bureau rates all its agents. We're pretty low but have small yet active fan base.
    Zari: Gary doesn't count.
    • Later on...
    Ray: Maybe the Bureau will up our ratings. People do love the supernatural.
  • When Ava very briskly calls the team to Time Bureau HQ, Sara assumes she's somehow found out about Constantine's warning at the end of last season.
    Sara: Who told Ava about the dragon?!
    Nate, Zari and Ray all point at each other
    • After it turns out that Ava just called them in for a Surprise Party to celebrate and reward the team for all they've done, we get this little gem:
    Mick: I don't want your stinking medal.
    Ava: There's an open bar.
    Mick: ...Where?
  • Constantine just standing for who knows how long in the living room of Sara's apartment just waiting for the chance to fire his lighter for a dramatic entrance. Sara just rolls her eyes.

  • Nate and Ray's reaction to the unicorn (Before it gets murdery)
    Nate: Twilight Sparkle come to life.
    Ray: Dude, are you a brony?
    Nate: Dude, we're brony bros.
  • The Legends (sans Sara) all getting high as hell on the unicorn's musk: Nate sees Mick as his father, Mick sees Nate as a giant version of his dead pet rat Axl, Zari starts waxing poetic about love, and Ray makes out with a tree he thinks is Nora.
    Zari: I'm still fuzzy on how we were...
    Mick: Roofied by a horse.
  • The reason Sara isn't effected is because when the unicorn sprayed out its magic blast, she ducked behind Zari. Zari just gives her a "seriously?" look.
  • Constantine pulls out an ancient spellbook.
    Sara: Not to pressure you but the entire fate of the Sexual Revolution hangs in the balance here.
    Constantine: That is my favorite revolution.
  • The Legends robbing various rock stars at Woodstock to get the ingredients Constantine needs for his banishing spell:
    • The first ingredient is the saliva from a nine-fingered man, so Nate steals a joint from Jerry Garcia (and gets chased by an angry mob.)
    • The second is protection stone of a powerful shaman, so Mick steals Jimi Hendrix's necklace.
    • The third is a lock of hair from a doomed woman, so Ray grabs a lock of hair off of Janis Joplin.
      • The team learsn they need a virgin to make it all work and everyone thinks that's impossible to find at Woodstock. So who do they get? Hint: Read the episode title.
    • Gary's response is to wonder if he still "counts" after whatever he and Constantine did. Constantine reassures him that yeah, he does.

    Episode 2: Witch Hunt 
  • The gang talk of the monsters that could threaten the timeline.
    Mick: Like, uh, vampires.

  • Zari talks about Constantine.
    Sara: Yeah, about that. Constantine is...

    • Constantine demands various things, including "two weeks paid vacation."
    Zari: Vacations?
    Mick: Paid?

    Sara Fugitives it is.
    • And barely a scene later, Sara produces an even worse play on words.
    Sara: Well I hope you're feeling morally superior, cause we're getting our puritan puriton.
    Sara: That was too much, right?
  • Ray reports the incident they saw.
    Ray: We saw a woman summon a murder of crows and now I get why they call it that.
  • The gang note that if things aren't changed, everyone in Salem is going to spontaneously combust.
    Mick: My kind of woman.
  • Constantine assumes that Prudence is being possessed by a demon. So he and the team are completely flabbergasted that when a Fairy Godmother is the culprit.

  • Everything about the Fairy Godmother, a delicious dark parody of the Disney godmother.
    '''I mean, who chooses to wear glass slippers? Think of the blisters!

    Mick: What did you call me?!
  • Ava runs into Nate, who's in a bathrobe because he's been sleeping at the Time Bureau HQ.
  • When Nate realizes that his father is in the meeting he agreed to help Ava out in, he backs out, telling Ava that Gary can provide all the help she needs. Cue a shot of Gary having somehow gotten his hand caught inside a cardboard tube.
    Gary: We'll give them the old ham and eggs!
    • Gray tries to prove magic is real by showing his bit-off nipple. It goes as well as you'd expect.
    Ava: Gary, put it away!
  • Nate comes to the Waverider to grab some quick evidence on the proof of magic, he comes across Ray, who's been turned into a pig. When he learns that the same thing happened to Mick, he asks where Mick is. Cut to Pig!Mick eating food scraps in the kitchen.

  • Nate's new desk job is less exciting than he expected. There are reams of paperwork, the highlight of the week is receiving tacos on Monday instead of on Tuesday, and Gary keeps trying to act like it's the coolest job ever.
  • Ray drops the guys off at the punk club.
    Ray: You kids have fun. I'll have some hand sanitizer when you come back.
  • Constantine gives Mick a hot foot with Mick responding by smashing a bottle over his head. Yep, it's a Bar Brawl.
    • During which the camera cuts to Ray in the van listening to light rock music and bobbing his head.
  • The band congratulates Ray for escaping the police by driving on the wrong side of the road. Ray, of course, doesn't get what he did wrong.
  • When Mick's bickering with Constantine finally causes the latter to leave the ship:
    Mick: He's gonna get us killed.
    Sara: You just don't like guys with ties!
    Mick: That's right! It's like a little flag hanging from someone's neck saying "I'm a liar".
  • Constantine assumes that the Irish member of The Smell is a Leprechaun. When Zari asks if he's being serious or racist, he replies "Both."
  • Due to Ray being forced to steal one of the Queen's Corgis, Sara and Mick decide to "QB" the situation, with Mick walking Ray through what to do... which amounts to having Ray sit on a bench and wait as Sara beats up the security personnel, then walk up to the dog walker and just ask for one... which he gets, unaware that it's because Sara intimidated the dog walker into doing so.
  • Zari tracks Constantine down to a pub that, as it turns out, his mom works at... and it turns out Constantine deliberately went there just so that he can give his dad a "back-alley vasectomy" so that he won't be born. And this equates to kicking him in the balls... except he keeps being prevented from doing so by blinking out of existence for a second. Zari explains that this is the result of the "ball kick paradox".

  • Ray sits next to Mick on a bench trying to be cool and secret agent. Mick is fighting not to punch him in the face.
  • Charlie reveals the band members all have embarrassing stuff in their past, including that the guy Constantine assumed was a leprechaun isn't actually Irish. He reverts to his much plummier accent to say he thought it would sound more street.
  • "Gary, did you put butter in the coffee machine again?"
  • Gary gives Nate a desk plant as a memento of their first mission together. Turns out that the reason the blip randomly disappeared was because the plant was the blip, and it's actually a dangerous magical creature. Nate hands Gary a stapler and grabs a paper-cutter blade before running after it.
  • Charlie ends up in Shapeshifter Mode Lock as Amaya, meaning we get to see Maisie Richardson-Sellers follow up her portrayal of the wise and heroic Amaya with a Cockney-accented punk rocker.
    • Speaking of Charlie as Amaya, Nate finally admits to Sarah that the reason he left the ship was because he felt like he was seeing Amaya around every corner, but now he's willing to put that past him and come back. Sarah has to think quickly to convince him to stay at the Time Bureau while they handle the current situation.

    Episode 4 - Wet Hot American Bummer

      • Also the fact that Ray retains much of his usual dorky personality even when he's a cold-blooded killer.
      • His reaction to Charlie as Marilyn is "I am killing it at historical figure bingo!"

    • Charlie is jarred at how she keeps being referred to as the "White Whale" by the various teams.
    • Puppets of Tomorrow:
      • The Fairy Godmother is subdued, but she quickly convinces Mick to make a bond with her to return to his life of crime, and an offhand comment about the others being puppets of the Time Bureau means they're now all actual puppets and forced to act like they're on a kids' show.

  • Ray asks Sara to make him acting captain while she's gone and presents a petition signed by the rest of the team. Mick's has had a couple of words in the middle blacked out, so it reads "Go [blank] [longer blank] Haircut".
  • When Nate is having a serious conversation with Hank over the phone, his mom comes up and steals the phone to remind Nate about the benefit. As always, it's clear who's really in charge of the family.

    Nate's Mom: [takes the phone] Thank you, thank you. [into phone] Hello, sweetie. So don't forget, the benefit is tonight.
    Nate: Mom, I don't know if I'm gonna make it this year. I have a work emergency.
    Nate's Mom: Work can wait. Right, Hank?

    Nate's Mom: Yeah, your father's nodding. Okay, darling. See you here at 7:00. [makes kissy noise and hangs up]
  • Ray's idea of a team building exercise with Constantine and Charlie is a card game featuring trivia about the Legends' past missions.
    • This scene also contains a Take That, Scrappy! moment, as neither Charlie or Constantine are impressed by Vandal Savage's name.
  • The wonderfully awkward moment when Nate's mom assumes that Zari is his girlfriend and compliments her on her childbearing hips.

    Zari: Yes.
    Nate's Mom: Ohho-ho. What, is this your new girlfriend?
    Nate: Um, yeah.

  • As Constantine and Mick come to realize, Hank's spirit is more or less haunting his funeral, so Constantine goes to Nate to inform him that they need to do a séance (since Hank has something important he needs to say to him)... and Nate shuts that down, due to being done with Hank. Not even Hank's creepy ghost actions can change his mind.
  • Zari makes out with Kamadeva and realizes he's something more than human by the kiss alone. He identifies himself as the Hindu God of Love. Zari's response: "Awesome" and drag him into a nearby barn stall.
    • Sara and Mona come up, hearing loud noises...and then Zari reveals she's got Kamadeva tied up.
    • As they take him off, Mona gives Zari a look of "good one, girl!" while Sara has a stare of "what is wrong with you?"
  • Meta: it's rather impressive how this show managed to get away with showing what was clearly a dream orgy brought about by Kamadeva's magic.
  • While doubling as a CMOH due to the circumstances behind it, when Nate was a kid and upset they couldn't go to Disneyland, Hank bought and wore a Mickey Mouse costume in order to cheer him up.
  • Meta: the episode that centers around Hank's funeral has a Bollywood musical number as the climax.
  • In what is arguably the most shocking twist of the season, it turns out that Hank's true motive for gathering up magical creatures... was because he wanted to make an amusement park in order to make Nate happy. Nate facepalms and says that Hank really would have fit in with the Legends if they had known him better.
  • Ray decides to be a gentleman and let Nora have his bed while he sleeps on a chair. Nora tries to point out that he couldn't possible sleep like that, but after only a few moments to apparently get comfortable, he's out like a light.
  • The fact that the team completely fail to realize Ray is hiding Nora on the ship.

    Episode 12 - The Eggplant, The Witch and The Wardrobe 
  • Nate is still trying to process that Hank was building a magical creature-based amusement park in secret, and when we catch up to him at the start of the episode, he has roped Gary into shredding all related paperwork for it in a panic:
    Gary: Wait... we're the bad guys?
    Nate: I don't know who we are, Gary! Alright, we're the guys trying to keep my dad's cracked-out idea of "Jur-Magic Park" from tanking the Time Bureau!
    • In spite of the above, it comes off as a mild surprise how well he takes Ray's revelation that A) Nora didn't kill Hank and B) Hank was working with a demon. That isn't to say Nate is okay with the revelation, mind you; he's just mentally adding it to the pile that is now the mess that is his life.
    • When they discover Hank's cell phone in the office when it begins ringing, Nate reacts in kind: "If this is my dad's mistress, I'm gonna jump out a window."
      • In order to cover up that Hank isn't the one who picked up, Nate disguises his voice in order to sound like him... except it comes off more like Patrick Warburton.
  • Ava's mental purgatory, for whatever reason, is structured like a knockoff Ikea. And Gary is there as one of the employees, something Ava chalks up to being reflective of unresolved Gary-related issues.
  • While it doubles as a Tear Jerker due to how desperate Ava is to "get out of here", when Sara finds her, she's about to go through the checkout with a small plant.
  • In the trailer for the episode, a big deal is made out of Sara's line to Ava "If you checkout, you die." So, when she actually gets to say it in the epsiode:
  • The team mock Zari's wind powers.
    Mick: You're a human hairdryer.
  • The team are brought into the situation.
    Mona: Ava's in Hell?
    Nora: Actually not in Hell. Her soul is trapped in limbo.
    Gary: (racing in) And I am right there with her!
  • Mick offers Zari love advice for Nate.
    Zari: I'm not saying "bulge."

    Episode 13 - Egg Mac Guffin

    Ava: I mean, what the hell was that?

  • Ray's choice of words upon discovering his hand has a mind of his own? "Not groovy. Not groovy at all."
  • Mick at first refuses to show up as Rebecca Silver at a convention...until he hears the $20,000 offer.
  • When Nate brings Ray in for a hug due to assuming he's acting cagey and on edge due to Nora's coma, Ray awkwardly reciprocates (due to having to hide the fact his hand is pulsating with evil energy). Nate then repremands him for the weak ass hug and makes him put effort into it.
    • Due to Neron refusing to let Ray explain what is going on, what ultimately clues Nate in to Ray being possessed? Neron making a knife fly into Ray's grasp.
  • The entire bit of Charlie posing as Rebecca at a convention.
    • Mick "training" her in the role has to be seen to be believed.
  • Sara approaching reading Mick's book like it's a major mission. Then deciding to listen to the audiobook while on the treadmill. Which she then puts on fast-forward.
  • Zari checking out Nate as he's ducking and weaving through the tripwires (in an obvious, gender-flipped parody of Entrapment).
  • Zari and Nate state how ridiculous the mission they're on is, saying the only thing that's missing is Nazis. Cue two Nazis walking into the room.
    • More over, due to them discovering the golden egg was replaced by a fake one, Nate and Zari immediately assume Sara fabricated the mission just to make their date interesting. And this lasts all the way up to them contacting Sara right as they are tied up and about to be shot for real.
  • How does Neron!Ray try to convince Gary to join him? By returning his bitten-off nipple to him! And it works!
    • The nipple slowly crawling towards Gary? Gross. Gary saying "it's... beautiful"? Hilarious.
    • Just the thought of Gary as a villain.
  • Sara and Ava betting $20 on whether Zari and Nate hook up before their mission ends.
  • One of Mick's erotic sci-fi novels is called Heat Waves.
  • After Sara goes through all the trouble of reading one of Mick's books for Mona and Ava's book club as part of her effort to share experiences with Ava, only for Ava to admit that she doesn't actual read the books — she just sits back, drinking wine and relaxing, while letting Mona ramble on about the books.

     Episode 14 - Nip/Stuck 
  • Nora's horrible Time Bureau photo with her eyes closed and a weird face.
    Ava: Maybe we can just use the photo from your wanted poster.
  • Constantine meeting his ancestor, who looks and sounds exactly like him. Clearly, he's thinking "so this is why people dislike me so much."
  • Gary's possessed nipple has the power to hypnotize anyone who looks at it. Just read that sentence again.
    • This leads to "nip-otize" becoming a recurring line.
      Ava: To cut a long story short, Gary nip-otized everyone.
      Nate: No, you're gonna have to explain that.
    • And how does Mona save the day? By biting the nipple off again.
  • How does Mona realize something is wrong? Because of how many agents recite "Gary Green is all the man we need."
  • Of course Ray has a special plan left behind just in case the ship gets caught in an avalanche. And it turns out the team had already burned through all of it without knowing.
  • Neron's cohort Tabitha is revealed to be none other than the Fairy Godmother from earlier in the season. Who then makes out with the possessed Ray, much to the disgust of the Legends.

     Episode 15 - Terms of Service 
  • Zari and Nate bond on how the "egg" is kicking.
  • Gary living it up in Ava's office complete with massages, three nipples and the Fairy Godmother not believing Gary is wasting his wishes like this.
  • The team's Lock-and-Load Montage includes Sara's batons, Mick's heat gun, Ava's pistol, Charlie's much bigger guns, and Zari with a belt of grenades.
    Zari: This feels like overkill.
  • Neron's #EyesApp is only trending at #3 after launch, behind a cat getting a bath and Kanye West releasing a new album.
  • Gary is the Fairy Godmother's host and all he could think of is to make Sara, Ava and Nora to join his bookclub and make himself Captain of the Waverider.
  • Sara tells the guys "move onto plan B."
    Zari: What's plan B?
    Mick: I only listen for my name.

    Ava: That's illegal, anyway...

     Episode 16 - Hey World 
  • Mona asks if Sara has seen an ogre around who "grunts and likes to drink beer?" Sara says to "ask Rory." Cut to the ogre and Mick having a drinking contest.
  • Nora talks of being Gary's fairy godmother.
    Constantine: And I thought I was the one being tortured.
    Nora: Tell me about it.
  • The Monitor shows up and anybody who's seen the "Supergirl" or "Arrow" finale will immediately assume he's there to stir up trouble and tease "Crisis on Infinite Earths" in someway. But no, all he does is munch on a bag of popcorn while watching the Legends' shenanigans for his own amusement.

    Mona: Be careful, they can smell fear.
    Gary: What if fear is my natural scent?
  • The return of the Killer Stein puppet.

    Savage: Ah, I love those groovy guys.
  • The Legends film a commercial for Hey-world, while dressed (and very poorly acting) as Kara, Oliver and Barry. Apparently, they tried to get the real deal but were turned down flat.
    • Nate reflects that their "Hard pass." was due to them skipping out on the yearly crossover.
  • After telling his son he loves him, Hank's ghost literally shoves Nate's ghost off of the rafters just so he can be brought back to life. And right in the middle of the "Sweet Baby James" singalong.
