"Young Justice: Failsafe (#1.16)" (2011)
Red Tornado: I must join the League. We will protect the planet at all costs. But should we fail, the responsibility falls to you.
Aqualad: We stand ready.

Red Tornado: Red Tornado to Cave. I fear I am all that remains of the League.
[Red Tornado is disintegrated]
Robin: RT!
Aqualad: We are Earth's heroes now.
Superboy: So what are we waiting for? A theme song?
Aqualad: A strategy. Earth's weapons are ineffective. And it has been made tragically clear that a direct attack will not succeed.

Miss Martian: Back to the Cave?
Aqualad: The Hall of Justice. The human race must know that there are still heroes defending them - there is still hope.

General Wade Eiling: I don't know who you are, son, and I don't care. But you wear the S, and you got the job done.
Superboy: I'm not Superman.
General Wade Eiling: Tell that to the enemy. General Wade Eiling. United States Air Force.
Aqualad: Aqualad. Justice League. We'll help you salvage as many of the alien cannons as possible. Then we start taking back what is ours!

Aqualad: [as they're about to use the Boom Tubes to escape] Send the soldiers first.
General Wade Eiling: Belay that! You six are assets we cannot afford to lose.

Aqualad: [Throwing Martian Manhunter into the Boom Tube] They need you more than me!


"Young Justice: Independence Day: Part 2 (#1.2)" (2010)
Robin: He can talk?
Superboy: Yes, he can.
Robin: Not like I said, "it."
Aqualad: The genomorph taught you.
Superboy: They taught me much. I can read, write. I know the names of things.
Robin: But have you seen them? Have they actually let you see the sky or the moon?
Superboy: Images are implanted in my mind, but no. I have not seen them.
Aqualad: Do you know what you are, who you are?
Superboy: I am the Superboy, a genomorph, a clone made from the DNA made from the Superman, created to replace him should he perish, to destroy him should he return from the light.
Aqualad: To be like Superman is a worthy aspiration, but, like Superman, you deserve a life of your own beyond that solar suit, beyond that pod, beyond Cadmus.
Superboy: I live because of Cadmus! It is my home!
Robin: Your home is a test tube. We can show you the sun.
Kid Flash: Uh, pretty sure it's after midnight, but we can show you the moon.
Aqualad: We can show you, introduce you to Superman.

Aqualad: [telepathically] Superboy, you live. That gives you the right to follow your own path. A weapon or a person, the choice is yours, but ask yourself, "What would Superman do?"

The Flash: You should have called us.
Batman: End results aside, we're not happy. You hacked Justice League systems, disobeyed direct orders, and endangered lives. You will not be doing this again.
Aqualad: I am sorry, but we will.
Aquaman: Aqualad, stand down.
Aqualad: Apologies, my king, but no. We did good work here tonight, the work you trained us to do. Together on our own we forged something powerful, important.
The Flash: If this is about your treatment at the Hall, the three of you...
Kid Flash: The four of us, and it's not.
Robin: Batman, we're ready to do what you taught us, or why teach us at all?
Superboy: Why let them tell us what to do? It's simple. Get on board or get out of the way.

Aqualad: [as Superboy is fighting] Superboy. The goal is escape. Not to bury ourselves here.
Superboy: YOU WANT ESCAPE?

Aqualad: [after Kid Flash runs into a barrier] We're cut off from the street.
Kid Flash: Thanks. My head hadn't noticed.


"Young Justice: Humanity (#1.15)" (2011)
Zatanna Zatara: We're not really taking a tour, are we?
Superboy: No. We're hunting down that robot.
Aqualad: Yes! We are!
Zatanna Zatara: Wow. Out loud and everything.
Artemis: What about the new girl?
Robin: I'm sure she won't tell.
Zatanna Zatara: I can't tell. Not if you kidnap me.
Artemis: Oh she's going to fit in great.

Superboy: What's our ETA to Yellowstone? I'm way past ready to stuff Tornado into a trash compactor.
Aqualad: Are you certain he betrayed us?
Superboy: Aren't you?
Aqualad: I am not convinced. And even so, that makes him but a victim of his creator's programming. Certainly he deserves the chance to prove he's more than the weapon others designed him to be.

Aqualad: I recommend you stay behind.
Zatanna Zatara: Is that an order?
Aqualad: No. You must do as you see fit.
Zatanna Zatara: Good.
[Zatanna changes into her uniform]

Miss Martian: Hello M'Gann. You wanted to become more human.
Artemis: And you couldn't do that with the League. They're stiffs.
Robin: You're sure not going to learn emotion from Batman. Trust me.
Aqualad: Then the cave was not a proving ground only for us - but for you as well.
Red Tornado: I do not know if those statements are accurate - but perhaps they are true. And if I understand the term correctly, I believe I have come to - care about you all.
Superboy: See? Practically a meatbag already.


"Young Justice: Independence Day (#1.1)" (2010)
Aqualad: What else aren't they telling us?
Robin: I have a better question. Why didn't we leave with Speedy?

Aqualad: But they said "Stay put."
Robin: For the blotting out the sun mission, not this?
Kid Flash: [to Robin] Wait. Are - are you going to Cadmus? Because if you're going, I'm going!
[They both look at Aqualad]
Aqualad: Just like that? We're a team on mission?
Robin: We didn't come for a playdate.

Kid Flash: [Finding Superboy in a cryogenic tube] Big K little R, the atomic symbol for Krypton. Clone?
Aqualad: Robin. Hack!
Robin: Right. Right.

Kid Flash: They're making a slave out of - well, Superman's son.
Aqualad: Now we contact the League.


"Young Justice: Revelation (#1.14)" (2011)
Artemis: [after she loses her quiver] I feel naked, and not in a fun way.
Aqualad: We will make our own fun, as we have been trained. Maneuver 7!

Aqualad: [to Miss Martian] Plan B.
Wotan: [the ship drops the duffle bag, revealing the contents] The Helmet of Fate.
Kid Flash: No, Aqualad! Don't...
[Kid Flash is attacked. Aqualad puts on the helmet]
Kid Flash: Oh dude.
Dr. Fate: Wotan. You are mine!

Kid Flash: WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? HOW COULD YOU LET HIM PUT ON THE HELMET? Nabu will never release him now. Kaldur will be trapped inside Dr. Fate forever.
[Fate removes his helmet]
Kid Flash: Nabu let you go?
Aqualad: He almost did not. But your friend Kent was most helpful... He says "Hello."


"Young Justice: Drop-Zone (#1.4)" (2011)
Bane: [Robin has disappeared] Has that little fool already been captured?
Aqualad: No. He just does that.
Kid Flash: Stay put. I'll get our intel and be back before Boy Wonder.
[Runs off]
Aqualad: Wait. Kid!

Aqualad: You do have the most experience. But perhaps that is exactly what has left you unprepared. Fighting aloneside Batman, your roles are clearly defined. You two do not need to talk. But this team is new. And a leader needs to be clear, explicit. He cannot vanish and expect others to play part in an unknown plan.
Robin: Oh, so I'm supposed to hold everyone's hand?
[groans]
Robin: Who am I kidding? You should lead us, Kaldur. You're the only one who can.

Aqualad: [Affect being selected as leader] Then I accept the burden.
[to Robin]
Aqualad: Until you are ready to lift it from my shoulders. You were born to lead this team. Maybe not now - but soon.


"The Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure" (1967)
Aqualad: Every plankton in the area is growing.
Black Manta: Ha ha. Farewell Sea King. I leave you to your fate.

Aquaman: And he got him.
Aqualad: Poor Tusky.
Aquaman: No, poor Captain Sly.
Captain Sly: Please, be a good walrus, let me go.


"Teen Titans: Titans East: Part 2 (#3.13)" (2005)
[first lines]
Robin: [over video link] And you're sure there's nothing I can say to change your mind?
Cyborg: No, man. I'm stayin' in Steel City as leader of the Titans East. That's it. End of discussion.
Robin: Well, could you at least tell me why? I mean, I'm losing a member of my team here, and it's not like I can read your thoughts.
Cyborg: They need me, and this is my big chance. I'm ready to show people what I can do. I'm ready to grow up, to be a man.
Robin: And what about Brother Blood?
Cyborg: What about him?
Robin: I know how badly you want to catch him, and I know a thing or two about being obsessed with your target. Look, I just worry about what you're getting yourself into.
Cyborg: You think I can't handle it.
Robin: I didn't say that.
Cyborg: You didn't have to. Man, this is supposed to be a good thing! My own tower! My own team! Why can't you just be happy for me!
Robin: Because you're already on a team. My team! And you can't just quit!
Cyborg: I can, and I did! Which means I don't have to put up with you tellin' what to do anymore!
Robin: So, now this is my fault?
Cyborg: It's not *about* you!
Robin: No. It's all about you because that's all you care about! You talk about being a man, but if you can turn your back on us after *everything* we've been through, you're nothing but a spoiled child!
Cyborg: [firmly] I'm staying. I don't care what you say, I don't care what you do, and right now, I don't care if I ever see you again.
[Cyborg end the communication by switching off the screen and walking away]
Cyborg: [Aqualad observes from an adjacent hallway. He is with Mas y Menos, Bumblebee, and Speedy, their eyes glowing red]
Aqualad: [speaking into a communicator] He's broken contact with the Titans, Headmaster. We will proceed on your command.
Brother Blood: [over communicator] Wonderful, my students. Brother Blood is very happy.
[pan down to a lower level of the tower where various monitors playback surveillance footage as Brother Blood lounges in what appears to be a dentistry chair]
Brother Blood: Continue the charade. Cyborg mustn't suspect that I've recruited you until I'm finally ready to recruit *him*, and I should be ready in a matter of hours.
Brother Blood: [he opens his eyes, also glowing red] Isn't that right, Professor Chang?
[Professor Chang's goggles also glow red. He pulls out a two-pronged knife. Close on Brother Blood's left eye as his eyebrow tightens and the eye flares red]

Cyborg: Yo, Speedy! Get your butt over here.
[Aqualad and Mas Y Menos join Bumblebee and Cyborg at the table]
Cyborg: After the way I've been workin' y'all in combat practice, I figured my team could use a good meal, so, say hello to homemade spaghetti with Chef Cyborg's Triple-Meat Sauce!
[POV inside 3-foot-tall pot, it opens. Spaghetti and sauce frame the circular view as Aqualad, Mas Y Menos, and Bumblebee look inside. Aqualad inhales deeply]
Aqualad: Woah, Cyborg, that smells incredible!
Mas: [chicken] ¡Carne con...
Mas: [pig] carne con...
Mas: [cow] carne!
Menos: ¡No puedo creerlo!
Mas Y Menos: [collapsing] Ahhhhh...
Bumblebee: Mmm, mmm! What did we do to deserve this?
Cyborg: Just my way of sayin', "Thanks for makin' me boss."


"Young Justice: Schooled (#1.5)" (2011)
Robin: Help me disassemble him! NOW!
Kid Flash: Dude. The guy has no head.
Aqualad: Don't take any chances!

Batman: Of course, there's no shame in asking for help. That's why the League exists. Because there's some problems even *we* can't handle individually.
Robin: Please, if we needed help, wWe'd never get the chance to ask.
[Pulls out an arrow. Green Arrow takes out one of his arrows and compares the two]
Robin: Look familiar? You were following us. Babysitting! YOU STILL DON'T TRUST US!
Batman: We didn't follow you.
Robin: And that's not your arrow... But that means...
Kid Flash: Speedy!
Aqualad: He has our backs!


"Young Justice: Endgame (#2.20)" (2013)
Black Beetle: Time to leave this meat infested world.
Reach Scientist: Warrior, look!
[Gestures to their cameras]
Reach Scientist: The infestation is aboard Ship!
Black Beetle: Enough. The ambassador tied my hands, but the ambassador is gone. Now all the hero meat will die.
Aqualad: I would not be so sure.

Aqualad: You are alone.
Black Beetle: I am insufficient.


"Young Justice: Infiltrator (#1.6)" (2011)
Kid Flash: [to Artemis] This was all your fault. You were on the perimeter! How'd that Shadow get in?
Miss Martian: That's not really fair. I was outside too.
Kid Flash: Outside being distracted by her. Besides I can't be mad at you.
[Telepatically]
Kid Flash: You gave me mouth-to-mouth.
Miss Martian, Aqualad, Artemis: We heard that!
Kid Flash: Dang it!

Aqualad: [Telepathically] Stop it, both of you!
Kid Flash, Artemis: What?
Aqualad: I can hear you glaring!


"Young Justice: Alpha Male (#1.13)" (2011)
Captain Marvel: Actually, you let everyone split up before communications were set.
Aqualad: They would not listen
Captain Marvel: I guess. But back at the cave, Batman stopped everyone from fighting with just one word.
Aqualad: Because Batman is... Batman.

Robin: Look, I need to know, why did you keep the mole intel secret?
Aqualad: [pause. Everyone stares at Aqualad] The source of the tip was Sportsmaster.
Artemis: WHAT? You can't trust him!
Aqualad: I do not. It seemed possible even likely that he was attempting to divide the team with false information.
Robin: And given how the mission went, he almost succeeded. But you had to consider it might be true.
Aqualad: Yes, as leader, I did. In which case, I did not wish to alert the traitor.
Robin: I hate to say it, but it makes sense.
Aqualad: I am still prepared to step down.
Kid Flash: [Raising his hand] All in favor of keeping Aqualad as leader.
[Everyone raises their hand]
Captain Marvel: Guess it's unanimous.


"Teen Titans: Deep Six (#1.8)" (2003)
Aqualad: And while he's helping you, I'll track down Trident.
Beast Boy: You mean *I'll* track down Trident.
Aqualad: That's okay I can handle it.
Beast Boy: Thanks, but I think I...
Aqualad: Seriously, I'll take care of it.
Beast Boy: Would you just get out of my...
Aqualad, Beast Boy: [shouting] Let me go!
[start fighting over each other]
Robin: Guys, why don't you both track him down, together?
Aqualad: I usually work alone.
Beast Boy: Yeah, me too.
Aqualad: You do not! You're part of a team!
Beast Boy: And you hang out with Tram the fish boy, what's your point?


"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: Sidekicks Assemble! (#2.6)" (2010)
Young Speedy: Golly! That was exciting! Hey, maybe when we grow up, we can join forces. You know, like a real crime-fighting team.
Young Robin: That's the dumbest idea I've ever heard. Besides, who'd be in charge?
Young Aqualad: Not you, birdbrain, that's for sure.
Young Robin: You think you can do a better job?
Young Speedy: I say whoever takes down the most badguys gets to be leader. What do you say?
Young Robin, Young Aqualad: Bring it on.


"Young Justice: Downtime (#1.8)" (2011)
Aqualad: I am sorry you had to intervene. I know the team performed poorly.
Batman: The team performed adequately. The problem was *you*. You're their leader, and your head wasn't in the game.
Aqualad: No, you are
[sighs]
Aqualad: correct. Of late, I am not even convinced I belong on the surface world. For so many years, it filled my every thought. But now that I am here, my dreams are all of Atlantis.
Batman: Atlantis or someone you left behind? You can split your time between the surface and the sea. But not your mind. Either you're here 100% or you need to walk away. Make a, decision, Kaldur, and make it soon.


"Teen Titans: Winner Take All (#2.9)" (2004)
Beast Boy: Aquadude, what's up! Ready to watch me win all those prizes?
Aqualad: No. But after I win, I promise to let you have my autograph.


"Young Justice: Auld Acquaintance (#1.26)" (2012)
Aqualad: Something else is wrong.
Robin: The entire League was under Savage's spell for just over a day. We accounted for most of that time, but these six -
[Shows images of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Hawk Woman, John Stewart and Martian Man-hunter]
Robin: ... Went missing for a full 16 hours we *can't* account for.
Batman: Sixteen hours. What did we do?


"Teen Titans: Titans East: Part 1 (#3.12)" (2005)
Aqualad: Fish tacos? Are you crazy? I'm from the ocean! These could be friends of mine!
Speedy: You said "Get lunch" and I did, so chow!
