Superman/Batman: Apocalypse (2010) (V)
Batman: Does any of this fill in your memory lapses?
Kara: Some. I know that's my Uncle Jor-El and my Aunt Lara.
Batman: Because Superman, Kal-El, told you.
Kara: No. Because I remember. Uncle Jor-El was like my father. They both believed the planet was doomed which is why my father also built a ship. He told me the navigation system was locked onto Earth and that he and my mother would soon follow. I was just about out when I saw them die, right before my eyes. And then there was that light, that awful, blistering light. Then, all I remember is darkness. The rest you told me. How the asteroid carried me across the galaxy until it broke apart and I landed here.
Batman: Do you remember your mother's name?
Kara: You know I don't. Why don't you trust me?
Batman: Kal-El has enemies who would go to great lengths to destroy him.
Kara: You think I would hurt my own cousin?
Batman: Perhaps not intentionally.
Kara: I sensed your presence earlier because I thought I heard your heartbeat. I was wrong. You have no heart.

Kara: Oh, my gosh. That was so much fun. I'm going to love being an Earth girl.
Clark Kent: You've certainly got the shopping part down.

Kara: It's so beautiful here. Not like that other city where Grumpy Ass lives.
Clark Kent: Grumpy Ass isn't so bad once you get to know him.

Superman: Darkseid. Kara leaves with me.
Darkseid: She's free to leave, if that is what she desires.
[Kara appears next to Darkseid's throne, wearing garb of red and black]
Superman: Kara?
Kara: Hello, Kal.
Superman: Kara...
Kara: I'm fine, Kal, really.
Superman: I don't know what he's done to you, but the nightmare's over. You're safe now.
Darkseid: You're right, she is safe now.
Superman: Let's go home.
Kara: That's the problem, cousin. I'm not sure where home is.
Superman: You're just confused.
[Superman grabs Kara's hand and starts pulling her away]
Superman: [to Darkseid] I'll be back. You and I have some unfinished...
Kara: [Pulls away from Superman] You didn't listen to what Darkseid said.
Superman: Kara...
Kara: You never listen to anyone!
[Punches Superman across the room]
Kara: He said I was free to go, if I wanted to!
[Kicks Superman]
Kara: And I don't want to.
Darkseid: Good. Now kill him.
Superman: I won't fight you.
Kara: Good. Makes my job that much easier.

Lyla: Kara, when I first came here, I was confused too. Able to see into the past, the future, yet not having a clue what to do with my own life. A harbinger for everyone but myself. Diana took me in without hesitation. If you need someone to turn to, you can trust her.
Kara: You've all made me feel so welcome. Especially you, Lyla. I feel like you're the only friend I have right now.

Kara: All these years of pretending to be human have made you soft.
[holds Superman in the air starts choking him]
Superman: [gasping] Kara, he's controlling you! Fight it!
Darkseid: Do not hesitate! Kill him!
Kara: As you wish, Lord Darkseid.

Kara: With your death, cousin, my life begins here on Apokolips.

Kara: It's attacking.
Superman: What's attacking?
Kara: [points at Krypto] That.
Superman: Krypto. No. Bad dog. Kara's a friend. Leave her alone.
Kara: I'm sorry, I- I tried to get him to like me, but he just barks and growls, he hates me.

Kara: I remember dreaming, a horrible nightmare. All I wanted to do was get home. I did terrible things.
Superman: Darkseid lives for manipulation. He has hypnotists, scientists and sadists whose only functions are to break your spirit. Darkseid is evil.
Kara: But did he influence me? Or just bring back out a darkness that is already there?
Superman: You're here with me. And you're okay. Nothing else matters.

Kara: I think I'm gonna like it here.
Clark Kent: It can be a little quiet.
Kara: Kal, I've been chased, shot at, kidnapped, beaten up, had my mind controlled and I broke a nail. I'm ready for a little quiet.
Clark Kent: If I know my mother, she'll have some her famous apple pie waiting. You okay?
Kara: Little nervous, I guess. It's just, you have this life. You can be Clark, or Kal-El, or Superman. Even a son. Who am I going to be?
Clark Kent: I can't answer that, Kara. Only you can. Whatever you decide, I'll be there for you. I promise.

Superman: Mom, Dad, this is Kara. My cousin? Your niece?
Kara: Mr. Kent, Mrs. Kent. It's so to finally meet you. I've heard so much about you both.
[the house collapses from its damage]
Superman: Don't worry. I can build a new one.
Kara: I can help. I'm great with a hammer. I can pound. I'm a good pounder.


"Supergirl: Pilot (#1.1)" (2015)
Kara Danvers: [on discovering that Cat dubbed her "Supergirl"] "Supergirl"? We can't name her that!
Cat Grant: *We* didn't.
Kara Danvers: Right, I'm sorry. It's just, uh... A female superhero. Shouldn't she be called Super... woman?
Cat Grant: I'm sorry, darling, I just can't hear you over the loud color of your cheap pants.
Kara Danvers: If we call her "Supergirl", something less than what she is, doesn't that make us guilty of, of being anti-feminist? Didn't you say she's the hero?
Cat Grant: *I'm* the hero. I stuck a label on the side of the girl. I branded her. She will forever be linked to CatCo, to the Tribune, to me. And what do you think is so bad about "Girl?" Huh? I'm a girl. And your boss, and powerful, and rich, and hot and smart. So if you perceive "Supergirl" as anything less than excellent, isn't the real problem you?

Hank Henshaw: Your ship. We keep it here as a reminder of the day you crashed on Earth. You're the reason for all of this.
Kara Danvers: Me? But... My... But my cousin was here two dozen years before me.
Hank Henshaw: And it was his arrival that triggered the need for this organization. We realized we weren't alone in the universe and we might soon would be getting more... immigrants. Sure enough, you came along. And with you, Fort Rozz.
Kara Danvers: Fort Rozz?
Hank Henshaw: Krypton's maximum security prison. Banished to the Phantom Zone, same place your ship got stuck. But just like yours, it didn't stay there. We're not sure how your pod got loose. What we do know is this. You pulled Fort Rozz with you. When it crashed, the alien convicts, the worst criminals in the galaxy, they all escaped. And you brought them here. These beings, some of them have powers from your darkest nightmares. For over a decade, they've stayed hidden. But in the last year many have been emerging,
Kara Danvers: I can help you stop them.
Hank Henshaw: How? You couldn't even stop us from capturing you.
Kara Danvers: I... I'm still learning.
Hank Henshaw: Our job is keeping people in the dark about alien life on Earth, and nothing says "covert operation" like a flying woman in a red skirt.
Kara Danvers: They know about my cousin, they don't fear him.
Hank Henshaw: Plenty of people do, just not popular to admit it. You wanna help? Go back to getting somebody's coffee.

[first lines]
Kara Danvers: My name is Kara Zor-El. 24 years ago, my planet, Krypton, was in serious peril. My cousin, Kal-El, was sent to a planet called Earth for his own safety and protection. You may know his story. The story you don't know is that I was sent to protect him.

Kara Danvers: Things didn't exactly go according to my mothers plan. Krypton's destruction sent a shock wave that knocked my pod off course and into the Phantom Zone. A region of space where time doesn't pass. I slept there for 24 years until somehow I got here. When I arrived, I was still a 13-year-old girl. But in that same time, my cousin Kal-El had grown up and revealed himself to your world as Superman. The most powerful man in the universe. My cousin wanted me to have the same safe human-type childhood he did. So he placed me with my adoptive family, the Danvers. Scientists who once helped him understand his own super abilities.

Kara Danvers: You're downsizing the Tribune? But that was your first acquisition.
Cat Grant: Go see if the new art director has the layout ready. It's not that I don't see your frown, it's just not I don't care enough to ask why it's there.
Kara Danvers: All those people, they're going to lose their jobs. What's going to happen to them, their families? They don't have to downsize at the Daily Planet.
Cat Grant: Metropolis has a person who wears a cape and flies around performing heroic acts. The Planet puts this superlative man on their cover 54% of the time. You want to save the Trib? Go find me a hero, Kerah.

Kara Danvers: Pretty cool, huh?
Winn Schott: A plane saving lady? How is the world supposed to take her seriously if she can't even come up with a suit? What... Metropolis gets him and what does National City get? Some rookie superhero?

Kara Danvers: Uh, there's something about me that for most of my life, I've run from it. But last night, I embraced who I am and I don't want to stop.
Winn Schott: Oh, my God, you're a lesbian. Oh, Kara, that's not why you're into me. This is... this is great news!
Kara Danvers: I'm not gay! I'm... I'm her! The woman who saved the plane!
Winn Schott: Okay. Yeah, okay. Right.
[Kara walks toward the ledge]
Winn Schott: Kara, what are you doing? Hey, Kara! Hey, get away from the ledge, you're gonna get hurt.
[Kara jumps off]
Winn Schott: Kara! Hey!
[Kara flies back up and lands on the roof]
Winn Schott: You're... You're her.
Kara Danvers: Yup.

Kara Danvers: I'm not flying around saving people in this thing. I... I wouldn't even wear it to the beach. Where's my cape?
Winn Schott: Capes are lame. You can tell your cousin I said so. Actually, never, never do that.

Winn Schott: This one has the "S". For "Super", just like your cousin.
Kara Danvers: It's not an "S". It's my family coat of arms. The House of El.

Winn Schott: Uh,if... If I believe the comments on the website, they mentioned a "female/reptilian boxing match in the desert".
Kara Danvers: I'll tell you all about it in our next crime-fighting lunch hour.
Winn Schott: Wait, so the Super-Friends are back?
Kara Danvers: We're not calling ourselves that.

James Olsen: Here. From him.
Kara Danvers: It's the blanket he was wrapped in when he was a baby.
James Olsen: He's really proud of you. Me too. Now, don't you have a city to protect? You now... Up, up and away?


"Supergirl: Fight or Flight (#1.3)" (2015)
Kara Danvers: Reactron? That's kind of a stupid name. Who called him that?

Kara Danvers: [arguing over dinner with Alex] If that pot sticker is not in my mouth in two seconds, I'm gonna melt your face.

Winn Schott: Ah. An interesting choice of mentioning that in an interview. Isn't that a little dangerous?
Kara Danvers: I didn't mean to. I got confused. It just popped out. She... She tricked me. She's like a villain. She's like a super interviewing villain.
Winn Schott: That is literally the most boring power ever.

Cat Grant: Bulletproof.
Kara Danvers: Are you asking me if I'm bullet...
Cat Grant: Bulletproof Coffee. It's made from unsalted grass-fed butter with an extract of coconut oil that improves brain energy. I will need a cup of it every hour. Crappy coffee has toxins in it that will rob me of my creativity and vigor. I'm going to need both if I'm going to write a kick-ass expose on Supergirl.

Hank Henshaw: Have you lost your mind? What were you thinking giving interviews?
Kara Danvers: I wouldn't say it was an interview exactly. It was more of a private conversation that's being published.
Hank Henshaw: What's next? A book deal? A reality show? Keeping Up with the Kryptonians?

Kara Danvers: So what are you saying? We just sit back and do nothing?
Hank Henshaw: Reactron, whoever he is, is human. Which means this case falls out of the DEO's jurisdiction.
Kara Danvers: This man flies and shoots nuclear fireballs! How is that not extra-normal?
Alex Danvers: He's using advanced biomedical tech. Man-made tech.
Hank Henshaw: I can't risk exposing this organization every time some human criminal shows up in National City.
Kara Danvers: And I can't just let the man run wild.
Hank Henshaw: Call your cousin. Superman fights for truth, justice and the American way. Last time I checked, National City was in America.

James Olsen: I'm just trying to keep you safe.
Kara Danvers: And, yes, I appreciate that. But of all the things the "S" stands for, safety is not one of them.

James Olsen: [shows his signal watch] Kara, he gave me this a long time ago. If I ever got in trouble, I could contact him.
Kara Danvers: But you weren't in trouble. When did you even call him? The second I left?
James Olsen: Kara, I made a promise to your cousin. If anything ever happened to you...
Kara Danvers: My cousin doesn't get a "get out of a jam card" when he first started. Neither should I.

Kara Danvers: It wasn't supposed to be this way. This is the reason my mother and father sent me to Earth.
Alex Danvers: They wanted you to live.
Kara Danvers: No, it's more than that. I was supposed to be the one saving him, not the other way around. How am I supposed to really become a hero if Superman has to keep saving me?
Alex Danvers: Your story... Your story is just starting. And some day you're gonna be the one saving him.


Supergirl (1984)
Kara: [about Zaltar's creative illusion] Oh, it is beautiful. What's that gonna be, Zaltar?
Zaltar: I think, a tree.
Kara: A tree. What is a tree?
Zaltar: A lovely thing which grows on Earth.
Kara: Earth? You mean where my cousin went?
Zaltar: And to where one day soon perhaps I might venture as well.
Kara: I don't believe you. How?
Zaltar: In that.
[points to a transportation device]
Zaltar: Through there.
[points to the Binary Chute]
Kara: The Binary Chute? But you could never survive the pressure. It would destroy you...
Zaltar: [interrupting] That I can, zip zap, and I'm gone.
Kara: But you'd never leave us, Zaltar. You'd never leave Argo City.
Zaltar: Indeed I might, Kara. Too much of a good thing here. Perhaps I'll try Saturn instead. Yes, I think I might.
Kara: Saturn is... Is that further away than Earth?
Zaltar: Silly question. Did you not study sixth-dimensional geometry at school? Do they not teach you anything anymore?
Kara: Well, of course they do. Uh, I know the equations. Uh - I just can't see them in my head.
Zaltar: Most great artists find mathematics troublesome, Kara. Only use your imagination. Saturn and Earth are in outer space, but we - we are in inner space.

Kara: [in response to Zaltar's pessimism about escaping the Phantom Zone] You're right. You're absolutely right. There is enough doom and gloom in the air already. And, it is better to accept defeat than to take a chance and try like fools to redeem ourselves, and save our city and all those who we love there, plus all the people on earth that this wicked sorceress is going to make suffer, just because of us - cheaters.
[raises nozzle in mock toast]
Zaltar: We could die trying.
Kara: We won't. We won't. Come on!
[exits Zaltar's domicile up stairway]

Lucy Lane: All you need is a couple of streaks and your ears pierced. I could do it for you, it's easy. You just get a needle, heat it up, dab it with some alcohol, and zap! The guys go crazy!
Linda Lee: My ears what?
Lucy Lane: Pierced. Like and you know, I take a needle, and then I heat it up, dab it with some alcohol and, zap, all the guys go crazy.
Linda Lee: Because I have holes in my ears?
Lucy Lane: What, are you putting me on? Sometimes I can't figure you out, Linda.

Lucy Lane: Look at that dingleberry.
Linda Lee: What's a dingleberry?

Mr. Danvers: Lucy Lee, this is Linda Lane.
Lucy Lane: No, it isn't. She's Linda Lee, and I'm...
Linda Lee: Lucy Lane.
Mr. Danvers: You two know each other?
Linda Lee: Oh, no, we just met.
Mr. Danvers: Really? When?
Lucy Lane: Just now. Though we've known each other for years, haven't we, Linda?
Linda Lee: Oh, gee, I don't think that.

Lucy Lane: So who's your cousin?
Linda Lee: Clark Kent.
Lucy Lane: Your kidding me. Clark Kent's your cousin? Your putting me on.
Linda Lee: Do you know him?
Lucy Lane: Do I know him? Does my sister know him? Now, that's the big question.

Nigel: Linda, are you with us?
Linda Lee: Um... Yes, sir, I am.
Nigel: Oh, are you? Where, might I ask?
Linda Lee: Well, here, sir, on Earth.

Mr. Danvers: One way or another we're all alone on this miserable little planet.
Linda Lee: Yes sir, I know.


"Smallville: Lara (#7.6)" (2007)
Kara: Please don't send me away father.
Zor-El: It's for the best. Until this war is over you'll be safer on Earth.
Kara: The journey takes three years.
Zor-El: It's the only way.
Kara: What if I never see you again?
Zor-El: I'm your father Kara, trust my wisdom.
Kara: Everything and everyone I love is here, on Krypton.
Zor-El: [shows Kara a crystal] This crystal is your way back to us. As long as you'll have it, the world you know and love will be safe.
Kara: Why can't you come with me?
Zor-El: I'm needed here to protect Kandor. You must protect the crystal. It contains instructions for what you must do when you rescue your cousin Kal-El.

Lara: Kara?
Kara: Hi, Aunt Lara.
Lara: You followed me?
Kara: Well... with the speed we have on this planet it wasn't hard.

Lara: Visiting me at home is one thing Kara, but sneaking through the last remaining portal to follow me here was far too dangerous!
Kara: I had to get out of Kandor. The war is been getting worst and I can hear the mines being bombed day and night.
Lara: Does Zor-El know you're here?
Kara: You know my father never let me out of Kandor alone, but he's been spending so much time in the lab, that it's easy to sneak away.
[pause]
Kara: Why are you here?
Lara: I... I wanted to see where my son may grow up.
Kara: What? But you don't have... Wait, you're pregnant? I'm so happy for you I know how much you and Jor-El wanted this!
Lara: He's our miracle baby.
Kara: I don't understand, why would he grow up here?
Lara: Kara... Krypton may never see the end of this war. Jor-El's BrainInteractiveConstruct may very well save us, but I won't risk my son's life on that chance.
Kara: Then I'll be there and I'll protect him.
Lara: As much as this pains me, it may be my only choice. I can't let the destiny of my child be dictated by the fate of our planet.
Kara: And aren't you worried about your son growing up with humans? When they're so... primitive.
Lara: Jor-El visited Earth many years ago and he chose this family, because he was impressed by their capacity of love.
Kara: If it's more impressive then the way they live...
Lara: It's one of many structures Kara, it's not the residence. Come, let me show you.

Kara: What if we get caught, Lara? Are this people here right now?
Lara: No, they're attending a spiritual celebration called Church. It's one of their traditions.
Kara: It sure smells a lot better in here.
Lara: I believe they're cooking..."Sunday Roast". It is so peaceful here compared to Krypton. It's a true home.
Kara: I don't know... It's kinda... small and cleathered.
[Kara lifts an object]
Lara: Be careful Kara, we must leave no trace of our visit. I don't wanna influence them in any way. They're destined to raise my child, it's important they feel secure.
Kara: Have you given your baby a name yet?
Lara: No. With everything happening on Krypton Jor-El and I have yet to discuss one.
Kara: He'll be so far from home... Our Sun will be nothing but a distant star... Maybe you could name him Kal-El. That way when he looks at the sky, he can think of us.
Lara: Kal-El... Oh, that's a beautiful name.

Kara: Why are you doing this? You're hurting me.
Special Agent Carter: Well, if I wasn't hurting you, you'd be hurting me. We humans--we call it "survival of the fittest."
Kara: I *am* human.

Special Agent Carter: I want to know about your home planet.
Kara: You're on it. It's called Earth.

Clark Kent: [opens Martha's portrait and find Lara's picture inside] I don't believe it. After all this time.
Kara: That means that I really was here, and everything that I saw was true.
Clark Kent: When I saw my mother in your memory, she was so beautiful... just as beautiful as she is in this picture. You really loved her, didn't you?
Kara: I did. Just like I love my father. Until now, I thought he was such a God--a real Kryptonian hero. But you're right. He was nothing like that.
Clark Kent: Your father did some terrible things. But in his own misguided way, I'm sure he loved you.


"Supergirl: Blood Bonds (#1.9)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: Whenever I'm confused or overwhelmed I come in your office and you somehow sense it-like your superpower. I know I'm not going to be your assistant for the rest of my life, but I do know whatever I do next will be easier because of everything you taught me. And the truth is I need you now more than I ever have.

Kara Danvers: I stopped by that food truck you like.
Alex Danvers: The one in Chicago? You are my favorite person.

Kara Danvers: Ms. Grant, they were out of lattes, so here's a coffee.
Cat Grant: Hmm. And here you are, delivering it to me as a normal, boring person.
Kara Danvers: Well, that's what I am. I'm very boring and really normal. So, um, I'll just get out of your hair.
Cat Grant: Why? Have a building to leap in a single bound?

Winn Schott: If you go after Maxwell Lord like this, then you know what, you're just proving him right. That you are no different from Astra or Non.
Kara Danvers: What if I'm not so different?
Winn Schott: You have to be, Kara. Because if you aren't, then we lose.

Hank Henshaw: You know, I wouldn't have minded you coming to work for the DEO full-time.
Kara Danvers: I can't leave this place. It's not just a secret identity to me. I almost did something today that I would have regretted the rest of my life.
Kara Danvers: What stopped you?
Hank Henshaw: My friends. The DEO keeps you human. They do that for me.

Kara Danvers: [Blood bonds us all]


"Supergirl: Worlds Finest (#1.18)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: What happened to Siobahn?
Winn Schott: Oh, well, after she went all Mariah Carey on you, she just split.
Barry Allen: Oh, so we both have Mariah Carey. That's something.

Kara Danvers: Barry's leaving town and I was gonna see him off.
Cat Grant: Okay. Tell Mr. Allen to have a good time zipping around in his red outfit.
Kara Danvers: Wait, you knew he was The Flash?
Cat Grant: Oh, please. Barry shows up, The Flash shows up. His insistence on that silly name. And he was so unfailingly charming and nice, that he had to be either a superhero or a Mormon.

Kara Danvers: I just wanted to talk to you about infinite Earths.
James Olsen: Infinite Earths?
Kara Danvers: Yeah. Uh, Barry was saying...
James Olsen: Barry was saying?
Kara Danvers: Yeah, Barry was explaining to us that there's an infinite number of Earths and they all vibrate at different speeds so they can occupy the same space, but never actually come into contact with each other. The point is, if two of these infinite Earths can manage find a way to vibrate at the exact same speed, maybe... Maybe there's a chance they can be together.
James Olsen: Kara... what are you trying to say?
Kara Danvers: No more saying. I'm so much better doing this.
[kisses James]

Kara Danvers: Miss Grant, you have to leave now.
Cat Grant: Ker-rah, I thought I told you to tell Bernie Sanders that I am not interested in Hot Yoga.

Cat Grant: There's a new superhero in National Coty. This is huge. Direct competition for Supergirl.
Kara Danvers: He doesn't HAVE to be... competition.
Cat Grant: Would you prefer... a sidekick?
Barry Allen: No, not a sidekick. More like an equal, or an ally...
[Winn pats Barry on the shoulder]
Barry Allen: ... a new - partner, maybe...
[Cat stares stoically at him; he nods]
Barry Allen: ... Speaking was the wrong choice. I see that now.

Barry Allen: So I whipped up these bad boys - sorry I keep saying bad boy...
Kara Danvers: Are they ear buds?
Barry Allen: Yeah, it'll protect us from Silver Banshee's "yelly" voice.


"Legends of Tomorrow: Invasion! (#2.7)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: Either of you have saved the world before?
Barry Allen: Mm-hmm.
Oliver Queen: Last year.
Barry Allen: It sure beats screwing up the world.
Kara Danvers: Hey, you are too hard on yourself.
Oliver Queen: That's what people usually tell me.
Kara Danvers: And for good reason, I'm sure. But, back on my Earth, it's just me and my cousin. Between the two of us, we're more powerful than...
Barry Allen: Yeah, everybody in this room combined.
Kara Danvers: No, no. That's the point. That's what you've all proven her. Meta-humans or not, superpowers or not, you are Earth's mightiest heroes.

Oliver Queen: I owe you an apology. Keeping you at arm's length was the wrong move, and... Well, the truth is that this Earth could probably use a Supergirl.
Kara Danvers: Well, that's... that's funny, 'cause I was just thinking my Earth could use an Oliver Queen.

Cisco Ramon: Hey, Kara, I made you something.
Kara Danvers: What?
Cisco Ramon: Yeah.
Kara Danvers: [as she opens the gift, she finds what looks like a brooch] Cisco! What, uh... what is it?
Cisco Ramon: Oh. It's, uh... it's an inter-dimensional extrapolater.
Kara Danvers: [blankly] Oh!
Cisco Ramon: It creates small breaches so you can use it to cross over to our universe any time you need to.
Kara Danvers: Oh, my god. That's amazing!
Cisco Ramon: I also included communication functionality, so if you ever need any help, you can always contact the team.

Kara Danvers: Agent Smith, it's so funny seeing you here. I was just having the loveliest chat with your president about you. I was telling her on my Earth, we have a Department of Extra-Normal Operations, which deals specifically with aliens. She thought it was an excellent idea. She also loved my pitch about reassigning you to Antarctica.
Nate Heywood: [she smirks and leaves] Maybe next time, you're a little nicer to strange visitors from another planet.

Kara Danvers: I know you said you don't unnverved.
Oliver Queen: Well...
Kara Danvers: But if you did, I think hardship is what makes us stronger. That's probably why these people look to you as their rock.


"Smallville: Supergirl (#10.3)" (2010)
Kara: I searched so long for my mother, and then I never found her. You and I are the last survivors of the House of El. And after everything we've been through together, I had to come back to the one place in the universe where I have family.
Clark Kent: Well, right you're doing right now flies in the face how I've chosen to live on this planet my whole life. We both know that. Now, if you really care about family, tell me what you're doing here and stop avoiding the question.
Kara: I didn't want to hurt you. Jor-El has given me a mission, and getting my powers and image around the city are a part of it.
Clark Kent: He *gave* you a mission? What did he say?
Kara: He's let you go, Kal-El. I'm sorry. He says you're no longer his son.

Kara: This is bigger than just Jor-El. A darkness has come to Earth. I've been trying to draw it toward me so I can stop it.
Clark Kent: *I* was the one sent to Earth to protect it. Jor-El should've come to me.
Kara: He said you're not ready.
Clark Kent: He's afraid that I'll fail. After all the trails and all the training that I've gone through. He's the one who's confused, because I know my own destiny.
Kara: Kal-El, you think you have all the answers. But the evil that's coming is like nothing you've ever seen. It takes advantage of people's doubts.
Clark Kent: There's nothing out there that I can't handle.
Kara: Pretty strong words from a guy who can't even figure out his own powers. It's the truth, Kal-El. You've been on Earth all this time, and you can't even fly? You can't come at this thing without all of your abilities.
Clark Kent: What if you can't fight it all on your own? You'd rather put the world at risk and trust Jor-El than believe in me? You're my only family. And I need your help.

[Clark falls and crashes into the barn trying to fly]
Kara: It was a start.
Clark Kent: It's not flying if it's mostly falling.

Kara: This dark force is like a disease.
Clark Kent: How did it become so powerful?
Kara: It can see your thoughts and feelings. It can find the one morsal of doubt that even the purest person doesn't realize they have inside of them. It can possess you. But it cannot possess someone who's pure of spirit. Who has true clarity of purpose, but your father...
Clark Kent: Thinks it'll prey upon some weakness inside of me.
Kara: Kal-El, if this dark force possesses someone with abilities like yours, you could be the greatest weapon this planet has ever seen.

Lois Lane: Somebody should put Godfrey in some serious restraints. Who knew Mr. Family Values had such a dark side?
Kara: Godfrey's not so special. There's two sides to everyone... even heroes.


"Smallville: Kara (#7.2)" (2007)
Kara: [to Clark] You can't be Kal-El. He's a sweet chubby baby who laughed when you tickled his feet.

Clark Kent: Kara, Krypton is gone.
Kara: What do you mean, gone?
Clark Kent: It exploded. You and I are the only survivors.
Kara: No. Planets don't just explode, Kal-El.
Clark Kent: Ours did. I'm sorry.
Kara: No. This yellow sun has fried your brain cells.

[Kara force opens elevators doors]
Clark Kent: Those doors would have opened if you'd have just waited.
Kara: We don't have time to wait for ancient technology. Between the two of us, we can cover more ground. Of course, it would help if you could defy gravity. Explain to me again why you can't fly.
Clark Kent: I'm not sure.
Kara: I guess the humans are right, Kal-El. Girls do mature faster than boys.
Clark Kent: It's Clark, remember?

Kara: [crushes Lois' cellphone] That's when happens when you touch my stuff.

Clark Kent: Kara, why are you searching for me?
Kara: My father Zor-El, told me to find you. That was my mission.
Clark Kent: Zor-El?
Kara: Zor-El and Jor-El are brothers.
Clark Kent: Then that makes us... cousins. Jor-El never mentioned your dad.


"Supergirl: Stronger Together (#1.2)" (2015)
Kara Danvers: James, part of being your own man is knowing when to ask for help.

Winn Schott: Oh, God. Is that smell you?
Kara Danvers: Three showers and I still smell of reek oil. I went from superhero to eco-terrorist in a single bound.

Kara Danvers: I am not doing that interview. No. I can't... I mean I can't. Ms. Grant's not stupid. She'd recognize me in, like, one second.
James Olsen: She will look at Supergirl right in the face and she will not see her assistant.
Kara Danvers: How can you be so sure?
James Olsen: Because she doesn't see you now. I watched it happen for years with your cousin. Why don't you think that people recognize him as Clark Kent?
Kara Danvers: Reading glasses and a good slouch?
James Olsen: No, he's able to hide because the world can't believe he's really a hero in their mist.
Kara Danvers: Yeah, and I'm sure there's a good reason why my cousin keeps his job at the Daily Planet instead of flying around as Superman al the time, which would be so much easier.
James Olsen: Yeah, well, one, he's able to pay his rent.

Kara Danvers: Maybe I put the "S" on too soon.
James Olsen: Kara, look at the window. Tell me what you see.
Kara Danvers: Buildings. Billboards. There's that bar where that guy cards me all the time. He knows how old I am.
James Olsen: I see a city full of people who need help. Who need a hero.
Kara Danvers: You really think so?
James Olsen: If anyone can fill Superman's boots... It's you.


"Smallville: Bloodline (#8.8)" (2008)
Kara: I'm leaving Smallville.
Clark Kent: Kara, you just got back.
Kara: When I was in that hellhole, I heard rumors that Kandor still exists. Kal-El, I think that a part of our civilization may have survived before the explosion, before the destruction of Krypton. There may be survivors there. If I can find that city, I can save our bloodline.
Clark Kent: Then I'll go with you.
Kara: Kal-El, there's a reason that you were sent to Earth and raised as a member of the Kent family. Your path is on Earth living amongst humans and inspiring mankind.
Clark Kent: We can do all of this together.
Kara: I can't. I don't fit in here. My journey's somewhere else.
Clark Kent: [hugs Kara] I'll miss you.
Kara: [shows her necklace with House of El symbol] See? You're always with me. Close to my heart.

Kara: What were you thinking bringing Lois here?
Clark Kent: Lois was there when I touched the crystal. We need to find a portal back.
Kara: I did. Zor-El built me an escape hatch.
Clark Kent: If you know a way out, then why are you still here?
Kara: I didn't want to make the same mistake you did. Zoners got out when you left. They're just waiting for me to open the portal again.
Clark Kent: So you stayed here all this time, fending for your life to protect Earth?
Kara: Your lifeline. You lose it, you die.

[referring to the portal's altar in order to escape from the Phantom Zone]
Lois Lane: *This* is our DeLorean?
Kara: We just have to touch it.

Kara: So, did your adventure with Lois end with you telling her your secret?
Clark Kent: Not exactly. All I ever wanted was to keep Lois from my secret. But yesterday, that nearly got her killed.
Kara: You want your cousin's two cents? Lois can handle it. She's tough... and strong. You wouldn't let her get so close if you didn't think so, too.
Clark Kent: I was beginning to miss these family lectures.


"Superman: Little Girl Lost (#2.27)" (1998)
Weatherman: So all of you folks in Smallville, Kansas, get out there and enjoy that great, big, beautiful sun.
[cut to Kara flying through the sky, until Clark pulls her down to the ground]
Kara: Hey!
Clark Kent: That's enough of that, Kara.
Kara: Hey, Clark. It was such a nice day, I just thought I'd, you know, vroom!
Clark Kent: What did we talk about? No "vroom" during the daytime.

Secretary: Mr. Kent, your cousin is here to see you.
Clark Kent: My cousin...?
[Kara appears, wearing big glasses and a brown wig]
Kara: [whispering] It's me, Kara.
Clark Kent: I know.
Kara: You saw through my secret identity?

Clark Kent: How'd you get here all the way from Kansas?
Kara: You told me not to "vroom" during the day. So I ran.


"Smallville: Prophecy (#10.20)" (2011)
Oliver Queen: I'm starting to regret not packing my intergalactic dictionary about now. No way these are Celtic.
Kara: No. They're Apokolyptian.
[sees Kara trapped in a ray beam]
Oliver Queen: You're Clark's cousin, Kara, right?
Kara: Yeah.
Oliver Queen: How long have you been down here? I got to get you out.
Kara: No, wait. It'll kill you.
[she throws a rock at the ray beam, the rock disintegrates]
Oliver Queen: Right. Okay. There's got to be some way to turn off this death ray from hell.

Jor-El: [voice] There are two paths laid before you, Kara. You can leave Earth now and allow Kal-El to embrace his destiny, or you can stay and help him, risking the future of this planet.
Kara: Kal-El and I have fought Darkseid before.
Jor-El: [voice] You involved Kal-El against my wishes. He was too weak then, and he was almost overcome by darkness. You have grown strong. Your will is no longer at the mercy of my command. You will need that strength to forge your own path. It is in your hands to choose.
Kara: You want me to just walk away?
Jor-El: [voice] Kara, your own destiny is written. It is in another place and time. But this is Kal-El's battle, and he must fight it alone. Even though a time will come when he turns away from me, in the end, he will make the right decision. He is ready. This is his time.
Kara: He's the only family I have left. I have to at least warn him.
Jor-El: [voice] Sometimes the greatest sacrifice a person can make is to give up what they hold most dear.

Oliver Queen: So let me get this straight - whoever wields the Bow of Orion can use it to vanquish darkness. Is that what you're saying?
Kara: According to the prophecy, yeah.
Oliver Queen: Well, that's me. Think about it - a bow, right? The medium is the message.
Kara: You never told me why you were seeking it.
Oliver Queen: Well, promise you won't tell anyone, but I'm trying to change my fate. The Bow of Orion is the key. It worked for him, right?
Kara: Only after he found the strength to turn away from the darkness, even though that meant turning away from his father.
Oliver Queen: Orion is Darkseid's son.
Kara: Yes. He was raised by some who believes in spreading the light instead of the darkness his birth-father created. And eventually he swore to serve that light instead.


"Supergirl: The Darkest Place (#2.7)" (2016)
Winn Schott: You know, that a place that caters for aliens, they have some pretty good chicken wings.
Kara Danvers: How do you know that's chicken?

Kara Danvers: My cousin worked with a vigilante once. Tons of gadgets, lots of demons. Vigilantes are nuts.

Alex Danvers: So, where's Mon-El? I mean, doesn't he practically live in this place?
Kara Danvers: Oh, knowing him? He's probably at Dawn's apartment or Eve's apartment or with that blond Valeronian. What's the word for a male floozy?
Alex Danvers: A Daxamite.


"Supergirl: Changing (#2.6)" (2016)
Alex Danvers: I'm driving you home.
Kara Danvers: I'm not flying. That's for sure.

Alex Danvers: You've been weird ever since I told you.
Kara Danvers: I don't mean to be.
Alex Danvers: Kara, I know when you're sad, or when you're disappointed. I don't know what I would do if you were disappointed in me.
Kara Danvers: I would never be disappointed in you, but you said you didn't want to talk about it anymore.
Alex Danvers: Well, I do. If... if you're not okay with it...
Kara Danvers: I'm SO okay with it! Sit down. Alex, come and talk with me.
[Alex sits]
Kara Danvers: I think I owe you an apology.
Alex Danvers: For what?
Kara Danvers: For not creating an environment where you felt that you could talk about this with me. All those years we spent together growing up, the endless nights talking and sharing, now I realize that they were all about me and my secret. There's never been room for you, and that's my fault. And I'm so sorry.
Alex Danvers: You didn't do anything wrong.
Kara Danvers: And I know... I know that this is not the same at all, but I do know how it feels to keep a part of yourself shut off, to keep it inside. And I know how lonely that can make you feel. But Alex, you are not alone.
Alex Danvers: I can't do this without you.
Kara Danvers: You don't have to. So what about Maggie? What's she like?
Alex Danvers: I... I just like her so much. You know, she's smart and she's tough and she's just beautiful. She's so beautiful.
Kara Danvers: So are you.
[the Danvers sisters hug, Alex gets a message on her phone]
Alex Danvers: D.E.O.'s reporting an alien attacking civilians in an alleyway downtown.
Kara Danvers: I'll go get the alien. You get the girl.

Kara Danvers: [Alex wallows in her apartment] Alex, I can see you in there. Let me in, please.
Alex Danvers: Go away, Kara.
Kara Danvers: [flying in through the window] What's going on?
Alex Danvers: Nothing. Nothing is going on. You shouldn't have come over here.
Kara Danvers: Well, you didn't... you didn't show up for work, and that's not like you, so I got worried.
Alex Danvers: You're right. I should, uh... I should go in.
Kara Danvers: Wait, wait. Something is clearly wrong.
Alex Danvers: Everything is fine.
Kara Danvers: Is this about you coming out?
Alex Danvers: No. And just... forget I said anything about it, okay? Forget it.
Kara Danvers: Why? Wha... what does that mean?
Alex Danvers: It means that I made a mistake, okay? I was wrong, and I shouldn't have said anything. I should have just kept my mouth shut.
Kara Danvers: What happened?
Alex Danvers: [about Maggie] She doesn't like me, like that.
Kara Danvers: [hugging her as Alex breaks down crying] Come here.
Alex Danvers: I feel so humiliated.
Kara Danvers: No. No. I'm proud of you.


"Smallville: Fierce (#7.3)" (2007)
Kara: Is this really necessary?
Clark Kent: It's all about control, which you don't have.
Kara: Me? Get back to me when you can fly Earth boy.

Kara: Has anyone ever told you you're a little uptight? You definitely get that from your father.
Clark Kent: Listen, I've spent my entire life trying to hide my identity. I can't have you exposing us both in a single night. Watch and learn.

Kara: After a week of captivity on the farm with nothing but "Project Runway" and "Beauty and the Geek" for company, you finally take me out. To the Corn Festival.
Clark Kent: Harvest Festival. Smallville's big event. Just try to enjoy it.


"Supergirl: Human for a Day (#1.7)" (2015)
Cat Grant: You, Ker-rah? You never get sick. That's the best part about you.
Kara Danvers: That's the best part?
Cat Grant: If I get sick, I will under perform. If I under perform, our stock prices will fall, thousands of people will lose their job, the S&P will take a hit and you will personally have triggered the next recession. Do you want to be the next Lehman Brothers?
Kara Danvers: I guess I'll go home.
Cat Grant: Don't exhale on the way out.

James Olsen: You lost your powers. Solar flare.
Kara Danvers: I did not know we were calling it that.
James Olsen: He does. Well, he likes to name them. You know, heat vision, freeze breath...
Kara Danvers: He's such a nerd. I don't know, today, I'm less Girl of Steel and more Girl of Stucco.

Kara Danvers: [after an earthquake hits National City] Alex. Are you okay?
Alex Danvers: I'm fine.
Kara Danvers: Liar.
Alex Danvers: Back at you.
Kara Danvers: Arm's broken here. Which, by the way, a warning would have been nice about how much that hurts.


"Supergirl: How Does She Do It? (#1.5)" (2015)
Kara Danvers: Ms. Grant just won the Siegel Prize for Woman in Media.
Winn Schott: Oh, yes, she already knows. I didn't know she could smile if it wasn't based on cruelty to others.

Kara Danvers: I am not in the Friend Zone.
Alex Danvers: You've spent more time in the Friend Zone than the Phantom Zone.

Kara Danvers: Can you hack into hospital records?
Winn Schott: Easy-peasy, fresh and squeezy... It's not something a man would say.


"The New Batman Adventures: Girl's Night Out (#2.7)" (1998)
[Supergirl and Barbara are watching the news]
Reporter: Livewire, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn. So who was responsible for the collar?
Detective Harvey Bullock: Just a couple of rookies.
Barbara Gordon: Rookies?
Kara Kent: You bum!
Reporter: Impressive
Detective Harvey Bullock: Well, they show some potential.
Barbara Gordon, Kara Kent: Yes!
[They high five]

Kara Kent: [answering Clark's phone] Hello, Dullsville Central.
Batman: Is Clark Kent there?
Kara Kent: No, may I ask who's calling?
Batman: A friend. It's critical that he gets this message.
Kara Kent: Shoot.
Batman: Livewire has escaped in Gotham. If he wants to get *on top of the story*, he needs to get there, right away. Do you understand?
Kara Kent: Who is this? Sounds like a cape to me.
[Batman hangs up]


"Smallville: Traveler (#7.14)" (2008)
Clark Kent: Thanks for saving my life.
Kara: I didn't do it alone. I mean, if it wasn't for Chloe and Lana, Lex would've dissected my brain by now. I can't believe I trusted him.
Clark Kent: Don't be too hard on yourself. You're not the only one to be fooled by the Luthors. Lex and I used to be best friends. I thought Lionel was my ally.
Kara: But it doesn't make any sense. I mean, Lex tried to save me in Detroit, his father saved both of us in Washington.
Clark Kent: Lex and Lionel are only capable of doing the right thing if it benefits them. I want to see the good in people, Kara, but I think the Luthors are a lost cause.

Clark Kent: It's nice having you back.
Kara: Clark, how could I ever have forgotten you?


"Supergirl: Medusa (#2.8)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: What's this?
Mon-El: Oh, that? You asked for stuffing. So I ripped up my mattress and I pulled some out.
Kara Danvers: Oh, uh, well, not quite what I meant.

Kara Danvers: I knew it. I knew that was you. I knew that it was you and that weird space portal thing!
Barry Allen: Yeah. I'm sorry. It took a couple tries to get here. This is my friend Cisco.
Cisco Ramon: Well, friend is a loose term. We work together. Hi. Cisco. I have to say it, this is a nice universe you got here.
Kara Danvers: Thank you.
Barry Allen: Okay, do you remember last year, when I helped you out and you promised to do the same for me?
Kara Danvers: What are we up against?


"Smallville: Arctic (#7.20)" (2008)
Kara: I'd always thought the Traveler was meant for good. Even he thinks he is. When I went home to Krypton, I learned the truth about his fate. He won't save mankind. He'll destroy it.
Lex Luthor: Who is it?
Kara: Don't you already know?

Chloe Sullivan: [pulls kryptonite on Kara] Why isn't it working?
Kara: Check the expiration date?
Chloe Sullivan: Kara, there's something seriously wrong with you. It was the only way...
Kara: You lied to me. Clark's not here.
[Chloe tries to run out the door, Kara shuts it and transforms back into Brainiac]
Chloe Sullivan: Oh, God.
Brainiac: I'm impressed. I wouldn't have thought a member of your weak-willed species especially a friend of Kal-El's could ever use kryptonite against his cousin.
Chloe Sullivan: Let me go.
Brainiac: I remember you. Always sticking your pretty little head where it doesn't belong.
[Brainiac proceeds to pierce her head with his finger tendrils. Chloe unleashes her healing powers in defense, weakening him]
Brainiac: What the hell are you?


"Supergirl: Solitude (#1.15)" (2016)
Cat Grant: Tweedledee. Staff meeting. Everyone in my office. Stat with a side of ASAP!
Siobhan Smythe: That makes you Tweedledum.
Kara Danvers: I could throw her into space. I dream about doing that.

Indigo: Supergirl. What exactly makes you so super?
Kara Danvers: That symbol. I've seen it before.
Indigo: The font of omniscient knowledge. I know everything about you.
Winn Schott: What are you, some kind of living Internet?
Indigo: You might call me that.


"Smallville: Apocalypse (#7.18)" (2008)
Clark Kent: Kara, listen to me.
Kara: How do you know that name?
Clark Kent: Because I'm from Krypton. I'm your cousin. I'm Kal-El.
Kara: I was sent here to kill you.

Lex Luthor: You disappoint me, Kara. With everything my family's done for you, to question my judgment.
Kara: It's only because I care about you.
Lex Luthor: Since the day my father found your ship submerged in the Reeve's Dam, he loved you like you were his own daughter. He died guarding your secret from the world.
Kara: I know, and I owe my life to the both of you, but this country...
Lex Luthor: What do you know about protecting this country? You are an alien. I'm the President of the United States. By striking the enemy first, I am ensuring our survival. We will prevail. And through it all, I expect you to... look at me! I expect you to stand by my side.
Kara: Of course, Mr. President.


"Smallville: Veritas (#7.15)" (2008)
[Kara tries to give Clark a boost so he can fly]
Clark Kent: Not helping.
Kara: I'm sorry, Yeah, I know. It... but it's just really easy. Up, up and away.

Clark Kent: What did you do to Lana?
Brainiac: A little adjustment to her central nervous system. Absolutely irreversible by any human standards. Completely reversible by me.
Kara: Whatever you want me to do, just don't let Lana suffer.
Brainiac: I'm afraid that she is suffering. There's part of Lana that is completely aware of what's happening around her, but she has no control of her body. Her motor skills, her speech, every breath she takes is controlled by me.
Clark Kent: Leave Lana out of this.
Brainiac: Did I mention that Lana is in excruciating pain? She just can't express it.


"Superman: Little Girl Lost: Part II (#2.28)" (1998)
[Kara exits the Boom Tube onto Apokolips]
Kara: What a toilet!
[sees a colossal statute of Darkseid]
Kara: Wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley.

[as the comet fragment heads toward Metropolis]
Kara: Well, girl, you always wanted to save the world...
[hurtles toward it]


"Supergirl: Manhunter (#1.17)" (2016)
Jeremiah Danvers: Listen... doing what you do makes you special. But it's not safe. Those kids, their parents, they're all wondering how a little girl pulled off that rescue today. We told them that you got lucky, but that excuse will work once.
Young Kara Zor-El: I'm sorry.
Jeremiah Danvers: I know you were only trying to help. But the world already has a Superman. All you need to be is Kara Danvers.


"Supergirl: Strange Visitor from Another Planet (#1.11)" (2016)
Adam Foster: I'm confused. Is it "Kira" or "Kara"?
Kara Danvers: "Kira" to your mom, "Kara" to literally everyone else on the planet, and beyond.


"Supergirl: Livewire (#1.4)" (2015)
Alex Danvers: Where are you?
Kara Danvers: I'm a little busy.
Alex Danvers: You said you would be here.
Kara Danvers: And I will be. I'm just dealing with an escaped alien prisoner.


"Supergirl: Survivors (#2.4)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: Hey, chief, I got something for you. Remember the NCPD alien murder?
Snapper Carr: Two-line police blotter item does not constitute a story.
Kara Danvers: It does when it's connected to an underground fight club.
Snapper Carr: [his interest piqued] My silence is your invitation. Talk fast.


"Smallville: Covenant (#3.22)" (2004)
[Kara and Clark are flying/drifting in the sky]
Clark Kent: How are you doing this?
Kara: You're doing it, too.
Clark Kent: I can't fly...
Kara: Not yet. This is just the beginning, Kal-El. You have no idea how powerful you'll become.


"Supergirl: Bizarro (#1.12)" (2016)
Cat Grant: You two haven't had your first kiss yet? Kara, you are like a character from a Jane Austen novel. Bizarro.
Kara Danvers: It's not that weird. We've only been out for a couple times.
Cat Grant: No. I named her Bizarro. I named Supergirl, why not her evil twin.


"Supergirl: Childish Things (#1.10)" (2016)
Kara Danvers: The day your father killed those six people was like for me the day my planet exploded


"Supergirl: Red Faced (#1.6)" (2015)
Kara Danvers: Would you like me to call your mother a car?
Cat Grant: She can take her broom.


"Supergirl: Better Angels (#1.20)" (2016)
Cat Grant: This is your "Working Girl" moment.
Kara Danvers: Miss Grant, the end of "Working Girl" always makes me cry.
Cat Grant: Me too.


"Supergirl: Hostile Takeover (#1.8)" (2015)
Astra: I'm glad you're here.
Kara Danvers: I'm glad you're back in a cell.


"Smallville: Fracture (#7.12)" (2008)
Kara: [speaking to Lois] Can you get me out of here?
Lois Lane: Does MacGyver blush every time he walks past me? I'll get something to jimmy the lock.


"Supergirl: The Last Children of Krypton (#2.2)" (2016)
Snapper Carr: I don't like you, and I never will, ponytail.
Kara Danvers: I don't need you to like me, jerk guy.
Snapper Carr: You're as bad at insults as you are at reporting.
