Mongul: You know for a moment there, I almost believed you were going to kill me. How stupid of you to hesitate like that. Not a mistake I'll make, I can assure you.
[it's Superman's birthday; Batman shows Wonder Woman his gift - it's just an envelope]
Wonder Woman: Bruce, you didn't get him a gift certificate, did you?
[Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman look at Mongul, imprisoned by the Black Mercy]
Wonder Woman: I wonder what he's seeing?
Batman: [with feeling] Whatever it is, it's too good for him.
Mongul: I'd advise you to try the plasma disruptor. It's more of a woman's weapon.
Young Bruce Wayne: Beware my terrible sword! Ha-ha! Let all evildoers beware my...
[Joe Chill comes out of the shadows, brandishing a gun]
Joe Chill: We'll start with the pretty pearls around the lady's neck. Now.

Kal-El: Somebody wants to see the Macroscope.
Jor-El: Go on up with your father, Van.
Jonathan Kent: [Jor-El's voice changes to Jonathan Kent's] I'll be along in a few minutes.

Jor-El: Do I have to remind you on a certain prediction of my own? Made, I'm embarrassed to say, when you were only a few days old? I announced to the world that Krypton was going to explode. And it took me years to salvage my reputation.
Kal-El: But maybe you were right. Maybe...
[Notices Van-El listening in on the conversation]
Kal-El: ...Maybe I've just been working too hard.
Jor-El: The past is dead. Focus on the future.
Superman: Do you have any idea what you did to me?
[continues to fight Mongul. Mongul counter-attacks]
Mongul: I fashioned a prison that you couldn't leave without sacrificing your heart's desire. It must have been like tearing off your own arm.
Mongul: You should have stayed in whatever happy fantasy the Black Mercy granted you!
[they fight, Mongul hits Superman through the floor. They land at the base of Statues of Jor-El and Lara]
Superman: HAPPY? Do you know what I've LOST? What I've...
