J'onn J'onzz: You, me, Wonder Woman, Superman... all of us are orphans, exiles.
Hawkgirl: Maybe we should call ourselves the 'Just Us' League.
Superman: You don't know Darkseid like I do.
Batman: We know he used you. Humiliated you. Brainwashed you. Wound you up like a tin soldier and turned you loose against Earth. Cry me a river! On the outside chance that this isn't another one of his schemes, we have to take action. So I suggest you GET OVER IT!
Wonder Woman: [as Lightray slaps her then starts to fly off] Hey! Come back here!
Lightray: Only if you catch me!
Wonder Woman: He's worse than The Flash!
J'onn J'onzz: You miss your homeworld very much.
[Hawkgirl looks at him in surprise]
J'onn J'onzz: It doesn't take a telepath to see what's troubling you.
Batman: Apparently Darkseid and Highfather exchanged sons as part of some kind of peace-treaty.
[Wonder Woman stares]
Batman: Sounds wacky to me too.
Batman: [Forager reveals Orion is literally above him and points out a floating city which demands attention with how impressive it is] I'm gonna need a longer grapple.
Darkseid: Appraently he's harder to kill than you realized. You know his pattern, Kal-El. Once he's finished siphoning the memory banks, and technology of my planet...
Superman: He'll annihilate it... Good!
Wonder Woman: Superman.
J'onn J'onzz: You can't mean it!
Batman: [stumbles over to a stone ledge and sits down with his hand on his middle after going through the Boom Tube] *That* was fun.
Darkseid: Idiot. You're wasting your time.
Superman: I suppose you have a better idea.
Darkseid: You should know by now: I always have a plan.
General Steppenwolf: [as a hologram] Great Darkseid. The fleet ambushed us as soon as we hit the troposphere. Starkiller Four is gone, and we are in full retreat. They were waiting for us.
Desaad: [to Darkseid] You knew that going into that sector was a violation of our treaty with New Genesis.
Darkseid: It was a calculated risk. You have served me well, General. Take as many of them with you as you can.
[Steppenwolf stares for a second, then bows his head]
General Steppenwolf: As you command, my lord.
