Cat Grant: Lois, Clark's nice and all, if you wanna invest in a fixer-upper, but he's no Blur.
Lois Lane: [pleased] No. No, he's not.
Lois Lane: [to Clark] Booster Gold's star will burn off faster than you can say "up, up, and away."
Clark Kent: [to Booster Gold] The suit doesn't make the hero. A hero's made in the moment by the choices that he makes and the reasons that he makes them. A hero brings out the best in people. I don't doubt behind that star, there is a hero... but I haven't seen him. Not yet.
Booster Gold: Well, you know what? I've got some advice for you too.
Clark Kent: What's that?
Booster Gold: "The Blur." No. No, no, no. It sounds like a roller coaster or something. You need something strong. You need something simple. Something that actually starts with that "S" you wear. Something... super. You got to brand it, baby. You know?
Clark Kent: I'll start brainstorming.
Ted Kord: This boy is absolutely unique. He managed to shutdown the scarab.
Lois Lane: I'm guessing not everyone has what it takes to do that. So, Mr. Kord, does this mean that you'll be able to remove it from him?
Jaime Reyes: I- No. I mean, will that take away the power it gives me?
Ted Kord: Yes, but...
Jaime Reyes: I want to learn how to use them. I want to be a hero like Booster Gold.
Booster Gold: I don't know, kid. You know... what do you say we give Miss Lane here an exclusive on the *real* hero of the day?
Clark Kent: The suit doesn't make the hero. A hero's made in the moment by the choices that he makes and the reasons that he makes them. A hero brings out the best in people.
Clark Kent: You helped Jaime break free of that scarab.
Booster Gold: I was using your words.
Clark Kent: It doesn't matter. The fact is, in the moment you believed them. And so did he.
Jaime Reyes: You can help me. You're a hero.
Booster Gold: No, I'm not. Not like you think, kid. But, listen, you can be. Someone once told me that the suit doesn't make the hero, so you fight it.
Jaime Reyes: I can't.
Booster Gold: Yes, you can. Fight it. You can be a hero. You just have to have faith in what you are and what you're gonna be. It's your choice, kid. You choose.
Clark Kent: Lois, I was like that in Smallville. The thought of going back to that, I...
Lois Lane: Clark, the real you can burn holes through buildings with a look, and lift a freight train with one finger. Get over it.
Clark Kent: You know, the last thing you should worry about is teaching me Mild-Mannered 101. You should be focusing on that promotion now that Steve Lombard went to Daily Star. They said that desk could be yours.
Lois Lane: I'm counting on it.
Jaime Reyes: Who are you?
Booster Gold: [to a crowd of people] I'm sure you're all wondering who I am. Well, how about the 411? I'm pure gold, ladies and gentlemen. I am Booster Gold, the greatest hero you've never heard of... till now!
Booster Gold: If you need a hero, ping me.
[walks up to Clark]
Booster Gold: Nice glasses.
[turns back to the crowd]
Booster Gold: Remember... it's Booster Gold!
Skeets: May I offer a piece of advice from your former career, sir?
Booster Gold: Football?
Skeets: Go big or go home.
Booster Gold: [to Blue Beetle] One move, bug, I'll zap you to honeybee heaven.
Skeets: Will you be thanking anyone, sir?
Booster Gold: Me. And maybe my mom. People love that sentimental stuff. Scores pretty big with the ladies, too.
Booster Gold: Who wants to be the star of the show?
[all the Booster Girls raise their hands]
Booster Gold: Just kidding, I'm the star of the show.
Clark Kent: Look, we need to get together and find Kord's missing weapon. It's dangerous.
Booster Gold: Danger... is my middle name. So is fame, fortune, and front page, Clark.
Lois Lane: [about Booster Gold] What an ass.
Cat Grant: You mean asset.
Lois Lane: What?
Cat Grant: You wanted me to believe in heroes, Lois. Well, I think I finally might. He isn't hiding anything. You can see his face. His name...
Lois Lane: Is Booster Gold.
Cat Grant: Booster Gold could be the city's answer to inspiration, and my answer to that promotion.
Lois Lane: You're up for my promotion?
Cat Grant: Isn't yours just yet. And thats to my reporting on the VRA, I've gathered myself a small but vocal fan base. You should read their tweets. They love me. Enough to convince the powers-that-be to put my hat in the ring for that desk upstairs. May the best reporter win.
Lois Lane: Cat Grant, like nails on a chalkboard.
