Kid Flash: You here to save us or fry us?
Superboy: Huh, I don't seem to have heat vision, so I suppose helping is my only option.
[Superboy frees Robin]
Robin: Finally! Luckily Batman isn't here. He'd have my head for taking so long.
Kid Flash: Seriously, that's what you're worried about? The whole League will have our heads after tonight.
Mark Desmond: You'll never get out of here! I'll have you back in pods before morning.
Robin: That guy is not whelmed. Not whelmed at all.
Kid Flash: What is with you and this whelmed thing?
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.
Batman: [Looking at Superboy] Is that what I think it is?
Kid Flash: He doesn't like being called an "it."
Superboy: I'm Superman's clone!
Batman: ...Start talking.
Kid Flash: [to Superboy] What? What do you want? Quit staring. You're creeping me out.
Robin: Uh, KF, how about we not tick off the guy who can fry us with a look?
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: [after Kid Flash runs into a barrier] We're cut off from the street.
Kid Flash: Thanks. My head hadn't noticed.
The Flash: The League will still handle the obvious stuff. There's a reason we have these big targets on our chest.
Aquaman: But CADMUS proves the bad guys are getting smarter. Batman needs a team that can operate on the sly.
Batman: The five of you will be that team.
Robin: Cool! Wait. Five?
Batman: [Ms Martian enters] This is the Martian Manhunter's niece. Ms. Martian.
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?"
Superboy: I'm falling. Superman can fly. Why can't I fly?
Kid Flash: Don't know, but it does look like you can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Still cool.
Dubbilex: Perhaps for the sake of all genomorphs, our brother Superboy should make up his own mind.
Superboy: It was you.
Dubbilex: Yes, brother. I set the fire and lured your new friends down into Cadmus, woke them when they were in danger...
Superboy: And guided me. Why?
Dubbilex: Because you are our hope, the genomorph hero. You will blaze a trail for all our brothers, showing us the way to freedom. What is your choice, brother?
Superboy: I... choose... freedom.
Aqualad: [as Superboy is fighting] Superboy. The goal is escape. Not to bury ourselves here.
Superboy: YOU WANT ESCAPE?
Guardian: We'll cut them off at sub-level one.
Mark Desmond: We'd better or the board will have our heads - *my* head. I need to get something from Project Blockbuster just in case. I'll meet you at sub-level one.
