Barry Allen: What are your superpowers again?

Bruce Wayne: I'm rich.

Bruce Wayne: There is a... stranger. He comes to this village from the sea. He comes in the winter when people are hungry and brings fish. Comes out of the King tide. That was last night.

[Arthur Curry turns around]

Arthur Curry: Talk.

Superman: Do you bleed?

[throws Batman into a wall]

Steppenwolf: No protectors here. No Lanterns. No Kryptonian. This world will fall, like all the others.

Bruce Wayne: I'm putting together a team of people with special abilities. See, I believe enemies are coming...

Barry Allen: Stop right there. I'm in.

Bruce Wayne: You are?

Barry Allen: Yeah, I... I need... friends. People are difficult, they require a lot of focus. They, uh... they have a rhythm that I haven't quite been able to - like brunch! What is brunch? You wait in line for an hour for, essentially, lunch. I mean... I don't know. People are... a little slow.

Bruce Wayne: [smiles] I'll try to keep up.

Barry Allen: [holds up batarang] Can I keep this?

Arthur Curry: You tell anyone about this, I will bring every piranha I know after you!

Bruce Wayne: [sees the Flash suit] Silica-based quartz sand fabric. Abrasion resistant. Heat resistant.

Barry Allen: Uh... yeah, I do... competitive ice dancing.

Bruce Wayne: It's what they use on the space shuttle to prevent it from burning up on re-entry.

Barry Allen: I do... very competitive ice dancing.

Alfred Pennyworth: [to Bruce] I miss the days whens one's biggest concern is exploding wind-up penguins.

Diana Prince: People said the Age of Heroes would never come again.

Bruce Wayne: It has to. We don't have any more time!

[the Kent farm was repossessed, but Clark gets it back]

Clark Kent: How did you get the house from the bank?

Bruce Wayne: I bought the bank. All of it.

Bruce Wayne: [in the Flash's room] Barry Allen! Bruce Wayne.

Barry Allen: You said that like it explains why there's a total stranger sitting in the dark in my second favorite chair.

Aquaman: You really are out of your mind.

Batman: I'm not the one who brought a pitchfork.

Bruce Wayne: I believe that an enemy is coming from far away. I'm looking for warriors, this stranger. Others like him. I'm building an alliance to defend us. It's very important that I see this man.

Bruce Wayne: The world needs Superman... the team needs Clark. He's more human I am. He lived in this world, fell in love, had a job. In spite of all that power.

[from trailer]

Barry Allen: [from trailer] Look man, I don't know who you are, but whoever you're looking for...

Bruce Wayne: [throws a batarang at Barry, who steps back with super-human speed] So you're fast.

Barry Allen: That feels like an oversimplification

Commissioner Gordon: How many of you are there?

Batman: Not enough.

Commissioner Gordon: Do you really think that...?

[Gordon turns to see that Batman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman are gone]

The Flash: Oh, wow. They just... They really just vanished, huh? Oh, that's rude.

[the Flash runs off]

Diana Prince: You should move on from mourning for your parents.

Bruce Wayne: [mean] You're one to talk, you ran away for hundred years because your boyfriend died!

Bruce Wayne: [from trailer] Arthur Curry. I hear you can talk to fish.

Bruce Wayne: Superman was a beacon to the world. He didn't just save people, he made them see the best parts of themselves.

The Flash: It's really cool you guys seem ready to do battle and stuff, but I've never done battle. I've just pushed some people and run away!

Batman: Save one.

The Flash: What?

Batman: Save one person.

The Flash: And then?

Batman: Then you'll know.

Commissioner Gordon: [to Batman] Good to see you playing with others again.

Aquaman: [approaches and sizes Batman up] Dressed like a bat. I dig it.

Batman: [to Gordon] It may be temporary...

Barry Allen: I eat a lot of snacks to fill this black hole. I'm a snack hole!

Cyborg: Boo-ya.

Arthur Curry: A strong man is strongest alone, ever heard that?

Bruce Wayne: That's not the saying, that's like the opposite of what the saying is.

Kal-El: You did this!

Batman: I had to.

Kal-El: You won't let me live, you won't let me die.

Batman: The world needs you.

Kal-El: But it doesn't need you.

[after been beaten by Superman and is thrown to the ground]

Batman: I think something is definitely bleeding.

Superman: [to Flash] Slowpoke!

Victor Stone: [saves Aquaman] Ride ain't over yet!

Arthur Curry: My man!

Cyborg: [controls the Batmobile] Relax, Alfred. I'll take it from here.

Alfred Pennyworth: Uh, do... do I know you?

Bruce Wayne: We have to be ready. You, me, the others... there's an attack coming from far away.

Diana Prince: Not coming, Bruce. It's already here. The others... where are they?

Diana Prince: You were pushing me to lead the team, but leaders get people killed. I fought, always, when I was needed. But to lead, step into the light and to say to people, "This is worth your life"... it's your fault. They're all Steve Trevor.

Silas Stone: I would rather die than tell you anything.

Steppenwolf: Finally, someone who doesn't complain!

German Archaeologist: What did you do this weekend, Diana?

Diana Prince: Me? Nothing very interesting.

[Arthur Curry rescues a man from drowning]

Arthur Curry: [takes a bottle of whisky] It's on him!

[seeing Superman alive again]

The Flash: Pet Cemetery!

Black Clad Alpha: I don't believe it. What are you?

Wonder Woman: A believer.

Superman: I'm glad I'm alive to see this!

Wonder Woman: Me too.

Batman: Oh, now you're glad.

Lois Lane: There are heroes among us. Not to make us feel smaller, but to remind us of what makes us great.

Mera: Your mother would have gone to the surface world to stop that thing. But she's not here, so it has to be you.

Bruce Wayne: The motherbox was designed to reshape a planet. But what if you were stronger than a planet? If your cells were lying dormant, but incapable of decay? A boost from the motherbox...

Barry Allen: ...could bring him back to life.

Bruce Wayne: [to Wonder Woman] Superman was a beacon to the world... Why aren't you? You're an inspiration, Diana. You don't just save people; you make them see their better selves. And yet, I'd never even heard of you until Luthor lured you out by stealing a picture of your dead boyfriend. You shut yourself down for a century, so let's not talk about me moving on!

Lois Lane: I wish you could stay a little longer.

Clark Kent: Why?

Lois Lane: Because now I have to send you away.

Clark Kent: Bruce.

Lois Lane: He needs you.

Clark Kent: I guess I owe him one.

Lex Luthor: I was just celebrating the return of God. He burst out of the ground!

Superman: Well I believe in truth... but I'm also a big fan of justice.

Queen Hippolyta: Listen to me, Diana.

[fires a flaming arrow]

Lois Lane: This is what we know: The world has grown dark, and while we have reasons to fear we have the strength not to. There are heroes among us, to remind us that only from fear, comes courage. That only from the darkness, can we truly feel the light.

Menalippe: The arrow hasn't been shot in five thousand years. Men won't know what it means.

Queen Hippolyta: Men won't. She will.

Barry Allen: [after Cyborg briefly leaves during the first battle against Steppenwolf] Did he just bail on us?

Bruce Wayne: I had a dream. It was the end of the world.

Superman: [while choking Batman] Tell me, do you bleed?

Black Clad Alpha: This is man's best hope. Down with the modern world, back to the dark ages and the safety of holy fear.

Bruce Wayne: Did Steve Trevor tell you that?

Diana Prince: They're children!

Black Clad Alpha: And they always will be.

Diana Prince: You have to learn to move on.

Aquaman: Honestly... I think we're gonna be dead way before that. And you know what? I don't mind. It's an honorable end. But we've gotta shut Steppenwolf down. Superman's a no-show. You've got no powers, no offense. This guy might be working for the enemy. We don't now. You're tripping over your feet, and mine... whuf, you're gorgeous, and fierce... and strong. I know we went to war with the Amazons, but that was before my time. You know what? I don't wanna die. I'm young. There's shit that I wanna do. I just feel like... I didn't really embrace the sea or the land. I've been a loner my whole life. But being part of something bigger, like this... maybe I'm scared because... I'm meant to...

Bruce Wayne: [Smiles, gestures to Aquaman who pulls Diana's lasso out from under his butt and tosses it back to her]

Diana Prince: I think that was beautiful.

Aquaman: [to Barry] You say a word about this, you'll meet every piranha I know.

Cyborg: [attempting to separate the three Motherboxes] Superman, we gotta pull these things apart. A couple more seconds, you'll see your opening.

Superman: Any blowback?

Cyborg: Big time. But I think we can take it.

Superman: Good... 'cause I really like being alive.

Cyborg: So do I.

[Both separate the Motherboxes, resulting in a huge explosion, knocking them both back]

Batman: Clark...

Superman: [groaning] I take it back - I wanna die.

Cyborg: [both laughing in pain] Man, my TOES hurt! I don't even understand the physics of how my toes hurt!

Wonder Woman: Children. I work with children.

Bruce Wayne: But this is science beyond our limits. And that's what science is for. To do what's never been done. To make life better.

Wonder Woman: Or to end it. Technology is like any other power. Without reason, without heart, it destroys us.

Batman: [Parademon about to attack him] Son of a bitch!

Wonder Woman: AHH

[knocks parademon from batmobile]

The Flash: [running by] Oh snap!

Cyborg: [finishes several parademons] You're welcome!

Aquaman: [Jumps onto batmobile fender] YEAH!

Batman: This isn't the plan.

Alfred Pennyworth: No, Master Wayne! This is the team!

Cyborg: Hey, Blame the lady. We would've left you but she didn't ask for a vote.

Steppenwolf: For Darkseid!

Barry Allen: [scarfing a whole pizza on the way to Bruce's car] It's like this layer of dimensional reality that seems to manipulate space-time. I call it the Speed Force. It causes me to burn a tremendous amount of calories, so I am just a black hole of snacks. I am a snack hole.

Superman: So, how do I help?

Batman: [regarding Cyborg] We buy him some, he can stop that box from destroying all life on Earth... we hope.

Superman: Well, I know you didn't bring me back 'cause you like me.

Batman: I don't... *not*...

Philippus: Steppenwolf...

Steppenwolf: [approaching the Mother Box] Mother... millennia in exile, searching, at last you call me home.

Queen Hippolyta: You will *not* like your welcome!

Steppenwolf: Oh, I think I will.

[He slams the haft of his ax into the ground, summoning a horde of Parademons]

[first lines]

Podcast Kid 2: [camera phone POV of Superman with police, firefighters and paramedics after a heroic deed] There he is!

Podcast Kid 1: Shh! Shh! C'mon, let's go.

[to Superman]

Podcast Kid 1: Superman! Superman! Can we ask you some questions?

Podcast Kid 2: It's for our podcast.

Superman: Well, in that case...

Podcast Kid 1: How many people that you saved - have you saved?

Superman: I...

Podcast Kid 1: Never mind. Does your thing really stand for "hope"?

Superman: Yes, it does.

Podcast Kid 2: But it looks like an "S".

Superman: Yes, it's meant to. It's meant to wind... like a river. It comes and goes. My f -

[pause]

Superman: A man I knew used to say that hope was like your car keys: easy to lose, but if you dig around, it's usually close by.

Podcast Kid 2: Did you ev - ever fight a hippo?

Podcast Kid 1: [whispering to Podcast Kid 2, as Superman smiles] Shh! No, that's not it!

Podcast Kid 2: [whispering to Podcast Kid 1] But hippos are the most deadly!

Podcast Kid 1: [to Superman] Um... What is, uh... What's the best thing about Planet Earth?

[Superman ponders the question, then smiles as he's about to answer the question when the podcast abruptly ends]
