- Red Hood: [footsteps: 2 instances] McGinnis! We need to talk about this!
- Batman: [groan, footsteps] There's nothing to talk about, Lian! I made my decision... and it's final!
- Red Hood: I don't like your decision so the [expletive] it's final!
- Batman: [groan] I don't care if you're schway with it or not! I am free to make my own choices.

- Red Hood: Yeah, and so is mine! That doesn't mean we open those things! It could be an alien menace or-
- Batman: Out of my way then. [rapid footsteps] If you guys cared half as much about saving lives as you did taking them- [hand smashing release switch, hand smashing release switch, whirring: 2 instances, pressurized hiss, pressurized hiss]
- Redbird: No way...
- Kamali: Is that-
- Batman: But it can't be... That's impossible.
