Bruce: No I’m not.
Leo: So what’s the problem?
Bruce: It’s just that since I lost my trust for Julie, it’s been hard trying to get it back.
Leo: Maybe I can talk to her and see if I can put down these battlefields.

Bruce: Wait a minute, that coach Julie saw at that modeling company and that girl who dated Jason each had a ability.

Comm. Woods: I don’t want Gotham to be a quarantine city because of this chemical.
Lucius (phone): There’s nothing in my power to reverse this; all I want is to find the cause of the chemical explosion.
Comm. Woods: I’m starting to think that it was just the weather.
Lucius (phone): I have a feeling that someone done it more than a mere lighting strike.
Comm. Woods: We will find the cause, in the meantime you said a Leo Foster had a folder that might contained the information we need.
