  • Kara Danvers: What?
  • Mon-El: Bank robbers, zero. Supergirl, two. What do you even need cops for in this city?
  • Alex Danvers: He's from a different planet. He doesn't even know what he's saying.
  • Maggie Sawyer: No, he's right. Why bother trying to talk a guy down when Supergirl can just swoop in and force him down? Seventeen hours of "What do you want, how can I help you?", good old-fashioned hostage negotiation wasted.
  • Kara Danvers: You're not upset that I caught the bad guys and got everyone out safely, are you?
