Labs, then pick up some ice on your way.

You better be there.
You know how hard it was for me to find a banquet hall that's insured for meta-humans? Okay! Okay! Just ice? I can pick up a few pizzas if you want.
Pizzas? It's a Christmas party, not a prison rodeo.
You know what? I'll get the ice.
You won't get the right kind.
Of ice? (MUSIC PLAYING) Gambo croquettes with saffron aioli.

And who cares? Pumpkin carrot soup shooters.
Wait! I almost forgot the bat signal croutons.
Come one, Green Arrow, get with it! Oh Why? GA has this whole imaginary bromance thing with Batman.
He wants to be friends outside work and he thinks the Christmas party is his way in.
Yeah, not that Batman cares.
He spends every Christmas Grinching it up in his cave while GA toasts bat signal croutons and saves him a seat.
Well, this is just about the easiest Christmas present I can think of.
Oh, no.
Oh, hi, Batman.
I didn't think you were coming.

Labs! I did! I tried.
But But what? What? (GRUNTS) They were in the middle of their Christmas party, and I didn't want to make a scene, so I figured we could keep him for a few hours.

A.
R.
Labs scheduled their party the same night as mine? Oh, okay.
All right, all right.
Oh, yeah, and it's amazing! Whoo, they have a peppermint chocolate fountain and Santa's there.
Though it might just be the Professor Hamilton guy.
Twinsies! Hey, big fella, that's not cheese.
Let's save some for everyone, okay? (GRUNTS) Oh, I was looking forward to Martian Manhunter's banana cream pie.
