Batman and the Outsiders #5: Page 8

Back in Gotham, as fires rage unchecked through the city...And you know they've been there a while (still no Terra - she's dead I say, drowned!). The coffee's had time to become cold. Or did coffee makers in a billionaire's household not have heating plates back in 1983? Or is it all Katana's coffee from that morning, left undrunk by Halo cuz she doesn't know what that black stuff is supposed to be? But who needs a working coffee maker when you can use lasers, am I right?
Two things here (and still no Terra). First, Cyborg is heating up the pot, but Katana has a full tray of cups. So he's gonna have himself a mug of that delicious re-heated coffee, but everyone else gets cold cups that were sitting on the counter since that morning? Second, have a taste of that Mike Barr patter. I bet Katana says that a lot. "That'll be 5.99$." "BUT I AM A SAMURAI!"
(Still no Terra.) Our attention shifts to Metamorpho who is being shoved "down there". That's just a natural reaction to hanging with Starfire, dude.

Ah no, it IS Terra. She made it out after all. Against all hope (and physics).
Is that really an expression? I've heard of "Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?", but eat? A piehole's a piehole's a piehole. Not that "Freako" is much of a cuss word. Terra is in a hurry to get to the only member of either team to be sitting down - Geo-Force of course!
Sure, he's got a reason to be tired, he just lifted all their asses out of the river, but when you really think about it, they almost just all drowned. That would take the stuffing out of me. Just a little bit. And what about poor Terra, roped into becoming a waitress and using her gravity powers to keep everything on the tray despite that Freako ('scuse my French) Metamorpho almost tipping it over. Which only leads me to believe Batman is being sarcastic here.
Stutter away, Brion. Batman: He will kill you with kindness. Literally.
I don't know about elation, but what's Terra talking about? She's in the team that redefined angst for the DC Universe. Robin's being particularly pissy and she's plotting to kill the Titans. Batman gives a word of encouragement and HE'S grim?

Tomorrow: I take a break, because there's no way I'm ruining my Saturday for the Outsiders.
Sunday: The horror that is... HALO'S ROOM!!!!

Metamprpho clearly recently tried "Do you kiss your mother with that mouth" on Batman, with predictable results, and is trying to change up his routine as a consequence....
