How Queer Everything Is Today! - S1-E10

Factual error: Kate fires a grappling hook into the back of the runaway train - it punctures the thin back door easily. She then fires another one backwards which hooks against one of the sleepers on the tracks. The slack gets taken up...and the train jolts to a dead stop as the hooks bite, (with everyone just wobbling on their feet somehow). No way on earth that's possible - the back door would have been torn off/open like a tin can and/or the sleeper would have been yanked out out of the ground, and the train would have ploughed into the station at full speed. Not to mention the fact that only after the train stops does the sleeper apparently give up the ghost and break. The magical supermetal of the train door is somehow still intact.

Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Two - S1-E9

Trivia: The version of Batman played by famous Bat-voice Kevin Conroy is a darker version of that from the graphic novel The Dark Knight Returns. The line "the world only makes sense when you force it to" is a version of a line from that comic (also used in Batman V Superman), also "Clark always said yes to anything with a badge or a flag." There are also elements from Batman Beyond, which first aired in 1999 (hence Earth-99), in which Conroy voiced an older Bruce Wayne mentoring a new Batman. The whole scene is full of nods to other versions - describing Kryptonite as "a little souvenir from the old hometown" is a Lex Luthor line from the original Superman movie, and him describing Superman as "strange visitor from another planet, with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men" comes from Superman serials from the 40s and 50s.
