Gramps- "He's such a good boy. If only he didn't have this... this fixation."
Grams- "Wally can't help it, Honey. He's been through so much, what with his father taking off ‘for he was born and poor Melba dying in childbirth... He's never been in control of his life. It's natural he'd try and "Take control" by believing he's... Well... You know."

Fred- "And why are you "Kinda moody"?"
18.7.8-18.7.9 - Fred walks over to the window and looks out.
Wally- "Well, being one God and everything ...I'm not just an independent entity. I'm sort of a combo of all different Gods, melded by the collective consciousness of humanity. That's not uncommon, you know. Combined beings. Maybe you've met one?"

Supergirl #19 -MIDDLE-AGED CRISIS
David, Kirk, Smith, Hazlewood

Mr. Danvers- "Sorry. I'm new to this "secret identity" thing."
Supergirl- "I know, but that's okay. I've made arrangements. You'll understand later."
Mr. Danvers- "Oh. Okay. Sounds Mysterious."
Suddenly a bunch of kids gather for autographs.
19.3.2 - Mr. Danvers- "Guess you like to move in mysterious ways. Like Wally."
19.3.3 - Mr. Danvers- "Weird little kid with glasses and a bat. Thinks he's God. Met him at the hospital. Poor kids grandmother just passed away."
19.3.4 - ‘Waaaaiit a minute.' Supergirl thinks as everything comes into perspective.
19.6.1 - Gramps and Wally stand in winter clothes in the snow covered land scape of the cemetery. Gramps- "She was something when she was young, Wally. She was a flapper, y'know."
Wally- "I know, gramps."
Gramps- "She could cut up the dance floor. She was a pistol, she was."
19.6.2 - Gramps- "she was something else." Gramps begins to dance with his soul-mate who is dressed in a pink flapper outfit.
19.6.3 - Wally- "I'll be back in a few minutes, Gramps."
Gramps dancing in cadence, "that's fine, Wally."
19.6.4 - Wall walks off with his bat over his shoulder.
19.6.5 - Wally leans up against a tree and says, "You can come out now."
19.6.6 - He knocks once on the tree and a hand brings the trunk apart. (RE: Pre-Crisis Kara)
19.6.7 - Supergirl emergences. Wally- "Impressive. Make it yourself?"
Supergirl- "Some unsavory types I used to know built it as a hiding place."
19.7.1 - Supergirl- "Thought I'd hide here during the funeral. Now that it's over, well..."
Wally- "Save the condolences. I'm fine. Say what you wish."
Supergirl- "Okay. So, uhm ...you're god."
19.7.2 - Wally- "Yup."
Supergirl- "A God named "Wally."
Wally- "Variant on "Yahweh." So... what can I tell you?"
19.7.3 - Supergirl- "You can tell me why you're always hanging around the outskirts of my life. You can tell me why I should believe you."
19.7.4 - Supergirl bends down to Wally's level and continues, "You say you're God. Prove it."
19.7.5 - Wally bawls out laughing, "P-P-Prove it?! Bwaahhahah!!! And how would you suggest I do that?!?"
Supergirl- "A miracle is the traditional method."
Wally- "We live in a miraculous world, my dear. How would I stand out? Transmute elements? Metamorpho does that. Change form? Martian Manhunter. Control Weather? Weather Wizard. Telepathy? Aquaman. Change the course of mighty river? Bend steel in my bare hands?"
19.8.1 - Supergirl- "Okay. Okay. So I just have to believe in you, then."
19.8.2 - Wally places his hand on Supergirl's shoulder, "You don't "have" to do anything. That's called "free will."
19.8.3 - Wally turns and walks away. Supergirl- "But if I do believe. Then it's on no evidence."
Wally- "And that's called "Faith." Humans do it all the time."
19.8.4 - Supergirl floats beside Wally, "Can I ask you some more questions?"
Wally- "You haven't asked any yet. Just made skeptical comments. You may ask me three questions."
19.8.5 - Supergirl- "Only three?"
Wally- "Yes. Two left."
19.8.6 - Supergirl- "That counted? Are you kidding?"
Wally- "Yes. No. That's three ‘bye."

19.9.1 - Wally finds a patch of grass that is still growing and picks a three leaf clover, "Okay, okay. Three more just don't ask why I need a starship. I'm sick of that joke." (RE: Star Trek V)
19.9.2 - Supergirl- "Well, if you're God, why do you have a grandfather and family history?"
19.9.3 - Wally plucks a leaf from the clover, "I created them. A child alone attracts attention. I try to keep a low profile so as not to upset the "God is dead" people. Next."
19.9.4 - Supergirl- "Why here in Leesburg, of all places?"
Wally plucking another leaf, "It's not just here. I'm everywhere. You know like Elvis. Last?"
19.9.5 - Supergirl- "What am I?"
19.9.6 - Wally- "You're an earthborn angel. Go to the library, read "ANGELS ON EARTH" by Professor R.K. Simpson. Gotta Go."
19.9.7 - Supergirl- "Of course. Don't want to leave your fictional grandfather alone too long."
Wally turns to answer, "Oh, I'm not worried. Right now, he's in a world of his own."
19.9.8 - The band is playing and Gramps is dancing with his soul-mate on the dance floor.
