"When I think of H.R., I'm reminded of a story that John Lennon once told. When Lennon was five years old, his teacher asked him to write down what he wanted to be when he grew up. Lennon wrote 'Happy'. His teacher said that he didn't understand the assignment, and Lennon said that they didn't understand life. H.R. understood life. He wasn't a genius, and he didn't have super speed, but when we needed him most, he was our hero. He was my hero."
– Iris West, The Flash: "Finish Line"
