Adam: (on Batman's conflicting nature with Catwoman) He had these curious stirrings in his utility belt, and yet he knew she had to be put away in the slammer.
Adam: (on developing his character of Batman) I was at war with the producers at the beginning because of that. They wanted it to be stiff and at one level. I wouldn't do it. So the letters and memos flew back and forth, but after a week or so, a wonderful thing happened, they trusted me. They said, 'Let him go, let him do what he's doing'.
Adam: (on meeting Pope Paul VI) It was really a humorous moment, because I was too hung over to kiss his ring. I was afraid to bend over. He told me how much he enjoyed the show. I think he probably had a lot of advisers, because I can't see the pope sitting around watching Batman. Or Family Guy. But who knows?
Adam West: The military exists to win the nation's wars ... not to accommodate the personal habits of its soldiers.
Adam: (On being typecast as Batman) It was inescapable. I'd just about land something substantial, something I like or a good career move. Then some dinosaur would rear up and say, "But the audience will think of him as Batman". It was formidable. It was there like a brick wall.
