    • QUOTES (3)

      • Dick: What's a nice cow like you doing in a place like this?

      • Rip Snorting: We ain't got a chance against the Dynamic Duo. Leastwise without guns.
        Shame: Talkin' to you is like talkin' Pig Latin to a donkey.

      • Shame (as Batman and Robin are tied to stakes on the ground): I bet you'uns are probably wondering what all this is fer.
        Batman: That thought did cross my mind.
        Shame: Pretty soon, I'm gonna shoot this trusty six-shooter of mine and when I do, a herd of cattle's goin' come stompin' this way in a mighty big hurry.
        Robin: Holy stampede!
        Shame: Now those cows don't stop comin' for no man. Not even you, Bat-Fella. And when they get through stompin', there ain't gonna be enough of you left to put in a thimble!
        Batman: Shame on you, Shame!
        Shame: Watch yer tongue! Hasta la vista, pardners! I'll tell everybody you died with your bad boots on (Shame laughs as he shoots his gun and leaves as the cows start stampeding driven by the shots of the guns of Shame's henchmen).
        Narrator: Have Batman and Robin at last bitten the dust?? Is this the big casino?? Are The Dynamic Duo heading for the last roundup?? If you have the intestinal fortitude to learn the answers to these questions, tune in tomorrow!! Shame Time!! Shame Channel!!

    • NOTES (2)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Grimaldi Smith: I'm not quite sure but he left a platinum bullet.
        Referencing the radio and TV series, The Lone Ranger. A Texas Ranger named Reid is the last survivor of an ambush. His childhood friend Tonto finds him and nurses him back to health. Reid dons a mask and rides into the Old West, fighting evil and tyranny with his faithful sidekick at his side. The Lone Ranger uses silver bullets as his trademark, often leaving one behind before riding off. The conversation between Grimaldi and his Pitman echo the end conversations of many townspeople after they find one of the Lone Ranger's bullets.

      • Hot Rod Harry: It's "Desert Sands" by Lawrence and the Arabians.
        Referencing T.E. Lawrence, an Englishman who united the Arab tribes against the Turks during World War II. Lawrence's exploits were made into a movie in 1962, starring Peter O'Toole in the title role.

      • Batman: The best laid plans of mice and men oft gong agley.
        Referencing the poem "To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough" by Robert Burns, written in 1785. The original line is "The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men Gang aft agley," but "schemes" is often paraphrased as "plans."

      • Episode title:
        "Come Back, Shame" is based on the catch cry that Joey Starrett, portrayed by Brandon DeWilde, uttered at the end of the 1953 Paramount Western Shane, which starred Alan Ladd in the title role.
