      King Tut: Batman's head, unless I miss my guess.

    • Suzie Knickerbocker: Batman, I think that's a darling little costume you're wearing. Where did you get it, in London or Rome?
      Batman: No, I believe in patronizing local craftsmen.
      Robin: There's a guy who makes great capes and cowls. Right here in Gotham City.

    • Narrator: It appears to be a death worse than fate! Batman has been in sticky situations before, but never like this!! And what of Robin who's fit to be tied?? Is this Batman's Waterloo?? Tune in tomorrow, Same Bat-Time, Sam Bat-Channel... At your own risk.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Tut: Friends, Egyptians, henchmen, lend me you ears. I have come to bury Batman, not to praise him.
      King Tut uses his own version of Mark Anthony's famous soliloquy of Act 3, scene 2 in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Romans became Egyptians, countrymen became henchmen, and Batman replaces Caesar.
