    • Batgirl: What's up your sleeve this time?
      Riddler: Up my sleeve, Batgirl? Riddle me once: what's most alluring when it's highest or lowest; when it's in the air or in a hole; when it's served you, yet you can't touch it? An enchanting ace!

    • Robin: Gosh, Batman, this camel grass juice is great!
      Batman: Beware of strong stimulants, Robin.

    • Batman: It's lucky you were in the vicinity of Gotham Square Garden.
      Batgirl: Yes, luck is an important weapon to a woman crime fighter, Batman.

    • Batman: Any last riddles, Riddler?
      Riddler: Yes. What keeps coming back no matter how many times you throw it away?
      Batman: That's easy. A boomerang.
      Riddler: Yes. I... am a boomerang.... and I'll... be... back.
      (Riddler falls down, unconscious)

    • Riddler: When is the top of a mountain like a savings account? When it piques one's interest!

    • Riddler: Oh, what's looser than a thread? A fish. Flying ribbons! A woman's tongue! Possibly Batgirl's.

    • Riddler: Batgirls wilt just as quickly as other women!

    • Riddler: Riddle me this. When does a painter use a trigger instead of a brush? When he's a stickup artist!

    • Batgirl: What's up your sleeve this time?
      Riddler: Up my sleeve, Batgirl? Riddle me once. What's most alluring when it's highest or lowest. When it's in the air or in a hole? When it's served you, yet you can't touch it? An enchanting ace!

    • Riddler: Riddle me this, Batman. What are the chilliest 12 inches in the world?
      Batman: Cold feet!
      Riddler: Excellent! What suite of cards lays eggs?
      Batman: One that's chicken-hearted. Now listen to this, Riddler. Sticks and stones may break my bones...
      Riddler: Now you listen to me, Batman! My line is plugged into radio station GTZR! That means that all of Gotham City. (Giggling) Has heard you called. (Giggling) A coward!
      (Giggling)

  • Notes

    • This is the last episode that James Brolin appears in for remainder of the series.

    • The Riddler's right name, Edward Nygma, was never used in the TV series.

    • This is the only time throughout the entire third season The Dynamic Duo are seen executing their famous Batclimb; apparently this is stock footage, perhaps gleaned from Season 1 episode, "The Penguin Goes Straight".

    • This is the final appearance of Frank Gorshin as The Riddler, despite his claim that, "like a boomerang, I shall be back." The Riddler does return, in the episode, "The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra" (March 7, 1968), but Gorshin does not!

    • Madge Blake (as Aunt Harriet) makes one of 2 cameo appearances on Batman in this episode. This was done to accommodate her ill health (she succumbed to a heart attack at age 69 on February 19, 1969).
