  • The plot is to steal caviar...never cared for it myself

    7.0
    As usual, Anne Baxter (in her second villaness role in the series; she was Zelda the Great in the first season) is charming as the Queen of the Beserovian Cossacks, but that's about it for this otherwise uninteresting episode. How poor Vincent Price got himself into the role as Egghead is beyond me. The "caviar" that Batgirl almost drowned is was actually diced Jello; not sure which would have been worse, to be honest. The mention by Chief Ohara at the end of them not wanting to go into the paddy wagon instead of wanting to was a reference to the ealier episode in which Egghead tries to hatch a dinosaur.moreless

    • (To Egghead)
      Olga: You are a heartless, hairless man. I am liking you more and more.

    • Egghead: Oh, protect me, Batgirl. That monster is going to shoot me.
      Batgirl: You're not so brave when your henchmen aren't around, are you, Egghead?
      Egghead: Oh, I never claimed to be brave, Batgirl. No, I'm--I'm clever and crafty but I'm a complete coward.

    • Egghead: Oh, please, you can't ask me to rat on my friends.
      Batgirl: Oh, yes I can, and you'd better start ratting fast.
      Egghead: Do you expect me, a--a, a respected arch-criminal to--to fink on my friends like a, like a common stool pigeon?
      Batgirl: Of course.
      Egghead: All right, I'll do it.

    • Egghead: Oh, you can trust me, Batgirl.
      Batgirl: I'd sooner trust a snake with fangs at both ends.

    • Batgirl: The ambush is on the other foot now, Egghead.

    • Batgirl: Help, Batman! I'm drowning. I'm also freezing!
      Batman: Batgirl's being frozen in that caviar!

    • Batgirl: They almost turned me into a human hors d'oeuvre. What a chilling way to die.
      Robin: Holy cold creeps! Leave it to crooks like them to think of a trick like this.
      Batman: Yes, that's to be expected, Robin. The concept of decency is alien to the criminal mind.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Some footage used in "The Ogg Couple"'s teaser sequence is cribbed from Episode #1705-Pt. 2, "How to Hatch a Dinosaur."

    • This was originally planned as a third installment for episodes #102/#103 (all were shot together over nine days), but rather than have ABC air another 3-parter, the producers split up the episodes.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Title:
      An allusion to Neil Simon's The Odd Couple, the 1965 Broadway play which in 1968 was made into a film of the same name.
