    Joan Collins does a great job with this somewhat weird villaness who controls people with her 2 octaves above high C voice. She sends Commissioner Gordon to find out the secret identities of Batman and Robin. It is the second time the Commissioner has been in the Batcave ("The Riddler's False Notion" was the other under somewhat different circumstances). But her ultimate goal is the Bruce Wayne fortune and she puts him under her spell to get it and then once she does, she tries to make him jump off the top of a building. But Robin and Batgirl save the day and the Batnesia gas that Alfred sprayed the Commissioner with works and he never remembers being in the Batcave. Bummer...:)moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Bruce Wayne was restored to normal by listening Siren's "antidote note". Gordon and O'Hara do not receive such a treatment (and they couldn't possibly get it, even off-screen), but they are still completely fine and cured by the end of the episode.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • The Siren: I want to become the wickedest woman in Gotham City, and, thus, in the world!

    • Robin: (unknown to him that and entranced Bruce Wayne just sold Siren the building) Your goose so to speak is cooked!
      The Siren: Not by a long shot, short stuff. I now own this building.

    • The Siren: Well look who's here, Batgirl and Batboy!

    • Batgirl: Oh, Bruce, if only you were more like Batman.
      Bruce Wayne: (still under the Siren's stunning spell) Batman...
      Batgirl: Perhaps then you would have had the strength to resist the Siren's stunning spell.

    • Alfred: (under the Siren's spell, Commissioner Gordon has stowed away in the Batmobile after which it returned to the Batcave) Commissioner Gordon, what are you doing here?
      Commissioner Gordon
      : You! You're Alfred, Millionaire Bruce Wayne's butler. And that voice! The same nameless voice that often answers the Batphone.
      Alfred: I'm afraid you're making a mistake, sir.
      Commissioner Gordon: Mistake? Nonsence! Obviously this is the Batcave... Ergo Batman is Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson is Robin the Boy Wonder. Hmm hmm!

    • Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Where do you come from? Where do you go?
      What is your scene? Baby, we just gotta know!

      Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Are you a chick who fell in from outer space,
      Or are you real with a tender warm embrace?
      Yeah, whose baby are you?
      Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Batgirl, Batgirl!
      Yeah, whose baby are you?
      Batgirl!
