When Ma gets into the cab of the truck, she says in a normal voice she has a slight headache. A few minutes later, Batman says he overheard the comment. At the time Ma said it, Batman was far enough away that he had to run for 10 seconds to get to where the truck was parked. He couldn't have heard her from that distance over the sound of the truck's engine.
When Ma hijacks the truck outside of the theater, she has the truck driver stay in the cab, while she orders her two boys into the back. One trips and is left behind. As the truck drives away, the driver has disappeared and her remaining boy is driving.

Ma Parker and her felonious family are loosely based on the real gangstress Kate "Ma" Barker and her sons Herman, Lloyd, Arthur and Fred. They teamed up with Alvin Karpis and several other criminals forming The Barker-Karpis Gang which rampaged across the Midwest from 1931 to 1935. While the Parker family characters are based on "Ma" Barker's sons, the names of those sons come from a variety of sources. The Mad Dog Parker name is lifted from the 1941 movie classic High Sierra starring Humphrey Bogart who played the desperate gangster Roy "Mad Dog" Earle. Machine Gun Parker's moniker comes from Machine Gun Kelly , a notorious criminal during the Prohibition Era who spent 17 years on Alcatraz Island into his old age where he became known as "Pop Gun Kelly." Pretty Boy Parker comes from Charles Arthur "Pretty Boy" Floyd, a notorious American bank robber who was gunned in East Livermore, Ohio by local law enforcers and FBI agents led by Melvin Purvis on October 22, 1934.
