  • Scary

    It's a good episode, again heavily reliant on darkness to dampen the mood. The ending is pretty tense and leaves you with a double fear: that Batman and Robin will be both unmasked... and run over by an approaching train.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Narrator: Another glorious, sun-drenched day in Gotham City. A fitting day for nuptials, exhibits, or grand theft!

    • Blaze: You've got quite a grip there, Caped Crusader.
      Batman: A sound mind in a sound body. A necessity in the relentless war against crime.

    • Batman: Blaze. She's as elusive as a flickering flame.
      Robin: I'll bet that's how she earned her nickname.
      Batman: I warrant you, we'll snuff out her fiery criminal career.

    • False Face: Boys, we are about to double-dupe Batman and Robin until the Dexterous Duo is duped, decoyed, and diabolically destroyed!

    • Bruce Wayne: Mr. Ladd, we'll keep you informed and let you know just as soon as your missing money truck is found.
      Mr. Ladd: Bless you, Batman. Every law-abiding citizen of Gotham City goes with you today in spirit.
      Ladd's Secretary: And if it were possible, in body.

    • Batman: That's False Face himself, in disguised person.
      False Face: Yeah, what makes you so sure?
      Batman: It's obvious. Only a criminal would disguise himself as a licensed bonded guard. Yet callously park in front of a fire hydrant.

    • FalseFace: The Express will be through here inside of five minutes, Batman. Inside of six, no more Batman!
      Robin: Fiend!
      Batman: FalseFace, you'll regret this! Eventually.

    • Narrator: Disaster threatens. Bashed by the BMT? Will the Dynamic Duo dice with death--and descend to defeat? Can Batman and Robin break the unbreakable, slip out of the chemical clutches, escape the epoxy? Keep your Batwings crossed until tomorrow. Same Time - Same Channel - Same Perilous Predicament!
