  • Shriek strikes again and garbles all speech in New Gotham.

    just another great example of Terry's growth and on some level or another, the erosion of Bruce's own deductive skills. not only did Terry deduce where Shriek was transmitting from but he began to grasp (i believe anyway) what it means to be Batman. there show be more episodes like this. simply great

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Gordon: He wants Batman. That's his price.
      Bruce: If he wants Batman, he can have me.
      Gordon: You're not him. At least you're not the one he wants.

    • Gordon: Gordon.
      Shriek: It's Shriek. I shut off the interference so you can hear this. I'm willing to give back the city its sanity permanently. In exchange for Batman's life.
      Gordon: Batman. There's no way I can.
      Shriek: Tonight, midnight. Hill Square. If he's not there, things will get even worse.
      Gordon: You're out of your mind.
      Shriek: Duh!

    • Shriek: This isn't how I pictured it--you were supposed to give yourself up to me.
      Batman: Should have gotten that in writing.

    • Bruce: Terry!
      Terry: You sound surprised.
      Bruce: You're not thinking of handing yourself over to him, are you?
      Terry: That's not my first choice. No.
      Bruce: I wouldn't blame you if you stayed home--not after what those ingrates have been saying.

    • Terry: Shreeve was discharged from that mental hospital he was in. They say they cured him.
      Bruce: Cured him, huh? Do you believe that?
      Terry: As the guy he blames for his hearing loss, I'd say "no."

    • Bruce: You think someone in a suit like this could dodge a simple hand grenade.
      Terry: I did dodge a hand grenade, problem was Mad Stan had two.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Terry mentions Mad Stan. Mad Stan shows up for the first time in the episode "Rats".

    • Coincidentally or not, this storyline is echoed 4 months later in JLA #43, shipping date 5/24/2000 (cover date 7/2000). In that JLA storyarc, Ra's Al Ghul disrupts first the ability to read and then speak comprehensibly, although he does so to the entire population of Earth.
