  • Inque gets hit by a destabilizer ray and seeks out the help of her daughter to get the money she needs to get the chemicals she needs to stay coherent.

    another of the well written plots by the Batman Beyond crew. who would have guessed that inque had a daughter, nevertheless one that age and resentful of her mother? at any rate this episode was as much about Inque and her daughter dealing with their issues as it was with batman trying to chase down inque and the standard cannon for this type of show. the ending was very well handled(reminiscent of TAS's " If your so smart, why arent you rich" ending) and let the door open for a possible return visit from inque in the future.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Deanna: (about Batman being buried under sand and metal) Is he dead?
      Inque: Close enough.

    • Batman: I'm on my way to the Mutagenics lab. If Inque's that badly injured, she's gonna need more mutagene. You track down that account yet?
      Max: Geniuses can't be rushed, you know.
      Batman: So, how mad was Dana that I blew off our date?
      Max: Actually, she wasn't mad at all. Says she understands the special nature of your job.
      Batman: What?!! She found out?!
      Max: Relax. She was talking about your relationship with Mr.Wayne. She said with your dad being gone, it was important that you have a positive father. Bruce Wayne -- some father figure!

    • Dana: Let me guess. He's been summoned by the great Mr. Wayne again? Huh, poor guy.
      Max: You're not mad?
      Dana: Not since I figured what's been really going on...

    • Dana: I didn't know Max was in this class?
      Terry: Max?! (Max holds up some papers) I, er... borrowed the new Didno Boys disc from yesterday. Guess she wants it back.

    • Dana: Do you have some time after school? Some of us are going over to Rhino's, and I thought it would be nice to just hang for a change.
      Terry: I ca -- (Dana frowns) -- I'll make time.
      Dana: Great!

    • (After Inque breaks out of an ice block)
      Batman: What the heck was that?!
      Inque: A new technique, Batman. You think I learned nothing from our previous encounters? You should have minded your own business. (Squeezes Batman, and he presses a button which shocks Inque)
      Batman: New circuitry, Inque. Did you think I learned nothing from our previous encounters?
      Inque: I really don't have time for this, Batman.

    • Batman: Inque!! The last time I saw you, you were washed away in a storm!
      Inque: And now, I am rain water fresh, Batman.
      Batman: Soon to be ice water.

    • Batman: You don't get it! He expects me to work even harder while he's gone.
      Max: Why??
      Batman: He always thinks something bad will happen the minute he leaves town. (a bright light appears) And somehow, he's always right!

    • Max: So where did the old man go for a one-on-one?
      Batman: Tibet. He's visiting some guru-mentor-friend. He's got him all over the place.
      Max: Perfect, you can take Dana out to that cozy restaurant on the beach.
      Batman: Can't, got to work.
      Max: You know you're skating on thin ice with her already.

    • Repo Man: You got a problem, lady.
      (He hands out a card)
      Deanna: Credit counselor? I don't need a counselor, what I need is more credit.

    • Batman: I'd be careful.
      Deanna: Of you?
      Batman: Of your mother.
      Deanna: She's dead.
      Batman: She's been dead before.
