Detective Ethan Bennett (Season 1; guest otherwise)
Bruce Wayne / Batman
Detective Ellen Yin
Chief Angel Rojas
Joker didn't have nearly enough time to put his face onto the statue.
Joker said that he didn't know what contact with the "Joker putty" would do, but he'd been handling it with his bare hands to mold the statue. (Reply: Joker never actually handles "Joker Putty" (by-products, yes, but never the original). Also, recall that he is a metahuman, and the stuff might not affect him because of his altered DNA, as we see when he inhales the fumes.)
Yin: Freeze, Batman. There's no escape. (after a standoff, Yin lowers her gun and sighs) Go. You saved my partner's life. This is the repayment of that debt. The next time we meet, Batman, the mask comes off.
Joker: Such an award-winning smile, Monfraire. (looks to other face) Ashamed about your ugly stepsister? (putties the face) Turn that frown upside down. (laughs) Oops.
Ethan: Yeah, oops.
Joker: I hope this means that your chief finally considers me more of a menace than the Batman. By the way, detective, have you met my colleagues, Judy, and ... Punch? (Punch punches Ethan, knocking him out)
Joker: Have a rotten day, detective.
Rojas: Kudos to my department for capturing Joker without the Batman's help I might add.
Ethan: You gotta be kidding. We were playing clean-up like always. The Batman saved my butt tonight.
Reporter: Chief, did the Batman catch Joker?
Rojas: There will be no further comment. No comment!
Ethan: The Chief has a zero tolerance policy just for creeps like you, Joker. He'll never pay ransom for me.
Joker: I don't need ransom, handsome. Gotham is putty in my hands. I take what I want, when I want. I'm simply out to prove to your beefy Chiefy, once and for all, that Joker is the master of menace by breaking one of Gotham's finest. I won't break your bones, detective. I'm going to ... snap your twig. (spins the dizzy wheel) When Joker's done clowning with you ... you won't know where to find your mind.
Joker: The Yin to his Yang!
(As Ellen Yin holds the Joker at gunpoint)
Joker: (points putty gun at Ethan) Drop it, or laughing boy gets it. You don't know what this stuff does to humans. (Ellen lowers her gun) For that matter, neither do I. Let's find out!
Joker: Ha ha! The circus is in town!
Joker: When Joker's through clowning with you, you won't know where to find your mind!
Joker: A very thin line separates normality from insanity!
Joker: Ah, so we have issues with ze boss, eh? Well, who doesn't? Bosses make terrific tormentors. "Tote that barge, lift that bale, rewrite that script, sort that mail!" All it takes is one too many orders to make the cuckoo call.
Joker: Hold the mayo! I'm the vandal here! You mean to tell me the Chief of Police considers this ... vigilante (Batman) a greater menace than the Clown Prince of Crime?! Why, that's an outrage! An insult! In fact, detective, I resemble that remark!
Joker: (to Bennett) I won't break your bones, Detective. (points to head) I'm going to snap your twig!
Joker: All it takes is one rotten day to transform a normal man into a monster! Well, in my case, a rotten day and a chemical bath!
Joker: Through the looking glass, Batsy. Where comedy is tragedy, down is up, black is white. You're outta luck!
This episode along with "Clayface Of Tragedy" was released on DVD as a promo disc with the one disc version of Batman Begins (at Wal-Mart only).
This marks the third appearance of Joker for the season.
UK airdate: August 17, 2005.
This episode is loosely based around Alan Moore's "The Killing Joke," written in 1988. The story, originally intended to be a one-shot out of continuity story, details parts of the Joker's origin and is most famous for the scenes where Joker shoots Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl) and kidnaps her father. Many parallels can be drawn between the two, including Joker's attempt to drive his hostage insane, parts of his origin, and a showdown in the hall of mirrors.
Clayface's origin has been changed from Matt Hagen to Ethan Bennett.
In a flashback, the Joker's origin is revealed. He did fall in a chemical bath, but the reason why is never explained.
Clayface is born.
According to his rant, Joker seems to have been a writer of some sort before he became who he is now.
Bane and Mr. Freeze make their second appearance as pictures on the police station wall. Penguin is another of the pictures, with Joker and (eventually) Batman as the others.
Joker "officially" declares himself the "Clown Prince of Crime," a title he's held for quite a while in the comics, as well as in Batman: TAS.
Jesse Corti takes over the role of Chief Angel Rojas from Edward James Olmos.
Punch and Judy, Joker's henchmen, are introduced.
Teletoon airdate: January 9, 2005.
Many elements of this episode seem to refer to the famous Batman graphic novel 'The Killing Joke', such as the Joker psychologically torturing Ethan Bennett in an amusement park and the showdown with Batman in the hall of mirrors. Other elements that seem to support this are the Joker lines "A very thin line separates normality from insanity!" and "all it takes is one rotten day to turn a man into a monster". Not to mention the brief flashback to Joker's origin.
Joker The Yin to his Yang.
Joker compares Yin and Bennett to the Asian concept of Yin and Yang, which represents many complementary characteristics including male and female.
Joker: Tote that barge! Lift that bale! Rewrite that script! Sort that mail!
Joker parodies lines from Cole Porter's song Old Man River to reinforce to Bennett that he is being slave-driven.
Joker: Ah, so ve haf issues vis ze boss, eh?
Joker parodies the Austrian psychotherapist Sigmund Freud, as he programs Detective Bennett.
Joker: You're in the looking glass!
A reference to an Alice in Wonderland book, "Through the Looking Glass".
n/a: Punch and Judy
"Punch and Judy" was an old vaudeville-era act consisting of two puppets, one of which would beat the other over the head with a baseball bat of sorts. This parallels what the Joker's henchmen are doing here.
