Robin: The biggest!
Batman: Tell them, Robin.
Robin: Holy Superlatives, Batman! It's *really* exciting! Soon, very soon, Batman and I will be Batapulting right out of your TV sets and onto your theater screens!
Batman: That's right, Robin. Our first full-length feature motion picture opens a *whole* new world of thrills! The Big Screen gives us mores space on land, sea, and in the air, to challenge the most Bataclysmic collection of supercriminals that ever plotted to take over the world!
Riddler [holding up Van Jones]: Mr. Van Jones, why are you like a clock at midnight? Answer: because both your hands are goin' straight up right now!
Miss Kitka: When I close my eyes, I imagine a world at peace.
Bruce: That's strange... when I close my eyes, I imagine something quite astonishingly different.
Robin: A giant cake of foam rubber! What are the chances?
Batman: I'd say the odds against it would make even the most reckless gambler cringe!
Robin: Holy ______ Batman!
Batman: Commissioner Gordon?
Dr. Chase Meridian: He's at home. I sent the signal.
Batman: What's wrong?
Dr. Chase Meridian: Last night, at the bank, I noticed something about Two-Face. His coin. It's his Achilles' heel. It can be exploited.
Batman: I know. You called me here for this? The Batsignal is not a beeper.
Dr. Chase Meridian: Well I wish I could say that my interest in you was... purely professional.
Batman: You trying to get under my cape, doctor?
Dr. Chase Meridian: A girl can't live by psychoses alone.
Batman: It's the car, right? Chicks love the car.

Batman: Try firemen, less to take off.
Dr. Chase Meridian: I don't mind the work. Pity I can't see behind the mask.
Batman: We all wear masks.
Dr. Chase Meridian: My life's an open book. You read?
Batman: I don't blend in at a family picnic.
Dr. Chase Meridian: Oh, we could give it a try. I'll bring the wine, you bring your scarred psyche.
Batman: Direct aren't you?
Dr. Chase Meridian: You like strong women. I've done my homework. Or do I need skin-tight vinyl and a whip?
Batman: I haven't had that much luck with women.
Dr. Chase Meridian: Maybe you just haven't met the right woman.
Bruce Wayne: [Edward extends his had to shake Bruce's] Mister...?
Edward Nygma: Ohhhhh... Bruce Wayne.
Bruce Wayne: No, that's uh, my name. And you are?
Edward Nygma: Oh! Nygma. Edward... Edward Nygma. You hired me personally. We've never actually met, but you signed the employment form yourself. I have it.
Bruce Wayne: I'm gonna need that hand back, Ed.
Edward Nygma: Oh! Yes, of course! I'm sorry. It's just that... you're my idol.
Fred Stickley: [reaches for Nygma's arm] Back to work Edward.

Bruce Wayne: It's okay. So, Mr. Nygma, what's on your mind?
Edward Nygma: Precisely! What's on all our minds? Brainwaves. [giggles]
Edward Nygma: The future of Wayne Enterprises is brainwaves. [runs into his cubicle]
Fred Stickley: You'll have to forgive this Mr. Wayne. I personally terminated this project this morning!
Bruce Wayne: It's okay.
Edward Nygma: [pops out with a high-tech contraption] I have it! Voila! Huh? My invention beams any TV signal directly into the human brain. By stimulating the neurons, manipulating brainwaves if you will, this device makes the viewer feel like they're actually inside the show! Why be brutalized by an uncaring world?
Bruce Wayne: Did you say manipulating brainwaves?
Edward Nygma: Well... uh... yes.
Bruce Wayne: Hmmm.
Edward Nygma: Not that someone like you would need th

[crouched atop a dazed Batman]
Catwoman: You're catnip to a girl like me. Handsome, dazed, and to die for. You're the second man who killed me this week, but I've got seven lives left.
Batman: I tried to save you.
Catwoman: Seems like every woman you try to save winds up dead... or deeply resentful. Maybe it's time for you to retire.
