In 1865, Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary enjoy a performance of My American Cousin, unaware that John Wilkes Booth has entered their private compartment. Booth prepares to shoot the President, but Batman arrives and disarms him. Undeterred, the assassin activates his steam-powered battle armor. While Lincoln gets his wife to safety, Batman tries to tackle Booth. He fails, but Lincoln grabs a fireaxe, cuts Booth’s steam line, and knocks him back. Batman recovers and they throw axe and Batarang together, causing Booth’s steam valve to explode. Once the assassin is subdued, Batman congratulates Lincoln and departs back through a portal to his own reality. ..

Episode Quotes
Batman: John Wilkes Booth! Halt, you insidious secessionist!

John Wilkes Booth: Say hello to John Wilkes Boom!

Batman: Cease your simian siege now, Gorilla Grodd!

Gorilla Grodd: No creature on land or sea can match my superior intellect!
Aquaman: Then it's a good thing it's not wits we've come to battle!

Bat-Mite: The Brave and the Bold is starting to stink worse than Gorilla Grodd's armpits!

Neon-Powered Super-Street Bat-Luge: Destination at hand, Batman.
Batman: Thanks, Neon-Powered Super-Street Bat-Luge!

Ambush Bug: You have to stop this, Bat-Mite.
Bat-Mite: Ambush Bug? You're a pretty obscure hero, even for this show.

Bat-Mite: You know, this means war. Let's see how you like the Dark Knight in another one of those hideous, variant Batman costumes you only find on store shelves.
Ambush Bug: Alpine Ice-Climber Batman? How could you?

Aquaman 2: Does this mean we'll be able to save the show?
Batman: The important thing, Aquaman, is that we save the day. That's our job. But if this is going to be the end, let's give everyone one last thing to remember. That petulant primate's poisonous ploy must be prevented!

Ambush Bug: I can't believe it. I'm talking to the real Ted McGinley.
Aquaman 2: I'm sorry, but who's this McGinley chap you have me confused with?
Ambush Bug: Only one of the finest comedic actor of our generation.
Aquaman 2: Wow. Thanks. Sometimes I think people only associate me with the whole "jump the shark" thing. You know, Married With Children was on the air seven years after I came on. Just so you know.
Ambush Bug: Ah-ha! Tricked you into breaking character!
Aquaman 2: Wha---? Outrag... You know, I don't really get this show anyway. I'm out of here.

Batman: So, this is really it.
Ambush Bug: Yeah, looks like. At least you can say you had a good run.
Batman: A great run. And until we meet again, boys and girls, know that wherever evil lurks, in all its myriad forms, I'll be there with the Hammers of Justice to fight for decency and defend the innocent. Good night.
