Episode Quotes
Nefertiti: Batman? He turns me on.
King Tut: Nefertiti. We could have you filleted for that.
Nefertiti: But he's so handsome. And clean-cut and groovy.
King Tut: We forbid you to speak well of our deadliest enemy!

Batman: I'll know more after I've delved into the secret archives of the Antiquarian Library of Alexandria.
Commissioner Gordon: Alexandria? Oh, you mean that delightful suburb of Washington, D.C.
Batman: No, Commissioner, Alexandria, Egypt.

Batman: It's time to get set, Robin. It's almost Oda Wabba Simba.
Robin: Almost what?
Batman: Oda Wadda Simba. Almost six o'clock in our nomenclature. In the 14th Dynasty, the Hour of the Hyena. The time when ancient Egyptian super-criminals invariably struck.
Robin: Gosh, Batman, is there anything you don't know?
Batman: Ah. Oh yes, Robin. Several things, in fact.

Robin: Right, Alfred, this one we gotta pull ourselves. To the Batmobile!
Alfred: To the... Batmobile? But... you don't have a... license to drive, Master Robin.
Robin: But you do!

Robin: What the heck. The failure signal.
Batman: Circuits on the blink, I'm afraid.
Robin: How can it be?
Batman: Human mechanisms are made by human hands, Robin. None of them is infallible. It's a lesson which must be faced.
