Batman: Come Back, Shame (1)

Shame and his gang steal a racing car during the Gotham City 100. It is the latest in a series of automobile thefts committed by Shame and his desperadoes. He plans to use selected parts from each machine to construct an engine that will allow his truck to outrun the Batmobile itself! Batman, as Bruce Wayne, places a news item as a lure and Shane bites, stealing Wayne's limousine. Following the Bat tracer concealed within it, the Duo locate Shame's hideout, but his moll Annie Oakie gets "the drop" on them and they wind up staked out in the path of an onrushing stampede!

Episode Quotes
Bruce: Slow, boss. Come on, bossy. Come on.
Dick: What's a nice cow like you doing in a place like this?

Rip Snorting: We ain't got a chance against the Dynamic Duo. Leastwise without guns.
Shame: Talkin' to you is like talkin' Pig Latin to a donkey.

Cultural References
The character of Shame is a parody of Shane, the title character played by Alan Ladd in the 1953 western.

Grimaldi Smith: I'm not quite sure but he left a platinum bullet.

Hot Rod Harry: It's "Desert Sands" by Lawrence and the Arabians.

T.E. Lawrence, "Lawrence of Arabia," was a British military officer who helped the Arab nations against the Ottoman Turks during World War I. His life was the basis for the movie Lawrence of Arabia in 1962.

Batman: The best laid plans of mice and men oft gong agley.

Batman paraphrases Robert Burns' 1785 poem "To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough." As is often the case, the word "schemes" from the original is replaced with "plans."
