Batman: The Bird's Last Jest (2)

Narrowly evading Penguin's machine gun trap and preventing the arch criminal from cooking Chief O'Hara in an electrified swimming pool, Batman arrests The Penguin. Acting on behalf of the people, Batman attempts to send The Penguin to jail, but Penguin accidentally talks himself free! Batman has discovered why Penguin wants to go to prison - he wants to take samples of rich folks' writing to Ballpoint Baxter, who will help him forge checks! Batman disguises Alfred as "Quillpen Quirch," infamous British forger, but Penguin sees through this trick!

Episode Quotes
Maty Dee: (as their machinegun runs out of ammo) Curses! We're out of ammunition.
Robin: Maybe it's a trick to get us out from behind our Bat-shield.
Batman: No trick, Robin. They are out of ammunition.
Robin: How do you know?
Batman: Easy. I've been counting their bullets.

Bailiff: Mr. Penguin and his rascally restaurateurs.
Judge Moot: On what charge?
Bailiff: Various, your honor--kidnapping of a police chief. Illegal electrification of a swimming pool. Littering public property with machinegun cartridges without license thereof. Attempted murder, mayhem, battery, and compound assault.
Judge Moot: Dear me, most serious.

Robin: I bet Batman is the only one in the world with a hand steady enough to paint false fingerprints.
Batman: Come, come now, Robin, don't exaggerate. All it takes is a little practice and a bit of patience.

Cultural References
Judge Moot takes his name from moot, an archaic term for a body that exercised various political powers in England, among them judicial powers (like a modern court, more or less).
