Batman: The Mad Hatter Runs Afoul (2)

The Mad Hatter and his men trap the Dynamic Duo in a fluoroscope, whose powerful X-Rays will soon cook them! Indeed, when the Hatter returns moments later, Batman and Robin are nothing but skeletons! Thinking Batman is out of his way he then proceeds with his real plan: replace the ruby from the Golden Buddha Of Bergama in the Gotham museum with the paste imitation he stole from Hattie Hatfield, a copy of the real Hatfield Ruby. As the world mourns, the Hatter plans to emerge the king of Gotham Crime!

Episode Quotes
The Mad Hatter: What's the matter, Polly, I told you what to expect.
Polly: But I didn't expect it. Why did you bring me here if you knew about this all the time?
The Mad Hatter: Every man likes a pretty girl with him at a skeleton dance.

The Mad Hatter: There's still ground to be covered. But with Batman and Robin out of the way, as I've seen with my own two eyes, the rest of this caper should be a picnic.
Polly: A picnic? At a time like this.

Commissioner: Gordon: A cleaning woman at the Gotham Atomic Energy Laboratory...
Chief O'Hara: Come now, easy does it.
Commissioner Gordon: ...just called the editor of the Gotham Post Tribune.
Chief O'Hara: Maybe if you loosened your tie a little?
Commissioner Gordon: And told him...
Chief O'Hara: Have you still got that bottle here in your drawer?
Commissioner Gordon: ...that she had seen the... the skeletons... of Batman and Robin.
Chief O'Hara: The what?
Commissioner Gordon: The skeletons of The Caped Crusaders, shrouded in their cowls.
Chief O'Hara: Hold on to me, Commissioner.

The Mad Hatter: Now don't go soft on me, Polly. Who made Batman and Robin famous crimefighters? Criminals, that's who. If you want to show a little respect to the departed, stay crooked. That's the least you could do.
Benny: Sure, boss.
Skimmer: You bet.
Polly: I guess you're right, Jervis. It is sort of like putting flowers on their graves.

Batman: Right now Robin and I are off to nail Mad Hatter.
Commissioner Gordon: The Mad Hatter? At a time like this? Who cares about that pipsqueak's inconsequential crimes?
Batman: No crime, no matter how large or small, Commissioner Gordon, is a violation of a public right and common law, and the criminal or criminals committing such an offense must be apprehended for all human morality.

Batman: Well, old chum, out of the sarcophagus and back into the saddle.

Robin: Holy hoodwink! Or Holy naïveté, take your choice.
Batman: Exactly, Robin.

Aunt Harriet: Well, perhaps it's just as well. At least Batman and Robin, wherever they are...
Bruce and Dick: And whoever they are beneath those masks they wear.
Aunt Harriet: ...must know with what esteem they are held in the hearts of all the people on this earth.
