Batman: The Penguin Declines (3)

After a giant clam swallows Robin, Batman's inner strength enables him to snap his chains and pry open the shell of the enormous bivalve, freeing his sidekick. Meanwhile, Joker has freed Penguin from prison again to help with the final Zodiac crimes. The first plot involves "stealing" Gotham's reservoir by turning it into red jelly (Aquarius). Meanwhile, Penguin tries to woo Venus so that she will ask Batman to take her to the Batcave, where she will remove Penguin's card from the Batcomputer, enabling him to start with a "clean slate." But it is a trick: Joker, Penguin and assorted henchmen catch a ride in the trunk of the Batmobile!

Batman: Correction, Robin. Pearls come from oysters. You came out of that clam!

The Joker: Get Penguin's clothes for him! Hurry!
The Penguin: Get my clothes for me? I've got them on!
The Joker: Oh, so you do! For a minute, I thought those were prison issue!
The Penguin: Prison issue?! This sartorial triumph, a prison issue?!?
The Joker: Well, sometime I'll give you the name of my tailor!
The Penguin: Sometime I'll give you a piece of my mind! Like right now!
