Batman: Batman's Satisfaction (2)
Green Hornet and Kato have been turned into giant stamps and tacked to a wall while Batman and Robin come to their rescue. The Dynamic Duo try to decipher the clue left in the remaining letters from Col. Gumm's bowl of alphabet soup, pointing them to the International Stamps Exhibition and his plan to steal rare, priceless stamps.
Edward G. Robinson is better know to fans of film noir; he played gangsters and heavies in many such films. Here, he leans out a window during the Bat Climb to discuss art with the Dynamic Duo. In real life, Robinson was an avid art collector.
Robin: But how did the machine take your picture?
Green Hornet: No doubt an automatic-image orthicon of some kind.
Batman: Wrong, Green Hornet. it was a high-felicity spectroboscopic range reflector mini-unit.
Batman: Robin! Have you noticed the Js, Qs, and Zs are missing?
Robin: Holy uncanny photographic mental processes!
Robin: Gosh, Batman. It's sure a good thing you brought that empty alphabet soup Batcontainer.
Batman: Right, Robin--the right tool for the right job.
Britt Reid: It's guys like the Green Hornet and Batman that see all action--get all the kicks.
Bruce: Would you trade places with them?
Britt Reid: Well, not with Batman. I wouldn't be caught dead in that crazy cowl of his.
Batman: And so because of a woman's vanity, a battle may be lost.
Robin: Lost?!? I'm surprised at you, Batman. Many battles have been won before electricity and telephone were ever invented!
Batman: Gosh, Robin, you may be right.
Robin: Just arrange to have the stamp exhibition in the Constellation Room tonight, well publicized. Then there's bound to be some action. And a Bat-Climb up Gotham Towers West will help us flex our muscles. Chin up, old chum.
Green Hornet: We're heading for another clash with the Caped Crusaders, and I don't like it.
Kato: Why not? We've never run away from trouble before.
Green Hornet: Yes, but this double identity poses extra problems this time. We know they're heroic crimefighters. They think we're criminals. We must come out on top, but they mustn't suffer.
Kato: Kung fu is kung fu. It's not child's play.
Green Hornet: I know, but our tricks are going to have to be tempered with good judgment.
Edward G. Robinson: bit of an art buff yourself, aren't you, Batman?
Batman: I'm afraid that crimefighting only allows me the luxury of collecting criminals.
Robin: But you should see the great mug shots we've got.
