Episode Notes
In one scene, Batman knocks over a pillar by wedging himself between its top and the ceiling and forcing it to break free, an obvious homage to a scene in the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark."

Episode Quotes
Bruce: You've got a serious priority problem, Ra's. What can be in that tomb that's more valuable than the love of your daughter?
Ra's Al Ghul: Power, detective.

Bruce: You surprise me, Ra's. The world's oldest chauvinist, chasing after a woman?
Ra's Al Ghul: Thoth Khepera was not simply a woman, detective, nor merely a ruler. Through her flow the power of the gods! With no more than a gesture she controlled the force of life and death, and with it she kept a nation under her thumb for one thousand years.
Bruce: You sound like a bad Saturday afternoon serial, Ra's.
