The villainous Magpie has broken into an electronic warehouse and is using a headpiece to drain the mind of a psychiatrist, Joe Braxton. Once she's done, she picks up a wooden plaque belonging to the Miskatonic Psychiatric Hospital. As she runs out of the warehouse, Batman attacks her. They spare briefly and he points out that he's been chasing her since she's been robbing electronic warehouses throughout Gotham. Magpie sees Batman's utility belt and describing it as "shiny," asks if she can have it. When Batman refuses, Magpie attacks him with her razor-sharp talons. Batman manages to get a handcuff on one wrist but she knocks him back and escapes into the night. When Batman realizes that he's lost her, he goes to Braxton, who says that he has no idea who he is...

Episode Quotes
Magpie: Hey, you just hit a girl.
Batman: No, I just hit a criminal.

Barbara: So, what perp are you after today?
Lt. Gordon: First, it's "dad," not "lieutenant." Second, "perp"?
Barbara: Yeah, perp. Bad guy.
Lt. Gordon: I know what perp means, Barbara.

Bruce: I don't like secrets, Alfred.
Alfred: You are the very definition of a secret, Bruce.

Magpie: You know, after I last met, I couldn't help wondering what makes someone put on a bat costume. Something to hide?
Batman: Who said this was a costume?
Magpie: Umm, I like that.
