Recap

A robber escapes a bank at night. As the alarms go off, he tosses his loot in the car and a voice calls to him from the darkness, advising him to surrender. Batman slips through the shadows and finally approaches him when he wastes his shots. The robber considers whether to go for his backup piece, but when he draws it Batman easily disarms him. However, the robber's partner attacks Batman, using a pair of metal-enhanced fists. The other robber grabs his gun and fires, and Batman disarms him with two Batarangs before disposing of his partner...

Episode Quotes
Bruce: What's wrong?
Alfred: It took you five moves to subdue me. It should only have taken you three. Your reaction to me at the foot of your bed was sloppy at best. If I hadn't purposely...
Bruce: Do we need to do this now?

Bruce: We've had this conversation. Your job is to protect Bruce Wayne, not Batman.
Alfred: Are they not the same?
Bruce: No.

Bruce: What's this?
Alfred: It appears to have occurred last night. Perhaps if you hadn't slept most of the day. Then again, bats are nocturnal creatures.

Professor Pyg: Poor Simon Stagg, sure likes to brag. And covet his millions all day. But he's not the last with stolen keys to the past, who learn in the jungle...
Mr. Toad: Everyone pays.

Mr. Toad: Boss! It's the Bat Guy.
Professor Pyg: It's Batman, Toad. Remember, respect our enemies.

Tatsu: So why are you snooping around this Stagg guy's financials? I thought you were retired.
Alfred: Being retired and being out of the game are two very different things, my dear. But I don't need to tell you that.

Professor Pyg: I say, this isn't Bruce Wayne. I believe you've sacked the butler.
Mr. Toad: I was sure that was Wayne.
Professor Pyg: I told you to get your eyes checked. Retinal deterioration is the number one cause of blindness in amphibians.

Alfred: Stop! My ankle's broken.
Professor Pyg: Perhaps I have a bandage for that. Sorry, old chap, fresh out. Looks like that leg is going to have to come off!
