DRIVER: You sure you wanna get off here?
DICK: Yeah. Hey, ever pick up this guy?
DRIVER: Can't says I have/ Who is he? Or old man, or somethin'?
DICK: Yeah, something.
LENNIE (from inside dumpster): Hey! Let me out! There's roaches in here!
DICK STOPS AND LOOKS AT THE APPROACHING BATWING.
DICK: Where we goin'?
ZUCCO: Don't tell me what I gotta worry about. I'm not back in town five
minutes-- five minutes-- and he's on my tail. You don't know the bat. He

ROBIN: Stuff your advice, Batman! You and your stone cold heart! You

ROBIN: Come on, partner, it's been a long night.

size and in shape. There wasn't very many powerful scenes either, or
