    Batman: I'm getting an 
            emergency signal 
            from Gotham 
            Air & Space.  
    
    *****************************
    
    Guard: Who the--? 
           Stay back! 
    
    Woof: GRRrrr...
          We're Jokerz, Pal. 
          Say 'G'night'!

    ********************************************
    Batman: Bruce, you read me? 
            Something's going 
            down at Gotham Air 
            & Space. 
            I'm going to check 
            it out. 
    
    Bruce: Be careful, Terry. 
           That's strange, 
           that lab is only 
           Research and 
           Development.
           There's not much 
           a common thief 
           could do with any 
           of that. 
    
    Batman: I guess we'll 
            find out.
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: I heard he's 
              planning to make 
              all of Gotham City 
              into--
    
    Jokerz#2: Shhh...
              You never know 
              who might be 
              listening. 
    
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: How much longer?
              I'm getting bored
              just standing
              around. 
    
    Jokerz#2: Keep your shirt 
              on. 
              I'll tell you what 
              I do know, this is 
              not like any job 
              we've ever done. 
              We're really 
              aiming high this 
              time.  
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz: Holy Cow! 
            It's Batman! 
            What do we do?
    
    Bonk: Calm down. 
          I'll take care of 
          Batman. 
          Keep working! 
          You got a death 
          wish, Batman? 
          Come on, just try 
          and stop us! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz: Uh-oh, Bonk. 
            We busted the 
            console. 
    
    Bonk: Wh-What?! 
          You're useless! 
          You blew it! 
    
    Jokerz: Well, we got the 
            memory board....
    
    Bonk: I guess that'll
          have to do. 
          Let's get out of 
          here.

    Bruce: Rough night? 
    
    Batman: You know the 
            Jokerz are going 
            in for Splicing 
            now? 
            A crazy Hyena-boy 
            nearly took a bite 
            out of me. 
    
    Bruce: Well, it seems 
           like the Jokerz 
           have a new boss. 
    
    Terry: Third time this 
           month they stole 
           high-tech 
           components. 
           What are they up 
           to? 
    
    Bruce: It's the Jokerz 
           so they can only 
           be up to no good. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Chucko: Batman showed up 
            so we had to ditch. 
    
    Joker: Uh-huh. And? 
    
    Chucko: We busted the 
            console so we had 
            to leave it. 
            But we got the 
            console's memory 
            board. 
            I know it's not 
            much but--
    
    Joker: It's not much? 
           It's nothing! 
           You losers. 
           Now old Joker will 
           have to try. 
           I'll stage a 
           comeback at the 
           Wayne Enterprises 
           building and 
           distract security 
           while you steal 
           what we need. 
           It'll be a blast! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Bruce: Ladies and 
           Gentlemen, 
           it's a pleasure to 
           see you all again. 
           As you know, 
           I've resumed the 
           leadership of 
           Wayne Enterprises 
           and I hope to--
    
    Joker: Hello, Gotham City! 
           Joker's back in 
           town! 
    
    Bruce: Joker?! 
           It can't be! 
           Oh, no, your old 
           eyes do not 
           deceive you, 
           Brucie. 
           After all, who'd 
           know me better 
           than you? 
    
    ********************************************
    *                 Level 2                  *
    ********************************************
    Terry: Bruce! 
           Can you hear me? 
           He's not 
           answering. 
           I've got to get 
           him out of there. 
    
    Barbara: Terry, can you 
             hear me? 
             It's Barbara. 
    
    Terry: Barbara, Bruce is 
           in trouble. 
    
    Barbara: I know. 
             I moved all the 
             guests to safety. 
             But the Joker has 
             Bruce. 
             Hurry! 
    
    Terry: I'm on my way! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: The building is 
           ours! 
           I'm king of the 
           world! 
           Ha ha ha! 
    
    Jokerz: Everything is 
            proceeding as 
            planned, Joker. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: How's the other 
           team doing? 
           They better do 
           the job right 
           this time. 
    
    Jokerz#2: They've disabled 
              the security 
              system. 
              Anything Wayne 
              Enterprises has is 
              ours for the 
              taking. 
              Chucko will get  
              what you need, 
              count on it. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: So you're the new 
           Batboy, eh? 
           I heard you 
           stopped my boys 
           last time. 
           It won't be so 
           easy now. 
    
    Woof: Grrrr! 
    
    Joker: Woof, he's all 
           yours! 
           Keep him busy 
           until Chucko gets 
           the part we need. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Chucko: Boss, 
            I got the 
            component. 
    
    Joker: All righty then! 
           Let's go, boys! 
           As for you, 
           Batfake, I guess 
           you win the grand 
           prize: 
           old Brucie 
           Wayne himself! 
           Ta-ta!

    Terry: Heck of a night, 
           eh, Bruce? 
           The Joker looks 
           pretty spry for 
           a guy who's gotta 
           be in his 
           mid-eighties. 
    
    Bruce: ... 
    
    Terry: Bruce? 
           Did you hear me? 
    
    Bruce: I heard you. 
    
    Terry: What's on your 
           mind? 
           Any theories? 
    
    Bruce: Drop it. 
           Just drive, Terry. 
    
    Terry: Yes, SIR.

    ********************************************
    Bruce: Where are you, 
           terry? 
    
    Terry: In Arkham Asylum, 
           Bruce. 
           When you were
           Batman, you put 
           all the worst 
           criminals here, 
           right? 
    
    Bruce: Terry, that was a 
           million years ago, 
           there's nothing 
           left there now. 
           Get back to the 
           cave. 
    
    Terry: The Joker spent 
           years here. 
           I may find some 
           clues-- 
    
    Bruce: Terry, get back 
           here NOW! 
    
    Terry: Okay, okay, 
           but this place is 
           a wreck, there's 
           no threat here. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: What's the boss 
              want in a spooky 
              place like this? 
    
    Jokerz#2: Memories, I guess. 
              He used to live 
              here.  
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: Man, I don't 
              understand what 
              went on in the
              heads of those
              crazy oldtime 
              villains. 
    
    Jokerz#2: Me neither. 
              But we can sure 
              use some of the 
              stuff around here 
              to take care of 
              the Bat. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: So when does the 
              boss start the 
              fireworks? 
    
    Jokerz#2: Maybe there's 
              still a component 
              missing. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: You again, 
           Batfake? 
           Don't bother me, 
           kid, I'm 
           reminiscing. 
           I have such fond 
           memories of this 
           place. 
           In fact, 
           I BECAME a memory 
           here. 
    
    Batman: What do you mean 
            by that? 
            What are you up 
            to, Joker? 
    
    Joker: Ask the old man, 
           Batboy. 
           But you're 
           intruding, brat. 
           Young people have 
           no manners these 
           days. 
           Ghoul, teach him 
           some manners. 
    
    Ghoul: School's in 
           session, Batman! 
           Today's lesson is 
           about PAIN. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: Ooops, I guess 
           Ghoul is the one 
           who needs more 
           education. 
    
    Batman: Now it's your 
            turn, Joker! 
    
    Joker: 'Fraid not, 
           Batfake. 
           I just wanted to 
           visit my final 
           resting place 
           before I burn 
           everything to 
           ashes. 
    
    Batman: What do you mean, 
            "ashes"? 
    
    Joker: You'll find out 
           soon, Brat, but 
           not soon enough, 
           I'm afraid! 
           Ha ha ha!

    Terry: Bruce, I'm back. 
           Bruce, you here? 
    
    (Bruce is unconscious on the floor)
    
    Terry: BRUCE! 
           What happened? 
           Who did this? 
    
    *****************************
    
    Terry: Thanks for coming, 
           Barbara. 
           I didn't know who 
           else to call. 
    
    Barbara: Did you say you 
             went to Arkham? 
    
    Terry: Yes. 
           Joker was there. 
           He called it his 
           "final resting 
           place" and to ask 
           Bruce why. 
           Obviously I can't 
           now. 
    
    Barbara: He said that? 
    
    Terry: Yes. 
           Bruce has been 
           acting very 
           strange since 
           Joker reappeared. 
           What happened 
           between them? 
    
    Barbara: Some hurts never 
             go away. 
             You deserve to 
             know the truth. 
             It was forty years 
             ago... 
             Robin was out 
             alone one night 
             when he fell into 
             a trap. 
             When we realized 
             he was missing, 
             Bruce and I 
             scoured the city. 
             We pressed every 
             underworld 
             connection, but 
             there was no word 
             on Robin. 
             Then one night we 
             were sent an 
             invitation by the 
             Joker-- 
             -- to the ruined 
             Arkham Asylum. 
             Joker had Robin. 
             Bruce and I were 
             able to save him, 
             but it was too 
             late. 
             Robin was never 
             the same. 
             Joker had altered 
             Robin's 
             personality, 
             creating a hideous 
             "Joker Junior."
             It took a year but 
             we were able to 
             recover his 
             memory, restore 
             his sanity. 
             Bruce blamed 
             himself for what 
             happened. 
             He forbade Tim to 
             be Robin again. 
             Tim didn't like 
             it. 
             He felt he had 
             earned the right 
             to make that 
             decision for 
             himself.
             Tim left soon 
             after that. 
             Tim now leads an 
             ordinary life. 
             He's a top-level 
             communications 
             engineer.

    Batman: Mr. Tim Drake? 
            I need to ask you 
            a few questions 
            regarding the 
            Joker. 
            Joker has stolen 
            several 
            components from 
            Gotham Air & Space 
            and Wayne 
            Enterprises.  
            I was hoping as an 
            communications 
            engineer you could 
            tell me what he 
            might be able to 
            do with them. 
            Mr. Drake? Sir? 
            He's a hologram!

    Joker: Good work, 
           Batfake! 
           You tracked me 
           down! 
           The disgruntled 
           Tim Drake is 
           indeed in my 
           employ. 
    
    Batman: What's your crazy 
            scheme, Joker? 
    
    Joker: Wouldn't you like 
           to know? 
           I guess it can't 
           hurt to tell a 
           caged bat what 
           else is flying 
           tonight. 
           This is one of 
           Uncle Sam's 
           orbiting defense 
           satellites. 
           A handy little 
           laser gadget for 
           shooting down 
           missiles --
           -- or giving 
           someone a world- 
           class hotfoot! 
    
    Batman: You gained control 
            of it with a 
            computer you built 
            with the parts you 
            stole! 
    
    Joker: Ding! Ding! 
           Correct answer, 
           brat! 
           Tell him what he's 
           won, Johnny! 
           A sneak peek at 
           the giant smiley 
           face I'm going to 
           laser-carve into 
           Gotham City! 
    
    Batman: You're crazy, 
            Joker. 
            I'll never let you 
            get away with 
            that. 
    
    Joker: You're too late, 
           Batman. 
           Drake has already 
           provided me with 
           the communication 
           codes. 
           Just stay right 
           there and you can 
           be the first 
           cinder on the 
           block! 
           ha ha! 
    
    (The laser starts firing at Gotham City) 
    
    THEEEEEEE........
    
    Batman: You counted me out 
            too soon, Joker, 
            but I'm not the 
            Batman you know-- 
            as you'll soon 
            find out. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Batman: The jelly bean jar 
            that Joker had was 
            from the Jolly 
            Jack Candy 
            Factory. 
            That's got to be 
            where's he's set 
            up his 
            headquarters.

    Terry: Bruce, can you 
           hear me? 
           I've located 
           Joker's hideout. 
    
    Bruce: Be careful, Terry. 
           He'll have plenty
           of deadly traps 
           set for you. 
    
    Terry: I know, but I 
           can't let him set 
           fire to the city. 
           I'm going in. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokerz#1: Does Joker have 
              full control of 
              the satellite? 
    
    Jokerz#2: He's working on 
              it. 
              The Computer he 
              built is amazing. 
    
    Jokerz#1: Yeah, and 
              Batman'll never 
              get deep enough 
              into the factory 
              to stop him. 
              Ha ha ha. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Chucko: Leave Batman to 
            me. 
            You'll only slow 
            me down. 
    
    Jokerz: Okay, Chucko, he's 
            all yours. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Jokarz#1: Batman is coming 
              this way! 
              How's the 
              Satellite coming? 
    
    Jokerz#2: No problem. 
              Gotham City's 
              goose is almost 
              cooked! 
    
    Jokerz#1: The police are 
              surrounding the 
              factory! 
    
    Jokerz#2: Don't worry. 
              The boss has 
              things under 
              control. 
              They'll never 
              reach us! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Joker: Ha ha ha! 
           Now I control the 
           satellite. 
           There's no need 
           for Mr. Tim Drake 
           anymore! 
    
    Tim: Wh-What are you 
         doing? 
         Ughnnnnnn... 
    
    Joker: Now the fun 
           begins! 
           Ha ha ha ha! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Batman: Drake! 
            where's the Joker? 
    
    Tim: Joker? 
         What are you 
         talking about? 
    
    Batman: Snap out of it, 
            Drake! 
    
    Tim: Drake? Joker? 
         ...Oh no... 
    
    Batman: Drake, YOU'RE the 
            Joker? 
    
    Joker: Not quite, Batman! 
           I'm here in his 
           brain and he 
           doesn't even know 
           it! 
           Utilizing 
           top-of-the-line 
           genetics 
           technology, 
           I encoded my DNA 
           on a microchip and 
           set it into Tim 
           Drake's brain 
           forty years ago. 
           It took decades to 
           rewrite his 
           cellular makeup, 
           but now Mr. Drake 
           is Mr. J! 
           An my comeback 
           party is going to 
           set the town on 
           fire, Batfake! 
           Do you think 
           you're BatMAN 
           enough to stop me?

    Barbara: The laser beam has 
             stopped! 
             Go! Go! Storm the 
             factory! 
    
    *****************************
    
    Tim: The nightly news 
         reported that I 
         was hurt helping 
         to put an end to 
         the Joker's plan. 
         And that both 
         Joker and Batman 
         have disappeared. 
         But you and I know 
         the truth, Barbara. 
    
    Barbara: It'll remain our 
             little secret, 
             Tim. 
             No one but the 
             team will know. 
    
    Tim: Terry, I owe you 
         big-time. 
         Bruce couldn't 
         have chosen anyone 
         better to put on 
         the mask. 
    
    Terry: Coming from you 
           that means a lot. 
    
    *****************************
    
    Terry: Hey, what are you 
           doing here? 
    
    Bruce: It's where I 
           should be. 
           You saved 
           something precious 
           to me, Terry. 
           Thank you. 
    
    Terry: What can I say? 
           Being Batman gives 
           me a chance to 
           make a difference. 
    
    Bruce: It's not being 
           Batman that makes 
           you worthwhile, 
           Terry. 
           It's the other way 
           around. 
           Never tell 
           yourself anything 
           different.

    Bruce: Hello, Tim. 
    
    Tim: Hi, old man.
