*                 Opening                  *
********************************************
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'!

********************************************
*                 Level 1                  *
********************************************
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. 

********************************************
*                 Level 3                  *
********************************************
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.
