[Superman, disguised as Batman, sneaks into Wayne Industries with Robin after a meeting with Commissioner Gordon] Robin: So how'd you do Batman's voice? Superman: [as Batman] Precise muscle control. Superman: [as Robin] Plus, I have a pretty good ear. Robin: [angrily] Don't do that again. [trying to evade Superman by riding her rocket into a tunnel, Roxy Rocket finds him waiting for her at the other end] Roxy Rocket: [admiringly] What-a-body. Superman: It'll hurt you a lot more than me. Roxy Rocket: I'll risk it! Will you? Superman: So you're the famous Roxy Rocket. Roxanne Sutton: You're as smart as you are handsome. Superman: I didn't think you were foolish enough to make trouble in my town. Roxanne Sutton: Well, with Batman missing, the other crooks in Gotham are picking the city clean. I thought I'd try my luck here. Superman: Back up. What do you mean, "Batman missing?" Roxanne Sutton: I thought you'd know. Don't all you spandex boys have club meetings or something? Superman: We're not exactly friends. Roxanne Sutton: Aw. I'll be your friend. [Thieves smash through the display case to grab diamonds] Diamond Thief #1: What about the alarm? Diamond Thief #2: The cops are swamped, and the Bat's a no-show. Who's gonna come? [baseball hits him in the gut] Oof! Robin: [perched on a baseball display nearby] There's always the relief pitcher. Diamond Thief #2: Smoke 'im! [Robin successfully brings down the second of two armed thieves in front of a truck] Robin: Batman, Schmatman, I got this down! [Truck door opens to reveal two more crooks with guns drawn] Or not. Superman: So you're handling the whole city *yourself*? During a crime spree? Robin: [notices Bat-signal in the sky] Oh, not again! It gets worse every time he doesn't show. Superman: Then this time, he will. [after Superman, disguised as Batman, meets with Commissioner Gordon, a policewoman turns to Gordon] Policewoman: Does he look bigger to you? [Robin creates a false alarm to distract the guards so that he and Superman, disguised as Batman, can sneak into Wayne Industries] Robin: C'mon! Superman: All this sneaking around isn't exactly my style. Robin: What do you mean? It's half the fun! Robin: [to Superman, pointing to a video image of Bruce Wayne] See what I mean about him acting strange? He's *smiling*! Bane: By combining our talents, we will rule Gotham City. Anyone we wish to imprison, you, Riddler, will entrap. Any from whom we require allegiance, you, Hatter, will control. And any that stand in our way, I will break! The Riddler: I've always wanted to team muscle with my mind, and any chance to test my new puzzles, of course. Bane: [to Mad Hatter] And you, my friend. Are you in? The Mad Hatter: Tweedle-Bane, and Tweedle-Brain? If it's all the same, I'll play your game. [Robin and Superman, disguised as Batman, burst in on Bane, Riddler, and Mad Hatter] Robin: Sorry to bust in, but we couldn't WAIT to spoil your fun! Bane: On the contrary. I feared you were gone forever, Batman. And that would have meant I'd never feel your spine crumble in my hands. [activates Venom injection gauntlet, increasing his muscle mass and strength] [Bane, Riddler, and Mad Hatter are surprised by Batman's sudden display of incredible strength, unaware he's Superman in disguise] Robin: He's been working out. The Mad Hatter: [examining mind-controlling nanites under a microscope] I'll tell thee everything I can; there's little to relate. These little fishers, I perceive, may have no earthly mate. Superman: [disguised as Batman] "No earthly mate?" Robin: The bugs aren't yours? The Mad Hatter: Mine, no! I'd be proud if they were. I've stolen from the best: WayneTech, LexCorp, S.T.A.R. Labs. This circuitry is far more advanced than anything I've ever seen. I daresay it may even be of ALIEN origin. Robin: [referring to Batman] He's really being controlled by aliens? [makes face] Ugh! Superman: I'm deeply hurt. Robin: Sorry. [Robin and Superman, disguised as Batman, trace a sound Superman heard on the video e-mail to Wayne Aerospace] Robin: You DO have a good ear. This site was supposed to be mothballed. [notices gun turret on rocketship] That looks friendly. Superman: Actually, it looks... Kryptonian. Bruce Wayne: Everybody's gone. We're alone. [Brainiac emerges from another room] Brainiac: Well done, Mr. Wayne. [Superman, disguised as Batman, is watching from hiding] Superman: Brainiac... Superman: [referring to Batman] Where's your boss? Robin: Around... Superman: Okay, let's try this another way... where's *Bruce*? [Superman, disguised as Batman, and Robin meet with Comissioner Gordon, who tells them about a heist] Commissioner James Gordon: We've got a photo. [he hands it to Superman, who studies it without recognition] Robin: [whispering] Bane! Superman: [feigning recognition] Ah, yes. Bane. [after meeting with Comissioner Gordon, Superman, disguised as Batman, and Robin walk to the edge of the roof] Robin: That was close. [pulls out his grapple gun] Superman: You're telling me. The sooner we find your boss, the better. [Superman gropes through Batman's utility belt, searching for his grapple gun] Robin: Right side. [They fire their grapple lines and swing away] [last lines] Bruce Wayne: I heard the city's been busy. Superman: Nothing the kid couldn't handle. I've got to say, for a guy who's supposed to be such a loner, you sure know how to pick a partner.
