Bruce and Terry watch "Batman: the Musical". All the actors on the stage (Batman, Gordon, the Joker, the Penguin, etc) played by the same voice actors as they were in "The Batman/Superman Adventures". The second song of the musical is taken from a 1939 Batman comic book where Batman says to Gordon, "Criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot..." See more »


Ra's Al Ghul: But now this youthful form has served its purpose. It is time for me to move on to a new body: yours.
Bruce Wayne: [sarcastic] Sure, Ra's, why not? Anything to hold off the Grim Reaper another few seconds.
Bruce Wayne: I take it back. You don't cheat death, you whimper in fear of it.
Ra's Al Ghul: [backhands him] Silence!
Bruce Wayne: And you hit like a girl.

Probably, the best episode in the show's entire run
11 April 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

"Out of the Past" begins with a brilliant, albeit brief, of the Batman myth, told in an off-beat musical, attended by the real but old Batman/Bruce Wayne (Kevin Conroy) and the new one/Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle). Smart dialog between the characters as they watch the musical is a treat for the ears, as well as is the lighthearted musical number.

Following that opening, the main story begins wherein Talia (Oliva Hussey), the daughter of Batman's longtime nemesis Ra's Al Ghul (David Warner), appears with a proposition that the elder Wayne can't refuse. Without revealing much, it's safe to say that it involves some rejuvenation.

However, there is a startling "revelation" that brings about the installment's most memorable line.

As always, Conroy is the definitive Bat "voice" and the rest of the cast - including Michael Rosenbaum, Adrienne Barbeau, and regular Cree Summer - is equally impressive.
