Quotes

Batman: Just as I thought. The fear chemical is activated by adrenaline. So whenever you, or Brian, or any of the other athletes got agitated...

Robin: The stuff kicks in, turning our excitement to fear. But how long is this gonna last?

Batman: I'm afraid there's only one person who can answer that: the Professor of Fear himself, The Scarecrow.

Robin: No, it can't be. He's locked up in Arkham... isn't he?

Leon the Bookie: You've been winning a lot lately, Mr...?

The Scarecrow: [Confronting Leon the Bookie's lackey] Lost? You have that bewildered look... but your sort always does.

Leon's Lackey: I ain't lost. I'm looking for you! I wanna know how come you always win, Mr. "Lucky".

The Scarecrow: Here. You can read, can't you?

The Scarecrow: It's no joke, I assure you. It's the fear of victory, and the agony of...

Commissioner James Gordon: That's how we found him, scared as a rat in a cat convention. I've never seen anything like it.

Batman: You haven't been watching the sports channel.

Commissioner James Gordon: Sports? You mean those athletes. What's that got to do with...?

Batman: Put two and two together, Commissioner. That goon in there works for Leon "The Bookie". And word has it he's been taking it on the chin lately.

Commissioner James Gordon: You're telling me that that walking pile of straws scares the stuffing out of sports stars and then bets against their teams?

Batman: Exactly. A perfect way to scare up some quick cash for his sick schemes.

Nurse: [holding a tray] This is for Jonathan Crane.

Male Orderly: [snatches the tray] I got it! Hey, corn on the cob! A scarecrow's gotta love that! Heh heh heh!

[the nurse walks away. The orderly then dumps the food in the trash]

Batman: Has Professor Crane lost his appetite?

[the orderly turns to see Batman emerge from the shadows, Robin following shortly after]

Male Orderly: You're not supposed to be here!

Batman: But the Scarecrow is.

Male Orderly: What - What do you mean? He's in his cell.

Batman: I'd like to make sure of that.

Male Orderly: Take my word, I - I just saw him five minutes ago.

Batman: Then you won't mind if I pay him a visit.

[takes the keys from the orderly and goes to unlock the entrance to the high security area]

Male Orderly: [goes to grab Batman] NO! No, you can't do that! It's against the rules! You can't -

[Batman looks back at the orderly, who lets go. Batman then opens the door]

Batman: Stay with him, Robin.

Robin: F-fine with me!
