When the Riddler first creates his virtual chessboard, it has seven rows and at least ten files, rather than the normal eight and eight. Even after the board is fixed to contain the normal amount of squares, while the white king and queen are positioned correctly (the white queen should be on the player's left), the board is not. Each player's back row should start with a black square on the left and end with a white square on the right. See more »
[trying to solve the Riddler's puzzle involving four quarters and a penny]
Sense, red cents... copper.
'Copper' is another term for policeman.
[looks at the tops of the coins]
And four quarters and one penny equal 101 cents.

Edward Nygma (Enigma) is back, a.k.a. "The Riddler," and this time he's disabled computers so that all trace of him will be gone; all his police records, driver's license, birth certificates, etc. He wants no trace left that he ever existed.
Along the way, he gives numerical clues to what he's doing.
It turns out to be a "virtual reality" trap to get Batman, with the lure being Commissioner Gordon who is trapped inside and who's heart is 15 minutes away from expiring, thanks to the "virtual reality" experience he's having. Batman will have to go into cyberspace to save Gordon!
This probably looked a lot cooler back in the early '90s when "virtual reality" and other computer advances were new and exciting. By now, it's old....but that didn't make the episode any less; it was still interesting, even if dated a bit.
John Glover guest-stars as the voice of "The Riddler."
