Batman & Robin (1997) Script

I want a car.

Chicks dig the car.

This is why Superman works alone.

Do try and bring this one back in one piece, sir!


Don't wait up, Al.

I'll canceI the pizzas.

Batman, a new villain has commandeered the Gotham Museum.

He's frozen the antiquities wing.

He's turned the security guards into ice.

He's calling himself, "Mr. Freeze. "

Mr. Freeze.


Stop! Drop your weapon...

...or we'll shoot!

The Iceman Cometh.

Please, show some mercy.

Mercy?!

I'm afraid that my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy.

In this universe...

...there's only one absolute.

Everything...

...freezes.

Hi, Freeze.

I'm Batman.

You're not sending me to the cooler.

Nice catch.

You break it, you buy it.

Grab the gem! Kill the heroes!

Kill them! Kill them!

Destroy everything!

It's the hockey team from hell.


Get the ice...

...I'll get the Iceman.


Thanks.

Sweet.

I got mine.

Where's yours?

What killed the dinosaurs?

The Ice Age!


Hit me, boys.

Thanks for playing.


I was hoping you'd drop in.


Watch the numbers...

...for they are the harbingers of your doom.

Can you feeI it coming?

The icy cold of space.

At 30,000 feet, your heart will freeze...

...and beat no more.

After you're frozen, your icy tomb will plummet back to Gotham.

Freeze, you're mad.

This capsule explodes, it'll slaughter thousands.

Freeze well.


Who invited you? I was hanging around.

I thought you'd stay in the museum, round up some thugs.

How about, "Nice to see you. Thanks for saving my life. "

A Batbomb?

We must blow this up before it turns Gotham into a crater.

Now what, call a taxi?!

Watch the first step!

Surf's up!


Gotcha!

Cowabunga!

He's freezing the furnace!


I got him.

Stay cooI...

...Birdboy.

Can you be cold? You have 11 minutes to thaw the bird.

Will you chase the villain...

...or save him?

Emotion makes you weak.

That's why this day is mine.

I'll kill you next time!


Did we get him?

Drats!

My experiment to mate the orchid and the rattlesnake has failed again...

...but I still have hope for the animaI-plant crossbreedings.

If I can only find the right dose of venom...

...these plants will be able to fight back, like animals.

I will have given flora...

...a chance against the thoughtless ravages of man.

PersonaI note:

My work would proceed faster...

...if Dr. Woodrue didn't whisk my venom samples...

...back to his mysterious Gilgamesh Wing.

Why won't he let me in the lab?

What is he doing in there?

Ladies and gentlemen of the un-United Nations...

...and...

...our mystery bidder...

...may I present...

...Antonio Diego...

...seriaI murderer, serving life...

...in prison...

...and sole surviving...

...volunteer.

And what a charmer he is.

By merely drilling three concentric holes directly...

...into Antonio's craniaI cavity... I have...

...created viaducts into the most primitive part of his brain...

...the limbic system.

And now I add...

...my Super-Soldier Serum...

...code-named...

..."Venom"...

...to which I add my very own recipe of steroids...

...and toxins.

Plug him in.

Time to scream.


Genius!

Behold...

...the ideaI killing machine!

I call this little number...

..."Bane. "

Bane of Humanity!

Imagine it.

Your own private army made up of thousands of these super-soldiers.

Bidding begins at a mere...

...10 million!

Turbo!

Show off for Daddy.


Dr. Isley.

Welcome to my parlor.

What?

You monster!

How could you?!

Our originaI sponsor had no stomach for military applications.

He cut the funding for our work.

Without your research...

...I couldn't have come this far.

Join me.

The two of us, entwined, side by side.

Join you?

I have spent my life trying to protect plants from extinction...

...and now you...

...corrupt my research...

...into some maniacaI scheme for world domination.

When I get through...

...you won't be able to get a job teaching high schooI chemistry.

Do you hear me?!

You psycho!

Well...

...I can respect your opinion.

Sadly, I'm not good at rejection.

I'm afraid you'll have to die.


Let the poisons and toxins burn a grave for you...

...deep into the earth you love so much!

Bye-bye, dear!

Fellow maniacs...

...bidding...

...begins!

Gotham University Labs security video, 2 years ago.

Dr. Victor Fries...

...2-time Olympic decathlete and NobeI Prize winner for molecular biology.

After his wife contracted a rare disease...

...Macgregor's Syndrome...

...he hoped to freeze her in a cryogenic sleep untiI he could find a cure.

Now, here's where everything goes north.

That's got to hurt.

That liquid is 50 below.

But, he survived somehow.

The cryo-solution mutated his body.

What happened to his wife? No one knows.

She's presumed dead.

Freeze needs extreme cold to survive.

His cryo-suit uses diamond-enhanced lasers to keep him at zero degrees.

If it's ice the Iceman wants...

Coming, sir.

Yes, sir?

We need the Wayne diamonds.

We going to trap a snowman?

Yes, right after you spend 10 hours in the simulator, training.

I made a mistake. I'm sorry. It won't happen again.

You were reckless and almost got killed.

I'm fine! See! Me, here, alive!

How we supposed to work together if you won't trust me?

How indeed?

He's overeager, he's impulsive.

I can't trust him not to get hurt.

Perhaps the truth is you really don't trust anyone.

Don't tell me you're on his side again.

Despite all your talents...

...you're still just a novice in the ways of family.

Master Dick...

...follows the same star as you...

...but gets there by his own course.

You must learn to trust him, for that is the nature of family.

I trust you, Alfred.

But I shan't be here forever.

Good night, Master Bruce.

Good night, Alfred.


Oh, dear, Master Bruce.

Good gracious, what a tumble.

There's a brave boy.

Yes, sir.

I am so pleased you won the bidding, Your Supreme Ruthlessness.

We're making the finaI modifications on Bane right now.

We'll have a flawless super-soldier out to you tomorrow by overnight maiI.


Dr. Isley?

Pamela?

You look great.

Especially for a dead woman.

Hello, Jason.

I think I've had a change of heart.

Or quite...

...literally...

...the animaI-plant toxins had a rather unique effect on me.

They replaced my blood with aloe...

...my skin with chlorophyll...

...and filled...

...my lips...

...with venom.

And, Jason, one other thing.

I probably should have mentioned this earlier...

...I'm...

...poison.

It's a jungle in here.

I am Nature's arm...

...her spirit...

...her will!

Hell, I am Mother Nature.

And the time has come...

...for plants to take back...

...the world so rightfully ours...

...because it's not nice...

...to fooI with Mother Nature.

"Wayne Enterprises. "

Coming, Bane, darling.

We've got a plane to catch.

I'm Mr. Icicle I'm Mr. Ten Below Sing! Sing!

Come on, sing!

Louder! Come on!

Sing! Sing! Sing!

He's Mr. White Christmas Louder!

He's Mr. Icicle Freezy...

...I'm feeling hot.

I find that unlikely.

So my hair is brittle and my skin is dry...

...I'd weather blizzards to have you.

You're the most perfect man I've ever known.

Let's heat things up.

My passion thaws for my bride alone.

Talk about your cold shoulder.

Frosty!

Yeah, boss?

Energy.

Battling the Bat exhausted my power.

But...

...I was successfuI nevertheless.

Absolutely, boss.

One more giant diamond of this size...

...and my freezing engine will be complete.

I will freeze the city.

Then I will hold Gotham ransom.

Unless the city bows to my demands...

...it's winter forever in Gotham.

The city fathers will have no choice...

...but to give me the billions I need to complete my research...

...so I can find a cure.

Leave us.

Sure, boss.

We need quality time.

Soon we will be together once more.

Soon.


I'll get it.

I must've dozed off. My sincerest apologies.

No apology necessary.

It's the first time it's happened in thirty years.

Please be looking for me.

Actually, I'm looking for Alfred Pennyworth.

Uncle Alfred!

My dear.

Oh, my dear...

...what a most wonderfuI surprise.

How did you manage to come here all the way from England?

My dear, you are so kind to your old uncle.

Uncle?

Barbara is the daughter of my dear sister Margaret.

Both my parents were killed in a car accident 5 years ago.

Uncle Alfred's been supporting me ever since.

You have? Secrets, Al?

Secrets are a virtuaI prerequisite in this house.

Don't you think, sir?

I'm on break from-

Oxbridge Academy, Alfred's alma mater.

The new computer sciences division.

How'd you know? Says so on the patch on your sweater.

What is it? It's beautifuI. You can say that again.

It's a competition racer. I've been fixing it up.

I'll show you how to ride it.

You certainly will not!

Don't worry, Uncle Alfred. I'm terrified of these things.

Barbara, I hope you'll stay with us.

Oh, I don't know.

All this luxury really isn't my style, but...

...yeah, I'd love to.

Then it's settled.

But, sir, we...

...we do get so busy here.

Don't be silly.

After all, she's family.

Uncle Alfred?

I came to tuck you in.

You came to tuck me in?

That's quite a switch.

What're you working on?

I'm trying to find my brother, your Uncle Wilfred.

He's first butler to the Maharajah of Miranjapore.

But Miranjapore is a floating court.

It travels through India.

I remember Mom getting postcards.

So Wilfred can be rather difficult to find.

I don't suppose they have fax machines on elephants.

I've been trying to reach him with no success.

When one grows ancient, one yearns for family.

I have the same picture of Mom by my bed.

Peg?

My nickname for sweet Margaret.

It's good to see you again.

I've missed you.

As I have you.

Sleep well, child.

You sleep.

Go to bed.


Good morning, Gotham.

It's Gossip Gerty reporting to you direct from the Gotham Observatory...

...where billionaire Bruce Wayne, chairman of Wayne Enterprises...

...is about to make yet another legendary contribution to the city.

Gotham Observatory, Bane.

And step on it.

Step.

My father told me, "To succeed, we need only pick a star and follow it. "

So Wayne Enterprises is donating the world's most advanced telescope...

...to Gotham's Observatory Restoration Project.

With any luck...

...this telescope will give future generations a chance...

...to follow their own stars.

Brucy...

...is it true that this new telescope can see around the globe?

Yes. If you'll watch these monitors right here.

Satellites in orbit allow us to reflect light from anywhere on the planet.

From here, we'll be able to see the sky anywhere on Earth...

...and through this intricate network of satellites...

...reflect it back to our very own Gotham City for observation.

Just don't point it at my bedroom.

Brucy, you and the exquisite Julie Madison...

...have been going out forever.

Are you going to tie the knot?

Marriage?

Marriage?

You want to give me a hand here?

Bruce and I are recklessly in love.

And that's most certainly enough for us... for now.

If you will follow me, I'll show you the centraI controI grid.

You're a lot of help.

Miss, you need to stop.

Move, fascist bulldog!

You need an appointment- No, I don't!

Miss, you're not authorized to be up here.

She has no pass, sir.

Little overly protective, but you won't hurt me, Miss-?

Dr. Pamela Isley.

Doctor...

...what can I do for you?

Actually, I already work for you, or did.

Your arboreaI preservation project in South America.

We cut our funding. There was a conflict of ideologies.

Dr. Woodrue was a lunatic.

I see you knew him.

Yes. That lab burnt down last week. I'm glad you escaped.

I have here a proposaI showing how Wayne Enterprises can immediately...

...cease all actions that toxify our environment.

Forget the stars, look here at the earth...

...our mother, our womb.

She deserves your loyalty and protection.

And yet, you spoiI her lands...

...poison her oceans...

...blacken her skies!

You're killing her!

Your intentions are noble, but no dieseI fueI for heat...

...no coolants to preserve food, millions of people would die.

Acceptable losses in the battle to save the planet.

People come first, Dr. Isley.

Mammals!

A day of reckoning is coming.

That's right.

The same plants and flowers that saw you...

...crawI from the primordiaI soup...

...will reclaim this planet and there will be no one to protect you!

You must be new in town.

In Gotham City...

...Batman and Robin protect us...

...even from plants and flowers.

Maybe you'd like to meet them.

Caped crusaders are going to help us auction...

...a diamond to raise money for our botanicaI gardens.

Just a few mammals doing what we can for the world's plants.

Thank you all for coming.

Good day, Doctor.

Batman and Robin...

...militant arm of the warm-blooded oppressors...

...animaI protectors of the status quo.

First...

...I'll rid myself of the fur and feathered pests.

And then Gotham...

...will be mine...

...for the greening.


Excuse me, chief.

I got something here you might want to see.

I hate when people talk during the movie.

One more diamond, my love.

One more.

"Bruce Wayne. Diamonds. "

Very nice.


Ladies and gentlemen...

...Gossip Gerty of "Good Morning Gotham" and I...

...welcome you to the gem of the evening.

Our own Commissioner Gordon...

...displaying...

...the famed Heart of Isis, on loan...

...from the collection of my close personaI friend, Bruce Wayne.

Think Freeze will take the bait?

He'll be here.

...to dance with one of our fabulous flowers...

...the famed diamond draped around her neck.

Let's start the bidding!

I'll give 10,000 for the orchid!

20,000 for the tiger lily!

And I bid...

...30,000 dollars for the lovely magnolia!

Boys, please...

...let's show some gusto!


Hi, there.

And you are?

Poison...

...Poison Ivy.

Why not send junior home early?

I've got some wild oats to sow.

On the other hand...

...youth does have its advantages.

Endurance, stamina.

Forget the geriatric Bat.

Come, join me.

My garden needs tending.

I'll take it from here, paI.

Wouldn't you like the earrings too?

Some lucky boy's about to hit the honey pot.

I'll include an evening of my company for the winner.

I'll bring everything you see here...

...plus everything you don't.

I bid 50,000 dollars for Poison Ivy!

100,000!

And I'll bid...

...500,000 dollars!

One million dollars.

-2 million. You don't have it. 3 million.

I'll borrow it from you. Four.

5 million.

That's a utility belt, not a money belt.

6 million.

7 million.

Never leave the cave without it.

You boys aren't going to start fighting over little old me, now are you?

All right, everyone! Chill.

Chill.

Get the gun!


Look at you!

Let me guess.

Plant GirI?

Vine Lady?

Hand over the diamond, Garden GaI...

...or I'll turn you into mulch.

Pheromone dust...

...designed to heat...

...a man's blood.

Doesn't work on the cold-hearted. If you please!

If you insist.

Clever little clover.

That's my exit cue.

Thanks.

Good night.

CooI party!


Commissioner, you have 11 minutes to thaw these people.

Miss Ivy, you've just met one of the most sinister men in Gotham.

That's not a man...

...that is a god.

Enough monkey business.

We've got work to do.

Monkey work.


You can't make the jump.

I can!

Pull back!

I can make it!

Redbird controI codes.

Disable engine.

Don't do it to me!

We won't make it!


It's a cold town.


I could've made that jump.

You could've splattered your brains on the building's side.

The Flying Graysons were a team.

We had to trust each to do his job.

That's what being partners is about.

Counting on someone is the way to win.

Your head wasn't on the job. It was on Poison Ivy.

Maybe she wanted me instead of you.

That's your idea of friendship?

It's your rules. It's your way, or the highway.

It's Batman and Robin, not Robin and Batman.

I'm sick of it! Yes, it's my rules that keep us alive.

If you want to stay in this house, on this team, you'll abide by them.

This is no partnership.

You're never going to trust me!

Dear brother Wilfred...

...I have tried every address I know for you.

I'm just praying this reaches you.

We have very little time.

Batman monopolized the evening news.

Congratulations on your apprehension of Mr. Freeze.

Thanks. Thank you.

Is there something wrong, sir?

Am I pig-headed?

Is it always...

...my way or the highway?

Why, yes. Actually.

Death and chance stole your parents...

...but rather than become a victim...

...you have done everything in your power to controI the fates.

For what is Batman...

...if not an effort to master the chaos that sweeps our world?

An attempt to controI...

...death itself?

But I can't, can I?

None of us can.


Sorry. So sorry!

Teach you that at Oxbridge?

Just a few judo lessons. You know, London's kind of rough.

I suppose you had a minor in motorbikes also?

Couldn't resist.

It's just so beautifuI.

I just took it out for a spin. I'll clean it tomorrow.

All right?

Sorry.

Sorry. Good night.


Drag him into the cold beam.

Welcome home, Frost Face.

You're the common cold, and we are the cure.

Allow me to break the ice.

My name is Freeze.

Learn it well...

...for it's the chilling sound of your doom.

All right, Freezie, you can't live outside the cold zone.

Look at him stew.

Get used to it.

You're going to be here a very long...

...long time.

Sadly...

...you will not live to see it.

Batface and Birdbrain turned out to be much more resistant...

...to my love dust than expected.

No matter. Next time I'll just give them a stronger dose.

They'll literally be dying for me.

"Turkish baths. "

This looks promising.


A fixer-upper.

But with a certain homey charm.

A minus!

Current tenants.

Hello, my little pretty, pretty, pretty.

Hello, yourself.

You look good enough to eat.

That I am.

Come and get me, if you can.

With pleasure.


Let's redecorate.

I've always hankered for something on the water.

What is this floor?

It took God seven days...

...to create Paradise.

Let's see if I can do better.

Good babies.

Grow for mommy.

Bane, darling...

...I found a fellow who strikes my fancy.

A cooI customer, yes.

Icy demeanor...

...no question.

But I detect a certain ruthless charm I may be able to use...

...to my advantage.

Honey, clean up this mess.

We've got company coming.

Honey.

Company.

We've been going out for over a year now, and...

Okay, here it goes.

I want to spend my life with you.

I'm not the marrying kind.

There are things about me you wouldn't understand.

I know you're a dedicated bachelor.

You've had your wild nights.

"Wild" doesn't...

...quite cover it.

You'll make someone a good husband one day...

...but I can't wait forever.

Look, I don't want to pressure you. Because if I do...

...you'll just shut down.

I know the way you are.

Think about it.

Just promise me you'll think about it.

Okay?

You don't have to answer now.

Just...

...think it over.

Here's food for thought.

Who's Ivy?

You just called me "Ivy. "

Who's Ivy?

I wish I knew.

Enhance detaiI, 14 to 19.

Who are you?

Gotcha!


Banker, how much coin to play?

21/2.

You're the chick who won the tunneI run 2 nights ago!

That'd be me.

That was kid stuff, sweetheart.

Why don't you take your tricycle and run home?

Want a side bet? How much?

How much you got? How much you got?

All right, let's race! Come on!

Just make sure the guys are ready at the end of the bridge.

You got it, Spike!


Out of my way, losers!

Nice try, girlie!

You're next!

Excuse me!

Look out, baby!

Not bad, for a chick!


Now!

End of the line, sweetheart!


So this is where you hang out.

How long you been racing?

Since my parents died.

I guess all the speed and danger helped take me out of myself.

Made the pain go away.

You wouldn't understand.

You'd be surprised.

Street racing isn't exactly an acceptable major at Oxbridge so...

...they kicked me out.

But I've already won the money I need to do what I've always dreamed.

Don't say you want to join the circus.

Alfred has supported me my whole life and I'm going to pay him back.

I'll take him away from this dismaI life of servitude.

What are you talking about?

Listen, this whole master-servant thing...

...it's really ridiculous.

Alfred is a sweet, noble man...

...and he's subjugated all his life and dreams to someone else.

Alfred and Bruce are like family.

Paying someone to prepare your meals...

...do laundry, clean dishes, you call that family?

Alfred's happy.

Happy?

You honestly don't know, do you?

How he's hiding the pain all the time.

Alfred's sick.

Alfred's not sick.

He's dying.

Dying?

Why didn't he tell us?

You know Alfred, he'd never say anything.

But I can tell.

I can't believe it.

I know.


Icehead, you got a visitor.

Your sister is here to see you.

Sister?

Brother, dear...

...I heard you were blue.

Don't mind us, ma'am.

You can speak freely.

I don't mind you at all.

Men...

...the most absurd of God's creatures.

We give you life...

...and we can take it away just as easily.

Right! Whatever.

I really am to die for.


Impressive!

Well, I, my most unabominable snowman...

...have been impressed by you.

In fact...

...I propose a pairing.

I've come to set you free.

An enticing offer...

...but...

...what does the lady want in return?

Let's cooI it for now. I've got someone I want you to meet.

His name is Bane.

A laundry service that delivers! Wow!

What are you, about a 50, big and tall?

No, I always go a size smaller. Makes me look slimmer.

I'm running on empty.

I need the diamonds.

I'll help you grab your rocks.

Bane...

...dear...

...an exit, please.

Reinforced steeI.

Not good.

Always winterize your pipes.

While I get my diamonds, you and "meatloaf" retrieve my wife.

You never mentioned a wife!

Come on.

I hope Mr. Bane can swim.

Alfred, are you well?

As well as can be expected, sir.

My friend, I know you're sick.

I can get you the best doctors.

I have seen the best doctors.

A gentleman does not discuss his ailments. It is not civilized.

I hope that I have taught you at least that much, Master Bruce.

Have you ever...

...regretted your life working here?

Looking after heroes?

No, sir.

My only regret is that I was never able to be out there with you.

Not all the heroes wear masks.

Freeze has escaped!

We got this off the Arkham surveillance camera.

Poison Ivy.

2 nights ago...

...Gotham Airport, these two arrive by charter from South America.

They put 10 security guards in the hospitaI...

...left a businessman dead from organic poisoning, stole his limousine.

This is definitely the same pair that sprang Freeze.

Excuse me, gentlemen.

Poison Ivy... why would she help Freeze?

She's definitely eviI.

She was all I could think about, like I was in love-

I know, then the feeling vanished.

I can't believe we fought over a bad guy.

Bad, yes. Guy, no.

Well, I'm totally over her.

Me too. Definitely.

Great stems, though. Buds too.

Those are nice.

Here we go.

It's Nora Fries.

She's still alive.

He adapted his freezing technology to reverse the disease.

He found a cure for the disease in some stages.

There she is.

Get the diamonds. I'll rescue the bride.

We'll meet back at my place.

In my weakened condition, I'm no match for the Bat and Bird.

You leave those boys to me.

Go!

Can he save her? Her case is too advanced.

But maybe someday...

...with more research...

Poison Ivy.

I hate uninvited guests.

My lungs are freezing!

Chilled...

...to perfection.

No beauty.

Just the beast.

Hey, there, pretty birdie.

Give yourself up. If you surrender-

To you?

Polly want a kiss?

There's something about an anatomically correct...

...rubber suit that puts fire in a girI's lips.

Why are all the gorgeous ones homicidaI maniacs? Is it me?

Enough...

...sweet talk.

First you'll tell me where Freeze is, then you're going to jaiI.

I'm a lover, not a fighter.

That's why every Poison Ivy Action Figure comes with him!

Try not to make a mess when you die.


Hold it right there!


Stop!

Living in the shadow of the big, bad Bat.

You don't need him.

You're the star.

I can see it now:

Your own big, bright signaI in the sky.

Let me guide you.

Let me kiss you.

Stop! Don't kiss her.

The victim at the airport, toxins introduced orally.

What are you saying? Why does she want to kiss us?

I bet her lips are poisoned. Poisoned kiss?

You have issues with women!

You can't stand that she'd kiss me and not you.

Something would be mine, not yours.

Exit, Bane.

Exit!

Ivy's right. I don't need your help.

I'm going solo!

What happened?

How'd they get away?

I've never been good with competition.

Who needs a frigid wife anyway?


Make yourself right at home.

Where's my wife?

There was nothing I could do. Batman deactivated her.

She's dead. You lie!


I'm sorry.

Their bones will turn to ice!

Their blood will freeze in my hands!

Kill them, of course.

But why stop there?

Why should only Batman and Robin die...

...while the society that created them goes unpunished?

Yes!

If I must suffer...

...humanity will suffer with me!

I shall repay them for sentencing me to a life without human comfort.

I will blanket the city in endless winter!

First...

...Gotham.

And then...

...the world!

Just what I had in mind.

Everything dead on Earth except us.

A chance for...

...Mother Nature to start again.

Behold...

...the dawn of a new age.

My mutant plants have the strength of the deadliest animals.

Once you have frozen mankind, these babies will overrun the globe.

And we shall rule them.

For we will be...

...the only two people left in the world.

Yes.

Adam...

...and EviI.

You distract the Bat and Bird...

...while I prepare...

...to freeze...

...Gotham!

It's Stage 1 of Macgregor's Syndrome.

I'm sorry.

All we can do is make him comfortable.

Thank you, Doctor.

Macgregor's Syndrome is what Fries' wife had.

Alfred's condition is less severe. Fries' research said...

...he cured a case like it, just didn't say how.

No one else is even close.

I'm late for the dedication, then I go after Freeze and Ivy alone.

Like hell you do. Don't push me right now.

Or what? No one can capture Ivy but the big, bad Bat?

Right.

You want her for yourself.

I want her so badly, I can taste it. That's the whole point.

She's done something to us. She has us fighting over her somehow.

I know she loves me and not you, and it's driving you crazy.

That's why you stopped us from kissing.

You're not thinking straight. But I am.

For the first time in a long time.

I want a Robin signaI in the sky, all right?

I'm tired of living in your shadow.

All that ends now.

I'm sorry, Uncle.

I was too late.

You must do something for me.

Find my brother, Wilfred...

...your uncle, wherever he is, and give him...

...this.

I have duties that he must fulfill in my stead.

Only family can be trusted.

What is it?

It is a sacred trust of two good men...

...whom I have the honor of calling "son. "

Take it to Wilfred...

...and I implore you...

...never open it.

You look so like your mother.

Bonsoir, glamorous Gothamites.

Everyone who's anyone...

...has flocked to the observatory...

...and tonight's star-studded dedication of the new telescope.

And here's the man of the hour himself...

...Bruce Wayne.

Excuse me.

Commissioner.

How are you? Good. You know Julie?

How are you?

Good to see you.

Young man.

Lovely to see you again.

Thank you.

Commissioner Gordon...

...I've always wondered...

...where does that big, old Batlight come from?

Why...

...it's...

...on top of Police Headquarters.

I'd just...

...love to see it.

But you probably don't have access.

Why, dear lady...

...I am the police commissioner.

I have the keys right here in my pocket.

Would you like to see it?

Who are you, dear lady?

On second thought, you're way too old for me.

No, I'm not.

Please...

...come back.

What are you doing? Come on.

Show me how the satellites work.

First...

...I will turn Gotham into an icy graveyard...

...then...

...I will pull Batman's heart from his body...

...and feeI it freeze in my hands.

Revenge!

Quickly, Bane.

Quickly now.

Let there be light.

Only family can be trusted?

I'm family.

Access denied.

Access denied.


I spend my entire life trying to beat back death.

Everything I've done, everything I'm...

...capable of doing...

But I can't save you.

There's no defeat in death...

...Master Bruce.

Victory comes in defending...

...what we know is right...

...while we still live.


I love you, old man.

And I love you too.


Access denied.

This better be one hell of a secret.

Margaret.

Peg.

Access allowed.


The combined power of the telescope's reflecting crystals...

...will complete...

...my freezing engine.

No matter what they tell you, Mr. Bane...

...it is the size of your gun that counts.

Where are you going?

It's not a Batlight, it's a Robin signaI. Ivy's calling me.

Her name's Pamela Isley.

She must've stolen Gordon's keys and changed the signaI.

She did it for me, for love.

She infected us with pheromones.

I'm under some kind of magic spell?

She wants to kill you.

You'd say anything to keep her away from me.

To keep her for yourself.

You said being a team means trusting your partner.

Sometimes, counting on someone else is the only way to win. Remember?

You weren't talking about partners, but about being a family.

So I'm asking you...

...friend, partner...

...brother...

...will you trust me now?

All the crystals are in place. Thank you.

Hi!

I'm sorry about the door.

Is the party over?

Who is this nutball?


If revenge...

...is a dish best served cold...

...then put on your Sunday finest.

It's time...

...to feast!

Tonight...

...hell freezes over.


Intruder alert.

Intruder alert.

Intruder alert. Identify.

Uncle Alfred, it's me. Barbara.

I expected you might find your way down here, child.

I programmed my brain algorithms...

...into the Batcomputer...

...and created a virtual simulation.

I'd like to help Batman and Robin.

I anticipated you would...

...and took the liberty to create something in your size.

Suit me up, Uncle Alfred.


Hi there.

Is your thumb the only part of you that's green?

You will just have to find out.

I want us to be together, but...

...you must be serious about turning over a new leaf.

I need a sign...

How about "Slippery when wet. "

...of trust.

Tell me your plan.

Kiss me and I'll tell you.

Tell me and I'll kiss you.

Freeze has taken the new telescope and turned it into a giant freezing gun.

He's about to turn Gotham into an ice cube.

I've got to stop him.

One kiss...

...my love.

For luck.

Bad luck, I'm afraid.

Time to die, little Robin.

I hate to disappoint you, but...

...rubber lips are immune to your charms.

See you!

You're not the only one who can set a trap, Venus.

Sorry...

...my vines have a crush on you.

Got to go.

So many people to kill, so little time.

You're about to become compost.

Using feminine wiles to get what you want?

Trading on your looks?

Read a book.

That passive-aggressive number went out long ago.

You give women a bad name.


As I told Lady Fries, when I pulled her plug...

...this is a one-woman show.

I don't think so.


Curses!

Freeze is going to ice the city.

I know.

And you are?

BatgirI.

That's not P.C. What about Batperson or Batwoman?

Bruce, it's me, Barbara. I found the Batcave.

We must change the locks.

She knows who we are. We must kill her.

Later. We have work to do.

Let's kick some ice.


We have 11 minutes to thaw the city.


Gotcha!

Now!

Shield.


I'll finish off the city.

You kill the kids, but...

...leave me the Bat.


No sign of the snowman.

Maybe he melted.

No, he's just hibernating.

These heaters will thaw them.

I hope you've got 10 million more of those toys.

8 minutes and they're ice cubes forever.

Sunlight could reverse the freezing process.

Sunrise isn't for 5 hours.

Here.

It's morning in the Congo.

We'll relay sunlight-

From below the equator-

It'll take the satellites a minute to realign, but...

Damn!

Damn? Damn's not good.

Those targeting mirrors are frozen.

I realign, you thaw the mirrors.


Tonight's forecast:

A freeze is coming.

Bye-bye.

I got you!

No. I got you.

It's one of those days!


Dirty fighter!

The tube!

Yay, Batman!

Hey, Freeze.

The heat is on.

You all right down there?

Here goes.


Hang on.

You're doing it!

You've lost, Freeze.

I think not.

Bombs away, Batman.


Freeze in hell, Batman!


What should we do now?

Pray.

Hang on!

Grab on to my belt!

Thank you, Batman!

Need a ride?

Most of Gotham's still frozen. It's midnight.

Telescope's gone. There's no way to thaw the city.

The satellites could do it, but it'd take a computer genius.

I'm on it.

No, I'm on it.

Have to do it upside down.

Men! Everything the hard way.

You're pretty good at this, little girI.

Watch and learn, little boy.


They say it'll be a beautifuI day.

I'm taking you back to Arkham Asylum.

Go on.

Kill me too.

Just as you killed my wife.

I didn't kill your wife.

As I told Lady Fries when I pulled her plug...

...this is a one-woman show.

But she's not dead.

We found her, restored her.

She's still frozen alive...

...waiting for you to find a cure.

She lives?

But vengeance isn't power. Anyone can take a life.

But to give life...

...that's true power. A power you once had.

She's alive.

So I'm asking you.

Victor Fries...

...help me save another life.

Show me how to cure Macgregor's Syndrome Stage 1.

And maybe you can also save the life of the man your wife once loved.

He's still inside you, Victor.

Buried...

...deep beneath the snow.

Will you help me...

...Doctor?


Take 2 of these...

...and call me in the morning.

I'll have your wife moved to the lab at Arkham.

You'll be able to continue your research there.


All we can do now is wait...

...and hope.


He loves me.

He loves me not.

He loves me.

Not!

Surprise.

I'm your new cellmate.

And I've come to make your life a living hell.

Prepare...

...for a bitter harvest.

Winter...

...has come at last.


Are you...?

Rather disappointed at how poorly I have taught you proper housekeeping.

And quite well, it seems!

Thanks to you, son.

Thanks to you all.

Well done, Bruce.

You too. Well done.

I got one question.

When we fell off the telescope, why didn't you try and save us?

It's the first time I've fallen and you weren't there.

I figured you could handle it.

You know, sometimes counting on somebody else is the only way to win.

Excuse me.

I'm the one who kicked Ivy's botanicaI butt.

Yeah, that was me.

I did it all by myself.

That was me.

You are going back to schooI.

You'll never win this argument.

Partners?

Partners.

Partners.

We're going to need a bigger cave.
