Truly excellent Batman and Robin Quotes from Batman the TV Series (1960s)

This had me just rolling with laughter. I saw this on franjie's posterous and just had to repost. What a bygone age it was on television when you could get away with totally awesome campy lines like this!

Robin: "You can't get away from Batman that easy!"
Batman: "Easily."
Robin: "Easily."
Batman: "Good grammar is essential, Robin."
Robin: "Thank you."
Batman: "You're welcome."

Batman: "Haven't you noticed how we always escape the vicious ensnarements of our enemies?"
Robin: "Yeah, because we're smarter than they are!"
Batman: "I like to think it's because our hearts are pure."

Robin: "I guess you can never trust a woman."
Batman: "You've made a hasty generalization, Robin. It's a bad habit to get into."

Robin: "That's an impossible shot, Batman."
Batman: "That's a negative attitude, Robin."

Robin: "Where'd you get a live fish, Batman?"
Batman: "The true crimefighter always carries everything he needs in his utility belt, Robin."

Batman: "The green button will turn the car a la escarda o a la drecia."
Robin: "To the left or right. Threw in a little Spanish on me, huh, Batman?"
Batman: "One should always keep abreast of foreign tongues, Robin."

Robin: "We better hurry, Batman."
Batman: "Not too fast, Robin. In good bat-climbing as in good driving one must never sacrifice safety for speed."
Robin: "Right again, Batman."

Robin: "I am a little hungry."
Batman: "Of course, Robin. Even crime-fighters must eat. And especially you. You're a growing boy and you need your nutrition."

Batman: "Ma Parker's girl is more dangerous than her three boys."
Robin: "Her legs sort of reminded me of Catwoman's."
Batman: "You're growing up, Robin. Remember, in crime-fighting always keep your sights raised."

Batman (about to cross the street): "Remember Robin, always look both ways."

And a personal favorite for dishing some Batman wisdom on economics...
Robin: "Gosh, Economics is sure a dull subject."
Bruce: "Oh, you must be jesting, Dick. Economics dull? The glamour, the romance of commerce... Hmm. It's the very lifeblood of our country's society."

Many thanks to franjie for the hilarious post.

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you  would have $49.00 left.  

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00. 

  With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left. 

  But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of  the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you  would have $214.00 cash.
