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.

Omg  G&G you are a genius!
My favorite is:
Gosh Batman, we could have been killed!
Or worse Robin, Or worse, HUH???
Oh Vic, there are things worse than death, you know.
Thanks for bringing it here. I was born in 1960, and watched Batman religiously...gosh, it sure was helpful in my development.
Haha!! One of the funniest things I've read! I couldn't stop laughing. Know I'm a little late since this was put up over a year ago, but I just came across it now. I wish I was around in the 60's to actually have been able to watch them. But I have the movie!
I love batman so do my friends she loves batman
