Secure from quarters.

All ahead two-thirds.

All ahead two-thirds.

Come left, heading 190.

Set depth for 100 meters.

Aye, aye! 20 degrees down angle

on the bow planes. Come left 190.

-Range to destination?

-Eight kilometers.

Hoskins, what are the conditions up there?

Thirty degrees below zero, sir,

and we've got a storm moving in.

Landing party on deck.

Collect your data quickly

and get back to the ship.

No one can survive for long

in that kind of cold.


Do you have dinner?


One hundred meters to surface. Reading

a layer of ice beneath mountainous terrain.

Possibly a cave.

-All back one-third.

-All back one-third.

Fifteen years today, darling.

Did you think l would forget?

How could l?

The day we met

was the happiest day of my life.

A gift for you. l found it in the snow.

Fragile beauty clinging to life

in this frozen wasteland.

Like you, Nora.

Thirty meters below surface and closing.

Estimate impact in fifteen seconds.

How long does she have to stay in there?

Until a cure can be found.

Until then, my love, we'll be here together.


Let's move out.

-Man, l've never seen it that cold.

-Let's get inside.

What in the name of....

My God! What happened?

-lt's the whole crew.

-Not quite.

You punks have robbed me

for the last time.

Myron, let the police handle it.

Come away.

-Do what she says, old man.

-l'm not afraid of you.


l warned you, mister.


Man, there must be

a couple of grand worth of stuff here.

Yeah, l told you it'd be easy.

What was that?

-Let's call the cops.

-Yeah, come on!

-What happened?

-l don't know.


Please, don't hurt me.

Listen, scum,

we're going to be watching you.

Keep your hands where we can see them.

-Yes, Alfred.

-We're running late, sir.

The party has already started.

-Meet us in two minutes.

-Very good, sir. On my way.

Thanks, Alfred.

l don't know what we'd do without you.

Frankly, sir, neither do l.


-John, looks like a good turnout.

-Thanks for inviting us.

-Have a good time.

-There you are. Hello, Bruce, Dick.


-Good to see a familiar face.

-Where's Barbara?

You know my daughter.

She's probably still getting ready.

My little girl.

You know, Dick,

there's no one sweeter in the world.

You've got plenty of competition.

Lots of guys are after her.

-l'm out of here! Go!

-Move it!

Are you all right?

Hey! Thanks.

But don't worry, you're on top of her list.

-You and Barbara getting serious?

-Maybe. You got any advice on women?

There you are.

Bruce, where have you been?

My friends are just dying to meet you.

Let me get back to you on that.

Here he is, ladies.

Gotham's most elusive bachelor.

lsn't he handsome?

-Bruce, this is Buffy and Debra and Caitlin.

-Hello, Bruce! So nice to meet you!

Well, excuse you.

l'd keep my money

in low-risk mutual funds...

-...that way, if the market dips--

-We have to talk.

Gregory, l didn't know

we had a meeting scheduled.

-Would you excuse us for a minute?


-How come you're not returning my calls?

-l told you, there's nothing more l can do.

You're my stockbroker.

You got me into this, now get me out.

l got you....

Listen, you got yourself into this.

l warned you that futures are risky.

Everything l own is on the line here.

This will ruin me!

Hey, you rolled the dice,

you'd better be able to cover the bet.

Those calls come due in a few days,

and you're legally required to pay them.

But l don't have the cash.

-Can't you stall, buy me some time?

-l'm sorry. There's nothing more l can do.


Hey there!


Hi, Dad. Sorry l'm late.

Look at you. Honey, you're a knockout!

Thanks, Dad.

Someone's been looking for you.

Boy, is he one lucky guy.

Hey, what's the idea

of keeping me waiting so long?

Just playing hard to get.

-She is hard to get.


Well, before your dance card fills up,

may l?

-l get the next dance.

-Don't count on it.

Expect record highs for the rest of the

week with temperatures in the mid-90s.


-Hello, Gregory.

-Victor? My God, is that you?

You're a hard man to get a hold of, Doctor.

Your secretary wouldn't give me

an appointment until next September.

Now, is that any way

to treat an old colleague?

-What do you want?

-l've got a patient who needs you.

-Leaving so soon?

-l have to work late tonight.

l've heard that before.

-l'll call you tomorrow, Ronnie. l promise.

-l've heard that one, too.

We're going to dance some more.

Barbara will give me a ride home.

Have a nice time.

l wish l were.

l thought you wanted to dance some more.

l do, but first l wanted

to ask you something.


-Well, l was wondering....


You want to go up the coast

for the weekend?

-Sure. With who?

-With me!

There's a jazz festival in Rockport,

and there's stuff going on at the beach.

Sounds fun. l'd love to.

Really? That's great!

Alfred, would you mind turning up

the air conditioning?

Good heavens!

Strange. There's not a cloud in the sky.

Belongs to someone named Belson.

lt's not good.

When her containment vessel ruptured,

her disease relapsed.

-She's got a couple of weeks at best.


Don't shoot the messenger, Victor.

l'm just telling you like it is.

Nothing can save her now,

short of an organ transplant.

Then, do it.

lmpossible. You need a compatible donor,

and there's a waiting list a mile long.

We'd never get the organ in time.

-l have confidence you'll find a way.

-Don't threaten me, Victor.

l'm the only hope she's got.

And this is going to cost you.

The kind of service we're talking

about here doesn't come cheap.

Gregory. l see you haven't changed.


There aren't any available organs.

-What about these?

-Not compatible.

Nora's blood type is extremely rare.

There aren't any deceased donors

that match.

-Then we'll have to use a live donor.

-What? Are you crazy? They'd die!

l know.

Man, you're a piece of work.

l said l'd help, but this....

This is going to cost you

more than a little gold nugget.

l mean, the risks involved....

This is just a small sample

from a large vein l discovered in the Arctic.

You do this, and it's yours. All of it.

These hospital files

list every blood donor in Gotham.

We want someone who's approximately

the same weight, height, and female.

Here's one.


Her name is Barbara Gordon.


-Barbara Gordon?

No, she's not here.

This is Jenny, her roommate.

-What time do you expect her in?

-She won't be back till Monday.

-Who is this, please?

-This is County Memorial Hospital.

Barbara's listed with us as a blood donor.

She's dining out with her boyfriend.

They are at the coast for the weekend.

We've got an emergency.

Where did they go for dinner?

l think she said Shaugnessy's,

over on Madison.



Didn't spill a drop.

-Oh, man!

-lt could have been worse.

-Yeah, how?

-lt could have been me.

-We got enough left for a toast?

-Sure. What will we drink to?

How about the kiss
