Batman Forever

Synopsis: The Dark Knight of Gotham City confronts a dastardly duo: Two-Face and the Riddler.

Edward Nygma, computer-genius and former employee of millionaire Bruce Wayne, is out to get the philanthropist; as The Riddler he perfects a device for draining information from all the brains in Gotham, including Bruce Wayne's knowledge of his other identity. Batman/Wayne is/are the love focus of Dr. Chase Meridan. Former circus acrobat Dick Grayson, his family killed by Two-Face, becomes Wayne's ward and Batman's new partner Robin the Boy Wonder.

[Metallic clanking]

[Dramatic instrumental music, background]

Can I persuade you to take a sandwich?

I'll get drive-through.

[Batmobile engine roars]

[Engine revs in acceleration]

[Batman Forever theme song plays]

[Crowd shouting]

[High-pitched screeching]

You're counting on the Winged Avenger

to deliver you from evil...

...aren't you, my friend?

[Chuckles softly]

Are you going to kill me?

Maybe, maybe not.

We're of two minds on the subject.

TWO-FACE:
Are you a gambling man?

Let's say we flip for it?

TWO-FACE:
One man is born a hero,

his brother a coward.

[Whispers] Babies starve,

politicians grow fat...

...holy men are martyred,

and junkies grow legion.

Why?

TWO-FACE:
Why, why, why, why, why?

Luck!

[Shouts] Blind, stupid, simple, doo-dah...

...clueless luck!

[Cackles]

TWO-FACE:
The random toss...

...is the only true justice.

Let's see what justice has in store...

...for you.

[Chuckles]

TWO-FACE:
[Whispers]

It's like the touch of God.

Wait, wait, wait.

[Gasps]

Fortune smiles.

Another day of wine and roses.

In your case, beer and pizza.

TWO-FACE:
Out of here, guys!

BANK GUARD:
You said you'd let me live!

TWO-FACE:
Too true!

TWO-FACE:
And so you shall! Nothing's

better than live bait to trap a bat.

[Chaotic reactions from crowd]

[Batman Forever theme song plays,

background]

[Crowd shouting and talking excitedly]

Hot entrance.

Two-Face?

Two guards are dead.

He's holding a third hostage.

Didn't see this one coming.

CHASE:
We should have.

The Second Bank of Gotham...

BATMAN:
Second anniversary

of the day I captured him.

CHASE:
How could he resist?

I'm Chase Meridian.

COMMISSIONER:
I asked her to come here

to consult on the case. She specializes in...

Abnormal psychology,

multiple personalities. I read your work.

Insightful.

Naive, but insightful.

I'm flattered. Not every girl

makes a superhero's night table.

COMMISSIONER:
Can we reason with him?

He's got innocent people up there.

CHASE:
It won't do any good.

He'll slaughter them without a thought.

BATMAN:
Agreed.

A trauma powerful enough to create

an alternate personality leaves one...

CHASE:
In a world where normal rules

of right and wrong no longer apply.

Exactly.

CHASE:
Like you.

I could write a hell of a paper on a man

who dresses like a flying rodent.

Bats aren't rodents, Dr. Meridian.

Really? I didn't know that.

You are interesting.

[Propellers pelting overhead]

And call me Chase.

By the way, do you have a first name,

or do I call you Bats?

[Chaotic reactions from crowd]

[Dramatic instrumental beat, background]

Let's start this party with a bang!

[Thunderous crashing]

[Cackles]

[Bell rings]

Very punctual, even for his own funeral.

Boys!

TWO-FACE:
Kill the Bat!

[Cackles]

[Cackles]

[Bell rings]

Blast him!

[Rapid machine-gun blasts]

[Silence]

Open sesame.

[Metallic scraping]

[Two-Face grunts]

[Grunting and groaning]

[Fast-paced instrumental music,

background]

[Zap]

[Groaning]

[Wailing]

[Grunting and groaning]

[Huffing and puffing]

[Yelling]

[Muffled shouting]

Ouch!

BANK GUARD:
It's a trap!

[Short, rapid gasps]

[Loud, distorted sound effects]

Oh, no!

[More distorted and echoing sound effects]

[Bank guard screams]

[Chaotic yelling and screaming from crowd]

[Instrumental music continues,

background]

TWO-FACE ON LOUDSPEAKER:

Attention citizens of fair Gotham!

[Cackles hysterically]

When we open that safe,

we'll have everything we ever wanted:

Enough cash to rain down upon

fair Gotham, a glorious flood of chaos.

And, of course...

... you, my boy, dead!

[Two-Face chuckles]
