  • Batman: He's done something to Luke Fox.
  • Red Hood: no, he hasn't... He thinks you're Luke Fox.
  • Batman: What? Why?

  • Red Hood: That's not your Batmobile, Terry... Just like this isn't your Batcave. I think this all belongs to Bruce Wayne.
  • Batman: Well, yeah... I mean his name is on the deed, in a matter of speaking, but I'm the Batman-
  • Redbird: No... You're not. Not now.
  • Batman: What are you talking about?
  • Red Hood: We went back in time. [rapid footsteps, rapid keystrokes, error beep, scoff] I don't have authentication to check the date.

  • Lizzie Dahl: Stoat it, Sammy... min' at explosion? It must've bin a psychic mind-wipe ur somethin'.

  • Redbird: [whisper:] This can't really be us, right? We would remember this sort of thing, right?
  • Kamali: [whisper:] Reit thaur wi' ye, Sammy... thes is saeunschway.
  • Red Hood: [footsteps] So, you two are in the Batcave... and yet you don't seem to be thrilled by this. Why is that?
  • Sam Kane: Well, uh, no to brag but we kind of know Batman.
  • Lizzie Dahl: This is actually mah first time in thes Batca'e, but y'know seen one, you've seen them aw. Thes one has actual bats, thocht.
  • Sam Kane: How do you know Batman?
  • Red Hood: Well, uh... I work with his son-
  • Sam Kane: With the Red Hood? Yeah... I kinda figured that one out. Oh! You're Scarlet, aren't you?! I was wondering when I was going to get to meet you! I like the suit by the way! Very high-tech!
  • Red Hood: Thanks, kid... Say, uh, you kids know Gotham pretty well, right? You know anywhere we can lay low for a bit?
  • Sam Kane: Away from the Anti-Monitor's goosn? Sure. I think I know just a place. Uh... One of you is going to have to drive, though.
  • Red Hood: How about it Batman- err... Batwing? Think you can handle those wheels?
  • Batman: [scoff] Yeah. I think I can manage... [footsteps]
  • Redwing: What are you doing? The car's over there-
  • Batman: [screentap, screentap, screentap, screentap, beep, air hiss, glass door opens, fabric shifting] Borrowing the keys... There's an ID chip built into the costumes. I don't think the one in my suit will be recognized by the retro vehicles.
  • Lizzie Dahl: Retro? Ah don't hink yoo're usin' 'at wuid reit...
  • Sam Kane: Yeah, and I don't think Batman would be too happy with you tearing up Jason's old costume, Luke...
  • Batman: Don't worry about it, Sam. I'll fix it later. [footsteps, engine turns over] See? Works like a charm. [beep, panel door slides open] Alright, kids... Climb aboard.
  • Lizzie Dahl: [footsteps: 2 instances, giggles: 2 instances] Thes is sae stoat! Ah pure techt, it's nae th' Batmobile ay mah dreams... but it is a Batmobile, reit?
  • Sam Kane: Yeah. This is the team transport model and heavy duty barricade smasher. Actually, I think it's called the 'Bat-tering Ram'.
  • Lizzie Dahl: [scoff] You're makin' 'at up, Sammy! Nae way it's called 'at.
  • Redwing: [footsteps] [whisper:] Why are we leaving, Lian? Shouldn't we stay here and wait for Batman to show up?
  • Kamali: [whisper:] Aye... What's th' play haur?
  • Red Hood: [sigh] [whisper:] Something isn't right here, guys... Come on. You said it yourself. You don't have any recollection of this. This isn't our past. For all we know the Batman of this time is a maniac. We need to find somewhere quiet to lay low and formulate a plan. We'll see where the kids take us and go from there... but it might not be a bad idea to go to get some distance. Maybe Blüdhaven?
  • Redwing: [scoff] [whisper:] Blüdhaven? You just want to see your dad.
  • Red Hood: [whisper:] That's not it at all.
  • Kamali: [whisper:] Lian, it's braw if it is... jist be honest. Swatch. Ah woods loove a chance tea see mah dad again, tay... an' I'm sure Sammy woods loove tae see Jos-
  • Batman: Hey, Outsiders? You coming or what? This party wagon ain't hanging around forever.
  • Red Hood: [whisper:] Just follow my lead, okay? And whatever you do... Don't let your younger selves realize your true identities, okay?
  • Redwing: [whisper:] Right.
  • Kamali: [whisper:] Ay coorse. Makes sense.
  • Red Hood: [footsteps: 3 instances] We're coming, uh, Luke...
  • Harold Allnut: Uh... Wait, no one is going to help Harold pick up the mess?
  • Batman: Yeah... Uh, just give me five minutes and give me- Luke Fox- a call and remind me what happened. I'll give you hand, buddy. [door closes, chuckle] What? Luke owes me a favor... or he will, in like nine years...
