Superhero Hotline featuring Robin
-Oh, Robin, you're just the guy I was looking for.
-I'm glad to serve, sir. Please state your emergency and we'll see what we can do for you.
-"We?" I was only thinking of you. It's not as if I wanted you two at the same time. It would be a little overwhelming--
-I'm the sidekick, sir. Batman is the one with the experience. I always follow his lead.
-Well, I hadn't considered it that way-- Would the two of you be okay with it?
-Sure, sir, you should see Batman do his acrobatics and he has all kind of wonderful toys in his Batbelt.
-Now, Robin, I think we have a deal. So, how you charge?
-Holy business, sir! We do it for free!
-What? As in a hobby?
-Of course, sir, we're devoted to the people.
-No wonder you have so many fans.
-You flatter us, sir, we just do what we can to please everybody.
-Well, when can I get the two of you into my place?
-Just state your emergency and address and we'll be on our way.
From the other side of the Batcave:
-Robin, will you hang up the phone?
-Give me a second, sir. Batman, why should I do that? This man has an emergency!
-Just hang up, Robin. That call is not what you think it is.
-Holey phoney calls, Batman!
Back on the phone. Robin:
-Sir, I have to hang up. You're not tricking me this time! This death trap has the whole stink of the Penguin!
At the other side of the Batcave, Batman just sighed.
