* More than one film critic has argued that Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman in ''Batman Returns'' was ''the'' female performance of 1992. Perhaps her Crowning Moment comes when she interrupts a confrontation between Batman and the Penguin, who are outside Shreck's Department Store. She has been in there setting it up to explode (its owner, Max Shreck, tried to kill her and triggered her StartOfDarkness) and with a series of acrobatic flips she emerges to the surprise of the men. She has one word for ''them'': "Meow." As if on cue, the building explodes.

** Another Catwoman Moment of Awesome: As near the end, [[spoiler:Shreck tries to shoot her, and she counts off ''each life she "lost"'' with every shot in a sing-song voice. "Seven! All Good Girls Go To Heaven!" but still kept on going, until she used a taser and a cut electrical chord to give him a literal {{Kiss Of Death}}.]]

** Even the monkey is so terrified, that Batman made him go back to the lair and deliver a note to Penguin personally that states he failed. This became the first step in Penguin's VillainousBreakdown

* The opening credits. The title "Batman Returns" appearing as a swarm of bats fly over baby Penguin's carrage.
* When Max is relieved when Batman arrives, thinking he's saved, only for Batman to face-mush him and reply, "Shut up, you're going to jail." Hardcore Bat-fan Kevin Smith points out that this is probably the most quintessential, classic, true Batman moment in the movie.
