* The dialogue has so many clever uses of alliteration it's uncommonly literate for a mainstream blockbuster, and stands as its closest link to the goofier Silver Age and Adam West versions of Batman. "How can you be so mean to someone so meaningless?", "Cobblepot can clean it up", "eagle scouts into craze clowns and happy homemakers into Catwomen" are a few that come to mind.

* Batman's second fight with the Red Triangle Gang starts out with the Gang causing mayhem in the streets of Gotham while {{Circus Of Fear}}-style music plays. Then, the music suddenly shifts with Batman's {{Leitmotif}}, showing the audience that the evil clowns are ''in for a world of hurt''.

* 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"'' as he shoves him aside. Hardcore Bat-fan Kevin Smith points out that this is probably the most quintessential, classic, true Batman moment in the movie.

* 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.
