Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimacticUnmasking: Calendar Girl spends the whole episode obsessing about how no-one can see her face, leading us to think that it's some hideous botched plastic surgery she got after being forced out of modeling. Instead she looks perfectly normal, but can only see the tiny flaws from her aging.

%%* BandagedFace* BandagedFace: Calendar Girl got surgery to help her fading beauty, and was horrified at the results (or what her deluded mind thought was the results).



** While Calendar Girl has [[WhiteDwarfStarlet additional gimmicks]], she is obviously a GenderFlip (and YoungerAndHipper) stand-in for Calendar Man.

* DontLookAtMe: Calendar Girl covered her face with a mask at all times, at the risk of her BerserkButton. When she's unmasked at the end, Batgirl whispers that "She's beautiful," but Batman coolly replies that to the woman herself, all she can see are the flaws.

* ReluctantRetiree: A [[PlotParallel subplot]] dealt with Bruce Wayne having to force this on an otherwise competent but elderly manager at Wayne Corp. After the episode's plot make him reconsider the value of experience and his own aging, he [[ForgotICouldChangeTheRules lifts the "mandatory" aspect of the company's retirement policy]]. When he tells the manager of this change, the man is visibly excited that he can keep working until he is ready to make the choice to retire on his own. He toss his wig high up in joy.

!!Tropes:

* ActorAllusion: Sela Ward[[note]]who was passed over for a Bond girl role because she was supposedly "too old"[[/note]] played Page Monroe, a.k.a. "Calendar Girl" -- a former model who turned to a life of crime after being passed over in favor of younger faces and tried to exact revenge on the ones who ended her career.
* AmusingInjury: Batman throws a henchman into a car with the front open. The door slams shut and he screams.
* BadVibrations: A glass of water vibrates to indicate a rampaging robot ''T. rex''.
* BandagedFace
* BeautifulAllAlong: Unfortunately she's not sane enough to see it.
* BeautyToBeast
* BoundAndGagged: Three fashion executives are tied up for judgement from Calendar Girl.
* CanonForeigner: Calendar Girl
* ChippendalesDancers: Calendar Girl's {{Mook}}s are dressed up in similar costumes, providing a gender-flipped version of BodyguardBabes.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: At the beginning, a fat rich lady wishes to buy one of the clothes the fashion models on the catwalk were wearing. One guy asked who she's buying it for, and she hits him with her purse. He doesn't know why she was angry at him.
* DontLookAtMe: Calendar Girl covered her face with a mask at all times, at the risk of her BerserkButton. When she's unmasked at the end, Batgirl whispers that "She's beautiful," but Batman coolly replies that to the woman herself, all she can see are the flaws.
* {{Expy}}:
** While Calendar Girl has [[WhiteDwarfStarlet additional gimmicks]], she is obviously a GenderFlip (and YoungerAndHipper) stand-in for Calendar Man.
** The GWB network, which even has a WB-style water tower
** Doris Day looks like Hollywood costume designer Edith Head.
* FashionShow: The first crime is committed at one.
* MatchCut: A dissolve from Batman in the field to Bruce Wayne in his office.
* MinorInjuryOverreaction: Calendar Girl views herself as a hideous and deformed person whose dreadful appearance has only been exacerbated by countless rounds of plastic surgery. Beneath her mask, however, she is a beautiful woman whose self-image was destroyed [[HollywoodHomely when she was kicked out of the modeling community in favor of younger women]].
* NoIndoorVoice:
-->'''Henchman:''' You know what I want from you two?\\
'''Donna Day and Barkley James:''' ''(eagerly)'' What?\\
'''Henchman:''' '''''QUIET!''''' [[MoodWhiplash The boss is thinking.]]
* PrettyInMink: A good number of the ladies at the fashion show wear fur wraps.
* ReluctantRetiree: A [[PlotParallel subplot]] dealt with Bruce Wayne having to force this on an otherwise competent but elderly manager at Wayne Corp. After the episode's plot make him reconsider the value of experience and his own aging, he [[ForgotICouldChangeTheRules lifts the "mandatory" aspect of the company's retirement policy]].

* TotallyRadical: Parodied in a scene showing a group of network bigwigs pilots:
-->(''kid with backwards baseball cap and shades skateboards up to the camera, pulls out a police badge'')\\
'''Kid:''' You're busted!\\
'''Announcer:''' Teen Cop: inner-city street drama with a fresh attitude.\\
'''Kid:''' Education RULES!
* YoungerAndHipper: Deconstructed with Calendar Girl. She was a former model who was "past her prime" (that is, she had turned 30) and wanted revenge against the fashion industry that abandoned her. There was a scene where a company was pitching TV ideas such as something about a "teen cop" and "girls at a modelling college", etc., to drive the point home. In the end, it was revealed that Calendar Girl was still quite beautiful, but all she could see were the "flaws" that came with age. The irony? Calendar Girl herself is a younger-and-hipper update of Calendar Man, a somewhat lame CListFodder bat-rogue.
