Funny / Batman & Robin

  • At the start of the movie, Batman and Robin are standing in the Batcave after suiting up and watching the Batmobile rise up. Once the Batmobile finally arrives, this exchange follows:
    Robin: I want a car.
    (Batman looks at Robin, as if to ask "Really?")
    Batman: This is why Superman works alone.
  • Most of Mr. Freeze's puns.
    • "MERRRRRRCCYYYYY?!?! I'm afraid my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy!"
    • "You are not sending me to the cooler!"
    • "Stay cool, bird-boy!"
    • "Can you be cold, Batman?!"
    • "FROSTY!"
    • "All right, everyone! CHILL!"
    • "Cool party!"
    • "It's a cold town."
    • "Allow me to break the ice..."
    • "If revenge is a dish best served cold, then put on your Sunday's finest! It is FEAST!"
    • "Let's kick some ICE!!!"
    • "Tonight's forecast—a freeze is coming!"
  • CRASH! "Hi, Freeze." [Head Bob] "I'm Batman."
  • Freeze yelling "KILL THE HEROES! YES! KILL THEM! KILL THEM! YES!" as his Mooks leap out and advance on the Dynamic Duo.
  • After Freeze freezes Robin and makes his escape, he seals the hole he escapes through behind him with an ice blast, then leans back into view, wipes away some condensation, and waves at Batman before leaving.
  • This bit with Dr. Woodrue after Pamela calls him out for his experiments:
    Dr. Woodrue: (to Pamela, calmly) Well, I can respect your opinion. Sadly, I'm not good at rejection. I'm afraid you'll have to die. (lets out a high-pitched shriek as he pushes Pamela into a table of chemicals)
    • John Glover's role as Dr. Woodrue, while brief, is one big Crowning Moment of Funny due to the sheer contrast between his very over-the-top character in this film and his role as the more composed and subtle Lionel Luthor.
      Woodrue: (after attacking Pamela) Yes. Yes, let the toxins and chemicals burn a grave for you deep into the earth you love so much! Bye-bye, dear! FELLOW MANIACS! BIDDING...BEGINS!
    • "Time to scream!"
    • The over-the-top groan Woodrue lets out as he falls dead after Poison Ivy kisses him.
  • The security footage at Gotham University Labs, which tells Freeze's Origin Story. As he's falling into the vat of cryonic mutagen, he lets out a scream. However, this is Arnie we're talking about here, so it sounds more like a bunch of loud, angry, gargling gibberish.
  • Freeze wearing a blue robe and polar bear slippers, and urging his Mooks to sing along to Snow Miser's song before finally giving up.
    Freeze: C'MON, SING! SING! LOUDER, C'MON! SING! SING! (throws up hands in defeat) Ah...
  • Most examples are due to Narm, but one or two lines are intentionally amusing.
    Miss B. Haven: (flirting with Freeze) Freezie, I'm hot.
  • The Mood Whiplash that ensues when one of Freeze's henchmen interrupts him watching home videos of him and his wife, and Freeze shoots him an angry glare before picking up his ice gun and freezing the henchman, followed by this line:
    Freeze: I hate when people talk during the movie!
  • Batman's credit card. That lasts forever.
    Batman: Never leave the cave without it.
    • The bidding scene in general.
  • Freeze and Ivy's first interaction at the auction:
    Freeze: Well, look at you. Let me guess...Plant Girl? Vine Lady, huh? Hand over the diamond, Garden Gal, or I'll turn you to mulch!
    (Ivy tries using her pheromones on Freeze)
    Freeze: (appears to have been affected by the pheromones) Pheromone dust, designed to heat a man's blood. (beat; then glares at Ivy) But that doesn't work on the cold-hearted. Now if you'll please...
    • When someone falls to the floor nearby a few seconds afterward, Freeze goes "Oh! That's my exit cue!"
  • During Freeze's attack at the auction, Batman knocks out one of Freeze's goons by driving his fist through an object the goon had been wielding as a weapon. As the goon stands dazed before falling over, we get this:
    Batman: (very deadpan) Good night.
  • Shortly after Freeze attacks the charity auction and makes a getaway, Batman heads off in pursuit of Freeze, but Robin lingers behind, entranced by Poison Ivy, forcing Batman to come back, grab Robin's arm, and pull him away.
  • The sad, almost pouty look on Freeze's face after Batman apprehends him.
    • Before that, Freeze hits the coming Batmobile with an ice blast and believes the Bat is dead. He laughs evilly...until he looks and sees that Batman not only survived, but is swooping down toward him. His reaction right before Batman crashes through the window of his vehicle is worth plenty of giggles.
    Freeze: Hahahaha! (spots Batman swooping in) UH-OH!
  • Freeze marveling "A laundry service that delivers! Wow!" after Bane brings him his gear during Poison Ivy's breakout in Arkham.
  • More exchanges between Ivy and Freeze:
    Ivy: What are you, about a fifty big-and-tall?
    Freeze: No. I always go a size smaller; makes me look slimmer!

    Freeze: I'm running on empty. I need to get more diamonds from my hideout!
    Ivy: I'll help you grab your rocks!
  • This exchange between the Dynamic Duo:
    Robin: I can't believe we were fighting over a bad guy.
    Batman: "Bad," yes. "Guy," no.
    • Also:
    Batman: Nice stems, though.
    Robin: Buds, too.
    Batman: Yeah, those were nice.
  • After Poison Ivy gets the jump on him, Batman wondering why he always attracts psychopaths.
    Batman: Is it me?
  • "You LIE!" True, it was said during a traumatic moment, but Arnold's delivery of that line, complete with Declarative Finger, was hilarious.
    • This is followed by an equally-hammy vow of vengeance upon Batman.
  • The hilarious way Clooney says "Dick" while arguing with Dick about Poison Ivy.
    Bruce: She wants to kill you, Dick, and you're not thinking straight!
  • "No matter what they tell you, Mister Bane. It is the size of your gun that counts!"
  • This little gem after Freeze and Bane crash into the observatory and come upon two technicians working on the telescope Freeze needs to use his freezing engine.
    Freeze: Hi! Oh, I'm sorry about the door! Is the party over?
  • Batman figting Freeze
    "Yay, Batman!" "Oh no!"
  • When Batgirl rescues Batman and Robin from Ivy and tells them she knows their secret:
    Batman: She knows who we are.
    Robin: I guess we'll just have to kill her.
    Batman: Yep, we'll kill her later, we've got work to do.
