Recap: The New Batman Adventures E4 "Double Talk"
aka: The New Batman Adventures Double Talk


  • Breaking Out the Boss: Rhino and Mugsy drive the Ventriloquist insane so his criminal mastermind alternate personality Scarface can emerge. When he does come back, he sets up a grand heist. When getaway is imminent, he tries to kill the goons for forcing him out early.
    Scarface: When the arms think they're smarter than the brains, it's time to amputate.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Arnold Wesker finally grabs a tommy gun and ventilates the Scarface doll.
  • Dutch Angle: Used to represent The Ventriloquist's confusion as to what is real and what is imaginary.
  • Gaslighting: To bring out Scarface, Rhino and Mugsy get an impersonator to call and talk to the Ventriloquist. They even make a new Scarface doll and leave it in his apartment.
  • Killed Off for Real: This is the last time we see Scarface, gunned down by the Ventriloquist and shredded by an industrial fan. The goons realize Scarface will kill them if he sees them again so they're not coming back. The episode ends with Arnold Wesker glad he finally has some peace and quiet.
  • Obfuscating Insanity: More like Obfuscating Sanity: The Scarface personality laid low and planned to emerge after Arnold Wesker's reformation when the time was right. He really didn't like the goons bringing him out early.
  • Offhand Backhand: The main picture of the page.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Arnold Wesker finally gets to be happy, rid of the Scarface personality.
