Subject: Linguistic Contributions of Batman

For an article I am writing on the impact of Batman on the English language,
I would welcome suggestions of words, phrases, catchphrases, quotations,
snowclones, and other linguistic memes originated or popularized by the
Batman comic books, TV show, and movies.
