- ―The Joker to Gotham's citizens at the 200th Anniversary Parade.[src]
The Joker put his own plans into motion to upstage Gotham City's canceled anniversary celebrations with a grand spectacle: a nighttime parade at which he would dispense $20 million in free cash (in the comic book adaption, that money was revealed to be fake as it had the Joker's face on it). Vicki Vale and Alexander Knox were there to cover the pandemonium, and they noticed strange tanks on the balloons. In the middle of his generosity, the Joker gassed the crowd. Batman arrived in the Batwing, snatched the balloons away, and carried them out of the city. Furious, the Joker shot Bob, his number one Goon. Batman returned to make a strafing run on the Joker, who responded and shot down the Batwing with an insanely long-barreled revolver.
