Commissioner Gordon: (to Barbara) Pam's a bad seed.
Temblor: (To Pamela) You see, boss, the way it works is: When you don't pay, you pay!
Barbara: Hey, we're good for it. We'll raise the money with ... a bake sale! You like brownies?
Temblor: You dialed D for Destruction!
Temblor: Let's rumble!
(After possessed Batman starts attacking her)
Batgirl: Guess you were serious about not wanting a sidekick!
Batgirl: Yup, it's official ... I hate vegetables!
Temblor: Howdy, I'm Temblor. Let's shake!
Batman: (to Temblor) And here I thought earthquakes struck without warning.
Commissioner Gordon: Set up a perimeter. If Mr. Quake so much as breathes, I want someone there to tell me what he had for lunch.
Poison Ivy: You're getting to be a real thorn in my side, Batman.
Batman: And you're no rose, Poison Ivy.
Pamela: That stuff mutates plants! I don't wanna see what it does to humans!
Barbara: (to Temblor) I'm warning you, I'm-I'm an Olympic hopeful!
Barbara: Did one of your twigs snap, Pam? You hired a thug!
Pamela: You'd be surprised what you can find on the Internet.
Pamela's Mom: Pammy! I need you to take out the trash!
Temblor: Who was that?!
Pamela: That ... was my henchman.
