The video opens with a shot of several tables set up outside of the
entrance to a cave. People are milling around the tables. A sign is set
up that reads – Garage Sale! Batcave. The shot pans across the tables
that are covered with items ranging from ropes and swords to a fan and
a baseball cap. Charlie Sanders is shown picking up a Batarang.
Adam West: That Batarang was used to save Robin from the Count of
Conundrums and the River Rat Gang. (To other crowd members) Hi Folks.
Welcome! Just come in, look around here.
Brendan Hunt: You’re Adam West, right?
Adam West: That is correct.
Jean Villepique: Wow. What are you doing selling all this old Batman stuff?
Adam West: Well, earlier this year Batman succumbed to the evil perils
of Bernie Madoff. So, he’s a little strapped for cash right now.
Charlie Sanders: Hey, how much for this Bat-Communicator thing?
Adam West: A thousand dollars.
Charlie Sanders: You gotta be kidding me?
Adam West: Well, that Bat-Communicator was used to eject King Tut from
the Batmobile when he discovered the Bat-Beam button. He could have
destroyed the world.
Charlie Sanders: I’ll give you twenty bucks for it.
Adam West: Sold.
Charlie Sanders: Alright.
Charlie Sanders hands over some cash.
Adam West: Batman is fifteen dollars closer to another night at the Ramada Inn.
Allan McLeod is shown holding a pair of socks.
Allan McLeod: What are these?
Adam West: Those would be Bat-Socks
Allan McLeod: They just look like normal socks.
Adam West: Batman wore those socks.
Allan McLeod: Whatever.
Allan McLeod drops the socks onto the table and walks away.
Adam West: Sir…um…did I ever tell you…(Turns to Brendan Hunt and Jean
Villepique) Did I ever tell you about the time Don Robbins was
kidnapped by the Penguin?
Brendan Hunt: What? Um, no.
Adam West: Well, if you’ll take me to Arby’s for a big beef and cheddar, I’ll tell you that and maybe a thousand other stories.
Brendan Hunt: We’re not taking you to Arby’s. Look, what are you doing?
Why don’t you just admit you lost your money in the Ponzi scheme?
Jean Villepique: Yeah, everyone knows that Batman isn’t a real person.
Adam West: That sounds like something the Riddler would say.
Brendan Hunt: We’re not with the Riddler. You’re embarrassing yourself.
Adam West makes pretend snoring noises.
Jean Villepique: Are you pretending to be asleep right now?
Adam West shakes his head no while continuing the pretend snoring sounds.
Brendan Hunt: You shook your head no while you were sleeping. You can’t do that if you’re sleeping.
