What Does Robin Say to Batman

What does Robin say to Batman? That depends on the situation. Robin always says "Holy [insert word here] Batman! Robin used this phrase whenever he was confused or surprised by what was happening in a particular scene. This phrase was hugely popular on the 1960s TV series, but the writers used it too much, and it became the show's demise, even though it slipped into popular culture.

In the Batman movies, this phrase was all but dropped, except for once in "Batman Forever," where Chris O'Donnell, who played Robin, said it to Batman. In the original series, Robin would often blurt out his one-sentence opinion of the situation after hopping out of Batman's Batmobile.

  • Holy bill of rights, Batman! 
  • Holy haberdashery, Batman!
  • Holy atomic pile, Batman!
  • Holy priceless collection of Etruscan snoods!
  • Holy demolition, Batman!
  • Holy heart failure, Batman!
  • Holy Long John Silver, Batman! 
  • Holy Captain Nemo, Batman!
  • Holy costume party, Batman!
  • Holey rusted metal, Batman! The ground. It's all metal. It's full of holes. You know, holey. This line, used in Batman Forever, poked fun at the catchphrase from the TV series, a trend that would sink the series on film for a time. As the Batman and Robin poster hinted, campiness was to return in Joel Schumacher's second Batman film as director.

There are other things Robin says to Batman. Some of those things are funny, some are nerdy and some are serious. Some of these things include:

  • The way we get into these scrapes and get out of them, it's almost as though someone was dreaming up these situations; guiding our destiny.
  • The opposite of a girl is a boy!
  • I hate to disappoint you, but my rubber lips are immune to your charms.
  • The batcomputer is none too frisky today, Batman.
  • It's all a blur. Like a horrible day-mare.
  • You she-devil! Have you short-circuited Batman's brain?
  • I bet Batman is the only one in the world with a hand steady enough to paint false fingerprints.
