Batman: Where is Zucco hiding?
Shooter: I don't know nothing! If I did I wouldn't tell nothing to you! The man who took down Zucco's whole gun joint, my friends
Batman: You don't have the luxury of friends! You may as well be dead, this isn't the way man was supposed to live, I sense you are lying to me
Shooter: I'm serious I know nothing! You may want to go up the ranks and ask someone who has the luxury of friends!
Dick: (Grasps baton) You believe this guy?
Batman: As much as I need to, he's worthless
BATMAN SLAMS THE MAN'S HEAD KNOCKING HIM OUT
Dick: What now?
Batman: We have research to do

Dick: How's your dad?
Barbara: Getting better, he's back on the job, more protective then ever
Dick: Your lucky
Barbara: What to have lived?
Dick: To have a dad like that, I didn't get to the point where my parents were protective
Barbara: What happened to your parents? You haven't really told me
Dick: I don't really... Feel, you know... Comfortable
Barbara: Oh I'm sorry Dick
Dick: It's fine I just know that it changed me
Barbara: Good or bad change
Dick: i don't know yet...

Bo: I'm sick of this abuse man! I can do this, I was drunk!
Tony: (Pulls out gun) For the last time... NO (Shoots Bo in the head)
Tony: What!? You worthless lackeys, that's all you are, sidekicks who are always a step behind! (Shoots Crey)
Slain: Alright sir, I don't, I won't question you
Tony: I'll let you live, reach out to this guy for me, he's the real deal, took on America's Justice League once...
TONY GIVES SLAIN PIECE OF PAPER, HE LOOKS AT IT
Slain: Slade Wilson?
Tony: Took me a few weeks but I learned how to reach out to him, find him, call me, the meeting will begin
Slain: Okay, okay, (Trembles as he walks out of the room)

Dick: This better be good man

Barry: You know I could've just come to you right
Bruce: I'd prefer not
WALLY WEST APPROACHES DICK, THE 2 KNUCKLE TOUCH,
Dick: What's this about?
Wally: Nostalgia of heroes I guess
Dick: I guess so... You a sidekick?
Wally: Yeah, wish I wasn't, what about you?
Dick: Yeah, Robin...
Wally: HAH! Who came up with that lame name!?
Wally: Poor choice bro, why not Kid Bat or the Batman of the new generation
Wally: Dude come o--
Dick: Just... NO
Barry: Slade Wilson? On Zucco's payroll? No way, he doesn't take orders from anybody.
Bruce: If it involves killing me and Dick, he will, knowing him, he'll probably go solo half way through, double crossing Zucco
Barry: Why do you want this Zucco guy so bad, Joker escaped Arkham, Two Face is doing the regular "justice"
Bruce: Zucco killed his parents
LOOKS AT DICK, BARRY SHAKES HEAD INHALING
Barry: Jesus man...
Bruce: He needs closure, like I did, like you did
Barry: Alright, I'll look into it, just give me a shout if it gets to real

SLADE IS SHOWN, MASK OFF, GUN IN A HOLSTER, SWORD ON HIS BACK, GRENADES, MORE GUNS, A RIFLE, ETC. ON THE DOCKS WITH ZUCCO AND SLAIN
Slade: Batman? Didn't know he had a sidekick that's pathetic
Zucco: Yeah it is, what do you say
Slade: I don't take calls from others, Tony, this is your problem, but considering it's Batman you're talking about, this could go forward
Slade: But it's not that simple, since you are a "shot caller" you get me an exact place, exact time, you give me all the intel and I'll strike
Zucco: That'll take some time
Slade: Time you need, the clock is ticking, hurry up
SLAIN AND ZUCCO STEP INTO A TAXI
Slain: That guy looks legit
Zucco: Let's hope so
DICK AND BRUCE ARE IN THE BATCAVE LOOKING INTO ZUCCO, HIS TRUSTED ASSOCIATES, FINDING THOMAS C. HOWARD, A TRUSTED DEALER TO ZUCCO
Dick: How long is this going to take?
Bruce: We need to find Zucco
Dick: You honestly have no clue how to get to him, look at your technology, you said it could track anyone
Bruce: In Gotham
Dick: WOW! Great... Because I definitely want to sit around here doing nothing
Bruce: What is your problem Dick
BRUCE STANDS UP AND SO DOES DICK
Dick: You tell me nothing Bruce, and when you do it's mostly lies
Bruce: Where is this coming from? Out of blue with you, always
Dick: Sorry but watching my parents die at a young age kind of has my mind in a cluster!
Bruce: I'm trying to help you
Dick: By lying to me about Zucco, we could've had him by now!
Bruce: You want the truth! We got a big problem! Zucco has a man on his side that could kill both of us!
Dick: Trying to help me? Again?
Bruce: Who are you?
Dick: I don't need this man!
Bruce: You lose your temper to much Dick, I went through the same thing at your age, the pain, the sense that you could've done something I know how you feel
Dick: You don't! You say you do but you don't! Let's just put on our costumes and masks that we hide behind and find this guy!
Bruce: So be it

Dick: There is no us!
Bruce: Really? You chose this life
Dick: NO! You chose it for me! (Tears of anger come out)
Bruce: What's this about!
Dick: Use your senses! That you say you have! You just tortured a man in front of his kid! Your no better than Zucco, or Chill!
Bruce: (Looks down and looks up at Bruce) Don't think about coming home
Dick: I wasn't! I'm finding Zucco and Slade and I'm killing them both!
Bruce: You can't take a kid crying I don't think you can handle killing
Dick: Oh yes I can! I'm not you! I will kill someone if I need to, but I will not invade homelives and sacrifice a man right in front of his child, that's weak!
Bruce: Killing is weak

Barbara: With who?
Dick: The man who killed my parents... The man who got his men to come into the circus and shoot them in front of me, the man who ruined me... I have to go
Barbara: No... Stay please
Dick: I can't Barbara... After this you'll see me again, but I can't risk you more than I already have, I'm leaving you out of this, I don't want you getting hurt, just remember me?
