Movie paused to ask myself

... Did Dick, dressed as Batman, just comment on some katana-wielding Sisters by saying That would make them nunjas?

Yes. Yes, I think he did. Of course he did.

I think I now understand better Robin's tactical role. No matter how focused you are on following your plan, it's impossible to stay on mission when there's this kid dressed like a colorblind elf saying things like that. You just can't. You'd be aiming at Batman's back, ready to shoot, and you'd hesitate half a second too long, struggling between your cherished goal of killing Batman and your sudden, physical need to shoot that kid so he'll shut the fuck up. Must've been excruciating.

Hell, I'm sure Batman had to train himself specifically so he wouldn't stop during a fight to make sure he heard Dick say what he knows he said. Alfred probably has to deal every month with one or two young orphans bent on revenge who have crossed the world to reach Wayne Manor and learn Battle Punning at the feet of Dick Grayson.

I love this and I also love to imagine what pun-nonreaction training would look like. Hours and hours in the cave, whaling on training dummies while Dick hops around making up puns for Bruce to resist. Tragically, the practice helping Dick's puns more than Bruce's ability to ignore him. "bruce I'm tired it's a school night" "NO. MORE"

Heh. I can see that. Two of Bruce's overruling habits: he's always trying to turn everything in his life into a tool for the Bat, and he can never admit when he's thoroughly defeated.
