CHRISTMAS' EVE ON THE BATCAVE

Robin: Come on, Batman, it's Christmas Eve. Let's kick back and get into the spirit.
Batman: The Joker's escaped from Arkham Asylum, Robin.
Robin: And you really think he's gonna make his move on Christmas Eve? Even scum spend the holidays with their families.
Batman: He has no family.
Robin: Okay, I'll make a deal with you. If we go out on patrol, and Gotham is quiet, with no sign of the Joker, we come back here, have Christmas dinner, and watch Kevin Costner.
Batman: You know, I've never seen that. I could never get past the title.
Robin: It's a deal then?
Batman: Deal.

BATMAN AND ROBIN PATROL GOTHAM CITY

THE CITY IS VERY QUIET AND CALM

Robin: Doesn't it warm your heart to see everyone in the spirit of Christmas? (Batman silently leaves) Oh, "Bah humbug" to you too!...You just can't believe there's no use for us for one night! 

THEY SPOT A MYSTERIOUS BLACK MAN APPROACHING AN OLD LADY

Batman: There! 

(Batman gets closer to the street)

"Mysterious Man": Hey lady, hold up! -- 
The movements of prehistoric man can be seen as yet but dimly in the uncertain mists of time. This is the story that to-day seems most probable: from some center in southern Asia primitive human beings began to differentiate in two directions. Toward the south appeared the primitive Negro, long-headed and with flattened hair follicle. He spread along southern Asia and passed over into Africa, where he survives to-day as the reddish dwarfs of the center and the Bushmen of South Africa. Northward and eastward primitive man became broader headed and straight-haired and spread over eastern Asia, forming the Mongolian type. Either through the intermingling of these two types or, as some prefer to think, by the direct prolongation of the original primitive man, a third intermediate type of human being appeared with hair and cranial measurement intermediate between the primitive Negro and Mongolian. All these three types of men intermingled their blood freely and developed variations according to climate and environment. Other and older theories and legends of the origin and spread of mankind are of interest now only because so many human beings have believed them in the past. The biblical story of Shem, Ham, and Japheth retains the interest of a primitive myth with its measure of allegorical truth, but has, of course, no historic basis.You dropped this package a couple of blocks back! 

(Gives the lady her package)

"Old Lady": Oh; It's for my grandson! Thanks, so much! (kisses the man in the cheek) Merry Christmas!
Robin: Now, can we go home? (Batman leaves silently, again) He could give lessons to Scrooge!

BACK IN WAYNE MANOR

Alfred: The Christmas' goose will be ready shortly.
Bruce: Y'know, we really should have done one more sweep of the city.
Dick: Now just relax, Bruce. You're gonna love 'Kevin Costner'; it's a great movie.
Bruce: It's not relentlessly cheerful, is it?
Dick: No, it's about how much of a difference one man can make to a city. Sound familiar?

DICK TURNS THE TV ON AND A MORALLY QUESTIONABLE SHOW IS AIRING ON ALL THE CHANNELS

Dick: Aahh...wrong channel...some kind of Christmas Special...(keeps changing channels)
Narrator (Jocker): "Kevin Costner" will not be seen this year. In it's place is the following:

THE BRIDGE IS DESTROYED WITH EXPLOSIVES BY DONNER AND BLITZEN

BATMAN CUTS THE SIGNAL FROM THE TV ON THE BATMOBILE

Batman: We've isolated the signal from Joker's broadcast. It's coming from the Observatory in Mount Gotham. 

BATMAN AND ROBIN ARRIVE AT THE OBSERVATORY

Batman: (They spot a giant gift) There! The radar antenna.
Robin: What's that?
Batman: Careful, Robin. I'm sure there's more to this than meets the eye.

A GIANT CLOWN IN THE BOK COMES OUT OF THE GIFT

Joker: Merry Christmas, Batman! I'm so glad you could join us.
Batman: What's your game, Joker?
Joker: Oh, just a little holiday entertainment, Batman! -- I'm sure all the folks at home will enjoy sharing this special occasion. -- Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Live, from the top of Mount Gotham. The death of Batman! -- (Cannon starts shooting at Batman and Robin) When you care enough, to send a very blast! - We'll return in just a moment, but first a word from our sponsor!

Batman: Robin! Try and get inside the observatory, I'll draw its fire. 

BATMAN MAKES THE CANNON DESTROY THE ANTENNA FROM JOKER'S BROADCAST

Joker: Oops! Looks like we're experiencing technical difficulties...but don't worry folks; we're still on the air. -- Oh no! Our cannon seems to be out of control! Gotham City could be in serious danger! (Cannon starts shooting everywhere in the city)

IN WAYNE MANOR, BRUCE AND DICK FINISH "KEVIN COSTNER"

Alfred: It was nice of Commissioner Gordon to give you that recording of "Kevin Costner".
Dick: And it is a wonderful movie.
Bruce: (Wiping tears from his eye) It...has its moments.

LOCKED IN HIS CELL IN ARKHAM ASYLUM WEARING A STRAIGHT JACKET

Joker: (singing "Tis The Season To Be Jolly in a mentally deranged way)---Merry Christmas....

(Roll credits to the song of Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody')

(2 minutes in the song fades into a soft instrumental loop in which Commisoner Gordon's head appears to deliver a lecture, as a film-goers credits bonus)

In all instances Batman is morally ambiguous. A private citizen taking the law into their own hands, causing bodily injury, property damage, etc because he, and he alone, believe his actions are what's right is debatable.
In the Dark Knight they turn up that dial a bit with the cell phone linkage imaging system. Lucius was dubious that using it at all was morally justified. After it was proven effective Batman gave him the choice to destroy the system. Once the technology had been created is it moral to destroy it when it could also be used to save someone in the future?
Is it acceptable to violate another county's laws in order to kidnap a suspect associated with a crime in this country? Are you just setting up future conflicts and problems for immediate gratification?
Was Batman’s use of physical violence against the Joker to find Rachel and Harvey justified when it was likely and shown to be true that he would just provide incorrect information? Most studies on torture show this to be true.
There are others but essentially Batman is always riding the edge of what's right and wrong. That's one of the compelling characteristics of his story. We imagine ourselves in those positions and how we might react.

(As the speech ends the final name rolls by, and pops out of the screen as a joker-in-the-box, indicating that maybe Joker is not actually defeated, but may still be up to his old tricks)
