We are for aiding our allies by sharing some of our material blessings with those nations which share in our fundamental beliefs, but we are against doling out money government to government, creating bureaucracy, if not socialism, all over the world. We set out to help 19 countries. We are helping 107 We spent $146 billion. With that money, we bought a 2-million-dollar yacht for Haile Selassie. We bought dress suits for Greek undertakers, extra wives for Kenya government officials. We bought a thousand TV sets for a place where they have no electricity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Betty Graham:
Oh, Dad, this is getting monotonous! Every year we do the same thing. We go to Saratoga, we go to Newport, then we come to Glencove for the yacht races.



William Graham:
Well, I always win.

Sabrina Fairchild:
[narrating] Once upon a time, on the north shore of Long Island, some 30 miles from New York, there lived a small girl on a large estate. The estate was very large indeed and had many servants. There were gardeners to take care of the gardens, and a tree surgeon on a retainer. There was a boatman to take care of the boats: to put them in the water in the spring, and scrape their bottoms in the winter. There were specialists to take care of the grounds: the outdoor tennis court and the indoor tennis court, the outdoor swimming pool and the indoor swimming pool. And there was a man of no particular title who took care of a small pool in the garden for a goldfish named George. Also on the estate, there was a chauffeur by the name of Fairchild, who had been imported from England, years ago, together with a new Rolls Royce. Fairchild was a fine chauffeur of considerable polish, like the eight cars in his care, and he had a daughter by the name of Sabrina. It was the eve of the annual six meter yacht races, and as had been tradition on Long Island for the past 30 years, the Larrabees were giving a party. It never rained on the night of the Larrabee party, the Larrabees wouldn't have stood for it. There were four Larrabees in all: father, mother and two sons. Maude and Oliver Larrabee were married in nineteen hundred and six and among their many wedding presents was a townhouse in New York and this estate for weekends. The town house has since been converted into Saks Fifth Avenue. Linus Larrabee, the elder son, graduated from Yale, where his classmates voted him the man Most Likely to Leave his Alma Mater Fifty Million Dollars. His brother, David, went through several of the best eastern colleges for short periods of time, and through several marriages for even shorter periods of time. He is now a successful six-goal polo player, and is listed on Linus's tax return as a six hundred dollar deduction. Life was pleasant among the Larrabees, for this was as close to heaven as one could get on Long Island.

Sugar:
[on the yacht Junior's pretending he owns] Which is the port and which is the starboard?



Junior:
Well that depends. That depends on whether you're coming or going. I mean, *normally*, normally, the aft is on the other side of the stern. But - And that's the bridge, so you can get from one side of the boat to the other.

[Rocky and Bullwinkle have brought an old model ship to an antique dealer]



Rocky:
Bullwinkle, this ship is covered in rubies and look what's written on the side! O-Mar Khay-yam. Bullwinkle, do you know what this is?



Bullwinkle:
Well, if you're waiting on me to say it, I won't.

Me neither.

Alexis Davis Cassadine:
Most district attorneys would opt to prevent a murder, instead of waiting for the murder to occur so they could arrest the perpetrator.



Ric Lansing:
Really? And you would have handled it differently.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
I would have had the police on board the yacht before it docked.



Ric Lansing:
Of course.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
Jax told you Faith shot him. You had plenty of evidence to arrest her.



Ric Lansing:
Well, maybe that's why I had officers on the scene - to make sure that she wouldn't be harmed.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
What if there had been another ship in the vicinity? Innocent people could have - could have been killed when that yacht exploded.



Ric Lansing:
There is no way that I could have known that Faith was going to sabotage the yacht.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
You knew she was psychotic. You took an unacceptable risk.



Ric Lansing:
All right, you know what? Here we are, right on schedule. For five minutes, you actually might have felt something for me. And that is just intolerable isn't it, Alexis, huh? Time to rebuild those walls.convince yourself that you don't want me to get close. That way, you can assure yourself that you were right all along. Right? I'm a repugnant, intolerable - what - what is the last one that you like to use? Complete waste of skin.



Alexis Davis Cassadine:
You put innocent people at risk when you bend the law to suit your own purposes. How many people who get close to you run the risk of being used in your campaign against your brother?

[Opening narration]



Narrator:
This yacht is bringing a revolutionary scientific invention to Gotham City. On a peaceful afternoon motor ride, millionaire Bruce Wayne and his youthful ward Dick Grayson have been summoned back to Wayne Manor by an urgent but anonymous call for help; the invention AND its custodian are reported in grave danger aboard the yacht! Never ones to shirk responsibility, Bruce and Dick, with characteristic speed and resolve, descend promptly into The Batcave, and then, as they have done many times before, as BATMAN AND ROBIN, courageous warriors against crime, they are off once again to the rescue!

Commissioner Gordon:
A fine job, Batman. You allayed their fears magnificently.



Batman:
What else could I have done, commissioner? If I told the truth, panic will grip the city.



Chief O'Hara:
The truth. Sure, and what is the truth?



Batman:
A decoy. A strange anonymous warning that Commodore Schmidlapp is in danger, to lure me into a trap.



Commissioner Gordon:
A fiendish attempt on Batman's life.



Chief O'Hara:
You mean, when they were luring you to a watery grave, the commodore's yacht has been hijacked in some places?



Batman:
Precisely.



Commissioner Gordon:
And who behind it? Not a clue.



Batman:
Tell me, commissioner: What known supercriminals are at large just now?



Commissioner Gordon:
I'll check at once, Batman. Bonnie, let's have the latest status report on super criminals still at large.



Bonnie:
Yes, commissioner.



Commissioner Gordon:
Thank you, Bonnie. Coming up, Batman, on the closed-circuit TV screen. Come over here.


[the quartet move to the closed-circuit TV screen on the wall]



Closed Circuit TV Screen:
Status report. Known supercriminals not currently imprisoned.



Batman:
The Penguin.



Commissioner Gordon:
That pompous, waddling master of foul play, maestro of the criminal uprunners.



Robin:
The Joker.



Chief O'Hara:
Devilishly clown prince of crime! If I only had a nickle for every time he's baffled us!



Commissioner Gordon:
What, the Riddler loose too?



Batman:
So it seems. Loose to plague us with his criminal conundrums.



Robin:
Gosh! And the Catwoman!



Closed Circuit TV Screen:
End of status report.

Tsar Nicholas II:
I suddenly thought of the yacht this morning. Do you remember how the band used to play all the time?



Tsarina Alexandra:
Always out of tune. Do you think they drank?



Tsar Nicholas II:
How did that waltz go?


[hums a little, off key]



Tsarina Alexandra:
You're no better than the band.


[he carries her to the bed and places a chair against the door]



Tsarina Alexandra:
The girls?



Tsar Nicholas II:
They won't come in. We're alone.


[he takes his wife's hands]



Tsar Nicholas II:
Your beautiful hands...


[he lies down with her]



Tsar Nicholas II:
I still want you so much. Nothing can ever change that, Sunny.

Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
[Grant has just arrived at the hospital; she doesn't know he's right outside, behind a one-way mirror] ... You mean to tell me that I have no medical recourse...?



Grant Stayton:
Can she see us?



Cop at Hospital:
Not unless she's got x-ray vision or something.



Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
...Well, what DO you know? Extend your brain a teensy little bit, if possible.



Doctor at Hospital:
You seem to be suffering from a temporary amnesia...



Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
How TEMPORARY is it?



Doctor at Hospital:
We don't know. Other than that, you seem to be in excellent physical shape.



Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
Listen to me, medical people. As of now, I have a life history of a DIRTY garbage scow and a breakfast of EXTREMELY RUNNY eggs-over-easy. Now I REFUSE to be INCARCERATED in this semiprivate room -


[turns to the only other patient in the room]



Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
You SNORE! - while there are no efforts being made by anyone to try and locate...!



Cop at Hospital:
[to Grant, still outside Joanna's room] ... Is that your wife, sir?



Joanna Stayton/Annie Proffitt:
...I DEMAND you do something! Do you hear me...?



Grant Stayton:

Dee Dee:
Missed the boat, I'm afraid!

Jordan Price:
Turn the yacht around!



Chucko:
Detox, bossman. We're here to talk business.



Ghoul:
We'll be quick. Woof gets seasick easy.


[Woof walks in front of Ghoul looking nauseous]



Jordan Price:
Our business is concluded.


[Batman flies to the window of the yacht and puts his finger on the window to listen in]



Jordan Price:
I gave you the security codes so you could ransack the lab while those bunglers tried to kill Wayne.



Chucko:
Word is Wayne's terminal anyhow.



Dee Dee:
That means you get to stay top dog.



Dee Dee:
And everyone's happy.



Jordan Price:
So why are you here?



Chucko:
The big guy who put us all in contact has decided you're a loose end.



Ghoul:
And loose ends should be tied up.



Ghoul:
[Jordan Price, seeing that they want to kill him, heads for the door, Woof gets in the way and sends Jordan Pryce to the opposite wall with a jump kick. Ghoul then handcuffs him to a table]


[Through an intercom]



Ghoul:
Got him!



The Joker:
Then amscray pronto, kiddies.


[Pushes a button on a control panel and you see a 30 second timer show on the panel]



The Joker:
Things are going to start popping.



Chucko:
Let's go!



Batman:
[Batman breaks in through a window] No one's leaving until I get answers.



Chucko:
[Ghoul breaks open another window with his pumpkin. Woof growls and prepares to attack, but Chucko stops him by giving him a light tug on the ear] No, you idiot, not now!


[They all jump out the window with Batman peering out and sees them leaving on hover cars, he is about to chase them when he sees a blue light appear from above. He runs back into the room]



Jordan Price:
They're getting away!


[Batman breaks the handcuffs]



Batman:
Yeah. And I think they've got a good reason.

Terry McGinnis:
Wait... Joker smashed up the cases. But why was this the only costume he went out of his way to destroy?



Bruce Wayne:
Robin did shoot him.



Terry McGinnis:
A ghost out for revenge? I don't buy it. I've talked with Drake. He's got less love for that costume than the Joker. I think somehow he's behind this.



Bruce Wayne:
That's crazy.



Terry McGinnis:
So was Drake, once. Look. Here's a readout of everything the Jokerz have stolen. Now let's combine them into something that would be used by a communications expert. Someone of Tim Drake's caliber.



Bruce Wayne:
[the objects on the computer screen moves together into a strange device] Satellite jamming system. Whoever uses this can access satellite defenses and fire them at will.



Terry McGinnis:
Someone already has. I suspected Jordan Pryce of being the Joker. But the Jokerz were on your company yacht trying to slag Pryce. I got him off the boat before someone blasted it into splinters. I hate to say it but I think your Robin has turned into a bitter old crow. He's gotta be the brains behind this new Joker. It's harsh. But who else is there?

Paris:
Ladies, thank you for seeing me. I know you're busy with work and have families to get home to, so I really appreciate your courtesy, and I'll make it brief. Having Grad Night on a yacht is the worst idea since Neville Chamberlain told the people of England, "Hey, don't worry about Hitler. He's a stand-up chap." Forget the inconvenience of being at sea with guests unable to leave if the party is dull or if the band, which will inevitably be composed of accountants with semi-mullets, decides to do a half-hour tribute to Kenny G. The seasickness factor alone, abetted by snuck-in flasks and badly cooked food, could lead to an epidemic, which may lead to lawsuits the school could ill afford. These points conclusively call for a change in venue to a hotel ballroom, a restaurant facility, several of which I've already called. Here are the results of my research. I've also included a list of maritime disasters from the past fifty years - capsizings, onboard fires, et cetera - and trust me, it'll put you off your lunch. Thank you for your time and cooperation.

Elinor Glyn:
[at the beginning at the funeral] In November of 1924 during a weekend yacht party bound for San Diego a mysterious death occurred within the Hollywood community. However there was no coverage in the press, no police action, and of the 14 passengers on board only one was ever questioned by authorities. Little evidence exists now or existed at the time to support any version of those events. History has been written in whispers, and this is the whisper told most often. The yacht you see belonged to William Randolph Hearst. Only in a place like this do reporters and autograph hounds have absolutely no scruples about stampeding mourners at a funeral. Welcome to Hollywood, a place just off the coast of planet Earth. After we all leave the man in the box will disappear, just his ashes will remain, after all its fire that can hurt you, not ashes.

I am not a yachting person, by nature, but I have just enough experience on the sea under sail to feel a certain nostalgia for it when I see a big white racing yacht heeled over at cruising speed on the ocean, and I can still tie a mean bowline knot on just about anything in less than 10 seconds.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

When a party can't think of anything else they always fall back on Lower Taxes. It has a magic sound to a voter, just like Fairyland is spoken of and dreamed of by all children. But no child has ever seen it; neither has any voter ever lived to see the day when his taxes were lowered.
