No, Master Bruce. I expect you to run.

So, this post is slightly out of the usual, but it was so clever that I HAD to share it.

I’ll be honest, I don’t watch the Gotham TV series. I sometimes see glimpses of it on TV, but mostly I’ve learned about it through things people post on Tumblr. The show is essentially a crime drama, but it is set in the Batman comic book universe shortly after Bruce Wayne’s parent’s are murdered and long before he dons the cape and cowl.

I saw this post on Tumblr which captures a scene from a recent episode and it spoke to me on several levels: Firstly because it’s a nice little origins bit about Batman. Secondly, because it’s a snarky conversation about running. And it’s MEMEtastic!

 

Now I clocked Wayne Manor at exactly six and a half miles, it should take 90 minutes to 2 hours depending on how many times you stop of course. You said you wanted to train, to prepare.
Well, this is it. Wait you... you expect me to walk?
No, Master Bruce. I expect you to run. *drives away*

 

Transcript:

[Alfred]: Now I clocked Wayne Manor at exactly six and a half miles, it should take 90 minutes to 2 hours depending on how many times you stop of course.

[Alfred]: You said you wanted to train, to prepare.

[Alfred]: Well, this is it.

[Bruce]: Wait you… you expect me to walk?

[Alfred]: No, Master Bruce. I expect you to run.

[Alfred drives off leaving Bruce in a small cloud of exhaust]

 

The zinger line reminds me of that famous quip from Goldfinger.

Also, 6.5 miles is a little over 10km. Two hours, Alfred? That’s generous :p
