INT. INTERROGATION ROOM A Commissioner Gordon and an officer enter the interrogation room. COMMISSIONER GORDON (reading from file) Wiggles the Clown, brought in for for drunk and disorderly at a child's birthday party. Disgusting. What do you have to say to yourself? Reveal that the suspect is THE JOKER. THE JOKER Evening, Commissioner... COMMISSIONER GORDON What the hell? POLICE OFFICER Sir, that's... COMMISSIONER GORDON I know who it is. THE JOKER Do you want to know how I got these scars? COMMISSIONER GORDON That means Batman... Oh my God. INT. INTERROGATION ROOM B We see WIGGLES THE CLOWN sitting in the dark. The lights come on revealing BATMAN standing behind Wiggles. Batman SLAMS Wiggles' head on the table. WIGGLES What the shit?! God! (then) My head feels fuzzy... Batman PUNCHES Wiggles' hand. Wiggles SCREAMS. Batman sits down. BATMAN You wanted me, here I am. WIGGLES I don't want you! Who are you?! BATMAN Where's Dent? WIGGLES My head. I can't see color. (then) I think you broke my balloon-tying hand. INT. HALLWAY - CONTINUOUS We see Gordon and the officer scrambling for the KEYS to Interrogation A. COMMISSIONER GORDON C'mon... c'mon... INT. INTERROGATION ROOM A - CONTINUOUS BATMAN You're garbage who kills for money. WIGGLES What? I'm Wiggles! My name is Wiggles! Batman PULLS WIGGLES ACROSS THE TABLE by the collar. BATMAN Where's Dent? WIGGLES I don't know! I was hired by Leo Bonner. For his son's birthday. I do close-up magic! Batman throws Wiggles against the wall. INT.

INTERROGATION ROOM B - CONTINUOUS BATMAN I have one rule. WIGGLES I'm sorry! It was two beers and a glass of sherry!! I'll never do it again! Batman FLIPS Wiggles and throws his back onto the table. Batman rushes over and puts a chair under the door to the room, blocking it. We see Gordon unable to get in the room. WIGGLES Jesus! My back. Oh my God, my back. Batman picks up Wiggles by the head and SMASHES it into the glass. BATMAN WHERE ARE THEY?! WIGGLES Who? Oh my god, who? Batman PUNCHES Wiggles, hard. BATMAN WHERE ARE THEY?! WIGGLES I don't know! I just don't know! Batman PUNCHES Wiggles, again. Finally Gordon gets the door open. COMMISSIONER GORDON Batman! Wait! This is a birthday clown. The Joker is in the other room. A long, awkward beat.
