Tourist Dad: I'm sorry, this is my cab.
Tourist Dad: Listen, I was here first!
Tourist Dad: Oh, God! Oh, taxi? Taxi!
On the rooftop of the Gotham City Cathedral, one of the Joker's henchmen knocks Batman down the stairwell. There is an overhead shot, and even though a bell's yoke is there, no bell is present, supposedly because the Joker made the bell fall all the way down to the bottom a few minutes earlier. A few seconds later, the bell is there, and the henchman and Batman ram each other into it.
The opening credits appear as the camera goes through/around a giant Batman symbol.
