Money in the Milk Machine
These were the second pair of episodes to feature Cesar Romero as The Joker.

Dick Grayson: Juvenile Delinquent

In these episodes The Joker is released from prison, and buys a coin-operated machine company that makes things like pinball games, jukeboxes, and beverage and snack dispensers.  He rigs the machines at Dick Grayson's high school to dispense money, stocks and bonds instead of milk and candy bars.  For instance, insert a dime in the milk machine, and instead of a bottle of milk, you'll get $20 worth of silver dollars.  By doing this, The Joker hopes to dissuade the students form studying and working hard, and instead enjoy "easy living" which will eventually lead them to a life of crime.  It's up to Batman to convince the students that "nothing in life is free."  Meanwhile, Dick Grayson goes undercover as a juvenile delinquent in order to infiltrate The Joker's gang.

Batman and the Head Cheerleader

Robin's exclamations in these episodes included "holy magician," holy Las Vegas," "holy fruit salad," "holy alphabet," "holy ball and chain," "holy Benedict Arnold," "holy hailstorm," "holy murder," and "holy New Years Eve."  Additionally, the narrator chimes in with "holy cow-juice."
