Holy Rewatch Batman! "Marsha, Queen of Diamonds"/"Marsha's Scheme of Diamonds"
Batman gets married -- almost -- as the men go goofy for Carolyn Jones. The Bat-rewatch does "Marsha, Queen of Diamonds"/"Marsha's Scheme of Diamonds."

An excerpt:
There’s even a strong theme of devotion running through the two-parter: not just the artificial devotion prompted by the love darts, but the bonds between people who depend on each other. There’s Gordon’s dedication to O’Hara that has him beard the lion in his den alone to save him, Alfred and Harriet’s dedication to Batman that prompts them to stop the wedding with a fake first wife (complete with phony paperwork!), Hilda’s dedication to help her niece with her crime wave, the Grand Mogul’s like devotion to Marsha, and, of course, Batman’s devotion to Robin, for whom he will lay down his life (but not give up the secret of the Batcave’s location—hey, the line’s gotta be somewhere).
