I don’t think he’s just talking about the disease there when he says “gross.”

Speaking of the giant cash register, there’s a really cute story about it in the backup to Gotham Knights #46. :)
- Nightwing Year One/Nightwing 106
The giant typewriter? It’s from Batman 115 (1958) where Batman and Robin are battling giants. A somewhat similar case is a giant cash register in a giant house from Batman 62 ( dec 1950 - jan 1951).
From Detective Comics #237 (November 1956)
"The Search for a New Robin" is actually a rather lame story. However, I do want to point out a few things:
-the mere thought of never working with Dick again drives Bruce to an extreme emotional reaction. Sighs and sobs are not uncommon for Robin in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, but Bruce almost never expresses such emotions. That was, after all, Robin’s job. So for Bruce to >choke!< here is a big deal. That’s love.
-Bruce is pulling a Clark Kent with the glasses. Haha.
-Bruce misses his well-behaved boy. You gotta admit: back in the day, Dick was pretty much a dream child. There’s one storyline where he moves out for a hot second (it’s a 60s story about not trusting anyone over 30), but beyond that? He was such a good little boy.
"There’ll never be another Robin!" *Sob* Until Bruce goes grim-dark and starts firing people.
