John Blake: Don't you want to know who he is?
Jim Gordon: I know exactly who he is; he's The Batman.

I knew Harvey Dent. I was his friend. And it will be a very long time before someone inspires us the way he did. I believed in Harvey Dent.

Jim Gordon: We were in this together, and then you were gone. Now this evil...rises. The Batman has to come back.
Bruce Wayne: What if he doesn't exist any more?
Jim Gordon: He must. He must.

Dent is in there with them! We have to save Dent! I have to save Dent!

Lt. James Gordon

[speaking to Harvey Dent] I don't get political points for being an idealist... I have to do the best I can with what I have.

Lt. James Gordon

Lt. James Gordon: It's a shame Sal's going to walk.
Harvey Dent: Yeah, well, the good thing about the mob is they keep giving you second chances.

Lt. James Gordon: We'll have to hunt you.
Batman: You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me, you'll set the dogs on me. But that's what has to happen.

Bruce Wayne: Do you think I should go to the hospital?
Lt. James Gordon: You don't watch the news very much do you?

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.

Lt. James Gordon

Mayor: [regarding The Joker] What do we got?
Lt. James Gordon: Nothing. No name, no other alias. Clothing is... custom. Nothing in his pockets but knives and lint.
