Batman: You killed my parents.
The Joker: What? What? What are you talking about?
Batman: I made you, you made me first.
The Joker: Give me a break. I was a kid when I killed your parents. When I say "I made you" you gotta say "you made me." How childish can you get?

Rotelli: What's with that stupid grin?
The Joker: Life's been good to me.

Batman: I'm going to kill you!
The Joker: You IDIOT! You made me. Remember? You dropped me into that vat of chemicals. That wasn't easy to get over, and don't think that I didn't try.
Batman: I know you did.
[punches him again]

Batman: Let me tell you about this guy I know. Jack. Mean kid. Bad seed. Hurt people.
The Joker: I like him already.

The Joker: Gotham City Cathedral, transportation for two.
Helicopter Goon: Right away, sir?
The Joker: Five minutes.
Helicopter Goon: Okay, five minutes.
[Joker raises his head to look at the top of the Cathedral]
The Joker: Better make it ten.

The Joker: Who's this loss?
Bob the Goon: This is Knox, the reporter.
The Joker: Bad tie.

Vicki Vale: What do you want?
The Joker: My face on the one dollar bill.
Vicki Vale: You must be joking.
The Joker: Do I look like I'm joking?

The Joker: I recently had a tragedy in my life. Alicia...
[lays the mask that Alicia wore on the table]
The Joker: ... threw herself out the window.
Vicki Vale: Oh, my God...
The Joker: But, you can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs.
[breaks the mask and starts giggling]

Grissom: Your life won't be worth spit!
The Joker: I've been dead once already, its very liberating. You should think of it as therapy.
Grissom: Jack, maybe we can cut a deal.
The Joker: Jack?
The Joker: Jack is dead, my friend. You can call me Joker and as you can see I'm a lot happier.

Haven't you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?
