I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

The Joker

Robin: [checking out the Batmobile] I want a car, chicks dig the car.
Batman: This is why Superman works alone.

The Joker: Where do we begin? A year ago, these cops and lawyers wouldn't dare cross any of you. I mean, what happened?
Gamble: So what are you proposing?
The Joker: It's simple: Kill the Batman.

Alfred Pennyworth: There's a problem with the graphite, sir. The next 10,000 will be up to specifications.
Bruce Wayne: Well, at least they gave us a discount.
Alfred Pennyworth: Quite so, sir. In the meantime, may I suggest you try to avoid landing on your head?

[to Rachel] You know that day you once told me about, when Gotham would no longer need Batman? It's coming.

Bruce Wayne

Rachel Dawes: I never stopped thinking about you... about us... when I heard you were back, I started to hope...
[Rachel kisses Bruce]
Rachel Dawes: That was before I found out about the mask.
Bruce Wayne: Batman's just a symbol, Rachel.
Rachel Dawes: [Rachel touches Bruce's face] *This* is your mask. Your real face is the one that criminals now fear. The man I loved - the man who vanished - he never came back at all. But maybe he's still out there, somewhere. Maybe one day, when Gotham no longer needs Batman, I'll see him again.

Tell your son it's going to be okay, Gordon. Lie, like I lied.

Harvey Dent

Bruce Wayne: I need a new suit.
Lucius Fox: Yes, three buttons is a little '90's, Mr. Wayne.

You'll see, I'll show you, that when the chips are down, these uh... civilized people, they'll eat each other.

The Joker

If you want to kill a public servant, Mr. Maroney, I suggest you buy American.

Harvey Dent

Harvey Dent: Rachel's told me everything about you.
Bruce Wayne: I certainly hope not.

And tonight, you're gonna break your one rule...
