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

The Joker

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.

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

You want to save your own life, but you don't know how to take one. Give it to someone who knows how to take one. Give me the damn thing so I can do what you shoulda did ten minutes ago.

Tattooed Prisoner

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?

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.

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.

Bruce Wayne: I'll look into it.
[turns away from Gordon and walks toward the rooftop ledge]
Jim Gordon: I never got to say, "Thank you."
Bruce Wayne: [looks back to Gordon] And you'll never have to.

[first lines]
Alfred Pennyworth: Can I persuade you to take a sandwich with you, sir?
Batman: I'll get drive-thru.

Bruce Wayne: How will it hold up against dogs?
Lucius Fox: We talking Rottweilers or Chihuahuas? Should do fine against cats.

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

The Joker

Alfred Pennyworth: Are you coming back to Gotham for long, sir?
Bruce Wayne: As long as it takes. I'm gonna show the people of Gotham that their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt.
Alfred Pennyworth: In the depression, your father nearly bankrupted Wayne Enterprises combating poverty. He believed his example could inspire the wealthy of Gotham to save their city.
Bruce Wayne: Did it?
Alfred Pennyworth: In a way. Their murders shocked the wealthy and the powerful into action.
Bruce Wayne: People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can't do that as Bruce Wayne, as a man I'm flesh and blood I can be ignored I can be destroyed but as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.
Alfred Pennyworth: What symbol?
Bruce Wayne: Something elemental, something terrifying.
Alfred Pennyworth: I assume that as you're taking on the underworld, this symbol is a persona to protect those you care about from reprisals.
Bruce Wayne: You thinking about Rachel?
Alfred Pennyworth: Actually, sir, I was thinking about myself.
