Happy: So why do they call him "The Joker"?
Dopey: I heard he wears make-up.
Happy: Make-up?
Dopey: Yeah, to scare people. You know, war paint.

This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

The Joker

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.

Bruce Wayne: People are dying. What would you have me do?
Alfred Pennyworth: Endure. You can be the outcast. You can make the choice that no one else will face - the right choice. Gotham needs you.

Why don't we cut you up into little pieces and feed you to your pooches? Hmm? And then we'll see how loyal a hungry dog really is. It's not about money. It's about sending a message.

The Joker

The only justice in an unfair world is chance.

Harvey Dent

Spying on 30 million people is not part of my job description.

Lucius Fox

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're good at something, never do it for free.

The Joker

Alfred Pennyworth: I suppose they'll take me in as well, as your accomplice.
Bruce Wayne: Accomplice? I'm going to say the whole thing was your idea.

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

Bruce Wayne: What about getting back into the plane?
Lucius Fox: Well I suggest you find a good travel agent.
Bruce Wayne: Without it landing.
Lucius Fox: [smiles] Now that's more like it Mr. Wayne.
