One man is born a hero, his brother a coward. Babies starve, politicians grow fat. Holy men are martyred, and junkies grow legion. Why? Why, why, why, why, why? Luck! Blind, stupid, simple, doo-dah, clueless luck!


Dick Grayson: I need a name! Batboy, Nightwing, I dunno. What's a good sidekick name?
Bruce Wayne: How about Dick Grayson, college student?
Dick Grayson: Screw you!

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

[upon reaching Claw Island]
Robin: Holey rusted metal, Batman!
Batman: Huh?
Robin: The ground, it's all metal. It's full of holes. You know, holey.
Batman: Oh.

You were supposed to understand. I'll make you understand.

Edward Nygma

Why can't you just die?


Alfred Pennyworth: I prepared the master bedroom.
Bruce Wayne: No, my room will be fine.
Alfred Pennyworth: With all due respect sir, Wayne Manor is your house.
Bruce Wayne: It's not my house Alfred, it's my father's house.
Alfred Pennyworth: Your father is dead.
Bruce Wayne: This place is a mausoleum. If I had my will, I would tear it down brick by brick.
Alfred Pennyworth: This house, Master Wayne, was shelter to six generations of your family.
Bruce Wayne: Why do you give a damn, Alfred? It's not your family.
Alfred Pennyworth: I give a damn because a good man once made me responsible for what was most precious to him in the whole world.

Rachel Dawes: I guess there is no way I can convince you not to come.
Bruce Wayne: Someone in this proceeding should stand for my parents.
Rachel Dawes: We all loved your parents, Bruce. What Chill did is unforgivable.
Bruce Wayne: Then why is your boss letting him go?
Rachel Dawes: In prison, he shared a cell with Carmine Falcone, he learned things and will testify in exchange for early parole.
Bruce Wayne: Rachel, this man killed my parents. I cannot let that pass. And I need you to understand that, please.

Two-Face: What?
The Riddler: I hope you made extra.
Two-Face: Who the hell are you?
The Riddler: Just a friend. But you can call me... the Riddler.

Gang Leader: Who the hell are you?
Dick Grayson: I'm Batman.
[the gang laughs]
Dick Grayson: Hey, so I forgot my suit alright?

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.

The Penguin: You're coming with me, Mr. Chip Shreck, to die!
Maximillian 'Max' Shreck: Not Chip! Please! If you have one shred of human decency in you, you'll take me instead.
The Penguin: I don't, so no.
Maximillian 'Max' Shreck: Come on, aren't I the one you want? Max Shreck, the guy you really want to see immersed up to his eyeballs in raw sewage?
The Penguin: ...Okay, you got a point. I'll let the little prince live.
