Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.

[referring to his model city]
Howard Stark: I built this for you, this represents more than people's inventions,this represents more than my life's work,limited by the technology of my time, I turn this over to you, with this you can change the future, what has always been and always will be my greatest creation is you Tony.

Tony Stark: My old man had a philosophy. Peace means having a bigger stick than the other guy.
Christine Everheart: That's a great line, coming from a guy selling the sticks.
Tony Stark: My father helped defeat Nazis. He worked on the Manhattan Project. A lot of people, including your professors at Brown, would call that being a hero.

Ra's al Ghul: As you wish.
