This city deserves a better class of criminal and I'm gonna give it to them.

The Joker

The Joker: [to Rachel] A little fight in ya. I like that.
Batman: Then you're going to love me.

Why... so... serious?

The Joker

Let's put a smile on that face!

The Joker

Gotham National Bank Manager: The criminals in this town used to believe in things. Honor. Respect. Look at you! What do you believe in? What do you believe in!
The Joker: I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

[to Batman] You've changed things... forever. There's no going back. See, to them, you're just a freak... like me!

The Joker

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

The Joker

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

Bartender: Dent! Jesus, I thought you was dead!
Harvey Dent: Half...

Bruce Wayne: I knew the mob wouldn't go down without a fight. But this is different. They crossed the line.
Alfred Pennyworth: You crossed the line first, sir. You hammered them. And in their desperation they turned to a man they didn't fully understand. Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

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.
Christine Everheart: And a lot of people would also call that war-profiteering.

[to Raza] Technology. That's always been your Achilles heel in this part of the world.
