[walking through the Batcave] In the Civil War, your great-great grandfather was involved in the underground railroad, secretly transporting free slaves to the North. And I suspect these caverns came in handy.

Alfred Pennyworth

Why do we fall, sir? So that we might better learn to pick ourselves up.

Alfred Pennyworth

Master Wayne, it's been a long time.

Alfred Pennyworth

Henri Ducard: Have you finally learned to do what is necessary?
Bruce Wayne: I won't kill you, but I don't have to save you.

Ignorance is bliss, my friend. Don't burden yourself with the secrets of scary people.

Carmine Falcone

Yeah, Doctor Crane, I can't take it anymore, it's all too much, the walls are closing in, blah, blah, blah. Couple more days of this food, it'll be true.

Carmine Falcone

Your father would be ashamed of you.

Rachel Dawes

Deep down you may still be that same great kid you used to be. But it's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you.

Rachel Dawes

Henri Ducard: Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share.
Bruce Wayne: That's why it's so important. It separates us from them.

Rachel Dawes: Who are you?
Batman: Someone like you. Someone who'll rattle the cages.

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?

Henri Ducard: When you lived among the criminals, did you start to pity them?
Bruce Wayne: The first time I stole so that I wouldn't starve, yes. I lost many assumptions about the simple nature of right and wrong. And when I traveled, I learned the fear before a crime and the thrill of success. But I never became one of them.
