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?

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

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

Your father would be ashamed of you.

Rachel Dawes

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.

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.

Batman Begins Quotes

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

Carmine Falcone
