Haven't you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?

The Joker

Grissom: Your life won't be worth spit!
The Joker: I've been dead once already, its very liberating. You should think of it as therapy.
Grissom: Jack, maybe we can cut a deal.
The Joker: Jack?
The Joker: Jack is dead, my friend. You can call me Joker and as you can see I'm a lot happier.

The Joker: I recently had a tragedy in my life. Alicia...
[lays the mask that Alicia wore on the table]
The Joker: ... threw herself out the window.
Vicki Vale: Oh, my God...
The Joker: But, you can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs.
[breaks the mask and starts giggling]

Vicki Vale: [distracting Joker] Mr. Joker, you make such beautiful things... oh, you're so powerful, and... PURPLE! Oh, I love purple.
Batman: Excuse me.
[Joker looks]
Batman: Have you ever danced with the devil by the pale moon light?
[punches him]

Vicki Vale: I've just got to know. Are we gonna try and love each other?
Bruce Wayne: I'd like to. But he's out there right now. And I've got to go to work.

Vicki Vale: Some people think you're as dangerous as the Joker.
Batman: He's psychotic.
Vicki Vale: Some people say the same about you.
Batman: What people?
Vicki Vale: Well, face it. You're not exactly normal, are you?
Batman: This isn't exactly a normal world, is it?

Vicki Vale: What do you want?
The Joker: My face on the one dollar bill.
Vicki Vale: You must be joking.
The Joker: Do I look like I'm joking?

The Joker: Who's this loss?

Vicki Vale: Oh really!

Vicki Vale: What about your family?
Bruce Wayne: Actually, Alfred is my family.
Vicki Vale: You know, this house and all this stuff really doesn't seem like you at all.
Bruce Wayne: Some of it is very much me. Some of it isn't.

Alfred Pennyworth: Miss Vale telephoned. She was rather concerned. Dare I suggest that your present course of action might only strengthen her resolve. She is quite tenacious.
Bruce Wayne: You're right about that.
Alfred Pennyworth: And if I may say so, quite special. Perhaps you could try telling her the truth.

The Joker: Gotham City Cathedral, transportation for two.
Helicopter Goon: Right away, sir?
The Joker: Five minutes.
Helicopter Goon: Okay, five minutes.
[Joker raises his head to look at the top of the Cathedral]
