Joker: And here… we… go!

Batman: Whatever doesn’t kill you, simply makes you stronger. 

Joker: I believe whatever doesn’t kill you, simply makes you stranger.

Alfred: …some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Batman: Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up

Batman: Our greatest glory is not in ever falling, but in rising every time we fall. 

Joker: Don’t talk like one of them. You’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak, like me! They need you right now, but when they don’t, they’ll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it’s a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. I’ll show you. When the chips are down, these… these civilized people, they’ll eat each other. See, I’m not a monster. I’m just ahead of the curve.

Joker: You see, in their last moments people show you who they really are.

Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Joker: Why so serious?

Man No. 1: What gives you the right?! What makes you different from the rest of us?

Batman/Bruce Wayne: I’m not wearing hockey pads.

Gambol: You’re just a freak in a cheap suit.

Joker: The suit, it ain’t cheap, you oughta know you bought it.

Harvey Dent: Carbon fibre, 28 calibre, Made in China, if you want to kill a public servant Mr Maroni, I recommend you buy American.

Alfred: Shall you be taking the Batpod sir?

Batman/Bruce Wayne: In the middle of the day Alfred?

Alfred: The Lamborghini then? Much more subtle.

Fat Thug: I don’t feel good.

Murphy: You’re a cop-killer, you’re lucky to be feeling anything below the neck!

Batman/Bruce Wayne: You’ll hunt me. You’ll condemn me, set the dogs on me. Because that’s what needs to happen. Because sometimes, truth isn’t good enough. Sometimes people deserve more to have their faith rewarded.

Harvey Dent: The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming.

Joker: This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren’t you? You won’t kill me out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness. And I won’t kill you because you’re just too much fun. I think you and I are destined to do this forever.

Batman: I have one power. I never give up.

Joker: We stopped checking for monsters under our bed when we realized they were inside us. 

Natascha: But this is a democracy, Harvey.

Harvey Dent: When their enemies were at the gates, the Romans would suspend democracy and appoint one man to protect the city, and it wasn’t considered an honor it was considered a public service.

Rachel Dawes: Harvey, the last man that they appointed to protect the republic was named Caesar and he never gave up his power.

Harvey Dent: Okay fine…you either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

Batman: It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

Batman: Everything’s impossible until somebody does it. 

Joker: You know what I’ve noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan”. Even if the plan is horrifying. If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like, a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan”. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!

Batman: But as a symbol, as a symbol I can be incorruptible. 

Alfred: You start pretending to have fun; you might even have a little by accident. 

Batman/Bruce Wayne: People are dying, Alfred. What would you have me do?

Alfred: Endure, Master Wayne. Take it. They’ll hate you for it, but that’s the point of Batman, he can be the outcast. He can make the choice that no one else can make, the right choice.

Batman/Bruce Wayne: Well today I found out what Batman can’t do. He can’t endure this. Today you get to say “I told you so.”

Alfred: Today, I don’t want to. But I did bloody tell you.

Batman: If you kill a killer, the number of killers in the room remains the same.

Batman: Sometimes it’s only madness that makes us what we are. 

Batman/Bruce Wayne: What about getting back into the plane?

Lucius Fox: I’d recommend a good travel agent.

Batman/Bruce Wayne: Without it landing.

Lucius Fox: Now that’s more like it, Mr. Wayne.

Rachel Dawes: We’ll never be able to link the gun to Maroni, so we won’t be able to charge him. But the fact they’re trying to kill you means we’re getting to them.

Harvey Dent: I’m glad you’re so pleased, Rachel. I’m fine, by the way.

Rachel Dawes: Come on, Harvey. You’re Gotham’s DA. If you’re not getting shot at for doing your job right.

Joker: How about a magic trick? I’m going to make this pencil disappear.

Gordon: Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. 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.
