Bruce: I know who you are. Let me tell you about this guy I know, Jack. Mean kid, bad seed, hurt people.
Joker: I like him already. (laughs)
Bruce: You know what the problem was? He got sloppy, then crazy. He started to lose it. He had a head full of bad wiring, I guess. Couldn't keep him straight up here. He was a kind of guy who couldn't hear a train until it was two feet from him. You know what happens now, Jack? Well, he made mistakes and he ended WITH HIS LIGHTS OUT!! YOU WANNA GET NUTS?!! COME ON, LET'S GET NUTS!!
Joker: Tell me something, my friend. Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Bruce: What?
Joker: I always ask that to all my prey. I just like the sound of it.
[Joker shoots Bruce]


[Vickie sits down while Bruce stands, nervous. He wants to tell her something, but he's not sure how to say it.]
Bruce Wayne: You know my life is really complex. You know how a normal person gets up... and goes downstairs and... eats breakfast... kisses somebody goodbye [Bruce stares off in the distance, but his arms move as if to kiss someone goodbye], and... goes to a job [he makes a pushing motion with his hands, as if someone going out a door], and... [hrmmph]... you know?
Vicki Vale: No.

Joker: Have you shipped a million of those things?!
Scientist at Axis Chemical Factory: Yes, sir.
Joker: Ship 'em all! We're gonna take 'em out a whole new door!

Boss Carl Grissom: Is that you sugar bumps? [turns around to see Joker in the doorway]. Who the hell are you?
Joker: It's me. "Sugar bumps".
Grissom': Jack? Oh, thank God you're alive! I heard you been...
Joker: Fried? Is that what you heard? You set me up over a woman. A WOMAN!!! You must be insane. [Laughs]
[Grissom reaches for a gun]
Joker:(Pulls out gun) Don't bother.
Grissom: Your life won't be worth SPIT!
Joker: I've been dead once already. It's very liberating. You should think of it as...therapy. (steps forward)
Grissom: Jack, listen...maybe we can cut a deal.
Joker: Jack? Jack is dead, my friend. You can call me... [steps into the light to reveal his gruesome grin] Joker. And as you can see, I'm a lot happier. [Laughs]

Bruce: What's on your mind, Alfred?
Alfred: I have no wish to spend my few remaining years grieving for the loss of old friends. Or their sons.

Batman: I tried to save you.
Joker: You idiot! You made me, remember? You dropped me into that vat of chemicals. That wasn't easy to get over, and don't think that I didn't try!
Batman: I know you did. [punches Joker in the stomach]

Alexander Knox: Lieutenant, is there a six-foot bat in Gotham City? And, if so, is he on the police payroll? And, if so, what's he pulling down, after taxes?

Alexander Knox: (upon seeing a strange, wooden suit of armor in Wayne's display hall) Check this out! He must have been "King of the Wicker People!"

Batman: He's psychotic.
Vickie: There are some people who say the samething about you.
Batman: What people?
Vickie: Well lets face it, you're not exactly..."normal" are you?
Batman: It's not exactly a "normal" world, is it?

Anchorwoman: Six new deaths, with no clues to the Joker's deadly weapon.
Anchorman: And what is the pattern? Food, alcohol, or beauty and hygeine product? Cologne, mouthwash, underarm deodorant?
Anchorwoman: Or worse yet, there maybe no pattern. The search goes on through Gotham's shopping nightmare.

Harvey Dent: We've received a letter from Batman this morning. "Please inform the citizens of Gotham that Gotham City has earned a rest from crime. But if the forces of evil should rise again to cast a shadow on the heart of the city, call me."
Alexander Knox: Question: How do we call him?
Commissioner Gordon: He gave us a signal!

That luscious tan, those ruby lips, and hair color so natural, only your undertaker knows for sure. I know what you're saying: where could I find these brand, new item? That's the gag. Chances are, you bought them already!

Alexander Knox: You know what they say? They say he can't be killed. They say he drinks blood. They say...
Lieutenant Eckhardt: And I say you're full of shit, Knox. Oh, uh, you can quote me on that.

I saw it! I was there. I saw it all. He reached up with his dead hand and he signed it in his own blood. ...and he did it with this pen. Hello, Vinny. It's your Uncle Bingo. Time to pay the check.

Grissom: Jack, it's an important job. I need someone I can trust. You.. are my number one.. guy!
