" Never underestimate Gotham City. People get mugged on their way home every day of the week. Heh, sometimes...sometimes things just go bad."


"As long as he keeps the bad people rich and the good people scared, no one'll touch him. Good people like your parents,who'll stand against injustice, they're gone. What chance does Gotham have when good people do nothing?"

"Because you think you got nothing to lose. But you haven't thought it through. You haven't thought about your lady friend down in the DA's office. You haven't though about your old butler. BANG! People from your world have so much to lose. Now, you think, because your mommy and your daddy got shot, you know the ugly side of life, but you don't. You've never tasted desperate. You're... You're Bruce Wayne, The Prince of Gotham. You'd have to go a thousand miles to meet someone who didn't know your name. So don't come down here with your anger, trying to prove something to yourself. This is a world you'll never understand. And you always fear what you don't understand."

"But I know the rage that drives you. That impossible anger strangling the grief, until the memory of your loved one is just poison in your veins. And one day, you catch yourself wishing the person you loved had never existed so you'd be spared your pain."

"Crime cannot be tolerated. Criminals thrive on the indulgence of society's understanding."

"Death does not wait for you to be ready! Death is not considerate or fair. And make no mistake: here, you face death."

"Don't be afraid, Bruce. You're just an ordinary man in a cape. That is why you cannot fight injustice and that is why you cannot stop this train."

"Dr. Crane isn't here right now. But if you'd like to make an appointment..."

"Gentlemen, time to spread the word. And the word is panic!"

"Have you finally learned to do what is necessary?"

"He was a farmer. Then he tried to take his neighbor's land and became a murderer. Now he's a prisoner."

"I respect the mind's power over the body, it's why I do what I do"

"I spent a lot of time being scared for you. Then I heard you came back... the man I loved, the man who vanished...he never came back at all. Maybe one day, when Gotham no longer needs Batman, I'll see him again."

"If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal and if they can't stop you, you become something else entirely - legend, Mr Wayne."

"It's not who you are underneath, but what you do that defines you."
