Mr. Earle: "You're in excellent hands. We'll be watching the empire. When you grow up, it'll be waiting for you."


Police Officer: "Can you at least tell me what it looks like?" [Batmobile thunders by] "Never mind..."

Police Officer: [Trying to describe the Batmobile] "It's a black... tank!"

Thomas Wayne:: "And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up."

Thomas Wayne:: "Gotham's been good to our family. But the city's been suffering. People less fortunate than us have been enduring very hard times. So we built a new, cheap, public transportation system to unite the city. And at the center... Wayne Tower"

Thomas Wayne:: [last words] "Don't be afraid."

Alfred: Are you coming back for long, sir?
Bruce Wayne: As long as it takes. I want to show the people of Gotham that their city doesn't belong to the criminals and the corrupt.

Batman: [knocks on new Bat-signal] Nice.
Gordon: Couldn't find any mob bosses.
Batman: Well, Sergeant?
Gordon: Oh, it's lieutenant now. You really started something. Bent cops running scared, hope on the streets...
Batman: But?
Gordon: The Narrows is lost. And we still haven't picked up Crane or half the inmates of Arkham that he freed.
Batman: We will. We can bring Gotham back.
Gordon: And what about escalation?
Batman: Escalation?
Gordon: We start carrying semi-automatics, they buy automatics. We start wearing Kevlar...they buy armor-piercing rounds.
Batman: And?
Gordon: And you're wearing a mask... and jumping off rooftops. Now, take this new guy. Armed robbery, double homicide. Got a taste for the theatrical. Like you. Leaves a calling card. [hands Batman a Joker playing card]
Batman: I'll look into it. [walks to edge of roof]
Gordon: I never said thank you.
Batman: [turns around to look at Gordon] And you'll never have to.
[Batman spreads his cape and leaps off the roof]

Bruce Wayne: I wanted to save Gotham. I've failed.
Alfred: Why do we fall, Master Wayne? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Bruce: You still haven't given up on me, have you?
Alfred: Never.

Bruce Wayne: You're not Ra's al Ghul. I watched him die.
Henri Ducard: [from behind Bruce] But is Ra's al Ghul immortal? Are his methods supernatural?

Carmine Falcone: [muttering to himself] What the hell are you?
[Batman bursts through the sun roof of Falcone's limousine.]
Batman: I'm Batman.
[Batman headbutts Falcone into unconsciousness, then sees the Homeless Man he traded coats with years earlier]
Batman: Nice coat.
[He flies off; the Homeless Man stares after him]
Homeless Man: Thanks.

Ducard: Are you so desperate to fight criminals that you lock yourself in to take them on one at a time?
Bruce Wayne: Actually, uh, there were seven of them.
Ducard: I counted six, Mister Wayne.

Ducard: Compassion is not a quality your enemies will share.
Bruce Wayne: That's why it's so important. It separates us from them.

Ducard: Don't be afraid, Bruce. You're just an ordinary man in a cape. That's why you can't fight injustice, and that's why you can't stop this train.
Batman: Who said anything about stopping it?
[An explosion destroys the tracks ahead.]
Batman: [Overpowering Ducard] You never learned to mind your surroundings.
Ducard: Have you finally learned to do what is necessary?
Batman: I won't kill you. But I don't have to save you.

Ducard: If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, then you become something else entirely.
Bruce Wayne: Which is?
Ducard: A legend, Mister Wayne.
