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]

Gordon: The Narrows is tearing itself to pieces.
Batman: This is just the beginning. If they hit the whole city with toxins, there's nothing to stop Gotham from tearing itself apart through mass panic.
Gordon: How are they gonna do that?
Batman: They'll be using the train. The monorail follows the water mains along Gotham's central hub beneath Wayne Tower. If they get their machine into the station, it'll cause a chain reaction that'll vaporize the city's entire water supply.
Gordon: Covering Gotham in this poison.
Batman: I'm gonna stop them from loading that train, but I may need your help.
Gordon: What do you need?
Batman: [holds up the Batmobile remote] Can you drive stick?

[After the Batmobile runs through a police cruiser]
Officer: He is in a vehicle.
Dispatch: Make and color?
Officer: Uhh, it's a black.................tank.

Gordon: [hearing bat sounds] What's that?
Batman: Backup.

[In Gordon's Office]
Batman: (holds Gordon up with a gun)Don't turn around. You're a good cop, one of the few.
Gordon: What do you want?
Batman: Carmine Falcone brings in shipments of drugs every week. Nobody takes him down. Why?
Gordon: He's paid up with the right people.
Batman: What would it take to bring him down?
Gordon: Leverage on Judge Fayden, and a DA brave enough to prosecute.
Batman: Rachel Dawes.
Gordon: Who are you?
Batman: (the "gun" is then revealed to be a stapler, unknown to Gordon)Watch for my sign.(retracts the stapler and backs off)
Gordon: You're just one man?
Batman: Now we're two.
Gordon: We?

[As Gordon is taking out the trash, he sees Batman perched on a railing next to his house.]
Batman: Storm's coming.
Gordon: The scum's getting jumpy ever since you stood up to Falcone.
Batman: It's a start. Your partner was at the docks with Falcone.
Gordon: Yeah, well, he moonlights as a low-level enforcer.
Batman: They were splitting the shipment in two. Only half went to the dealers.
Gordon: Where was it going?
Batman: Flass knows.
Gordon: He won't talk.
Batman: He'll talk to me.
Gordon: Comissioner Loeb set up a massive task force to capture you.He thinks you're dangerous.
Batman: What do you think?
Gordon: I think you're trying to help... [He sees that Batman has already left] ...but I've been wrong before.

[As Wayne takes money out of his wallet and gives it to the Homeless Man.]

Homeless Man: Okay...
[as he takes it off, Bruce prepares to throw his own into the fire.]
Homeless Man: Hey, let me have it. It's a nice coat.
[They switch coats]
Bruce Wayne: Be careful who sees you with that. They're going to come looking for me.
Homeless Man: Who?
Bruce Wayne: Everyone.
[He runs off]
[Homeless Man holds up the coat, looking at it]
Homeless Man: It's a nice coat...

Gordon: I'll get my car.

Gordon: Yours?
[the Tumbler roars past Gordon]
Gordon: I gotta get me one of those!

[Batman lands on top of a monorail support]

[Rachel is about to be murdered and pulls out a taser, the criminal runs away]
Rachel: (yelling) That's right, you better run!
[Rachel turns around to see that Batman is standing behind her, startles her and she fires the taser, Batman just looks at the cables and calmly removes them]
Batman: Falcone sent these men to kill you.
Rachel: Why?
Batman: You rattled his cage.
Rachel: (Batman throws some photos at her feet) What's this?
Batman: Leverage.
Rachel: For what?
Batman: To get things moving.
Rachel: Who are you?
Batman: Someone like you. Someone who'd rattle the cages.
[Rachel bends to pick up the photos and as she goes back up, Batman is gone]'

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?
