Read quotes from the film Batman Begins below.

Dr. Jonathan Crane: I am more than aware that you are not intimidated by *me*, Mr. Falcone. But you know who I'm working for, and when he gets here-
Carmine Falcone: He-he's coming to Gotham?
Dr. Jonathan Crane: Yes he is. And when he gets here, he's not gonna want to hear that you have endangered our operation just to get your thugs out of a little jail time.
Henri Ducard: You are just an ordinary man in a cape! That's why you couldn't fight injustice and that's why you can't stop this train!
Batman: Who said anything about stopping it?
[Ducard looks up, confused, and sees his own sword jammed into the brake panel]
Jim Gordon: [blows up the train supports] Yes!
Batman: [reverses his grip and pins Ducard to the floor] You never learned to mind your surroundings!
[Bruce has been arrested]
Chinese Police Officer: [in Mandarin] He refuses to give his name.
Chinese Police Officer: Fool, what the hell do I care what your name is? You're a criminal.
Bruce Wayne: [in Mandarin] I'm not a criminal!
Chinese Police Officer: Tell that to the guy who owned these.
[shows Bruce a box with "Wayne Enterprises" stamped on it]
Bruce Wayne: They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But the night my parents were murdered I caught a glimpse of something. I've looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge... Me.
[Bruce awakens from a nightmare]
Thomas Wayne: The bats again?
[Bruce nods]
Thomas Wayne: You know why they attacked you, don't you? They were afraid of you.
Bruce Wayne - age 8: Afraid of me?
Thomas Wayne: All creatures feel fear.
Bruce Wayne - age 8: Even the scary ones?
Thomas Wayne: Especially the scary ones.
Bruce Wayne: I will go back to Gotham and I will fight men like this, but I will not become an executioner.
Henri Ducard: Bruce, please! For your own sake. There is no turning back.
Bruce Wayne: Good morning. I'm here to see Mr. Earle.
Jessica: [without bothering to look up from her desk] Name?
Bruce Wayne: Uh... Bruce Wayne.
Lucius Fox: Well, what is it today? More spelunking?
Bruce Wayne: No. Today it's BASE-jumping.
Lucius Fox: BASE-jumping. That like parachuting?
Bruce Wayne: Kinda. Do you have any light-weight fabrics?
Lucius Fox: You know... I think I have just the thing.
Uniformed Policeman #1: At least tell me what it looks like.
[the Batmobile whizzes past]
Uniformed Policeman #1: Never mind.
Rachel Dawes: I never stopped thinking about you. About us. And when I heard you were back, I-I started to hope.
[Rachel kisses Bruce]
Rachel Dawes: But then I found out about your mask.
Bruce Wayne: Batman's just a symbol, Rachel.
Rachel Dawes: [Rachel touches Bruce's face] No, *this* is your mask. Your real face is the one that criminals now fear. The man I loved - the man who vanished - he never came back at all. But maybe he's still out there, somewhere. Maybe some day, when Gotham no longer needs Batman, I'll see him again.
